Jeremiah 9:23-25 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

23 But rather, let those who boast, boast of this,
    that in their prudence they know me,
Know that I, the Lord, act with fidelity,
    justice, and integrity on earth.
How I take delight in these—oracle of the Lord.

False Circumcision. 24 See, days are coming—oracle of the Lord—when I will demand an account of all those circumcised in the foreskin: 25 Egypt and Judah, Edom and the Ammonites, Moab, and those who live in the wilderness and shave their temples.[a] For all the nations are uncircumcised, even the whole house of Israel is uncircumcised at heart.


  1. 9:25 Shave their temples: some Arabian tribes practiced this custom. None of the nations who practice circumcision understand the meaning of their action, not even Israel; no one conforms to life under the covenant.
