In this chapter are reckoned up the various calamities and distresses
of the Jews in Babylon, which the Lord is desired to remember and
consider, \\#La 5:1-16\\; their great concern for the desolation of the
temple in particular is expressed, \\#La 5:17,18\\; and the chapter is
concluded with a prayer that God would show favour to them, and turn
them to him, and renew their prosperity as of old, though he had
rejected them, and been wroth with them, \\#La 5:19-22\\.
