Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:1 -

If my head were a flowing spring,

my eyes a fountain of tears,

I would weep day and night

over the slain of my dear[fn] people.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:2 -

If only I had a traveler’s lodging place

in the wilderness,

I would abandon my people

and depart from them,

for they are all adulterers,

a solemn assembly of treacherous people.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:3 -

They bent their tongues like their bows;

lies and not faithfulness prevail in the land,

for they proceed from one evil to another,

and they do not take me into account.

This is the LORD’s declaration.

Imminent Ruin and Exile

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:4 -

Everyone has to be on guard against his friend.

Don’t trust any brother,

for every brother will certainly deceive,

and every friend spread slander.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:5 -

Each one betrays his friend;

no one tells the truth.

They have taught their tongues to speak lies;

they wear themselves out doing wrong.

You live in a world of deception.[fn]

In their deception they refuse to know me.

This is the LORD’s declaration.

Therefore, this is what the LORD of Armies says:

I am about to refine them and test them,

for what else can I do

because of my dear[fn] people?[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:8 -

Their tongues are deadly arrows —

they speak deception.

With his mouth

one speaks peaceably with his friend,

but inwardly he sets up an ambush.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:9 -

Should I not punish them for these things?

This is the LORD’s declaration.

Should I not avenge myself

on such a nation as this?

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:10 -

I will raise weeping and a lament

over the mountains,

a dirge over the wilderness grazing land,

for they have been so scorched

that no one passes through.

The sound of cattle is no longer heard.

From the birds of the sky to the animals,

everything has fled ​— ​they have gone away.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:11 -

I will make Jerusalem a heap of rubble,

a jackals’ den.

I will make the cities of Judah a desolation,

an uninhabited place.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:12 -

Who is the person wise enough to understand this? Who has the LORD spoken to, that he may explain it? Why is the land destroyed and scorched like a wilderness, so no one can pass through?

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:13 -

The LORD said, “It is because they abandoned my instruction, which I set before them, and did not obey my voice or walk according to it.

Consider, and summon the women who mourn;

send for the skillful women.

Let them come quickly to raise a lament over us

so that our eyes may overflow with tears,

our eyelids be soaked with weeping.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:19 -

For a sound of lamentation is heard from Zion:

How devastated we are.

We are greatly ashamed,

for we have abandoned the land;

our dwellings have been torn down.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:20 -

Now hear the word of the LORD, you women.

Pay attention to[fn] the words from his mouth.

Teach your daughters a lament

and one another a dirge,

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:21 -

for Death has climbed through our windows;

it has entered our fortresses,

cutting off children from the streets,

young men from the squares.

The wise person should not boast in his wisdom;

the strong should not boast in his strength;

the wealthy should not boast in his wealth.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:24 -

“But the one who boasts should boast in this:

that he understands and knows me —

that I am the LORD, showing faithful love,

justice, and righteousness on the earth,

for I delight in these things.

This is the LORD’s declaration.
