1 Como está sentada solitária a cidade que era tão populosa! tornou-se como viúva a que era grande entre as nações! A que era princesa entre as províncias tornou-se avassalada!

2 Chora amargamente de noite, e as lágrimas lhe correm pelas faces; não tem quem a console entre todos os seus amantes; todos os seus amigos se houveram aleivosamente com ela; tornaram-se seus inimigos.

3 Judá foi para o cativeiro para sofrer aflição e dura servidão; ela habita entre as nações, não acha descanso; todos os seus perseguidores a alcançaram nas suas angústias.

4 Os caminhos de Sião pranteiam, porque não há quem venha à assembléia solene; todas as suas portas estão desoladas; os seus sacerdotes suspiram; as suas virgens estão tristes, e ela mesma sofre amargamente.

5 Os seus adversários a dominam, os seus inimigos prosperam; porque o Senhor a afligiu por causa da multidão das suas transgressões; os seus filhinhos marcharam para o cativeiro adiante do adversário.

6 E da filha de Sião já se foi todo o seu esplendor; os seus príncipes ficaram sendo como cervos que não acham pasto e caminham sem força adiante do perseguidor.

7 Lembra-se Jerusalém, nos dias da sua aflição e dos seus exílios, de todas as suas preciosas coisas, que tivera desde os tempos antigos; quando caía o seu povo na mão do adversário, e não havia quem a socorresse, os adversários a viram, e zombaram da sua ruína.

8 Jerusalém gravemente pecou, por isso se fez imunda; todos os que a honravam a desprezam, porque lhe viram a nudez; ela também suspira e se volta para trás.

9 A sua imundícia estava nas suas fraldas; não se lembrava do seu fim; por isso foi espantosamente abatida; não há quem a console; , Senhor, a minha aflição; pois o inimigo se tem engrandecido.

10 Estendeu o adversário a sua mão a todas as coisas preciosas dela; pois ela viu entrar no seu santuário as nações, acerca das quais ordenaste que não entrassem na tua congregação.

11 Todo o seu povo anda gemendo, buscando o pão; deram as suas coisas mais preciosas a troco de mantimento para refazerem as suas forças. , Senhor, e contempla, pois me tornei desprezível.

12 Não vos comove isto a todos vós que passais pelo caminho? Atendei e vede se há dor igual a minha dor, que veio sobre mim, com que o Senhor me afligiu, no dia do furor da sua ira.

13 Desde o alto enviou fogo que entra nos meus ossos, o qual se assenhoreou deles; estendeu uma rede aos meus pés, fez-me voltar para trás, tornou-me desolada e desfalecida o dia todo.

14 O jugo das minhas transgressões foi atado; pela sua mão elas foram entretecidas e postas sobre o meu pescoço; ele abateu a minha força; entregou-me o Senhor nas mãos daqueles a quem eu não posso resistir.

15 O Senhor desprezou todos os meus valentes no meio de mim; convocou contra mim uma assembléia para esmagar os meus mancebos; o Senhor pisou como num lagar a virgem filha de Judá.

16 Por estas coisas vou chorando; os meus olhos, os meus olhos se desfazem em águas; porque está longe de mim um consolador que pudesse renovar o meu ânimo; os meus filhos estão desolados, porque prevaleceu o inimigo.

17 Estende Sião as suas mãos, não há quem a console; ordenou o Senhor acerca de Jacó que fossem inimigos os que estão em redor dele; Jerusalém se tornou entre eles uma coisa imunda.

18 Justo é o Senhor, pois me rebelei contra os seus mandamentos; ouvi, rogo-vos, todos os povos, e vede a minha dor; para o cativeiro foram-se as minhas virgens e os meus mancebos.

19 Chamei os meus amantes, mas eles me enganaram; os meus sacerdotes e os meus anciãos expiraram na cidade, enquanto buscavam para si mantimento, para refazerem as suas forças.

20 Olha, Senhor, porque estou angustiada; turbadas estão as minhas entranhas; o meu coração está transtornado dentro de mim; porque gravemente me rebelei. Na rua me desfilha a espada, em casa é como a morte.

21 Ouviram como estou gemendo; mas não há quem me console; todos os meus inimigos souberam do meu mal; alegram-se de que tu o determinaste; mas, em trazendo tu o dia que anunciaste, eles se tornarão semelhantes a mim.

22 Venha toda a sua maldade para a tua presença, e faze-lhes como me fizeste a mim por causa de todas as minhas transgressões; pois muitos são os meus gemidos, e desfalecido está o meu coração.

Commentary

 

Chaldea      

By New Christian Bible Study Staff

← Previous   Next →

Chaldea was a land lying along the Euphrates river near its mouth, south of Babylon, part of what is now southern Iraq.

It was a land of the Lord's second great church, the Ancient Church, which at its height had a wealth of knoweldge through its own sacred scriptures and the correspondences of nature. But as this church declined Chaldea came to represent those who use truths for evil purposes and thus profane and falsify them.

Abram was born in Chaldea because of the greatness it had represented, but had to leave because of wha it had become.
