Jeremiah

Torah

The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah in the days of Josiah, and in the first to twenty third years of Nebuchadrezzar, and in the beginning to the eleventh year of Zedekiah, and in the thirty seventh year of the captivity of Jehoiachin

Now in the nineteenth year of Nebuchadrezzar, Nebuzaradan, captain of the guard, came into Jerusalem and burned the House of the Lord.  And in the twenty third year of Nebuchadrezzar, Nebuzaradan carried the Jews away captive to Babylon, where they will serve the king of Babylon for seventy years, and it will come to pass, when the seventy years are accomplished, that God will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation.

Jeremiah 5:16
Their quiver [is] as an open sepulcher, they [are] all mighty men.

Jeremiah 5:17
And they will eat up your harvest, and your bread, [which] your sons and your daughters should eat, they will eat up your flocks and your herds, they will eat up your vines and your fig trees, they will impoverish your fenced cities, wherein you trusted, with the sword."

Jeremiah 5:18
"Nevertheless in those days," the Lord says, "I will not make a full end with you.

Jeremiah 5:19
And it will come to pass, when you will say, 'Why does the Lord our God do all these [things] to us?'  Then you will answer them, 'As you have forsaken Me, and served strange gods in your land, so will you serve strangers in a land [that is] not yours.

The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,

Jeremiah 7:2
"Stand in the gate of the Lord's House, and proclaim this word there, and say, 'Hear the word of the Lord, all [you of] Judah, who enter in at these gates to worship the Lord.

Jeremiah 7:3
Thus the Lord says, of hosts, the God of Israel, 'Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place.

Jeremiah 7:4
Do not trust in lying words, saying, 'The temple of the Lord, The temple of the Lord, The temple of the Lord, [are] these.'

Jeremiah 7:5
For if you amend your ways and your doings; if you execute judgment between a man and his neighbor;

Jeremiah 7:6
[If] you do not oppress the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt.

Jeremiah 7:7
Then I will cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, forever and ever.

Jeremiah 7:8
Behold, you trust in lying words that cannot profit.

Jeremiah 7:9
Will you steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense to Baal, and walk after other gods whom you do not know;

Jeremiah 7:10
And come and stand before Me in this House, which is called by My name, and say, 'We are delivered to do all these abominations?'
Jeremiah 7:11
Has this House, which is called by My name, become a den of robbers in your eyes?  Behold, even I have seen [it]," the Lord says.  *Matthew 21:13*Mark 11:17*Luke 19:46

Jeremiah 7:12
"But go now to My place which [was] in Shiloh, where I set My name at first, and see what I did to it for the wickedness of My people Israel.

Jeremiah 7:13
And now, because you have done all these works," the Lord says, "And I spoke to you, rising up early and speaking, but you did not hear; and I called you, but you did not answer;

Jeremiah 7:14
Therefore I will do to [this] House, which is called by My name, wherein you trust, and to the place which I gave to you and your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh.

Jeremiah 7:15
And I will cast you out of My sight, as I have cast out all your brethren, [even] the whole seed of Ephraim.

Jeremiah 7:16
Therefore do not pray for this people, neither lift up cry or prayer for them, neither make intercession to Me, for I will not hear you.

Jeremiah 7:17
Do you not see what they do in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem?

Jeremiah 7:18
The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead [their] dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings to other gods, that they may provoke Me to anger.

Jeremiah 7:19
Do they provoke Me to anger?"  The Lord says, "[Do they] not [provoke] themselves to the confusion of their own faces?"

Jeremiah 7:20
Therefore thus the Lord God says; "Behold, My anger and My fury will be poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it will burn, and will not be quenched."

Jeremiah 7:21
Thus the Lord of hosts says, the God of Israel; "Put your burnt offerings to your sacrifices, and eat flesh.

Jeremiah 7:22
For I did not speak to your fathers, nor command them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices.

Jeremiah 7:23
But this thing commanded I them, saying, 'Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you will be My people, and walk in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well to you.'  *Barnabas 2:7 - 8

Jeremiah 7:24
But they did not listen, nor incline their ear, but they walked in the counsels [and] in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.

Jeremiah 7:25
Since the day that your fathers came forth out of the land of Egypt to this day I have even sent to you all My servants the prophets, rising up early and sending [them] daily.

Jeremiah 7:26
Yet they did not listen to Me, nor incline their ear, but they hardened their neck, they did worse than their fathers.

Jeremiah 7:27
Therefore you will speak all these words to them; but they will not hear you, you will also call to them; but they will not answer you.

Jeremiah 7:28
But you will say to them, 'This [is] a nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God, nor receives correction, truth has perished, and is cut off from their mouth.

Jeremiah 7:29
Cut off your hair, [O Jerusalem], and cast [it] away, and take up a lamentation on high places; for the Lord has rejected and forsaken the generation of His wrath.

Jeremiah 7:30
For the Children of Judah have done evil in My sight,'" the Lord says, "They have set their abominations in the House which is called by My name, to pollute it.
Jeremiah 7:31
And they have built the high places of Tophet, which [is] in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire; which I did not command [them], neither did it come into My heart.  *6:137

Jeremiah 7:32
Therefore, behold, the days come," the Lord says, "That it will no longer be called Tophet, nor the valley of the son of Hinnom, but the valley of slaughter, for they will bury in Tophet, until there is no place.

Jeremiah 7:33
And the carcasses of this people will be meat for the fowls of the heaven, and for the beasts of the earth; and none will fray [them] away.

Jeremiah 7:34
Then I will cause the voice of mirth to cease from the cities of Judah, and from the streets of Jerusalem, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, for the land will be desolate.

Jeremiah 8:1
At that time," the Lord says, "They will bring out the bones of the kings of Judah, and the bones of his princes, and the bones of the priests, and the bones of the prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, out of their graves.

Jeremiah 8:2
And they will spread them before the sun, and the moon, and all the host of heaven, whom they have loved, and whom they have served, and after whom they have walked, and whom they have sought, and whom they have worshiped, they will not be gathered or buried; they will be for dung upon the face of the earth.

Jeremiah 8:3
And death will be chosen rather than life by all the residue of those who remain of this evil family, who remain in all the places where I have driven them," the Lord of hosts says.

Jeremiah 8:4
"Moreover you will say to them, 'Thus the Lord says; 'Should they fall, and not arise?  Will he turn away, and not return?

Jeremiah 8:5
Why [then] is this people of Jerusalem slidden back by a perpetual backsliding?  They hold fast deceit, they refuse to return.

Jeremiah 8:6
I listened and heard, [but] they did not speak aright, no man repented himself of his wickedness, saying, 'What have I done?'  Everyone turned to his course, as the horse rushes into the battle.

Jeremiah 8:7
Indeed, the stork in the heaven knows her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but My people do not know the judgment of the Lord.

Jeremiah 8:8
How do you say, 'We [are] wise, and the law of the Lord [is] with us?'  Behold, certainly in vain did he make [it]; the pen of the scribes [is] in vain.

Jeremiah 8:9
The wise [men] are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken, look, they have rejected the word of the Lord; and what wisdom [is] in them?

Jeremiah 8:10
Therefore I will give their wives to others, [and] their fields to those who will inherit [them], for everyone from the least even to the greatest is given to covetousness, from the prophet even to the priest, everyone deals falsely.

Jeremiah 8:11
For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of My people slightly, saying, 'Peace, peace;' when [there is] no peace.

Jeremiah 8:12
Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination?  No, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush, therefore they will fall among those who fall, in the time of their visitation they will be cast down,'" the Lord says.

Jeremiah 8:13
"I will surely consume them," the Lord says, "[There will be] no grapes on the vine, nor figs on the fig tree, and the leaf will fade; and [the things that] I have given to them will pass away from them.

Jeremiah 8:14
Why do we sit still?  Assemble yourselves, and let us enter into the defensed cities, and let us be silent there, for the Lord our God has put us to silence, and given us water of gall to drink, because we have sinned against the Lord.

Jeremiah 8:15
We looked for peace, but no good [came; and] for a time of health, and behold trouble!

Jeremiah 8:16
The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan, the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they have come, and have devoured the land, and all that is in it; the city, and those who dwell therein.

Jeremiah 8:17
For, behold, I will send serpents, cockatrices, among you, which [will] not [be] charmed, and they will bite you," the Lord says.

Jeremiah 8:18
[When] I would comfort myself against sorrow, my heart [is] faint in me.

Jeremiah 8:19
Behold the voice of the cry of the daughter of my people because of those who dwell in a far country, "[Is] the Lord not in Zion?  [Is] her king not in her?"  Why have they provoked me to anger with their graven images, [and] with strange vanities?

Jeremiah 8:20
The harvest has past, the summer has ended, and we are not saved.

Jeremiah 8:21
I am hurt for the hurt of the daughter of my people; I am black; astonishment has taken hold on me.

Jeremiah 8:22
[Is there] no balm in Gilead; [is there] no physician there?  Why then has the health of the daughter of my people not recovered?

Jeremiah 9:1
Oh that my head were waters, and my eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people!

Jeremiah 9:2
Oh that I had in the wilderness a lodging place of wayfaring men; that I might leave my people, and go from them!  For they [are] all adulterers, an assembly of treacherous men.

Jeremiah 9:3
"And they bend their tongues [like] their bow [for] lies, but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they do not know Me," the Lord says.

Jeremiah 9:4
"Take heed, everyone of his neighbor, and do not trust in any brother, for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbor will walk with slanders.

Jeremiah 9:5
And everyone will deceive his neighbor, and will not speak the truth, they have taught their tongue to speak lies, [and] weary themselves to commit iniquity.

Jeremiah 9:6
Your habitation [is] in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know Me," the Lord says.

Jeremiah 9:7
Therefore the Lord of hosts thus says, "Behold, I will melt them, and try them; for how will I do for the daughter of My people?

Jeremiah 9:8
Their tongue [is as] an arrow shot out; it speaks deceit, [one] speaks peaceably to his neighbor with his mouth, but in heart, he lays his wait.

Jeremiah 9:9
Should I not visit them for these [things]?"  The Lord says, will My soul not be avenged on such a nation as this?

Jeremiah 9:10
For the mountains, I will take up a weeping and wailing, and for the habitations of the wilderness, a lamentation, because they are burned up, so that none can pass through [them]; neither can [men] hear the voice of the cattle; both the fowl of the heavens and the beast have fled; they are gone.

Jeremiah 9:11
And I will make Jerusalem heaps, [and] a den of dragons; and I will make the cities of Judah desolate, without an inhabitant.

Jeremiah 9:12
Who [is] the wise man, who may understand this?  And [who is he] to whom the mouth of the Lord has spoken, that he may declare it, why the land perishes [and] is burned up like a wilderness, that none passes through?"

Jeremiah 9:13
And the Lord says, "Because they have forsaken My law which I set before them, and have not obeyed My voice, neither walked therein;

Jeremiah 9:14
But have walked after the imagination of their own heart, and after Baalim, which their fathers taught them."

Jeremiah 9:15
Therefore the Lord of hosts thus says, the God of Israel; "Behold, I will feed them, [even] this people, with wormwood, and give them water of gall to drink.

Jeremiah 9:16
I will scatter them also among the heathen, whom neither they or their fathers have known, and I will send a sword after them, until I have consumed them."

Jeremiah 9:17
Thus the Lord of hosts says, "Consider and call for the mourning women, that they may come; and send for cunning [women], that they may come."

Jeremiah 9:18
And let them make haste, and take up a wailing for us, that our eyes may run down with tears, and our eyelids gush out with waters.

Jeremiah 9:19
For a voice of wailing is heard out of Zion, 'How we are spoiled!  We are greatly confounded, because we have forsaken the land, because our dwellings have cast [us] out.'

Jeremiah 9:20
Yet hear the word of the Lord, O you women, and let your ear receive the word of His mouth, and teach your daughters wailing, and everyone her neighbor, lamentation.

Jeremiah 9:21
For death has come up into our windows, [and] has entered into our palaces, to cut off the children from outside, [and] the young men from the streets.

Jeremiah 9:22
"Speak," Thus the Lord says, "Even the carcasses of men will fall as dung upon the open field, and as the handful after the harvestman, and none will gather [them]."

Jeremiah 9:23
Thus the Lord says, "Do not let the wise [man] glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty [man] glory in his might, do not let the rich [man] glory in his riches.

Jeremiah 9:24
But let him who glories, glory in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I [am] the Lord who exercises loving kindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth, for I delight in these [things]," the Lord says.

Jeremiah 9:25
"Behold, the days come," the Lord says, "That I will punish all [those who are] circumcised only as to the foreskin;

Jeremiah 9:26
Egypt, and Judah, and Edom, and the children of Ammon, and Moab, and all [who are] in the utmost corners, who dwell in the wilderness, for all [these] nations [are] uncircumcised, and all the house of Israel [are] uncircumcised in the heart.

Jeremiah 10:1
Hear the word which the Lord speaks to you, O house of Israel."

Jeremiah 10:2
Thus the Lord says, "Do not learn the way of the heathen, and do not be dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.

Jeremiah 10:3
For the customs of the people [are] vain, for [one] cuts a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman with the axe.

Jeremiah 10:4
They deck it with silver and gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it does not move.

Jeremiah 10:5
They [are] upright as the palm tree, but do not speak, they need to be borne, because they cannot go.  Do not be afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither [is it] also in them to do good."

Jeremiah 10:6
Forasmuch as [there are] none like You, O Lord; You [are] great, and Your name [is] great in might.

Jeremiah 10:7
Who would not fear You, O King of nations?  For it appertains to You, forasmuch as among all the wise [men] of the nations, and in all their kingdoms, [there are] none like You.

Jeremiah 10:8
But they are altogether brutish and foolish, the stock [is] a doctrine of vanities.

Jeremiah 10:9
Silver spread into plates is brought from Tarshish, and gold from Uphaz, the work of the workman, and of the hands of the founder, blue and purple [are] their clothing, they [are] all the work of cunning [men].

Jeremiah 10:10
But the Lord [is] the true God, He [is] the living God, and an Everlasting King, the earth will tremble at His wrath, and the nations will not be able to abide His indignation.

Jeremiah 10:11
Thus you will say to them, 'The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, [even] they will perish from the earth, and from under these heavens.'

Jeremiah 10:12
He has made the earth by His power, He has established the world by His wisdom, and has stretched out the heavens by His discretion.

Jeremiah 10:13
When He utters His voice, [there is] a multitude of waters in the heavens, and He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; He makes lightnings with rain, and brings forth the wind out of His treasures.

Jeremiah 10:14
Every man is brutish in [his] knowledge, every founder is confounded by the graven image, for his molten image [is] falsehood, and [there is] no breath in them.

Jeremiah 10:15
They [are] vanity, [and] the work of errors, they will perish in the time of their visitation.

Jeremiah 10:16
The portion of Jacob [is] not like them, for He [is] the former of all [things]; and Israel [is] the rod of His inheritance, The Lord of hosts [is] His name.

Jeremiah 10:17
Gather up your wares out of the land, O inhabitant of the fortress."

Jeremiah 10:18
For the Lord thus says, "Behold, I will sling out the inhabitants of the land at once, and will distress them, that they may find [it so]."

Jeremiah 10:19
"Woe is me for my hurt!  My wound is grievous," but I said, "Truly this [is] grief, and I must bear it.

Jeremiah 10:20
My tabernacle is spoiled, and all my cords are broken, my children have gone forth of me, and they [are] not, [there are] none to stretch forth my tent anymore, and to set up my curtains.

Jeremiah 10:21
For the pastors have become brutish, and have not sought the Lord, therefore they will not prosper, and all their flocks will be scattered.

Jeremiah 10:22
Behold, the noise of the bruit has come, and a great commotion out of the north country, to make the cities of Judah desolate, [and] a den of dragons.

Jeremiah 10:23
O Lord, I know that the way of man [is] not in himself, [it is] not in man who walks to direct his steps.

Jeremiah 10:24
O Lord, correct me, but with judgment; not in Your anger, unless You bring me to nothing.

Jeremiah 10:25
Pour out Your fury upon the heathen who do not know, and upon the families who do not call on Your name, for they have eaten up Jacob, and devoured him, and consumed him, and have made his habitation desolate."

Jeremiah 11:1
The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,

Jeremiah 11:2
"Hear the words of this covenant, and speak to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem;

Jeremiah 11:3
And say to them, 'Thus the Lord says, God of Israel; 'Cursed [is] the man who does not obey the words of this covenant,

Jeremiah 11:4
Which I commanded your fathers in the day [that] I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, 'Obey My voice, and do them, according to all which I command you, so you will be My people, and I will be your God.

Jeremiah 11:5
That I may perform the oath which I have sworn to your fathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey, as [it is] this day.'"  Then I answered and said, "So be it, O Lord."

Jeremiah 11:6
Then the Lord said to me, "Proclaim all these words in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, saying, 'Hear the words of this covenant, and do them.'

Jeremiah 11:7
For I earnestly protested to your fathers in the day [that] I brought them up out of the land of Egypt, [even] to this day, rising early and protesting, saying, 'Obey My voice.'

Jeremiah 11:8
Yet they did not obey, nor incline their ear, but everyone walked in the imagination of their evil heart, therefore I will bring upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded [them] to do; but they did not do [them]."

Jeremiah 11:9
And the Lord said to me, "A conspiracy is found among the men of Judah, and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

Jeremiah 11:10
They have turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, who refused to hear My words; and they went after other gods to serve them, the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken My covenant which I made with their fathers."

Jeremiah 11:11
Therefore the Lord thus says, "Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they will not be able to escape; and though they will cry to Me, I will not hear them.
Jeremiah 11:12
Then the cities of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem will go, and cry to the gods to whom they offer incense, but they will not save them at all in the time of their trouble.  *11:101

Jeremiah 11:13
For your gods were [according to] the number of your cities, O Judah; and you have set up altars to [that] shameful thing [according to] the number of the streets of Jerusalem, [even] altars to burn incense to Baal.

Jeremiah 11:14
Therefore do not pray for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them, for I will not hear [them] in the time that they cry to Me for their trouble.

Jeremiah 11:15
What has My beloved to do in My House, [seeing] she has done lewdness with many, and the holy flesh has passed from you?  When you do evil, then you rejoice.

Jeremiah 11:16
The Lord called your name, a green olive tree, fair, [and] of good fruit, He has kindled fire upon it with the noise of a great tumult, and the branches of it are broken.

Jeremiah 11:17
For the Lord of hosts, who planted you, has pronounced evil against you, for the evil of the house of Israel and of the house of Judah, which they have done against themselves to provoke Me to anger in offering incense to Baal."

Jeremiah 11:18
And the Lord has given me knowledge [of it], and I know [it], then You showed me their doings.

Jeremiah 11:19
But I [was] like a lamb [or] an ox [that] is brought to the slaughter; and I did not know that they had devised devices against me, [saying], "Let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof, and let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name may be no longer remembered."

Jeremiah 11:20
But, O Lord of hosts, who judges righteously, who tests the reins and the heart, let me see Your vengeance on them, for I have revealed my cause to You."

Jeremiah 11:21
Therefore the Lord thus says of the men of Anathoth, who seek your life, saying, "Do not prophesy in the name of the Lord, that you do not die by our hand."

