Jeremiah 22:16-18 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

16 He defended the cause of the poor and needy.
    Everything went well for him.
Isn’t this what it means to know me?” asks the Lord.
17 “But your eyes and your mind are set on nothing but dishonest profits.
    You kill innocent people and violently oppress your people.”

18 This is what the Lord says about Jehoiakim, son of Judah’s King Josiah:

People won’t mourn for him and say,
    “How horrible it is for my brother and sister!”
They won’t mourn for him and say,
    “How horrible it is for my master and his splendor!”
