Description for THE COMMUNICATOR'S COMMENTARY: JEREMIAH, LAMENTATIONS by John Guest and edited by Lloyd J Ogilvie:

The role of messenger is a thankless one. We want to know, but what we hear is not always what we want to hear. Sometimes we take out our frustrations on the messenger. Today it is called media bashing, in ancient lands the prophet was stoned. John Guest points to the impact of Jeremiah's writings on the New Testament in Matthew, Acts, Paul's Letters, and Revelation. Regarding the Book of Lamentations, Guest observes that its first word "speaks in the universal language of all humanity: a great sigh." It is "a moan that collects the sufferings of all people bereaved of God and battered by their own sinfulness." The source of balm for this agony is still the God of Israel, the source of all restoration.
