Jeremiah 5:10–15

10 “Go through her vineyards and ravage them,

but do not destroy them completely.t

Strip off her branches,

for these people do not belong to the Lord.

11 The people of Israel and the people of Judah

have been utterly unfaithfulu to me,”

declares the Lord.

12 They have liedv about the Lord;

they said, “He will do nothing!

No harm will come to us;w

we will never see sword or famine.x

13 The prophetsy are but windz

and the word is not in them;

so let what they say be done to them.”

14 Therefore this is what the Lord God Almighty says:

“Because the people have spoken these words,

I will make my words in your moutha a fireb

and these people the wood it consumes.c

15 People of Israel,” declares the Lord,

“I am bringing a distant nationd against you—

an ancient and enduring nation,

a people whose languagee you do not know,

whose speech you do not understand.
