The wordH1697 whichH834 cameH1961 to JeremiahH3414 from the LORD,H3068 when kingH4428 ZedekiahH6667 sentH7971 to him PashurH6583 the sonH1121 of Melchiah,H4441 and ZephaniahH6846 the sonH1121 of MaaseiahH4641 the priest,H3548 saying,H559
Inquire,H1875 I prayH4994 you, of the LORDH3068 for us; for NebuchadrezzarH5019 kingH4428 of BabylonH894 makes warH3898 againstH5921 us; ifH194 so be that the LORDH3068 will dealH6213 with us according to allH3605 his wondrousH6381 works, that he may goH5927 up from us.
Then saidH559 JeremiahH3414 to them, ThusH3541 shall you sayH559 to Zedekiah:H6667
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 GodH430 of Israel;H3478 Behold,H2005 I will turnH5437 backH5437 the weaponsH3627 of warH4421 that are in your hands,H3027 with whichH834 you fightH3898 against the kingH4428 of Babylon,H894 and against the Chaldeans,H3778 which besiegeH6696 you withoutH2351 the walls,H2346 and I will assembleH622 them intoH413 the middleH8432 of thisH2063 city.H5892
And I myselfH589 will fightH3898 against you with an outstretchedH5186 handH3027 and with a strongH2389 arm,H2220 even in anger,H639 and in fury,H2534 and in greatH1419 wrath.H7110
And I will smiteH5221 the inhabitantsH3427 of thisH2063 city,H5892 both manH120 and beast:H929 they shall dieH4191 of a greatH1419 pestilence.H1698
And afterward,H310 H3651 saidH5002 the LORD,H3068 I will deliverH5414 ZedekiahH6667 kingH4428 of Judah,H3063 and his servants,H5650 and the people,H5971 and such as are leftH7604 in thisH2063 cityH5892 from the pestilence,H1698 from the sword,H2719 and from the famine,H7458 into the handH3027 of NebuchadrezzarH5019 kingH4428 of Babylon,H894 and into the handH3027 of their enemies,H341 and into the handH3027 of those that seekH1245 their life:H5315 and he shall smiteH5221 them with the edgeH6310 of the sword;H2719 he shall not spareH2347 them, neitherH3808 have pity,H2550 norH3808 have mercy.H7355
And to thisH2088 peopleH5971 you shall say,H559 ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORD;H3068 Behold,H2005 I setH5414 beforeH6440 you the wayH1870 of life,H2416 and the wayH1870 of death.H4194
He that staysH3427 in thisH2063 cityH5892 shall dieH4191 by the sword,H2719 and by the famine,H7458 and by the pestilence:H1698 but he that goesH3318 out, and fallsH5307 to the ChaldeansH3778 that besiegeH6696 you, he shall live,H2421 and his lifeH5315 shall be to him for a prey.H7998
For I have setH7760 my faceH6440 against thisH2063 cityH5892 for evil,H7451 and not for good,H2896 saidH5002 the LORD:H3068 it shall be givenH5414 into the handH3027 of the kingH4428 of Babylon,H894 and he shall burnH8313 it with fire.H784
And touching the houseH1004 of the kingH4428 of Judah,H3063 say, HearH8085 you the wordH1697 of the LORD;H3068
O houseH1004 of David,H1732 thusH3541 saidH559 the LORD;H3068 ExecuteH1777 judgmentH4941 in the morning,H1242 and deliverH5337 him that is spoiledH1497 out of the handH3027 of the oppressor,H6231 lestH6435 my furyH2534 goH3318 out like fire,H784 and burnH1197 that noneH369 can quenchH3518 it, becauseH6440 of the evilH7455 of your doings.H4611
Behold,H2005 I am againstH413 you, O inhabitantH3427 of the valley,H6010 and rockH6697 of the plain,H4334 saidH5002 the LORD;H3068 which say,H559 WhoH4310 shall comeH5181 downH5181 againstH5921 us? or whoH4310 shall enterH935 into our habitations?H4585
But I will punishH6485 you according to the fruitH6529 of your doings,H4611 saidH5002 the LORD:H3068 and I will kindleH3341 a fireH784 in the forestH3293 thereof, and it shall devourH398 allH3605 things roundH5439 about it.
