Lamentations 3:3 – Disciplined All the Day

Lamentations 3:3 - Surely against me He has turned His hand repeatedly all the day. (NASB)

The above verse continues the thoughts begun in Lamentations 3:1, in which the speaker expresses his experience of being disciplined by God.

Break it down: Let’s look at the key Hebrew words in the passage and their meanings.

ak - surely, howbeit, only
shub - to turn back, return
haphak - to turn, overturn
yad - hand
kol - the whole, all
yom - day

Expand and Dig: Let’s use these meanings to expand the passage and dig deeper.

Surely He has repeatedly come to me, and has turned His hand against, me all the day.
