Seconde leçon de ténèbres du Jeudi...

Language: Latin

Lamed. Matribus suis dixerunt: ubi est
triticum et vinum? Cum deficerent quasi
vulnerati in plateis civitatis, cum exhalarent
animas suas in sinu matrum suarum.

Mem. Cui comparabo te? Vel cui assimilabo
te, filia Jerusalem? Cui exaequabo te et
con solabor te, virgo, filia Sion? Magna est enim
velut mare contritio tua; quis medebitur tui?

Nun. Prophetae tui viderunt tibi falsa et
stulta; nec aperiebant iniquitatem tuam, ut
te ad poenitentiam provocarent; viderunt
autem tibi assumptiones falsas, et ejectiones.

Samech. Plauserunt super te manibus omnes
transeuntes per viam; sibilaverunt et
moverunt caput suum super filiam Jeru-
salem: haeccine est urbs, dicentes, perfecti
decoris, gaudium universae terrae?
