Lamentations 2:1-3 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

The Prophet Speaks Out: The Lord Destroyed Zion

    [a] “Look how the Lord has covered the people of Zion
        with the cloud of his anger!
    He has thrown down Israel’s beauty from heaven to earth.
    He didn’t even remember his footstool on the day of his anger.
The Lord swallowed up all of Jacob’s pastures without any pity.
    He tore down the fortified cities of Judah in his fury.
    He brought the kingdom of Judah and its leaders
        down to the ground in dishonor.
    In his burning anger he cut off all of Israel’s strength.
    He withdrew his right hand when they faced their enemy.
    He burned like a raging fire in the land of Jacob,
        destroying everything around him.
