Bible: Jer 6:16-19

6:16 The Lord said to his people: 1 

“You are standing at the crossroads. So consider your path. 2 

Ask where the old, reliable paths 3  are.

Ask where the path is that leads to blessing 4  and follow it.

If you do, you will find rest for your souls.”

But they said, “We will not follow it!

6:17 The Lord said, 5 

“I appointed prophets as watchmen to warn you, 6  saying:

‘Pay attention to the warning sound of the trumpet!’” 7 

But they said, “We will not pay attention!

6:18 So the Lord said, 8 

“Hear, you nations!

Be witnesses and take note of what will happen to these people. 9 

6:19 Hear this, you peoples of the earth: 10 

‘Take note! 11  I am about to bring disaster on these people.

It will come as punishment for their scheming. 12 

For they have paid no attention to what I have said, 13 

and they have rejected my law.
