General Information

The Book of Lamentations in the Old Testament of the Bible is actually five poems that lament the destruction of Jerusalem in 586 BC. Often called "The Lamentations of Jeremiah," it is usually placed after the Book of Jeremiah, despite its uncertain authorship. The poet vividly describes the devastation endured by Jerusalem. Although this recitation of laments faced the harsh realities of the present, the prayer - poems also stirred up continuing hope in Yahweh's promises for the future.
