Jeremiah 50:1--51:23

The word
<01697>
that the LORD
<03068>
spake
<01696> (8765)
against Babylon
<0894>
[and] against the land
<0776>
of the Chaldeans
<03778>
by
<03027>
Jeremiah
<03414>
the prophet
<05030>_.
{by...: Heb. by the hand of Jeremiah}
Declare
<05046> (8685)
ye among the nations
<01471>_,
and publish
<08085> (8685)_,
and set up
<05375> (8798)
a standard
<05251>_;
publish
<08085> (8685)_,
[and] conceal
<03582> (8762)
not: say
<0559> (8798)_,
Babylon
<0894>
is taken
<03920> (8738)_,
Bel
<01078>
is confounded
<03001> (8689)_,
Merodach
<04781>
is broken in pieces
<02865> (8804)_;
her idols
<06091>
are confounded
<03001> (8689)_,
her images
<01544>
are broken in pieces
<02865> (8804)_.
{set up: Heb. lift up}
For out of the north
<06828>
there cometh up
<05927> (8804)
a nation
<01471>
against her, which shall make
<07896> (8799)
her land
<0776>
desolate
<08047>_,
and none shall dwell
<03427> (8802)
therein: they shall remove
<05110> (8804)_,
they shall depart
<01980> (8804)_,
both man
<0120>
and beast
<0929>_.
In those days
<03117>_,
and in that time
<06256>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
shall come
<0935> (8799)_,
they and the children
<01121>
of Judah
<03063>
together
<03162>_,
going
<01980> (8800)
and weeping
<01058> (8800)_:
they shall go
<03212> (8799)_,
and seek
<01245> (8762)
the LORD
<03068>
their God
<0430>_.
They shall ask
<07592> (8799)
the way
<01870>
to Zion
<06726>
with their faces
<06440>
thitherward
<02008>_,
[saying], Come
<0935> (8798)_,
and let us join
<03867> (8738)
ourselves to the LORD
<03068>
in a perpetual
<05769>
covenant
<01285>
[that] shall not be forgotten
<07911> (8735)_.
My people
<05971>
hath been lost
<06> (8802)
sheep
<06629>_:
their shepherds
<07462> (8802)
have caused them to go astray
<08582> (8689)_,
they have turned them away
<07725> (8790) (8675) <07726>
[on] the mountains
<02022>_:
they have gone
<01980> (8804)
from mountain
<02022>
to hill
<01389>_,
they have forgotten
<07911> (8804)
their restingplace
<07258>_.
{restingplace: Heb. place to lie down in}
All that found
<04672> (8802)
them have devoured
<0398> (8804)
them: and their adversaries
<06862>
said
<0559> (8804)_,
We offend
<0816> (8799)
not, because they have sinned
<02398> (8804)
against the LORD
<03068>_,
the habitation
<05116>
of justice
<06664>_,
even the LORD
<03068>_,
the hope
<04723>
of their fathers
<01>_.
Remove
<05110> (8798)
out of the midst
<08432>
of Babylon
<0894>_,
and go forth
<03318> (8798) (8675) <03318> (8799)
out of the land
<0776>
of the Chaldeans
<03778>_,
and be as the he goats
<06260>
before
<06440>
the flocks
<06629>_.
For, lo, I will raise
<05782> (8688)
and cause to come up
<05927> (8688)
against Babylon
<0894>
an assembly
<06951>
of great
<01419>
nations
<01471>
from the north
<06828>
country
<0776>_:
and they shall set themselves in array
<06186> (8804)
against her; from thence she shall be taken
<03920> (8735)_:
their arrows
<02671>
[shall be] as of a mighty
<01368>
expert man
<07919> (8688) (8676) <07921> (8688)_;
none shall return
<07725> (8799)
in vain
<07387>_.
