11 18 Yahweh made it known to me and I knew;
then you showed me their evil deeds.
11 19 But I was like a gentle lamb
led to the slaughter.
I did not know it was against me
they devised schemes, saying,
"Let us destroy the tree with its fruit,
let us cut him off from the land of the living,
that his name be remembered no more."
11 20 But, O Yahweh of hosts, who judges righteously,
who tries the heart and the mind,
let me see your vengeance upon them,
for to you have I committed my cause.
11 21 Therefore thus says Yahweh concerning the men of Anathoth, who seek your life, and say, "Do not prophesy in the name of Yahweh, or you will die by our hand" - 11 22 therefore thus says Yahweh of hosts: "Behold, I will punish them; the young men shall die by the sword; their sons and their daughters shall die by famine; 11 23 and none of them shall be left. For I will bring evil upon the men of Anathoth, the year of their punishment."
