Jeremiah 50:1--51:64

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>_.
And I will render
<07999> (8765)
unto Babylon
<0894>
and to all the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of Chaldea
<03778>
all their evil
<07451>
that they have done
<06213> (8804)
in Zion
<06726>
in your sight
<05869>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
Behold, I [am] against thee, O destroying
<04889>
mountain
<02022>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
which destroyest
<07843> (8688)
all the earth
<0776>_:
and I will stretch out
<05186> (8804)
mine hand
<03027>
upon thee, and roll thee down
<01556> (8773)
from the rocks
<05553>_,
and will make
<05414> (8804)
thee a burnt
<08316>
mountain
<02022>_.
And they shall not take
<03947> (8799)
of thee a stone
<068>
for a corner
<06438>_,
nor a stone
<068>
for foundations
<04146>_;
but thou shalt be desolate
<08077>
for ever
<05769>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
{desolate...: Heb. everlasting desolations}
Set ye up
<05375> (8798)
a standard
<05251>
in the land
<0776>_,
blow
<08628> (8798)
the trumpet
<07782>
among the nations
<01471>_,
prepare
<06942> (8761)
the nations
<01471>
against her, call together
<08085> (8685)
against her the kingdoms
<04467>
of Ararat
<0780>_,
Minni
<04508>_,
and Ashchenaz
<0813>_;
appoint
<06485> (8798)
a captain
<02951>
against her; cause the horses
<05483>
to come up
<05927> (8685)
as the rough
<05569>
caterpillers
<03218>_.
Prepare
<06942> (8761)
against her the nations
<01471>
with the kings
<04428>
of the Medes
<04074>_,
the captains
<06346>
thereof, and all the rulers
<05461>
thereof, and all the land
<0776>
of his dominion
<04475>_.
And the land
<0776>
shall tremble
<07493> (8799)
and sorrow
<02342> (8799)_:
for every purpose
<04284>
of the LORD
<03068>
shall be performed
<06965> (8804)
against Babylon
<0894>_,
to make
<07760> (8800)
the land
<0776>
of Babylon
<0894>
a desolation
<08047>
without an inhabitant
<03427> (8802)_.
The mighty men
<01368>
of Babylon
<0894>
have forborn
<02308> (8804)
to fight
<03898> (8736)_,
they have remained
<03427> (8804)
in [their] holds
<04679>_:
their might
<01369>
hath failed
<05405> (8804)_;
they became as women
<0802>_:
they have burned
<03341> (8689)
her dwellingplaces
<04908>_;
her bars
<01280>
are broken
<07665> (8738)_.
One post
<07323> (8801)
shall run
<07323> (8799)
to meet
<07125> (8800)
another
<07323> (8801)_,
and one messenger
<05046> (8688)
to meet
<07125> (8800)
another
<05046> (8688)_,
to shew
<05046> (8687)
the king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>
that his city
<05892>
is taken
<03920> (8738)
at [one] end
<07097>_,
And that the passages
<04569>
are stopped
<08610> (8738)_,
and the reeds
<098>
they have burned
<08313> (8804)
with fire
<0784>_,
and the men
<0582>
of war
<04421>
are affrighted
<0926> (8738)_.
For thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_;
The daughter
<01323>
of Babylon
<0894>
[is] like a threshingfloor
<01637>_,
[it is] time
<06256>
to thresh
<01869> (8687)
her: yet a little while
<04592>_,
and the time
<06256>
of her harvest
<07105>
shall come
<0935> (8804)_.
{it is...: or, in the time that he thresheth her}
Nebuchadrezzar
<05019>
the king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>
hath devoured
<0398> (8804)
me, he hath crushed
<02000> (8804)
me, he hath made
<03322> (8689)
me an empty
<07385>
vessel
<03627>_,
he hath swallowed me up
<01104> (8804)
like a dragon
<08577>_,
he hath filled
<04390> (8765)
his belly
<03770>
with my delicates
<05730>_,
he hath cast me out
<01740> (8689)_.
The violence
<02555>
done to me and to my flesh
<07607>
[be] upon Babylon
<0894>_,
shall the inhabitant
<03427> (8802)
of Zion
<06726>
say
<0559> (8799)_;
and my blood
<01818>
upon the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of Chaldea
<03778>_,
shall Jerusalem
<03389>
say
<0559> (8799)_.
{The violence...: Heb. My violence} {flesh: or, remainder} {inhabitant: Heb. inhabitress}
Therefore thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
Behold, I will plead
<07378> (8801)
thy cause
<07379>_,
and take vengeance
<05358> (8765)
for thee
<05360>_;
and I will dry up
<02717> (8689)
her sea
<03220>_,
and make her springs
<04726>
dry
<03001> (8689)_.
