Jeremiah 7:7  Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that  I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever.  
Jeremiah 7:8 Behold, ye trust in lying words, that cannot profit.  
Jeremiah 7:9 Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and  swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal, and walk after  other gods whom ye know not; 
Jeremiah 7:10 And come and stand  before me in this house, which is called by my name, and  say, We are delivered to do all these abominations? 
Jeremiah 7:11  Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of  robbers in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it, saith the  LORD. 
Jeremiah 7:12 But go ye now unto my place which was in  Shiloh, where I set my name at the first, and see what I did  to it for the wickedness of my people Israel. 
Jeremiah 7:13 And  now, because ye have done all these works, saith the  LORD, and I spake unto you, rising up early and speaking,  but ye heard not; and I called you, but ye answered not;  
Jeremiah 7:14 Therefore will I do unto this house, which is called  by my name, wherein ye trust, and unto the place which I  gave to you and to your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh.  
Jeremiah 7:15 And I will cast you out of my sight, as I have cast out all your brethren, even the whole seed of Ephraim.   
Jeremiah 7:16 Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift  up cry nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to me:  for I will not hear thee.

Jeremiah 7:18 The children gather  wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead  their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to  pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may  provoke me to anger. 
Jeremiah 7:19 Do they provoke me to anger?  saith the LORD: do they not provoke themselves to the  confusion of their own faces? 
Jeremiah 7:20 Therefore thus saith  the Lord GOD; Behold, mine anger and my fury shall be  poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and  upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground;  and it shall burn, and shall not be quenched.  
Jeremiah 7:21 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel;  Put your burnt offerings unto your sacrifices, and eat flesh.  
Jeremiah 7:22 For I spake not unto your fathers, nor commanded  them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt,  concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices: 
Jeremiah 7:23 But this  thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will  be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all  the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well  unto you. 
Jeremiah 7:24 But they hearkened not, nor inclined their  ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of  their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.  
Jeremiah 7:25 Since the day that your fathers came forth out of the  land of Egypt unto this day I have even sent unto you all my  servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending  them: 
Jeremiah 7:26 Yet they hearkened not unto me, nor  inclined their ear, but hardened their neck: they did worse  than their fathers. 
Jeremiah 7:27 Therefore thou shalt speak all  these words unto them; but they will not hearken to thee:  thou shalt also call unto them; but they will not answer thee.  
Jeremiah 7:28 But thou shalt say unto them, This is a nation that  obeyeth not the voice of the LORD their God, nor receiveth  correction: truth is perished, and is cut off from their mouth.

Jeremiah 7:31 And they have built the high places of Tophet,  which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to burn their  sons and their daughters in the fire; which I commanded  them not, neither came it into my heart.

Jeremiah 8:1 At that time, saith the LORD, they shall bring out  the bones of the kings of Judah, and the bones of his  princes, and the bones of the priests, and the bones of the  prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, out  of their graves: 
Jeremiah 8:2 And they shall spread them before the  sun, and the moon, and all the host of heaven, whom they  have loved, and whom they have served, and after whom  they have walked, and whom they have sought, and whom  they have worshipped: they shall not be gathered, nor be  buried; they shall be for dung upon the face of the earth.   
Jeremiah 8:3 And death shall be chosen rather than life by all the  residue of them that remain of this evil family, which  remain in all the places whither I have driven them, saith the  LORD of hosts.  
Jeremiah 8:4 Moreover thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the  LORD; Shall they fall, and not arise? shall he turn away,  and not return? 
Jeremiah 8:5 Why then is this people of  Jerusalem slidden back by a perpetual backsliding? they  hold fast deceit, they refuse to return.

Jeremiah 8:11 For they have healed the hurt of  the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace;  when there is no peace. 
Jeremiah 8:12 Were they ashamed when  they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all  ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall  among them that fall: in the time of their visitation they  shall be cast down, saith the LORD.  
Jeremiah 8:13 I will surely consume them, saith the LORD:  there shall be no grapes on the vine, nor figs on the fig  tree, and the leaf shall fade; and the things that I have  given them shall pass away from them. 
Jeremiah 8:14 Why do we  sit still? assemble yourselves, and let us enter into the  defenced cities, and let us be silent there: for the LORD our  God hath put us to silence, and given us water of gall to  drink, because we have sinned against the LORD. 
Jeremiah 8:15  We looked for peace, but no good came; and for a time of  health, and behold trouble! 
Jeremiah 8:16 The snorting of his  horses was heard from Dan: the whole land trembled at the  sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they are come,  and have devoured the land, and all that is in it; the city, and  those that dwell therein. 
Jeremiah 8:17 For, behold, I will send  serpents, cockatrices, among you, which will not be  charmed, and they shall bite you, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 8:19 Behold the voice of the cry  of the daughter of my people because of them that dwell in  a far country: Is not the LORD in Zion? is not her king  in her? Why have they provoked me to anger with their  graven images, and with strange vanities?

Jeremiah 9:10 For the mountains will I take up a weeping and  wailing, and for the habitations of the wilderness a  lamentation, because they are burned up, so that none can  pass through them; neither can men hear the voice of the  cattle; both the fowl of the heavens and the beast are fled;  they are gone. 
Jeremiah 9:11 And I will make Jerusalem heaps,  and a den of dragons; and I will make the cities of Judah  desolate, without an inhabitant.

Jeremiah 11:5  That I may perform the oath which I have sworn unto your  fathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey, as  it is this day. Then answered I, and said, So be it, O  LORD. 
Jeremiah 11:6 Then the LORD said unto me, Proclaim all  these words in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of  Jerusalem, saying, Hear ye the words of this covenant, and  do them. 
Jeremiah 11:7 For I earnestly protested unto your fathers  in the day that I brought them up out of the land of Egypt,  even unto this day, rising early and protesting, saying,  Obey my voice.

Jeremiah 11:9 And the LORD said unto me, A  conspiracy is found among the men of Judah, and among  the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

Jeremiah 18:4 And the vessel that  he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he  made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter  to make it. 
Jeremiah 18:5 Then the word of the LORD came to  me, saying, 
Jeremiah 18:6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you  as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in  the potter’s hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of  Israel. 
Jeremiah 18:7 At what instant I shall speak concerning a  nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull  down, and to destroy it;

Jeremiah 18:9 And at  what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and  concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it; 
Jeremiah 18:10 If  it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will  repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.  
Jeremiah 18:11 Now therefore go to, speak to the men of Judah,  and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying, Thus saith the  LORD; Behold, I frame evil against you, and devise a  device against you: return ye now every one from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good.

Jeremiah 18:17 I will scatter them as  with an east wind before the enemy; I will shew them the  back, and not the face, in the day of their calamity.   
Jeremiah 18:18 Then said they, Come, and let us devise devices  against 
Jeremiah; for the law shall not perish from the  priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the  prophet. Come, and let us smite him with the tongue, and let  us not give heed to any of his words.

Jeremiah 18:22 Let a cry be heard from their houses, when thou  shalt bring a troop suddenly upon them: for they have  digged a pit to take me, and hid snares for my feet.

