Why this ruin? (Jer 9:12-9:12)

“Who is wise enough

To understand this?

To whom

Has the mouth of Yahweh spoken?

Who can declare it?

Why is the land ruined?

Why is it laid waste

Like a wilderness?

Why does no one pass through?”

Yahweh asks the simple question. Why did there have to be this devastating ruin? Was anyone wise enough to understand what was happening? Who did Yahweh tell about what was going to happen? Why this great ruin and wasteland with no one around? The answer, my friends, is blowing in the wind. Yahweh will respond to his own questions.
