Jeremiah 40:1--44:30

The word
<01697>
that came to Jeremiah
<03414>
from the LORD
<03068>_,
after
<0310>
that Nebuzaradan
<05018>
the captain
<07227>
of the guard
<02876>
had let him go
<07971> (8763)
from Ramah
<07414>_,
when he had taken
<03947> (8800)
him being bound
<0631> (8803)
in chains
<0246>
among
<08432>
all that were carried away captive
<01546>
of Jerusalem
<03389>
and Judah
<03063>_,
which were carried away captive
<01540> (8716)
unto Babylon
<0894>_.
{chains: or, manicles}
And the captain
<07227>
of the guard
<02876>
took
<03947> (8799)
Jeremiah
<03414>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, The LORD
<03068>
thy God
<0430>
hath pronounced
<01696> (8765)
this evil
<07451>
upon this place
<04725>_.
Now the LORD
<03068>
hath brought
<0935> (8686)
[it], and done
<06213> (8799)
according as he hath said
<01696> (8765)_:
because ye have sinned
<02398> (8804)
against the LORD
<03068>_,
and have not obeyed
<08085> (8804)
his voice
<06963>_,
therefore this thing
<01697>
is come upon you.
And now, behold, I loose
<06605> (8765)
thee this day
<03117>
from the chains
<0246>
which [were] upon thine hand
<03027>_.
If it seem good
<02896> <05869>
unto thee to come
<0935> (8800)
with me into Babylon
<0894>_,
come
<0935> (8798)_;
and I will look well
<07760> (8799) <05869>
unto thee: but if it seem ill
<07489> (8804) <05869>
unto thee to come
<0935> (8800)
with me into Babylon
<0894>_,
forbear
<02308> (8798)_:
behold
<07200> (8798)_,
all the land
<0776>
[is] before
<06440>
thee: whither it seemeth
<0413>
good
<02896>
and convenient
<03477> <05869>
for thee to go
<03212> (8800)_,
thither go
<03212> (8798)_.
{were...: or, are upon thine hand} {I will...: Heb. I will set mine eye upon thee}
Now while he was not yet gone back
<07725> (8799)_,
[he said], Go back
<07725> (8798)
also to Gedaliah
<01436>
the son
<01121>
of Ahikam
<0296>
the son
<01121>
of Shaphan
<08227>_,
whom the king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>
hath made governor
<06485> (8689)
over the cities
<05892>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and dwell
<03427> (8798)
with him among
<08432>
the people
<05971>_:
or go
<03212> (8798)
wheresoever it seemeth convenient
<03477> <05869>
unto thee to go
<03212> (8800)_.
So the captain
<07227>
of the guard
<02876>
gave
<05414> (8799)
him victuals
<0737>
and a reward
<04864>_,
and let him go
<07971> (8762)_.
Then went
<0935> (8799)
Jeremiah
<03414>
unto Gedaliah
<01436>
the son
<01121>
of Ahikam
<0296>
to Mizpah
<04708>_;
and dwelt
<03427> (8799)
with him among
<08432>
the people
<05971>
that were left
<07604> (8737)
in the land
<0776>_.
Now when all the captains
<08269>
of the forces
<02428>
which [were] in the fields
<07704>_,
[even] they and their men
<0582>_,
heard
<08085> (8799)
that the king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>
had made Gedaliah
<01436>
the son
<01121>
of Ahikam
<0296>
governor
<06485> (8689)
in the land
<0776>_,
and had committed
<06485> (8689)
unto him men
<0582>_,
and women
<0802>_,
and children
<02945>_,
and of the poor
<01803>
of the land
<0776>_,
of them that were not carried away captive
<01540> (8717)
to Babylon
<0894>_;
Then they came
<0935> (8799)
to Gedaliah
<01436>
to Mizpah
<04708>_,
even Ishmael
<03458>
the son
<01121>
of Nethaniah
<05418>_,
and Johanan
<03110>
and Jonathan
<03129>
the sons
<01121>
of Kareah
<07143>_,
and Seraiah
<08304>
the son
<01121>
of Tanhumeth
<08576>_,
and the sons
<01121>
of Ephai
<05778>
the Netophathite
<05200>_,
and Jezaniah
<03153>
the son
<01121>
of a Maachathite
<04602>_,
they and their men
<0582>_.
And Gedaliah
<01436>
the son
<01121>
of Ahikam
<0296>
the son
<01121>
of Shaphan
<08227>
sware
<07650> (8735)
unto them and to their men
<0582>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Fear
<03372> (8799)
not to serve
<05647> (8800)
the Chaldeans
<03778>_:
dwell in
<03427> (8798)
the land
<0776>_,
and serve
<05647> (8798)
the king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>_,
and it shall be well
<03190> (8799)
with you.
As for me, behold, I will dwell
<03427> (8802)
at Mizpah
<04709>
to serve
<05975> (8800) <06440>
the Chaldeans
<03778>_,
which will come
<0935> (8799)
unto us: but ye, gather
<0622> (8798)
ye wine
<03196>_,
and summer fruits
<07019>_,
and oil
<08081>_,
and put
<07760> (8798)
[them] in your vessels
<03627>_,
and dwell
<03427> (8798)
in your cities
<05892>
that ye have taken
<08610> (8804)_.
