New International Version (1984)

Seventy Years of Captivity

25The word came to Jeremiah concerning all the people of Judah in the fourth year of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah, which was the first year of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon.H1697H3414H5971H3063H7243H8141H3079H1121H2977H4428H3063H7224H8141H5019H4428H894 2So Jeremiah the prophet said to all the people of Judah and to all those living in Jerusalem:H3414H5030H1696H5971H3063H3427H3389H559 3For twenty-three years--from the thirteenth year of Josiah son of Amon king of Judah until this very day--the word of the LORD has come to me and I have spoken to you again and again, but you have not listened.H7969H6240H8141H2977H1121H526H4428H3063H3117H7969H6242H8141H1697H3068H1696H7925H1696H8085 4And though the LORD has sent all his servants the prophets to you again and again, you have not listened or paid any attention.H3068H7971H5650H5030H7925H7971H8085H5186H241H8085 5They said, "Turn now, each of you, from your evil ways and your evil practices, and you can stay in the land the LORD gave to you and your fathers for ever and ever.H559H7725H376H7451H1870H7455H4611H3427H127H3068H5414H1H5704H5769H5769 6Do not follow other gods to serve and worship them; do not provoke me to anger with what your hands have made. Then I will not harm you."H3212H310H312H430H5647H7812H3707H4639H3027H7489 7"But you did not listen to me," declares the LORD, "and you have provoked me with what your hands have made, and you have brought harm to yourselves."H8085H5002H3068H3707H4639H3027H7451 8Therefore the LORD Almighty says this: "Because you have not listened to my words,H559H3068H6635H8085H1697 9I will summon all the peoples of the north and my servant Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon," declares the LORD, "and I will bring them against this land and its inhabitants and against all the surrounding nations. I will completely destroy them and make them an object of horror and scorn, and an everlasting ruin.H7971H3947H4940H6828H5002H3068H5019H4428H894H5650H935H776H3427H1471H5439H2763H7760H8047H8322H5769H2723 10I will banish from them the sounds of joy and gladness, the voices of bride and bridegroom, the sound of millstones and the light of the lamp.H6H6963H8342H6963H8057H6963H2860H6963H3618H6963H7347H216H5216 11This whole country will become a desolate wasteland, and these nations will serve the king of Babylon seventy years.H776H2723H8047H1471H5647H4428H894H7657H8141 12"But when the seventy years are fulfilled, I will punish the king of Babylon and his nation, the land of the Babylonians, for their guilt," declares the LORD, "and will make it desolate forever.H7657H8141H4390H6485H4428H894H1471H5002H3068H5771H776H3778H7760H5769H8077 13I will bring upon that land all the things I have spoken against it, all that are written in this book and prophesied by Jeremiah against all the nations.H935H776H1697H1696H3789H5612H3414H5012H1471 14They themselves will be enslaved by many nations and great kings; I will repay them according to their deeds and the work of their hands."H7227H1471H1419H4428H5647H7999H6467H4639H3027

The Cup of God’s Wrath

15This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, said to me: "Take from my hand this cup filled with the wine of my wrath and make all the nations to whom I send you drink it.H559H3068H430H3478H3947H3196H3563H2534H3027H1471H7971H8248 16When they drink it, they will stagger and go mad because of the sword I will send among them."H8354H1607H1984H6440H2719H7971 17So I took the cup from the LORD'S hand and made all the nations to whom he sent me drink it:H3947H3563H3068H3027H1471H8248H3068H7971 18Jerusalem and the towns of Judah, its kings and officials, to make them a ruin and an object of horror and scorn and cursing, as they are today;H3389H5892H3063H4428H8269H5414H2723H8047H8322H7045H3117 19Pharaoh king of Egypt, his attendants, his officials and all his people,H6547H4428H4714H5650H8269H5971 20and all the foreign people there; all the kings of Uz; all the kings of the Philistines (those of Ashkelon, Gaza, Ekron, and the people left at Ashdod);H6153H4428H776H5780H4428H776H6430H831H5804H6138H7611H795 21Edom, Moab and Ammon;H123H4124H1121H5983 22all the kings of Tyre and Sidon; the kings of the coastlands across the sea;H4428H6865H4428H6721H4428H339H5676H3220 23Dedan, Tema, Buz and all who are in distant places;H1719H8485H938H7112H6285 24all the kings of Arabia and all the kings of the foreign people who live in the desert;H4428H6152H4428H6153H7931H4057 25all the kings of Zimri, Elam and Media;H4428H2174H4428H5867H4428H4074 26and all the kings of the north, near and far, one after the other--all the kingdoms on the face of the earth. And after all of them, the king of Sheshach will drink it too.H4428H6828H7350H7138H376H251H4467H776H6440H127H4428H8347H8354H310 27"Then tell them, 'This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Drink, get drunk and vomit, and fall to rise no more because of the sword I will send among you.'H559H559H3068H6635H430H3478H8354H7937H7006H5307H6965H6440H2719H7971 28But if they refuse to take the cup from your hand and drink, tell them, 'This is what the LORD Almighty says: You must drink it!H3985H3947H3563H3027H8354H559H559H3068H6635H8354H8354 29See, I am beginning to bring disaster on the city that bears my Name, and will you indeed go unpunished? You will not go unpunished, for I am calling down a sword upon all who live on the earth, declares the LORD Almighty.'H2490H7489H5892H7121H8034H5352H5352H5352H7121H2719H3427H776H5002H3068H6635 30"Now prophesy all these words against them and say to them: "'The LORD will roar from on high; he will thunder from his holy dwelling and roar mightily against his land. He will shout like those who tread the grapes, shout against all who live on the earth.H5012H1697H559H3068H7580H4791H5414H6963H6944H4583H7580H7580H5116H6030H1959H1869H3427H776 31The tumult will resound to the ends of the earth, for the LORD will bring charges against the nations; he will bring judgment on all mankind and put the wicked to the sword,'" declares the LORD.H7588H935H7097H776H3068H7379H1471H8199H1320H5414H7563H2719H5002H3068 32This is what the LORD Almighty says: "Look! Disaster is spreading from nation to nation; a mighty storm is rising from the ends of the earth."H559H3068H6635H7451H3318H1471H1471H1419H5591H5782H3411H776 33At that time those slain by the LORD will be everywhere--from one end of the earth to the other. They will not be mourned or gathered up or buried, but will be like refuse lying on the ground.H2491H3068H3117H7097H776H7097H776H5594H622H6912H1828H6440H127 34Weep and wail, you shepherds; roll in the dust, you leaders of the flock. For your time to be slaughtered has come; you will fall and be shattered like fine pottery.H3213H7462H2199H6428H117H6629H3117H2873H8600H4390H5307H2532H3627 35The shepherds will have nowhere to flee, the leaders of the flock no place to escape.H7462H4498H6H117H6629H6413 36Hear the cry of the shepherds, the wailing of the leaders of the flock, for the LORD is destroying their pasture.H6963H6818H7462H3215H117H6629H3068H7703H4830 37The peaceful meadows will be laid waste because of the fierce anger of the LORD.H7965H4999H1826H6440H2740H639H3068 38Like a lion he will leave his lair, and their land will become desolate because of the sword of the oppressor and because of the LORD'S fierce anger.H5800H5520H3715H776H8047H6440H2740H3238H6440H2740H639
