Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:1 - “O you children of Benjamin,
Gather yourselves to flee from the midst of Jerusalem!
Blow the trumpet in Tekoa,
And set up a signal-fire in Beth Haccerem;
For disaster appears out of the north,
And great destruction.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:2 - I have likened the daughter of Zion
To a lovely and delicate woman.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:3 - The shepherds with their flocks shall come to her.
They shall pitch their tents against her all around.
Each one shall pasture in his own place.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:4 - “Prepare war against her;
Arise, and let us go up at noon.
Woe to us, for the day goes away,
For the shadows of the evening are lengthening.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:5 - Arise, and let us go by night,
And let us destroy her palaces.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:6 - For thus has the LORD of hosts said:

“Cut down trees,
And build a mound against Jerusalem.
This is the city to be punished.
She is full of oppression in her midst.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:7 - As a fountain wells up with water,
So she wells up with her wickedness.
Violence and plundering are heard in her.
Before Me continually are grief and wounds.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:8 - Be instructed, O Jerusalem,
Lest My soul depart from you;
Lest I make you desolate,
A land not inhabited.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:9 - Thus says the LORD of hosts:

“They shall thoroughly glean as a vine the remnant of Israel;
As a grape-gatherer, put your hand back into the branches.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:10 - To whom shall I speak and give warning,
That they may hear?
Indeed their ear is uncircumcised,
And they cannot give heed.
Behold, the word of the LORD is a reproach to them;
They have no delight in it.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:11 - Therefore I am full of the fury of the LORD.
I am weary of holding it in.
“I will pour it out on the children outside,
And on the assembly of young men together;
For even the husband shall be taken with the wife,
The aged with him who is full of days.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:12 - And their houses shall be turned over to others,
Fields and wives together;
For I will stretch out My hand
Against the inhabitants of the land,” says the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:13 - “Because from the least of them even to the greatest of them,
Everyone is given to covetousness;
And from the prophet even to the priest,
Everyone deals falsely.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:14 - They have also healed the hurt of My people slightly,
Saying, ‘Peace, peace!’
When there is no peace.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:15 - Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination?
No! They were not at all ashamed;
Nor did they know how to blush.
Therefore they shall fall among those who fall;
At the time I punish them,
They shall be cast down,” says the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:16 - Thus says the LORD:

“Stand in the ways and see,
And ask for the old paths, where the good way is,
And walk in it;
Then you will find rest for your souls.
But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:18 - Therefore hear, you nations,
And know, O congregation, what is among them.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:19 - Hear, O earth!
Behold, I will certainly bring calamity on this people—
The fruit of their thoughts,
Because they have not heeded My words
Nor My law, but rejected it.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:20 - For what purpose to Me
Comes frankincense from Sheba,
And sweet cane from a far country?
Your burnt offerings are not acceptable,
Nor your sacrifices sweet to Me.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:21 - Therefore thus says the LORD:

“Behold, I will lay stumbling blocks before this people,
And the fathers and the sons together shall fall on them.
The neighbor and his friend shall perish.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:22 - Thus says the LORD:

“Behold, a people comes from the north country,
And a great nation will be raised from the farthest parts of the earth.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:23 - They will lay hold on bow and spear;
They are cruel and have no mercy;
Their voice roars like the sea;
And they ride on horses,
As men of war set in array against you, O daughter of Zion.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:24 - We have heard the report of it;
Our hands grow feeble.
Anguish has taken hold of us,
Pain as of a woman in labor.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:25 - Do not go out into the field,
Nor walk by the way.
Because of the sword of the enemy,
Fear is on every side.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:26 - O daughter of my people,
Dress in sackcloth
And roll about in ashes!
Make mourning as for an only son, most bitter lamentation;
For the plunderer will suddenly come upon us.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:27 - “I have set you as an assayer and a fortress among My people,
That you may know and test their way.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:28 - They are all stubborn rebels, walking as slanderers.
They are bronze and iron,
They are all corrupters;

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:29 - The bellows blow fiercely,
The lead is consumed by the fire;
The smelter refines in vain,
For the wicked are not drawn off.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 6:30 - People will call them rejected silver,
Because the LORD has rejected them.”
