JER 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.
JER 9:17 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Consider ye, and call for the
mourning women, that they may come; and send for cunning women, that
they may come:
JER 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.
JER 9:19 For a voice of wailing is heard out of Zion, How are we
spoiled! we are greatly confounded, because we have forsaken the land,
because our dwellings have cast us out.
