Lamentations 2:7 The Lord has scorned His altar, disowned His sanctuary; He has delivered into the hand of the enemy the walls of her palaces; they raised a clamor in the house of the LORD as on the day of festival.
Bricks and mortar are, it would seem, no guarantee of God's favour or indulgence. Even the temple, that sacred spot in the centre of Jerusalem, fell into the hands of the enemy due to the sins of the people and the nation.
Should we expect anything less to happen in response to our disobedience and arrogant disregard for God and His laws?
