Context
God's Answer to Jeremiah

5If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, then how can you contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein you trusted, they wearied you, then how will you do in the swelling of Jordan? 6For even your brothers, and the house of your father, even they have dealt treacherously with you; yes, they have called a multitude after you: believe them not, though they speak fair words to you. 7I have forsaken my house, I have left my heritage; I have given the dearly beloved of my soul into the hand of her enemies. 8My heritage is to me as a lion in the forest; it cries out against me: therefore have I hated it. 9My heritage is to me as a speckled bird, the birds round about are against her; come you, assemble all the beasts of the field, come to devour. 10Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness. 11They have made it desolate, and being desolate it mourns to me; the whole land is made desolate, because no man lays it to heart. 12The spoilers are come on all high places through the wilderness: for the sword of the LORD shall devour from the one end of the land even to the other end of the land: no flesh shall have peace. 13They have sown wheat, but shall reap thorns: they have put themselves to pain, but shall not profit: and they shall be ashamed of your revenues because of the fierce anger of the LORD.