Jeremiah 19:1 Thus saith the LORD, Go and get a potter’s  earthen bottle, and take of the ancients of the people, and  of the ancients of the priests; 
Jeremiah 19:2 And go forth unto the  valley of the son of Hinnom, which is by the entry of the  east gate, and proclaim there the words that I shall tell thee,  
Jeremiah 19:3 And say, Hear ye the word of the LORD, O kings of  Judah, and inhabitants of Jerusalem; Thus saith the LORD  of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring evil upon  this place, the which whosoever heareth, his ears shall  tingle. 
Jeremiah 19:4 Because they have forsaken me, and have  estranged this place, and have burned incense in it unto  other gods, whom neither they nor their fathers have known,  nor the kings of Judah, and have filled this place with the  blood of innocents; 
Jeremiah 19:5 They have built also the high  places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt  offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake it,  neither came it into my mind: 
Jeremiah 19:6 Therefore, behold,  the days come, saith the LORD, that this place shall no  more be called Tophet, nor The valley of the son of  Hinnom, but The valley of slaughter. 
Jeremiah 19:7 And I will  make void the counsel of Judah and Jerusalem in this place;  and I will cause them to fall by the sword before their  enemies, and by the hands of them that seek their lives: and  their carcases will I give to be meat for the fowls of the  heaven, and for the beasts of the earth. 
Jeremiah 19:8 And I will  make this city desolate, and an hissing; every one that  passeth thereby shall be astonished and hiss because of all  the plagues thereof. 
Jeremiah 19:9 And I will cause them to eat the  flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they  shall eat every one the flesh of his friend in the siege and  straitness, wherewith their enemies, and they that seek their  lives, shall straiten them. 
Jeremiah 19:10 Then shalt thou break the  bottle in the sight of the men that go with thee, 
Jeremiah 19:11 And  shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Even so  will I break this people and this city, as one breaketh a  potter’s vessel, that cannot be made whole again: and they  shall bury them in Tophet, till there be no place to bury.   
Jeremiah 19:12 Thus will I do unto this place, saith the LORD, and  to the inhabitants thereof, and even make this city as  Tophet: 
Jeremiah 19:13 And the houses of Jerusalem, and the  houses of the kings of Judah, shall be defiled as the place of  Tophet, because of all the houses upon whose roofs they  have burned incense unto all the host of heaven, and have  poured out drink offerings unto other gods. 
Jeremiah 19:14 Then  came 
Jeremiah from Tophet, whither the LORD had sent  him to prophesy; and he stood in the court of the LORD’S  house; and said to all the people, 
Jeremiah 19:15 Thus saith the  LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring upon  this city and upon all her towns all the evil that I have  pronounced against it, because they have hardened their  necks, that they might not hear my words.  
Jeremiah 20:1 Now Pashur the son of Immer the priest, who  was also chief governor in the house of the LORD, heard  that 
Jeremiah prophesied these things. 
Jeremiah 20:2 Then Pashur  smote 
Jeremiah the prophet, and put him in the stocks that  were in the high gate of Benjamin, which was by the  house of the LORD. 
Jeremiah 20:3 And it came to pass on the  morrow, that Pashur brought forth 
Jeremiah out of the  stocks. Then said 
Jeremiah unto him, The LORD hath not  called thy name Pashur, but Magor-missabib. 
Jeremiah 20:4 For  thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will make thee a terror to  thyself, and to all thy friends: and they shall fall by the  sword of their enemies, and thine eyes shall behold it: and  I will give all Judah into the hand of the king of Babylon,  and he shall carry them captive into Babylon, and shall slay  them with the sword. 
Jeremiah 20:5 Moreover I will deliver all the  strength of this city, and all the labours thereof, and all the  precious things thereof, and all the treasures of the kings of  Judah will I give into the hand of their enemies, which shall  spoil them, and take them, and carry them to Babylon.  
Jeremiah 20:6 And thou, Pashur, and all that dwell in thine house  shall go into captivity: and thou shalt come to Babylon, and  there thou shalt die, and shalt be buried there, thou, and all  thy friends, to whom thou hast prophesied lies.  
Jeremiah 20:7 O LORD, thou hast deceived me, and I was  deceived: thou art stronger than I, and hast prevailed: I am  in derision daily, every one mocketh me. 
Jeremiah 20:8 For since I  spake, I cried out, I cried violence and spoil; because the  word of the LORD was made a reproach unto me, and a  derision, daily. 
Jeremiah 20:9 Then I said, I will not make mention  of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was  in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I  was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.  
Jeremiah 20:10 For I heard the defaming of many, fear on every  side. Report, say they, and we will report it. All my  familiars watched for my halting, saying, Peradventure he  will be enticed, and we shall prevail against him, and we  shall take our revenge on him. 
Jeremiah 20:11 But the LORD is  with me as a mighty terrible one: therefore my persecutors  shall stumble, and they shall not prevail: they shall be  greatly ashamed; for they shall not prosper: their  everlasting confusion shall never be forgotten. 
Jeremiah 20:12 But,  O LORD of hosts, that triest the righteous, and seest the  reins and the heart, let me see thy vengeance on them: for  unto thee have I opened my cause. 
Jeremiah 20:13 Sing unto the LORD, praise ye the LORD: for he hath delivered the soul  of the poor from the hand of evildoers.   
Jeremiah 20:14 Cursed be the day wherein I was born: let not  the day wherein my mother bare me be blessed. 
Jeremiah 20:15  Cursed be the man who brought tidings to my father,  saying, A man child is born unto thee; making him very  glad. 
Jeremiah 20:16 And let that man be as the cities which the  LORD overthrew, and repented not: and let him hear the cry  in the morning, and the shouting at noontide; 
Jeremiah 20:17  Because he slew me not from the womb; or that my mother  might have been my grave, and her womb to be always  great with me. 
Jeremiah 20:18 Wherefore came I forth out of the  womb to see labour and sorrow, that my days should be  consumed with shame?  
Jeremiah 21:1 The word which came unto 
Jeremiah from the  LORD, when king Zedekiah sent unto him Pashur the son  of Melchiah, and Zephaniah the son of Maaseiah the priest,  saying, 
Jeremiah 21:2 Enquire, I pray thee, of the LORD for us; for  Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon maketh war against us; if  so be that the LORD will deal with us according to all his  wondrous works, that he may go up from us. 
Jeremiah 21:3 Then  said 
Jeremiah unto them, Thus shall ye say to Zedekiah:  
Jeremiah 21:4 Thus saith the LORD God of Israel; Behold, I will  turn back the weapons of war that are in your hands,  wherewith ye fight against the king of Babylon, and  against the Chaldeans, which besiege you without the walls,  and I will assemble them into the midst of this city. 
Jeremiah 21:5  And I myself will fight against you with an outstretched  hand and with a strong arm, even in anger, and in fury, and  in great wrath. 
Jeremiah 21:6 And I will smite the inhabitants of  this city, both man and beast: they shall die of a great  pestilence. 
Jeremiah 21:7 And afterward, saith the LORD, I will  deliver Zedekiah king of Judah, and his servants, and the  people, and such as are left in this city from the pestilence,  from the sword, and from the famine, into the hand of  Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and into the hand of their  enemies, and into the hand of those that seek their life: and  he shall smite them with the edge of the sword; he shall not  spare them, neither have pity, nor have mercy.  
Jeremiah 21:8 And unto this people thou shalt say, Thus saith the  LORD; Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the  way of death. 
Jeremiah 21:9 He that abideth in this city shall die by  the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence: but he  that goeth out, and falleth to the Chaldeans that besiege you,  he shall live, and his life shall be unto him for a prey.  
Jeremiah 21:10 For I have set my face against this city for evil, and  not for good, saith the LORD: it shall be given into the hand  of the king of Babylon, and he shall burn it with fire.  
Jeremiah 21:11 And touching the house of the king of Judah, say,  Hear ye the word of the LORD; 
Jeremiah 21:12 O house of David,  thus saith the LORD; Execute judgment in the morning, and  deliver him that is spoiled out of the hand of the  oppressor, lest my fury go out like fire, and burn that none  can quench it, because of the evil of your doings. 
Jeremiah 21:13  Behold, I am against thee, O inhabitant of the valley, and  rock of the plain, saith the LORD; which say, Who shall  come down against us? or who shall enter into our  habitations? 
Jeremiah 21:14 But I will punish you according to the  fruit of your doings, saith the LORD: and I will kindle a fire  in the forest thereof, and it shall devour all things round  about it.  
Jeremiah 22:1 Thus saith the LORD; Go down to the house of the  king of Judah, and speak there this word, 
Jeremiah 22:2 And say,  Hear the word of the LORD, O king of Judah, that sittest  upon the throne of David, thou, and thy servants, and thy  people that enter in by these gates: 
Jeremiah 22:3 Thus saith the  LORD; Execute ye judgment and righteousness, and deliver  the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor: and do no  wrong, do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, nor the  widow, neither shed innocent blood in this place. 
Jeremiah 22:4  For if ye do this thing indeed, then shall there enter in by the  gates of this house kings sitting upon the throne of David,  riding in chariots and on horses, he, and his servants, and  his people. 
Jeremiah 22:5 But if ye will not hear these words, I  swear by myself, saith the LORD, that this house shall  become a desolation. 
Jeremiah 22:6 For thus saith the LORD unto  the king’s house of Judah; Thou art Gilead unto me, and  the head of Lebanon: yet surely I will make thee a  wilderness, and cities which are not inhabited. 
Jeremiah 22:7  And I will prepare destroyers against thee, every one with  his weapons: and they shall cut down thy choice cedars, and  cast them into the fire. 
Jeremiah 22:8 And many nations shall  pass by this city, and they shall say every man to his  neighbour, Wherefore hath the LORD done thus unto this  great city? 
Jeremiah 22:9 Then they shall answer, Because they  have forsaken the covenant of the LORD their God, and  worshipped other gods, and served them.   
Jeremiah 22:10 Weep ye not for the dead, neither bemoan him:  but weep sore for him that goeth away: for he shall return  no more, nor see his native country. 
Jeremiah 22:11 For thus saith  the LORD touching Shallum the son of Josiah king of  Judah, which reigned instead of Josiah his father, which  went forth out of this place; He shall not return thither any  more: 
Jeremiah 22:12 But he shall die in the place whither they  have led him captive, and shall see this land no more.  
Jeremiah 22:13 Woe unto him that buildeth his house by  unrighteousness, and his chambers by wrong; that useth  his neighbour’s service without wages, and giveth him not  for his work; 
Jeremiah 22:14 That saith, I will build me a wide  house and large chambers, and cutteth him out windows;  and it is cieled with cedar, and painted with vermilion.  
Jeremiah 22:15 Shalt thou reign, because thou closest thyself in  cedar? did not thy father eat and drink, and do judgment and  justice, and then it was well with him? 
Jeremiah 22:16 He  judged the cause of the poor and needy; then it was well  with him: was not this to know me? saith the LORD.  
Jeremiah 22:17 But thine eyes and thine heart are not but for thy  covetousness, and for to shed innocent blood, and for  oppression, and for violence, to do it. 
Jeremiah 22:18 Therefore  thus saith the LORD concerning Jehoiakim the son of  Josiah king of Judah; They shall not lament for him,  saying, Ah my brother! or, Ah sister! they shall not lament  for him, saying, Ah lord! or, Ah his glory! 
Jeremiah 22:19 He  shall be buried with the burial of an ass, drawn and cast  forth beyond the gates of Jerusalem.  
Jeremiah 22:20 Go up to Lebanon, and cry; and lift up thy voice  in Bashan, and cry from the passages: for all thy lovers are  destroyed. 
Jeremiah 22:21 I spake unto thee in thy prosperity; but  thou saidst, I will not hear. This hath been thy manner  from thy youth, that thou obeyedst not my voice. 
Jeremiah 22:22  The wind shall eat up all thy pastors, and thy lovers shall go  into captivity: surely then shalt thou be ashamed and  confounded for all thy wickedness. 
Jeremiah 22:23 O inhabitant of  Lebanon, that makest thy nest in the cedars, how gracious  shalt thou be when pangs come upon thee, the pain as of a  woman in travail! 
Jeremiah 22:24 As I live, saith the LORD,  though Coniah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah were the  signet upon my right hand, yet would I pluck thee thence;  
Jeremiah 22:25 And I will give thee into the hand of them that seek  thy life, and into the hand of them whose face thou fearest, even into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and  into the hand of the Chaldeans. 
Jeremiah 22:26 And I will cast thee  out, and thy mother that bare thee, into another country,  where ye were not born; and there shall ye die. 
Jeremiah 22:27 But  to the land whereunto they desire to return, thither shall they  not return. 
Jeremiah 22:28 Is this man Coniah a despised broken  idol? is he a vessel wherein is no pleasure? wherefore  are they cast out, he and his seed, and are cast into a land  which they know not? 
Jeremiah 22:29 O earth, earth, earth, hear  the word of the LORD. 
Jeremiah 22:30 Thus saith the LORD,  Write ye this man childless, a man that shall not prosper in  his days: for no man of his seed shall prosper, sitting upon  the throne of David, and ruling any more in Judah.   
Jeremiah 23:1 Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter  the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD. 
Jeremiah 23:2 Therefore  thus saith the LORD God of Israel against the pastors that  feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven  them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit  upon you the evil of your doings, saith the LORD. 
Jeremiah 23:3  And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all  countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them  again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.  
Jeremiah 23:4 And I will set up shepherds over them which shall  feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed,  neither shall they be lacking, saith the LORD.  
Jeremiah 23:5 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will  raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign  and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the  earth. 
Jeremiah 23:6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel  shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall  be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS. 
Jeremiah 23:7  Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they  shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the  children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; 
Jeremiah 23:8 But, The  LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of  the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all  countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in  their own land.  
Jeremiah 23:9 Mine heart within me is broken because of the  prophets; all my bones shake; I am like a drunken man, and  like a man whom wine hath overcome, because of the  LORD, and because of the words of his holiness. 
Jeremiah 23:10  For the land is full of adulterers; for because of swearing the  land mourneth; the pleasant places of the wilderness are  dried up, and their course is evil, and their force is not  right. 
Jeremiah 23:11 For both prophet and priest are profane; yea,  in my house have I found their wickedness, saith the LORD.  
Jeremiah 23:12 Wherefore their way shall be unto them as slippery  ways in the darkness: they shall be driven on, and fall  therein: for I will bring evil upon them, even the year of  their visitation, saith the LORD. 
Jeremiah 23:13 And I have seen  folly in the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied in Baal,  and caused my people Israel to err. 
Jeremiah 23:14 I have seen also  in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit  adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of  evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they  are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants  thereof as Gomorrah. 
Jeremiah 23:15 Therefore thus saith the  LORD of hosts concerning the prophets; Behold, I will feed  them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of  gall: for from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness gone  forth into all the land. 
Jeremiah 23:16 Thus saith the LORD of  hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that  prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision  of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD.  
Jeremiah 23:17 They say still unto them that despise me, The  LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto  every one that walketh after the imagination of his own  heart, No evil shall come upon you. 
Jeremiah 23:18 For who hath  stood in the counsel of the LORD, and hath perceived and  heard his word? who hath marked his word, and heard it?  
Jeremiah 23:19 Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in  fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously  upon the head of the wicked. 
Jeremiah 23:20 The anger of the  LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he  have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days  ye shall consider it perfectly. 
Jeremiah 23:21 I have not sent these  prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they  prophesied. 
Jeremiah 23:22 But if they had stood in my counsel,  and had caused my people to hear my words, then they  should have turned them from their evil way, and from the  evil of their doings. 
Jeremiah 23:23 Am I a God at hand, saith the  LORD, and not a God afar off? 
Jeremiah 23:24 Can any hide  himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the  LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.   
Jeremiah 23:25 I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy  lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.  
Jeremiah 23:26 How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets  that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of  their own heart; 
Jeremiah 23:27 Which think to cause my people to  forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man  to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name  for Baal. 
Jeremiah 23:28 The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell  a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word  faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the LORD.  
Jeremiah 23:29 Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD;  and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?  
Jeremiah 23:30 Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets,  saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his  neighbour. 
Jeremiah 23:31 Behold, I am against the prophets,  saith the LORD, that use their tongues, and say, He saith.  
Jeremiah 23:32 Behold, I am against them that prophesy false  dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my  people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent  them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not  profit this people at all, saith the LORD.  
Jeremiah 23:33 And when this people, or the prophet, or a priest,  shall ask thee, saying, What is the burden of the LORD?  thou shalt then say unto them, What burden? I will even  forsake you, saith the LORD. 
Jeremiah 23:34 And as for the  prophet, and the priest, and the people, that shall say, The  burden of the LORD, I will even punish that man and his  house. 
Jeremiah 23:35 Thus shall ye say every one to his  neighbour, and every one to his brother, What hath the  LORD answered? and, What hath the LORD spoken?  
Jeremiah 23:36 And the burden of the LORD shall ye mention no  more: for every man’s word shall be his burden; for ye have  perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts  our God. 
Jeremiah 23:37 Thus shalt thou say to the prophet, What  hath the LORD answered thee? and, What hath the LORD  spoken? 
Jeremiah 23:38 But since ye say, The burden of the  LORD; therefore thus saith the LORD; Because ye say this  word, The burden of the LORD, and I have sent unto you,  saying, Ye shall not say, The burden of the LORD; 
Jeremiah 23:39  Therefore, behold, I, even I, will utterly forget you, and I  will forsake you, and the city that I gave you and your  fathers, and cast you out of my presence: 
Jeremiah 23:40 And I  will bring an everlasting reproach upon you, and a perpetual  shame, which shall not be forgotten.  
Jeremiah 24:1 The LORD shewed me, and, behold, two baskets  of figs were set before the temple of the LORD, after that  Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon had carried away captive  Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah, and the    
Jeremiah Page 460   princes of Judah, with the carpenters and smiths, from  Jerusalem, and had brought them to Babylon. 
Jeremiah 24:2 One  basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are  first ripe: and the other basket had very naughty figs,  which could not be eaten, they were so bad. 
Jeremiah 24:3 Then  said the LORD unto me, What seest thou, 
Jeremiah? And I  said, Figs; the good figs, very good; and the evil, very evil,  that cannot be eaten, they are so evil.   
Jeremiah 24:4 Again the word of the LORD came unto me,  saying, 
Jeremiah 24:5 Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel;  Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are  carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this  place into the land of the Chaldeans for their good. 
Jeremiah 24:6  For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will  bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not  pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck  them up. 
Jeremiah 24:7 And I will give them an heart to know  me, that I am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and  I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their  whole heart.  
Jeremiah 24:8 And as the evil figs, which cannot be eaten, they  are so evil; surely thus saith the LORD, So will I give  Zedekiah the king of Judah, and his princes, and the residue  of Jerusalem, that remain in this land, and them that dwell  in the land of Egypt: 
Jeremiah 24:9 And I will deliver them to be  removed into all the kingdoms of the earth for their hurt,  to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all  places whither I shall drive them. 
Jeremiah 24:10 And I will send  the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, among them, till  they be consumed from off the land that I gave unto them  and to their fathers.  
Jeremiah 25:1 The word that came to 
Jeremiah concerning all the  people of Judah in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of  Josiah king of Judah, that was the first year of  Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon; 
Jeremiah 25:2 The which  
Jeremiah the prophet spake unto all the people of Judah, and  to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying, 
Jeremiah 25:3 From the  thirteenth year of Josiah the son of Amon king of Judah,  even unto this day, that is the three and twentieth year, the  word of the LORD hath come unto me, and I have spoken  unto you, rising early and speaking; but ye have not  hearkened. 
Jeremiah 25:4 And the LORD hath sent unto you all his  servants the prophets, rising early and sending them; but  ye have not hearkened, nor inclined your ear to hear. 
Jeremiah 25:5  They said, Turn ye again now every one from his evil way,  and from the evil of your doings, and dwell in the land that  the LORD hath given unto you and to your fathers for ever  and ever: 
Jeremiah 25:6 And go not after other gods to serve them,  and to worship them, and provoke me not to anger with the  works of your hands; and I will do you no hurt. 
Jeremiah 25:7 Yet  ye have not hearkened unto me, saith the LORD; that ye  might provoke me to anger with the works of your hands to  your own hurt.  
Jeremiah 25:8 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Because  ye have not heard my words, 
Jeremiah 25:9 Behold, I will send and  take all the families of the north, saith the LORD, and  Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my servant, and will  bring them against this land, and against the inhabitants  thereof, and against all these nations round about, and will  utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and  an hissing, and perpetual desolations. 
Jeremiah 25:10 Moreover I  will take from them the voice of mirth, and the voice of  gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the  bride, the sound of the millstones, and the light of the  candle. 
Jeremiah 25:11 And this whole land shall be a desolation,  and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the  king of Babylon seventy years.   
Jeremiah 25:12 And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are  accomplished, that I will punish the king of Babylon, and  that nation, saith the LORD, for their iniquity, and the land  of the Chaldeans, and will make it perpetual desolations.  
Jeremiah 25:13 And I will bring upon that land all my words which  I have pronounced against it, even all that is written in this  book, which 
Jeremiah hath prophesied against all the  nations. 
Jeremiah 25:14 For many nations and great kings shall  serve themselves of them also: and I will recompense them  according to their deeds, and according to the works of their  own hands.  
Jeremiah 25:15 For thus saith the LORD God of Israel unto me;  Take the wine cup of this fury at my hand, and cause all the  nations, to whom I send thee, to drink it. 
Jeremiah 25:16 And they  shall drink, and be moved, and be mad, because of the  sword that I will send among them. 
Jeremiah 25:17 Then took I the  cup at the LORD’S hand, and made all the nations to drink,  unto whom the LORD had sent me: 
Jeremiah 25:18 To wit,  Jerusalem, and the cities of Judah, and the kings thereof,  and the princes thereof, to make them a desolation, an  astonishment, an hissing, and a curse; as it is this day;  
