The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleLamentations 3:49
Mine eye trickleth down, and ceaseth not…
as the Targum: the prophet was continually weeping; the distresses of
his people were always uppermost in his mind; and which so affected
him, that it drew tears from his eyes, which constantly trickled down
without any intermission;
or, "without intermissions" F14; there were
no stops or pauses in his grief, and in the expressions of it: or it
may be rendered, "because [there were] no intermissions" F15; that is,
of the miseries of his people; so Jarchi,
``because there were no changes and passing away;''
that is of evils; and to the same purpose the Targum,
``because there is none that intermits my distress, and speaks
comforts to me.''
