Lamentations 1:4, 19
The roads to Zion mourn, because no one comes to her appointed feasts. All her gates are deserted; her priests groan, her maidens grieve, and she herself is bitter with anguish. . . .
The elders of the Daughter of Zion sit on the ground in silence. They have thrown dust on their heads and put on sackcloth. The young women of Jerusalem have bowed their heads to the ground.
You are to appoint judges and officials for your tribes in every town the LORD your God is giving you. They are to judge the people with righteous judgment.
When I went out to the city gate and took my seat in the public square, . . .
But now they mock me, men younger than I am, whose fathers I would have refused to put with my sheep dogs.
Isaiah 3:2, 3
the mighty man and the warrior, the judge and the prophet, the soothsayer and the elder, . . .
My harp is tuned to mourning and my flute to the sound of weeping.
The new wine dries up; the vine withers. All the merrymakers now groan. . . .
I will remove from the cities of Judah and the streets of Jerusalem the sounds of joy and gladness and the voices of the bride and bridegroom, for the land will become a wasteland."
For this is what the LORD of Hosts, the God of Israel, says: I am going to remove from this place, before your very eyes and in your days, the sounds of joy and gladness, the voices of the groom and the bride.
Moreover, I will banish from them the sounds of joy and gladness, the voices of the bride and bridegroom, the sound of the millstones, and the light of the lamp.
So I will silence the sound of your songs, and the music of your lyres will no longer be heard.
And the sound of harpists and musicians, of flute players and trumpeters, will never ring out in you again. Nor will any craftsmen of any trade be found in you again, nor the sound of a millstone be heard in you again.
