Jeremiah 6:26

O daughter of my people, gird thee with sackcloth
Either as a token of repentance for sin; so the king of Nineveh and his subjects did, to show their repentance, (Jonah 3:6,8) or as a sign of mourning, for the calamities coming on them, (Genesis 37:34) and wallow thyself in ashes;
or roll thyself in them, as a token of the same. The Targum is,

``cover your heads with ashes.''
Make thee mourning as for an only son;
which of all is the most bitter: and therefore it is added, most bitter lamentation;
see (Zechariah 12:10) . For the spoiler shall suddenly come upon us;
namely, Nebuchadnezzar, that would spoil their cities, towns, villages, and houses, and them of all their wealth and substance, and carry it away.