{to serve: Heb. to stand before}
Likewise when all the Jews
<03064>
that [were] in Moab
<04124>_,
and among the Ammonites
<05983>_,
and in Edom
<0123>_,
and that [were] in all the countries
<0776>_,
heard
<08085> (8804)
that the king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>
had left
<05414> (8804)
a remnant
<07611>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and that he had set
<06485> (8689)
over them Gedaliah
<01436>
the son
<01121>
of Ahikam
<0296>
the son
<01121>
of Shaphan
<08227>_;
Even all the Jews
<03064>
returned out
<07725> (8799)
of all places
<04725>
whither they were driven
<05080> (8738)_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
to the land
<0776>
of Judah
<03063>_,
to Gedaliah
<01436>_,
unto Mizpah
<04708>_,
and gathered
<0622> (8799)
wine
<03196>
and summer fruits
<07019>
very
<03966>
much
<07235> (8687)_.
Moreover Johanan
<03110>
the son
<01121>
of Kareah
<07143>_,
and all the captains
<08269>
of the forces
<02428>
that [were] in the fields
<07704>_,
came
<0935> (8804)
to Gedaliah
<01436>
to Mizpah
<04708>_,
And said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Dost thou certainly
<03045> (8800)
know
<03045> (8799)
that Baalis
<01185>
the king
<04428>
of the Ammonites
<01121> <05983>
hath sent
<07971> (8804)
Ishmael
<03458>
the son
<01121>
of Nethaniah
<05418>
to slay
<05221> (8687) <05315>
thee? But Gedaliah
<01436>
the son
<01121>
of Ahikam
<0296>
believed
<0539> (8689)
them not. {to slay...: Heb. to strike thee in soul?}
Then Johanan
<03110>
the son
<01121>
of Kareah
<07143>
spake
<0559> (8804)
to Gedaliah
<01436>
in Mizpah
<04709>
secretly
<05643>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Let me go
<03212> (8799)_,
I pray thee, and I will slay
<05221> (8686)
Ishmael
<03458>
the son
<01121>
of Nethaniah
<05418>_,
and no man
<0376>
shall know
<03045> (8799)
[it]: wherefore should he slay
<05221> (8686) <05315>
thee, that all the Jews
<03064>
which are gathered
<06908> (8737)
unto thee should be scattered
<06327> (8738)_,
and the remnant
<07611>
in Judah
<03063>
perish
<06> (8804)_?
But Gedaliah
<01436>
the son
<01121>
of Ahikam
<0296>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Johanan
<03110>
the son
<01121>
of Kareah
<07143>_,
Thou shalt not do
<06213> (8799)
this thing
<01697>_:
for thou speakest
<01696> (8802)
falsely
<08267>
of Ishmael
<03458>_.
Now it came to pass in the seventh
<07637>
month
<02320>_,
[that] Ishmael
<03458>
the son
<01121>
of Nethaniah
<05418>
the son
<01121>
of Elishama
<0476>_,
of the seed
<02233>
royal
<04410>_,
and the princes
<07227>
of the king
<04428>_,
even ten
<06235>
men
<0582>
with him, came
<0935> (8804)
unto Gedaliah
<01436>
the son
<01121>
of Ahikam
<0296>
to Mizpah
<04709>_;
and there they did eat
<0398> (8799)
bread
<03899>
together
<03162>
in Mizpah
<04708>_.
Then arose
<06965> (8799)
Ishmael
<03458>
the son
<01121>
of Nethaniah
<05418>_,
and the ten
<06235>
men
<0582>
that were with him, and smote
<05221> (8686)
Gedaliah
<01436>
the son
<01121>
of Ahikam
<0296>
the son
<01121>
of Shaphan
<08227>
with the sword
<02719>_,
and slew
<04191> (8686)
him, whom the king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>
had made governor
<06485> (8689)
over the land
<0776>_.
Ishmael
<03458>
also slew
<05221> (8689)
all the Jews
<03064>
that were with him, [even] with Gedaliah
<01436>_,
at Mizpah
<04709>_,
and the Chaldeans
<03778>
that were found
<04672> (8738)
there, [and] the men
<0582>
of war
<04421>_.
And it came to pass the second
<08145>
day
<03117>
after he had slain
<04191> (8687)
Gedaliah
<01436>_,
and no man
<0376>
knew
<03045> (8804)
[it],
That there came
<0935> (8799)
certain
<0582>
from Shechem
<07927>_,
from Shiloh
<07887>_,
and from Samaria
<08111>_,
[even] fourscore
<08084>
men
<0376>_,
having their beards
<02206>
shaven
<01548> (8794)_,
and their clothes
<0899>
rent
<07167> (8803)_,
and having cut
<01413> (8706)
themselves, with offerings
<04503>
and incense
<03828>
in their hand
<03027>_,
to bring
<0935> (8687)
[them] to the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
And Ishmael
<03458>
the son
<01121>
of Nethaniah
<05418>
went forth
<03318> (8799)
from Mizpah
<04709>
to meet
<07125> (8800)
them, weeping
<01058> (8802)
all along
<01980> (8800)
as he went
<01980> (8802)_:
and it came to pass, as he met
<06298> (8800)
them, he said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Come
<0935> (8798)
to Gedaliah
<01436>
the son
<01121>
of Ahikam
<0296>_.
