Lamentaions : A Mentor Commentary
Full Product Description
The Book of Lamentations is divided into five chapters. Each chapter represents a separate poem. In the original Hebrew, the verses are acrostic, which each verse starting with a succeeding letter of the Hebrew alphabet. What can we learn from this book?
The Babylonians were Godís tool for bringing judgment on Jerusalem (1:12-15; 2:1-8; 4:11).
Sin and rebellion were the causes of Godís wrath being poured out (1:8-9; 4:13; 5:16)
That Lamenting is appropriate in a time of distress, but it should quickly give way to contrition and repentance (3:40-42; 5:21-22).
Even in terrible judgment, God is a God of hope (3:24-25), love (3:22), faithfulness (3:23), and deliverance (3:26). It is only because of the Lordís mercy that we are allowed to survive to receive the gospel (3:22).
A popular view is that Lamentations is a dreary book with nothing much to say to todayís upbeat society. The reality is that it could not be more relevant. If you scratch beneath todayís upbeat atheist you will discover a disillusioned hedonist wondering if the frantic hurtle down the waste-pipe of life has been worth it!
