    Lamentations 5:3

    We are orphans and fatherless, our mothers are as widows.

    Mark Chapter 12

    41 And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.

    42 And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.

    43 And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:

    44 For all they did cast in of their ABUNDANCE, but she of her WANT did cast in all that she had, even all her living.

    Hi Brother S Spenser,

    Sorry, I couldn't answer your previous post/response - as the previous thread regarding this topic of discussion was closed.

    I do agree with you, and also Jesse, I believe the scripture below relates to the 2nd coming of Christ Jesus.The scripture you attached also clarifies it in my understanding even more.

    Luke 17:34

    "I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left."

    Luke 17:35

    "Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left."

    As you may know over the years, some have alluded to possible homosexual evidence to this scripture above. GiGi weighed in previously, stating that it was not uncommon for people to share beds, as they were a short commodity during the time period. This makes sense.

    To expand, I was curious about this scripture in Luke, and got sidetracked a bit, and in I my research, I found scripture in the OT specifically regarding the usage of the word "grind" or "grinding" relating to sex. The word seemed to be a slang word see related scripture.

    Job 31:10

    Judges 16:21

    Lamentations 5:13

    In researching this further, I do believe the the word grinding was a valid slang word for sex during those days. I'm still not sure if Luke was really referring to this in his scripture. I also compared it to the alternate scripture in Matthew, where Matthew states" grinding at the mill" whereas Luke did not add the "mill" in his composition.

    Matthew 24:41

    "Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left."

    I'm leaning toward - there may be no sexual undercurrent in this scripture as some people may think.

    God Bless

    what is lamentations 5 teaching us?
  • DIESEL on Hosea 5
  • Xavier johnson on Lamentations 5:10
    I think that Lamentations 5:10 is a clear indication that the REAL children of Israel are black people, that is why whites have intentionally changed the verse to read "hot as an oven" to further cover up the truth.
