King James Version 1611 - 1769



Jeremiah 1

1  The words1697 of Jeremiah3414 the son1121 of Hilkiah,2518 of4480 the priests3548 that834 were in Anathoth6068 in the land776 of Benjamin:1144

2  To whom834 the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 in the days3117 of Josiah2977 the son1121 of Amon526 king4428 of Judah,3063 in the thirteenth7969 6240 year8141 of his reign.4427

3  It came1961 also in the days3117 of Jehoiakim3079 the son1121 of Josiah2977 king4428 of Judah,3063 unto5704 the end8552 of the eleventh6249 6240 year8141 of Zedekiah6667 the son1121 of Josiah2977 king4428 of Judah,3063 unto5704 the carrying away1540 of Jerusalem3389 captive in the fifth2549 month.2320

4  Then the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559

5  Before2962 I formed3335 thee in the belly990 I knew3045 thee; and before2962 thou camest forth3318 out of the womb4480 7358 I sanctified6942 thee, and I ordained5414 thee a prophet5030 unto the nations.1471

6  Then said559 I, Ah,162 Lord136 GOD!3069 behold,2009 I cannot3808 3045 speak:1696 for3588 I595 am a child.5288

7  But the LORD3068 said559 unto413 me, Say559 not,408 I595 am a child:5288 for3588 thou shalt go1980 to5921 all3605 that834 I shall send7971 thee, and whatsoever3605 834 I command6680 thee thou shalt speak.1696

8  Be not408 afraid3372 of their faces:4480 6440 for3588 I589 am with854 thee to deliver5337 thee, saith5002 the LORD.3068

9  Then the LORD3068 put forth7971 853 his hand,3027 and touched5060 5921 my mouth.6310 And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 me, Behold,2009 I have put5414 my words1697 in thy mouth.6310

10  See,7200 I have this2088 day3117 set6485 thee over5921 the nations1471 and over5921 the kingdoms,4467 to root out,5428 and to pull down,5422 and to destroy,6 and to throw down,2040 to build,1129 and to plant.5193

11  Moreover the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559 Jeremiah,3414 what4100 seest7200 thou?859 And I said,559 I589 see7200 a rod4731 of an almond tree.8247

12  Then said559 the LORD3068 unto413 me, Thou hast well3190 seen:7200 for3588 I589 will hasten8245 5921 my word1697 to perform6213 it.

13  And the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me the second time,8145 saying,559 What4100 seest7200 thou?859 And I said,559 I589 see7200 a seething5301 pot;5518 and the face6440 thereof is toward4480 6440 the north.6828

14  Then the LORD3068 said559 unto413 me, Out of the north4480 6828 an evil7451 shall break forth6605 upon5921 all3605 the inhabitants3427 of the land.776

15  For,3588 lo,2009 I will call7121 all3605 the families4940 of the kingdoms4467 of the north,6828 saith5002 the LORD;3068 and they shall come,935 and they shall set5414 every one376 his throne3678 at the entering6607 of the gates8179 of Jerusalem,3389 and against5921 all3605 the walls2346 thereof round about,5439 and against5921 all3605 the cities5892 of Judah.3063

16  And I will utter1696 my judgments4941 against them touching5921 all3605 their wickedness,7451 who834 have forsaken5800 me, and have burned incense6999 unto other312 gods,430 and worshiped7812 the works4639 of their own hands.3027

17  Thou859 therefore gird up247 thy loins,4975 and arise,6965 and speak1696 unto413 them 853 all3605 that834 I595 command6680 thee: be not408 dismayed2865 at their faces,4480 6440 lest6435 I confound2865 thee before6440 them.

18  For,589 behold,2009 I have made5414 thee this day3117 a defensed4013 city,5892 and an iron1270 pillar,5982 and brazen5178 walls2346 against5921 the whole3605 land,776 against the kings4428 of Judah,3063 against the princes8269 thereof, against the priests3548 thereof, and against the people5971 of the land.776

19  And they shall fight3898 against413 thee; but they shall not3808 prevail3201 against thee; for3588 I589 am with854 thee, saith5002 the LORD,3068 to deliver5337 thee.

Jeremiah 2

1  Moreover the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 to413 me, saying,559

2  Go1980 and cry7121 in the ears241 of Jerusalem,3389 saying,559 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD;3068 I remember2142 thee, the kindness2617 of thy youth,5271 the love160 of thine espousals,3623 when thou wentest1980 after310 me in the wilderness,4057 in a land776 that was not3808 sown.2232

3  Israel3478 was holiness6944 unto the LORD,3068 and the firstfruits7225 of his increase:8393 all3605 that devour398 him shall offend;816 evil7451 shall come935 upon413 them, saith5002 the LORD.3068

4  Hear8085 ye the word1697 of the LORD,3068 O house1004 of Jacob,3290 and all3605 the families4940 of the house1004 of Israel:3478

5  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 What4100 iniquity5766 have your fathers1 found4672 in me, that3588 they are gone far7368 from4480 5921 me, and have walked1980 after310 vanity,1892 and are become vain?1891

6  Neither3808 said559 they, Where346 is the LORD3068 that brought us up5927 853 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt,4714 that led1980 us through the wilderness,4057 through a land776 of deserts6160 and of pits,7745 through a land776 of drought,6723 and of the shadow of death,6757 through a land776 that no3808 man376 passed through,5674 and where8033 no3808 man120 dwelt?3427

7  And I brought935 you into413 a plentiful3759 country,776 to eat398 the fruit6529 thereof and the goodness2898 thereof; but when ye entered,935 ye defiled2930 853 my land,776 and made7760 mine heritage5159 an abomination.8441

8  The priests3548 said559 not,3808 Where346 is the LORD?3068 and they that handle8610 the law8451 knew3045 me not:3808 the pastors7462 also transgressed6586 against me, and the prophets5030 prophesied5012 by Baal,1168 and walked1980 after310 things that do not3808 profit.3276

9  Wherefore3651 I will yet5750 plead7378 with854 you, saith5002 the LORD,3068 and with854 your children's1121 children1121 will I plead.7378

10  For3588 pass over5674 the isles339 of Chittim,3794 and see;7200 and send7971 unto Kedar,6938 and consider995 diligently,3966 and see7200 if there be1961 such2063 a thing.

11  Hath a nation1471 changed4171 their gods,430 which1992 are yet no3808 gods?430 but my people5971 have changed4171 their glory3519 for that which doth not3808 profit.3276

12  Be astonished,8074 O ye heavens,8064 at5921 this,2063 and be horribly afraid,8175 be ye very3966 desolate,2717 saith5002 the LORD.3068

13  For3588 my people5971 have committed6213 two8147 evils;7451 they have forsaken5800 me the fountain4726 of living2416 waters,4325 and hewed them out2672 cisterns,877 broken7665 cisterns,877 that834 can hold3557 no3808 water.4325

14  Is Israel3478 a servant?5650 is he1931 a homeborn1004 3211 slave? why4069 is1961 he spoiled?957

15  The young lions3715 roared7580 upon5921 him, and yelled,5414 6963 and they made7896 his land776 waste:8047 his cities5892 are burned3341 without4480 1097 inhabitant.3427

16  Also1571 the children1121 of Noph5297 and Tahapanes8471 have broken7462 the crown of thy head.6936

17  Hast thou not3808 procured6213 this2063 unto thyself, in that thou hast forsaken5800 853 the LORD3068 thy God,430 when6256 he led1980 thee by the way?1870

18  And now6258 what4100 hast thou to do in the way1870 of Egypt,4714 to drink8354 the waters4325 of Sihor?7883 or what4100 hast thou to do in the way1870 of Assyria,804 to drink8354 the waters4325 of the river?5104

19  Thine own wickedness7451 shall correct3256 thee, and thy backslidings4878 shall reprove3198 thee: know3045 therefore and see7200 that3588 it is an evil7451 thing and bitter,4751 that thou hast forsaken5800 853 the LORD3068 thy God,430 and that my fear6345 is not3808 in413 thee, saith5002 the Lord136 GOD3069 of hosts.6635

20  For3588 of old time4480 5769 I have broken7665 thy yoke,5923 and burst5423 thy bands;4147 and thou saidst,559 I will not3808 transgress;5674 when3588 upon5921 every3605 high1364 hill1389 and under8478 every3605 green7488 tree6086 thou859 wanderest,6808 playing the harlot.2181

21  Yet I595 had planted5193 thee a noble vine,8321 wholly3605 a right571 seed:2233 how349 then art thou turned2015 into the degenerate5494 plant of a strange5237 vine1612 unto me?

22  For3588 though518 thou wash3526 thee with niter,5427 and take thee much7235 soap,1287 yet thine iniquity5771 is marked3799 before6440 me, saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069

23  How349 canst thou say,559 I am not3808 polluted,2930 I have not3808 gone1980 after310 Baalim?1168 see7200 thy way1870 in the valley,1516 know3045 what4100 thou hast done:6213 thou art a swift7031 dromedary1072 traversing8308 her ways;1870

24  A wild ass6501 used3928 to the wilderness,4057 that snuffeth up7602 the wind7307 at her pleasure;185 5315 in her occasion8385 who4310 can turn her away?7725 all3605 they that seek1245 her will not3808 weary3286 themselves; in her month2320 they shall find4672 her.

25  Withhold4513 thy foot7272 from being unshod,4480 3182 and thy throat1627 from thirst:4480 6773 but thou saidst,559 There is no hope:2976 no;3808 for3588 I have loved157 strangers,2114 and after310 them will I go.1980

26  As the thief1590 is ashamed1322 when3588 he is found,4672 so3651 is the house1004 of Israel3478 ashamed;954 they,1992 their kings,4428 their princes,8269 and their priests,3548 and their prophets,5030

27  Saying559 to a stock,6086 Thou859 art my father;1 and to a stone,68 Thou859 hast brought me forth:3205 for3588 they have turned6437 their back6203 unto413 me, and not3808 their face:6440 but in the time6256 of their trouble7451 they will say,559 Arise,6965 and save3467 us.

28  But where346 are thy gods430 that834 thou hast made6213 thee? let them arise,6965 if518 they can save3467 thee in the time6256 of thy trouble:7451 for3588 according to the number4557 of thy cities5892 are1961 thy gods,430 O Judah.3063

29  Wherefore4100 will ye plead7378 with413 me? ye all3605 have transgressed6586 against me, saith5002 the LORD.3068

30  In vain7723 have I smitten5221 853 your children;1121 they received3947 no3808 correction:4148 your own sword2719 hath devoured398 your prophets,5030 like a destroying7843 lion.738

31  O generation,1755 see7200 ye859 the word1697 of the LORD.3068 Have I been1961 a wilderness4057 unto Israel?3478 a land776 of darkness?3991 wherefore4069 say559 my people,5971 We are lords;7300 we will come935 no3808 more5750 unto413 thee?

32  Can a maid1330 forget7911 her ornaments,5716 or a bride3618 her attire?7196 yet my people5971 have forgotten7911 me days3117 without369 number.4557

33  Why4100 trimmest3190 thou thy way1870 to seek1245 love?160 therefore3651 hast thou also1571 taught3925 853 the wicked ones7451 853 thy ways.1870

34  Also1571 in thy skirts3671 is found4672 the blood1818 of the souls5315 of the poor34 innocents:5355 I have not3808 found4672 it by secret search,4290 but3588 upon5921 all3605 these.428

35  Yet thou sayest,559 Because3588 I am innocent,5352 surely389 his anger639 shall turn7725 from4480 me. Behold,2009 I will plead with8199 thee, because5921 thou sayest,559 I have not3808 sinned.2398

36  Why4100 gaddest235 thou about so much3966 to change8138 853 thy way?1870 thou also1571 shalt be ashamed954 of Egypt,4480 4714 as834 thou wast ashamed954 of Assyria.4480 804

37  Yea,1571 thou shalt go forth3318 from4480 854 him,2088 and thine hands3027 upon5921 thine head:7218 for3588 the LORD3068 hath rejected3988 thy confidences,4009 and thou shalt not3808 prosper6743 in them.

Jeremiah 3

1  They say,559 If2005 a man376 put away7971 853 his wife,802 and she go1980 from4480 854 him, and become1961 another312 man's,376 shall he return7725 unto413 her again?5750 shall not3808 that1931 land776 be greatly polluted?2610 2610 but thou859 hast played the harlot2181 with many7227 lovers;7453 yet return7725 again to413 me, saith5002 the LORD.3068

2  Lift up5375 thine eyes5869 unto5921 the high places,8205 and see7200 where375 thou hast not3808 been lain7901 with. In5921 the ways1870 hast thou sat3427 for them, as the Arabian6163 in the wilderness;4057 and thou hast polluted2610 the land776 with thy whoredoms2184 and with thy wickedness.7451

3  Therefore the showers7241 have been withheld,4513 and there hath been1961 no3808 latter rain;4456 and thou hadst a whore's802 2181 forehead,4696 thou refusedst3985 to be ashamed.3637

4  Wilt thou not3808 from this time4480 6258 cry7121 unto me, My father,1 thou859 art the guide441 of my youth?5271

5  Will he reserve5201 his anger forever?5769 will he keep8104 it to the end?5331 Behold,2009 thou hast spoken1696 and done6213 evil things7451 as thou couldest.3201

6  The LORD3068 said559 also unto413 me in the days3117 of Josiah2977 the king,4428 Hast thou seen7200 that which834 backsliding4878 Israel3478 hath done?6213 she1931 is gone up1980 upon5921 every3605 high1364 mountain2022 and under8478 every3605 green7488 tree,6086 and there8033 hath played the harlot.2181

7  And I said559 after310 she had done6213 853 all3605 these428 things, Turn7725 thou unto413 me. But she returned7725 not.3808 And her treacherous901 sister269 Judah3063 saw7200 it.

