Lamentations 3:55 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

נגּר means to be poured out, empty self; cf. 2 Samuel 14:14; Micah 1:4. "And is not silent" equals and rests not, i.e., incessantly; cf. Jeremiah 14:17. מאין הפגות does not mean, eo quod non sint intermissiones miseriarum vel fletus (C. B. Michaelis and Rosenmller, following the Chaldee), but "so that there is no intermission or drying up." As to הפגות, which means the same as פּוּגה, see on Lamentations 2:18. "Until the Lord look down from heaven and examine," in order to put an end to the distress, or to take compassion on His people. On ישׁקיף, cf. Psalm 14:2; Psalm 102:20.
