Bible: Jer 19:3-6

19:3 Say, ‘Listen to what the Lord says, you kings of Judah and citizens of Jerusalem! 1  The Lord God of Israel who rules over all 2  says, “I will bring a disaster on this place 3  that will make the ears of everyone who hears about it ring! 4  19:4 I will do so because these people 5  have rejected me and have defiled 6  this place. They have offered sacrifices in it to other gods which neither they nor their ancestors 7  nor the kings of Judah knew anything about. They have filled it with the blood of innocent children. 8  19:5 They have built places here 9  for worship of the god Baal so that they could sacrifice their children as burnt offerings to him in the fire. Such sacrifices 10  are something I never commanded them to make! They are something I never told them to do! Indeed, such a thing never even entered my mind! 19:6 So I, the Lord, say: 11  “The time will soon come that people will no longer call this place Topheth or the Hinnom Valley. But they will call this valley 12  the Valley of Slaughter!
