Blow up the trumpet in Sion;
sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather the people and sanctify the congregation.
Assemble the elders, gather the children and those that suck the breasts.
Let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.
Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar,
and let them say: spare thy people, O Lord.
And give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them.
Spare thy people, O Lord.
Wherefore should they say among the people: where is their God?
