    Definitions for Lamentations 3:40

    Let - To hinder or obstruct.

    Clarke's Commentary on Lamentations 3:40

    Let us search - How are we to get the pardon of our sins? The prophet tells us:

    1. Let us examine ourselves.

    2. "Let us turn again to the Lord."

    3. "Let us lift up our heart;" let us make fervent prayer and supplication for mercy.

    4. "Let us lift up our hand;" let us solemnly promise to be his, and bind ourselves in a covenant to be the Lord's only: so much lifting up the hand to God implies. Or, let us put our heart on our hand, and offer it to God; so some have translated this clause.

    5. "We have transgressed;" let our confession of sin be fervent and sincere.

    6. And to us who profess Christianity it may be added, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ as having died for thee; and thou shalt not perish, but have everlasting life.
