20When the priest Pashhur son of Immer, the official in charge of the temple of the LORD, heard Jeremiah prophesying these things,H6583H1121H564H3548H6496H5057H1004H3068H8085H3414H5012H16972he had Jeremiah the prophet beaten and put in the stocks at the Upper Gate of Benjamin at the LORD's temple.H6583H5221H3414H5030H5414H4115H5945H8179H1144H1004H30683The next day, when Pashhur released him from the stocks, Jeremiah said to him, "The LORD's name for you is not Pashhur, but Terror on Every Side.H4283H6583H3318H3414H4115H559H3414H3068H7121H8034H6583H40364For this is what the LORD says: 'I will make you a terror to yourself and to all your friends; with your own eyes you will see them fall by the sword of their enemies. I will give all Judah into the hands of the king of Babylon, who will carry them away to Babylon or put them to the sword.H559H3068H5414H4032H157H5307H2719H341H5869H7200H5414H3063H3027H4428H894H1540H894H5221H27195I will deliver all the wealth of this city into the hands of their enemies—all its products, all its valuables and all the treasures of the kings of Judah. They will take it away as plunder and carry it off to Babylon.H5414H2633H5892H3018H3366H214H4428H3063H5414H3027H341H962H3947H935H8946And you, Pashhur, and all who live in your house will go into exile to Babylon. There you will die and be buried, you and all your friends to whom you have prophesied lies.' "H6583H3427H1004H3212H7628H935H894H4191H6912H157H5012H8267
7You deceived me, LORD, and I was deceived ; you overpowered me and prevailed. I am ridiculed all day long; everyone mocks me.H3068H6601H6601H2388H3201H7814H3117H39328Whenever I speak, I cry out proclaiming violence and destruction. So the word of the LORD has brought me insult and reproach all day long.H1767H1696H2199H7121H2555H7701H1697H3068H2781H7047H31179But if I say, "I will not mention his word or speak anymore in his name," his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot.H559H2142H1696H8034H3820H1197H784H6113H6106H3811H3557H320110I hear many whispering, "Terror on every side! Denounce him! Let's denounce him!" All my friends are waiting for me to slip, saying, "Perhaps he will be deceived; then we will prevail over him and take our revenge on him."H8085H1681H7227H4032H5439H5046H5046H582H7965H8104H6763H6761H6601H3201H3947H536011But the LORD is with me like a mighty warrior; so my persecutors will stumble and not prevail. They will fail and be thoroughly disgraced; their dishonor will never be forgotten.H3068H1368H6184H7291H3782H3201H3966H954H7919H5769H3639H791112LORD Almighty, you who examine the righteous and probe the heart and mind, let me see your vengeance on them, for to you I have committed my cause.H3068H6635H974H6662H7200H3629H3820H7200H5360H1540H737913Sing to the LORD! Give praise to the LORD! He rescues the life of the needy from the hands of the wicked.H7891H3068H1984H3068H5337H5315H34H3027H748914Cursed be the day I was born! May the day my mother bore me not be blessed!H779H3117H3205H3117H517H3205H128815Cursed be the man who brought my father the news, who made him very glad, saying, "A child is born to you—a son!"H779H376H1319H1H559H2145H1121H3205H8055H805516May that man be like the towns the LORD overthrew without pity. May he hear wailing in the morning, a battle cry at noon.H376H5892H3068H2015H5162H8085H2201H1242H8643H6256H667217For he did not kill me in the womb, with my mother as my grave, her womb enlarged forever.H4191H7358H517H6913H7358H5769H203018Why did I ever come out of the womb to see trouble and sorrow and to end my days in shame?H3318H7358H7200H5999H3015H3117H3615H1322
