Lamentations - 1

look at my pain

Lamentations 1:18-19 (JDV)

Lamentations 1:18 Yahveh is being just, because I have rebelled against his command. Listen, all you people; look at my pain. My young women and young men have gone into captivity.
Lamentations 1:19 I called to my lovers, but they betrayed me. My priests and elders were destroyed in the city while searching for food to keep themselves alive.

look at my pain

The city calls on the people to look at her pain. She knows that she is suffering justly, and wants everyone to know it. As difficult as these times of trouble and heartache are, they can be opportunities to witness to the glory of God. But we have to get over own own pride and self-righteousness.

Lord, your ways are right, even we suffer. You are just.
