Lamentations 5:12 Parallel
CommentaryLamentations 5:12 Parallel Commentaries
"Stand up in the presence of the elderly, and show respect for the aged. Fear your God. I am the LORD.
For I was angry with my chosen people and punished them by letting them fall into your hands. But you, Babylon, showed them no mercy. You oppressed even the elderly.
The LORD himself has scattered them, and he no longer helps them. People show no respect for the priests and no longer honor the leaders.
