Jeremiah 22:1-30

Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
Go down
<03381> (8798)
to the house
<01004>
of the king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and speak
<01696> (8765)
there this word
<01697>_,
And say
<0559> (8804)_,
Hear
<08085> (8798)
the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
O king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_,
that sittest
<03427> (8802)
upon the throne
<03678>
of David
<01732>_,
thou, and thy servants
<05650>_,
and thy people
<05971>
that enter
<0935> (8802)
in by these gates
<08179>_:
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
Execute
<06213> (8798)
ye judgment
<04941>
and righteousness
<06666>_,
and deliver
<05337> (8685)
the spoiled
<01497> (8803)
out of the hand
<03027>
of the oppressor
<06216>_:
and do no wrong
<03238> (8686)_,
do no violence
<02554> (8799)
to the stranger
<01616>_,
the fatherless
<03490>_,
nor the widow
<0490>_,
neither shed
<08210> (8799)
innocent
<05355>
blood
<01818>
in this place
<04725>_.
For if ye do
<06213> (8799)
this thing
<01697>
indeed
<06213> (8800)_,
then shall there enter in
<0935> (8804)
by the gates
<08179>
of this house
<01004>
kings
<04428>
sitting
<03427> (8802)
upon the throne
<03678>
of David
<01732>_,
riding
<07392> (8802)
in chariots
<07393>
and on horses
<05483>_,
he, and his servants
<05650>_,
and his people
<05971>_.
{upon...: Heb. for David upon his throne}
But if ye will not hear
<08085> (8799)
these words
<01697>_,
I swear
<07650> (8738)
by myself, saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
that this house
<01004>
shall become a desolation
<02723>_.
For thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
unto the king's
<04428>
house
<01004>
of Judah
<03063>_;
Thou [art] Gilead
<01568>
unto me, [and] the head
<07218>
of Lebanon
<03844>_:
[yet] surely I will make
<07896> (8799)
thee a wilderness
<04057>_,
[and] cities
<05892>
[which] are not inhabited
<03427> (8738) (8675) <03427> (8737)_.
And I will prepare
<06942> (8765)
destroyers
<07843> (8688)
against thee, every one
<0376>
with his weapons
<03627>_:
and they shall cut down
<03772> (8804)
thy choice
<04005>
cedars
<0730>_,
and cast
<05307> (8689)
[them] into the fire
<0784>_.
And many
<07227>
nations
<01471>
shall pass
<05674> (8804)
by this city
<05892>_,
and they shall say
<0559> (8804)
every man
<0376>
to his neighbour
<07453>_,
Wherefore hath the LORD
<03068>
done
<06213> (8804)
thus unto this great
<01419>
city
<05892>_?
Then they shall answer
<0559> (8804)_,
Because they have forsaken
<05800> (8804)
the covenant
<01285>
of the LORD
<03068>
their God
<0430>_,
and worshipped
<07812> (8691)
other
<0312>
gods
<0430>_,
and served
<05647> (8799)
them.
Weep
<01058> (8799)
ye not for the dead
<04191> (8801)_,
neither bemoan
<05110> (8799)
him: [but] weep
<01058> (8798)
sore
<01058> (8800)
for him that goeth away
<01980> (8802)_:
for he shall return
<07725> (8799)
no more, nor see
<07200> (8804)
his native
<04138>
country
<0776>_.
For thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
touching
<0413>
Shallum
<07967>
the son
<01121>
of Josiah
<02977>
king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_,
which reigned
<04427> (8802)
instead of Josiah
<02977>
his father
<01>_,
which went forth
<03318> (8804)
out of this place
<04725>_;
He shall not return
<07725> (8799)
thither any more:
But he shall die
<04191> (8799)
in the place
<04725>
whither they have led him captive
<01540> (8689)_,
and shall see
<07200> (8799)
this land
<0776>
no more.
Woe
<01945>
unto him that buildeth
<01129> (8802)
his house
<01004>
by
<03808>
unrighteousness
<06664>_,
and his chambers
<05944>
by wrong
<04941>_;
[that] useth his neighbour's
<07453>
service
<05647> (8799)
without wages
<02600>_,
and giveth
<05414> (8799)
him not for his work
<06467>_;
That saith
<0559> (8802)_,
I will build
<01129> (8799)
me a wide
<04060>
house
<01004>
and large
<07304> (8794)
chambers
<05944>_,
and cutteth him out
<07167> (8804)
windows
<02474>_;
and [it is] cieled
<05603> (8803)
with cedar
<0730>_,
and painted
<04886> (8800)
with vermilion
<08350>_.
{large: Heb. through-aired} {windows: or, my windows}
Shalt thou reign
<04427> (8799)_,
because thou closest
<08474> (8808)
[thyself] in cedar
<0730>_?
did not thy father
<01>
eat
<0398> (8804)
and drink
<08354> (8804)_,
and do
<06213> (8804)
judgment
<04941>
and justice
<06666>_,
[and] then [it was] well
<02896>
with him?
