Lord God ·All-Powerful [Almighty; of Heaven’s Armies; T of hosts],
    how long will you ·be angry [L smoke/fume at us]
    at the prayers of your people?
You have fed your people ·with tears [L the bread/food of tears];
    you have made them drink ·many tears [tears by measure/L the third].
You made ·those around us fight over us [L us the strife of our neighbors],
    and our enemies ·make fun of [ridicule] us.

You have made us an object of derision[a] to our neighbors,
    and our enemies mock us.(E)
