Lamentations 2:17-19 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
17 The Lord has accomplished what he had planned to do.
He carried out the threat he announced long ago.
He tore you down without any pity, ⌞Jerusalem⌟.
He made your enemies gloat over you.
He raised the weapons of your opponents.
18 The hearts of Jerusalem’s people
cried out to the Lord, the wall of Zion’s people.
Let your tears run down like a river day and night.
Don’t let them stop.
Don’t let your eyes rest.
19 Get up! Cry out at night, every hour on the hour.
Pour your heart out like water in the presence of the Lord.
Lift up your hands to him ⌞in prayer⌟
for the life of your little children
who faint from hunger at every street corner.”
