Lamentations 3:39-41 AMP
Why should any living mortal, or any man,
Complain [of punishment] in view of his sins?
Let us test and examine our ways,
And let us return to the LORD.
Let us lift up our hearts and our hands [in prayer]
Toward God in heaven
Lamentations 3:55-58 AMP
I called on Your name, O LORD,
Out of the lowest pit.
You have heard my voice,
“Do not hide Your ear from my prayer for relief,
From my cry for help.”
You drew near on the day I called to You;
You said, “Do not fear.”
O Lord, You have pleaded my soul’s cause [You have guided my way and protected me];
You have rescued and redeemed my life.
