- Lamentations

by C.I. Scofield

Book Introduction - Lamentations

Lamentations 1:1

The touching significance of this book lies in the fact that it is the disclosure of the love and sorrow of Jehovah for the very people who He is chastening--a sorrow wrought by the Spirit in the heart of Jeremiah (Jeremiah 13:17; Matthew 23:36; Matthew 23:38; Romans 9:1-5).

The chapters indicate the analysis, viz., five lamentations.
