Jeremiah 15:14-16 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

14 And I will make you serve your enemies
    in a land that you do not know,
for a fire will kindle in my anger.
    Upon you it will be kindled.”
15 You who know, O Yahweh, remember me, and attend to me,
    and take revenge for me against my persecutors in your forbearance.[a]
You must take me away.
    Know that I am carrying disgrace because of you.
16 Your words were found and I ate them,
    and your words became to me as jubilation,
even as the joy of my heart,
    for your name is called on me, O Yahweh God of hosts.

14 I will enslave you to your enemies
    in[a] a land you do not know,
for my anger will kindle a fire
    that will burn against you.”

15 Lord, you understand;
    remember me and care for me.
    Avenge me on my persecutors.
You are long-suffering—do not take me away;
    think of how I suffer reproach for your sake.
16 When your words came, I ate them;
    they were my joy and my heart’s delight,
for I bear your name,
    Lord God Almighty.
