Lamentations 3:8

Hebrew Bible

6 He has made me reside in deepest darkness like those who died long ago. 7 ג (Gimel) He has walled me in so that I cannot get out; he has weighted me down with heavy prison chains. 8 Also, when I cry out desperately for help, he has shut out my prayer. 9 He has blocked every road I take with a wall of hewn stones; he has made every path impassable. 10 ד (Dalet) To me he is like a bear lying in ambush, like a hidden lion stalking its prey.

Job 19:7

Hebrew Bible

5 If indeed you would exalt yourselves above me and plead my disgrace against me, 6 know then that God has wronged me and encircled me with his net. 7If I cry out, ‘Violence!’ I receive no answer; I cry for help, but there is no justice. 8 He has blocked my way so I cannot pass and has set darkness over my paths. 9 He has stripped me of my honorand has taken the crown off my head.
