Bible: Jer. 18:19-23
18:19 Then I said, 1
Listen to what my enemies are saying. 2
18:20 Should good be paid back with evil?
Yet they are virtually digging a pit to kill me. 3
Just remember how I stood before you
pleading on their behalf 4
to keep you from venting your anger on them. 5
18:21 So let their children die of starvation.
Let them be cut down by the sword. 6
Let their wives lose their husbands and children.
Let the older men die of disease 7
and the younger men die by the sword in battle.
18:22 Let cries of terror be heard in their houses
when you send bands of raiders unexpectedly to plunder them. 8
For they have virtually dug a pit to capture me
and have hidden traps for me to step into.
18:23 But you,
all their plots to kill me.
Do not pardon their crimes!
Do not ignore their sins as though you had erased them! 9
Let them be brought down in defeat before you!
Deal with them while you are still angry! 10
