Jeremiah 6:16-17 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

16     Thus says the Lord:
Stand by the earliest roads,
    ask the pathways of old,[a]
“Which is the way to good?” and walk it;
    thus you will find rest for yourselves.
    But they said, “We will not walk it.”
17 I raised up watchmen[b] for them:
    “Pay attention to the sound of the trumpet!”
    But they said, “We will not pay attention!”


  1. 6:16 Pathways of old: history and the lessons to be learned from it.
  2. 6:17 Watchmen: the prophets who, like Jeremiah, had upheld God’s moral law.