Jeremiah 25:19 Pharaoh king of Egypt, and his servants, and his  princes, and all his people; 
Jeremiah 25:20 And all the mingled  people, and all the kings of the land of Uz, and all the kings  of the land of the Philistines, and Ashkelon, and Azzah, and  Ekron, and the remnant of Ashdod, 
Jeremiah 25:21 Edom, and  Moab, and the children of Ammon, 
Jeremiah 25:22 And all the  kings of Tyrus, and all the kings of Zidon, and the kings of  the isles which are beyond the sea, 
Jeremiah 25:23 Dedan, and  Tema, and Buz, and all that are in the utmost corners,  
Jeremiah 25:24 And all the kings of Arabia, and all the kings of the  mingled people that dwell in the desert, 
Jeremiah 25:25 And all the  kings of Zimri, and all the kings of Elam, and all the kings  of the Medes, 
Jeremiah 25:26 And all the kings of the north, far  and near, one with another, and all the kingdoms of the  world, which are upon the face of the earth: and the king  of Sheshach shall drink after them. 
Jeremiah 25:27 Therefore thou  shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God  of Israel; Drink ye, and be drunken, and spue, and fall, and  rise no more, because of the sword which I will send among  you. 
Jeremiah 25:28 And it shall be, if they refuse to take the cup at  thine hand to drink, then shalt thou say unto them, Thus  saith the LORD of hosts; Ye shall certainly drink. 
Jeremiah 25:29  For, lo, I begin to bring evil on the city which is called by  my name, and should ye be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not  be unpunished: for I will call for a sword upon all the  inhabitants of the earth, saith the LORD of hosts. 
Jeremiah 25:30  Therefore prophesy thou against them all these words, and  say unto them, The LORD shall roar from on high, and utter  his voice from his holy habitation; he shall mightily roar  upon his habitation; he shall give a shout, as they that tread  the grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth. 
Jeremiah 25:31  A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth; for the  LORD hath a controversy with the nations, he will plead  with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the  sword, saith the LORD. 
Jeremiah 25:32 Thus saith the LORD of  hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and  a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the  earth. 
Jeremiah 25:33 And the slain of the LORD shall be at that  day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of  the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor  buried; they shall be dung upon the ground.  
Jeremiah 25:34 Howl, ye shepherds, and cry; and wallow  yourselves in the ashes, ye principal of the flock: for the days of your slaughter and of your dispersions are  accomplished; and ye shall fall like a pleasant vessel.   
Jeremiah 25:35 And the shepherds shall have no way to flee, nor  the principal of the flock to escape. 
Jeremiah 25:36 A voice of the  cry of the shepherds, and an howling of the principal of the  flock, shall be heard: for the LORD hath spoiled their  pasture. 
Jeremiah 25:37 And the peaceable habitations are cut  down because of the fierce anger of the LORD. 
Jeremiah 25:38 He  hath forsaken his covert, as the lion: for their land is  desolate because of the fierceness of the oppressor, and  because of his fierce anger.  
Jeremiah 26:1 In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim the son  of Josiah king of Judah came this word from the LORD,  saying, 
Jeremiah 26:2 Thus saith the LORD; Stand in the court of  the LORD’S house, and speak unto all the cities of Judah,  which come to worship in the LORD’S house, all the words  that I command thee to speak unto them; diminish not a  word: 
Jeremiah 26:3 If so be they will hearken, and turn every man  from his evil way, that I may repent me of the evil, which I  purpose to do unto them because of the evil of their doings.  
Jeremiah 26:4 And thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD;  If ye will not hearken to me, to walk in my law, which I  have set before you, 
Jeremiah 26:5 To hearken to the words of my  servants the prophets, whom I sent unto you, both rising up  early, and sending them, but ye have not hearkened;  
Jeremiah 26:6 Then will I make this house like Shiloh, and will  make this city a curse to all the nations of the earth. 
Jeremiah 26:7  So the priests and the prophets and all the people heard  
Jeremiah speaking these words in the house of the LORD.  
Jeremiah 26:8 Now it came to pass, when 
Jeremiah had made an  end of speaking all that the LORD had commanded him to  speak unto all the people, that the priests and the prophets  and all the people took him, saying, Thou shalt surely die.  
Jeremiah 26:9 Why hast thou prophesied in the name of the LORD,  saying, This house shall be like Shiloh, and this city shall be  desolate without an inhabitant? And all the people were  gathered against 
Jeremiah in the house of the LORD.  
Jeremiah 26:10 When the princes of Judah heard these things,  then they came up from the king’s house unto the house of  the LORD, and sat down in the entry of the new gate of the  LORD’S house. 
Jeremiah 26:11 Then spake the priests and the  prophets unto the princes and to all the people, saying, This  man is worthy to die; for he hath prophesied against this  city, as ye have heard with your ears.  
Jeremiah 26:12 Then spake 
Jeremiah unto all the princes and to  all the people, saying, The LORD sent me to prophesy  against this house and against this city all the words that ye  have heard. 
Jeremiah 26:13 Therefore now amend your ways and  your doings, and obey the voice of the LORD your God;  and the LORD will repent him of the evil that he hath  pronounced against you. 
Jeremiah 26:14 As for me, behold, I am  in your hand: do with me as seemeth good and meet unto  you. 
Jeremiah 26:15 But know ye for certain, that if ye put me to  death, ye shall surely bring innocent blood upon yourselves,  and upon this city, and upon the inhabitants thereof: for of a  truth the LORD hath sent me unto you to speak all these  words in your ears.  
Jeremiah 26:16 Then said the princes and all the people unto the  priests and to the prophets; This man is not worthy to die:  for he hath spoken to us in the name of the LORD our God.  
Jeremiah 26:17 Then rose up certain of the elders of the land, and  spake to all the assembly of the people, saying, 
Jeremiah 26:18  Micah the Morasthite prophesied in the days of Hezekiah  king of Judah, and spake to all the people of Judah, saying,  Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Zion shall be plowed like a  field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountain  of the house as the high places of a forest. 
Jeremiah 26:19 Did  Hezekiah king of Judah and all Judah put him at all to  death? did he not fear the LORD, and besought the LORD,  and the LORD repented him of the evil which he had  pronounced against them? Thus might we procure great evil  against our souls. 
Jeremiah 26:20 And there was also a man that  prophesied in the name of the LORD, Urijah the son of  Shemaiah of Kirjath-jearim, who prophesied against this  city and against this land according to all the words of  
Jeremiah 26:21 And when Jehoiakim the king, with all  his mighty men, and all the princes, heard his words, the  king sought to put him to death: but when Urijah heard it,  he was afraid, and fled, and went into Egypt; 
Jeremiah 26:22 And  Jehoiakim the king sent men into Egypt, namely, Elnathan  the son of Achbor, and certain men with him into Egypt.   
Jeremiah 26:23 And they fetched forth Urijah out of Egypt, and  brought him unto Jehoiakim the king; who slew him with  the sword, and cast his dead body into the graves of the  common people. 
Jeremiah 26:24 Nevertheless the hand of Ahikam  the son of Shaphan was with 
Jeremiah, that they should not  give him into the hand of the people to put him to death.  
Jeremiah 27:1 In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim the son  of Josiah king of Judah came this word unto 
Jeremiah from  the LORD, saying, 
Jeremiah 27:2 Thus saith the LORD to me;  Make thee bonds and yokes, and put them upon thy neck,  
Jeremiah 27:3 And send them to the king of Edom, and to the king  of Moab, and to the king of the Ammonites, and to the king  of Tyrus, and to the king of Zidon, by the hand of the  messengers which come to Jerusalem unto Zedekiah king of  Judah; 
Jeremiah 27:4 And command them to say unto their  masters, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel;  Thus shall ye say unto your masters; 
Jeremiah 27:5 I have made the  earth, the man and the beast that are upon the ground, by  my great power and by my outstretched arm, and have  given it unto whom it seemed meet unto me. 
Jeremiah 27:6 And  now have I given all these lands into the hand of  Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, my servant; and the  beasts of the field have I given him also to serve him.  
Jeremiah 27:7 And all nations shall serve him, and his son, and his  son’s son, until the very time of his land come: and then  many nations and great kings shall serve themselves of him.  
Jeremiah 27:8 And it shall come to pass, that the nation and  kingdom which will not serve the same Nebuchadnezzar the  king of Babylon, and that will not put their neck under the  yoke of the king of Babylon, that nation will I punish, saith  the LORD, with the sword, and with the famine, and with  the pestilence, until I have consumed them by his hand.  
Jeremiah 27:9 Therefore hearken not ye to your prophets, nor to  your diviners, nor to your dreamers, nor to your enchanters,  nor to your sorcerers, which speak unto you, saying, Ye  shall not serve the king of Babylon: 
Jeremiah 27:10 For they  prophesy a lie unto you, to remove you far from your land;  and that I should drive you out, and ye should perish.  
Jeremiah 27:11 But the nations that bring their neck under the yoke  of the king of Babylon, and serve him, those will I let  remain still in their own land, saith the LORD; and they  shall till it, and dwell therein.  
Jeremiah 27:12 I spake also to Zedekiah king of Judah according  to all these words, saying, Bring your necks under the yoke  of the king of Babylon, and serve him and his people, and  live. 
Jeremiah 27:13 Why will ye die, thou and thy people, by the  sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence, as the LORD  hath spoken against the nation that will not serve the king of  Babylon? 
Jeremiah 27:14 Therefore hearken not unto the words of  the prophets that speak unto you, saying, Ye shall not serve    
Jeremiah Page 462   the king of Babylon: for they prophesy a lie unto you.   
Jeremiah 27:15 For I have not sent them, saith the LORD, yet they  prophesy a lie in my name; that I might drive you out, and  that ye might perish, ye, and the prophets that prophesy unto  you. 
Jeremiah 27:16 Also I spake to the priests and to all this  people, saying, Thus saith the LORD; Hearken not to the  words of your prophets that prophesy unto you, saying,  Behold, the vessels of the LORD’S house shall now shortly  be brought again from Babylon: for they prophesy a lie unto  you. 
Jeremiah 27:17 Hearken not unto them; serve the king of  Babylon, and live: wherefore should this city be laid waste?  
Jeremiah 27:18 But if they be prophets, and if the word of the  LORD be with them, let them now make intercession to the  LORD of hosts, that the vessels which are left in the house  of the LORD, and in the house of the king of Judah, and at  Jerusalem, go not to Babylon.  
Jeremiah 27:19 For thus saith the LORD of hosts concerning the  pillars, and concerning the sea, and concerning the bases,  and concerning the residue of the vessels that remain in this  city, 
Jeremiah 27:20 Which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon took  not, when he carried away captive Jeconiah the son of  Jehoiakim king of Judah from Jerusalem to Babylon, and all  the nobles of Judah and Jerusalem; 
Jeremiah 27:21 Yea, thus saith  the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, concerning the  vessels that remain in the house of the LORD, and in the  house of the king of Judah and of Jerusalem; 
Jeremiah 27:22 They  shall be carried to Babylon, and there shall they be until the  day that I visit them, saith the LORD; then will I bring them  up, and restore them to this place.  
Jeremiah 28:1 And it came to pass the same year, in the  beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the  fourth year, and in the fifth month, that Hananiah the son  of Azur the prophet, which was of Gibeon, spake unto me  in the house of the LORD, in the presence of the priests and  of all the people, saying, 
Jeremiah 28:2 Thus speaketh the LORD  of hosts, the God of Israel, saying, I have broken the yoke  of the king of Babylon. 
Jeremiah 28:3 Within two full years will I  bring again into this place all the vessels of the LORD’S  house, that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon took away  from this place, and carried them to Babylon: 
Jeremiah 28:4 And I  will bring again to this place Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim  king of Judah, with all the captives of Judah, that went into  Babylon, saith the LORD: for I will break the yoke of the  king of Babylon.  
Jeremiah 28:5 Then the prophet 
Jeremiah said unto the prophet  Hananiah in the presence of the priests, and in the presence  of all the people that stood in the house of the LORD,  
Jeremiah 28:6 Even the prophet 
Jeremiah said, Amen: the LORD  do so: the LORD perform thy words which thou hast  prophesied, to bring again the vessels of the LORD’S  house, and all that is carried away captive, from Babylon  into this place. 
Jeremiah 28:7 Nevertheless hear thou now this  word that I speak in thine ears, and in the ears of all the  people; 
Jeremiah 28:8 The prophets that have been before me and  before thee of old prophesied both against many countries,  and against great kingdoms, of war, and of evil, and of  pestilence. 
Jeremiah 28:9 The prophet which prophesieth of peace,  when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then  shall the prophet be known, that the LORD hath truly sent  him.  
Jeremiah 28:10 Then Hananiah the prophet took the yoke from  off the prophet 
Jeremiah’s neck, and brake it. 
Jeremiah 28:11 And  Hananiah spake in the presence of all the people, saying,  Thus saith the LORD; Even so will I break the yoke of  Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon from the neck of all  nations within the space of two full years. And the prophet  Jeremiah went his way.   
Jeremiah 28:12 Then the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah  the prophet, after that Hananiah the prophet had broken  the yoke from off the neck of the prophet 
Jeremiah, saying,  
Jeremiah 28:13 Go and tell Hananiah, saying, Thus saith the  LORD; Thou hast broken the yokes of wood; but thou shalt  make for them yokes of iron. 
Jeremiah 28:14 For thus saith the  LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; I have put a yoke of iron  upon the neck of all these nations, that they may serve  Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon; and they shall serve him:  and I have given him the beasts of the field also.  
Jeremiah 28:15 Then said the prophet 
Jeremiah unto Hananiah  the prophet, Hear now, Hananiah; The LORD hath not sent  thee; but thou makest this people to trust in a lie. 
Jeremiah 28:16  Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will cast thee  from off the face of the earth: this year thou shalt die,  because thou hast taught rebellion against the LORD.  
Jeremiah 28:17 So Hananiah the prophet died the same year in the  seventh month.  
Jeremiah 29:1 Now these are the words of the letter that  
Jeremiah the prophet sent from Jerusalem unto the residue  of the elders which were carried away captives, and to the  priests, and to the prophets, and to all the people whom  Nebuchadnezzar had carried away captive from Jerusalem  to Babylon; 
Jeremiah 29:2 (After that Jeconiah the king, and the  queen, and the eunuchs, the princes of Judah and Jerusalem,  and the carpenters, and the smiths, were departed from  Jerusalem;) 
Jeremiah 29:3 By the hand of Elasah the son of  Shaphan, and Gemariah the son of Hilkiah, (whom  Zedekiah king of Judah sent unto Babylon to  Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon) saying, 
Jeremiah 29:4 Thus  saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, unto all that are  carried away captives, whom I have caused to be carried  away from Jerusalem unto Babylon; 
Jeremiah 29:5 Build ye  houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the  fruit of them; 
Jeremiah 29:6 Take ye wives, and beget sons and  daughters; and take wives for your sons, and give your  daughters to husbands, that they may bear sons and  daughters; that ye may be increased there, and not  diminished. 
Jeremiah 29:7 And seek the peace of the city whither I  have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto  the LORD for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace.  
Jeremiah 29:8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of  Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in  the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your  dreams which ye cause to be dreamed. 
Jeremiah 29:9 For they  prophesy falsely unto you in my name: I have not sent them,  saith the LORD.  
Jeremiah 29:10 For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years  be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform  my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this  place. 
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward  you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to  give you an expected end. 
Jeremiah 29:12 Then shall ye call upon  me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken  unto you. 
Jeremiah 29:13 And ye shall seek me, and find me,  when ye shall search for me with all your heart. 
Jeremiah 29:14  And I will be found of you, saith the LORD: and I will turn  away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the  nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you,  saith the LORD; and I will bring you again into the place  whence I caused you to be carried away captive.
Jeremiah 29:15 Because ye have said, The LORD hath raised us  up prophets in Babylon; 
Jeremiah 29:16 Know that thus saith the  LORD of the king that sitteth upon the throne of David, and  of all the people that dwelleth in this city, and of your  brethren that are not gone forth with you into captivity;  
Jeremiah 29:17 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will send  upon them the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, and  will make them like vile figs, that cannot be eaten, they are  so evil. 
Jeremiah 29:18 And I will persecute them with the sword,  with the famine, and with the pestilence, and will deliver  them to be removed to all the kingdoms of the earth, to be a  curse, and an astonishment, and an hissing, and a reproach,  among all the nations whither I have driven them: 
Jeremiah 29:19  Because they have not hearkened to my words, saith the  LORD, which I sent unto them by my servants the prophets,  rising up early and sending them; but ye would not hear,  saith the LORD.  
Jeremiah 29:20 Hear ye therefore the word of the LORD, all ye  of the captivity, whom I have sent from Jerusalem to  Babylon: 
Jeremiah 29:21 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of  Israel, of Ahab the son of Kolaiah, and of Zedekiah the son  of Maaseiah, which prophesy a lie unto you in my name;  Behold, I will deliver them into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar  king of Babylon; and he shall slay them before your eyes;  
Jeremiah 29:22 And of them shall be taken up a curse by all the  captivity of Judah which are in Babylon, saying, The  LORD make thee like Zedekiah and like Ahab, whom the  king of Babylon roasted in the fire; 
Jeremiah 29:23 Because they  have committed villany in Israel, and have committed  adultery with their neighbours’ wives, and have spoken  lying words in my name, which I have not commanded  them; even I know, and am a witness, saith the LORD.  
Jeremiah 29:24 Thus shalt thou also speak to Shemaiah the  Nehelamite, saying, 
Jeremiah 29:25 Thus speaketh the LORD of  hosts, the God of Israel, saying, Because thou hast sent  letters in thy name unto all the people that are at  Jerusalem, and to Zephaniah the son of Maaseiah the priest,  and to all the priests, saying, 
Jeremiah 29:26 The LORD hath made  thee priest in the stead of Jehoiada the priest, that ye should  be officers in the house of the LORD, for every man that  is mad, and maketh himself a prophet, that thou shouldest  put him in prison, and in the stocks. 
Jeremiah 29:27 Now therefore  why hast thou not reproved 
Jeremiah of Anathoth, which  maketh himself a prophet to you? 
Jeremiah 29:28 For therefore he  sent unto us in Babylon, saying, This captivity is long:  build ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and  eat the fruit of them. 
Jeremiah 29:29 And Zephaniah the priest read  this letter in the ears of 
Jeremiah the prophet.  
Jeremiah 29:30 Then came the word of the LORD unto 
Jeremiah,  saying, 
Jeremiah 29:31 Send to all them of the captivity, saying,  Thus saith the LORD concerning Shemaiah the Nehelamite;  Because that Shemaiah hath prophesied unto you, and I sent  him not, and he caused you to trust in a lie: 
Jeremiah 29:32  Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will punish  Shemaiah the Nehelamite, and his seed: he shall not have a  man to dwell among this people; neither shall he behold the  good that I will do for my people, saith the LORD; because  he hath taught rebellion against the LORD.  
Jeremiah 30:1 The word that came to 
Jeremiah from the LORD,  saying, 
Jeremiah 30:2 Thus speaketh the LORD God of Israel,  saying, Write thee all the words that I have spoken unto thee  in a book. 
Jeremiah 30:3 For, lo, the days come, saith the LORD,  that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and  Judah, saith the LORD: and I will cause them to return to  the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.  
Jeremiah 30:4 And these are the words that the LORD spake  concerning Israel and concerning Judah. 
Jeremiah 30:5 For thus  saith the LORD; We have heard a voice of trembling, of  fear, and not of peace. 
Jeremiah 30:6 Ask ye now, and see whether  a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man  with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all  faces are turned into paleness? 
Jeremiah 30:7 Alas! for that day is  great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s  trouble; but he shall be saved out of it. 
Jeremiah 30:8 For it shall  come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I  will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy  bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him:  
Jeremiah 30:9 But they shall serve the LORD their God, and David  their king, whom I will raise up unto them.  
Jeremiah 30:10 Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob,  saith the LORD; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will  save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their  captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be  quiet, and none shall make him afraid. 
Jeremiah 30:11 For I am  with thee, saith the LORD, to save thee: though I make a  full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will  I not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in  measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.  
Jeremiah 30:12 For thus saith the LORD, Thy bruise is incurable,  and thy wound is grievous. 
Jeremiah 30:13 There is none to  plead thy cause, that thou mayest be bound up: thou hast no  healing medicines. 
Jeremiah 30:14 All thy lovers have forgotten  thee; they seek thee not; for I have wounded thee with the  wound of an enemy, with the chastisement of a cruel one,  for the multitude of thine iniquity; because thy sins were  increased. 
Jeremiah 30:15 Why criest thou for thine affliction? thy  sorrow is incurable for the multitude of thine iniquity:  because thy sins were increased, I have done these things  unto thee. 
Jeremiah 30:16 Therefore all they that devour thee shall  be devoured; and all thine adversaries, every one of them,  shall go into captivity; and they that spoil thee shall be a  spoil, and all that prey upon thee will I give for a prey.  
Jeremiah 30:17 For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal  thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called  thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man  seeketh after.  
Jeremiah 30:18 Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will bring again  the captivity of Jacob’s tents, and have mercy on his  dwellingplaces; and the city shall be builded upon her own  heap, and the palace shall remain after the manner thereof.  
Jeremiah 30:19 And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the  voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them,  and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they  shall not be small. 
Jeremiah 30:20 Their children also shall be as  aforetime, and their congregation shall be established before  me, and I will punish all that oppress them. 
Jeremiah 30:21 And  their nobles shall be of themselves, and their governor shall  proceed from the midst of them; and I will cause him to  draw near, and he shall approach unto me: for who is this  that engaged his heart to approach unto me? saith the  LORD. 
Jeremiah 30:22 And ye shall be my people, and I will be  your God. 
Jeremiah 30:23 Behold, the whirlwind of the LORD  goeth forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall  with pain upon the head of the wicked. 
Jeremiah 30:24 The fierce  anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have done it,  and until he have performed the intents of his heart: in the  latter days ye shall consider it.  
Jeremiah 31:1 At the same time, saith the LORD, will I be the  God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my  people. 
Jeremiah 31:2 Thus saith the LORD, The people which  were left of the sword found grace in the wilderness; even    
Jeremiah Page 464   Israel, when I went to cause him to rest. 
Jeremiah 31:3 The LORD  hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved  thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness  have I drawn thee. 
Jeremiah 31:4 Again I will build thee, and thou  shalt be built, O virgin of Israel: thou shalt again be adorned  with thy tabrets, and shalt go forth in the dances of them  that make merry. 
Jeremiah 31:5 Thou shalt yet plant vines upon the  mountains of Samaria: the planters shall plant, and shall eat  them as common things. 
Jeremiah 31:6 For there shall be a day,  that the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall cry,  Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the LORD our God.