{expert...: or, destroyer}
And Chaldea
<03778>
shall be a spoil
<07998>_:
all that spoil
<07997> (8802)
her shall be satisfied
<07646> (8799)_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
Because ye were glad
<08055> (8799)_,
because ye rejoiced
<05937> (8799)_,
O ye destroyers
<08154> (8802)
of mine heritage
<05159>_,
because ye are grown fat
<06335> (8799)
as the heifer
<05697>
at grass
<01877> (8676) <01758> (8801)_,
and bellow
<06670> (8799)
as bulls
<047>_;
{fat: Heb. big, or, corpulent} {bellow...: or, neigh as steeds}
Your mother
<0517>
shall be sore
<03966>
confounded
<0954> (8804)_;
she that bare
<03205> (8802)
you shall be ashamed
<02659> (8804)_:
behold, the hindermost
<0319>
of the nations
<01471>
[shall be] a wilderness
<04057>_,
a dry land
<06723>_,
and a desert
<06160>_.
Because of the wrath
<07110>
of the LORD
<03068>
it shall not be inhabited
<03427> (8799)_,
but it shall be wholly desolate
<08077>_:
every one that goeth
<05674> (8802)
by Babylon
<0894>
shall be astonished
<08074> (8799)_,
and hiss
<08319> (8799)
at all her plagues
<04347>_.
Put yourselves in array
<06186> (8798)
against Babylon
<0894>
round about
<05439>_:
all ye that bend
<01869> (8802)
the bow
<07198>_,
shoot
<03034> (8798)
at her, spare
<02550> (8799)
no arrows
<02671>_:
for she hath sinned
<02398> (8804)
against the LORD
<03068>_.
Shout
<07321> (8685)
against her round about
<05439>_:
she hath given
<05414> (8804)
her hand
<03027>_:
her foundations
<0803>
are fallen
<05307> (8804)_,
her walls
<02346>
are thrown down
<02040> (8738)_:
for it [is] the vengeance
<05360>
of the LORD
<03068>_:
take vengeance
<05358> (8734)
upon her; as she hath done
<06213> (8804)_,
do
<06213> (8798)
unto her.
Cut off
<03772> (8798)
the sower
<02232> (8802)
from Babylon
<0894>_,
and him that handleth
<08610> (8802)
the sickle
<04038>
in the time
<06256>
of harvest
<07105>_:
for fear
<06440>
of the oppressing
<03238> (8802)
sword
<02719>
they shall turn
<06437> (8799)
every one
<0376>
to his people
<05971>_,
and they shall flee
<05127> (8799)
every one
<0376>
to his own land
<0776>_.
{sickle; or, scythe}
Israel
<03478>
[is] a scattered
<06340> (8801)
sheep
<07716>_;
the lions
<0738>
have driven [him] away
<05080> (8689)_:
first
<07223>
the king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>
hath devoured
<0398> (8804)
him; and last
<0314>
this Nebuchadrezzar
<05019>
king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>
hath broken his bones
<06105> (8765)_.
Therefore thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_;
Behold, I will punish
<06485> (8802)
the king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>
and his land
<0776>_,
as I have punished
<06485> (8804)
the king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>_.
And I will bring
<07725> (0)
Israel
<03478>
again
<07725> (8790)
to his habitation
<05116>_,
and he shall feed
<07462> (8804)
on Carmel
<03760>
and Bashan
<01316>_,
and his soul
<05315>
shall be satisfied
<07646> (8799)
upon mount
<02022>
Ephraim
<0669>
and Gilead
<01568>_.
In those days
<03117>_,
and in that time
<06256>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
the iniquity
<05771>
of Israel
<03478>
shall be sought for
<01245> (8792)_,
and [there shall be] none; and the sins
<02403>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and they shall not be found
<04672> (8735)_:
for I will pardon
<05545> (8799)
them whom I reserve
<07604> (8686)_.
Go up
<05927> (8798)
against the land
<0776>
of Merathaim
<04850>_,
[even] against it, and against the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of Pekod
<06489>_:
waste
<02717> (8798)
and utterly destroy
<02763> (8687)
after
<0310>
them, saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
and do
<06213> (8798)
according to all that I have commanded
<06680> (8765)
thee. {of Merathaim: or, of the rebels} {Pekod: or, Visitation}
A sound
<06963>
of battle
<04421>
[is] in the land
<0776>_,
and of great
<01419>
destruction
<07667>_.
