Lament Poems in the Bible

Overview of lament poetry in the Bible from The Bible Project’s1 video on Lamentations:

A form of protest, a way to process emotion, and a place to voice confusion — all to restore a sacred dignity to human suffering.

Excellent summary of biblical songs of lament, and an even better practice for the hurting and distressed.


  1. I’ve been watching the corresponding Bible Project video before beginning a new book of the Bible as I go through the Lindsay Bible Reading Plan. They are some of the best introductions that I’ve ever encountered.
