Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:1 - 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 - Oh, that I had in the wilderness
A lodging place for travelers;
That I might leave my people,
And go from them!
For they are all adulterers,
An assembly of treacherous men.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:3 - “And like their bow they have bent their tongues for lies.
They are not valiant for the truth on the earth.
For they proceed from evil to evil,
And they do not know Me,” says the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:4 - “Everyone take heed to his neighbor,
And do not trust any brother;
For every brother will utterly supplant,
And every neighbor will walk with slanderers.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:5 - Everyone will deceive his neighbor,
And will not speak the truth;
They have taught their tongue to speak lies;
They weary themselves to commit iniquity.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:6 - Your dwelling place is in the midst of deceit;
Through deceit they refuse to know Me,” says the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:7 - Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts:

“Behold, I will refine them and try them;
For how shall I deal with the daughter of My people?

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:8 - Their tongue is an arrow shot out;
It speaks deceit;
One speaks peaceably to his neighbor with his mouth,
But in his heart he lies in wait.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:9 - Shall I not punish them for these things?” says the LORD.
“Shall I not avenge Myself on such a nation as this?”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:10 - I will take up a weeping and wailing for the mountains,
And for the dwelling places of the wilderness a lamentation,
Because they are burned up,
So that no one can pass through;
Nor can men hear the voice of the cattle.
Both the birds of the heavens and the beasts have fled;
They are gone.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:11 - “I will make Jerusalem a heap of ruins, a den of jackals.
I will make the cities of Judah desolate, without an inhabitant.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:12 - Who is the wise man who may understand this? And who is he to whom the mouth of the LORD has spoken, that he may declare it? Why does the land perish and burn up like a wilderness, so that no one can pass through?

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:13 - And 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 they have walked according to the dictates of their own hearts and after the Baals, which 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 water of gall to drink.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:16 - “I will scatter them also among the Gentiles, whom neither they nor their fathers have known. And I will send a sword after them until I have consumed 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 skillful 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 run with tears,
And our eyelids gush with water.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:19 - For a voice of wailing is heard from Zion:
‘How we are plundered!
We are greatly ashamed,
Because we have forsaken the land,
Because we have been cast out of our dwellings.’ ”

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

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:21 - For death has come through our windows,
Has entered our palaces,
To kill off the children— no longer to be outside!
And the young men— no longer on the streets!

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:22 - Speak, “Thus says the LORD:

‘Even the carcasses of men shall fall as refuse on the open field,
Like cuttings after the harvester,
And no one shall gather them.’ ”

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:23 - Thus says the LORD:

“Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,
Let not the mighty man glory in his might,
Nor let the rich man glory in his riches;

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:24 - But let him who glories glory in this,
That he understands and knows Me,
That I am the LORD, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth.
For in these I delight,” says the LORD.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:26 - “Egypt, Judah, Edom, the people of Ammon, Moab, and all who are in the farthest corners, who dwell in the wilderness. For all these nations are uncircumcised, and all the house of Israel are uncircumcised in the heart.”
