  • Lamentations 2:1-8
    How the Lord has covered the daughter of Zion
    With a cloud in His anger!
    He cast down from heaven to the earth
    The beauty of Israel,
    And did not remember His footstool
    In the day of His anger.
    The Lord has swallowed up and has not pitied
    All the dwelling places of Jacob.
    He has thrown down in His wrath
    The strongholds of the daughter of Judah;
    He has brought them down to the ground;
    He has profaned the kingdom and its princes.
    He has cut off in fierce anger
    Every horn of Israel;
    He has drawn back His right hand
    From before the enemy.
    He has blazed against Jacob like a flaming fire
    Devouring all around.
    Standing like an enemy, He has bent His bow;
    With His right hand, like an adversary,
    He has slain all who were pleasing to His eye;
    On the tent of the daughter of Zion,
    He has poured out His fury like fire.
    The Lord was like an enemy.
    He has swallowed up Israel,
    He has swallowed up all her palaces;
    He has destroyed her strongholds,
    And has increased mourning and lamentation
    In the daughter of Judah.
    He has done violence to His tabernacle,
    As if it werea garden;
    He has destroyed His place of assembly;
    The LORD has caused
    The appointed feasts and Sabbaths to be forgotten in Zion.
    In His burning indignation He has spurned the king and the priest.
    The Lord has spurned His altar,
    He has abandoned His sanctuary;
    He has given up the walls of her palaces
    Into the hand of the enemy.
    They have made a noise in the house of the LORD
    As on the day of a set feast.
    The LORD has purposed to destroy
    The wall of the daughter of Zion.
    He has stretched out a line;
    He has not withdrawn His hand from destroying;
    Therefore He has caused the rampart and wall to lament;
    They languished together.

     
  • Isaiah 45:7
    I form the light and create darkness,
    I make peace and create calamity;
    I, the LORD, do all these things.

     
  • Lamentations 3:22-23
    Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed,
    Because His compassions fail not.
    They are new every morning;
    Great is Your faithfulness.
