Jeremiah’s Letter to the Captives

29Now these are the wordsH1697 of the letterH5612 that JeremiahH3414 the prophetH5030 sentH7971 from JerusalemH3389 unto the residueH3499 of the eldersH2205 which were carried away captivesH1473, and to the priestsH3548, and to the prophetsH5030, and to all the peopleH5971 whom NebuchadnezzarH5019 had carried away captiveH1540 from JerusalemH3389 to BabylonH894; 2(AfterH310 that JeconiahH3204 the kingH4428, and the queenH1377, and the eunuchsH5631, the princesH8269 of JudahH3063 and JerusalemH3389, and the carpentersH2796, and the smithsH4525, were departedH3318 from JerusalemH3389;) / eunuchs: or, chamberlains 3By the handH3027 of ElasahH501 the sonH1121 of ShaphanH8227, and GemariahH1587 the sonH1121 of HilkiahH2518, (whom ZedekiahH6667 kingH4428 of JudahH3063 sentH7971 unto BabylonH894 to NebuchadnezzarH5019 kingH4428 of BabylonH894) sayingH559, 4Thus saithH559 the LORDH3068 of hostsH6635, the GodH430 of IsraelH3478, unto all that are carried away captivesH1473, whom I have caused to be carried awayH1540 from JerusalemH3389 unto BabylonH894; 5BuildH1129 ye housesH1004, and dwellH3427 in them; and plantH5193 gardensH1593, and eatH398 the fruitH6529 of them; 6TakeH3947 ye wivesH802, and begetH3205 sonsH1121 and daughtersH1323; and takeH3947 wivesH802 for your sonsH1121, and giveH5414 your daughtersH1323 to husbandsH582, that they may bearH3205 sonsH1121 and daughtersH1121; that ye may be increasedH7235 there, and not diminishedH4591. 7And seekH1875 the peaceH7965 of the cityH5892 whither I have caused you to be carried away captivesH1540, and prayH6419 unto the LORDH3068 for it: for in the peaceH7965 thereof shall ye have peaceH7965. 8For thus saithH559 the LORDH3068 of hostsH6635, the GodH430 of IsraelH3478; Let not your prophetsH5030 and your divinersH7080, that be in the midstH7130 of you, deceiveH5377 you, neither hearkenH8085 to your dreamsH2472 which ye cause to be dreamedH2492. 9For they prophesyH5012 falselyH8267 unto you in my nameH8034: I have not sentH7971 them, saithH5002 the LORDH3068. / falsely: Heb. in a lie 10For thus saithH559 the LORDH3068, That afterH6310 seventyH7657 yearsH8141 be accomplishedH4390 at BabylonH894 I will visitH6485 you, and performH6965 my goodH2896 wordH1697 toward you, in causing you to returnH7725 to this placeH4725. 11For I knowH3045 the thoughtsH4284 that I thinkH2803 toward you, saithH5002 the LORDH3068, thoughtsH4284 of peaceH7965, and not of evilH7451, to giveH5414 you an expectedH8615 endH319. / expected…: Heb. end and expectation 12Then shall ye callH7121 upon me, and ye shall goH1980 and prayH6419 unto me, and I will hearkenH8085 unto you. 13And ye shall seekH1245 me, and findH4672 me, when ye shall searchH1875 for me with all your heartH3824. 14And I will be foundH4672 of you, saithH5002 the LORDH3068: and I will turn awayH7725 your captivityH7622H7622, and I will gatherH6908 you from all the nationsH1471, and from all the placesH4725 whither I have drivenH5080 you, saithH5002 the LORDH3068; and I will bring you againH7725 into the placeH4725 whence I caused you to be carried away captiveH1540. 15Because ye have saidH559, The LORDH3068 hath raised us upH6965 prophetsH5030 in BabylonH894; 16Know that thus saithH559 the LORDH3068 of the kingH4428 that sittethH3427 upon the throneH3678 of DavidH1732, and of all the peopleH5971 that dwellethH3427 in this cityH5892, and of your brethrenH251 that are not gone forthH3318 with you into captivityH1473; 17Thus saithH559 the LORDH3068 of hostsH6635; Behold, I will sendH7971 upon them the swordH2719, the famineH7458, and the pestilenceH1698, and will makeH5414 them like vileH8182 figsH8384, that cannot be eatenH398, they are so evilH7455. 