The house of Judah might learn something (Jer 36:3-36:3)

“It may be that

When the house of Judah

Hears of all the disasters

That I intend

To do to them,

All of them

May turn

From their evil ways.

Then I may forgive

Their iniquity.

I may forgive

Their sins.”

Yahweh was hoping that when the people of Judah heard all his oracles to Jeremiah about the many impending disasters that he was intending for them, they might turn away from their evil ways. If they did that, then Yahweh would forgive their iniquity and their sins. Good luck!
