Listen to the Bible
The Drought

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 14:1 -

This is the word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah concerning the drought:

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 14:2 -

Judah mourns;

her city gates languish.

Her people are on the ground in mourning;

Jerusalem’s cry rises up.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 14:3 -

Their nobles send their servants[fn] for water.

They go to the cisterns;

they find no water;

their containers return empty.

They are ashamed and humiliated;

they cover their heads.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 14:4 -

The ground is cracked

since no rain has fallen on the land.

The farmers are ashamed;

they cover their heads.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 14:5 -

Even the doe in the field

gives birth and abandons her fawn

since there is no grass.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 14:6 -

Wild donkeys stand on the barren heights

panting for air like jackals.

Their eyes fail

because there are no green plants.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 14:7 -

Though our iniquities testify against us,

Lord, act for your name’s sake.

Indeed, our rebellions are many;

we have sinned against you.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 14:8 -

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?

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 14:9 -

Why are you like a helpless man,

like a warrior unable to save?

Yet you are among us, Lord,

and we bear your name.

Don’t leave us!

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 14:10 -

This is what the Lord says concerning these people:

Truly they love to wander;

they never rest their feet.

So the Lord does not accept them.

Now he will remember their iniquity

and punish their sins.

False Prophets to be Punished

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 14:11 -

Then the Lord said to me, “Do not pray for the well-being of these people.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 14:12 -

“If they fast, I will not hear their cry of despair. If they offer burnt offering and grain offering, I will not accept them. Rather, I will finish them off by sword, famine, and plague.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 14:13 -

And I replied, “Oh no, Lord God! The prophets are telling them, ‘You won’t see sword or suffer famine. I will certainly give you lasting peace in this place.’ ”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 14:14 -

But the Lord said to me, “These prophets are prophesying a lie in my name. I did not send them, nor did I command them or speak to them. They are prophesying to you a false vision, worthless divination, the deceit of their own minds.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 14:15 -

“Therefore, this is what the Lord says concerning the prophets who prophesy in my name, though I did not send them, and who say, ‘There will never be sword or famine in this land.’ By sword and famine these prophets will meet their end.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 14:16 -

“The people they are prophesying to will be thrown into the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword. There will be no one to bury them ​— ​they, their wives, their sons, and their daughters. I will pour out their own evil on them.”

Jeremiah’s Request

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 14:17 -

You are to speak this word to them:

Let my eyes overflow with tears;

day and night may they not stop,

for the virgin daughter of my people

has been destroyed by a crushing blow,

an extremely severe wound.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 14:18 -

If I go out to the field,

look ​— ​those slain by the sword!

If I enter the city,

look ​— ​those ill from famine!

For both prophet and priest

travel to a land they do not know.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 14:19 -

Have you completely rejected Judah?

Do you detest Zion?

Why do you strike us

with no hope of healing for us?

We hoped for peace,

but there was nothing good;

for a time of healing,

but there was only terror.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 14:20 -

We acknowledge our wickedness, Lord,

the iniquity of our fathers;

indeed, we have sinned against you.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 14:21 -

For your name’s sake, don’t despise us.

Don’t disdain your glorious throne.

Remember your covenant with us;

do not break it.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 14:22 -

Can any of the worthless idols of the nations bring rain?

Or can the skies alone give showers?

Are you not the Lord our God?

We therefore put our hope in you,

for you have done all these things.
