Jeremiah 44
English Standard Version
44The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the Judeans who lived in the land of Egypt, at Migdol, at Tahpanhes, at Memphis, and in the land of Pathros,H1697H3414H3064H3427H776H4714H3427H4024H8471H5297H776H6624H559 2"Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: You have seen all the disaster that I brought upon Jerusalem and upon all the cities of Judah. Behold, this day they are a desolation, and no one dwells in them,H559H3068H6635H430H3478H7200H7451H935H3389H5892H3063H3117H2723H3427 3because of the evil that they committed, provoking me to anger, in that they went to make offerings and serve other gods that they knew not, neither they, nor you, nor your fathers.H6440H7451H6213H3707H3212H6999H5647H312H430H3045H1 4Yet I persistently sent to you all my servants the prophets, saying, 'Oh, do not do this abomination that I hate!'H7971H5650H5030H7925H7971H559H6213H8441H1697H8130 5But they did not listen or incline their ear, to turn from their evil and make no offerings to other gods.H8085H5186H241H7725H7451H6999H312H430 6Therefore my wrath and my anger were poured out and kindled in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem, and they became a waste and a desolation, as at this day.H2534H639H5413H1197H5892H3063H2351H3389H2723H8077H3117 7And now thus says the LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel: Why do you commit this great evil against yourselves, to cut off from you man and woman, infant and child, from the midst of Judah, leaving you no remnant?H559H3068H430H6635H430H3478H6213H1419H7451H5315H3772H376H802H5768H3243H8432H3063H3498H7611 8Why do you provoke me to anger with the works of your hands, making offerings to other gods in the land of Egypt where you have come to live, so that you may be cut off and become a curse and a taunt among all the nations of the earth?H3707H4639H3027H6999H312H430H776H4714H935H1481H3772H7045H2781H1471H776 9Have you forgotten the evil of your fathers, the evil of the kings of Judah, the evil of their wives, your own evil, and the evil of your wives, which they committed in the land of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem?H7911H7451H1H7451H4428H3063H7451H802H7451H7451H802H6213H776H3063H2351H3389 10They have not humbled themselves even to this day, nor have they feared, nor walked in my law and my statutes that I set before you and before your fathers.H1792H3117H3372H1980H8451H2708H5414H6440H6440H1 11"Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: Behold, I will set my face against you for harm, to cut off all Judah.H559H3068H6635H430H3478H7760H6440H7451H3772H3063 12I will take the remnant of Judah who have set their faces to come to the land of Egypt to live, and they shall all be consumed. In the land of Egypt they shall fall; by the sword and by famine they shall be consumed. From the least to the greatest, they shall die by the sword and by famine, and they shall become an oath, a horror, a curse, and a taunt.H3947H7611H3063H7760H6440H935H776H4714H1481H8552H5307H776H4714H8552H2719H7458H4191H6996H1419H2719H7458H423H8047H7045H2781 13I will punish those who dwell in the land of Egypt, as I have punished Jerusalem, with the sword, with famine, and with pestilence,H6485H3427H776H4714H6485H3389H2719H7458H1698 14so that none of the remnant of Judah who have come to live in the land of Egypt shall escape or survive or return to the land of Judah, to which they desire to return to dwell there. For they shall not return, except some fugitives."H7611H3063H935H776H4714H1481H6412H8300H7725H776H3063H5375H5315H7725H3427H7725H6405 15Then all the men who knew that their wives had made offerings to other gods, and all the women who stood by, a great assembly, all the people who lived in Pathros in the land of Egypt, answered Jeremiah:H582H3045H802H6999H312H430H802H5975H1419H6951H5971H3427H776H4714H6624H6030H3414H559 16"As for the word that you have spoken to us in the name of the LORD, we will not listen to you.H1697H1696H8034H3068H8085 17But we will do everything that we have vowed, make offerings