King James Version (with Strongs Data)

The Word of God to Pashhur

20Now PashurH6583 the sonH1121 of ImmerH564 the priestH3548, who was also chiefH6496 governorH5057 in the houseH1004 of the LORDH3068, heardH8085 that JeremiahH3414 prophesiedH5012 these thingsH1697. 2Then PashurH6583 smoteH5221 JeremiahH3414 the prophetH5030, and putH5414 him in the stocksH4115 that were in the highH5945 gateH8179 of BenjaminH1144, which was by the houseH1004 of the LORDH3068. 3And it came to pass on the morrowH4283, that PashurH6583 brought forthH3318 JeremiahH3414 out of the stocksH4115. Then saidH559 JeremiahH3414 unto him, The LORDH3068 hath not calledH7121 thy nameH8034 PashurH6583, but MagormissabibH4036. / Magormissabib: that is, Fear round about 4For thus saithH559 the LORDH3068, Behold, I will makeH5414 thee a terrorH4032 to thyself, and to all thy friendsH157: and they shall fallH5307 by the swordH2719 of their enemiesH341, and thine eyesH5869 shall beholdH7200 it: and I will giveH5414 all JudahH3063 into the handH3027 of the kingH4428 of BabylonH894, and he shall carry them captiveH1540 into BabylonH894, and shall slayH5221 them with the swordH2719. 5Moreover I will deliverH5414 all the strengthH2633 of this cityH5892, and all the laboursH3018 thereof, and all the precious thingsH3366 thereof, and all the treasuresH214 of the kingsH4428 of JudahH3063 will I giveH5414 into the handH3027 of their enemiesH341, which shall spoilH962 them, and takeH3947 them, and carryH935 them to BabylonH894. 6And thou, PashurH6583, and all that dwellH3427 in thine houseH1004 shall goH3212 into captivityH7628: and thou shalt comeH935 to BabylonH894, and there thou shalt dieH4191, and shalt be buriedH6912 there, thou, and all thy friendsH157, to whom thou hast prophesiedH5012 liesH8267.

Jeremiah’s Unpopular Ministry

7O LORDH3068, thou hast deceivedH6601 me, and I was deceivedH6601: thou art strongerH2388 than I, and hast prevailedH3201: I am in derisionH7814 dailyH3117, every one mockethH3932 me. / was deceived: or, was enticed 8For sinceH1767 I spakeH1696, I cried outH2199, I criedH7121 violenceH2555 and spoilH7701; because the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 was made a reproachH2781 unto me, and a derisionH7047, dailyH3117. 9Then I saidH559, I will not make mentionH2142 of him, nor speakH1696 any more in his nameH8034. But his word was in mine heartH3820 as a burningH1197 fireH784 shut upH6113 in my bonesH6106, and I was wearyH3811 with forbearingH3557, and I couldH3201 not stay. 10For I heardH8085 the defamingH1681 of manyH7227, fearH4032 on every sideH5439. ReportH5046, say they, and we will reportH5046 it. All my familiarsH582H7965 watchedH8104 for my haltingH6763H6761, saying, Peradventure he will be enticedH6601, and we shall prevailH3201 against him, and we shall takeH3947 our revengeH5360 on him. / All…: Heb. Every man of my peace 11But the LORDH3068 is with me as a mightyH1368 terrible oneH6184: therefore my persecutorsH7291 shall stumbleH3782, and they shall not prevailH3201: they shall be greatlyH3966 ashamedH954; for they shall not prosperH7919: their everlastingH5769 confusionH3639 shall never be forgottenH7911. 12But, O LORDH3068 of hostsH6635, that triestH974 the righteousH6662, and seestH7200 the reinsH3629 and the heartH3820, let me seeH7200 thy vengeanceH5360 on them: for unto thee have I openedH1540 my causeH7379. 13SingH7891 unto the LORDH3068, praiseH1984 ye the LORDH3068: for he hath deliveredH5337 the soulH5315 of the poorH34 from the handH3027 of evildoersH7489. 14CursedH779 be the dayH3117 wherein I was bornH3205: let not the dayH3117 wherein my motherH517 bareH3205 me be blessedH1288. 15CursedH779 be the manH376 who brought tidingsH1319 to my fatherH1, sayingH559, A manH2145 childH1121 is bornH3205 unto thee; making him veryH8055 gladH8055. 16And let that manH376 be as the citiesH5892 which the LORDH3068 overthrewH2015, and repentedH5162 not: and let him hearH8085 the cryH2201 in the morningH1242, and the shoutingH8643 at noontideH6256H6672; 17Because he slewH4191 me not from the wombH7358; or that my motherH517 might have been my graveH6913, and her wombH7358 to be alwaysH5769 greatH2030 with me. 18Wherefore came I forthH3318 out of the wombH7358 to seeH7200 labourH5999 and sorrowH3015, that my daysH3117 should be consumedH3615 with shameH1322?
