Both great and small will die in this land without burial. No lament will be made for them, nor will anyone cut himself or shave his head for them.
Jeremiah 16:6 In-Context
“They will die of deadly diseases. They will not be mourned or buried but will be like dung lying on the ground. They will perish by sword and famine, and their dead bodies will become food for the birds and the wild animals.”
For this is what the LORD says: “Do not enter a house where there is a funeral meal; do not go to mourn or show sympathy, because I have withdrawn my blessing, my love and my pity from this people,” declares the LORD.
“Both high and low will die in this land. They will not be buried or mourned, and no one will cut themselves or shave their head for the dead.
No one will offer food to comfort those who mourn for the dead—not even for a father or a mother—nor will anyone give them a drink to console them.
“And do not enter a house where there is feasting and sit down to eat and drink.
