His Compassions Fail Not - Lamentations 3

Book of Lamentations

Lamentations 3:1 I am the man that hath seen affliction by the rod  of his wrath. 

Lamentations 3:2 He hath led me, and brought me into  darkness, but not into light. 
Lamentations 3:3 Surely against me is he  turned; he turneth his hand against me all the day. 

Lamentations 3:4  My flesh and my skin hath he made old; he hath broken my  bones. 

Lamentations 3:5 He hath builded against me, and compassed  me with gall and travail. 

Lamentations 3:6 He hath set me in dark  places, as they that be dead of old. 

Lamentations 3:7 He hath hedged  me about, that I cannot get out: he hath made my chain  heavy. 

Lamentations 3:8 Also when I cry and shout, he shutteth out my  prayer. 

Lamentations 3:9 He hath inclosed my ways with hewn stone,  he hath made my paths crooked. 

Lamentations 3:10 He was unto me  as a bear lying in wait, and as a lion in secret places.  

Lamentations 3:11 He hath turned aside my ways, and pulled me in  pieces: he hath made me desolate. 

Lamentations 3:12 He hath bent his  bow, and set me as a mark for the arrow. 

Lamentations 3:13 He hath  caused the arrows of his quiver to enter into my reins.  

Lamentations 3:14 I was a derision to all my people; and their song all  the day. 

Lamentations 3:15 He hath filled me with bitterness, he hath  made me drunken with wormwood. 

Lamentations 3:16 He hath also  broken my teeth with gravel stones, he hath covered me  with ashes. 

Lamentations 3:17 And thou hast removed my soul far off  from peace: I forgat prosperity. 

Lamentations 3:18 And I said, My  strength and my hope is perished from the LORD: 

Lamentations 3:19  Remembering mine affliction and my misery, the  wormwood and the gall. 

Lamentations 3:20 My soul hath them still in  remembrance, and is humbled in me. 

Lamentations 3:21 This I recall to  my mind, therefore have I hope.  

Lamentations 3:22 It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not  consumed, because his compassions fail not. 

Lamentations 3:23 They  are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. 

Lamentations 3:24  The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I  hope in him. 

Lamentations 3:25 The LORD is good unto them that  wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. 

Lamentations 3:26 It is  good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the  salvation of the LORD. 

Lamentations 3:27 It is good for a man that he  bear the yoke in his youth. 

Lamentations 3:28 He sitteth alone and  keepeth silence, because he hath borne it upon him. 

Lamentations 3:29  He putteth his mouth in the dust; if so be there may be hope.   

Lamentations 3:30 He giveth his cheek to him that smiteth him: he is  filled full with reproach. 

Lamentations 3:31 For the Lord will not cast  off for ever: 

Lamentations 3:32 But though he cause grief, yet will he  have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies.  

Lamentations 3:33 For he doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the  children of men. 

Lamentations 3:34 To crush under his feet all the  prisoners of the earth, 

Lamentations 3:35 To turn aside the right of a  man before the face of the most High, 

Lamentations 3:36 To subvert a  man in his cause, the Lord approveth not. 

Lamentations 3:37 Who is  he that saith, and it cometh to pass, when the Lord  commandeth it not? 

Lamentations 3:38 Out of the mouth of the most  High proceedeth not evil and good? 

Lamentations 3:39 Wherefore doth  a living man complain, a man for the punishment of his  sins? 

Lamentations 3:40 Let us search and try our ways, and turn again  to the LORD. 

Lamentations 3:41 Let us lift up our heart with our  hands unto God in the heavens. 

Lamentations 3:42 We have  transgressed and have rebelled: thou hast not pardoned.  

Lamentations 3:43 Thou hast covered with anger, and persecuted us:  thou hast slain, thou hast not pitied. 

Lamentations 3:44 Thou hast  covered thyself with a cloud, that our prayer should not  pass through. 

Lamentations 3:45 Thou hast made us as the offscouring  and refuse in the midst of the people. 

Lamentations 3:46 All our  enemies have opened their mouths against us. 

Lamentations 3:47 Fear  and a snare is come upon us, desolation and destruction.  

Lamentations 3:48 Mine eye runneth down with rivers of water for the  destruction of the daughter of my people. 

Lamentations 3:49 Mine eye  trickleth down, and ceaseth not, without any intermission,  

Lamentations 3:50 Till the LORD look down, and behold from heaven.  

Lamentations 3:51 Mine eye affecteth mine heart because of all the  daughters of my city. 

Lamentations 3:52 Mine enemies chased me sore,  like a bird, without cause. 

Lamentations 3:53 They have cut off my life  in the dungeon, and cast a stone upon me. 

Lamentations 3:54 Waters  flowed over mine head; then I said, I am cut off. 

Lamentations 3:55 I  called upon thy name, O LORD, out of the low dungeon.  

Lamentations 3:56 Thou hast heard my voice: hide not thine ear at my  breathing, at my cry. 

Lamentations 3:57 Thou drewest near in the day  that I called upon thee: thou saidst, Fear not. 

Lamentations 3:58 O  Lord, thou hast pleaded the causes of my soul; thou hast  redeemed my life. 

Lamentations 3:59 O LORD, thou hast seen my  wrong: judge thou my cause. 

Lamentations 3:60 Thou hast seen all their  vengeance and all their imaginations against me. 

Lamentations 3:61  Thou hast heard their reproach, O LORD, and all their  imaginations against me; 

Lamentations 3:62 The lips of those that rose  up against me, and their device against me all the day.  

Lamentations 3:63 Behold their sitting down, and their rising up; I am  their musick.  

Lamentations 3:64 Render unto them a recompence, O LORD,  according to the work of their hands. 

Lamentations 3:65 Give them  sorrow of heart, thy curse unto them. 

Lamentations 3:66 Persecute and  destroy them in anger from under the heavens of the LORD.  KJV