{weeping...: Heb. in going and weeping}
And it was [so], when they came
<0935> (8800)
into the midst
<08432>
of the city
<05892>_,
that Ishmael
<03458>
the son
<01121>
of Nethaniah
<05418>
slew
<07819> (8799)
them, [and cast them] into the midst
<08432>
of the pit
<0953>_,
he, and the men
<0582>
that [were] with him.
But ten
<06235>
men
<0582>
were found
<04672> (8738)
among them that said
<0559> (8799)
unto Ishmael
<03458>_,
Slay
<04191> (8686)
us not: for we have
<03426>
treasures
<04301>
in the field
<07704>_,
of wheat
<02406>_,
and of barley
<08184>_,
and of oil
<08081>_,
and of honey
<01706>_.
So he forbare
<02308> (8799)_,
and slew
<04191> (8689)
them not among
<08432>
their brethren
<0251>_.
Now the pit
<0953>
wherein Ishmael
<03458>
had cast
<07993> (8689)
all the dead bodies
<06297>
of the men
<0582>_,
whom he had slain
<05221> (8689)
because
<03027>
of Gedaliah
<01436>_,
[was] it which Asa
<0609>
the king
<04428>
had made
<06213> (8804)
for fear
<06440>
of Baasha
<01201>
king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_:
[and] Ishmael
<03458>
the son
<01121>
of Nethaniah
<05418>
filled
<04390> (8765)
it with [them that were] slain
<02491>_.
{because...: or, near Gedaliah: Heb. by the hand, or, by the side of Gedaliah}
Then Ishmael
<03458>
carried away captive
<07617> (8799)
all the residue
<07611>
of the people
<05971>
that [were] in Mizpah
<04709>_,
[even] the king's
<04428>
daughters
<01323>_,
and all the people
<05971>
that remained
<07604> (8737)
in Mizpah
<04709>_,
whom Nebuzaradan
<05018>
the captain
<07227>
of the guard
<02876>
had committed
<06485> (8689)
to Gedaliah
<01436>
the son
<01121>
of Ahikam
<0296>_:
and Ishmael
<03458>
the son
<01121>
of Nethaniah
<05418>
carried them away captive
<07617> (8799)_,
and departed
<03212> (8799)
to go over
<05674> (8800)
to the Ammonites
<01121> <05983>_.
But when Johanan
<03110>
the son
<01121>
of Kareah
<07143>_,
and all the captains
<08269>
of the forces
<02428>
that [were] with him, heard
<08085> (8799)
of all the evil
<07451>
that Ishmael
<03458>
the son
<01121>
of Nethaniah
<05418>
had done
<06213> (8804)_,
Then they took
<03947> (8799)
all the men
<0582>_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
to fight
<03898> (8736)
with Ishmael
<03458>
the son
<01121>
of Nethaniah
<05418>_,
and found
<04672> (8799)
him by the great
<07227>
waters
<04325>
that [are] in Gibeon
<01391>_.
Now it came to pass, [that] when all the people
<05971>
which [were] with Ishmael
<03458>
saw
<07200> (8800)
Johanan
<03110>
the son
<01121>
of Kareah
<07143>_,
and all the captains
<08269>
of the forces
<02428>
that [were] with him, then they were glad
<08055> (8799)_.
So all the people
<05971>
that Ishmael
<03458>
had carried away captive
<07617> (8804)
from Mizpah
<04709>
cast about
<05437> (8799)
and returned
<07725> (8799)_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
unto Johanan
<03110>
the son
<01121>
of Kareah
<07143>_.
But Ishmael
<03458>
the son
<01121>
of Nethaniah
<05418>
escaped
<04422> (8738)
from
<06440>
Johanan
<03110>
with eight
<08083>
men
<0582>_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
to the Ammonites
<01121> <05983>_.
Then took
<03947> (8799)
Johanan
<03110>
the son
<01121>
of Kareah
<07143>_,
and all the captains
<08269>
of the forces
<02428>
that [were] with him, all the remnant
<07611>
of the people
<05971>
whom he had recovered
<07725> (8689)
from Ishmael
<03458>
the son
<01121>
of Nethaniah
<05418>_,
from Mizpah
<04709>_,
after
<0310>
[that] he had slain
<05221> (8689)
Gedaliah
<01436>
the son
<01121>
of Ahikam
<0296>_,
[even] mighty
<01397>
men
<0582>
of war
<04421>_,
and the women
<0802>_,
and the children
<02945>_,
and the eunuchs
<05631>_,
whom he had brought again
<07725> (8689)
from Gibeon
<01391>_:
And they departed
<03212> (8799)_,
and dwelt in
<03427> (8799)
the habitation
<01628>
of Chimham
<03643>_,
which is by
<0681>
Bethlehem
<01035>_,
to go
<03212> (8800)
to enter
<0935> (8800)
into Egypt
<04714>_,
Because
<06440>
of the Chaldeans
<03778>_:
for they were afraid
<03372> (8804)
of them, because Ishmael
<03458>
the son
<01121>
of Nethaniah
<05418>
had slain
<05221> (8689)
Gedaliah
<01436>
the son
<01121>
of Ahikam
<0296>_,
whom the king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>
made governor
<06485> (8689)
in the land
<0776>_.
