Bible: Jer 8:21-9:1

8:21 My heart is crushed because my dear people 1  are being crushed. 2 

I go about crying and grieving. I am overwhelmed with dismay. 3 

8:22 There is still medicinal ointment 4  available in Gilead!

There is still a physician there! 5 

Why then have my dear people 6 

not been restored to health? 7 

9:1 8  I wish that my head were a well full of water 9 

and my eyes were a fountain full of tears!

If they were, I could cry day and night

for those of my dear people 10  who have been killed.
