Lamentations is a poem expressing personal and national grief for the ravages that disobedience brings. The title of this book is the short Hebrew word, “eka,” or “how.” It indicates a loud cry. Jeremiah is appealing to a nation under judgment to help them to examine how they came to be under judgment, the results of their disobedience, and how they were to move forward. Lamentations answers all three of these questions.
