Lamentations 3:1-9

God’s Steadfast Love Endures

3I am one who has seen affliction
   under the rod of God’s * wrath;
2 he has driven and brought me
   into darkness without any light;
3 against me alone he turns his hand,
   again and again, all day long.


4 He has made my flesh and my skin waste away,
   and broken my bones;
5 he has besieged and enveloped me
   with bitterness and tribulation;
6 he has made me sit in darkness
   like the dead of long ago.


7 He has walled me about so that I cannot escape;
   he has put heavy chains on me;
8 though I call and cry for help,
   he shuts out my prayer;
9 he has blocked my ways with hewn stones,
   he has made my paths crooked.
