32 16 "After I had given the deed of purchase to Baruch the son of Neri'ah, I prayed to the LORD, saying: 32 17 'Ah Lord GOD! It is thou who hast made the heavens and the earth by thy great power and by thy outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for thee, 32 18 who showest steadfast love to thousands, but dost requite the guilt of fathers to their children after them, O great and mighty God whose name is the LORD of hosts, 32 19 great in counsel and mighty in deed; whose eyes are open to all the ways of men, rewarding every man according to his ways and according to the fruit of his doings; 32 20 who hast shown signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, and to this day in Israel and among all mankind, and hast made thee a name, as at this day. 32 21 Thou didst bring thy people Israel out of the land of Egypt with signs and wonders, with a strong hand and outstretched arm, and with great terror; 32 22 and thou gavest them this land, which thou didst swear to their fathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey; 32 23 and they entered and took possession of it. But they did not obey thy voice or walk in thy law; they did nothing of all thou didst command them to do. Therefore thou hast made all this evil come upon them. 32 24 Behold, the siege mounds have come up to the city to take it, and because of sword and famine and pestilence the city is given into the hands of the Chalde'ans who are fighting against it. What thou didst speak has come to pass, and behold, thou seest it. 32 25 Yet thou, O Lord GOD, hast said to me, "Buy the field for money and get witnesses" - though the city is given into the hands of the Chalde'ans.'"
32 26 The word of the LORD came to Jeremiah: 32 27 "Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh; is anything too hard for me?
32 28 Therefore, thus says the LORD: Behold, I am giving this city into the hands of the Chalde'ans and into the hand of Nebuchadrez'zar king of Babylon, and he shall take it. 32 29 The Chalde'ans who are fighting against this city shall come and set this city on fire, and burn it, with the houses on whose roofs incense has been offered to Ba'al and drink offerings have been poured out to other gods, to provoke me to anger. 32 30 For the sons of Israel and the sons of Judah have done nothing but evil in my sight from their youth; the sons of Israel have done nothing but provoke me to anger by the work of their hands, says the LORD. 32 31 This city has aroused my anger and wrath, from the day it was built to this day, so that I will remove it from my sight 32 32 because of all the evil of the sons of Israel and the sons of Judah which they did to provoke me to anger - their kings and their princes, their priests and their prophets, the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 32 33 They have turned to me their back and not their face; and though I have taught them persistently they have not listened to receive instruction. 32 34 They set up their abominations in the house which is called by my name, to defile it. 32 35 They built the high places of Ba'al in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to offer up their sons and daughters to Molech, though I did not command them, nor did it enter into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.
