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 Nebuchadrezzar.H1697H3414H3068H6224H8141H6667H4428H3063H8083H6240H8141H8141H5019 2For the king of Babylon's army was then 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 3For Zedekiah king of Judah had locked him up, saying, Why do you prophesy and say, Thus says the Lord: Behold, I am giving this city into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall take it;H6667H4428H3063H3607H559H5012H559H559H3068H5414H5892H3027H4428H894H3920 4And Zedekiah king of Judah shall not escape out of the hands of the Chaldeans but shall surely be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon, and shall speak with him face to face and see him eye to eye;H6667H4428H3063H4422H3027H3778H5414H5414H3027H4428H894H1696H6310H6310H5869H7200H5869 5And he shall lead Zedekiah to Babylon, and there shall he be until I visit him [for evil], says the Lord; and though you fight against the Chaldeans, you shall not prosper [why do you thus prophesy]?H3212H6667H894H6485H5002H3068H3898H3778H6743 6And Jeremiah said, The word of the Lord came to me, saying,H3414H559H1697H3068H559 7Behold, Hanamel son of Shallum your uncle shall come to you and say, Buy my field that is in Anathoth, for the right of redemption is yours to buy it.H2601H1121H7967H1730H935H559H7069H7704H6068H4941H1353H7069 8So Hanamel my uncle's son came to me in the court of the guard in accordance with the word of the Lord, and he said to me, I pray you, buy my field that is in Anathoth, which is in the land of Benjamin, for the right of inheritance is yours and the redemption is yours; buy it for yourself. Then I knew that this was the word of the Lord.H2601H1730H1121H935H2691H4307H1697H3068H559H7069H7704H6068H776H1144H4941H3425H1353H7069H3045H1697H3068 9And I bought the field that was in Anathoth from Hanamel my uncle's son and weighed out for him the money--seventeen shekels of silver.H7069H7704H2601H1730H1121H6068H8254H3701H7651H6235H8255H3701 10And I signed the deed and sealed it, called witnesses, and weighed out for him the money on the scales.H3789H5612H2856H5749H5707H8254H3701H3976 11So I took the deed of the purchase--both that which was sealed, containing the terms and conditions, and the copy which was unsealed--H3947H5612H4736H2856H4687H2706H1540 12And I gave the purchase deed to Baruch son of Neriah, the son of Mahseiah, in the sight of Hanamel my uncle's son and the witnesses who signed the purchase deed, in the presence of all the Jews who were sitting in the court of the guard.H5414H5612H4736H1263H1121H5374H1121H4271H5869H2601H1730H5869H5707H3789H5612H4736H5869H3064H3427H2691H4307 13And I charged Baruch before them, saying,H6680H1263H5869H559 14Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Take these deeds, both this purchase deed which is sealed and this unsealed deed, and put them in an earthen vessel, that they may last a long time.H559H3068H6635H430H3478H3947H5612H5612H4736H2856H5612H1540H5414H2789H3627H5975H7227H3117 15For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Houses and fields and vineyards shall be purchased yet again in this land.H559H3068H6635H430H3478H1004H7704H3754H7069H776

Jeremiah Prays and God Explains

16Now when I had delivered the purchase deed to Baruch son of Neriah, I prayed to the Lord, saying:H310H5414H5612H4736H1263H1121H5374H6419H3068H559 17Alas, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! There is nothing too hard {or} too wonderful for You--H162H136H3069H6213H8064H776H1419H3581H5186H2220H1697H6381 18You Who show loving-kindness to thousands but recompense the iniquity of the fathers into the bosoms of their children after them. The great, the mighty God; the Lord of hosts is His name--H6213H2617H505H7999H5771H1H2436H1121H310H1419H1368H410H3068H6635H8034 19Great [are You] in counsel and mighty in deeds, Whose eyes are open to all the ways of the sons of men, to reward {or} repay each one according to his ways and according to the fruit of his doings,H1419H6098H7227H5950H5869H6491H1870H1121H120H5414H376H1870H6529H4611 20Who wrought signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, and even to this day [continues to do so], both in Israel and among other men, and made for Yourself a name, as at this day.H7760H226H4159H776H4714H3117H3478H120H6213H8034H3117 21And You brought forth Your people Israel out of the land of Egypt with signs and wonders, with a strong hand and outstretched arm and with great terror;H3318H5971H3478H776H4714H226H4159H2389H3027H5186H248H1419H4172 22And You gave them this land which You swore to their fathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey;H5414H776H7650H1H5414H776H2100H2461H1706 23And they entered and took possession of it, but they obeyed not Your voice, nor walked in Your law; they have done nothing of all that You commanded them to do. Therefore You have caused all this evil to come upon them.H935H3423H8085H6963H1980H8451H6213H6680H6213H7451H7122 24See the siege mounds [of earth which the foe