8  And I saw,7200 when3588 for5921 all3605 the causes182 whereby834 backsliding4878 Israel3478 committed adultery5003 I had put her away,7971 and given5414 413 her 853 a bill5612 of divorce;3748 yet her treacherous898 sister269 Judah3063 feared3372 not,3808 but went1980 and played the harlot2181 also.1571

9  And it came to pass1961 through the lightness4480 6963 of her whoredom,2184 that she defiled2610 853 the land,776 and committed adultery5003 with854 stones68 and with854 stocks.6086

10  And yet1571 for all3605 this2063 her treacherous901 sister269 Judah3063 hath not3808 turned7725 unto413 me with her whole3605 heart,3820 but3588 518 feignedly,8267 saith5002 the LORD.3068

11  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 me, The backsliding4878 Israel3478 hath justified6663 herself5315 more than treacherous4480 898 Judah.3063

12  Go1980 and proclaim7121 853 these428 words1697 toward the north,6828 and say,559 Return,7725 thou backsliding4878 Israel,3478 saith5002 the LORD;3068 and I will not3808 cause mine anger6440 to fall5307 upon you: for3588 I589 am merciful,2623 saith5002 the LORD,3068 and I will not3808 keep5201 anger forever.5769

13  Only389 acknowledge3045 thine iniquity,5771 that3588 thou hast transgressed6586 against the LORD3068 thy God,430 and hast scattered6340 853 thy ways1870 to the strangers2114 under8478 every3605 green7488 tree,6086 and ye have not3808 obeyed8085 my voice,6963 saith5002 the LORD.3068

14  Turn,7725 O backsliding7726 children,1121 saith5002 the LORD;3068 for3588 I595 am married1166 unto you: and I will take3947 you one259 of a city,4480 5892 and two8147 of a family,4480 4940 and I will bring935 you to Zion:6726

15  And I will give5414 you pastors7462 according to mine heart,3820 which shall feed7462 you with knowledge1844 and understanding.7919

16  And it shall come to pass,1961 when3588 ye be multiplied7235 and increased6509 in the land,776 in those1992 days,3117 saith5002 the LORD,3068 they shall say559 no3808 more,5750 The ark727 of the covenant1285 of the LORD:3068 neither3808 shall it come5927 to5921 mind:3820 neither3808 shall they remember2142 it; neither3808 shall they visit6485 it; neither3808 shall that be done6213 any more.5750

17  At that1931 time6256 they shall call7121 Jerusalem3389 the throne3678 of the LORD;3068 and all3605 the nations1471 shall be gathered6960 unto413 it, to the name8034 of the LORD,3068 to Jerusalem:3389 neither3808 shall they walk1980 any more5750 after310 the imagination8307 of their evil7451 heart.3820

18  In those1992 days3117 the house1004 of Judah3063 shall walk1980 with5921 the house1004 of Israel,3478 and they shall come935 together3162 out of the land4480 776 of the north6828 to5921 the land776 that834 I have given for an inheritance5157 unto 853 your fathers.1

19  But I595 said,559 How349 shall I put7896 thee among the children,1121 and give5414 thee a pleasant2532 land,776 a goodly6643 heritage5159 of the hosts6635 of nations?1471 and I said,559 Thou shalt call7121 me, My father;1 and shalt not3808 turn away7725 from4480 310 me.

20  Surely403 as a wife802 treacherously departeth898 from her husband,4480 1167 so3651 have ye dealt treacherously898 with me, O house1004 of Israel,3478 saith5002 the LORD.3068

21  A voice6963 was heard8085 upon5921 the high places,8205 weeping1065 and supplications8469 of the children1121 of Israel:3478 for3588 they have perverted5753 853 their way,1870 and they have forgotten7911 853 the LORD3068 their God.430

22  Return,7725 ye backsliding7726 children,1121 and I will heal7495 your backslidings.4878 Behold,2009 we come857 unto thee; for3588 thou859 art the LORD3068 our God.430

23  Truly403 in vain8267 is salvation hoped for from the hills,4480 1389 and from the multitude1995 of mountains:2022 truly403 in the LORD3068 our God430 is the salvation8668 of Israel.3478

24  For shame1322 hath devoured398 853 the labor3018 of our fathers1 from our youth;4480 5271 853 their flocks6629 and their herds,1241 853 their sons1121 and their daughters.1323

25  We lie down7901 in our shame,1322 and our confusion3639 covereth3680 us: for3588 we have sinned2398 against the LORD3068 our God,430 we587 and our fathers,1 from our youth4480 5271 even unto5704 this2088 day,3117 and have not3808 obeyed8085 the voice6963 of the LORD3068 our God.430

Jeremiah 4

1  If518 thou wilt return,7725 O Israel,3478 saith5002 the LORD,3068 return7725 unto413 me: and if518 thou wilt put away5493 thine abominations8251 out of my sight,4480 6440 then shalt thou not3808 remove.5110

2  And thou shalt swear,7650 The LORD3068 liveth,2416 in truth,571 in judgment,4941 and in righteousness;6666 and the nations1471 shall bless themselves1288 in him, and in him shall they glory.1984

3  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 to the men376 of Judah3063 and Jerusalem,3389 Break up5214 your fallow ground,5215 and sow2232 not408 among413 thorns.6975

4  Circumcise yourselves4135 to the LORD,3068 and take away5493 the foreskins6190 of your heart,3824 ye men376 of Judah3063 and inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem:3389 lest6435 my fury2534 come forth3318 like fire,784 and burn1197 that none369 can quench3518 it, because4480 6440 of the evil7455 of your doings.4611

5  Declare5046 ye in Judah,3063 and publish8085 in Jerusalem;3389 and say,559 Blow8628 ye the trumpet7782 in the land:776 cry,7121 gather together,4390 and say,559 Assemble yourselves,622 and let us go935 into413 the defensed4013 cities.5892

6  Set up5375 the standard5251 toward Zion:6726 retire,5756 stay5975 not:408 for3588 I595 will bring935 evil7451 from the north,4480 6828 and a great1419 destruction.7667

7  The lion738 is come up5927 from his thicket,4480 5441 and the destroyer7843 of the Gentiles1471 is on his way;5265 he is gone forth3318 from his place4480 4725 to make7760 thy land776 desolate;8047 and thy cities5892 shall be laid waste,5327 without4480 369 an inhabitant.3427

8  For5921 this2063 gird2296 you with sackcloth,8242 lament5594 and howl:3213 for3588 the fierce2740 anger639 of the LORD3068 is not3808 turned back7725 from4480 us.

9  And it shall come to pass1961 at that1931 day,3117 saith5002 the LORD,3068 that the heart3820 of the king4428 shall perish,6 and the heart3820 of the princes;8269 and the priests3548 shall be astonished,8074 and the prophets5030 shall wonder.8539

10  Then said559 I, Ah,162 Lord136 GOD!3069 surely403 thou hast greatly deceived5377 5377 this2088 people5971 and Jerusalem,3389 saying,559 Ye shall have1961 peace;7965 whereas the sword2719 reacheth5060 unto5704 the soul.5315

11  At that1931 time6256 shall it be said559 to this2088 people5971 and to Jerusalem,3389 A dry6703 wind7307 of the high places8205 in the wilderness4057 toward the daughter1323 of my people,5971 not3808 to fan,2219 nor3808 to cleanse,1305

12  Even a full4392 wind7307 from those4480 428 places shall come935 unto me: now6258 also1571 will I589 give1696 sentence4941 against them.

13  Behold,2009 he shall come up5927 as clouds,6051 and his chariots4818 shall be as a whirlwind:5492 his horses5483 are swifter7043 than eagles.4480 5404 Woe188 unto us! for3588 we are spoiled.7703

14  O Jerusalem,3389 wash3526 thine heart3820 from wickedness,4480 7451 that4616 thou mayest be saved.3467 How long5704 4970 shall thy vain205 thoughts4284 lodge3885 within7130 thee?

15  For3588 a voice6963 declareth5046 from Dan,4480 1835 and publisheth8085 affliction205 from mount4480 2022 Ephraim.669

16  Make ye mention2142 to the nations;1471 behold,2009 publish8085 against5921 Jerusalem,3389 that watchers5341 come935 from a far4801 country,4480 776 and give out5414 their voice6963 against5921 the cities5892 of Judah.3063

17  As keepers8104 of a field,7704 are1961 they against5921 her round about;4480 5439 because3588 she hath been rebellious4784 against me, saith5002 the LORD.3068

18  Thy way1870 and thy doings4611 have procured6213 these428 things unto thee; this2063 is thy wickedness,7451 because3588 it is bitter,4751 because3588 it reacheth5060 unto5704 thine heart.3820

19  My bowels,4578 my bowels!4578 I am pained3176 at my very7023 heart;3820 my heart3820 maketh a noise1993 in me; I cannot3808 hold my peace,2790 because3588 thou hast heard,8085 O my soul,5315 the sound6963 of the trumpet,7782 the alarm8643 of war.4421

20  Destruction7667 upon5921 destruction7667 is cried;7121 for3588 the whole3605 land776 is spoiled:7703 suddenly6597 are my tents168 spoiled,7703 and my curtains3407 in a moment.7281

21  How long5704 4970 shall I see7200 the standard,5251 and hear8085 the sound6963 of the trumpet?7782

22  For3588 my people5971 is foolish,191 they have not3808 known3045 me; they1992 are sottish5530 children,1121 and they1992 have none3808 understanding:995 they1992 are wise2450 to do evil,7489 but to do good3190 they have no3808 knowledge.3045

23  I beheld7200 853 the earth,776 and, lo,2009 it was without form,8414 and void;922 and the heavens,8064 and they had no369 light.216

24  I beheld7200 the mountains,2022 and, lo,2009 they trembled,7493 and all3605 the hills1389 moved lightly.7043

25  I beheld,7200 and, lo,2009 there was no369 man,120 and all3605 the birds5775 of the heavens8064 were fled.5074

26  I beheld,7200 and, lo,2009 the fruitful place3759 was a wilderness,4057 and all3605 the cities5892 thereof were broken down5422 at the presence4480 6440 of the LORD,3068 and by4480 6440 his fierce2740 anger.639

27  For3588 thus3541 hath the LORD3068 said,559 The whole3605 land776 shall be1961 desolate;8077 yet will I not3808 make6213 a full end.3617

28  For5921 this2063 shall the earth776 mourn,56 and the heavens8064 above4480 4605 be black:6937 because5921 3588 I have spoken1696 it, I have purposed2161 it, and will not3808 repent,5162 neither3808 will I turn back7725 from4480 it.

29  The whole3605 city5892 shall flee1272 for the noise4480 6963 of the horsemen6571 and bowmen;7411 7198 they shall go935 into thickets,5645 and climb up5927 upon the rocks:3710 every3605 city5892 shall be forsaken,5800 and not369 a man376 dwell3427 therein.2004

30  And when thou859 art spoiled,7703 what4100 wilt thou do?6213 Though3588 thou clothest3847 thyself with crimson,8144 though3588 thou deckest5710 thee with ornaments5716 of gold,2091 though3588 thou rentest7167 thy face5869 with painting,6320 in vain7723 shalt thou make thyself fair;3302 thy lovers5689 will despise3988 thee, they will seek1245 thy life.5315

31  For3588 I have heard8085 a voice6963 as of a woman in travail,2470 and the anguish6869 as of her that bringeth forth her first child,1069 the voice6963 of the daughter1323 of Zion,6726 that bewaileth herself,3306 that spreadeth6566 her hands,3709 saying, Woe188 is me now!4994 for3588 my soul5315 is wearied5888 because of murderers.2026

Jeremiah 5

1  Run ye to and fro7751 through the streets2351 of Jerusalem,3389 and see7200 now,4994 and know,3045 and seek1245 in the broad places7339 thereof, if518 ye can find4672 a man,376 if518 there be3426 any that executeth6213 judgment,4941 that seeketh1245 the truth;530 and I will pardon5545 it.

2  And though518 they say,559 The LORD3068 liveth;2416 surely3651 they swear7650 falsely.8267

3  O LORD,3068 are not3808 thine eyes5869 upon the truth?530 thou hast stricken5221 them, but they have not3808 grieved;2342 thou hast consumed3615 them, but they have refused3985 to receive3947 correction:4148 they have made their faces6440 harder2388 than a rock;4480 5553 they have refused3985 to return.7725

4  Therefore I589 said,559 Surely389 these1992 are poor;1800 they are foolish:2973 for3588 they know3045 not3808 the way1870 of the LORD,3068 nor the judgment4941 of their God.430

5  I will get1980 me unto413 the great men,1419 and will speak unto1696 them; for3588 they1992 have known3045 the way1870 of the LORD,3068 and the judgment4941 of their God:430 but389 these1992 have altogether3162 broken7665 the yoke,5923 and burst5423 the bonds.4147

6  Wherefore5921 3651 a lion738 out of the forest4480 3293 shall slay5221 them, and a wolf2061 of the evenings6160 shall spoil7703 them, a leopard5246 shall watch8245 over5921 their cities:5892 every one3605 that goeth out3318 thence4480 2007 shall be torn in pieces:2963 because3588 their transgressions6588 are many,7231 and their backslidings4878 are increased.6105

7  How335 shall I pardon5545 thee for this?2063 thy children1121 have forsaken5800 me, and sworn7650 by them that are no3808 gods:430 when I had fed them to the full,7646 853 they then committed adultery,5003 and assembled themselves1413 by troops in the harlots2181 houses.1004

8  They were1961 as fed2109 horses5483 in the morning:7904 every one376 neighed6670 after413 his neighbor's7453 wife.802

9  Shall I not3808 visit6485 for5921 these428 things? saith5002 the LORD:3068 and518 shall not3808 my soul5315 be avenged5358 on such834 a nation1471 as this?2088

10  Go ye up5927 upon her walls,8284 and destroy;7843 but make6213 not408 a full end:3617 take away5493 her battlements;5189 for3588 they1992 are not3808 the LORD's.3068

11  For3588 the house1004 of Israel3478 and the house1004 of Judah3063 have dealt very treacherously898 898 against me, saith5002 the LORD.3068

12  They have belied3584 the LORD,3068 and said,559 It is not3808 he;1931 neither3808 shall evil7451 come935 upon5921 us; neither3808 shall we see7200 sword2719 nor famine:7458

13  And the prophets5030 shall become1961 wind,7307 and the word1699 is not369 in them: thus3541 shall it be done6213 unto them.

14  Wherefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 God430 of hosts,6635 Because3282 ye speak1696 853 this2088 word,1697 behold,2009 I will make5414 my words1697 in thy mouth6310 fire,784 and this2088 people5971 wood,6086 and it shall devour398 them.

