‘Lamentation’ ….. mentioned in the Holy Bible (KJV)

And I will turn your feasts into mourning,
and all your songs into lamentation;
and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins,
and baldness upon every head;
and I will make it as the mourning of an only son,
and the end thereof as a bitter day. – Amo 8:10