How is the hammer
<06360>
of the whole earth
<0776>
cut asunder
<01438> (8738)
and broken
<07665> (8735)_!
how is Babylon
<0894>
become a desolation
<08047>
among the nations
<01471>_!
I have laid a snare
<03369> (8804)
for thee, and thou art also taken
<03920> (8738)_,
O Babylon
<0894>_,
and thou wast not aware
<03045> (8804)_:
thou art found
<04672> (8738)_,
and also caught
<08610> (8738)_,
because thou hast striven
<01624> (8694)
against the LORD
<03068>_.
The LORD
<03068>
hath opened
<06605> (8804)
his armoury
<0214>_,
and hath brought forth
<03318> (8686)
the weapons
<03627>
of his indignation
<02195>_:
for this [is] the work
<04399>
of the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>
of hosts
<06635>
in the land
<0776>
of the Chaldeans
<03778>_.
Come
<0935> (8798)
against her from the utmost border
<07093>_,
open
<06605> (8798)
her storehouses
<03965>_:
cast her up
<05549> (8798)
as heaps
<06194>_,
and destroy her utterly
<02763> (8685)_:
let nothing of her be left
<07611>_.
{from...: Heb. from the end} {cast...: or, tread her}
Slay
<02717> (8798)
all her bullocks
<06499>_;
let them go down
<03381> (8799)
to the slaughter
<02874>_:
woe
<01945>
unto them! for their day
<03117>
is come
<0935> (8802)_,
the time
<06256>
of their visitation
<06486>_.
The voice
<06963>
of them that flee
<05127> (8801)
and escape out
<06405>
of the land
<0776>
of Babylon
<0894>_,
to declare
<05046> (8687)
in Zion
<06726>
the vengeance
<05360>
of the LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>_,
the vengeance
<05360>
of his temple
<01964>_.
Call together
<08085> (8685)
the archers
<07228>
against Babylon
<0894>_:
all ye that bend
<01869> (8802)
the bow
<07198>_,
camp
<02583> (8798)
against it round about
<05439>_;
let none thereof escape
<06413>_:
recompense
<07999> (8761)
her according to her work
<06467>_;
according to all that she hath done
<06213> (8804)_,
do
<06213> (8798)
unto her: for she hath been proud
<02102> (8804)
against the LORD
<03068>_,
against the Holy One
<06918>
of Israel
<03478>_.
Therefore shall her young men
<0970>
fall
<05307> (8799)
in the streets
<07339>_,
and all her men
<0582>
of war
<04421>
shall be cut off
<01826> (8735)
in that day
<03117>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
Behold, I [am] against thee, [O thou] most proud
<02087>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>
of hosts
<06635>_:
for thy day
<03117>
is come
<0935> (8802)_,
the time
<06256>
[that] I will visit
<06485> (8804)
thee. {most...: Heb. pride}
And the most proud
<02087>
shall stumble
<03782> (8804)
and fall
<05307> (8804)_,
and none shall raise him up
<06965> (8688)_:
and I will kindle
<03341> (8689)
a fire
<0784>
in his cities
<05892>_,
and it shall devour
<0398> (8804)
all round about
<05439>
him. {the...: Heb. pride}
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_;
The children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
and the children
<01121>
of Judah
<03063>
[were] oppressed
<06231> (8803)
together
<03162>_:
and all that took them captives
<07617> (8802)
held them fast
<02388> (8689)_;
they refused
<03985> (8765)
to let them go
<07971> (8763)_.
Their Redeemer
<01350> (8802)
[is] strong
<02389>_;
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>
[is] his name
<08034>_:
he shall throughly
<07378> (8800)
plead
<07378> (8799)
their cause
<07379>_,
that he may give rest
<07280> (8689)
to the land
<0776>_,
and disquiet
<07264> (8689)
the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of Babylon
<0894>_.
