THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Jeremiah (Author Jeremiah)

20:14Cursed be the day wherein I was born: let not the day wherein my mother bare me be blessed.

20:15Cursed be the man who brought tidings to my father, saying, A man child is born unto thee; making him very glad.

20:16And let that man be as the cities which the LORD overthrew, and repented not: and let him hear the cry in the morning, and the shouting at noontide;

20:17Because he slew me not from the womb; or that my mother might have been my grave, and her womb to be always great with me.

20:18Wherefore came I forth out of the womb to see labour and sorrow, that my days should be consumed with shame?
