Jeremiah 4:7-9 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

An army will come out,
    like a lion from its den.
It will destroy nations
and leave your towns empty
    and in ruins.”

Then I said
    to the people of Israel,
“Put on sackcloth![a]
    Mourn and cry out,
‘The Lord is still angry
    with us.’”

The Lord said,

“When all this happens,
    the king and his officials,
the prophets and the priests
    will be shocked and terrified.”

Footnotes:

  1. 4.8 sackcloth: A rough, dark-colored cloth made from goat or camel hair and used to make grain sacks. It was worn in times of trouble or sorrow.