A sword
<02719>
[is] upon the Chaldeans
<03778>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
and upon the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of Babylon
<0894>_,
and upon her princes
<08269>_,
and upon her wise
<02450>
[men].
A sword
<02719>
[is] upon the liars
<0907>_;
and they shall dote
<02973> (8738)_:
a sword
<02719>
[is] upon her mighty men
<01368>_;
and they shall be dismayed
<02865> (8804)_.
{liars: or, chief stays: Heb. bars}
A sword
<02719>
[is] upon their horses
<05483>_,
and upon their chariots
<07393>_,
and upon all the mingled people
<06153>
that [are] in the midst
<08432>
of her; and they shall become as women
<0802>_:
a sword
<02719>
[is] upon her treasures
<0214>_;
and they shall be robbed
<0962> (8795)_.
A drought
<02721>
[is] upon her waters
<04325>_;
and they shall be dried up
<03001> (8804)_:
for it [is] the land
<0776>
of graven images
<06456>_,
and they are mad
<01984> (8704)
upon [their] idols
<0367>_.
Therefore the wild beasts of the desert
<06728>
with the wild beasts of the islands
<0338>
shall dwell
<03427> (8799)
[there], and the owls
<01323> <03284>
shall dwell
<03427> (8804)
therein: and it shall be no more inhabited
<03427> (8799)
for ever
<05331>_;
neither shall it be dwelt
<07931> (8799)
in from generation
<01755>
to generation
<01755>_.
As God
<0430>
overthrew
<04114>
Sodom
<05467>
and Gomorrah
<06017>
and the neighbour
<07934>
[cities] thereof, saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_;
[so] shall no man
<0376>
abide
<03427> (8799)
there, neither shall any son
<01121>
of man
<0120>
dwell
<01481> (8799)
therein.
Behold, a people
<05971>
shall come
<0935> (8802)
from the north
<06828>_,
and a great
<01419>
nation
<01471>_,
and many
<07227>
kings
<04428>
shall be raised up
<05782> (8735)
from the coasts
<03411>
of the earth
<0776>_.
They shall hold
<02388> (8686)
the bow
<07198>
and the lance
<03591>_:
they [are] cruel
<0394>_,
and will not shew mercy
<07355> (8762)_:
their voice
<06963>
shall roar
<01993> (8799)
like the sea
<03220>_,
and they shall ride
<07392> (8799)
upon horses
<05483>_,
[every one] put in array
<06186> (8803)_,
like a man
<0376>
to the battle
<04421>_,
against thee, O daughter
<01323>
of Babylon
<0894>_.
The king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>
hath heard
<08085> (8804)
the report
<08088>
of them, and his hands
<03027>
waxed feeble
<07503> (8804)_:
anguish
<06869>
took hold
<02388> (8689)
of him, [and] pangs
<02427>
as of a woman in travail
<03205> (8802)_.
Behold, he shall come up
<05927> (8799)
like a lion
<0738>
from the swelling
<01347>
of Jordan
<03383>
unto the habitation
<05116>
of the strong
<0386>_:
but I will make
<07323> (0)
them suddenly
<07280> (8686)
run away
<07323> (8686) (8675) <07323> (8799)
from her: and who [is] a chosen
<0977> (8803)
[man, that] I may appoint
<06485> (8799)
over her? for who [is] like me? and who will appoint me the time
<03259> (8686)_?
and who [is] that shepherd
<07462> (8802)
that will stand
<05975> (8799)
before
<06440>
me? {appoint me...: or, convent me to plead?}
Therefore hear
<08085> (8798)
ye the counsel
<06098>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
that he hath taken
<03289> (8804)
against Babylon
<0894>_;
and his purposes
<04284>_,
that he hath purposed
<02803> (8804)
against the land
<0776>
of the Chaldeans
<03778>_:
Surely the least
<06810>
of the flock
<06629>
shall draw them out
<05498> (8799)_:
surely he shall make [their] habitation
<05116>
desolate
<08074> (8686)
with them.
