Translation

Lamed.


 


They called to their mothers:


Where is the corn and the wine?


when they swooned as wounded


in the streets of the city.


 


Mem.


 


To what will I compare thee,


to what shall I liken thee,


O daughter of Jerusalem?


To what shall I equal thee, to comfort thee,


O virgin daughter of Zion?


 


Jerusalem, Jerusalem,


return to the Lord thy God.


 


(Lm. 2, 12-13)
