Lamentations chapter 3

Flash Needs to be Turned On
1
I am the man that hath seen affliction by the rod of his wrath.
2
He hath led me, and brought me into darkness, but not into light.
3
Surely against me is he turned; he turneth his hand against me all the day.
4
My flesh and my skin hath he made old; he hath broken my bones.
5
He hath builded against me, and compassed me with gall and travail.
6
He hath set me in dark places, as they that be dead of old.
7
He hath hedged me about, that I cannot get out: he hath made my chain heavy.
8
Also when I cry and shout, he shutteth out my prayer.
9
He hath inclosed my ways with hewn stone, he hath made my paths crooked.
10
He was unto me as a bear lying in wait, and as a lion in secret places.
11
He hath turned aside my ways, and pulled me in pieces: he hath made me desolate.
12
He hath bent his bow, and set me as a mark for the arrow.
13
He hath caused the arrows of his quiver to enter into my reins.
14
I was a derision to all my people; and their song all the day.
15
He hath filled me with bitterness, he hath made me drunken with wormwood.
16
He hath also broken my teeth with gravel stones, he hath covered me with ashes.
17
And thou hast removed my soul far off from peace: I forgat prosperity.
18
And I said, My strength and my hope is perished from the LORD:
19
Remembering mine affliction and my misery, the wormwood and the gall.
20
My soul hath them still in remembrance, and is humbled in me.
21
This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.
22
It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
23
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
24
The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
25
The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.
26
It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.
27
It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth.
28
He sitteth alone and keepeth silence, because he hath borne it upon him.
29
He putteth his mouth in the dust; if so be there may be hope.
30
He giveth his cheek to him that smiteth him: he is filled full with reproach.
31
For the Lord will not cast off for ever:
32
But though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies.
33
For he doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.
34
To crush under his feet all the prisoners of the earth,
35
To turn aside the right of a man before the face of the most High,
36
To subvert a man in his cause, the Lord approveth not.
37
Who is he that saith, and it cometh to pass, when the Lord commandeth it not?
38
Out of the mouth of the most High proceedeth not evil and good?
39
Wherefore doth a living man complain, a man for the punishment of his sins?
40
Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the LORD.
41
Let us lift up our heart with our hands unto God in the heavens.
42
We have transgressed and have rebelled: thou hast not pardoned.
43
Thou hast covered with anger, and persecuted us: thou hast slain, thou hast not pitied.
44
Thou hast covered thyself with a cloud, that our prayer should not pass through.
45
Thou hast made us as the offscouring and refuse in the midst of the people.
46
All our enemies have opened their mouths against us.
47
Fear and a snare is come upon us, desolation and destruction.
48
Mine eye runneth down with rivers of water for the destruction of the daughter of my people.
49
Mine eye trickleth down, and ceaseth not, without any intermission,
50
Till the LORD look down, and behold from heaven.
51
Mine eye affecteth mine heart because of all the daughters of my city.
52
Mine enemies chased me sore, like a bird, without cause.
53
They have cut off my life in the dungeon, and cast a stone upon me.
54
Waters flowed over mine head; then I said, I am cut off.
55
I called upon thy name, O LORD, out of the low dungeon.
56
Thou hast heard my voice: hide not thine ear at my breathing, at my cry.
57
Thou drewest near in the day that I called upon thee: thou saidst, Fear not.
58
O Lord, thou hast pleaded the causes of my soul; thou hast redeemed my life.
59
O LORD, thou hast seen my wrong: judge thou my cause.
60
Thou hast seen all their vengeance and all their imaginations against me.
61
Thou hast heard their reproach, O LORD, and all their imaginations against me;
62
The lips of those that rose up against me, and their device against me all the day.
63
Behold their sitting down, and their rising up; I am their musick.
64
Render unto them a recompence, O LORD, according to the work of their hands.
65
Give them sorrow of heart, thy curse unto them.
66
Persecute and destroy them in anger from under the heavens of the LORD.

