4 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?
5 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].
6 You made ·those around us fight over us [L us the strife of our neighbors],
and our enemies ·make fun of [ridicule] us.
New International Version
4 How long,(A) Lord God Almighty,
will your anger smolder(B)
against the prayers of your people?
5 You have fed them with the bread of tears;(C)
you have made them drink tears by the bowlful.(D)
6 You have made us an object of derision[a] to our neighbors,
and our enemies mock us.(E)
