Lamentations: Absurdity

  1. "They have cast up dust upon their heads; they have girded themselves with sackcloth: the virgins of Jerusalem hang down their heads to the ground." 2:10
  2. "All that pass by clap their hands at thee; they hiss and wag their head." 2:15
  3. "All thine enemies have opened their mouth against thee: they hiss and gnash the teeth: they say, We have swallowed her up."
  4. 2:16

  5. God shoots people with his bow and his arrows pierce their kidneys ("reins"). 3:13
  6. "He hath also broken my teeth with gravel stones."
  7. 3:16

  8. "Out of the mouth of the Most High proceedeth not good and evil?" Mostly evil, I'd say -- at least if you believe the Bible. 3:38
