Chapter 2 19 Therefore we do not make our humble supplication before thee, O Lord our God, for the righteousness of our fathers, and of our kings.20 For thou hast sent out thy wrath and indignation upon us, as thou hast spoken by thy servants the prophets, saying,21 Thus saith the Lord, Bow down your shoulders to serve the king of Babylon: so shall ye remain in the land that I gave unto your fathers.22 But if ye will not hear the voice of the Lord, to serve the king of Babylon,23 I will cause to cease out of the cites of Judah, and from without Jerusalem, the voice of mirth, and the voice of joy, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride: and the whole land shall be desolate of inhabitants.24 But we would not hearken unto thy voice, to serve the king of Babylon: therefore hast thou made good the words that thou spakest by thy servants the prophets, namely, that the bones of our kings, and the bones of our fathers, should be taken out of their place.25 And, lo, they are cast out to the heat of the day, and to the frost of the night, and they died in great miseries by famine, by sword, and by pestilence.26 And the house which is called by thy name hast thou laid waste, as it is to be seen this day, for the wickedness of the house of Israel and the house of Juda.27 O Lord our God, thou hast dealt with us after all thy goodness, and according to all that great mercy of thine,28 As thou spakest by thy servant Moses in the day when thou didst command him to write the law before the children of Israel, saying,29 If ye will not hear my voice, surely this very great multitude shall be turned into a small number among the nations, where I will scatter them.30 For I knew that they would not hear me, because it is a stiffnecked people: but in the land of their captivities they shall remember themselves.31 And shall know that I am the Lord their God: for I will give them an heart, and ears to hear:32 And they shall praise me in the land of their captivity, and think upon my name,33 And return from their stiff neck, and from their wicked deeds: for they shall remember the way of their fathers, which sinned before the Lord.34 And I will bring them again into the land which I promised with an oath unto their fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and they shall be lords of it: and I will increase them, and they shall not be diminished.35 And I will make an everlasting covenant with them to be their God, and they shall be my people: and I will no more drive my people of Israel out of the land that I have given them.

Chapter 3 1 O Lord Almighty, God of Israel, the soul in anguish the troubled spirit, crieth unto thee.2 Hear, O Lord, and have mercy; ar thou art merciful: and have pity upon us, because we have sinned before thee.3 For thou endurest for ever, and we perish utterly.
