Letter of Jeremiah 58
It’s better to be a ruler who has courage or a household utensil that the owner can actually use than to be fake gods. The door of a house, which keeps safe the things that are in it, is better than fake gods. A wooden column in a palace is better than these fake gods.
Anyone who can will strip them of their gold and silver and of the robes they wear, and go off with this booty, and they will not be able to help themselves.
Anyone who can will strip them of their gold and silver and of the robes they wear, and go off with this booty, and they will not be able to help themselves.
Strong men will strip them of their gold and silver and of the robes they wear, and go off with this booty, and they will not be able to help themselves.
They shall take away gold, and silver and cloth(es), by which those be covered, and (then) they shall go away; neither they (be able to) help themselves. [They shall take away from them gold, and silver and clothing, by which they be covered, and they shall go away; neither they bear help to themselves.]
