New International Version
11 Therefore this is what the Lord says: ‘I will bring on them a disaster(A) they cannot escape.(B) Although they cry(C) out to me, I will not listen(D) to them. 12 The towns of Judah and the people of Jerusalem will go and cry out to the gods to whom they burn incense,(E) but they will not help them at all when disaster(F) strikes. 13 You, Judah, have as many gods(G) as you have towns;(H) and the altars you have set up to burn incense(I) to that shameful(J) god Baal are as many as the streets of Jerusalem.’
15 “What is my beloved doing in my temple
as she, with many others, works out her evil schemes?
Can consecrated meat(M) avert your punishment?(N)
When you engage in your wickedness,
then you rejoice.[a]”
- Jeremiah 11:15 Or Could consecrated meat avert your punishment? / Then you would rejoice
