Prophecy of the Captivity

25THE WORD that came to Jeremiah concerning all the people of Judah in the fourth year of the reign of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah--which was the first year of the reign of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon--H1697H3414H5971H3063H7243H8141H3079H1121H2977H4428H3063H7224H8141H5019H4428H894 2Which Jeremiah the prophet spoke to all the people of Judah and to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem:H3414H5030H1696H5971H3063H3427H3389H559 3For these twenty-three years--from the thirteenth year of Josiah son of Amon king of Judah, even to this day--the word of the Lord has come to me and I have spoken to you persistently early and late, but you have not listened {and} obeyed.H7969H6240H8141H2977H1121H526H4428H3063H3117H7969H6242H8141H1697H3068H1696H7925H1696H8085 4Although the Lord persistently sent you all the prophets, His servants, yet you have not listened and obeyed or [even] inclined your ear to hear.H3068H7971H5650H5030H7925H7971H8085H5186H241H8085 5[The prophets came on My behalf] saying, Turn again now every one from his evil way and wrongdoing; [that you may not forfeit the right to] dwell in the land that the Lord gave to you and to your fathers from of old {and} forevermore.H559H7725H376H7451H1870H7455H4611H3427H127H3068H5414H1H5704H5769H5769 6Do not go after other gods to serve and worship them, and do not provoke Me to anger with the works of your hands. Then I will do you no harm.H3212H310H312H430H5647H7812H3707H4639H3027H7489 7Yet you have not listened to {and} obeyed Me, says the Lord, that you might provoke Me to anger with the works (idols) made by your hands to your own hurt.H8085H5002H3068H3707H4639H3027H7451 8Therefore thus says the Lord of hosts: Because you have not heard {and} obeyed My words,H559H3068H6635H8085H1697 9Behold, I will send for all the tribes of the north, says the Lord, and I will send for Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, My servant [or agent to fulfill My designs], and I will bring them against this land and its inhabitants and against all these nations round about; and I will devote them [to God] {and} utterly destroy them and make them an amazement, a hissing, and perpetual {and} agelong desolations.H7971H3947H4940H6828H5002H3068H5019H4428H894H5650H935H776H3427H1471H5439H2763H7760H8047H8322H5769H2723 10Moreover, I will take from them the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones [grinding out the meal] and the light of the candle [which every home burned throughout the night].H6H6963H8342H6963H8057H6963H2860H6963H3618H6963H7347H216H5216 11And this whole land shall be a waste and an astonishment, and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.H776H2723H8047H1471H5647H4428H894H7657H8141

