19 You will be given a burial
    fit for a donkey;
your body will be dragged
outside the city gates
    and tossed in the dirt.
I, the Lord, have spoken.

King Jehoiachin and the People of Jerusalem

The Lord told me to say:

20 People of Jerusalem,
the nations[a] you trusted
    have been crushed.
Go to Lebanon and weep;
cry in the land of Bashan
    and in Moab.
21 When times were good,
    I warned you.
But you ignored me,
just as you have done
    since Israel was young.
