The hearts [of the inhabitants of Jerusalem] cried to the Lord. [Then to the congregation, I, Jeremiah, cried, addressing the wall as its symbol] O wall of the Daughter of Zion, let tears run down like a river day and night; give yourself no rest, let not your eyes stop [shedding tears].
·The people [L Their hearts] cry out to the Lord. Wall of ·Jerusalem [L the daughter of Zion; C the location of the Temple], let your tears flow like a ·river [torrent; wadi] day and night. Do not ·stop [L allow yourself relaxation] or let your eyes rest.
Raise your cry to the Lord with all your might! Take no relief; be ceaseless in grief. Lady Jerusalem: Oh walls, may your stones cry out, cry out for daughter Zion; Make rivers with tears of sorrow, rushing. Do not cease from your weeping.
The heart of them cried to the Lord, on the walls of the daughter of Zion; lead thou forth tears as a strand, by day and night (lead thou forth tears like a stream, both day and night); give thou not rest to thee, neither the apple of thine eye be still.