15  Lo,2009 I will bring935 a nation1471 upon5921 you from far,4480 4801 O house1004 of Israel,3478 saith5002 the LORD:3068 it1931 is a mighty386 nation,1471 it1931 is an ancient4480 5769 nation,1471 a nation1471 whose language3956 thou knowest3045 not,3808 neither3808 understandest8085 what4100 they say.1696

16  Their quiver827 is as an open6605 sepulcher,6913 they are all3605 mighty men.1368

17  And they shall eat up398 thine harvest,7105 and thy bread,3899 which thy sons1121 and thy daughters1323 should eat:398 they shall eat up398 thy flocks6629 and thine herds:1241 they shall eat up398 thy vines1612 and thy fig trees:8384 they shall impoverish7567 thy fenced4013 cities,5892 wherein834 thou859 trustedst,982 with the sword.2719

18  Nevertheless1571 in those1992 days,3117 saith5002 the LORD,3068 I will not3808 make6213 a full end3617 with854 you.

19  And it shall come to pass,1961 when3588 ye shall say,559 Wherefore8478 4100 doeth6213 the LORD3068 our God430 853 all3605 these428 things unto us? then shalt thou answer559 413 them, Like834 as ye have forsaken5800 me, and served5647 strange5236 gods430 in your land,776 so3651 shall ye serve5647 strangers2114 in a land776 that is not3808 yours.

20  Declare5046 this2063 in the house1004 of Jacob,3290 and publish8085 it in Judah,3063 saying,559

21  Hear8085 now4994 this,2063 O foolish5530 people,5971 and without369 understanding;3820 which have eyes,5869 and see7200 not;3808 which have ears,241 and hear8085 not:3808

22  Fear3372 ye not3808 me? saith5002 the LORD:3068 will ye not3808 tremble2342 at my presence,4480 6440 which834 have placed7760 the sand2344 for the bound1366 of the sea3220 by a perpetual5769 decree,2706 that it cannot3808 pass5674 it: and though the waves1530 thereof toss themselves,1607 yet can they not3808 prevail;3201 though they roar,1993 yet can they not3808 pass over5674 it?

23  But this2088 people5971 hath1961 a revolting5637 and a rebellious4784 heart;3820 they are revolted5493 and gone.1980

24  Neither3808 say559 they in their heart,3824 Let us now4994 fear3372 853 the LORD3068 our God,430 that giveth5414 rain,1653 both the former3138 and the latter,4456 in his season:6256 he reserveth8104 unto us the appointed2708 weeks7620 of the harvest.7105

25  Your iniquities5771 have turned away5186 these428 things, and your sins2403 have withheld4513 good2896 things from4480 you.

26  For3588 among my people5971 are found4672 wicked7563 men: they lay wait,7789 as he that setteth7918 snares;3353 they set5324 a trap,4889 they catch3920 men.376

27  As a cage3619 is full4392 of birds,5775 so3651 are their houses1004 full4392 of deceit:4820 therefore5921 3651 they are become great,1431 and waxen rich.6238

28  They are waxen fat,8080 they shine:6245 yea,1571 they overpass5674 the deeds1697 of the wicked:7451 they judge1777 not3808 the cause,1779 the cause1779 of the fatherless,3490 yet they prosper;6743 and the right4941 of the needy34 do they not3808 judge.8199

29  Shall I not3808 visit6485 for5921 these428 things? saith5002 the LORD:3068 shall not3808 my soul5315 be avenged5358 on such834 a nation1471 as this?2088

30  A wonderful8047 and horrible thing8186 is committed1961 in the land;776

31  The prophets5030 prophesy5012 falsely,8267 and the priests3548 bear rule7287 by5921 their means;3027 and my people5971 love157 to have it so:3651 and what4100 will ye do6213 in the end319 thereof?

Jeremiah 6

1  O ye children1121 of Benjamin,1144 gather yourselves to flee5756 out of the midst4480 7130 of Jerusalem,3389 and blow8628 the trumpet7782 in Tekoa,8620 and set up5375 a sign of fire4864 in5921 Beth-haccerem:1021 for3588 evil7451 appeareth8259 out of the north,4480 6828 and great1419 destruction.7667

2  I have likened1819 the daughter1323 of Zion6726 to a comely5000 and delicate6026 woman.

3  The shepherds7462 with their flocks5739 shall come935 unto413 her; they shall pitch8628 their tents168 against5921 her round about;5439 they shall feed7462 every one376 in854 his place.3027

4  Prepare6942 ye war4421 against5921 her; arise,6965 and let us go up5927 at noon.6672 Woe188 unto us! for3588 the day3117 goeth away,6437 for3588 the shadows6752 of the evening6153 are stretched out.5186

5  Arise,6965 and let us go5927 by night,3915 and let us destroy7843 her palaces.759

6  For3588 thus3541 hath the LORD3068 of hosts6635 said,559 Hew ye down3772 trees,6097 and cast8210 a mount5550 against5921 Jerusalem:3389 this1931 is the city5892 to be visited;6485 she is wholly3605 oppression6233 in the midst7130 of her.

7  As a fountain953 casteth out6979 her waters,4325 so3651 she casteth6979 out her wickedness:7451 violence2555 and spoil7701 is heard8085 in her; before5921 6440 me continually8548 is grief2483 and wounds.4347

8  Be thou instructed,3256 O Jerusalem,3389 lest6435 my soul5315 depart3363 from4480 thee; lest6435 I make7760 thee desolate,8077 a land776 not3808 inhabited.3427

9  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 They shall throughly glean5953 5953 the remnant7611 of Israel3478 as a vine:1612 turn back7725 thine hand3027 as a grape gatherer1219 into5921 the baskets.5552

10  To5921 whom4310 shall I speak,1696 and give warning,5749 that they may hear?8085 behold,2009 their ear241 is uncircumcised,6189 and they cannot3201 3808 hearken:7181 behold,2009 the word1697 of the LORD3068 is1961 unto them a reproach;2781 they have no3808 delight2654 in it.

11  Therefore I am full4392 of854 the fury2534 of the LORD;3068 I am weary3811 with holding3557 in: I will pour it out8210 upon5921 the children5768 abroad,2351 and upon5921 the assembly5475 of young men970 together:3162 for3588 even1571 the husband376 with5973 the wife802 shall be taken,3920 the aged2205 with5973 him that is full4390 of days.3117

12  And their houses1004 shall be turned5437 unto others,312 with their fields7704 and wives802 together:3162 for3588 I will stretch out5186 853 my hand3027 upon5921 the inhabitants3427 of the land,776 saith5002 the LORD.3068

13  For3588 from the least4480 6996 of them even unto5704 the greatest1419 of them every one3605 is given to1214 covetousness;1215 and from the prophet4480 5030 even unto5704 the priest3548 every one3605 dealeth6213 falsely.8267

14  They have healed7495 also 853 the hurt7667 of the daughter of my people5971 slightly,5921 7043 saying,559 Peace,7965 peace;7965 when there is no369 peace.7965

15  Were they ashamed954 when3588 they had committed6213 abomination?8441 nay,1571 they were not3808 at all ashamed,954 954 neither3808 could3045 they blush:3637 therefore3651 they shall fall5307 among them that fall:5307 at the time6256 that I visit6485 them they shall be cast down,3782 saith559 the LORD.3068

16  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Stand5975 ye in5921 the ways,1870 and see,7200 and ask7592 for the old5769 paths,5410 where335 2088 is the good2896 way,1870 and walk1980 therein, and ye shall find4672 rest4771 for your souls.5315 But they said,559 We will not3808 walk1980 therein.

17  Also I set6965 watchmen6822 over5921 you, saying, Hearken7181 to the sound6963 of the trumpet.7782 But they said,559 We will not3808 hearken.7181

18  Therefore3651 hear,8085 ye nations,1471 and know,3045 O congregation,5712 853 what834 is among them.

19  Hear,8085 O earth:776 behold,2009 I595 will bring935 evil7451 upon413 this2088 people,5971 even the fruit6529 of their thoughts,4284 because3588 they have not3808 hearkened7181 unto5921 my words,1697 nor to my law,8451 but rejected3988 it.

20  To what4100 purpose2088 cometh935 there to me incense3828 from Sheba,4480 7614 and the sweet2896 cane7070 from a far4801 country?4480 776 your burnt offerings5930 are not3808 acceptable,7522 nor3808 your sacrifices2077 sweet6149 unto me.

21  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Behold,2009 I will lay5414 stumblingblocks4383 before413 this2088 people,5971 and the fathers1 and the sons1121 together3162 shall fall3782 upon them; the neighbor7934 and his friend7453 shall perish.6

22  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Behold,2009 a people5971 cometh935 from the north6828 country,4480 776 and a great1419 nation1471 shall be raised5782 from the sides4480 3411 of the earth.776

23  They shall lay hold2388 on bow7198 and spear;3591 they1931 are cruel,394 and have no3808 mercy;7355 their voice6963 roareth1993 like the sea;3220 and they ride7392 upon5921 horses,5483 set in array6186 as men376 for war4421 against5921 thee, O daughter1323 of Zion.6726

24  We have heard8085 853 the fame8089 thereof: our hands3027 wax feeble:7503 anguish6869 hath taken hold2388 of us, and pain,2427 as of a woman in travail.3205

25  Go not forth408 3318 into the field,7704 nor408 walk1980 by the way;1870 for3588 the sword2719 of the enemy341 and fear4032 is on every side.4480 5439

26  O daughter1323 of my people,5971 gird2296 thee with sackcloth,8242 and wallow thyself6428 in ashes:665 make6213 thee mourning,60 as for an only son,3173 most bitter8563 lamentation:4553 for3588 the spoiler7703 shall suddenly6597 come935 upon5921 us.

27  I have set5414 thee for a tower969 and a fortress4013 among my people,5971 that thou mayest know3045 and try974 853 their way.1870

28  They are all3605 grievous5493 revolters,5637 walking1980 with slanders:7400 they are brass5178 and iron;1270 they1992 are all3605 corrupters.7843

29  The bellows4647 are burned,2787 the lead5777 is consumed8552 of the fire;4480 784 the founder6884 melteth6884 in vain:7723 for the wicked7451 are not3808 plucked away.5423

30  Reprobate3988 silver3701 shall men call7121 them, because3588 the LORD3068 hath rejected3988 them.

Jeremiah 7

1  The word1697 that834 came1961 to413 Jeremiah3414 from4480 854 the LORD,3068 saying,559

2  Stand5975 in the gate8179 of the LORD's3068 house,1004 and proclaim7121 there8033 853 this2088 word,1697 and say,559 Hear8085 the word1697 of the LORD,3068 all3605 ye of Judah,3063 that enter935 in at these428 gates8179 to worship7812 the LORD.3068

3  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 the God430 of Israel,3478 Amend3190 your ways1870 and your doings,4611 and I will cause you to dwell7931 in this2088 place.4725

4  Trust982 ye not408 in413 lying8267 words,1697 saying,559 The temple1964 of the LORD,3068 The temple1964 of the LORD,3068 The temple1964 of the LORD,3068 are these.1992

5  For3588 if518 ye throughly amend3190 3190 853 your ways1870 and your doings;4611 if518 ye throughly execute6213 6213 judgment4941 between996 a man376 and his neighbor;7453

6  If ye oppress6231 not3808 the stranger,1616 the fatherless,3490 and the widow,490 and shed8210 not408 innocent5355 blood1818 in this2088 place,4725 neither3808 walk1980 after310 other312 gods430 to your hurt:7451

7  Then will I cause you to dwell7931 in this2088 place,4725 in the land776 that834 I gave5414 to your fathers,1 forever4480 5769 and ever.5704 5769

8  Behold,2009 ye859 trust982 in5921 lying8267 words,1697 that cannot1115 profit.3276

9  Will ye steal,1589 murder,7523 and commit adultery,5003 and swear7650 falsely,8267 and burn incense6999 unto Baal,1168 and walk1980 after310 other312 gods430 whom834 ye know3045 not;3808

10  And come935 and stand5975 before6440 me in this2088 house,1004 which834 is called7121 by5921 my name,8034 and say,559 We are delivered to do5337 4616 6213 853 all3605 these428 abominations?8441

11  Is this2088 house,1004 which834 is called7121 by5921 my name,8034 become1961 a den4631 of robbers6530 in your eyes?5869 Behold,2009 even1571 I595 have seen7200 it, saith5002 the LORD.3068

12  But3588 go1980 ye now4994 unto413 my place4725 which834 was in Shiloh,7887 where834 I set7931 my name8034 at the first,7223 and see7200 853 what834 I did6213 to it for4480 6440 the wickedness7451 of my people5971 Israel.3478

13  And now,6528 because3282 ye have done6213 853 all3605 these428 works,4639 saith5002 the LORD,3068 and I spoke1696 unto413 you, rising up early7925 and speaking,1696 but ye heard8085 not;3808 and I called7121 you, but ye answered6030 not;3808

14  Therefore will I do6213 unto this house,1004 which834 is called7121 by5921 my name,8034 wherein834 ye859 trust,982 and unto the place4725 which834 I gave5414 to you and to your fathers,1 as834 I have done6213 to Shiloh.7887

15  And I will cast7993 you out of4480 5921 my sight,6440 as834 I have cast out7993 853 all3605 your brethren,251 853 even the whole3605 seed2233 of Ephraim.669

16  Therefore pray6419 not408 thou859 for1157 this2088 people,5971 neither408 lift up5375 cry7440 nor prayer8605 for1157 them, neither408 make intercession6293 to me: for3588 I will not369 hear8085 thee.

17  Seest7200 thou not369 what4100 they1992 do6213 in the cities5892 of Judah3063 and in the streets2351 of Jerusalem?3389

18  The children1121 gather3950 wood,6086 and the fathers1 kindle1197 853 the fire,784 and the women802 knead3888 their dough,1217 to make6213 cakes3561 to the queen4446 of heaven,8064 and to pour out5258 drink offerings5262 unto other312 gods,430 that4616 they may provoke me to anger.3707

19  Do they1992 provoke me to anger?3707 853 saith5002 the LORD:3068 do they not3808 provoke themselves to4616 the confusion1322 of their own faces?6440

20  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Behold,2009 mine anger639 and my fury2534 shall be poured out5413 upon413 this2088 place,4725 upon5921 man,120 and upon5921 beast,929 and upon5921 the trees6086 of the field,7704 and upon5921 the fruit6529 of the ground;127 and it shall burn,1197 and shall not3808 be quenched.3518

21  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 the God430 of Israel;3478 Put5595 your burnt offerings5930 unto5921 your sacrifices,2077 and eat398 flesh.1320

22  For3588 I spoke1696 not3808 unto 853 your fathers,1 nor3808 commanded6680 them in the day3117 that I brought3318 them out of the land4480 776 of Egypt,4714 concerning5921 1697 burnt offerings5930 or sacrifices:2077

23  But3588 518 853 this2088 thing1697 commanded6680 I them, saying,559 Obey8085 my voice,6963 and I will be1961 your God,430 and ye859 shall be1961 my people:5971 and walk1980 ye in all3605 the ways1870 that834 I have commanded6680 you, that4616 it may be well3190 unto you.

