Lamentations 3:12
Context
Jeremiah's Afflictions

1I AM the man that has seen affliction by the rod of his wrath. 2He has led me, and brought me into darkness, but not into light. 3Surely against me is he turned; he turns his hand against me all the day. 4My flesh and my skin has he made old; he has broken my bones. 5He has built against me, and compassed me with gall and travail. 6He has set me in dark places, as they that be dead of old. 7He has hedged me about, that I cannot get out: he has made my chain heavy. 8Also when I cry and shout, he shuts out my prayer. 9He has enclosed my ways with hewn stone, he has made my paths crooked. 10He was to me as a bear lying in wait, and as a lion in secret places. 11He has turned aside my ways, and pulled me in pieces: he has made me desolate. 12He has bent his bow, and set me as a mark for the arrow. 13He has caused the arrows of his quiver to enter into my reins. 14I was a derision to all my people; and their song all the day. 15He has filled me with bitterness, he has made me drunken with wormwood. 16He has also broken my teeth with gravel stones, he has covered me with ashes. 17And you have removed my soul far off from peace: I forgot prosperity. 18And I said, My strength and my hope is perished from the LORD:
