Jeremiah 4:7-9 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
7 Up comes the lion from its lair,
the destroyer of nations has set out,
has left its place,
To turn your land into a desolation,
your cities into an uninhabited waste.
8 So put on sackcloth,
mourn and wail:
“The blazing anger of the Lord
has not turned away from us.”
9 In that day—oracle of the Lord—
The king will lose heart, and the princes;
the priests will be horrified,
and the prophets stunned.
