Discussion for Lamentations 5

  • Michael C.
    We should not look at these verses as anything but what they are; A Lamentation. It says in Moses how that after ages and generations of sinning and defiance; if one finally come to himself and repent, and accept the punishment of his sins, and the sins of his ancestors; that God would then accept him: (Lev. 26). We too have to accept God's judgment against our whole history, in the things coming.
