1599 Geneva Bible
21 I spake unto thee when thou wast in prosperity: but thou saidest, I will not hear, this hath been thy manner from thy youth, that thou wouldest not obey my voice.
22 The wind shall feed all thy pastors, [a]and thy lovers shall go into captivity: and then shalt thou be ashamed and confounded of all thy wickedness.
23 Thou that dwellest in Lebanon, and makest thy nest in the [b]cedars, how beautiful shalt thou be when sorrows come upon thee, as the sorrow of a woman in travail?Read full chapter
New International Version
21 I warned you when you felt secure,(A)
but you said, ‘I will not listen!’
This has been your way from your youth;(B)
you have not obeyed(C) me.
22 The wind(D) will drive all your shepherds(E) away,
and your allies(F) will go into exile.
Then you will be ashamed and disgraced(G)
because of all your wickedness.
23 You who live in ‘Lebanon,[a](H)’
who are nestled in cedar buildings,
how you will groan when pangs come upon you,
pain(I) like that of a woman in labor!
- Jeremiah 22:23 That is, the palace in Jerusalem (see 1 Kings 7:2)
