Jeremiah 6:1-6 NCV

1 "Run for your lives, people of Benjamin! Run away from Jerusalem! Disaster is coming from the north; terrible destruction is coming to you.
2 Jerusalem, I will destroy you, you who are fragile and gentle.
3 Shepherds with their flocks will come against Jerusalem. They will set up their tents all around her, each shepherd taking care of his own section."
4 They say, "Get ready to fight against Jerusalem! But it is already getting late; the evening shadows are growing long.
5 So get up! We will attack at night.
6 This is what the Lord All-Powerful says: "Cut down the trees around Jerusalem, and build an attack ramp to the top of its walls. This city must be punished. Inside it is nothing but slavery.