Jeremiah 31:9 They shall come with weeping, and  with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to  walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they  shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim  is my firstborn.  
Jeremiah 31:10 Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and  declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered  Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth  his flock. 
Jeremiah 31:11 For the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and  ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than  he. 
Jeremiah 31:12 Therefore they shall come and sing in the  height of Zion, and shall flow together to the goodness of  the LORD, for wheat, and for wine, and for oil, and for the  young of the flock and of the herd: and their soul shall be as  a watered garden; and they shall not sorrow any more at all.  
Jeremiah 31:13 Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, both  young men and old together: for I will turn their mourning  into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice  from their sorrow. 
Jeremiah 31:14 And I will satiate the soul of the  priests with fatness, and my people shall be satisfied with  my goodness, saith the LORD.  
Jeremiah 31:15 Thus saith the LORD; A voice was heard in  Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rahel weeping  for her children refused to be comforted for her children,  because they were not. 
Jeremiah 31:16 Thus saith the LORD;  Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears:  for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the LORD; and they  shall come again from the land of the enemy. 
Jeremiah 31:17 And  there is hope in thine end, saith the LORD, that thy children  shall come again to their own border.  
Jeremiah 31:18 I have surely heard Ephraim bemoaning himself  thus; Thou hast chastised me, and I was chastised, as a  bullock unaccustomed to the yoke: turn thou me, and I  shall be turned; for thou art the LORD my God. 
Jeremiah 31:19  Surely after that I was turned, I repented; and after that I  was instructed, I smote upon my thigh: I was ashamed,  yea, even confounded, because I did bear the reproach of  my youth. 
Jeremiah 31:20 Is Ephraim my dear son? is he a  pleasant child? for since I spake against him, I do earnestly  remember him still: therefore my bowels are troubled for  him; I will surely have mercy upon him, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I  will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with  the house of Judah: 
Jeremiah 31:32 Not according to the covenant  that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them  by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which  my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto  them, saith the LORD: 
Jeremiah 31:33 But this shall be the  covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After  those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their  inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their  God, and they shall be my people.

