Jeremiah 9


9:1 Oh that my head were waters, and my eyes a fountain of
 tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the
 daughter of my people!
9:2 Oh that I had in the wilderness a lodging-place of
 way-faring men; that I might leave my people, and go from them!
 for they [are] all adulterers, an assembly of treacherous men.
9:3 And they bend their tongues [like] their bow [for] lies: but
 they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they
 proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the
 LORD.
9:4 Take ye heed every one of his neighbor, and trust ye not in
 any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every
 neighbor will walk with slanders.
9:5 And they will deceive every one his neighbor, and will not
 speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies,
 [and] weary themselves to commit iniquity.
9:6 Thy habitation [is] in the midst of deceit; through deceit
 they refuse to know me, saith the LORD.
9:7 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, I will melt
 them, and try them; for how shall I do for the daughter of my
 people?
9:8 Their tongue [is as] an arrow shot out; it speaketh deceit:
 [one] speaketh peaceably to his neighbor with his mouth, but in
 heart he layeth his wait.
9:9 Shall I not visit them for these [things]? saith the LORD:
 shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?
9:10 For the mountains will I take up a weeping and wailing, and
 for the habitations of the wilderness a lamentation, because
 they are burned up, so that none can pass through [them];
 neither can [men] hear the voice of the cattle; both the fowl
 of the heavens and the beast have fled; they are gone.
9:11 And I will make Jerusalem heaps, [and] a den of dragons;
 and I will make the cities of Judah desolate, without an
 inhabitant.
9:12 Who [is] the wise man that may understand this? and [who is
 he] to whom the mouth of the LORD hath spoken, that he may
 declare it, for what the land perisheth [and] is burned up like
 a wilderness, that none passeth through?
9:13 And the LORD saith, Because they have forsaken my law which
 I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice, neither walked
 therein;
9:14 But have walked after the imagination of their own heart,
 and after Baalim, which their fathers taught them:
9:15 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel;
 Behold, I will feed them, [even] this people, with wormwood,
 and give them water of gall to drink.
9:16 I will scatter them also among the heathen, whom neither
 they nor their fathers have known: and I will send a sword
 after them, till I have consumed them.
9:17 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Consider ye, and call for the
 mourning women, that they may come; and send for skillful
 [women], that they may come:
9:18 And let them make haste, and take up a wailing for us, that
 our eyes may run down with tears, and our eyelids gush out with
 waters.
9:19 For a voice of wailing is heard out of Zion, How are we
 laid waste! we are greatly confounded, because we have forsaken
 the land, because our dwellings have cast [us] out.
9:20 Yet hear the word of the LORD, O ye women, and let your ear
 receive the word of his mouth, and teach your daughters
 wailing, and every one her neighbor lamentation.
9:21 For death hath come up into our windows, [and] hath entered
 into our palaces, to cut off the children from without, [and]
 the young men from the streets.
9:22 Speak, Thus saith the LORD, Even the carcasses of men shall
 fall as dung upon the open field, and as the handful after the
 harvest-man, and none shall gather [them].
9:23 Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise [man] glory in his
 wisdom, neither let the mighty [man] glory in his might, let
 not the rich [man] glory in his riches:
9:24 But let him that glorieth, glory in this, that he
 understandeth and knoweth me, that I [am] the LORD who exercise
 loving-kindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for
 in these [things] I delight, saith the LORD.
9:25 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will punish
 all [them who are] circumcised with the uncircumcised;
9:26 Egypt, and Judah, and Edom, and the children of Ammon, and
 Moab, and all [that are] in the utmost corners, that dwell in
 the wilderness: for all [these] nations [are] uncircumcised,
 and all the house of Israel [are] uncircumcised in the heart.
