Jeremiah 4:7

Context

4:7 Like a lion that has come up from its lair 1 

the one who destroys nations has set out from his home base. 2 

He is coming out to lay your land waste.

Your cities will become ruins and lie uninhabited.

Jeremiah 9:11

Context

9:11 The Lord said, 3 

“I will make Jerusalem 4  a heap of ruins.

Jackals will make their home there. 5 

I will destroy the towns of Judah

so that no one will be able to live in them.”

1 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.

2 tn Heb “his place.”

3 tn The words “the Lord said” are not in the text, but it is obvious from the content that he is the speaker. These words are supplied in the translation for clarity.

5 tn Heb “a heap of ruins, a haunt for jackals.”
