Best Answer

More than any other prophet Jeremiah expressed grief at the unrepentant and stubborn nature of his people. He also saw the coming judgment and grieved over the great disaster this was to be for the nation and the destruction, heartache and pain and death involved.

Mainly due to Jeremiah 9:1.

Mainly Jeremiah warned the people repeatedly to repent from their sins, or god would punish them severally , But they refused to hear the warning of Jeremiah the prophet, and in the end the Jews-were taken as slaves again to Babylon.
