Jeremiah 20:14-18

View Full Chapter

14Cursed be the day I was born! May the day my mother bore me not be blessed!

15Cursed be the man who brought my father the news, who made him very glad, saying, “A child is born to you—a son!”

16May that man be like the towns the LORD overthrew without pity. May he hear wailing in the morning, a battle cry at noon.

17For he did not kill me in the womb, with my mother as my grave, her womb enlarged forever. 18Why did I ever come out of the womb to see trouble and sorrow and to end my days in shame?
