The questioning people (Jer 16:10-16: 10)

“When you tell this people

All these words,

They will say to you.

‘Why has Yahweh pronounced

All this great evil against us?

What is our iniquity?

What is the sin

That we have committed

Against Yahweh our God?’”

Yahweh reminds Jeremiah that the people might not like what he tells them. They will then begin to question him. Why were all these bad things happening to them? What had they done? What sin had they committed against Yahweh, their God?
