Interesting-Facts-About-Lamentations

The book of Lamentations is a collection of sorrowful poems grieving the fall of Jerusalem. Jeremiah, who was also known as the “weeping prophet,” wrote this book soon after the raid of Jerusalem by Babylon in 586 B.C., recounting his own personal experiences and witnessing of the destruction.

Through this book, Jeremiah sadly reflects the destruction of a city and teaches God’s people that those who disrespect Him will result in enormous suffering. Here, Jeremiah expresses his profound sorrow as well as compassion and empathy for God’s nation as it is left in ruins by the destruction of Babylon.
