The wordsH1697 of JeremiahH3414 the sonH1121 of Hilkiah,H2518 of the priestsH3548 that were in AnathothH6068 in the landH776 of Benjamin:H1144
To whomH834 the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 cameH1961 in the daysH3117 of JosiahH2977 the sonH1121 of AmonH526 kingH4428 of Judah,H3063 in the thirteenthH7969 H6240 yearH8141 of his reign.H4427
It cameH1961 also in the daysH3117 of JehoiakimH3079 the sonH1121 of JosiahH2977 kingH4428 of Judah,H3063 to the endH8537 of the eleventhH6240 yearH8141 of ZedekiahH6667 the sonH1121 of JosiahH2977 kingH4428 of Judah,H3063 to the carryingH1540 away of JerusalemH3389 captiveH1540 in the fifthH2549 month.H2320
Then the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 cameH1961 to me, saying,H559
BeforeH2962 I formedH3335 you in the bellyH990 I knewH3045 you; and beforeH2962 you cameH3318 forthH3318 out of the wombH7358 I sanctifiedH6942 you, and I ordainedH5414 you a prophetH5030 to the nations.H1471
Then saidH559 I, Ah,H162 LordH136 GOD!H3069 behold,H2009 I cannotH3808 speak:H1696 for I am a child.H5288
But the LORDH3068 saidH559 to me, SayH559 not, I am a child:H5288 for you shall goH3212 to allH3605 that I shall sendH7971 you, and whateverH3605 H834 I commandH6680 you you shall speak.H1696
Be not afraidH3372 of their faces:H6440 for I am with you to deliverH5337 you, saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
Then the LORDH3068 putH7971 forthH7971 his hand,H3027 and touchedH5060 my mouth.H6310 And the LORDH3068 saidH559 to me, Behold,H2009 I have putH5414 my wordsH1697 in your mouth.H6310
See,H7200 I have thisH2088 dayH3117 setH6485 you overH5921 the nationsH1471 and overH5921 the kingdoms,H4467 to rootH5428 out, and to pullH5422 down, and to destroy,H6 and to throwH2040 down,H2040 to build,H1129 and to plant.H5193
Moreover the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 cameH1961 to me, saying,H559 Jeremiah,H3414 whatH4100 seeH7200 you? And I said,H559 I seeH7200 a rodH4731 of an almondH8247 tree.
Then saidH559 the LORDH3068 to me, You have wellH3190 seen:H7200 for I will hastenH8245 my wordH1697 to performH6213 it.
And the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 cameH1961 to me the secondH8145 time, saying,H559 WhatH4100 seeH7200 you? And I said,H559 I seeH7200 a seethingH5301 pot;H5518 and the faceH6440 thereof is towardH6440 the north.H6828
Then the LORDH3068 saidH559 to me, Out of the northH6828 an evilH7451 shall breakH6605 forth on allH3605 the inhabitantsH3427 of the land.H776
For, see,H2009 I will callH7121 allH3605 the familiesH4940 of the kingdomsH4467 of the north,H6828 saidH5002 the LORD;H3068 and they shall come,H935 and they shall setH5414 everyH376 oneH376 his throneH3678 at the enteringH6607 of the gatesH8179 of Jerusalem,H3389 and againstH5921 allH3605 the wallsH2346 thereof roundH5439 about, and againstH5921 allH3605 the citiesH5892 of Judah.H3063
And I will utterH1696 my judgmentsH4941 againstH5921 them touchingH5921 allH3605 their wickedness,H7451 who have forsakenH5800 me, and have burnedH6999 incenseH6999 to otherH312 gods,H430 and worshippedH7812 the worksH4639 of their own hands.H3027
You therefore girdH2296 up your loins,H4975 and arise,H6965 and speakH1696 to them allH3605 that I commandH6680 you: be not dismayedH2865 at their faces,H6440 lestH6435 I confoundH2865 you beforeH6440 them.
For, behold,H2009 I have madeH5414 you this dayH3117 a defendedH4013 city,H5892 and an ironH1270 pillar,H5982 and brazenH5178 wallsH2346 againstH5921 the wholeH3605 land,H776 against the kingsH4428 of Judah,H3063 against the princesH8269 thereof, against the priestsH3548 thereof, and against the peopleH5971 of the land.H776
And they shall fightH3898 againstH413 you; but they shall not prevailH3201 against you; for I am with you, saidH5002 the LORD,H3068 to deliverH5337 you.
