Jeremiah 22
English Standard Version
22Thus says the LORD: "Go down to the house of the king of Judah and speak there this word,H559H3068H3381H1004H4428H3063H1696H1697 2and say, 'Hear the word of the LORD, O king of Judah, who sits on the throne of David, you, and your servants, and your people who enter these gates.H559H8085H1697H3068H4428H3063H3427H3678H1732H5650H5971H935H8179 3Thus says the LORD: Do justice and righteousness, and deliver from the hand of the oppressor him who has been robbed. And do no wrong or violence to the resident alien, the fatherless, and the widow, nor shed innocent blood in this place.H559H3068H6213H4941H6666H5337H1497H3027H6216H3238H2554H1616H3490H490H8210H5355H1818H4725 4For if you will indeed obey this word, then there shall enter the gates of this house kings who sit on the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, they and their servants and their people.H6213H1697H6213H935H8179H1004H4428H3427H3678H1732H7392H7393H5483H5650H5971 5But if you will not obey these words, I swear by myself, declares the LORD, that this house shall become a desolation.H8085H1697H7650H5002H3068H1004H2723 6For thus says the LORD concerning the house of the king of Judah: "'You are like Gilead to me, like the summit of Lebanon, yet surely I will make you a desert, an uninhabited city.H559H3068H4428H1004H3063H1568H7218H3844H7896H4057H5892H3427H3427 7I will prepare destroyers against you, each with his weapons, and they shall cut down your choicest cedars and cast them into the fire.H6942H7843H376H3627H3772H4005H730H5307H784 8"'And many nations will pass by this city, and every man will say to his neighbor, "Why has the LORD dealt thus with this great city?"H7227H1471H5674H5892H559H376H7453H3068H6213H1419H5892 9And they will answer, "Because they have forsaken the covenant of the LORD their God and worshiped other gods and served them."'"H559H5800H1285H3068H430H7812H312H430H5647 10Weep not for him who is dead, nor grieve for him, but weep bitterly for him who goes away, for he shall return no more to see his native land.H1058H4191H5110H1058H1058H1980H7725H7200H4138H776 11For thus says the LORD concerning Shallum the son of Josiah, king of Judah, who reigned instead of Josiah his father, and who went away from this place: "He shall return here no more,H559H3068H413H7967H1121H2977H4428H3063H4427H2977H1H3318H4725H7725 12but in the place where they have carried him captive, there shall he die, and he shall never see this land again."H4191H4725H1540H7200H776 13"Woe to him who builds his house by unrighteousness, and his upper rooms by injustice, who makes his neighbor serve him for nothing and does not give him his wages,H1945H1129H1004H3808H6664H5944H4941H7453H5647H2600H5414H6467 14who says, 'I will build myself a great house with spacious upper rooms,' who cuts out windows for it, paneling it with cedar and painting it with vermilion.H559H1129H4060H1004H7304H5944H7167H2474H5603H730H4886H8350 15Do you think you are a king because you compete in cedar? Did not your father eat and drink and do justice and righteousness? Then it was well with him.H4427H8474H730H1H398H8354H6213H4941H6666H2896 16He judged the cause of the poor and needy; then it was well. Is not this to know me? declares the LORD.H1777H1779H6041H34H2896H1847H5002H3068 17But you have eyes and heart only for your dishonest gain, for shedding innocent blood, and for practicing oppression and violence."H5869H3820H1215H8210H5355H1818H6233H4835H6213 18Therefore thus says the LORD concerning Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah: "They shall not lament for him, saying, 'Ah, my brother!' or 'Ah, sister!' They shall not lament for him, saying, 'Ah, lord!' or 'Ah, his majesty!'H559H3068H3079H1121H2977H4428H3063H5594H1945H251H1945H269H5594H1945H113H1945H1935 19With the burial of a donkey he shall be buried, dragged and dumped beyond the gates of Jerusalem."H6912H6900H2543H5498H7993H1973H8179H3389 20"Go up to Lebanon, and cry out, and lift up your voice in Bashan; cry out from Abarim, for all your lovers are destroyed.H5927H3844H6817H5414H6963H1316H6817H5676H157H7665 21I spoke to you in your prosperity, but you said, 'I will not listen.' This has been your way from your youth, that you have not obeyed my voice.H1696H7962H559H8085H1870H5271H8085H6963 22The wind shall shepherd all your shepherds, and your lovers shall go into captivity; then you will be ashamed and confounded because of all your evil.H7307H7462H7462H157H3212H7628H954H3637H7451 23O inhabitant of Lebanon, nested among the cedars, how you will be pitied when pangs come upon you, pain as of a woman in labor!"H3427H3844H7077H730H2603H2256H935H2427H3205 24"As I live, declares the LORD, though Coniah the son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, were the signet ring on my right hand, yet I would tear you offH2416H5002H3068H3659H1121H3079H4428H3063H2368H3225H3027H5423 25and give you into the hand of those who seek your life, into the hand of those of whom you are afraid, even into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and into the hand of the Chaldeans.H5414H3027H1245H5315H3027H6440H3016H3027H5019H4428H894H3027H3778 26I will hurl you and the mother who bore you into another country, where you were not born, and there you shall die.H2904H517H3205H312H776H3205H4191 27But to the land to which they will long to return, there they shall not return."H776H5375H5315H7725H7725 28Is this man Coniah a despised, broken pot, a vessel no one cares for? Why are he and his children hurled and cast into a land that they do not know?H376H3659H959H5310H6089H3627H2656H7993H2233H2904H776H3045 29O land, land, land, hear the word of the LORD!H776H776H776H8085H1697H3068 30Thus says the LORD: "Write this man down as childless, a man who shall not succeed in his days, for none of his offspring shall succeed in sitting on the throne of David and ruling again in Judah."H559H3068H3789H376H6185H1397H6743H3117H376H2233H6743H3427H3678H1732H4910H3063
