Jeremiah 12:16-17 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
16 And if they truly learn my people’s custom of swearing by my name, “As the Lord lives,” just as they taught my people to swear by Baal, then they shall be built up in the midst of my people. 17 But if they do not obey, I will uproot and destroy that nation entirely—oracle of the Lord.
