CJB 3 All the survivors of this evil family who remain wherever I have driven them will prefer death to life," says ADONAI-Tzva'ot. NIV 3 Wherever I banish them, all the survivors of this evil nation will prefer death to life, declares the LORD Almighty.’ CJB 4 "You are to tell them that ADONAI says: 'If a person falls, doesn't he get up again?

No one repents of his wickedness, saying, "What have I done!" Each runs off in his own direction, like a horse plunging headlong into battle.

None of them repent of their wickedness, saying, “What have I done?” Each pursues their own course like a horse charging into battle.

NIV 8 “ ‘How can you say, “We are wise, for we have the law of the LORD,” when actually the lying pen of the scribes has handled it falsely? CJB 9 The wise are put to shame, alarmed, entrapped. They have rejected the word of ADONAI, so what wisdom do they have? NIV 9 The wise will be put to shame; they will be dismayed and trapped. Since they have rejected the word of the LORD, what kind of wisdom do they have?

CJB 11 they dress the wound of the daughter of my people, but only superficially, saying, "There is perfect shalom," when there is no shalom. NIV 11 They dress the wound of my people as though it were not serious. “Peace, peace,” they say, when there is no peace. CJB 12 They should be ashamed of their detestable deeds, but they are not ashamed at all, they don't know how to blush. So when others fall, they too will fall; when I punish them, they will stumble,' says ADONAI. NIV 12 Are they ashamed of their detestable conduct? No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush. So they will fall among the fallen; they will be brought down when they are punished, says the LORD. CJB 13 "'I will put an end to them,' says ADONAI. 'There are no grapes on the vine, and no figs on the fig tree; the leaf has withered; and what I have given them will pass from their possession.'" NIV 13 “ ‘I will take away their harvest, declares the LORD. There will be no grapes on the vine. There will be no figs on the tree, and their leaves will wither. What I have given them will be taken from them. ’ ” CJB 14 "Why are we sitting still? Assemble! Let's enter the fortified cities and meet our doom there! For ADONAI our God has doomed us; he has given us bitter water to drink, because we have sinned against ADONAI. NIV 14 Why are we sitting here? Gather together! Let us flee to the fortified cities and perish there! For the LORD our God has doomed us to perish and given us poisoned water to drink, because we have sinned against him. CJB 15 When we look for peace, nothing good comes; when we seek a time of healing, instead there is terror." NIV 15 We hoped for peace but no good has come, for a time of healing but there is only terror. CJB 16 From Dan can be heard the snorting of his horses; when his stallions neigh, the whole land trembles. For they come devouring the land and all in it, the city and those who dwell there. NIV 16 The snorting of the enemy’s horses is heard from Dan; at the neighing of their stallions the whole land trembles. They have come to devour the land and everything in it, the city and all who live there. CJB 17 "Yes, now I am sending snakes among you, vipers that no one can charm, and they will bite you," says ADONAI. NIV 17 “See, I will send venomous snakes among you, vipers that cannot be charmed, and they will bite you,” declares the LORD. CJB 18 My grief has no cure, I am sick at heart. NIV 18 You who are my Comforter in sorrow, my heart is faint within me. CJB 19 Listen to my people's cry of distress out of a distant land: "Is ADONAI no longer in Tziyon? Is her king no longer there?" "Why do they provoke me with their idols and their futile foreign gods?" NIV 19 Listen to the cry of my people from a land far away: “Is the LORD not in Zion? Is her King no longer there?” “Why have they aroused my anger with their images, with their worthless foreign idols?” CJB 20 "The harvest has passed, the summer is over, and still we are not saved." NIV 20 “The harvest is past, the summer has ended, and we are not saved.” CJB 21 The daughter of my people is broken, and it's tearing me to pieces; everything looks dark to me, horror seizes me. NIV 21 Since my people are crushed, I am crushed; I mourn, and horror grips me. CJB 22 Has Gil'ad exhausted its healing resin? Is no physician there? If there is, then why is the daughter of my people so slow to recover her health? NIV 22 Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then is there no healing for the wound of my people?
