Lamentations 2:3-5 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

    In his burning anger he cut off all of Israel’s strength.
    He withdrew his right hand when they faced their enemy.
    He burned like a raging fire in the land of Jacob,
        destroying everything around him.
    Like an enemy he bent his bow.
    Like an opponent his right hand held the arrow steady.
    He killed all the beautiful people.
    He poured out his fury like fire on the tent of Zion’s people.
The Lord became an enemy.
    He swallowed up Israel.
    He swallowed up all of its palaces.
    He destroyed its strongholds.
    He made the people of Judah mourn and moan.
