    Hello dear Christians!

    We can see from this Chapter that there is a point where God withdraws his protection from a nation.

    We can rest assured that if we follow the light of the world, Jesus Christ, that we ,through prayer, can utilize Divine protection in a time of need! I recall Psalm 18: 1-2. The Lord is our Rock, and are fortress and are deliverer.

    Pray as much as you can in these last days. God bless you!

    This could have been the actual state of situations at that time. It is literal instruction to cry to God for help, in these ways. To cry out to God for your children. It is also be prophetic for times past & future. Matthew 24:7 , Mark 13:8 , Luke 21:11 , Revelation 18:8

    Solemn Feasts were the made up, concocted feasts devised to falsely give honor praise to false gods like The Queen of Heaven discussed in Jeremiah. The Holy Sabbath was God's Day for Man to Rest focus on HIM ALONE. Not some wooden, stone or grove site that man decided was his god. What God is saying here in verse 6 is ALL OF THEM HAVE BEEN POLLUTED BY SIN HE HAS TAKEN ALL AWAY.

  • Sharon on Lamentations 2 - 5 years ago
    How much should God tolerate? How much can we tolerate in sin. If earthly parents can punish their children, why should God not punish us. God changes not from the begiing to end, Men are always changing and no rules of man can overide God word. God gave us His best. Jesus paid the price for our sins, but it seem as if many people desire desire change back for the price Jesus paid for our sins.

    Follow God's word not the word of man

    America has been know as the country of freedom, love, and opportunity. What do we see now? Our city's being destroyed by hurricanes, earthquakes, and yet we continue to disobey God's word. God sent Jesus to die for sins so we can have eternal life. We are living in a sinful world. Revelation tells us what will happen when Jesus returns. Repent before it is too late. We are living the Bible

    You can tell by which Chapters are filled with comments and discussion and which ones are notably avoided what people gravitate to and what they are uncomfortable with. In nearly every single movie or play that has a Preacher warning of wrath and hell fire, they are portrayed as ugly and cruel, and the whole subject is then made a mockery. But Jesus, the Author of love, very much taught about it!
  • Michael C. on Lamentations 2 - 7 years ago
    It is a great mystery to many, how that the Lord Jesus should be delivered into the hands of sinners; and that we in turn, follow in His steps, as sheep for slaughter. Perhaps it is because, we simply have not the capacity to grasp the magnitude of Israel's sin, in having forfeited the throne of David, and so, their kingdom; and that the world dominion is given to the heathen till Christ returns.

    According to my KJV study bible vs. 20, they were starving in the streets and even subjected to cannibalism. It was a horrible time in the history and now we as a nation are doing the same that they did. It shows what happens when we as a nation turn from God.
  • Bob K on Lamentations 2:15 - 9 years ago
    That description is also . "a prophecy of what will happen in the world tomorrow: God 's people will once again be " The perfection of beauty, The joy of the whole earth. " What a beautiful prophecy.
  • Jesus on Lamentations 2:20 - 9 years ago
    what does of a span long mean
  • Tanya on Lamentations 2 - 10 years ago
    This chapter of lamentations is an example of how God will punish the world, for the sins done in the present and future years. God is loving, but also sure for his saying that one day he will judge the world.
  • Concern Sister on Lamentations 2 - 10 years ago
    Reading this text made me think about our Christians brothers & sisters Foreign countries that suffering severe persecution; sold into slavery, shackle and chained, dismembered because of their belief in Jesus Christ. It also made me think about the scripture in ( Deuteronomy 28). May God have mercy on us in this nation, and forgive our sin as well!! Pray America! Pray!!!
  • Bmanuel on Lamentations 2:15 - 10 years ago
    As the salt that loses its flavoring quality and as fruit trees that bore no fruit in their season, so Jerusalem had become both desolate and abandoned by the living God she should have remained faithful to. She had "forsaken her own mercy" and her Mercy had forsaken her. Her beauty had faded into ugliness.
  • Tawanna on Lamentations 2 - 11 years ago
    You know I really like and enjoy how Jesus and God have held us like the young. They have taken care of us all so well that we all are stronger enough to make sure we can stand against the ennemy!
  • Judy on Lamentations 2 - 11 years ago
    @Donna, I have a Scoffied Study Bible.....and here is an outline of the 5 chapters of Lamentations..hope this will help you get a better understanding..
    1. The Desolation of Jerusalem.. Chapter 1:1-12
    2. The Day of the Lord's anger... Chapter 2:1-22
    3. Jeremiah's Sharing of His Nation's Affliction Chapter 3:1-66
    A. His Distress verses 1-21
    B. Recounting of God's Faithfulness verses 22 thru 39
    C. A Call to Self-Judgment and Confession verses 40 thru 51
    D. Jeremiah's Prison Experience verses 52-66

    4. The Horrors of the Siege of Jerusalem verses 1-22


    5. A Plaintive Prayer to the Lord. verses 1-22

    The Theme of Lamentations: "The Mourning of Jerusalem" The Author: Jeremiah

    The deeper significance of Lamentations lies in the fact the Jeremiah's intense burden of sympathy for Jerusalem discloses the love and the sorrow of the Lord for the very people whom He is chastening, as burden similar to that which the Lord Jesus Christ expressed in His lament over Jerusalem ( Matt 23:37-39)
  • Doris Early on Lamentations 2 - 11 years ago
    God is saying throught Jer. that he is weeping over the situtation that he is seeing the world in , as is the situation today. The children are dying even the young and old are dying spiritually and physically.
  • Donna on Lamentations 2:19 - 12 years ago
    what exactly is God saying in this scripture?
