A Warning for the People of Anathoth

18 Moreover, Yahweh let [it be] made known to me, and I knew. Then you showed me their deeds. 19 And I [was] like a gentle ram-lamb that is brought to slaughter, and I did not know that they planned plans against me, [saying], "Let us destroy the tree with its fruit, and let us cut him off from [the] land of [the] living, so that his name will no longer be remembered." 20 But [O] Yahweh of hosts, who judges [in] righteousness, who tests [the] {inmost being},a and [the] {mind},b let me see your retribution upon them, for to you I have revealed my legal case. 21 {Therefore}c thus says Yahweh concerning the peopled of Anathoth who seek your life, {saying},e "You shall not prophesy in the name of Yahweh {or}f you will die by our hand." 22 {Therefore}g thus says Yahweh of hosts: "Look, I [am about to] punish them. The young men will die by the sword. Their sons and their daughters will die by the famine. 23 And a remnant will not be [left] for them, for I will bring disaster to the peopleh of Anathoth, the year of their punishment."
