  Viae Sion lugent,
  eo quod non sint qui veniant
  ad solemnitatem:
  omnes portae ejus destructae,
  sacerdotes ejus gementes;
  virgines ejus squalidae,
  et ipsa oppressa amaritudine. (Laments 1:4)
  Parvuli ejus ducti sunt in captivitatem
  ante faciem tribulantis. (Laments 1:5c)
  Jerusalem, Jerusalem.
  Convertere ad Dominum Deum tuum.
