Don’t leave us!

Tools specific to Jer 14:10

Tools specific to Jer 14:12

Tools specific to Jer 14:14

Unchecked Copy Box Jer 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 Box Jer 14:15

Unchecked Copy Box Jer 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.”

For both prophet and priest

travel to a land they do not know.

Tools specific to Jer 14:19

Unchecked Copy Box Jer 14:19

Have You completely rejected Judah?

Do You detest  Zion?

Why do You strike us

for a time of healing,

but there was only terror.
