Jeremiah Imprisoned

32The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD in the tenth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, which was the eighteenth year of Nebuchadnezzar.H1697H3414H3068H6224H8141H6667H4428H3063H8083H6240H8141H8141H5019 2Now at that time the army of the king of Babylon was besieging Jerusalem, and Jeremiah the prophet was shut up in the court of the guard, which was [in] the house of the king of Judah,H4428H894H2428H6696H3389H3414H5030H3607H2691H4307H4428H3063H1004 3because Zedekiah king of Judah had shut him up, saying, "Why do you prophesy, saying, 'Thus says the LORD," Behold, I am about to give this city into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he will take it;H6667H4428H3063H3607H559H5012H559H559H3068H5414H5892H3027H4428H894H3920 4and Zedekiah king of Judah shall not escape out of the hand of the Chaldeans, but he shall surely be given into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall speak with him face to face, and see him eye to eye;H6667H4428H3063H4422H3027H3778H5414H5414H3027H4428H894H1696H6310H6310H5869H7200H5869 5and he shall take Zedekiah to Babylon, and he shall be there until I visit him, "declares the LORD." If you fight against the Chaldeans, you shall not succeed "'?"H3212H6667H894H6485H5002H3068H3898H3778H6743 6And Jeremiah said, "The word of the LORD came to me, saying,H3414H559H1697H3068H559 7'Behold, Hanamel the son of Shallum your uncle is coming to you, saying, "Buy for yourself my field which is at Anathoth, for you have the right of redemption to buy [it.]"'H2601H1121H7967H1730H935H559H7069H7704H6068H4941H1353H7069 8"Then Hanamel my uncle's son came to me in the court of the guard according to the word of the LORD, and said to me, 'Buy my field, please, that is at Anathoth, which is in the land of Benjamin; for you have the right of possession and the redemption is yours; buy [it] for yourself.' Then I knew that this was the word of the LORD.H2601H1730H1121H935H2691H4307H1697H3068H559H7069H7704H6068H776H1144H4941H3425H1353H7069H3045H1697H3068 9"And I bought the field which was at Anathoth from Hanamel my uncle's son, and I weighed out the silver for him, seventeen shekels of silver.H7069H7704H2601H1730H1121H6068H8254H3701H7651H6235H8255H3701 10"And I signed and sealed the deed, and called in witnesses, and weighed out the silver on the scales.H3789H5612H2856H5749H5707H8254H3701H3976 11"Then I took the deeds of purchase, both the sealed [copy containing] the terms and conditions, and the open [copy;]H3947H5612H4736H2856H4687H2706H1540 12and I gave the deed of purchase to Baruch the son of Neriah, the son of Mahseiah, in the sight of Hanamel my uncle's [son,] and in the sight of the witnesses who signed the deed of purchase, before all the Jews who were sitting in the court of the guard.H5414H5612H4736H1263H1121H5374H1121H4271H5869H2601H1730H5869H5707H3789H5612H4736H5869H3064H3427H2691H4307 13"And I commanded Baruch in their presence, saying,H6680H1263H5869H559 14'Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, "Take these deeds, this sealed deed of purchase, and this open deed, and put them in an earthenware jar, that they may last a long time."H559H3068H6635H430H3478H3947H5612H5612H4736H2856H5612H1540H5414H2789H3627H5975H7227H3117 15'For thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, "Houses and fields and vineyards shall again be bought in this land."'H559H3068H6635H430H3478H1004H7704H3754H7069H776

