Bible: Jeremiah 32:17-24

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  32:21 You used your mighty power and your great strength to perform miracles and amazing deeds and to bring great terror on the Egyptians. By this means you brought your people Israel out of the land of Egypt. 11  32:22 You kept the promise that you swore on oath to their ancestors. 12  You gave them a land flowing with milk and honey. 13  32:23 But when they came in and took possession of it, they did not obey you or live as you had instructed them. They did not do anything that you commanded them to do. 14  So you brought all this disaster on them. 32:24 Even now siege ramps have been built up around the city 15  in order to capture it. War, 16  starvation, and disease are sure to make the city fall into the hands of the Babylonians 17  who are attacking it. 18  Lord, 19  you threatened that this would happen. Now you can see that it is already taking place. 20
