Tools specific to Jer 8:2

Unchecked Copy Box Jer 8:2

They will be exposed  to the sun, the moon, and the whole heavenly host,  which they have loved, served, followed, consulted, and worshiped. Their bones will not be collected and buried but will become like manure on the surface of the soil. 

Tools specific to Jer 8:3

Unchecked Copy Box Jer 8:3

Death will be chosen over life  by all the survivors of this evil family, those who remain wherever I have banished them.”  This is the declaration of the LORD of Hosts.

“You are to say to them: This is what the LORD says:

Do people fall and not get up again? 

If they turn away, do they not return?

Tools specific to Jer 8:5

Unchecked Copy Box Jer 8:5

Why have these people turned away?

Why is Jerusalem always turning away?

They take hold of deceit; 

they refuse to return. 

Tools specific to Jer 8:6

Unchecked Copy Box Jer 8:6

I have paid careful attention.

They do not speak what is right.

No one regrets his evil,

asking, ‘What have I done?’

Everyone has stayed his course

like a horse rushing into battle. 

Tools specific to Jer 8:7

Unchecked Copy Box Jer 8:7

Even the stork in the sky

knows her seasons.

The turtledove, swallow, and crane [fn]

are aware of their migration,

but My people do not know

the requirements of the LORD. 

  
Punishment for Judah’s Leaders

Tools specific to Jer 8:8

Unchecked Copy Box Jer 8:8

“How can you claim, ‘We are wise;

the law of the LORD is with us’?

In fact, the lying pen of scribes 

has produced falsehood.

Tools specific to Jer 8:9

Unchecked Copy Box Jer 8:9

The wise will be put to shame;

they will be dismayed and snared.

They have rejected the word of the LORD, 

so what wisdom do they really have?

Tools specific to Jer 8:10

Unchecked Copy Box Jer 8:10

Therefore, I will give  their wives to other men,

their fields to new occupants,

for from the least to the greatest, 

everyone is making profit dishonestly.

From prophet to priest,

everyone deals falsely.

Tools specific to Jer 8:11

Unchecked Copy Box Jer 8:11

They have treated superficially the brokenness

of My dear [fn] people,

claiming, ‘Peace, peace,’

when there is no peace.

Tools specific to Jer 8:12

Unchecked Copy Box Jer 8:12

Were they ashamed when they acted so abhorrently?

They weren’t at all ashamed.

They can no longer feel humiliation.

Therefore, they will fall among the fallen.

When I punish them, they will collapse,” 

says the LORD.

Tools specific to Jer 8:13

Unchecked Copy Box Jer 8:13

I will gather them and bring them to an end. [fn]  

This is the LORD’s declaration.

There will be no grapes on the vine,

no figs on the fig tree,

and even the leaf will wither.

Whatever I have given them will be lost to them.

  
God’s People Unrepentant

Tools specific to Jer 8:14

Unchecked Copy Box Jer 8:14

Why are we just sitting here?

Gather together; let us enter the fortified cities

and perish there, [fn]

for the LORD our God has destroyed [fn] us.

He has given us poisoned water to drink, 

because we have sinned against the LORD. 

Tools specific to Jer 8:15

Unchecked Copy Box Jer 8:15

We hoped for peace, but there was nothing good;

for a time of healing, but there was only terror. 

Tools specific to Jer 8:16

From Dan the snorting of horses is heard.

At the sound of the neighing of mighty steeds, 

the whole land quakes.

They come to devour the land and everything in it,

the city and all its residents.

Tools specific to Jer 8:17

Unchecked Copy Box Jer 8:17

Indeed, I am about to send snakes among you,

poisonous vipers  that cannot be charmed. 

They will bite you.

This is the LORD’s declaration.

  
Lament over Judah

My joy has flown away;

grief has settled on me.

My heart is sick. 

Tools specific to Jer 8:19

Listen — the cry of my dear [fn] people

from a far away land,

“Is the LORD no longer in Zion, 

her King not within her? ”

Why have they provoked me to anger

with their carved images,

with their worthless foreign idols? 

Tools specific to Jer 8:20

Unchecked Copy Box Jer 8:20

Harvest has passed, summer has ended,

but we have not been saved.

Tools specific to Jer 8:21

Unchecked Copy Box Jer 8:21

I am broken by the brokenness

of my dear [fn] people. 

I mourn; horror has taken hold of me.

Tools specific to Jer 8:22

Unchecked Copy Box Jer 8:22

Is there no balm in Gilead? 

Is there no physician there?

So why has the healing of my dear [fn] people

not come about?
