Jeremiah 22
International Standard Version
22This is what the Lord says: "Go down to the house of the king of Judah and tell him this:H559H3068H3381H1004H4428H3063H1696H1697 2'Listen to the word of the Lord, king of Judah, you who sit on the throne of David—you, your officials, and your people who enter these gates.H559H8085H1697H3068H4428H3063H3427H3678H1732H5650H5971H935H8179 3This is what the Lord says: "Uphold justice and righteousness. Deliver from their oppressor those who have been robbed. Don't mistreat or do violence to the alien, the orphan, or the widow, or shed the blood of innocent people in this place.H559H3068H6213H4941H6666H5337H1497H3027H6216H3238H2554H1616H3490H490H8210H5355H1818H4725 4Rather, carefully obey this word, and then kings sitting for David on his throne and riding in chariots and on horses will enter the gates of this house. The king will enter along with his officials and his people.H6213H1697H6213H935H8179H1004H4428H3427H3678H1732H7392H7393H5483H5650H5971 5But if you don't listen to these words, I swear," declares the Lord, "that this house will become a ruin."'"H8085H1697H7650H5002H3068H1004H2723 6For this is what the Lord says about the house of the king of Judah, "You are like Gilead to me, like the summit of Lebanon. Yet I'll surely make you a desert, towns where no one lives.H559H3068H4428H1004H3063H1568H7218H3844H7896H4057H5892H3427H3427 7I'll appoint people to destroy you, men with their weapons. They'll cut down some of your choice cedars and throw them into the fire.H6942H7843H376H3627H3772H4005H730H5307H784 8"Many nations will pass by this city and say to one another, 'Why did the Lord do this to this great city?H7227H1471H5674H5892H559H376H7453H3068H6213H1419H5892 9Then people will respond, 'It is because they have forsaken the covenant of the Lord their God and have bowed down to other gods and served them.'H559H5800H1285H3068H430H7812H312H430H5647 10"Don't cry for the dead or grieve for them. Weep bitterly for the one going away, because he won't return again nor see the land of his birth.H1058H4191H5110H1058H1058H1980H7725H7200H4138H776 11"For this is what the Lord says about Josiah's son Shallum, king of Judah, who reigned in place of his father Josiah: 'He went out from this place and won't return to it again.H559H3068H413H7967H1121H2977H4428H3063H4427H2977H1H3318H4725H7725 12He will die in the place where they exiled him, and he won't ever see this land again.'"H4191H4725H1540H7200H776 13"How terrible for him who builds his house without righteousness, and its upper rooms without justice, who makes his neighbor work for nothing, and does not pay him his wage.H1945H1129H1004H3808H6664H5944H4941H7453H5647H2600H5414H6467 14"How terrible for him who says, 'I'll build a large house for myself with spacious upper rooms, who cuts out windows for it, paneling it with cedar and painting it red.'H559H1129H4060H1004H7304H5944H7167H2474H5603H730H4886H8350 15"Are you a king because you try to outdo everyone with cedar?Your father ate and drank and upheld justice and righteousness, did he not?And then it went well for him.H4427H8474H730H1H398H8354H6213H4941H6666H2896 16He judged the case of the poor and needy. And then it went well for him. Isn't this what it means to know me -H1777H1779H6041H34H2896H1847H5002H3068 17But your eyes and heart are on nothing but your dishonest gain, shedding the blood of innocent people, and practicing oppression and extortion.H5869H3820H1215H8210H5355H1818H6233H4835H6213 18Therefore, this is what the Lord says about Josiah's son Jehoiakim, king of Judah, "They won't lament for him with these words: 'How terrible, my brother, How terrible, my sister!' They won't lament for him with these words: 'How terrible, lord, How terrible, your majesty!'H559H3068H3079H1121H2977H4428H3063H5594H1945H251H1945H269H5594H1945H113H1945H1935 19"He will receive a donkey's burial, dragged out and thrown outside the gates of Jerusalem."H6912H6900H2543H5498H7993H1973H8179H3389 20Go up to Lebanon and cry out, to Bashan and lift up your voice. Cry out from Abarim, for all your lovers have been crushed.H5927H3844H6817H5414H6963H1316H6817H5676H157H7665 21I spoke to you when you were secure, but you said, "I won't listen!" This has been your way since your youth, for you haven't obeyed me.H1696H7962H559H8085H1870H5271H8085H6963 22The wind will shepherd all your shepherds, and your lovers will go into exile. Indeed, you will then be ashamed and humiliated because of all your wickedness.H7307H7462H7462H157H3212H7628H954H3637H7451 23You who live in Lebanon, who build your nest in the cedars, how you will groan when pains come upon you, pain like that of a woman giving birth.H3427H3844H7077H730H2603H2256H935H2427H3205 24"As certainly as I'm alive and living," declares the Lord, "even if Jehoiakim's son King Jehoiachin of Judah were a signet ring on my right hand, I would pull you offH2416H5002H3068H3659H1121H3079H4428H3063H2368H3225H3027H5423 25and give you to those who are trying to kill you, whom you fear—that is, to King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon and the Chaldeans.H5414H3027H1245H5315H3027H6440H3016H3027H5019H4428H894H3027H3778 26I'll hurl you and the mother who gave birth to you into another land where you were not born, and there you will die.H2904H517H3205H312H776H3205H4191 27As for the land to which you want to return, you won't return there!H776H5375H5315H7725H7725 28"Is this man Jehoiachin a despised and shattered jar, a vessel no one wants?Why were he and his descendants hurled away, thrown into a land that they didn't know -H376H3659H959H5310H6089H3627H2656H7993H2233H2904H776H3045 29Land, land, land, listen to the word of the Lord!H776H776H776H8085H1697H3068 30This is what the Lord says: 'Write this man off as childless, a man who does not prosper in his lifetime. None of his descendants shall succeed in sitting on the throne of David, or ever ruling in Judah again.'"H559H3068H3789H376H6185H1397H6743H3117H376H2233H6743H3427H3678H1732H4910H3063