24  But they hearkened8085 not,3808 nor3808 inclined5186 853 their ear,241 but walked1980 in the counsels4156 and in the imagination8307 of their evil7451 heart,3820 and went1961 backward,268 and not3808 forward.6440

25  Since4480 the day3117 that834 your fathers1 came forth3318 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt4714 unto5704 this2088 day3117 I have even sent7971 unto413 you 853 all3605 my servants5650 the prophets,5030 daily3117 rising up early7925 and sending7971 them:

26  Yet they hearkened8085 not3808 unto413 me, nor3808 inclined5186 853 their ear,241 but hardened7185 853 their neck:6203 they did worse7489 than their fathers.4480 1

27  Therefore thou shalt speak1696 853 all3605 these428 words1697 unto413 them; but they will not3808 hearken8085 to413 thee: thou shalt also call7121 unto413 them; but they will not3808 answer6030 thee.

28  But thou shalt say559 unto413 them, This2088 is a nation1471 that834 obeyeth8085 not3808 the voice6963 of the LORD3068 their God,430 nor3808 receiveth3947 correction:4148 truth530 is perished,6 and is cut off3772 from their mouth.4480 6310

29  Cut off1494 thine hair,5145 O Jerusalem, and cast it away,7993 and take up5375 a lamentation7015 on5921 high places;8205 for3588 the LORD3068 hath rejected3988 and forsaken5203 853 the generation1755 of his wrath.5678

30  For3588 the children1121 of Judah3063 have done6213 evil7451 in my sight,5869 saith5002 the LORD:3068 they have set7760 their abominations8251 in the house1004 which834 is called7121 by5921 my name,8034 to pollute2930 it.

31  And they have built1129 the high places1116 of Tophet,8612 which834 is in the valley1516 of the son1121 of Hinnom,2011 to burn8313 853 their sons1121 and their daughters1323 in the fire;784 which834 I commanded6680 them not,3808 neither3808 came5927 it into5921 my heart.3820

32  Therefore,3651 behold,2009 the days3117 come,935 saith5002 the LORD,3068 that it shall no3808 more5750 be called559 Tophet,8612 nor the valley1516 of the son1121 of Hinnom,2011 but3588 518 the valley1516 of slaughter:2028 for they shall bury6912 in Tophet,8612 till there be no4480 369 place.4725

33  And the carcasses5038 of this2088 people5971 shall be1961 meat3978 for the fowls5775 of the heaven,8064 and for the beasts929 of the earth;776 and none369 shall frighten them away.2729

34  Then will I cause to cease7673 from the cities4480 5892 of Judah,3063 and from the streets4480 2351 of Jerusalem,3389 the voice6963 of mirth,8342 and the voice6963 of gladness,8057 the voice6963 of the bridegroom,2860 and the voice6963 of the bride:3618 for3588 the land776 shall be1961 desolate.2723

Jeremiah 8

1  At that1931 time,6256 saith5002 the LORD,3068 they shall bring out3318 853 the bones6106 of the kings4428 of Judah,3063 and the bones6106 of his princes,8269 and the bones6106 of the priests,3548 and the bones6106 of the prophets,5030 and the bones6106 of the inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem,3389 out of their graves:4480 6913

2  And they shall spread7849 them before the sun,8121 and the moon,3394 and all3605 the host6635 of heaven,8064 whom834 they have loved,157 and whom834 they have served,5647 and after310 whom834 they have walked,1980 and whom834 they have sought,1875 and whom834 they have worshiped:7812 they shall not3808 be gathered,622 nor3808 be buried;6912 they shall be1961 for dung1828 upon5921 the face6440 of the earth.127

3  And death4194 shall be chosen977 rather than life4480 2416 by all3605 the residue7611 of them that remain7604 of4480 this2063 evil7451 family,4940 which remain7604 in all3605 the places4725 whither834 8033 I have driven5080 them, saith5002 the LORD3068 of hosts.6635

4  Moreover thou shalt say559 unto413 them, Thus3541 saith559 the LORD;3068 Shall they fall,5307 and not3808 arise?6965 shall he turn away,7725 and not3808 return?7725

5  Why4069 then is this2088 people5971 of Jerusalem3389 slid back7725 by a perpetual5329 backsliding?4878 they hold fast2388 deceit,8649 they refuse3985 to return.7725

6  I hearkened7181 and heard,8085 but they spoke1696 not3808 aright:3651 no369 man376 repented5162 him of5921 his wickedness,7451 saying,559 What4100 have I done?6213 every one3605 turned7725 to his course,4794 as the horse5483 rusheth7857 into the battle.4421

7  Yea,1571 the stork2624 in the heaven8064 knoweth3045 her appointed times;4150 and the turtle8449 and the crane5483 and the swallow5693 observe8104 853 the time6256 of their coming;935 but my people5971 know3045 not3808 853 the judgment4941 of the LORD.3068

8  How349 do ye say,559 We587 are wise,2450 and the law8451 of the LORD3068 is with854 us? Lo,2009 certainly403 in vain8267 made6213 he it; the pen5842 of the scribes5608 is in vain.8267

9  The wise2450 men are ashamed,954 they are dismayed2865 and taken:3920 lo,2009 they have rejected3988 the word1697 of the LORD;3068 and what4100 wisdom2451 is in them?

10  Therefore3651 will I give5414 853 their wives802 unto others,312 and their fields7704 to them that shall inherit3423 them: for3588 every one3605 from the least4480 6996 even unto5704 the greatest1419 is given to covetousness,1214 1215 from the prophet4480 5030 even unto5704 the priest3548 every one3605 dealeth6213 falsely.8267

11  For they have healed7495 853 the hurt7667 of the daughter1323 of my people5971 slightly,7043 saying,559 Peace,7965 peace;7965 when there is no369 peace.7965

12  Were they ashamed954 when3588 they had committed6213 abomination?8441 nay,1571 they were not3808 at all ashamed,954 954 neither3808 could3045 they blush:3637 therefore3651 shall they fall5307 among them that fall:5307 in the time6256 of their visitation6486 they shall be cast down,3782 saith559 the LORD.3068

13  I will surely consume5486 5486 them, saith5002 the LORD:3068 there shall be no369 grapes6025 on the vine,1612 nor369 figs8384 on the fig tree,8384 and the leaf5929 shall fade;5034 and the things that I have given5414 them shall pass away5674 from them.

14  Why4100 5921 do we587 sit3427 still? assemble yourselves,622 and let us enter935 into413 the defensed4013 cities,5892 and let us be silent1826 there:8033 for3588 the LORD3068 our God430 hath put us to silence,1826 and given us water4325 of gall7219 to drink,8248 because3588 we have sinned2398 against the LORD.3068

15  We looked6960 for peace,7965 but no369 good2896 came; and for a time6256 of health,4832 and behold2009 trouble!1205

16  The snorting5170 of his horses5483 was heard8085 from Dan:4480 1835 the whole3605 land776 trembled7493 at the sound4480 6963 of the neighing4684 of his strong ones;47 for they are come,935 and have devoured398 the land,776 and all4393 that is in it; the city,5892 and those that dwell3427 therein.

17  For,3588 behold,2009 I will send7971 serpents,5175 cockatrices,6848 among you, which834 will not369 be charmed,3908 and they shall bite5391 you, saith5002 the LORD.3068

18  When I would comfort4010 myself against5921 sorrow,3015 my heart3820 is faint1742 in5921 me.

19  Behold2009 the voice6963 of the cry7775 of the daughter1323 of my people5971 because of them that dwell in a far4801 country:4480 776 Is not369 the LORD3068 in Zion?6726 is not369 her king4428 in her? Why4069 have they provoked me to anger3707 with their graven images,6456 and with strange5236 vanities?1892

20  The harvest7105 is past,5674 the summer7019 is ended,3615 and we587 are not3808 saved.3467

21  For5921 the hurt7667 of the daughter1323 of my people5971 am I hurt;7665 I am black;6937 astonishment8047 hath taken hold2388 on me.

22  Is there no369 balm6875 in Gilead;1568 is there no369 physician7495 there?8033 why4069 then3588 is not3808 the health724 of the daughter1323 of my people5971 recovered?5927

Jeremiah 9

1  Oh that4310 my head7218 were5414 waters,4325 and mine eyes5869 a fountain4726 of tears,1832 that I might weep1058 day3119 and night3915 for5921 the slain2491 of the daughter1323 of my people!5971

2  Oh that I had4310 5414 in the wilderness4057 a lodging place4411 of wayfaring men;732 that I might leave5800 853 my people,5971 and go1980 from4480 854 them! for3588 they be all3605 adulterers,5003 an assembly6116 of treacherous men.898

3  And they bend1869 853 their tongues3956 like their bow7198 for lies:8267 but they are not3808 valiant1396 for the truth530 upon the earth;776 for3588 they proceed3318 from evil4480 7451 to413 evil,7451 and they know3045 not3808 me, saith5002 the LORD.3068

4  Take ye heed8104 every one376 of his neighbor,4480 7453 and trust982 ye not408 in5921 any3605 brother:251 for3588 every3605 brother251 will utterly supplant,6117 6117 and every3605 neighbor7453 will walk1980 with slanders.7400

5  And they will deceive2048 every one376 his neighbor,7453 and will not3808 speak1696 the truth:571 they have taught3925 their tongue3956 to speak1696 lies,8267 and weary themselves3811 to commit iniquity.5753

6  Thine habitation3427 is in the midst8432 of deceit;4820 through deceit4820 they refuse3985 to know3045 me, saith5002 the LORD.3068

7  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 Behold,2009 I will melt6884 them, and try974 them; for3588 how349 shall I do6213 for4480 6440 the daughter1323 of my people?5971

8  Their tongue3956 is as an arrow2671 shot out;7819 it speaketh1696 deceit:4820 one speaketh1696 peaceably7965 to854 his neighbor7453 with his mouth,6310 but in heart7130 he layeth7760 his wait.696

9  Shall I not3808 visit6485 them for5921 these428 things? saith5002 the LORD:3068 shall not3808 my soul5315 be avenged5358 on such834 a nation1471 as this?2088

10  For5921 the mountains2022 will I take up5375 a weeping1065 and wailing,5092 and for5921 the habitations4999 of the wilderness4057 a lamentation,7015 because3588 they are burned up,3341 so that none4480 1097 376 can pass through5674 them; neither3808 can men hear8085 the voice6963 of the cattle;4735 both the fowl4480 5775 of the heavens8064 and the beast929 are fled;5074 they are gone.1980

11  And I will make5414 853 Jerusalem3389 heaps,1530 and a den4583 of dragons;8577 and I will make5414 the cities5892 of Judah3063 desolate,8077 without4480 1097 an inhabitant.3427

12  Who4310 is the wise2450 man,376 that may understand995 853 this?2063 and who is he to413 whom the mouth6310 of the LORD3068 hath spoken,1696 that he may declare5046 it, for5921 what4100 the land776 perisheth6 and is burned up3341 like a wilderness,4057 that none4480 1097 passeth through?5674

13  And the LORD3068 saith,559 Because5921 they have forsaken5800 853 my law8451 which834 I set5414 before6440 them, and have not3808 obeyed8085 my voice,6963 neither3808 walked1980 therein;

14  But have walked1980 after310 the imagination8307 of their own heart,3820 and after310 Baalim,1168 which834 their fathers1 taught3925 them:

15  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 the God430 of Israel;3478 Behold,2009 I will feed398 them, even 853 this2088 people,5971 with wormwood,3939 and give them water4325 of gall7219 to drink.8248

16  I will scatter6327 them also among the heathen,1471 whom834 neither3808 they1992 nor their fathers1 have known:3045 and I will send7971 853 a sword2719 after310 them, till5704 I have consumed3615 them.

17  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 Consider995 ye, and call7121 for the mourning women,6969 that they may come;935 and send7971 for413 cunning2450 women, that they may come:935

18  And let them make haste,4116 and take up5375 a wailing5092 for5921 us, that our eyes5869 may run down3381 with tears,1832 and our eyelids6079 gush out5140 with waters.4325

19  For3588 a voice6963 of wailing5092 is heard8085 out of Zion,4480 6726 How349 are we spoiled!7703 we are greatly3966 confounded,954 because3588 we have forsaken5800 the land,776 because3588 our dwellings4908 have cast us out.7993

20  Yet3588 hear8085 the word1697 of the LORD,3068 O ye women,802 and let your ear241 receive3947 the word1697 of his mouth,6310 and teach3925 your daughters1323 wailing,5092 and every one802 her neighbor7468 lamentation.7015

21  For3588 death4194 is come up5927 into our windows,2474 and is entered935 into our palaces,759 to cut off3772 the children5768 from without,4480 2351 and the young men970 from the streets.4480 7339

22  Speak,1696 Thus3541 saith5002 the LORD,3068 Even the carcasses5038 of men120 shall fall5307 as dung1828 upon5921 the open6440 field,7704 and as the handful5995 after4480 310 the harvest man,7114 and none369 shall gather622 them.

