Jerusalem a desolation.

  2. Isaiah 64:11 have become a ruin

He has done violence (A)to His [a]tabernacle,
(B)As if it were a garden;
He has destroyed His place of assembly;
The Lord has caused
The appointed feasts and Sabbaths to be forgotten in Zion.
In His burning indignation He has (C)spurned the king and the priest.

The Lord has spurned His altar,
He has (D)abandoned His sanctuary;
He has [b]given up the walls of her palaces
Into the hand of the enemy.
(E)They have made a noise in the house of the Lord
As on the day of a set feast.

The Lord has [c]purposed to destroy
The (F)wall of the daughter of Zion.
(G)He has stretched out a line;
He has not withdrawn His hand from destroying;
Therefore He has caused the rampart and wall to lament;
They languished together.

Her gates have sunk into the ground;
He has destroyed and (H)broken her bars.
(I)Her king and her princes are among the [d]nations;
(J)The Law is no more,
And her (K)prophets find no [e]vision from the Lord.

Jesus Weeps over Jerusalem

41 Now as He drew near, He saw the city and (A)wept over it, 42 saying, “If you had known, even you, especially in this (B)your day, the things that (C)make for your (D)peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. 43 For days will come upon you when your enemies will (E)build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side, 44 (F)and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and (G)they will not leave in you one stone upon another, (H)because you did not know the time of your visitation.”
