Jeremiah 4:23-27Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
23 I looked at the earth,
and it was formless and empty.
I looked to the heavens,
and their light was gone.
24 I looked at the mountains,
and they were quaking;
all the hills shook.
25 I looked, and no man was left;
all the birds of the sky had fled.
26 I looked, and the fertile field was a wilderness.
All its cities were torn down
because of the Lord
and His burning anger.
27 For this is what the Lord says:
The whole land will be a desolation,
but I will not finish it off.
