(Heb. qinah), an elegy or dirge. The first example of this form of poetry is the lament of David over Saul and Jonathan (2 Samuel 1:17-27 ). It was a frequent accompaniment of mourning (Amos 8:10 ). In 2 Samuel 3:33,34 is recorded David's lament over Abner. Prophecy sometimes took the form of a lament when it predicted calamity (Ezekiel 27:2,32 ; 28:12 ; 32:2,16 ).
