Lamentations 2:1-3 International Standard Version (ISV)
The Condition of Israel
2 How the Lord in his wrath
shamed cherished Zion!
He cast down from heaven to earth
the glory of Israel,
He did not remember his footstool
in the time of his anger.
2 The Lord swallowed up without pity
all of Jacob’s habitations.
In his wrath he tore down
the strongholds of fair Judah.
He cast to the ground in dishonor
both her kingdom and its rulers.
3 In his fierce wrath he cut off
all the strength of Israel.
He withdrew his protection
as the enemy approached.
He burned Jacob like a blazing fire
consumes everything around it.
Lamentations 2:1-3 New International Version (NIV)
2 How the Lord has covered Daughter Zion
with the cloud of his anger!
He has hurled down the splendor of Israel
from heaven to earth;
he has not remembered his footstool
in the day of his anger.
2 Without pity the Lord has swallowed up
all the dwellings of Jacob;
in his wrath he has torn down
the strongholds of Daughter Judah.
He has brought her kingdom and its princes
down to the ground in dishonor.
3 In fierce anger he has cut off
every horn of Israel.
He has withdrawn his right hand
at the approach of the enemy.
He has burned in Jacob like a flaming fire
that consumes everything around it.
