The wordH1697 that cameH1961 to JeremiahH3414 from the LORDH3068 in the tenthH6224 yearH8141 of ZedekiahH6667 kingH4428 of Judah,H3063 whichH1958 was the eighteenthH6240 yearH8141 of Nebuchadrezzar.H5019
For thenH227 the kingH4428 of Babylon'sH894 armyH2428 besiegedH6696 Jerusalem:H3389 and JeremiahH3414 the prophetH5030 was shutH3607 up in the courtH2691 of the prison,H4307 whichH834 was in the kingH4428 of Judah'sH3063 house.H1004
For ZedekiahH6667 kingH4428 of JudahH3063 had shutH3607 him up, saying,H559 WhyH4069 do you prophesy,H5012 and say,H559 ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORD,H3068 Behold,H2005 I will giveH5414 thisH2063 cityH5892 into the handH3027 of the kingH4428 of Babylon,H894 and he shall takeH3920 it;
And ZedekiahH6667 kingH4428 of JudahH3063 shall not escapeH4422 out of the handH3027 of the Chaldeans,H3778 but shall surely be deliveredH5414 into the handH3027 of the kingH4428 of Babylon,H894 and shall speakH1696 with him mouthH6310 to mouth,H6310 and his eyesH5869 shall beholdH7200 his eyes;H5869
And he shall leadH3212 ZedekiahH6667 to Babylon,H894 and thereH8033 shall he be untilH5704 I visitH6485 him, saidH5002 the LORD:H3068 thoughH3588 you fightH3898 with the Chaldeans,H3778 you shall not prosper.H6743
And JeremiahH3414 said,H559 The wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 cameH1961 to me, saying,H559
Behold,H2009 HanameelH2601 the sonH1121 of ShallumH7967 your uncleH1730 shall comeH935 to you saying,H559 BuyH7069 you my fieldH7704 that is in Anathoth:H6068 for the rightH4941 of redemptionH1353 is your to buyH7069 it.
So HanameelH2601 my uncle'sH1733 sonH1121 cameH935 to me in the courtH2691 of the prisonH4307 according to the wordH1697 of the LORD,H3068 and saidH559 to me, BuyH7069 my field,H7704 I prayH4994 you, that is in Anathoth,H6068 whichH834 is in the countryH776 of Benjamin:H1144 for the rightH4941 of inheritanceH3425 is yours, and the redemptionH1353 is yours; buyH7069 it for yourself. Then I knewH3045 that thisH1931 was the wordH1697 of the LORD.H3068
And I boughtH7069 the fieldH7704 of HanameelH2601 my uncle'sH1733 son,H1121 that was in Anathoth,H6068 and weighedH8254 him the money,H3701 even seventeenH7651 H6240 shekelsH8255 of silver.H3701
And I subscribedH3789 the evidence,H5612 and sealedH2856 it, and took witnesses,H5707 and weighedH8254 him the moneyH3701 in the balances.H3976
So I tookH3947 the evidenceH5612 of the purchase,H4736 both that which was sealedH2856 according to the lawH4687 and custom,H2706 and that which was open:H1540
And I gaveH5414 the evidenceH5612 of the purchaseH4736 to BaruchH1263 the sonH1121 of Neriah,H5374 the sonH1121 of Maaseiah,H4271 in the sightH5869 of HanameelH2601 my uncle'sH1733 son, and in the presenceH5869 of the witnessesH5707 that subscribedH3789 the bookH5612 of the purchase,H4736 beforeH5869 allH3605 the JewsH3064 that satH3427 in the courtH2691 of the prison.H4307
And I chargedH6680 BaruchH1263 beforeH5869 them, saying,H559
