Jeremiah 29:1-32

Now these [are] the words
<01697>
of the letter
<05612>
that Jeremiah
<03414>
the prophet
<05030>
sent
<07971> (8804)
from Jerusalem
<03389>
unto the residue
<03499>
of the elders
<02205>
which were carried away captives
<01473>_,
and to the priests
<03548>_,
and to the prophets
<05030>_,
and to all the people
<05971>
whom Nebuchadnezzar
<05019>
had carried away captive
<01540> (8689)
from Jerusalem
<03389>
to Babylon
<0894>_;
(After
<0310>
that Jeconiah
<03204>
the king
<04428>_,
and the queen
<01377>_,
and the eunuchs
<05631>_,
the princes
<08269>
of Judah
<03063>
and Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and the carpenters
<02796>_,
and the smiths
<04525>_,
were departed
<03318> (8800)
from Jerusalem
<03389>;)
{eunuchs: or, chamberlains}
By the hand
<03027>
of Elasah
<0501>
the son
<01121>
of Shaphan
<08227>_,
and Gemariah
<01587>
the son
<01121>
of Hilkiah
<02518>_,
(whom Zedekiah
<06667>
king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>
sent
<07971> (8804)
unto Babylon
<0894>
to Nebuchadnezzar
<05019>
king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>)
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
unto all that are carried away captives
<01473>_,
whom I have caused to be carried away
<01540> (8689)
from Jerusalem
<03389>
unto Babylon
<0894>_;
Build
<01129> (8798)
ye houses
<01004>_,
and dwell
<03427> (8798)
[in them]; and plant
<05193> (8798)
gardens
<01593>_,
and eat
<0398> (8798)
the fruit
<06529>
of them;
Take
<03947> (8798)
ye wives
<0802>_,
and beget
<03205> (8685)
sons
<01121>
and daughters
<01323>_;
and take
<03947> (8798)
wives
<0802>
for your sons
<01121>_,
and give
<05414> (8798)
your daughters
<01323>
to husbands
<0582>_,
that they may bear
<03205> (8799)
sons
<01121>
and daughters
<01121>_;
that ye may be increased
<07235> (8798)
there, and not diminished
<04591> (8799)_.
And seek
<01875> (8798)
the peace
<07965>
of the city
<05892>
whither I have caused you to be carried away captives
<01540> (8689)_,
and pray
<06419> (8690)
unto the LORD
<03068>
for it: for in the peace
<07965>
thereof shall ye have peace
<07965>_.
For thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_;
Let not your prophets
<05030>
and your diviners
<07080> (8802)_,
that [be] in the midst
<07130>
of you, deceive
<05377> (8686)
you, neither hearken
<08085> (8799)
to your dreams
<02472>
which ye cause to be dreamed
<02492> (8688)_.
For they prophesy
<05012> (8737)
falsely
<08267>
unto you in my name
<08034>_:
I have not sent
<07971> (8804)
them, saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
{falsely: Heb. in a lie}
For thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
That after
<06310>
seventy
<07657>
years
<08141>
be accomplished
<04390> (8800)
at Babylon
<0894>
I will visit
<06485> (8799)
you, and perform
<06965> (8689)
my good
<02896>
word
<01697>
toward you, in causing you to return
<07725> (8687)
to this place
<04725>_.
For I know
<03045> (8804)
the thoughts
<04284>
that I think
<02803> (8802)
toward you, saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
thoughts
<04284>
of peace
<07965>_,
and not of evil
<07451>_,
to give
<05414> (8800)
you an expected
<08615>
end
<0319>_.
{expected...: Heb. end and expectation}
Then shall ye call
<07121> (8804)
upon me, and ye shall go
<01980> (8804)
and pray
<06419> (8694)
unto me, and I will hearken
<08085> (8804)
unto you.
And ye shall seek
<01245> (8765)
me, and find
<04672> (8804)
[me], when ye shall search
<01875> (8799)
for me with all your heart
<03824>_.
And I will be found
<04672> (8738)
of you, saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_:
and I will turn away
<07725> (8804)
your captivity
<07622> (8675) <07622>_,
and I will gather
<06908> (8765)
you from all the nations
<01471>_,
and from all the places
<04725>
whither I have driven
<05080> (8689)
you, saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_;
and I will bring you again
<07725> (8689)
into the place
<04725>
whence I caused you to be carried away captive
<01540> (8689)_.
Because ye have said
<0559> (8804)_,
The LORD
<03068>
hath raised us up
<06965> (8689)
prophets
<05030>
in Babylon
<0894>_;
[Know] that thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of the king
<04428>
that sitteth
<03427> (8802)
upon the throne
<03678>
of David
<01732>_,
and of all the people
<05971>
that dwelleth
<03427> (8802)
in this city
<05892>_,
[and] of your brethren
<0251>
that are not gone forth
<03318> (8804)
with you into captivity
<01473>_;
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_;
Behold, I will send
<07971> (8764)
upon them the sword
<02719>_,
the famine
<07458>_,
and the pestilence
<01698>_,
and will make
<05414> (8804)
them like vile
<08182>
figs
<08384>_,
that cannot be eaten
<0398> (8735)_,
they are so evil
<07455>_.
