Jeremiah 5:14-16 Common English Bible (CEB)

14 Therefore, the Lord God of heavenly forces proclaims:

Because you have spoken this way,
    I will put my words
        in your mouth as a fire;
    it will consume the people,
        who are but kindling.
15 I am about to bring a distant nation against you,
        people of Israel,
        declares the Lord.
    It is an established nation,
        an ancient nation,
        a nation whose language you don’t know,
        whose speech you won’t understand.
16 Its weapons are deadly;[a]
    its warriors are many.