Jeremiah Prays and God Explains

16"After I had given the deed of purchase to Baruch the son of Neriah, then I prayed to the LORD, saying,H310H5414H5612H4736H1263H1121H5374H6419H3068H559 17'Ah Lord GOD! Behold, Thou hast made the heavens and the earth by Thy great power and by Thine outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for Thee,H162H136H3069H6213H8064H776H1419H3581H5186H2220H1697H6381 18who showest lovingkindness to thousands, but repayest the iniquity of fathers into the bosom of their children after them, O great and mighty God. The LORD of hosts is His name;H6213H2617H505H7999H5771H1H2436H1121H310H1419H1368H410H3068H6635H8034 19great in counsel and mighty in deed, whose eyes are open to all the ways of the sons of men, giving to everyone according to his ways and according to the fruit of his deeds;H1419H6098H7227H5950H5869H6491H1870H1121H120H5414H376H1870H6529H4611 20who hast set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, [and] even to this day both in Israel and among mankind; and Thou hast made a name for Thyself, as at this day.H7760H226H4159H776H4714H3117H3478H120H6213H8034H3117 21'And Thou didst bring Thy people Israel out of the land of Egypt with signs and with wonders, and with a strong hand and with an outstretched arm, and with great terror;H3318H5971H3478H776H4714H226H4159H2389H3027H5186H248H1419H4172 22and gavest them this land, which Thou didst swear to their forefathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey.H5414H776H7650H1H5414H776H2100H2461H1706 23'And they came in and took possession of it, but they did not obey Thy voice or walk in Thy law; they have done nothing of all that Thou commandedst them to do; therefore Thou hast made all this calamity come upon them.H935H3423H8085H6963H1980H8451H6213H6680H6213H7451H7122 24'Behold, the siege mounds have reached the city to take it; and the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans who fight against it, because of the sword, the famine, and the pestilence; and what Thou hast spoken has come to pass; and, behold, Thou seest [it.]H5550H935H5892H3920H5892H5414H3027H3778H3898H6440H2719H7458H1698H1696H7200 25'And Thou hast said to me, O Lord GOD, "Buy for yourself the field with money, and call in witnesses"— although the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans.' "H559H136H3069H7069H7704H3701H5749H5707H5892H5414H3027H3778 26Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying,H1697H3068H3414H559 27"Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh; is anything too difficult for Me?"H3068H430H1320H1697H6381 28Therefore thus says the LORD, "Behold, I am about to give this city into the hand of the Chaldeans and into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and he shall take it.H559H3068H5414H5892H3027H3778H3027H5019H4428H894H3920 29"And the Chaldeans who are fighting against this city shall enter and set this city on fire and burn it, with the houses where [people] have offered incense to Baal on their roofs and poured out libations to other gods to provoke Me to anger.H3778H3898H5892H935H3341H784H5892H8313H1004H1406H6999H1168H5258H5262H312H430H3707 30"Indeed the sons of Israel and the sons of Judah have been doing only evil in My sight from their youth; for the sons of Israel have been only provoking Me to anger by the work of their hands," declares the LORD.H1121H3478H1121H3063H6213H7451H5869H5271H1121H3478H3707H4639H3027H5002H3068 31"Indeed this city has been to Me [a provocation of] My anger and My wrath from the day that they built it, even to this day, that it should be removed from before My face,H5892H639H2534H3117H1129H3117H5493H6440 32because of all the evil of the sons of Israel and the sons of Judah, which they have done to provoke Me to anger— they, their kings, their leaders, their priests, their prophets, the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.H7451H1121H3478H1121H3063H6213H3707H4428H8269H3548H5030H376H3063H3427H3389 33"And they have turned [their] back to Me, and not [their] face; though [I] taught them, teaching again and again, they would not listen and receive instruction.H6437H6203H6440H3925H7925H3925H8085H3947H4148 34"But they put their detestable things in the house which is called by My name, to defile it.H7760H8251H1004H7121H8034H2930 35"And they built the high places of Baal that are in the valley of Ben-hinnom to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through [the fire] to Molech, which I had not commanded them nor had it entered My mind that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.H1129H1116H1168H1516H1121H2011H1121H1323H5674H4432H6680H5927H3820H6213H8441H3063H2398 36"Now therefore thus says the LORD God of Israel concerning this city of which you say, 'It is given into the hand of the king of Babylon by sword, by famine, and by pestilence.'H559H3068H430H3478H5892H559H5414H3027H4428H894H2719H7458H1698 37"Behold, I will gather them out of all the lands to which I have driven them in My anger, in My wrath, and in great indignation; and I will bring them back to this place and make them dwell in safety.H6908H776H5080H639H2534H1419H7110H7725H4725H3427H983 38"And they shall be My people, and I will be their God;H5971H430 39and I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear Me always, for their own good, and for [the good of] their children after them.H5414H259H3820H259H1870H3372H3117H2896H1121H310 40"And I will make an everlasting covenant with them that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; and I will put the fear of Me in their hearts so that they will not turn away from Me.H3772H5769H1285H7725H310H3190H5414H3374H3824H5493 41"And I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will faithfully plant them in this land with all My heart and with all My soul.H7797H2895H5193H776H571H3820H5315 42"For thus says the LORD, 'Just as I brought all this great disaster on this people, so I am going to bring on them all the good that I am promising them.H559H3068H935H1419H7451H5971H935H2896H1696 43'And fields shall be bought in this land of which you say, "It is a desolation, without man or beast; it is given into the hand of the Chaldeans."H7704H7069H776H559H8077H120H929H5414H3027H3778 44'Men shall buy fields for money, sign and seal deeds, and call in witnesses in the land of Benjamin, in the environs of Jerusalem, in the cities of Judah, in the cities of the hill country, in the cities of the lowland, and in the cities of the Negev; for I will restore their fortunes,' declares the LORD.
