Jeremiah 11:18-20

Jeremiah’s Life Threatened


18 It was the Lord who made it known to me, and I knew;
   then you showed me their evil deeds.
19 But I was like a gentle lamb
   led to the slaughter.
And I did not know it was against me
   that they devised schemes, saying,
‘Let us destroy the tree with its fruit,
   let us cut him off from the land of the living,
   so that his name will no longer be remembered!’
20 But you, O Lord of hosts, who judge righteously,
   who try the heart and the mind,
let me see your retribution upon them,
   for to you I have committed my cause.
