Jeremiah 23

Woe
<01945>
be unto the pastors
<07462> (8802)
that destroy
<06> (8764)
and scatter
<06327> (8688)
the sheep
<06629>
of my pasture
<04830>_!
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
Therefore thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>
against the pastors
<07462> (8802)
that feed
<07462> (8802)
my people
<05971>_;
Ye have scattered
<06327> (8689)
my flock
<06629>_,
and driven them away
<05080> (8686)_,
and have not visited
<06485> (8804)
them: behold, I will visit
<06485> (8802)
upon you the evil
<07455>
of your doings
<04611>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
And I will gather
<06908> (8762)
the remnant
<07611>
of my flock
<06629>
out of all countries
<0776>
whither I have driven
<05080> (8689)
them, and will bring them again
<07725> (8689)
to their folds
<05116>_;
and they shall be fruitful
<06509> (8804)
and increase
<07235> (8804)_.
And I will set up
<06965> (8689)
shepherds
<07462> (8802)
over them which shall feed
<07462> (8804)
them: and they shall fear
<03372> (8799)
no more, nor be dismayed
<02865> (8735)_,
neither shall they be lacking
<06485> (8735)_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
Behold, the days
<03117>
come
<0935> (8802)_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
that I will raise
<06965> (8689)
unto David
<01732>
a righteous
<06662>
Branch
<06780>_,
and a King
<04428>
shall reign
<04427> (8804)
and prosper
<07919> (8689)_,
and shall execute
<06213> (8804)
judgment
<04941>
and justice
<06666>
in the earth
<0776>_.
In his days
<03117>
Judah
<03063>
shall be saved
<03467> (8735)_,
and Israel
<03478>
shall dwell
<07931> (8799)
safely
<0983>_:
and this [is] his name
<08034>
whereby he shall be called
<07121> (8799)_,
THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS
<03072>_.
{THE LORD...: Heb. Jehovahtsidkenu}
Therefore, behold, the days
<03117>
come
<0935> (8802)_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
that they shall no more say
<0559> (8799)_,
The LORD
<03068>
liveth
<02416>_,
which brought up
<05927> (8689)
the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
out of the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_;
But, The LORD
<03068>
liveth
<02416>_,
which brought up
<05927> (8689)
and which led
<0935> (8689)
the seed
<02233>
of the house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>
out of the north
<06828>
country
<0776>_,
and from all countries
<0776>
whither I had driven
<05080> (8689)
them; and they shall dwell
<03427> (8804)
in their own land
<0127>_.
Mine heart
<03820>
within
<07130>
me is broken
<07665> (8738)
because of the prophets
<05030>_;
all my bones
<06106>
shake
<07363> (8804)_;
I am like a drunken
<07910>
man
<0376>_,
and like a man
<01397>
whom wine
<03196>
hath overcome
<05674> (8804)_,
because
<06440>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and because of the words
<01697>
of his holiness
<06944>_.
For the land
<0776>
is full
<04390> (8804)
of adulterers
<05003> (8764)_;
for because
<06440>
of swearing
<0423>
the land
<0776>
mourneth
<056> (8804)_;
the pleasant places
<04999>
of the wilderness
<04057>
are dried up
<03001> (8804)_,
and their course
<04794>
is evil
<07451>_,
and their force
<01369>
[is] not right. {swearing: or, cursing} {course: or, violence}
For both prophet
<05030>
and priest
<03548>
are profane
<02610> (8804)_;
yea, in my house
<01004>
have I found
<04672> (8804)
their wickedness
<07451>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
Wherefore their way
<01870>
shall be unto them as slippery
<02519>
[ways] in the darkness
<0653>_:
they shall be driven on
<01760> (8735)_,
and fall
<05307> (8804)
therein: for I will bring
<0935> (8686)
evil
<07451>
upon them, [even] the year
<08141>
of their visitation
<06486>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
And I have seen
<07200> (8804)
folly
<08604>
in the prophets
<05030>
of Samaria
<08111>_;
they prophesied
<05012> (8694)
in Baal
<01168>_,
and caused my people
<05971>
Israel
<03478>
to err
<08582> (8686)_.
