Jeremiah 11:15-17 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

15 What right does my beloved have
to be in my house,
having carried out so many evil schemes?
Can holy meat[a] prevent your disaster[b]
so you can celebrate?
16 The Lord named you
a flourishing olive tree,
beautiful with well-formed fruit.
He has set fire to it,
and its branches are consumed[c]
with the sound of a mighty tumult.

17 “The Lord of Armies who planted you has decreed disaster against you, because of the disaster[d] the house of Israel and the house of Judah brought on themselves when they angered me by burning incense to Baal.”


  1. 11:15 = sacrificial meat
  2. 11:15 LXX; MT reads meat pass from you
  3. 11:16 Vg; MT reads broken
  4. 11:17 Or evil

Jeremiah 11:15-17 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

15 What right has my beloved in my house, when she has done vile deeds? Can vows[a] and sacrificial flesh avert your doom? Can you then exult? 16 The Lord once called you, “A green olive tree, fair with goodly fruit”; but with the roar of a great tempest he will set fire to it, and its branches will be consumed. 17 The Lord of hosts, who planted you, has pronounced evil against you, because of the evil that the house of Israel and the house of Judah have done, provoking me to anger by making offerings to Baal.
