Deuxième leçon

Language: Latin

VAV - Et egressus est a filia Sion omnis decor eius. 
Facti sunt principes eius velut arietes non invenientes pascuam, 
et abierunt absque fortitudine ante faciem subsequentis.
7 ZAIN - Recordata est Jerusalem dierum afflictionis suae 
et praevaricationis omnium desiderabilium suorum 
quae habuerat a diebus antiquis. 
Cum caderet populus eius in manu hostili 
et non esset auxiliator. Viderunt eam hostes 
et deriserunt sabbata eius.
8 HETH - Peccatum peccavit Jerusalem, 
propterea instabilis facta est. 
Omnes qui glorificabant eam spreverunt illam 
quia viderunt ignominiam eius. 
Ipsa autem gemens conversa est retrorsum.
9 TETH - Sordes eius in pedibus eius, 
nec recordata est finis sui, deposita est vehementer, 
non habens consolatorem. 
Vide Domine afflictionem meam quoniam erectus est inimicus.
Jerusalem, convertere ad Dominum Deum tuum.

Segunda lección

Language: Spanish (Español) after the Latin

La Hija de Sión ha perdido todo su esplendor. 
Sus príncipes son como carneros que no encuentran pasto, 
y huyeron sin fuerzas ante el perseguidor.
Recuerda Jerusalén los días de su aflicción 
y la prevaricación de todos los 
que le eran caros en otros tiempos. 
Cuando su pueblo cayó en manos del adversario, 
no hubo quien la auxiliase. 
La vieron los enemigos y se burlaron de sus sábados.
Jerusalén pecó gravemente, 
y por eso se ha vuelto débil. 
Todos cuantos la honraban la despreciaron 
al ver su ignominia, 
y ella gimiendo, vuelve el rostro.
A sus pies solo hay suciedad. No pensó en su fin 
y cayó de manera violenta, 
sin nadie que la consolara. 
¡Mira, Señor, mi aflicción, pues el enemigo está ante mí triunfante!
¡Jerusalén, vuélvete al Señor tu Dios!
