Jeremiah 8:14-22 (King James Version)

View In My Bible
14 Why do we sit still ? assemble yourselves, and let us enter into the defenced cities, and let us be silent there: for the LORD our God hath put us to silence , and given us water of galla to drink , because we have sinned against the LORD. 15 We looked for peace, but no good came; and for a time of health, and behold trouble! 16 The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan: the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they are come , and have devoured the land, and allb that is in it; the city, and those that dwell therein. 17 For, behold, I will send serpents, cockatrices, among you, which will not be charmed, and they shall bite you, saith the LORD. 18 When I would comfort myself against sorrow, my heart is faint in me. 19 Behold the voice of the cry of the daughter of my people because of them that dwell in a far country: Is not the LORD in Zion? is not her king in her? Why have they provoked me to anger with their graven images, and with strange vanities? 20 The harvest is past , the summer is ended , and we are not saved . 21 For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt ; I am black ; astonishment hath taken hold on me. 22 Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered ?