Then all the captains
<08269>
of the forces
<02428>_,
and Johanan
<03110>
the son
<01121>
of Kareah
<07143>_,
and Jezaniah
<03153>
the son
<01121>
of Hoshaiah
<01955>_,
and all the people
<05971>
from the least
<06996>
even unto the greatest
<01419>_,
came near
<05066> (8799)_,
And said
<0559> (8799)
unto Jeremiah
<03414>
the prophet
<05030>_,
Let, we beseech thee, our supplication
<08467>
be accepted
<05307> (8799)
before
<06440>
thee, and pray
<06419> (8690)
for us unto the LORD
<03068>
thy God
<0430>_,
[even] for all this remnant
<07611>_;
(for we are left
<07604> (8738)
[but] a few
<04592>
of many
<07235> (8687)_,
as thine eyes
<05869>
do behold
<07200> (8802)
us:) {Let...: or, Let our supplication fall before thee}
That the LORD
<03068>
thy God
<0430>
may shew
<05046> (8686)
us the way
<01870>
wherein we may walk
<03212> (8799)_,
and the thing
<01697>
that we may do
<06213> (8799)_.
Then Jeremiah
<03414>
the prophet
<05030>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, I have heard
<08085> (8804)
[you]; behold, I will pray
<06419> (8693)
unto the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>
according to your words
<01697>_;
and it shall come to pass, [that] whatsoever thing
<01697>
the LORD
<03068>
shall answer
<06030> (8799)
you, I will declare
<05046> (8686)
[it] unto you; I will keep
<04513> (0)
nothing
<01697>
back
<04513> (8799)
from you.
Then they said
<0559> (8804)
to Jeremiah
<03414>_,
The LORD
<03068>
be a true
<0571>
and faithful
<0539> (8737)
witness
<05707>
between us, if we do
<06213> (8799)
not even according to all things
<01697>
for the which the LORD
<03068>
thy God
<0430>
shall send
<07971> (8799)
thee to us.
Whether [it be] good
<02896>_,
or whether [it be] evil
<07451>_,
we will obey
<08085> (8799)
the voice
<06963>
of the LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>_,
to whom we
<0580>
send
<07971> (8802)
thee; that it may be well
<03190> (8799)
with us, when we obey
<08085> (8799)
the voice
<06963>
of the LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>_.
And it came to pass after
<07093>
ten
<06235>
days
<03117>_,
that the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
came unto Jeremiah
<03414>_.
Then called
<07121> (8799)
he Johanan
<03110>
the son
<01121>
of Kareah
<07143>_,
and all the captains
<08269>
of the forces
<02428>
which [were] with him, and all the people
<05971>
from the least
<06996>
even to the greatest
<01419>_,
And said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
unto whom ye sent
<07971> (8804)
me to present
<05307> (8687)
your supplication
<08467>
before
<06440>
him;
If ye will still
<07725> (8800)
abide
<03427> (8799)
in this land
<0776>_,
then will I build
<01129> (8804)
you, and not pull [you] down
<02040> (8799)_,
and I will plant
<05193> (8804)
you, and not pluck [you] up
<05428> (8799)_:
for I repent
<05162> (8738)
me of the evil
<07451>
that I have done
<06213> (8804)
unto you.
Be not afraid
<03372> (8799)
of
<06440>
the king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>_,
of whom
<06440>
ye are afraid
<03373>_;
be not afraid
<03372> (8799)
of him, saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_:
for I [am] with you to save
<03467> (8687)
you, and to deliver
<05337> (8687)
you from his hand
<03027>_.
And I will shew
<05414> (8799)
mercies
<07356>
unto you, that he may have mercy
<07355> (8765)
upon you, and cause you to return
<07725> (8689)
to your own land
<0127>_.
But if ye say
<0559> (8802)_,
We will not dwell
<03427> (8799)
in this land
<0776>_,
neither obey
<08085> (8800)
the voice
<06963>
of the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>_,
Saying
<0559> (8800)_,
No; but we will go
<0935> (8799)
into the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_,
where we shall see
<07200> (8799)
no war
<04421>_,
nor hear
<08085> (8799)
the sound
<06963>
of the trumpet
<07782>_,
nor have hunger
<07456> (8799)
of bread
<03899>_;
and there will we dwell
<03427> (8799)_:
And now therefore hear
<08085> (8798)
the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
ye remnant
<07611>
of Judah
<03063>_;
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_;
If ye wholly
<07760> (8800)
set
<07760> (8799)
your faces
<06440>
to enter
<0935> (8800)
into Egypt
<04714>_,
and go
<0935> (8804)
to sojourn
<01481> (8800)
there;
Then it shall come to pass, [that] the sword
<02719>_,
which ye feared
<03373>_,
shall overtake
<05381> (8686)
you there in the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_,
and the famine
<07458>_,
whereof ye were afraid
<01672> (8802)_,
shall follow close
<01692> (8799)
after
<0310>
you there in Egypt
<04714>_;
and there ye shall die
<04191> (8799)_.