Jeremiah 11:22
Therefore the Lord of hosts thus says, "Behold, I will punish them, the young men will die by the sword; their sons and their daughters will die by famine.

Jeremiah 11:23
And there will be no remnant of them, for I will bring evil upon the men of Anathoth, [even] the year of their visitation."

Jeremiah 12:1
Righteous [are] You, O Lord, when I contend with You, yet let me talk with You of [Your] judgments, why does the way of the wicked prosper?  [Why] are all of them happy who deal very treacherously?

Jeremiah 12:2
You have planted them, indeed, they have taken root, they grow, indeed, they bring forth fruit, You [are] near in their mouth, and far from their reins.

Jeremiah 12:3
But You, O Lord, know me, You have seen me, and tested my heart toward You, pull them out like sheep for the slaughter, and prepare them for the day of slaughter.

Jeremiah 12:4
How long will the land mourn, and the herbs of every field wither, for the wickedness of those who dwell therein?  The beasts are consumed, and the birds; because they said, "He will not see our last end."

Jeremiah 12:5
If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, then how can you contend with horses?  And [if] in the land of peace, [wherein] you trusted, [they wearied you], then how will you do in the swelling of Jordan?

Jeremiah 12:6
For even your brethren, and the house of your father, even they have dealt treacherously with you; indeed, they have called a multitude after you, do not believe them, though they speak fair words to you.

Jeremiah 12:7
I have forsaken my house, I have left my heritage; I have given the dearly beloved of my soul into the hand of her enemies.

Jeremiah 12:8
My heritage is as a lion in the forest to me; it cries out against me, therefore I have hated it.

Jeremiah 12:9
My heritage [is] to me [as] a speckled bird, the birds around [are] against her; come, assemble all the beasts of the field, come to devour.

Jeremiah 12:10
Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness.

Jeremiah 12:11
They have made it desolate, [and being] desolate, it mourns to me; the whole land is made desolate, because no man lays [it] to heart.

Jeremiah 12:12
The spoilers are brought upon all high places through the wilderness, for the sword of the Lord will devour from the [one] end of the land even to the [other] end of the land, no flesh will have peace.

Jeremiah 12:13
They have sown wheat, but will reap thorns, they have put themselves to pain, [but] will not profit, and they will be ashamed of your revenues because of the fierce anger of the Lord.

Jeremiah 12:14
Thus the Lord says, "Against all My evil neighbors, who touch the inheritance which I have caused My people Israel to inherit; behold, I will pluck them out of their land, and pluck out the house of Judah from among them.

Jeremiah 12:15
And it will come to pass, that after I have plucked them out, I will return, and have compassion on them, and will bring them again, every man to his heritage, and every man to his land.

Jeremiah 12:16
And it will come to pass, if they will diligently learn the ways of My people, to swear by My name, The Lord lives; as they taught My people to swear by Baal; then they will be built in the midst of My people.

Jeremiah 12:17
But if they will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation," the Lord says.

Jeremiah 13:1
Thus the Lord says to me, "Go and get a linen girdle, and put it upon your loins, and do not put it in water."

Jeremiah 13:2
So I got a girdle according to the word of the Lord, and put [it] on my loins.

Jeremiah 13:3
And the word of the Lord came to me the second time, saying,

Jeremiah 13:4
"Take the girdle that you have got, which [is] upon your loins, and arise, go to Euphrates, and hide it there in a hole of the rock."

Jeremiah 13:5
So I went, and hid it by Euphrates, as the Lord commanded me.

Jeremiah 13:6
And it came to pass after many days, that the Lord said to me, "Arise, go to Euphrates, and take the girdle from there, which I commanded you to hide there."

Jeremiah 13:7
Then I went to Euphrates, and dug, and took the girdle from the place where I had hidden it, and, behold, the girdle was marred, it was profitable for nothing.

Jeremiah 13:8
Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

Jeremiah 13:9
"Thus the Lord says, 'After this manner I will mar the pride of Judah, and the great pride of Jerusalem.

Jeremiah 13:10
This evil people, who refuse to hear My words, who walk in the imagination of their heart, and walk after other gods, to serve them, and to worship them, will even be as this girdle, which is good for nothing.

Jeremiah 13:11
For as the girdle cleaves to the loins of a man, so have I caused the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah to cleave to Me,'" the Lord says; "That they might be for a people to Me, and for a name, and for a praise, and for a glory, but they would not hear.

Jeremiah 13:12
Therefore you will speak to them this word; 'Thus the Lord says, God of Israel, 'Every bottle will be filled with wine,' and they will say to you, 'Do we not certainly know that every bottle will be filled with wine?'

Jeremiah 13:13
Then you will say to them, 'Thus the Lord says, 'Behold, I will fill all the inhabitants of this land, even the kings who sit upon David's throne, and the priests, and the prophets, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, with drunkenness.

Jeremiah 13:14
And I will dash them one against another, even the fathers and the sons together,' the Lord says, 'I will not pity, nor spare, nor have mercy, but destroy them.'

Jeremiah 13:15
Hear and give ear; do not be proud, for the Lord has spoken.

Jeremiah 13:16
Give glory to the Lord your God, before He causes darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and, while you look for light, He turns it into the shadow of death, [and] makes [it] gross darkness.

Jeremiah 13:17
But if you will not hear it, my soul will weep in secret places for [your] pride; and my eye will weep sore, and run down with tears, because the Lord's flock is carried away captive."

Jeremiah 13:18
Say to the king and to the queen, "Humble yourselves, sit down, for your principalities will come down, [even] the crown of your glory.

Jeremiah 13:19
The cities of the south will be shut up, and none will open [them], Judah will be carried away captive, all of it, it will be wholly carried away captive.

Jeremiah 13:20
Lift up your eyes, and behold those who come from the north, where [is] the flock [that] was given to you, your beautiful flock?

Jeremiah 13:21
What will you say when He will punish you?  For you have taught them [to be] captains, [and] as a chief over you, will sorrows not take you, as a woman in travail?

Jeremiah 13:22
And if you say in your heart, 'Why do these things come upon me?'  For the greatness of your iniquity, your skirts are discovered, [and] your heels are made bare.

Jeremiah 13:23
Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots?  [Then] may you also do good, who are accustomed to do evil?

Jeremiah 13:24
Therefore I will scatter them as the stubble that passes away by the wind of the wilderness.

Jeremiah 13:25
This [is] your lot, the portion of your measures from Me," the Lord says; "Because you have forgotten Me, and trusted in falsehood.

Jeremiah 13:26
Therefore I will discover your skirts upon your face, that your shame may appear.

Jeremiah 13:27
I have seen your adulteries, and your neighings, the lewdness of your whoredom, [and] your abominations on the hills in the fields.  Woe to you, O Jerusalem!  Will you not be made clean?  When [will it] once [be]?"

Jeremiah 14:1
The word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah concerning the famine.

Jeremiah 14:2
Judah mourns, and the gates thereof languish; they are black to the ground; and the cry of Jerusalem has gone up.

Jeremiah 14:3
And their nobles have sent their little ones to the waters, they came to the pits, [and] found no water; they returned empty with their vessels; they were ashamed and confounded, and covered their heads.

Jeremiah 14:4
Because the ground is chapt, for there was no rain in the earth, the plowmen were ashamed, they covered their heads.

Jeremiah 14:5
Indeed, the hind also calved in the field, and forsook [it], because there was no grass.

Jeremiah 14:6
And the wild donkeys stood in the high places, they snuffed up the wind like dragons; their eyes failed because [there was] no grass.

Jeremiah 14:7
O Lord, though our iniquities testify against us, do [it] for Your name's sake, for our backslidings are many; we have sinned against You.

Jeremiah 14:8
O the hope of Israel, the Savior thereof in time of trouble, why should You be as a stranger in the land, and as a wayfaring man [who] turns aside to lodge for a night?

Jeremiah 14:9
Why should You be as an astonied man, as a mighty man [who] cannot save?  Yet You, O Lord, [are] in the midst of us, and we are called by Your name; do not leave us."

Jeremiah 14:10
Thus the Lord says to this people, "Thus they have loved to wander, they have not refrained their feet, therefore the Lord does not accept them; He will now remember their iniquity, and visit their sins."

Jeremiah 14:11
Then the Lord said to me, "Do not pray for this people for [their] good.

Jeremiah 14:12
When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and an oblation, I will not accept them, but I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence."

Jeremiah 14:13
Then I said, "Ah, Lord God!  Behold, the prophets say to them, 'You will not see the sword, neither will you have famine; but I will give you assured peace in this place.'"

Jeremiah 14:14
Then the Lord said to me, "The prophets prophesy lies in My name, I did not send them, neither have I commanded them, neither did I speak to them, they prophesy to you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nothing, and the deceit of their heart."

Jeremiah 14:15
Therefore the Lord thus says, "Concerning the prophets who prophesy in My name, and I did not send them, yet they say, 'Sword and famine will not be in this land;' those prophets will be consumed by sword and famine.

Jeremiah 14:16
And the people to whom they prophesy will be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword; and they will have none to bury them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters, for I will pour their wickedness upon them.

Jeremiah 14:17
Therefore you will say this word to them; 'Let my eyes run down with tears night and day, and do not let them cease, for the virgin daughter of my people is broken with a great breach, with a very grievous blow.

Jeremiah 14:18
If I go forth into the field, then behold the slain with the sword!  And if I enter into the city, then behold those who are sick with famine!  Indeed, both the prophet and the priest go about into a land that they do not know.

Jeremiah 14:19
Have You utterly rejected Judah?  Has Your soul loathed Zion?  Why have You struck us, and [there is] no healing for us?  We looked for peace, and [there is] no good; and for the time of healing, and behold trouble!

Jeremiah 14:20
We acknowledge, O Lord, our wickedness, [and] the iniquity of our fathers, for we have sinned against You.

Jeremiah 14:21
Do not abhor [us], for Your Name's sake, do not disgrace the Throne of Your glory, remember, do not break Your covenant with us.

Jeremiah 14:22
Are there [any] among the vanities of the Gentiles who can cause rain?  Or can the heavens give showers?  [Are] You not Him, O Lord our God?  Therefore we will wait upon You, for You have made all these [things].'"

Jeremiah 15:1
Then the Lord said to me, "Though Moses and Samuel stood before Me, [yet] My mind [could] not [be] toward this people, cast [them] out of My sight, and let them go forth.

Jeremiah 15:2
And it will come to pass, if they say to you, 'Where will we go forth?'  Then you will tell them, 'Thus the Lord says; 'Such who [are] for death, to death; and such who [are] for the sword, to the sword; and such who [are] for the famine, to the famine; and such who [are] for the captivity, to the captivity.'

Jeremiah 15:3
And I will appoint over them four kinds," the Lord says, "The sword to slay, and the dogs to tear, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the earth, to devour and destroy.

Jeremiah 15:4
And I will cause them to be removed into all kingdoms of the earth, because of Manasseh, the son of Hezekiah, king of Judah, for [that] which he did in Jerusalem.

Jeremiah 15:5
For who will have pity upon you, O Jerusalem?  Or who will bemoan you?  Or who will go aside to ask how you do?

Jeremiah 15:6
You have forsaken Me," the Lord says, "You have gone backward, therefore I will stretch out My hand against you, and destroy you; I am weary with repenting.

Jeremiah 15:7
And I will fan them with a fan in the gates of the land; I will bereave [them] of children, I will destroy My people, [since] they do not return from their ways.

Jeremiah 15:8
Their widows have increased above the sand of the seas to Me, I have brought a spoiler at noonday upon them, against the mother of the young men, I have caused [him] to fall upon it suddenly, and terrors upon the city.

Jeremiah 15:9
She who has borne seven languishes, she has given up the ghost; her sun has gone down while [it was] still day, she has been ashamed and confounded, and I will deliver the residue of them to the sword before their enemies," the Lord says.

Jeremiah 15:10
Woe is me, my mother, that you have borne me a man of strife and a man of contention to the whole earth!  I have neither lent on usury, nor men have lent to me on usury; [yet] every one of them curses me.

Jeremiah 15:11
The Lord said, "Verily it will be well with your remnant; verily I will cause the enemy to entreat you [well] in the time of evil and in the time of affliction.

Jeremiah 15:15
"O Lord, You know, remember me, and visit me, and revenge me of my persecutors; do not take me away in Your longsuffering, know that for Your sake I have suffered rebuke.

Jeremiah 15:16
Your words were found, and I ate them; and Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart, for I am called by Your name, O Lord God of hosts.
Jeremiah 15:17
I did not sit in the assembly of the mockers, nor rejoiced; I sat alone because of Your hand, for You have filled me with indignation.  *4:140

Jeremiah 15:18
Why is my pain perpetual, and my wound incurable, [which] refuses to be healed?  Will You be altogether to me as a liar, [and as] waters [that] fail?"

Jeremiah 15:19
Therefore the Lord thus says, "If you return, then I will bring you again, [and] you will stand before Me, and if you take forth the precious from the vile, you will be as My mouth, let them return to you; but do not return to them.

Jeremiah 15:20
And I will make you a fenced brazen wall to this people, and they will fight against you, but they will not prevail against you, for I [am] with you to save you and to deliver you," the Lord says.

Jeremiah 15:21
"And I will deliver you out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem you out of the hand of the terrible."

Jeremiah 16:1
The word of the Lord came also to me, saying,

Jeremiah 16:2
"You will not take a wife, neither will you have sons or daughters in this place."

Jeremiah 16:3
For thus the Lord says concerning the sons and concerning the daughters who are born in this place, and concerning their mothers who bore them, and concerning their fathers who fathered them in this land;

Jeremiah 16:4
"They will die of grievous deaths; they will not be lamented; neither will they be buried; [but] they will be as dung upon the face of the earth, and they will be consumed by the sword, and by famine; and their carcasses will be meat for the fowls of heaven, and for the beasts of the earth."

Jeremiah 16:5
For the Lord thus says, "Do not enter into the house of mourning, neither go to lament or bemoan them, for I have taken away My peace from this people," the Lord says, "[Even] loving kindness and mercies.

Jeremiah 16:6
Both the great and the small will die in this land, they will not be buried, neither will [men] lament for them, nor cut themselves, nor make themselves bald for them.

Jeremiah 16:7
Neither will [men] tear [themselves] for them in mourning, to comfort them for the dead; neither will [men] give them the cup of consolation to drink for their father or for their mother.

Jeremiah 16:8
You will not also go into the house of feasting, to sit with them to eat and to drink."

Jeremiah 16:9
For the Lord of hosts thus says, the God of Israel; "Behold, I will cause the voice of mirth to cease out of this place in your eyes, and in your days, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride.

Jeremiah 16:10
And it will come to pass, when you will show this people all these words, and they will say to you, 'Why has the Lord pronounced all this great evil against us?  Or what [is] our iniquity?  Or what [is] our sin that we have committed against the Lord our God?'

Jeremiah 16:11
Then you will say to them, 'Because your fathers have forsaken Me,' the Lord says, 'And have walked after other gods, and have served them, and have worshiped them, and have forsaken Me, and have not kept My law;

Jeremiah 16:12
And you have done worse than your fathers; for, behold, you walk, everyone after the imagination of his evil heart, that they may not hear Me.

Jeremiah 16:13
Therefore I will cast you out of this land into a land that you do not know, [neither] you or your fathers; and there you will serve other gods day and night; where I will not show you favor.

Jeremiah 16:14
Therefore, behold, the days come," the Lord says, "That it will no longer be said, 'The Lord lives, who brought up the Children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;'

Jeremiah 16:15
But, 'The Lord lives, who brought up the Children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands where He had driven them,' and I will bring them again into their land that I gave to their fathers.

Jeremiah 16:16

Jeremiah 16:17
For My eyes [are] upon all their ways, they are not hidden from My Face, neither is their iniquity hidden from My eyes.  *Book of Enoch 9:5*96:14

Jeremiah 16:18
And I will first recompense their iniquity and their sin double; because they have defiled My land, they have filled My inheritance with the carcasses of their detestable and abominable things."

Jeremiah 16:19
O Lord, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles will come to You from the ends of the earth, and will say, "Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and [things] wherein [there is] no profit.

Jeremiah 16:20
Should a man make gods to himself, and they [are] no gods?"

Jeremiah 16:21
"Therefore, behold, I will cause them to know this once, I will cause them to know My hand and My might; and they will know that My name [is] The Lord.

Jeremiah 17:1
The sin of Judah [is] written with a pen of iron, [and] with the point of a diamond, [it is] engraven upon the table of their heart, and upon the horns of your altars;

Jeremiah 17:2
While their children remember their altars and their groves by the green trees upon the high hills.

Jeremiah 17:3
O My mountain in the field, I will give your substance [and] all your treasures to the spoil, [and] your high places for sin, throughout all your borders.

Jeremiah 17:4
And you, even yourself, will discontinue from your heritage that I gave you; and I will cause you to serve your enemies in the land which you do not know, for you have kindled a fire in My anger, [which] will burn forever."

Jeremiah 17:5
Thus the Lord says; "Cursed [is] the man who trusts in man, and makes flesh his arm, and whose heart departs from the Lord.

Jeremiah 17:6
For he will be like the heath in the desert, and will not see when good comes; but will inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, [in] a salt land and not inhabited.

Jeremiah 17:7
Blessed [is] the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord.

Jeremiah 17:8
For he will be as a tree planted by the waters, and [who] spreads out her roots by the river, and will not see when heat comes, but her leaf will be green; and will not be careful in the year of drought, neither will cease from yielding fruit.

Jeremiah 17:9
The heart [is] deceitful above all [things], and desperately wicked, who can know it?

Jeremiah 17:10
I the Lord search the heart, [I] test the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, [and] according to the fruit of his doings.

Jeremiah 17:11
[As] the partridge sits [on eggs], and does not hatch [them]; [so] he who gets riches, and not by right, will leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end will be a fool."

Jeremiah 17:12
A glorious high throne from the beginning [is] the place of our sanctuary.

Jeremiah 17:13
O Lord, the hope of Israel, all who forsake You will be ashamed, [and] those who depart from me will be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the Lord, the fountain of living waters.

Jeremiah 17:14
Heal me, O Lord, and I will be healed; save me, and I will be saved, for You [are] my praise.

Jeremiah 17:15
Behold, they say to me, "Where [is] the word of the Lord?  Let it come now."

Jeremiah 17:16
As for me, I have not hastened from [being] a pastor to follow You, neither have I desired the woeful day; *13:6, *22:47, *29:53 You know, that which came out of my lips was [right] before You.

Jeremiah 17:17
Do not be a terror to me, You [are] my hope in the day of evil.

Jeremiah 17:18
Let them be confounded who persecute me, but do not let me be confounded, let them be dismayed, but do not let me be dismayed, bring upon them the day of evil, and destroy them with double destruction.

Jeremiah 17:19
Thus the Lord said to me; "Go and stand in the gate of the children of the people, whereby the kings of Judah come in, and by which they go out, and in all the gates of Jerusalem;

Jeremiah 17:20
And say to them, 'Hear the word of the Lord, you kings of Judah, and all Judah, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, who enter in by these gates.

