Jerusalem is left alone
    like an empty shelter in a vineyard,
like a hut left in a field of melons,
    like a city surrounded by enemies.
The Lord All-Powerful
    allowed a few of our people to live.
    Otherwise we would have been completely destroyed
    like the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.

10 Jerusalem, your rulers are like those of Sodom,
    and your people are like those of Gomorrah.
Hear the word of the Lord;
    listen to the teaching of our God!
