The Nations to Submit to Nebuchadnezzar

27In the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah the son of Josiah, king of Judah, this word came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying—H7225H4467H3079H1121H2977H4428H3063H1697H3414H3068H559 2thus says the LORD to me— "Make for yourself bonds and yokes and put them on your neck,H559H3068H6213H4147H4133H5414H6677 3and send word to the king of Edom, to the king of Moab, to the king of the sons of Ammon, to the king of Tyre, and to the king of Sidon by the messengers who come to Jerusalem to Zedekiah king of Judah.H7971H4428H123H4428H4124H4428H1121H5983H4428H6865H4428H6721H3027H4397H935H3389H6667H4428H3063 4"And command them [to go] to their masters, saying, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, thus you shall say to your masters,H6680H559H113H559H3068H6635H430H3478H559H113 5"I have made the earth, the men and the beasts which are on the face of the earth by My great power and by My outstretched arm, and I will give it to the one who is pleasing in My sight.H6213H776H120H929H6440H776H1419H3581H5186H2220H5414H5869H3474 6"And now I have given all these lands into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, My servant, and I have given him also the wild animals of the field to serve him.H5414H776H3027H5019H4428H894H5650H2416H7704H5414H5647 7"And all the nations shall serve him, and his son, and his grandson, until the time of his own land comes; then many nations and great kings will make him their servant.H1471H5647H1121H1121H1121H6256H776H935H7227H1471H1419H4428H5647 8"And it will be, [that] the nation or the kingdom which will not serve him, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and which will not put its neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, I will punish that nation with the sword, with famine, and with pestilence," declares the LORD, "until I have destroyed it by his hand.H1471H4467H5647H5019H4428H894H5414H6677H5923H4428H894H1471H6485H5002H3068H2719H7458H1698H8552H3027 9"But as for you, do not listen to your prophets, your diviners, your dreamers, your soothsayers, or your sorcerers, who speak to you, saying, 'You shall not serve the king of Babylon.'H8085H5030H7080H2472H6049H3786H559H559H5647H4428H894 10"For they prophesy a lie to you, in order to remove you far from your land; and I will drive you out, and you will perish.H5012H8267H7368H127H5080H6 11"But the nation which will bring its neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon and serve him, I will let remain on its land," declares the LORD ,"and they will till it and dwell in it." '"H1471H935H6677H5923H4428H894H5647H3240H127H5002H3068H5647H3427 12And I spoke words like all these to Zedekiah king of Judah, saying, "Bring your necks under the yoke of the king of Babylon, and serve him and his people, and live!H1696H6667H4428H3063H1697H559H935H6677H5923H4428H894H5647H5971H2421 13"Why will you die, you and your people, by the sword, famine, and pestilence, as the LORD has spoken to that nation which will not serve the king of Babylon?H4191H5971H2719H7458H1698H3068H1696H1471H5647H4428H894 14"So do not listen to the words of the prophets who speak to you, saying, 'You shall not serve the king of Babylon,' for they prophesy a lie to you;H8085H1697H5030H559H559H5647H4428H894H5012H8267 15for I have not sent them, "declares the LORD," but they prophesy falsely in My name, in order that I may drive you out, and that you may perish, you and the prophets who prophesy to you. "H7971H5002H3068H5012H8267H8034H5080H6H5030H5012 16[Then] I spoke to the priests and to all this people, saying, "Thus says the LORD: Do not listen to the words of your prophets who prophesy to you, saying, 'Behold, the vessels of the Lord's house will now shortly be brought again from Babylon'; for they are prophesying a lie to you.H1696H3548H5971H559H559H3068H8085H1697H5030H5012H559H3627H3068H1004H4120H7725H894H5012H8267 17"Do not listen to them; serve the king of Babylon, and live! Why should this city become a ruin?H8085H5647H4428H894H2421H5892H2723 18"But if they are prophets, and if the word of the LORD is with them, let them now entreat the LORD of hosts, that the vessels which are left in the house of the LORD, in the house of the king of Judah, and in Jerusalem, may not go to Babylon.H5030H1697H3068H3426H6293H3068H6635H3627H3498H1004H3068H1004H4428H3063H3389H935H894 19"For thus says the LORD of hosts concerning the pillars, concerning the sea, concerning the stands, and concerning the rest of the vessels that are left in this city,H559H3068H6635H5982H3220H4350H3499H3627H3498H5892 20which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon did not take when he carried into exile Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, from Jerusalem to Babylon, and all the nobles of Judah and Jerusalem.H5019H4428H894H3947H1540H3204H1121H3079H4428H3063H3389H894H2715H3063H3389 21"Yes, thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, concerning the vessels that are left in the house of the LORD, and in the house of the king of Judah, and in Jerusalem,H559H3068H6635H430H3478H3627H3498H1004H3068H1004H4428H3063H3389 22'They shall be carried to Babylon, and they shall be there until the day I visit them,' declares the LORD. 'Then I will bring them back and restore them to this place.' "H935H894H3117H6485H5002H3068H5927H7725H4725
