The Enemy of the North
Today's Passage: Jeremiah 6:22-30
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you for insight.
Cause and Effect
22. This is what the LORD says:
"Look! A great army coming from the north!
A great nation is rising against you from far-off lands.
23. They are armed with bows and spears.
They are cruel and show no mercy.
They sound like a roaring sea as they ride forward on horses.
They are coming in battle formation,
planning to destroy you, beautiful Jerusalem."
24. We have heard reports about the enemy,
and we wring our hands in fright.
Pangs of anguish have gripped us,
like those of a woman in labor.
25. Don't go out to the fields!
Don't travel on the roads!
26. Oh, my people, dress yourselves in burlap and sit among the ashes.
Mourn and weep bitterly, as for the loss of an only son.
For suddenly the destroying armies will be upon you!
27. "Jeremiah, I have made you a tester of metals,
that you may determine the quality of my people.
28. They are the worst kind of rebel, full of slander.
They are as hard as bronze and iron,
and they lead others into corruption.
29. The bellows fiercely fan the flames to burn out the corruption.
But it does not purify them, for the wickedness remains.
30. I will label them 'Rejected Silver, ' for I, the LORD, am discarding them."
Jeremiah 6:22-30 NLT