{shall follow...: Heb. shall cleave after you}
So shall it be with all the men
<0582>
that set
<07760> (8804)
their faces
<06440>
to go
<0935> (8800)
into Egypt
<04714>
to sojourn
<01481> (8800)
there; they shall die
<04191> (8799)
by the sword
<02719>_,
by the famine
<07458>_,
and by the pestilence
<01698>_:
and none of them shall remain
<08300>
or escape
<06412>
from
<06440>
the evil
<07451>
that I will bring
<0935> (8688)
upon them. {So...: Heb. So shall all the men be}
For thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_;
As mine anger
<0639>
and my fury
<02534>
hath been poured forth
<05413> (8738)
upon the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of Jerusalem
<03389>_;
so shall my fury
<02534>
be poured forth
<05413> (8799)
upon you, when ye shall enter
<0935> (8800)
into Egypt
<04714>_:
and ye shall be an execration
<0423>_,
and an astonishment
<08047>_,
and a curse
<07045>_,
and a reproach
<02781>_;
and ye shall see
<07200> (8799)
this place
<04725>
no more.
The LORD
<03068>
hath said
<01696> (8765)
concerning you, O ye remnant
<07611>
of Judah
<03063>_;
Go
<0935> (8799)
ye not into Egypt
<04714>_:
know
<03045> (8799)
certainly
<03045> (8800)
that I have admonished
<05749> (8689)
you this day
<03117>_.
{admonished...: Heb. testified against you}
For ye dissembled
<08582> (8689)
in your hearts
<05315>_,
when ye sent
<07971> (8804)
me unto the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Pray
<06419> (8690)
for us unto the LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>_;
and according unto all that the LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>
shall say
<0559> (8799)_,
so declare
<05046> (8685)
unto us, and we will do
<06213> (8804)
[it]. {ye dissembled...: or, ye have used deceit against your souls}
And [now] I have this day
<03117>
declared
<05046> (8686)
[it] to you; but ye have not obeyed
<08085> (8804)
the voice
<06963>
of the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>_,
nor any [thing] for the which he hath sent
<07971> (8804)
me unto you.
Now therefore know
<03045> (8799)
certainly
<03045> (8800)
that ye shall die
<04191> (8799)
by the sword
<02719>_,
by the famine
<07458>_,
and by the pestilence
<01698>_,
in the place
<04725>
whither ye desire
<02654> (8804)
to go
<0935> (8800)
[and] to sojourn
<01481> (8800)_.
{to go...: or, to go to sojourn}
And it came to pass, [that] when Jeremiah
<03414>
had made an end
<03615> (8763)
of speaking
<01696> (8763)
unto all the people
<05971>
all the words
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
their God
<0430>_,
for which the LORD
<03068>
their God
<0430>
had sent
<07971> (8804)
him to them, [even] all these words
<01697>_,
Then spake
<0559> (8799)
Azariah
<05838>
the son
<01121>
of Hoshaiah
<01955>_,
and Johanan
<03110>
the son
<01121>
of Kareah
<07143>_,
and all the proud
<02086>
men
<0582>_,
saying
<0559> (8802)
unto Jeremiah
<03414>_,
Thou speakest
<01696> (8764)
falsely
<08267>_:
the LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>
hath not sent
<07971> (8804)
thee to say
<0559> (8800)_,
Go
<0935> (8799)
not into Egypt
<04714>
to sojourn
<01481> (8800)
there:
But Baruch
<01263>
the son
<01121>
of Neriah
<05374>
setteth thee on
<05496> (8688)
against us, for to
<04616>
deliver
<05414> (8800)
us into the hand
<03027>
of the Chaldeans
<03778>_,
that they might put us to death
<04191> (8687)_,
and carry us away captives
<01540> (8687)
into Babylon
<0894>_.
So Johanan
<03110>
the son
<01121>
of Kareah
<07143>_,
and all the captains
<08269>
of the forces
<02428>_,
and all the people
<05971>_,
obeyed
<08085> (8804)
not the voice
<06963>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
to dwell
<03427> (8800)
in the land
<0776>
of Judah
<03063>_.
