Lamentations - 1

bring us back

Lamentations 5:21-22 (JDV)

Lamentations 5:21 Yahveh, bring us back to yourself, so we may return; renew our days as in former times,
Lamentations 5:22 unless you are so intensely angry with us that you have completely rejected us.

bring us back

The Lament ends with a final plea for God to renew his people. When all is said and done, we are totally dependent on God for our restoration and renewal. The only thing we can do is come to him.

That is the gospel. Our repentance does not change us. It is a call on God to regenerate us. It is an admission that we have gotten things so wrong that we need him to intervene. Faith believes that he is willing to do so.

Lord, bring us back to yourself.
