Lamentations 3:39
Context
God's Justice

37Who is he that said, and it comes to pass, when the Lord commands it not? 38Out of the mouth of the most High proceeds not evil and good? 39Why does a living man complain, a man for the punishment of his sins? 40Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the LORD. 41Let us lift up our heart with our hands to God in the heavens. 42We have transgressed and have rebelled: you have not pardoned. 43You have covered with anger, and persecuted us: you have slain, you have not pitied. 44You have covered yourself with a cloud, that our prayer should not pass through. 45You have made us as the offscouring and refuse in the middle of the people. 46All our enemies have opened their mouths against us. 47Fear and a snare is come on us, desolation and destruction. 48My eye runs down with rivers of water for the destruction of the daughter of my people. 49My eye trickles down, and ceases not, without any intermission. 50Till the LORD look down, and behold from heaven. 51My eye affects my heart because of all the daughters of my city. 52My enemies chased me sore, like a bird, without cause. 53They have cut off my life in the dungeon, and cast a stone on me. 54Waters flowed over my head; then I said, I am cut off.
