Jeremiah 4:16-28

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 4

16'Report it to the nations, now! Proclaim to Jerusalem, ‘ Enemies are coming from a remote country, And they raise their voices against the cities of Judah. 17Like watchmen of a field they are against her all around, Because she has rebelled against Me,’ declares the Lord. 18Your ways and your deeds Have brought these things upon you. This is your evil. How bitter! How it has touched your heart!' 19My soul, my soul! I am in anguish! Oh, my heart! My heart is pounding in me; I cannot keep silent, Because, my soul, you have heard The sound of the trumpet, The alarm of war. 20Disaster upon disaster is proclaimed, For the whole land is devastated; Suddenly my tents are devastated, And my curtains in an instant. 21How long must I see the flag And hear the sound of the trumpet? 22'For My people are foolish, They do not know Me; They are foolish children And have no understanding. They are skillful at doing evil, But they do not know how to do good.' 23I looked at the earth, and behold, it was a formless and desolate emptiness; And to the heavens, and they had no light. 24I looked on the mountains, and behold, they were quaking, And all the hills jolted back and forth. 25I looked, and behold, there was no human, And all the birds of the sky had fled. 26I looked, and behold, the fruitful land was a wilderness, And all its cities were pulled down Before the Lord, before His fierce anger. 27For this is what the Lord says: 'The whole land shall be a desolation, Yet I will not execute a complete destruction. 28For this the earth will mourn, And the heavens above will become dark, Because I have spoken, I have purposed, And I have not changed My mind, nor will I turn from it.'