{folly: or, an absurd thing: Heb. unsavoury}
I have seen
<07200> (8804)
also in the prophets
<05030>
of Jerusalem
<03389>
an horrible thing
<08186>_:
they commit adultery
<05003> (8800)_,
and walk
<01980> (8800)
in lies
<08267>_:
they strengthen
<02388> (8765)
also the hands
<03027>
of evildoers
<07489> (8688)_,
that none
<0376>
doth return
<07725> (8804)
from his wickedness
<07451>_:
they are all of them unto me as Sodom
<05467>_,
and the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
thereof as Gomorrah
<06017>_.
{an...: or, filthiness}
Therefore thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>
concerning the prophets
<05030>_;
Behold, I will feed
<0398> (8688)
them with wormwood
<03939>_,
and make them drink
<08248> (8689)
the water
<04325>
of gall
<07219>_:
for from the prophets
<05030>
of Jerusalem
<03389>
is profaneness
<02613>
gone forth
<03318> (8804)
into all the land
<0776>_.
{profaneness: or, hypocrisy}
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
Hearken
<08085> (8799)
not unto the words
<01697>
of the prophets
<05030>
that prophesy
<05012> (8737)
unto you: they make you vain
<01891> (8688)_:
they speak
<01696> (8762)
a vision
<02377>
of their own heart
<03820>_,
[and] not out of the mouth
<06310>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
They say
<0559> (8802)
still
<0559> (8800)
unto them that despise
<05006> (8764)
me, The LORD
<03068>
hath said
<01696> (8765)_,
Ye shall have peace
<07965>_;
and they say
<0559> (8804)
unto every one that walketh
<01980> (8802)
after the imagination
<08307>
of his own heart
<03820>_,
No evil
<07451>
shall come
<0935> (8799)
upon you. {imagination: or, stubbornness}
For who hath stood
<05975> (8804)
in the counsel
<05475>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and hath perceived
<07200> (8799)
and heard
<08085> (8799)
his word
<01697>_?
who hath marked
<07181> (8689)
his word
<01697>_,
and heard
<08085> (8799)
[it]? {counsel: or, secret}
Behold, a whirlwind
<05591>
of the LORD
<03068>
is gone forth
<03318> (8804)
in fury
<02534>_,
even a grievous
<02342> (8711)
whirlwind
<05591>_:
it shall fall grievously
<02342> (8799)
upon the head
<07218>
of the wicked
<07563>_.
The anger
<0639>
of the LORD
<03068>
shall not return
<07725> (8799)_,
until he have executed
<06213> (8800)_,
and till he have performed
<06965> (8687)
the thoughts
<04209>
of his heart
<03820>_:
in the latter
<0319>
days
<03117>
ye shall consider
<0995> (8709)
it perfectly
<0998>_.
I have not sent
<07971> (8804)
these prophets
<05030>_,
yet they ran
<07323> (8804)_:
I have not spoken
<01696> (8765)
to them, yet they prophesied
<05012> (8738)_.
But if they had stood
<05975> (8804)
in my counsel
<05475>_,
and had caused my people
<05971>
to hear
<08085> (8686)
my words
<01697>_,
then they should have turned
<07725> (8686)
them from their evil
<07451>
way
<01870>_,
and from the evil
<07455>
of their doings
<04611>_.
[Am] I a God
<0430>
at hand
<07138>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
and not a God
<0430>
afar off
<07350>_?
Can any
<0376>
hide
<05641> (8735)
himself in secret places
<04565>
that I shall not see
<07200> (8799)
him? saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
Do not I fill
<04392>
heaven
<08064>
and earth
<0776>_?
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
I have heard
<08085> (8804)
what the prophets
<05030>
said
<0559> (8804)_,
that prophesy
<05012> (8737)
lies
<08267>
in my name
<08034>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
I have dreamed
<02492> (8804)_,
I have dreamed
<02492> (8804)_.
