The Basic Truths Of Life!

TRUTHS

The BibleEveryone that ever walked on this planet must come to terms in this life with some basic TRUTHS. These will be the basic truths that no one can argue with, if they are sane. Of course, if you believe what God says in His Own BOOK about you, then you will have no problem with accepting these basic truths.

1. The Brevity Of Life

"For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away." (James 4:14b) Our life is brief! like a vapor, or like smoke. "Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth? are not his days also like the days of an hireling?" (Job 7:1) He is born, and then he will die! This is certain! (The exception being Enoch and Elijah, and also, those believers in Jesus Christ who are alive when He comes for His Church.)

2. The Brevity Of Your Remembrance

You will soon be forgotten. A man is remembered only a little while, and then he is forgotten. "He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him anymore. Are not my days few? cease then, and let me alone, that I may take comfort a little, Before I go whence I shall not return, even to the land of darkness and the shadow of death; A land of darkness, as darkness itself; and of the shadow of death, without any order, and where the light is as darkness." (Job 7:10 & 10:20-22)

3. The Sureness Of Trouble

Life is bale full of troubles. I have also found this very true!!! "Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not." (Job 14:1).

4. The Verity Of The White Throne Judgment

"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment" (Hebrews 9:27). You will not miss this one unless YOU ARE HID in the CLEFT OF THE ROCK!

5. The Eternality And The Finality Of What You Do With Jesus Christ:

We will all be held accountable over this issue. It is a hard fact of life, my friend. Now will you take God's offer of eternal life ... purchased by His Son ... for all those who will put their trust in Him ... a thumbs down? You will everlastingly suffer the consequences!

6. That Men Never Learn From History

We learn from History That Men Never Learn From History! It is a heart problem! Men refuse to learn the "lessons" afforded by the light of HISTORY: the recorded historical events which occurred as fulfillment of Bible prophecy. Now, these are the basic truths with which we all must deal with one way or another!

7. What Should You Do?

"But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved"; [Romans 10:8-13]

BibleThis is God's Holy WORD to you and I! Do you believe it? The A.V.1611 (or The King James Bible) is God's word PRESERVED in the English language for you and me. It came from the English Reformation. This Bible declares that: "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." [2 Timothy 3:16] God's inspired word is preserved in the A.V.1611. The word "preserved" means maintained inspiration. "The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in the furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever." [Psalm 12:6-7] “PRESERVE.” .

LONG HOME

demo Everybody is going home someday. Everybody is going to their LONG HOME. When you die, you are going to go to your “long home” whether, it be in “Heaven” or in “Hell”. Do you realize that truth? “Also when they shall be afraid of that which is high, and fears shall be in the way, and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail: because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets:” [Ecclesiastes 12:5].

The Book of The Prophet Jeremiah

Jeremiah 1:1 The words of Jeremiah the son of Hilkiah, of the priests that
were in Anathoth in the land of Benjamin:

Jeremiah 1:2 To whom the word of the LORD came in the days of Josiah the son
of Amon king of Judah, in the thirteenth year of his reign.

Jeremiah 1:3 It came also in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of
Judah, unto the end of the eleventh year of Zedekiah the son of Josiah king of
Judah, unto the carrying away of Jerusalem captive in the fifth month.

Jeremiah 1:4 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou
camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet
unto the nations.

Jeremiah 1:6 Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a
child.

Jeremiah 1:7 But the LORD said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou
shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou
shalt speak.

Jeremiah 1:8 Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver
thee, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 1:9 Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the
LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth.

Jeremiah 1:10 See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the
kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to
build, and to plant.

Jeremiah 1:11 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Jeremiah,
what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree.

Jeremiah 1:12 Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will
hasten my word to perform it.

Jeremiah 1:13 And the word of the LORD came unto me the second time, saying,
What seest thou? And I said, I see a seething pot; and the face thereof is
toward the north.

Jeremiah 1:14 Then the LORD said unto me, Out of the north an evil shall
break forth upon all the inhabitants of the land.

Jeremiah 1:15 For, lo, I will call all the families of the kingdoms of the
north, saith the LORD; and they shall come, and they shall set every one his
throne at the entering of the gates of Jerusalem, and against all the walls
thereof round about, and against all the cities of Judah.

Jeremiah 1:16 And I will utter my judgments against them touching all their
wickedness, who have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, and
worshipped the works of their own hands.

Jeremiah 1:17 Thou therefore gird up thy loins, and arise, and speak unto
them all that I command thee: be not dismayed at their faces, lest I confound
thee before them.

Jeremiah 1:18 For, behold, I have made thee this day a defenced city, and an
iron pillar, and brazen walls against the whole land, against the kings of
Judah, against the princes thereof, against the priests thereof, and against
the people of the land.

Jeremiah 1:19 And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail
against thee; for I am with thee, saith the LORD, to deliver thee.

Jeremiah 2:1 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying,

Jeremiah 2:2 Go and cry in the ears of Jerusalem, saying, Thus saith the
LORD; I remember thee, the kindness of thy youth, the love of thine espousals,
when thou wentest after me in the wilderness, in a land that was not sown.

Jeremiah 2:3 Israel was holiness unto the LORD, and the firstfruits of his
increase: all that devour him shall offend; evil shall come upon them, saith
the LORD.

Jeremiah 2:4 Hear ye the word of the LORD, O house of Jacob, and all the
families of the house of Israel:

Jeremiah 2:5 Thus saith the LORD, What iniquity have your fathers found in
me, that they are gone far from me, and have walked after vanity, and are
become vain?

Jeremiah 2:6 Neither said they, Where is the LORD that brought us up out of
the land of Egypt, that led us through the wilderness, through a land of
deserts and of pits, through a land of drought, and of the shadow of death,
through a land that no man passed through, and where no man dwelt?

Jeremiah 2:7 And I brought you into a plentiful country, to eat the fruit
thereof and the goodness thereof; but when ye entered, ye defiled my land, and
made mine heritage an abomination.

Jeremiah 2:8 The priests said not, Where is the LORD? and they that handle
the law knew me not: the pastors also transgressed against me, and the
prophets prophesied by Baal, and walked after things that do not profit.

Jeremiah 2:9 Wherefore I will yet plead with you, saith the LORD, and with
your children's children will I plead.

Jeremiah 2:10 For pass over the isles of Chittim, and see; and send unto
Kedar, and consider diligently, and see if there be such a thing.

Jeremiah 2:11 Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but
my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit.

Jeremiah 2:12 Be astonished, O ye heavens, at this, and be horribly afraid,
be ye very desolate, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 2:13 For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me
the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns,
that can hold no water.

Jeremiah 2:14 Is Israel a servant? is he a homeborn slave? why is he
spoiled?

Jeremiah 2:15 The young lions roared upon him, and yelled, and they made his
land waste: his cities are burned without inhabitant.

Jeremiah 2:16 Also the children of Noph and Tahapanes have broken the crown
of thy head.

Jeremiah 2:17 Hast thou not procured this unto thyself, in that thou hast
forsaken the LORD thy God, when he led thee by the way?

Jeremiah 2:18 And now what hast thou to do in the way of Egypt, to drink the
waters of Sihor? or what hast thou to do in the way of Assyria, to drink the
waters of the river?

Jeremiah 2:19 Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings
shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and
bitter, that thou hast forsaken the LORD thy God, and that my fear is not in
thee, saith the Lord GOD of hosts.

Jeremiah 2:20 For of old time I have broken thy yoke, and burst thy bands;
and thou saidst, I will not transgress; when upon every high hill and under
every green tree thou wanderest, playing the harlot.

Jeremiah 2:21 Yet I had planted thee a noble vine, wholly a right seed: how
then art thou turned into the degenerate plant of a strange vine unto me?

Jeremiah 2:22 For though thou wash thee with nitre, and take thee much soap,
yet thine iniquity is marked before me, saith the Lord GOD.

Jeremiah 2:23 How canst thou say, I am not polluted, I have not gone after
Baalim? see thy way in the valley, know what thou hast done: thou art a swift
dromedary traversing her ways;

Jeremiah 2:24 A wild ass used to the wilderness, that snuffeth up the wind
at her pleasure; in her occasion who can turn her away? all they that seek her
will not weary themselves; in her month they shall find her.

Jeremiah 2:25 Withhold thy foot from being unshod, and thy throat from
thirst: but thou saidst, There is no hope: no; for I have loved strangers, and
after them will I go.

Jeremiah 2:26 As the thief is ashamed when he is found, so is the house of
Israel ashamed; they, their kings, their princes, and their priests, and their
prophets,

Jeremiah 2:27 Saying to a stock, Thou art my father; and to a stone, Thou
hast brought me forth: for they have turned their back unto me, and not their
face: but in the time of their trouble they will say, Arise, and save us.

Jeremiah 2:28 But where are thy gods that thou hast made thee? let them
arise, if they can save thee in the time of thy trouble: for according to the
number of thy cities are thy gods, O Judah.

Jeremiah 2:29 Wherefore will ye plead with me? ye all have transgressed
against me, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 2:30 In vain have I smitten your children; they received no
correction: your own sword hath devoured your prophets, like a destroying
lion.

Jeremiah 2:31 O generation, see ye the word of the LORD. Have I been a
wilderness unto Israel? a land of darkness? wherefore say my people, We are
lords; we will come no more unto thee?

Jeremiah 2:32 Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet my
people have forgotten me days without number.

Jeremiah 2:33 Why trimmest thou thy way to seek love? therefore hast thou
also taught the wicked ones thy ways.

Jeremiah 2:34 Also in thy skirts is found the blood of the souls of the poor
innocents: I have not found it by secret search, but upon all these.

Jeremiah 2:35 Yet thou sayest, Because I am innocent, surely his anger shall
turn from me. Behold, I will plead with thee, because thou sayest, I have not
sinned.

Jeremiah 2:36 Why gaddest thou about so much to change thy way? thou also
shalt be ashamed of Egypt, as thou wast ashamed of Assyria.

Jeremiah 2:37 Yea, thou shalt go forth from him, and thine hands upon thine
head: for the LORD hath rejected thy confidences, and thou shalt not prosper
in them.

Jeremiah 3:1 They say, If a man put away his wife, and she go from him, and
become another man's, shall he return unto her again? shall not that land be
greatly polluted? but thou hast played the harlot with many lovers; yet return
again to me, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 3:2 Lift up thine eyes unto the high places, and see where thou
hast not been lien with. In the ways hast thou sat for them, as the Arabian in
the wilderness; and thou hast polluted the land with thy whoredoms and with
thy wickedness.

Jeremiah 3:3 Therefore the showers have been withholden, and there hath been
no latter rain; and thou hadst a whore's forehead, thou refusedst to be
ashamed.

Jeremiah 3:4 Wilt thou not from this time cry unto me, My father, thou art
the guide of my youth?

Jeremiah 3:5 Will he reserve his anger for ever? will he keep it to the end?
Behold, thou hast spoken and done evil things as thou couldest.

Jeremiah 3:6 The LORD said also unto me in the days of Josiah the king, Hast
thou seen that which backsliding Israel hath done? she is gone up upon every
high mountain and under every green tree, and there hath played the harlot.

Jeremiah 3:7 And I said after she had done all these things, Turn thou unto
me. But she returned not. And her treacherous sister Judah saw it.

Jeremiah 3:8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel
committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet
her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.

Jeremiah 3:9 And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that
she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones and with stocks.

Jeremiah 3:10 And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not
turned unto me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 3:11 And the LORD said unto me, The backsliding Israel hath
justified herself more than treacherous Judah.

Jeremiah 3:12 Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return,
thou backsliding Israel, saith the LORD; and I will not cause mine anger to
fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith the LORD, and I will not keep anger
for ever.

Jeremiah 3:13 Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed
against the LORD thy God, and hast scattered thy ways to the strangers under
every green tree, and ye have not obeyed my voice, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 3:14 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married
unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will
bring you to Zion:

Jeremiah 3:15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which
shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.

Jeremiah 3:16 And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased
in the land, in those days, saith the LORD, they shall say no more, The ark of
the covenant of the LORD: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they
remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more.

Jeremiah 3:17 At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the LORD;
and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the LORD, to
Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their
evil heart.

Jeremiah 3:18 In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of
Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land
that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers.

Jeremiah 3:19 But I said, How shall I put thee among the children, and give
thee a pleasant land, a goodly heritage of the hosts of nations? and I said,
Thou shalt call me, My father; and shalt not turn away from me.

Jeremiah 3:20 Surely as a wife treacherously departeth from her husband, so
have ye dealt treacherously with me, O house of Israel, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 3:21 A voice was heard upon the high places, weeping and
supplications of the children of Israel: for they have perverted their way, and
they have forgotten the LORD their God.

Jeremiah 3:22 Return, ye backsliding children, and I will heal your
backslidings. Behold, we come unto thee; for thou art the LORD our God.

Jeremiah 3:23 Truly in vain is salvation hoped for from the hills, and from
the multitude of mountains: truly in the LORD our God is the salvation of
Israel.

Jeremiah 3:24 For shame hath devoured the labour of our fathers from our
youth; their flocks and their herds, their sons and their daughters.

Jeremiah 3:25 We lie down in our shame, and our confusion covereth us: for
we have sinned against the LORD our God, we and our fathers, from our youth
even unto this day, and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD our God.

Jeremiah 4:1 If thou wilt return, O Israel, saith the LORD, return unto me:
and if thou wilt put away thine abominations out of my sight, then shalt thou
not remove.

Jeremiah 4:2 And thou shalt swear, The LORD liveth, in truth, in judgment,
and in righteousness; and the nations shall bless themselves in him, and in
him shall they glory.

Jeremiah 4:3 For thus saith the LORD to the men of Judah and Jerusalem,
Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns.

Jeremiah 4:4 Circumcise yourselves to the LORD, and take away the foreskins
of your heart, ye men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: lest my fury come
forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your
doings.

Jeremiah 4:5 Declare ye in Judah, and publish in Jerusalem; and say, Blow ye
the trumpet in the land: cry, gather together, and say, Assemble yourselves,
and let us go into the defenced cities.

Jeremiah 4:6 Set up the standard toward Zion: retire, stay not: for I will
bring evil from the north, and a great destruction.

Jeremiah 4:7 The lion is come up from his thicket, and the destroyer of the
Gentiles is on his way; he is gone forth from his place to make thy land
desolate; and thy cities shall be laid waste, without an inhabitant.

Jeremiah 4:8 For this gird you with sackcloth, lament and howl: for the
fierce anger of the LORD is not turned back from us.

Jeremiah 4:9 And it shall come to pass at that day, saith the LORD, that the
heart of the king shall perish, and the heart of the princes; and the priests
shall be astonished, and the prophets shall wonder.

Jeremiah 4:10 Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! surely thou hast greatly deceived
this people and Jerusalem, saying, Ye shall have peace; whereas the sword
reacheth unto the soul.

Jeremiah 4:11 At that time shall it be said to this people and to Jerusalem,
A dry wind of the high places in the wilderness toward the daughter of my
people, not to fan, nor to cleanse,

Jeremiah 4:12 Even a full wind from those places shall come unto me: now
also will I give sentence against them.

Jeremiah 4:13 Behold, he shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be
as a whirlwind: his horses are swifter than eagles. Woe unto us! for we are
spoiled.

Jeremiah 4:14 O Jerusalem, wash thine heart from wickedness, that thou
mayest be saved. How long shall thy vain thoughts lodge within thee?

Jeremiah 4:15 For a voice declareth from Dan, and publisheth affliction from
mount Ephraim.

Jeremiah 4:16 Make ye mention to the nations; behold, publish against
Jerusalem, that watchers come from a far country, and give out their voice
against the cities of Judah.

Jeremiah 4:17 As keepers of a field, are they against her round about;
because she hath been rebellious against me, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 4:18 Thy way and thy doings have procured these things unto thee;
this is thy wickedness, because it is bitter, because it reacheth unto thine
heart.

Jeremiah 4:19 My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart
maketh a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because thou hast heard, O my
soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war.

Jeremiah 4:20 Destruction upon destruction is cried; for the whole land is
spoiled: suddenly are my tents spoiled, and my curtains in a moment.

Jeremiah 4:21 How long shall I see the standard, and hear the sound of the
trumpet?

Jeremiah 4:22 For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are
sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil,
but to do good they have no knowledge.

Jeremiah 4:23 I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void;
and the heavens, and they had no light.

Jeremiah 4:24 I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the
hills moved lightly.

Jeremiah 4:25 I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the
heavens were fled.

Jeremiah 4:26 I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and
all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by
his fierce anger.

Jeremiah 4:27 For thus hath the LORD said, The whole land shall be desolate;
yet will I not make a full end.

Jeremiah 4:28 For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be
black: because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent,
neither will I turn back from it.

Jeremiah 4:29 The whole city shall flee for the noise of the horsemen and
bowmen; they shall go into thickets, and climb up upon the rocks: every city
shall be forsaken, and not a man dwell therein.

Jeremiah 4:30 And when thou art spoiled, what wilt thou do? Though thou
clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest thee with ornaments of
gold, though thou rentest thy face with painting, in vain shalt thou make
thyself fair; thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life.

Jeremiah 4:31 For I have heard a voice as of a woman in travail, and the
anguish as of her that bringeth forth her first child, the voice of the
daughter of Zion, that bewaileth herself, that spreadeth her hands, saying,
Woe is me now! for my soul is wearied because of murderers.

Jeremiah 5:1 Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see
now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if
there be any that executeth judgment, that seeketh the truth; and I will
pardon it.

Jeremiah 5:2 And though they say, The LORD liveth; surely they swear
falsely.

Jeremiah 5:3 O LORD, are not thine eyes upon the truth? thou hast stricken
them, but they have not grieved; thou hast consumed them, but they have
refused to receive correction: they have made their faces harder than a rock;
they have refused to return.

Jeremiah 5:4 Therefore I said, Surely these are poor; they are foolish: for
they know not the way of the LORD, nor the judgment of their God.

Jeremiah 5:5 I will get me unto the great men, and will speak unto them; for
they have known the way of the LORD, and the judgment of their God: but these
have altogether broken the yoke, and burst the bonds.

Jeremiah 5:6 Wherefore a lion out of the forest shall slay them, and a wolf
of the evenings shall spoil them, a leopard shall watch over their cities:
every one that goeth out thence shall be torn in pieces: because their
transgressions are many, and their backslidings are increased.

Jeremiah 5:7 How shall I pardon thee for this? thy children have forsaken
me, and sworn by them that are no gods: when I had fed them to the full, they
then committed adultery, and assembled themselves by troops in the harlots'
houses.

Jeremiah 5:8 They were as fed horses in the morning: every one neighed after
his neighbour's wife.

Jeremiah 5:9 Shall I not visit for these things? saith the LORD: and shall
not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?

Jeremiah 5:10 Go ye up upon her walls, and destroy; but make not a full end:
take away her battlements; for they are not the LORD'S.

Jeremiah 5:11 For the house of Israel and the house of Judah have dealt very
treacherously against me, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 5:12 They have belied the LORD, and said, It is not he; neither
shall evil come upon us; neither shall we see sword nor famine:

Jeremiah 5:13 And the prophets shall become wind, and the word is not in
them: thus shall it be done unto them.

Jeremiah 5:14 Wherefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, Because ye speak
this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people
wood, and it shall devour them.

Jeremiah 5:15 Lo, I will bring a nation upon you from far, O house of
Israel, saith the LORD: it is a mighty nation, it is an ancient nation, a
nation whose language thou knowest not, neither understandest what they say.

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

Jeremiah 5:17 And they shall eat up thine harvest, and thy bread, which thy
sons and thy daughters should eat: they shall eat up thy flocks and thine
herds: they shall eat up thy vines and thy fig trees: they shall impoverish
thy fenced cities, wherein thou trustedst, with the sword.

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

Jeremiah 5:19 And it shall come to pass, when ye shall say, Wherefore doeth
the LORD our God all these things unto us? then shalt thou answer them, Like
as ye have forsaken me, and served strange gods in your land, so shall ye
serve strangers in a land that is not yours.

Jeremiah 5:20 Declare this in the house of Jacob, and publish it in Judah,
saying,

Jeremiah 5:21 Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding;
which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not:

Jeremiah 5:22 Fear ye not me? saith the LORD: will ye not tremble at my
presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual
decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves,
yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it?

Jeremiah 5:23 But this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they
are revolted and gone.

Jeremiah 5:24 Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the LORD our
God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he
reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest.

Jeremiah 5:25 Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins
have withholden good things from you.

Jeremiah 5:26 For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he
that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men.

Jeremiah 5:27 As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of
deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich.

Jeremiah 5:28 They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds
of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they
prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge.

Jeremiah 5:29 Shall I not visit for these things? saith the LORD: shall not
my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?

Jeremiah 5:30 A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land;

Jeremiah 5:31 The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by
their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end
thereof?

Jeremiah 6:1 O ye children of Benjamin, gather yourselves to flee out of the
midst of Jerusalem, and blow the trumpet in Tekoa, and set up a sign of fire
in Bethhaccerem: for evil appeareth out of the north, and great destruction.

Jeremiah 6:2 I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate
woman.

Jeremiah 6:3 The shepherds with their flocks shall come unto her; they shall
pitch their tents against her round about; they shall feed every one in his
place.

Jeremiah 6:4 Prepare ye war against her; arise, and let us go up at noon.
Woe unto us! for the day goeth away, for the shadows of the evening are
stretched out.

Jeremiah 6:5 Arise, and let us go by night, and let us destroy her palaces.

Jeremiah 6:6 For thus hath the LORD of hosts said, Hew ye down trees, and
cast a mount against Jerusalem: this is the city to be visited; she is wholly
oppression in the midst of her.

Jeremiah 6:7 As a fountain casteth out her waters, so she casteth out her
wickedness: violence and spoil is heard in her; before me continually is grief
and wounds.

Jeremiah 6:8 Be thou instructed, O Jerusalem, lest my soul depart from thee;
lest I make thee desolate, a land not inhabited.

Jeremiah 6:9 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, They shall thoroughly glean the
remnant of Israel as a vine: turn back thine hand as a grapegatherer into the
baskets.

Jeremiah 6:10 To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear?
behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot hearken: behold, the word
of the LORD is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it.

Jeremiah 6:11 Therefore I am full of the fury of the LORD; I am weary with
holding in: I will pour it out upon the children abroad, and upon the assembly
of young men together: for even the husband with the wife shall be taken, the
aged with him that is full of days.

Jeremiah 6:12 And their houses shall be turned unto others, with their
fields and wives together: for I will stretch out my hand upon the inhabitants
of the land, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 6:13 For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them
every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest
every one dealeth falsely.

Jeremiah 6:14 They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people
slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.

Jeremiah 6:15 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay,
they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall
fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast
down, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 6:16 Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask
for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find
rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.

Jeremiah 6:17 Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of
the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.

Jeremiah 6:18 Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is
among them.

Jeremiah 6:19 Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even
the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words,
nor to my law, but rejected it.

Jeremiah 6:20 To what purpose cometh there to me incense from Sheba, and the
sweet cane from a far country? your burnt offerings are not acceptable, nor
your sacrifices sweet unto me.

Jeremiah 6:21 Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will lay
stumblingblocks before this people, and the fathers and the sons together
shall fall upon them; the neighbour and his friend shall perish.

Jeremiah 6:22 Thus saith the LORD, Behold, a people cometh from the north
country, and a great nation shall be raised from the sides of the earth.

Jeremiah 6:23 They shall lay hold on bow and spear; they are cruel, and have
no mercy; their voice roareth like the sea; and they ride upon horses, set in
array as men for war against thee, O daughter of Zion.

Jeremiah 6:24 We have heard the fame thereof: our hands wax feeble: anguish
hath taken hold of us, and pain, as of a woman in travail.

Jeremiah 6:25 Go not forth into the field, nor walk by the way; for the
sword of the enemy and fear is on every side.

Jeremiah 6:26 O daughter of my people, gird thee with sackcloth, and wallow
thyself in ashes: make thee mourning, as for an only son, most bitter
lamentation: for the spoiler shall suddenly come upon us.

Jeremiah 6:27 I have set thee for a tower and a fortress among my people,
that thou mayest know and try their way.

Jeremiah 6:28 They are all grievous revolters, walking with slanders: they
are brass and iron; they are all corrupters.

Jeremiah 6:29 The bellows are burned, the lead is consumed of the fire; the
founder melteth in vain: for the wicked are not plucked away.

Jeremiah 6:30 Reprobate silver shall men call them, because the LORD hath
rejected them.

Jeremiah 7:1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,

Jeremiah 7:2 Stand in the gate of the Lord's house, and proclaim there this
word, and say, Hear the word of the LORD, all ye of Judah, that enter in at
these gates to worship the LORD.

Jeremiah 7:3 Thus saith the LORD 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 Trust ye not 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 ye thoroughly amend your ways and your doings; if ye
thoroughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbour;

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

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

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

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

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 Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of
robbers in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it, saith the LORD.

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

Jeremiah 7:13 And now, because ye have done all these works, saith the LORD,
and I spake unto you, rising up early and speaking, but ye heard not; and I
called you, but ye answered not;

Jeremiah 7:14 Therefore will I do unto this house, which is called by my
name, wherein ye trust, and unto the place which I gave to you and to 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 pray not thou for this people, neither lift up cry
nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to me: for I will not hear
thee.

Jeremiah 7:17 Seest thou not 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 unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.

Jeremiah 7:19 Do they provoke me to anger? saith the LORD: do they not
provoke themselves to the confusion of their own faces?

Jeremiah 7:20 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, mine anger and my
fury shall 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 shall burn,
and shall not be quenched.

Jeremiah 7:21 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Put your
burnt offerings unto your sacrifices, and eat flesh.

Jeremiah 7:22 For I spake not unto your fathers, nor commanded 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 ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that
I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.

Jeremiah 7:24 But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but 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 unto this day I have even sent unto you all my servants the prophets,
daily rising up early and sending them:

Jeremiah 7:26 Yet they hearkened not unto me, nor inclined their ear, but
hardened their neck: they did worse than their fathers.

Jeremiah 7:27 Therefore thou shalt speak all these words unto them; but they
will not hearken to thee: thou shalt also call unto them; but they will not
answer thee.

Jeremiah 7:28 But thou shalt say unto them, This is a nation that obeyeth
not the voice of the LORD their God, nor receiveth correction: truth is
perished, and is cut off from their mouth.

Jeremiah 7:29 Cut off thine hair, O Jerusalem, and cast it away, and take up
a lamentation on high places; for the LORD hath rejected and forsaken the
generation of his wrath.

Jeremiah 7:30 For the children of Judah have done evil in my sight, saith
the LORD: 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 commanded them not, neither came it into my heart.

Jeremiah 7:32 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it
shall no more be called Tophet, nor the valley of the son of Hinnom, but the
valley of slaughter: for they shall bury in Tophet, till there be no place.

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

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

Jeremiah 8:1 At that time, saith the LORD, they shall 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 shall 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
worshipped: they shall not be gathered, nor be buried; they shall be for dung
upon the face of the earth.

Jeremiah 8:3 And death shall be chosen rather than life by all the residue
of them that remain of this evil family, which remain in all the places
whither I have driven them, saith the LORD of hosts.

Jeremiah 8:4 Moreover thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD; Shall
they fall, and not arise? shall 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 hearkened and heard, but they spake not aright: no man
repented him of his wickedness, saying, What have I done? every one turned to
his course, as the horse rusheth into the battle.

Jeremiah 8:7 Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and
the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but
my people know not the judgment of the LORD.

Jeremiah 8:8 How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us?
Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain.

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

Jeremiah 8:10 Therefore will I give their wives unto others, and their
fields to them that shall inherit them: for every one from the least even unto
the greatest is given to covetousness, from the prophet even unto the priest
every one dealeth 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? nay,
they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they
fall among them that fall: in the time of their visitation they shall be cast
down, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 8:13 I will surely consume them, saith the LORD: there shall be no
grapes on the vine, nor figs on the fig tree, and the leaf shall fade; and the
things that I have given them shall pass away from them.

Jeremiah 8:14 Why do we sit still? assemble yourselves, and let us enter
into the defenced cities, and let us be silent there: for the LORD our God
hath 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 are come,
and have devoured the land, and all that is in it; the city, and those that
dwell therein.

Jeremiah 8:17 For, behold, I will send serpents, cockatrices, among you,
which will not be charmed, and they shall bite you, saith the LORD.

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 them that dwell in a far country: Is not the LORD in Zion? is not
her king in her? Why have they provoked me to anger with their graven images,
and with strange vanities?

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

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

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

Jeremiah 9:1 Oh that my head were waters, and mine 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 be 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 know not me, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 9:4 Take ye heed every one of his neighbour, and trust ye not in
any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbour will
walk with slanders.

Jeremiah 9:5 And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not
speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary
themselves to commit iniquity.

Jeremiah 9:6 Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they
refuse to know me, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 9:7 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, I will melt
them, and try them; for how shall I do for the daughter of my people?

Jeremiah 9:8 Their tongue is as an arrow shot out; it speaketh deceit: one
speaketh peaceably to his neighbour with his mouth, but in heart he layeth his
wait.

Jeremiah 9:9 Shall I not visit them for these things? saith the LORD: shall
not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?

Jeremiah 9:10 For the mountains will I 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 are 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, that may understand this? and who is he
to whom the mouth of the LORD hath spoken, that he may declare it, for what
the land perisheth and is burned up like a wilderness, that none passeth
through?

Jeremiah 9:13 And the LORD saith, 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 thus saith the LORD of hosts, 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
nor their fathers have known: and I will send a sword after them, till I have
consumed them.

Jeremiah 9:17 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Consider ye, 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 are we
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 ye women, and let your ear
receive the word of his mouth, and teach your daughters wailing, and every one
her neighbour lamentation.

Jeremiah 9:21 For death is come up into our windows, and is entered into our
palaces, to cut off the children from without, and the young men from the
streets.

