Judah to Serve Nebuchadnezzar

27Early in the reign of Zedekiah son of Josiah king of Judah, this word came to Jeremiah from the LORD:H7225H4467H3079H1121H2977H4428H3063H1697H3414H3068H559 2This is what the LORD said to me: "Make a yoke out of straps and crossbars and put it on your neck.H559H3068H6213H4147H4133H5414H6677 3Then send word to the kings of Edom, Moab, Ammon, Tyre and Sidon through the envoys who have come to Jerusalem to Zedekiah king of Judah.H7971H4428H123H4428H4124H4428H1121H5983H4428H6865H4428H6721H3027H4397H935H3389H6667H4428H3063 4Give them a message for their masters and say, 'This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: "Tell this to your masters:H6680H559H113H559H3068H6635H430H3478H559H113 5With my great power and outstretched arm I made the earth and its people and the animals that are on it, and I give it to anyone I please.H6213H776H120H929H6440H776H1419H3581H5186H2220H5414H5869H3474 6Now I will give all your countries into the hands of my servant Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon; I will make even the wild animals subject to him.H5414H776H3027H5019H4428H894H5650H2416H7704H5414H5647 7All nations will serve him and his son and his grandson until the time for his land comes; then many nations and great kings will subjugate him.H1471H5647H1121H1121H1121H6256H776H935H7227H1471H1419H4428H5647 8" ' "If, however, any nation or kingdom will not serve Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon or bow its neck under his yoke, I will punish that nation with the sword, famine and plague, declares the LORD, until I destroy it by his hand.H1471H4467H5647H5019H4428H894H5414H6677H5923H4428H894H1471H6485H5002H3068H2719H7458H1698H8552H3027 9So do not listen to your prophets, your diviners, your interpreters of dreams, your mediums or your sorcerers who tell you, 'You will not serve the king of Babylon.'H8085H5030H7080H2472H6049H3786H559H559H5647H4428H894 10They prophesy lies to you that will only serve to remove you far from your lands; I will banish you and you will perish.H5012H8267H7368H127H5080H6 11But if any nation will bow its neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon and serve him, I will let that nation remain in its own land to till it and to live there, declares the LORD." ' "H1471H935H6677H5923H4428H894H5647H3240H127H5002H3068H5647H3427 12I gave the same message to Zedekiah king of Judah. I said, "Bow your neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon; serve him and his people, and you will live.H1696H6667H4428H3063H1697H559H935H6677H5923H4428H894H5647H5971H2421 13Why will you and your people die by the sword, famine and plague with which the LORD has threatened any nation that will not serve the king of Babylon?H4191H5971H2719H7458H1698H3068H1696H1471H5647H4428H894 14Do not listen to the words of the prophets who say to you, 'You will not serve the king of Babylon,' for they are prophesying lies to you.H8085H1697H5030H559H559H5647H4428H894H5012H8267 15'I have not sent them,' declares the LORD. 'They are prophesying lies in my name. Therefore, I will banish you and you will perish, both you and the prophets who prophesy to you.' "H7971H5002H3068H5012H8267H8034H5080H6H5030H5012 16Then I said to the priests and all these people, "This is what the LORD says: Do not listen to the prophets who say, 'Very soon now the articles from the LORD's house will be brought back from Babylon.' They are prophesying lies to you.H1696H3548H5971H559H559H3068H8085H1697H5030H5012H559H3627H3068H1004H4120H7725H894H5012H8267 17Do not listen to them. Serve the king of Babylon, and you will live. Why should this city become a ruin?H8085H5647H4428H894H2421H5892H2723 18If they are prophets and have the word of the LORD, let them plead with the LORD Almighty that the articles remaining in the house of the LORD and in the palace of the king of Judah and in Jerusalem not be taken to Babylon.H5030H1697H3068H3426H6293H3068H6635H3627H3498H1004H3068H1004H4428H3063H3389H935H894 19For this is what the LORD Almighty says about the pillars, the Sea, the movable stands and the other articles that are left in this city,H559H3068H6635H5982H3220H4350H3499H3627H3498H5892 20which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon did not take away when he carried Jehoiachin son of Jehoiakim king of Judah into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon, along with all the nobles of Judah and Jerusalem—H5019H4428H894H3947H1540H3204H1121H3079H4428H3063H3389H894H2715H3063H3389 21yes, this is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says about the things that are left in the house of the LORD and in the palace of the king of Judah and in Jerusalem:H559H3068H6635H430H3478H3627H3498H1004H3068H1004H4428H3063H3389 22'They will be taken to Babylon and there they will remain until the day I come for them,' declares the LORD. 'Then I will bring them back and restore them to this place.' "H935H894H3117H6485H5002H3068H5927H7725H4725
