[photo: from Lamentations 2] The horn of Israel is cut off in anger, and a fire shall consume Jacob as a fiery flame all around, killing all the precious ones in the tent of the daughter of Zion. He poured out his anger like fire. Pour out your tears like a river day and night. Don't allow yourself a moment's rest. Let your eye's pupil not cease to cry.