Jeremiah 9:22 Speak, Thus saith the LORD, Even the carcases of men shall
fall as dung upon the open field, and as the handful after the harvestman, and
none shall gather them.

Jeremiah 9:23 Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,
neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in
his riches:

Jeremiah 9:24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth
and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment,
and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the
LORD.

Jeremiah 9:25 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will punish all
them which are circumcised with the uncircumcised;

Jeremiah 9:26 Egypt, and Judah, and Edom, and the children of Ammon, and
Moab, and all that are in the utmost corners, that 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 ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of
Israel:

Jeremiah 10:2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be
not 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 cutteth a tree
out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the ax.

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

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

Jeremiah 10:6 Forasmuch as there is none like unto thee, O LORD; thou art
great, and thy name is great in might.

Jeremiah 10:7 Who would not fear thee, O King of nations? for to thee doth
it appertain: forasmuch as among all the wise men of the nations, and in all
their kingdoms, there is none like unto thee.

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 is 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: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall
not be able to abide his indignation.

Jeremiah 10:11 Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the
heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under
these heavens.

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

Jeremiah 10:13 When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in
the heavens, and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth;
he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth 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: in the time of their
visitation they shall perish.

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 thy wares out of the land, O inhabitant of the
fortress.

Jeremiah 10:18 For thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will sling out the
inhabitants of the land at this 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 a grief, and I must bear it.

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

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

Jeremiah 10:22 Behold, the noise of the bruit is 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 that walketh to direct his steps.

Jeremiah 10:24 O LORD, correct me, but with judgment; not in thine anger,
lest thou bring me to nothing.

Jeremiah 10:25 Pour out thy fury upon the heathen that know thee not, and
upon the families that call not on thy 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 ye the words of this covenant, and speak unto the men of
Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem;

Jeremiah 11:3 And say thou unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel;
Cursed be the man that obeyeth not 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 shall ye be my people,
and I will be your God:

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

Jeremiah 11:6 Then the LORD said unto me, Proclaim all these words in the
cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, saying, Hear ye the words of
this covenant, and do them.

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

Jeremiah 11:8 Yet they obeyed not, nor inclined their ear, but walked every
one 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 them
not.

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

Jeremiah 11:10 They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers,
which 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 thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon
them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto
me, I will not hearken unto them.

Jeremiah 11:12 Then shall the cities of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem
go, and cry unto the gods unto whom they offer incense: but they shall not
save them at all in the time of their trouble.

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

Jeremiah 11:14 Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a
cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear them in the time that they cry
unto me for their trouble.

Jeremiah 11:15 What hath my beloved to do in mine house, seeing she hath
wrought lewdness with many, and the holy flesh is passed from thee? when thou
doest evil, then thou rejoicest.

Jeremiah 11:16 The LORD called thy name, A green olive tree, fair, and of
goodly fruit: with the noise of a great tumult he hath kindled fire upon it,
and the branches of it are broken.

Jeremiah 11:17 For the LORD of hosts, that planted thee, hath pronounced
evil against thee, 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 unto Baal.

Jeremiah 11:18 And the LORD hath given me knowledge of it, and I know it:
then thou showedst me their doings.

Jeremiah 11:19 But I was like a lamb or an ox that is brought to the
slaughter; and I knew not 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 more remembered.

Jeremiah 11:20 But, O LORD of hosts, that judgest righteously, that triest
the reins and the heart, let me see thy vengeance on them: for unto thee have
I revealed my cause.

Jeremiah 11:21 Therefore thus saith the LORD of the men of Anathoth, that
seek thy life, saying, Prophesy not in the name of the LORD, that thou die not
by our hand:

Jeremiah 11:22 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, I will punish
them: the young men shall die by the sword; their sons and their daughters
shall die by famine:

Jeremiah 11:23 And there shall 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 art thou, O LORD, when I plead with thee: yet let me
talk with thee of thy judgments: Wherefore doth the way of the wicked prosper?
wherefore are all they happy that deal very treacherously?

Jeremiah 12:2 Thou hast planted them, yea, they have taken root: they grow,
yea, they bring forth fruit: thou art near in their mouth, and far from their
reins.

Jeremiah 12:3 But thou, O LORD, knowest me: thou hast seen me, and tried
mine heart toward thee: pull them out like sheep for the slaughter, and
prepare them for the day of slaughter.

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

Jeremiah 12:5 If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee,
then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein
thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of
Jordan?

Jeremiah 12:6 For even thy brethren, and the house of thy father, even they
have dealt treacherously with thee; yea, they have called a multitude after
thee: believe them not, though they speak fair words unto thee.

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

Jeremiah 12:8 Mine heritage is unto me as a lion in the forest; it crieth
out against me: therefore have I hated it.

Jeremiah 12:9 Mine heritage is unto me as a speckled bird, the birds round
about are against her; come ye, 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 mourneth
unto me; the whole land is made desolate, because no man layeth it to heart.

Jeremiah 12:12 The spoilers are come upon all high places through the
wilderness: for the sword of the LORD shall devour from the one end of the
land even to the other end of the land: no flesh shall have peace.

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

Jeremiah 12:14 Thus saith the LORD against all mine evil neighbours, that
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 shall come to pass, after that 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 shall come to pass, if they will diligently learn the
ways of my people, to swear by my name, The LORD liveth; as they taught my
people to swear by Baal; then shall they 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, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 13:1 Thus saith the LORD unto me, Go and get thee a linen girdle,
and put it upon thy loins, and put it not 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 unto me the second time, saying,

Jeremiah 13:4 Take the girdle that thou hast got, which is upon thy 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 unto
me, Arise, go to Euphrates, and take the girdle from thence, which I commanded
thee to hide there.

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

Jeremiah 13:8 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Jeremiah 13:9 Thus saith the LORD, After this manner will I mar the pride of
Judah, and the great pride of Jerusalem.

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

Jeremiah 13:11 For as the girdle cleaveth to the loins of a man, so have I
caused to cleave unto me the whole house of Israel and the whole house of
Judah, saith the LORD; that they might be unto me for a people, and for a
name, and for a praise, and for a glory: but they would not hear.

Jeremiah 13:12 Therefore thou shalt speak unto them this word; Thus saith
the LORD God of Israel, Every bottle shall be filled with wine: and they shall
say unto thee, Do we not certainly know that every bottle shall be filled with
wine?

Jeremiah 13:13 Then shalt thou say unto them, Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I
will fill all the inhabitants of this land, even the kings that 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, saith the LORD: I will not pity, nor spare, nor have
mercy, but destroy them.

Jeremiah 13:15 Hear ye, and give ear; be not proud: for the LORD hath
spoken.

Jeremiah 13:16 Give glory to the LORD your God, before he cause darkness,
and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and, while ye look for
light, he turn it into the shadow of death, and make it gross darkness.

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

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

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

Jeremiah 13:20 Lift up your eyes, and behold them that come from the north:
where is the flock that was given thee, thy beautiful flock?

Jeremiah 13:21 What wilt thou say when he shall punish thee? for thou hast
taught them to be captains, and as chief over thee: shall not sorrows take
thee, as a woman in travail?

Jeremiah 13:22 And if thou say in thine heart, Wherefore come these things
upon me? For the greatness of thine iniquity are thy skirts discovered, and
thy heels made bare.

Jeremiah 13:23 Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots?
then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.

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

Jeremiah 13:25 This is thy lot, the portion of thy measures from me, saith
the LORD; because thou hast forgotten me, and trusted in falsehood.

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

Jeremiah 13:27 I have seen thine adulteries, and thy neighings, the lewdness
of thy whoredom, and thine abominations on the hills in the fields. Woe unto
thee, O Jerusalem! wilt thou not be made clean? when shall it once be?

Jeremiah 14:1 The word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah concerning the
dearth.

Jeremiah 14:2 Judah mourneth, and the gates thereof languish; they are black
unto the ground; and the cry of Jerusalem is 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 with their vessels
empty; 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 Yea, the hind also calved in the field, and forsook it,
because there was no grass.

Jeremiah 14:6 And the wild asses did stand in the high places, they snuffed
up the wind like dragons; their eyes did fail, because there was no grass.

Jeremiah 14:7 O LORD, though our iniquities testify against us, do thou it
for thy name's sake: for our backslidings are many; we have sinned against
thee.

Jeremiah 14:8 O the hope of Israel, the saviour thereof in time of trouble,
why shouldest thou be as a stranger in the land, and as a wayfaring man that
turneth aside to tarry for a night?

Jeremiah 14:9 Why shouldest thou be as a man astonied, as a mighty man that
cannot save? yet thou, O LORD, art in the midst of us, and we are called by
thy name; leave us not.

Jeremiah 14:10 Thus saith the LORD unto this people, Thus have they loved to
wander, they have not refrained their feet, therefore the LORD doth not accept
them; he will now remember their iniquity, and visit their sins.

Jeremiah 14:11 Then said the LORD unto me, Pray not 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 said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, the prophets say unto
them, Ye shall not see the sword, neither shall ye have famine; but I will
give you assured peace in this place.

Jeremiah 14:14 Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my
name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them:
they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought,
and the deceit of their heart.

Jeremiah 14:15 Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that
prophesy in my name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall
not be in this land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.

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

Jeremiah 14:17 Therefore thou shalt say this word unto them; Let mine eyes
run down with tears night and day, and let them not 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 them that are sick with
famine! yea, both the prophet and the priest go about into a land that they
know not.

Jeremiah 14:19 Hast thou utterly rejected Judah? hath thy soul loathed Zion?
why hast thou smitten 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 thee.

Jeremiah 14:21 Do not abhor us, for thy name's sake, do not disgrace the
throne of thy glory: remember, break not thy covenant with us.

Jeremiah 14:22 Are there any among the vanities of the Gentiles that can
cause rain? or can the heavens give showers? art not thou he, O LORD our God?
therefore we will wait upon thee: for thou hast made all these things.

Jeremiah 15:1 Then said the LORD unto 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 shall come to pass, if they say unto thee, Whither
shall we go forth? then thou shalt tell them, Thus saith the LORD; Such as are
for death, to death; and such as are for the sword, to the sword; and such as
are for the famine, to the famine; and such as are for the captivity, to the
captivity.

Jeremiah 15:3 And I will appoint over them four kinds, saith the LORD: 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 shall have pity upon thee, O Jerusalem? or who shall
bemoan thee? or who shall go aside to ask how thou doest?

Jeremiah 15:6 Thou hast forsaken me, saith the LORD, thou art gone backward:
therefore will I stretch out my hand against thee, and destroy thee; 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 return not
from their ways.

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

Jeremiah 15:9 She that hath borne seven languisheth: she hath given up the
ghost; her sun is gone down while it was yet day: she hath been ashamed and
confounded: and the residue of them will I deliver to the sword before their
enemies, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 15:10 Woe is me, my mother, that thou hast 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 doth curse me.

Jeremiah 15:11 The LORD said, Verily it shall be well with thy remnant;
verily I will cause the enemy to entreat thee well in the time of evil and in
the time of affliction.

Jeremiah 15:12 Shall iron break the northern iron and the steel?

Jeremiah 15:13 Thy substance and thy treasures will I give to the spoil
without price, and that for all thy sins, even in all thy borders.

Jeremiah 15:14 And I will make thee to pass with thine enemies into a land
which thou knowest not: for a fire is kindled in mine anger, which shall burn
upon you.

Jeremiah 15:15 O LORD, thou knowest: remember me, and visit me, and revenge
me of my persecutors; take me not away in thy longsuffering: know that for thy
sake I have suffered rebuke.

Jeremiah 15:16 Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was
unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O
LORD God of hosts.

Jeremiah 15:17 I sat not in the assembly of the mockers, nor rejoiced; I sat
alone because of thy hand: for thou hast filled me with indignation.

Jeremiah 15:18 Why is my pain perpetual, and my wound incurable, which
refuseth to be healed? wilt thou be altogether unto me as a liar, and as
waters that fail?

Jeremiah 15:19 Therefore thus saith the LORD, If thou return, then will I
bring thee again, and thou shalt stand before me: and if thou take forth the
precious from the vile, thou shalt be as my mouth: let them return unto thee;
but return not thou unto them.

Jeremiah 15:20 And I will make thee unto this people a fenced brazen wall:
and they shall fight against thee, but they shall not prevail against thee:
for I am with thee to save thee and to deliver thee, saith the LORD.

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

Jeremiah 16:1 The word of the LORD came also unto me, saying,

Jeremiah 16:2 Thou shalt not take thee a wife, neither shalt thou have sons
or daughters in this place.

Jeremiah 16:3 For thus saith the LORD concerning the sons and concerning the
daughters that are born in this place, and concerning their mothers that bare
them, and concerning their fathers that begat them in this land;

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

Jeremiah 16:5 For thus saith the LORD, Enter not into the house of mourning,
neither go to lament nor bemoan them: for I have taken away my peace from this
people, saith the LORD, even lovingkindness and mercies.

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

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

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

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

Jeremiah 16:10 And it shall come to pass, when thou shalt show this people
all these words, and they shall say unto thee, Wherefore hath 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 shalt thou say unto them, Because your fathers have
forsaken me, saith the LORD, and have walked after other gods, and have served
them, and have worshipped them, and have forsaken me, and have not kept my
law;

Jeremiah 16:12 And ye have done worse than your fathers; for, behold, ye
walk every one after the imagination of his evil heart, that they may not
hearken unto me:

Jeremiah 16:13 Therefore will I cast you out of this land into a land that
ye know not, neither ye nor your fathers; and there shall ye serve other gods
day and night; where I will not show you favour.

Jeremiah 16:14 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it
shall no more be said, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel
out of the land of Egypt;

Jeremiah 16:15 But, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel
from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them:
and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.

Jeremiah 16:16 Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith the LORD, and
they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall
hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of
the rocks.

Jeremiah 16:17 For mine eyes are upon all their ways: they are not hid from
my face, neither is their iniquity hid from mine eyes.

Jeremiah 16:18 And first I will recompense their iniquity and their sin
double; because they have defiled my land, they have filled mine inheritance
with the carcases 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 shall come unto thee from the ends of the
earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and
things wherein there is no profit.

Jeremiah 16:20 Shall a man make gods unto himself, and they are no gods?

Jeremiah 16:21 Therefore, behold, I will this once cause them to know, I
will cause them to know mine hand and my might; and they shall 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 graven upon the table of their heart, and upon the
horns of your altars;

Jeremiah 17:2 Whilst 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 thy substance and all
thy treasures to the spoil, and thy high places for sin, throughout all thy
borders.

Jeremiah 17:4 And thou, even thyself, shalt discontinue from thine heritage
that I gave thee; and I will cause thee to serve thine enemies in the land
which thou knowest not: for ye have kindled a fire in mine anger, which shall
burn for ever.

Jeremiah 17:5 Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man,
and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.

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

Jeremiah 17:7 Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope
the LORD is.

Jeremiah 17:8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that
spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but
her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought,
neither shall 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 try 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 sitteth on eggs, and hatcheth them not; so
he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his
days, and at his end shall 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 that forsake thee shall be
ashamed, and they that depart from me shall 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 shall be healed; save me, and I shall
be saved: for thou art my praise.

