Lamentations 1:8 Jerusalem hath grievously sinned; therefore she is removed: All that honoured her despise her, because they have seen her nakedness: Yea, she sigheth, and turneth backward.Jerusalem knows what God wants and chooses not to obey. She has now been removed, disciplined, and has suffered the consequences of her sin and rebellion. All that she can do is suffer. She is hurting and turning her face away in shame. If we know what is right and what God wants and simply turn to our sin we can expect to suffer the consequences of our sin. It will cause us to sigh and turn in shame also. Sin is never worth it. Turn from sin to obey God.
