Jeremiah 44:7-9 New English Translation (NET Bible)
7 “So now the Lord God of Heaven’s Armies, the God of Israel,[a] asks, ‘Why will you do such great harm to yourselves? Why should every man, woman, child, and baby of yours be destroyed from the midst of Judah? Why should you leave yourselves without a remnant? 8 That is what will result from your making me angry by what you are doing.[b] You are making me angry by sacrificing to other gods here in the land of Egypt where you live. You will be destroyed for doing that! You will become an example used in curses[c] and an object of ridicule among all the nations of the earth.[d] 9 Have you forgotten all the wicked things that have been done in the towns of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem by your ancestors, by the kings of Judah and their[e] wives, and by you and your wives?
