Jeremiah 4:6-7

Context

4:6 Raise a signal flag that tells people to go to Zion. 1 

Run for safety! Do not delay!

For I am about to bring disaster out of the north.

It will bring great destruction. 2 

4:7 Like a lion that has come up from its lair 3 

the one who destroys nations has set out from his home base. 4 

He is coming out to lay your land waste.

Your cities will become ruins and lie uninhabited.

1 tn Heb “Raise up a signal toward Zion.”

2 tn Heb “out of the north, even great destruction.”

3 tn Heb “A lion has left its lair.” The metaphor is turned into a simile for clarification. The word translated “lair” has also been understood to refer to a hiding place. However, it appears to be cognate in meaning to the word translated “lair” in Ps 10:9; Jer 25:38, a word which also refers to the abode of the Lord in Ps 76:3.

4 tn Heb “his place.”
