Jeremiah 14:1 - 14:6

Yahweh Will Not Listen to Their Cry

That which came as the word of Yahweh to Jeremiah in regard to the drought:
“Judah mourns,
And her gates languish;
They sit on the ground in mourning,
And the outcry of Jerusalem has gone up.
Their mighty ones have sent their underlings for water;
They have come to the trenches and found no water.
They have returned with their vessels empty;
They have been put to shame and dishonored,
And they cover their heads.
Because the ground is dismayed,
For there has been no rain on the land,
The farmers have been put to shame;
They have covered their heads.
For even the doe in the field has given birth only to forsake her young
Because there is no grass.
The wild donkeys stand on the bare heights;
They pant for air like jackals;
Their eyes fail
For there is no vegetation.
