We are perplexed and ashamed, for we have heard reproach; Disgrace has covered our faces, For foreigners [from Babylon] have come Into the [most] sacred parts of the sanctuary of the Lord [even those places forbidden to all but the appointed priest].
We are confounded and ashamed, for we have heard reproach; confusion and shame have covered our faces, for strangers have come into the [most] sacred parts of the sanctuary of the Lord [even those forbidden for entrance by all but the high priest or the appointed priests].
“We people of Judah are disgraced, because we have been ·insulted [reproached]. ·We have been shamed [L Shame/Humiliation covers our face], because strangers have gone into the holy places of the Lord’s Temple [L house]!”
In that bittersweet moment,the remnant of My people will say, “We are ashamed—we have been insulted by invaders, and disgrace covers our faces When we think of foreigners entering the holy places of the Eternal’s temple and defiling it by their presence.”
We be shamed, for we heard shame; shame covered our faces, for aliens came on the hallowing of the house of the Lord. (We be shamed, and disgraced; yea, shame covered our faces, for strangers, or foreigners, came into the hallowed places of the House of the Lord.)