But Johanan
<03110>
the son
<01121>
of Kareah
<07143>_,
and all the captains
<08269>
of the forces
<02428>_,
took
<03947> (8799)
all the remnant
<07611>
of Judah
<03063>_,
that were returned
<07725> (8804)
from all nations
<01471>_,
whither they had been driven
<05080> (8738)_,
to dwell
<01481> (8800)
in the land
<0776>
of Judah
<03063>_;
[Even] men
<01397>_,
and women
<0802>_,
and children
<02945>_,
and the king's
<04428>
daughters
<01323>_,
and every person
<05315>
that Nebuzaradan
<05018>
the captain
<07227>
of the guard
<02876>
had left
<03240> (8689)
with Gedaliah
<01436>
the son
<01121>
of Ahikam
<0296>
the son
<01121>
of Shaphan
<08227>_,
and Jeremiah
<03414>
the prophet
<05030>_,
and Baruch
<01263>
the son
<01121>
of Neriah
<05374>_.
So they came
<0935> (8799)
into the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_:
for they obeyed
<08085> (8804)
not the voice
<06963>
of the LORD
<03068>_:
thus came
<0935> (8799)
they [even] to Tahpanhes
<08471>_.
Then came the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
unto Jeremiah
<03414>
in Tahpanhes
<08471>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Take
<03947> (8798)
great
<01419>
stones
<068>
in thine hand
<03027>_,
and hide
<02934> (8804)
them in the clay
<04423>
in the brickkiln
<04404>_,
which [is] at the entry
<06607>
of Pharaoh's
<06547>
house
<01004>
in Tahpanhes
<08471>_,
in the sight
<05869>
of the men
<0582>
of Judah
<03064>_;
And say
<0559> (8804)
unto them, Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_;
Behold, I will send
<07971> (8802)
and take
<03947> (8804)
Nebuchadrezzar
<05019>
the king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>_,
my servant
<05650>_,
and will set
<07760> (8804)
his throne
<03678>
upon
<04605>
these stones
<068>
that I have hid
<02934> (8804)_;
and he shall spread
<05186> (8804)
his royal pavilion
<08237>
over them.
And when he cometh
<0935> (8804)_,
he shall smite
<05221> (8689)
the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_,
[and deliver] such [as are] for death
<04194>
to death
<04194>_;
and such [as are] for captivity
<07628>
to captivity
<07628>_;
and such [as are] for the sword
<02719>
to the sword
<02719>_.
And I will kindle
<03341> (8689)
a fire
<0784>
in the houses
<01004>
of the gods
<0430>
of Egypt
<04714>_;
and he shall burn
<08313> (8804)
them, and carry them away captives
<07617> (8804)_:
and he shall array
<05844> (8804)
himself with the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_,
as a shepherd
<07462> (8802)
putteth on
<05844> (8799)
his garment
<0899>_;
and he shall go forth
<03318> (8804)
from thence in peace
<07965>_.
He shall break
<07665> (8765)
also the images
<04676>
of Bethshemesh
<01053>_,
that [is] in the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_;
and the houses
<01004>
of the gods
<0430>
of the Egyptians
<04714>
shall he burn
<08313> (8799)
with fire
<0784>_.
{images: Heb. statues, or, standing images} {Bethshemesh: or, The house of the sun}
The word
<01697>
that came to Jeremiah
<03414>
concerning all the Jews
<03064>
which dwell
<03427> (8802)
in the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_,
which dwell
<03427> (8802)
at Migdol
<04024>_,
and at Tahpanhes
<08471>_,
and at Noph
<05297>_,
and in the country
<0776>
of Pathros
<06624>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_;
Ye have seen
<07200> (8804)
all the evil
<07451>
that I have brought
<0935> (8689)
upon Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and upon all the cities
<05892>
of Judah
<03063>_;
and, behold, this day
<03117>
they [are] a desolation
<02723>_,
and no man dwelleth
<03427> (8802)
therein,
Because
<06440>
of their wickedness
<07451>
which they have committed
<06213> (8804)
to provoke me to anger
<03707> (8687)_,
in that they went
<03212> (8800)
to burn incense
<06999> (8763)_,
[and] to serve
<05647> (8800)
other
<0312>
gods
<0430>_,
whom they knew
<03045> (8804)
not, [neither] they, ye, nor your fathers
<01>_.
Howbeit I sent
<07971> (8799)
unto you all my servants
<05650>
the prophets
<05030>_,
rising early
<07925> (8687)
and sending
<07971> (8800)
[them], saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Oh, do
<06213> (8799)
not this abominable
<08441>
thing
<01697>
that I hate
<08130> (8804)_.
But they hearkened
<08085> (8804)
not, nor inclined
<05186> (8689)
their ear
<0241>
to turn
<07725> (8800)
from their wickedness
<07451>_,
to burn no incense
<06999> (8763)
unto other
<0312>
gods
<0430>_.
Wherefore my fury
<02534>
and mine anger
<0639>
was poured forth
<05413> (8799)_,
and was kindled
<01197> (8799)
in the cities
<05892>
of Judah
<03063>
and in the streets
<02351>
of Jerusalem
<03389>_;
and they are wasted
<02723>
[and] desolate
<08077>_,
as at this day
<03117>_.