At the noise
<06963>
of the taking
<08610> (8738)
of Babylon
<0894>
the earth
<0776>
is moved
<07493> (8735)_,
and the cry
<02201>
is heard
<08085> (8738)
among the nations
<01471>_.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
Behold, I will raise up
<05782> (8688)
against Babylon
<0894>_,
and against them that dwell
<03427> (8802)
in the midst
<03820>
of them that rise up
<06965> (8801)
against me, a destroying
<07843> (8688)
wind
<07307>_;
{midst: Heb. heart}
And will send
<07971> (8765)
unto Babylon
<0894>
fanners
<02114> (8801)_,
that shall fan
<02219> (8765)
her, and shall empty
<01238> (8787)
her land
<0776>_:
for in the day
<03117>
of trouble
<07451>
they shall be against her round about
<05439>_.
Against [him that] bendeth
<01869> (0)
let the archer
<01869> (8802)
bend
<01869> (8799)
his bow
<07198>_,
and against [him that] lifteth himself up
<05927> (8691)
in his brigandine
<05630>_:
and spare
<02550> (8799)
ye not her young men
<0970>_;
destroy ye utterly
<02763> (8685)
all her host
<06635>_.
Thus the slain
<02491>
shall fall
<05307> (8804)
in the land
<0776>
of the Chaldeans
<03778>_,
and [they that are] thrust through
<01856> (8794)
in her streets
<02351>_.
For Israel
<03478>
[hath] not [been] forsaken
<0488>_,
nor Judah
<03063>
of his God
<0430>_,
of the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_;
though their land
<0776>
was filled
<04390> (8804)
with sin
<0817>
against the Holy One
<06918>
of Israel
<03478>_.
Flee out
<05127> (8798)
of the midst
<08432>
of Babylon
<0894>_,
and deliver
<04422> (8761)
every man
<0376>
his soul
<05315>_:
be not cut off
<01826> (8735)
in her iniquity
<05771>_;
for this [is] the time
<06256>
of the LORD'S
<03068>
vengeance
<05360>_;
he will render
<07999> (8764)
unto her a recompence
<01576>_.
Babylon
<0894>
[hath been] a golden
<02091>
cup
<03563>
in the LORD'S
<03068>
hand
<03027>_,
that made all the earth
<0776>
drunken
<07937> (8764)_:
the nations
<01471>
have drunken
<08354> (8804)
of her wine
<03196>_;
therefore the nations
<01471>
are mad
<01984> (8704)_.
Babylon
<0894>
is suddenly
<06597>
fallen
<05307> (8804)
and destroyed
<07665> (8735)_:
howl
<03213> (8685)
for her; take
<03947> (8798)
balm
<06875>
for her pain
<04341>_,
if so be she may be healed
<07495> (8735)_.
We would have healed
<07495> (8765)
Babylon
<0894>_,
but she is not healed
<07495> (8738)_:
forsake
<05800> (8798)
her, and let us go
<03212> (8799)
every one
<0376>
into his own country
<0776>_:
for her judgment
<04941>
reacheth
<05060> (8804)
unto heaven
<08064>_,
and is lifted up
<05375> (8738)
[even] to the skies
<07834>_.
The LORD
<03068>
hath brought forth
<03318> (8689)
our righteousness
<06666>_:
come
<0935> (8798)_,
and let us declare
<05608> (8762)
in Zion
<06726>
the work
<04639>
of the LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>_.
Make bright
<01305> (8685)
the arrows
<02671>_;
gather
<04390> (8798)
the shields
<07982>_:
the LORD
<03068>
hath raised up
<05782> (8689)
the spirit
<07307>
of the kings
<04428>
of the Medes
<04074>_:
for his device
<04209>
[is] against Babylon
<0894>_,
to destroy
<07843> (8687)
it; because it [is] the vengeance
<05360>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
the vengeance
<05360>
of his temple
<01964>_.
