Jeremiah 29:1-10

Now these [are] the words
<01697>
of the letter
<05612>
that Jeremiah
<03414>
the prophet
<05030>
sent
<07971> (8804)
from Jerusalem
<03389>
unto the residue
<03499>
of the elders
<02205>
which were carried away captives
<01473>_,
and to the priests
<03548>_,
and to the prophets
<05030>_,
and to all the people
<05971>
whom Nebuchadnezzar
<05019>
had carried away captive
<01540> (8689)
from Jerusalem
<03389>
to Babylon
<0894>_;
(After
<0310>
that Jeconiah
<03204>
the king
<04428>_,
and the queen
<01377>_,
and the eunuchs
<05631>_,
the princes
<08269>
of Judah
<03063>
and Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and the carpenters
<02796>_,
and the smiths
<04525>_,
were departed
<03318> (8800)
from Jerusalem
<03389>;)
{eunuchs: or, chamberlains}
By the hand
<03027>
of Elasah
<0501>
the son
<01121>
of Shaphan
<08227>_,
and Gemariah
<01587>
the son
<01121>
of Hilkiah
<02518>_,
(whom Zedekiah
<06667>
king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>
sent
<07971> (8804)
unto Babylon
<0894>
to Nebuchadnezzar
<05019>
king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>)
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
unto all that are carried away captives
<01473>_,
whom I have caused to be carried away
<01540> (8689)
from Jerusalem
<03389>
unto Babylon
<0894>_;
Build
<01129> (8798)
ye houses
<01004>_,
and dwell
<03427> (8798)
[in them]; and plant
<05193> (8798)
gardens
<01593>_,
and eat
<0398> (8798)
the fruit
<06529>
of them;
Take
<03947> (8798)
ye wives
<0802>_,
and beget
<03205> (8685)
sons
<01121>
and daughters
<01323>_;
and take
<03947> (8798)
wives
<0802>
for your sons
<01121>_,
and give
<05414> (8798)
your daughters
<01323>
to husbands
<0582>_,
that they may bear
<03205> (8799)
sons
<01121>
and daughters
<01121>_;
that ye may be increased
<07235> (8798)
there, and not diminished
<04591> (8799)_.
And seek
<01875> (8798)
the peace
<07965>
of the city
<05892>
whither I have caused you to be carried away captives
<01540> (8689)_,
and pray
<06419> (8690)
unto the LORD
<03068>
for it: for in the peace
<07965>
thereof shall ye have peace
<07965>_.
For thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_;
Let not your prophets
<05030>
and your diviners
<07080> (8802)_,
that [be] in the midst
<07130>
of you, deceive
<05377> (8686)
you, neither hearken
<08085> (8799)
to your dreams
<02472>
which ye cause to be dreamed
<02492> (8688)_.
For they prophesy
<05012> (8737)
falsely
<08267>
unto you in my name
<08034>_:
I have not sent
<07971> (8804)
them, saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
{falsely: Heb. in a lie}
For thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
That after
<06310>
seventy
<07657>
years
<08141>
be accomplished
<04390> (8800)
at Babylon
<0894>
I will visit
<06485> (8799)
you, and perform
<06965> (8689)
my good
<02896>
word
<01697>
toward you, in causing you to return
<07725> (8687)
to this place
<04725>_.
