3 We have become orphans without a father; our mothers are like widows.
4 We paid for our drinking water. We acquired our wood for a price.
5 We were dragged by our necks. Being weary, no rest was given to us.
6 We have given our hand to Egypt and to the Assyrians, so that we may be satisfied with bread.
7 Our fathers have sinned, and are not. And we have carried their iniquities.
