Jeremiah 6:27
Context
An Invasion From the North

22Thus said the LORD, Behold, a people comes from the north country, and a great nation shall be raised from the sides of the earth. 23They shall lay hold on bow and spear; they are cruel, and have no mercy; their voice roars like the sea; and they ride on horses, set in array as men for war against you, O daughter of Zion. 24We have heard the fame thereof: our hands wax feeble: anguish has taken hold of us, and pain, as of a woman in travail. 25Go not forth into the field, nor walk by the way; for the sword of the enemy and fear is on every side. 26O daughter of my people, gird you with sackcloth, and wallow yourself in ashes: make you mourning, as for an only son, most bitter lamentation: for the spoiler shall suddenly come on us. 27I have set you for a tower and a fortress among my people, that you may know and try their way. 28They are all grievous rebels, walking with slanders: they are brass and iron; they are all corrupters. 29The bellows are burned, the lead is consumed of the fire; the founder melts in vain: for the wicked are not plucked away. 30Reprobate silver shall men call them, because the LORD has rejected them.
