Jeremiah 17
Today's New International Version
17"Judah's sin is engraved with an iron tool, inscribed with a flint point, on the tablets of their hearts and on the horns of their altars.H2403H3063H3789H5842H1270H6856H8068H2790H3871H3820H7161H4196 2Even their children remember their altars and Asherah poles beside the spreading trees and on the high hills.H1121H2142H4196H842H7488H6086H1364H1389 3My mountain in the land and your wealth and all your treasures I will give away as plunder, together with your high places, because of sin throughout your country.H2042H7704H5414H2428H214H957H1116H2403H1366 4Through your own fault you will lose the inheritance I gave you. I will enslave you to your enemies in a land you do not know, for you have kindled my anger, and it will burn forever."H8058H5159H5414H5647H341H776H3045H6919H784H639H3344H5704H5769 5This is what the LORD says: "Cursed are those who trust in mortals, who depend on flesh for their strength and whose hearts turn away from the LORD.H559H3068H779H1397H982H120H7760H1320H2220H3820H5493H3068 6They will be like a bush in the wastelands; they will not see prosperity when it comes. They will dwell in the parched places of the desert, in a salt land where no one lives.H6199H6160H7200H2896H935H7931H2788H4057H4420H776H3427 7"But blessed are those who trust in the LORD, whose confidence is in him.H1288H1397H982H3068H4009H3068 8They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit."H6086H8362H4325H7971H8328H3105H7200H2527H935H5929H7488H1672H8141H1226H4185H6213H6529 9The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?H3820H6121H605H3045 10"I the LORD search the heart and examine the mind, to reward everyone according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve."H3068H2713H3820H974H3629H5414H376H1870H6529H4611 11Like a partridge that hatches eggs it did not lay are those who gain riches by unjust means. When their lives are half gone, their riches will desert them, and in the end they will prove to be fools.H7124H1716H3205H6213H6239H4941H5800H2677H3117H319H5036 12A glorious throne, exalted from the beginning, is the place of our sanctuary.H3519H4791H3678H7223H4725H4720 13LORD, you are the hope of Israel; all who forsake you will be put to shame. Those who turn away from you will be written in the dust because they have forsaken the LORD, the spring of living water.H3068H4723H3478H5800H954H3249H5493H3789H776H5800H3068H4726H2416H4325 14Heal me, LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.H7495H3068H7495H3467H3467H8416 15They keep saying to me, "Where is the word of the LORD? Let it now be fulfilled!"H559H1697H3068H935 16I have not run away from being your shepherd; you know I have not desired the day of despair. What passes my lips is open before you.H213H7462H310H183H605H3117H3045H4161H8193H5227H6440 17Do not be a terror to me; you are my refuge in the day of disaster.H4288H4268H3117H7451 18Let my persecutors be put to shame, but keep me from shame; let them be terrified, but keep me from terror. Bring on them the day of disaster; destroy them with double destruction.H954H7291H954H2865H2865H935H3117H7451H7665H4932H7670

Keeping the Sabbath Day Holy

19This is what the LORD said to me: "Go and stand at the gate of the people, through which the kings of Judah go in and out; stand also at all the other gates of Jerusalem.H559H3068H1980H5975H8179H1121H5971H4428H3063H935H3318H8179H3389 20Say to them, 'Hear the word of the LORD, you kings of Judah and all people of Judah and everyone living in Jerusalem who come through these gates.H559H8085H1697H3068H4428H3063H3063H3427H3389H935H8179 21This is what the LORD says: Be careful not to carry a load on the Sabbath day or bring it through the gates of Jerusalem.H559H3068H8104H5315H5375H4853H7676H3117H935H8179H3389 22Do not bring a load out of your houses or do any work on the Sabbath, but keep the Sabbath day holy, as I commanded your ancestors.H3318H4853H1004H7676H3117H6213H4399H6942H7676H3117H6680H1 23Yet they did not listen or pay attention; they were stiff-necked and would not listen or respond to discipline.H8085H5186H241H6203H7185H8085H3947H4148 24But if you are careful to obey me, declares the LORD, and bring no load through the gates of this city on the Sabbath, but keep the Sabbath day holy by not doing any work on it,H8085H8085H5002H3068H935H4853H8179H5892H7676H3117H6942H7676H3117H6213H1115H4399 25then kings who sit on David's throne will come through the gates of this city with their officials. They and their officials will come riding in chariots and on horses, accompanied by the men of Judah and those living in Jerusalem, and this city will be inhabited forever.H935H8179H5892H4428H8269H3427H3678H1732H7392H7393H5483H8269H376H3063H3427H3389H5892H3427H5769 26People will come from the towns of Judah and the villages around Jerusalem, from the territory of Benjamin and the western foothills, from the hill country and the Negev, bringing burnt offerings and sacrifices, grain offerings and incense, and bringing thank offerings to the house of the LORD.H935H5892H3063H5439H3389H776H1144H8219H2022H5045H935H5930H2077H4503H3828H935H8426H1004H3068 27But if you do not obey me to keep the Sabbath day holy by not carrying any load as you come through the gates of Jerusalem on the Sabbath day, then I will kindle an unquenchable fire in the gates of Jerusalem that will consume her fortresses.' "H8085H6942H7676H3117H5375H4853H935H8179H3389H7676H3117H3341H784H8179H398H759H3389H3518
