Plorans ploravit in nocte,
et lacrimae ejus in maxillis ejus:
non est qui consoletur eam
ex omnibus caris ejus:
omnes amici ejus spreverunt eam
et facti sunt ei inimici.

She weepeth sore in the night,
and her tears are on her cheeks:
among all her lovers she hath none
to comfort her: all her friends
have dealt treacherously with her,
they are become her enemies.
