Jeremiah 4:4 New English Translation (NET Bible)

Commit yourselves to the Lord;
dedicate your hearts to me[a]
people of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem.
Otherwise, my anger will blaze up like a flaming fire against you
that no one will be able to extinguish.
That will happen because of the evil you have done.”
