Evil in the Land

7The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD: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 men of Judah who enter these gates to worship the LORD.H5975H8179H3068H1004H7121H1697H559H8085H1697H3068H3063H935H8179H7812H3068 3Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: Amend your ways and your deeds, and I will let you dwell in this place.H559H3068H6635H430H3478H3190H1870H4611H7931H4725 4Do not trust in these deceptive words: 'This is the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD.'H982H8267H1697H559H1964H3068H1964H3068H1964H3068 5"For if you truly amend your ways and your deeds, if you truly execute justice one with another,H3190H3190H1870H4611H6213H6213H4941H376H7453 6if you do not oppress the sojourner, the fatherless, or the widow, or shed innocent blood in this place, and if you do not go after other gods to your own harm,H6231H1616H3490H490H8210H5355H1818H4725H3212H310H312H430H7451 7then I will let you dwell in this place, in the land that I gave of old to your fathers forever.H7931H4725H776H5414H1H5704H5769H5769 8"Behold, you trust in deceptive words to no avail.H982H8267H1697H3276 9Will you steal, murder, commit adultery, swear falsely, make offerings to Baal, and go after other gods that you have not known,H1589H7523H5003H7650H8267H6999H1168H1980H310H312H430H3045 10and then come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, 'We are delivered!'—only to go on doing all these abominations?H935H5975H6440H1004H7121H8034H559H5337H6213H8441 11Has this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, I myself have seen it, declares the LORD.H1004H7121H8034H4631H6530H5869H7200H5002H3068 12Go now to my place that was in Shiloh, where I made my name dwell at first, and see what I did to it because of the evil of my people Israel.H3212H4725H7887H7931H8034H7223H7200H6213H6440H7451H5971H3478 13And now, because you have done all these things, declares the LORD, and when I spoke to you persistently you did not listen, and when I called you, you did not answer,H6213H4639H5002H3068H1696H7925H1696H8085H7121H6030 14therefore I will do to the house that is called by my name, and in which you trust, and to the place that I gave to you and to your fathers, as I did to Shiloh.H6213H1004H7121H8034H982H4725H5414H1H6213H7887 15And I will cast you out of my sight, as I cast out all your kinsmen, all the offspring of Ephraim.H7993H6440H7993H251H2233H669 16"As for you, do not pray for this people, or lift up a cry or prayer for them, and do not intercede with me, for I will not hear you.H6419H5971H5375H7440H8605H1157H6293H8085 17Do you not see what they are doing in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem?H7200H6213H5892H3063H2351H3389 18The children gather wood, the fathers kindle fire, and the women knead dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven. And they pour out drink offerings to other gods, to provoke me to anger.H1121H3950H6086H1H1197H784H802H3888H1217H6213H3561H4446H8064H5258H5262H312H430H3707 19Is it I whom they provoke? declares the LORD. Is it not themselves, to their own shame?H3707H5002H3068H1322H6440 20Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: behold, my anger and my wrath will be poured out on this place, upon man and beast, upon the trees of the field and the fruit of the ground; 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 the flesh.H559H3068H6635H430H3478H5595H5930H2077H398H1320 22For in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, I did not speak to your fathers or command them concerning burnt offerings and sacrifices.H1696H1H6680H3117H3318H776H4714H1697H5930H2077 23But this command I gave them: 'Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be my people. And walk in all the way that I command you, that it may be well with you.'H1697H6680H559H8085H6963H430H5971H1980H1870H6680H3190 24But they did not obey or incline their ear, but walked in their own counsels and the stubbornness of their evil hearts, and went backward and not forward.H8085H5186H241H3212H4156H8307H7451H3820H268H6440 25From the day that your fathers came out of the land of Egypt to this day, I have persistently sent all my servants the prophets to them, day after day.H3117H1H3318H776H4714H3117H7971H5650H5030H3117H7925H7971 26Yet they did not listen to me or incline their ear, but stiffened their neck. They did worse than their fathers.H8085H5186H241H7185H6203H7489H1 27"So you shall speak all these words to them, but they will not listen to you. You shall call to them, but they will not answer you.H1696H1697H8085H7121H6030 28And you shall say to them, 'This is the nation that did not obey the voice of the LORD their God, and did not accept discipline; truth has perished; it is cut off from their lips.H559H1471H8085H6963H3068H430H3947H4148H530H6H3772H6310 29"'Cut off your hair and cast it away; raise a lamentation on the bare heights, for the LORD has rejected and forsaken the generation of his wrath.'H1494H5145H7993H5375H7015H8205H3068H3988H5203H1755H5678

The Valley of Slaughter

30"For the sons of Judah have done evil in my sight, declares the LORD. They have set their detestable things in the house that is called by my name, to defile it.H1121H3063H6213H7451H5869H5002H3068H7760H8251H1004H7121H8034H2930 31And they have built the high places of Topheth, 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 mind.H1129H1116H8612H1516H1121H2011H8313H1121H1323H784H6680H5927H3820 32Therefore, behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when it will no more be called Topheth, or the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, but the Valley of Slaughter; for they will bury in Topheth, because there is no room elsewhere.H3117H935H5002H3068H559H8612H1516H1121H2011H1516H2028H6912H8612H369H4725 33And the dead bodies of this people will be food for the birds of the air, and for the beasts of the earth, and none will frighten them away.H5038H5971H3978H5775H8064H929H776H2729 34And I will silence in the cities of Judah and in 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 become a waste.H7673H5892H3063H2351H3389H6963H8342H6963H8057H6963H2860H6963H3618H776H2723