Jeremiah 32:1 The word that came to 
Jeremiah from the LORD  in the tenth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, which was the  eighteenth year of Nebuchadrezzar. 
Jeremiah 32:2 For then the  king of Babylon’s army besieged Jerusalem: and 
Jeremiah  the prophet was shut up in the court of the prison, which  was in the king of Judah’s house. 
Jeremiah 32:3 For Zedekiah  king of Judah had shut him up, saying, Wherefore dost thou  prophesy, and say, Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will    Page 465 
Jeremiah   give this city into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he  shall take it; 
Jeremiah 32:4 And Zedekiah king of Judah shall not  escape out of the hand of the Chaldeans, but shall surely be  delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon, and shall  speak with him mouth to mouth, and his eyes shall behold  his eyes; 
Jeremiah 32:5 And he shall lead Zedekiah to Babylon,  and there shall he be until I visit him, saith the LORD:  though ye fight with the Chaldeans, ye shall not prosper?   
Jeremiah 32:6 And Jeremiah said, The word of the LORD came  unto me, saying, 
Jeremiah 32:7 Behold, Hanameel the son of  Shallum thine uncle shall come unto thee, saying, Buy thee  my field that is in Anathoth: for the right of redemption  is thine to buy it. 
Jeremiah 32:8 So Hanameel mine uncle’s son  came to me in the court of the prison according to the word  of the LORD, and said unto me, Buy my field, I pray thee,  that is in Anathoth, which is in the country of Benjamin:  for the right of inheritance is thine, and the redemption is  thine; buy it for thyself. Then I knew that this was the  word of the LORD. 
Jeremiah 32:9 And I bought the field of  Hanameel my uncle’s son, that was in Anathoth, and  weighed him the money, even seventeen shekels of silver.  
Jeremiah 32:10 And I subscribed the evidence, and sealed it, and  took witnesses, and weighed him the money in the  balances. 
Jeremiah 32:11 So I took the evidence of the purchase,  both that which was sealed according to the law and  custom, and that which was open: 
Jeremiah 32:12 And I gave the  evidence of the purchase unto Baruch the son of Neriah, the  son of Maaseiah, in the sight of Hanameel mine uncle’s  son, and in the presence of the witnesses that subscribed  the book of the purchase, before all the Jews that sat in the  court of the prison.  
Jeremiah 32:13 And I charged Baruch before them, saying,  
Jeremiah 32:14 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel;  Take these evidences, this evidence of the purchase, both  which is sealed, and this evidence which is open; and put  them in an earthen vessel, that they may continue many  days. 
Jeremiah 32:15 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of  Israel; Houses and fields and vineyards shall be possessed  again in this land.  
Jeremiah 32:16 Now when I had delivered the evidence of the  purchase unto Baruch the son of Neriah, I prayed unto the  LORD, saying, 
Jeremiah 32:17 Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast  made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and  stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:  
Jeremiah 32:18 Thou shewest lovingkindness unto thousands, and  recompensest the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of  their children after them: the Great, the Mighty God, the  LORD of hosts, is his name, 
Jeremiah 32:19 Great in counsel,  and mighty in work: for thine eyes are open upon all the  ways of the sons of men: to give every one according to his  ways, and according to the fruit of his doings: 
Jeremiah 32:20  Which hast set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt,  even unto this day, and in Israel, and among other men;  and hast made thee a name, as at this day; 
Jeremiah 32:21 And hast  brought forth thy people Israel out of the land of Egypt with  signs, and with wonders, and with a strong hand, and with a  stretched out arm, and with great terror; 
Jeremiah 32:22 And hast  given them this land, which thou didst swear to their fathers  to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey; 
Jeremiah 32:23  And they came in, and possessed it; but they obeyed not thy  voice, neither walked in thy law; they have done nothing of  all that thou commandedst them to do: therefore thou hast  caused all this evil to come upon them: 
Jeremiah 32:24 Behold the  mounts, they are come unto the city to take it; and the city is  given into the hand of the Chaldeans, that fight against it,  because of the sword, and of the famine, and of the  pestilence: and what thou hast spoken is come to pass; and,  behold, thou seest it. 
Jeremiah 32:25 And thou hast said unto me,  O Lord GOD, Buy thee the field for money, and take  witnesses; for the city is given into the hand of the  Chaldeans.   
Jeremiah 32:26 Then came the word of the LORD unto 
Jeremiah,  saying, 
Jeremiah 32:27 Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all  flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? 
Jeremiah 32:28 Therefore  thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will give this city into the  hand of the Chaldeans, and into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar  king of Babylon, and he shall take it: 
Jeremiah 32:29 And the  Chaldeans, that fight against this city, shall come and set  fire on this city, and burn it with the houses, upon whose  roofs they have offered incense unto Baal, and poured out  drink offerings unto other gods, to provoke me to anger.  
Jeremiah 32:30 For the children of Israel and the children of Judah  have only done evil before me from their youth: for the  children of Israel have only provoked me to anger with the  work of their hands, saith the LORD. 
Jeremiah 32:31 For this city  hath been to me as a provocation of mine anger and of my  fury from the day that they built it even unto this day; that I  should remove it from before my face, 
Jeremiah 32:32 Because of  all the evil of the children of Israel and of the children of  Judah, which they have done to provoke me to anger, they,  their kings, their princes, their priests, and their prophets,  and the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.  
Jeremiah 32:33 And they have turned unto me the back, and not the  face: though I taught them, rising up early and teaching  them, yet they have not hearkened to receive instruction.  
Jeremiah 32:34 But they set their abominations in the house, which  is called by my name, to defile it. 
Jeremiah 32:35 And they built  the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son  of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass  through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them  not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this  abomination, to cause Judah to sin.  
Jeremiah 32:36 And now therefore thus saith the LORD, the God  of Israel, concerning this city, whereof ye say, It shall be  delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon by the sword,  and by the famine, and by the pestilence; 
Jeremiah 32:37 Behold, I  will gather them out of all countries, whither I have driven  them in mine anger, and in my fury, and in great wrath; and  I will bring them again unto this place, and I will cause  them to dwell safely: 
Jeremiah 32:38 And they shall be my people,  and I will be their God: 
Jeremiah 32:39 And I will give them one  heart, and one way, that they may fear me for ever, for the  good of them, and of their children after them: 
Jeremiah 32:40 And  I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will  not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my  fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me.  
Jeremiah 32:41 Yea, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and  I will plant them in this land assuredly with my whole heart  and with my whole soul. 
Jeremiah 32:42 For thus saith the LORD;  Like as I have brought all this great evil upon this people, so  will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised  them. 
Jeremiah 32:43 And fields shall be bought in this land,  whereof ye say, It is desolate without man or beast; it is  given into the hand of the Chaldeans. 
Jeremiah 32:44 Men shall  buy fields for money, and subscribe evidences, and seal  them, and take witnesses in the land of Benjamin, and in  the places about Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah, and in  the cities of the mountains, and in the cities of the valley,  and in the cities of the south: for I will cause their captivity  to return, saith the LORD.  
Jeremiah 33:1 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto  Jeremiah the second time, while he was yet shut up in thecourt of the prison, saying, 
Jeremiah 33:2 Thus saith the LORD the  maker thereof, the LORD that formed it, to establish it; the  LORD is his name; 
Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will  answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which  thou knowest not. 
Jeremiah 33:4 For thus saith the LORD, the God  of Israel, concerning the houses of this city, and concerning  the houses of the kings of Judah, which are thrown down by  the mounts, and by the sword; 
Jeremiah 33:5 They come to fight  with the Chaldeans, but it is fill them with the dead bodies  of men, whom I have slain in mine anger and in my fury,  and for all whose wickedness I have hid my face from this  city. 
Jeremiah 33:6 Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I  will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of  peace and truth. 
Jeremiah 33:7 And I will cause the captivity of  Judah and the captivity of Israel to return, and will build  them, as at the first. 
Jeremiah 33:8 And I will cleanse them from all  their iniquity, whereby they have sinned against me; and I  will pardon all their iniquities, whereby they have sinned,  and whereby they have transgressed against me.   
Jeremiah 33:9 And it shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and  an honour before all the nations of the earth, which shall  hear all the good that I do unto them: and they shall fear and  tremble for all the goodness and for all the prosperity that I  procure unto it. 
Jeremiah 33:10 Thus saith the LORD; Again there  shall be heard in this place, which ye say shall be desolate  without man and without beast, even in the cities of Judah,  and in the streets of Jerusalem, that are desolate, without  man, and without inhabitant, and without beast, 
Jeremiah 33:11  The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the  bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them  that shall say, Praise the LORD of hosts: for the LORD is  good; for his mercy endureth for ever: and of them that  shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the  LORD. For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as  at the first, saith the LORD. 
Jeremiah 33:12 Thus saith the LORD  of hosts; Again in this place, which is desolate without man  and without beast, and in all the cities thereof, shall be an  habitation of shepherds causing their flocks to lie down.  
Jeremiah 33:13 In the cities of the mountains, in the cities of the  vale, and in the cities of the south, and in the land of  Benjamin, and in the places about Jerusalem, and in the  cities of Judah, shall the flocks pass again under the hands  of him that telleth them, saith the LORD. 
Jeremiah 33:14 Behold,  the days come, saith the LORD, that I will perform that  good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel  and to the house of Judah.  
Jeremiah 33:15 In those days, and at that time, will I cause the  Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he  shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land.  
Jeremiah 33:16 In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem  shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she  shall be called, The LORD our righteousness.  
Jeremiah 33:17 For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want  a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel; 
Jeremiah 33:18  Neither shall the priests the Levites want a man before me  to offer burnt offerings, and to kindle meat offerings, and to  do sacrifice continually.  
Jeremiah 33:19 And the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah,  saying, 
Jeremiah 33:20 Thus saith the LORD; If ye can break my  covenant of the day, and my covenant of the night, and that  there should not be day and night in their season; 
Jeremiah 33:21  Then may also my covenant be broken with David my  servant, that he should not have a son to reign upon his  throne; and with the Levites the priests, my ministers.  
Jeremiah 33:22 As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither  the sand of the sea measured: so will I multiply the seed of  David my servant, and the Levites that minister unto me.   
Jeremiah 33:23 Moreover the word of the LORD came to 
Jeremiah, saying, 
Jeremiah 33:24 Considerest thou not what this  people have spoken, saying, The two families which the  LORD hath chosen, he hath even cast them off? thus they  have despised my people, that they should be no more a  nation before them. 
Jeremiah 33:25 Thus saith the LORD; If my  covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not  appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth; 
Jeremiah 33:26 Then  will I cast away the seed of Jacob, and David my servant, so  that I will not take any of his seed to be rulers over the  seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: for I will cause their  captivity to return, and have mercy on them.  
Jeremiah 34:1 The word which came unto 
Jeremiah from the  LORD, when Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and all his  army, and all the kingdoms of the earth of his dominion,  and all the people, fought against Jerusalem, and against all  the cities thereof, saying, 
Jeremiah 34:2 Thus saith the LORD, the  God of Israel; Go and speak to Zedekiah king of Judah, and  tell him, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will give this city  into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall burn it  with fire: 
Jeremiah 34:3 And thou shalt not escape out of his hand,  but shalt surely be taken, and delivered into his hand; and  thine eyes shall behold the eyes of the king of Babylon, and  he shall speak with thee mouth to mouth, and thou shalt go  to Babylon. 
Jeremiah 34:4 Yet hear the word of the LORD, O  Zedekiah king of Judah; Thus saith the LORD of thee, Thou  shalt not die by the sword: 
Jeremiah 34:5 But thou shalt die in  peace: and with the burnings of thy fathers, the former kings  which were before thee, so shall they burn odours for thee;  and they will lament thee, saying, Ah lord! for I have  pronounced the word, saith the LORD. 
Jeremiah 34:6 Then  Jeremiah the prophet spake all these words unto Zedekiah  king of Judah in Jerusalem, 
Jeremiah 34:7 When the king of  Babylon’s army fought against Jerusalem, and against all  the cities of Judah that were left, against Lachish, and  against Azekah: for these defenced cities remained of the  cities of Judah.  
Jeremiah 34:8 This is the word that came unto 
Jeremiah from  the LORD, after that the king Zedekiah had made a  covenant with all the people which were at Jerusalem, to  proclaim liberty unto them; 
Jeremiah 34:9 That every man should  let his manservant, and every man his maidservant, being  an Hebrew or an Hebrewess, go free; that none should serve  himself of them, to wit, of a Jew his brother. 
Jeremiah 34:10 Now  when all the princes, and all the people, which had entered  into the covenant, heard that every one should let his  manservant, and every one his maidservant, go free, that  none should serve themselves of them any more, then they  obeyed, and let them go. 
Jeremiah 34:11 But afterward they  turned, and caused the servants and the handmaids, whom  they had let go free, to return, and brought them into  subjection for servants and for handmaids.  
Jeremiah 34:12 Therefore the word of the LORD came to  Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 
Jeremiah 34:13 Thus saith the  LORD, the God of Israel; I made a covenant with your  fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of  Egypt, out of the house of bondmen, saying, 
Jeremiah 34:14 At the  end of seven years let ye go every man his brother an  Hebrew, which hath been sold unto thee; and when he hath  served thee six years, thou shalt let him go free from thee:  but your fathers hearkened not unto me, neither inclined  their ear. 
Jeremiah 34:15 And ye were now turned, and had done  right in my sight, in proclaiming liberty every man to his  neighbour; and ye had made a covenant before me in the    house which is called by my name: 
Jeremiah 34:16 But ye turned  and polluted my name, and caused every man his servant,  and every man his handmaid, whom ye had set at liberty at  their pleasure, to return, and brought them into subjection,  to be unto you for servants and for handmaids. 
Jeremiah 34:17  Therefore thus saith the LORD; Ye have not hearkened unto  me, in proclaiming liberty, every one to his brother, and  every man to his neighbour: behold, I proclaim a liberty for  you, saith the LORD, to the sword, to the pestilence, and to  the famine; and I will make you to be removed into all the  kingdoms of the earth. 
Jeremiah 34:18 And I will give the men that  have transgressed my covenant, which have not performed  the words of the covenant which they had made before me,  when they cut the calf in twain, and passed between the  parts thereof, 
Jeremiah 34:19 The princes of Judah, and the princes  of Jerusalem, the eunuchs, and the priests, and all the people  of the land, which passed between the parts of the calf;   
Jeremiah 34:20 I will even give them into the hand of their  enemies, and into the hand of them that seek their life: and  their dead bodies shall be for meat unto the fowls of the  heaven, and to the beasts of the earth. 
Jeremiah 34:21 And  Zedekiah king of Judah and his princes will I give into the  hand of their enemies, and into the hand of them that seek  their life, and into the hand of the king of Babylon’s army,  which are gone up from you. 
Jeremiah 34:22 Behold, I will  command, saith the LORD, and cause them to return to this  city; and they shall fight against it, and take it, and burn it  with fire: and I will make the cities of Judah a desolation  without an inhabitant.  
Jeremiah 35:1 The word which came unto 
Jeremiah from the  LORD in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of  Judah, saying, 
Jeremiah 35:2 Go unto the house of the Rechabites,  and speak unto them, and bring them into the house of the  LORD, into one of the chambers, and give them wine to  drink. 
Jeremiah 35:3 Then I took Jaazaniah the son of Jeremiah, the  son of Habaziniah, and his brethren, and all his sons, and  the whole house of the Rechabites; 
Jeremiah 35:4 And I brought  them into the house of the LORD, into the chamber of the  sons of Hanan, the son of Igdaliah, a man of God, which  was by the chamber of the princes, which was above the  chamber of Maaseiah the son of Shallum, the keeper of the  door: 
Jeremiah 35:5 And I set before the sons of the house of the  Rechabites pots full of wine, and cups, and I said unto them,  Drink ye wine. 
Jeremiah 35:6 But they said, We will drink no  wine: for Jonadab the son of Rechab our father commanded  us, saying, Ye shall drink no wine, neither ye, nor your  sons for ever: 
Jeremiah 35:7 Neither shall ye build house, nor sow  seed, nor plant vineyard, nor have any: but all your days  ye shall dwell in tents; that ye may live many days in the  land where ye be strangers. 
Jeremiah 35:8 Thus have we obeyed  the voice of Jonadab the son of Rechab our father in all that  he hath charged us, to drink no wine all our days, we, our  wives, our sons, nor our daughters; 
Jeremiah 35:9 Nor to build  houses for us to dwell in: neither have we vineyard, nor  field, nor seed: 
Jeremiah 35:10 But we have dwelt in tents, and  have obeyed, and done according to all that Jonadab our  father commanded us. 
Jeremiah 35:11 But it came to pass, when  Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up into the land, that  we said, Come, and let us go to Jerusalem for fear of the  army of the Chaldeans, and for fear of the army of the  Syrians: so we dwell at Jerusalem.  
Jeremiah 35:12 Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah,  saying, 
Jeremiah 35:13 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of  Israel; Go and tell the men of Judah and the inhabitants of  Jerusalem, Will ye not receive instruction to hearken to my  words? saith the LORD. 
Jeremiah 35:14 The words of Jonadab the  son of Rechab, that he commanded his sons not to drink  wine, are performed; for unto this day they drink none, but  obey their father’s commandment: notwithstanding I have  spoken unto you, rising early and speaking; but ye  hearkened not unto me. 
Jeremiah 35:15 I have sent also unto you  all my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending  them, saying, Return ye now every man from his evil way,  and amend your doings, and go not after other gods to serve  them, and ye shall dwell in the land which I have given to  you and to your fathers: but ye have not inclined your ear,  nor hearkened unto me. 
Jeremiah 35:16 Because the sons of  Jonadab the son of Rechab have performed the  commandment of their father, which he commanded them;  but this people hath not hearkened unto me: 
Jeremiah 35:17  Therefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, the God of  Israel; Behold, I will bring upon Judah and upon all the  inhabitants of Jerusalem all the evil that I have pronounced  against them: because I have spoken unto them, but they  have not heard; and I have called unto them, but they have  not answered.   
Jeremiah 35:18 And Jeremiah said unto the house of the  Rechabites, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of  Israel; Because ye have obeyed the commandment of  Jonadab your father, and kept all his precepts, and done  according unto all that he hath commanded you: 
