Bible: Jer 12:7-9
12:7 “I will abandon my nation. 1
I will forsake the people I call my own. 2
I will turn my beloved people 3
over to the power 4 of their enemies.
12:8 The people I call my own 5 have turned on me
like a lion 6 in the forest.
They have roared defiantly 7 at me.
So I will treat them as though I hate them. 8
12:9 The people I call my own attack me like birds of prey or like hyenas. 9
But other birds of prey are all around them. 10
Let all the nations gather together like wild beasts.
Let them come and destroy these people I call my own. 11
