Jeremiah 20:14

Context
NETBible

Cursed be the day I was born! May that day not be blessed when my mother gave birth to me. 1 

XREF

Job 3:3-16; Jer 15:10

NET © Notes

sn From the heights of exaltation, Jeremiah returns to the depths of despair. For similar mood swings in the psalms of lament compare Ps 102. Verses 14-18 are similar in tone and mood to Job 3:1-10. They are very forceful rhetorical ways of Job and Jeremiah expressing the wish that they had never been born.
