Lamentations 2.8 ~ His Purpose

The Lord hath purposed to destroy 
Who can stay his hand?
The wall of the daughter of Zion: 
She that is ancient and founded ends.
He hath stretched out a line, 
He measures out the ruin before it falls
He hath not withdrawn his hand from destroying: 
His purpose and line must be satisfied.
Therefore he made the rampart and the wall to lament; 
Those filled with the echoes of festal shouts,
They languished together.
