Bible: Jeremiah 11:15-16

11:15 The Lord says to the people of Judah, 1 

“What right do you have to be in my temple, my beloved people? 2 

Many of you have done wicked things. 3 

Can your acts of treachery be so easily canceled by sacred offerings 4 

that you take joy in doing evil even while you make them? 5 

11:16 I, the Lord, once called 6  you a thriving olive tree,

one that produced beautiful fruit.

But I will set you 7  on fire,

fire that will blaze with a mighty roar. 8 

Then all your branches will be good for nothing. 9
