Good Friday Lamentation

Heth
God determined to lay in ruins the wall of the daughter of Zion;
marked it off by the line; restrained not from destroying;
caused rampart and wall to lament, they languish together.

Teth
Her gates have sunk into the ground;
God has ruined and broken her bars;
her ruler and leaders are among the nations;
the law is no more,
and her prophets obtain no vision from God.

Aleph
I am the one who has seen affliction under the rod of God's wrath;
God has driven me and brought me into darkness
without any light;
against me alone God turns again and again the whole day long.

Beth
God has made my flesh and my skin waste away,
and broken my bones;
has besieged and enveloped me with bitterness and tribulation;
has made me dwell in darkness like the dead of long ago.

(Lamentation 2:8-9; 3:1-6)
