    Clarke's Commentary on Lamentations 1:21

    They have heard that I sigh - My affliction is public enough; but no one comes to comfort me.

    They are glad that thou hast done it - On the contrary, they exult in my misery; and they see that Thou hast done what they were incapable of performing.

    Thou wilt bring the day that thou hast called, and they shall be like unto me - Babylon shall be visited in her turn; and thy judgments poured out upon her shall equal her state with my own. See the last six chapters of the preceding prophecy for the accomplishment of this prediction.

    Barnes' Notes on Lamentations 1:21

    They have heard ... - Or, "They heard that I sigh," that I have "no comforter."

    Thou wilt bring the day ... - literally, thou hast brought "the day thou hast proclaimed, and they shall be like unto me." The day of Judah's punishment was the proof that the nations now triumphing over Jerusalem's fall would certainly be visited.

    Wesley's Notes on Lamentations 1:21

    1:21 They - The neighbouring nations. Like me - But thou hast foretold their destruction also, and hast by me proclaimed it: and thou shalt in that day bring them into as sad a condition as I am in now.