He judged
<01777> (8804)
the cause
<01779>
of the poor
<06041>
and needy
<034>_;
then [it was] well
<02896>
[with him: was] not this to know
<01847>
me? saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
But thine eyes
<05869>
and thine heart
<03820>
[are] not but for thy covetousness
<01215>_,
and for to shed
<08210> (8800)
innocent
<05355>
blood
<01818>_,
and for oppression
<06233>_,
and for violence
<04835>_,
to do
<06213> (8800)
[it]. {violence: or, incursion}
Therefore thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
concerning Jehoiakim
<03079>
the son
<01121>
of Josiah
<02977>
king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_;
They shall not lament
<05594> (8799)
for him, [saying], Ah
<01945>
my brother
<0251>_!
or, Ah
<01945>
sister
<0269>_!
they shall not lament
<05594> (8799)
for him, [saying], Ah
<01945>
lord
<0113>_!
or, Ah
<01945>
his glory
<01935>_!
He shall be buried
<06912> (8735)
with the burial
<06900>
of an ass
<02543>_,
drawn
<05498> (8800)
and cast forth
<07993> (8687)
beyond
<01973>
the gates
<08179>
of Jerusalem
<03389>_.
Go up
<05927> (8798)
to Lebanon
<03844>_,
and cry
<06817> (8798)_;
and lift up
<05414> (8798)
thy voice
<06963>
in Bashan
<01316>_,
and cry
<06817> (8798)
from the passages
<05676>_:
for all thy lovers
<0157> (8764)
are destroyed
<07665> (8738)_.
I spake
<01696> (8765)
unto thee in thy prosperity
<07962>_;
[but] thou saidst
<0559> (8804)_,
I will not hear
<08085> (8799)_.
This [hath been] thy manner
<01870>
from thy youth
<05271>_,
that thou obeyedst
<08085> (8804)
not my voice
<06963>_.
{prosperity: Heb. prosperities}
The wind
<07307>
shall eat up
<07462> (8799)
all thy pastors
<07462> (8802)_,
and thy lovers
<0157> (8764)
shall go
<03212> (8799)
into captivity
<07628>_:
surely then shalt thou be ashamed
<0954> (8799)
and confounded
<03637> (8738)
for all thy wickedness
<07451>_.
O inhabitant
<03427> (8802)
of Lebanon
<03844>_,
that makest thy nest
<07077> (8794)
in the cedars
<0730>_,
how gracious
<02603> (8738)
shalt thou be when pangs
<02256>
come
<0935> (8800)
upon thee, the pain
<02427>
as of a woman in travail
<03205> (8802)_!
{inhabitant: Heb. inhabitress}
[As] I live
<02416>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
though Coniah
<03659>
the son
<01121>
of Jehoiakim
<03079>
king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>
were the signet
<02368>
upon my right
<03225>
hand
<03027>_,
yet would I pluck
<05423> (8799)
thee thence;
And I will give
<05414> (8804)
thee into the hand
<03027>
of them that seek
<01245> (8764)
thy life
<05315>_,
and into the hand
<03027>
[of them] whose face
<06440>
thou fearest
<03016> (8801)_,
even into the hand
<03027>
of Nebuchadrezzar
<05019>
king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>_,
and into the hand
<03027>
of the Chaldeans
<03778>_.
And I will cast thee out
<02904> (8689)_,
and thy mother
<0517>
that bare
<03205> (8804)
thee, into another
<0312>
country
<0776>_,
where ye were not born
<03205> (8795)_;
and there shall ye die
<04191> (8799)_.
But to the land
<0776>
whereunto they desire
<05375> (8764) (8676) <05315>
to return
<07725> (8800)_,
thither shall they not return
<07725> (8799)_.
{desire: Heb. lift up their mind}
[Is] this man
<0376>
Coniah
<03659>
a despised
<0959> (8737)
broken
<05310> (8803)
idol
<06089>_?
[is he] a vessel
<03627>
wherein [is] no pleasure
<02656>_?
wherefore are they cast out
<07993> (8717)_,
he and his seed
<02233>_,
and are cast
<02904> (8717)
into a land
<0776>
which they know
<03045> (8804)
not?
O earth
<0776>_,
earth
<0776>_,
earth
<0776>_,
hear
<08085> (8798)
the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
Write
<03789> (8798)
ye this man
<0376>
childless
<06185>_,
a man
<01397>
[that] shall not prosper
<06743> (8799)
in his days
<03117>_:
for no man
<0376>
of his seed
<02233>
shall prosper
<06743> (8799)_,
sitting
<03427> (8802)
upon the throne
<03678>
of David
<01732>_,
and ruling
<04910> (8802)
any more in Judah
<03063>_.
