“Give this message to the people of Judah: Tell everyone in the city of Jerusalem: ‘Blow the trumpet all over the country.’ Shout out loud and say, ‘Come together! Let us all escape to the strong cities for protection.’
“·Announce this message [Declare; Shout; L Let it be heard] in Judah and ·say [proclaim] it in Jerusalem: ‘Blow the ·trumpet [ram’s horn] throughout the ·country [land]!’ Shout out loud and say, ‘·Come [L Gather] together! Let’s all ·escape [L go] to the ·strong, walled [fortified] cities!’
“Sound the alarm in Judah, broadcast the news in Jerusalem. Say, ‘Blow the ram’s horn trumpet through the land!’ Shout out—a bullhorn bellow!— ‘Close ranks! Run for your lives to the shelters!’ Send up a flare warning Zion: ‘Not a minute to lose! Don’t sit on your hands!’ Disaster’s descending from the north. I set it off! When it lands, it will shake the foundations. Invaders have pounced like a lion from its cover, ready to rip nations to shreds, Leaving your land in wrack and ruin, your cities in rubble, abandoned. Dress in funereal black. Weep and wail, For God’s sledgehammer anger has slammed into us head-on.
Eternal One(to Jeremiah): Cry out to those in Jerusalem. Proclaim to all of Judah. Let the trumpets blare throughout the land! Say to the people, “Gather everyone from the outlying villages, and run toward the fortified cities.”
