    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:21

    ¶ Sin : Gózate y alégrate, hija de Edom, la que habitas en tierra de Uz, aun hasta ti pasará el cáliz; te embriagarás, y vomitarás.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Lamentations 4:21

    Verse 21.
    Rejoice and be Lad, O daughter of Edom] A strong irony.

    The cup also shall pass through unto thee] Thou who hast triumphed in our disasters shalt shortly have enough of thy own. They had joined themselves to the Chaldeans, (see Psa. cxxxvii. 7,) and therefore they should share in the desolations of Babylon.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 21. Rejoice and be glad, O daughter of Edom , etc.] The land of Idumea, and the inhabitants of it, who did indeed rejoice at the destruction of Jerusalem, (Obidiah 1:12); and here, in an ironic manner, are bid to go on with their mirth, if they could, like the young man in ( Ecclesiastes 11:9), as Aben Ezra observes; for it would not last long, their note would soon be changed: that dwellest in the land of Uz ; not the country of Job, which had its name from Uz the son of Nahor, ( Job 1:1 Genesis 22:21); but a country in Idumea, from whence the whole was so called, and that from Uz the son of Dishan, one of the sons of Seir: or else the sense is, that Edom or Idumea, and the inhabitants of it, dwelt upon the borders of Uz; and so agrees very well with the place of Job’s residence, which was near the land of Edom.

    The Targum, according to R. Elias f134 , is, “rejoice, O wicked Rome;” but, in the king of Spain’s Bible, it is, “rejoice and be glad, O Constantine (that is, Constantinople), the city of wicked Edom, which art built in the land of Armenia;” and Jarchi says that Jeremiah prophesies concerning the destruction of the second temple, which the Romans destroyed; but in other copies, and according to Lyra, his words are, Jeremiah here prophesies concerning the destruction of the Roman empire, because that destroyed the temple; and it is usual with him, and other Rabbins, to interpret Edom of Rome; the cup also shall pass through unto thee ; the cup of God’s wrath and vengeance; which, as it had come to the Jews, and was passing from one nation to another, in its turn would come to these Edomites; (see Jeremiah 25:15,21); thou shall be drunken, and shall make thyself naked ; be overcome by it; as persons with wine, or any strong drink, reel to and fro, and fall; and be utterly destroyed, lie helpless and without strength: “and be made naked” f135 , as it may be rendered; stripped of their riches and wealth; or they should strip themselves of their clothes, and behave indecently, and expose those parts which ought to be covered, as drunken persons the sense is, they should be exposed, or expose themselves, to shame and contempt.

    The Septuagint version is, “and thou shalt be drunken, and pour out” f136 ; that is, vomit, as drunken men do; and so Jarchi and Abendana interpret the word of vomiting; and the Targum is, “and thou shalt be emptied.”


    Matthew Henry Commentary
    The deplorable
    state of the nation is contrasted with its ancien prosperity.

    Lam. 4:1-12 What a change is here! Sin tarnishes the beauty of the mos exalted powers and the most excellent gifts; but that gold, tried in the fire, which Christ bestows, never will be taken from us; it outward appearance may be dimmed, but its real value can never be changed. The horrors of the siege and destruction of Jerusalem ar again described. Beholding the sad consequences of sin in the church of old, let us seriously consider to what the same causes may justly brin down the church now. But, Lord, though we have gone from thee in rebellion, yet turn to us, and turn our hearts to thee, that we ma fear thy name. Come to us, bless us with awakening, converting renewing, confirming grace.

    Lam. 4:13-20 Nothing ripens a people more for ruin, nor fills the measure faster, than the sins of priests and prophets. The king himsel cannot escape, for Divine vengeance pursues him. Our anointed Kin alone is the life of our souls; we may safely live under his shadow and rejoice in Him in the midst of our enemies, for He is the true God and eternal life.

    Lam. 4:21,22 Here it is foretold that an end should be put to Zion' troubles. Not the fulness of punishment deserved, but of what God ha determined to inflict. An end shall be put to Edom's triumphs. All the troubles of the church and of the believer will soon be accomplished And the doom of their enemies approaches. The Lord will bring their sins to light, and they shall lie down in eternal sorrow. Edom her represents all the enemies of the church. And the corruption, and sin of Israel, which the prophet has proved to be universal, justifies the judgments of the Lord. It shows the need of that grace in Christ Jesus which the sin and corruption of all mankind make so necessary __________________________________________________________________