And I will persecute
<07291> (8804)
them
<0310>
with the sword
<02719>_,
with the famine
<07458>_,
and with the pestilence
<01698>_,
and will deliver
<05414> (8804)
them to be removed
<02189> (8675) <02113>
to all the kingdoms
<04467>
of the earth
<0776>_,
to be a curse
<0423>_,
and an astonishment
<08047>_,
and an hissing
<08322>_,
and a reproach
<02781>_,
among all the nations
<01471>
whither I have driven
<05080> (8689)
them: {to be a curse: Heb. for a curse}
Because they have not hearkened
<08085> (8804)
to my words
<01697>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
which I sent
<07971> (8804)
unto them by my servants
<05650>
the prophets
<05030>_,
rising up early
<07925> (8687)
and sending
<07971> (8800)
[them]; but ye would not hear
<08085> (8804)_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
Hear
<08085> (8798)
ye therefore the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
all ye of the captivity
<01473>_,
whom I have sent
<07971> (8765)
from Jerusalem
<03389>
to Babylon
<0894>_:
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
of Ahab
<0256>
the son
<01121>
of Kolaiah
<06964>_,
and of Zedekiah
<06667>
the son
<01121>
of Maaseiah
<04641>_,
which prophesy
<05012> (8737)
a lie
<08267>
unto you in my name
<08034>_;
Behold, I will deliver
<05414> (8802)
them into the hand
<03027>
of Nebuchadrezzar
<05019>
king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>_;
and he shall slay
<05221> (8689)
them before your eyes
<05869>_;
And of them shall be taken up
<03947> (8795)
a curse
<07045>
by all the captivity
<01546>
of Judah
<03063>
which [are] in Babylon
<0894>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
The LORD
<03068>
make
<07760> (8799)
thee like Zedekiah
<06667>
and like Ahab
<0256>_,
whom the king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>
roasted
<07033> (8804)
in the fire
<0784>_;
Because they have committed
<06213> (8804)
villany
<05039>
in Israel
<03478>_,
and have committed
<06213> (8804)
adultery
<05003> (8762)
with their neighbours
<07453>_'
wives
<0802>_,
and have spoken
<01696> (8762)
lying
<08267>
words
<01697>
in my name
<08034>_,
which I have not commanded
<06680> (8765)
them; even I know
<03045> (8802)_,
and [am] a witness
<05707>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
[Thus] shalt thou also speak
<0559> (8799)
to Shemaiah
<08098>
the Nehelamite
<05161>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
{Nehelamite: or, dreamer}
Thus speaketh
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Because thou hast sent
<07971> (8804)
letters
<05612>
in thy name
<08034>
unto all the people
<05971>
that [are] at Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and to Zephaniah
<06846>
the son
<01121>
of Maaseiah
<04641>
the priest
<03548>_,
and to all the priests
<03548>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
The LORD
<03068>
hath made
<05414> (8804)
thee priest
<03548>
in the stead of Jehoiada
<03077>
the priest
<03548>_,
that ye should be officers
<06496>
in the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
for every man
<0376>
[that is] mad
<07696> (8794)_,
and maketh himself a prophet
<05012> (8693)_,
that thou shouldest put
<05414> (8804)
him in prison
<04115>_,
and in the stocks
<06729>_.
Now therefore why hast thou not reproved
<01605> (8804)
Jeremiah
<03414>
of Anathoth
<06069>_,
which maketh himself a prophet
<05012> (8693)
to you?
For therefore he sent
<07971> (8804)
unto us [in] Babylon
<0894>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
This
<01931>
[captivity is] long
<0752>_:
build
<01129> (8798)
ye houses
<01004>_,
and dwell
<03427> (8798)
[in them]; and plant
<05193> (8798)
gardens
<01593>_,
and eat
<0398> (8798)
the fruit
<06529>
of them.
And Zephaniah
<06846>
the priest
<03548>
read
<07121> (8799)
this letter
<05612>
in the ears
<0241>
of Jeremiah
<03414>
the prophet
<05030>_.
Then came the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
unto Jeremiah
<03414>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Send
<07971> (8798)
to all them of the captivity
<01473>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
concerning Shemaiah
<08098>
the Nehelamite
<05161>_;
Because that Shemaiah
<08098>
hath prophesied
<05012> (8738)
unto you, and I sent
<07971> (8804)
him not, and he caused you to trust
<0982> (8686)
in a lie
<08267>_:
Therefore thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
Behold, I will punish
<06485> (8802)
Shemaiah
<08098>
the Nehelamite
<05161>_,
and his seed
<02233>_:
he shall not have a man
<0376>
to dwell
<03427> (8802)
among
<08432>
this people
<05971>_;
neither shall he behold
<07200> (8799)
the good
<02896>
that I will do
<06213> (8802)
for my people
<05971>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_;
because he hath taught
<01696> (8765)
rebellion
<05627>
against the LORD
<03068>_.
{rebellion: Heb. revolt}
