Jeremiah 22:21-23 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

21 I spake unto thee when thou wast in prosperity: but thou saidest, I will not hear, this hath been thy manner from thy youth, that thou wouldest not obey my voice.

22 The wind shall feed all thy pastors, [a]and thy lovers shall go into captivity: and then shalt thou be ashamed and confounded of all thy wickedness.

23 Thou that dwellest in Lebanon, and makest thy nest in the [b]cedars, how beautiful shalt thou be when sorrows come upon thee, as the sorrow of a woman in travail?


  1. Jeremiah 22:22 Both thy governors and they that should help thee, shall vanish away as wind.
  2. Jeremiah 22:23 Thou that art built of the fair Cedar trees of Lebanon.

Jeremiah 22:21-23 New International Version (NIV)

21 I warned you when you felt secure,
    but you said, ‘I will not listen!’
This has been your way from your youth;
    you have not obeyed me.
22 The wind will drive all your shepherds away,
    and your allies will go into exile.
Then you will be ashamed and disgraced
    because of all your wickedness.
23 You who live in ‘Lebanon,[a]
    who are nestled in cedar buildings,
how you will groan when pangs come upon you,
    pain like that of a woman in labor!


  1. Jeremiah 22:23 That is, the palace in Jerusalem (see 1 Kings 7:2)
