Asking Questions about the Passage
Allowing this Passage to Change My Life.
23. I looked at the earth, and it was empty and formless. I looked at the heavens, and there was no light.
24. I looked at the mountains and hills, and they trembled and shook.
25. I looked, and all the people were gone. All the birds of the sky had flown away.
26. I looked, and the fertile fields had become a wilderness. The towns lay in ruins, crushed by the LORD'S fierce anger.
27. This is what the LORD says: "The whole land will be ruined, but I will not destroy it completely.
28. The earth will mourn and the heavens will be draped in black because of my decree against my people. I have made up my mind and will not change it."
29. At the noise of charioteers and archers, the people flee in terror. They hide in the bushes and run for the mountains. All the towns have been abandoned — not a person remains!
30. What are you doing, you who have been plundered ? Why do you dress up in beautiful clothing and put on gold jewelry? Why do you brighten your eyes with mascara? Your primping will do you no good! The allies who were your lovers despise you and seek to kill you.
31. I hear a cry, like that of a woman in labor, the groans of a woman giving birth to her first child. It is beautiful Jerusalem gasping for breath and crying out, "Help! I'm being murdered!"
Jeremiah 4:23-31 NLT
