Unpopular Verse of the Day

“Baruch, this is what the LORD says: ‘I will destroy this nation that I built. I will uproot what I planted. 5 Are you seeking great things for yourself? Don’t do it! I will bring great disaster upon all these people; but I will give you your life as a reward wherever you go. I, the LORD, have spoken!'”
Jeremiah 45:4-5 NLT

The whole book of Jeremiah needs to be read for context of course. Baruch was Jeremiah’s “dictator”. (He wrote down what the LORD said to Jeremiah.) So God spared the lives of those two, but told them not to look for a life of comfort.

This is the same book that Jeremiah 29:11 is in. See Jeremiah 29:11 | Scripture Zealot including the comments.
