Trusting in Lying Words

7The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,H1697H3414H3068H559 2"Stand in the gate of the LORD'S house, and proclaim there this word, and say, 'Hear the word of the LORD, all you of Judah who enter in at these gates to worship the LORD!'"H5975H8179H3068H1004H7121H1697H559H8085H1697H3068H3063H935H8179H7812H3068 3Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: "Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place.H559H3068H6635H430H3478H3190H1870H4611H7931H4725 4"Do not trust in these lying words, saying, 'The temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD are these.'H982H8267H1697H559H1964H3068H1964H3068H1964H3068 5"For if you thoroughly amend your ways and your doings, if you thoroughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbor,H3190H3190H1870H4611H6213H6213H4941H376H7453 6"if you do not oppress the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place, or walk after other gods to your hurt,H6231H1616H3490H490H8210H5355H1818H4725H3212H310H312H430H7451 7"then I will cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers forever and ever.H7931H4725H776H5414H1H5704H5769H5769 8"Behold, you trust in lying words that cannot profit.H982H8267H1697H3276 9"Will you steal, murder, commit adultery, swear falsely, burn incense to Baal, and walk after other gods whom you do not know,H1589H7523H5003H7650H8267H6999H1168H1980H310H312H430H3045 10"and then come and stand before Me in this house which is called by My name, and say, 'We are delivered to do all these abominations'?H935H5975H6440H1004H7121H8034H559H5337H6213H8441 11"Has this house, which is called by My name, become a den of thieves in your eyes? Behold, I, even I, have seen it," says the LORD.H1004H7121H8034H4631H6530H5869H7200H5002H3068 12"But go now to My place which was in Shiloh, where I set My name at the first, and see what I did to it because of the wickedness of My people Israel.H3212H4725H7887H7931H8034H7223H7200H6213H6440H7451H5971H3478 13"And now, because you have done all these works," says the LORD, "and I spoke to you, rising up early and speaking, but you did not hear, and I called you, but you did not answer,H6213H4639H5002H3068H1696H7925H1696H8085H7121H6030 14"therefore I will do to the house which is called by My name, in which you trust, and to this place which I gave to you and your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh.H6213H1004H7121H8034H982H4725H5414H1H6213H7887 15"And I will cast you out of My sight, as I have cast out all your brethren—the whole posterity of Ephraim.H7993H6440H7993H251H2233H669 16"Therefore do not pray for this people, nor lift up a cry or prayer for them, nor make intercession to Me; for I will not hear you.H6419H5971H5375H7440H8605H1157H6293H8085 17"Do you not see what they do in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem?H7200H6213H5892H3063H2351H3389 18"The children gather wood, the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven; and they pour out drink offerings to other gods, that they may provoke Me to anger.H1121H3950H6086H1H1197H784H802H3888H1217H6213H3561H4446H8064H5258H5262H312H430H3707 19"Do they provoke Me to anger?" says the LORD. "Do they not provoke themselves, to the shame of their own faces?"H3707H5002H3068H1322H6440 20Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: "Behold, My anger and My fury will be poured out on this place—on man and on beast, on the trees of the field and on the fruit of the ground. And it will burn and not be quenched."H559H136H3069H639H2534H5413H4725H120H929H6086H7704H6529H127H1197H3518 21Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: "Add your burnt offerings to your sacrifices and eat meat.H559H3068H6635H430H3478H5595H5930H2077H398H1320 22"For I did not speak to your fathers, or command them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices.H1696H1H6680H3117H3318H776H4714H1697H5930H2077 23"But this is what I commanded them, saying, 'Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be My people. And walk in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well with you.'H1697H6680H559H8085H6963H430H5971H1980H1870H6680H3190 24"Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but followed the counsels and the dictates of their evil hearts, and went backward and not forward.H8085H5186H241H3212H4156H8307H7451H3820H268H6440 25"Since the day that your fathers came out of the land of Egypt until this day, I have even sent to you all My servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending them.H3117H1H3318H776H4714H3117H7971H5650H5030H3117H7925H7971 26"Yet they did not obey Me or incline their ear, but stiffened their neck. They did worse than their fathers.H8085H5186H241H7185H6203H7489H1 27"Therefore you shall speak all these words to them, but they will not obey you. You shall also call to them, but they will not answer you.H1696H1697H8085H7121H6030

Judgment on Obscene Religion

28"So you shall say to them, 'This is a nation that does not obey the voice of the LORD their God nor receive correction. Truth has perished and has been cut off from their mouth.H559H1471H8085H6963H3068H430H3947H4148H530H6H3772H6310 29'Cut off your hair and cast it away, and take up a lamentation on the desolate heights; for the LORD has rejected and forsaken the generation of His wrath.'H1494H5145H7993H5375H7015H8205H3068H3988H5203H1755H5678 30"For the children of Judah have done evil in My sight," says the LORD. "They have set their abominations in the house which is called by My name, to pollute it.H1121H3063H6213H7451H5869H5002H3068H7760H8251H1004H7121H8034H2930 31"And they have built the high places of Tophet, which is in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire, which I did not command, nor did it come into My heart.H1129H1116H8612H1516H1121H2011H8313H1121H1323H784H6680H5927H3820 32"Therefore behold, the days are coming," says the LORD, "when it will no more be called Tophet, or the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, but the Valley of Slaughter; for they will bury in Tophet until there is no room.H3117H935H5002H3068H559H8612H1516H1121H2011H1516H2028H6912H8612H369H4725 33"The corpses of this people will be food for the birds of the heaven and for the beasts of the earth. And no one will frighten them away.H5038H5971H3978H5775H8064H929H776H2729 34"Then I will cause to cease from the cities of Judah and from the streets of Jerusalem the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride. For the land shall be desolate.H7673H5892H3063H2351H3389H6963H8342H6963H8057H6963H2860H6963H3618H776H2723
