Jeremiah 13:11; Jeremiah 13:20; Jeremiah 33:9; Jeremiah 48:17
For as the girdle cleaveth to the loins of a man, so have I caused to cleave unto me the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah, saith the LORD; that they might be unto me for a people, and for a name, and for a praise, and for a glory: but they would not hear .
Lift up your eyes, and behold them that come from the north: where is the flock that was given thee, thy beautiful flock?
And it shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and an honour before all the nations of the earth, which shall hear all the good that I do unto them: and they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and for all the prosperity that I procure unto it.
All ye that are about him, bemoan him; and all ye that know his name, say , How is the strong staff broken , and the beautiful rod!
