Prophecies Against the Kings of Judah

22Thus says the LORD: "Go down to the house of the king of Judah, and there speak this word,H559H3068H3381H1004H4428H3063H1696H1697 2"and say, 'Hear the word of the LORD, O king of Judah, you who sit on the throne of David, you and your servants and your people who enter these gates!H559H8085H1697H3068H4428H3063H3427H3678H1732H5650H5971H935H8179 3'Thus says the LORD: "Execute judgment and righteousness, and deliver the plundered out of the hand of the oppressor. Do no wrong and do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, or the widow, nor shed innocent blood in this place.H559H3068H6213H4941H6666H5337H1497H3027H6216H3238H2554H1616H3490H490H8210H5355H1818H4725 4"For if you indeed do this thing, then shall enter the gates of this house, riding on horses and in chariots, accompanied by servants and people, kings who sit on the throne of David.H6213H1697H6213H935H8179H1004H4428H3427H3678H1732H7392H7393H5483H5650H5971 5"But if you will not hear these words, I swear by Myself," says the LORD, "that this house shall become a desolation."'"H8085H1697H7650H5002H3068H1004H2723 6For thus says the LORD to the house of the king of Judah: "You are Gilead to Me, The head of Lebanon; Yet I surely will make you a wilderness, Cities which are not inhabited.H559H3068H4428H1004H3063H1568H7218H3844H7896H4057H5892H3427H3427 7I will prepare destroyers against you, Everyone with his weapons; They shall cut down your choice cedars And cast them into the fire.H6942H7843H376H3627H3772H4005H730H5307H784 8"And many nations will pass by this city; and everyone will say to his neighbor, 'Why has the LORD done so to this great city?'H7227H1471H5674H5892H559H376H7453H3068H6213H1419H5892 9"Then 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 the dead, nor bemoan him; Weep bitterly for him who goes away, For he shall return no more, Nor see his native country.H1058H4191H5110H1058H1058H1980H7725H7200H4138H776

Message to the Sons of Josiah

11For thus says the LORD concerning Shallum the son of Josiah, king of Judah, who reigned instead of Josiah his father, who went from this place: "He shall not return here anymore,H559H3068H413H7967H1121H2977H4428H3063H4427H2977H1H3318H4725H7725 12"but he shall die in the place where they have led him captive, and shall see this land no more.H4191H4725H1540H7200H776 13"Woe to him who builds his house by unrighteousness And his chambers by injustice, Who uses his neighbor's service without wages And gives him nothing for his work,H1945H1129H1004H3808H6664H5944H4941H7453H5647H2600H5414H6467 14Who says, 'I will build myself a wide house with spacious chambers, And cut out windows for it, Paneling it with cedar And painting it with vermilion.'H559H1129H4060H1004H7304H5944H7167H2474H5603H730H4886H8350 15"Shall you reign because you enclose yourself 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. Was not this knowing Me?" says the LORD.H1777H1779H6041H34H2896H1847H5002H3068 17"Yet your eyes and your heart are for nothing but your covetousness, For shedding innocent blood, And 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, 'Alas, my brother!' or 'Alas, my sister!' They shall not lament for him, Saying, 'Alas, master!' or 'Alas, his glory!'H559H3068H3079H1121H2977H4428H3063H5594H1945H251H1945H269H5594H1945H113H1945H1935 19He shall be buried with the burial of a donkey, Dragged and cast out beyond the gates of Jerusalem.H6912H6900H2543H5498H7993H1973H8179H3389 20"Go up to Lebanon, and cry out, And lift up your voice in Bashan; Cry from Abarim, For all your lovers are destroyed.H5927H3844H6817H5414H6963H1316H6817H5676H157H7665 21I spoke to you in your prosperity, But you said, 'I will not hear.' This has been your manner from your youth, That you did not obey My voice.H1696H7962H559H8085H1870H5271H8085H6963 22The wind shall eat up all your rulers, And your lovers shall go into captivity; Surely then you will be ashamed and humiliated For all your wickedness.H7307H7462H7462H157H3212H7628H954H3637H7451 23O inhabitant of Lebanon, Making your nest in the cedars, How gracious will you be when pangs come upon you, Like the pain of a woman in labor?H3427H3844H7077H730H2603H2256H935H2427H3205

Message to Coniah

24"As I live," says the LORD, "though Coniah the son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, were the signet on My right hand, yet I would pluck you off;H2416H5002H3068H3659H1121H3079H4428H3063H2368H3225H3027H5423 25"and I will give you into the hand of those who seek your life, and into the hand of those whose face you fear—the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and the hand of the Chaldeans.H5414H3027H1245H5315H3027H6440H3016H3027H5019H4428H894H3027H3778 26"So I will cast you out, and your mother who bore you, into another country where you were not born; and there you shall die.H2904H517H3205H312H776H3205H4191 27"But to the land to which they desire to return, there they shall not return.H776H5375H5315H7725H7725 28"Is this man Coniah a despised, broken idol—A vessel in which is no pleasure? Why are they cast out, he and his descendants, And cast into a land which they do not know?H376H3659H959H5310H6089H3627H2656H7993H2233H2904H776H3045 29O earth, earth, earth, Hear the word of the LORD!H776H776H776H8085H1697H3068 30Thus says the LORD: 'Write this man down as childless, A man who shall not prosper in his days; For none of his descendants shall prosper, Sitting on the throne of David, And ruling anymore in Judah.'"H559H3068H3789H376H6185H1397H6743H3117H376H2233H6743H3427H3678H1732H4910H3063
