Jeremiah 4:7-9 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
7 A lion has come out of its lair.
A destroyer of nations has set out.
He has left his place to destroy your land.
Your cities will be ruined, and no one will live in them.
8 So put on sackcloth, mourn, and cry
because the Lord’s burning anger hasn’t turned away from us.
9 “When that day comes,” declares the Lord,
“the king and the leaders will lose their courage.
The priests will be stunned.
The prophets will be amazed and astonished.”
