Jeremiah 13:19-21 The Voice (VOICE)
19 The cities in the Negev have already shut their gates.
There will be no one to open them.
The people of Judah will be taken captive,
all of them carried away into exile.
20 (to Jerusalem) Now look to the north and see who is marching toward you.
Where is the beautiful flock that was entrusted to you?
21 What will you say when He appoints your so-called allies,
the very ones you trained, to rule over you?
Will not the pain stab at you
as it does a woman in childbirth?