Jeremiah 35:19  Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel;  Jonadab the son of Rechab shall not want a man to stand  before me for ever.  
Jeremiah 36:1 And it came to pass in the fourth year of  Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, that this word  came unto 
Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 
Jeremiah 36:2 Take  thee a roll of a book, and write therein all the words that I  have spoken unto thee against Israel, and against Judah, and  against all the nations, from the day I spake unto thee, from  the days of Josiah, even into this day. 
Jeremiah 36:3 It may be that  the house of Judah will hear all the evil which I purpose to  do unto them; that they may return every man from his evil  way; that I may forgive their iniquity and their sin. 
Jeremiah 36:4  Then 
Jeremiah called Baruch the son of Neriah: and Baruch  wrote from the mouth of 
Jeremiah all the words of the  LORD, which he had spoken unto him, upon a roll of a  book. 
Jeremiah 36:5 And Jeremiah commanded Baruch, saying, I  am shut up; I cannot go into the house of the LORD:  
Jeremiah 36:6 Therefore go thou, and read in the roll, which thou  hast written from my mouth, the words of the LORD in the  ears of the people in the LORD’S house upon the fasting  day: and also thou shalt read them in the ears of all Judah  that come out of their cities. 
Jeremiah 36:7 It may be they will  present their supplication before the LORD, and will return  every one from his evil way: for great is the anger and the  fury that the LORD hath pronounced against this people.  
Jeremiah 36:8 And Baruch the son of Neriah did according to all  that 
Jeremiah the prophet commanded him, reading in the  book the words of the LORD in the LORD’S house. 
Jeremiah 36:9  And it came to pass in the fifth year of Jehoiakim the son of  Josiah king of Judah, in the ninth month, that they  proclaimed a fast before the LORD to all the people in  Jerusalem, and to all the people that came from the cities of  Judah unto Jerusalem. 
Jeremiah 36:10 Then read Baruch in the  book the words of Jeremiah in the house of the LORD, in  the chamber of Gemariah the son of Shaphan the scribe, in  the higher court, at the entry of the new gate of the LORD’S  house, in the ears of all the people.  
Jeremiah 36:11 When Michaiah the son of Gemariah, the son of  Shaphan, had heard out of the book all the words of the  LORD, 
Jeremiah 36:12 Then he went down into the king’s house,  into the scribe’s chamber: and, lo, all the princes sat there,   even Elishama the scribe, and Delaiah the son of  Shemaiah, and Elnathan the son of Achbor, and Gemariah  the son of Shaphan, and Zedekiah the son of Hananiah, and  all the princes. 
Jeremiah 36:13 Then Michaiah declared unto them  all the words that he had heard, when Baruch read the book  in the ears of the people. 
Jeremiah 36:14 Therefore all the princes  sent Jehudi the son of Nethaniah, the son of Shelemiah, the  son of Cushi, unto Baruch, saying, Take in thine hand the  roll wherein thou hast read in the ears of the people, and  come. So Baruch the son of Neriah took the roll in his hand,  and came unto them. 
Jeremiah 36:15 And they said unto him, Sit  down now, and read it in our ears. So Baruch read it in  their ears. 
Jeremiah 36:16 Now it came to pass, when they had  heard all the words, they were afraid both one and other,  and said unto Baruch, We will surely tell the king of all  these words. 
Jeremiah 36:17 And they asked Baruch, saying, Tell  us now, How didst thou write all these words at his mouth?   
Jeremiah 36:18 Then Baruch answered them, He pronounced all  these words unto me with his mouth, and I wrote them  with ink in the book. 
Jeremiah 36:19 Then said the princes unto  Baruch, Go, hide thee, thou and 
Jeremiah; and let no man  know where ye be.  
Jeremiah 36:20 And they went in to the king into the court, but  they laid up the roll in the chamber of Elishama the scribe,  and told all the words in the ears of the king. 
Jeremiah 36:21 So the  king sent Jehudi to fetch the roll: and he took it out of  Elishama the scribe’s chamber. And Jehudi read it in the  ears of the king, and in the ears of all the princes which  stood beside the king. 
Jeremiah 36:22 Now the king sat in the  winterhouse in the ninth month: and there was a fire on  the hearth burning before him. 
Jeremiah 36:23 And it came to pass,  that when Jehudi had read three or four leaves, he cut it  with the penknife, and cast it into the fire that was on the  hearth, until all the roll was consumed in the fire that was  on the hearth. 
Jeremiah 36:24 Yet they were not afraid, nor rent  their garments, neither the king, nor any of his servants  that heard all these words. 
Jeremiah 36:25 Nevertheless Elnathan  and Delaiah and Gemariah had made intercession to the  king that he would not burn the roll: but he would not hear  them. 
Jeremiah 36:26 But the king commanded Jerahmeel the son  of Hammelech, and Seraiah the son of Azriel, and  Shelemiah the son of Abdeel, to take Baruch the scribe and  Jeremiah the prophet: but the LORD hid them.  
Jeremiah 36:27 Then the word of the LORD came to 
Jeremiah,  after that the king had burned the roll, and the words which  Baruch wrote at the mouth of Jeremiah, saying, 
Jeremiah 36:28  Take thee again another roll, and write in it all the former  words that were in the first roll, which Jehoiakim the king  of Judah hath burned. 
Jeremiah 36:29 And thou shalt say to  Jehoiakim the king of Judah, Thus saith the LORD; Thou  hast burned this roll, saying, Why hast thou written therein,  saying, The king of Babylon shall certainly come and  destroy this land, and shall cause to cease from thence man  and beast? 
Jeremiah 36:30 Therefore thus saith the LORD of  Jehoiakim king of Judah; He shall have none to sit upon the  throne of David: and his dead body shall be cast out in the  day to the heat, and in the night to the frost. 
Jeremiah 36:31 And I  will punish him and his seed and his servants for their  iniquity; and I will bring upon them, and upon the  inhabitants of Jerusalem, and upon the men of Judah, all the  evil that I have pronounced against them; but they  hearkened not.  
Jeremiah 36:32 Then took 
Jeremiah another roll, and gave it to  Baruch the scribe, the son of Neriah; who wrote therein  from the mouth of 
Jeremiah all the words of the book which  Jehoiakim king of Judah had burned in the fire: and there  were added besides unto them many like words.   
Jeremiah 37:1 And king Zedekiah the son of Josiah reigned  instead of Coniah the son of Jehoiakim, whom  Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon made king in the land of  Judah. 
Jeremiah 37:2 But neither he, nor his servants, nor the  people of the land, did hearken unto the words of the  LORD, which he spake by the prophet 
Jeremiah 37:3  And Zedekiah the king sent Jehucal the son of Shelemiah  and Zephaniah the son of Maaseiah the priest to the prophet  Jeremiah, saying, Pray now unto the LORD our God for us.  
Jeremiah 37:4 Now Jeremiah came in and went out among the  people: for they had not put him into prison. 
Jeremiah 37:5 Then  Pharaoh’s army was come forth out of Egypt: and when the  Chaldeans that besieged Jerusalem heard tidings of them,  they departed from Jerusalem.  
Jeremiah 37:6 Then came the word of the LORD unto the  prophet Jeremiah, saying, 
Jeremiah 37:7 Thus saith the LORD, the  God of Israel; Thus shall ye say to the king of Judah, that  sent you unto me to enquire of me; Behold, Pharaoh’s army,  which is come forth to help you, shall return to Egypt into  their own land. 
Jeremiah 37:8 And the Chaldeans shall come again,  and fight against this city, and take it, and burn it with fire.  
Jeremiah 37:9 Thus saith the LORD; Deceive not yourselves,  saying, The Chaldeans shall surely depart from us: for they  shall not depart. 
Jeremiah 37:10 For though ye had smitten the  whole army of the Chaldeans that fight against you, and  there remained but wounded men among them, yet  should they rise up every man in his tent, and burn this city  with fire.  
Jeremiah 37:11 And it came to pass, that when the army of the  Chaldeans was broken up from Jerusalem for fear of  Pharaoh’s army, 
Jeremiah 37:12 Then 
Jeremiah went forth out of  Jerusalem to go into the land of Benjamin, to separate  himself thence in the midst of the people. 
Jeremiah 37:13 And  when he was in the gate of Benjamin, a captain of the ward  was there, whose name was Irijah, the son of Shelemiah,  the son of Hananiah; and he took Jeremiah the prophet,  saying, Thou fallest away to the Chaldeans. 
Jeremiah 37:14 Then  said Jeremiah, It is false; I fall not away to the Chaldeans.  But he hearkened not to him: so Irijah took 
Jeremiah, and  brought him to the princes. 
Jeremiah 37:15 Wherefore the princes  were wroth with Jeremiah, and smote him, and put him in  prison in the house of Jonathan the scribe: for they had  made that the prison.  
Jeremiah 37:16 When Jeremiah was entered into the dungeon,  and into the cabins, and Jeremiah had remained there many  days; 
Jeremiah 37:17 Then Zedekiah the king sent, and took him  out: and the king asked him secretly in his house, and said,  Is there any word from the LORD? And Jeremiah said,  There is: for, said he, thou shalt be delivered into the hand  of the king of Babylon. 
Jeremiah 37:18 Moreover Jeremiah said  unto king Zedekiah, What have I offended against thee, or  against thy servants, or against this people, that ye have put  me in prison? 
Jeremiah 37:19 Where are now your prophets  which prophesied unto you, saying, The king of Babylon  shall not come against you, nor against this land? 
Jeremiah 37:20  Therefore hear now, I pray thee, O my lord the king: let my  supplication, I pray thee, be accepted before thee; that thou  cause me not to return to the house of Jonathan the scribe,  lest I die there. 
Jeremiah 37:21 Then Zedekiah the king  commanded that they should commit 
Jeremiah into the  court of the prison, and that they should give him daily a  piece of bread out of the bakers street, until all the bread in  the city were spent. Thus 
Jeremiah remained in the court of  the prison. 
Jeremiah 38:1 Then Shephatiah the son of Mattan, and Gedaliah  the son of Pashur, and Jucal the son of Shelemiah, and  Pashur the son of Malchiah, heard the words that 
Jeremiah  had spoken unto all the people, saying, 
Jeremiah 38:2 Thus saith  the LORD, He that remaineth in this city shall die by the  sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence: but he that  goeth forth to the Chaldeans shall live; for he shall have his  life for a prey, and shall live. 
Jeremiah 38:3 Thus saith the LORD,  This city shall surely be given into the hand of the king of  Babylon’s army, which shall take it. 
Jeremiah 38:4 Therefore the  princes said unto the king, We beseech thee, let this man be  put to death: for thus he weakeneth the hands of the men of  war that remain in this city, and the hands of all the people,  in speaking such words unto them: for this man seeketh not  the welfare of this people, but the hurt. 
Jeremiah 38:5 Then  Zedekiah the king said, Behold, he is in your hand: for the  king is not he that can do any thing against you. 
Jeremiah 38:6  Then took they Jeremiah, and cast him into the dungeon of  Malchiah the son of Hammelech, that was in the court of  the prison: and they let down Jeremiah with cords. And in  the dungeon there was no water, but mire: so 
Jeremiah  sunk in the mire.  
Jeremiah 38:7 Now when Ebed-melech the Ethiopian, one of the  eunuchs which was in the king’s house, heard that they had  put Jeremiah in the dungeon; the king then sitting in the  gate of Benjamin; 
Jeremiah 38:8 Ebed-melech went forth out of the  king’s house, and spake to the king, saying, 
Jeremiah 38:9 My lord  the king, these men have done evil in all that they have done  to 
Jeremiah the prophet, whom they have cast into the  dungeon; and he is like to die for hunger in the place where  he is: for there is no more bread in the city. 
Jeremiah 38:10 Then  the king commanded Ebed-melech the Ethiopian, saying,  Take from hence thirty men with thee, and take up Jeremiah  the prophet out of the dungeon, before he die. 
Jeremiah 38:11 So  Ebed- melech took the men with him, and went into the  house of the king under the treasury, and took thence old  cast clouts and old rotten rags, and let them down by cords  into the dungeon to Jeremiah. 
Jeremiah 38:12 And Ebed-melech  the Ethiopian said unto Jeremiah, Put now these old cast  clouts and rotten rags under thine armholes under the cords.  And 
Jeremiah did so. 
Jeremiah 38:13 So they drew up Jeremiah  with cords, and took him up out of the dungeon: and  Jeremiah remained in the court of the prison.  
Jeremiah 38:14 Then Zedekiah the king sent, and took Jeremiah  the prophet unto him into the third entry that is in the  house of the LORD: and the king said unto Jeremiah, I will  ask thee a thing; hide nothing from me. 
Jeremiah 38:15 Then  Jeremiah said unto Zedekiah, If I declare it unto thee, wilt  thou not surely put me to death? and if I give thee counsel,  wilt thou not hearken unto me? 
Jeremiah 38:16 So Zedekiah the  king sware secretly unto Jeremiah, saying, As the LORD  liveth, that made us this soul, I will not put thee to death,  neither will I give thee into the hand of these men that seek  thy life. 
Jeremiah 38:17 Then said Jeremiah unto Zedekiah, Thus  saith the LORD, the God of hosts, the God of Israel; If thou  wilt assuredly go forth unto the king of Babylon’s princes,  then thy soul shall live, and this city shall not be burned  with fire; and thou shalt live, and thine house: 
Jeremiah 38:18 But  if thou wilt not go forth to the king of Babylon’s princes,  then shall this city be given into the hand of the Chaldeans,  and they shall burn it with fire, and thou shalt not escape out  of their hand. 
Jeremiah 38:19 And Zedekiah the king said unto Jeremiah, I am afraid of the Jews that are fallen to the  Chaldeans, lest they deliver me into their hand, and they  mock me. 
Jeremiah 38:20 But Jeremiah said, They shall not deliver  thee. Obey, I beseech thee, the voice of the LORD, which  I speak unto thee: so it shall be well unto thee, and thy soul  shall live. 
Jeremiah 38:21 But if thou refuse to go forth, this is the  word that the LORD hath shewed me: 
Jeremiah 38:22 And, behold,  all the women that are left in the king of Judah’s house  shall be brought forth to the king of Babylon’s princes,  and those women shall say, Thy friends have set thee on,  and have prevailed against thee: thy feet are sunk in the  mire, and they are turned away back. 
Jeremiah 38:23 So they  shall bring out all thy wives and thy children to the  Chaldeans: and thou shalt not escape out of their hand, but  shalt be taken by the hand of the king of Babylon: and thou  shalt cause this city to be burned with fire.   
Jeremiah 38:24 Then said Zedekiah unto Jeremiah, Let no man  know of these words, and thou shalt not die. 
Jeremiah 38:25 But if  the princes hear that I have talked with thee, and they come  unto thee, and say unto thee, Declare unto us now what thou  hast said unto the king, hide it not from us, and we will not  put thee to death; also what the king said unto thee: 
Jeremiah 38:26  Then thou shalt say unto them, I presented my supplication  before the king, that he would not cause me to return to  Jonathan’s house, to die there. 
Jeremiah 38:27 Then came all the  princes unto Jeremiah, and asked him: and he told them  according to all these words that the king had commanded.  So they left off speaking with him; for the matter was not  perceived. 
Jeremiah 38:28 So Jeremiah abode in the court of the  prison until the day that Jerusalem was taken: and he was  there when Jerusalem was taken.  
Jeremiah 39:1 In the ninth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the  tenth month, came Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and all  his army against Jerusalem, and they besieged it. 
Jeremiah 39:2  And in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month,  the ninth day of the month, the city was broken up. 
Jeremiah 39:3  And all the princes of the king of Babylon came in, and sat  in the middle gate, even Nergal-sharezer, Samgar-nebo,  Sarsechim, Rab- saris, Nergal-sharezer, Rabmag, with all  the residue of the princes of the king of Babylon.  
Jeremiah 39:4 And it came to pass, that when Zedekiah the king  of Judah saw them, and all the men of war, then they fled,  and went forth out of the city by night, by the way of the  king’s garden, by the gate betwixt the two walls: and he  went out the way of the plain. 
Jeremiah 39:5 But the Chaldeans’  army pursued after them, and overtook Zedekiah in the  plains of Jericho: and when they had taken him, they  brought him up to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon to  Riblah in the land of Hamath, where he gave judgment upon  him. 
Jeremiah 39:6 Then the king of Babylon slew the sons of  Zedekiah in Riblah before his eyes: also the king of  Babylon slew all the nobles of Judah. 
Jeremiah 39:7 Moreover he  put out Zedekiah’s eyes, and bound him with chains, to  carry him to Babylon.  
Jeremiah 39:8 And the Chaldeans burned the king’s house, and  the houses of the people, with fire, and brake down the  walls of Jerusalem. 
Jeremiah 39:9 Then Nebuzar-adan the captain  of the guard carried away captive into Babylon the remnant  of the people that remained in the city, and those that fell  away, that fell to him, with the rest of the people that  remained. 
Jeremiah 39:10 But Nebuzar-adan the captain of the  guard left of the poor of the people, which had nothing, in  the land of Judah, and gave them vineyards and fields at the  same time.  
Jeremiah 39:11 Now Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon gave  charge concerning 
Jeremiah to Nebuzar-adan the captain of  the guard, saying, 
Jeremiah 39:12 Take him, and look well to him,  and do him no harm; but do unto him even as he shall say  unto thee. 
Jeremiah 39:13 So Nebuzar-adan the captain of the   guard sent, and Nebushasban, Rab-saris, and Nergalsharezer,  Rabmag, and all the king of Babylon’s princes;   
Jeremiah 39:14 Even they sent, and took Jeremiah out of the court  of the prison, and committed him unto Gedaliah the son of  Ahikam the son of Shaphan, that he should carry him home:  so he dwelt among the people.  
Jeremiah 39:15 Now the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah,  while he was shut up in the court of the prison, saying,  
Jeremiah 39:16 Go and speak to Ebed-melech the Ethiopian,  saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel;  Behold, I will bring my words upon this city for evil, and  not for good; and they shall be accomplished in that day  before thee. 
Jeremiah 39:17 But I will deliver thee in that day, saith  the LORD: and thou shalt not be given into the hand of the  men of whom thou art afraid. 
Jeremiah 39:18 For I will surely  deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by the sword, but thy life  shall be for a prey unto thee: because thou hast put thy trust  in me, saith the LORD.  
Jeremiah 40:1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD,  after that Nebuzar-adan the captain of the guard had let him  go from Ramah, when he had taken him being bound in  chains among all that were carried away captive of  Jerusalem and Judah, which were carried away captive unto  Babylon. 
Jeremiah 40:2 And the captain of the guard took  Jeremiah, and said unto him, The LORD thy God hath  pronounced this evil upon this place. 
Jeremiah 40:3 Now the  LORD hath brought it, and done according as he hath  said: because ye have sinned against the LORD, and have  not obeyed his voice, therefore this thing is come upon you.  
Jeremiah 40:4 And now, behold, I loose thee this day from the  chains which were upon thine hand. If it seem good unto  thee to come with me into Babylon, come; and I will look  well unto thee: but if it seem ill unto thee to come with me  into Babylon, forbear: behold, all the land is before thee:  whither it seemeth good and convenient for thee to go,  thither go. 
Jeremiah 40:5 Now while he was not yet gone back, he  said, Go back also to Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son  of Shaphan, whom the king of Babylon hath made governor  over the cities of Judah, and dwell with him among the  people: or go wheresoever it seemeth convenient unto thee  to go. So the captain of the guard gave him victuals and a  reward, and let him go. 
Jeremiah 40:6 Then went Jeremiah unto  Gedaliah the son of Ahikam to Mizpah; and dwelt with him  among the people that were left in the land.  
Jeremiah 40:7 Now when all the captains of the forces which  were in the fields, even they and their men, heard that  the king of Babylon had made Gedaliah the son of Ahikam  governor in the land, and had committed unto him men, and  women, and children, and of the poor of the land, of them  that were not carried away captive to Babylon; 
Jeremiah 40:8 Then  they came to Gedaliah to Mizpah, even Ishmael the son of  Nethaniah, and Johanan and Jonathan the sons of Kareah,  and Seraiah the son of Tanhumeth, and the sons of Ephai  the Netophathite, and Jezaniah the son of a Maachathite,  they and their men. 
Jeremiah 40:9 And Gedaliah the son of Ahikam  the son of Shaphan sware unto them and to their men,  saying, Fear not to serve the Chaldeans: dwell in the land,  and serve the king of Babylon, and it shall be well with you.  
Jeremiah 40:10 As for me, behold, I will dwell at Mizpah to serve  the Chaldeans, which will come unto us: but ye, gather ye  wine, and summer fruits, and oil, and put them in your  vessels, and dwell in your cities that ye have taken. 
Jeremiah 40:11  Likewise when all the Jews that were in Moab, and among  the Ammonites, and in Edom, and that were in all the  countries, heard that the king of Babylon had left a remnant  of Judah, and that he had set over them Gedaliah the son of  Ahikam the son of Shaphan; 
