Jeremiah 13
Amplified Bible
13THUS THE Lord said to me: Go and buy yourself a linen girdle and put it on your loins, but do not put it in water.H559H3068H1980H7069H6593H232H7760H4975H935H4325 2So I bought a girdle {or} waistcloth, according to the word of the Lord, and put it on my loins.H7069H232H1697H3068H7760H4975 3And the word of the Lord came to me the second time, saying,H1697H3068H8145H559 4Take the girdle which you have bought, which is on your loins, and arise, go to the [river] Euphrates, and hide it there in a cleft of the rock.H3947H232H7069H4975H6965H3212H6578H2934H5357H5553 5So I went and hid it by the Euphrates, as the Lord commanded me.H3212H2934H6578H3068H6680 6And after many days the Lord said to me, Arise, go to the Euphrates, and take from there the girdle which I commanded you to hide there.H7093H7227H3117H3068H559H6965H3212H6578H3947H232H6680H2934 7Then I went to the Euphrates and dug and took the girdle {or} waistcloth from the place where I had hidden it. And behold, the girdle was decayed {and} spoiled; it was good for nothing.H3212H6578H2658H3947H232H4725H2934H232H7843H6743 8Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying,H1697H3068H559 9Thus says the Lord: After this manner will I mar the pride of Judah and the great pride of Jerusalem.H559H3068H7843H1347H3063H7227H1347H3389 10These evil people, who refuse to hear My words, who walk in the stubbornness of their hearts and have gone after other gods to serve them and to worship them, shall even be like this girdle {or} waistcloth, which is profitable for nothing.H7451H5971H3987H8085H1697H1980H8307H3820H3212H310H312H430H5647H7812H232H6743 11For as the girdle clings to the loins of a man, so I caused the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah to cling to Me, says the Lord, that they might be for Me a people, a name, a praise, and a glory; but they would not listen {or} obey.H232H1692H4975H376H1692H1004H3478H1004H3063H5002H3068H5971H8034H8416H8597H8085 12Therefore you shall speak to them this word: Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel: Every bottle {and} jar should be filled with wine. [The people] will say to you, Do we not certainly know that every bottle {and} jar should be filled with wine?H559H1697H559H3068H430H3478H5035H4390H3196H559H3045H3045H5035H4390H3196 13Then say to them, Thus says the Lord: Behold, I will fill with drunkenness all the inhabitants of this land, even the kings who sit upon David's throne, the priests, the prophets, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem.H559H559H3068H4390H3427H776H4428H3427H1732H3678H3548H5030H3427H3389H7943 14And I will dash them one against another, even the fathers and the sons together, says the Lord. I will not pity or spare or have compassion, that I should not destroy them.H5310H376H251H1H1121H3162H5002H3068H2550H2347H7355H7843 15Hear and give ear, do not be proud, for the Lord has spoken [says Jeremiah].H8085H238H1361H3068H1696 16Give glory to the Lord your God before He brings darkness and before your feet stumble upon the dark {and} twilit mountains, and [before], while you are looking for light, He turns it into the shadow of death and makes it thick darkness.H5414H3519H3068H430H2821H7272H5062H5399H2022H6960H216H7760H6757H7896H7896H6205 17But if you will not hear {and} obey, I will weep in secret for your pride; my eyes will weep bitterly and run down with tears, because the Lord's flock has been taken captive.H8085H5315H1058H4565H6440H1466H5869H1830H1830H3381H1832H3068H5739H7617 18Say to the king and the queen mother, Humble yourselves {and} take a lowly seat, for down from your head has come your beautiful crown (the crown of your glory).H559H4428H1377H8213H3427H4761H3381H5850H8597 19The cities of the South (the Negeb) have been shut up, and there is no one to open them; all Judah has been carried away captive, it has been wholly taken captive {and} into exile.H5892H5045H5462H6605H3063H1540H7965H1540 20Lift up your eyes and behold those [the eruption of a hostile army] who come from the north. Where is the flock that was given to you [to shepherd], your beautiful flock?H5375H5869H7200H935H6828H5739H5414H8597H6629 21What will you say [O Jerusalem] when He [the Lord] sets over you as head those [tyrannical foreign nations] whom you yourselves [at intervals] have taught to be lovers (allies) with you [instructing them, even your friends, to be head over you]? Will not pangs take hold of you like that of a woman in travail?H559H6485H3925H441H7218H2256H270H802H3205 22And if you say in your heart, Why have these things come upon me?--[the answer is], Because of the greatness of your iniquity has your long robe been pulled aside [showing you in the garb of a menial] {and} have you [barefooted and treated like a slave] suffered violence.H559H3824H7122H7230H5771H7757H1540H6119H2554 23Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots? Then also can you do good who are accustomed {and} taught [even trained] to do evil.H3569H2015H5785H5246H2272H3201H3190H3928H7489 24Therefore I will scatter you like chaff driven away by the wind from the desert.H6327H7179H5674H7307H4057 25This is your lot, the portion measured to you from Me, says the Lord, because you have forgotten Me and trusted in falsehood [false gods and alliances with idolatrous nations].H1486H4490H4055H5002H3068H7911H982H8267 26Therefore I Myself will [retaliate], throwing your skirts up over your face, that your shame [of being clad like a slave] may be exposed.H2834H7757H6440H7036H7200 27I have seen your detestable acts, even your adulteries and your lustful neighings [after idols], and the lewdness of your harlotry on the hills in the field. Woe to you, O Jerusalem! For how long a time yet will you not [meet My conditions and] be made clean?H7200H5004H4684H2154H2184H8251H1389H7704H188H3389H2891H5750H310
