(Lam 3:1) I {am} the man {that} hath seen affliction by the rod of his wrath.
(Lam 3:2) He hath led me, and brought {me into} darkness, but not {into} light.
(Lam 3:3) Surely against me is he turned; he turneth his hand {against me} all the day.
(Lam 3:4) My flesh and my skin hath he made old; he hath broken my bones.
(Lam 3:5) He hath builded against me, and compassed {me} with gall and travail.
(Lam 3:6) He hath set me in dark places, as {they that be} dead of old.
(Lam 3:7) He hath hedged me about, that I cannot get out: he hath made my chain heavy.
(Lam 3:8) Also when I cry and shout, he shutteth out my prayer.
(Lam 3:9) He hath inclosed my ways with hewn stone, he hath made my paths crooked.
(Lam 3:10) He {was} unto me {as} a bear lying in wait, {and as} a lion in secret places.
(Lam 3:11) He hath turned aside my ways, and pulled me in pieces: he hath made me desolate.
(Lam 3:12) He hath bent his bow, and set me as a mark for the arrow.
(Lam 3:13) He hath caused the arrows of his quiver to enter into my reins.
(Lam 3:14) I was a derision to all my people; {and} their song all the day.
(Lam 3:15) He hath filled me with bitterness, he hath made me drunken with wormwood.
(Lam 3:16) He hath also broken my teeth with gravel stones, he hath covered me with ashes.
(Lam 3:17) And thou hast removed my soul far off from peace: I forgat prosperity.
(Lam 3:18) And I said, My strength and my hope is perished from the Lord:
(Lam 3:19) Remembering mine affliction and my misery, the wormwood and the gall.
(Lam 3:20) My soul hath {them} still in remembrance, and is humbled in me.
(Lam 3:21) This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.
(Lam 3:22) {It is of} the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
(Lam 3:23) {They are} new every morning: great {is} thy faithfulness.
(Lam 3:24) The Lord {is} my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
(Lam 3:25) The Lord {is} good unto them that wait for him, to the soul {that} seeketh him.
(Lam 3:26) {It is} good that {a man} should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.
(Lam 3:27) {It is} good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth.
(Lam 3:28) He sitteth alone and keepeth silence, because he hath borne {it} upon him.
(Lam 3:29) He putteth his mouth in the dust; if so be there may be hope.
(Lam 3:30) He giveth {his} cheek to him that smiteth him: he is filled full with reproach.
(Lam 3:31) For the Lord will not cast off for ever:
(Lam 3:32) But though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies.
(Lam 3:33) For he doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.
(Lam 3:34) To crush under his feet all the prisoners of the earth.
(Lam 3:35) To turn aside the right of a man before the face of the most High,
(Lam 3:36) To subvert a man in his cause, the Lord approveth not.
(Lam 3:37) Who {is} he {that} saith, and it cometh to pass, {when} the Lord commandeth {it} not?
(Lam 3:38) Out of the mouth of the most High proceedeth not evil and good?
(Lam 3:39) Wherefore doth a living man complain, a man for the punishment of his sins?
(Lam 3:40) Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the Lord.
(Lam 3:41) Let us lift up our heart with {our} hands unto God in the heavens.
(Lam 3:42) We have transgressed and have rebelled: thou hast not pardoned.
(Lam 3:43) Thou hast covered with anger, and persecuted us: thou hast slain, thou hast not pitied.
(Lam 3:44) Thou hast covered thyself with a cloud, that {our} prayer should not pass through.
(Lam 3:45) Thou hast made us {as} the offscouring and refuse in the midst of the people.
(Lam 3:46) All our enemies have opened their mouths against us.
(Lam 3:47) Fear and a snare is come upon us, desolation and destruction.
(Lam 3:48) Mine eye Runneth down with rivers of water for the destruction of the daughter of my people.
(Lam 3:49) Mine eye trickleth down, and ceaseth not, without any intermission.
(Lam 3:50) Till the Lord look down, and behold from heaven.
(Lam 3:51) Mine eye affecteth mine heart because of all the daughters of my city.
(Lam 3:52) Mine enemies chased me sore, like a bird, without cause.
(Lam 3:53) They have cut off my life in the dungeon, and cast a stone upon me.
(Lam 3:54) Waters flowed over mine head; {then} I said, I am cut off.
(Lam 3:55) I called upon thy name, O Lord, out of the low dungeon.
(Lam 3:56) Thou hast heard my voice: hide not thine ear at my breathing, at my cry.
(Lam 3:57) Thou drewest near in the day {that} I called upon thee: thou saidst, Fear not.
(Lam 3:58) O Lord, thou hast pleaded the causes of my soul; thou hast redeemed my life.
(Lam 3:59) O Lord, thou hast seen my wrong: judge thou my cause.
(Lam 3:60) Thou hast seen all their vengeance {and} all their imaginations against me.
(Lam 3:61) Thou hast heard their reproach, O Lord, {and} all their imaginations against me;
(Lam 3:62) The lips of those that rose up against me, and their device against me all the day.
(Lam 3:63) Behold their sitting down, and their rising up; I {am} their musick.
(Lam 3:64) Render unto them a recompence, O Lord, according to the work of their hands.
(Lam 3:65) Give them sorrow of heart, thy curse unto them.
(Lam 3:66) Persecute and destroy them in anger from under the heavens of the Lord.
