  • @AffableGeek Yes, but that advice works better when you actually have the proper text, not a paraphrase like this one. While I agree that this is referring to Jer. 16:18, that verse isn't mentioned in most of the Google results I find searching the page. Heck, searching the exact phrase only finds this question and something about Israelis finding a cure for ALS.

You may be thinking of Jeremiah 16:18:

I will repay them double for their wickedness and their sin, because they have defiled my land with the lifeless forms of their vile images and have filled my inheritance with their detestable idols.


That's the closest thing I was able to come up with on a BibleHub.com search.

  • Hi God bless you, thanks for your help. Another brother told me Revelation 11;18 "...& should destroy those who destroy the earth". A long time ago I remember reading something similar to "before man destroys the earth I (God) will intervene..." I will keep searching, Gbu. Sep 10, 2014 at 6:47
