14:2 Judah, mourneth, And, the gates thereof, pine, They lie in gloom on the ground,And, the outcry of Jerusalem, hath ascended;
14:3 And, their nobles, have sent their menials to the waters,They have been to the pits, They have found no water, They have returned, their vessels, empty, They are pale and ashamed, and have covered their heads.
14:4 Because, the ground, is cracked, For there hath been no rain in the land, The plowmen are pale, They have covered their heads.
14:5 For, even the hind of the field, hath calved, and forsaken, Because there is no, young herbage;
14:6 Yea, wild asses, stand still on the bare heights, They pant for air like jackals,Dimmed, are their eyes, Because there is, no grass.
14:8 Thou Hope of Israel, His Saviour in the time of distress,Wherefore, shouldst thou be as a sojourner in the and? Or as a wayfarer, who hath turned aside to lodge for the night?
14:10 ¶ Thus, saith Yahweh, To this people, In this way, have they loved to wander, Their feet, have they not restrained,Yahweh, therefore hath not accepted them, Now, will he call to mind their iniquity,That he may punish their sins.
14:12 Though they fast, I am not going to hearken unto their loud cry, and, Though they offer ascending-sacrifice and meal-offering, I am not going to accept them,For, with sword, and with famine, and with pestilence, am, I, about to consume them.
14:14 So then Yahweh said unto me, Falsehood, are the prophets prophesying in my name, I have not sent them, Neither have I commanded them, Neither have I spoken unto them,A vision of falsehood, and, A divination of worthlessness, and, A fraud of their own hearts, They, are prophesying unto you.
14:15 Therefore, Thus, saith Yahweh, concerning the prophets who are prophesying in my Name, though, I, sent them not, and yet, they, have been saying, Neither sword nor famine, shall there be in this land,By sword or by famine, shall, those, prophets, be consumed;
14:16 And, the people to whom they, have been prophesying, shall be getting cast out into the streets of Jerusalem, because of the famine and the sword, and of there being none, to give burial, unto them, them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters,So will I pour out upon them their own wickedness.
14:17 ¶ Therefore shalt thou say unto them this word, Let mine eyes, run down, with tears night and day, And let them not rest,For, with a grievous injury, hath been injured the virgin, the daughter of my people, With a wound, severe indeed!
14:18 If I have gone out into the field, Then lo! the slain of the sword! And, if I have entered the city, Then lo! the diseases of famine! For, both prophet and priest, have trafficked against the land, unnoticed.
14:19 Hast thou, utterly rejected, Judah? Zion itself, hath thy soul loathed? Why, hast thou smitten us, so that there is for us no, healing? A waiting For prosperity, but no, welfare, and, For a time of healing, but lo! terror!
14:21 Do not despisefor the sake of thy Name, Do not treat with contemptthe throne of thy glory,Remember!do not break thy covenant with us.
14:22 Are, there, among the vanities of the nations, senders of rain? Or can, the heavens themselves, give myriad drops? Art not, thou, he, O Yahweh our God? Therefore will we wait for thee, For, thou, hast made all these.
