Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:22 - Speak thus -- an affirmation of Jehovah, And fallen hath the carcase of man, As dung on the face of the field, And as a handful after the reaper, And there is none gathering.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:23 - Thus said Jehovah: Let not the wise boast himself in his wisdom, Nor let the mighty boast himself in his might, Let not the rich boast himself in his riches,

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:24 - But -- in this let the boaster boast himself, In understanding and knowing Me, For I am Jehovah, doing kindness, Judgment, and righteousness, in the earth, For in these I have delighted, An affirmation of Jehovah.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 9:25 - Lo, days are coming -- an affirmation of Jehovah, And I have laid a charge on all circumcised in the foreskin,
