Bible: Jeremiah 9:12-13

9:12 I said, 1 

“Who is wise enough to understand why this has happened? 2 

Who has a word from the Lord that can explain it? 3 

Why does the land lie in ruins?

Why is it as scorched as a desert through which no one travels?

9:13 The Lord answered, “This has happened because these people have rejected my laws which I gave them. They have not obeyed me or followed those laws. 4
