Jeremiah 8v18-22 - The medicine near at handDownload:
Jeremiah - the "weeping prophet" - preached judgment upon God's people and God's city. But the people would not listen. In this passage we hear Jeremiah's voice, the people's voice, and ultimately God's voice - speaking both in righteous anger, and in compassionate mercy in Jesus Christ.

18When I would comfort myself against sorrow, my heart is faint in me. 19Behold the voice of the cry of the daughter of my people because of them that dwell in a far country: Is not the LORD in Zion? is not her king in her? Why have they provoked me to anger with their graven images, and with strange vanities? 20The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved. 21For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt; I am black; astonishment hath taken hold on me. 22Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered? (KJV)
