Jeremiah 10:21-23

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 10

21 For the shepherds have become stupid And have not sought the LORD. Therefore they have not prospered, And all their flock is scattered. 22 The sound of a report! Behold, it is coming— A great roar from the land of the north— To make the cities of Judah A desolation, a haunt of jackals. 23 I know, LORD, that a person’s way is not in himself, Nor is it in a person who walks to direct his steps.
King James Version

Chapter 10

21 For the pastors are become brutish, and have not sought the LORD: therefore they shall not prosper, and all their flocks shall be scattered. 22 Behold, the noise of the bruit is come, and a great commotion out of the north country, to make the cities of Judah desolate, and a den of dragons. 23 O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 10

21 For the shepherds are stupid: They don't seek the Lord. Therefore they have not prospered, and their whole flock is scattered.
22 Listen! A noise--it is coming -- a great commotion from the land to the north. The cities of Judah will be made desolate, a jackals' den. 23 I know, Lord, that a person's way of life is not his own; no one who walks determines his own steps.
New Living Translation

Chapter 10

21 The shepherds of my people have lost their senses. They no longer seek wisdom from the LORD. Therefore, they fail completely, and their flocks are scattered. 22 Listen! Hear the terrifying roar of great armies as they roll down from the north. The towns of Judah will be destroyed and become a haunt for jackals.
23 I know, LORD, that our lives are not our own. We are not able to plan our own course.
English Standard Version

Chapter 10

21 For the shepherds are stupid and do not inquire of the LORD; therefore they have not prospered, and all their flock is scattered. 22 A voice, a rumor! Behold, it comes!— a great commotion out of the north country to make the cities of Judah a desolation, a lair of jackals. 23 I know, O LORD, that the way of man is not in himself, that it is not in man who walks to direct his steps.
New International Version

Chapter 10

21 The shepherds are senseless and do not inquire of the LORD; so they do not prosper and all their flock is scattered. 22 Listen! The report is coming-- a great commotion from the land of the north! It will make the towns of Judah desolate, a haunt of jackals. 23 LORD, I know that people's lives are not their own; it is not for them to direct their steps.
