Jeremiah 12:16-17 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
16 Suppose they learn carefully the ways of my people. Suppose they take an oath in my name, ‘As the Lord lives . . .’ as they taught my people to take an oath in the name of Baal. Then they will build homes among my people. 17 But suppose they don’t listen. Then I will uproot that nation and destroy it,” declares the Lord.
