Jeremiah 11:14-16 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

14 “As for you, do not pray for these people. Do not raise up a cry or a prayer on their behalf, for I will not be listening when they call out to Me at the time of their disaster.

15 What right does My beloved have
to be in My house,
having carried out so many evil schemes?
Can holy meat[a] prevent your disaster[b]
so you can rejoice?
16 The Lord named you
a flourishing olive tree,
beautiful with well-formed fruit.
He has set fire to it,
and its branches are consumed[c]
with a great roaring sound.


  1. Jeremiah 11:15 = sacrificial meat
  2. Jeremiah 11:15 LXX; MT reads meat pass from you
