The harvest is past, the summer is ended,
and we are not saved. Bible other translations

“The harvest is past, the summer is ended.” This does not likely refer to specific times of that particular year, but rather was likely a well-known saying about a seemingly hopeless situation. If the grain harvest was over and summer, the time of fruits and vegetables was over too, and there had been no harvest, then starvation loomed ahead. It seems that Jeremiah was saying that the time for repentance had come and gone and now God’s vengeance was in sight.
