Lamentations - 1

welcome us back

Lamentations 4:21-22 (JDV)

Lamentations 4:21 So rejoice and be glad, Daughter Edom, you resident of the land of Uz! Yet the cup will pass to you as well; you will get drunk and expose yourself.
Lamentations 4:22 Daughter Zion, your punishment will be finished; he will not lengthen your exile. But he will punish your iniquity, Daughter Edom, and will expose your sins.

welcome us back

Two nations are described as delinquent daughters. Our heavenly father will punish both for their sins, exposing the world to their shame. But there will be a difference. The exile which Zion experiences will not be lengthened, which means the Father will welcome the repentant Zion back.

Lord, welcome us back. We feel the shame of our exile from you. We long for your approving presence again.
