Skipping straight to chapter 5 today. I think the 4 is sad.
Chapter 5: has the same structure as chapter 3. I read tons of research on the structures of these poems- 3 and 5 follow the Hebrew Alphabet and 1,2,4 are acrostic however I was looking for the lessons not necessarily the structure, but feel free to dig into it on your own…pretty neat stuff.
I heard my voice instead of Jeremiah as he “reminded God”-as if He needs reminding! But our prayers and conversations with God are supposed to be transparent. In the end, I read:
19 You, Lord, reign forever;
your throne endures from generation to generation.
20 Why do you always forget us?
Why do you forsake us so long?
21 Restore us to yourself, Lord, that we may return;
renew our days as of old
22 unless you have utterly rejected us
and are angry with us beyond measure.
