Lament Over Judah

1 Oh that my head were waters and my eyes a fountain of tears that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people! 2 Oh that I had in the desert
A wayfarers’ lodging place;
That I might leave my people
And go from them!
For all of them are adulterers,
An assembly of treacherous men.
3 And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies, but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth for they proceed from evil to evil, and they did not recognize me, said the LORD.
