Translation

Heth.
 
The Lord has thought to destroy
the wall of the daughter of Zion:
he has stretched out his line
and has not turned his hand from destruction.
He has mourned before the ramparts,
and the wall he has likewise demolished.
 
Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
return to the Lord thy God.
 
[Translation: Nancho Álvarez]