And Babylon
<0894>
shall become heaps
<01530>_,
a dwellingplace
<04583>
for dragons
<08577>_,
an astonishment
<08047>_,
and an hissing
<08322>_,
without an inhabitant
<03427> (8802)_.
They shall roar
<07580> (8799)
together
<03162>
like lions
<03715>_:
they shall yell
<05286> (8804)
as lions
<0738>_'
whelps
<01484>_.
{yell: or, shake themselves}
In their heat
<02527>
I will make
<07896> (8799)
their feasts
<04960>_,
and I will make them drunken
<07937> (8689)_,
that they may rejoice
<05937> (8799)_,
and sleep
<03462> (8804)
a perpetual
<05769>
sleep
<08142>_,
and not wake
<06974> (8686)_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
I will bring them down
<03381> (8686)
like lambs
<03733>
to the slaughter
<02873> (8800)_,
like rams
<0352>
with he goats
<06260>_.
How is Sheshach
<08347>
taken
<03920> (8738)_!
and how is the praise
<08416>
of the whole earth
<0776>
surprised
<08610> (8735)_!
how is Babylon
<0894>
become an astonishment
<08047>
among the nations
<01471>_!
The sea
<03220>
is come up
<05927> (8804)
upon Babylon
<0894>_:
she is covered
<03680> (8738)
with the multitude
<01995>
of the waves
<01530>
thereof.
Her cities
<05892>
are a desolation
<08047>_,
a dry
<06723>
land
<0776>_,
and a wilderness
<06160>_,
a land
<0776>
wherein no man
<0376>
dwelleth
<03427> (8799)_,
neither doth [any] son
<01121>
of man
<0120>
pass
<05674> (8799)
thereby
<02004>_.
And I will punish
<06485> (8804)
Bel
<01078>
in Babylon
<0894>_,
and I will bring forth
<03318> (8689)
out of his mouth
<06310>
that which he hath swallowed up
<01105>_:
and the nations
<01471>
shall not flow together
<05102> (8799)
any more unto him: yea, the wall
<02346>
of Babylon
<0894>
shall fall
<05307> (8804)_.
My people
<05971>_,
go ye out
<03318> (8798)
of the midst
<08432>
of her, and deliver
<04422> (8761)
ye every man
<0376>
his soul
<05315>
from the fierce
<02740>
anger
<0639>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
And lest your heart
<03824>
faint
<07401> (8735)_,
and ye fear
<03372> (8799)
for the rumour
<08052>
that shall be heard
<08085> (8737)
in the land
<0776>_;
a rumour
<08052>
shall both come
<0935> (8804)
[one] year
<08141>_,
and after
<0310>
that in [another] year
<08141>
[shall come] a rumour
<08052>_,
and violence
<02555>
in the land
<0776>_,
ruler
<04910> (8802)
against ruler
<04910> (8802)_.
{lest: or, let not}
Therefore, behold, the days
<03117>
come
<0935> (8802)_,
that I will do judgment
<06485> (8804)
upon the graven images
<06456>
of Babylon
<0894>_:
and her whole land
<0776>
shall be confounded
<0954> (8799)_,
and all her slain
<02491>
shall fall
<05307> (8799)
in the midst
<08432>
of her. {do...: Heb. visit upon}
Then the heaven
<08064>
and the earth
<0776>_,
and all that [is] therein, shall sing
<07442> (8765)
for Babylon
<0894>_:
for the spoilers
<07703> (8802)
shall come
<0935> (8799)
unto her from the north
<06828>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
As
<01571>
Babylon
<0894>
[hath caused] the slain
<02491>
of Israel
<03478>
to fall
<05307> (8800)_,
so at Babylon
<0894>
shall fall
<05307> (8804)
the slain
<02491>
of all the earth
<0776>_.
{As...: or, Both Babylon is to fall, O ye slain of Israel, and with Babylon, etc} {the earth: or, the country}
Ye that have escaped
<06405>
the sword
<02719>_,
go away
<01980> (8798)_,
stand not still
<05975> (8799)_:
remember
<02142> (8798)
the LORD
<03068>
afar off
<07350>_,
and let Jerusalem
<03389>
come
<05927> (8799)
into your mind
<03824>_.
We are confounded
<0954> (8804)_,
because we have heard
<08085> (8804)
reproach
<02781>_:
shame
<03639>
hath covered
<03680> (8765)
our faces
<06440>_:
for strangers
<02114> (8801)
are come
<0935> (8804)
into the sanctuaries
<04720>
of the LORD'S
<03068>
house
<01004>_.
