Jeremiah 6:27 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

27 [a]A tester for my people I have appointed you,
    to search and test their way.

Footnotes:

  1. 6:27–30 God appoints Jeremiah to be a “tester” of his people. The passage uses the metaphor of the refining of silver: the silver was extracted from lead ore, but the process in ancient times was inexact, so that sometimes all that was left was a scummy mess, to be thrown out.
