“… take some large stones in your hands and hide them in mortar in the brick terrace … and say to them, “Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, ‘Behold I am going to send Nebuchadnezzar the King of Babylon, my servant, and I am going to set his throne right over these stones that I have hidden.’ ” — Jeremiah 43:9–10

What the people don’t want laying waste to their fidelity,
their readiness, as it were, linked to the destruction, being
principal parts, seeds of His wrath,

and gifted still with younger versions of themselves,
they’ll know soon what is set in deep resistance,
their hearts opened, rendered split. In the plainest terms of sight

He has pronounced no recess will be hidden:
He will lift a king above the foundation. He will ready
yet another King as surely as He raised him.
