Jeremiah Wears an Ox Yoke

27Soon after Josiah's son Zedekiah became king of Judah, the LORD told meH7225H4467H3079H1121H2977H4428H3063H1697H3414H3068H559 2to make myself a yoke out of leather straps and wooden crossbars and to put it on my neck.H559H3068H6213H4147H4133H5414H6677 3Then the LORD told me to send a message to the kings of Edom, Moab, Ammon, Tyre, and Sidon through their ambassadors who had come to Jerusalem to see King Zedekiah.H7971H4428H123H4428H4124H4428H1121H5983H4428H6865H4428H6721H3027H4397H935H3389H6667H4428H3063 4The LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, told me to command them to tell their kings that the LORD had said:H6680H559H113H559H3068H6635H430H3478H559H113 5"By my great power and strength I created the world, human beings, and all the animals that live on the earth; and I give it to anyone I choose.H6213H776H120H929H6440H776H1419H3581H5186H2220H5414H5869H3474 6I am the one who has placed all these nations under the power of my servant, King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylonia, and I have made even the wild animals serve him.H5414H776H3027H5019H4428H894H5650H2416H7704H5414H5647 7All nations will serve him, and they will serve his son and his grandson until the time comes for his own nation to fall. Then his nation will serve powerful nations and great kings.H1471H5647H1121H1121H1121H6256H776H935H7227H1471H1419H4428H5647 8"But if any nation or kingdom will not submit to his rule, then I will punish that nation by war, starvation, and disease until I have let Nebuchadnezzar destroy it completely.H1471H4467H5647H5019H4428H894H5414H6677H5923H4428H894H1471H6485H5002H3068H2719H7458H1698H8552H3027 9Do not listen to your prophets or to those who claim they can predict the future, either by dreams or by calling up the spirits of the dead or by magic. They all tell you not to submit to the king of Babylonia.H8085H5030H7080H2472H6049H3786H559H559H5647H4428H894 10They are deceiving you and will cause you to be taken far away from your country. I will drive you out, and you will be destroyed.H5012H8267H7368H127H5080H6 11But if any nation submits to the king of Babylonia and serves him, then I will let it stay on in its own land, to farm it and live there. I, the LORD, have spoken."H1471H935H6677H5923H4428H894H5647H3240H127H5002H3068H5647H3427 12I said the same thing to King Zedekiah of Judah, "Submit to the king of Babylonia. Serve him and his people, and you will live.H1696H6667H4428H3063H1697H559H935H6677H5923H4428H894H5647H5971H2421 13Why should you and your people die in war or of starvation or disease? That is what the LORD has said will happen to any nation that does not submit to the king of Babylonia.H4191H5971H2719H7458H1698H3068H1696H1471H5647H4428H894 14Do not listen to the prophets who tell you not to surrender to him. They are deceiving you.H8085H1697H5030H559H559H5647H4428H894H5012H8267 15The LORD himself has said that he did not send them and that they are lying to you in his name. And so he will drive you out, and you will be killed, you and the prophets who are telling you these lies."H7971H5002H3068H5012H8267H8034H5080H6H5030H5012 16Then I told the priests and the people that the LORD had said: "Do not listen to the prophets who say that the Temple treasures will soon be brought back from Babylonia. They are lying to you.H1696H3548H5971H559H559H3068H8085H1697H5030H5012H559H3627H3068H1004H4120H7725H894H5012H8267 17Don't listen to them! Submit to the king of Babylonia and you will live! Why should this city become a pile of ruins?H8085H5647H4428H894H2421H5892H2723 18If they are really prophets and if they have my message, let them ask me, the LORD Almighty, not to allow the treasures that remain in the Temple and in the royal palace to be taken to Babylonia."H5030H1697H3068H3426H6293H3068H6635H3627H3498H1004H3068H1004H4428H3063H3389H935H894 19(When King Nebuchadnezzar took away to Babylonia the king of Judah, Jehoiachin son of Jehoiakim, and the leading men of Judah and Jerusalem,H559H3068H6635H5982H3220H4350H3499H3627H3498H5892 20he left the columns, the bronze tank, the carts, and some of the other Temple treasures.)H5019H4428H894H3947H1540H3204H1121H3079H4428H3063H3389H894H2715H3063H3389 21"Listen to what I, the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, say about the treasures that are left in the Temple and in the royal palace in Jerusalem:H559H3068H6635H430H3478H3627H3498H1004H3068H1004H4428H3063H3389 22They will be taken to Babylonia and will remain there until I turn my attention to them. Then I will bring them back and restore them to this place. I, the LORD, have spoken."H935H894H3117H6485H5002H3068H5927H7725H4725
