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.
8 Servants have become rulers over us. There was no one to redeem us from their hand.
9 We obtained our bread at the risk of our lives, before the face of the sword, in the wilderness.
10 Our skin was burned, as if by an oven, before the face of the tempest of the famine.
