Jeremiah 7
Amplified Bible
7THE WORD that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,H1697H3414H3068H559 2Stand 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 4Trust not in the lying words [of the false prophets who maintain that God will protect Jerusalem because His temple is there], saying, This is the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord.H982H8267H1697H559H1964H3068H1964H3068H1964H3068 5For if you thoroughly amend your ways and your doings, if you thoroughly {and} truly execute justice between every man and his neighbor,H3190H3190H1870H4611H6213H6213H4941H376H7453 6If you do not oppress the transient {and} the alien, the fatherless, and the widow or shed innocent blood [by oppression and by judicial murders] in [Jerusalem] or go after other gods to your own hurt,H6231H1616H3490H490H8210H5355H1818H4725H3212H310H312H430H7451 7Then I will cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave of old to your fathers to dwell in forever.H7931H4725H776H5414H1H5704H5769H5769 8Behold, you trust in lying words that cannot benefit [so that you do not profit].H982H8267H1697H3276 9Will you steal, murder, commit adultery, swear falsely, burn incense to Baal, and go after other gods that you have not known,H1589H7523H5003H7650H8267H6999H1168H1980H310H312H430H3045 10And [then dare to] come and stand before Me in this house, which is called by My Name, and say, [By the discharge of this religious formality] we are set free!--only to go on with this wickedness {and} these abominations?H935H5975H6440H1004H7121H8034H559H5337H6213H8441 11Has this house, which is called by My Name, become a den of robbers in your eyes [a place of retreat for you between acts of violence]? Behold, I Myself have seen it, says the Lord.H1004H7121H8034H4631H6530H5869H7200H5002H3068 12But go now to My place which was in Shiloh [in Ephraim], where I set My Name at the first, and see what I did to it for the wickedness of My people Israel.H3212H4725H7887H7931H8034H7223H7200H6213H6440H7451H5971H3478 13And now, because you have done all these things, says the Lord, and [because] when I spoke to you persistently [even rising up early and speaking], you did not listen, and when I called you, you did not answer,H6213H4639H5002H3068H1696H7925H1696H8085H7121H6030 14Therefore will I do to this house (the temple), which is called by My Name {and} in which you trust, to the place which 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 have cast out all your brethren, even the whole posterity of Ephraim.H7993H6440H7993H251H2233H669 16Therefore do not pray for this people [of Judah] or lift up a cry or entreaty for them or make intercession to Me, for I will not listen to {or} 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 the fire, and the women knead the 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 19Am I the One Whom they provoke to anger? says the Lord. Is it not themselves [whom they provoke], to their own confusion {and} vexation {and} to their own shame?H3707H5002H3068H1322H6440 20Therefore thus says the Lord God: Behold, My anger and My wrath will be poured out on this place, on man and beast, on 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 [if you will. It will avail you nothing].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 or sacrifices.H1696H1H6680H3117H3318H776H4714H1697H5930H2077 23But this thing I did command them: Listen to {and} obey My voice, and I will be your God and you will be My people; and walk in the whole way that I command you, that it may be well with you.H1697H6680H559H8085H6963H430H5971H1980H1870H6680H3190 24But they would not listen to {and} obey Me or bend their ear [to Me], but followed the counsels {and} the stubborn promptings of their own evil hearts {and} minds, and they turned their backs {and} went in reverse instead of forward.H8085H5186H241H3212H4156H8307H7451H3820H268H6440 25Since the day that your fathers came forth out of the land of Egypt to this day, I have persistently sent to you all My servants the prophets, sending them daily, early and late.H3117H1H3318H776H4714H3117H7971H5650H5030H3117H7925H7971 26Yet the people would not listen to {and} obey Me or bend their ears [to Me], but stiffened their necks and behaved worse than their fathers.H8085H5186H241H7185H6203H7489H1 27Speak all these words to them, but they will not listen to {and} obey you; also call to them, but they will not answer you.H1696H1697H8085H7121H6030 28Yet you shall say to them, This is the nation that did not obey the voice of the Lord their God or receive instruction {and} correction {and} warning; truth {and} faithfulness have perished and have completely vanished from their mouths.H559H1471H8085H6963H3068H430H3947H4148H530H6H3772H6310 29Cut off your hair [your crown, O Jerusalem] and cast it away, and take up a lamentation on the bare heights, for the Lord has rejected and forsaken the generation of His wrath.H1494H5145H7993H5375H7015H8205H3068H3988H5203H1755H5678 30For the children of Judah have done evil in My sight, says the Lord; they have set their abominations (extremely disgusting and shamefully vile things) in the house which is called by My Name to defile it.H1121H3063H6213H7451H5869H5002H3068H7760H8251H1004H7121H8034H2930 31And they have built the high places of Topheth, which is in the Valley of Ben-hinnom [son of Hinnom], to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire [in honor of Molech, the fire god]--which I did not command, nor did it come into My mind {or} heart.H1129H1116H8612H1516H1121H2011H8313H1121H1323H784H6680H5927H3820 32Therefore, behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when it shall no more be called Topheth or the Valley of Ben-hinnom [son of Hinnom], but the Valley of Slaughter, for [in bloody warfare] they will bury in Topheth till there is no more room {and} no place else to bury.H3117H935H5002H3068H559H8612H1516H1121H2011H1516H2028H6912H8612H369H4725 33And the dead bodies of this people will be meat for the fowls of the air and for the beasts of the earth, and none will frighten them away.H5038H5971H3978H5775H8064H929H776H2729 34Then will I 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 will become a waste.H7673H5892H3063H2351H3389H6963H8342H6963H8057H6963H2860H6963H3618H776H2723
