Jeremiah 4:9-11 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
9 In that day—oracle of the Lord—
The king will lose heart, and the princes;
the priests will be horrified,
and the prophets stunned.
10 “Ah! Lord God,” they will say,
“You really did deceive us
When you said: You shall have peace,
while the sword was at our very throats.”
11 At that time it will be said
to this people and to Jerusalem,
A scorching wind from the bare heights comes
through the wilderness toward my daughter, the people.
Not to winnow, not to cleanse,