{bright: Heb. pure}
Set up
<05375> (8798)
the standard
<05251>
upon the walls
<02346>
of Babylon
<0894>_,
make the watch
<04929>
strong
<02388> (8685)_,
set up
<06965> (8685)
the watchmen
<08104> (8802)_,
prepare
<03559> (8685)
the ambushes
<0693> (8802)_:
for the LORD
<03068>
hath both devised
<02161> (8804)
and done
<06213> (8804)
that which he spake
<01696> (8765)
against the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of Babylon
<0894>_.
{ambushes: Heb. liers in wait}
O thou that dwellest
<07931> (8802) (8675) <07931> (8804)
upon many
<07227>
waters
<04325>_,
abundant
<07227>
in treasures
<0214>_,
thine end
<07093>
is come
<0935> (8802)_,
[and] the measure
<0520>
of thy covetousness
<01215>_.
The LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>
hath sworn
<07650> (8738)
by himself
<05315>_,
[saying], Surely I will fill
<04390> (8765)
thee with men
<0120>_,
as with caterpillers
<03218>_;
and they shall lift up
<06030> (8804)
a shout
<01959>
against thee. {by himself: Heb. by his soul} {lift up: Heb. utter}
He hath made
<06213> (8802)
the earth
<0776>
by his power
<03581>_,
he hath established
<03559> (8688)
the world
<08398>
by his wisdom
<02451>_,
and hath stretched out
<05186> (8804)
the heaven
<08064>
by his understanding
<08394>_.
When he uttereth
<05414> (8800)
[his] voice
<06963>_,
[there is] a multitude
<01995>
of waters
<04325>
in the heavens
<08064>_;
and he causeth the vapours
<05387>
to ascend
<05927> (8686)
from the ends
<07097>
of the earth
<0776>_:
he maketh
<06213> (8804)
lightnings
<01300>
with rain
<04306>_,
and bringeth forth
<03318> (8686)
the wind
<07307>
out of his treasures
<0214>_.
{multitude: or, noise}
Every man
<0120>
is brutish
<01197> (8738)
by [his] knowledge
<01847>_;
every founder
<06884> (8802)
is confounded
<03001> (8689)
by the graven image
<06459>_:
for his molten image
<05262>
[is] falsehood
<08267>_,
and [there is] no breath
<07307>
in them. {is brutish...: or, is more brutish than to know}
They [are] vanity
<01892>_,
the work
<04639>
of errors
<08595>_:
in the time
<06256>
of their visitation
<06486>
they shall perish
<06> (8799)_.
The portion
<02506>
of Jacob
<03290>
[is] not like them; for he [is] the former
<03335> (8802)
of all things: and [Israel is] the rod
<07626>
of his inheritance
<05159>_:
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>
[is] his name
<08034>_.
Thou [art] my battle axe
<04661>
[and] weapons
<03627>
of war
<04421>_:
for with thee will I break in pieces
<05310> (8765)
the nations
<01471>_,
and with thee will I destroy
<07843> (8689)
kingdoms
<04467>_;
{with thee: or, in thee, or, by thee}
And with thee will I break in pieces
<05310> (8765)
the horse
<05483>
and his rider
<07392> (8802)_;
and with thee will I break in pieces
<05310> (8765)
the chariot
<07393>
and his rider
<07392> (8802)_;
With thee also will I break in pieces
<05310> (8765)
man
<0376>
and woman
<0802>_;
and with thee will I break in pieces
<05310> (8765)
old
<02205>
and young
<05288>_;
and with thee will I break in pieces
<05310> (8765)
the young man
<0970>
and the maid
<01330>_;
I will also break in pieces
<05310> (8765)
with thee the shepherd
<07462> (8802)
and his flock
<05739>_;
and with thee will I break in pieces
<05310> (8765)
the husbandman
<0406>
and his yoke of oxen
<06776>_;
and with thee will I break in pieces
<05310> (8765)
captains
<06346>
and rulers
<05461>_.
