"Therefore, this is what the Lord God says: Like the wood of the vine among the trees of the forest, which I have given to the fire as fuel, so I will give up the residents of Jerusalem.
I will turn against them. They may have escaped from the fire, but it will [still] consume them. And you will know that I am the LORD when I turn against them.
and say to the forest there: Hear the word of the LORD! This is what the Lord God says: I am about to ignite a fire in you, and it will devour every green tree and every dry tree in you. The blazing flame will not be extinguished, and every face from the south to the north will be scorched by it.
Then all people will see that I, Yahweh, have kindled it. It will not be extinguished."
Just as one gathers silver, copper, iron, lead, and tin into the furnace to blow fire on them and melt them, so I will gather [you] in My anger and wrath, put you [inside], and melt you.
Yes, I will gather you together and blow on you with the fire of My fury, and you will be melted within the city.
As silver is melted inside a furnace, so you will be melted inside the city. Then you will know that I, the LORD, have poured out My wrath on you."
For the LORD your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.
The LORD will not be willing to forgive him. Instead, His anger and jealousy will burn against that person, and every curse written in this scroll will descend on him. The LORD will blot out his name under heaven,
For fire has been kindled because of My anger and burns to the depths of Sheol; it devours the land and its produce, and scorches the foundations of the mountains.
He burned the LORD's temple, the king's palace, and all the houses of Jerusalem; he burned down all the great houses.
You will make them [burn] like a fiery furnace when you appear; the LORD will engulf them in His wrath, and fire will devour them.
Our God is coming; He will not be silent! Devouring fire precedes Him, and a storm rages around Him.
Indeed! Topheth has been ready for the king for a long time now. His funeral pyre is deep and wide, with plenty of fire and wood. The breath of the LORD, like a torrent of brimstone, kindles it.
House of David, this is what the LORD says: Administer justice every morning, and rescue the victim of robbery from the hand of his oppressor, or My anger will flare up like fire and burn unquenchably because of their evil deeds.
Who can withstand His indignation? Who can endure His burning anger? His wrath is poured out like fire, even rocks are shattered before Him.
Their silver and their gold will not be able to rescue them on the day of the LORD's wrath. The whole earth will be consumed by the fire of His jealousy. For He will make a complete, yes, a horrifying end of all the inhabitants of the earth.
As smoke is blown away, so You blow [them] away. As wax melts before the fire, so the wicked are destroyed before God.
The wicked man will see [it] and be angry; he will gnash his teeth in despair. The desire of the wicked will come to nothing.
as fire kindles the brushwood, and fire causes water to boil-- to make Your name known to Your enemies, so that nations will tremble at Your presence!
No one calls on Your name, striving to take hold of You. For You have hidden Your face from us and made us melt because ofour iniquity.
Therefore, this is what the LORD of Hosts says: I am about to refine them and test them, for what else can I do because of My dear people?
