Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Lamentations 1:2

Beth

_ _ in the night — even in the night, the period of rest and oblivion of griefs (Job 7:3).

_ _ lovers ... friends — the heathen states allied to Judah, and their idols. The idols whom she “loved” (Jeremiah 2:20-25) could not comfort her. Her former allies would not: nay, some “treacherously” joined her enemies against her (2 Kings 24:2, 2 Kings 24:7; Psalms 137:7).
