Lamentations 1:22

Lamentations 1:22

Let all their wickedness come before thee
The Targum adds,

``in the day of the great judgment;''
but it seems to refer to present time, at least to the time fixed by the Lord for their ruin; and which the church imprecates, not from a spirit of revenge, but from a holy zeal for the glory of God; desiring that the wickedness of her enemies might be remembered by the Lord, so as to punish them in righteous judgment for the same: and do unto them as thou hast done unto me for all my transgressions;
she owns that what was done to her was for her sins, and therefore could not charge God with injustice; only she desires the same might be done to her enemies, who were equally guilty: some render it, "glean them" F17; or rather, "gather them as a vintage"; or as grapes are gathered: "as thou hast gathered me"; as thou hast took me, and cast me into the winepress of thy wrath, and there hast trodden and squeezed me; see ( Lamentations 1:15 ) ; so do unto them: for my sighs [are] many, and my heart [is] faint;
her sighs were many because of her afflictions, and her heart faint because of her sighing.
