Judgment on Judah
Thus says the Lord:
n "For three transgressions of Judah,
and for four, I will not revoke the punishment,
because o they have rejected the law of the Lord,
and have not kept his statutes,
but p their lies have led them astray,
those after which their fathers walked.
So q I will send a fire upon Judah,
and it shall devour the strongholds of Jerusalem."

Thus says the Lord : "For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four, I will not revoke the punishment, because they have threshed Gilead with threshing sledges of iron.

Jeremiah 16:19 - 20
O Lord, my strength and my stronghold, my refuge in the day of trouble, to you shall the nations come from the ends of the earth and say: "Our fathers have inherited nothing but lies, worthless things in which there is no profit.
Because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.
But if you do not listen to me, to keep the Sabbath day holy, and not to bear a burden and enter by the gates of Jerusalem on the Sabbath day, then I will kindle a fire in its gates, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem and shall not be quenched.'
For Israel has forgotten his Maker and built palaces, and Judah has multiplied fortified cities; so I will send a fire upon his cities, and it shall devour her strongholds.
