    Barnes' Notes on Lamentations 3:11

    The meaning is, "God, as a lion, lying in wait, has made me turn aside from my path, but my flight was in vain, for springing upon me from His ambush lie has torn me in pieces."

    Desolate - Or, astonied, stupefied that he cannot flee. The word is a favorite one with Jeremiah.