Jeremiah 17:15 Behold, they say unto 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
thee: neither have I desired the woeful day; thou knowest: that which came out
of my lips was right before thee.

Jeremiah 17:17 Be not a terror unto me: thou art my hope in the day of evil.

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

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

Jeremiah 17:20 And say unto them, Hear ye the word of the LORD, ye kings of
Judah, and all Judah, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, that enter in by
these gates:

Jeremiah 17:21 Thus saith the LORD; 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 ye any work, but hallow ye the sabbath day, as I
commanded your fathers.

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

Jeremiah 17:24 And it shall come to pass, if ye diligently hearken unto me,
saith the LORD, to bring in no burden through the gates of this city on the
sabbath day, but hallow the sabbath day, to do no work therein;

Jeremiah 17:25 Then shall there enter into the gates of this city kings and
princes 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 shall remain for ever.

Jeremiah 17:26 And they shall 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, unto the house of the LORD.

Jeremiah 17:27 But if ye will not hearken unto me to hallow the sabbath day,
and not to bear a burden, even entering in at the gates of Jerusalem on the
sabbath day; then will I kindle a fire in the gates thereof, and it shall
devour the palaces of Jerusalem, and it shall 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 thee to hear my words.

Jeremiah 18:3 Then I went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he
wrought 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, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith
the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand,
O house of Israel.

Jeremiah 18:7 At what instant I shall 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, turn from
their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them.

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

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

Jeremiah 18:11 Now therefore go to, speak to the men of Judah, and to the
inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I frame evil
against you, and devise a device against you: return ye now every one 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 we will every one do the imagination of his evil heart.

Jeremiah 18:13 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Ask ye now among the heathen,
who hath heard such things: the virgin of Israel hath done a very horrible
thing.

Jeremiah 18:14 Will a man leave the snow of Lebanon which cometh from the
rock of the field? or shall the cold flowing waters that come from another
place be forsaken?

Jeremiah 18:15 Because my people hath forgotten me, they have burned incense
to vanity, and they have caused them 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; every
one that passeth thereby shall 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 said they, Come, and let us devise devices against
Jeremiah; for the law shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the
wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come, and let us smite 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 hearken to the voice of them
that contend with me.

Jeremiah 18:20 Shall evil be recompensed for good? for they have digged a
pit for my soul. Remember that I stood before thee to speak good for them, and
to turn away thy 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 thou shalt bring a
troop suddenly upon them: for they have digged a pit to take me, and hid
snares for my feet.

Jeremiah 18:23 Yet, LORD, thou knowest all their counsel against me to slay
me: forgive not their iniquity, neither blot out their sin from thy sight, but
let them be overthrown before thee; deal thus with them in the time of thine
anger.

Jeremiah 19:1 Thus saith the LORD, 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 unto the valley of the son of Hinnom, which is by
the entry of the east gate, and proclaim there the words that I shall tell
thee,

Jeremiah 19:3 And say, Hear ye the word of the LORD, O kings of Judah, and
inhabitants of Jerusalem; Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel;
Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, the which whosoever heareth, his
ears shall tingle.

Jeremiah 19:4 Because they have forsaken me, and have estranged this place,
and have burned incense in it unto other gods, whom neither they nor 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 unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake
it, neither came it into my mind:

Jeremiah 19:6 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that this
place shall no more be called Tophet, nor The valley of the son of Hinnom, but
The valley of slaughter.

Jeremiah 19:7 And I will make void the counsel of Judah and Jerusalem in
this place; and I will cause them to fall by the sword before their enemies,
and by the hands of them that seek their lives: and their carcases will I give
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 an hissing; every one
that passeth thereby shall 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 shall eat every one the flesh of his friend
in the siege and straitness, wherewith their enemies, and they that seek their
lives, shall straiten them.

Jeremiah 19:10 Then shalt thou break the bottle in the sight of the men that
go with thee.

Jeremiah 19:11 And shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Even
so will I break this people and this city, as one breaketh a potter's vessel,
that cannot be made whole again: and they shall bury them in Tophet, till
there be no place to bury.

Jeremiah 19:12 Thus will I do unto this place, saith the LORD, 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, shall be defiled as the place of Tophet, because of all the houses upon
whose roofs they have burned incense unto all the host of heaven, and have
poured out drink offerings unto other gods.

Jeremiah 19:14 Then came Jeremiah from Tophet, whither 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 saith the LORD of hosts, 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 smote 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 forth
Jeremiah out of the stocks. Then said Jeremiah unto him, The LORD hath not
called thy name Pashur, but Magormissabib.

Jeremiah 20:4 For thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will make thee a terror to
thyself, and to all thy friends: and they shall fall by the sword of their
enemies, and thine eyes shall behold it: and I will give all Judah into the
hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall carry them captive into Babylon, and
shall slay them with the sword.

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

Jeremiah 20:6 And thou, Pashur, and all that dwell in thine house shall go
into captivity: and thou shalt come to Babylon, and there thou shalt die, and
shalt be buried there, thou, and all thy friends, to whom thou hast prophesied
lies.

Jeremiah 20:7 O LORD, thou hast deceived me, and I was deceived: thou art
stronger than I, and hast prevailed: I am in derision daily, every one mocketh
me.

Jeremiah 20:8 For since I spake, I cried out, I cried violence and spoil;
because the word of the LORD was made a reproach unto me, and a derision,
daily.

Jeremiah 20:9 Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any
more in his name. But his word was in mine 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,
say they, and we will report it. All my familiars watched for my halting,
saying, Peradventure he will be enticed, and we shall prevail against him, and
we shall take our revenge on him.

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

Jeremiah 20:12 But, O LORD of hosts, that triest the righteous, and seest
the reins and the heart, let me see thy vengeance on them: for unto thee have
I opened my cause.

Jeremiah 20:13 Sing unto the LORD, praise ye the LORD: for he hath delivered
the soul of the poor from the hand of evildoers.

Jeremiah 20:14 Cursed be the day wherein I was born: let not the day wherein
my mother bare me be blessed.

Jeremiah 20:15 Cursed be the man who brought tidings to my father, saying, A
man child is born unto thee; making him very glad.

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

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

Jeremiah 20:18 Wherefore came I forth out of the womb to see labour and
sorrow, that my days should be consumed with shame?

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

Jeremiah 21:2 Inquire, I pray thee, of the LORD for us; for Nebuchadrezzar
king of Babylon maketh war against us; if so be that the LORD will deal with
us according to all his wondrous works, that he may go up from us.

Jeremiah 21:3 Then said Jeremiah unto them, Thus shall ye say to Zedekiah:

Jeremiah 21:4 Thus saith the LORD God of Israel; Behold, I will turn back
the weapons of war that are in your hands, wherewith ye fight against the king
of Babylon, and against the Chaldeans, which besiege you without 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 smite the inhabitants of this city, both man and
beast: they shall die of a great pestilence.

Jeremiah 21:7 And afterward, saith the LORD, I will deliver Zedekiah king of
Judah, and his servants, and the people, and such as 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 that seek their life: and he shall smite them with the edge
of the sword; he shall not spare them, neither have pity, nor have mercy.

Jeremiah 21:8 And unto this people thou shalt say, Thus saith the LORD;
Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the way of death.

Jeremiah 21:9 He that abideth in this city shall die by the sword, and by
the famine, and by the pestilence: but he that goeth out, and falleth to the
Chaldeans that besiege you, he shall live, and his life shall be unto him for
a prey.

Jeremiah 21:10 For I have set my face against this city for evil, and not
for good, saith the LORD: it shall be given into the hand of the king of
Babylon, and he shall burn it with fire.

Jeremiah 21:11 And touching the house of the king of Judah, say, Hear ye the
word of the LORD;

Jeremiah 21:12 O house of David, thus saith the LORD; Execute judgment in
the morning, and deliver him that is spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor,
lest my fury go out like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of
the evil of your doings.

Jeremiah 21:13 Behold, I am against thee, O inhabitant of the valley, and
rock of the plain, saith the LORD; which say, Who shall come down against us?
or who shall enter into our habitations?

Jeremiah 21:14 But I will punish you according to the fruit of your doings,
saith the LORD: and I will kindle a fire in the forest thereof, and it shall
devour all things round about it.

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

Jeremiah 22:2 And say, Hear the word of the LORD, O king of Judah, that
sittest upon the throne of David, thou, and thy servants, and thy people that
enter in by these gates:

Jeremiah 22:3 Thus saith the LORD; Execute ye 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 ye do this thing indeed, then shall there enter in by
the gates of this house kings sitting upon the throne of David, riding in
chariots and on horses, he, and his servants, and his people.

Jeremiah 22:5 But if ye will not hear these words, I swear by myself, saith
the LORD, that this house shall become a desolation.

Jeremiah 22:6 For thus saith the LORD unto the king's house of Judah; Thou
art Gilead unto me, and the head of Lebanon: yet surely I will make thee a
wilderness, and cities which are not inhabited.

Jeremiah 22:7 And I will prepare destroyers against thee, every one with his
weapons: and they shall cut down thy choice cedars, and cast them into the
fire.

Jeremiah 22:8 And many nations shall pass by this city, and they shall say
every man to his neighbour, Wherefore hath the LORD done thus unto this great
city?

Jeremiah 22:9 Then they shall answer, Because they have forsaken the
covenant of the LORD their God, and worshipped other gods, and served them.

Jeremiah 22:10 Weep ye not for the dead, neither bemoan him: but weep sore
for him that goeth away: for he shall return no more, nor see his native
country.

Jeremiah 22:11 For thus saith the LORD touching Shallum the son of Josiah
king of Judah, which reigned instead of Josiah his father, which went forth
out of this place; He shall not return thither any more:

Jeremiah 22:12 But he shall die in the place whither they have led him
captive, and shall see this land no more.

Jeremiah 22:13 Woe unto him that buildeth his house by unrighteousness, and
his chambers by wrong; that useth his neighbour's service without wages, and
giveth him not for his work;

Jeremiah 22:14 That saith, I will build me a wide house and large chambers,
and cutteth him out windows; and it is ceiled with cedar, and painted with
vermilion.

Jeremiah 22:15 Shalt thou reign, because thou closest thyself in cedar? did
not thy father 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 not this to know me? saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 22:17 But thine eyes and thine heart are not but for thy
covetousness, and for to shed innocent blood, and for oppression, and for
violence, to do it.

Jeremiah 22:18 Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning Jehoiakim the son of
Josiah king of Judah; They shall not lament for him, saying, Ah my brother!
or, Ah sister! they shall not lament for him, saying, Ah lord! or, Ah his
glory!

Jeremiah 22:19 He shall be buried with the burial of an ass, drawn and cast
forth beyond the gates of Jerusalem.

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

Jeremiah 22:21 I spake unto thee in thy prosperity; but thou saidst, I will
not hear. This hath been thy manner from thy youth, that thou obeyedst not my
voice.

Jeremiah 22:22 The wind shall eat up all thy pastors, and thy lovers shall
go into captivity: surely then shalt thou be ashamed and confounded for all
thy wickedness.

Jeremiah 22:23 O inhabitant of Lebanon, that makest thy nest in the cedars,
how gracious shalt thou be when pangs come upon thee, the pain as of a woman
in travail!

Jeremiah 22:24 As I live, saith the LORD, though Coniah the son of Jehoiakim
king of Judah were the signet upon my right hand, yet would I pluck thee
thence;

Jeremiah 22:25 And I will give thee into the hand of them that seek thy
life, and into the hand of them whose face thou fearest, even into the hand of
Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, and into the hand of the Chaldeans.

Jeremiah 22:26 And I will cast thee out, and thy mother that bare thee, into
another country, where ye were not born; and there shall ye die.

Jeremiah 22:27 But to the land whereunto they desire to return, thither
shall they not return.

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

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

Jeremiah 22:30 Thus saith the LORD, Write ye this man childless, a man that
shall not prosper in his days: for no man of his seed shall prosper, sitting
upon the throne of David, and ruling any more in Judah.

Jeremiah 23:1 Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of
my pasture! saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 23:2 Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel against the
pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away,
and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your
doings, saith the LORD.

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

Jeremiah 23:4 And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them:
and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking,
saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 23:5 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto
David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall
execute judgment and justice in the earth.

Jeremiah 23:6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell
safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR
RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Jeremiah 23:7 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they
shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel
out of the land of Egypt;

Jeremiah 23:8 But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed
of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries
whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.

Jeremiah 23:9 Mine heart within me is broken because of the prophets; all my
bones shake; I am like a drunken man, and like a man whom wine hath overcome,
because of the LORD, and because of the words of his holiness.

Jeremiah 23:10 For the land is full of adulterers; for because of swearing
the land mourneth; 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; yea, in my house
have I found their wickedness, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 23:12 Wherefore their way shall be unto them as slippery ways in
the darkness: they shall be driven on, and fall therein: for I will bring evil
upon them, even the year of their visitation, saith the LORD.

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 seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible
thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands
of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them
unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.

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

Jeremiah 23:16 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of
the prophets that prophesy unto 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 say still unto them that despise me, The LORD hath said,
Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the
imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you.

Jeremiah 23:18 For who hath stood in the counsel of the LORD, and hath
perceived and heard his word? who hath marked his word, and heard it?

Jeremiah 23:19 Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a
grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.

Jeremiah 23:20 The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have
executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter
days ye shall 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 them from their evil way, and
from the evil of their doings.

Jeremiah 23:23 Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off?

Jeremiah 23:24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see
him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 23:25 I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my
name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.

Jeremiah 23:26 How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that
prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;

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

Jeremiah 23:28 The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he
that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the
wheat? saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 23:29 Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a
hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?

Jeremiah 23:30 Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD,
that steal my words every one from his neighbour.

Jeremiah 23:31 Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use
their tongues, and say, He saith.

Jeremiah 23:32 Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith
the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by
their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall
not profit this people at all, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 23:33 And when this people, or the prophet, or a priest, shall ask
thee, saying, What is the burden of the LORD? thou shalt then say unto them,
What burden? I will even forsake you, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 23:34 And as for the prophet, and the priest, and the people, that
shall say, The burden of the LORD, I will even punish that man and his house.

Jeremiah 23:35 Thus shall ye say every one to his neighbour, and every one
to his brother, What hath the LORD answered? and, What hath the LORD spoken?

Jeremiah 23:36 And the burden of the LORD shall ye mention no more: for
every man's word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the
living God, of the LORD of hosts our God.

Jeremiah 23:37 Thus shalt thou say to the prophet, What hath the LORD
answered thee? and, What hath the LORD spoken?

Jeremiah 23:38 But since ye say, The burden of the LORD; therefore thus
saith the LORD; Because ye say this word, The burden of the LORD, and I have
sent unto you, saying, Ye shall 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 shall 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 captive Jeconiah 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.

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

Jeremiah 24:3 Then said the LORD unto me, What seest thou, 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 unto me, saying,

Jeremiah 24:5 Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these good figs,
so will I acknowledge them that 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 mine 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 an heart to know me, that I am the LORD:
and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return
unto me with their whole heart.

