Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:1 - [fn]Oh that my head were waters
And my eyes a fountain of tears,
That I might weep day and night
For the slain of the daughter of my people!

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:2 - [fn]Oh that I had in the desert
A wayfarers’ lodging place;
That I might leave my people
And go from them!
For all of them are adulterers,
An assembly of treacherous men.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:3 - “They bend their tongue like their bow;
Lies and not truth prevail in the land;
For they proceed from evil to evil,
And they do not know Me,” declares the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:4 - “Let everyone be on guard against his neighbor,
And do not trust any brother;
Because every brother deals [fn]craftily,
And every neighbor goes about as a slanderer.

And does not speak the truth,
They have taught their tongue to speak lies;
They weary themselves committing iniquity.

Through deceit they refuse to know Me,” declares the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:7 - Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts,
“Behold, I will refine them and assay them;
For what else can I do, because of the daughter of My people?

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:8 - “Their tongue is a deadly arrow;
It speaks deceit;
With his mouth one speaks peace to his neighbor,
But inwardly he sets an ambush for him.

“On a nation such as this
Shall I not avenge Myself?

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:10 - “For the mountains I will take up a weeping and wailing,
And for the pastures of the wilderness a dirge,
Because they are laid waste so that no one passes through,
And the lowing of the cattle is not heard;
Both the birds of the sky and the beasts have fled; they are gone.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:11 - “I will make Jerusalem a heap of ruins,
A haunt of jackals;
And I will make the cities of Judah a desolation, without inhabitant.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:12 - Who is the wise man that may understand this? And who is he to whom the mouth of the LORD has spoken, that he may declare it? Why is the land ruined, laid waste like a desert, so that no one passes through?

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:13 - The LORD said, “Because they have forsaken My law which I set before them, and have not obeyed My voice nor walked according to it,

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:14 - but have walked after the stubbornness of their heart and after the Baals, as their fathers taught them,”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:15 - therefore thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, “behold, I will feed them, this people, with wormwood and give them poisoned water to drink.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:16 - “I will scatter them among the nations, whom neither they nor their fathers have known; and I will send the sword after them until I have annihilated them.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:17 - Thus says the LORD of hosts,
“Consider and call for the mourning women, that they may come;
And send for the [fn]wailing women, that they may come!

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:18 - “Let them make haste and take up a wailing for us,
That our eyes may shed tears
And our eyelids flow with water.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:19 - “For a voice of wailing is heard from Zion,
‘How are we ruined!
We are put to great shame,
For we have left the land,
Because they have cast down our dwellings.’”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:20 - Now hear the word of the LORD, O you women,
And let your ear receive the word of His mouth;
Teach your daughters wailing,
And everyone her neighbor a dirge.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:21 - For death has come up through our windows;
It has entered our palaces
To cut off the children from the streets,
The young men from the town squares.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:22 - Speak, “Thus says the LORD,
‘The corpses of men will fall like dung on the open field,
And like the sheaf after the reaper,
But no one will gather them.’”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:23 - Thus says the LORD, “Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches;

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:24 - but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the LORD who exercises lovingkindness, justice and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things,” declares the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:25 - “Behold, the days are coming,” declares the LORD, “that I will punish all who are circumcised and yet uncircumcised—

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:26 - Egypt and Judah, and Edom and the sons of Ammon, and Moab and all those inhabiting the desert who clip the hair on their temples; for all the nations are uncircumcised, and all the house of Israel are uncircumcised of heart.”
