Lamentations 3

  • 3:1-27 – The author laments over the pain and sorrow of the exile and destruction of the Israelites and their land. But then the author offers hope. God’s faithfulness does renew continually.
  • 3:37-42 – The author recognizes that his people have sinned and are at fault and ultimately need to accept what they’re given.
  • 3:43-54 – The Israelites were shamed because it seemed that their God couldn’t take care of them or had forgotten them. They were both overtaken and humiliated.
  • 3:55-66 – The author clearly still has hope that God will restore his people.
