Lamentations 3:46 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Let us search - How are we to get the pardon of our sins? The prophet tells us:
1. Let us examine ourselves.
2. "Let us turn again to the Lord."
3. "Let us lift up our heart;" let us make fervent prayer and supplication for mercy.

And therefore the great thing to remember is that God's darknesses are not His goals; …

Meditations for one that is Like to Die.
"And now those young men mock me in song; I have become a byword among them.
They detest me and keep their distance; they do not hesitate to spit in my face.
But I am a worm and not a man, scorned by everyone, despised by the people.
Roaring lions that tear their prey open their mouths wide against me.
All your enemies open their mouths wide against you; they scoff and gnash their teeth and say, "We have swallowed her up. This is the day we have waited for; we have lived to see it."
