    King James Bible - Lamentations 4:8

    Their visage is blacker than a coal; they are not known in the streets: their skin cleaveth to their bones; it is withered, it is become like a stick.

    World English Bible

    Their appearance is blacker than a coal; they are not known in the streets: Their
    skin clings to their bones; it is withered, it is become like a stick.

    Douay-Rheims - Lamentations 4:8

    Heth. Their face is now made blacker than coals, and they are not known in the streets: their
    skin hath stuck to their bones, it is withered, and is become like wood.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Their visage is blacker than a coal; they are not known in the streets: their
    skin cleaveth to their bones; it is withered, it is become like a stick.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:8

    Chet : Oscura más que la negrura es la forma de ellos; no los conocen por las calles. Su piel está pegada a sus huesos, seco como un palo.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. Their visage is blacker than a
    coal , etc.] Or, “darker than blackness”; or, “dark through blackness” f119 ; by reason of the famine, and because of grief and trouble for themselves and their friends, which changed their complexions, countenances, and skins; they that looked before as pure as snow, as white as milk, as clear as pearls, as polished as sapphire, now as black as charcoal, as blackness itself: they are not known in the streets ; not taken notice of in a distinguished manner; no respect shown them as they walk the streets, as used to be; nay, their countenances were so altered, and their apparel so sordid, as not to be known by their friends, when they met them in public: their skin cleaveth to their bones ; have nothing but skin and bone, who used to be plump and fat: it is withered, it is become like a stick ; the skin wrinkled and shrivelled up, the flesh being gone; and the bone became like a stick, or a dry piece of wood, its moisture and marrow being dried up.
    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 __________________________________________________________________
