ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORD;H3068 GoH3381 downH3381 to the houseH1004 of the kingH4428 of Judah,H3063 and speakH1696 thereH8033 thisH2088 word,H1697
And say,H559 HearH8085 the wordH1697 of the LORD,H3068 O kingH4428 of Judah,H3063 that sitH3427 on the throneH3678 of David,H1732 you, and your servants,H5650 and your peopleH5971 that enterH935 in by theseH428 gates:H8179
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORD;H3068 ExecuteH6213 you judgmentH4941 and righteousness,H6666 and deliverH5337 the spoiledH1497 out of the handH3027 of the oppressor:H6216 and do noH408 wrong,H3238 do noH408 violenceH2554 to the stranger,H1616 the fatherless,H3490 nor the widow,H490 neitherH408 shedH8210 innocentH5355 bloodH1818 in thisH2088 place.H4725
For ifH518 you doH6213 thisH2088 thingH1697 indeed, then shall there enterH935 in by the gatesH8179 of thisH2088 houseH1004 kingsH4428 sittingH3427 on the throneH3678 of David,H1732 ridingH7392 in chariotsH7393 and on horses,H5483 he, and his servants,H5650 and his people.H5971
But ifH518 you will not hearH8085 theseH428 words,H1697 I swearH7650 by myself, saidH5002 the LORD,H3068 that thisH2088 houseH1004 shall becomeH1961 a desolation.H2723
For thusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 to the king'sH4428 houseH1004 of Judah;H3063 You are GileadH1568 to me, and the headH7218 of Lebanon:H3844 yet surelyH518 H3808 I will makeH7896 you a wilderness,H4057 and citiesH5892 which are not inhabited.H3427
And I will prepareH6942 destroyersH7843 againstH5921 you, everyH376 oneH376 with his weapons:H3627 and they shall cutH3772 down your choiceH4005 cedars,H730 and cast them intoH5921 the fire.H784
And manyH7227 nationsH1471 shall passH5674 by thisH2063 city,H5892 and they shall sayH559 every manH376 to his neighbor,H7453 WhyH5921 H4100 has the LORDH3068 doneH6213 thusH3602 to thisH2063 greatH1419 city?H5892
Then they shall answer,H559 BecauseH5921 H834 they have forsakenH5800 the covenantH1285 of the LORDH3068 their God,H430 and worshippedH7812 otherH312 gods,H430 and servedH5647 them.
WeepH1058 you not for the dead,H4191 neitherH408 bemoanH5110 him: but weepH1058 sore for him that goesH1980 away: for he shall returnH7725 noH3808 more,H5750 nor seeH7200 his nativeH4138 country.H776
For thusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 touchingH413 ShallumH7967 the sonH1121 of JosiahH2977 kingH4428 of Judah,H3063 which reignedH4427 insteadH8478 of JosiahH2977 his father,H1 whichH834 wentH3318 forthH3318 out of thisH2088 place;H4725 He shall not returnH7725 thitherH8033 any more:H5750
But he shall dieH4191 in the placeH4725 whereH834 H8033 they have led him captive,H1540 and shall seeH7200 thisH2063 landH776 noH3808 more.H5750
WoeH1945 to him that buildsH1129 his houseH1004 by unrighteousness,H3808 H6664 and his chambersH5944 by wrong;H3808 H4941 that uses his neighbor'sH7453 serviceH5647 withoutH2600 wages,H2600 and givesH5414 him not for his work;H6467
That said,H559 I will buildH1129 me a wideH4060 houseH1004 and largeH7304 chambers,H5944 and cutsH7167 him out windows;H2474 and it is paneledH5603 with cedar,H730 and paintedH4886 with vermilion.H8350
Shall you reign,H4427 becauseH3588 you closeH8474 yourself in cedar?H730 did not your fatherH1 eatH398 and drink,H8354 and doH6213 judgmentH4941 and justice,H6666 and thenH227 it was wellH2896 with him?
He judgedH1777 the causeH1779 of the poorH6041 and needy;H34 thenH227 it was wellH2896 with him: was not thisH1931 to knowH1847 me? saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
But your eyesH5869 and your heartH3820 are not but for your covetousness,H1215 and for to shedH8210 innocentH5355 blood,H1818 and for oppression,H6233 and for violence,H4835 to doH6213 it.
ThereforeH3651 thusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 concerningH413 JehoiakimH3079 the sonH1121 of JosiahH2977 kingH4428 of Judah;H3063 They shall not lamentH5594 for him, saying, AhH1945 my brother!H251 or, AhH1945 sister!H269 they shall not lamentH5594 for him, saying, AhH1945 lord!H113 or, AhH1945 his glory!H1935
He shall be buriedH6912 with the burialH6900 of an ass,H2543 drawnH5498 and castH7993 forth beyondH1973 the gatesH8179 of Jerusalem.H3389
GoH5927 up to Lebanon,H3844 and cry;H6817 and liftH5414 up your voiceH6963 in Bashan,H1316 and cryH6817 from the passages:H5676 for allH3605 your loversH157 are destroyed.H7665
I spokeH1696 to you in your prosperity;H7962 but you said,H559 I will not hear.H8085 ThisH2088 has been your mannerH1870 from your youth,H5271 that you obeyedH8085 not my voice.H6963
The windH7307 shall eatH7462 up allH3605 your pastors,H7462 and your loversH157 shall goH3212 into captivity:H7628 surelyH3588 thenH227 shall you be ashamedH954 and confoundedH3637 for allH3605 your wickedness.H7451
O inhabitantH3427 of Lebanon,H3844 that make your nestH7077 in the cedars,H730 howH4100 graciousH2603 shall you be when pangsH2256 comeH935 on you, the painH2427 as of a woman in travail!H3205
As I live,H2416 saidH5002 the LORD,H3068 thoughH3588 H518 ConiahH3659 the sonH1121 of JehoiakimH3079 kingH4428 of JudahH3063 were the signetH2368 on my rightH3225 hand,H3027 yetH3588 would I pluckH5423 you there;H8033
And I will giveH5414 you into the handH3027 of them that seekH1245 your life,H5315 and into the handH3027 of them whose faceH6440 you fear,H1481 even into the handH3027 of NebuchadrezzarH5019 kingH4428 of Babylon,H894 and into the handH3027 of the Chaldeans.H3778
And I will castH2904 you out, and your motherH517 that boreH3205 you, intoH5921 anotherH312 country,H776 whereH834 H8033 you were not born;H3205 and thereH8033 shall you die.H4191
But to the landH776 whereuntoH834 they desireH5375 H5315 to return,H7725 thitherH8033 shall they not return.H7725
Is thisH2088 manH376 ConiahH3659 a despisedH959 brokenH5310 idol?H6089 is he a vesselH3627 wherein is noH369 pleasure?H2656 whyH4069 are they castH7993 out, he and his seed,H2233 and are castH2904 intoH5921 a landH776 whichH834 they knowH3045 not?
O earth,H776 earth,H776 earth,H776 hearH8085 the wordH1697 of the LORD.H3068
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORD,H3068 WriteH3789 you thisH2088 manH376 childless,H6185 a manH1397 that shall not prosperH6743 in his days:H3117 for noH3808 manH376 of his seedH2233 shall prosper,H6743 sittingH3427 on the throneH3678 of David,H1732 and rulingH4910 any moreH5750 in Judah.H3063
