Jeremiah 8
English Standard Version
8"At that time, declares the LORD, the bones of the kings of Judah, the bones of its officials, the bones of the priests, the bones of the prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be brought out of their tombs.H6256H5002H3068H3318H6106H4428H3063H6106H8269H6106H3548H6106H5030H6106H3427H3389H6913 2And they shall be spread before the sun and the moon and all the host of heaven, which they have loved and served, which they have gone after, and which they have sought and worshiped. And they shall not be gathered or buried. They shall be as dung on the surface of the ground.H7849H8121H3394H6635H8064H157H5647H310H1980H1875H7812H622H6912H1828H6440H127 3Death shall be preferred to life by all the remnant that remains of this evil family in all the places where I have driven them, declares the LORD of hosts.H4194H977H2416H7611H7604H7451H4940H7604H4725H5080H5002H3068H6635

Sin and Treachery

4"You shall say to them, Thus says the LORD: When men fall, do they not rise again? If one turns away, does he not return?H559H559H3068H5307H6965H7725H7725 5Why then has this people turned away in perpetual backsliding? They hold fast to deceit; they refuse to return.H5971H3389H7725H5329H4878H2388H8649H3985H7725 6I have paid attention and listened, but they have not spoken rightly; no man relents of his evil, saying, 'What have I done?' Everyone turns to his own course, like a horse plunging headlong into battle.H7181H8085H1696H376H5162H5921H7451H559H6213H7725H4794H5483H7857H4421 7Even the stork in the heavens knows her times, and the turtledove, swallow, and crane keep the time of their coming, but my people know not the rules of the LORD.H2624H8064H3045H4150H8449H5483H5693H8104H6256H935H5971H3045H4941H3068 8"How can you say, 'We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us'? But behold, the lying pen of the scribes has made it into a lie.H559H2450H8451H3068H403H8267H6213H5842H5608H8267 9The wise men shall be put to shame; they shall be dismayed and taken; behold, they have rejected the word of the LORD, so what wisdom is in them?H2450H3001H2865H3920H3988H1697H3068H2451 10Therefore I will give their wives to others and their fields to conquerors, because from the least to the greatest everyone is greedy for unjust gain; from prophet to priest, everyone deals falsely.H5414H802H312H7704H3423H6996H1419H1214H1215H5030H3548H6213H8267 11They have healed the wound of my people lightly, saying, 'Peace, peace,' when there is no peace.H7495H7667H1323H5971H7043H559H7965H7965H7965 12Were they ashamed when they committed abomination? No, they were not at all ashamed; they did not know how to blush. Therefore they shall fall among the fallen; when I punish them, they shall be overthrown, says the LORD.H3001H6213H8441H954H954H3045H3637H5307H5307H6256H6486H3782H559H3068 13When I would gather them, declares the LORD, there are no grapes on the vine, nor figs on the fig tree; even the leaves are withered, and what I gave them has passed away from them."H622H5486H5002H3068H6025H1612H8384H8384H5929H5034H5414H5674 14Why do we sit still? Gather together; let us go into the fortified cities and perish there, for the LORD our God has doomed us to perish and has given us poisoned water to drink, because we have sinned against the LORD.H3427H622H935H4013H5892H1826H3068H430H1826H4325H7219H8248H2398H3068 15We looked for peace, but no good came; for a time of healing, but behold, terror.H6960H7965H2896H6256H4832H1205 16"The snorting of their horses is heard from Dan; at the sound of the neighing of their stallions the whole land quakes. They come and devour the land and all that fills it, the city and those who dwell in it.H5170H5483H8085H1835H776H7493H6963H4684H47H935H398H776H4393H5892H3427 17For behold, I am sending among you serpents, adders that cannot be charmed, and they shall bite you," declares the LORD.H7971H5175H6848H3908H5391H5002H3068

Jeremiah Grieves for His People

18My joy is gone; grief is upon me; my heart is sick within me.H4010H3015H3820H1742 19Behold, the cry of the daughter of my people from the length and breadth of the land: "Is the LORD not in Zion? Is her King not in her?" "Why have they provoked me to anger with their carved images and with their foreign idols?"H6963H7775H1323H5971H4801H776H3068H6726H4428H3707H6456H5236H1892 20"The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved."H7105H5674H7019H3615H3467 21For the wound of the daughter of my people is my heart wounded; I mourn, and dismay has taken hold on me.H7667H1323H5971H7665H6937H8047H2388 22Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then has the health of the daughter of my people not been restored?H6875H1568H7495H3588H724H1323H5971H5927
