Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Lamentations 1:14

Nun

_ _ yoke ... is bound by his hand — (Deuteronomy 28:48). Metaphor from husbandmen, who, after they have bound the yoke to the neck of oxen, hold the rein firmly twisted round the hand. Thus the translation will be, “in His hand.” Or else, “the yoke of my transgressions” (that is, of punishment for my transgressions) is held so fast fixed on me “by” God, that there is no loosening of it; thus English Version,by His hand.”

_ _ wreathed — My sins are like the withes entwined about the neck to fasten the yoke to.

_ _ into their hands, from whom — into the hands of those, from whom, etc. Maurer translates, “before whom I am not able to stand.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Lamentations 1:12-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Lamentations 1:14

Is bound — Put upon my neck on account of my transgressions. Wreathed — My punishments are twisted as cords; I have a complication of judgments upon me, sword, famine, pestilence, captivity.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Lamentations 1:14

The (p) yoke of my transgressions is bound by his hand: they are knit together, [and] come up upon my neck: he hath made my strength to fall, the Lord hath delivered me into [their] hands, [from whom] I am not able to rise.

(p) My heavy sins are continually before his eyes as he that ties a thing to his hand for a reminder.
