Lamentations 5:20-22 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

20 [a]Why have you utterly forgotten us,
    forsaken us for so long?
21 Bring us back to you, Lord, that we may return:
    renew our days as of old.
22 For now you have indeed rejected us
    and utterly turned your wrath against us.


  1. 5:20–22 Unlike most of the laments found in the Book of Psalms, the Book of Lamentations never moves from lament to thanksgiving. It ends with this question still unanswered by God: “Why have you utterly forgotten us?”