23  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Let not408 the wise2450 man glory1984 in his wisdom,2451 neither408 let the mighty1368 man glory1984 in his might,1369 let not408 the rich6223 man glory1984 in his riches:6239

24  But3588 518 let him that glorieth1984 glory1984 in this,2063 that he understandeth7919 and knoweth3045 me, that3588 I589 am the LORD3068 which exercise6213 lovingkindness,2617 judgment,4941 and righteousness,6666 in the earth:776 for3588 in these428 things I delight,2654 saith5002 the LORD.3068

25  Behold,2009 the days3117 come,935 saith5002 the LORD,3068 that I will punish6485 5921 all3605 them which are circumcised4135 with the uncircumcised;6190

26  Egypt,4714 and Judah,3063 and Edom,123 and the children1121 of Ammon,5983 and Moab,4124 and all3605 that are in the utmost7112 corners,6285 that dwell3427 in the wilderness:4057 for3588 all3605 these nations1471 are uncircumcised,6189 and all3605 the house1004 of Israel3478 are uncircumcised6189 in the heart.3820

Jeremiah 10

1  Hear8085 ye 853 the word1697 which834 the LORD3068 speaketh1696 unto5921 you, O house1004 of Israel:3478

2  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Learn3925 not408 the way1870 of the heathen,1471 and be not408 dismayed2865 at the signs4480 226 of heaven;8064 for3588 the heathen1471 are dismayed2865 at them.4480 1992

3  For3588 the customs2708 of the people5971 are vain:1892 for3588 one cutteth3772 a tree6086 out of the forest,4480 3293 the work4639 of the hands3027 of the workman,2796 with the axe.4621

4  They deck3302 it with silver3701 and with gold;2091 they fasten2388 it with nails4548 and with hammers,4717 that it move6328 not.3808

5  They1992 are upright4749 as the palm tree,8560 but speak1696 not:3808 they must needs be borne,5375 5375 because3588 they cannot3808 go.6805 Be not408 afraid3372 of4480 them; for3588 they cannot3808 do evil,7489 neither369 also1571 is it in854 them to do good.3190

6  Forasmuch as there is none4480 369 like unto thee,3644 O LORD;3068 thou859 art great,1419 and thy name8034 is great1419 in might.1369

7  Who4310 would not3808 fear3372 thee, O King4428 of nations?1471 for3588 to thee doth it appertain:2969 forasmuch3588 as among all3605 the wise2450 men of the nations,1471 and in all3605 their kingdoms,4438 there is none4480 369 like unto thee.3644

8  But they are altogether259 brutish1197 and foolish:3688 the stock6086 is a doctrine4148 of vanities.1892

9  Silver3701 spread into plates7554 is brought935 from Tarshish,4480 8659 and gold2091 from Uphaz,4480 210 the work4639 of the workman,2796 and of the hands3027 of the founder:6884 blue8504 and purple713 is their clothing:3830 they are all3605 the work4639 of cunning2450 men.

10  But the LORD3068 is the true571 God,430 he1931 is the living2416 God,430 and an everlasting5769 king:4428 at his wrath4480 7110 the earth776 shall tremble,7493 and the nations1471 shall not3808 be able to abide3557 his indignation.2195

11  Thus1836 shall ye say560 unto them, The gods426 that1768 have not3809 made5648 the heavens8065 and the earth,778 even they shall perish7 from the earth,4481 772 and from4481 under8460 these429 heavens.8065

12  He hath made6213 the earth776 by his power,3581 he hath established3559 the world8398 by his wisdom,2451 and hath stretched out5186 the heavens8064 by his discretion.8394

13  When he uttereth5414 his voice,6963 there is a multitude1995 of waters4325 in the heavens,8064 and he causeth the vapors5387 to ascend5927 from the ends4480 7097 of the earth;776 he maketh6213 lightnings1300 with rain,4306 and bringeth forth3318 the wind7307 out of his treasures.4480 214

14  Every3605 man120 is brutish1197 in his knowledge:4480 1847 every3605 founder6884 is confounded3001 by the graven image:4480 6459 for3588 his molten image5262 is falsehood,8267 and there is no3808 breath7307 in them.

15  They1992 are vanity,1892 and the work4639 of errors:8595 in the time6256 of their visitation6486 they shall perish.6

16  The portion2506 of Jacob3290 is not3808 like them:428 for3588 he1931 is the former3335 of all3605 things; and Israel3478 is the rod7626 of his inheritance:5159 The LORD3068 of hosts6635 is his name.8034

17  Gather up622 thy wares3666 out of the land,4480 776 O inhabitant3427 of the fortress.4693

18  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Behold,2009 I will sling out7049 853 the inhabitants3427 of the land776 at this2063 once,6471 and will distress6887 them, that4616 they may find4672 it so.

19  Woe188 is me for5921 my hurt!7667 my wound4347 is grievous:2470 but I589 said,559 Truly389 this2088 is a grief,2483 and I must bear5375 it.

20  My tabernacle168 is spoiled,7703 and all3605 my cords4340 are broken:5423 my children1121 are gone forth3318 of me, and they are not:369 there is none369 to stretch forth5186 my tent168 any more,5750 and to set up6965 my curtains.3407

21  For3588 the pastors7462 are become brutish,1197 and have not3808 sought1875 the LORD:3068 therefore5921 3651 they shall not3808 prosper,7919 and all3605 their flocks4830 shall be scattered.6327

22  Behold,2009 the noise6963 of the bruit8052 is come,935 and a great1419 commotion7494 out of the north country,4480 776 6828 to make7760 853 the cities5892 of Judah3063 desolate,8077 and a den4583 of dragons.8577

23  O LORD,3068 I know3045 that3588 the way1870 of man120 is not3808 in himself: it is not3808 in man376 that walketh1980 to direct3559 853 his steps.6806

24  O LORD,3068 correct3256 me, but with389 judgment;4941 not408 in thine anger,639 lest6435 thou bring me to nothing.4591

25  Pour out8210 thy fury2534 upon5921 the heathen1471 that834 know3045 thee not,3808 and upon5921 the families4940 that834 call7121 not3808 on thy name:8034 for3588 they have eaten up398 853 Jacob,3290 and devoured398 him, and consumed3615 him, and have made his habitation5116 desolate.8074

Jeremiah 11

1  The word1697 that834 came1961 to413 Jeremiah3414 from4480 854 the LORD,3068 saying,559

2  Hear8085 ye 853 the words1697 of this2063 covenant,1285 and speak1696 unto413 the men376 of Judah,3063 and to5921 the inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem;3389

3  And say559 thou unto413 them, Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 God430 of Israel;3478 Cursed779 be the man376 that834 obeyeth8085 not3808 853 the words1697 of this2063 covenant,1285

4  Which834 I commanded6680 853 your fathers1 in the day3117 that I brought them forth3318 853 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt,4714 from the iron1270 furnace,4480 3564 saying,559 Obey8085 my voice,6963 and do6213 them, according to all3605 which834 I command6680 you: so shall ye be1961 my people,5971 and I595 will be1961 your God:430

5  That4616 I may perform6965 853 the oath7621 which834 I have sworn7650 unto your fathers,1 to give5414 them a land776 flowing2100 with milk2461 and honey,1706 as it is this2088 day.3117 Then answered6030 I, and said,559 So be it,543 O LORD.3068

6  Then the LORD3068 said559 unto413 me, Proclaim7121 853 all3605 these428 words1697 in the cities5892 of Judah,3063 and in the streets2351 of Jerusalem,3389 saying,559 Hear8085 ye 853 the words1697 of this2063 covenant,1285 and do6213 them.

7  For3588 I earnestly protested5749 5749 unto your fathers1 in the day3117 that I brought them up5927 853 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt,4714 even unto5704 this2088 day,3117 rising early7925 and protesting,5749 saying,559 Obey8085 my voice.6963

8  Yet they obeyed8085 not,3808 nor3808 inclined5186 853 their ear,241 but walked1980 every one376 in the imagination8307 of their evil7451 heart:3820 therefore I will bring935 upon5921 them 853 all3605 the words1697 of this2063 covenant,1285 which834 I commanded6680 them to do;6213 but they did6213 them not.3808

9  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 me, A conspiracy7195 is found4672 among the men376 of Judah,3063 and among the inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem.3389

10  They are turned back7725 to5921 the iniquities5771 of their forefathers,7223 1 which834 refused3985 to hear8085 853 my words;1697 and they1992 went1980 after310 other312 gods430 to serve5647 them: the house1004 of Israel3478 and the house1004 of Judah3063 have broken6565 853 my covenant1285 which834 I made3772 with854 their fathers.1

11  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Behold,2009 I will bring935 evil7451 upon413 them, which834 they shall not3808 be able3201 to escape;3318 4480 and though they shall cry2199 unto413 me, I will not3808 hearken8085 unto413 them.

12  Then shall the cities5892 of Judah3063 and inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem3389 go,1980 and cry2199 unto413 the gods430 unto whom834 they1992 offer incense:6999 but they shall not3808 save them at all3467 3467 in the time6256 of their trouble.7451

13  For3588 according to the number4557 of thy cities5892 were1961 thy gods,430 O Judah;3063 and according to the number4557 of the streets2351 of Jerusalem3389 have ye set up7760 altars4196 to that shameful thing,1322 even altars4196 to burn incense6999 unto Baal.1168

14  Therefore pray6419 not408 thou859 for1157 this2088 people,5971 neither408 lift up5375 a cry7440 or prayer8605 for1157 them: for3588 I589 will not369 hear8085 them in the time6256 that they cry7121 unto413 me for1157 their trouble.7451

15  What4100 hath my beloved3039 to do in mine house,1004 seeing she hath wrought6213 lewdness4209 with many,7227 and the holy6944 flesh1320 is passed5674 from4480 5921 thee? when3588 thou doest evil,7451 then227 thou rejoicest.5937

16  The LORD3068 called7121 thy name,8034 A green7488 olive tree,2132 fair,3303 and of goodly8389 fruit:6529 with the noise6963 of a great1419 tumult1999 he hath kindled3341 fire784 upon5921 it, and the branches1808 of it are broken.7489

17  For the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 that planted5193 thee, hath pronounced1696 evil7451 against5921 thee, for1588 the evil7451 of the house1004 of Israel3478 and of the house1004 of Judah,3063 which834 they have done6213 against themselves to provoke me to anger3707 in offering incense6999 unto Baal.1168

18  And the LORD3068 hath given me knowledge3045 of it, and I know3045 it: then227 thou showedst7200 me their doings.4611

19  But I589 was like a lamb3532 or an ox441 that is brought2986 to the slaughter;2873 and I knew3045 not3808 that3588 they had devised2803 devices4284 against5921 me, saying, Let us destroy7843 the tree6086 with the fruit3899 thereof, and let us cut him off3772 from the land4480 776 of the living,2416 that his name8034 may be no3808 more5750 remembered.2142

20  But, O LORD3068 of hosts,6635 that judgest8199 righteously,6664 that triest974 the reins3629 and the heart,3820 let me see7200 thy vengeance5360 on4480 them: for3588 unto413 thee have I revealed1540 853 my cause.7379

21  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of5921 the men376 of Anathoth,6068 that seek1245 853 thy life,5315 saying,559 Prophesy5012 not3808 in the name8034 of the LORD,3068 that thou die4191 not3808 by our hand:3027

22  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 Behold,2009 I will punish6485 5921 them: the young men970 shall die4191 by the sword;2719 their sons1121 and their daughters1323 shall die4191 by famine:7458

23  And there shall be1961 no3808 remnant7611 of them: for3588 I will bring935 evil7451 upon413 the men376 of Anathoth,6068 even the year8141 of their visitation.6486

Jeremiah 12

1  Righteous6662 art thou,859 O LORD,3068 when3588 I plead7378 with413 thee: yet389 let me talk1696 with854 thee of thy judgments:4941 Wherefore4069 doth the way1870 of the wicked7563 prosper?6743 wherefore are all3605 they happy7951 that deal very treacherously?898 899

2  Thou hast planted5193 them, yea,1571 they have taken root:8327 they grow,1980 yea,1571 they bring forth6213 fruit:6529 thou859 art near7138 in their mouth,6310 and far7350 from their reins.4480 3629

3  But thou,859 O LORD,3068 knowest3045 me: thou hast seen7200 me, and tried974 mine heart3820 toward854 thee: pull them out5423 like sheep6629 for the slaughter,2878 and prepare6942 them for the day3117 of slaughter.2028

4  How long5704 4970 shall the land776 mourn,56 and the herbs6212 of every3605 field7704 wither,3001 for the wickedness4480 7451 of them that dwell3427 therein? the beasts929 are consumed,5595 and the birds;5775 because3588 they said,559 He shall not3808 see7200 853 our last end.319

5  If3588 thou hast run7323 with854 the footmen,7273 and they have wearied3811 thee, then how349 canst thou contend8474 with854 horses?5483 and if in the land776 of peace,7965 wherein thou859 trustedst,982 they wearied thee, then how349 wilt thou do6213 in the swelling1347 of Jordan?3383

6  For3588 even1571 thy brethren,251 and the house1004 of thy father,1 even1571 they1992 have dealt treacherously898 with thee; yea,1571 they1992 have called7121 a multitude4392 after310 thee: believe539 them not,408 though3588 they speak1696 fair words2896 unto413 thee.

7  I have forsaken5800 853 mine house,1004 I have left5203 853 mine heritage;5159 I have given5414 853 the dearly beloved3039 of my soul5315 into the hand3709 of her enemies.341

8  Mine heritage5159 is1961 unto me as a lion738 in the forest;3293 it crieth out5414 6963 against5921 me: therefore5921 3651 have I hated8130 it.

9  Mine heritage5159 is unto me as a speckled6641 bird,5861 the birds5861 round about5439 are against5921 her; come1980 ye, assemble622 all3605 the beasts2416 of the field,7704 come857 to devour.402

10  Many7227 pastors7462 have destroyed7843 my vineyard,3754 they have trodden my portion under foot,947 853 2513 they have made5414 853 my pleasant2532 portion2513 a desolate8077 wilderness.4057

11  They have made7760 it desolate,8077 and being desolate8076 it mourneth56 unto5921 me; the whole3605 land776 is made6213 desolate,8074 because3588 no369 man376 layeth7760 it to5921 heart.3820

12  The spoilers7703 are come935 upon5921 all3605 high places8205 through the wilderness:4057 for3588 the sword2719 of the LORD3068 shall devour398 from the one end4480 7097 of the land776 even to5704 the other end7097 of the land:776 no369 3605 flesh1320 shall have peace.7965

13  They have sown2232 wheat,2406 but shall reap7114 thorns:6975 they have put themselves to pain,2470 but shall not3808 profit:3276 and they shall be ashamed954 of your revenues4480 8393 because of the fierce4480 2740 anger639 of the LORD.3068

14  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 against5921 all3605 mine evil7451 neighbors,7934 that touch5060 the inheritance5159 which834 I have caused 853 my people5971 853 Israel3478 to inherit;5157 Behold,2009 I will pluck them out5428 of4480 5921 their land,127 and pluck out5428 the house1004 of Judah3063 from among4480 8432 them.

