Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
(Yod) The elders of Daughter Zion sit on the ground in silence. They have thrown dirt on their heads; They have dressed in sackcloth. Jerusalem's young women stare down at the ground.
I am silent and cannot open my mouth because of what you have done.
I stay awake; I am like a solitary bird on a roof.
I did not spend my time in the company of other people, laughing and having a good time. I stayed to myself because I felt obligated to you and because I was filled with anger at what they had done.
