Jeremiah Mourns for His People

8"At that time," says the LORD, "they shall bring out the bones of the kings of Judah, and the bones of its princes, and the bones of the priests, and the bones of the prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, out of their graves.H6256H5002H3068H3318H6106H4428H3063H6106H8269H6106H3548H6106H5030H6106H3427H3389H6913 2"They shall spread them before the sun and the moon and all the host of heaven, which they have loved and which they have served and after which they have walked, which they have sought and which they have worshiped. They shall not be gathered nor buried; they shall be like refuse on the face of the earth.H7849H8121H3394H6635H8064H157H5647H310H1980H1875H7812H622H6912H1828H6440H127 3"Then death shall be chosen rather than life by all the residue of those who remain of this evil family, who remain in all the places where I have driven them," says the LORD of hosts.H4194H977H2416H7611H7604H7451H4940H7604H4725H5080H5002H3068H6635

The Peril of False Teaching

4"Moreover you shall say to them, 'Thus says the LORD: "Will they fall and not rise? Will one turn away and not return?H559H559H3068H5307H6965H7725H7725 5Why has this people slidden back, Jerusalem, in a perpetual backsliding? They hold fast to deceit, They refuse to return.H5971H3389H7725H5329H4878H2388H8649H3985H7725 6I listened and heard, But they do not speak aright. No man repented of his wickedness, Saying, 'What have I done?' Everyone turned to his own course, As the horse rushes into the battle.H7181H8085H1696H376H5162H5921H7451H559H6213H7725H4794H5483H7857H4421 7"Even the stork in the heavens Knows her appointed times; And the turtledove, the swift, and the swallow Observe the time of their coming. But My people do not know the judgment of the LORD.H2624H8064H3045H4150H8449H5483H5693H8104H6256H935H5971H3045H4941H3068 8"How can you say, 'We are wise, And the law of the LORD is with us'? Look, the false pen of the scribe certainly works falsehood.H559H2450H8451H3068H403H8267H6213H5842H5608H8267 9The wise men are ashamed, They are dismayed and taken. Behold, they have rejected the word of the LORD; So what wisdom do they have?H2450H3001H2865H3920H3988H1697H3068H2451 10Therefore I will give their wives to others, And their fields to those who will inherit them; Because from the least even to the greatest Everyone is given to covetousness; From the prophet even to the priest Everyone deals falsely.H5414H802H312H7704H3423H6996H1419H1214H1215H5030H3548H6213H8267 11For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of My people slightly, Saying, 'Peace, peace!' When there is no peace.H7495H7667H1323H5971H7043H559H7965H7965H7965 12Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? No! They were not at all ashamed, Nor did they know how to blush. Therefore they shall fall among those who fall; In the time of their punishment They shall be cast down," says the LORD.H3001H6213H8441H954H954H3045H3637H5307H5307H6256H6486H3782H559H3068 13"I will surely consume them," says the LORD. "No grapes shall be on the vine, Nor figs on the fig tree, And the leaf shall fade; And the things I have given them shall pass away from them."'"H622H5486H5002H3068H6025H1612H8384H8384H5929H5034H5414H5674 14"Why do we sit still? Assemble yourselves, And let us enter the fortified cities, And let us be silent there. For the LORD our God has put us to silence And given us water of gall to drink, Because we have sinned against the LORD.H3427H622H935H4013H5892H1826H3068H430H1826H4325H7219H8248H2398H3068 15"We looked for peace, but no good came; And for a time of health, and there was trouble!H6960H7965H2896H6256H4832H1205 16The snorting of His horses was heard from Dan. The whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of His strong ones; For they have come and devoured the land and all that is in it, The city and those who dwell in it."H5170H5483H8085H1835H776H7493H6963H4684H47H935H398H776H4393H5892H3427 17"For behold, I will send serpents among you, Vipers which cannot be charmed, And they shall bite you," says the LORD.H7971H5175H6848H3908H5391H5002H3068

The Prophet Mourns for the People

18I would comfort myself in sorrow; My heart is faint in me.H4010H3015H3820H1742 19Listen! The voice, The cry of the daughter of my people From a far country: "Is not the LORD in Zion? Is not her King in her?" "Why have they provoked Me to anger With their carved images—With foreign idols?"H6963H7775H1323H5971H4801H776H3068H6726H4428H3707H6456H5236H1892 20"The harvest is past, The summer is ended, And we are not saved!"H7105H5674H7019H3615H3467 21For the hurt of the daughter of my people I am hurt. I am mourning; Astonishment has taken hold of me.H7667H1323H5971H7665H6937H8047H2388 22Is there no balm in Gilead, Is there no physician there? Why then is there no recovery For the health of the daughter of my people?H6875H1568H7495H3588H724H1323H5971H5927
