Baruch 4:12

Let no man rejoice over me, a widow, and forsaken of many, who for the sins of my children am left desolate; because they departed from the law of God.
Read Chapter 4

Olympiodorus of Alexandria

AD 570
He calls her a widow because she was without the divine care, alone and desolate—clearly she who is now alone. Or, furthermore, the only one to have had the divine temple. Or the only one to have been encircled by the Assyrians but not conquered, because in fact “the Lord tried me harshly but did not give me over to death.” But above all it is the synagogue that deserves the name widow, which, having acted arrogantly toward Christ her spouse, has been abandoned. - "Fragments on Baruch 4.12"

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