has heaped against the walls]; they have come up to the city to take it. And the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans who fight against it, because [the people are overcome] by the sword and the famine and the pestilence. What You have spoken has come to pass, and behold, You see it.H5550H935H5892H3920H5892H5414H3027H3778H3898H6440H2719H7458H1698H1696H7200 25Yet, O Lord God, You said to me, Buy the field with money and get witnesses, even though the city is given into the hands of the Chaldeans.H559H136H3069H7069H7704H3701H5749H5707H5892H5414H3027H3778 26Then came the word of the Lord to Jeremiah, saying,H1697H3068H3414H559 27Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh; is there anything too hard for Me?H3068H430H1320H1697H6381 28Therefore thus says the Lord: Behold, I am giving this city into the hands of the Chaldeans and into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, and he shall take it;H559H3068H5414H5892H3027H3778H3027H5019H4428H894H3920 29And the Chaldeans who are fighting against this city shall come in and set this city on fire and burn it, along with the houses on whose roofs incense has been offered to Baal and drink offerings have been poured out to other gods to provoke Me to anger.H3778H3898H5892H935H3341H784H5892H8313H1004H1406H6999H1168H5258H5262H312H430H3707 30For the children of Israel and the children of Judah have done only evil before Me from their youth; for the children of Israel have only provoked Me to anger with the work of their hands [the idols], says the Lord.H1121H3478H1121H3063H6213H7451H5869H5271H1121H3478H3707H4639H3027H5002H3068 31For this city has been to Me a [such a] provocation of My anger and My wrath from the day that they [finished] building it [in the time of Solomon, who was the first Israelite king who turned to idolatry] even to this day that I must remove it from before My face--H5892H639H2534H3117H1129H3117H5493H6440 32Because of all the evil of the children of Israel and of the children of Judah which they have done to provoke Me to anger--they, their kings, their princes, their priests, their prophets, the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.H7451H1121H3478H1121H3063H6213H3707H4428H8269H3548H5030H376H3063H3427H3389 33And they have turned their backs to Me and not their faces; though I taught them persistently, yet they would not listen and receive instruction.H6437H6203H6440H3925H7925H3925H8085H3947H4148 34But they set their abominations [of idol worship] in the house which is called by My Name to defile it.H7760H8251H1004H7121H8034H2930 35And they built the high places [for worship] of Baal in the Valley of Ben-hinnom [son of Hinnom] to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire [in worship also of and] to Molech--which I did not command them, nor did it come into My mind {or} heart that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.H1129H1116H1168H1516H1121H2011H1121H1323H5674H4432H6680H5927H3820H6213H8441H3063H2398 36And now therefore thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, concerning this city of which you say, It shall be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon by sword and by famine and by pestilence:H559H3068H430H3478H5892H559H5414H3027H4428H894H2719H7458H1698 37Behold, I will gather them out of all countries to which I drove them in My anger and in My wrath and in great indignation; I will bring them again to this place, and I will make them dwell safely.H6908H776H5080H639H2534H1419H7110H7725H4725H3427H983 38And they will be My people, and I will be their God.H5971H430 39And I will give them one heart and one way, that they may [reverently] fear Me forever for the good of themselves and of their children after them.H5414H259H3820H259H1870H3372H3117H2896H1121H310 40And I will make an everlasting covenant with them: I will not turn away from following them to do them good, and I will put My [reverential] fear in their hearts, so that they will not depart from Me.H3772H5769H1285H7725H310H3190H5414H3374H3824H5493 41Yes, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will plant them in this land assuredly {and} in truth with My whole heart and with My whole being.H7797H2895H5193H776H571H3820H5315 42For thus says the Lord: As I have brought all this great evil upon this people, so will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised them.H559H3068H935H1419H7451H5971H935H2896H1696 43And fields shall be bought in this land of which you say, It is desolate, without man or beast; it is given into the hands of the Chaldeans.H7704H7069H776H559H8077H120H929H5414H3027H3778 44Men shall buy fields for money and shall sign deeds, seal them, and call witnesses in the land of Benjamin, in the places around 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 South (the Negeb), for I will cause them to be released from their exile, says the Lord.H7069H7704H3701H3789H5612H2856H5749H5707H776H1144H5439H3389H5892H3063H5892H2022H5892H8219H5892H5045H7622H7725H5002H3068
