Jeremiah’s Lamentations

“Like the God he serves, Jeremiah is grieved at the loss of Jerusalem and the scattering of God’s people. 

Although its authorship is not specifically indicated, it seems most likely that Jeremiah is the author of a writing known simply as Lamentations.  The poem expresses the many mixed feelings which this aging and weary man of God must have.  So poignant is this beautiful lament that even to this day it is read by these Hebrews’ descendants each year on the anniversary of the temple’s destruction.”
