The prayer for sinners (Bar 1:13-1:13)

“Pray also for us

To the Lord

Our God!

We have sinned

Against the Lord

Our God!

To this day

The anger

Of the Lord

With his wrath

Have not turned

Away from us.”

The people with Baruch in Babylon wanted the people in Jerusalem to pray for them because they were sinners. God, the Lord, was still angry at them. He had not turned his anger away from them, even though they were in exile in Babylon.
