37 (A)Who has spoken and it came to pass,
    unless the Lord has commanded it?
38 (B)Is it not from the mouth of the Most High
    that good and bad come?
39 (C)Why should a living man complain,
    a man, about the punishment of his sins?

40 Let us test and examine our ways,
    (D)and return to the Lord!
41 (E)Let us lift up our hearts and hands
    to God in heaven:
42 (F)“We have transgressed and (G)rebelled,
    and you have not forgiven.

43 “You have wrapped yourself with anger and pursued us,
    (H)killing without pity;
44 (I)you have wrapped yourself with a cloud
    so that no prayer can pass through.
45 (J)You have made us scum and garbage
    among the peoples.

46 (K)“All our enemies
    open their mouths against us;
47 (L)panic and pitfall have come upon us,
    devastation and (M)destruction;
48 (N)my eyes flow with rivers of tears
    because of the destruction of the daughter of my people.

49 (O)“My eyes will flow without ceasing,
    without respite,
50 (P)until the Lord from heaven
    looks down and sees;
51 my eyes cause me grief
    at the fate of all the daughters of my city.
