Jeremiah 14:11-12

Context
Judgment for Believing the Misleading Lies of the False Prophets

14:11 Then the Lord said to me, “Do not pray for good to come to these people! 1  14:12 Even if they fast, I will not hear their cries for help. Even if they offer burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them. 2  Instead, I will kill them through wars, famines, and plagues.” 3 

1 tn Heb “on behalf of these people for benefit.”

2 sn See 6:16-20 for parallels.

3 tn Heb “through sword, starvation, and plague.”

sn These were penalties (curses) that were to be imposed on Israel for failure to keep her covenant with God (cf. Lev 26:23-26). These three occur together fourteen other times in the book of Jeremiah.