Jeremiah 17:21
Thus the Lord says; 'Take heed to yourselves, and bear no burden on the sabbath day, nor bring [it] in by the gates of Jerusalem;

Jeremiah 17:22
Neither carry forth a burden out of your houses on the sabbath day, neither do any work, but make the sabbath day holy, as I commanded your fathers.'  *4:154

Jeremiah 17:23
But they did not obey, neither incline their ear, but they made their neck stiff, that they might not hear, nor receive instruction.

Jeremiah 17:24
And it will come to pass, if you diligently hear Me," the Lord says, "To bring in no burden through the gates of this city on the sabbath day, but make the sabbath day holy, to do no work therein;

Jeremiah 17:25
Then kings and princes will enter into the gates of this city, sitting upon the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, they and their princes, the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and this city will remain forever.

Jeremiah 17:26
And they will come from the cities of Judah, and from the places about Jerusalem, and from the land of Benjamin, and from the plain, and from the mountains, and from the south, bringing burnt offerings, and sacrifices, and meat offerings, and incense, and bringing sacrifices of praise, to the House of the Lord.

Jeremiah 17:27
But if you will not hear Me to make the sabbath day holy, and to not bear a burden, even entering in at the gates of Jerusalem on the sabbath day; then I will kindle a fire in the gates thereof, and it will devour the palaces of Jerusalem, and it will not be quenched."

Jeremiah 18:1
The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,

Jeremiah 18:2
"Arise, and go down to the potter's house, and there I will cause you to hear My words."

Jeremiah 18:3
Then I went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he did a work on the wheels.

Jeremiah 18:4
And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter, so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make [it].

Jeremiah 18:5
Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

Jeremiah 18:6
"O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter?"  The Lord says.  "Behold, as the clay [is] in the potter's hand, so [are] you in My hand, O house of Israel.

Jeremiah 18:7
[At what] instant I will speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy [it];

Jeremiah 18:8
If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turns from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do to them.

Jeremiah 18:9
And [at what] instant I will speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant [it];

Jeremiah 18:10
If it does evil in My sight, that it does not obey My voice, then I will repent of the good, whereby I said I would benefit them.

Jeremiah 18:11
Now therefore go, speak to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying, 'Thus the Lord says; 'Behold, I frame evil against you, and devise a device against you, return now, everyone from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good.'"

Jeremiah 18:12
And they said, "There is no hope, but we will walk after our own devices, and everyone will do the imagination of his evil heart."

Jeremiah 18:13
Therefore the Lord thus says; "Ask now among the heathen, who has heard such things, the virgin of Israel has done a very horrible thing.

Jeremiah 18:14
Will [a man] leave the snow of Lebanon [which comes] from the rock of the field?  [Or] will the cold flowing waters that come from another place be forsaken?

Jeremiah 18:15
Because My people have forgotten Me, they have burned incense to vanity, and they have caused themselves to stumble in their ways [from] the ancient paths, to walk in paths, [in] a way not cast up;

Jeremiah 18:16
To make their land desolate, [and] a perpetual hissing; everyone who passes thereby will be astonished and wag his head.

Jeremiah 18:17
I will scatter them as with an east wind before the enemy; I will show them the back, and not the face, in the day of their calamity."

Jeremiah 18:18
Then they said, "Come, and let us devise devices against Jeremiah; for the law will not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet.  Come, and let us strike him with the tongue, and let us not give heed to any of his words."

Jeremiah 18:19
"Give heed to me, O Lord, and hear the voice of those who contend with me.

Jeremiah 18:20
Should evil be recompensed for good?  For they have dug a pit for my soul.  Remember that I stood before You to speak good for them, [and] to turn away Your wrath from them.

Jeremiah 18:21
Therefore deliver up their children to the famine, and pour out their [blood] by the force of the sword; and let their wives be bereaved of their children, and [be] widows; and let their men be put to death; [let] their young men [be] slain by the sword in battle.

Jeremiah 18:22
Let a cry be heard from their houses, when You will bring a troop suddenly upon them, for they have dug a pit to take me, and hid snares for my feet.

Jeremiah 18:23
Yet, Lord, You know all their counsel against me to slay [me], do not forgive their iniquity, neither blot out their sin from Your sight, but let them be overthrown before You; deal [thus] with them in the time of Your anger."

Jeremiah 19:1
Thus the Lord says, "Go and get a potter's earthen bottle, and [take] of the ancients of the people, and of the ancients of the priests;

Jeremiah 19:2
And go forth to the valley of the son of Hinnom, which [is] by the entry of the east gate, and proclaim the words that I will tell you there,

Jeremiah 19:3
And say, 'Hear the word of the Lord, O kings of Judah, and inhabitants of Jerusalem; the Lord of hosts thus says, the God of Israel; 'Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, by which, whoever hears, his ears will tingle.

Jeremiah 19:4
Because they have forsaken Me, and have estranged this place, and have burned incense in it to other gods, whom neither they or their fathers have known, nor the kings of Judah, and have filled this place with the blood of innocents;
Jeremiah 19:5
They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire [for] burnt offerings to Baal, which I did not command, nor spoke [it], neither did [it] come into My mind. *6:137

Jeremiah 19:6
Therefore, behold, the days come,' the Lord says, 'That this place will no longer be called Tophet, nor the valley of the son of Hinnom, but the valley of slaughter.

Jeremiah 19:7
And I will make the counsel of Judah and Jerusalem void in this place; and I will cause them to fall by the sword before their enemies, and by the hands of those who seek their lives, and I will give their carcasses to be meat for the fowls of the heaven, and for the beasts of the earth.

Jeremiah 19:8
And I will make this city desolate, and a hissing; everyone who passes thereby will be astonished and hiss because of all the plagues thereof.

Jeremiah 19:9
And I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they will eat everyone the flesh of his friend in the siege and straitness, whereby their enemies, and those who seek their lives, will straiten them.'

Jeremiah 19:10
Then you will break the bottle in the sight of the men who go with you,

Jeremiah 19:11
And will say to them, 'Thus the Lord of hosts says; 'Even so I will break this people and this city, as [one] breaks a potter's vessel, that cannot be made whole again, and they will bury [them] in Tophet, until [there is] no place to bury.

Jeremiah 19:12
Thus I will do to this place,' the Lord says, 'And to the inhabitants thereof, and [even] make this city as Tophet.

Jeremiah 19:13
And the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses of the kings of Judah, will be defiled as the place of Tophet, because of all the houses upon whose roofs they have burned incense to all the host of heaven, and have poured out drink offerings to other gods.'"

Jeremiah 19:14
Then Jeremiah came from Tophet, where the Lord had sent him to prophesy; and he stood in the court of the Lord's House; and said to all the people,

Jeremiah 19:15
"Thus the Lord of hosts says, the God of Israel; 'Behold, I will bring upon this city and upon all her towns all the evil that I have pronounced against it, because they have hardened their necks, that they might not hear My words.'"

Jeremiah 20:1
Now Pashur, the son of Immer the priest, who [was] also chief governor in the House of the Lord, heard that Jeremiah prophesied these things.

Jeremiah 20:2
Then Pashur struck Jeremiah the prophet, and put him in the stocks that [were] in the high gate of Benjamin, which [was] by the House of the Lord.

Jeremiah 20:3
And it came to pass on the morrow, that Pashur brought Jeremiah forth out of the stocks.  Then Jeremiah said to him, "The Lord has not called your name Pashur, but Magormissabib.

Jeremiah 20:4
For the Lord thus says, 'Behold, I will make you a terror to yourself, and to all your friends, and they will fall by the sword of their enemies, and your eyes will behold [it], and I will give all Judah into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he will carry them captive into Babylon, and will slay them with the sword.

Jeremiah 20:5
Moreover I will deliver all the strength of this city, and all the labors thereof, and all the precious things thereof, and I will give all the treasures of the kings of Judah into the hand of their enemies, who will spoil them, and take them, and carry them to Babylon.

Jeremiah 20:6
And you, Pashur, and all who dwell in your house will go into captivity, and you will come to Babylon, and there you will die, and will be buried there, you and all your friends, to whom you have prophesied lies.'

Jeremiah 20:7
O Lord, You have deceived me, and I was deceived, You are stronger than I, and have prevailed, I am in derision daily, everyone mocks me.

Jeremiah 20:8
For since I spoke, I cried out, I cried violence and spoil; because the word of the Lord was made a reproach to me, and a derision, daily."

Jeremiah 20:9
Then I said, "I will not make mention of Him, nor speak in His name anymore."  But [His word] was in my heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not [stay].

Jeremiah 20:10
For I heard the defaming of many, fear on every side.  "Report, [they say], and we will report it."  All my familiars watched for my halting, [saying], "Perhaps he will be enticed, and we will prevail against him, and we will take our revenge on him."

Jeremiah 20:11
But the Lord [is] with me as a mighty terrible one, therefore my persecutors will stumble, and they will not prevail, they will be greatly ashamed; for they will not prosper, [their] everlasting confusion will never be forgotten. 

Jeremiah 20:12
But, O Lord of hosts, who tests the righteous, [and] sees the reins and the heart, let me see Your vengeance on them, for have I opened my cause to You.

Jeremiah 20:13
Sing to the Lord, praise the Lord, for He has delivered the soul of the poor from the hand of evildoers.

Jeremiah 20:14
Cursed [is] the day wherein I was born, do not let the day wherein my mother bore me be blessed.

Jeremiah 20:15
Cursed [is] the man who brought tidings to my father, saying, "A male child is born to you; making him very glad."

Jeremiah 20:16
And let that man be as the cities which the Lord overthrew, and did not repent, and let him hear the cry in the morning, and the shouting at noontide;

Jeremiah 20:17
Because he did not slay me from the womb; or that my mother might have been my grave, and her womb [to be] always great [with me].

Jeremiah 20:18
Why did I come forth out of the womb to see labor and sorrow, that my days should be consumed with shame?

Jeremiah 21:1
The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, when king Zedekiah sent Pashur, the son of Melchiah, to him, and Zephaniah, the son of Maaseiah the priest, saying,

Jeremiah 21:2
"Enquire, I pray you, of the Lord for us; for Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon, makes war against us; if it so is that the Lord will deal with us according to all His wondrous works, that he may go up from us."

Jeremiah 21:3
Then Jeremiah said to them, "Thus you will say to Zedekiah.

Jeremiah 21:4
'Thus the Lord says, God of Israel; 'Behold, I will turn back the weapons of war that [are] in your hands, whereby you fight against the king of Babylon, and [against] the Chaldeans, who besiege you outside the walls, and I will assemble them into the midst of this city.

Jeremiah 21:5
And I Myself will fight against you with an outstretched hand and with a strong arm, even in anger, and in fury, and in great wrath.

Jeremiah 21:6
And I will strike the inhabitants of this city, both man and beast, they will die of a great pestilence.

Jeremiah 21:7
And afterward,' the Lord says, 'I will deliver Zedekiah, king of Judah, and his servants, and the people, and such who are left in this city from the pestilence, from the sword, and from the famine, into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon, and into the hand of their enemies, and into the hand of those who seek their life, and he will strike them with the edge of the sword; he will not spare them, neither have pity, nor have mercy.'

Jeremiah 21:8
And you will say to this people, 'Thus the Lord says; 'Behold, I set the way of life before you, and the way of death.

Jeremiah 21:9
He who abides in this city will die by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence, but he who goes out, and falls to the Chaldeans that besiege you, he will live, and his life will be to him for a prey.

Jeremiah 21:10
For I have set My Face against this city for evil, and not for good,' the Lord says, 'It will be given into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he will burn it with fire.'

Jeremiah 21:11
And touching the house of the king of Judah, [say], 'Hear the word of the Lord;

Jeremiah 21:12
O house of David, thus the Lord says; 'Execute judgment in the morning, and deliver [him who is] spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor, unless My fury goes out like fire, and burns that none can quench [it], because of the evil of your doings.

Jeremiah 21:13
Behold, I [am] against you, O inhabitant of the valley, [and] rock of the plain,' the Lord says; 'Who say, 'Who will come down against us?  Or who will enter into our habitations?'

Jeremiah 21:14
But I will punish you according to the fruit of your doings,' the Lord says, 'And I will kindle a fire in the forest thereof, and it will devour all things around it.'

Jeremiah 22:1
Thus the Lord says; 'Go down to the house of the king of Judah, and speak this word there,

Jeremiah 22:2
And say, 'Hear the word of the Lord, O king of Judah, who sits upon the throne of David, you and your servants, and your people who enter in by these gates.

Jeremiah 22:3
Thus the Lord says; 'Execute judgment and righteousness, and deliver the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor, and do no wrong, do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, nor the widow, neither shed innocent blood in this place.

Jeremiah 22:4
For if you do this thing indeed, then kings sitting upon the throne of David will enter in by the gates of this house, riding in chariots and on horses, he and his servants and his people.

Jeremiah 22:5
But if you will not hear these words, I swear by Myself,' the Lord says, 'That this house will become a desolation.'

Jeremiah 22:6
For thus the Lord says to the king's house of Judah; 'You [are] Gilead to Me, [and] the head of Lebanon, [yet] I will surely make you a wilderness, [and] cities [that] are not inhabited.

Jeremiah 22:7
And I will prepare destroyers against you, everyone with his weapons, and they will cut down your choice cedars, and cast [them] into the fire.

Jeremiah 22:8
And many nations will pass by this city, and they will say, every man to his neighbor, 'Why has the Lord done thus to this great city?'

Jeremiah 22:9
Then they will answer, 'Because they have forsaken the covenant of the Lord their God, and worshiped other gods, and served them.'

Jeremiah 22:10
Do not weep for the dead, neither bemoan him, [but] weep sore for him who goes away, for he will no longer return, nor see his native country.'

Jeremiah 22:11
For thus the Lord says touching Shallum, the son of Josiah, king of Judah, who reigned instead of Josiah his father, who went forth out of this place; 'He will not return there anymore.

Jeremiah 22:12
But he will die in the place where they have led him captive, and will no longer see this land.

Jeremiah 22:13
Woe to him who builds his house by unrighteousness, and his chambers by wrong; [who] uses his neighbor's service without wages, and does not give him for his work;

Jeremiah 22:14
Who says, 'I will build myself a wide house and large chambers, and cut him out windows; and [it is] cieled with cedar, and painted with vermilion.'

Jeremiah 22:15
Will you reign, because you close [yourself] in cedar?  Did your father not eat and drink, and do judgment and justice, [and] then [it was] well with him?

Jeremiah 22:16
He judged the cause of the poor and needy; then [it was] well [with him, was] this not to know Me?'  The Lord says.

Jeremiah 22:17
'But your eyes and your heart [are] not but for your covetousness, and to shed innocent blood, and for oppression, and for violence, to do [it].'

Jeremiah 22:18
Therefore the Lord thus says concerning Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah, king of Judah; 'They will not lament for him, [saying], 'Ah my brother!'  Or, 'Ah sister!'  They will not lament for him, [saying], 'Ah lord!'  Or, 'Ah his glory!'

Jeremiah 22:19
He will be buried with the burial of a donkey, drawn and cast forth beyond the gates of Jerusalem.

Jeremiah 22:20
Go up to Lebanon, and cry; and lift up your voice in Bashan, and cry from the passages, for all your lovers are destroyed.

Jeremiah 22:21
I spoke to you in your prosperity; [but] you said, 'I will not hear.'  This [has been] your manner from your youth, that you did not obey My voice.

Jeremiah 22:22
The wind will eat up all your pastors, and your lovers will go into captivity, surely then you will be ashamed and confounded for all your wickedness.

Jeremiah 22:23
O inhabitant of Lebanon, who makes your nest in the cedars, how gracious you will be when pangs come upon you, the pain as of a woman in travail!

Jeremiah 22:24
[As] I live,' the Lord says, 'Though Coniah, the son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, were the signet upon My right hand, yet I would pluck you from there;

Jeremiah 22:25
And I will give you into the hand of those who seek your life, and into the hand [of those] whose face you fear, even into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon, and into the hand of the Chaldeans.

Jeremiah 22:26
And I will cast you out, and your mother who bore you, into another country, where you were not born; and there you will die.

Jeremiah 22:27
But to the land where they desire to return, there they will not return.'

Jeremiah 22:28
[Is] this man Coniah, a despised broken idol?  [Is he] a vessel wherein [is] no pleasure?  Why are they cast out, he and his seed, and are cast into a land which they do not know?

Jeremiah 22:29
O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the Lord.

Jeremiah 22:30
Thus the Lord says, 'Write this man childless, a man [who] will not prosper in his days, for no man of his seed will prosper, sitting upon the throne of David, and ruling anymore in Judah.

Jeremiah 23:1
Woe to the pastors who destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture!'  The Lord says.

Jeremiah 23:2
Therefore the Lord thus says, God of Israel, against the pastors who feed My people; 'You have scattered My flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them, behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings,' the Lord says.

Jeremiah 23:3
'And I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all countries where I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they will be fruitful and increase.

Jeremiah 23:4
And I will set up shepherds over them who will feed them, and they will no longer fear, nor be dismayed, neither will they be lacking,' the Lord says.

Jeremiah 23:5
'Behold, the days come,' the Lord says, 'That I will raise a righteous Branch to David, and a king will reign and prosper, and will execute judgment and justice in the earth.

Jeremiah 23:6
In his days, Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell safely, and this [is] his name whereby he will be called, the Lord, our Righteousness.

Jeremiah 23:7
Therefore, behold, the days come,' the Lord says, 'That they will no longer say, 'The Lord lives, who brought up the Children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;'

Jeremiah 23:8
But, 'The Lord lives, who brought up and who led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country,' and from all countries where I had driven them; and they will dwell in their own land.'

Jeremiah 23:9
My heart within me is broken because of the prophets; all my bones shake; I am like a drunk man, and like a man whom wine has overcome, because of the Lord, and because of the words of His holiness.

Jeremiah 23:10
For the land is full of adulterers; the land mourns because of swearing; the pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up, and their course is evil, and their force [is] not right.

Jeremiah 23:11
'For both prophet and priest are profane; indeed, I have found their wickedness in My House,' the Lord says.

Jeremiah 23:12
'Therefore their way will be to them as slippery [ways] in the darkness, they will be driven on, and fall therein, for I will bring evil upon them, [even] the year of their visitation,' the Lord says.

Jeremiah 23:13
'And I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied in Baal, and caused My people Israel to err.

Jeremiah 23:14
I have also seen in the prophets of Jerusalem a horrible thing, they commit adultery, and walk in lies, they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none return from his wickedness, all of them are to Me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.'

Jeremiah 23:15
Therefore the Lord thus says of hosts concerning the prophets; 'Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall, for profaneness has gone forth from the prophets of Jerusalem into all the land.'

Jeremiah 23:16
Thus the Lord of hosts says, 'Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you, they make you vain, they speak a vision of their own heart, [and] not out of the mouth of the Lord.

Jeremiah 23:17
They still say to those who despise Me, 'The Lord has said, 'You will have peace;' and they say to everyone who walks after the imagination of his own heart, 'No evil will come upon you.'

Jeremiah 23:18
For who has stood in the counsel of the Lord, and has perceived and heard His word?  Who has marked His word, and heard [it]?

Jeremiah 23:19
Behold, a whirlwind of the Lord has gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind, it will fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.

