Bible: Jeremiah 25:15-20

Judah and the Nations Will Experience God’s Wrath

25:15 So 1  the Lord, the God of Israel, spoke to me in a vision. 2  “Take this cup from my hand. It is filled with the wine of my wrath. 3  Take it and make the nations to whom I send you drink it. 25:16 When they have drunk it, they will stagger to and fro 4  and act insane. For I will send wars sweeping through them.” 5 

25:17 So I took the cup from the Lord’s hand. I made all the nations to whom he sent me drink the wine of his wrath. 6  25:18 I made Jerusalem 7  and the cities of Judah, its kings and its officials drink it. 8  I did it so Judah would become a ruin. I did it so Judah, its kings, and its officials would become an object 9  of horror and of hissing scorn, an example used in curses. 10  Such is already becoming the case! 11  25:19 I made all of these other people drink it: Pharaoh, king of Egypt; 12  his attendants, his officials, his people, 25:20 the foreigners living in Egypt; 13  all the kings of the land of Uz; 14  all the kings of the land of the Philistines, 15  the people of Ashkelon, Gaza, Ekron, the people who had been left alive from Ashdod; 16
