God’s Character Is Our Cause For Hope

Lamentations 3:31-39

For the Lord will not
    cast off forever,
but, though he cause grief, he will have compassion
    according to the abundance of his steadfast love;
for he does not afflict from his heart
    or grieve the children of men.

To crush underfoot
    all the prisoners of the earth,
to deny a man justice
    in the presence of the Most High,
to subvert a man in his lawsuit,
    the Lord does not approve.

Who has spoken and it came to pass,
    unless the Lord has commanded it?
Is it not from the mouth of the Most High
    that good and bad come?
Why should a living man complain,
    a man, about the punishment of his sins?
