    4:1 How is the gold 2091 become dim 6004 8714! [how] is the most 2896 fine gold 3800 changed 8132 8799! the stones 68 of the sanctuary 6944 are poured out 8210 8691 in the top 7218 of every street 2351.

    4:2 The precious 3368 sons 1121 of Zion 6726, comparable 5537 8794 to fine gold 6337, how are they esteemed 2803 8738 as earthen 2789 pitchers 5035, the work 4639 of the hands 3027 of the potter 3335 8802!

    4:3 Even the sea monsters 8577 draw out 2502 8804 the breast 7699, they give suck 3243 8689 to their young ones 1482: the daughter 1323 of my people 5971 [is become] cruel 393, like the ostriches 3283 in the wilderness 4057.(sea…: or, sea calves)

    4:4 The tongue 3956 of the sucking child 3243 8802 cleaveth 1692 8804 to the roof of his mouth 2441 for thirst 6772: the young children 5768 ask 7592 8804 bread 3899, [and] no man breaketh 6566 8802 [it] unto them.

    4:5 They that did feed 398 8802 delicately 4574 are desolate 8074 8738 in the streets 2351: they that were brought up 539 8803 in scarlet 8438 embrace 2263 8765 dunghills 830.

    4:6 For the punishment of the iniquity 5771 of the daughter 1323 of my people 5971 is greater 1431 8799 than the punishment 2403 of the sin of Sodom 5467, that was overthrown 2015 8803 as in a moment 7281, and no hands 3027 stayed 2342 8804 on her.(punishment of the iniquity: or, iniquity)

    4:7 Her Nazarites 5139 were purer 2141 8804 than snow 7950, they were whiter 6705 8804 than milk 2461, they were more ruddy 119 8804 in body 6106 than rubies 6443, their polishing 1508 [was] of sapphire 5601:

    4:8 Their visage 8389 is blacker 2821 8804 than a coal 7815; they are not known 5234 8738 in the streets 2351: their skin 5785 cleaveth 6821 8804 to their bones 6106; it is withered 3001 8804, it is become like a stick 6086.(blacker…: Heb. darker than blackness)

    4:9 [They that be] slain 2491 with the sword 2719 are better 2896 than [they that be] slain 2491 with hunger 7458: for these 1992 pine away 2100 8799, stricken 1856 8794 through for [want of] the fruits 8570 of the field 7704.(pine…: Heb. flow out)

    4:10 The hands 3027 of the pitiful 7362 women 802 have sodden 1310 8765 their own children 3206: they were their meat 1262 8763 in the destruction 7667 of the daughter 1323 of my people 5971.

    4:11 The LORD 3068 hath accomplished 3615 8765 his fury 2534; he hath poured out 8210 8804 his fierce 2740 anger 639, and hath kindled 3341 8686 a fire 784 in Zion 6726, and it hath devoured 398 8799 the foundations 3247 thereof.

    4:12 The kings 4428 of the earth 776, and all the inhabitants 3427 8802 of the world 8398, would not have believed 539 8689 that the adversary 6862 and the enemy 341 8802 should have entered 935 8799 into the gates 8179 of Jerusalem 3389.

    4:13 For the sins 2403 of her prophets 5030, [and] the iniquities 5771 of her priests 3548, that have shed 8210 8802 the blood 1818 of the just 6662 in the midst 7130 of her,

    4:14 They have wandered 5128 8804 [as] blind 5787 [men] in the streets 2351, they have polluted 1351 8738 themselves with blood 1818, so that men could 3201 8799 not 3808 touch 5060 8799 their garments 3830.(so…: or, in that they could not but touch)

    4:15 They cried 7121 8804 unto them, Depart 5493 8798 ye; [it is] unclean 2931; depart 5493 8798, depart 5493 8798, touch 5060 8799 not: when they fled away 5132 8804 and wandered 5128 8804, they said 559 8804 among the heathen 1471, They shall no more 3254 8686 sojourn 1481 8800 [there].(it…: or, ye polluted)

    4:16 The anger 6440 of the LORD 3068 hath divided 2505 8765 them; he will no more 3254 8686 regard 5027 8687 them: they respected 5375 8804 not the persons 6440 of the priests 3548, they favoured 2603 8804 not the elders 2205.(anger: or, face)

    4:17 As for us, our eyes 5869 as yet failed 3615 8799 for our vain 1892 help 5833: in our watching 6836 we have watched 6822 8765 for a nation 1471 [that] could not save 3467 8686 [us].

    4:18 They hunt 6679 8804 our steps 6806, that we cannot go 3212 8800 in our streets 7339: our end 7093 is near 7126 8804, our days 3117 are fulfilled 4390 8804; for our end 7093 is come 935 8804.

    4:19 Our persecutors 7291 8802 are swifter 7031 than the eagles 5404 of the heaven 8064: they pursued 1814 8804 us upon the mountains 2022, they laid wait 693 8804 for us in the wilderness 4057.

    4:20 The breath 7307 of our nostrils 639, the anointed 4899 of the LORD 3068, was taken 3920 8738 in their pits 7825, of whom we said 559 8804, Under his shadow 6738 we shall live 2421 8799 among the heathen 1471.

    4:21 Rejoice 7797 8798 and be glad 8055 8798, O daughter 1323 of Edom 123, that dwellest 3427 8802 in the land 776 of Uz 5780; the cup 3563 also shall pass 5674 8799 through unto thee: thou shalt be drunken 7937 8799, and shalt make thyself naked 6168 8691.

    4:22 The punishment of thine iniquity 5771 is accomplished 8552 8804, O daughter 1323 of Zion 6726; he will no more 3254 8686 carry thee away into captivity 1540 8687: he will visit 6485 8804 thine iniquity 5771, O daughter 1323 of Edom 123; he will discover 1540 8765 thy sins 2403.(The…: or, Thine iniquity)(discover…: or, carry thee captive for thy sins)