Jeremiah 23:20
The anger of the Lord will not return, until He has executed, and until He has performed the thoughts of His heart, in the latter days you will consider it perfectly.

Jeremiah 23:21
I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran, I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.

Jeremiah 23:22
But if they had stood in My counsel, and had caused My people to hear My words, then they should have turned from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.

Jeremiah 23:23
[Am] I a God at hand,' the Lord says, 'And not a God afar off?

Jeremiah 23:24
Can any hide himself in secret places that I will not see him?'  The Lord says.  'Do I not fill heaven and earth?'  The Lord says.

Jeremiah 23:25
'I have heard what the prophets said, who prophesy lies in My name, saying, 'I have dreamed, I have dreamed.'

Jeremiah 23:26
How long will [this] be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies?  Indeed, [they are] prophets of the deceit of their own heart;

Jeremiah 23:27
Who think to cause My people to forget My name by their dreams which they tell, every man to his neighbor, as their fathers have forgotten My name for Baal.

Jeremiah 23:28
The prophet who has a dream, let him tell a dream; and he who has My word, let him speak My word faithfully.  What [is] the chaff to the wheat?'  The Lord says.

Jeremiah 23:29
'[Is] My word not as a fire?'  The Lord says; 'And like a hammer [that] breaks the rock in pieces?

Jeremiah 23:30
Therefore, behold, I [am] against the prophets,' the Lord says, 'Who steal My words, everyone from his neighbor.

Jeremiah 23:31
Behold, I [am] against the prophets,' the Lord says, 'Who use their tongues and say, 'He says.'

Jeremiah 23:32
Behold, I [am] against those who prophesy false dreams,' the Lord says, 'And tell them, and cause My people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I did not send them, nor command them, therefore they will not profit this people at all,' the Lord says.

Jeremiah 23:33
'And when this people, or the prophet, or a priest, will ask you, saying, 'What [is] the burden of the Lord?'  You will then say to them, 'What burden?  I will even forsake you,' the Lord says.

Jeremiah 23:34
And [as for] the prophet, and the priest, and the people, who will say, 'The burden of the Lord,' I will even punish that man and his house.

Jeremiah 23:35
Thus you will say, everyone to his neighbor, and everyone to his brother, 'What has the Lord answered?'  And, 'What has the Lord spoken?'

Jeremiah 23:36
And you will no longer mention the burden of the Lord, for every man's word will be his burden; for you have perverted the words of the living God, of the Lord of hosts our God.

Jeremiah 23:37
Thus you will say to the prophet, 'What has the Lord answered you?'  And, 'What has the Lord spoken?'

Jeremiah 23:38
But since you say, 'The burden of the Lord;' therefore the Lord thus says; 'Because you say this word, 'The burden of the Lord,' and I have sent to you, saying, 'You will not say, 'The burden of the Lord;'

Jeremiah 23:39
Therefore, behold, I, even I, will utterly forget you, and I will forsake you, and the city that I gave you and your fathers, [and cast you] out of My presence.

Jeremiah 23:40
And I will bring an everlasting reproach upon you, and a perpetual shame, which will not be forgotten.'"
Jeremiah 24:1
The Lord showed me, and, behold, two baskets of figs [were] set before the temple of the Lord, after that, Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon, had carried away Jeconiah captive, the son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, and the princes of Judah, with the carpenters and smiths, from Jerusalem, and had brought them to Babylon.  *Matthew 1:11

Jeremiah 24:2
One basket [had] very good figs, [even] like the figs [that are] first ripe, and the other basket [had] very bad figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad.

Jeremiah 24:3
Then the Lord said to me, "What do you see, Jeremiah?"  And I said, "Figs; the good figs, very good; and the evil, very evil, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil."

Jeremiah 24:4
Again the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

Jeremiah 24:5
"Thus the Lord says, the God of Israel; 'Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge those who are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for [their] good.

Jeremiah 24:6
For I will set My eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land, and I will build them, and not pull [them] down; and I will plant them, and not pluck [them] up.

Jeremiah 24:7
And I will give them a heart to know Me, that I [am] the Lord, and they will be My people, and I will be their God, for they will return to Me with their whole heart.

Jeremiah 24:8
And as the evil figs, which cannot be eaten, they are so evil;' surely the Lord thus says, 'So will I give Zedekiah, the king of Judah, and his princes, and the residue of Jerusalem, who remain in this land, and those who dwell in the land of Egypt.

Jeremiah 24:9
And I will deliver them to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth for [their] hurt, [to be] a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places where I will drive them.

Jeremiah 24:10
And I will send the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, among them, until they are consumed from off the land that I gave to them and to their fathers.'"

Jeremiah 25:1
The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the people of Judah in the fourth year of Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah, king of Judah, that [was] the first year of Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon;

Jeremiah 25:2
Which Jeremiah the prophet spoke to all the people of Judah, and to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying,

Jeremiah 25:3
"From the thirteenth year of Josiah, the son of Amon, king of Judah, even to this day, that [is] the twenty third year, the word of the Lord has come to me, and I have spoken to you, rising early and speaking; but you have not listened.

Jeremiah 25:4
And the Lord has sent all His servants the prophets to you, rising early and sending [them]; but you have not listened, nor inclined your ear to hear.

Jeremiah 25:5
They said, 'Turn again now, everyone from his evil way, and from the evil of your doings, and dwell in the land that the Lord has given to you and your fathers forever and ever.

Jeremiah 25:6
And do not go after other gods to serve them, and to worship them, and provoke Me not to anger with the works of your hands; and I will do you no hurt.'

Jeremiah 25:7
Yet you have not listened to Me,' the Lord says; 'That you might provoke Me to anger with the works of your hands to your own hurt.'

Jeremiah 25:8
Therefore the Lord thus says of hosts; 'Because you have not heard My words,
Jeremiah 25:9
Behold, I will send and take all the families of the north,' the Lord says, 'And Nebuchadrezzar, the king of Babylon, My servant, *17:5 and will bring them against this land, and against the inhabitants thereof, and against all these nations round about, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and a hissing, and perpetual desolations. 
Jeremiah 25:10
Moreover I will take from them the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones, and the light of the candle.
Jeremiah 25:11
And this whole land will be a desolation, [and] an astonishment; and these nations will serve the king of Babylon for seventy years.
Jeremiah 25:12
And it will come to pass, when the seventy years are accomplished, [that] I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation,' the Lord says, 'For their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans, and will make it perpetual desolations.  *Daniel 9:2*17:6

Jeremiah 25:13
And I will bring upon that land all My words which I have pronounced against it, [even] all that is written in this Book, which Jeremiah has prophesied against all the nations.

Jeremiah 25:14
For many nations and great kings will serve themselves of them also, and I will recompense them according to their deeds, and according to the works of their own hands.'

Jeremiah 25:15
For thus the Lord says, God of Israel, to me; 'Take the wine cup of this fury at My hand, and cause all the nations, to whom I send you, to drink it.

Jeremiah 25:16
And they will drink, and be moved, and be mad, because of the sword that I will send among them.'"

Jeremiah 25:17
Then I took the cup at the Lord's hand, and made all the nations drink, to whom the Lord had sent me.

Jeremiah 25:18
[To knowledge], Jerusalem, and the cities of Judah, and the kings thereof, and the princes thereof, to make them a desolation, an astonishment, a hissing, and a curse; as [it is] this day;

Jeremiah 25:19
Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and his servants, and his princes, and all his people;

Jeremiah 25:20
And all the mingled people, and all the kings of the land of Uz, and all the kings of the land of the Philistines, and Ashkelon, and Azzah, and Ekron, and the remnant of Ashdod,

Jeremiah 25:21
Edom, and Moab, and the children of Ammon,

Jeremiah 25:22
And all the kings of Tyre, and all the kings of Sidon, and the kings of the isles which [are] beyond the sea,

Jeremiah 25:23
Dedan, and Tema, and Buz, and all [who are] in the utmost corners,

Jeremiah 25:24
And all the kings of Arabia, and all the kings of the mingled people who dwell in the desert,

Jeremiah 25:25
And all the kings of Zimri, and all the kings of Elam, and all the kings of the Medes,

Jeremiah 25:26
And all the kings of the north, far and near, one with another, and all the kingdoms of the world, which [are] upon the face of the earth, and the king of Sheshach will drink after them.

Jeremiah 25:27
"Therefore you will say to them, 'Thus the Lord of hosts says, the God of Israel; 'Drink and be drunk, and spue, and fall, and rise no more, because of the sword which I will send among you.'

Jeremiah 25:28
And it will be, if they refuse to take the cup at your hand to drink, then you will say to them, 'Thus the Lord of hosts says; 'You will certainly drink.

Jeremiah 25:29
For, look, I begin to bring evil on the city which is called by My name, and should you be utterly unpunished? You will not be unpunished, for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth,' the Lord of hosts says.
Jeremiah 25:30
Therefore prophesy against them all these words, and say to them, 'The Lord will roar from on high, and utter His voice from His holy habitation; He will mightily roar upon His habitation; He will give a shout, *37:19, *79:13 as those who tread [the grapes], against all the inhabitants of the earth.

Jeremiah 25:31
A noise will come [even] to the ends of the earth; for the Lord has a controversy with the nations, He will judge all flesh; He will give those [who are] wicked to the sword,' the Lord says.

Jeremiah 25:32
Thus the Lord of hosts says, 'Behold, evil will go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind will be raised up from the coasts of the earth.

Jeremiah 25:33
And the slain of the Lord will be at that Day, from [one] end of the earth even to the [other] end of the earth, they will not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they will be dung upon the ground.

Jeremiah 25:34
Howl, you shepherds, and cry; and wallow yourselves [in the ashes], you principal of the flock, for the days of your slaughter and of your dispersions are accomplished; and you will fall like a pleasant vessel.

Jeremiah 25:35
And the shepherds will have no way to flee, nor the principal of the flock to escape.

Jeremiah 25:36
A voice of the cry of the shepherds, and a howling of the principal of the flock, [will be heard], for the Lord has spoiled their pasture.

Jeremiah 25:37
And the peaceable habitations are cut down because of the fierce anger of the Lord.

Jeremiah 25:38
He has forsaken His covert, as the lion, for their land is desolate because of the fierceness of the oppressor, and because of His fierce anger.'"

Jeremiah 26:1
In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah, king of Judah, this word came from the Lord, saying,
Jeremiah 26:2
"Thus the Lord says; 'Stand in the court of the Lord's House, and speak to all the cities of Judah, who come to worship in the Lord's House, all the words that I command you to speak to them; *21:27 do not diminish a word.

Jeremiah 26:3
If [it] so is [that] they will listen, and turn, every man from his evil way, that I may repent Myself of the evil, which I purpose to do to them because of the evil of their doings.

Jeremiah 26:4
And you will say to them, 'Thus the Lord says; 'If you will not hear Me, to walk in My law, which I have set before you,

Jeremiah 26:5
To hear the words of My servants the prophets, whom I sent to you, both rising up early, and sending [them], but you have not listened;

Jeremiah 26:6
Then I will make this House like Shiloh, and will make this city a curse to all the nations of the earth.'"

Jeremiah 26:7
So the priests and the prophets and all the people heard Jeremiah speaking these words in the House of the Lord.

Jeremiah 26:8
Now it came to pass, when Jeremiah had made an end of speaking all that the Lord had commanded [him] to speak to all the people, that the priests and the prophets and all the people took him, saying, "You will surely die.

Jeremiah 26:9
Why have you prophesied in the name of the Lord, saying, 'This House will be like Shiloh, and this city will be desolate without an inhabitant?'"  And all the people were gathered against Jeremiah in the House of the Lord.

Jeremiah 26:10
When the princes of Judah heard these things, then they came up from the king's house to the House of the Lord, and sat down in the entry of the new gate of the Lord's [House].

Jeremiah 26:11
Then the priests and the prophets spoke to the princes and to all the people, saying, "This man [is] worthy to die; for he has prophesied against this city, as you have heard with your ears."

Jeremiah 26:12
Then Jeremiah spoke to all the princes and to all the people, saying, "The Lord sent me to prophesy against this House and against this city all the words that you have heard.

Jeremiah 26:13
Therefore, now amend your ways and your doings, and obey the voice of the Lord your God; and the Lord will repent Himself of the evil that He has pronounced against you.

Jeremiah 26:14
As for me, behold, I [am] in your hand, do with me as seems good and upright to you.

Jeremiah 26:15
But know for certain, that if you put me to death, you will surely bring innocent blood upon yourselves, and upon this city, and upon the inhabitants thereof, for of a truth, the Lord has sent me to you to speak all these words in your ears."

Jeremiah 26:16
Then the princes and all the people said to the priests and to the prophets; "This man [is] not worthy to die, for he has spoken to us in the name of the Lord our God."

Jeremiah 26:17
Then some of the elders of the land rose up and spoke to all the assembly of the people, saying,

Jeremiah 26:18
"Micah the Morasthite prophesied in the days of Hezekiah, king of Judah, and spoke to all the people of Judah, saying, 'Thus the Lord of hosts says; 'Zion will be plowed [like] a field, and Jerusalem will become heaps, and the mountain of the house as the high places of a forest.'

Jeremiah 26:19
Did Hezekiah, king of Judah, and all Judah put him to death at all?  Did he not fear the Lord, and besought the Lord, and the Lord repented Himself of the evil which He had pronounced against them?  Thus we might procure great evil against our souls."

Jeremiah 26:20
And there was also a man who prophesied in the name of the Lord, Urijah, the son of Shemaiah of Kirjathjearim, who prophesied against this city and against this land according to all the words of Jeremiah.

Jeremiah 26:21
And when Jehoiakim the king, with all his mighty men, and all the princes, heard his words, the king sought to put him to death, but when Urijah heard it, he was afraid, and fled, and went into Egypt;

Jeremiah 26:22
And Jehoiakim the king sent men into Egypt, [namely], Elnathan, the son of Achbor, and [certain] men with him into Egypt.

Jeremiah 26:23
And they fetched forth Urijah out of Egypt, and brought him to Jehoiakim the king; who slew him with the sword, and cast his dead body into the graves of the common people.

Jeremiah 26:24
Nevertheless, the hand of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, was with Jeremiah, that they should not give him into the hand of the people to put him to death.

Jeremiah 27:1
In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah, king of Judah, this word came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,

Jeremiah 27:2
Thus the Lord says to me; "Make bonds and yokes, and put them upon your neck,

Jeremiah 27:3
And send them to the king of Edom, and to the king of Moab, and to the king of the Ammonites, and to the king of Tyre, and to the king of Sidon, by the hand of the messengers who come to Jerusalem to Zedekiah, king of Judah;

Jeremiah 27:4
And command them to say to their masters, 'Thus the Lord of hosts says, the God of Israel; 'Thus you will say to your masters;

Jeremiah 27:5
'I have made the earth, the man and the beast that [are] upon the ground, by My great power and by My outstretched arm, and have given it to whom it seemed upright to Me.
Jeremiah 27:6
And now I have given all these lands into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon, My servant; *17:5 and I have also given him the beasts of the field to serve him.

Jeremiah 27:7
And all nations will serve him, and his son, and his son's son, until the very time of his land comes, and then many nations and great kings will serve themselves of him.

Jeremiah 27:8
And it will come to pass, [that] the nation and kingdom which will not serve the same Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon, and that will not put their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, that nation will I punish,' the Lord says, 'With the sword, and with the famine, and with the pestilence, until I have consumed them by his hand.

Jeremiah 27:9
Therefore do not listen to your prophets, nor to your diviners, nor to your dreamers, nor to your enchanters, nor to your sorcerers, who speak to you, saying, 'You will not serve the king of Babylon.'

Jeremiah 27:10
For they prophesy a lie to you, to remove you far from your land; and that I should drive you out, and you should perish.

Jeremiah 27:11
But the nations that bring their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, and serve him, I will let those still remain in their own land,' the Lord says; 'And they will till it, and dwell therein.'"

Jeremiah 27:12
I also spoke to Zedekiah, king of Judah, according to all these words, saying, "Bring your necks under the yoke of the king of Babylon, and serve him and his people, and live.

Jeremiah 27:13
Why will you die, you and your people, by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence, as the Lord has spoken against the nation that will not serve the king of Babylon?

Jeremiah 27:14
Therefore do not listen to the words of the prophets who speak to you, saying, 'You will not serve the king of Babylon,' for they prophesy a lie to you.

Jeremiah 27:15
'For I have not sent them,' the Lord says, 'Yet they prophesy a lie in My name; that I might drive you out, and that you might perish, you and the prophets who prophesy to you.'"

Jeremiah 27:16
I also spoke to the priests and all this people, saying, "Thus the Lord says; 'Do not listen to the words of your prophets who prophesy to you, saying, 'Behold, the vessels of the Lord's House will now shortly be brought again from Babylon,' for they prophesy a lie to you.

Jeremiah 27:17
Do not listen to them; serve the king of Babylon, and live, why should this city be laid waste?

Jeremiah 27:18
But if they [are] prophets, and if the word of the Lord is with them, let them now make intercession to the Lord of hosts, that the vessels which are left in the House of the Lord, and [in] the house of the king of Judah, and at Jerusalem, do not go to Babylon.

Jeremiah 27:19
For the Lord of hosts thus says concerning the pillars, and concerning the sea, and concerning the bases, and concerning the residue of the vessels that remain in this city,
Jeremiah 27:20
'Which Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, did not take, when he carried away Jeconiah captive, the son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, from Jerusalem to Babylon, and all the nobles of Judah and Jerusalem;' *Matthew 1:11

Jeremiah 27:21
Indeed, the Lord of hosts thus says, the God of Israel, concerning the vessels that remain [in] the House of the Lord, and [in] the house of the king of Judah and of Jerusalem;

Jeremiah 27:22
'They will be carried to Babylon, and they will be there until the day that I visit them,' the Lord says; 'Then I will bring them up, and restore them to this place.'"

Jeremiah 28:1
And it came to pass the same year, in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah, king of Judah, in the fourth year, [and] in the fifth month, [that] Hananiah, the son of Azur the prophet, who [was] of Gibeon, spoke to me in the House of the Lord, in the presence of the priests and of all the people, saying,

Jeremiah 28:2
"Thus the Lord of hosts speaks, the God of Israel, saying, 'I have broken the yoke of the king of Babylon.

Jeremiah 28:3
Within two full years I will bring all the vessels of the Lord's House again into this place, which Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, took away from this place, and carried them to Babylon.

Jeremiah 28:4
And I will bring Jeconiah, the son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, again to this place, with all the captives of Judah, who went into Babylon,' the Lord says, 'For I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon.'"

Jeremiah 28:5
Then the prophet Jeremiah said to the prophet Hananiah in the presence of the priests, and in the presence of all the people who stood in the House of the Lord,

Jeremiah 28:6
Even the prophet Jeremiah said, "Amen, the Lord, do so, the Lord, perform Your words which You have prophesied, to bring the vessels of the Lord's House again, and all that is carried away captive, from Babylon into this place.

Jeremiah 28:7
Nevertheless, now hear this word that I speak in Your ears, and in the ears of all the people;

Jeremiah 28:8
'The prophets who have been before me and before You of old, prophesied both against many countries, and against great kingdoms, of war, and of evil, and of pestilence.

