Have you utterly rejected Judah? Has Your soul loathed Zion? Why have You smitten us, and there is no healing for us? We looked for peace, and there is no good; and for the time of healing, and behold, trouble!
We acknowledge, O LORD, our wickedness, and the iniquity of our fathers; for we have sinned against You.
Do not abhor us, for Thy name’s sake, do not disgrace the throne of Thy glory; remember, break not Your covenant with us.
Are there any among the vanities of the Gentiles that can cause rain? Or can the heavens give showers? Are You not He, O LORD our God? Therefore we will wait upon You: for You have made all these things.
