11 “Moreover, say to the royal house(A) of Judah, ‘Hear the word of the Lord. 12 This is what the Lord says to you, house of David:

“‘Administer justice(B) every morning;
    rescue from the hand of the oppressor(C)
    the one who has been robbed,
or my wrath will break out and burn like fire(D)
    because of the evil(E) you have done—
    burn with no one to quench(F) it.
13 I am against(G) you, Jerusalem,
    you who live above this valley(H)
    on the rocky plateau, declares the Lord
you who say, “Who can come against us?
    Who can enter our refuge?”(I)
14 I will punish you as your deeds(J) deserve,
    declares the Lord.
I will kindle a fire(K) in your forests(L)
    that will consume everything around you.’”
