Jeremiah 8
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1In that time, says LORD JEHOVAH, they shall bring out the bones of Kings of Judea and the bones of their Princes, and the bones of their Priests and the bones of their Prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Jerusalem from their graves 2And they shall spread them out to the sun and to the moon and to all the hosts of Heaven which they loved, and they served them, and they went after them, and they inquired of them, and they worshiped them. They shall not be gathered and they shall not be buried, but they shall be like a dung heap on the face of the ground 3And all the rest from this evil generation who were left will choose death for themselves, rather than life, in all the countries where I led them, says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts

4And you shall say to them: “Thus says LORD JEHOVAH: ‘They shall fall and they shall not arise, and if they would return to God, they will not return to God

5Why does this backsliding, shameless people return to Jerusalem? They held fast to deceit and they chose not to return to God

6I turned my ear and I heard and they were not speaking justly, because none would be sorry for his evil and say: ‘What have I done?’ They all walk in their will, like a horse that leads into battle

7Also a stork in the sky knows her time, and a pigeon and a crane and a swallow keep the time of LORD JEHOVAH, and my people have not known the judgment of LORD JEHOVAH

8How do you say: ‘We are wise and the Law of LORD JEHOVAH is with us?’ Truly the lying pen of the Scribes is made for falsehood!

9The wise men are ashamed and they are broken, and they are made prisoners, because they have rejected the word of LORD JEHOVAH, and wisdom is not in them

10Because of this, I shall give their wives to others, and their fields for plunder, because from the least of them and unto the greatest of them, they all commit double treachery, and from the lying Prophets and unto to the Priests, they all work falsehood

11And they heal the brokenness of the daughter of my people with mockery, and they were saying, “Peace! Peace!”, and there is no peace

12They were ashamed because they have performed defilement, and the shameful are shameless, and they do not know how to be rebuked. Because of this, they will fall with the fallen ones, and at the time that they are visited, they shall be overthrown, says LORD JEHOVAH

13Consuming, I shall consume them, says LORD JEHOVAH! There are no grapes on the vine and no figs in the fig tree, and the leaves have fallen, and I have given them and they have removed them

14And they shall say: “Why are we sitting? Be assembled and we shall enter the fortified cities, and we shall be silent there, because LORD JEHOVAH our God has silenced us, and he has made us drink bitter waters, for we have sinned against LORD JEHOVAH!

15We wait for peace and there is no good, and for a time of healing, and there was distress for us

16From Dan there was heard the neighing of its horses. All the land shook from the sound of the speaking of his mighty men, and they came and they consumed the land and its fullness, the city and her inhabitants

17Because, behold, I am sending serpents to you, dragons that are not susceptible to charming, and they shall bite you, says LORD JEHOVAH

18I am worn out in my grief, and my heart grieves against me

19Behold, the sound of the cry of the daughter of my people from a distant land, who say: “LORD JEHOVAH is not in Zion, nor is her King in it”, because they angered me with their carvings and with foreign idols

20Harvest has passed and the vintage has ended, and we have not been saved!

21For the ruin of the daughter of my people I am saddened and astonishment has gripped me

22Is there no wax in Galad, or is there no Physician there? Why has the healing of the daughter of my people not resulted?
