Jeremiah 22:21-23 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

21 When times were good,
    I warned you.
But you ignored me,
just as you have done
    since Israel was young.
22 Now you will be disgraced
    because of your sins.
Your leaders will be swept away
    by the wind,
and the nations you trusted
will be captured
and dragged
    to a foreign country.
23 Those who live in the palace
    paneled with cedar[a]
will groan with pain
    like women giving birth.

Footnotes:

  1. 22.23 who live in the palace paneled with cedar: The Hebrew text has “who live in Lebanon and who nest among the cedars,” which probably means Forest Hall in the royal palace at Jerusalem, which was paneled with cedar and had cedar columns and a cedar ceiling, all from Lebanon (see 1 Kings 7.2,3).
