Jeremiah 10-12/Matthew 1-2
OT – 10:17-22 “Pack your bag and prepare to leave; the siege is about to begin,” says the LORD. “For suddenly, I will fling you from this land and pour great troubles upon you. At last you will feel my anger.”
My wound is desperate, and my grief is great. My sickness is incurable, but I must bear it. My home is gone, and no one is left to help me rebuild it. My children have been taken away, and I will never see them again. The shepherds of my people have lost their senses. They no longer follow the LORD or ask what he wants of them. Therefore, they fail completely, and their flocks are scattered. Listen! Hear the terrifying roar of great armies as they roll down from the north. The towns of Judah will be destroyed and will become a haunt for jackals.
