Jeremiah 8


8:1 At that time, saith the LORD, they shall bring the bones of
 the kings of Judah, and the bones of his princes, and the bones
 of the priests, and the bones of the prophets, and the bones of
 the inhabitants of Jerusalem, out of their graves:
8:2 And they shall spread them before the sun, and the moon, and
 all the host of heaven, whom they have loved, and whom they
 have served, and after whom they have walked, and whom they
 have sought, and whom they have worshiped: they shall not be
 gathered, nor be buried; they shall be for dung upon the face
 of the earth.
8:3 And death shall be chosen rather than life by all the
 residue of them that remain of this evil family, who remain in
 all the places whither I have driven them, saith the LORD of
 hosts.
8:4 Moreover, thou shalt say to them, Thus saith the LORD; Shall
 they fall, and not arise? shall he turn away, and not return?
8:5 Why [then] hath this people of Jerusalem slidden back by a
 perpetual backsliding? they hold fast deceit, they refuse to
 return.
8:6 I hearkened and heard, [but] they spoke not aright: no man
 repented of his wickedness, saying, What have I done? every one
 turned to his course, as the horse rusheth to the battle.
8:7 Yes, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times;
 and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time
 of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the
 LORD.
8:8 How do ye say, We [are] wise, and the law of the LORD [is]
 with us? Lo, certainly in vain he hath made [it]; the pen of
 the scribes [is] in vain.
8:9 The wise [men] are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo,
 they have rejected the word of the LORD; and what wisdom [is]
 in them?
8:10 Therefore will I give their wives to others, [and] their
 fields to them that shall inherit [them]: for every one from
 the least even to the greatest is given to covetousness, from
 the prophet even to the priest every one dealeth falsely.
8:11 For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people
 slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when [there is] no peace.
8:12 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? no,
 they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush:
 therefore shall they fall among them that fall: in the time of
 their visitation they shall be cast down, saith the LORD.
8:13 I will surely consume them, saith the LORD: [there shall
 be] no grapes on the vine, nor figs on the fig-tree, and the
 leaf shall fade; and [the things that] I have given to them
 shall pass away from them.
8:14 Why do we sit still? assemble yourselves, and let us enter
 into the fortified cities, and let us be silent there: for the
 LORD our God hath put us to silence, and given us water of gall
 to drink, because we have sinned against the LORD.
8:15 We looked for peace, but no good [came]; [and] for a time
 of health, and behold, trouble!
8:16 The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan: the whole
 land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones;
 for they have come, and have devoured the land, and all that is
 in it; the city, and those that dwell therein.
8:17 For behold, I will send serpents, cockatrices, among you,
 which [will] not [be] charmed, and they shall bite you, saith
 the LORD.
8:18 [When] I would comfort myself against sorrow, my heart [is]
 faint in me.
8:19 Behold the voice of the cry of the daughter of my people
 because of them that dwell in a distant country: [Is] not the
 LORD in Zion? [is] not her king in her? Why have they provoked
 me to anger with their graven images, [and] with strange
 vanities?
8:20 The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not
 saved.
8:21 For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt; I am
 black; astonishment hath taken hold on me.
8:22 [Is there] no balm in Gilead: [is there] no physician
 there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people
 recovered.
