They said, "Come, let's make plans1 against Jeremiah; for the teaching of the law by the priest2 will not cease, nor will counsel from the wise,3 nor the word from the prophets.4 So come, let's attack him with our tongues5 and pay no attention to anything he says."
So give their children over to famine;11 hand them over to the power of the sword.12 Let their wives be made childless and widows;13 let their men be put to death, their young men14 slain by the sword in battle.
But you, LORD, know all their plots to kill18 me. Do not forgive19 their crimes or blot out their sins from your sight. Let them be overthrown before you; deal with them in the time of your anger.20
