Jeremiah 17:12-18 BBE

12 A seat of glory, placed on high from the first, is our holy place.
13 O Lord, the hope of Israel, all who give you up will be put to shame; those who go away from you will be cut off from the earth, because they have given up the Lord, the fountain of living waters.
14 Make me well, O Lord, and I will be well; be my saviour, and I will be safe: for you are my hope.
15 See, they say to me, Where is the word of the Lord? let it come now.
16 As for me, I have not said; Let the day of trouble come to them quickly; and I have not been hoping for the death-giving day; you have knowledge of what came from my lips; it was open before you.
17 Be not a cause of fear to me: you are my safe place in the day of evil.
18 Let them be put to shame who are attacking me, but let me not be shamed; let them be overcome with fear, but let me not be overcome: send on them the day of evil, and put them to destruction twice over.
