Jeremiah 4:23-26

MSG 23 I looked at the earth - it was back to pre-Genesis chaos and emptiness. I looked at the skies, and not a star to be seen. NIV 23 I looked at the earth, and it was formless and empty; and at the heavens, and their light was gone. MSG 24 I looked at the mountains - they were trembling like aspen leaves, And all the hills rocking back and forth in the wind. NIV 24 I looked at the mountains, and they were quaking; all the hills were swaying. MSG 25 I looked - what's this! Not a man or woman in sight, and not a bird to be seen in the skies. NIV 25 I looked, and there were no people; every bird in the sky had flown away. MSG 26 I looked - this can't be! Every garden and orchard shriveled up. All the towns were ghost towns. And all this because of God, because of the blazing anger of God. NIV 26 I looked, and the fruitful land was a desert; all its towns lay in ruins before the LORD, before his fierce anger.