Lamentations chapter 4

Flash Needs to be Turned On
1
How is the gold become dim! how is the most fine gold changed! the stones of the sanctuary are poured out in the top of every street.
2
The precious sons of Zion, comparable to fine gold, how are they esteemed as earthen pitchers, the work of the hands of the potter!
3
Even the sea monsters draw out the breast, they give suck to their young ones: the daughter of my people is become cruel, like the ostriches in the wilderness.
4
The tongue of the sucking child cleaveth to the roof of his mouth for thirst: the young children ask bread, and no man breaketh it unto them.
5
They that did feed delicately are desolate in the streets: they that were brought up in scarlet embrace dunghills.
6
For the punishment of the iniquity of the daughter of my people is greater than the punishment of the sin of Sodom, that was overthrown as in a moment, and no hands stayed on her.
7
Her Nazarites were purer than snow, they were whiter than milk, they were more ruddy in body than rubies, their polishing was of sapphire:
8
Their visage is blacker than a coal; they are not known in the streets: their skin cleaveth to their bones; it is withered, it is become like a stick.
9
They that be slain with the sword are better than they that be slain with hunger: for these pine away, stricken through for want of the fruits of the field.
10
The hands of the pitiful women have sodden their own children: they were their meat in the destruction of the daughter of my people.
11
The LORD hath accomplished his fury; he hath poured out his fierce anger, and hath kindled a fire in Zion, and it hath devoured the foundations thereof.
12
The kings of the earth, and all the inhabitants of the world, would not have believed that the adversary and the enemy should have entered into the gates of Jerusalem.
13
For the sins of her prophets, and the iniquities of her priests, that have shed the blood of the just in the midst of her,
14
They have wandered as blind men in the streets, they have polluted themselves with blood, so that men could not touch their garments.
15
They cried unto them, Depart ye; it is unclean; depart, depart, touch not: when they fled away and wandered, they said among the heathen, They shall no more sojourn there.
16
The anger of the LORD hath divided them; he will no more regard them: they respected not the persons of the priests, they favoured not the elders.
17
As for us, our eyes as yet failed for our vain help: in our watching we have watched for a nation that could not save us.
18
They hunt our steps, that we cannot go in our streets: our end is near, our days are fulfilled; for our end is come.
19
Our persecutors are swifter than the eagles of the heaven: they pursued us upon the mountains, they laid wait for us in the wilderness.
20
The breath of our nostrils, the anointed of the LORD, was taken in their pits, of whom we said, Under his shadow we shall live among the heathen.
21
Rejoice and be glad, O daughter of Edom, that dwellest in the land of Uz; the cup also shall pass through unto thee: thou shalt be drunken, and shalt make thyself naked.
22
The punishment of thine iniquity is accomplished, O daughter of Zion; he will no more carry thee away into captivity: he will visit thine iniquity, O daughter of Edom; he will discover thy sins.

Lamentations chapter 5

1
Remember, O LORD, what is come upon us: consider, and behold our reproach.
2
Our inheritance is turned to strangers, our houses to aliens.
3
We are orphans and fatherless, our mothers are as widows.
4
We have drunken our water for money; our wood is sold unto us.
5
Our necks are under persecution: we labour, and have no rest.
6
We have given the hand to the Egyptians, and to the Assyrians, to be satisfied with bread.
7
Our fathers have sinned, and are not; and we have borne their iniquities.
8
Servants have ruled over us: there is none that doth deliver us out of their hand.
9
We gat our bread with the peril of our lives because of the sword of the wilderness.
10
Our skin was black like an oven because of the terrible famine.
11
They ravished the women in Zion, and the maids in the cities of Judah.
12
Princes are hanged up by their hand: the faces of elders were not honoured.
13
They took the young men to grind, and the children fell under the wood.
14
The elders have ceased from the gate, the young men from their musick.
15
The joy of our heart is ceased; our dance is turned into mourning.
16
The crown is fallen from our head: woe unto us, that we have sinned!
17
For this our heart is faint; for these things our eyes are dim.
18
Because of the mountain of Zion, which is desolate, the foxes walk upon it.
19
Thou, O LORD, remainest for ever; thy throne from generation to generation.
20
Wherefore dost thou forget us for ever, and forsake us so long time?
21
Turn thou us unto thee, O LORD, and we shall be turned; renew our days as of old.
22
But thou hast utterly rejected us; thou art very wroth against us.

