Bible: Jeremiah 32:26-32

The Lord Answers Jeremiah’s Prayer

32:26 The Lord answered Jeremiah. 1  32:27 I am the Lord, the God of all humankind. There is, indeed, nothing too difficult for me. 2  32:28 Therefore I, the Lord, say: 3  ‘I will indeed hand 4  this city over to King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon and the Babylonian army. 5  They will capture it. 32:29 The Babylonian soldiers 6  that are attacking this city will break into it and set it on fire. They will burn it down along with the houses where people have made me angry by offering sacrifices to the god Baal and by pouring out drink offerings to other gods on their rooftops. 7  32:30 This will happen because the people of Israel and Judah have repeatedly done what displeases me 8  from their earliest history until now 9  and because they 10  have repeatedly made me angry by the things they have done. 11  I, the Lord, affirm it! 12  32:31 This will happen because 13  the people of this city have aroused my anger and my wrath since the time they built it until now. 14  They have made me so angry that I am determined to remove 15  it from my sight. 32:32 I am determined to do so because the people of Israel and Judah have made me angry with all their wickedness – they, their kings, their officials, their priests, their prophets, and especially the people of Judah and the citizens of Jerusalem 16  have done this wickedness. 17
