Jeremiah 17.11-21


11 Like the partridge hatching what it did not lay,
   so are all who amass wealth unjustly;
in mid-life it will leave them,
   and at their end they will prove to be fools.


12 O glorious throne, exalted from the beginning,
   shrine of our sanctuary!
13 O hope of Israel! O Lord!
   All who forsake you shall be put to shame;
those who turn away from you* shall be recorded in the underworld,*
   for they have forsaken the fountain of living water, the Lord.

Jeremiah Prays for Vindication


14 Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed;
   save me, and I shall be saved;
   for you are my praise.
15 See how they say to me,
   ‘Where is the word of the Lord?
   Let it come!’
16 But I have not run away from being a shepherd* in your service,
   nor have I desired the fatal day.
You know what came from my lips;
   it was before your face.
17 Do not become a terror to me;
   you are my refuge on the day of disaster;
18 Let my persecutors be shamed,
   but do not let me be shamed;
let them be dismayed,
   but do not let me be dismayed;
bring on them the day of disaster;
   destroy them with double destruction!

Hallow the Sabbath Day

19 Thus said the Lord to me: Go and stand in the People’s Gate, by which the kings of Judah enter and by which they go out, and in all the gates of Jerusalem, 20and say to them: Hear the word of the Lord, you kings of Judah, and all Judah, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, who enter by these gates. 21Thus says the Lord: For the sake of your lives, take care that you do not bear a burden on the sabbath day or bring it in by the gates of Jerusalem.
