Bible: Jeremiah 4:19-22
4:19 I said, 1
“Oh, the feeling in the pit of my stomach! 2
I writhe in anguish.
Oh, the pain in my heart! 3
My heart pounds within me.
I cannot keep silent.
For I hear the sound of the trumpet; 4
the sound of the battle cry pierces my soul! 5
4:20 I see 6 one destruction after another taking place,
so that the whole land lies in ruins.
I see our 7 tents suddenly destroyed,
4:21 “How long must I see the enemy’s battle flags
and hear the military signals of their bugles?” 10
“This will happen 12 because my people are foolish.
They do not know me.
They are like children who have no sense. 13
They have no understanding.
They are skilled at doing evil.
They do not know how to do good.”
