Jeremiah 4:7-9 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)
7 A lion has gone up from its thicket,
a destroyer of nations has set out;
he has gone out from his place
to make your land a waste;
your cities will be ruins
8 Because of this put on sackcloth,
lament and wail:
‘The fierce anger of the Lord
has not turned away from us.’
9 On that day, says the Lord, courage shall fail the king and the officials; the priests shall be appalled and the prophets astounded.
