Jeremiah 4:7-9 New International Reader's Version (NIRV)

Lions have come out of their dens.
    Those who destroy nations have begun to march out.
They have left their place
    to destroy your land completely.
Your towns will be broken to pieces.
    No one will live in them.
So put on the clothes of sadness.
    Mourn and weep over what has happened.
The Lord hasn’t turned
    his great anger away from us.

“A dark day is coming,” announces the Lord.
    “The king and his officials will lose hope.
The priests will be shocked.
    And the prophets will be terrified.”

Jeremiah 4:7-9 New International Version (NIV)

A lion has come out of his lair;
    a destroyer of nations has set out.
He has left his place
    to lay waste your land.
Your towns will lie in ruins
    without inhabitant.
So put on sackcloth,
    lament and wail,
for the fierce anger of the Lord
    has not turned away from us.

“In that day,” declares the Lord,
    “the king and the officials will lose heart,
the priests will be horrified,
    and the prophets will be appalled.”
