1 [a]oh, dat mah head wuz sprin ov watr An mah eyez fountain ov tears! I wud weep dai an nite 4 da slain ov mah peeps.2 [b]oh, dat i had in da desert Lodgin place 4 travelers, So dat i mite leef mah peeps An go away frum them; 4 they r all adulterers, Crowd ov unfaithful peeps.3 "they mak ready their tongue Liek bow, 2 shoot liez; It not by truth Dat they triumf [c] in da land. They go frum wan sin 2 anothr; They do not acknowledge me," Declarez teh lord.4 "beware ov ur frenz; Do not trust any ov ur peeps. 4 evry wan ov them iz deceivr, [d] An evry frend slanderr.5 frend deceivez frend, An no wan speakz teh truth. They has taught their tonguez 2 lie; They weary themselvez wif sinnin.6 u [e] liv in da midst ov decepshun; In their deceit they refuse 2 acknowledge me," Declarez teh lord.7 therefore dis ar teh wut teh lord almighty sez: "c, im gonna refine an test them, 4 wut else i can do Cuz ov teh sin ov mah peeps?8 their tongue iz deadly arrow; It speakz deceitfully. Wif their mouths they all speek cordially 2 their neighbors, But in their hearts they set traps 4 them.9 shud i not punish them 4 dis?" Declarez teh lord. "shud i not avenge myself On such nashun as dis?"10 im gonna weep an wail 4 da mountains An taek up lament concernin teh wildernes graslandz. They r desolate an untraveld, An teh lowin ov kattle iz not herd. Teh birdz has all fld An teh animals r gone.11 "im gonna mak jerusalem heap ov ruins, Haunt ov jackals; An im gonna lay waste teh towns ov judah So no wan can liv thar."12 hoo iz wize enough 2 understand dis? Hoo has been instructd by teh lord an can explain it? Y has teh land been ruind an laid waste liek desert dat no wan can cros?13 teh lord sed, "it cuz they has forsaken mah law, which i set before them; they has not obeyd me or followd mah law.14 instead, they has followd teh stubbornnes ov their hearts; they has followd teh baals, as their ancestors taught them."15 therefore, dis ar teh wut teh lord almighty, teh ceilin cat ov israel, sez: "c, im gonna mak dis peeps eat bittr fud an drink poisond watr.16 im gonna scattr them among nashuns dat neithr they nor their ancestors has known, an im gonna pursue them wif teh sword til i has made an end ov them."17 dis ar teh wut teh lord almighty sez: "considr nao! Call 4 da wailin women 2 come; Send 4 da most skillful ov them.18 let them come quickly An wail ovar us Till r eyez overflow wif tears An watr streams frum r eyelidz.19 teh sound ov wailin iz herd frum zion: How ruind we r! How great iz r shame! We must leef r land Cuz r haus r in ruins. "20 nao, u women, hear teh werd ov teh lord; Open ur ears 2 teh werdz ov his mouth. Teach ur daughters how 2 wail; Teach wan anothr lament.21 death has climbd in thru r windows An has enterd r fortresez; it has removd teh children frum teh streets An teh youths frum teh public squarez.22 say, "dis ar teh wut teh lord declarez: " ded bodiez will lie like dung on teh open field, Liek cut grain behind teh reapr, Wif no wan 2 gathr them. "23 dis ar teh wut teh lord sez: "let not teh wize boast ov their wisdom Or teh strong boast ov their strength oar teh rich boast ov their richez,24 but let dose hoo boast boast bout dis: Dat they understand an knoe me, dat i r lord, hoo exercisez kindnes, Justice an righteousnes on earth, 4 in thees i delight," Declarez teh lord.25 "teh dais r comin," declarez teh lord, "when im gonna punish all hoo r circumcisd only in da flesh— 26 egypt, judah, edom, ammon, moab an all hoo liv in da wildernes in distant placez. [f] 4 all thees nashuns r rly uncircumcisd, an even teh whole houz ov israel iz uncircumcisd in hart."
