Jeremiah 14:5-8

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 14

5 For even the doe in the field has given birth only to abandon her young, Because there is no grass. 6 The wild donkeys stand on the bare heights; They pant for air like jackals, Their eyes fail Because there is no vegetation. 7 Though our wrongdoings testify against us, LORD, act for the sake of Your name! Our apostasies have indeed been many, We have sinned against You. 8 Hope of Israel, Its Savior in time of distress, Why are You like a stranger in the land, Or like a traveler who has pitched his tent for the night?
King James Version

Chapter 14

5 Yea, the hind also calved in the field, and forsook it, because there was no grass. 6 And the wild asses did stand in the high places, they snuffed up the wind like dragons; their eyes did fail, because there was no grass. 7 O LORD, though our iniquities testify against us, do thou it for thy name's sake: for our backslidings are many; we have sinned against thee. 8 O the hope of Israel, the saviour thereof in time of trouble, why shouldest thou be as a stranger in the land, and as a wayfaring man that turneth aside to tarry for a night?
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 14

5 Even the doe in the field gives birth and abandons her fawn since there is no grass.
6 Wild donkeys stand on the barren heights panting for air like jackals. Their eyes fail because there are no green plants. 7 Though our iniquities testify against us, Lord, act for your name's sake. Indeed, our rebellions are many; we have sinned against you. 8 Hope of Israel, its Savior in time of distress, why are you like a resident alien in the land, like a traveler stopping only for the night?
New Living Translation

Chapter 14

5 Even the doe abandons her newborn fawn because there is no grass in the field. 6 The wild donkeys stand on the bare hills panting like thirsty jackals. They strain their eyes looking for grass, but there is none to be found.'
7 The people say, 'Our wickedness has caught up with us, LORD, but help us for the sake of your own reputation. We have turned away from you and sinned against you again and again. 8 O Hope of Israel, our Savior in times of trouble, why are you like a stranger to us? Why are you like a traveler passing through the land, stopping only for the night?

6 Wild donkeys stand on the barren heights and pant like jackals; their eyes fail for lack of food.' 7 Although our sins testify against us, do something, LORD, for the sake of your name. For we have often rebelled; we have sinned against you. 8 You who are the hope of Israel, its Savior in times of distress, why are you like a stranger in the land, like a traveler who stays only a night?
