Lamentations 3 ©
The prophet bewaileth his own calamities: he acknowledgeth God's mercies and truth to be a proper ground of patient hope: he maketh humble confession of the sins which had drawn down God's severe judgments: he prayeth to be avenged of his enemies.
pHe hath caused the 1arrows of his quiver to enter into my reins.
My soul hath them still in remembrance, and is 6humbled in me.
But though lhe cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies.
To subvert a man in his cause, the Lord 11approveth not.
Wherefore doth a living man 12complain, a man for the punishment of his sins?
Mine eye trickleth down, and ceaseth not, without any intermission,
Mine eye affecteth 13mine heart 14because of call the daughters of my city.
Thou hast heard their reproach, O LORD, and all their imaginations against me;
The lips of those that rose up against me, and their device against me all the day.
