Jeremiah’s Lifestyle and Message

16The word of the LORD also came to me, saying,H1697H3068H559 2"You shall not take a wife, nor shall you have sons or daughters in this place."H3947H802H1121H1323H4725 3For thus says the LORD concerning the sons and daughters who are born in this place, and concerning their mothers who bore them and their fathers who begot them in this land:H559H3068H1121H1323H3205H4725H517H3205H1H3209H776 4"They shall die gruesome deaths; they shall not be lamented nor shall they be buried, but they shall be like refuse on the face of the earth. They shall be consumed by the sword and by famine, and their corpses shall be meat for the birds of heaven and for the beasts of the earth."H4191H8463H4463H5594H6912H1828H6440H127H3615H2719H7458H5038H3978H5775H8064H929H776 5For thus says the LORD: "Do not enter the house of mourning, nor go to lament or bemoan them; for I have taken away My peace from this people," says the LORD, "lovingkindness and mercies.H559H3068H935H1004H4798H3212H5594H5110H622H7965H5971H5002H3068H2617H7356 6"Both the great and the small shall die in this land. They shall not be buried; neither shall men lament for them, cut themselves, nor make themselves bald for them.H1419H6996H4191H776H6912H5594H1413H7139 7"Nor shall men break bread in mourning for them, to comfort them for the dead; nor shall men give them the cup of consolation to drink for their father or their mother.H6536H60H5162H4191H3563H8575H8248H1H517 8"Also you shall not go into the house of feasting to sit with them, to eat and drink."H935H1004H4960H3427H398H8354 9For thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: "Behold, I will cause to cease from this place, before your eyes and in your days, the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride.H559H3068H6635H430H3478H7673H4725H5869H3117H6963H8342H6963H8057H6963H2860H6963H3618 10"And it shall be, when you show this people all these words, and they say to you, 'Why has the LORD pronounced all this great disaster against us? Or what is our iniquity? Or what is our sin that we have committed against the LORD our God?'H5046H5971H1697H559H3068H1696H1419H7451H5771H2403H2398H3068H430 11"then you shall say to them, 'Because your fathers have forsaken Me,' says the LORD; 'they have walked after other gods and have served them and worshiped them, and have forsaken Me and not kept My law.H559H1H5800H5002H3068H3212H310H312H430H5647H7812H5800H8104H8451 12'And you have done worse than your fathers, for behold, each one follows the dictates of his own evil heart, so that no one listens to Me.H6213H7489H1H2009H1980H376H310H8307H7451H3820H8085 13'Therefore I will cast you out of this land into a land that you do not know, neither you nor your fathers; and there you shall serve other gods day and night, where I will not show you favor.'H2904H776H776H3045H1H5647H312H430H3119H3915H5414H2594

God Will Restore Israel

14"Therefore behold, the days are coming," says the LORD, "that it shall no more be said, 'The LORD lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt,'H3117H935H5002H3068H559H3068H2416H5927H1121H3478H776H4714 15"but, 'The LORD lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north and from all the lands where He had driven them.' For I will bring them back into their land which I gave to their fathers.H3068H2416H5927H1121H3478H776H6828H776H5080H7725H127H5414H1 16"Behold, I will send for many fishermen," says the LORD, "and they shall fish them; and afterward I will send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.H7971H7227H1771H1728H5002H3068H1770H310H7971H7227H6719H6679H2022H1389H5357H5553 17"For My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from My face, nor is their iniquity hidden from My eyes.H5869H1870H5641H6440H5771H6845H5048H5869 18"And first I will repay double for their iniquity and their sin, because they have defiled My land; they have filled My inheritance with the carcasses of their detestable and abominable idols."H7223H7999H5771H2403H4932H2490H776H4390H5159H5038H8251H8441 19O LORD, my strength and my fortress, My refuge in the day of affliction, The Gentiles shall come to You From the ends of the earth and say, "Surely our fathers have inherited lies, Worthlessness and unprofitable things."H3068H5797H4581H4498H3117H6869H1471H935H657H776H559H1H5157H8267H1892H3276 20Will a man make gods for himself, Which are not gods?H120H6213H430H430 21"Therefore behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know My hand and My might; And they shall know that My name is the LORD.H6471H3045H3045H3027H1369H3045H8034H3068
