New King James Version

Seventy Years of Desolation

25The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the people of Judah, in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah (which was the first year of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon),H1697H3414H5971H3063H7243H8141H3079H1121H2977H4428H3063H7224H8141H5019H4428H894 2which Jeremiah the prophet spoke to all the people of Judah and to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying:H3414H5030H1696H5971H3063H3427H3389H559 3"From the thirteenth year of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah, even to this day, this is the twenty-third year in which the word of the LORD has come to me; and I have spoken to you, rising early and speaking, but you have not listened.H7969H6240H8141H2977H1121H526H4428H3063H3117H7969H6242H8141H1697H3068H1696H7925H1696H8085 4"And the LORD has sent to you all His servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, but you have not listened nor inclined your ear to hear.H3068H7971H5650H5030H7925H7971H8085H5186H241H8085 5"They said, 'Repent now everyone of his evil way and his evil doings, and dwell in the land that the LORD has given to you and your fathers forever and ever.H559H7725H376H7451H1870H7455H4611H3427H127H3068H5414H1H5704H5769H5769 6'Do not go after other gods to serve them and worship them, and do not provoke Me to anger with the works of your hands; and I will not harm you.'H3212H310H312H430H5647H7812H3707H4639H3027H7489 7"Yet you have not listened to Me," says the LORD, "that you might provoke Me to anger with the works of your hands to your own hurt.H8085H5002H3068H3707H4639H3027H7451 8"Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts: 'Because you have not heard My words,H559H3068H6635H8085H1697 9'behold, I will send and take all the families of the north,' says the LORD, 'and Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, My servant, and will bring them against this land, against its inhabitants, and against these nations all around, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, a hissing, and perpetual desolations.H7971H3947H4940H6828H5002H3068H5019H4428H894H5650H935H776H3427H1471H5439H2763H7760H8047H8322H5769H2723 10'Moreover 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 and the light of the lamp.H6H6963H8342H6963H8057H6963H2860H6963H3618H6963H7347H216H5216 11'And this whole land shall be a desolation and an astonishment, and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.H776H2723H8047H1471H5647H4428H894H7657H8141 12'Then it will come to pass, when seventy years are completed, that I will punish the king of Babylon and that nation, the land of the Chaldeans, for their iniquity,' says the LORD; 'and I will make it a perpetual desolation.H7657H8141H4390H6485H4428H894H1471H5002H3068H5771H776H3778H7760H5769H8077 13'So I will bring on that land all My words which I have pronounced against it, all that is written in this book, which Jeremiah has prophesied concerning all the nations.H935H776H1697H1696H3789H5612H3414H5012H1471 14'(For many nations and great kings shall be served by them also; and I will repay them according to their deeds and according to the works of their own hands.)'"H7227H1471H1419H4428H5647H7999H6467H4639H3027

Judgment on the Nations

15For thus says the LORD God of Israel to me: "Take this wine cup of fury from My hand, and cause all the nations, to whom I send you, to drink it.H559H3068H430H3478H3947H3196H3563H2534H3027H1471H7971H8248 16"And they will drink and stagger and go mad because of the sword that I will send among them."H8354H1607H1984H6440H2719H7971 17Then I took the cup from the LORD'S hand, and made all the nations drink, to whom the LORD had sent me:H3947H3563H3068H3027H1471H8248H3068H7971 18Jerusalem and the cities of Judah, its kings and its princes, to make them a desolation, an astonishment, a hissing, and a curse, as it is this day;H3389H5892H3063H4428H8269H5414H2723H8047H8322H7045H3117 19Pharaoh king of Egypt, his servants, his princes, and all his people;H6547H4428H4714H5650H8269H5971 20all the mixed multitude, all the kings of the land of Uz, all the kings of the land of the Philistines (namely, Ashkelon, Gaza, Ekron, and the remnant of Ashdod);H6153H4428H776H5780H4428H776H6430H831H5804H6138H7611H795 21Edom, Moab, and the people of Ammon;H123H4124H1121H5983 22all the kings of Tyre, all the kings of Sidon, and the kings of the coastlands which are across the sea;H4428H6865H4428H6721H4428H339H5676H3220 23Dedan, Tema, Buz, and all who are in the farthest corners;H1719H8485H938H7112H6285 24all the kings of Arabia and all the kings of the mixed multitude who dwell in the desert;H4428H6152H4428H6153H7931H4057 25all the kings of Zimri, all the kings of Elam, and all the kings of the Medes;H4428H2174H4428H5867H4428H4074 26all the kings of the north, far and near, one with another; and all the kingdoms of the world which are on the face of the earth. Also the king of Sheshach shall drink after them.H4428H6828H7350H7138H376H251H4467H776H6440H127H4428H8347H8354H310 27"Therefore you shall say to them, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: "Drink, be drunk, and vomit! Fall and rise no more, because of the sword which I will send among you."'H559H559H3068H6635H430H3478H8354H7937H7006H5307H6965H6440H2719H7971 28"And it shall be, 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 certainly drink!H3985H3947H3563H3027H8354H559H559H3068H6635H8354H8354 29"For behold, I begin to bring calamity on the city which is called by My name, and should you be utterly unpunished? You shall not be unpunished, for I will call for a sword on all the inhabitants of the earth," says the LORD of hosts.'H2490H7489H5892H7121H8034H5352H5352H5352H7121H2719H3427H776H5002H3068H6635 30"Therefore prophesy against them all these words, and say to them: 'The LORD will roar from on high, And utter His voice from His holy habitation; He will roar mightily against His fold. He will give a shout, as those who tread the grapes, Against all the inhabitants of the earth.H5012H1697H559H3068H7580H4791H5414H6963H6944H4583H7580H7580H5116H6030H1959H1869H3427H776 31A noise will come to the ends of the earth—For the LORD has a controversy with the nations; He will plead His case with all flesh. He will give those who are wicked to the sword,' says the LORD."H7588H935H7097H776H3068H7379H1471H8199H1320H5414H7563H2719H5002H3068 32Thus says the LORD of hosts: "Behold, disaster shall go forth From nation to nation, And a great whirlwind shall be raised up From the farthest parts of the earth.H559H3068H6635H7451H3318H1471H1471H1419H5591H5782H3411H776 33"And at that day the slain of the LORD shall be from one end of the earth even to the other end of the earth. They shall not be lamented, or gathered, or buried; they shall become refuse on the ground.H2491H3068H3117H7097H776H7097H776H5594H622H6912H1828H6440H127 34"Wail, shepherds, and cry! Roll about in the ashes, You leaders of the flock! For the days of your slaughter and your dispersions are fulfilled; You shall fall like a precious vessel.H3213H7462H2199H6428H117H6629H3117H2873H8600H4390H5307H2532H3627 35And the shepherds will have no way to flee, Nor the leaders of the flock to escape.H7462H4498H6H117H6629H6413 36A voice of the cry of the shepherds, And a wailing of the leaders to the flock will be heard. For the LORD has plundered their pasture,H6963H6818H7462H3215H117H6629H3068H7703H4830 37And the peaceful dwellings are cut down Because of the fierce anger of the LORD.H7965H4999H1826H6440H2740H639H3068 38He has left His lair like the lion; For their land is desolate Because of the fierceness of the Oppressor, And because of His fierce anger."H5800H5520H3715H776H8047H6440H2740H3238H6440H2740H639
