19Woe is me for my hurt! my wound is grievous : but I said , Truly this is a grief, and I must bear it.
My tabernacle is spoiled , and all my cords are broken : my children are gone forth of me, and they are not: there is none to stretch forth my tent any more, and to set up my curtains.21
For the pastors are become brutish , and have not sought the LORD: therefore they shall not prosper , and all their flocks shall be scattered .
Behold, the noise of the bruit is come , and a greatcommotion out of the northcountry, to make the cities of Judahdesolate, and a den of dragons.23
O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.24
O LORD,correct me, but with judgment; not in thine anger, lest thou bring me to nothing .
Pour out thy fury upon the heathen that know thee not, and upon the families that call not on thy name: for they have eaten upJacob, and devoured him, and consumed him, and have made his habitationdesolate .
