1 At that time, sayeth the Lord, they shall bring out the bones of the kings of Iudah, and the bones of his princes, and the bones of the Priests, and the bones of the Prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Ierusalem out of their graues.
2 And they shall spread them before the Sunne, and the Moone, and all the hoste of heauen whom they haue loued, and whom they haue serued, and after whom they haue walked, and whom they haue sought, and whom they haue worshipped: they shall not be gathered, nor be buried, they shall be for doung, vpon the face of the earth.
10 Therfore will I giue their wiues vnto others, & their fields to them that shall inherite them: for euery one from the least euen vnto the greatest is giuen to couetousnes, from the Prophet euen vnto the priest, euery one dealeth falsly.
12 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall among them that fal, in the time of their visitation they shall be cast downe, saith the Lord.
13 ¶ I will surely consume them, saith the Lord; there shalbe no grapes on the vine, nor figges on the figtree, and the leafe shall fade, and the things that I haue giuen them, shall passe away from them.
14 Why doe wee sit still? assemble your selues, and let vs enter into the defenced cities, and let vs be silent there: for the Lord our God hath put vs to silence, and giuen vs waters of gall to drink, because we haue sinned against the Lord.
16 The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan: the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones, for they are come and haue deuoured the land, and all that is in it, the citie, and those that dwell therein.
19 Behold the voice of the crie of the daughter of my people because of them that dwel in a farre countrey: Is not the Lord in Zion? is not her king in her? why haue they prouoked me to anger with their grauen images, and with strange vanities?

Jeremiah 8:8 is only reminding us of how far we have negleted both the law and the word of GOD and how deep wickedness has eating deep into our society. It is a wake up call to our prophets(preachers), religiouse leaders and political leaders.

Timothy Wayne George's Jeremiah Chapter 8 comment on 3/24/2012, 5:17pm...
The Judgement of God is soon to come, because priest, and the people are given to coveteousness. The people are not aware of the hour of judgement that is about to come upon them for their wickeness. We too must repent, and turn to the Lord in sathcloth and ashes. Turn from vanity, and give God the glory only for he will not share his glory with any graven image. This is why Jeremiah was weeping for the daughters of Zion because judgement was coming. Preachers should be weeping today in the congregation for the people to return to the Lord.

Ngozi Obinwa's Jeremiah Chapter 8 comment about verse 8 on 8/23/2011, 8:35am...
I was Totally shocked by NIV (and other Bible)translations of Jeremiah 8: 8 as compared with King James version (1984 ed.,).
8 “‘How can you say, “We are wise,
for we have the law of the LORD,”
when actually the lying pen of the scribes
has handled it falsely?
8 How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain.
First, I think the error arose from he (KJV)when it should be He (God).
Consequently the verse should literally read thus:
8 How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made He it; the pen of the scribes is in vain.
My modern English Translations will then read:
8 How can you say you are wise because you have the law of God ? Indeed God’s (written) law to you is in vain (useless) and the efforts of the scribes (in writing it) were also in vain.
8 How can you say you are wise because you have the law of God ? Indeed God’s law is mocked by you and the efforts of the scribes were therefore in vain.
8 Why do you boast you are wise simply because you have God’s Law? In fact God’s Law mean nothing to you and the scribe’s efforts (in writing it ) was a waste
8 Why do you boast you are wise simply because you have God’s Law? Honestly, God’s Law has achieved nothing with you and the efforts of the scribe in writing it was a waste
As demonstrated in the whole Chapter 8 of Jeremiah, God was rebuking his people (the Jews) for not following the laws he laid down for them. In order not to repeat the whole argument as outlined by the chapter, God says their refusing to follow the laws He caused to be written down for them means that the writer’s (scribe’s) efforts are then in Vain.
God did not say that what the scribes wrote is wrong but that Jews do not follow the writings and thus the writings are in vain; of no use ; not yielding fruit, -in other words they scorn the writing and because of this, God is going to punish them.
PLEASE, PLEASE, what is happening to the Bible? Has SATAN infiltrated and corrupted the Bible beyond rescue? How can these men of ?God supposedly filled with the Holy Ghost be unable to translate simple clear passages like Jer 8:8 where the whole context is repeating the same message over and over again. I am totally FURIOUS with these mistranslations.
All these new translations are causing more HARM than good.
Before these Bible TRANSLATORS produce another version, I strongly suggest they put out a world call to all Christians to submit errors / misrepresentations they found in NIV / other Bible versions(via their Pastors) so that you don't create a bigger BLUNDER next time.

God has brought seasons and diversity of times that we may consider and change our hearts towards Him, but we did not take heed.
