Bible: Jer 22:1-5

22:1 The Lord told me, 1  “Go down 2  to the palace of the king of Judah. Give him a message from me there. 3  22:2 Say: ‘Listen, O king of Judah who follows in David’s succession. 4  You, your officials, and your subjects who pass through the gates of this palace must listen to what the Lord says. 5  22:3 The Lord says, “Do what is just and right. Deliver those who have been robbed from those 6  who oppress them. Do not exploit or mistreat foreigners who live in your land, children who have no fathers, or widows. 7  Do not kill innocent people 8  in this land. 22:4 If you are careful to 9  obey these commands, then the kings who follow in David’s succession and ride in chariots or on horses will continue to come through the gates of this palace, as will their officials and their subjects. 10  22:5 But, if you do not obey these commands, I solemnly swear 11  that this palace will become a pile of rubble. I, the Lord, affirm it! 12
