But, O LORD Almighty, you who judge righteously1 and test the heart2 and mind,3 let me see your vengeance4 upon them, for to you I have committed my cause.
"Therefore this is what the LORD says about the men of Anathoth5 who are seeking your life6 and saying, 'Do not prophesy7 in the name of the LORD or you will die8 by our hands'--
therefore this is what the LORD Almighty says: 'I will punish them. Their young men9 will die by the sword, their sons and daughters by famine.
Not even a remnant10 will be left to them, because I will bring disaster on the men of Anathoth in the year of their punishment.11' "