18And I will persecuteH7291 themH310 with the swordH2719, with the famineH7458, and with the pestilenceH1698, and will deliverH5414 them to be removedH2189H2113 to all the kingdomsH4467 of the earthH776, to be a curseH423, and an astonishmentH8047, and an hissingH8322, and a reproachH2781, among all the nationsH1471 whither I have drivenH5080 them: / to be a curse: Heb. for a curse 19Because they have not hearkenedH8085 to my wordsH1697, saithH5002 the LORDH3068, which I sentH7971 unto them by my servantsH5650 the prophetsH5030, rising up earlyH7925 and sendingH7971 them; but ye would not hearH8085, saithH5002 the LORDH3068. 20HearH8085 ye therefore the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068, all ye of the captivityH1473, whom I have sentH7971 from JerusalemH3389 to BabylonH894: 21Thus saithH559 the LORDH3068 of hostsH6635, the GodH430 of IsraelH3478, of AhabH256 the sonH1121 of KolaiahH6964, and of ZedekiahH6667 the sonH1121 of MaaseiahH4641, which prophesyH5012 a lieH8267 unto you in my nameH8034; Behold, I will deliverH5414 them into the handH3027 of NebuchadrezzarH5019 kingH4428 of BabylonH894; and he shall slayH5221 them before your eyesH5869; 22And of them shall be taken upH3947 a curseH7045 by all the captivityH1546 of JudahH3063 which are in BabylonH894, sayingH559, The LORDH3068 makeH7760 thee like ZedekiahH6667 and like AhabH256, whom the kingH4428 of BabylonH894 roastedH7033 in the fireH784; 23Because they have committedH6213 villanyH5039 in IsraelH3478, and have committedH6213 adulteryH5003 with their neighbours'H7453 wivesH802, and have spokenH1696 lyingH8267 wordsH1697 in my nameH8034, which I have not commandedH6680 them; even I knowH3045, and am a witnessH5707, saithH5002 the LORDH3068. 24Thus shalt thou also speakH559 to ShemaiahH8098 the NehelamiteH5161, sayingH559, / Nehelamite: or, dreamer 25Thus speakethH559 the LORDH3068 of hostsH6635, the GodH430 of IsraelH3478, sayingH559, Because thou hast sentH7971 lettersH5612 in thy nameH8034 unto all the peopleH5971 that are at JerusalemH3389, and to ZephaniahH6846 the sonH1121 of MaaseiahH4641 the priestH3548, and to all the priestsH3548, sayingH559, 26The LORDH3068 hath madeH5414 thee priestH3548 in the stead of JehoiadaH3077 the priestH3548, that ye should be officersH6496 in the houseH1004 of the LORDH3068, for every manH376 that is madH7696, and maketh himself a prophetH5012, that thou shouldest putH5414 him in prisonH4115, and in the stocksH6729. 27Now therefore why hast thou not reprovedH1605 JeremiahH3414 of AnathothH6069, which maketh himself a prophetH5012 to you? 28For therefore he sentH7971 unto us in BabylonH894, sayingH559, ThisH1931 captivity is longH752: buildH1129 ye housesH1004, and dwellH3427 in them; and plantH5193 gardensH1593, and eatH398 the fruitH6529 of them. 29And ZephaniahH6846 the priestH3548 readH7121 this letterH5612 in the earsH241 of JeremiahH3414 the prophetH5030. 30Then came the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 unto JeremiahH3414, sayingH559, 31SendH7971 to all them of the captivityH1473, sayingH559, Thus saithH559 the LORDH3068 concerning ShemaiahH8098 the NehelamiteH5161; Because that ShemaiahH8098 hath prophesiedH5012 unto you, and I sentH7971 him not, and he caused you to trustH982 in a lieH8267: 32Therefore thus saithH559 the LORDH3068; Behold, I will punishH6485 ShemaiahH8098 the NehelamiteH5161, and his seedH2233: he shall not have a manH376 to dwellH3427 amongH8432 this peopleH5971; neither shall he beholdH7200 the goodH2896 that I will doH6213 for my peopleH5971, saithH5002 the LORDH3068; because he hath taughtH1696 rebellionH5627 against the LORDH3068. / rebellion: Heb. revolt
