Restoration

Remember, Lord, what has happened to us;
    look, and see our disgrace.
Our inheritance has been turned over to strangers,
    our homes to foreigners.
We have become fatherless,
    our mothers are widows.
We must buy the water we drink;
    our wood can be had only at a price.
These verses taken from the book of Lamentations. Written over 3000 years ago. And though Jesus died for us. Look at the similarities of the suffering. Then and now. It is uncanny.