How long shall [this] be
<03426>
in the heart
<03820>
of the prophets
<05030>
that prophesy
<05012> (8737)
lies
<08267>_?
yea, [they are] prophets
<05030>
of the deceit
<08649>
of their own heart
<03820>_;
Which think
<02803> (8802)
to cause my people
<05971>
to forget
<07911> (8687)
my name
<08034>
by their dreams
<02472>
which they tell
<05608> (8762)
every man
<0376>
to his neighbour
<07453>_,
as their fathers
<01>
have forgotten
<07911> (8804)
my name
<08034>
for Baal
<01168>_.
The prophet
<05030>
that hath a dream
<02472>_,
let him tell
<05608> (8762)
a dream
<02472>_;
and he that hath my word
<01697>_,
let him speak
<01696> (8762)
my word
<01697>
faithfully
<0571>_.
What [is] the chaff
<08401>
to the wheat
<01250>_?
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
{that hath a dream: Heb. with whom is, etc}
[Is] not my word
<01697>
like
<03541>
as a fire
<0784>_?
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_;
and like a hammer
<06360>
[that] breaketh
<06327> (0)
the rock
<05553>
in pieces
<06327> (8787)_?
Therefore, behold, I [am] against the prophets
<05030>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
that steal
<01589> (8764)
my words
<01697>
every one
<0376>
from his neighbour
<07453>_.
Behold, I [am] against the prophets
<05030>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
that use
<03947> (8802)
their tongues
<03956>_,
and say
<05001> (8799)_,
He saith
<05002> (8803)_.
{that...: or, that smooth their tongues}
Behold, I [am] against them that prophesy
<05012> (8737)
false
<08267>
dreams
<02472>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
and do tell
<05608> (8762)
them, and cause my people
<05971>
to err
<08582> (8686)
by their lies
<08267>_,
and by their lightness
<06350>_;
yet I sent
<07971> (8804)
them not, nor commanded
<06680> (8765)
them: therefore they shall not profit
<03276> (8686)
this people
<05971>
at all
<03276> (8687)_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
And when this people
<05971>_,
or the prophet
<05030>_,
or a priest
<03548>_,
shall ask
<07592> (8799)
thee, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
What [is] the burden
<04853>
of the LORD
<03068>_?
thou shalt then say
<0559> (8804)
unto them, What burden
<04853>_?
I will even forsake
<05203> (8804)
you, saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
And [as for] the prophet
<05030>_,
and the priest
<03548>_,
and the people
<05971>_,
that shall say
<0559> (8799)_,
The burden
<04853>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
I will even punish
<06485> (8804)
that man
<0376>
and his house
<01004>_.
{punish: Heb. visit upon}
Thus shall ye say
<0559> (8799)
every one
<0376>
to his neighbour
<07453>_,
and every one
<0376>
to his brother
<0251>_,
What hath the LORD
<03068>
answered
<06030> (8804)_?
and, What hath the LORD
<03068>
spoken
<01696> (8765)_?
And the burden
<04853>
of the LORD
<03068>
shall ye mention
<02142> (8799)
no more: for every man's
<0376>
word
<01697>
shall be his burden
<04853>_;
for ye have perverted
<02015> (8804)
the words
<01697>
of the living
<02416>
God
<0430>_,
of the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>
our God
<0430>_.
Thus shalt thou say
<0559> (8799)
to the prophet
<05030>_,
What hath the LORD
<03068>
answered
<06030> (8804)
thee? and, What hath the LORD
<03068>
spoken
<01696> (8765)_?
But
<0518>
since ye say
<0559> (8799)_,
The burden
<04853>
of the LORD
<03068>_;
therefore thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
Because ye say
<0559> (8800)
this word
<01697>_,
The burden
<04853>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and I have sent
<07971> (8799)
unto you, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Ye shall not say
<0559> (8799)_,
The burden
<04853>
of the LORD
<03068>_;
Therefore, behold, I, even I, will utterly
<05377> (8800)
forget
<05382> (8804)
you, and I will forsake
<05203> (8804)
you, and the city
<05892>
that I gave
<05414> (8804)
you and your fathers
<01>_,
[and cast you] out of my presence
<06440>_:
And I will bring
<05414> (8804)
an everlasting
<05769>
reproach
<02781>
upon you, and a perpetual
<05769>
shame
<03640>_,
which shall not be forgotten
<07911> (8735)_.
