swelling of Jordan?
JER 12:6 For even thy brethren, and the house of thy father, even they
have dealt treacherously with thee; yea, they have called a multitude
after thee: believe them not, though they speak fair words unto thee.
JER 12:7 I have forsaken mine house, I have left mine heritage; I have
given the dearly beloved of my soul into the hand of her enemies.
JER 12:8 Mine heritage is unto me as a lion in the forest; it crieth
out against me: therefore have I hated it.
JER 12:9 Mine heritage is unto me as a speckled bird, the birds round
about are against her; come ye, assemble all the beasts of the field,
come to devour.
