Lamentations 2:1-3 Modern English Version (MEV)

The Anger of God Over Jerusalem

How the Lord has covered the daughter of Zion
    with a cloud in His anger!
He has cast down from heaven to the earth
    the beauty of Israel;
He has not remembered His footstool
    in the day of His anger.

The Lord has swallowed up without mercy
    all the habitations of Jacob;
In His wrath He has thrown down
    the strongholds of the daughter of Judah;
He has brought them down to the ground;
    He has profaned the kingdom and its princes.

He has cut off in fierce anger
    all the might of Israel;
He has drawn back His right hand
    from before the enemy.
He has burned against Jacob
    like a flaming fire, devouring all around.
