Jeremiah declared that God’s judgment would bring an end to the sounds of celebration throughout the nation of Judah. Even the songs of joy associated with weddings would be heard no more.

Weddings of Bible times were events of great celebration that included the entire community (Matt 25:1-3). The wedding party would march through the streets to sounds of music, singing, and the cheers of the people. Neighbors and friends would be invited to an elaborate wedding feast that lasted for several days.

JEREMIAH 7:34 – Then will I [God} cause to cease from the cities of Judah, and from the cities of Judah, and from the streets of Jerusalem, the voice of mirth [joy, NIV], and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride.
