I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me.
King James Bible
My soul hath them still in remembrance, and is humbled in me.
American Standard Version
My soul hath them still in remembrance, and is bowed down within me.
Young's Literal Translation
Remember well, and bow down doth my soul in me.
Lamentations 3:20 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
By soul - is humbled in me - It is evident that in the preceding verses there is a bitterness of complaint against the bitterness of adversity, that is not becoming to man when under the chastising hand of God; and, while indulging this feeling, all hope fled. Here we find a different feeling; he humbles himself under the mighty hand of God, and then his hope revives, Lamentations 3:21.
