Jeremiah 13:19-21 Living Bible (TLB)

19 The cities of the Negeb to the south of Jerusalem have closed their gates against the enemy. They must defend themselves, for Jerusalem cannot help;[a] and all Judah shall be taken away as slaves.

20 See the armies marching from the north! Where is your flock, Jerusalem,[b] your beautiful flock he gave you to take care of ? 21 How will you feel when he sets your allies over you as your rulers? You will writhe in pain like a woman having a child.


  1. Jeremiah 13:19 for Jerusalem cannot help, literally, “for the cities are closed and none can open them.” Perhaps the meaning is that they are permanently abandoned.
  2. Jeremiah 13:20 Jerusalem, implied.
