Jeremiah 15:15-21Contemporary English Version (CEV)
Jeremiah Complains Again
15 You can see how I suffer insult after insult, all because of you, Lord. Don’t be so patient with my enemies; take revenge on them before they kill me.
16 When you spoke to me, I was glad to obey, because I belong to you, the Lord All-Powerful. 17 I don’t go to parties and have a good time. Instead, I keep to myself, because you have filled me with your anger.
18 I am badly injured and in constant pain. Are you going to disappoint me, like a stream that goes dry in the heat of summer?
The Lord Replies
19 Then the Lord told me: Stop talking like a fool! If you turn back to me and speak my message, I will let you be my prophet once again. I hope the people of Judah will accept what you say. But you can ignore their threats, 20 because I am making you strong, like a bronze wall. They are evil and violent, but when they attack, 21 I will be there to rescue you. I, the Lord, have spoken.
