Lamentations 4:7-8

7 Her princes were purer than snow,
whiter than milk;
their bodies were more ruddy than coral,
the beauty of their form
The meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain
was like sapphire.
Hebrew lapis lazuli

8 cNow their face is blacker than soot;
they are not recognized in the streets;
their skin has shriveled on their bones;
it has become as dry as wood.
