21The word which came unto Jeremiah from the LORD, when king Zedekiah sent unto him Pashur the son of Melchiah, and Zephaniah the son of Maaseiah the priest, saying,H1697H3414H3068H4428H6667H7971H6583H1121H4441H6846H1121H4641H3548H5592Enquire, I pray thee, of the LORD for us; for Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon maketh war against us; if so be that the LORD will deal with us according to all his wondrous works, that he may go up from us.H1875H3068H1157H5019H4428H894H3898H3068H6213H6381H59273Then said Jeremiah unto them, Thus shall ye say to Zedekiah:H559H3414H559H66674Thus saith the LORD God of Israel; Behold, I will turn back the weapons of war that are in your hands, wherewith ye fight against the king of Babylon, and against the Chaldeans, which besiege you without the walls, and I will assemble them into the midst of this city.H559H3068H430H3478H5437H3627H4421H3027H3898H4428H894H3778H6696H2351H2346H622H8432H58925And I myself will fight against you with an outstretched hand and with a strong arm, even in anger, and in fury, and in great wrath.H3898H5186H3027H2389H2220H639H2534H1419H71106And I will smite the inhabitants of this city, both man and beast: they shall die of a great pestilence.H5221H3427H5892H120H929H4191H1419H16987And afterward, saith the LORD, I will deliver Zedekiah king of Judah, and his servants, and the people, and such as are left in this city from the pestilence, from the sword, and from the famine, into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, and into the hand of their enemies, and into the hand of those that seek their life: and he shall smite them with the edge of the sword; he shall not spare them, neither have pity, nor have mercy.H310H5002H3068H5414H6667H4428H3063H5650H5971H7604H5892H1698H2719H7458H3027H5019H4428H894H3027H341H3027H1245H5315H5221H6310H2719H2347H2550H73558And unto this people thou shalt say, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the way of death.H5971H559H559H3068H5414H6440H1870H2416H1870H41949He that abideth in this city shall die by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence: but he that goeth out, and falleth to the Chaldeans that besiege you, he shall live, and his life shall be unto him for a prey.H3427H5892H4191H2719H7458H1698H3318H5307H3778H6696H2421H2421H5315H799810For I have set my face against this city for evil, and not for good, saith the LORD: it shall be given into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall burn it with fire.H7760H6440H5892H7451H2896H5002H3068H5414H3027H4428H894H8313H784
Message to the House of David
11And touching the house of the king of Judah, say, Hear ye the word of the LORD;H1004H4428H3063H8085H1697H306812O house of David, thus saith the LORD; Execute judgment in the morning, and deliver him that is spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor, lest my fury go out like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings.H1004H1732H559H3068H1777H4941H1242H5337H1497H3027H6231H2534H3318H784H1197H3518H6440H7455H461113Behold, I am against thee, O inhabitant of the valley, and rock of the plain, saith the LORD; which say, Who shall come down against us? or who shall enter into our habitations?H3427H6010H6697H4334H5002H3068H559H5181H935H458514But I will punish you according to the fruit of your doings, saith the LORD: and I will kindle a fire in the forest thereof, and it shall devour all things round about it.H6485H6529H4611H5002H3068H3341H784H3293H398H5439
