Lamentations 3:55 - 4:22
John W. Ritenbaugh
Given 27-Jun-89; Sermon #BS-LA07; 64 minutes

Description: (hide)

John Ritenbaugh, focusing upon Lamentations 3 and 4, which show the stark contrast of a once proud people (secure in their wealth, technology, and cleverness) suffering bitter persecution and humiliation at the hands of a people considered by them to be their moral inferiors. In the midst of this suffering, in which the ravages of famine have brought about a degradation of compassion and moral sensibility in Israel, the narrator (presumably Jeremiah) stresses that vindication and ultimate restoration will come only from God.
