Lamentations 3:60

 

 

You have seen all their vengeance, All their schemes against me.

Adam Clarke Commentary

Thou hast seen - all their imaginations - Every thing is open to the eye of God. Distressed soul! though thou knowest not what thy enemies meditate against thee; yet he who loves thee does, and will infallibly defeat all their plots, and save thee.

Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible

imaginations — devices (Jeremiah 11:19).

Their vengeance — means their malice. Jeremiah gives his conduct, when plotted against by his foes, as an example how the Jews should bring their wrongs at the hands of the Chaldeans before God.

Calvin's Commentary on the Bible

This mode of speaking was often used by the saints, because God, when it pleased him to look on their miseries, was ever ready to bring them help. Nor were they words without meaning, when the faithful said, O Lord, thou hast seen; for they said this for their own sake, that they might shake off all unbelief. For as soon as any trial assails us, we imagine that God is turned away from us; and thus our flesh tempts us to despair. It is hence necessary that the faithful should in this respect struggle with themselves and feel assured that God has seen them. Though, then, human reason may say, that God does not see, but neglect and disregard his people, yet on the other hand, this doctrine ought to sustain them, it being certain that God does see them. This is the reason why David so often uses this mode of expression.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

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

Ver. 60. Thou hast seen all their vengeance.] See on Lamentations 3:59. The saints fare the better for their enemies’ spite and cruelty; and they may very well plead and present it to God in prayer.
