Item description for Lamentations: Second Revised Edition (The Anchor Yale Bible Commentaries) by Delbert R. Hillers...
The poetry found in the Book of Lamentations is an eloquent expression of one man's, and one nation's, despair. The poet is deep in mourning as a result of the fall of Jerusalem to the Babylonians in the 6th century BCE. He looks to Israel's own sins to explain the catastrophe and wonders if God has abandoned his people.
