Chapter Summaries of Lamentations
1 How lonely sits the city! Judah has gone into exile. O LORD, I am despised. Is any sorrow like mine? There is no one to comfort me.
2 The LORD has not pitied Jacob. He has abandoned his sanctuary. My eyes fail with tears. Young and old lie slaughtered in the streets.
3 He has driven me into darkness. But the steadfast love of the LORD never ceases. Let us return to the LORD! You will repay my enemies.
4 The holy stones lie scattered. The children beg for food. The LORD has poured out his fierce anger. O Zion, your punishment will end.
I summarised all 1,189 chapters of the Bible on Twitter - one tweet per chapter, one chapter per day for over three years.
These are the summaries of the book of Lamentations.
They are written to help you understand and remember what's going on in the chapter, but they're no substitute for reading the Bible for yourself.
All the summaries in a paperback book or on Kindle.
