When the End Comes


{Jeremiah 14:1-6}

Yehudah mourns, and the gates thereof languish

her people lament upon the ground

and the cry of Yerushalem is gone up

and her nobles have sent their little ones to the waters

they came to the pits, and found no water

they returned with their vessels empty

they were ashamed and confounded

and covered their heads

because the ground is shattered, for there was no rain in the earth

the plowmen were ashamed

they covered their head.

the doe also calved in the field, and forsook it

because there was no grass

and the wild donkeys did stand in the high places

they snuffed up the wind like jackals

their eyes did fail

because there was no grass
