Lamentations 1:1 The Voice (VOICE)
1 [a] Aaghh! Lonely is this city that once bustled with life;
Cheer is empty; like a widow, she is abandoned
and oh, so lonely.
She who was a princess, great among the nations,
has lost everything and been forced to serve as a slave.
- 1:1 A Hebrew acrostic poem. Each verse begins with a successive letter of the alphabet.
