Then Jeremiah asked King Zedekiah, “What crime have I committed against you, or the officials who serve you, or the people of Judah? What have I done to make you people throw me into prison?
To this day your people
You have not kept charge of my holy things, but you have assigned foreigners
but I have prayed for you, Simon,
I sent you to reap what you did not work for; others have labored and you have entered into their labor.”
If you have known me, you will know my Father too.
But now, freed
But you have a few individuals
You have been rebelling against him
“If I have put my confidence in gold or said to pure gold, ‘You are my security!’
For you defended my just cause;
The nations fell
As for the actions of people
For you deliver
We have not been unfaithful,
You made the earth quake; you split it open.
They set your sanctuary on fire; they desecrate your dwelling place by knocking it to the ground.
For you, O Lord, have made me happy by your work. I will sing for joy because of what you have done.