15  And it shall come to pass,1961 after that310 I have plucked them out5428 853 I will return,7725 and have compassion7355 on them, and will bring them again,7725 every man376 to his heritage,5159 and every man376 to his land.776

16  And it shall come to pass,1961 if518 they will diligently learn3925 3925 853 the ways1870 of my people,5971 to swear7650 by my name,8034 The LORD3068 liveth;2416 as834 they taught3925 853 my people5971 to swear7650 by Baal;1168 then shall they be built1129 in the midst8432 of my people.5971

17  But if518 they will not3808 obey,8085 I will utterly pluck up5428 5428 and destroy6 853 that1931 nation,1471 saith5002 the LORD.3068

Jeremiah 13

1  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 unto413 me, Go1980 and get7069 thee a linen6593 girdle,232 and put7760 it upon5921 thy loins,4975 and put935 it not3808 in water.4325

2  So I got7069 853 a girdle232 according to the word1697 of the LORD,3068 and put7760 it on5921 my loins.4975

3  And the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me the second time,8145 saying,559

4  Take3947 853 the girdle232 that834 thou hast got,7069 which834 is upon5921 thy loins,4975 and arise,6965 go1980 to Euphrates,6578 and hide2934 it there8033 in a hole5357 of the rock.5553

5  So I went,1980 and hid2934 it by Euphrates,6578 as834 the LORD3068 commanded6680 me.

6  And it came to pass1961 after4480 7093 many7227 days,3117 that the LORD3068 said559 unto413 me, Arise,6965 go1980 to Euphrates,6578 and take3947 853 the girdle232 from thence,4480 8033 which834 I commanded6680 thee to hide2934 there.8033

7  Then I went1980 to Euphrates,6578 and digged,2658 and took3947 853 the girdle232 from4480 the place4725 where834 8033 I had hid2934 it: and, behold,2009 the girdle232 was marred,7843 it was profitable6743 for nothing.3808 3605

8  Then the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559

9  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 After this manner3602 will I mar7843 the pride1347 of Judah,3063 and the great7227 pride1347 of Jerusalem.3389

10  This2088 evil7451 people,5971 which refuse3987 to hear8085 853 my words,1697 which walk1980 in the imagination8307 of their heart,3820 and walk1980 after310 other312 gods,430 to serve5647 them, and to worship7812 them, shall even be1961 as this2088 girdle,232 which834 is good6743 for nothing.3808 3605

11  For3588 as834 the girdle232 cleaveth1692 to413 the loins4975 of a man,376 so3651 have I caused to cleave1692 unto413 me 853 the whole3605 house1004 of Israel3478 and the whole3605 house1004 of Judah,3063 saith5002 the LORD;3068 that they might be1961 unto me for a people,5971 and for a name,8034 and for a praise,8416 and for a glory:8597 but they would not3808 hear.8085

12  Therefore thou shalt speak559 unto413 them 853 this2088 word;1697 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 God430 of Israel,3478 Every3605 bottle5035 shall be filled4390 with wine:3196 and they shall say559 unto413 thee, Do we not3808 certainly know3045 3045 that3588 every3605 bottle5035 shall be filled4390 with wine?3196

13  Then shalt thou say559 unto413 them, Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Behold,2009 I will fill4390 853 all3605 the inhabitants3427 of this2063 land,776 even the kings4428 that sit3427 upon5921 David's1732 throne,3678 and the priests,3548 and the prophets,5030 and all3605 the inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem,3389 with drunkenness.7943

14  And I will dash5310 them one376 against413 another,251 even the fathers1 and the sons1121 together,3162 saith5002 the LORD:3068 I will not3808 pity,2550 nor3808 spare,2347 nor3808 have mercy,7355 but destroy4480 7843 them.

15  Hear8085 ye, and give ear;238 be not408 proud:1361 for3588 the LORD3068 hath spoken.1696

16  Give5414 glory3519 to the LORD3068 your God,430 before2962 he cause darkness,2821 and before2962 your feet7272 stumble5062 upon5921 the dark5399 mountains,2022 and, while ye look6960 for light,216 he turn7760 it into the shadow of death,6757 and make7896 it gross darkness.6205

17  But if518 ye will not3808 hear8085 it, my soul5315 shall weep1058 in secret places4565 for4480 6440 your pride;1466 and mine eye5869 shall weep sore,1830 1830 and run down3381 with tears,1832 because3588 the LORD's3068 flock5739 is carried away captive.7617

18  Say559 unto the king4428 and to the queen,1377 Humble yourselves,8213 sit down:3427 for3588 your principalities4761 shall come down,3381 even the crown5850 of your glory.8597

19  The cities5892 of the south5045 shall be shut up,5462 and none369 shall open6605 them: Judah3063 shall be carried away captive1540 all3605 of it, it shall be wholly7965 carried away captive.1540

20  Lift up5375 your eyes,5869 and behold7200 them that come935 from the north:4480 6828 where346 is the flock5739 that was given5414 thee, thy beautiful8597 flock?6629

21  What4100 wilt thou say559 when3588 he shall punish6485 5921 thee? for thou859 hast taught3925 them to be captains,441 and as chief7218 over5921 thee: shall not3808 sorrows2256 take270 thee, as3644 a woman802 in travail?3205

22  And if3588 thou say559 in thine heart,3824 Wherefore4069 come7122 these things428 upon me? For the greatness7230 of thine iniquity5771 are thy skirts7757 discovered,1540 and thy heels6119 made bare.2554

23  Can the Ethiopian3569 change2015 his skin,5785 or the leopard5246 his spots?2272 then may3201 ye859 also1571 do good,3190 that are accustomed3928 to do evil.7489

24  Therefore will I scatter6327 them as the stubble7179 that passeth away5674 by the wind7307 of the wilderness.4057

25  This2088 is thy lot,1486 the portion4490 of thy measures4055 from4480 854 me, saith5002 the LORD;3068 because834 thou hast forgotten7911 me, and trusted982 in falsehood.8267

26  Therefore1571 will I589 discover2834 thy skirts7757 upon5921 thy face,6440 that thy shame7036 may appear.7200

27  I have seen7200 thine adulteries,5004 and thy neighings,4684 the lewdness2154 of thy whoredom,2184 and thine abominations8251 on5921 the hills1389 in the fields.7704 Woe188 unto thee, O Jerusalem!3389 wilt thou not3808 be made clean?2891 when310 shall it once5750 be?

Jeremiah 14

1  The word1697 of the LORD3068 that834 came1961 to413 Jeremiah3414 concerning5921 1697 the dearth.1226

2  Judah3063 mourneth,56 and the gates8179 thereof languish;535 they are black6937 unto the ground;776 and the cry6682 of Jerusalem3389 is gone up.5927

3  And their nobles117 have sent7971 their little ones6810 to the waters:4325 they came935 to5921 the pits,1356 and found4672 no3808 water;4325 they returned7725 with their vessels3627 empty;7387 they were ashamed954 and confounded,3637 and covered2645 their heads.7218

4  Because5668 the ground127 is chapped,2865 for3588 there was1961 no3808 rain1653 in the earth,776 the plowmen406 were ashamed,954 they covered2645 their heads.7218

5  Yea,1571 the hind365 also calved3205 in the field,7704 and forsook5800 it, because3588 there was1961 no3808 grass.1877

6  And the wild asses6501 did stand5975 in5921 the high places,8205 they snuffed up7602 the wind7307 like dragons;8577 their eyes5869 did fail,3615 because3588 there was no369 grass.6212

7  O LORD,3068 though518 our iniquities5771 testify6030 against us, do6213 thou it for thy name's sake:4616 8034 for3588 our backslidings4878 are many;7231 we have sinned2398 against thee.

8  O the hope4723 of Israel,3478 the savior3467 thereof in time6256 of trouble,6869 why4100 shouldest thou be1961 as a stranger1616 in the land,776 and as a wayfaring man732 that turneth aside5186 to tarry3885 for a night?

9  Why4100 shouldest thou be1961 as a man376 astonished,1724 as a mighty man1368 that cannot3201 3808 save?3467 yet thou,859 O LORD,3068 art in the midst7130 of us, and we are called7121 by thy name;8034 leave5117 us not.408

10  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 unto this2088 people,5971 Thus3651 have they loved157 to wander,5128 they have not3808 refrained2820 their feet,7272 therefore the LORD3068 doth not3808 accept7521 them; he will now6258 remember2142 their iniquity,5771 and visit6485 their sins.2403

11  Then said559 the LORD3068 unto413 me, Pray6419 not408 for1157 this2088 people5971 for their good.2896

12  When3588 they fast,6684 I will not369 hear8085 413 their cry;7440 and when3588 they offer5927 burnt offering5930 and an oblation,4503 I will not369 accept7521 them: but3588 I595 will consume3615 them by the sword,2719 and by the famine,7458 and by the pestilence.1698

13  Then said559 I, Ah,162 Lord136 GOD!3069 behold,2009 the prophets5030 say559 unto them, Ye shall not3808 see7200 the sword,2719 neither3808 shall ye have1961 famine;7458 but3588 I will give5414 you assured571 peace7965 in this2088 place.4725

14  Then the LORD3068 said559 unto413 me, The prophets5030 prophesy5012 lies8267 in my name:8034 I sent7971 them not,3808 neither3808 have I commanded6680 them, neither3808 spoke1696 unto413 them: they1992 prophesy5012 unto you a false8267 vision2377 and divination,7081 and a thing of naught,434 and the deceit8649 of their heart.3820

15  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 concerning5921 the prophets5030 that prophesy5012 in my name,8034 and I589 sent7971 them not,3808 yet they1992 say,559 Sword2719 and famine7458 shall not3808 be1961 in this2063 land;776 By sword2719 and famine7458 shall those1992 prophets5030 be consumed.8552

16  And the people5971 to whom834 they1992 prophesy5012 shall be1961 cast out7993 in the streets2351 of Jerusalem3389 because4480 6440 of the famine7458 and the sword;2719 and they shall have none369 to bury6912 them,1992 them,1992 their wives,802 nor their sons,1121 nor their daughters:1323 for I will pour8210 853 their wickedness7451 upon5921 them.

17  Therefore thou shalt say559 853 this2088 word1697 unto413 them; Let mine eyes5869 run down3381 with tears1832 night3915 and day,3119 and let them not408 cease:1820 for3588 the virgin1330 daughter1323 of my people5971 is broken7665 with a great1419 breach,7667 with a very3966 grievous2470 blow.4347

18  If518 I go forth3318 into the field,7704 then behold2009 the slain2491 with the sword!2719 and if518 I enter935 into the city,5892 then behold2009 them that are sick8463 with famine!7458 yea,3588 both1571 the prophet5030 and1571 the priest3548 go about5503 into413 a land776 that they know3045 not.3808

19  Hast thou utterly rejected3988 3988 853 Judah?3063 hath thy soul5315 loathed1602 Zion?6726 why4069 hast thou smitten5221 us, and there is no369 healing4832 for us? we looked6960 for peace,7965 and there is no369 good;2896 and for the time6256 of healing,4832 and behold2009 trouble!1205

20  We acknowledge,3045 O LORD,3068 our wickedness,7562 and the iniquity5771 of our fathers:1 for3588 we have sinned2398 against thee.

21  Do not408 abhor5006 us, for thy name's sake,4616 8034 do not408 disgrace5034 the throne3678 of thy glory:3519 remember,2142 break6565 not408 thy covenant1285 with854 us.

22  Are there3426 any among the vanities1892 of the Gentiles1471 that can cause rain?1652 or518 can the heavens8064 give5414 showers?7241 art not3808 thou859 he,1931 O LORD3068 our God?430 therefore we will wait6960 upon thee: for3588 thou859 hast made6213 853 all3605 these428 things.

Jeremiah 15

1  Then said559 the LORD3068 unto413 me, Though518 Moses4872 and Samuel8050 stood5975 before6440 me, yet my mind5315 could not369 be toward413 this2088 people:5971 cast7971 them out of4480 5921 my sight,6440 and let them go forth.3318

2  And it shall come to pass,1961 if3588 they say559 unto413 thee, Whither575 shall we go forth?3318 then thou shalt tell559 413 them, Thus3541 saith559 the LORD;3068 Such as834 are for death,4194 to death;4194 and such as834 are for the sword,2719 to the sword;2719 and such as834 are for the famine,7458 to the famine;7458 and such as834 are for the captivity,7628 to the captivity.7628

3  And I will appoint6485 over5921 them four702 kinds,4940 saith5002 the LORD:3068 853 the sword2719 to slay,2026 and the dogs3611 to tear,5498 and the fowls5775 of the heaven,8064 and the beasts929 of the earth,776 to devour398 and destroy.7843

4  And I will cause5414 them to be removed2189 into all3605 kingdoms4467 of the earth,776 because of1558 Manasseh4519 the son1121 of Hezekiah3169 king4428 of Judah,3063 for5921 that which834 he did6213 in Jerusalem.3389

5  For3588 who4310 shall have pity2550 upon5921 thee, O Jerusalem?3389 or who4310 shall bemoan5110 thee? or who4310 shall go aside5493 to ask7592 how thou doest?7965

6  Thou859 hast forsaken5203 me, saith5002 the LORD,3068 thou art gone1980 backward:268 therefore will I stretch out5186 853 my hand3027 against5921 thee, and destroy7843 thee; I am weary3811 with repenting.5162

7  And I will fan2219 them with a fan4214 in the gates8179 of the land;776 I will bereave7921 them of children, I will destroy6 853 my people,5971 since they return7725 not3808 from their ways.4480 1870

8  Their widows490 are increased6105 to me above the sand4480 2344 of the seas:3220 I have brought935 upon them against5921 the mother517 of the young men970 a spoiler7703 at noonday:6672 I have caused him to fall5307 upon5921 it suddenly,6597 and terrors928 upon the city.5892

9  She that hath borne3205 seven7651 languisheth:535 she hath given up5301 the ghost;5315 her sun8121 is gone down935 while5750 it was yet day:3119 she hath been ashamed954 and confounded:2659 and the residue7611 of them will I deliver5414 to the sword2719 before6440 their enemies,341 saith5002 the LORD.3068

10  Woe188 is me, my mother,517 that3588 thou hast borne3205 me a man376 of strife7379 and a man376 of contention4066 to the whole3605 earth!776 I have neither3808 lent on usury,5383 nor3808 men have lent to me on usury;5383 yet every one3605 of them doth curse7043 me.