Jeremiah 28:9
The prophet who prophesies of peace, when the word of the prophet will come to pass, [then] the prophet will be known, that the Lord has truly sent him.'"

Jeremiah 28:10
Then Hananiah the prophet took the yoke from off the prophet Jeremiah's neck, and broke it.

Jeremiah 28:11
And Hananiah spoke in the presence of all the people, saying, "Thus the Lord says; 'Even so will I break the yoke of Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, from the neck of all nations within the space of two full years.'"  And the prophet Jeremiah went his way.

Jeremiah 28:12
Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah [the prophet], after Hananiah the prophet had broken the yoke from off the neck of the prophet Jeremiah, saying,

Jeremiah 28:13
"Go and tell Hananiah, saying, 'Thus the Lord says; 'You have broken the yokes of wood; but you will make yokes of iron for them.'

Jeremiah 28:14
For the Lord of hosts thus says, the God of Israel; 'I have put a yoke of iron upon the neck of all these nations, that they may serve Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon; and they will serve him, and I have given him the beasts of the field also.'"

Jeremiah 28:15
Then the prophet Jeremiah said to Hananiah the prophet, "Hear now, Hananiah; the Lord has not sent you; but you make this people trust in a lie.

Jeremiah 28:16
Therefore the Lord thus says; 'Behold, I will cast you from off the face of the earth, this year you will die, because you have taught rebellion against the Lord.'"

Jeremiah 28:17
So Hananiah the prophet died *Deuteronomy 18:20 the same year in the seventh month.

Jeremiah 29:1
Now these [are] the words of the letter that Jeremiah the prophet sent from Jerusalem to the residue of the elders who were carried away captives, and to the priests, and to the prophets, and to all the people whom Nebuchadnezzar had carried away captive from Jerusalem to Babylon;

Jeremiah 29:2
(After Jeconiah the king, and the queen, and the eunuchs, the princes of Judah and Jerusalem, and the carpenters, and the smiths, had departed from Jerusalem);

Jeremiah 29:3
By the hand of Elasah, the son of Shaphan, and Gemariah, the son of Hilkiah (whom Zedekiah, king of Judah, sent to Babylon to Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon), saying,

Jeremiah 29:4
"Thus the Lord of hosts says, the God of Israel, to all who are carried away captives, whom I have caused to be carried away from Jerusalem to Babylon;

Jeremiah 29:5
'Build houses, and dwell [in them]; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them;

Jeremiah 29:6
Take wives, and father sons and daughters; and take wives for your sons, and give your daughters to husbands, that they may bear sons and daughters; that you may be increased there, and not diminished.

Jeremiah 29:7
And seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray to the Lord for it, for in the peace thereof you will have peace.'"

Jeremiah 29:8
For the Lord of hosts thus says, the God of Israel; "Do not let your prophets and your diviners, who [are] in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hear your dreams which you cause to be dreamed.

Jeremiah 29:9
For they prophesy falsely to you in My name, I have not sent them," the Lord says.
Jeremiah 29:10
For the Lord thus says, "That after seventy years are accomplished at Babylon, I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.  *Daniel 9:2

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you," the Lord says, "Thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Jeremiah 29:12
Then you will call upon Me, and you will go and pray to Me, and I will hear you.
Jeremiah 29:13
And you will seek Me, and find [Me], when you will search for Me with all your heart.  *Matthew 7:7, *Luke 11:9

Jeremiah 29:14
And I will be found of you," the Lord says, "And I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather from all the nations, and from all the places where I have driven you," the Lord says; "And I will bring you again into the place from where I caused you to be carried away captive."

Jeremiah 29:15
Because you have said, "The Lord has raised us up prophets in Babylon;"

Jeremiah 29:16
[Know] that the Lord thus says of the king who sits upon the throne of David, and of all the people who dwell in this city, [and] of your brethren who have not gone forth with you into captivity;

Jeremiah 29:17
Thus the Lord of hosts says; "Behold, I will send the sword upon them, the famine, and the pestilence, and will make them like vile figs, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil.

Jeremiah 29:18
And I will persecute them with the sword, with the famine, and with the pestilence, and will deliver them to be removed to all the kingdoms of the earth, to be a curse, and an astonishment, and a hissing, and a reproach, among all the nations where I have driven them.

Jeremiah 29:19
Because they have not listened to My words," the Lord says, "Which I sent to them by My servants the prophets, rising up early and sending [them]; but you would not hear," the Lord says.

Jeremiah 29:20
Hear therefore the word of the Lord, all you of the captivity, whom I have sent from Jerusalem to Babylon.
Jeremiah 29:21
Thus the Lord of hosts says, the God of Israel, of Ahab, the son of Kolaiah, and of Zedekiah, the son of Maaseiah, who prophesy a lie to you in My name; "Behold, I will deliver them into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon; and he will slay them *Deuteronomy 18:20 before your eyes;

Jeremiah 29:22
And a curse of them will be taken up, by all the captivity of Judah who [are] in Babylon, saying, 'The Lord make like Zedekiah and like Ahab, whom the king of Babylon roasted in the fire;

Jeremiah 29:23
Because they have committed villainy in Israel, and have committed adultery with their neighbors' wives, and have spoken lying words in My name, which I have not commanded them; even I know, and [am] a Witness," the Lord says.

Jeremiah 29:24
[Thus] you will also speak to Shemaiah the Nehelamite, saying,

Jeremiah 29:25
"Thus speaks the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, saying, 'Because you have sent letters in your name to all the people who [are] at Jerusalem, and to Zephaniah, the son of Maaseiah the priest, and to all the priests, saying,

Jeremiah 29:26
'The Lord has made you priest in the stead of Jehoiada the priest, that you should be officers in the House of the Lord, for every man [who is] mad, and makes himself a prophet, that you should put him in prison, and in the stocks.'

Jeremiah 29:27
Now therefore, why have you not reproved Jeremiah of Anathoth, who makes himself a prophet to you?

Jeremiah 29:28
For he therefore sent to us [in] Babylon, saying, 'This [captivity is] long, build houses, and dwell [in them]; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them.'"

Jeremiah 29:29
And Zephaniah the priest read this letter in the ears of Jeremiah the prophet.

Jeremiah 29:30
Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, saying,

Jeremiah 29:31
"Send to all them of the captivity, saying, 'Thus the Lord says concerning Shemaiah the Nehelamite; 'Because Shemaiah has prophesied to you, and I did not send him, and he caused you to trust in a lie.'

Jeremiah 29:32
Therefore the Lord thus says; 'Behold, I will punish Shemaiah the Nehelamite, and his seed, he will not have a man to dwell among this people; neither will he behold the good that I will do for My people,' the Lord says; 'Because he has taught rebellion against the Lord.'"

Jeremiah 30:1
The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,

Jeremiah 30:2
"Thus the Lord God of Israel speaks, saying, 'Write all the words that I have spoken to you in a book.

Jeremiah 30:3
For, look, the days come,' the Lord says, 'That I will bring the captivity of My people Israel and Judah again,' the Lord says, 'And I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they will possess it.'"

Jeremiah 30:4
And these [are] the words that the Lord spoke concerning Israel and concerning Judah.

Jeremiah 30:5
For thus the Lord says; "We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace.

Jeremiah 30:6
Ask now, and see whether a man travails with child?  Why do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness?

Jeremiah 30:7
Alas!  For that day [is] great, so that none [are] like it, it [is] even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he will be saved out of it.

Jeremiah 30:8
For it will come to pass in that day," the Lord of hosts says, "[That] I will break his yoke from off your neck, and will burst your bonds, and strangers will no longer serve themselves of him.

Jeremiah 30:9
But they will serve the Lord their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up to them.

Jeremiah 30:10
Therefore do not fear, O My servant Jacob," the Lord says; "Neither be dismayed, O Israel, for, look, I will save you from afar, and your seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob will return, and will be in rest, and be quiet, and none will make [him] afraid.

Jeremiah 30:11
For I [am] with you," the Lord says, "To save you, though I make a full end of all nations where I have scattered you, yet I will not make a full end of you, but I will correct you in measure, and will not leave you altogether unpunished."

Jeremiah 30:12
For the Lord thus says, "Your bruise [is] incurable, [and] your wound [is] grievous.

Jeremiah 30:13
[There are] none to plead your cause, that you may be bound up, you have no healing medicines.

Jeremiah 30:14
All your lovers have forgotten you; they do not seek you; for I have wounded you with the wound of an enemy, with the chastisement of a cruel one, for the multitude of your iniquity; [because] your sins have increased.

Jeremiah 30:15
Why cry for your affliction?  Your sorrow [is] incurable for the multitude of your iniquity, [because] your sins have increased, I have done these things to you.

Jeremiah 30:16
Therefore all those who devour you, will be devoured; and all your adversaries, every one of them, will go into captivity; and those who spoil you, will be a spoil, and all who prey upon you, I will give for a prey.

Jeremiah 30:17
For I will restore health to you, and I will heal you of your wounds," the Lord says; "Because they called you an outcast, [saying], 'This [is] Zion, whom no man seeks after.'"

Jeremiah 30:18
Thus the Lord says; "Behold, I will bring again the captivity of Jacob's tents, and have mercy on his dwelling places; and the city will be built upon her own heap, and the palace will remain after the manner thereof.

Jeremiah 30:19
And out of them will proceed thanksgiving and the voice of those laughing, and I will multiply them, and they will not be few; I will also glorify them, and they will not be small.

Jeremiah 30:20
Their children also will be as aforetime, and their congregation will be established before Me, and I will punish all who oppress them.

Jeremiah 30:21
And their nobles will be of themselves, and their governor will proceed from the midst of them; and I will cause him to draw near, and he will approach Me, for who [is] this who engaged his heart to approach Me?"  The Lord says.

Jeremiah 30:22
"And you will be My people, and I will be your God."

Jeremiah 30:23
Behold, the whirlwind of the Lord goes forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind, it will fall with pain upon the head of the wicked.

Jeremiah 30:24
The fierce anger of the Lord will not return, until He has done [it], and until He has performed the intents of His heart, in the latter days you will consider it.

Jeremiah 31:1
"At the same time," the Lord says, "I will be the God of all the families of Israel, and they will be My people."

Jeremiah 31:2
Thus the Lord says, "The people [who were] left of the sword found grace in the wilderness; [even] Israel, when I went to cause him to rest."

Jeremiah 31:3
The Lord has appeared of old to me, [saying], "Indeed, I have loved you with an everlasting love, therefore I have drawn you with loving kindness.

Jeremiah 31:4
Again I will build you, and you will be built, O virgin of Israel, you will again be adorned with your tabrets, and will go forth in the dances of those who laugh.

Jeremiah 31:5
You will still plant vines upon the mountains of Samaria, the planters will plant, and will eat [them] as common things.

Jeremiah 31:6
For there will be a day, [that] the watchmen upon the Mount Ephraim will cry, 'Arise, and let us go up to Zion to the Lord our God.'"

Jeremiah 31:7
For thus the Lord says; "Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations, publish, praise, and say, 'O Lord, save Your people, the remnant of Israel.'

Jeremiah 31:8
Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, [and] the blind and the lame with them, the woman with child and her who travails with child together, a great company will return there.
Jeremiah 31:9
They will come with weeping, and I will lead them with supplications, I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they will not stumble, for I am a Father to Israel, and Ephraim [is] My firstborn. *2:116*10:68*18:4*19:88*37:151 - 152

Jeremiah 31:10
Hear the word of the Lord, O you nations, and declare [it] in the isles afar off, and say, 'He who scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd [does] his flock.'

Jeremiah 31:11
For the Lord has redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of [him who was] stronger than him.

Jeremiah 31:12
Therefore they will come and sing in the height of Zion, and will flow together to the goodness of the Lord, for wheat, and for wine, and for oil, and for the young of the flock and of the herd, and their soul will be as a watered garden; and they will not sorrow anymore at all.

Jeremiah 31:13
Then the virgin will rejoice in the dance, both young men and old together, for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow.

Jeremiah 31:14
And I will satiate the soul of the priests with fatness, and My people will be satisfied with My goodness," the Lord says.
Jeremiah 31:15
Thus the Lord says; "A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, [and] bitter weeping; Rahel, weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they [were] not."  *Matthew 2:17 - 18

Jeremiah 31:16
Thus the Lord says; "Refrain your voice from weeping, and your eyes from tears, for your work will be rewarded," the Lord says; "And they will come again from the land of the enemy.

Jeremiah 31:17
And there is hope in your end," the Lord says, "That your children will come again to their own border.

Jeremiah 31:18
I have surely heard Ephraim bemoaning himself [thus]; 'You have chastised me, and I was chastised, as a bullock unaccustomed [to the yoke], turn me, and I will be turned; for You [are] the Lord my God.

Jeremiah 31:19
Surely, after I was turned, I repented; and after I was instructed, I struck upon [my] thigh, I was ashamed, indeed, even confounded, because I bore the reproach of my youth.'

Jeremiah 31:20
[Is] Ephraim My dear son?  [Is he] a pleasant child?  For since I spoke against him, I earnestly remember him still, therefore My bowels are troubled for him; I will surely have mercy upon him," the Lord says.

Jeremiah 31:21
Set up waymarks, make high heaps, set your heart toward the highway, [even] the way [which] you went, turn again, O virgin of Israel, turn again to these your cities.

Jeremiah 31:22
How long you will go about, O you backsliding daughter?  For the Lord has created a new thing in the earth, a woman will encompass a man.

Jeremiah 31:23
Thus the Lord of hosts says, the God of Israel; "As they will still use this speech in the land of Judah and in the cities thereof, when I will bring their captivity again; 'The Lord bless you, O habitation of justice, [and] mountain of holiness.'"

Jeremiah 31:24
And there will dwell in Judah itself, and in all the cities thereof together, husbandmen, and those [who] go forth with flocks.

Jeremiah 31:25
For I have satiated the weary soul, and I have replenished every sorrowful soul.

Jeremiah 31:26
I awakened upon this, and beheld; and my sleep was sweet to me.

Jeremiah 31:27
"Behold, the days come," the Lord says, "That I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man, and with the seed of beast.

Jeremiah 31:28
And it will come to pass, [that] as I have watched over them, to pluck up, and to break down, and to throw down, and to destroy, and to afflict; so I will watch over them, to build, and to plant," the Lord says.

Jeremiah 31:29
In those days they will no longer say, "The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on edge."

Jeremiah 31:30
But everyone will die for his own iniquity, every man who eats the sour grape, his teeth will be set on edge.

Jeremiah 31:31
"Behold, the days come," the Lord says, "That I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah.

Jeremiah 31:32
Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day [that] I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which covenant of Mine they broke, although I was a husband to them," the Lord says.

Jeremiah 31:33
"But this [will be] the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; after those days," the Lord says, "I will put My law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they will be My people.
Jeremiah 31:34
And they will no longer teach, every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, 'Know the Lord,' for they will all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them," *John 6:45 the Lord says, "For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will no longer remember their sin."  *Hebrews 8:8 - 12

Jeremiah 31:35
Thus the Lord says, who gives the sun for a light by day, [and] the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, who divides the sea when the waves thereof roar; "The Lord of hosts [is] His name.

Jeremiah 31:36
If those ordinances depart from before Me," the Lord says, "[Then] the seed of Israel will also cease from being a nation before Me forever."

Jeremiah 31:37
Thus the Lord says; "If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done," the Lord says.

Jeremiah 31:38
"Behold, the days come," the Lord says, "That the city will be built to the Lord from the tower of Hananeel to the gate of the corner.

Jeremiah 31:39
And the measuring line will still go forth over against it upon the hill Gareb, and will encompass about to Goath.

Jeremiah 31:40
And the whole valley of the dead bodies, and of the ashes, and all the fields to the brook of Kidron, to the corner of the horse gate toward the east, [will be] holy to the Lord; it will not be plucked up, nor thrown down anymore forever."

Jeremiah 32:1
The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord in the tenth year of Zedekiah, king of Judah, which [was] the eighteenth year of Nebuchadrezzar.

Jeremiah 32:2
For then, the king of Babylon's army besieged Jerusalem, and Jeremiah the prophet was shut up in the court of the prison, which [was] in the king of Judah's house.

Jeremiah 32:3
For Zedekiah, king of Judah had shut him up, saying, "Why do you prophesy, and say, 'Thus the Lord says, 'Behold, I will give this city into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he will take it;

Jeremiah 32:4
And Zedekiah, king of Judah will not escape out of the hand of the Chaldeans, but will surely be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon, and will speak with him mouth to mouth, and his eyes will behold his eyes;

Jeremiah 32:5
And he will lead Zedekiah to Babylon, and there he will be until I visit him,' the Lord says, 'Though you fight with the Chaldeans, you will not prosper.'"

Jeremiah 32:6
And Jeremiah said, "The word of the Lord came to me, saying,

Jeremiah 32:7
'Behold, Hanameel, the son of Shallum, your uncle, will come to you, saying, 'Buy my field that [is] in Anathoth, for the right of redemption [is] yours to buy [it].'"

Jeremiah 32:8
So Hanameel, my uncle's son, came to me in the court of the prison according to the word of the Lord, and said to me, "Buy my field, I pray you, that [is] in Anathoth, which [is] in the country of Benjamin, for the right of inheritance [is] yours, and the redemption [is] yours; buy [it] for yourself." Then I knew that this [was] the word of the Lord.

Jeremiah 32:9
And I bought the field of Hanameel, my uncle's son, that [was] in Anathoth, and weighed him the money, [even] seventeen shekels of silver.

Jeremiah 32:10
And I subscribed the evidence, and sealed [it], and took witnesses, and weighed [him] the money in the balances.

Jeremiah 32:11
So I took the evidence of the purchase, [both] that which was sealed [according] to the law and custom, and that which was open.

Jeremiah 32:12
And I gave the evidence of the purchase to Baruch, the son of Neriah, the son of Maaseiah, in the sight of Hanameel, my uncle's [son], and in the presence of the witnesses who subscribed the book of the purchase, before all the Jews who sat in the court of the prison.  *2:282

Jeremiah 32:13
And I charged Baruch before them, saying,

Jeremiah 32:14
"Thus the Lord of hosts says, the God of Israel; 'Take these evidences, this evidence of the purchase, both which is sealed, and this evidence which is open; and put them in an earthen vessel, that they may continue many days.'

Jeremiah 32:15
For the Lord of hosts thus says, the God of Israel; 'Houses and fields and vineyards will be possessed again in this land.'"

Jeremiah 32:16
Now when I had delivered the evidence of the purchase to Baruch, the son of Neriah, I prayed to the Lord, saying,

Jeremiah 32:17
"Ah Lord God!  Behold, You have made the heaven and the earth by Your great power and stretched out arm, [and] there is nothing too hard for You.

Jeremiah 32:18
You show loving kindness to thousands, and recompense the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them, the Great, the Mighty God, the Lord of hosts, [is] His name,

Jeremiah 32:19
Great in counsel, and mighty in work, for Your eyes [are] open upon all the ways of the sons of men, to give everyone according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.

