Lamentations 3:22-23 (KJVA)

22.  It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
23.  They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

The prophet, by enumerating his own severe trials, and showing his trust in God, encourages his people to the like resignation and trust in the Divine and never-failing mercy. He vindicates the goodness of God in all his dispensations, and the unreasonableness of murmuring under them. He recommends self-examination and repentance; and then, from their experience of former deliverances from God, encourages them to look for pardon for their sins, and retribution to their enemies.
