Lamentations 1:2

She weeps bitterly in the night, and her tears are on her cheeks: among all her lovers she has none to comfort her: all her friends have dealt treacherously with her, they have become her enemies.

Interlinear Gloss

AD 1480
Beth- the ‘house’ of Jacob Weeping- the Church, the soul; inwardly she has wept- the house of God, the people of Israel; outwardly in the night- since it is not proper in the day; the adversity of the world, the blindness of her sins; alien to the true light and her tears are on her checks- prelates, consciences; teachers, by whose service the food of the soul is given to the little ones there is none to comfort her- while she is IN THE NIGHT; this pertains particularly to the last captivity. For from that time they have had neither prince nor priest; in Babylon, however, they had comforters, Daniel, Ezekiel and many others among all them that were dear to her- prophets, priests, kings; friends formerly flattering; perverted desires; saints or angels all- who are also dear; gentiles, who were joined to them in friendship her friends- angels have despised her- whom God spurns and have become her- with whom God is annoyed enemies- when they remove their aid
