Jeremiah 17:13-15 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

13 You are a spring of water
    giving Israel life and hope.
But if the people reject
    what you have told me,
they will be swept away
    like words written in dust.[a]

14 You, Lord, are the one I praise.
    So heal me and rescue me!
Then I will be completely well
    and perfectly safe.

15 The people of Judah say to me,
“Jeremiah, you claimed to tell us
    what the Lord has said.
So why hasn’t it come true?”
