Jeremiah 10:1-16

Hear
<08085> (8798)
ye the word
<01697>
which the LORD
<03068>
speaketh
<01696> (8765)
unto you, O house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>_:
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
Learn
<03925> (8799)
not the way
<01870>
of the heathen
<01471>_,
and be not dismayed
<02865> (8735)
at the signs
<0226>
of heaven
<08064>_;
for the heathen
<01471>
are dismayed
<02865> (8735)
at them
<01992>_.
For the customs
<02708>
of the people
<05971>
[are] vain
<01892>_:
for [one] cutteth
<03772> (8804)
a tree
<06086>
out of the forest
<03293>_,
the work
<04639>
of the hands
<03027>
of the workman
<02796>_,
with the axe
<04621>_.
{customs...: Heb. statutes, or, ordinances are vanity}
They deck
<03302> (8762)
it with silver
<03701>
and with gold
<02091>_;
they fasten
<02388> (8762)
it with nails
<04548>
and with hammers
<04717>_,
that it move
<06328> (8686)
not.
They [are] upright
<04749>
as the palm tree
<08560>_,
but speak
<01696> (8762)
not: they must needs
<05375> (8800)
be borne
<05375> (8735)_,
because they cannot go
<06805> (8799)_.
Be not afraid
<03372> (8799)
of them; for they cannot do evil
<07489> (8686)_,
neither also [is it] in them to do good
<03190> (8687)_.
Forasmuch as [there is] none like unto thee, O LORD
<03068>_;
thou [art] great
<01419>_,
and thy name
<08034>
[is] great
<01419>
in might
<01369>_.
Who would not fear
<03372> (8799)
thee, O King
<04428>
of nations
<01471>_?
for to thee doth it appertain
<02969> (8804)_:
forasmuch as among all the wise
<02450>
[men] of the nations
<01471>_,
and in all their kingdoms
<04438>_,
[there is] none like unto thee. {to...: or, it liketh thee}
But they are altogether
<0259>
brutish
<01197> (8799)
and foolish
<03688> (8799)_:
the stock
<06086>
[is] a doctrine
<04148>
of vanities
<01892>_.
{altogether: Heb. in one, or, at once}
Silver
<03701>
spread into plates
<07554> (8794)
is brought
<0935> (8714)
from Tarshish
<08659>_,
and gold
<02091>
from Uphaz
<0210>_,
the work
<04639>
of the workman
<02796>_,
and of the hands
<03027>
of the founder
<06884> (8802)_:
blue
<08504>
and purple
<0713>
[is] their clothing
<03830>_:
they [are] all the work
<04639>
of cunning
<02450>
[men].
But the LORD
<03068>
[is] the true
<0571>
God
<0430>_,
he [is] the living
<02416>
God
<0430>_,
and an everlasting
<05769>
king
<04428>_:
at his wrath
<07110>
the earth
<0776>
shall tremble
<07493> (8799)_,
and the nations
<01471>
shall not be able to abide
<03557> (8686)
his indignation
<02195>_.
{true...: Heb. God of truth} {living God: Heb. living Gods} {everlasting...: Heb. king of eternity}
Thus
<01836>
shall ye say
<0560> (8748)
unto them, The gods
<0426>
that have not
<03809>
made
<05648> (8754)
the heavens
<08065>
and the earth
<0778>_,
[even] they shall perish
<07> (8748)
from the earth
<0772>_,
and from under
<08460>
these
<0429>
heavens
<08065>_.
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 heavens
<08064>
by his discretion
<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} {with: or, for}
Every man
<0120>
is brutish
<01197> (8738)
in [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. {brutish in his knowledge: or, more brutish than to know}
They [are] vanity
<01892>_,
[and] 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
<03478>
[is] the rod
<07626>
of his inheritance
<05159>_:
The LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>
[is] his name
<08034>_.
