Jeremiah's Prayer and God's Answer

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 15:15 - You who know, O LORD,

Know that for Your sake I endure reproach.

And my wound incurable, refusing to be healed?
Will You indeed be to me like a deceptive stream
With water that is unreliable?

“If you return, then I will restore you—

But as for you, you must not turn to them.