11  The LORD3068 said,559 Verily518 3808 it shall be well2896 with thy remnant;7611 verily518 3808 I will cause 853 the enemy341 to entreat6293 thee well in the time6256 of evil7451 and in the time6256 of affliction.6869

12  Shall iron1270 break7489 the northern4480 6828 iron1270 and the steel?5178

13  Thy substance2428 and thy treasures214 will I give5414 to the spoil957 without3808 price,4242 and that for all3605 thy sins,2403 even in all3605 thy borders.1366

14  And I will make thee to pass5674 with854 thine enemies341 into a land776 which thou knowest3045 not:3808 for3588 a fire784 is kindled6919 in mine anger,639 which shall burn3344 upon5921 you.

15  O LORD,3068 thou859 knowest:3045 remember2142 me, and visit6485 me, and revenge5358 me of my persecutors;4480 7291 take3947 me not408 away in thy longsuffering:750 639 know3045 that for5921 thy sake I have suffered5375 rebuke.2781

16  Thy words1697 were found,4672 and I did eat398 them; and thy word1697 was1961 unto me the joy8342 and rejoicing8057 of mine heart:3824 for3588 I am called7121 by5921 thy name,8034 O LORD3068 God430 of hosts.6635

17  I sat3427 not3808 in the assembly5475 of the mockers,7832 nor rejoiced;5937 I sat3427 alone910 because4480 6440 of thy hand:3027 for3588 thou hast filled4390 me with indignation.2195

18  Why4100 is1961 my pain3511 perpetual,5331 and my wound4347 incurable,605 which refuseth3985 to be healed?7495 wilt thou be altogether1961 1961 unto me as3644 a liar,391 and as waters4325 that fail?3808 539

19  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 If518 thou return,7725 then will I bring thee again,7725 and thou shalt stand5975 before6440 me: and if518 thou take forth3318 the precious3368 from the vile,4480 2151 thou shalt be1961 as my mouth:6310 let them return7725 unto413 thee; but return7725 not3808 thou859 unto413 them.

20  And I will make5414 thee unto this2088 people5971 a fenced1219 brazen5178 wall:2346 and they shall fight3898 against413 thee, but they shall not3808 prevail3201 against thee: for3588 I589 am with854 thee to save3467 thee and to deliver5337 thee, saith5002 the LORD.3068

21  And I will deliver5337 thee out of the hand4480 3027 of the wicked,7451 and I will redeem6299 thee out of the hand4480 3709 of the terrible.6184

Jeremiah 16

1  The word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 also unto413 me, saying,559

2  Thou shalt not3808 take3947 thee a wife,802 neither3808 shalt thou have1961 sons1121 or daughters1323 in this2088 place.4725

3  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 concerning5921 the sons1121 and concerning5921 the daughters1323 that are born3209 in this2088 place,4725 and concerning5921 their mothers517 that bore3205 them, and concerning5921 their fathers1 that begot3205 them in this2088 land;776

4  They shall die4191 of grievous8463 deaths;4463 they shall not3808 be lamented;5594 neither3808 shall they be buried;6912 but they shall be as dung1828 upon5921 the face6440 of the earth:127 and they shall be1961 consumed3615 by the sword,2719 and by famine;7458 and their carcasses5038 shall be meat3978 for the fowls5775 of heaven,8064 and for the beasts929 of the earth.776

5  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Enter935 not408 into the house1004 of mourning,4798 neither408 go1980 to lament5594 nor408 bemoan5110 them: for3588 I have taken away622 853 my peace7965 from4480 854 this2088 people,5971 saith5002 the LORD,3068 even 853 lovingkindness2617 and mercies.7356

6  Both the great1419 and the small6996 shall die4191 in this2063 land:776 they shall not3808 be buried,6912 neither3808 shall men lament5594 for them: nor3808 cut themselves,1413 nor3808 make themselves bald7139 for them:

7  Neither3808 shall men tear6536 themselves for them in5921 mourning,60 to comfort5162 them for5921 the dead;4191 neither3808 shall men give them the cup3563 of consolation8575 to drink8248 for5921 their father1 or for5921 their mother.517

8  Thou shalt not3808 also go935 into the house1004 of feasting,4960 to sit3427 with854 them to eat398 and to drink.8354

9  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 the God430 of Israel;3478 Behold,2009 I will cause to cease7673 out of4480 this2088 place4725 in your eyes,5869 and in your days,3117 the voice6963 of mirth,8342 and the voice6963 of gladness,8057 the voice6963 of the bridegroom,2860 and the voice6963 of the bride.3618

10  And it shall come to pass,1961 when3588 thou shalt show5046 this2088 people5971 853 all3605 these428 words,1697 and they shall say559 unto413 thee, Wherefore5921 4100 hath the LORD3068 pronounced1696 853 all3605 this2063 great1419 evil7451 against5921 us? or what4100 is our iniquity?5771 or what4100 is our sin2403 that834 we have committed2398 against the LORD3068 our God?430

11  Then shalt thou say559 unto413 them, Because5921 834 your fathers1 have forsaken5800 me, saith5002 the LORD,3068 and have walked1980 after310 other312 gods,430 and have served5647 them, and have worshiped7812 them, and have forsaken5800 me, and have not3808 kept8104 my law;8451

12  And ye859 have done6213 worse7489 than your fathers;4480 1 for, behold,2009 ye walk1980 every one376 after310 the imagination8307 of his evil7451 heart,3820 that they may not1115 hearken8085 unto413 me:

13  Therefore will I cast2904 you out of4480 5921 this2063 land776 into5921 a land776 that834 ye know3045 not,3808 neither ye859 nor your fathers;1 and there8033 shall ye serve5647 853 other312 gods430 day3119 and night;3915 where834 I will not3808 show5414 you favor.2594

14  Therefore,3651 behold,2009 the days3117 come,935 saith5002 the LORD,3068 that it shall no3808 more5750 be said,559 The LORD3068 liveth,2416 that834 brought up5927 853 the children1121 of Israel3478 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt;4714

15  But,3588 518 The LORD3068 liveth,2416 that834 brought up5927 853 the children1121 of Israel3478 from the land4480 776 of the north,6828 and from all4480 3605 the lands776 whither834 8033 he had driven5080 them: and I will bring them again7725 into5921 their land127 that834 I gave5414 unto their fathers.1

16  Behold,2009 I will send7971 for many7227 fishers,1771 saith5002 the LORD,3068 and they shall fish1770 them; and after310 3651 will I send7971 for many7227 hunters,6719 and they shall hunt6679 them from4480 5921 every3605 mountain,2022 and from4480 5921 every3605 hill,1389 and out of the holes4480 5357 of the rocks.5553

17  For3588 mine eyes5869 are upon5921 all3605 their ways:1870 they are not3808 hid5641 from my face,4480 6440 neither3808 is their iniquity5771 hid6845 from4480 5048 mine eyes.5869

18  And first7223 I will recompense7999 their iniquity5771 and their sin2403 double;4932 because5921 they have defiled2490 853 my land,776 they have filled4390 853 mine inheritance5159 with the carcasses5038 of their detestable8251 and abominable things.8441

19  O LORD,3068 my strength,5797 and my fortress,4581 and my refuge4498 in the day3117 of affliction,6869 the Gentiles1471 shall come935 unto413 thee from the ends4480 657 of the earth,776 and shall say,559 Surely389 our fathers1 have inherited5157 lies,8267 vanity,1892 and things wherein there is no369 profit.3276

20  Shall a man120 make6213 gods430 unto himself, and they1992 are no3808 gods?430

21  Therefore,3651 behold,2009 I will this2063 once6471 cause them to know,3045 I will cause them to know3045 853 mine hand3027 and my might;1369 and they shall know3045 that3588 my name8034 is The LORD.3068

Jeremiah 17

1  The sin2403 of Judah3063 is written3789 with a pen5842 of iron,1270 and with the point6856 of a diamond:8068 it is graven2790 upon5921 the table3871 of their heart,3820 and upon the horns7161 of your altars;4196

2  Whilst their children1121 remember2142 their altars4196 and their groves842 by5921 the green7488 trees6086 upon5921 the high1364 hills.1389

3  O my mountain2042 in the field,7704 I will give5414 thy substance2428 and all3605 thy treasures214 to the spoil,957 and thy high places1116 for sin,2403 throughout all3605 thy borders.1366

4  And thou, even thyself, shalt discontinue8058 from thine heritage4480 5159 that834 I gave5414 thee; and I will cause thee to serve5647 853 thine enemies341 in the land776 which834 thou knowest3045 not:3808 for3588 ye have kindled6919 a fire784 in mine anger,639 which shall burn3344 forever.5704 5769

5  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD;3068 Cursed779 be the man1397 that834 trusteth982 in man,120 and maketh7760 flesh1320 his arm,2220 and whose heart3820 departeth5493 from4480 the LORD.3068

6  For he shall be1961 like the heath6176 in the desert,6160 and shall not3808 see7200 when3588 good2896 cometh;935 but shall inhabit7931 the parched places2788 in the wilderness,4057 in a salt4420 land776 and not3808 inhabited.3427

7  Blessed1288 is the man1397 that834 trusteth982 in the LORD,3068 and whose hope4009 the LORD3068 is.1961

8  For he shall be1961 as a tree6086 planted8362 by5921 the waters,4325 and that spreadeth out7971 her roots8328 by5921 the river,3105 and shall not3808 see7200 when3588 heat2527 cometh,935 but her leaf5929 shall be1961 green;7488 and shall not3808 be careful1672 in the year8141 of drought,1226 neither3808 shall cease4185 from yielding4480 6213 fruit.6529

9  The heart3820 is deceitful6121 above all4480 3605 things, and desperately wicked:605 who4310 can know3045 it?

10  I589 the LORD3068 search2713 the heart,3820 I try974 the reins,3629 even to give5414 every man376 according to his ways,1870 and according to the fruit6529 of his doings.4611

11  As the partridge7124 sitteth1716 on eggs, and hatcheth3205 them not;3808 so he that getteth6213 riches,6239 and not3808 by right,4941 shall leave5800 them in the midst2677 of his days,3117 and at his end319 shall be1961 a fool.5036

12  A glorious3519 high4791 throne3678 from the beginning4480 7223 is the place4725 of our sanctuary.4720

13  O LORD,3068 the hope4723 of Israel,3478 all3605 that forsake5800 thee shall be ashamed,954 and they that depart from3249 me shall be written3789 in the earth,776 because3588 they have forsaken5800 853 the LORD,3068 the fountain4726 of living2416 waters.4325

14  Heal7495 me, O LORD,3068 and I shall be healed;7495 save3467 me, and I shall be saved:3467 for3588 thou859 art my praise.8416

15  Behold,2009 they1992 say559 unto413 me, Where346 is the word1697 of the LORD?3068 let it come935 now.4994

16  As for me, I589 have not3808 hastened213 from being a pastor4480 7462 to follow310 thee: neither3808 have I desired183 the woeful605 day;3117 thou859 knowest:3045 that which came4161 out of6440 my lips8193 was1961 right before5227 6440 thee.

17  Be1961 not408 a terror4288 unto me: thou859 art my hope4268 in the day3117 of evil.7451

18  Let them be confounded954 that persecute7291 me, but let not408 me589 be confounded:954 let them1992 be dismayed,2865 but let not408 me589 be dismayed:2865 bring935 upon5921 them the day3117 of evil,7451 and destroy7665 them with double4932 destruction.7670

19  Thus3541 said559 the LORD3068 unto413 me; Go1980 and stand5975 in the gate8179 of the children1121 of the people,5971 whereby834 the kings4428 of Judah3063 come in,935 and by the which834 they go out,3318 and in all3605 the gates8179 of Jerusalem;3389

20  And say559 unto413 them, Hear8085 ye the word1697 of the LORD,3068 ye kings4428 of Judah,3063 and all3605 Judah,3063 and all3605 the inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem,3389 that enter in935 by these428 gates:8179

21  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD;3068 Take heed8104 to yourselves,5315 and bear5375 no408 burden4853 on the sabbath7676 day,3117 nor bring it in935 by the gates8179 of Jerusalem;3389

22  Neither3808 carry forth3318 a burden4853 out of your houses4480 1004 on the sabbath7676 day,3117 neither3808 do6213 ye any3605 work,4399 but hallow6942 ye 853 the sabbath7676 day,3117 as834 I commanded6680 your fathers.1

23  But they obeyed8085 not,3808 neither3808 inclined5186 853 their ear,241 but made 853 their neck6203 stiff,7185 that they might not1115 hear,8085 nor1115 receive3947 instruction.4148

24  And it shall come to pass,1961 if518 ye diligently hearken8085 8085 unto413 me, saith5002 the LORD,3068 to bring in935 no1115 burden4853 through the gates8179 of this2063 city5892 on the sabbath7676 day,3117 but hallow6942 853 the sabbath7676 day,3117 to do6213 no1115 3605 work4399 therein;

25  Then shall there enter935 into the gates8179 of this2063 city5892 kings4428 and princes8269 sitting3427 upon5921 the throne3678 of David,1732 riding7392 in chariots7393 and on horses,5483 they,1992 and their princes,8269 the men376 of Judah,3063 and the inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem:3389 and this2063 city5892 shall remain3427 forever.5769

26  And they shall come935 from the cities4480 5892 of Judah,3063 and from the places about4480 5439 Jerusalem,3389 and from the land4480 776 of Benjamin,1144 and from4480 the plain,8219 and from4480 the mountains,2022 and from4480 the south,5045 bringing935 burnt offerings,5930 and sacrifices,2077 and meat offerings,4503 and incense,3828 and bringing935 sacrifices of praise,8426 unto the house1004 of the LORD.3068

27  But if518 ye will not3808 hearken8085 unto413 me to hallow6942 853 the sabbath7676 day,3117 and not1115 to bear5375 a burden,4853 even entering935 in at the gates8179 of Jerusalem3389 on the sabbath7676 day;3117 then will I kindle3341 a fire784 in the gates8179 thereof, and it shall devour398 the palaces759 of Jerusalem,3389 and it shall not3808 be quenched.3518

Jeremiah 18

1  The word1697 which834 came1961 to413 Jeremiah3414 from4480 854 the LORD,3068 saying,559

2  Arise,6965 and go down3381 to the potter's3335 house,1004 and there8033 I will cause thee to hear8085 853 my words.1697

3  Then I went down3381 to the potter's3335 house,1004 and, behold,2009 he wrought6213 a work4399 on5921 the wheels.70

4  And the vessel3627 that834 he1931 made6213 of clay2563 was marred7843 in the hand3027 of the potter:3335 so he made6213 it again7725 another312 vessel,3627 as834 seemed5869 good3474 to the potter3335 to make6213 it.

