Lamentations 3:37-39

God Speaks Both Good Things and Hard Things into Being

37-39Who do you think "spoke and it happened"?

It's the Master who gives such orders.

Doesn't the High God speak everything,

good things and hard things alike, into being?

And why would anyone gifted with life

complain when punished for sin?

40-42Let's take a good look at the way we're living

and reorder our lives under God.

Let's lift our hearts and hands at one and the same time,

praying to God in heaven:

"We've been contrary and willful,

and you haven't forgiven.
