Jeremiah 21:10

Context
21:10 For I, the Lord, say that 1  I am determined not to deliver this city but to bring disaster on it. 2  It will be handed over to the king of Babylon and he will destroy it with fire.’” 3 

1 tn Heb “oracle of the Lord.”

2 tn Heb “I have set my face against this city for evil [i.e., disaster] and not for good [i.e., well-being].” For the use of the idiom “set one’s face against/toward” see, e.g., usage in 1 Kgs 2:15; 2 Kgs 2:17; Jer 42:15, 17 and note the interesting interplay of usage in Jer 44:11-12.

3 tn Heb “he will burn it with fire.”
