Bible: Jeremiah 12:1-5
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,
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
12:4 How long must the land be parched 9
and the grass in every field be withered?
How long 10 must the animals and the birds die
because of the wickedness of the people who live in this land? 11
For these people boast,
“If you have raced on foot against men and they have worn you out,
how will you be able to compete with horses?
how will you manage in the thick undergrowth along the Jordan River? 17