Therefore now thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
the God
<0430>
of hosts
<06635>_,
the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_;
Wherefore commit
<06213> (8802)
ye [this] great
<01419>
evil
<07451>
against your souls
<05315>_,
to cut off
<03772> (8687)
from you man
<0376>
and woman
<0802>_,
child
<05768>
and suckling
<03243> (8802)_,
out
<08432>
of Judah
<03063>_,
to leave
<03498> (8687)
you none to remain
<07611>_;
{out...: Heb. out of the midst of Judah}
In that ye provoke me unto wrath
<03707> (8687)
with the works
<04639>
of your hands
<03027>_,
burning incense
<06999> (8763)
unto other
<0312>
gods
<0430>
in the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_,
whither ye be gone
<0935> (8802)
to dwell
<01481> (8800)_,
that ye might cut yourselves off
<03772> (8687)_,
and that ye might be a curse
<07045>
and a reproach
<02781>
among all the nations
<01471>
of the earth
<0776>_?
Have ye forgotten
<07911> (8804)
the wickedness
<07451>
of your fathers
<01>_,
and the wickedness
<07451>
of the kings
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and the wickedness
<07451>
of their wives
<0802>_,
and your own wickedness
<07451>_,
and the wickedness
<07451>
of your wives
<0802>_,
which they have committed
<06213> (8804)
in the land
<0776>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and in the streets
<02351>
of Jerusalem
<03389>_?
{wickedness...: Heb. wickednesses, or, punishments, etc}
They are not humbled
<01792> (8795)
[even] unto this day
<03117>_,
neither have they feared
<03372> (8804)_,
nor walked
<01980> (8804)
in my law
<08451>_,
nor in my statutes
<02708>_,
that I set
<05414> (8804)
before
<06440>
you and before
<06440>
your fathers
<01>_.
{humbled: Heb. contrite}
Therefore thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_;
Behold, I will set
<07760> (8802)
my face
<06440>
against you for evil
<07451>_,
and to cut off
<03772> (8687)
all Judah
<03063>_.
And I will take
<03947> (8804)
the remnant
<07611>
of Judah
<03063>_,
that have set
<07760> (8804)
their faces
<06440>
to go
<0935> (8800)
into the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>
to sojourn
<01481> (8800)
there, and they shall all be consumed
<08552> (8804)_,
[and] fall
<05307> (8799)
in the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_;
they shall [even] be consumed
<08552> (8735)
by the sword
<02719>
[and] by the famine
<07458>_:
they shall die
<04191> (8799)_,
from the least
<06996>
even unto the greatest
<01419>_,
by the sword
<02719>
and by the famine
<07458>_:
and they shall be an execration
<0423>_,
[and] an astonishment
<08047>_,
and a curse
<07045>_,
and a reproach
<02781>_.
For I will punish
<06485> (8804)
them that dwell
<03427> (8802)
in the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_,
as I have punished
<06485> (8804)
Jerusalem
<03389>_,
by the sword
<02719>_,
by the famine
<07458>_,
and by the pestilence
<01698>_:
So that none of the remnant
<07611>
of Judah
<03063>_,
which are gone
<0935> (8802)
into the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>
to sojourn
<01481> (8800)
there, shall escape
<06412>
or remain
<08300>_,
that they should return
<07725> (8800)
into the land
<0776>
of Judah
<03063>_,
to the which they have
<05375> (8764)
a desire
<05315>
to return
<07725> (8800)
to dwell
<03427> (8800)
there: for none shall return
<07725> (8799)
but such as shall escape
<06405>_.
{have...: Heb. lift up their soul}
Then all the men
<0582>
which knew
<03045> (8802)
that their wives
<0802>
had burned incense
<06999> (8764)
unto other
<0312>
gods
<0430>_,
and all the women
<0802>
that stood by
<05975> (8802)_,
a great
<01419>
multitude
<06951>_,
even all the people
<05971>
that dwelt
<03427> (8802)
in the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_,
in Pathros
<06624>_,
answered
<06030> (8799)
Jeremiah
<03414>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
[As for] the word
<01697>
that thou hast spoken
<01696> (8765)
unto us in the name
<08034>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
we will not hearken
<08085> (8802)
unto thee.
But we will certainly
<06213> (8800)
do
<06213> (8799)
whatsoever thing
<01697>
goeth forth
<03318> (8804)
out of our own mouth
<06310>_,
to burn incense
<06999> (8763)
unto the queen
<04446>
of heaven
<08064>_,
and to pour out
<05258> (8687)
drink offerings
<05262>
unto her, as we have done
<06213> (8804)_,
we, and our fathers
<01>_,
our kings
<04428>_,
and our princes
<08269>_,
in the cities
<05892>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and in the streets
<02351>
of Jerusalem
<03389>_:
for [then] had we plenty
<07646> (8799)
of victuals
<03899>_,
and were well
<02896>_,
and saw
<07200> (8804)
no evil
<07451>_.
{queen...: or, frame of heaven} {victuals: Heb. bread}
But since we left off
<02308> (8804)
to burn incense
<06999> (8763)
to the queen
<04446>
of heaven
<08064>_,
and to pour out
<05258> (8687)
drink offerings
<05262>
unto her, we have wanted
<02637> (8804)
all [things], and have been consumed
<08552> (8804)
by the sword
<02719>
and by the famine
<07458>_.
