In the book of Jeremiah. Jeremiah was appointed to be a prophet for the lord even before he was formed in his mother’s womb. The Lord used Jeremiah to warn Israel about there adulterous ways. Jeremiah pleaded with Israel to repent and turn back to the Lord ( Israel’s groom) because Israel is the Lord’s bride. after warning Israel, Israel wound not repent. Jeremiah warned Israel again that God was going to destroy them by sending an army the ( Babylonians ) Israel continued not to listen to Jeremiah so Israel became exile.
Lamentations… Jeremiah mourned for his city Israel haven been taken captive. there transgressions brought it to themselves. the people mourned they question if they could ever be saved.