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 of hosts,H6635 the GodH430 of Israel;H3478 TakeH3947 theseH428 evidences,H5612 thisH2088 evidenceH5612 of the purchase,H4736 both which is sealed,H2856 and thisH2088 evidenceH5612 which is open;H1540 and putH5414 them in an earthenH2789 vessel,H3627 that they may continueH5975 manyH7227 days.H3117
For thusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 of hosts,H6635 the GodH430 of Israel;H3478 HousesH1004 and fieldsH7704 and vineyardsH3754 shall be possessedH7069 againH5750 in thisH2063 land.H776
Now when I had deliveredH5414 the evidenceH5612 of the purchaseH4736 to BaruchH1263 the sonH1121 of Neriah,H5374 I prayedH6419 to the LORD,H3068 saying,H559
AhH162 LordH136 GOD!H3069 behold,H2009 you have madeH6213 the heavenH8064 and the earthH776 by your greatH1419 powerH3581 and stretchedH5186 out arm,H2220 and there is nothingH3808 H1697 too hardH6381 for you:
You showH6213 loving kindnessH2617 to thousands,H505 and recompenseH7999 the iniquityH5771 of the fathersH1 intoH413 the bosomH2436 of their childrenH1121 afterH310 them: the Great,H1419 the MightyH1368 God,H410 the LORDH3068 of hosts,H6635 is his name,H8034
GreatH1419 in counsel,H6098 and mightyH7227 in work:H5950 for your eyesH5869 are openH6491 on allH3605 the waysH1870 of the sonsH1121 of men:H120 to giveH5414 everyH376 oneH376 according to his ways,H1870 and according to the fruitH6529 of his doings:H4611
WhichH834 have setH7760 signsH226 and wondersH4159 in the landH776 of Egypt,H4714 even to thisH2088 day,H3119 and in Israel,H3478 and among other men;H120 and have madeH6213 you a name,H8034 as atH5704 thisH2088 day;H3119
And have broughtH3318 forthH3318 your peopleH5971 IsraelH3478 out of the landH776 of EgyptH4714 with signs,H226 and with wonders,H4159 and with a strongH2389 hand,H3027 and with a stretchedH5186 out arm,H248 and with greatH1419 terror;H4172
And have givenH5414 them thisH2063 land,H776 whichH834 you did swearH7650 to their fathersH1 to giveH5414 them, a landH776 flowingH2100 with milkH2461 and honey;H1706
And they cameH935 in, and possessedH3423 it; but they obeyedH8085 not your voice,H6963 neitherH3808 walkedH1980 in your law;H8451 they have doneH6213 nothingH3808 of allH3605 that you commandedH6680 them to do:H6213 therefore you have caused allH3605 thisH2063 evilH7451 to comeH7122 on them:
BeholdH2009 the mounts,H5550 they are comeH935 to the cityH5892 to takeH3920 it; and the cityH5892 is givenH5414 into the handH3027 of the Chaldeans,H3778 that fightH3898 againstH5921 it, becauseH6440 of the sword,H2719 and of the famine,H7458 and of the pestilence:H1698 and whatH834 you have spokenH1696 is comeH1961 to pass; and, behold,H2009 you seeH7200 it.
And you have saidH559 to me, O LordH136 GOD,H3069 BuyH7069 you the fieldH7704 for money,H3701 and takeH5749 witnesses;H5707 for the cityH5892 is givenH5414 into the handH3027 of the Chaldeans.H3778
Then cameH1961 the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 to Jeremiah,H3414 saying,H559
Behold,H2009 I am the LORD,H3068 the GodH430 of allH3605 flesh:H1320 is there anyH3605 thingH1697 too hardH6381 for me?