Jeremiah 24:8 And as the evil figs, which cannot be eaten, they are so evil;
surely thus saith the LORD, So will I give Zedekiah the king of Judah, and his
princes, and the residue of Jerusalem, that remain in this land, and them that
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 whither I shall drive them.

Jeremiah 24:10 And I will send the sword, the famine, and the pestilence,
among them, till they be consumed from off the land that I gave unto 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 The which Jeremiah the prophet spake unto 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 unto this day, that is the three and twentieth year, the word of
the LORD hath come unto me, and I have spoken unto you, rising early and
speaking; but ye have not hearkened.

Jeremiah 25:4 And the LORD hath sent unto you all his servants the prophets,
rising early and sending them; but ye have not hearkened, nor inclined your
ear to hear.

Jeremiah 25:5 They said, Turn ye again now every one from his evil way, and
from the evil of your doings, and dwell in the land that the LORD hath given
unto you and to your fathers for ever and ever:

Jeremiah 25:6 And go not 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 ye have not hearkened unto me, saith the LORD; that ye
might provoke me to anger with the works of your hands to your own hurt.

Jeremiah 25:8 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Because ye have not
heard my words,

Jeremiah 25:9 Behold, I will send and take all the families of the north,
saith the LORD, and Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my servant, 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 an 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 shall be a desolation, and an
astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.

Jeremiah 25:12 And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are
accomplished, that I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation, saith
the LORD, for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans, and will make it
perpetual desolations.

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
hath prophesied against all the nations.

Jeremiah 25:14 For many nations and great kings shall 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 saith the LORD God of Israel unto me; Take the wine
cup of this fury at my hand, and cause all the nations, to whom I send thee,
to drink it.

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

Jeremiah 25:17 Then took I the cup at the LORD'S hand, and made all the
nations to drink, unto whom the LORD had sent me:

Jeremiah 25:18 To wit, Jerusalem, and the cities of Judah, and the kings
thereof, and the princes thereof, to make them a desolation, an astonishment,
an 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 Tyrus, and all the kings of Zidon, and
the kings of the isles which are beyond the sea,

Jeremiah 25:23 Dedan, and Tema, and Buz, and all that are in the utmost
corners,

Jeremiah 25:24 And all the kings of Arabia, and all the kings of the mingled
people that 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 shall drink after them.

Jeremiah 25:27 Therefore thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of
hosts, the God of Israel; Drink ye, and be drunken, and spue, and fall, and
rise no more, because of the sword which I will send among you.

Jeremiah 25:28 And it shall be, if they refuse to take the cup at thine hand
to drink, then shalt thou say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Ye
shall certainly drink.

Jeremiah 25:29 For, lo, I begin to bring evil on the city which is called by
my name, and should ye be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished: for
I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the LORD
of hosts.

Jeremiah 25:30 Therefore prophesy thou against them all these words, and say
unto them, The LORD shall roar from on high, and utter his voice from his holy
habitation; he shall mightily roar upon his habitation; he shall give a shout,
as they that tread the grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth.

Jeremiah 25:31 A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth; for the
LORD hath a controversy with the nations, he will plead with all flesh; he
will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 25:32 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth
from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the
coasts of the earth.

Jeremiah 25:33 And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end
of the earth even unto the other end of the earth: they shall not be lamented,
neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground.

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

Jeremiah 25:35 And the shepherds shall 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 an howling of the
principal of the flock, shall be heard: for the LORD hath 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 hath 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 came this word from the LORD, saying,

Jeremiah 26:2 Thus saith the LORD; Stand in the court of the LORD'S house,
and speak unto all the cities of Judah, which come to worship in the LORD'S
house, all the words that I command thee to speak unto them; diminish not a
word:

Jeremiah 26:3 If so be they will hearken, and turn every man from his evil
way, that I may repent me of the evil, which I purpose to do unto them because
of the evil of their doings.

Jeremiah 26:4 And thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD; If ye will
not hearken to me, to walk in my law, which I have set before you,

Jeremiah 26:5 To hearken to the words of my servants the prophets, whom I
sent unto you, both rising up early, and sending them, but ye have not
hearkened;

Jeremiah 26:6 Then will I 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 unto all the people, that the
priests and the prophets and all the people took him, saying, Thou shalt
surely die.

Jeremiah 26:9 Why hast thou prophesied in the name of the LORD, saying, This
house shall be like Shiloh, and this city shall 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 unto the house of the LORD, and sat down in the entry
of the new gate of the LORD'S house.

Jeremiah 26:11 Then spake the priests and the prophets unto the princes and
to all the people, saying, This man is worthy to die; for he hath prophesied
against this city, as ye have heard with your ears.

Jeremiah 26:12 Then spake Jeremiah unto 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 ye 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 him of the evil that he
hath pronounced against you.

Jeremiah 26:14 As for me, behold, I am in your hand: do with me as seemeth
good and meet unto you.

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

Jeremiah 26:16 Then said the princes and all the people unto the priests and
to the prophets; This man is not worthy to die: for he hath spoken to us in
the name of the LORD our God.

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

Jeremiah 26:18 Micah the Morasthite prophesied in the days of Hezekiah king
of Judah, and spake to all the people of Judah, saying, Thus saith the LORD of
hosts; Zion shall be plowed like a field, and Jerusalem shall 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 at all to
death? did he not fear the LORD, and besought the LORD, and the LORD repented
him of the evil which he had pronounced against them? Thus might we procure
great evil against our souls.

Jeremiah 26:20 And there was also a man that 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
unto 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 came this word unto Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,

Jeremiah 27:2 Thus saith the LORD to me; Make thee bonds and yokes, and put
them upon thy 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 Tyrus, and to the king of
Zidon, by the hand of the messengers which come to Jerusalem unto Zedekiah
king of Judah;

Jeremiah 27:4 And command them to say unto their masters, Thus saith the
LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Thus shall ye say unto 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 unto
whom it seemed meet unto me.

Jeremiah 27:6 And now have I given all these lands into the hand of
Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, my servant; and the beasts of the field
have I given him also to serve him.

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

Jeremiah 27:8 And it shall 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, saith the LORD, with the sword, and with the famine, and with the
pestilence, until I have consumed them by his hand.

Jeremiah 27:9 Therefore hearken not ye to your prophets, nor to your
diviners, nor to your dreamers, nor to your enchanters, nor to your sorcerers,
which speak unto you, saying, Ye shall not serve the king of Babylon:

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

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

Jeremiah 27:12 I spake also 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 ye die, thou and thy people, by the sword, by the
famine, and by the pestilence, as the LORD hath spoken against the nation that
will not serve the king of Babylon?

Jeremiah 27:14 Therefore hearken not unto the words of the prophets that
speak unto you, saying, Ye shall not serve the king of Babylon: for they
prophesy a lie unto you.

Jeremiah 27:15 For I have not sent them, saith the LORD, yet they prophesy a
lie in my name; that I might drive you out, and that ye might perish, ye, and
the prophets that prophesy unto you.

Jeremiah 27:16 Also I spake to the priests and to all this people, saying,
Thus saith the LORD; Hearken not to the words of your prophets that prophesy
unto you, saying, Behold, the vessels of the LORD'S house shall now shortly be
brought again from Babylon: for they prophesy a lie unto you.

Jeremiah 27:17 Hearken not unto them; serve the king of Babylon, and live:
wherefore should this city be laid waste?

Jeremiah 27:18 But if they be prophets, and if the word of the LORD be 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, go not to Babylon.

Jeremiah 27:19 For thus saith the LORD of hosts 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 took not, when he
carried away captive Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah from
Jerusalem to Babylon, and all the nobles of Judah and Jerusalem;

Jeremiah 27:21 Yea, thus saith the LORD of hosts, 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 shall be carried to Babylon, and there shall they be
until the day that I visit them, saith the LORD; then will I 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, which was of Gibeon, spake unto me
in the house of the LORD, in the presence of the priests and of all the
people, saying,

Jeremiah 28:2 Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, saying, I
have broken the yoke of the king of Babylon.

Jeremiah 28:3 Within two full years will I bring again into this place all
the vessels of the LORD'S house, that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon took away
from this place, and carried them to Babylon:

Jeremiah 28:4 And I will bring again to this place Jeconiah the son of
Jehoiakim king of Judah, with all the captives of Judah, that went into
Babylon, saith the LORD: for I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon.

Jeremiah 28:5 Then the prophet Jeremiah said unto the prophet Hananiah in
the presence of the priests, and in the presence of all the people that stood
in the house of the LORD,

Jeremiah 28:6 Even the prophet Jeremiah said, Amen: the LORD do so: the LORD
perform thy words which thou hast prophesied, to bring again the vessels of
the LORD'S house, and all that is carried away captive, from Babylon into this
place.

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

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

Jeremiah 28:9 The prophet which prophesieth of peace, when the word of the
prophet shall come to pass, then shall the prophet be known, that the LORD
hath truly sent him.

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

Jeremiah 28:11 And Hananiah spake in the presence of all the people, saying,
Thus saith the LORD; 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 unto Jeremiah the prophet,
after that 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 saith the LORD; Thou hast
broken the yokes of wood; but thou shalt make for them yokes of iron.

Jeremiah 28:14 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, 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 shall serve him: and I have given him
the beasts of the field also.

Jeremiah 28:15 Then said the prophet Jeremiah unto Hananiah the prophet,
Hear now, Hananiah; The LORD hath not sent thee; but thou makest this people
to trust in a lie.

Jeremiah 28:16 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will cast thee from
off the face of the earth: this year thou shalt die, because thou hast taught
rebellion against the LORD.

Jeremiah 28:17 So Hananiah the prophet died 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 unto the residue of the elders which 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 that Jeconiah the king, and the queen, and the eunuchs,
the princes of Judah and Jerusalem, and the carpenters, and the smiths, were
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 unto Babylon to Nebuchadnezzar
king of Babylon) saying,

Jeremiah 29:4 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, unto all that
are carried away captives, whom I have caused to be carried away from
Jerusalem unto Babylon;

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

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

Jeremiah 29:7 And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be
carried away captives, and pray unto the LORD for it: for in the peace thereof
shall ye have peace.

Jeremiah 29:8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Let not
your prophets and your diviners, that be in the midst of you, deceive you,
neither hearken to your dreams which ye cause to be dreamed.

Jeremiah 29:9 For they prophesy falsely unto you in my name: I have not sent
them, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 29:10 For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be
accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you,
in causing you to return to this place.

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

Jeremiah 29:12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me,
and I will hearken unto you.

Jeremiah 29:13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for
me with all your heart.

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

Jeremiah 29:15 Because ye have said, The LORD hath raised us up prophets in
Babylon;

Jeremiah 29:16 Know that thus saith the LORD of the king that sitteth upon
the throne of David, and of all the people that dwelleth in this city, and of
your brethren that are not gone forth with you into captivity;

Jeremiah 29:17 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will send upon them
the sword, 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 an hissing, and
a reproach, among all the nations whither I have driven them:

Jeremiah 29:19 Because they have not hearkened to my words, saith the LORD,
which I sent unto them by my servants the prophets, rising up early and
sending them; but ye would not hear, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 29:20 Hear ye therefore the word of the LORD, all ye of the
captivity, whom I have sent from Jerusalem to Babylon:

Jeremiah 29:21 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, of Ahab the
son of Kolaiah, and of Zedekiah the son of Maaseiah, which prophesy a lie unto
you in my name; Behold, I will deliver them into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar
king of Babylon; and he shall slay them before your eyes;

Jeremiah 29:22 And of them shall be taken up a curse by all the captivity of
Judah which are in Babylon, saying, The LORD make thee like Zedekiah and like
Ahab, whom the king of Babylon roasted in the fire;

Jeremiah 29:23 Because they have committed villany in Israel, and have
committed adultery with their neighbours' wives, and have spoken lying words
in my name, which I have not commanded them; even I know, and am a witness,
saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 29:24 Thus shalt thou also speak to Shemaiah the Nehelamite,
saying,

Jeremiah 29:25 Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, saying,
Because thou hast sent letters in thy name unto all the people that are at
Jerusalem, and to Zephaniah the son of Maaseiah the priest, and to all the
priests, saying,

Jeremiah 29:26 The LORD hath made thee priest in the stead of Jehoiada the
priest, that ye should be officers in the house of the LORD, for every man
that is mad, and maketh himself a prophet, that thou shouldest put him in
prison, and in the stocks.

Jeremiah 29:27 Now therefore why hast thou not reproved Jeremiah of
Anathoth, which maketh himself a prophet to you?

Jeremiah 29:28 For therefore he sent unto us in Babylon, saying, This
captivity is long: build ye 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 came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah, saying,

Jeremiah 29:31 Send to all them of the captivity, saying, Thus saith the
LORD concerning Shemaiah the Nehelamite; Because that Shemaiah hath prophesied
unto you, and I sent him not, and he caused you to trust in a lie:

Jeremiah 29:32 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will punish Shemaiah
the Nehelamite, and his seed: he shall not have a man to dwell among this
people; neither shall he behold the good that I will do for my people, saith
the LORD; because he hath taught rebellion against the LORD.

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

Jeremiah 30:2 Thus speaketh the LORD God of Israel, saying, Write thee all
the words that I have spoken unto thee in a book.

Jeremiah 30:3 For, lo, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will bring
again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the LORD: and I will
cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall
possess it.

Jeremiah 30:4 And these are the words that the LORD spake concerning Israel
and concerning Judah.

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

Jeremiah 30:6 Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child?
wherefore 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 is like it: it is
even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.

Jeremiah 30:8 For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of
hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds,
and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him:

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

Jeremiah 30:10 Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the LORD;
neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy
seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in
rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid.

Jeremiah 30:11 For I am with thee, saith the LORD, to save thee: though I
make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not
make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not
leave thee altogether unpunished.

Jeremiah 30:12 For thus saith the LORD, Thy bruise is incurable, and thy
wound is grievous.

Jeremiah 30:13 There is none to plead thy cause, that thou mayest be bound
up: thou hast no healing medicines.

Jeremiah 30:14 All thy lovers have forgotten thee; they seek thee not; for I
have wounded thee with the wound of an enemy, with the chastisement of a cruel
one, for the multitude of thine iniquity; because thy sins were increased.

Jeremiah 30:15 Why criest thou for thine affliction? thy sorrow is incurable
for the multitude of thine iniquity: because thy sins were increased, I have
done these things unto thee.

Jeremiah 30:16 Therefore all they that devour thee shall be devoured; and
all thine adversaries, every one of them, shall go into captivity; and they
that spoil thee shall be a spoil, and all that prey upon thee will I give for
a prey.

Jeremiah 30:17 For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of
thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This
is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.

Jeremiah 30:18 Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will bring again the captivity
of Jacob's tents, and have mercy on his dwellingplaces; and the city shall be
builded upon her own heap, and the palace shall remain after the manner
thereof.

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

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

Jeremiah 30:21 And their nobles shall be of themselves, and their governor
shall proceed from the midst of them; and I will cause him to draw near, and
he shall approach unto me: for who is this that engaged his heart to approach
unto me? saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 30:22 And ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.

