Jeremiah 12:1-4 King James Version

Jeremiah's Complaint and God's Answer

12 1  Righteous art thou, O Lord, when I plead with thee: yet let me talk [1] with thee of thy judgments: Wherefore doth the way of the wicked prosper? wherefore are all they happy that deal very treacherously? 2  Thou hast planted them, yea, they have taken root: they grow, [2] yea, they bring forth fruit: thou art near in their mouth, and far from their reins. 3  But thou, O Lord, knowest me: thou hast seen me, and tried mine heart toward thee: pull them out like sheep for the slaughter, and prepare them for the day of slaughter. 4  How long shall the land mourn, and the herbs of every field wither, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein? the beasts are consumed, and the birds; because they said, He shall not see our last end.


[1] 12:1 talk...: or, reason the case with thee

[2] 12:2 they grow: Heb. they go on
