I will prepare destroyers against you,
each with his weapons,
and they will cut down your choice cedars
and cast them into the fire. Bible

“against you.” Against the king’s palace. God started speaking about the palace in Jeremiah 22:6, and continues here in Jeremiah 22:7. The “choice cedars” are the choice cedar panels and boards of which the palace was constructed; Judah did not have cedar trees. The kings palace ended up being burned down, even as Jeremiah had foretold (2 Kings 25:9).
