The destruction of Jerusalem (Jer 21:10-21:10)

“Says Yahweh.

‘I have set my face

Against this city.

For evil!

Not for good!

It shall be given

Into the hands

Of the king

Of Babylon.

He shall burn it with fire.’”

There is no choice for the city of Jerusalem. Yahweh has set his face against this city. It is evil, not good. Therefore it will be given into the hands of the king of Babylon. He would then burn it down.
