My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

Lamentations 5


Don't forget us God. We're like orphans. Water ain't free. We beg Assyria and Egypt for bread. We are bearing our father's sins. We are dying from hunger. Our women are raped and our leaders are hung. Our majesty is gone. Don't forget us, but restore us, unless your anger cannot cease.

Key verse:
21. Restore us to yourself, O Lord, that we may return;
renew our days as of old

My thoughts:
I wonder how often these passages got recalled during the holocaust. When I read these passages of hunger my mind fills with those images of the starving Jews in concentration camps.
