Context Readings

Jeremiah Is Commanded Not To Marry

5 Again, thus sayeth the LORD: Go not unto them that come together for to mourn and weep: for I have taken my peace from this people, sayeth the LORD; yea, my favour and my mercy. 6 And in this land shall they die, old and young, and shall not be buried: no man shall beweep them, no man shall clip or shave himself for them. 7 There shall not one visit another, to mourn with them for their dead, or to comfort them. One shall not offer another the cup of consolation, to forget their heaviness for father and mother.
