Jeremiah 6:1-6

YLT 1 Strengthen yourselves, sons of Benjamin, From the midst of Jerusalem, And in Tekoa blow ye a trumpet, And over Beth-Haccerem lift ye up a flame, For evil hath been seen from the north, And great destruction. NIV 1 "Flee for safety, people of Benjamin! Flee from Jerusalem! Sound the trumpet in Tekoa! Raise the signal over Beth Hakkerem! For disaster looms out of the north, even terrible destruction. YLT 2 The comely and the delicate one I have cut off, The daughter of Zion. NIV 2 I will destroy the Daughter of Zion, so beautiful and delicate. YLT 3 Unto her come do shepherds and their droves, They have stricken tents by her round about, They have fed each [in] his own station. NIV 3 Shepherds with their flocks will come against her; they will pitch their tents around her, each tending his own portion." YLT 4 Sanctify ye against her the battle, Rise, and we go up at noon. Wo to us, for turned hath the day, For stretched out are the shades of evening, NIV 4 "Prepare for battle against her! Arise, let us attack at noon! But, alas, the daylight is fading, and the shadows of evening grow long. YLT 5 `Rise, and we go up by night, And we destroy her palaces.' NIV 5 So arise, let us attack at night and destroy her fortresses!" YLT 6 For thus said Jehovah of Hosts: Cut down her wood, And pour out against Jerusalem a mount, She [is] the city to be inspected, Wholly -- she is oppression in her midst. NIV 6 This is what the LORD Almighty says: "Cut down the trees and build siege ramps against Jerusalem. This city must be punished; it is filled with oppression.
