Jeremiah 17:13-15 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

13 Lord, you are the hope of Israel.
    You are like a spring of living water.
Those who stop following the Lord
    will have a very short life.[a]

Jeremiah’s Third Complaint

14 Lord, if you heal me, I surely will be healed.
    Save me, and I surely will be saved.
    Lord, I praise you!
15 The people of Judah continue to ask me questions.
    They say, “Jeremiah, what about the message from the Lord?
    Let’s see that message come true.”


  1. Jeremiah 17:13 will have a very short life Literally, “he will be written in the dirt.” This might mean that a person’s name was written on a list of people who would soon die, or that a person’s life will soon be gone—like a name written in the sand.
