Lamentations 5:15

Lamentations 5:15

The joy of our heart is ceased
ward joy was gone, as well as the external signs of it: it "sabbatized" F25, as it may be rendered; alluding perhaps to the cordial joy expressed formerly on their sabbaths and other festivals, now not observed; at least, not with that joy, inward and outward, they formerly were: our dance is turned into mourning;
which also was used at their solemn feasts, as well as at their common diversions, ( Judges 21:21 ) ; but now no more of that; but, instead of it, mourning at the calamities they were oppressed with; and at the remembrance of mercies and privileges, civil and religious, they were deprived of.
