Lamentations 2:1 ” How the Lord has covered the daughter of Zion with the cloud of His anger.”

The Book of Lamentations was written by Jeremiah as he watched the destruction of Jerusalem. All five Chapters in Lamentations are called Poems of Mourning…each one giving an eye witness account of the horror taking place. These Poems of Mourning were a way that an overwhelmed Jeremiah could grieve what was happening to his beloved city, express sorrow and confess the people’s great sinfulness, and bemoan the fact that it was their own wickedness that had brought this judgment upon them. But Jeremiah also rightly pointed out that God is just in all He does, that nothing happens without God first ordaining it, and that sin will not go unpunished. (Jeremiah 3:37-39)
