14 Then I will make you serve your enemies[a]
in a land you do not know,
for my anger will kindle a fire
that will burn against you.(A)

Jeremiah’s Prayer for Vengeance

15 You know,(B) Lord;
remember me and take note of me.(C)
Avenge me against my persecutors.(D)
In your patience,[b] don’t take me away.
Know that I suffer disgrace for your honor.(E)
16 Your words were found, and I ate them.(F)
Your words became a delight to me
and the joy of my heart,
for I bear your name,(G)
Lord God of Armies.
