JER 18:14 Will a man leave the snow of Lebanon which cometh from the
rock of the field? or shall the cold flowing waters that come from
another place be forsaken?
JER 18:15 Because my people hath forgotten me, they have burned incense
to vanity, and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the
ancient paths, to walk in paths, in a way not cast up;
JER 18:16 To make their land desolate, and a perpetual hissing; every
one that passeth thereby shall be astonished, and wag his head.
JER 18:17 I will scatter them as with an east wind before the enemy; I
will shew them the back, and not the face, in the day of their calamity.
