Jeremiah 17:14–18

14 Heal me, O Yahweh, and I will be healed,

save me, and I will be saved,

for you are my praise.

15 Look, they are saying to me,

“Where is the word of Yahweh?

Please let it come.”

16 But I, I have not run away from being a shepherd who follows you,j

and I have not desired the disastrous day.

You, you know the pronouncement of my lips,

it was before your face.

17 You must not become to me a terror,

you are my refuge in the day of disaster.

18 Let my persecutors be put to shame,

but as for me,k do not let me be put to shame.

Let them be dismayed,

but as for me,l do not let me be dismayed.

Bring on them the day of disaster,

and with double destruction, destroy them.
