Lamentations

Additional Links

I only just notice in a cursory way, the sweet Book of Jeremiah which bears this name. The Jews called it Echa, or Kinnoth, which is Lamentations. It is the mournful prophet's elegy over the calamities of the beloved Jerusalem. And in after-ages how tenderly the Lord Jesus wept over the same city, (Matthew 23:37-39) But besides this, there is much of Christ discoverable in it, indeed, though in the first face of the book it refers to history, yet the chief beauty of it is as prophetical of Christ and his church.
