Her gates are sunk into the ground;
If the foundations be destroyed,
What shall the righteous do?
He hath destroyed and broken her bars:
The glory of the cities of all the earth
Falls now into ruin.
Her king and her princes are among the Gentiles:
The Leadership is spend and carried off,
Their iniquities filled up his measure.
The law is no more;
Her prophets also find no vision from the Lord.
Hope is stripped away.

The historical feeling of facing brutal truth with no alternative is wonderfully captured here!
Yes. I love the way Lamentations comes right at grief and loss with no apologies. Thanks for reading!
