Jeremiah: The Eternal revealed to me the plans of my enemies.
        Then You showed me what they wanted to do.
19     I was like an unsuspecting lamb led to its slaughter.
        I had no idea they were plotting against me. They were saying,
    “Let’s cut down that lush olive tree and destroy all its beautiful fruit.[a]
        Let’s cut him off from the land of the living.
    Let’s make sure no one even remembers his name.”
20     But You, Eternal, Commander of heavenly armies, You who judge fairly,
        You know the heart and the mind.
    Let me see Your vengeance exacted against them;
        I am entrusting my cause, my future to You.
