Lamentations 3:18–32 ()

[18] I cry out, “My splendor is gone! Everything I had hoped for from the LORD is lost!” [19] The thought of my suffering and homelessness is bitter beyond words. [20] I will never forget this awful time, as I grieve over my loss. [21] Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this: [22] The unfailing love of the LORD never ends! By his mercies we have been kept from complete destruction. [23] Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each day. [24] I say to myself, “The LORD is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!” [25] The LORD is wonderfully good to those who wait for him and seek him. [26] So it is good to wait quietly for salvation from the LORD. [27] And it is good for the young to submit to the yoke of his discipline. [28] Let them sit alone in silence beneath the LORD’S demands. [29] Let them lie face down in the dust; then at last there is hope for them. [30] Let them turn the other cheek to those who strike them. Let them accept the insults of their enemies. [31] For the Lord does not abandon anyone forever. [32] Though he brings grief, he also shows compassion according to the greatness of his unfailing love.
