Bible: Jeremiah 32:16-20

Jeremiah’s Prayer of Praise and Bewilderment

32:16After I had given the copies of the deed of purchase to Baruch son of Neriah, I prayed to the Lord, 32:17 Oh, Lord God, 1  you did indeed 2  make heaven and earth by your mighty power and great strength. 3  Nothing is too hard for you! 32:18 You show unfailing love to thousands. 4  But you also punish children for the sins of their parents. 5  You are the great and powerful God who is known as the Lord who rules over all. 6  32:19 You plan great things and you do mighty deeds. 7  You see everything people do. 8  You reward each of them for the way they live and for the things they do. 9  32:20 You did miracles and amazing deeds in the land of Egypt which have had lasting effect. By this means you gained both in Israel and among humankind a renown that lasts to this day. 10
