Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Lamentations 2:7

Zain

_ _ they ... made a noise in ... house of ... Lord, as in ... feast — The foe’s shout of triumph in the captured temple bore a resemblance (but oh, how sad a contrast as to the occasion of it!) to the joyous thanksgivings we used to offer in the same place at our “solemn feasts” (compare Lamentations 2:22).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Lamentations 2:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Lamentations 2:7

They — The enemies with their triumphs and blasphemies, made as great a noise, as those that sang holy songs, or played on instruments, were wont to make to the glory of God.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Lamentations 2:7

The Lord hath cast off his altar, he hath abhorred his sanctuary, he hath given up into the hand of the enemy the walls of her palaces; they have made a (g) noise in the house of the LORD, as in the day of a solemn feast.

(g) As the people were accustomed to praising God to the solemn feasts with a loud voice, so now the enemies blaspheme him with shouting and cry.
