14:1 The word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] that came to Jeremiah [H3414] concerning [H1697] the dearth [H1226] .(the dearth: Heb. the words of the dearths, or, restraints)
14:2 Judah [H3063] mourneth [H56] , and the gates [H8179] thereof languish [H535] ; they are black [H6937] unto the ground [H776] ; and the cry [H6682] of Jerusalem [H3389] is gone up [H5927] .
14:3 And their nobles [H117] have sent [H7971] their little ones [H6810] to the waters [H4325] : they came [H935] to the pits [H1356] [H1360] , [and] found [H4672] no water [H4325] ; they returned [H7725] with their vessels [H3627] empty [H7387] ; they were ashamed [H954] and confounded [H3637] , and covered [H2645] their heads [H7218] .
14:4 Because the ground [H127] is chapt [H2865] , for there was no rain [H1653] in the earth [H776] , the plowmen [H406] were ashamed [H954] , they covered [H2645] their heads [H7218] .
14:5 Yea, the hind [H365] also calved [H3205] in the field [H7704] , and forsook [H5800] [it], because there was no grass [H1877] .
14:6 And the wild asses [H6501] did stand [H5975] in the high places [H8205] , they snuffed up [H7602] the wind [H7307] like dragons [H8577] ; their eyes [H5869] did fail [H3615] , because [there was] no grass [H6212] .
14:7 O LORD [H3068] , though our iniquities [H5771] testify [H6030] against us, do [H6213] thou [it] for thy name's [H8034] sake: for our backslidings [H4878] are many [H7231] ; we have sinned [H2398] against thee.
14:8 O the hope [H4723] of Israel [H3478] , the saviour [H3467] thereof in time [H6256] of trouble [H6869] , why shouldest thou be as a stranger [H1616] in the land [H776] , and as a wayfaring man [H732] [that] turneth aside [H5186] to tarry for a night [H3885] ?
14:9 Why shouldest thou be as a man [H376] astonied [H1724] , as a mighty man [H1368] [that] cannot [H3201] save [H3467] ? yet thou, O LORD [H3068] , [art] in the midst [H7130] of us, and we are called [H7121] by thy name [H8034] ; leave [H3240] us not.(we: Heb. thy name is called upon us)
14:10 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] unto this people [H5971] , Thus have they loved [H157] to wander [H5128] , they have not refrained [H2820] their feet [H7272] , therefore the LORD [H3068] doth not accept [H7521] them; he will now remember [H2142] their iniquity [H5771] , and visit [H6485] their sins [H2403] .
14:11 Then said [H559] the LORD [H3068] unto me, Pray [H6419] not for this people [H5971] for [their] good [H2896] .
14:12 When they fast [H6684] , I will not hear [H8085] their cry [H7440] ; and when they offer [H5927] burnt offering [H5930] and an oblation [H4503] , I will not accept [H7521] them: but I will consume [H3615] them by the sword [H2719] , and by the famine [H7458] , and by the pestilence [H1698] .
14:13 Then said [H559] I, Ah [H162] , Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] ! behold, the prophets [H5030] say [H559] unto them, Ye shall not see [H7200] the sword [H2719] , neither shall ye have famine [H7458] ; but I will give [H5414] you assured [H571] peace [H7965] in this place [H4725] .(assured: Heb. peace of truth)
14:14 Then the LORD [H3068] said [H559] unto me, The prophets [H5030] prophesy [H5012] lies [H8267] in my name [H8034] : I sent [H7971] them not, neither have I commanded [H6680] them, neither spake [H1696] unto them: they prophesy [H5012] unto you a false [H8267] vision [H2377] and divination [H7081] , and a thing of nought [H457] [H434] , and the deceit [H8649] of their heart [H3820] .
14:15 Therefore thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] concerning the prophets [H5030] that prophesy [H5012] in my name [H8034] , and I sent [H7971] them not, yet they say [H559] , Sword [H2719] and famine [H7458] shall not be in this land [H776] ; By sword [H2719] and famine [H7458] shall those prophets [H5030] be consumed [H8552] .
14:16 And the people [H5971] to whom they prophesy [H5012] shall be cast out [H7993] in the streets [H2351] of Jerusalem [H3389] because [H6440] of the famine [H7458] and the sword [H2719] ; and they shall have none to bury [H6912] them [H1992] , them, their wives [H802] , nor their sons [H1121] , nor their daughters [H1323] : for I will pour [H8210] their wickedness [H7451] upon them.
14:17 Therefore thou shalt say [H559] this word [H1697] unto them; Let mine eyes [H5869] run down [H3381] with tears [H1832] night [H3915] and day [H3119] , and let them not cease [H1820] : for the virgin [H1330] daughter [H1323] of my people [H5971] is broken [H7665] with a great [H1419] breach [H7667] , with a very [H3966] grievous [H2470] blow [H4347] .
14:18 If I go forth [H3318] into the field [H7704] , then behold the slain [H2491] with the sword [H2719] ! and if I enter [H935] into the city [H5892] , then behold them that are sick [H8463] with famine [H7458] ! yea, both the prophet [H5030] and the priest [H3548] go about [H5503] into a land [H776] that they know [H3045] not.(go about: or, make merchandise against a land, and men acknowledge it not)
14:19 Hast thou utterly [H3988] rejected [H3988] Judah [H3063] ? hath thy soul [H5315] lothed [H1602] Zion [H6726] ? why hast thou smitten [H5221] us, and [there is] no healing [H4832] for us? we looked [H6960] for peace [H7965] , and [there is] no good [H2896] ; and for the time [H6256] of healing [H4832] , and behold trouble [H1205] !
14:20 We acknowledge [H3045] , O LORD [H3068] , our wickedness [H7562] , [and] the iniquity [H5771] of our fathers [H1] : for we have sinned [H2398] against thee.
14:21 Do not abhor [H5006] [us], for thy name's [H8034] sake, do not disgrace [H5034] the throne [H3678] of thy glory [H3519] : remember [H2142] , break [H6565] not thy covenant [H1285] with us.
14:22 Are there [H3426] [any] among the vanities [H1892] of the Gentiles [H1471] that can cause rain [H1652] ? or can the heavens [H8064] give [H5414] showers [H7241] ? [art] not thou he, O LORD [H3068] our God [H430] ? therefore we will wait [H6960] upon thee: for thou hast made [H6213] all these [things].
