Jeremiah 9:1; Jeremiah 9:10; Jeremiah 9:20
I wish my head were a well of water, and my eyes a fountain of tears, so that I could cry day and night for my people who have been killed.
I said, "I will mourn for the mountains and weep for the pastures, because they have dried up, and no one travels through them. The sound of livestock is no longer heard; birds and wild animals have fled and gone."
I said, "Listen to the Lord, you women, and pay attention to his words. Teach your daughters how to mourn, and your friends how to sing a funeral song.
