Lamentations

The Book of Lamentations in the BibleThe book of Lamentations is a series of five poems or laments, formatted not unlike a funeral dirge.

They are generally attributed to the prophet Jeremiah and focus on the sorry state of Jerusalem, it’s people, and God‘s pending judgment.

Each of the books five chapters corresponds to one of the five poems.
