For thus says the LORD,
Enter not into the house of mourning, neither go to lament nor bemoan them: for I have taken away my peace from this people,
says the LORD,
even lovingkindness and mercies.
Read Chapter 16

Feasting: usual at burials for all relations. (Calmet)
This custom reduced many to poverty. (Josephus, Jewish Wars ii. 1.)
Sed cænam funerishæres Negliget iratus quod rem curtaverit. (Pers. vi.)
Mourn, if thou shouldst meet a funeral, Luke vii. 32.