ThereforeH5921 H3651 thusH3541 saidH559 the LORD;H3068 Behold,H2005 I will giveH5414 thisH2063 cityH5892 into the handH3027 of the Chaldeans,H3778 and into the handH3027 of NebuchadrezzarH5019 kingH4428 of Babylon,H894 and he shall takeH3920 it:
And the Chaldeans,H3778 that fightH3898 againstH5921 thisH2063 city,H5892 shall comeH935 and set fireH784 on thisH2063 city,H5892 and burnH8313 it with the houses,H1004 on whoseH834 roofsH1406 they have offeredH6999 incenseH6999 to Baal,H1168 and pouredH5258 out drinkH5262 offerings to otherH312 gods,H430 to provoke me to anger.H3707
For the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 and the childrenH1121 of JudahH3063 have onlyH389 doneH6213 evilH7451 beforeH5869 me from their youth:H5271 for the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 have onlyH389 provoked me to angerH3707 with the workH4639 of their hands,H3027 saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
For thisH2063 cityH5892 has been to me as a provocation of my angerH639 and of my furyH2534 from the dayH3119 that they builtH1129 it even to thisH2088 day;H3119 that I should removeH5493 it from beforeH5921 my face,H6440
BecauseH5921 of allH3605 the evilH7451 of the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 and of the childrenH1121 of Judah,H3063 whichH834 they have doneH6213 to provoke me to anger,H3707 they, their kings,H4428 their princes,H8269 their priests,H3548 and their prophets,H5030 and the menH376 of Judah,H3063 and the inhabitantsH3427 of Jerusalem.H3389
And they have turnedH6437 to me the back,H6203 and not the face:H6440 though I taughtH3925 them, risingH7925 up earlyH7925 and teachingH3925 them, yet they have not listenedH8085 to receiveH3947 instruction.H4148
But they setH7760 their abominationsH8251 in the house,H1004 whichH834 is calledH7121 by my name,H8034 to defileH2930 it.
And they builtH1129 the highH1116 places of Baal,H1168 whichH834 are in the valleyH1516 of the sonH1121 of Hinnom,H2011 to causeH4616 their sonsH1121 and their daughtersH1323 to passH5674 through the fire to Molech;H4432 whichH834 I commandedH6680 them not, neitherH3808 cameH5927 it intoH5921 my mind,H3820 that they should doH6213 thisH2063 abomination,H8441 to cause JudahH3063 to sin.H2398
And nowH6258 thereforeH3651 thusH3541 saidH559 the LORD,H3068 the GodH430 of Israel,H3478 concerningH413 thisH2063 city,H5892 whereofH834 you say,H559 It shall be deliveredH5414 into the handH3027 of the kingH4428 of BabylonH894 by the sword,H2719 and by the famine,H7458 and by the pestilence;H1698
Behold,H2005 I will gatherH6908 them out of allH3605 countries,H776 whereH834 H8033 I have drivenH5080 them in my anger,H639 and in my fury,H2534 and in greatH1419 wrath;H7110 and I will bringH7725 them againH7725 to thisH2088 place,H4725 and I will cause them to dwellH3427 safely:H983
And they shall be my people,H5971 and I will be their God:H430
And I will giveH5414 them oneH259 heart,H3820 and oneH259 way,H1870 that they may fearH3372 me for ever,H3605 H3117 for the goodH2896 of them, and of their childrenH1121 afterH310 them:
And I will makeH3772 an everlastingH5769 covenantH1285 with them, that I will not turnH7725 away from them, to do them good;H3190 but I will putH5414 my fearH3374 in their hearts,H3824 that they shall not departH5493 from me.
Yes, I will rejoiceH7797 overH5921 them to do them good,H2895 and I will plantH5193 them in thisH2063 landH776 assuredlyH571 with my wholeH3605 heartH3820 and with my wholeH3605 soul.H5315
For thusH3541 saidH559 the LORD;H3068 Like as I have broughtH935 allH3605 thisH2063 greatH1419 evilH7451 on thisH2088 people,H5971 soH3651 will I bringH935 on them allH3605 the goodH2896 that I have promisedH1696 them.
And fieldsH7704 shall be boughtH7069 in thisH2063 land,H776 whereofH834 you say,H559 It is desolateH8077 withoutH369 manH120 or beast;H929 it is givenH5414 into the handH3027 of the Chaldeans.H3778
Men shall buyH7069 fieldsH7704 for money,H3701 and subscribeH3789 evidences,H5612 and sealH2856 them, and takeH5749 witnessesH5707 in the landH776 of Benjamin,H1144 and in the places aboutH5439 Jerusalem,H3389 and in the citiesH5892 of Judah,H3063 and in the citiesH5892 of the mountains,H2022 and in the citiesH5892 of the valley,H8219 and in the citiesH5892 of the south:H5045 for I will cause their captivityH7622 to return,H7725 saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