Jeremiah 30:23 Behold, the whirlwind of the LORD goeth forth with fury, a
continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked.

Jeremiah 30:24 The fierce anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have
done it, and until he have performed the intents of his heart: in the latter
days ye shall consider it.

Jeremiah 31:1 At the same time, saith the LORD, will I be the God of all the
families of Israel, and they shall be my people.

Jeremiah 31:2 Thus saith the LORD, The people which 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 hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have
loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I
drawn thee.

Jeremiah 31:4 Again I will build thee, and thou shalt be built, O virgin of
Israel: thou shalt again be adorned with thy tabrets, and shalt go forth in
the dances of them that make merry.

Jeremiah 31:5 Thou shalt yet plant vines upon the mountains of Samaria: the
planters shall plant, and shall eat them as common things.

Jeremiah 31:6 For there shall be a day, that the watchmen upon the mount
Ephraim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the LORD our God.

Jeremiah 31:7 For thus saith the LORD; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and
shout among the chief of the nations: publish ye, praise ye, and say, O LORD,
save thy 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 with them the blind and the lame, the
woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company
shall return thither.

Jeremiah 31:9 They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I
lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight
way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim
is my firstborn.

Jeremiah 31:10 Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare it in
the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and
keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock.

Jeremiah 31:11 For the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the
hand of him that was stronger than he.

Jeremiah 31:12 Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, and
shall 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 shall
be as a watered garden; and they shall not sorrow any more at all.

Jeremiah 31:13 Then shall the virgin 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 shall be satisfied with my goodness, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 31:15 Thus saith the LORD; 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.

Jeremiah 31:16 Thus saith the LORD; Refrain thy voice from weeping, and
thine eyes from tears: for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the LORD; and
they shall come again from the land of the enemy.

Jeremiah 31:17 And there is hope in thine end, saith the LORD, that thy
children shall come again to their own border.

Jeremiah 31:18 I have surely heard Ephraim bemoaning himself thus; Thou hast
chastised me, and I was chastised, as a bullock unaccustomed to the yoke: turn
thou me, and I shall be turned; for thou art the LORD my God.

Jeremiah 31:19 Surely after that I was turned, I repented; and after that I
was instructed, I smote upon my thigh: I was ashamed, yea, even confounded,
because I did bear the reproach of my youth.

Jeremiah 31:20 Is Ephraim my dear son? is he a pleasant child? for since I
spake against him, I do earnestly remember him still: therefore my bowels are
troubled for him; I will surely have mercy upon him, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 31:21 Set thee up waymarks, make thee high heaps: set thine heart
toward the highway, even the way which thou wentest: turn again, O virgin of
Israel, turn again to these thy cities.

Jeremiah 31:22 How long wilt thou go about, O thou backsliding daughter? for
the LORD hath created a new thing in the earth, A woman shall compass a man.

Jeremiah 31:23 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; As yet they
shall use this speech in the land of Judah and in the cities thereof, when I
shall bring again their captivity; The LORD bless thee, O habitation of
justice, and mountain of holiness.

Jeremiah 31:24 And there shall dwell in Judah itself, and in all the cities
thereof together, husbandmen, and they that go forth with flocks.

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

Jeremiah 31:26 Upon this I awaked, and beheld; and my sleep was sweet unto
me.

Jeremiah 31:27 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, 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 shall come to pass, that like as I have watched over
them, to pluck up, and to break down, and to throw down, and to destroy, and
to afflict; so will I watch over them, to build, and to plant, saith the LORD.

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

Jeremiah 31:30 But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that
eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge.

Jeremiah 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, 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 my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them,
saith the LORD:

Jeremiah 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the
house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their
inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they
shall be my people.

Jeremiah 31:34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and
every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from
the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will
forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

Jeremiah 31:35 Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day,
and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which
divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name:

Jeremiah 31:36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD,
then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for
ever.

Jeremiah 31:37 Thus saith the LORD; 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, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 31:38 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the city shall be
built to the LORD from the tower of Hananeel unto the gate of the corner.

Jeremiah 31:39 And the measuring line shall yet go forth over against it
upon the hill Gareb, and shall compass about to Goath.

Jeremiah 31:40 And the whole valley of the dead bodies, and of the ashes,
and all the fields unto the brook of Kidron, unto the corner of the horse gate
toward the east, shall be holy unto the LORD; it shall not be plucked up, nor
thrown down any more for ever.

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, Wherefore
dost thou prophesy, and say, Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will give this
city into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall take it;

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

Jeremiah 32:5 And he shall lead Zedekiah to Babylon, and there shall he be
until I visit him, saith the LORD: though ye fight with the Chaldeans, ye
shall not prosper.

Jeremiah 32:6 And Jeremiah said, The word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Jeremiah 32:7 Behold, Hanameel the son of Shallum thine uncle shall come
unto thee, saying, Buy thee my field that is in Anathoth: for the right of
redemption is thine to buy it.

Jeremiah 32:8 So Hanameel mine uncle's son came to me in the court of the
prison according to the word of the LORD, and said unto me, Buy my field, I
pray thee, that is in Anathoth, which is in the country of Benjamin: for the
right of inheritance is thine, and the redemption is thine; buy it for
thyself. 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 unto Baruch the son
of Neriah, the son of Maaseiah, in the sight of Hanameel mine uncle's son, and
in the presence of the witnesses that subscribed the book of the purchase,
before all the Jews that sat in the court of the prison.

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

Jeremiah 32:14 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, 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 thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Houses
and fields and vineyards shall be possessed again in this land.

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

Jeremiah 32:17 Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth
by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for
thee:

Jeremiah 32:18 Thou showest lovingkindness unto thousands, and recompensest
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 thine eyes are open
upon all the ways of the sons of men: to give every one according to his ways,
and according to the fruit of his doings:

Jeremiah 32:20 Which hast set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, even
unto this day, and in Israel, and among other men; and hast made thee a name,
as at this day;

Jeremiah 32:21 And hast brought forth thy 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 hast given them this land, which thou didst swear 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 obeyed not thy
voice, neither walked in thy law; they have done nothing of all that thou
commandedst them to do: therefore thou hast caused all this evil to come upon
them:

Jeremiah 32:24 Behold the mounts, they are come unto the city to take it;
and the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans, that fight against it,
because of the sword, and of the famine, and of the pestilence: and what thou
hast spoken is come to pass; and, behold, thou seest it.

Jeremiah 32:25 And thou hast said unto me, O Lord GOD, Buy thee the field
for money, and take witnesses; for the city is given into the hand of the
Chaldeans.

Jeremiah 32:26 Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah, saying,

Jeremiah 32:27 Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any
thing too hard for me?

Jeremiah 32:28 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will give this city
into the hand of the Chaldeans, and into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of
Babylon, and he shall take it:

Jeremiah 32:29 And the Chaldeans, that fight against this city, shall come
and set fire on this city, and burn it with the houses, upon whose roofs they
have offered incense unto Baal, and poured out drink offerings unto 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, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 32:31 For this city hath been to me as a provocation of mine anger
and of my fury from the day that they built it even unto 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 unto me the back, and not the face:
though I taught them, rising up early and teaching them, yet they have not
hearkened 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 unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into
my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.

Jeremiah 32:36 And now therefore thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel,
concerning this city, whereof ye say, It shall 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, whither I
have driven them in mine anger, and in my fury, and in great wrath; and I will
bring them again unto this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely:

Jeremiah 32:38 And they shall 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 for ever, 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 shall not depart from me.

Jeremiah 32:41 Yea, 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 saith the LORD; Like 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 shall be bought in this land, whereof ye say, It is
desolate without man or beast; it is given into the hand of the Chaldeans.

Jeremiah 32:44 Men shall 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, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 33:1 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah the second
time, while he was yet shut up in the court of the prison, saying,

Jeremiah 33:2 Thus saith the LORD the maker thereof, the LORD that formed
it, to establish it; the LORD is his name;

Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and
mighty things, which thou knowest not.

Jeremiah 33:4 For thus saith the LORD, 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 mine anger and in my fury,
and for all whose wickedness I have hid my face from this city.

Jeremiah 33:6 Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them,
and will reveal unto 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 shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and an honour
before all the nations of the earth, which shall hear all the good that I do
unto them: and they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and for all
the prosperity that I procure unto it.

Jeremiah 33:10 Thus saith the LORD; Again there shall be heard in this
place, which ye say shall 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 them that shall say,
Praise the LORD of hosts: for the LORD is good; for his mercy endureth for
ever: and of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of
the LORD. For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at the
first, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 33:12 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Again in this place, which is
desolate without man and without beast, and in all the cities thereof, shall
be an 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, shall the flocks pass again under
the hands of him that telleth them, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 33:14 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will perform
that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and to the
house of Judah.

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

Jeremiah 33:16 In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell
safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our
righteousness.

Jeremiah 33:17 For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want a man to sit
upon the throne of the house of Israel;

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

Jeremiah 33:19 And the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah, saying,

Jeremiah 33:20 Thus saith the LORD; If ye 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 may also my covenant 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 that minister unto me.

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

Jeremiah 33:24 Considerest thou not what this people have spoken, saying,
The two families which the LORD hath chosen, he hath even cast them off? thus
they have despised my people, that they should be no more a nation before
them.

Jeremiah 33:25 Thus saith the LORD; If my covenant be not with day and
night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth;

Jeremiah 33:26 Then will I 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 unto 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 saith the LORD, the God of Israel; Go and speak to
Zedekiah king of Judah, and tell him, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will give
this city into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall burn it with
fire:

Jeremiah 34:3 And thou shalt not escape out of his hand, but shalt surely be
taken, and delivered into his hand; and thine eyes shall behold the eyes of
the king of Babylon, and he shall speak with thee mouth to mouth, and thou
shalt go to Babylon.

Jeremiah 34:4 Yet hear the word of the LORD, O Zedekiah king of Judah; Thus
saith the LORD of thee, Thou shalt not die by the sword:

Jeremiah 34:5 But thou shalt die in peace: and with the burnings of thy
fathers, the former kings which were before thee, so shall they burn odours
for thee; and they will lament thee, saying, Ah lord! for I have pronounced
the word, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 34:6 Then Jeremiah the prophet spake all these words unto 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 defenced cities remained of the cities of Judah.

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

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

Jeremiah 34:10 Now when all the princes, and all the people, which had
entered into the covenant, heard that every one should let his manservant, and
every one his maidservant, go free, that none should serve themselves of them
any more, 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 saith the LORD, 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 ye go every man his brother an
Hebrew, which hath been sold unto thee; and when he hath served thee six
years, thou shalt let him go free from thee: but your fathers hearkened not
unto me, neither inclined their ear.

Jeremiah 34:15 And ye were now turned, and had done right in my sight, in
proclaiming liberty every man to his neighbour; and ye had made a covenant
before me in the house which is called by my name:

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

Jeremiah 34:17 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Ye have not hearkened unto me,
in proclaiming liberty, every one to his brother, and every man to his
neighbour: behold, I proclaim a liberty for you, saith the LORD, 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 that have transgressed my covenant,
which have not performed the words of the covenant which they had made before
me, when they cut the calf in twain, 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, which 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 them that seek their life: and their dead bodies shall be for
meat unto the fowls of the heaven, and to the beasts of the earth.

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

Jeremiah 34:22 Behold, I will command, saith the LORD, and cause them to
return to this city; and they shall 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 unto Jeremiah from the LORD in the days of
Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, saying,

Jeremiah 35:2 Go unto the house of the Rechabites, and speak unto 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, which was by
the chamber of the princes, which 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 unto them, Drink ye wine.

Jeremiah 35:6 But they said, We will drink no wine: for Jonadab the son of
Rechab our father commanded us, saying, Ye shall drink no wine, neither ye,
nor your sons for ever:

Jeremiah 35:7 Neither shall ye build house, nor sow seed, nor plant
vineyard, nor have any: but all your days ye shall dwell in tents; that ye may
live many days in the land where ye be strangers.

Jeremiah 35:8 Thus have we obeyed the voice of Jonadab the son of Rechab our
father in all that he hath 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 have we
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 came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah, saying,

Jeremiah 35:13 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Go and tell
the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, Will ye not receive
instruction to hearken to my words? saith the LORD.

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

Jeremiah 35:15 I have sent also unto you all my servants the prophets,
rising up early and sending them, saying, Return ye now every man from his
evil way, and amend your doings, and go not after other gods to serve them,
and ye shall dwell in the land which I have given to you and to your fathers:
but ye have not inclined your ear, nor hearkened unto 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 hath
not hearkened unto me:

Jeremiah 35:17 Therefore thus saith the LORD 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 unto them, but they have not heard; and I have called unto them, but
they have not answered.

Jeremiah 35:18 And Jeremiah said unto the house of the Rechabites, Thus
saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Because ye have obeyed the
commandment of Jonadab your father, and kept all his precepts, and done
according unto all that he hath commanded you:

Jeremiah 35:19 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel;
Jonadab the son of Rechab shall not want a man to stand before me for ever.

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 unto Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,

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

Jeremiah 36:3 It may be that the house of Judah will hear all the evil which
I purpose to do unto 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 from the mouth of Jeremiah all the words of the LORD, which he had
spoken unto 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 thou, and read in the roll, which thou hast
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 also thou shalt read them in the ears
of all Judah that come out of their cities.

Jeremiah 36:7 It may be they will present their supplication before the
LORD, and will return every one from his evil way: for great is the anger and
the fury that the LORD hath pronounced against this people.

Jeremiah 36:8 And Baruch the son of Neriah did according to all that
Jeremiah the prophet commanded him, reading in the book the words of the LORD
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 that came from
the cities of Judah unto Jerusalem.

Jeremiah 36:10 Then read Baruch in the book the words of Jeremiah 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 out of the book all the words of the LORD,

Jeremiah 36:12 Then he went down into the king's house, into the scribe's
chamber: and, lo, 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 unto 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, unto Baruch, saying, Take in thine
hand the roll wherein thou hast read in the ears of the people, and come. So
Baruch the son of Neriah took the roll in his hand, and came unto them.

Jeremiah 36:15 And they said unto 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 unto Baruch, We will surely tell the
king of all these words.

Jeremiah 36:17 And they asked Baruch, saying, Tell us now, How didst thou
write all these words at his mouth?

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

Jeremiah 36:19 Then said the princes unto Baruch, Go, hide thee, thou and
Jeremiah; and let no man know where ye be.

Jeremiah 36:20 And they went in to the king into the court, but they laid up
the roll 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 which 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 that 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 that the
king had burned the roll, and the words which Baruch wrote at the mouth of
Jeremiah, saying,

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

Jeremiah 36:29 And thou shalt say to Jehoiakim king of Judah, Thus saith the
LORD; Thou hast burned this roll, saying, Why hast thou written therein,
saying, The king of Babylon shall certainly come and destroy this land, and
shall cause to cease from thence man and beast?

Jeremiah 36:30 Therefore thus saith the LORD of Jehoiakim king of Judah; He
shall have none to sit upon the throne of David: and his dead body shall 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 hearkened not.

Jeremiah 36:32 Then took Jeremiah 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 there were added besides unto them many like words.

