The King James Version Bible

Baruch 2:4-5

  1. Moreover he hath delivered them to be in subjection to all the kingdoms that are round about us, to be as a reproach and desolation among all the people round about, where the Lord hath scattered them.

  2. Thus we were cast down, and not exalted, because we have sinned against the Lord our God, and have not been obedient unto his voice.