Babylon Will Be Judged

12Then when seventy years are completed, I will punish the king of Babylon and that nation, the land of the Chaldeans, says the Lord, for their iniquity, and will make the land [of the Chaldeans] a perpetual waste.H7657H8141H4390H6485H4428H894H1471H5002H3068H5771H776H3778H7760H5769H8077 13And I will bring upon that land all My words which I have pronounced against it, even all that is written in this book, which Jeremiah has prophesied against all the nations.H935H776H1697H1696H3789H5612H3414H5012H1471 14For many nations and great kings shall make bondmen of them, even them [the Chaldeans who enslaved other nations]; and I will recompense [all of] them according to their deeds and according to the work of their [own] hands.H7227H1471H1419H4428H5647H7999H6467H4639H3027 15For thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, to me: Take this cup of the wine of wrath from My hand and cause all the nations to whom I send you to drink it.H559H3068H430H3478H3947H3196H3563H2534H3027H1471H7971H8248 16They shall drink and reel to and fro and be crazed because of the sword that I will send among them.H8354H1607H1984H6440H2719H7971 17Then I [Jeremiah] took the cup from the Lord's hand and made all the nations drink it to whom the Lord had sent me: [that is,]H3947H3563H3068H3027H1471H8248H3068H7971 18Jerusalem and the cities of Judah [being most guilty because their privileges were greatest], its kings and princes, to make them a desolation, an astonishment, a hissing, and a curse, as it is to this day;H3389H5892H3063H4428H8269H5414H2723H8047H8322H7045H3117 19Pharaoh king of Egypt, his servants, his princes, all his people,H6547H4428H4714H5650H8269H5971 20And all the mixed foreign population; all the kings of the land of Uz; and all the kings of the land of the Philistines and [their cities of] Ashkelon, Gaza, Ekron, and the remnant of Ashdod;H6153H4428H776H5780H4428H776H6430H831H5804H6138H7611H795 21Edom, Moab, and the children of Ammon;H123H4124H1121H5983 22All the kings of Tyre, all the kings of Sidon, and the kings of the islands {and} the coastlands across the [Mediterranean] Sea;H4428H6865H4428H6721H4428H339H5676H3220 23Dedan, Tema, Buz [neighboring tribes north of Arabia], and all who clip off the corners of their hair {and} beards;H1719H8485H938H7112H6285 24All the kings of Arabia and all the kings of the mixed foreign people who dwell in the desert;H4428H6152H4428H6153H7931H4057 25All the kings of Zimri, all the kings of Elam (Persia), and all the kings of Media;H4428H2174H4428H5867H4428H4074 26All the kings of the north, far and near, one after another--and all the kingdoms of the world which are on the face of the earth. And after them the king of Sheshach (Babel or Babylon) shall drink.H4428H6828H7350H7138H376H251H4467H776H6440H127H4428H8347H8354H310 27Then you shall say to them, Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Drink, be drunk, vomit, and fall to rise no more because of the sword which I am sending among you.H559H559H3068H6635H430H3478H8354H7937H7006H5307H6965H6440H2719H7971 28And if they refuse to take the cup from your hand to drink, then you shall say to them, Thus says the Lord of hosts: You shall surely drink!H3985H3947H3563H3027H8354H559H559H3068H6635H8354H8354 29For behold, I am beginning to work evil in the city which is called by My Name, and shall you go unpunished? You shall not go unpunished, for I am calling for a sword against all the inhabitants of the earth, says the Lord of hosts.H2490H7489H5892H7121H8034H5352H5352H5352H7121H2719H3427H776H5002H3068H6635 30Therefore prophesy against them all these words and say to them: The Lord shall roar from on high and utter His voice from His holy habitation; He shall roar mightily against His fold {and} pasture. He shall give a shout like those who tread grapes [in the winepress, but His shout will be] against all the inhabitants of the earth.H5012H1697H559H3068H7580H4791H5414H6963H6944H4583H7580H7580H5116H6030H1959H1869H3427H776 31A noise will come even to the ends of the earth, for the Lord has a controversy and an indictment against the nations; He will enter into judgment with all mankind; as for the wicked, He will give them to the sword, says the Lord.H7588H935H7097H776H3068H7379H1471H8199H1320H5414H7563H2719H5002H3068 32Thus says the Lord of hosts: Behold, evil will go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirling tempest will rise from the uttermost parts of the earth.H559H3068H6635H7451H3318H1471H1471H1419H5591H5782H3411H776 33And those slain by the Lord shall be at that day from one end of the earth even to the other end of the earth. They shall not be lamented or gathered or buried; their [dead bodies] shall be dung upon the ground.H2491H3068H3117H7097H776H7097H776H5594H622H6912H1828H6440H127 34Wail, you shepherds, and cry; and roll in ashes, you principal ones of the flock. For the days of your slaughter and of your dispersions have fully come, and you shall fall {and} be dashed into pieces like a choice vessel.H3213H7462H2199H6428H117H6629H3117H2873H8600H4390H5307H2532H3627 35And the shepherds shall have no way to flee, nor the principal ones of the flock any means of escape.H7462H4498H6H117H6629H6413 36A voice! The cry of the shepherds and the wailing of the principal ones of the flock! For the Lord is laying waste {and} destroying their pasture.H6963H6818H7462H3215H117H6629H3068H7703H4830 37And the peaceable folds are devastated {and} brought to silence because of the fierce anger of the Lord.H7965H4999H1826H6440H2740H639H3068 38He has left His shelter like the lion; for their land has become a waste {and} an astonishment because of the fierceness of the oppressor and because of [the Lord's] fierce anger.H5800H5520H3715H776H8047H6440H2740H3238H6440H2740H639
