Context Readings

Jeremiah's Imprecatory Prayer

18 Then said they, - Come ye and let us devise against Jeremiah devices, For the law shall not perish from the priest, Nor, counsel, from the wise, Nor, the word from the prophet: Come and let as smite him with the tongue, And let us not give ear to any of his words! 19 Give thou ear O Yahweh unto me, - And hearken unto the voice of mine accusers. 20 Shall, evil, be recompensed for good? For they have digged a pit for my life, - Remember how I stood before thee To speak in their behalf what was good! To turn back thine indignation from them.
