Jeremiah 48:1 – Lamentations 1:22

This section of scripture is one of sadness and sorrow.  By the end of the Book of Jeremiah the city of Jerusalem falls to Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, and over 4000 people are carried off into exile.  The book of Lamentations is also said to be written by the prophet Jeremiah.  It is said that after the fall of Jerusalem he took refuge in a cavern outside the Damascus gate and he wrote this book of lament over all that had happened.  “How deserted lies the city, once so full of people!  How like a widow is she, who once was great among the nations! She who was queen among the provinces has now become a slave.”  (Lamentations 1:1)
