24 And yet does not a person trapped in ruins stretch out his hand,
and in this disaster does he not cry out for help?[a]
25 Did I not grieve for the hard days of another
or weep for the pains of the poor?
26 And yet when I longed for the good, evil came;
when I awaited the light, thick darkness arrived instead.
