Jeremiah 14:1-6 MSG

1 God's Message that came to Jeremiah regarding the drought:
2 "Judah weeps, her cities mourn. The people fall to the ground, moaning, while sounds of Jerusalem's sobs rise up, up.
3 The rich people sent their servants for water. They went to the cisterns, but the cisterns were dry. They came back with empty buckets, wringing their hands, shaking their heads.
4 All the farm work has stopped. Not a drop of rain has fallen. The farmers don't know what to do. They wring their hands, they shake their heads.
5 Even the doe abandons her fawn in the field because there is no grass -
6 Eyes glazed over, on her last legs, nothing but skin and bones."