5  Then the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 to413 me, saying,559

6  O house1004 of Israel,3478 cannot3808 3201 I do6213 with you as this2088 potter?3335 saith5002 the LORD.3068 Behold,2009 as the clay2563 is in the potter's3335 hand,3027 so3651 are ye859 in mine hand,3027 O house1004 of Israel.3478

7  At what instant7281 I shall speak1696 concerning5921 a nation,1471 and concerning5921 a kingdom,4467 to pluck up,5428 and to pull down,5422 and to destroy6 it;

8  If that1931 nation,1471 against5921 whom834 I have pronounced,1696 turn7725 from their evil,4480 7451 I will repent5162 of5921 the evil7451 that834 I thought2803 to do6213 unto them.

9  And at what instant7281 I shall speak1696 concerning5921 a nation,1471 and concerning5921 a kingdom,4467 to build1129 and to plant5193 it;

10  If it do6213 evil7451 in my sight,5869 that it obey8085 not1115 my voice,6963 then I will repent5162 of5921 the good,2896 wherewith834 I said559 I would benefit3190 them.

11  Now6258 therefore go4994 to, speak559 to413 the men376 of Judah,3063 and to5921 the inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem,3389 saying,559 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD;3068 Behold,2009 I595 frame3335 evil7451 against5921 you, and devise2803 a device4284 against5921 you: return7725 ye now4994 every one376 from his evil7451 way,4480 1870 and make your ways1870 and your doings4611 good.3190

12  And they said,559 There is no hope:2976 but3588 we will walk1980 after310 our own devices,4284 and we will every one376 do6213 the imagination8307 of his evil7451 heart.3820

13  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the LORD;3068 Ask7592 ye now4994 among the heathen,1471 who4310 hath heard8085 such428 things: the virgin1330 of Israel3478 hath done6213 a very3966 horrible thing.8186

14  Will a man leave5800 the snow7950 of Lebanon3844 which cometh from the rock4480 6697 of the field?7704 or shall the cold7119 flowing5140 waters4325 that come from another place2114 be forsaken?5428

15  Because3588 my people5971 hath forgotten7911 me, they have burned incense6999 to vanity,7723 and they have caused them to stumble3782 in their ways1870 from the ancient5769 paths,7635 to walk1980 in paths,5410 in a way1870 not3808 cast up;5549

16  To make7760 their land776 desolate,8047 and a perpetual5769 hissing;8292 every one3605 that passeth5674 thereby5921 shall be astonished,8074 and wag5110 his head.7218

17  I will scatter6327 them as with an east6921 wind7307 before6440 the enemy;341 I will show7200 them the back,6203 and not3808 the face,6440 in the day3117 of their calamity.343

18  Then said559 they, Come,1980 and let us devise2803 devices4284 against5921 Jeremiah;3414 for3588 the law8451 shall not3808 perish6 from the priest,4480 3548 nor counsel6098 from the wise,4480 2450 nor the word1697 from the prophet.4480 5030 Come,1980 and let us smite5221 him with the tongue,3956 and let us not408 give heed7181 to413 any3605 of his words.1697

19  Give heed7181 to413 me, O LORD,3068 and hearken8085 to the voice6963 of them that contend3401 with me.

20  Shall evil7451 be recompensed7999 for8478 good?2896 for3588 they have digged3738 a pit7745 for my soul.5315 Remember2142 that I stood5975 before6440 thee to speak1696 good2896 for5921 them, and to turn away7725 853 thy wrath2534 from4480 them.

21  Therefore3651 deliver up5414 853 their children1121 to the famine,7458 and pour out5064 their blood by5921 the force3027 of the sword;2719 and let their wives802 be1961 bereaved of their children,7909 and be widows;490 and let their men376 be1961 put2026 to death;4194 let their young men970 be slain5221 by the sword2719 in battle.4421

22  Let a cry2201 be heard8085 from their houses,4480 1004 when3588 thou shalt bring935 a troop1416 suddenly6597 upon5921 them: for3588 they have digged3738 a pit7745 to take3920 me, and hid2934 snares6341 for my feet.7272

23  Yet, LORD,3068 thou859 knowest3045 853 all3605 their counsel6098 against5921 me to slay4194 me: forgive3722 not408 their iniquity,5771 neither408 blot out4229 their sin2403 from thy sight,4480 6440 but let them be1961 overthrown3782 before6440 thee; deal6213 thus with them in the time6256 of thine anger.639

Jeremiah 19

1  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Go1980 and get7069 a potter's3335 earthen2789 bottle,1228 and take of the ancients4480 2205 of the people,5971 and of the ancients4480 2205 of the priests;3548

2  And go forth3318 unto413 the valley1516 of the son1121 of Hinnom,2011 which834 is by the entry6607 of the east2777 gate,8179 and proclaim7121 there8033 853 the words1697 that834 I shall tell1696 413 thee,

3  And say,559 Hear8085 ye the word1697 of the LORD,3068 O kings4428 of Judah,3063 and inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem;3389 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 the God430 of Israel;3478 Behold,2009 I will bring935 evil7451 upon5921 this2088 place,4725 the which834 whosoever3605 heareth,8085 his ears241 shall tingle.6750

4  Because3282 834 they have forsaken5800 me, and have estranged5234 853 this2088 place,4725 and have burned incense6999 in it unto other312 gods,430 whom834 neither3808 they1992 nor their fathers1 have known,3045 nor the kings4428 of Judah,3063 and have filled4390 853 this2088 place4725 with the blood1818 of innocents;5355

5  They have built1129 also 853 the high places1116 of Baal,1168 to burn8313 853 their sons1121 with fire784 for burnt offerings5930 unto Baal,1168 which834 I commanded6680 not,3808 nor3808 spoke1696 it, neither3808 came5927 it into5921 my mind:3820

6  Therefore,3651 behold,2009 the days3117 come,935 saith5002 the LORD,3068 that this2088 place4725 shall no3808 more5750 be called7121 Tophet,8612 nor The valley1516 of the son1121 of Hinnom,2011 but3588 518 The valley1516 of slaughter.2028

7  And I will make void1238 853 the counsel6098 of Judah3063 and Jerusalem3389 in this2088 place;4725 and I will cause them to fall5307 by the sword2719 before6440 their enemies,341 and by the hands3027 of them that seek1245 their lives:5315 and 853 their carcasses5038 will I give5414 to be meat3978 for the fowls5775 of the heaven,8064 and for the beasts929 of the earth.776

8  And I will make7760 853 this2063 city5892 desolate,8047 and a hissing;8322 every one3605 that passeth5674 thereby5921 shall be astonished8074 and hiss8319 because5921 of all3605 the plagues4347 thereof.

9  And I will cause them to eat398 853 the flesh1320 of their sons1121 and the flesh1320 of their daughters,1323 and they shall eat398 every one376 the flesh1320 of his friend7453 in the siege4692 and straitness,4689 wherewith834 their enemies,341 and they that seek1245 their lives,5315 shall straiten6693 them.

10  Then shalt thou break7665 the bottle1228 in the sight5869 of the men376 that go1980 with854 thee,

11  And shalt say559 unto413 them, Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts;6635 Even so3602 will I break7665 853 this2088 people5971 and this2063 city,5892 as834 one breaketh7665 853 a potter's3335 vessel,3627 that834 cannot3201 3808 be made whole7495 again:5750 and they shall bury6912 them in Tophet,8612 till there be no4480 369 place4725 to bury.6912

12  Thus3651 will I do6213 unto this2088 place,4725 saith5002 the LORD,3068 and to the inhabitants3427 thereof, and even make5414 853 this2063 city5892 as Tophet:8612

13  And the houses1004 of Jerusalem,3389 and the houses1004 of the kings4428 of Judah,3063 shall be1961 defiled2931 as the place4725 of Tophet,8612 because of all3605 the houses1004 upon5921 whose834 roofs1406 they have burned incense6999 unto all3605 the host6635 of heaven,8064 and have poured out5258 drink offerings5262 unto other312 gods.430

14  Then came935 Jeremiah3414 from Tophet,4480 8612 whither834 8033 the LORD3068 had sent7971 him to prophesy;5012 and he stood5975 in the court2691 of the LORD's3068 house;1004 and said559 to413 all3605 the people,5971

15  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 the God430 of Israel;3478 Behold,2009 I will bring935 upon413 this2063 city5892 and upon5921 all3605 her towns5892 853 all3605 the evil7451 that834 I have pronounced1696 against5921 it, because3588 they have hardened7185 853 their necks,6203 that they might not1115 hear8085 853 my words.1697

Jeremiah 20

12  But, O LORD3068 of hosts,6635 that triest974 the righteous,6662 and seest7200 the reins3629 and the heart,3820 let me see7200 thy vengeance5360 on4480 them: for3588 unto413 thee have I opened1540 853 my cause.7379

13  Sing7891 unto the LORD,3068 praise1984 ye 853 the LORD:3068 for3588 he hath delivered5337 853 the soul5315 of the poor34 from the hand4480 3027 of evildoers.7489

14  Cursed779 be the day3117 wherein834 I was born:3205 let not408 the day3117 wherein834 my mother517 bore3205 me be1961 blessed.1288

15  Cursed779 be the man376 who834 brought tidings1319 to 853 my father,1 saying,559 A man2145 child1121 is born3205 unto thee; making him very glad.8055 8055

16  And let that1931 man376 be1961 as the cities5892 which834 the LORD3068 overthrew,2015 and repented5162 not:3808 and let him hear8085 the cry2201 in the morning,1242 and the shouting8643 at noontide;6256 6672

17  Because834 he slew4191 me not3808 from the womb;4480 7358 or that my mother517 might have been1961 my grave,6913 and her womb7358 to be always5769 great2030 with me.

18  Wherefore4100 came I forth3318 out of the womb4480 7358 to see7200 labor5999 and sorrow,3015 that my days3117 should be consumed3615 with shame?1322

1  Now Pashur6583 the son1121 of Immer564 the priest,3548 who1931 was also chief5057 governor6496 in the house1004 of the LORD,3068 heard8085 that 853 Jeremiah3414 prophesied5012 853 these428 things.1697

2  Then Pashur6583 smote5221 853 Jeremiah3414 the prophet,5030 and put5414 him in5921 the stocks4115 that834 were in the high5945 gate8179 of Benjamin,1144 which834 was by the house1004 of the LORD.3068

3  And it came to pass1961 on the morrow,4480 4283 that Pashur6583 brought forth3318 853 Jeremiah3414 out of4480 the stocks.4115 Then said559 Jeremiah3414 unto413 him, The LORD3068 hath not3808 called7121 thy name8034 Pashur,6583 but3588 518 Magor-missabib.4036

4  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Behold,2009 I will make5414 thee a terror4032 to thyself, and to all3605 thy friends:157 and they shall fall5307 by the sword2719 of their enemies,341 and thine eyes5869 shall behold7200 it: and I will give5414 all3605 Judah3063 into the hand3027 of the king4428 of Babylon,894 and he shall carry them captive1540 into Babylon,894 and shall slay5221 them with the sword.2719

5  Moreover I will deliver5414 853 all3605 the strength2633 of this2063 city,5892 and all3605 the labors3018 thereof, and all3605 the precious things3366 thereof, and all3605 the treasures214 of the kings4428 of Judah3063 will I give5414 into the hand3027 of their enemies,341 which shall spoil962 them, and take3947 them, and carry935 them to Babylon.894

6  And thou,859 Pashur,6583 and all3605 that dwell3427 in thine house1004 shall go1980 into captivity:7628 and thou shalt come935 to Babylon,894 and there8033 thou shalt die,4191 and shalt be buried6912 there,8033 thou,859 and all3605 thy friends,157 to whom834 thou hast prophesied5012 lies.8267

7  O LORD,3068 thou hast deceived6601 me, and I was deceived:6601 thou art stronger2388 than I, and hast prevailed:3201 I am1961 in derision7814 daily,3605 3117 every one3605 mocketh3932 me.

8  For3588 since4480 1767 I spoke,1696 I cried out,2199 I cried7121 violence2555 and spoil;7701 because3588 the word1697 of the LORD3068 was made1961 a reproach2781 unto me, and a derision,7047 daily.3605 3117

9  Then I said,559 I will not3808 make mention2142 of him, nor3808 speak1696 any more5750 in his name.8034 But his word was1961 in mine heart3820 as a burning1197 fire784 shut up6113 in my bones,6106 and I was weary3811 with forbearing,3557 and I could3201 not3808 stay.

10  For3588 I heard8085 the defaming1681 of many,7227 fear4032 on every side.4480 5439 Report,5046 say they, and we will report5046 it. All3605 my familiars582 7965 watched8104 for my halting,6761 saying, Peradventure194 he will be enticed,6601 and we shall prevail3201 against him, and we shall take3947 our revenge5360 on4480 him.

11  But the LORD3068 is with854 me as a mighty1368 terrible one:6184 therefore5921 3651 my persecutors7291 shall stumble,3782 and they shall not3808 prevail:3201 they shall be greatly3966 ashamed;954 for3588 they shall not3808 prosper:7919 their everlasting5769 confusion3639 shall never3808 be forgotten.7911

Jeremiah 21

1  The word1697 which834 came1961 unto413 Jeremiah3414 from4480 854 the LORD,3068 when king4428 Zedekiah6667 sent7971 unto413 him 853 Pashur6583 the son1121 of Melchiah,4441 and Zephaniah6846 the son1121 of Maaseiah4641 the priest,3548 saying,559
