Living in the midst of a city destroyed by war will trigger memories of previous beauty and glory, sad memories that make one cry. This is the book of Lamentations.

Lamentations 1

  • Once surrounded by multitudes of friends and lovers, Jerusalem in trouble sits miserably alone (v. 1-2).
  • This trouble she brought upon herself (v. 3).
  • Oh, what has become of the worship of Jehovah? (v. 4-11)
  • The LORD has done this (v. 12-17).
  • And He is just to have done so (v. 18-22).
