Now PashurH6583 the sonH1121 of ImmerH564 the priest,H3548 whoH1931 was also chiefH5057 governorH5057 in the houseH1004 of the LORD,H3068 heardH8085 that JeremiahH3414 prophesiedH5012 theseH428 things.H1697
Then PashurH6583 smoteH5221 JeremiahH3414 the prophet,H5030 and putH5414 him in the stocksH4115 that were in the highH5945 gateH8179 of Benjamin,H1144 whichH834 was by the houseH1004 of the LORD.H3068
And it cameH1961 to pass on the morrow,H4283 that PashurH6583 broughtH3318 forthH3318 JeremiahH3414 out of the stocks.H4115 Then saidH559 JeremiahH3414 to him, The LORDH3068 has not calledH7121 your nameH8034 Pashur,H6583 but Magormissabib.H4036
For thusH3541 saidH559 the LORD,H3068 Behold,H2005 I will makeH5414 you a terrorH4032 to yourself, and to allH3605 your friends:H157 and they shall fallH5307 by the swordH2719 of their enemies,H341 and your eyesH5869 shall beholdH7200 it: and I will giveH5414 allH3605 JudahH3063 into the handH3027 of the kingH4428 of Babylon,H894 and he shall carryH1540 them captiveH1540 into Babylon,H894 and shall slayH5221 them with the sword.H2719
Moreover I will deliverH5414 allH3605 the strengthH2633 of thisH2063 city,H5892 and allH3605 the laborsH3018 thereof, and allH3605 the preciousH3366 things thereof, and allH3605 the treasuresH214 of the kingsH4428 of JudahH3063 will I giveH5414 into the handH3027 of their enemies,H341 whichH834 shall spoilH962 them, and takeH3947 them, and carryH935 them to Babylon.H894
And you, Pashur,H6583 and allH3605 that dwellH3427 in your houseH1004 shall goH3212 into captivity:H7628 and you shall comeH935 to Babylon,H894 and thereH8033 you shall die,H4191 and shall be buriedH6912 there,H8033 you, and allH3605 your friends,H157 to whomH834 H1992 you have prophesiedH5012 lies.H8267
O LORD,H3068 you have deceivedH6601 me, and I was deceived;H6601 you are strongerH2388 than I, and have prevailed:H3201 I am in derisionH7814 daily,H3605 H3117 everyH3605 one mocksH3932 me.
For sinceH1767 I spoke,H1696 I criedH2199 out, I criedH7121 violenceH2555 and spoil;H7701 becauseH3588 the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 was madeH1961 a reproachH2781 to me, and a derision,H7047 daily.H3605 H3117
Then I said,H559 I will not make mentionH2142 of him, norH3808 speakH1696 any moreH5750 in his name.H8034 But his word was in my heartH3820 as a burningH1197 fireH784 shutH6113 up in my bones,H6106 and I was wearyH3811 with forbearing,H3557 and I couldH3201 not stay.
For I heardH8085 the defamingH1681 of many,H7227 fearH4032 on everyH5437 side.H5439 Report,H5046 say they, and we will reportH5046 it. AllH3605 my familiarsH7965 watchedH8104 for my halting,H6761 saying, PeradventureH194 he will be enticed,H6601 and we shall prevailH3201 against him, and we shall takeH3947 our revengeH5360 on him.
But the LORDH3068 is with me as a mightyH1368 terribleH6184 one: thereforeH5921 H3651 my persecutorsH7291 shall stumble,H3782 and they shall not prevail:H3201 they shall be greatlyH3966 ashamed;H954 for they shall not prosper:H7919 their everlastingH5769 confusionH3639 shall neverH3808 be forgotten.H7911
But, O LORDH3068 of hosts,H6635 that tryH974 the righteous,H6662 and seeH7200 the reinsH3629 and the heart,H3820 let me seeH7200 your vengeanceH5360 on them: for to you have I openedH1540 my cause.H7379
SingH7891 to the LORD,H3068 praiseH1984 you the LORD:H3068 for he has deliveredH5337 the soulH5315 of the poorH34 from the handH3027 of evildoers.H7489
CursedH779 be the dayH3117 whereinH834 I was born:H3205 let not the dayH3117 whereinH834 my motherH517 boreH3205 me be blessed.H1288
CursedH779 be the manH376 whoH834 broughtH1319 tidingsH1319 to my father,H1 saying,H559 A manH2145 childH1121 is bornH3205 to you; making him very glad.H8056
And let that manH376 be as the citiesH5892 whichH834 the LORDH3068 overthrew,H2015 and repentedH5162 not: and let him hearH8085 the cryH2201 in the morning,H1242 and the shoutingH8643 at noontide;H6256
BecauseH834 he slewH4191 me not from the womb;H7358 or that my motherH517 might have beenH1961 my grave,H6913 and her wombH7358 to be alwaysH5769 greatH2030 with me.
WhyH4100 cameH3318 I forthH3318 out of the wombH7358 to seeH7200 laborH5999 and sorrow,H3015 that my daysH3117 should be consumedH3615 with shame?H1322
