Jeremiah 5:15-17 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

15 Beware! I will bring against you
    a nation from far away,
    O House of Israel—oracle of the Lord;
A long-lived nation, an ancient nation,
    a people whose language you do not know,
    whose speech you cannot understand.
16 Their quivers are like open graves;
    all of them are warriors.
17 They will devour your harvest and your bread,
    devour your sons and your daughters,
Devour your sheep and cattle,
    devour your vines and fig trees;
With their swords they will beat down
    the fortified cities in which you trust.

Jeremiah 6:22-26 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

22     Thus says the Lord:
See, a people comes from the land of the north,
    a great nation, rising from the very ends of the earth.
23 Bow and javelin they wield;
    cruel and pitiless are they.
They sound like the roaring sea
    as they ride forth on horses,
Each in his place for battle
    against you, daughter Zion.
24 We hear news of them;
    our hands hang helpless,
Anguish takes hold of us,
    pangs like a woman in childbirth.
25 Do not go out into the field,
    do not step into the street,
For the enemy has a sword;
    terror on every side!
26 Daughter of my people, dress in sackcloth,
    roll in the ashes.
Mourn as for an only child
    with bitter wailing:
“How suddenly the destroyer
    comes upon us!”

Baruch 4:15-16 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

15 He has brought against them a nation from afar,
    a nation ruthless and of alien speech,
That has neither reverence for old age
    nor pity for the child;
16 They have led away this widow’s beloved sons,
    have left me solitary, without daughters.
