The Lord is in the right,
for I have rebelled against his word;
but hear, all you peoples,
and see my suffering - 1:18.

But this I call to mind,
and therefore I have hope:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness. - 3:21-23

Jeremiah describes the distress of Jerusalem after its destruction.
He admits her sin and that they deserve this, but there is none to comfort and their enemies gloat.
He knows God won't reject them forever, but time seems to stand still.
Yet, God's faithfulness is great, and renewed every morning.
Restore us, Lord!

How this is about Jesus/Application
Jesus wept over the wages of our sin come upon us - John 11:35; Luke 19:41.
But these two times Jesus wept are very different - one sympathetic for believers leading to resurrection, and the other mourning for those who would be destroyed.
