Lamentations 1 : 1

Sorrow in Jerusalem
 1  Jerusalem, once so full of people,
  is now deserted.
She who was once great among the nations
  now sits alone like a widow.
Once the queen of all the earth,
  she is now a slave.

<<  1 Each of the first four chapters of this book is an acrostic, laid out in the order of the Hebrew alphabet. The first word of each verse begins with a successive Hebrew letter. Chapters 1, 2, and 4 have one verse for each of the 22 Hebrew letters. Chapter 3 contains 22 stanzas of three verses each. Though chapter 5 has 22 verses, it is not an acrostic.
