Jeremiah 7:34

Context
7:34 I will put an end to the sounds of joy and gladness, or the glad celebration of brides and grooms throughout the towns of Judah and the streets of Jerusalem. For the whole land will become a desolate wasteland.”

Jeremiah 25:10

Context
25:10 I will put an end to the sounds of joy and gladness, to the glad celebration of brides and grooms in these lands. 1  I will put an end to the sound of people grinding meal. I will put an end to lamps shining in their houses. 2 

1 sn Compare Jer 7:24 and 16:9 for this same dire prediction limited to Judah and Jerusalem.

2 sn The sound of people grinding meal and the presence of lamps shining in their houses were signs of everyday life. The Lord is going to make these lands desolate (v. 11) destroying all signs of life. (The statement is, of course, hyperbolic or poetic exaggeration; even after the destruction of Jerusalem many people were left in the land.) For these same descriptions of everyday life applying to the end of life see the allegory in Eccl 12:3-6.
