Jeremiah 4:7-9 International Children’s Bible (ICB)

A lion has come out of his den.
    A destroyer of nations has begun to march.
He has left his home
    to destroy your land.
Your towns will be destroyed.
    There will be no people left to live in them.
So put on rough cloth,
    show how sad you are and cry loudly.
The terrible anger of the Lord
    has not turned away from us.

“When this happens,” says the Lord,
    “the king and officers will lose their courage.
The priests will be terribly afraid.
    And the prophets will be shocked!”

Jeremiah 4:7-9 New International Version (NIV)

A lion has come out of his lair;
    a destroyer of nations has set out.
He has left his place
    to lay waste your land.
Your towns will lie in ruins
    without inhabitant.
So put on sackcloth,
    lament and wail,
for the fierce anger of the Lord
    has not turned away from us.

“In that day,” declares the Lord,
    “the king and the officials will lose heart,
the priests will be horrified,
    and the prophets will be appalled.”
