Bible: Lamentations 4:8-10

4:8 ח (Khet)

Now their appearance 1  is darker than soot;

they are not recognized in the streets.

Their skin has shriveled on their bones;

it is dried up, like tree bark.

4:9 ט (Tet)

Those who died by the sword 2  are better off

than those who die of hunger, 3 

those who 4  waste away, 5 

struck down 6  from lack of 7  food. 8 

4:10 י (Yod)

The hands of tenderhearted women 9 

cooked their own children,

who became their food, 10 

when my people 11  were destroyed. 12
