cloud in his
anger, [and] cast down from heaven unto the earth the beauty of
remembered not his footstool in the day of his anger!
LA-2:2 The Lord hath swallowed up all the habitations of Jacob,

Judah; he hath brought [them] down to the ground: he hath

and the princes thereof.
LA-2:3 He hath cut off in [his] fierce anger all the horn of
Israel: he hath
drawn back his right hand from before the enemy, and he burned
like a flaming fire, [which] devoureth round about.

LA-2:13 What thing shall I take to witness for thee? what thing
shall I liken