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,
did hearken unto the words of the LORD, which he spake 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 unto 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 come forth out of Egypt: and when the
Chaldeans that besieged Jerusalem heard tidings of them, they departed from
Jerusalem.

Jeremiah 37:6 Then came the word of the LORD unto the prophet Jeremiah,
saying,

Jeremiah 37:7 Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; Thus shall ye say to
the king of Judah, that sent you unto me to inquire of me; Behold, Pharaoh's
army, which is come forth to help you, shall return to Egypt into their own
land.

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

Jeremiah 37:9 Thus saith the LORD; Deceive not yourselves, saying, The
Chaldeans shall surely depart from us: for they shall not depart.

Jeremiah 37:10 For though ye had smitten the whole army of the Chaldeans
that fight against you, and there remained but wounded men among them, yet
should they 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 thence 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, Thou fallest away to the
Chaldeans.

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

Jeremiah 37:15 Wherefore the princes were wroth with Jeremiah, and smote
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 was entered into the dungeon, and into the
cabins, and Jeremiah had remained there 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, said he, thou shalt be delivered into the
hand of the king of Babylon.

Jeremiah 37:18 Moreover Jeremiah said unto king Zedekiah, What have I
offended against thee, or against thy servants, or against this people, that
ye have put me in prison?

Jeremiah 37:19 Where are now your prophets which prophesied unto you,
saying, The king of Babylon shall not come against you, nor against this land?

Jeremiah 37:20 Therefore hear now, I pray thee, O my lord the king: let my
supplication, I pray thee, be accepted before thee; that thou cause me not to
return to the house of Jonathan the scribe, lest 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 daily a
piece of bread out of the bakers' street, until all the bread in the city were
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 unto all the people, saying,

Jeremiah 38:2 Thus saith the LORD, He that remaineth in this city shall die
by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence: but he that goeth forth to
the Chaldeans shall live; for he shall have his life for a prey, and shall
live.

Jeremiah 38:3 Thus saith the LORD, This city shall surely be given into the
hand of the king of Babylon's army, which shall take it.

Jeremiah 38:4 Therefore the princes said unto the king, We beseech thee, let
this man be put to death: for thus he weakeneth the hands of the men of war
that remain in this city, and the hands of all the people, in speaking such
words unto them: for this man seeketh not 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 that can do any thing against you.

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

Jeremiah 38:7 Now when Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, one of the eunuchs which
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 spake 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 like 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 from hence thirty men with thee, and take up Jeremiah the prophet out of
the dungeon, before he die.

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

Jeremiah 38:12 And Ebedmelech the Ethiopian said unto Jeremiah, Put now these
old cast clouts and rotten rags under thine 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
unto him into the third entry that is in the house of the LORD: and the king
said unto Jeremiah, I will ask thee a thing; hide nothing from me.

Jeremiah 38:15 Then Jeremiah said unto Zedekiah, If I declare it unto thee,
wilt thou not surely put me to death? and if I give thee counsel, wilt thou
not hearken unto me?

Jeremiah 38:16 So Zedekiah the king sware secretly unto Jeremiah, saying, As
the LORD liveth, that made us this soul, I will not put thee to death, neither
will I give thee into the hand of these men that seek thy life.

Jeremiah 38:17 Then said Jeremiah unto Zedekiah, Thus saith the LORD, the
God of hosts, the God of Israel; If thou wilt assuredly go forth unto the king
of Babylon's princes, then thy soul shall live, and this city shall not be
burned with fire; and thou shalt live, and thine house:

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

Jeremiah 38:19 And Zedekiah the king said unto Jeremiah, I am afraid of the
Jews that are fallen to the Chaldeans, lest they deliver me into their hand,
and they mock me.

Jeremiah 38:20 But Jeremiah said, They shall not deliver thee. Obey, I
beseech thee, the voice of the LORD, which I speak unto thee: so it shall be
well unto thee, and thy soul shall live.

Jeremiah 38:21 But if thou refuse to go forth, this is the word that the
LORD hath showed me:

Jeremiah 38:22 And, behold, all the women that are left in the king of
Judah's house shall be brought forth to the king of Babylon's princes, and
those women shall say, Thy friends have set thee on, and have prevailed
against thee: thy feet are sunk in the mire, and they are turned away back.

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

Jeremiah 38:24 Then said Zedekiah unto Jeremiah, Let no man know of these
words, and thou shalt not die.

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

Jeremiah 38:26 Then thou shalt say unto 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 came all the princes unto 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, came Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon and all his army against Jerusalem,
and they besieged it.

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 betwixt 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: also the king of Babylon 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 brake down the walls of Jerusalem.

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

Jeremiah 39:10 But Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard left of the poor of
the people, which 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
unto him even as he shall say unto thee.

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 unto 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 unto 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 saith
the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring my words upon this
city for evil, and not for good; and they shall be accomplished in that day
before thee.

Jeremiah 39:17 But I will deliver thee in that day, saith the LORD: and thou
shalt not be given into the hand of the men of whom thou art afraid.

Jeremiah 39:18 For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by
the sword, but thy life shall be for a prey unto thee: because thou hast put
thy trust in me, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 40:1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, after that
Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard had let him go from Ramah, when he had
taken him being bound in chains among all that were carried away captive of
Jerusalem and Judah, which were carried away captive unto Babylon.

Jeremiah 40:2 And the captain of the guard took Jeremiah, and said unto him,
The LORD thy God hath pronounced this evil upon this place.

Jeremiah 40:3 Now the LORD hath brought it, and done according as he hath
said: because ye have sinned against the LORD, and have not obeyed his voice,
therefore this thing is come upon you.

Jeremiah 40:4 And now, behold, I loose thee this day from the chains which
were upon thine hand. If it seem good unto thee to come with me into Babylon,
come; and I will look well unto thee: but if it seem ill unto thee to come
with me into Babylon, forbear: behold, all the land is before thee: whither it
seemeth good and convenient for thee to go, thither go.

Jeremiah 40:5 Now while he was not yet gone back, he said, Go back also to
Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son of Shaphan, whom the king of Babylon hath
made governor over the cities of Judah, and dwell with him among the people:
or go wheresoever it seemeth convenient unto thee to go. So the captain of the
guard gave him victuals and a reward, and let him go.

Jeremiah 40:6 Then went Jeremiah unto Gedaliah the son of Ahikam to Mizpah;
and dwelt with him among the people that were left in the land.

Jeremiah 40:7 Now when all the captains of the forces which 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 unto him
men, and women, and children, and of the poor of the land, of them that 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 sware unto
them and to their men, saying, Fear not to serve the Chaldeans: dwell in the
land, and serve the king of Babylon, and it shall be well with you.

Jeremiah 40:10 As for me, behold, I will dwell at Mizpah, to serve the
Chaldeans, which will come unto us: but ye, gather ye wine, and summer fruits,
and oil, and put them in your vessels, and dwell in your cities that ye have
taken.

Jeremiah 40:11 Likewise when all the Jews that were in Moab, and among the
Ammonites, and in Edom, and that were in all the countries, heard that the
king of Babylon had left a remnant of Judah, and that he had set over them
Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son of Shaphan;

Jeremiah 40:12 Even all the Jews returned out of all places whither they
were driven, and came to the land of Judah, to Gedaliah, unto Mizpah, and
gathered wine and summer fruits very much.

Jeremiah 40:13 Moreover Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of
the forces that were in the fields, came to Gedaliah to Mizpah,

Jeremiah 40:14 And said unto him, Dost thou certainly know that Baalis the
king of the Ammonites hath sent Ishmael the son of Nethaniah to slay thee? But
Gedaliah the son of Ahikam believed them not.

Jeremiah 40:15 Then Johanan the son of Kareah spake to Gedaliah in Mizpah
secretly, saying, Let me go, I pray thee, and I will slay Ishmael the son of
Nethaniah, and no man shall know it: wherefore should he slay thee, that all
the Jews which are gathered unto thee should be scattered, and the remnant in
Judah perish?

Jeremiah 40:16 But Gedaliah the son of Ahikam said unto Johanan the son of
Kareah, Thou shalt not do this thing: for thou speakest 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 unto Gedaliah the son of Ahikam to Mizpah;
and there they did eat bread together in Mizpah.

Jeremiah 41:2 Then arose Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, and the ten men that
were with him, and smote 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 that were with him, even with
Gedaliah, at Mizpah, and the Chaldeans that 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 there came certain from Shechem, from Shiloh, and from
Samaria, even fourscore 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 unto 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 that were with him.

Jeremiah 41:8 But ten men were found among them that said unto Ishmael, Slay
us not: for we have treasures in the field, of wheat, and of barley, and of
oil, and of honey. So he forbare, and slew them not 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, was it which Asa the king had
made for fear of Baasha king of Israel: and Ishmael the son of Nethaniah
filled it with them that were slain.

Jeremiah 41:10 Then Ishmael carried away captive all the residue of the
people that were in Mizpah, even the king's daughters, and all the people that
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 that 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 which were with
Ishmael saw Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces that
were with him, then they were glad.

Jeremiah 41:14 So all the people that Ishmael had carried away captive from
Mizpah cast about and returned, and went unto 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 took Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of
the forces that were with him, all the remnant of the people whom he had
recovered from Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, from Mizpah, after that 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 unto the greatest, came near,

Jeremiah 42:2 And said unto Jeremiah the prophet, Let, we beseech thee, our
supplication be accepted before thee, and pray for us unto the LORD thy God,
even for all this remnant; (for we are left but a few of many, as thine eyes
do behold us:)

Jeremiah 42:3 That the LORD thy 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 unto them, I have heard you;
behold, I will pray unto the LORD your God according to your words; and it
shall come to pass, that whatsoever thing the LORD shall answer you, I will
declare it unto you; I will keep nothing back from you.

Jeremiah 42:5 Then they said to Jeremiah, The LORD be a true and faithful
witness between us, if we do not even according to all things for the which
the LORD thy God shall send thee to us.

Jeremiah 42:6 Whether it be good, or whether it be evil, we will obey the
voice of the LORD our God, to whom we send thee; 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 unto Jeremiah.

Jeremiah 42:8 Then called he Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains
of the forces which were with him, and all the people from the least even to
the greatest,

Jeremiah 42:9 And said unto them, Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel,
unto whom ye sent me to present your supplication before him;

Jeremiah 42:10 If ye will still abide in this land, then will I build you,
and not pull you down, and I will plant you, and not pluck you up: for I
repent me of the evil that I have done unto you.

Jeremiah 42:11 Be not afraid of the king of Babylon, of whom ye are afraid;
be not afraid of him, saith the LORD: for I am with you to save you, and to
deliver you from his hand.

Jeremiah 42:12 And I will show mercies unto you, that he may have mercy upon
you, and cause you to return to your own land.

Jeremiah 42:13 But if ye 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
shall see no war, nor hear the sound of the trumpet, nor have hunger of bread;
and there will we dwell:

Jeremiah 42:15 And now therefore hear the word of the LORD, ye remnant of
Judah; Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; If ye wholly set your
faces to enter into Egypt, and go to sojourn there;

Jeremiah 42:16 Then it shall come to pass, that the sword, which ye feared,
shall overtake you there in the land of Egypt, and the famine, whereof ye were
afraid, shall follow close after you there in Egypt; and there ye shall die.

Jeremiah 42:17 So shall it be with all the men that set their faces to go
into Egypt to sojourn there; they shall die by the sword, by the famine, and
by the pestilence: and none of them shall remain or escape from the evil that
I will bring upon them.

Jeremiah 42:18 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; As mine
anger and my fury hath been poured forth upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem; so
shall my fury be poured forth upon you, when ye shall enter into Egypt: and ye
shall be an execration, and an astonishment, and a curse, and a reproach; and
ye shall see this place no more.

Jeremiah 42:19 The LORD hath said concerning you, O ye remnant of Judah; Go
ye not into Egypt: know certainly that I have admonished you this day.

Jeremiah 42:20 For ye dissembled in your hearts, when ye sent me unto the
LORD your God, saying, Pray for us unto the LORD our God; and according unto
all that the LORD our God shall say, so declare unto us, and we will do it.

Jeremiah 42:21 And now I have this day declared it to you; but ye have not
obeyed the voice of the LORD your God, nor any thing for the which he hath
sent me unto you.

Jeremiah 42:22 Now therefore know certainly that ye shall die by the sword,
by the famine, and by the pestilence, in the place whither ye desire to go and
to sojourn.

Jeremiah 43:1 And it came to pass, that when Jeremiah had made an end of
speaking unto 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 spake Azariah the son of Hoshaiah, and Johanan the son of
Kareah, and all the proud men, saying unto Jeremiah, Thou speakest falsely:
the LORD our God hath not sent thee to say, Go not into Egypt to sojourn
there:

Jeremiah 43:3 But Baruch the son of Neriah setteth thee on against us, for
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, obeyed not 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, that were returned from all nations,
whither 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 that 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 obeyed not the
voice of the LORD: thus came they even to Tahpanhes.

Jeremiah 43:8 Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah in Tahpanhes,
saying,

Jeremiah 43:9 Take great stones in thine 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 unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of
Israel; Behold, I will send and take Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my
servant, and will set his throne upon these stones that I have hid; and he
shall spread his royal pavilion over them.

Jeremiah 43:11 And when he cometh, he shall smite the land of Egypt, and
deliver such as are for death to death; and such as are for captivity to
captivity; and such as 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 shall burn them, and carry them away captives: and he shall array
himself with the land of Egypt, as a shepherd putteth on his garment; and he
shall go forth from thence in peace.

Jeremiah 43:13 He shall break also the images of Bethshemesh, that is in the
land of Egypt; and the houses of the gods of the Egyptians shall he burn with
fire.

Jeremiah 44:1 The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the Jews which
dwell in the land of Egypt, which dwell at Migdol, and at Tahpanhes, and at
Noph, and in the country of Pathros, saying,

Jeremiah 44:2 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Ye have seen
all the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, and upon all the cities of
Judah; and, behold, this day they are a desolation, and no man dwelleth
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 knew not, neither they, ye, nor your fathers.

Jeremiah 44:4 Howbeit I sent unto you all my servants the prophets, rising
early and sending them, saying, Oh, do not this abominable thing that I hate.

Jeremiah 44:5 But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear to turn from
their wickedness, to burn no incense unto other gods.

Jeremiah 44:6 Wherefore my fury and mine anger was poured forth, and was
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 now thus saith the LORD, the God of hosts, the God
of Israel; Wherefore commit ye this great evil against your souls, to cut off
from you man and woman, child and suckling, out of Judah, to leave you none to
remain;

Jeremiah 44:8 In that ye provoke me unto wrath with the works of your hands,
burning incense unto other gods in the land of Egypt, whither ye be gone to
dwell, that ye might cut yourselves off, and that ye might be a curse and a
reproach among all the nations of the earth?

Jeremiah 44:9 Have ye 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 unto 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 thus saith the LORD of hosts, 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, that have set their
faces to go into the land of Egypt to sojourn there, and they shall all be
consumed, and fall in the land of Egypt; they shall even be consumed by the
sword and by the famine: they shall die, from the least even unto the
greatest, by the sword and by the famine: and they shall be an execration, and
an astonishment, and a curse, and a reproach.

