The punishment by Yahweh (Jer 23:39-23:40)

“Therefore,

I will surely lift you up.

I will cast you away

From my presence.

You!

The city

That I gave to you!

The city

That I gave to your ancestors!

I will bring upon you

Everlasting disgrace.

I will bring upon you

Perpetual shame

That shall not be forgotten.”

Yahweh, via Jeremiah, was clear. He was going to take them out of the city that he had given to them and their ancestors. He was casting them out of his presence. He was going to bring an everlasting disgrace upon them. There would be a perpetual shame upon them that would not be forgotten.
