    1Ki 18:5,6

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:3

    Y los principales de ellos enviaron sus criados al agua; vinieron a las lagunas, y no hallaron agua; volvieron con sus vasos vacíos; se avergonzaron, se confundieron, y cubrieron sus cabezas.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Jeremiah 14:3

    Verse 3. Their nobles have sent their little ones] So
    general was this calamity, that the servants no longer attended to their lords, but every one was interested alone for himself; and the nobles of the land were obliged to employ their own children to scour the land, to see if any water could be found in the tanks or the pits. In the dearth in the time of Elijah, Ahab the king, and Obadiah his counselor, were obliged to traverse the land themselves, in order to find out water to keep their cattle alive. This and the three following verses give a lively but distressing picture of this dearth and its effects.
    Matthew Henry Commentary
    A drought upon the
    land of Judah. (Jer. 14:1-7) A confession of sin in the name of the people. (Jer. 14:8-9) The Divine purpose to punish is declared. (Jer. 14:10-16) The people supplicate. (Jer. 14:17-22)

    Jer. 14:1-9 The people were in tears. But it was rather the cry of their trouble, and of their sin, than of their prayer. Let us be thankful for the mercy of water, that we may not be taught to value it by feeling the want of it. See what dependence husbandmen have upon the Divine providence. They cannot plough nor sow in hope, unless God wate their furrows. The case even of the wild beasts was very pitiable. The people are not forward to pray, but the prophet prays for them. Sin is humbly confessed. Our sins not only accuse us, but answer against us Our best pleas in prayer are those fetched from the glory of God's ow name. We should dread God's departure, more than the removal of ou creature-comforts. He has given Israel his word to hope in. It become us in prayer to show ourselves more concerned for God's glory than for our own comfort. And if we now return to the Lord, he will save us to the glory of his grace.

    Jer. 14:10-16 The Lord calls the Jews "this people," not "his people. They had forsaken his service, therefore he would punish them accordin to their sins. He forbade Jeremiah to plead for them. The fals prophets were the most criminal. The Lord pronounces condemnation of them; but as the people loved to have it so, they were not to escap judgments. False teachers encourage men to expect peace and salvation without repentance, faith, conversion, and holiness of life. But thos who believe a lie must not plead if for an excuse. They shall feel what they say they will not fear.

    Jer. 14:17-22 Jeremiah acknowledged his own sins, and those of the people, but pleaded with the Lord to remember his covenant. In their distress none of the idols of the Gentiles could help them, nor coul the heavens give rain of themselves. The Lord will always have a people to plead with him at his mercy-seat. He will heal every truly repentin sinner. Should he not see fit to hear our prayers on behalf of ou guilty land, he will certainly bless with salvation all who confes their sins and seek his mercy __________________________________________________________________