And when we burned incense
<06999> (8764)
to the queen
<04446>
of heaven
<08064>_,
and poured out
<05258> (8687)
drink offerings
<05262>
unto her, did we make
<06213> (8804)
her cakes
<03561>
to worship
<06087> (8687)
her, and pour out
<05258> (8687)
drink offerings
<05262>
unto her, without
<01107>
our men
<0582>_?
{men: or, husbands?}
Then Jeremiah
<03414>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto all the people
<05971>_,
to the men
<01397>_,
and to the women
<0802>_,
and to all the people
<05971>
which had given him [that] answer
<01697> <06030> (8802)_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
The incense
<07002>
that ye burned
<06999> (8765)
in the cities
<05892>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and in the streets
<02351>
of Jerusalem
<03389>_,
ye, and your fathers
<01>_,
your kings
<04428>_,
and your princes
<08269>_,
and the people
<05971>
of the land
<0776>_,
did not the LORD
<03068>
remember
<02142> (8804)
them, and came
<05927> (8799)
it [not] into his mind
<03820>_?
So that the LORD
<03068>
could
<03201> (8799)
no longer bear
<05375> (8800)_,
because
<06440>
of the evil
<07455>
of your doings
<04611>_,
[and] because
<06440>
of the abominations
<08441>
which ye have committed
<06213> (8804)_;
therefore is your land
<0776>
a desolation
<02723>_,
and an astonishment
<08047>_,
and a curse
<07045>_,
without an inhabitant
<03427> (8802)_,
as at this day
<03117>_.
Because
<06440> <0834>
ye have burned incense
<06999> (8765)_,
and because ye have sinned
<02398> (8804)
against the LORD
<03068>_,
and have not obeyed
<08085> (8804)
the voice
<06963>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
nor walked
<01980> (8804)
in his law
<08451>_,
nor in his statutes
<02708>_,
nor in his testimonies
<05715>_;
therefore this evil
<07451>
is happened
<07122> (8804)
unto you, as at this day
<03117>_.
Moreover Jeremiah
<03414>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto all the people
<05971>_,
and to all the women
<0802>_,
Hear
<08085> (8798)
the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
all Judah
<03063>
that [are] in the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_:
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_;
Ye and your wives
<0802>
have both spoken
<01696> (8762)
with your mouths
<06310>_,
and fulfilled
<04390> (8765)
with your hand
<03027>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
We will surely
<06213> (8800)
perform
<06213> (8799)
our vows
<05088>
that we have vowed
<05087> (8804)_,
to burn incense
<06999> (8763)
to the queen
<04446>
of heaven
<08064>_,
and to pour out
<05258> (8687)
drink offerings
<05262>
unto her: ye will surely
<06965> (8687)
accomplish
<06965> (8686)
your vows
<05088>_,
and surely
<06213> (8800)
perform
<06213> (8799)
your vows
<05088>_.
Therefore hear
<08085> (8798)
ye the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
all Judah
<03063>
that dwell
<03427> (8802)
in the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_;
Behold, I have sworn
<07650> (8738)
by my great
<01419>
name
<08034>_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
that my name
<08034>
shall no more be named
<07121> (8737)
in the mouth
<06310>
of any man
<0376>
of Judah
<03063>
in all the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_,
saying
<0559> (8802)_,
The Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>
liveth
<02416>_.
Behold, I will watch
<08245> (8802)
over them for evil
<07451>_,
and not for good
<02896>_:
and all the men
<0376>
of Judah
<03063>
that [are] in the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>
shall be consumed
<08552> (8804)
by the sword
<02719>
and by the famine
<07458>_,
until there be an end
<03615> (8800)
of them.
Yet a small
<04962>
number
<04557>
that escape
<06412>
the sword
<02719>
shall return out
<07725> (8799)
of the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>
into the land
<0776>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and all the remnant
<07611>
of Judah
<03063>_,
that are gone
<0935> (8802)
into the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>
to sojourn
<01481> (8800)
there, shall know
<03045> (8804)
whose words
<01697>
shall stand
<06965> (8799)_,
mine, or theirs. {mine...: Heb. from me, or, from them}
And this [shall be] a sign
<0226>
unto you, saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
that I will punish
<06485> (8802)
you in this place
<04725>_,
that ye may know
<03045> (8799)
that my words
<01697>
shall surely
<06965> (8800)
stand
<06965> (8799)
against you for evil
<07451>_:
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
Behold, I will give
<05414> (8802)
Pharaohhophra
<06548>
king
<04428>
of Egypt
<04714>
into the hand
<03027>
of his enemies
<0341> (8802)_,
and into the hand
<03027>
of them that seek
<01245> (8764)
his life
<05315>_;
as I gave
<05414> (8804)
Zedekiah
<06667>
king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>
into the hand
<03027>
of Nebuchadrezzar
<05019>
king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>_,
his enemy
<0341> (8802)_,
and that sought
<01245> (8764)
his life
<05315>_.
