Jeremiah 8:18-22 NLT
My grief is beyond healing;
my heart is broken.
Listen to the weeping of my people;
it can be heard all across the land.
“Has the LORD abandoned Jerusalem?” the people ask.
“Is her King no longer there?”
“Oh, why have they provoked my anger with their carved idols
and their worthless foreign gods?” says the LORD.
“The harvest is finished,
and the summer is gone,” the people cry,
“yet we are not saved!”
I hurt with the hurt of my people.
I mourn and am overcome with grief.
Is there no medicine in Gilead?
Is there no physician there?
Why is there no healing
for the wounds of my people?
NLT: New Living Translation
