15 All who pass along the way
(A)Clap their hands in derision at you;
They (B)hiss and shake their heads
At the daughter of Jerusalem,
“Is this the city of which they said,
(C)The perfection of beauty,
(D)A joy to all the earth’?”
16 All (E)your enemies
Have opened their mouths wide against you;
They hiss and (F)gnash their teeth.
They say, “We have (G)swallowed her up!
Surely this is the (H)day for which we waited;
We have reached it, we have seen it.”
17 The Lord has (I)done what He purposed;
He has accomplished His word
Which He commanded from days of old.
He has thrown down (J)without sparing,
And He has caused the enemy to (K)rejoice over you;
He has (L)exalted the [a]might of your adversaries.

  1. Lamentations 2:17 Lit horn

(A)Do not rejoice over me, O (B)my enemy.
Though I fall I will (C)rise;
Though I dwell in darkness, the Lord is a (D)light for me.

I will bear the indignation of the Lord
Because I have sinned against Him,
Until He (E)pleads my case and executes justice for me.
He will bring me out to the (F)light,
And I will see His [a](G)righteousness.
10 Then my enemy will see,
And shame will cover her who (H)said to me,
“Where is the Lord your God?”
My eyes will look on her;
[b]At that time she will [c]be (I)trampled down
Like mire of the streets.
