Lamentations 3:1-66

As I read today’s passage I had a visual image of Jerusalem crying out the words written by Jeremiah She is the one who has seen it all, the rise of David and the built up city and fortifications of Solomon. It was within her walls that the gold laden Temple was constructed and slowly dismantled as each successive king failed to protect her by not fully walking uprightly before God or else going head long into sin. Jerusalem, the City of Zion, was picked out by God to be the city He dwelt in and built by man to try to reflect His glory, then abandoned by each successive generation.

Yet despite our failure to be faithful to God, God remains faithful to His people.

Grace and peace,
Ramona

I read somewhere that Jeremiah wrote Lamentations as acrostics.
Each chapter begins with successive letters of the 22 Hebrew alphabet
Twenty two verses each chapter but in chapter three there are three verses with each letter thus 66 verses.
This trivia only emphasis the love God still has for Israel as it experiencing His chastening hand.
Thanks Mike for leading our One year Bible
