Lamentations 1.7 ~ They Still Do

Jerusalem remembered in the days of her affliction,
David said, 
"It is good for me,"
And of her miseries,
"That I have been afflicted."
All her pleasant things,
"That I might learn thy statutes."
That she had in the days of old,
When the Judges led Israel.
When her people fell into the hand of the enemy,
Moab, Edom and Philistia,
And none did help her;
Isaiah said, 
"In quietness and confidence shall be your strength."
The adversaries saw her,
What greed and vanity abounded,
And did mock at her Sabbaths.
They still do.
