    Clarke's Commentary on Lamentations 5:2

    Our inheritance is turned to strangers - The greater part of the Jews were either slain or carried away captive; and even those who were left under Gedaliah were not free, for they were vassals to the Chaldeans.

    Barnes' Notes on Lamentations 5:2

    Turned - "transferred." The inheritance was the land of Canaan Leviticus 20:24.

    Aliens - Or, "foreigners:" i. e. the Chaldaeans upon their conquest of the country.
