The Enemy from the North

25In the fourth year that Jehoiakim son of Josiah was king of Judah, I received a message from the LORD concerning all the people of Judah. (This was the first year that Nebuchadnezzar was king of Babylonia.)H1697H3414H5971H3063H7243H8141H3079H1121H2977H4428H3063H7224H8141H5019H4428H894 2I said to all the people of Judah and of Jerusalem,H3414H5030H1696H5971H3063H3427H3389H559 3"For twenty-three years, from the thirteenth year that Josiah son of Amon was king of Judah until this very day, the LORD has spoken to me, and I have never failed to tell you what he said. But you have paid no attention.H7969H6240H8141H2977H1121H526H4428H3063H3117H7969H6242H8141H1697H3068H1696H7925H1696H8085 4You would not listen or pay attention, even though the LORD has continued to send you his servants the prophets.H3068H7971H5650H5030H7925H7971H8085H5186H241H8085 5They told you to turn from your wicked way of life and from the evil things you are doing, so that you could go on living in the land that the LORD gave you and your ancestors as a permanent possession.H559H7725H376H7451H1870H7455H4611H3427H127H3068H5414H1H5704H5769H5769 6They told you not to worship and serve other gods and not to make the LORD angry by worshiping the idols you had made. If you had obeyed the LORD, then he would not have punished you.H3212H310H312H430H5647H7812H3707H4639H3027H7489 7But the LORD himself says that you refused to listen to him. Instead, you made him angry with your idols and have brought his punishment on yourselves.H8085H5002H3068H3707H4639H3027H7451 8"So then, because you would not listen to him, the LORD Almighty says,H559H3068H6635H8085H1697 9'I am going to send for all the peoples from the north and for my servant, King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylonia. I am going to bring them to fight against Judah and its inhabitants and against all the neighboring nations. I am going to destroy this nation and its neighbors and leave them in ruins forever, a terrible and shocking sight. I, the LORD, have spoken.H7971H3947H4940H6828H5002H3068H5019H4428H894H5650H935H776H3427H1471H5439H2763H7760H8047H8322H5769H2723 10I will silence their shouts of joy and gladness and the happy sounds of wedding feasts. They will have no oil for their lamps, and there will be no more grain.H6H6963H8342H6963H8057H6963H2860H6963H3618H6963H7347H216H5216 11This whole land will be left in ruins and will be a shocking sight, and the neighboring nations will serve the king of Babylonia for seventy years.H776H2723H8047H1471H5647H4428H894H7657H8141 12After that I will punish Babylonia and its king for their sin. I will destroy that country and leave it in ruins forever.H7657H8141H4390H6485H4428H894H1471H5002H3068H5771H776H3778H7760H5769H8077 13I will punish Babylonia with all the disasters that I threatened to bring on the nations when I spoke through Jeremiah - all the disasters recorded in this book.H935H776H1697H1696H3789H5612H3414H5012H1471 14I will pay the Babylonians back for what they have done, and many nations and great kings will make slaves of them.'

God’s Judgment on the Nations

15The LORD, the God of Israel, said to me, "Here is a wine cup filled with my anger. Take it to all the nations to whom I send you, and make them drink from it.H559H3068H430H3478H3947H3196H3563H2534H3027H1471H7971H8248 16When they drink from it, they will stagger and go out of their minds because of the war I am sending against them."H8354H1607H1984H6440H2719H7971 17So I took the cup from the LORD's hand, gave it to all the nations to whom the LORD had sent me, and made them drink from it.H3947H3563H3068H3027H1471H8248H3068H7971 18Jerusalem and all the towns of Judah, together with its kings and leaders, were made to drink from it, so that they would become a desert, a terrible and shocking sight, and so that people would use their name as a curse - as they still do.H3389H5892H3063H4428H8269H5414H2723H8047H8322H7045H3117 19Here is the list of all the others who had to drink from the cup:H6547H4428H4714H5650H8269H5971 20the king of Egypt, his officials and leaders; all the Egyptians and all the foreigners in Egypt; all the kings of the land of Uz; all the kings of the Philistine cities of Ashkelon, Gaza, Ekron, and what remains of Ashdod;H6153H4428H776H5780H4428H776H6430H831H5804H6138H7611H795 21all the people of Edom, Moab, and Ammon;H123H4124H1121H5983 22all the kings of Tyre and Sidon; all the kings of the Mediterranean lands;H4428H6865H4428H6721H4428H339H5676H3220 23the cities of Dedan, Tema, and Buz; all the people who cut their hair short;H1719H8485H938H7112H6285 24all the kings of Arabia; all the kings of the desert tribes;H4428H6152H4428H6153H7931H4057 25all the kings of Zimri, Elam, and Media;H4428H2174H4428H5867H4428H4074 26all the kings of the north, far and near, one after another. Every nation on the face of the earth had to drink from it. Last of all, the king of Babylonia will drink from it.H4428H6828H7350H7138H376H251H4467H776H6440H127H4428H8347H8354H310 27Then the LORD said to me, "Tell the people that I, the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, am commanding them to drink until they are drunk and vomit, until they fall down and cannot get up, because of the war that I am sending against them.H559H559H3068H6635H430H3478H8354H7937H7006H5307H6965H6440H2719H7971 28And if they refuse to take the cup from your hand and drink from it, then tell them that the LORD Almighty has said that they will still have to drink from it.H3985H3947H3563H3027H8354H559H559H3068H6635H8354H8354 29I will begin my work of destruction in my own city. Do they think they will go unpunished? No, they will be punished, for I am going to send war on all the people on earth. I, the LORD Almighty, have spoken.H2490H7489H5892H7121H8034H5352H5352H5352H7121H2719H3427H776H5002H3068H6635 30"You, Jeremiah, must proclaim everything I have said. You must tell these people, 'The LORD will roar from heaven and thunder from the heights of heaven. He will roar against his people; he will shout like a man treading grapes. Everyone on earth will hear him,H5012H1697H559H3068H7580H4791H5414H6963H6944H4583H7580H7580H5116H6030H1959H1869H3427H776 31and the sound will echo to the ends of the earth. The LORD has a case against the nations. He will bring all people to trial and put the wicked to death. The LORD has spoken.' "H7588H935H7097H776H3068H7379H1471H8199H1320H5414H7563H2719H5002H3068 32The LORD Almighty says that disaster is coming on one nation after another, and a great storm is gathering at the far ends of the earth.H559H3068H6635H7451H3318H1471H1471H1419H5591H5782H3411H776 33On that day the bodies of those whom the LORD has killed will lie scattered from one end of the earth to the other. No one will mourn for them, and they will not be taken away and buried. They will lie on the ground like piles of manure.H2491H3068H3117H7097H776H7097H776H5594H622H6912H1828H6440H127 34Cry, you leaders, you shepherds of my people, cry out loud! Mourn and roll in the dust. The time has come for you to be slaughtered, and you will be butchered like rams.H3213H7462H2199H6428H117H6629H3117H2873H8600H4390H5307H2532H3627 35There will be no way for you to escape.H7462H4498H6H117H6629H6413 36You moan and cry out in distressH6963H6818H7462H3215H117H6629H3068H7703H4830 37because the LORD in his anger has destroyed your nation and left your peaceful country in ruins.H7965H4999H1826H6440H2740H639H3068 38The LORD has abandoned his people like a lion that leaves its cave. The horrors of war and the LORD's fierce anger have turned the country into a desert.H5800H5520H3715H776H8047H6440H2740H3238H6440H2740H639
