5 Our pursuers are on our necks: we are weary, we have no rest.
6 We have given the hand to Egypt, [and] to Asshur, to be satisfied with bread.
7 Our fathers have sinned, [and] they are not; and we bear their iniquities.
8 Bondmen rule over us: there is no deliverer out of their hand.
9 We have to get our bread at the risk of our lives, because of the sword of the wilderness.
