Jeremiah 14:7-10Contemporary English Version (CEV)
The Lord’s People Pray
7 Our terrible sins may demand that we be punished. But if you rescue us, Lord, everyone will see how great you are. 8 You’re our only hope; you alone can save us now. You help us one day, but you’re gone the next. 9 Did this disaster take you by surprise? Are you a warrior with your hands tied? You have chosen us, and your temple is here. Don’t abandon us!
The Lord’s Answer
10 My people, you love to wander away; you don’t even try to stay close to me. So now I will reject you and punish you for your sins. I, the Lord, have spoken.
Jeremiah 14:19-22Contemporary English Version (CEV)
Jeremiah Prays to the Lord
19 Have you rejected Judah, Lord? Do you hate Jerusalem? Why did you strike down Judah with a fatal wound? We had hoped for peace and a time of healing, but all we got was terror. 20 We and our ancestors are guilty of rebelling against you. 21 If you save us, it will show how great you are. Don’t let our enemies disgrace your temple, your beautiful throne. Don’t forget that you promised to rescue us. 22 Idols can’t send rain, and showers don’t fall by themselves. Only you control the rain, so we put our trust in you, the Lord our God.
