Jeremiah the Prophet

Here are verses 16-18 of the Book of Jeremiah:

"Make mention to the nations
Yes, proclaim against Jerusalem,
That watchers come from a far country
And raise their voice against the cities of Judah.

Because she has been rebellious against Me," says the Lord.

"Your ways and your doings
Have procured these things for you.
This is your wickedness,
Because it is bitter,
Because it reaches to your heart."
