Come on and let us strike at him with our tongue, and let us give no heed to any of his words." NIV 18 They said, “Come, let’s make plans against Jeremiah; for the teaching of the law by the priest will not cease, nor will counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophets. So come, let’s attack him with our tongues and pay no attention to anything he says.” NAS 19 Do give heed to me, O LORD , And listen to what my opponents are saying!

But may they be overthrown before You; Deal with them in the time of Your anger! NIV 23 But you, LORD, know all their plots to kill me.
