Jeremiah 16:9; Jeremiah 25:10; Psalm 78:63; Isaiah 24:7-8; Revelation 18:22-23; Ezekiel 26:13; Hosea 2:11

For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: sBehold, I will silence in this place, before your eyes and in your days, the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride.


10 Moreover, qI will banish from them the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, rthe grinding of the millstones and sthe light of the lamp.


63  jFire devoured their young men,

and their young women had no kmarriage song.


nThe wine mourns,

the vine languishes,

all the merry-hearted sigh.

oThe mirth of the tambourines is stilled,

the noise of the jubilant has ceased,

the mirth of the lyre is stilled.


22  and gthe sound of harpists and musicians, of flute players and trumpeters,

will be heard in you no more,

and a craftsman of any craft

will be found in you no more,

and hthe sound of the mill

will be heard in you no more,

23  and the light of a lamp

will shine in you no more,

and ithe voice of bridegroom and bride

will be heard in you no more,

for jyour merchants were the great ones of the earth,

and all nations were deceived kby your sorcery.


13 cAnd I will stop the music of your songs, and dthe sound of your lyres shall be heard no more.


11  uAnd I will put an end to all her mirth,

her feasts, her vnew moons, her vSabbaths,

and all her wappointed feasts.
