Jeremiah 4:17-19 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

17 Like watchers in the fields they surround her,
    for she has rebelled against me—oracle of the Lord.
18 Your conduct, your deeds, have done this to you;
    how bitter is this evil of yours,
    how it reaches to your very heart!
19 My body! my body! how I writhe![a]
    The walls of my heart!
My heart beats wildly,
    I cannot be still;
For I myself have heard the blast of the horn,
    the battle cry.
