Lamentations 3:19
Context
Jeremiah's Hope

19Remembering my affliction and my misery, the wormwood and the gall. 20My soul has them still in remembrance, and is humbled in me. 21This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. 22It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 23They are new every morning: great is your faithfulness. 24The LORD is my portion, said my soul; therefore will I hope in him. 25The LORD is good to them that wait for him, to the soul that seeks him. 26It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. 27It is good for a man that he bear the yoke of his youth. 28He sits alone and keeps silence, because he has borne it on him. 29He puts his mouth in the dust; if so be there may be hope. 30He gives his cheek to him that smites him: he is filled full with reproach. 31For the LORD will not cast off for ever: 32But though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies. 33For he does not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men. 34To crush under his feet all the prisoners of the earth. 35To turn aside the right of a man before the face of the most High, 36To subvert a man in his cause, the LORD approves not.
