Plots against Jeremiah

18 Moreover, the LORD 1made it known to me and I knew it; Then You showed me their deeds.
19 But I was like a gentle 2lamb led to the slaughter; And I did not know that they had 3devised plots against me, saying, "Let us destroy the tree with its fruit, And 4let us cut him off from the 5land of the living, That his 6name be remembered no more."
20 But, O LORD of hosts, who 7judges righteously, Who 8tries the feelings and the heart, Let me see Your vengeance on them, For to You have I committed my cause.
21 Therefore thus says the LORD concerning the men of 9Anathoth, who 10seek your life, saying, "11Do not prophesy in the name of the LORD, so that you will not 12die at our hand ";
22 therefore, thus says the LORD of hosts, "Behold, I am about to 13punish them! The 14young men will die by the sword, their sons and daughters will die by famine;
23 and a remnant 15will not be left to them, for I will 16bring disaster on the men of Anathoth -17the year of their punishment."