Jeremiah 40:12 Even all the Jews  returned out of all places whither they were driven, and  came to the land of Judah, to Gedaliah, unto Mizpah, and  gathered wine and summer fruits very much.   
Jeremiah 40:13 Moreover Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the  captains of the forces that were in the fields, came to  Gedaliah to Mizpah, 
Jeremiah 40:14 And said unto him, Dost thou  certainly know that Baalis the king of the Ammonites hath  sent Ishmael the son of Nethaniah to slay thee? But  Gedaliah the son of Ahikam believed them not. 
Jeremiah 40:15  Then Johanan the son of Kareah spake to Gedaliah in  Mizpah secretly, saying, Let me go, I pray thee, and I will  slay Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, and no man shall know  it: wherefore should he slay thee, that all the Jews which  are gathered unto thee should be scattered, and the remnant  in Judah perish? 
Jeremiah 40:16 But Gedaliah the son of Ahikam  said unto Johanan the son of Kareah, Thou shalt not do this  thing: for thou speakest falsely of Ishmael.  
Jeremiah 41:1 Now it came to pass in the seventh month, that  Ishmael the son of Nethaniah the son of Elishama, of the  seed royal, and the princes of the king, even ten men with  him, came unto Gedaliah the son of Ahikam to Mizpah; and  there they did eat bread together in Mizpah. 
Jeremiah 41:2 Then  arose Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, and the ten men that  were with him, and smote Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the  son of Shaphan with the sword, and slew him, whom the  king of Babylon had made governor over the land. 
Jeremiah 41:3  Ishmael also slew all the Jews that were with him, even  with Gedaliah, at Mizpah, and the Chaldeans that were  found there, and the men of war. 
Jeremiah 41:4 And it came to  pass the second day after he had slain Gedaliah, and no man  knew it, 
Jeremiah 41:5 That there came certain from Shechem,  from Shiloh, and from Samaria, even fourscore men,  having their beards shaven, and their clothes rent, and  having cut themselves, with offerings and incense in their  hand, to bring them to the house of the LORD. 
Jeremiah 41:6  And Ishmael the son of Nethaniah went forth from Mizpah  to meet them, weeping all along as he went: and it came to  pass, as he met them, he said unto them, Come to Gedaliah  the son of Ahikam. 
Jeremiah 41:7 And it was so, when they came  into the midst of the city, that Ishmael the son of Nethaniah  slew them, and cast them into the midst of the pit, he, and  the men that were with him. 
Jeremiah 41:8 But ten men were  found among them that said unto Ishmael, Slay us not: for  we have treasures in the field, of wheat, and of barley, and  of oil, and of honey. So he forbare, and slew them not  among their brethren. 
Jeremiah 41:9 Now the pit wherein Ishmael  had cast all the dead bodies of the men, whom he had slain  because of Gedaliah, was it which Asa the king had made  for fear of Baasha king of Israel: and Ishmael the son of  Nethaniah filled it with them that were slain. 
Jeremiah 41:10  Then Ishmael carried away captive all the residue of the  people that were in Mizpah, even the king’s daughters,  and all the people that remained in Mizpah, whom Nebuzaradan  the captain of the guard had committed to Gedaliah the  son of Ahikam: and Ishmael the son of Nethaniah carried  them away captive, and departed to go over to the  Ammonites.  
Jeremiah 41:11 But when Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the  captains of the forces that were with him, heard of all the  evil that Ishmael the son of Nethaniah had done, 
Jeremiah 41:12  Then they took all the men, and went to fight with Ishmael  the son of Nethaniah, and found him by the great waters that  are in Gibeon. 
Jeremiah 41:13 Now it came to pass, that when  all the people which were with Ishmael saw Johanan the  son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces that were with him, then they were glad. 
Jeremiah 41:14 So all the people  that Ishmael had carried away captive from Mizpah cast  about and returned, and went unto Johanan the son of  Kareah. 
Jeremiah 41:15 But Ishmael the son of Nethaniah escaped  from Johanan with eight men, and went to the Ammonites.   
Jeremiah 41:16 Then took Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the  captains of the forces that were with him, all the remnant  of the people whom he had recovered from Ishmael the son  of Nethaniah, from Mizpah, after that he had slain  Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, even mighty men of war, and  the women, and the children, and the eunuchs, whom he had  brought again from Gibeon: 
Jeremiah 41:17 And they departed,  and dwelt in the habitation of Chimham, which is by  Bethlehem, to go to enter into Egypt, 
Jeremiah 41:18 Because of  the Chaldeans: for they were afraid of them, because  Ishmael the son of Nethaniah had slain Gedaliah the son of  Ahikam, whom the king of Babylon made governor in the  land.  
Jeremiah 42:1 Then all the captains of the forces, and Johanan  the son of Kareah, and Jezaniah the son of Hoshaiah, and all  the people from the least even unto the greatest, came near,  
Jeremiah 42:2 And said unto Jeremiah the prophet, Let, we beseech  thee, our supplication be accepted before thee, and pray for  us unto the LORD thy God, even for all this remnant; (for  we are left but a few of many, as thine eyes do behold us:)  
Jeremiah 42:3 That the LORD thy God may shew us the way  wherein we may walk, and the thing that we may do. 
Jeremiah 42:4  Then Jeremiah the prophet said unto them, I have heard  you; behold, I will pray unto the LORD your God  according to your words; and it shall come to pass, that  whatsoever thing the LORD shall answer you, I will declare  it unto you; I will keep nothing back from you. 
Jeremiah 42:5  Then they said to Jeremiah, The LORD be a true and  faithful witness between us, if we do not even according to  all things for the which the LORD thy God shall send thee  to us. 
Jeremiah 42:6 Whether it be good, or whether it be evil,  we will obey the voice of the LORD our God, to whom we  send thee; that it may be well with us, when we obey the  voice of the LORD our God.  
Jeremiah 42:7 And it came to pass after ten days, that the word of  the LORD came unto Jeremiah. 
Jeremiah 42:8 Then called he  Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces  which were with him, and all the people from the least  even to the greatest, 
Jeremiah 42:9 And said unto them, Thus saith  the LORD, the God of Israel, unto whom ye sent me to  present your supplication before him; 
Jeremiah 42:10 If ye will still  abide in this land, then will I build you, and not pull you  down, and I will plant you, and not pluck you up: for I  repent me of the evil that I have done unto you. 
Jeremiah 42:11 Be  not afraid of the king of Babylon, of whom ye are afraid; be  not afraid of him, saith the LORD: for I am with you to  save you, and to deliver you from his hand. 
Jeremiah 42:12 And I  will shew mercies unto you, that he may have mercy upon  you, and cause you to return to your own land.  
Jeremiah 42:13 But if ye say, We will not dwell in this land,  neither obey the voice of the LORD your God, 
Jeremiah 42:14  Saying, No; but we will go into the land of Egypt, where we  shall see no war, nor hear the sound of the trumpet, nor have  hunger of bread; and there will we dwell: 
Jeremiah 42:15 And now  therefore hear the word of the LORD, ye remnant of Judah;  Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; If ye  wholly set your faces to enter into Egypt, and go to sojourn  there; 
Jeremiah 42:16 Then it shall come to pass, that the sword,  which ye feared, shall overtake you there in the land of  Egypt, and the famine, whereof ye were afraid, shall follow  close after you there in Egypt; and there ye shall die.  
Jeremiah 42:17 So shall it be with all the men that set their faces to  go into Egypt to sojourn there; they shall die by the sword,  by the famine, and by the pestilence: and none of them shall  remain or escape from the evil that I will bring upon them.  
Jeremiah 42:18 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of  Israel; As mine anger and my fury hath been poured forth  upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem; so shall my fury be  poured forth upon you, when ye shall enter into Egypt: and  ye shall be an execration, and an astonishment, and a curse,  and a reproach; and ye shall see this place no more.  
Jeremiah 42:19 The LORD hath said concerning you, O ye  remnant of Judah; Go ye not into Egypt: know certainly that  I have admonished you this day. 
Jeremiah 42:20 For ye dissembled  in your hearts, when ye sent me unto the LORD your God,  saying, Pray for us unto the LORD our God; and according  unto all that the LORD our God shall say, so declare unto  us, and we will do it. 
Jeremiah 42:21 And now I have this day  declared it to you; but ye have not obeyed the voice of the  LORD your God, nor any thing for the which he hath sent  me unto you. 
Jeremiah 42:22 Now therefore know certainly that ye  shall die by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence,  in the place whither ye desire to go and to sojourn.  
Jeremiah 43:1 And it came to pass, that when Jeremiah had  made an end of speaking unto all the people all the words of  the LORD their God, for which the LORD their God had  sent him to them, even all these words, 
Jeremiah 43:2 Then spake  Azariah the son of Hoshaiah, and Johanan the son of  Kareah, and all the proud men, saying unto Jeremiah, Thou  speakest falsely: the LORD our God hath not sent thee to  say, Go not into Egypt to sojourn there: 
Jeremiah 43:3 But Baruch  the son of Neriah setteth thee on against us, for to deliver us  into the hand of the Chaldeans, that they might put us to  death, and carry us away captives into Babylon. 
Jeremiah 43:4 So  Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the  forces, and all the people, obeyed not the voice of the  LORD, to dwell in the land of Judah. 
Jeremiah 43:5 But Johanan  the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces, took all  the remnant of Judah, that were returned from all nations,  whither they had been driven, to dwell in the land of Judah;  
Jeremiah 43:6 Even men, and women, and children, and the  king’s daughters, and every person that Nebuzar-adan the  captain of the guard had left with Gedaliah the son of  Ahikam the son of Shaphan, and Jeremiah the prophet, and  Baruch the son of Neriah. 
Jeremiah 43:7 So they came into the land  of Egypt: for they obeyed not the voice of the LORD: thus  came they even to Tahpanhes.  
Jeremiah 43:8 Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah  in Tahpanhes, saying, 
Jeremiah 43:9 Take great stones in thine  hand, and hide them in the clay in the brickkiln, which is  at the entry of Pharaoh’s house in Tahpanhes, in the sight of  the men of Judah; 
Jeremiah 43:10 And say unto them, Thus saith  the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will send  and take Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my servant,  and will set his throne upon these stones that I have hid; and  he shall spread his royal pavilion over them. 
Jeremiah 43:11 And  when he cometh, he shall smite the land of Egypt, and  deliver such as are for death to death; and such as are  for captivity to captivity; and such as are for the sword to  the sword. 
Jeremiah 43:12 And I will kindle a fire in the houses of  the gods of Egypt; and he shall burn them, and carry them  away captives: and he shall array himself with the land of  Egypt, as a shepherd putteth on his garment; and he shall go  forth from thence in peace. 
Jeremiah 43:13 He shall break also the  images of Beth-shemesh, that is in the land of Egypt; and  the houses of the gods of the Egyptians shall he burn with  fire.    
Jeremiah 44:1 The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the  Jews which dwell in the land of Egypt, which dwell at  Migdol, and at Tahpanhes, and at Noph, and in the country  of Pathros, saying, 
Jeremiah 44:2 Thus saith the LORD of hosts,  the God of Israel; Ye have seen all the evil that I have  brought upon Jerusalem, and upon all the cities of Judah;  and, behold, this day they are a desolation, and no man  dwelleth therein, 
Jeremiah 44:3 Because of their wickedness which  they have committed to provoke me to anger, in that they  went to burn incense, and to serve other gods, whom they  knew not, neither they, ye, nor your fathers. 
Jeremiah 44:4  Howbeit I sent unto you all my servants the prophets, rising  early and sending them, saying, Oh, do not this  abominable thing that I hate. 
Jeremiah 44:5 But they hearkened  not, nor inclined their ear to turn from their wickedness, to  burn no incense unto other gods. 
Jeremiah 44:6 Wherefore my fury  and mine anger was poured forth, and was kindled in the  cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem; and they are  wasted and desolate, as at this day. 
Jeremiah 44:7 Therefore now  thus saith the LORD, the God of hosts, the God of Israel;  Wherefore commit ye this great evil against your souls, to  cut off from you man and woman, child and suckling, out of  Judah, to leave you none to remain; 
Jeremiah 44:8 In that ye  provoke me unto wrath with the works of your hands,  burning incense unto other gods in the land of Egypt,  whither ye be gone to dwell, that ye might cut yourselves  off, and that ye might be a curse and a reproach among all  the nations of the earth? 
Jeremiah 44:9 Have ye forgotten the  wickedness of your fathers, and the wickedness of the kings  of Judah, and the wickedness of their wives, and your own  wickedness, and the wickedness of your wives, which they  have committed in the land of Judah, and in the streets of  Jerusalem? 
Jeremiah 44:10 They are not humbled even unto this  day, neither have they feared, nor walked in my law, nor in  my statutes, that I set before you and before your fathers.  
Jeremiah 44:11 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God  of Israel; Behold, I will set my face against you for evil, and  to cut off all Judah. 
Jeremiah 44:12 And I will take the remnant of  Judah, that have set their faces to go into the land of Egypt  to sojourn there, and they shall all be consumed, and fall  in the land of Egypt; they shall even be consumed by the  sword and by the famine: they shall die, from the least even  unto the greatest, by the sword and by the famine: and  they shall be an execration, and an astonishment, and a  curse, and a reproach. 
Jeremiah 44:13 For I will punish them that  dwell in the land of Egypt, as I have punished Jerusalem, by  the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence: 
Jeremiah 44:14 So  that none of the remnant of Judah, which are gone into the  land of Egypt to sojourn there, shall escape or remain, that  they should return into the land of Judah, to the which they  have a desire to return to dwell there: for none shall return  but such as shall escape.  
Jeremiah 44:15 Then all the men which knew that their wives had  burned incense unto other gods, and all the women that  stood by, a great multitude, even all the people that dwelt in  the land of Egypt, in Pathros, answered 
Jeremiah, saying,  
Jeremiah 44:16 As for the word that thou hast spoken unto us in  the name of the LORD, we will not hearken unto thee.  
Jeremiah 44:17 But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth  forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen  of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we  have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes,  in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for  then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no  evil. 
Jeremiah 44:18 But since we left off to burn incense to the  queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her,  we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by  the sword and by the famine. 
Jeremiah 44:19 And when we burned  incense to the queen of heaven, and poured out drink  offerings unto her, did we make her cakes to worship her,  and pour out drink offerings unto her, without our men?   
Jeremiah 44:20 Then Jeremiah said unto all the people, to the  men, and to the women, and to all the people which had  given him that answer, saying, 
Jeremiah 44:21 The incense that  ye burned in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of  Jerusalem, ye, and your fathers, your kings, and your  princes, and the people of the land, did not the LORD  remember them, and came it not into his mind? 
Jeremiah 44:22  So that the LORD could no longer bear, because of the evil  of your doings, and because of the abominations which ye  have committed; therefore is your land a desolation, and an  astonishment, and a curse, without an inhabitant, as at this  day. 
Jeremiah 44:23 Because ye have burned incense, and because  ye have sinned against the LORD, and have not obeyed the  voice of the LORD, nor walked in his law, nor in his  statutes, nor in his testimonies; therefore this evil is  happened unto you, as at this day. 
Jeremiah 44:24 Moreover  Jeremiah said unto all the people, and to all the women,  Hear the word of the LORD, all Judah that are in the land  of Egypt: 
Jeremiah 44:25 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God  of Israel, saying; Ye and your wives have both spoken with  your mouths, and fulfilled with your hand, saying, We will  surely perform our vows that we have vowed, to burn  incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink  offerings unto her: ye will surely accomplish your vows,  and surely perform your vows. 
Jeremiah 44:26 Therefore hear ye  the word of the LORD, all Judah that dwell in the land of  Egypt; Behold, I have sworn by my great name, saith the  LORD, that my name shall no more be named in the mouth  of any man of Judah in all the land of Egypt, saying, The  Lord GOD liveth. 
Jeremiah 44:27 Behold, I will watch over them  for evil, and not for good: and all the men of Judah that are  in the land of Egypt shall be consumed by the sword and by  the famine, until there be an end of them. 
Jeremiah 44:28 Yet a  small number that escape the sword shall return out of the  land of Egypt into the land of Judah, and all the remnant of  Judah, that are gone into the land of Egypt to sojourn there,  shall know whose words shall stand, mine, or theirs.  
Jeremiah 44:29 And this shall be a sign unto you, saith the  LORD, that I will punish you in this place, that ye may  know that my words shall surely stand against you for evil:  
Jeremiah 44:30 Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will give Pharaohhophra  king of Egypt into the hand of his enemies, and into  the hand of them that seek his life; as I gave Zedekiah king  of Judah into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon,  his enemy, and that sought his life.  
Jeremiah 45:1 The word that 
Jeremiah the prophet spake unto  Baruch the son of Neriah, when he had written these words  in a book at the mouth of 
Jeremiah, in the fourth year of  Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, saying, 
Jeremiah 45:2  Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel, unto thee, O  Baruch; 
Jeremiah 45:3 Thou didst say, Woe is me now! for the  LORD hath added grief to my sorrow; I fainted in my  sighing, and I find no rest.  
Jeremiah 45:4 Thus shalt thou say unto him, The LORD saith  thus; Behold, that which I have built will I break down,  and that which I have planted I will pluck up, even this  whole land. 
Jeremiah 45:5 And seekest thou great things for  thyself? seek them not: for, behold, I will bring evil upon  all flesh, saith the LORD: but thy life will I give unto thee  for a prey in all places whither thou goest. 
Jeremiah 46:1 The word of the LORD which came to Jeremiah  the prophet against the Gentiles; 
Jeremiah 46:2 Against Egypt,  against the army of Pharaoh-necho king of Egypt, which  was by the river Euphrates in Carchemish, which  Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon smote in the fourth year of  Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah. 
Jeremiah 46:3 Order ye  the buckler and shield, and draw near to battle. 
Jeremiah 46:4  Harness the horses; and get up, ye horsemen, and stand  forth with your helmets; furbish the spears, and put on  the brigandines. 
Jeremiah 46:5 Wherefore have I seen them  dismayed and turned away back? and their mighty ones  are beaten down, and are fled apace, and look not back:  for fear was round about, saith the LORD. 
Jeremiah 46:6 Let  not the swift flee away, nor the mighty man escape; they  shall stumble, and fall toward the north by the river  Euphrates. 
Jeremiah 46:7 Who is this that cometh up as a flood,  whose waters are moved as the rivers? 
Jeremiah 46:8 Egypt riseth  up like a flood, and his waters are moved like the rivers;  and he saith, I will go up, and will cover the earth; I will  destroy the city and the inhabitants thereof. 
Jeremiah 46:9 Come  up, ye horses; and rage, ye chariots; and let the mighty men  come forth; the Ethiopians and the Libyans, that handle the  shield; and the Lydians, that handle and bend the bow.  
Jeremiah 46:10 For this is the day of the Lord GOD of hosts, a  day of vengeance, that he may avenge him of his  adversaries: and the sword shall devour, and it shall be  satiate and made drunk with their blood: for the Lord GOD  of hosts hath a sacrifice in the north country by the river  Euphrates. 
Jeremiah 46:11 Go up into Gilead, and take balm, O  virgin, the daughter of Egypt: in vain shalt thou use many  medicines; for thou shalt not be cured. 
Jeremiah 46:12 The  nations have heard of thy shame, and thy cry hath filled the  land: for the mighty man hath stumbled against the mighty,  and they are fallen both together.  
Jeremiah 46:13 The word that the LORD spake to Jeremiah the  prophet, how Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon should come  and smite the land of Egypt.

