He hath polluted the kingdom and the princes thereof.
10 The elders of the daughter of Zion sit upon the ground and keep silence;

daughter of my people,
because the children and the sucklings swoon in the streets of the city.

the wounded in the streets of the city,
when their soul was poured out into their mothers' bosom.

What thing shall I liken to thee, O daughter of Jerusalem?
What shall I equal to thee, that I may comfort thee, O virgin daughter of

at the daughter of Jerusalem, saying,
"Is this the city that men call `The perfection of beauty, the joy of the

they hiss and gnash their teeth.
They say, "We have swallowed her up. Certainly this is the day that we
we have found, we have seen it."
17 The LORD hath done that which He had devised;
He hath fulfilled His word that He had commanded in the days of old.
He hath thrown down, and hath not pitied; and He hath caused thine enemy to
rejoice over thee;
He hath set up the horn of thine adversaries.
18 Their heart cried unto the Lord.
O wall of the daughter of Zion, let tears run down like a river day and
Give thyself no rest;
let not the apple of thine eye cease.
19 Arise, cry out in the night;
in the beginning of the watches pour out thine heart like water before the
face of the Lord.
Lift up thy hands toward Him
for the life of thy young children, that faint for hunger on top of every
1 O God, why hast Thou cast us off for ever?
Why doth Thine anger smoke against the sheep of Thy pasture?
2 Remember Thy congregation, which Thou hast purchased of old,
the rod of Thine inheritance, which Thou hast redeemed, this Mount
Zion, wherein Thou hast dwelt.
3 Lift up Thy feet unto the perpetual desolations,
even all that the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary.
4 Thine enemies roar in the midst of Thy congregations;
they set up their ensigns for signs.
5 Once a man was famous according as he had lifted up axes upon the

they have defiled by casting down to the ground the dwelling place
of Thy name.
8 They said in their hearts, "Let us destroy them
They have burned up all the synagogues of God in the land.
9 We see not our signs; there is no more any prophet;
neither is there among us any that knoweth how long.
10 O God, how long shall the adversary reproach?
Shall the enemy blaspheme Thy name for ever?
11 Why withdrawest Thou Thy hand, even Thy right hand?
Pluck it out of Thy bosom!
12 For God is my King of old,
working salvation in the midst of the earth.
13 Thou didst divide the sea by Thy strength;
Thou breakest the heads of the dragons in the waters.
14 Thou breakest the heads of Leviathan in pieces,
and gavest him to be meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness.
15 Thou didst cleave the fountain and the flood;
Thou driedst up mighty rivers.
16 The day is Thine, the night also is Thine;
Thou hast prepared the light and the sun.
17 Thou hast set all the borders of the earth;
Thou hast made summer and winter.
18 Remember this, that the enemy hath reproached, O LORD,
and that the foolish people have blasphemed Thy name.
19 O deliver not the soul of Thy turtledove unto the multitude of the
forget not the congregation of Thy poor for ever.
20 Have respect unto the covenant,
for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of
21 O let not the oppressed return ashamed;
let the poor and needy praise Thy name.
22 Arise, O God, plead Thine own cause;

the tumult of those that rise up against Thee increaseth continually.
Words of Worship - Matthew 8:17b
"He Himself took our infirmities and bore our
5 And when Jesus had entered into Capernaum, there came unto Him
a centurion, beseeching Him 6 and saying, "Lord, my servant lieth at home
sick with the palsy and grievously tormented." 7 And Jesus said unto him,
"I will come and heal
8 The centurion answered and said, "Lord, I am not worthy
that Thou shouldest come under my roof. But speak the word only, and my servant
shall be healed. 9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And
I say to this man, 'Go!' and he goeth; and to another, `Come!' and he cometh;
and to my servant, 'Do this!' and he doeth it." 10 When Jesus heard it, He
marveled and said to those who followed,
"Verily I say unto you, I
have not found such great faith, no, not in Israel. 11 And I say unto you,
that many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham
and Isaac and Jacob in the Kingdom of Heaven. 12 But the children of the
kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and
gnashing of teeth."
13 And Jesus said unto the centurion,
"Go thy way, and as thou
hast believed, so be it done unto thee."
And his servant was healed in that selfsame hour.
14 And when Jesus had come into Peter's house, He saw his wife's
mother lying and sick with a fever. 15 And He touched her hand, and the fever
left her, and she arose and ministered unto them. 16 When the evening had come,
they brought unto Him many who were possessed with devils, and He cast out the
spirits with His word and healed all who were sick, 17 that it might be
fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, who said, "He Himself
took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses."
Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 21:30
There is no wisdom, nor understanding,
nor counsel against the LORD.
Morals & Values - Matthew 6:22-23
"The light of the
body is the eye. If therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of
light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be
full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee
be darkness, how great is that darkness!
