Jeremiah 12
English Standard Version
12Righteous are you, O LORD, when I complain to you; yet I would plead my case before you. Why does the way of the wicked prosper? Why do all who are treacherous thrive?H6662H3068H7378H1696H4941H1870H7563H6743H7951H899H898 2You plant them, and they take root; they grow and produce fruit; you are near in their mouth and far from their heart.H5193H8327H3212H6213H6529H7138H6310H7350H3629 3But you, O LORD, know me; you see me, and test my heart toward you. Pull them out like sheep for the slaughter, and set them apart for the day of slaughter.H3068H3045H7200H974H3820H5423H6629H2878H6942H3117H2028 4How long will the land mourn and the grass of every field wither? For the evil of those who dwell in it the beasts and the birds are swept away, because they said, "He will not see our latter end."H776H56H6212H7704H3001H7451H3427H929H5595H5775H559H7200H319 5"If you have raced with men on foot, and they have wearied you, how will you compete with horses? And if in a safe land you are so trusting, what will you do in the thicket of the Jordan?H7323H7273H3811H8474H5483H776H7965H982H6213H1347H3383 6For even your brothers and the house of your father, even they have dealt treacherously with you; they are in full cry after you; do not believe them, though they speak friendly words to you."H251H1004H1H898H7121H4392H310H539H1696H2896 7"I have forsaken my house; I have abandoned my heritage; I have given the beloved of my soul into the hands of her enemies.H5800H1004H5203H5159H5414H3033H5315H3709H341 8My heritage has become to me like a lion in the forest; she has lifted up her voice against me; therefore I hate her.H5159H738H3293H5414H6963H8130 9Is my heritage to me like a hyena's lair? Are the birds of prey against her all around? Go, assemble all the wild beasts; bring them to devour.H5159H6641H5861H5861H5439H3212H622H2416H7704H857H402 10Many shepherds have destroyed my vineyard; they have trampled down my portion; they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness.H7227H7462H7843H3754H947H2513H947H5414H2532H2513H8077H4057 11They have made it a desolation; desolate, it mourns to me. The whole land is made desolate, but no man lays it to heart.H7760H8076H8077H56H776H8074H376H7760H3820 12Upon all the bare heights in the desert destroyers have come, for the sword of the LORD devours from one end of the land to the other; no flesh has peace.H7703H935H8205H4057H2719H3068H398H7097H776H7097H776H1320H7965 13They have sown wheat and have reaped thorns; they have tired themselves out but profit nothing. They shall be ashamed of their harvests because of the fierce anger of the LORD."H2232H2406H7114H6975H2470H3276H954H8393H2740H639H3068 14Thus says the LORD concerning all my evil neighbors who touch the heritage that I have given my people Israel to inherit: "Behold, I will pluck them up from their land, and I will pluck up the house of Judah from among them.H559H3068H7451H7934H5060H5159H5971H3478H5157H5428H127H5428H1004H3063H8432 15And after I have plucked them up, I will again have compassion on them, and I will bring them again each to his heritage and each to his land.H310H5428H7725H7355H7725H376H5159H376H776 16And it shall come to pass, if they will diligently learn the ways of my people, to swear by my name, 'As the LORD lives,' even as they taught my people to swear by Baal, then they shall be built up in the midst of my people.H3925H3925H1870H5971H7650H8034H3068H2416H3925H5971H7650H1168H1129H8432H5971 17But if any nation will not listen, then I will utterly pluck it up and destroy it, declares the LORD."H8085H5428H5428H6H1471H5002H3068
