It is hard to know what to say about theses verses of this chapter.  Instead of saying much about the book of Lamentations I would like to turn back my attention to Jeremiah's prophesy.  He is known by some  (my self included) as the weeping prophet.  If there was ever a man who tried very hard to get the people to turn back to God it was Jeremiah.  The chapter before me is about the wrath of God upon the people especially Judah.  Here Jeremiah calls her the daughter of Zion in at least two places. Zion is a kind of a pet spiritual name for Jerusalem. Now I want to finish this by comparing this with the USA.  What a wonderful beginning our country had but look where we are now.  Even prayer in schools as a public prayer is now almost illegal.  There is plenty of room for lamenting (mourning) over the condition of my beloved country.  Other countries seem to be no better off.  Jesus said in Matthew 5:4, "Blessed are those who mourn." We had better mourn.