Jeremiah the prophet  commanded Seraiah the son of Neriah, the son of Maaseiah,  when he went with Zedekiah the king of Judah into Babylon  in the fourth year of his reign. And this Seraiah was a  quiet prince.

Jeremiah 52:8 But the army of the Chaldeans pursued after the  king, and overtook Zedekiah in the plains of Jericho; and all  his army was scattered from him. 
Jeremiah 52:9 Then they took the  king, and carried him up unto the king of Babylon to Riblah  in the land of Hamath; where he gave judgment upon him.  
Jeremiah 52:10 And the king of Babylon slew the sons of Zedekiah  before his eyes: he slew also all the princes of Judah in  Riblah. 
Jeremiah 52:11 Then he put out the eyes of Zedekiah; and  the king of Babylon bound him in chains, and carried him to  Babylon, and put him in prison till the day of his death.  
Jeremiah 52:12 Now in the fifth month, in the tenth day of the  month, which was the nineteenth year of Nebuchadrezzar  king of Babylon, came Nebuzar-adan, captain of the guard,  which served the king of Babylon, into Jerusalem,  
Jeremiah 52:13 And burned the house of the LORD, and the king’s  house; and all the houses of Jerusalem, and all the houses of  the great men, burned he with fire: 
Jeremiah 52:14 And all the  army of the Chaldeans, that were with the captain of the  guard, brake down all the walls of Jerusalem round about.  
Jeremiah 52:15 Then Nebuzar-adan the captain of the guard carried  away captive certain of the poor of the people, and the  residue of the people that remained in the city, and those  that fell away, that fell to the king of Babylon, and the rest  of the multitude. 
Jeremiah 52:16 But Nebuzar-adan the captain of  the guard left certain of the poor of the land for  vinedressers and for husbandmen. 
Jeremiah 52:17 Also the pillars  of brass that were in the house of the LORD, and the  bases, and the brasen sea that was in the house of the  LORD, the Chaldeans brake, and carried all the brass of  them to Babylon. 
Jeremiah 52:18 The caldrons also, and the  shovels, and the snuffers, and the bowls, and the spoons,  and all the vessels of brass wherewith they ministered, took  they away. 
Jeremiah 52:19 And the basons, and the firepans, and  the bowls, and the caldrons, and the candlesticks, and the  spoons, and the cups; that which was of gold in gold,  and that which was of silver in silver, took the captain  of the guard away. 
Jeremiah 52:20 The two pillars, one sea, and  twelve brasen bulls that were under the bases, which king  Solomon had made in the house of the LORD: the brass of  all these vessels was without weight. 
Jeremiah 52:21 And  concerning the pillars, the height of one pillar was  eighteen cubits; and a fillet of twelve cubits did compass it;  and the thickness thereof was four fingers: it was hollow.  
Jeremiah 52:22 And a chapiter of brass was upon it; and the  height of one chapiter was five cubits, with network and  pomegranates upon the chapiters round about, all of brass.  The second pillar also and the pomegranates were like  unto these. 
Jeremiah 52:23 And there were ninety and six  pomegranates on a side; and all the pomegranates upon  the network were an hundred round about.   
Jeremiah 52:24 And the captain of the guard took Seraiah the  chief priest, and Zephaniah the second priest, and the three  keepers of the door: 
Jeremiah 52:25 He took also out of the city an  eunuch, which had the charge of the men of war; and seven  men of them that were near the king’s person, which were  found in the city; and the principal scribe of the host, who  mustered the people of the land; and threescore men of the  people of the land, that were found in the midst of the city.  
Jeremiah 52:26 So Nebuzar-adan the captain of the guard took  them, and brought them to the king of Babylon to Riblah.  
Jeremiah 52:27 And the king of Babylon smote them, and put them  to death in Riblah in the land of Hamath. Thus Judah was  carried away captive out of his own land. 
Jeremiah 52:28 This is  the people whom Nebuchadrezzar carried away captive: in  the seventh year three thousand Jews and three and twenty:  
Jeremiah 52:29 In the eighteenth year of Nebuchadrezzar he carried  away captive from Jerusalem eight hundred thirty and two  persons: 
Jeremiah 52:30 In the three and twentieth year of  Nebuchadrezzar Nebuzar- adan the captain of the guard  carried away captive of the Jews seven hundred forty and  five persons: all the persons were four thousand and six  hundred.  
Jeremiah 52:31 And it came to pass in the seven and thirtieth  year of the captivity of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the  twelfth month, in the five and twentieth day of the month,  that Evil-merodach king of Babylon in the first year of  his reign lifted up the head of Jehoiachin king of Judah, and  brought him forth out of prison, 
Jeremiah 52:32 And spake kindly  unto him, and set his throne above the throne of the kings  that were with him in Babylon, 

Jeremiah 52:33 And changed his  prison garments: and he did continually eat bread before  him all the days of his life. 

Jeremiah 52:34 And for his diet, there  was a continual diet given him of the king of Babylon,  every day a portion until the day of his death, all the days of  his life.
