1 “Therefore 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has brought about His word, which He pronounced against us, and against our judges who judged Yisra’ĕl, and against our sovereigns, and against our princes, and against the men of Yisra’ĕl and Yahuḏah;
2 to bring upon us great plagues, such as have never come to be under all the shamayim, as it came to be in Yerushalayim, according to that which was written in the Torah of Mosheh;
3 That a man should eat the flesh of his own son, and the flesh of his own daughter.
4 “And He has delivered them to be in subjection to all the reigns that are around us, to be a reproach and a desolation among all the people round about, where 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has scattered them.
5 “Therefore we were thrown down, and not exalted, because we have sinned against 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Elohim, and have not been obedient to His voice.
6 “To 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Elohim belongs righteousness; but unto us and to our fathers, open shame, as it is this day.
7 “For all these plagues have come upon us, which 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has pronounced against us.
8 “Yet have we not prayed before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, that every one of us might turn from the imaginations of his wicked heart.
9 “Therefore 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 watched over us for evil, and 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has brought it upon us; for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is righteous in all His works which He has Commanded us.
10 “Yet we have not listened to His voice, to walk in the Commands of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, that He has appointed us.
11 “And now, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Elohim of Yisra’ĕl, who has brought Your people out of the land of Mitsrayim with a mighty hand, and high arm, and with signs, and with wonders, and with great power, and have made Yourself a Name, as it is this day;
12 O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Elohim, we have sinned, we have done wickedly, we have dealt unrighteously in all Your Torot.
13 “Let Your wrath turn from us; for we are but a remnant left among the gentiles, where You have scattered us.
14 “Hear our prayers, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and our petitions, and deliver us for Your own sake, and give us favour in the sight of those who have led us away;
15 that all the earth may know that You are 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Elohim, because Yisra’ĕl and his descendants are called by Your Name.
16 “O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, look down from Your qodesh dwelling, and consider us; bow down Your ear, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, to hear us.
17 “Open Your eyes and see; for the dead who are in the graves, whose beings are taken from their bodies, shall neither give unto 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 praise nor righteousness;
18 but the being that is greatly tortured, which is stooped and feeble, and with eyes that fail, and the hungry being, gives You praise and righteousness, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.
19 “Therefore we do not make our humble supplication before You, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Elohim, for the righteousness of our fathers, and of our sovereigns.
20 for You have sent out Your wrath and displeasure upon us, as You have spoken by Your servants the neḇi’im, saying,
21 ‘Thus says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, “Bow down your shoulders to serve the sovereign of Baḇel; so shall you remain in the land that I gave unto your fathers.
22 “But if you do not listen to the voice of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, to serve the sovereign of Baḇel,
23 I shall cause to cease out of the cites of Yahuḏah, and from without Yerushalayim, the voice of gladness, and the voice of joy, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride; and the whole land shall be empty of inhabitants.” ’
24 “But we would not listen to Your voice, to serve the sovereign of Baḇel; therefore You have confirmed the words that You spoke by Your servants the neḇi’im, namely, that the bones of our sovereigns, and the bones of our fathers, would be removed from their place.
25 “And see, they are thrown out to the heat of the day, and to the frost of the night, and they died in great miseries by scarcity of food, by sword, and by pestilence;
26 and the House which is called by Your Name, You have laid waste, as it is to be seen this day, for the wickedness of the house of Yisra’ĕl and the house of Yahuḏah.
27 “O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Elohim, You have dealt with us according to all Your goodness, and according to all Your great kindness,
28 as You spoke by Your servant Mosheh in the day when You Commanded him to write the Torah before the children of Yisra’ĕl saying,
29 ‘If you do not hear My voice, surely this very great crowd shall be turned into a small remnant among the nations, where I shall scatter them.
30 ‘For I knew that they would not hear Me, because they are a stiff-necked people; but in the land of their captivities they shall remember themselves;
31 and shall know that I am 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 their Elohim; for I shall give them a heart, and ears to hear.
32 ‘And they shall praise Me in the land of their captivity, and think upon My Name,
33 and turn from their stiff neck, and from their wicked deeds; for they shall remember the way of their fathers, who sinned before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.
34 ‘And I shall again bring them into the land which I promised with an oath to their fathers: Aḇraham, Yitsḥaq, and Ya’aqoḇ; and they shall be masters of it, and I shall increase them, and they shall not be diminished.
35 And I shall make an everlasting Covenant with them to be their Elohim, and they shall be My people; and I shall no longer drive My people of Yisra’ĕl out of the land that I have given them.’