Jeremiah 32:20
Who has set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, [even] to this day, and in Israel, and among [other] men; and have made Yourself a name, as at this day;

Jeremiah 32:21
And have brought forth Your people Israel out of the land of Egypt with signs, and with wonders, and with a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with great terror;

Jeremiah 32:22
And have given to them this land, which You swore to their fathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey;

Jeremiah 32:23
And they came in, and possessed it; but they did not obey Your voice, neither walked in Your law; they have done nothing of all that You commanded them to do, therefore You have caused all this evil to come upon them.

Jeremiah 32:24
Behold the mounts, they are brought to the city to take it; and the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans, who fight against it, because of the sword, and of the famine, and of the pestilence, and what You have spoken has come to pass; and, behold, You see [it].

Jeremiah 32:25
And You have said to me, O Lord God, 'Buy the field for money, and take witnesses; for the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans.'"

Jeremiah 32:26
Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, saying,

Jeremiah 32:27
"Behold, I [am] the Lord, the God of all flesh, is there anything too hard for Me?"

Jeremiah 32:28
Therefore the Lord thus says; "Behold, I will give this city into the hand of the Chaldeans, and into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon, and he will take it.

Jeremiah 32:29
And the Chaldeans, who fight against this city, will come and set fire on this city, and burn it with the houses, upon whose roofs they have offered incense to Baal, and poured out drink offerings to other gods, to provoke Me to anger.

Jeremiah 32:30
For the Children of Israel and the Children of Judah have only done evil before Me from their youth, for the Children of Israel have only provoked Me to anger with the work of their hands," the Lord says.

Jeremiah 32:31
"For this city has been to Me [as] a provocation of My anger and of My fury from the day that they built it even to this day; that I should remove it from before My Face,

Jeremiah 32:32
Because of all the evil of the Children of Israel and of the Children of Judah, which they have done to provoke Me to anger, they, their kings, their princes, their priests, and their prophets, and the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

Jeremiah 32:33
And they have turned the back to Me, and not the face, though I taught them, rising up early and teaching [them], yet they have not listened to receive instruction.

Jeremiah 32:34
But they set their abominations in the House, which is called by My name, to defile it.
Jeremiah 32:35
And they built the high places of Baal, which [are] in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through [the fire] to Molech; which I did not command them, neither did it come into My mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin."  *6:137

Jeremiah 32:36
And now therefore the Lord thus says, the God of Israel, concerning this city, whereof you say, "It will be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence;

Jeremiah 32:37
Behold, I will gather them out of all countries, where I have driven them in My anger, and in My fury, and in great wrath; and I will bring them again to this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely.

Jeremiah 32:38
And they will be My people, and I will be their God.

Jeremiah 32:39
And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear Me forever, for the good of them, and of their children after them.

Jeremiah 32:40
And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put My fear in their hearts, that they will not depart from Me.

Jeremiah 32:41
Indeed, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will plant them in this land assuredly with My whole heart and with My whole soul."

Jeremiah 32:42
For thus the Lord says; "As I have brought all this great evil upon this people, so will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised them.

Jeremiah 32:43
And fields will be bought in this land, whereof you say, '[It is] desolate without man or beast; it is given into the hand of the Chaldeans.'

Jeremiah 32:44
Men will buy fields for money, and subscribe evidences, and seal [them], and take witnesses in the land of Benjamin, and in the places about Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah, and in the cities of the mountains, and in the cities of the valley, and in the cities of the south, for I will cause their captivity to return," the Lord says.

Jeremiah 33:1
Moreover the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah the second time, while he was still shut up in the court of the prison, saying,

Jeremiah 33:2
"Thus the Lord says, the Maker thereof, the Lord who formed it, to establish it; the Lord [is] His name;

Jeremiah 33:3
'Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you did not know.'

Jeremiah 33:4
For the Lord thus says, the God of Israel, concerning the houses of this city, and concerning the houses of the kings of Judah, which are thrown down by the mounts, and by the sword;

Jeremiah 33:5
'They come to fight with the Chaldeans, but [it is] to fill them with the dead bodies of men, whom I have slain in My anger and in My fury, and for all whose wickedness I have hidden My Face from this city.

Jeremiah 33:6
Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal to them the abundance of peace and truth.

Jeremiah 33:7
And I will cause the captivity of Judah and the captivity of Israel to return, and will build them, as at the first.

Jeremiah 33:8
And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, whereby they have sinned against Me; and I will pardon all their iniquities, whereby they have sinned, and whereby they have transgressed against Me.

Jeremiah 33:9
And it will be a name of joy to Me, a praise and an honor before all the nations of the earth, which will hear all the good that I do to them, and they will fear and tremble for all the goodness and for all the prosperity that I procure to it.'

Jeremiah 33:10
Thus the Lord says; 'Again there will be heard in this place, which you say [will be] desolate without man and without beast, [even] in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, that are desolate, without man, and without inhabitant, and without beast,

Jeremiah 33:11
The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of those who will say, 'Praise the Lord of hosts, for the Lord [is] good; for His mercy [endures] forever,' [and] of those who will bring the sacrifice of praise into the House of the Lord.  For I will cause the captivity of the land to return, as at the first,' the Lord says.

Jeremiah 33:12
Thus the Lord of hosts says; 'Again in this place, which is desolate without man and without beast, and in all the cities thereof, will be a habitation of shepherds causing [their] flocks to lie down.

Jeremiah 33:13
In the cities of the mountains, in the cities of the vale, and in the cities of the south, and in the land of Benjamin, and in the places about Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah, the flocks will pass again under the hands of him who tells [them],' the Lord says.

Jeremiah 33:14
'Behold, the days come,' the Lord says, 'That I will perform that good thing which I have promised to the house of Israel and to the house of Judah.

Jeremiah 33:15
In those days, and at that time, I will cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up to David; and he will execute judgment and righteousness in the land.

Jeremiah 33:16
In those days Judah will be saved, and Jerusalem will dwell safely, and this [is the name] whereby she will be called, The Lord our righteousness.'

Jeremiah 33:17
For thus the Lord says; 'David will never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel;

Jeremiah 33:18
Neither will the priests the Levites want a man to offer burnt offerings before Me, and to kindle meat offerings, and to do sacrifice continually.'"

Jeremiah 33:19
And the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, saying,

Jeremiah 33:20
"Thus the Lord says; 'If you can break My covenant of the day, and My covenant of the night, and that there should not be day and night in their season;

Jeremiah 33:21
[Then] My covenant may also be broken with David My servant, that he should not have a son to reign upon his throne; and with the Levites the priests, My ministers.

Jeremiah 33:22
As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea measured, so will I multiply the seed of David My servant, and the Levites who minister to Me.'"

Jeremiah 33:23
Moreover the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, saying,

Jeremiah 33:24
"Do you not consider what this people has spoken, saying, 'The two families whom the Lord has chosen, has He even cast them off?'  Thus they have despised My people, that they should no longer be a nation before them.

Jeremiah 33:25
Thus the Lord says; 'If My covenant [is] not with day and night, [and if] I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth;

Jeremiah 33:26
Then I will cast away the seed of Jacob, and David My servant, [so] that I will not take [any] of his seed [to be] rulers over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, for I will cause their captivity to return, and have mercy on them.'"

Jeremiah 34:1
The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, when Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, and all his army, and all the kingdoms of the earth of his dominion, and all the people, fought against Jerusalem, and against all the cities thereof, saying,

Jeremiah 34:2
Thus the Lord says, the God of Israel; "Go and speak to Zedekiah, king of Judah, and tell him, 'Thus the Lord says; 'Behold, I will give this city into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he will burn it with fire.

Jeremiah 34:3
And you will not escape out of his hand, but will surely be taken, and delivered into his hand; and your eyes will behold the eyes of the king of Babylon, and he will speak with you mouth to mouth, and you will go to Babylon.'

Jeremiah 34:4
Yet hear the word of the Lord, O Zedekiah, king of Judah; thus the Lord says of you, 'You will not die by the sword.

Jeremiah 34:5
[But] you will die in peace, and with the burnings of your fathers, the former kings who were before you, so they will burn [odors] for you; and they will lament you, [saying], 'Ah lord!'  For I have pronounced the word," the Lord says.

Jeremiah 34:6
Then Jeremiah the prophet spoke all these words to Zedekiah, king of Judah in Jerusalem,

Jeremiah 34:7
When the king of Babylon's army fought against Jerusalem, and against all the cities of Judah that were left, against Lachish, and against Azekah, for these defensed cities remained of the cities of Judah.

Jeremiah 34:8
[This is] the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, after the king Zedekiah had made a covenant with all the people who [were] at Jerusalem, to proclaim liberty to them;

Jeremiah 34:9
That every man should let his manservant, and every man his maidservant, [being] a Hebrew or a Hebrewess, go free; that none should serve himself of them, [to knowledge], of a Jew his brother.

Jeremiah 34:10
Now when all the princes, and all the people, who had entered into the covenant, heard that everyone should let his manservant, and everyone his maidservant, go free, that none should serve themselves of them anymore, then they obeyed, and let [them] go.

Jeremiah 34:11
But afterward they turned, and caused the servants and the handmaids, whom they had let go free, to return, and brought them into subjection for servants and for handmaids.

Jeremiah 34:12
Therefore the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,

Jeremiah 34:13
"Thus the Lord says, the God of Israel; 'I made a covenant with your fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondmen, saying,

Jeremiah 34:14
'At the end of seven years let go every man his brother a Hebrew, who has been sold to you; and when he has served you for six years, you will let him go free from you,' but your fathers did not listen to Me, neither incline their ear.

Jeremiah 34:15
And you were now turned, and had done right in My sight, in proclaiming liberty, every man to his neighbor; and you had made a covenant before Me in the House which is called by My name.

Jeremiah 34:16
But you turned and polluted My name, and caused every man his servant, and every man his handmaid, whom you had set at liberty at their pleasure, to return, and brought them into subjection, to be to you for servants and for handmaids."

Jeremiah 34:17
Therefore the Lord thus says; "You have not listened to Me, in proclaiming liberty, everyone to his brother, and every man to his neighbor, behold, I proclaim a liberty for you," the Lord says, "To the sword, to the pestilence, and to the famine; and I will make you to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.

Jeremiah 34:18
And I will give the men who have transgressed My covenant, who have not performed the words of the covenant which they had made before Me, when they cut the calf in two, and passed between the parts thereof,

Jeremiah 34:19
The princes of Judah, and the princes of Jerusalem, the eunuchs, and the priests, and all the people of the land, who passed between the parts of the calf;

Jeremiah 34:20
I will even give them into the hand of their enemies, and into the hand of those who seek their life, and their dead bodies will be for meat to the fowls of the heaven, and to the beasts of the earth.

Jeremiah 34:21
And I will give Zedekiah, king of Judah, and his princes, into the hand of their enemies, and into the hand of those who seek their life, and into the hand of the king of Babylon's army, who have gone up from you.

Jeremiah 34:22
Behold, I will command," the Lord says, "And cause them to return to this city; and they will fight against it, and take it, and burn it with fire, and I will make the cities of Judah a desolation without an inhabitant."

Jeremiah 35:1
The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord in the days of Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah, king of Judah, saying,

Jeremiah 35:2
"Go to the house of the Rechabites, and speak to them, and bring them into the House of the Lord, into one of the chambers, and give them wine to drink."

Jeremiah 35:3
Then I took Jaazaniah, the son of Jeremiah, the son of Habaziniah, and his brethren, and all his sons, and the whole house of the Rechabites;

Jeremiah 35:4
And I brought them into the House of the Lord, into the chamber of the sons of Hanan, the son of Igdaliah, a man of God, who [was] by the chamber of the princes, who [was] above the chamber of Maaseiah, the son of Shallum, the keeper of the door.

Jeremiah 35:5
And I set before the sons of the house of the Rechabites pots full of wine, and cups, and I said to them, "Drink wine."

Jeremiah 35:6
But they said, "We will drink no wine, for Jonadab, the son of Rechab, our father, commanded us, saying, "You will drink no wine, [neither you], nor your sons forever.

Jeremiah 35:7
Neither will you build a house, nor sow seed, nor plant a vineyard, nor have [any], but you will dwell in tents all your days; that you may live many days in the land where you [are] strangers.

Jeremiah 35:8
Thus have we obeyed the voice of Jonadab, the son of Rechab, our father, in all that he has charged us, to drink no wine all our days, we, our wives, our sons, nor our daughters;

Jeremiah 35:9
Nor to build houses for us to dwell in, neither do we have a vineyard, nor field, nor seed.

Jeremiah 35:10
But we have dwelt in tents, and have obeyed and done according to all that Jonadab our father commanded us."

Jeremiah 35:11
But it came to pass, when Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon came up into the land, that we said, "Come, and let us go to Jerusalem for fear of the army of the Chaldeans, and for fear of the army of the Syrians, so we dwell at Jerusalem."

Jeremiah 35:12
Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, saying,

Jeremiah 35:13
"Thus the Lord of hosts says, the God of Israel; 'Go and tell the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, 'Will you not receive instruction to hear My words?'  The Lord says.

Jeremiah 35:14
'The words of Jonadab, the son of Rechab, that he commanded his sons to not drink wine, are performed; for to this day they drink none, but obey their father's commandment, notwithstanding I have spoken to you, rising early and speaking; but you did not listen to Me.

Jeremiah 35:15
I have also sent all My servants the prophets to you, rising up early and sending [them], saying, 'Return now, every man from his evil way, and amend your doings, and do not go after other gods to serve them, and you will dwell in the land which I have given to you and your fathers,' but you have not inclined your ear, nor listened to Me.

Jeremiah 35:16
Because the sons of Jonadab, the son of Rechab, have performed the commandment of their father, which he commanded them; but this people has not listened to Me.

Jeremiah 35:17
Therefore the Lord thus says God of hosts, the God of Israel; 'Behold, I will bring upon Judah and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem all the evil that I have pronounced against them, because I have spoken to them, but they have not heard; and I have called to them, but they have not answered."

Jeremiah 35:18
And Jeremiah said to the house of the Rechabites, "Thus the Lord of hosts says, the God of Israel; 'Because you have obeyed the commandment of Jonadab your father, and kept all his precepts, and done according to all that he has commanded you.'

Jeremiah 35:19
Therefore the Lord of hosts thus says, the God of Israel; 'Jonadab, the son of Rechab, will not want a man to stand before Me forever.'"

Jeremiah 36:1
And it came to pass in the fourth year of Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah, king of Judah, [that] this word came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,

Jeremiah 36:2
"Take a roll of a book, and write therein all the words that I have spoken to you against Israel, and against Judah, and against all the nations, from the day I spoke to you, from the days of Josiah, even to this day.

Jeremiah 36:3
It may be that the house of Judah will hear all the evil which I purpose to do to them; that they may return, every man from his evil way; that I may forgive their iniquity and their sin."

Jeremiah 36:4
Then Jeremiah called Baruch, the son of Neriah, and Baruch wrote all the words of the Lord from the mouth of Jeremiah, which He had spoken to him, upon a roll of a book.

Jeremiah 36:5
And Jeremiah commanded Baruch, saying, "I [am] shut up; I cannot go into the House of the Lord.

Jeremiah 36:6
Therefore go, and read in the roll, which you have written from my mouth, the words of the Lord in the ears of the people in the Lord's House upon the fasting day, and you will also read them in the ears of all Judah, who come out of their cities.

Jeremiah 36:7
It may be they will present their supplication before the Lord, and will return, everyone from his evil way, for great [is] the anger and the fury that the Lord has pronounced against this people."

Jeremiah 36:8
And Baruch, the son of Neriah, did according to all that Jeremiah the prophet commanded him, reading the words of the Lord in the book in the Lord's House.

Jeremiah 36:9
And it came to pass in the fifth year of Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah, king of Judah, in the ninth month, [that] they proclaimed a fast before the Lord to all the people in Jerusalem, and to all the people who came from the cities of Judah to Jerusalem.

Jeremiah 36:10
Then Baruch read the words of Jeremiah in the book in the House of the Lord, in the chamber of Gemariah, the son of Shaphan the scribe, in the higher court, at the entry of the new gate of the Lord's House, in the ears of all the people.

Jeremiah 36:11
When Michaiah, the son of Gemariah, the son of Shaphan, had heard all the words of the Lord out of the book,

Jeremiah 36:12
Then he went down into the king's house, into the scribe's chamber, and, look, all the princes sat there, [even] Elishama the scribe, and Delaiah, the son of Shemaiah, and Elnathan, the son of Achbor, and Gemariah, the son of Shaphan, and Zedekiah, the son of Hananiah, and all the princes.

Jeremiah 36:13
Then Michaiah declared to them all the words that he had heard, when Baruch read the book in the ears of the people.

Jeremiah 36:14
Therefore all the princes sent Jehudi, the son of Nethaniah, the son of Shelemiah, the son of Cushi, to Baruch, saying, "Take the roll in your hand, wherein you have read in the ears of the people, and come."  So Baruch, the son of Neriah, took the roll in his hand, and came to them.

Jeremiah 36:15
And they said to him, "Sit down now, and read it in our ears."  So Baruch read [it] in their ears.

Jeremiah 36:16
Now it came to pass, when they had heard all the words, they were afraid, both one and other, and said to Baruch, "We will surely tell the king of all these words."

Jeremiah 36:17
And they asked Baruch, saying, "Tell us now, how did you write all these words at his mouth?"

Jeremiah 36:18
Then Baruch answered them, "He pronounced all these words to me with his mouth, and I wrote [them] with ink in the book."

Jeremiah 36:19
Then the princes said to Baruch, "Go, hide, you and Jeremiah; and let no man know where you are."

Jeremiah 36:20
And they went in to the king into the court, but they laid the roll up in the chamber of Elishama the scribe, and told all the words in the ears of the king.

Jeremiah 36:21
So the king sent Jehudi to fetch the roll, and he took it out of Elishama the scribe's chamber.  And Jehudi read it in the ears of the king, and in the ears of all the princes who stood beside the king.

Jeremiah 36:22
Now the king sat in the winterhouse in the ninth month, and [there was a fire] on the hearth burning before him.

Jeremiah 36:23
And it came to pass, [that] when Jehudi had read three or four leaves, he cut it with the penknife, and cast [it] into the fire that [was] on the hearth, until all the roll was consumed in the fire that [was] on the hearth.

Jeremiah 36:24
Yet they were not afraid, nor rent their garments, [neither] the king, nor any of his servants who heard all these words.

Jeremiah 36:25
Nevertheless, Elnathan and Delaiah and Gemariah had made intercession to the king that he would not burn the roll, but he would not hear them.

Jeremiah 36:26
But the king commanded Jerahmeel, the son of Hammelech, and Seraiah, the son of Azriel, and Shelemiah, the son of Abdeel, to take Baruch the scribe and Jeremiah the prophet, but the Lord hid them.

Jeremiah 36:27
Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, after the king had burned the roll, and the words which Baruch wrote at the mouth of Jeremiah, saying,

Jeremiah 36:28
"Take another roll again, and write in it all the former words that were in the first roll, which Jehoiakim, the king of Judah, has burned.

Jeremiah 36:29
And you will say to Jehoiakim king of Judah, 'Thus the Lord says; 'You have burned this roll, saying, 'Why have you written therein,' saying, 'The king of Babylon will certainly come and destroy this land, and will cause to cease from there man and beast?'

