Journal Through the Bible: Week 75 Saturday

Lamentations chapter 5

The final poem. Jeremiah appeals to God because of the abusive treatment the people received from their captors.
The joy of our heart is ceased; our dance is turned into mourning. (verse 15)

Does God issue any commands?

  • God does not speak.

Does God make any promises?

  • God does not speak.

Does this chapter teach anything about Jesus?

  • God's reign is eternal. Jesus is the eternal God that reigns. (verse 19)

Does this chapter teach anything about yet-future events?

  • Jeremiah's prayer for restoration was answered when the remnant returned 70 years later but it will also be fulfilled when God renews Jerusalem's "days as of old." Jerusalem is where Jesus will reign and will abide with His people (the redeemed) forever.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
