18 The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women gknead their dough, hto make cakes to the ||iqueen of heaven, and hkto pour out drink offerings unto other gods, lthat they may provoke me to anger. 19 mDo they provoke me to anger? saith the Lord: ndo they not provoke themselves oto the confusion of their own faces? 20 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold, pmine anger and my fury shall be poured out upon this place, upon man, ppand upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn, pqand shall not be quenched.
Or, frame, or, workmanship of heaven.
