Lamentations 2:1-3 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)

Under the Wrath of the Lord[a]

How the Lord, in his anger, has covered the daughter of Zion with a dark cloud!

    He threw down the beauty of Israel from heaven to earth.
    He did not remember his footstool[b] in the day of his anger.
The Lord swallowed up and did not spare the pastures[c] of Jacob.
    In his fury he tore down the fortifications of the daughter of Judah.
    He brought them down to the ground. He brought dishonor to the kingdom and its officials.
He completely chopped off the horn[d] of Israel in burning anger.
    He withdrew his right hand in the presence of the enemy.
    He burned in Jacob like a flaming fire, which consumed all around.
