New International Version
8 “‘But like the bad(A) figs, which are so bad they cannot be eaten,’ says the Lord, ‘so will I deal with Zedekiah(B) king of Judah, his officials(C) and the survivors(D) from Jerusalem, whether they remain in this land or live in Egypt.(E) 9 I will make them abhorrent(F) and an offense to all the kingdoms of the earth, a reproach and a byword,(G) a curse[a](H) and an object of ridicule, wherever I banish(I) them. 10 I will send the sword,(J) famine(K) and plague(L) against them until they are destroyed from the land I gave to them and their ancestors.(M)’”
- Jeremiah 24:9 That is, their names will be used in cursing (see 29:22); or, others will see that they are cursed.
