Lamentations

Details, Please (Part 2)

The sight of the disasters brought on the southern Jewish nation brings tears to Jeremiah’s eyes (“Mine eyes runneth down with water,” 1:16) and provides his nickname, “the weeping prophet.”  Lamentations ends with a plaintive cry: “Thou hast utterly rejected us; thou art very wroth against us” (5:22).