Jeremiah 36:30
Therefore the Lord thus says of Jehoiakim, king of Judah; 'He will have none to sit upon the throne of David, and his dead body will be cast out in the day to the heat, and in the night to the frost.

Jeremiah 36:31
And I will punish him and his seed and his servants for their iniquity; and I will bring upon them, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and upon the men of Judah, all the evil that I have pronounced against them;'" but they did not listen.

Jeremiah 36:32
Then Jeremiah took another roll, and gave it to Baruch the scribe, the son of Neriah; who wrote therein from the mouth of Jeremiah, all the words of the book which Jehoiakim, king of Judah, had burned in the fire, and many like words were added besides them. 

Jeremiah 37:1
And king Zedekiah, the son of Josiah, reigned instead of Coniah, the son of Jehoiakim, whom Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon, made king in the land of Judah.

Jeremiah 37:2
But neither he, nor his servants, nor the people of the land, heard the words of the Lord, which He spoke by the prophet Jeremiah.

Jeremiah 37:3
And Zedekiah the king sent Jehucal, the son of Shelemiah, and Zephaniah, the son of Maaseiah the priest, to the prophet Jeremiah, saying, "Pray now to the Lord our God for us."

Jeremiah 37:4
Now Jeremiah came in and went out among the people, for they had not put him into prison.

Jeremiah 37:5
Then Pharaoh's army was brought forth out of Egypt, and when the Chaldeans who besieged Jerusalem heard tidings of them, they departed from Jerusalem.

Jeremiah 37:6
Then the word of the Lord came to the prophet Jeremiah, saying,

Jeremiah 37:7
"Thus the Lord says, the God of Israel; 'Thus you will say to the king of Judah, who sent you to Me to inquire of Me; 'Behold, Pharaoh's army, which has come forth to help you, will return to Egypt into their own land.

Jeremiah 37:8
And the Chaldeans will come again, and fight against this city, and take it, and burn it with fire.'"

Jeremiah 37:9
Thus the Lord says; "Do not deceive yourselves, saying, 'The Chaldeans will surely depart from us,' for they will not depart.

Jeremiah 37:10
For though you had struck the whole army of the Chaldeans who fight against you, and there remained [but] wounded men among them, [yet] they will rise up, every man in his tent, and burn this city with fire."

Jeremiah 37:11
And it came to pass, that when the army of the Chaldeans was broken up from Jerusalem for fear of Pharaoh's army,

Jeremiah 37:12
Then Jeremiah went forth out of Jerusalem to go into the land of Benjamin, to separate himself from there in the midst of the people.

Jeremiah 37:13
And when he was in the gate of Benjamin, a captain of the ward [was] there, whose name [was] Irijah, the son of Shelemiah, the son of Hananiah; and he took Jeremiah the prophet, saying, "You fall away to the Chaldeans."

Jeremiah 37:14
Then Jeremiah said, "[It is] false; I do not fall away to the Chaldeans."  But he did not listen to him, so Irijah took Jeremiah, and brought him to the princes.

Jeremiah 37:15
Therefore the princes were wroth with Jeremiah, and struck him, and put him in prison in the house of Jonathan the scribe, for they had made that the prison.

Jeremiah 37:16
When Jeremiah had entered into the dungeon, and into the cabins, and Jeremiah had remained there for many days;

Jeremiah 37:17
Then Zedekiah the king sent, and took him out, and the king asked him secretly in his house, and said, "Is there [any] word from the Lord?"  And Jeremiah said, "There is, for, He said, you will be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon."

Jeremiah 37:18
Moreover Jeremiah said to king Zedekiah, "What have I offended against you, or against your servants, or against this people, that you have put me in prison?

Jeremiah 37:19
Where [are] your prophets now who prophesied to you, saying, 'The king of Babylon will not come against you, nor against this land?'

Jeremiah 37:20
Therefore hear now, I pray you, O my lord the king, let my supplication, I pray you, be accepted before you; that you do not cause me to return to the house of Jonathan the scribe, unless I die there."

Jeremiah 37:21
Then Zedekiah the king commanded that they should commit Jeremiah into the court of the prison, and that they should give him a piece of bread out of the bakers' street daily, until all the bread in the city was spent.  Thus Jeremiah remained in the court of the prison.

Jeremiah 38:1
Then Shephatiah, the son of Mattan, and Gedaliah, the son of Pashur, and Jucal, the son of Shelemiah, and Pashur, the son of Malchiah, heard the words that Jeremiah had spoken to all the people, saying,

Jeremiah 38:2
"Thus the Lord says, 'He who remains in this city will die by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence, but he who goes forth to the Chaldeans will live; for he will have his life for a prey, and will live.'

Jeremiah 38:3
Thus the Lord says, 'This city will surely be given into the hand of the king of Babylon's army, which will take it.'"

Jeremiah 38:4
Therefore the princes said to the king, "We beseech you, let this man be put to death, for he thus weakens the hands of the men of war who remain in this city, and the hands of all the people, in speaking such words to them, for this man does not seek the welfare of this people, but the hurt."

Jeremiah 38:5
Then Zedekiah the king said, "Behold, he [is] in your hand, for the king [is] not [he who] can do [any] thing against you."

Jeremiah 38:6
Then they took Jeremiah, and cast him into the dungeon of Malchiah, the son of Hammelech, that [was] in the court of the prison, and they let Jeremiah down with cords.  And [there was] no water in the dungeon, but mire, so Jeremiah sunk in the mire.

Jeremiah 38:7
Now when Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, one of the eunuchs who was in the king's house, heard that they had put Jeremiah in the dungeon; the king, then sitting in the gate of Benjamin;

Jeremiah 38:8
Ebedmelech went forth out of the king's house, and spoke to the king, saying,

Jeremiah 38:9
"My lord the king, these men have done evil in all that they have done to Jeremiah the prophet, whom they have cast into the dungeon; and he is likely to die for hunger in the place where he is, for [there is] no more bread in the city."

Jeremiah 38:10
Then the king commanded Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, saying, "Take thirty men with you from here, and take up Jeremiah the prophet out of the dungeon, before he dies.

Jeremiah 38:11
So Ebedmelech took the men with him, and went into the house of the king under the treasury, and took old cast clouts and old rotten rags from there, and let them down by cords into the dungeon to Jeremiah.

Jeremiah 38:12
And Ebedmelech the Ethiopian said to Jeremiah, "Put now [these] old cast clouts and rotten rags under your armholes under the cords."  And Jeremiah did so.

Jeremiah 38:13
So they drew up Jeremiah with cords, and took him up out of the dungeon, and Jeremiah remained in the court of the prison.

Jeremiah 38:14
Then Zedekiah the king sent, and took Jeremiah the prophet to him into the third entry that [is] in the House of the Lord, and the king said to Jeremiah, "I will ask you a thing; hide nothing from me."

Jeremiah 38:15
Then Jeremiah said to Zedekiah, "If I declare [it] to you, will you not surely put me to death?  And if I give you counsel, will you not hear me?"

Jeremiah 38:16
So Zedekiah the king swore secretly to Jeremiah, saying, "[As] the Lord lives, who made us this soul, I will not put you to death, neither will I give you into the hand of these men who seek your life."

Jeremiah 38:17
Then Jeremiah said to Zedekiah, "Thus the Lord says, the God of hosts, the God of Israel; 'If you will assuredly go forth to the king of Babylon's princes, then your soul will live, and this city will not be burned with fire; and you will live, and your house.

Jeremiah 38:18
But if you will not go forth to the king of Babylon's princes, then this city will be given into the hand of the Chaldeans, and they will burn it with fire, and you will not escape out of their hand.'"

Jeremiah 38:19
And Zedekiah the king said to Jeremiah, "I am afraid of the Jews who have fallen to the Chaldeans, unless they deliver me into their hand, and they mock me."

Jeremiah 38:20
But Jeremiah said, "They will not deliver [you].  Obey, I beseech you, the voice of the Lord, which I speak to you, so it will be well to you, and your soul will live.

Jeremiah 38:21
But if you refuse to go forth, this [is] the word that the Lord has shown me.

Jeremiah 38:22
And, behold, all the women who are left in the king of Judah's house [will be] brought forth to the king of Babylon's princes, and those [women] will say, 'Your friends have set you on, and have prevailed against you, your feet have sunk in the mire, [and] they have turned back away.'

Jeremiah 38:23
So they will bring out all your wives and your children to the Chaldeans, and you will not escape out of their hand, but will be taken by the hand of the king of Babylon, and you will cause this city to be burned with fire."

Jeremiah 38:24
Then Zedekiah said to Jeremiah, "Let no man know of these words, and you will not die.

Jeremiah 38:25
But if the princes hear that I have talked with you, and they come to you, and say to you, 'Declare to us now what you have said to the king, do not hide it from us, and we will not put you to death; also what the king said to you.'

Jeremiah 38:26
Then you will say to them, 'I presented my supplication before the king, that he would not cause me to return to Jonathan's house, to die there.'"

Jeremiah 38:27
Then all the princes came to Jeremiah, and asked him, and he told them according to all these words that the king had commanded.  So they left off speaking with him; for the matter was not perceived.

Jeremiah 38:28
So Jeremiah abode in the court of the prison until the day that Jerusalem was taken, and he was [there] when Jerusalem was taken.
Jeremiah 39:1
In the ninth year of Zedekiah, king of Judah, in the tenth month, Nebuchadrezzar came, king of Babylon, and all his army against Jerusalem, and they besieged it.  *17:5

Jeremiah 39:2
[And] in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month, the ninth [day] of the month, the city was broken up.

Jeremiah 39:3
And all the princes of the king of Babylon came in, and sat in the middle gate, [even] Nergalsharezer, Samgarnebo, Sarsechim, Rabsaris, Nergalsharezer, Rabmag, with all the residue of the princes of the king of Babylon.

Jeremiah 39:4
And it came to pass, [that] when Zedekiah, the king of Judah, saw them, and all the men of war, then they fled, and went forth out of the city by night, by the way of the king's garden, by the gate between the two walls, and he went out the way of the plain.

Jeremiah 39:5
But the Chaldeans' army pursued after them, and overtook Zedekiah in the plains of Jericho, and when they had taken him, they brought him up to Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, to Riblah in the land of Hamath, where he gave judgment upon him.

Jeremiah 39:6
Then the king of Babylon slew the sons of Zedekiah in Riblah before his eyes, the king of Babylon also slew all the nobles of Judah.

Jeremiah 39:7
Moreover, he put out Zedekiah's eyes, and bound him with chains, to carry him to Babylon.
Jeremiah 39:8
And the Chaldeans burned the king's house, and the houses of the people, with fire, and broke down the walls of Jerusalem.  *17:5

Jeremiah 39:9
Then Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard, carried away the remnant of the people who remained in the city captive into Babylon, and those who fell away, who fell to him, with the rest of the people who remained.

Jeremiah 39:10
But Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard, left of the poor of the people, who had nothing, in the land of Judah, and gave them vineyards and fields at the same time.

Jeremiah 39:11
Now Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon, gave charge concerning Jeremiah to Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard, saying,

Jeremiah 39:12
"Take him, and look well to him, and do him no harm; but do to him even as he will say to you."

Jeremiah 39:13
So Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard sent, and Nebushasban, Rabsaris, and Nergalsharezer, Rabmag, and all the king of Babylon's princes;

Jeremiah 39:14
Even they sent, and took Jeremiah out of the court of the prison, and committed him to Gedaliah, the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, that he should carry him home, so he dwelt among the people.

Jeremiah 39:15
Now the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, while he was shut up in the court of the prison, saying,

Jeremiah 39:16
"Go and speak to Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, saying, 'Thus the Lord of hosts says, the God of Israel; 'Behold, I will bring My words upon this city for evil, and not for good; and they will be [accomplished] in that day before you.

Jeremiah 39:17
But I will deliver you in that day,'" the Lord says, "And you will not be given into the hand of the men of whom you [are] afraid.

Jeremiah 39:18
For I will surely deliver you, and you will not fall by the sword, but your life will be for a prey to you, because you have put your trust in Me," the Lord says."

Jeremiah 40:1
The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, after Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard, had let him go from Ramah, when he had taken him being bound in chains among all who were carried away captive of Jerusalem and Judah, who were carried away captive to Babylon.

Jeremiah 40:2
And the captain of the guard took Jeremiah, and said to him, "The Lord your God has pronounced this evil upon this place.

Jeremiah 40:3
Now the Lord has brought [it], and done accordingly as He has said, because you have sinned against the Lord, and have not obeyed His voice, therefore this thing has come upon you.

Jeremiah 40:4
And now, behold, I loose you this day from the chains which [were] upon your hand.  If it seems good to you to come with me into Babylon, come; and I will look well to you, but if it seems ill to you to come with me into Babylon, forbear, behold, all the land [is] before you, where it seems good and convenient for you to go, there go."

Jeremiah 40:5
Now while he had not yet gone back, [he said], "Go back also to Gedaliah, the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, whom the king of Babylon has made governor over the cities of Judah, and dwell with him among the people, or go wherever it seems convenient to you to go."  So the captain of the guard gave him victuals and a reward, and let him go.

Jeremiah 40:6
Then Jeremiah went to Gedaliah, the son of Ahikam, to Mizpah; and dwelt with him among the people who were left in the land.

Jeremiah 40:7
Now when all the captains of the forces who [were] in the fields, [even] they and their men, heard that the king of Babylon had made Gedaliah, the son of Ahikam, governor in the land, and had committed men to him, and women, and children, and of the poor of the land, of those who were not carried away captive to Babylon;

Jeremiah 40:8
Then they came to Gedaliah to Mizpah, even Ishmael, the son of Nethaniah, and Johanan and Jonathan, the sons of Kareah, and Seraiah, the son of Tanhumeth, and the sons of Ephai the Netophathite, and Jezaniah, the son of a Maachathite, they and their men.

Jeremiah 40:9
And Gedaliah, the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, swore to them and to their men, saying, "Do not fear to serve the Chaldeans, dwell in the land, and serve the king of Babylon, and it will be well with you.

Jeremiah 40:10
As for me, behold, I will dwell at Mizpah to serve the Chaldeans, who will come to us, but you, gather wine, and summer fruits, and oil, and put [them] in your vessels, and dwell in your cities that you have taken."

Jeremiah 40:11
Likewise when all the Jews who [were] in Moab, and among the Ammonites, and in Edom, and who [were] in all the countries, heard that the king of Babylon had left a remnant of Judah, and that he had set over Gedaliah them, the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan;

Jeremiah 40:12
Even all the Jews returned out of all places where they were driven, and came to the land of Judah, to Gedaliah, to Mizpah, and gathered much wine and summer fruits.

Jeremiah 40:13
Moreover, Johanan, the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces who [were] in the fields, came to Gedaliah to Mizpah,

Jeremiah 40:14
And said to him, "Do you certainly know that Baalis, the king of the Ammonites, has sent Ishmael, the son of Nethaniah, to slay you?"  But Gedaliah, the son of Ahikam, did not believe them.

Jeremiah 40:15
Then Johanan, the son of Kareah, spoke to Gedaliah in Mizpah secretly, saying, "Let me go, I pray you, and I will slay Ishmael, the son of Nethaniah, and no man will know [it], why should he slay you, that all the Jews who are gathered to you should be scattered, and the remnant in Judah perish?"

Jeremiah 40:16
But Gedaliah, the son of Ahikam, said to Johanan, the son of Kareah, "You will not do this thing, for you speak falsely of Ishmael."

Jeremiah 41:1
Now it came to pass in the seventh month, [that] Ishmael, the son of Nethaniah, the son of Elishama, of the seed royal, and the princes of the king, even ten men with him, came to Gedaliah, the son of Ahikam, to Mizpah; and they ate bread there together in Mizpah.

Jeremiah 41:2
Then Ishmael arose, the son of Nethaniah, and the ten men who were with him, and struck Gedaliah, the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, with the sword, and slew him, whom the king of Babylon had made governor over the land.

Jeremiah 41:3
Ishmael also slew all the Jews who were with him, [even] with Gedaliah, at Mizpah, and the Chaldeans who were found there, [and] the men of war.

Jeremiah 41:4
And it came to pass the second day, after he had slain Gedaliah, and no man knew [it],

Jeremiah 41:5
That some came there from Shechem, from Shiloh, and from Samaria, [even] eighty men, having their beards shaven, and their clothes rent, and having cut themselves, with offerings and incense in their hand, to bring [them] to the House of the Lord.

Jeremiah 41:6
And Ishmael, the son of Nethaniah, went forth from Mizpah to meet them, weeping all along as he went, and it came to pass, as he met them, he said to them, "Come to Gedaliah, the son of Ahikam."

Jeremiah 41:7
And it was [so], when they came into the midst of the city, that Ishmael, the son of Nethaniah, slew them, [and cast them] into the midst of the pit, he and the men who [were] with him.

Jeremiah 41:8
But ten men were found among those who said to Ishmael, "Do not slay us, for we have treasures in the field, of wheat, and of barley, and of oil, and of honey."  So he forbare, and did not slay them among their brethren.

Jeremiah 41:9
Now the pit wherein Ishmael had cast all the dead bodies of the men, whom he had slain because of Gedaliah, which Asa the king had made for fear of Baasha, king of Israel, [and] Ishmael, the son of Nethaniah, he filled it with [those who were] slain.

Jeremiah 41:10
Then Ishmael carried away all the residue of the people captive, who [were] in Mizpah, [even] the king's daughters, and all the people who remained in Mizpah, whom Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard, had committed to Gedaliah, the son of Ahikam, and Ishmael, the son of Nethaniah, carried them away captive, and departed to go over to the Ammonites.

Jeremiah 41:11
But when Johanan, the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces who [were] with him, heard of all the evil that Ishmael, the son of Nethaniah, had done,

Jeremiah 41:12
Then they took all the men, and went to fight with Ishmael, the son of Nethaniah, and found him by the great waters that [are] in Gibeon.

Jeremiah 41:13
Now it came to pass, [that] when all the people who [were] with Ishmael saw Johanan, the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces who [were] with him, then they were glad.

Jeremiah 41:14
So all the people whom Ishmael had carried away captive from Mizpah cast about and returned, and went to Johanan, the son of Kareah.

Jeremiah 41:15
But Ishmael, the son of Nethaniah, escaped from Johanan with eight men, and went to the Ammonites.

Jeremiah 41:16
Then Johanan, the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces who [were] with him, took all the remnant of the people whom he had recovered from Ishmael, the son of Nethaniah, from Mizpah, after he had slain Gedaliah, the son of Ahikam, [even] mighty men of war, and the women, and the children, and the eunuchs, whom he had brought again from Gibeon.

Jeremiah 41:17
And they departed, and dwelt in the habitation of Chimham, which is by Bethlehem, to go to enter into Egypt,

Jeremiah 41:18
Because of the Chaldeans, for they were afraid of them, because Ishmael, the son of Nethaniah, had slain Gedaliah, the son of Ahikam, whom the king of Babylon made governor in the land.