Wherefore, behold, the days
<03117>
come
<0935> (8802)_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
that I will do judgment
<06485> (8804)
upon her graven images
<06456>_:
and through all her land
<0776>
the wounded
<02491>
shall groan
<0602> (8799)_.
Though Babylon
<0894>
should mount up
<05927> (8799)
to heaven
<08064>_,
and though she should fortify
<01219> (8762)
the height
<04791>
of her strength
<05797>_,
[yet]
<0227>
from me shall spoilers
<07703> (8802)
come
<0935> (8799)
unto her, saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
A sound
<06963>
of a cry
<02201>
[cometh] from Babylon
<0894>_,
and great
<01419>
destruction
<07667>
from the land
<0776>
of the Chaldeans
<03778>_:
Because the LORD
<03068>
hath spoiled
<07703> (8802)
Babylon
<0894>_,
and destroyed
<06> (8765)
out of her the great
<01419>
voice
<06963>_;
when her waves
<01530>
do roar
<01993> (8804)
like great
<07227>
waters
<04325>_,
a noise
<07588>
of their voice
<06963>
is uttered
<05414> (8738)_:
Because the spoiler
<07703> (8802)
is come
<0935> (8804)
upon her, [even] upon Babylon
<0894>_,
and her mighty men
<01368>
are taken
<03920> (8738)_,
every one of their bows
<07198>
is broken
<02865> (8765)_:
for the LORD
<03068>
God
<0410>
of recompences
<01578>
shall surely
<07999> (8763)
requite
<07999> (8762)_.
And I will make drunk
<07937> (8689)
her princes
<08269>_,
and her wise
<02450>
[men], her captains
<06346>_,
and her rulers
<05461>_,
and her mighty men
<01368>_:
and they shall sleep
<03462> (8804)
a perpetual
<05769>
sleep
<08142>_,
and not wake
<06974> (8686)_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the King
<04428>_,
whose name
<08034>
[is] the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_;
The broad
<07342>
walls
<02346>
of Babylon
<0894>
shall be utterly
<06209> (8771)
broken
<06209> (8698)_,
and her high
<01364>
gates
<08179>
shall be burned
<03341> (8799)
with fire
<0784>_;
and the people
<05971>
shall labour
<03021> (8799)
in vain
<07385>_,
and the folk
<03816>
in
<01767>
the fire
<0784>_,
and they shall be weary
<03286> (8804)_.
{The broad...: or, The walls of broad Babylon} {broken: or, made naked}
The word
<01697>
which Jeremiah
<03414>
the prophet
<05030>
commanded
<06680> (8765)
Seraiah
<08304>
the son
<01121>
of Neriah
<05374>_,
the son
<01121>
of Maaseiah
<04271>_,
when he went
<03212> (8800)
with Zedekiah
<06667>
the king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>
into Babylon
<0894>
in the fourth
<07243>
year
<08141>
of his reign
<04427> (8800)_.
And [this] Seraiah
<08304>
[was] a quiet
<04496>
prince
<08269>_.
{with: or, on the behalf of} {quiet...: or, prince of Menucha, or, chief chamberlain}
So Jeremiah
<03414>
wrote
<03789> (8799)
in a
<0259>
book
<05612>
all the evil
<07451>
that should come
<0935> (8799)
upon Babylon
<0894>_,
[even] all these words
<01697>
that are written
<03789> (8803)
against Babylon
<0894>_.
And Jeremiah
<03414>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Seraiah
<08304>_,
When thou comest
<0935> (8800)
to Babylon
<0894>_,
and shalt see
<07200> (8804)_,
and shalt read
<07121> (8804)
all these words
<01697>_;
Then shalt thou say
<0559> (8804)_,
O LORD
<03068>_,
thou hast spoken
<01696> (8765)
against this place
<04725>_,
to cut it off
<03772> (8687)_,
that none shall remain
<03427> (8802)
in it, neither man
<0120>
nor beast
<0929>_,
but that it shall be desolate
<08077>
for ever
<05769>_.
{desolate: Heb. desolations}
And it shall be, when thou hast made an end
<03615> (8763)
of reading
<07121> (8800)
this book
<05612>_,
[that] thou shalt bind
<07194> (8799)
a stone
<068>
to it, and cast
<07993> (8689)
it into the midst
<08432>
of Euphrates
<06578>_:
And thou shalt say
<0559> (8804)_,
Thus shall Babylon
<0894>
sink
<08257> (8799)_,
and shall not rise
<06965> (8799)
from
<06440>
the evil
<07451>
that I will bring
<0935> (8688)
upon her: and they shall be weary
<03286> (8804)_.
Thus far [are] the words
<01697>
of Jeremiah
<03414>_.
