and I disregarded your commandments. So you have handed us over to plunder, captivity, and death. We have become a parable and the object of chatter and scorn among all the nations to which you have scattered us.
I beg you, treat me with kindness. Do not punish me for my sins, not even for sins of which I am unaware. My ancestors rebelled and disobeyed your commands, but do not punish me for their sins. You let our people be plundered, taken captive and killed. You made an example of our people, an object of contempt and disgrace in all the nations where you scattered us.
For we obeyed [or obeished] not to thy commandments, and therefore we be taken into rifling [or into wasting], and into captivity, and into death, and into a fable or jangling, and into shame [or into reproof] to all nations, among which thou hast scattered us.
