"For thus says the LORD: 1Do not enter the house of mourning, or go to lament or grieve for them, for I have taken away my peace from this people, my steadfast love and mercy, declares the LORD.
Both great and small shall die in this land. 2They shall not be buried, and no one shall lament for them or 3cut himself 4or make himself bald for them.
No one shall 5break bread for the mourner, to comfort him for the dead, nor shall anyone give him the cup of consolation to drink for his father or his mother.
You shall not go into the house of feasting to sit with them, to eat and drink.
For thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: 6Behold, I will silence in this place, before your eyes and in your days, the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride.
