Bible: Jeremiah 21:11-14
Warnings to the Royal Court
“Listen to what the
21:12 O royal family descended from David. 3
Deliver those who have been robbed from those 6 who oppress them.
Otherwise, my wrath will blaze out against you.
It will burn like a fire that cannot be put out
because of the evil that you have done. 7
21:13 Listen, you 8 who sit enthroned above the valley on a rocky plateau.
‘You boast, “No one can swoop down on us.
No one can penetrate into our places of refuge.” 11
21:14 But I will punish you as your deeds deserve,’
‘I will set fire to your palace;
it will burn up everything around it.’” 13
