Original text and translations

ALEPH. Ego vir videns paupertatem meam
 in virga indignationis ejus.

ALEPH. Me minavit, et adduxit in
 tenebras, et non in lucem.

ALEPH. Tantum in me vertit, et
 convertit manum suam tota die.

BETH. Vetustam fecit pellem meam, et
 carnem meam. Contrivit ossa mea.

 Jerusalem, Jerusalem
 convertere ad Dominum Deum tuum.

I am a man who sees my affliction
at the rod of his wrath.

He has pushed and dragged me into
darkness, and not into light.

Surely has he turned his hand against
me again and again, all the day long.

He has made old my skin and
my flesh. He has broken my bones.

Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
turn to the Lord your God.
