Jeremiah 12:1-3

CSB 1 You will be righteous, Lord, even if I bring a case against You. Yet, I wish to contend with You: Why does the way of the wicked prosper? [Why] do the treacherous live at ease? NIV 1 You are always righteous, O LORD, when I bring a case before you. Yet I would speak with you about your justice: Why does the way of the wicked prosper? Why do all the faithless live at ease? CSB 2 You planted them, and they have taken root. They have grown and produced fruit. You are ever on their lips, but far from their conscience. NIV 2 You have planted them, and they have taken root; they grow and bear fruit. You are always on their lips but far from their hearts. CSB 3 As for You, You know me, Lord; You see me. You test whether my heart is with You. Drag the wicked away like sheep to slaughter, and set them apart for the day of killing. NIV 3 Yet you know me, O LORD; you see me and test my thoughts about you. Drag them off like sheep to be butchered! Set them apart for the day of slaughter!
