Jeremiah 6:13-19View Full Chapter
13“From the least to the greatest, all are greedy for gain; prophets and priests alike, all practice deceit.
14They dress the wound of my people as though it were not serious. ‘Peace, peace,’ they say, when there is no peace.
15Are 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 I punish them,” says the LORD .
16This is what the LORD says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. But you said, ‘We will not walk in it.’
17I appointed watchmen over you and said, ‘Listen to the sound of the trumpet!’ But you said, ‘We will not listen.’
18Therefore hear, you nations; you who are witnesses, observe what will happen to them.
19Hear, you earth: I am bringing disaster on this people, the fruit of their schemes, because they have not listened to my words and have rejected my law.
