Jeremiah 6:13-15

Context

6:13 “That is because, from the least important to the most important of them,

all of them are greedy for dishonest gain.

Prophets and priests alike,

all of them practice deceit.

6:14 They offer only superficial help

for the harm my people have suffered. 1 

They say, ‘Everything will be all right!’

But everything is not all right! 2 

6:15 Are they ashamed because they have done such shameful things?

No, they are not at all ashamed.

They do not even know how to blush!

So they will die, just like others have died. 3 

They will be brought to ruin when I punish them,”

says the Lord.

1 tn Heb “They heal [= bandage] the wound of my people lightly”; TEV “They act as if my people’s wounds were only scratches.”

2 tn Heb “They say, ‘Peace! Peace!’ and there is no peace!”

3 tn Heb “They will fall among the fallen.”
