Incipit oratio Jeremiae Prophetae

Language: Latin

Incipit oratio Jeremiae Prophetae.

Recordare Domine quid acciderit nobis; intuere et respice opprobrium nostrum.
Haereditas nostra versa est ad alienos, domus nostrae ad extraneos.
Pupilli facti sumus absque patre; matres nostrae quasi viduae.
Aquam nostram pecunia bibimus, ligna nostra pretio comparavimus.
Cervicibus nostris minabamur; lassis non dabatur requies.
Aegypto dedimus manum et Assyriis ut saturaremur pane.
Patres nostri peccaverunt et non sunt, et nos iniquitates eorum portavimus.
Servi dominati sunt nostri; non fuit qui redimeret de manu eorum.
In animabus nostris afferebamus panem nobis a facie gladii in deserto.
Pellis nostra quasi clibanus exusta est a facie tempestatum farnis.
Mulieres in Sion humiliaverunt et virgines in civitatibus Juda.
