New American Standard Bible
22Thus says the LORD, "Go down to the house of the king of Judah, and there speak this word,H559H3068H3381H1004H4428H3063H1696H1697 2and say, 'Hear the word of the LORD, O king of Judah, who sits on David's throne, you and your servants and your people who enter these gates.H559H8085H1697H3068H4428H3063H3427H3678H1732H5650H5971H935H8179 3'Thus says the LORD, "Do justice and righteousness, and deliver the one who has been robbed from the power of [his] oppressor. Also do not mistreat [or] do violence to the stranger, the orphan, or the widow; and do not shed innocent blood in this place.H559H3068H6213H4941H6666H5337H1497H3027H6216H3238H2554H1616H3490H490H8210H5355H1818H4725 4"For if you men will indeed perform this thing, then kings will enter the gates of this house, sitting in David's place on his throne, riding in chariots and on horses, [even the king] himself and his servants and his people.H6213H1697H6213H935H8179H1004H4428H3427H3678H1732H7392H7393H5483H5650H5971 5"But if you will not obey these words, I swear by Myself," declares the LORD, "that this house will 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 most assuredly I shall make you like a wilderness, [Like] cities which are not inhabited.H559H3068H4428H1004H3063H1568H7218H3844H7896H4057H5892H3427H3427 7"For I shall set apart destroyers against you, Each with his weapons; And they will cut down your choicest cedars And throw [them] on the fire.H6942H7843H376H3627H3772H4005H730H5307H784 8"And many nations will pass by this city; and they will say to one another, 'Why has the LORD done thus to this great city?'H7227H1471H5674H5892H559H376H7453H3068H6213H1419H5892 9"Then they will answer, 'Because they forsook the covenant of the LORD their God and bowed down to other gods and served them.'"H559H5800H1285H3068H430H7812H312H430H5647 10Do not weep for the dead or mourn for him, [But] weep continually for the one who goes away; For he will never return Or see his native land.H1058H4191H5110H1058H1058H1980H7725H7200H4138H776 11For thus says the LORD in regard to Shallum the son of Josiah, king of Judah, who became king in the place of Josiah his father, who went forth from this place, "He will never return there;H559H3068H413H7967H1121H2977H4428H3063H4427H2977H1H3318H4725H7725 12but in the place where they led him captive, there he will die and not see this land again.H4191H4725H1540H7200H776 13"Woe to him who builds his house without righteousness And his upper rooms without justice, Who uses his neighbor's services without pay And does not give him his wages,H1945H1129H1004H3808H6664H5944H4941H7453H5647H2600H5414H6467 14Who says, 'I will build myself a roomy house With spacious upper rooms, And cut out its windows, Paneling [it] with cedar and painting [it] bright red.'H559H1129H4060H1004H7304H5944H7167H2474H5603H730H4886H8350 15"Do you become a king because you are competing in cedar? Did not your father eat and drink, And do justice and righteousness? Then it was well with him.H4427H8474H730H1H398H8354H6213H4941H6666H2896 16"He pled the cause of the afflicted and needy; Then it was well. Is not that what it means to know Me?" Declares the LORD.H1777H1779H6041H34H2896H1847H5002H3068 17"But your eyes and your heart Are [intent] only upon your own dishonest gain, And on shedding innocent blood And on practicing oppression and extortion."H5869H3820H1215H8210H5355H1818H6233H4835H6213 18Therefore thus says the LORD in regard to Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, "They will not lament for him: 'Alas, my brother!' or, 'Alas, sister!' They will not lament for him: 'Alas for the master!' or, ' Alas for his splendor! 'H559H3068H3079H1121H2977H4428H3063H5594H1945H251H1945H269H5594H1945H113H1945H1935 19"He will be buried with a donkey's burial, Dragged off and thrown out beyond the gates of Jerusalem.H6912H6900H2543H5498H7993H1973H8179H3389 20"Go up to Lebanon and cry out, And lift up your voice in Bashan; Cry out also from Abarim, For all your lovers have been crushed.H5927H3844H6817H5414H6963H1316H6817H5676H157H7665 21"I spoke to you in your prosperity; But you said, 'I will not listen!' This has been your practice from your youth, That you have not obeyed My voice.H1696H7962H559H8085H1870H5271H8085H6963 22"The wind will sweep away all your shepherds, And your lovers will go into captivity; Then you will surely be ashamed and humiliated Because of all your wickedness.H7307H7462H7462H157H3212H7628H954H3637H7451 23"You who dwell in Lebanon, Nested in the cedars, How you will groan when pangs come upon you, Pain like a woman in childbirth!H3427H3844H7077H730H2603H2256H935H2427H3205 24"As I live," declares the LORD, "even though Coniah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah were a signet [ring] on My right hand, yet I would pull you off;H2416H5002H3068H3659H1121H3079H4428H3063H2368H3225H3027H5423 25and I shall give you over into the hand of those who are seeking your life, yes, into the hand of those whom you dread, even into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and into the hand of the Chaldeans.H5414H3027H1245H5315H3027H6440H3016H3027H5019H4428H894H3027H3778 26"I shall hurl you and your mother who bore you into another country where you were not born, and there you will die.H2904H517H3205H312H776H3205H4191 27"But as for the land to which they desire to return, they will not return to it.H776H5375H5315H7725H7725 28"Is this man Coniah a despised, shattered jar? Or is he an undesirable vessel? Why have he and his descendants been hurled out And cast into a land that they had not known?H376H3659H959H5310H6089H3627H2656H7993H2233H2904H776H3045 29"O land, land, land, Hear the word of the LORD!H776H776H776H8085H1697H3068 30"Thus says the LORD, 'Write this man down childless, A man who will not prosper in his days; For no man of his descendants will prosper Sitting on the throne of David Or ruling again in Judah.'"H559H3068H3789H376H6185H1397H6743H3117H376H2233H6743H3427H3678H1732H4910H3063
