Unchecked Copy BoxJer 44:17 - “But we will certainly carry out every word that has proceeded from our mouths, [fn]by burning [fn]sacrifices to the queen of heaven and pouring out drink offerings to her, just as we ourselves, our forefathers, our kings, and our leaders did in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem; for then we had plenty of [fn]food and were well off and saw no [fn]misfortune.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 44:22 - “So the LORD was no longer able to endure it, because of the evil of your deeds, because of the abominations which you have committed; so your land has become a place of ruins, an object of horror, and a curse, without an inhabitant, as it is this day.
Unchecked Copy BoxJer 44:23 - “Since you have burned [fn]sacrifices and have sinned against the LORD and not obeyed the voice of the LORD nor walked in His Law, His statutes, or His testimonies, therefore this disaster has happened to you, as it has this day.”
