Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:1 - Flee for safety, O people of Benjamin,
from the midst of Jerusalem!
Blow the trumpet in Tekoa,
and raise a signal on Beth-haccherem,
for disaster looms out of the north,
and great destruction.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:2 - The lovely and delicately bred I will destroy,
the daughter of Zion.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:3 - Shepherds with their flocks shall come against her;
they shall pitch their tents around her;
they shall pasture, each in his place.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:4 - “Prepare war against her;
arise, and let us attack at noon!
Woe to us, for the day declines,
for the shadows of evening lengthen!

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:5 - Arise, and let us attack by night
and destroy her palaces!”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:6 - For thus says the LORD of hosts:
“Cut down her trees;
cast up a siege mound against Jerusalem.
This is the city that must be punished;
there is nothing but oppression within her.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:7 - As a well keeps its water fresh,
so she keeps fresh her evil;
violence and destruction are heard within her;
sickness and wounds are ever before me.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:8 - Be warned, O Jerusalem,
lest I turn from you in disgust,
lest I make you a desolation,
an uninhabited land.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:9 - Thus says the LORD of hosts:
“They shall glean thoroughly as a vine
the remnant of Israel;
like a grape gatherer pass your hand again
over its branches.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:10 - To whom shall I speak and give warning,
that they may hear?
Behold, their ears are uncircumcised,
they cannot listen;
behold, the word of the LORD is to them an object of scorn;
they take no pleasure in it.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:11 - Therefore I am full of the wrath of the LORD;
I am weary of holding it in.
“Pour it out upon the children in the street,
and upon the gatherings of young men, also;
both husband and wife shall be taken,
the elderly and the very aged.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:12 - Their houses shall be turned over to others,
their fields and wives together,
for I will stretch out my hand
against the inhabitants of the land,”
declares the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:13 - “For from the least to the greatest of them,
everyone is greedy for unjust gain;
and from prophet to priest,
everyone deals falsely.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:14 - They have healed the wound of my people lightly,
saying, ‘Peace, peace,’
when there is no peace.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:15 - Were they ashamed when they committed abomination?
No, they were not at all ashamed;
they did not know how to blush.
Therefore they shall fall among those who fall;
at the time that I punish them, they shall be overthrown,”
says the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:16 - Thus says the LORD:
“Stand by the roads, and look,
and ask for the ancient paths,
where the good way is; and walk in it,
and find rest for your souls.
But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:17 - I set watchmen over you, saying,
‘Pay attention to the sound of the trumpet!’
But they said, ‘We will not pay attention.’

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:18 - Therefore hear, O nations,
and know, O congregation, what will happen to them.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:19 - Hear, O earth; behold, I am bringing disaster upon this people,
the fruit of their devices,
because they have not paid attention to my words;
and as for my law, they have rejected it.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:20 - What use to me is frankincense that comes from Sheba,
or sweet cane from a distant land?
Your burnt offerings are not acceptable,
nor your sacrifices pleasing to me.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:21 - Therefore thus says the LORD:
‘Behold, I will lay before this people
stumbling blocks against which they shall stumble;
fathers and sons together,
neighbor and friend shall perish.’”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:22 - Thus says the LORD:
“Behold, a people is coming from the north country,
a great nation is stirring from the farthest parts of the earth.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:23 - They lay hold on bow and javelin;
they are cruel and have no mercy;
the sound of them is like the roaring sea;
they ride on horses,
set in array as a man for battle,
against you, O daughter of Zion!”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:24 - We have heard the report of it;
our hands fall helpless;
anguish has taken hold of us,
pain as of a woman in labor.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:25 - Go not out into the field,
nor walk on the road,
for the enemy has a sword;
terror is on every side.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:26 - O daughter of my people, put on sackcloth,
and roll in ashes;
make mourning as for an only son,
most bitter lamentation,
for suddenly the destroyer
will come upon us.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:27 - “I have made you a tester of metals among my people,
that you may know and test their ways.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:28 - They are all stubbornly rebellious,
going about with slanders;
they are bronze and iron;
all of them act corruptly.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:29 - The bellows blow fiercely;
the lead is consumed by the fire;
in vain the refining goes on,
for the wicked are not removed.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:30 - Rejected silver they are called,
for the LORD has rejected them.”
