Jeremiah 21:12 (NIV)

This is what the Lord says to you, house of David:

‘“Administer justice every morning;
rescue from the hand of the oppressor
the one who has been robbed,
or my wrath will break out and burn like fire
because of the evil you have done –
burn with no one to quench it.

Who can enter our refuge?’