to the queen of heaven and pour out drink offerings to her, as we did, both we and our fathers, our kings and our officials, in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem. For then we had plenty of food, and prospered, and saw no disaster.H6213H6213H1697H3318H6310H6999H4446H8064H5258H5262H6213H1H4428H8269H5892H3063H2351H3389H7646H3899H2896H7200H7451 18But since we left off making offerings to the queen of heaven and pouring out drink offerings to her, we have lacked everything and have been consumed by the sword and by famine."H2308H6999H4446H8064H5258H5262H2637H8552H2719H7458 19And the women said, "When we made offerings to the queen of heaven and poured out drink offerings to her, was it without our husbands' approval that we made cakes for her bearing her image and poured out drink offerings to her?"H6999H4446H8064H5258H5262H6213H3561H6087H5258H5262H1107H582 20Then Jeremiah said to all the people, men and women, all the people who had given him this answer:H3414H559H5971H1397H802H5971H1697H6030H559 21"As for the offerings that you offered in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem, you and your fathers, your kings and your officials, and the people of the land, did not the LORD remember them? Did it not come into his mind?H7002H6999H5892H3063H2351H3389H1H4428H8269H5971H776H3068H2142H5927H3820 22The LORD could no longer bear your evil deeds and the abominations that you committed. Therefore your land has become a desolation and a waste and a curse, without inhabitant, as it is this day.H3068H3201H5375H6440H7455H4611H6440H8441H6213H776H2723H8047H7045H3427H3117 23It is because you made offerings and because you sinned against the LORD and did not obey the voice of the LORD or walk in his law and in his statutes and in his testimonies that this disaster has happened to you, as at this day."H6440H834H6999H2398H3068H8085H6963H3068H1980H8451H2708H5715H7451H7122H3117 24Jeremiah said to all the people and all the women, "Hear the word of the LORD, all you of Judah who are in the land of Egypt.H3414H559H5971H802H8085H1697H3068H3063H776H4714 25Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: You and your wives have declared with your mouths, and have fulfilled it with your hands, saying, 'We will surely perform our vows that we have made, to make offerings to the queen of heaven and to pour out drink offerings to her.' Then confirm your vows and perform your vows!H559H3068H6635H430H3478H559H802H1696H6310H4390H3027H559H6213H6213H5088H5087H6999H4446H8064H5258H5262H6965H6965H5088H6213H6213H5088 26Therefore hear the word of the LORD, all you of Judah who dwell in the land of Egypt: Behold, I have sworn by my great name, says the LORD, that my name shall no more be invoked by the mouth of any man of Judah in all the land of Egypt, saying, 'As the Lord GOD lives.'H8085H1697H3068H3063H3427H776H4714H7650H1419H8034H559H3068H8034H7121H6310H376H3063H776H4714H559H136H3069H2416 27Behold, I am watching over them for disaster and not for good. All the men of Judah who are in the land of Egypt shall be consumed by the sword and by famine, until there is an end of them.H8245H7451H2896H376H3063H776H4714H8552H2719H7458H3615 28And those who escape the sword shall return from the land of Egypt to the land of Judah, few in number; and all the remnant of Judah, who came to the land of Egypt to live, shall know whose word will stand, mine or theirs.H4962H4557H6412H2719H7725H776H4714H776H3063H7611H3063H935H776H4714H1481H3045H1697H6965 29This shall be the sign to you, declares the LORD, that I will punish you in this place, in order that you may know that my words will surely stand against you for harm:H226H5002H3068H6485H4725H3045H1697H6965H6965H7451 30Thus says the LORD, Behold, I will give Pharaoh Hophra king of Egypt into the hand of his enemies and into the hand of those who seek his life, as I gave Zedekiah king of Judah into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, who was his enemy and sought his life."H559H3068H5414H6548H4428H4714H3027H341H3027H1245H5315H5414H6667H4428H3063H3027H5019H4428H894H341H1245H5315
