Fri 100205 pm Lam 3-5;

Lamentations 3
Love this chapter.
3.14  laughingstock...
3.15  bitterness...
3.16  teeth grind...
3.17 forgotten what happiness is...
I guess Jeremiah had "those days" too.
3.18  my hope from the Lord [is perished]...  This is a very interesting statement coming from a godly man of the stature of Jeremiah.  
Lamentations 4
4.9  Happier were the victims of the sword...
4.10  compassionate women...  What a heart breaking scene!
Lamentations 5
5.1  Look, and see our disgrace...  This is almost a sinners prayer if you understand "see" in a responsive sense.  O, God give me the sense to see my own disgrace.  May it remind me of Your forgiveness and the new life you have given me.
5.19  But you, O Lord, reign forever...  An awesome confession after the severe judgement they had been, were going through.
Matthew 27
27.3  changed his mind... too late.
27.6  it is not lawful...since it is blood money...  What!  Blood money then a pious concern about whether it is good enough to put in the treasury--what's with that!?
27.23  What evil has He done? But they cried the louder...  I had to smile at the response.  When you don't have a reasoned response, just yell louder.
27.42  The irony here is that if He had come down there wouldn't have been much to believe.
27.52  This must have blown some people's minds.
