Jeremiah 4:21-23 New English Translation (NET Bible)
21 “How long must I see the enemy’s battle flags
and hear the military signals of their bugles?”
22 The Lord answered,
“This will happen because my people are foolish.
They do not know me.
They are like children who have no sense.
They have no understanding.
They are skilled at doing evil.
They do not know how to do good.”
23 “I looked at the land and saw that it was an empty wasteland.
I looked up at the sky, and its light had vanished.
