Jeremiah 20:15–18

15  Cursed be the man who brought the news to my father,

“A son is born to you,”

making him very glad.

16  Let that man be like the cities

that the Lord overthrew without pity;

let him hear a cry in the morning

and an alarm at noon,

17  because he did not kill me in the womb;

so my mother would have been my grave,

and her womb forever great.

18  Why did I come out from the womb

to see toil and sorrow,

and spend my days in shame?
