Schauet doch und sehet, ob irgendein Schmerz sei wie mein Schmerz, der mich troffen hat. Denn der Herr hat mich voll Jammers gemacht am Tage seines grimmigen Zorns.
Behold and see, if there be any sorrow like my sorrow, that has come upon me. For the Lord has made me full of anguish on the day of his wrathful anger.
(Lamentations 1:12)
