5 Our necks [are] under persecution: we labor, [and] have no rest.
6 We have given the hand [to] the Egyptians, [and to] the Assyrians, to be satisfied with bread.
7 Our fathers have sinned, [and are] not; and we have borne their iniquities.
8 Servants have ruled over us: [there is] none that doth deliver [us] out of their hand.
9 We procured our bread with [the peril of] our lives, because of the sword of the wilderness.
