Jeremiah 22:22-24 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

22 The wind will take charge of[a] all your shepherds,
and your lovers[b] will go into captivity.
Then you will be ashamed and humiliated
because of all your evil.
23 You residents of Lebanon,
nestled among the cedars,
how you will groan[c] when labor pains come on you,
agony like a woman in labor.

Jeremiah 22:22-24 New International Version (NIV)

22 The wind will drive all your shepherds away,
    and your allies will go into exile.
Then you will be ashamed and disgraced
    because of all your wickedness.
23 You who live in ‘Lebanon,[a]
    who are nestled in cedar buildings,
how you will groan when pangs come upon you,
    pain like that of a woman in labor!

24 “As surely as I live,” declares the Lord, “even if you, Jehoiachin[b] son of Jehoiakim king of Judah, were a signet ring on my right hand, I would still pull you off.
