Jeremiah chapter 16 verse 4 says this;

“They will die of deadly diseases. They will not be mourned or buried but will be like dung lying on the ground. They will perish by sword and famine, and their dead bodies will become food for the birds and the wild animals.”

These words came to Jeremiah the prophet as a warning from the Lord about the judgement that was going to be brought against the children of Israel for their stubbornness, wickedness and forĺ q worshipping other gods.

Eqn more than their rebellion, the graven images and idols that the children of Israel worshipped, defiled the land they lived in with spiritual pollution and thus the severity of the judgement that was to befall them.

For their deeds, they would live and die without dignity and be treated like refuse lying on the ground and being eaten by scavengers.

May we avoid idolatry in our lives and seek the righteousness of the Lord.
