Lamentations 3:59

O LORD, you have seen my wrong: judge you my cause.
Read Chapter 3

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Judge what they have judged unjustly. (Worthington)

Thomas Aquinas

AD 1274
Here the judge and his justice is commended: "Thou hast taken up my cause, O Lord, thou hast redeemed my life." That is, during past times. As concurs Psalm 43 (42):l: "Vindicate me, O God, and defend my cause against an ungodly people." Then Verse 59 continues: "Thou hast seen the wrong done to me, O Lord; judge thou my cause." The benevolence of the divine judge is here accounted for.

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