Jeremiah 44:13 For I will punish them that 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, which are gone into the
land of Egypt to sojourn there, shall escape or remain, that they should
return into the land of Judah, to the which they have a desire to return to
dwell there: for none shall return but such as shall escape.

Jeremiah 44:15 Then all the men which knew that their wives had burned
incense unto other gods, and all the women that stood by, a great multitude,
even all the people that dwelt in the land of Egypt, in Pathros, answered
Jeremiah, saying,

Jeremiah 44:16 As for the word that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of
the LORD, we will not hearken unto thee.

Jeremiah 44:17 But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of
our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink
offerings unto 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 then had
we plenty of victuals, 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 unto 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 unto her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour
out drink offerings unto her, without our men?

Jeremiah 44:20 Then Jeremiah said unto all the people, to the men, and to
the women, and to all the people which had given him that answer, saying,

Jeremiah 44:21 The incense that ye burned in the cities of Judah, and in the
streets of Jerusalem, ye, and your fathers, your kings, and your princes, and
the people of the land, did not the LORD remember them, and came it not 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 ye have committed;
therefore is your land a desolation, and an astonishment, and a curse, without
an inhabitant, as at this day.

Jeremiah 44:23 Because ye have burned incense, and because ye 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 is
happened unto you, as at this day.

Jeremiah 44:24 Moreover Jeremiah said unto all the people, and to all the
women, Hear the word of the LORD, all Judah that are in the land of Egypt:

Jeremiah 44:25 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, saying; Ye
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 unto her: ye
will surely accomplish your vows, and surely perform your vows.

Jeremiah 44:26 Therefore hear ye the word of the LORD, all Judah that dwell
in the land of Egypt; Behold, I have sworn by my great name, saith the LORD,
that my name shall no more be named in the mouth of any man of Judah in all
the land of Egypt, saying, The Lord GOD liveth.

Jeremiah 44:27 Behold, I will watch over them for evil, and not for good:
and all the men of Judah that are in the land of Egypt shall be consumed by
the sword and by the famine, until there be an end of them.

Jeremiah 44:28 Yet a small number that escape the sword shall return out of
the land of Egypt into the land of Judah, and all the remnant of Judah, that
are gone into the land of Egypt to sojourn there, shall know whose words shall
stand, mine, or theirs.

Jeremiah 44:29 And this shall be a sign unto you, saith the LORD, that I
will punish you in this place, that ye may know that my words shall surely
stand against you for evil:

Jeremiah 44:30 Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will give Pharaohhophra king
of Egypt into the hand of his enemies, and into the hand of them that seek his
life; as I gave Zedekiah king of Judah into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of
Babylon, his enemy, and that sought his life.

Jeremiah 45:1 The word that Jeremiah the prophet spake unto 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 saith the LORD, the God of Israel, unto thee, O Baruch;

Jeremiah 45:3 Thou didst say, Woe is me now! for the LORD hath added grief
to my sorrow; I fainted in my sighing, and I find no rest.

Jeremiah 45:4 Thus shalt thou say unto him, The LORD saith thus; Behold, that
which I have built will I break down, and that which I have planted I will
pluck up, even this whole land.

Jeremiah 45:5 And seekest thou great things for thyself? seek them not: for,
behold, I will bring evil upon all flesh, saith the LORD: but thy life will I
give unto thee for a prey in all places whither thou goest.

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 smote in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah.

Jeremiah 46:3 Order ye the buckler and shield, and draw near to battle.

Jeremiah 46:4 Harness the horses; and get up, ye horsemen, and stand forth
with your helmets; furbish the spears, and put on the brigandines.

Jeremiah 46:5 Wherefore have I seen them dismayed and turned away back? and
their mighty ones are beaten down, and are fled apace, and look not back: for
fear was round about, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 46:6 Let not the swift flee away, nor the mighty man escape; they
shall stumble, and fall toward the north by the river Euphrates.

Jeremiah 46:7 Who is this that cometh up as a flood, whose waters are moved
as the rivers?

Jeremiah 46:8 Egypt riseth up like a flood, and his waters are moved like
the rivers; and he saith, I will go up, and will cover the earth; I will
destroy the city and the inhabitants thereof.

Jeremiah 46:9 Come up, ye horses; and rage, ye chariots; and let the mighty
men come forth; the Ethiopians and the Libyans, that handle the shield; and
the Lydians, that 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 him of his adversaries: and the sword shall
devour, and it shall be satiate and made drunk with their blood: for the Lord

will fill thee with men, as with caterpillars; and they shall lift up a shout
against thee.

Jeremiah 51:15 He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the
world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heaven by his understanding.

Jeremiah 51:16 When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in
the heavens; and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth:
he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his
treasures.

Jeremiah 51:17 Every man is brutish by his knowledge; every founder is
confounded by the graven image: for his molten image is falsehood, and there is
no breath in them.

Jeremiah 51:18 They are vanity, the work of errors: in the time of their
visitation they shall perish.

Jeremiah 51:19 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 51:20 Thou art my battle ax and weapons of war: for with thee will
I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms;

Jeremiah 51:21 And with thee will I break in pieces the horse and his rider;
and with thee will I break in pieces the chariot and his rider;

Jeremiah 51:22 With thee also will I break in pieces man and woman; and with
thee will I break in pieces old and young; and with thee will I break in
pieces the young man and the maid;

Jeremiah 51:23 I will also break in pieces with thee the shepherd and his
flock; and with thee will I break in pieces the husbandman and his yoke of
oxen; and with thee will I break in pieces captains and rulers.

Jeremiah 51:24 And I will render unto Babylon and to all the inhabitants of
Chaldea all their evil that they have done in Zion in your sight, saith the
LORD.

Jeremiah 51:25 Behold, I am against thee, O destroying mountain, saith the
LORD, which destroyest all the earth: and I will stretch out mine hand upon
thee, and roll thee down from the rocks, and will make thee a burnt mountain.

Jeremiah 51:26 And they shall not take of thee a stone for a corner, nor a
stone for foundations; but thou shalt be desolate for ever, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 51:27 Set ye up a standard in the land, blow the trumpet among the
nations, prepare the nations against her, call together against her the
kingdoms of Ararat, Minni, and Ashchenaz; appoint a captain against her; cause
the horses to come up as the rough caterpillars.

Jeremiah 51:28 Prepare against her the nations with the kings of the Medes,
the captains thereof, and all the rulers thereof, and all the land of his
dominion.

Jeremiah 51:29 And the land shall tremble and sorrow: for every purpose of
the LORD shall be performed against Babylon, to make the land of Babylon a
desolation without an inhabitant.

Jeremiah 51:30 The mighty men of Babylon have forborne to fight, they have
remained in their holds: their might hath failed; they became as women: they
have burned her dwellingplaces; her bars are broken.

Jeremiah 51:31 One post shall run to meet another, and one messenger to meet
another, to show the king of Babylon that his city is taken at one end,

Jeremiah 51:32 And that the passages are stopped, and the reeds they have
burned with fire, and the men of war are affrighted.

Jeremiah 51:33 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; The
daughter of Babylon is like a threshingfloor, it is time to thresh her: yet a
little while, and the time of her harvest shall come.

Jeremiah 51:34 Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon hath devoured me, he hath
crushed me, he hath made me an empty vessel, he hath swallowed me up like a
dragon, he hath filled his belly with my delicates, he hath cast me out.

Jeremiah 51:35 The violence done to me and to my flesh be upon Babylon,
shall the inhabitant of Zion say; and my blood upon the inhabitants of
Chaldea, shall Jerusalem say.

Jeremiah 51:36 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will plead thy
cause, and take vengeance for thee; and I will dry up her sea, and make her
springs dry.

Jeremiah 51:37 And Babylon shall become heaps, a dwellingplace for dragons,
an astonishment, and an hissing, without an inhabitant.

Jeremiah 51:38 They shall roar together like lions: they shall yell as
lions' whelps.

Jeremiah 51:39 In their heat I will make their feasts, and I will make them
drunken, that they may rejoice, and sleep a perpetual sleep, and not wake,
saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 51:40 I will bring them down like lambs to the slaughter, like rams
with he goats.

Jeremiah 51:41 How is Sheshach taken! and how is the praise of the whole
earth surprised! how is Babylon become an astonishment among the nations!

Jeremiah 51:42 The sea is come up upon Babylon: she is covered with the
multitude of the waves thereof.

Jeremiah 51:43 Her cities are a desolation, a dry land, and a wilderness, a
land wherein no man dwelleth, neither doth any son of man pass thereby.

Jeremiah 51:44 And I will punish Bel in Babylon, and I will bring forth out
of his mouth that which he hath swallowed up: and the nations shall not flow
together any more unto him: yea, the wall of Babylon shall fall.

Jeremiah 51:45 My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver ye
every man his soul from the fierce anger of the LORD.

Jeremiah 51:46 And lest your heart faint, and ye fear for the rumour that
shall be heard in the land; a rumour shall both come one year, and after that
in another year shall come a rumour, and violence in the land, ruler against
ruler.

Jeremiah 51:47 Therefore, behold, the days come, that I will do judgment
upon the graven images of Babylon: and her whole land shall be confounded, and
all her slain shall fall in the midst of her.

Jeremiah 51:48 Then the heaven and the earth, and all that is therein, shall
sing for Babylon: for the spoilers shall come unto her from the north, saith
the LORD.

Jeremiah 51:49 As Babylon hath caused the slain of Israel to fall, so at
Babylon shall fall the slain of all the earth.

Jeremiah 51:50 Ye that have escaped the sword, go away, stand not still:
remember the LORD afar off, and let Jerusalem come into your mind.

Jeremiah 51:51 We are confounded, because we have heard reproach: shame hath
covered our faces: for strangers are come into the sanctuaries of the LORD'S
house.

Jeremiah 51:52 Wherefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will
do judgment upon her graven images: and through all her land the wounded shall
groan.

Jeremiah 51:53 Though Babylon should mount up to heaven, and though she
should fortify the height of her strength, yet from me shall spoilers come
unto her, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 51:54 A sound of a cry cometh from Babylon, and great destruction
from the land of the Chaldeans:

Jeremiah 51:55 Because the LORD hath spoiled Babylon, and destroyed out of
her the great voice; when her waves do roar like great waters, a noise of
their voice is uttered:

Jeremiah 51:56 Because the spoiler is come upon her, even upon Babylon, and
her mighty men are taken, every one of their bows is broken: for the LORD God
of recompenses shall surely requite.

Jeremiah 51:57 And I will make drunk her princes, and her wise men, her
captains, and her rulers, and her mighty men: and they shall sleep a perpetual
sleep, and not wake, saith the King, whose name is the LORD of hosts.

Jeremiah 51:58 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; The broad walls of Babylon
shall be utterly broken, and her high gates shall be burned with fire; and the
people shall labour in vain, and the folk in the fire, and they shall be
weary.

Jeremiah 51:59 The word which Jeremiah the prophet commanded Seraiah the son
of Neriah, the son of Maaseiah, when he went with Zedekiah the king of Judah
into Babylon in the fourth year of his reign. And this Seraiah was a quiet
prince.

Jeremiah 51:60 So Jeremiah wrote in a book all the evil that should come
upon Babylon, even all these words that are written against Babylon.

Jeremiah 51:61 And Jeremiah said to Seraiah, When thou comest to Babylon,
and shalt see, and shalt read all these words;

Jeremiah 51:62 Then shalt thou say, O LORD, thou hast spoken against this
place, to cut it off, that none shall remain in it, neither man nor beast, but
that it shall be desolate for ever.

Jeremiah 51:63 And it shall be, when thou hast made an end of reading this
book, that thou shalt bind a stone to it, and cast it into the midst of
Euphrates:

Jeremiah 51:64 And thou shalt say, Thus shall Babylon sink, and shall not
rise from the evil that I will bring upon her: and they shall be weary. Thus
far are the words of Jeremiah.

Jeremiah 52:1 Zedekiah was one and twenty years old when he began to reign,
and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Hamutal
the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah.

Jeremiah 52:2 And he did that which was evil in the eyes of the LORD,
according to all that Jehoiakim had done.

Jeremiah 52:3 For through the anger of the LORD it came to pass in Jerusalem
and Judah, till he had cast them out from his presence, that Zedekiah rebelled
against the king of Babylon.

Jeremiah 52:4 And it came to pass in the ninth year of his reign, in the
tenth month, in the tenth day of the month, that Nebuchadrezzar king of
Babylon came, he and all his army, against Jerusalem, and pitched against it,
and built forts against it round about.

Jeremiah 52:5 So the city was besieged unto 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.

Jeremiah 52:8 But the army of the Chaldeans pursued after the king, and
overtook Zedekiah in the plains of Jericho; and all his army was scattered
from him.

Jeremiah 52:9 Then they took the king, and carried him up unto 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 slew also all the princes of Judah in Riblah.

Jeremiah 52:11 Then he put out the eyes of Zedekiah; and the king of Babylon
bound him in chains, and carried him to Babylon, and put him in prison till
the day of his death.

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, came Nebuzaradan,
captain of the guard, which served the king of Babylon, into Jerusalem,

Jeremiah 52:13 And burned the house of the LORD, and the king's house; and
all the houses of Jerusalem, and all the houses of the great men, burned he
with fire:

Jeremiah 52:14 And all the army of the Chaldeans, that were with the captain
of the guard, brake down all the walls of Jerusalem round about.

Jeremiah 52:15 Then Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried away
captive certain of the poor of the people, and the residue of the people that
remained in the city, and those that fell away, that fell to the king of
Babylon, and the rest of the multitude.

Jeremiah 52:16 But Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard left certain 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 brake, and carried all the brass of them to Babylon.

Jeremiah 52:18 The caldrons also, and the shovels, and the snuffers, and the
bowls, and the spoons, and all the vessels of brass wherewith they ministered,
took they 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, took the captain of
the guard 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 did compass 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 unto these.

Jeremiah 52:23 And there were ninety and six pomegranates on a side; and all
the pomegranates upon the network were an 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 took also out of the city an eunuch, which had the charge
of the men of war; and seven men of them that were near the king's person,
which were found in the city; and the principal scribe of the host, who
mustered the people of the land; and threescore men of the people of the land,
that 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 smote 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 Jews and three and twenty:

Jeremiah 52:29 In the eighteenth year of Nebuchadrezzar he carried away
captive from Jerusalem eight hundred thirty and two persons:

Jeremiah 52:30 In the three and twentieth year of Nebuchadrezzar Nebuzaradan
the captain of the guard carried away captive of the Jews seven hundred forty
and five persons: all the persons were four thousand and six hundred.

Jeremiah 52:31 And it came to pass in the seven and thirtieth year of the
captivity of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the twelfth month, in the five and
twentieth 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 spake kindly unto him, and set his throne above the
throne of the kings that were with him in Babylon,

Jeremiah 52:33 And changed his prison garments: and he did continually eat
bread before him all the days of his life.

Jeremiah 52:34 And for his diet, there was a continual diet given him of the
king of Babylon, every day a portion until the day of his death, all the days
of his life.
