Lamentations 1:7-11

Codex Sinaiticus, Lamentations 1:7-11

Brenton's English Translation

7 [ZAIN. Jerusalem remembered the days of her affliction, and her rejection; she thought on all her desirable things which were from the days] of old, when her people fell into the hands of the oppressor, and there was none to help her: when her enemies saw it they laughed at her habitation.
8 HETH. Jerusalem has sinned a great sin; therefore has she come into tribulation, all that used to honour her have afflicted her, for they have seen her shame: yea, she herself groaned, and turned backward.
9 TETH. Her uncleanness is before her feet; she remembered not her last end; she has lowered her boasting tone, there is none to comfort her. Behold, O Lord, my affliction: for the enemy has magnified himself.
10 JOD. The oppressor has stretched out his hand on all her desirable things: for she has seen the Gentiles entering into her sanctuary, concerning whom thou didst command that they should not enter into thy congregation.
11 CHAPH. All her people groan, seeking [bread: they have given their desirable things for meat, to restore their soul: behold, Lord, and look; for she is become dishonoured.]

Rahlfs' Septuagint

7 [Ἐμνήσθη Ιερουσαλημ ἡμερῶν ταπεινώσεως αὐτῆς καὶ ἀπωσμῶν αὐτῆς, πάντα τὰ ἐπιθυμήματα αὐτῆς, ὅσα ἦν ἐξ ἡμερῶν] ἀρχαίων, ἐν τῷ πεσεῖν τὸν λαὸν αὐτῆς εἰς χεῖρας θλίβοντος καὶ οὐκ ἦν ὁ βοηθῶν αὐτῇ, ἰδόντες οἱ ἐχθροὶ αὐτῆς ἐγέλασαν ἐπὶ μετοικεσίᾳ αὐτῆς. 

8 Ἁμαρτίαν ἥμαρτεν Ιερουσαλημ, διὰ τοῦτο εἰς σάλον ἐγένετο· πάντες οἱ δοξάζοντες αὐτὴν ἐταπείνωσαν αὐτήν, εἶδον γὰρ τὴν ἀσχημοσύνην αὐτῆς, καί γε αὐτὴ στενάζουσα καὶ ἀπεστράφη ὀπίσω. 

9 Ἀκαθαρσία αὐτῆς πρὸς ποδῶν αὐτῆς, οὐκ ἐμνήσθη ἔσχατα αὐτῆς· καὶ κατεβίβασεν ὑπέρογκα, οὐκ ἔστιν ὁ παρακαλῶν αὐτήν· ἰδέ, κύριε, τὴν ταπείνωσίν μου, ὅτι ἐμεγαλύνθη ἐχθρός. 

10 Χεῖρα αὐτοῦ ἐξεπέτασεν θλίβων ἐπὶ πάντα τὰ ἐπιθυμήματα αὐτῆς· εἶδεν γὰρ ἔθνη εἰσελθόντα εἰς τὸ ἁγίασμα αὐτῆς, ἃ ἐνετείλω μὴ εἰσελθεῖν αὐτὰ εἰς ἐκκλησίαν σου. 

11 Πᾶς ὁ λαὸς αὐτῆς καταστενάζοντες, ζητοῦντες [ἄρτον, ἔδωκαν τὰ ἐπιθυμήματα αὐτῆς ἐν βρώσει τοῦ ἐπιστρέψαι ψυχήν· ἰδέ, κύριε, καὶ ἐπίβλεψον, ὅτι ἐγενήθην ἠτιμωμένη.]
