Jeremiah 4:7-9 New International Version - UK (NIVUK)
7 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
8 So put on sackcloth,
lament and wail,
for the fierce anger of the Lord
has not turned away from us.
9 ‘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.’
