Discussion for Lamentations 5:10

  • Xavier 's comment is ill informed since the Hebrew word for black doesn 't appear in this verse "lamar " means to yearn or kindl The most likely word in Hebrew to describe a person with "black " skin would be "shachor ". Regardless Heaven will be populated by people of "every tribe and tongue and people " with God it 's not about so called "race ". Also this verse uses "lamar " as a metaphor for the effects of severe starvation.
  • 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.