2 Corinthians chapter 7

1
Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
2
Receive us; we have wronged no man, we have corrupted no man, we have defrauded no man.
3
I speak not this to condemn you: for I have said before, that ye are in our hearts to die and live with you.
4
Great is my boldness of speech toward you, great is my glorying of you: I am filled with comfort, I am exceeding joyful in all our tribulation.
5
For, when we were come into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we were troubled on every side; without were fightings, within were fears.
6
Nevertheless God, that comforteth those that are cast down, comforted us by the coming of Titus;
7
And not by his coming only, but by the consolation wherewith he was comforted in you, when he told us your earnest desire, your mourning, your fervent mind toward me; so that I rejoiced the more.
8
For though I made you sorry with a letter, I do not repent, though I did repent: for I perceive that the same epistle hath made you sorry, though it were but for a season.
9
Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing.
10
For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
11
For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what revenge! In all things ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter.
12
Wherefore, though I wrote unto you, I did it not for his cause that had done the wrong, nor for his cause that suffered wrong, but that our care for you in the sight of God might appear unto you.
13
Therefore we were comforted in your comfort: yea, and exceedingly the more joyed we for the joy of Titus, because his spirit was refreshed by you all.
14
For if I have boasted any thing to him of you, I am not ashamed; but as we spake all things to you in truth, even so our boasting, which I made before Titus, is found a truth.
15
And his inward affection is more abundant toward you, whilst he remembereth the obedience of you all, how with fear and trembling ye received him.
16
I rejoice therefore that I have confidence in you in all things.

2 Corinthians chapter 8

1
Moreover, brethren, we do you to wit of the grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia;
2
How that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded unto the riches of their liberality.
3
For to their power, I bear record, yea, and beyond their power they were willing of themselves;
4
Praying us with much intreaty that we would receive the gift, and take upon us the fellowship of the ministering to the saints.
5
And this they did, not as we hoped, but first gave their own selves to the Lord, and unto us by the will of God.
6
Insomuch that we desired Titus, that as he had begun, so he would also finish in you the same grace also.
7
Therefore, as ye abound in every thing, in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to us, see that ye abound in this grace also.
8
I speak not by commandment, but by occasion of the forwardness of others, and to prove the sincerity of your love.
9
For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.
10
And herein I give my advice: for this is expedient for you, who have begun before, not only to do, but also to be forward a year ago.
11
Now therefore perform the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have.
12
For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not.
13
For I mean not that other men be eased, and ye burdened:
14
But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want, that their abundance also may be a supply for your want: that there may be equality:
15
As it is written, He that had gathered much had nothing over; and he that had gathered little had no lack.
16
But thanks be to God, which put the same earnest care into the heart of Titus for you.
17
For indeed he accepted the exhortation; but being more forward, of his own accord he went unto you.
18
And we have sent with him the brother, whose praise is in the gospel throughout all the churches;
19
And not that only, but who was also chosen of the churches to travel with us with this grace, which is administered by us to the glory of the same Lord, and declaration of your ready mind:
20
Avoiding this, that no man should blame us in this abundance which is administered by us:
21
Providing for honest things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men.
22
And we have sent with them our brother, whom we have oftentimes proved diligent in many things, but now much more diligent, upon the great confidence which I have in you.
23
Whether any do enquire of Titus, he is my partner and fellowhelper concerning you: or our brethren be enquired of, they are the messengers of the churches, and the glory of Christ.
24
Wherefore shew ye to them, and before the churches, the proof of your love, and of our boasting on your behalf.
