Awake, drunkards, and weep; And wail, all you wine drinkers, On account of the sweet wine That is cut off from your mouth.

For a nation has invaded my land, Mighty and without number; Its teeth are the teeth of a lion, And it has the fangs of a lioness.
7
It has made my vine a waste And my fig tree splinters. It has stripped them bare and cast [them] away; Their branches have become white.
8
Wail like a virgin girded with sackcloth For the bridegroom of her youth.
