Jeremiah 10:23-25

Jeremiah's prayer

23 I know, Lord, that you give life to each man.

Only you can say where he should walk.

24 Please lead me back to the right path, Lord, but be fair to me.

Do not be angry with me.

If you become angry, you might completely destroy me.

25 Be angry, Lord, with the people in the countries that do not honour you.

Be angry with the nations who do not ask you to lead them.

The people in those countries have completely destroyed your people,

the descendants of Jacob.

They have destroyed the country that you gave to your people.
