The Book of Jeremiah Chapter 14 – New King James Version (NKJV) – Audio Bible

Chapter 14. The word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah concerning the droughts Judah Mourns and her Gates languish They Mourn for the land and the Cry of Jerusalem has gone up Their nobles have sent their Lads for Water They went to the systems and found no Water They returned with their vessels empty They were ashamed and confounded and Covered their heads Because the ground is parched for there Was no rain in the land the plowmen were Ashamed they covered their heads Yes the deer also gave birth in the Field But left because there was no grass And the wild donkeys stood in the Desolate Heights They sniffed at the wind like jackals Their eyes failed because there was no Grass Oh Lord though our iniquities testify Against us do it for your name's sake For our backslidings are many We have sinned against you Oh the hope of Israel His savior in time of trouble Why should you be like a stranger in the Land and like a traveler who turns aside To tarry for a night Why should you be like a man astonished

Like a mighty one who cannot save Yet You O Lord are in our midst and we Are called by your name Do not leave us Thus says the Lord to this people Thus they have loved to wander They have not restrained their feet Therefore the Lord does not accept them He will remember their iniquity now and Punish their sins Then the Lord said to me Do not pray for this people for their Good When they fast I will not hear their cry And when they offer burnt offering and Grain offering I will not accept them But I will consume them by the sword by The famine and by the pestilence Then I said ah Lord God behold the Prophets say to them you shall not see The sword nor shall you have famine but I will give you assured peace in this Place And the Lord said to me The prophets prophesy lies in my name I have not sent them commanded them nor Spoken to them They prophesy to you a false Vision Divination A worthless thing and the deceit of Their heart Therefore thus says the Lord concerning The prophets who prophesy in my name Whom I did not send and who say sword

And famine shall not be in this land By sword and famine those prophets shall Be consumed And the people to whom they prophesy Shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the Sword They will have no one to bury them Them nor their wives their sons nor Their daughters For I will pour their wickedness on them Therefore you shall say this word to Them Let my eyes flow with tears night and Day and let them not cease For the virgin daughter of my people has Been broken with a mighty stroke with a Very severe blow If I go out to the field then behold Those slain with the sword And if I enter the city then behold Those sick from famine Yes both prophet and priest go about in A land they do not know Have you utterly rejected Judah Has your soul loathed Zion Why have you stricken us so that there Is no healing for us We looked for peace but there was no Good And for the time of healing and there Was trouble We acknowledge oh Lord our wickedness And the iniquity of our fathers for we

Have sinned against you Do not abhor us for your name's sake Do not disgrace the Throne of your glory Remember Do not break your Covenant with us Are there any among the idols of the Nations that can cause rain Or can the heavens give showers Are you not he O Lord our God Therefore we will wait for you Since you have made all these
