Jeremiah 9:1-6 (Holman Christian Standard)

View In My Bible
1 a If my head were water, my eyes a fountain of tears, I would weep day and nightb over the slain of my dearc people. 2 d If only I had a traveler's lodging place in the wilderness, I would abandon my people and depart from them, for they are all adulterers,e a solemn assembly of treacherous people.f 3 They bent their tongues [like] their bows; lies and not faithfulness prevail in the land, for they proceed from one evil to another, and they do not take Me into account.g [This is] the Lord's declaration.

Imminent Ruin and Exile

4 Everyone has to be on guard against his friend. Don't trust any brother, for every brother will certainly deceive, and every friend spread slander.h 5 Each one betrays his friend; no one tells the truth. They have taught their tongues to speak lies; they wear themselves out doing wrong. 6 You live in [a world] of deception.i In [their] deception they refuse to know Me.j [This is] the Lord's declaration.
