Bible: Jer 12:1-3

12:1 Lord, you have always been fair

whenever I have complained to you. 1 

However, I would like to speak with you about the disposition of justice. 2 

Why are wicked people successful? 3 

Why do all dishonest people have such easy lives?

12:2 You plant them like trees and they put down their roots. 4 

They grow prosperous and are very fruitful. 5 

They always talk about you,

but they really care nothing about you. 6 

12:3 But you, Lord, know all about me.

You watch me and test my devotion to you. 7 

Drag these wicked men away like sheep to be slaughtered!

Appoint a time when they will be killed! 8
