“‘Pour it out
On the children in the street!
Pour it out also
On the gatherings of young men!
Both husband with wife shall be taken.
The old folk shall be taken.
The very aged shall be taken.
Their houses shall be turned over to others.
Their fields shall be turned over to others.
Their wives also shall be turned over to others.
I will stretch out my hand
Against the inhabitants of the land.’
Yahweh, via Jeremiah, says that this information should be spread to the children in the streets and the young men. However, both husbands and wives will be taken away, as well as the old and very old people. Their houses, wives, and fields will be turned over to others. Yahweh was going to stretch out his hand against the inhabitants of this land.
