Jeremiah 4:23-28 NLT
I looked at the earth, and it was empty and formless.
I looked at the heavens, and there was no light.
I looked at the mountains and hills,
and they trembled and shook.
I looked, and all the people were gone.
All the birds of the sky had flown away.
I looked, and the fertile fields had become a wilderness.
The towns lay in ruins,
crushed by the LORD’s fierce anger.
This is what the LORD says:
“The whole land will be ruined,
but I will not destroy it completely.
The earth will mourn
and the heavens will be draped in black
because of my decree against my people.
I have made up my mind and will not change it.”
