Jeremiah 8:15-16

Context

8:15 We hoped for good fortune, but nothing good has come of it.

We hoped for a time of relief, but instead we experience terror. 1 

8:16 The snorting of the enemy’s horses

is already being heard in the city of Dan.

The sound of the neighing of their stallions 2 

causes the whole land to tremble with fear.

They are coming to destroy the land and everything in it!

They are coming to destroy 3  the cities and everyone who lives in them!”

1 tn Heb “[We hoped] for a time of healing but behold terror.”

2 tn Heb “his stallions.”

3 tn The words “They are coming to destroy” are not in the text. They are inserted to break up a long sentence in conformity with contemporary English style.