Jeremiah 42:1
Then all the captains of the forces, and Johanan, the son of Kareah, and Jezaniah, the son of Hoshaiah, and all the people from the least even to the greatest, came near,

Jeremiah 42:2
And said to Jeremiah the prophet, "Let, we beseech you, our supplication be accepted before you, and pray for us to the Lord your God, [even] for all this remnant (for we are left [but] a few of many, as your eyes do behold us).

Jeremiah 42:3
That the Lord your God may show us the way wherein we may walk, and the thing that we may do."

Jeremiah 42:4
Then Jeremiah the prophet said to them, "I have heard [you]; behold, I will pray to the Lord your God according to your words; and it will come to pass, [that] whatever thing the Lord will answer you, I will declare [it] to you; I will keep nothing back from you."

Jeremiah 42:5
Then they said to Jeremiah, "The Lord is a true and faithful Witness between us, if we do not do even according to all things for which the Lord your God will send you to us.

Jeremiah 42:6
Whether [it is] good, or whether [it is] evil, we will obey the voice of the Lord our God, to whom we send you; that it may be well with us, when we obey the voice of the Lord our God."

Jeremiah 42:7
And it came to pass after ten days, that the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah.

Jeremiah 42:8
Then he called Johanan, the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces who [were] with him, and all the people from the least even to the greatest,

Jeremiah 42:9
And said to them, "Thus the Lord says, the God of Israel, to whom you sent me to present your supplication before Him;

Jeremiah 42:10
'If you will still abide in this land, then I will build you, and not pull [you] down, and I will plant you, and not pluck [you] up, for I repent Myself of the evil that I have done to you.

Jeremiah 42:11
Do not be afraid of the king of Babylon, of whom you are afraid; do not be afraid of him,' the Lord says, 'For I [am] with you to save you, and to deliver you from his hand.

Jeremiah 42:12
And I will show mercies to you, that he may have mercy upon you, and cause you to return to your own land.

Jeremiah 42:13
But if you say, 'We will not dwell in this land, neither obey the voice of the Lord your God,'

Jeremiah 42:14
Saying, 'No; but we will go into the land of Egypt, where we will see no war, nor hear the sound of the trumpet, nor have hunger of bread; and there we will dwell.'

Jeremiah 42:15
And now therefore hear the word of the Lord, you remnant of Judah; 'Thus the Lord of hosts says, the God of Israel; 'If you wholly set your faces to enter into Egypt, and go to sojourn there;

Jeremiah 42:16
Then it will come to pass, [that] the sword, which you feared, will overtake you there in the land of Egypt, and the famine, whereof you were afraid, will follow close after you there in Egypt; and there you will die.

Jeremiah 42:17
So will it be with all the men who set their faces to go into Egypt to sojourn there; they will die by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence, and none of them will remain or escape from the evil that I will bring upon them.'

Jeremiah 42:18
For the Lord of hosts thus says, the God of Israel; 'As My anger and My fury have been poured forth upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem; so will My fury be poured forth upon you, when you will enter into Egypt, and you will be an execration, and an astonishment, and a curse, and a reproach; and you will no longer see this place.'

Jeremiah 42:19
The Lord has said concerning you, O you remnant of Judah; 'Do not go into Egypt, know certainly that I have admonished you this day.'

Jeremiah 42:20
For you dissembled in your hearts, when you sent me to the Lord your God, saying, 'Pray for us to the Lord our God; and according to all that the Lord our God will say, so declare to us, and we will do [it].'

Jeremiah 42:21
And [now] I have this day declared [it] to you; but you have not obeyed the voice of the Lord your God, nor any [thing] for which He has sent me to you.

Jeremiah 42:22
Now therefore know certainly that you will die by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence, in the place where you desire to go [and] to sojourn.'"

Jeremiah 43:1
And it came to pass, [that] when Jeremiah had made an end of speaking to all the people all the words of the Lord their God, for which the Lord their God had sent him to them, [even] all these words,

Jeremiah 43:2
Then Azariah spoke, the son of Hoshaiah, and Johanan, the son of Kareah, and all the proud men, saying to Jeremiah, "You speak falsely, the Lord our God has not sent you to say, 'Do not go into Egypt to sojourn there.'

Jeremiah 43:3
But Baruch, the son of Neriah, sets you against us, to deliver us into the hand of the Chaldeans, that they might put us to death, and carry us away captives into Babylon."

Jeremiah 43:4
So Johanan, the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces, and all the people, did not obey the voice of the Lord, to dwell in the land of Judah.

Jeremiah 43:5
But Johanan, the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces, took all the remnant of Judah, who were returned from all nations, where they had been driven, to dwell in the land of Judah;

Jeremiah 43:6
[Even] men, and women, and children, and the king's daughters, and every person whom Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard, had left with Gedaliah, the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, and Jeremiah the prophet, and Baruch, the son of Neriah.

Jeremiah 43:7
So they came into the land of Egypt, for they did not obey the voice of the Lord, thus they came [even] to Tahpanhes.

Jeremiah 43:8
Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah in Tahpanhes, saying,

Jeremiah 43:9
"Take great stones in your hand, and hide them in the clay in the brickkiln, which [is] at the entry of Pharaoh's house in Tahpanhes, in the sight of the men of Judah;
Jeremiah 43:10
And say to them, 'Thus the Lord of hosts says, the God of Israel; 'Behold, I will send and take Nebuchadrezzar, the king of Babylon, My servant, *17:5 and will set his throne upon these stones that I have hidden; and he will spread his royal pavilion over them.

Jeremiah 43:11
And when he comes, he will strike the land of Egypt, [and deliver] such [who are] for death to death; and such [who are] for captivity to captivity; and such [who are] for the sword to the sword.

Jeremiah 43:12
And I will kindle a fire in the houses of the gods of Egypt; and he will burn them, and carry them away captives, and he will array himself with the land of Egypt, as a shepherd puts on his garment; and he will go forth from there in peace.

Jeremiah 43:13
He will also break the images of Bethshemesh, that [are] in the land of Egypt; and he will burn the houses of the gods of the Egyptians with fire."

Jeremiah 44:1
The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the Jews who dwell in the land of Egypt, who dwell at Migdol, and at Tahpanhes, and at Noph, and in the country of Pathros, saying,

Jeremiah 44:2
"Thus the Lord of hosts says, the God of Israel; 'You have seen all the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, and upon all the cities of Judah; and, behold, they [are] a desolation this day, and no man dwells therein,

Jeremiah 44:3
Because of their wickedness which they have committed to provoke Me to anger, in that they went to burn incense, [and] to serve other gods, whom they did not know, [neither] they, you, nor your fathers.

Jeremiah 44:4
Howbeit I sent all My servants the prophets to you, rising early and sending [them], saying, 'Oh, do not do this abominable thing that I hate.'

Jeremiah 44:5
But they did not listen, nor incline their ear to turn from their wickedness, to not burn incense to other gods.

Jeremiah 44:6
Therefore My fury and My anger were poured forth, and were kindled in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem; and they are wasted [and] desolate, as at this day.'"

Jeremiah 44:7
Therefore the Lord thus says now, the God of hosts, the God of Israel; "Why do you commit [this] great evil against your souls, to cut off from man and woman, child and suckling, out of Judah, to leave none to remain;

Jeremiah 44:8
In that you provoke Me to wrath with the works of your hands, burning incense to other gods in the land of Egypt, where you have gone to dwell, that you might cut yourselves off, and that you might be a curse and a reproach among all the nations of the earth?

Jeremiah 44:9
Have you forgotten the wickedness of your fathers, and the wickedness of the kings of Judah, and the wickedness of their wives, and your own wickedness, and the wickedness of your wives, which they have committed in the land of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem?

Jeremiah 44:10
They are not humbled [even] to this day, neither have they feared, nor walked in My law, nor in My statutes, that I set before you and before your fathers."

Jeremiah 44:11
Therefore the Lord of hosts thus says, the God of Israel; "Behold, I will set My Face against you for evil, and to cut off all Judah.

Jeremiah 44:12
And I will take the remnant of Judah, who have set their faces to go into the land of Egypt to sojourn there, and they will all be consumed, [and] fall in the land of Egypt; they will [even] be consumed by the sword [and] by the famine, they will die, from the least even to the greatest, by the sword and by the famine, and they will be an execration, [and] an astonishment, and a curse, and a reproach.

Jeremiah 44:13
For I will punish those who dwell in the land of Egypt, as I have punished Jerusalem, by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence.

Jeremiah 44:14
So that none of the remnant of Judah, who have gone to sojourn into the land of Egypt, will escape or remain, that they should return into the land of Judah, to which they have a desire to return to dwell there, for none will return but such who will escape."

Jeremiah 44:15
Then all the men who knew that their wives had burned incense to other gods, and all the women who stood by, a great multitude, even all the people who dwelt in the land of Egypt, in Pathros, answered Jeremiah, saying,

Jeremiah 44:16
"[As for] the word that you have spoken to us in the name of the Lord, we will not hear you.

Jeremiah 44:17
But we will certainly do whatever thing goes forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings to her, as we have done, we and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, for we had plenty of victuals [then], and were well, and saw no evil.

Jeremiah 44:18
But since we left off to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings to her, we have wanted all [things], and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine.

Jeremiah 44:19
And when we burned incense to the queen of heaven, and poured out drink offerings to her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink offerings to her, without our men?"

Jeremiah 44:20
Then Jeremiah said to all the people, to the men, and to the women, and to all the people who had given him [that] answer, saying,

Jeremiah 44:21
"The incense that you burned in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, you and your fathers, your kings, and your princes, and the people of the land, did the Lord not remember them, and did it [not] come into His mind?

Jeremiah 44:22
So that the Lord could no longer bear, because of the evil of your doings, [and] because of the abominations which you have committed; therefore your land is a desolation, and an astonishment, and a curse, without an inhabitant, as at this day.

Jeremiah 44:23
Because you have burned incense, and because you have sinned against the Lord, and have not obeyed the voice of the Lord, nor walked in His law, nor in His statutes, nor in His testimonies; therefore this evil has happened to you, as at this day."

Jeremiah 44:24
Moreover Jeremiah said to all the people, and to all the women, "Hear the word of the Lord, all Judah who [are] in the land of Egypt.

Jeremiah 44:25
'Thus the Lord of hosts says, the God of Israel, saying; 'You and your wives have both spoken with your mouths, and fulfilled with your hand, saying, 'We will surely perform our vows that we have vowed, to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings to her,' you will surely accomplish your vows, and surely perform your vows.

Jeremiah 44:26
Therefore hear the word of the Lord, all Judah who dwell in the land of Egypt; 'Behold, I have sworn by My great name,' the Lord says, 'That My name will no longer be named in the mouth of any man of Judah in all the land of Egypt, saying, 'The Lord God lives.'

Jeremiah 44:27
Behold, I will watch over them for evil, and not for good, and all the men of Judah who [are] in the land of Egypt will be consumed by the sword and by the famine, until there is an end of them.

Jeremiah 44:28
Yet a small number who escape the sword will return out of the land of Egypt into the land of Judah, and all the remnant of Judah, who have gone into the land of Egypt to sojourn there, will know whose words will stand, Mine, or theirs.

Jeremiah 44:29
And this [will be] a sign to you,' the Lord says, 'That I will punish you in this place, that you may know that My words will surely stand against you for evil.'

Jeremiah 44:30
Thus the Lord says; 'Behold, I will give Pharaohhophra, king of Egypt, into the hand of his enemies, and into the hand of those who seek his life; as I gave Zedekiah, king of Judah, into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon, his enemy, and who sought his life.'"

Jeremiah 45:1
The word that Jeremiah the prophet spoke to Baruch, the son of Neriah, when he had written these words in a book at the mouth of Jeremiah, in the fourth year of Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah, king of Judah, saying,

Jeremiah 45:2
"Thus the Lord says, the God of Israel, to you, O Baruch;

Jeremiah 45:3
'You did say, 'Woe is me now!  For the Lord has added grief to my sorrow; I fainted in my sighing, and I find no rest.'

Jeremiah 45:4
Thus you will say to him, 'The Lord thus says; 'Behold, [that] which I have built, I will break down, and that which I have planted, I will pluck up, even this whole land.

Jeremiah 45:5
And do you seek great things for yourself?  Do not seek [them], for, behold, I will bring evil upon all flesh,' the Lord says, 'But I will give your life to you for a prey in all places where you go.'"

Jeremiah 46:1
The word of the Lord which came to Jeremiah the prophet against the Gentiles;

Jeremiah 46:2
Against Egypt, against the army of Pharaohnecho king of Egypt, which was by the river Euphrates in Carchemish, which Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon, struck in the fourth year of Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah, king of Judah.

Jeremiah 46:3
"Order the buckler and shield, and draw near to battle.

Jeremiah 46:4
Harness the horses; and get up, you horsemen, and stand forth with [your] helmets; furbish the spears, [and] put on the brigandines.

Jeremiah 46:5
Why have I seen them dismayed [and] turned away back?  And their mighty ones are beaten down, and have fled apace, and do not look back, [for] fear [was] round about," the Lord says.

Jeremiah 46:6
"Do not let the swift flee away, nor the mighty man escape; they will stumble, and fall toward the north by the river Euphrates.

Jeremiah 46:7
Who [is] this [who] comes up as a flood, whose waters are moved as the rivers?

Jeremiah 46:8
Egypt rises up like a flood, and [his] waters are moved like the rivers; and he says, 'I will go up, [and] will cover the earth;' I will destroy the city and the inhabitants thereof.

Jeremiah 46:9
Come up, you horses; and rage, you chariots; and let the mighty men come forth; the Ethiopians and the Libyans, who handle the shield; and the Lydians, who handle [and] bend the bow.

Jeremiah 46:10
For this [is] the day of the Lord God of hosts, a day of vengeance, that He may avenge Himself of His adversaries, and the sword will devour, and it will be satiate and made drunk with their blood, for the Lord God of hosts has a sacrifice in the north country by the river Euphrates.

Jeremiah 46:11
Go up into Gilead, and take balm, O virgin, the daughter of Egypt, you will use many medicines in vain; [for] you will not be cured.

Jeremiah 46:12
The nations have heard of your shame, and your cry has filled the land, for the mighty man has stumbled against the mighty, [and] they have both fallen together."

Jeremiah 46:13
The word that the Lord spoke to Jeremiah the prophet, how Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon should come [and] strike the land of Egypt.

Jeremiah 46:14
"Declare in Egypt, and publish in Migdol, and publish in Noph and in Tahpanhes, say, 'Stand fast, and prepare; for the sword will devour around you.

Jeremiah 46:15
Why are your valiant [men] swept away?  They did not stand, because the Lord drove them.

Jeremiah 46:16
He made many fall, indeed, one fell upon another, and they said, 'Arise, and let us go again to our own people, and to the land of our nativity, from the oppressing sword.'

Jeremiah 46:17

Jeremiah 52:5
So the city was besieged to the eleventh year of king Zedekiah.

Jeremiah 52:6
And in the fourth month, in the ninth [day] of the month, the famine was sore in the city, so that there was no bread for the people of the land.

Jeremiah 52:7
Then the city was broken up, and all the men of war fled, and went forth out of the city by night by the way of the gate between the two walls, which [was] by the king's garden; (now the Chaldeans [were] by the city round about) and they went by the way of the plain.

Then they took the king, and carried him up to the king of Babylon to Riblah in the land of Hamath; where he gave judgment upon him.

Jeremiah 52:10
And the king of Babylon slew the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes, he also slew all the princes of Judah in Riblah.

Jeremiah 52:12
Now in the fifth month, in the tenth [day] of the month, which [was] the nineteenth year of Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon, Nebuzaradan came, captain of the guard, [who] served the king of Babylon, into Jerusalem,
Jeremiah 52:13
And burned the House of the Lord, *17:7 and the king's house; and all the houses of Jerusalem, and all the houses of the great [men], he burned with fire.

Jeremiah 52:14
And all the army of the Chaldeans, who [were] with the captain of the guard, broke down all the walls of Jerusalem round about.

Jeremiah 52:15
Then Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard, carried away [some] of the poor of the people captive, and the residue of the people who remained in the city, and those who fell away, who fell to the king of Babylon, and the rest of the multitude.

Jeremiah 52:16
But Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard, left [some] of the poor of the land for vinedressers and for husbandmen.

Jeremiah 52:17
Also, the pillars of brass that [were] in the House of the Lord, and the bases, and the brazen sea that [was] in the House of the Lord, the Chaldeans broke, and carried all the brass of them to Babylon.

Jeremiah 52:18
The caldrons also, and the shovels, and the tongs, and the bowls, and the spoons, and all the vessels of brass whereby they ministered, they took away.

Jeremiah 52:19
And the basins, and the firepans, and the bowls, and the caldrons, and the candlesticks, and the spoons, and the cups; [that] which [was] of gold [in] gold, and [that] which [was] of silver [in] silver, the captain of the guard took away.

Jeremiah 52:20
The two pillars, one sea, and twelve brazen bulls that [were] under the bases, which king Solomon had made in the House of the Lord, the brass of all these vessels was without weight.

Jeremiah 52:21
And [concerning] the pillars, the height of one pillar [was] eighteen cubits; and a fillet of twelve cubits encompassed it; and the thickness thereof [was] four fingers, [it was] hollow.

Jeremiah 52:22
And a chapiter of brass [was] upon it; and the height of one chapiter [was] five cubits, with network and pomegranates upon the chapiters round about, all [of] brass.  The second pillar also and the pomegranates [were] like these.

Jeremiah 52:23
And there were ninety six pomegranates on a side; [and] all the pomegranates upon the network [were] a hundred round about.

Jeremiah 52:24
And the captain of the guard took Seraiah the chief priest, and Zephaniah the second priest, and the three keepers of the door.

Jeremiah 52:25
He also took an eunuch out of the city, who had the charge of the men of war; and seven men of those who were near the king's person, who were found in the city; and the principal scribe of the host, who mustered the people of the land; and sixty men of the people of the land, who were found in the midst of the city.

Jeremiah 52:26
So Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard, took them, and brought them to the king of Babylon to Riblah.

Jeremiah 52:27
And the king of Babylon struck them, and put them to death in Riblah, in the land of Hamath.  Thus Judah was carried away captive out of his own land.

Jeremiah 52:28
This [is] the people whom Nebuchadrezzar carried away captive, in the seventh year, three thousand and twenty three Jews.

Jeremiah 52:29
In the eighteenth year of Nebuchadrezzar, he carried away captive, eight hundred [and] thirty two persons from Jerusalem.

Jeremiah 52:30
In the twenty third year of Nebuchadrezzar, Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard, carried away captive, seven hundred forty five persons of the Jews, all the persons [were] four thousand six hundred.

Jeremiah 52:31
And it came to pass in the thirty seventh year of the captivity of Jehoiachin, king of Judah, in the twelfth month, in the twenty fifth [day] of the month, [that] Evilmerodach, king of Babylon, in the [first] year of his reign, lifted up the head of Jehoiachin, king of Judah, and brought him forth out of prison,

Jeremiah 52:32
And spoke kindly to him, and set his throne above the throne of the kings who [were] with him in Babylon,

Jeremiah 52:33
And changed his prison garments, and he continually ate bread before him all the days of his life.

Jeremiah 52:34
And [for] his diet, there was a continual diet given to him of the king of Babylon, every day a portion, until the day of his death, all the days of his life.
