“All our enemies have opened their mouths against us. Panic and pitfall have befallen us, devastation and destruction; My eyes run down with streams of water because of the destruction of the daughter of my people. My eyes pour down unceasingly, without stopping, until the LORD looks down and sees from heaven…. I called on Your name, O LORD, out of the lowest pit. You have heard my voice, do not hide Your ear from my prayer for relief, from my cry for help. You drew near when I called on You; You said, ‘Do not fear!'” (Lam 3:46-50, 55-57).
