Psalm 42:3; Psalm 102:9; 1 Kings 22:27; Isaiah 30:20

xMy tears have been my food

day and night,

ywhile they say to me all the day long,

Where is your God?

For I eat ashes like bread

and qmingle tears with my drink,

27 and say, Thus says the king, kPut this fellow in prison and feed him meager rations of bread and water, luntil I come in peace.

20 And though the Lord give you the sbread of adversity and the swater of affliction, tyet your Teacher will not hide himself anymore, but your eyes shall see your Teacher.
