Jeremiah 13:12-19

12You shall speak to them this word: Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel: Every wine-jar should be filled with wine. And they will say to you, “Do you think we do not know that every wine-jar should be filled with wine?” 13Then you shall say to them: Thus says the Lord: I am about to fill all the inhabitants of this land—the kings who sit on David’s throne, the priests, the prophets, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem—with drunkenness. 14And I will dash them one against another, parents and children together, says the Lord. I will not pity or spare or have compassion when I destroy them. 15Hear and give ear; do not be haughty, for the Lord has spoken. 16Give glory to the Lord your God before he brings darkness, and before your feet stumble on the mountains at twilight; while you look for light, he turns it into gloom and makes it deep darkness. 17But if you will not listen, my soul will weep in secret for your pride; my eyes will weep bitterly and run down with tears, because the Lord’s flock has been taken captive. 18Say to the king and the queen mother; “Take a lowly seat, for your beautiful crown has come down from your head.” 19The towns of the Negeb are shut up with no one to open them; all Judah is taken into exile, wholly taken into exile.
