(A)Jerusalem sinned grievously;
    therefore she became filthy;
all who honored her despise her,
    (B)for they have seen her nakedness;
she herself (C)groans
    and turns her face away.

11 All her people (A)groan
    as (B)they search for bread;
they trade their (C)treasures for (D)food
    to revive their strength.
“Look, O Lord, and see,
    for I am despised.”

21 “They heard[a] (A)my groaning,
    yet (B)there is no one to comfort me.
All my enemies have heard of my trouble;
    (C)they are glad that you have done it.
You have brought[b] the day you announced;
    (D)now let them be as I am.

22 (E)“Let all their evildoing come before you,
    and deal with them
as (F)you have dealt with me
    because of all my transgressions;
for (G)my groans are many,
    and (H)my heart is faint.”
