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 by 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 4"Do not trust in deceptive words, saying, '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 practice justice between a man and his neighbor,H3190H3190H1870H4611H6213H6213H4941H376H7453 6[if] you do not oppress the alien, the orphan, or the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place, nor walk after other gods to your own ruin,H6231H1616H3490H490H8210H5355H1818H4725H3212H310H312H430H7451 7then I will let you dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers forever and ever.H7931H4725H776H5414H1H5704H5769H5769 8"Behold, you are trusting in deceptive words to no avail.H982H8267H1697H3276 9"Will you steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and offer sacrifices to Baal, and walk after other gods that you have not known,H1589H7523H5003H7650H8267H6999H1168H1980H310H312H430H3045 10then come and stand before Me in this house, which is called by My name, and say, 'We are delivered!'— that you may do all these abominations?H935H5975H6440H1004H7121H8034H559H5337H6213H8441 11"Has this house, which is called by My name, become a den of robbers in your sight? Behold, I, even I, have seen [it,"] declares the LORD.H1004H7121H8034H4631H6530H5869H7200H5002H3068 12"But go now to My place which was in Shiloh, where I made My name dwell 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 things," declares 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 14therefore, I will do to the house which is called by My name, in which you trust, and to the place which I gave you and your fathers, as I did to Shiloh.H6213H1004H7121H8034H982H4725H5414H1H6213H7887 15"And I will cast you out of My sight, as I have cast out all your brothers, all the offspring of Ephraim.H7993H6440H7993H251H2233H669 16"As for you, do not pray for this people, and do not lift up cry or prayer for them, and do not intercede with Me; for I do not hear you.H6419H5971H5375H7440H8605H1157H6293H8085 17"Do you not see what they are doing in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem?H7200H6213H5892H3063H2351H3389 18"The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead dough to make cakes for the queen of heaven; and [they] pour out libations to other gods in order to spite Me.H1121H3950H6086H1H1197H784H802H3888H1217H6213H3561H4446H8064H5258H5262H312H430H3707 19"Do they spite Me?" declares the LORD. "Is it not themselves [they spite,] 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 on beast and 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 flesh.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 and sacrifices.H1696H1H6680H3117H3318H776H4714H1697H5930H2077 23"But this is what I commanded them, saying, 'Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you will be My people; and you will walk in all the way which I command you, that it may be well with you.'H1697H6680H559H8085H6963H430H5971H1980H1870H6680H3190 24"Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but walked in [their own] counsels [and] in the stubbornness of their evil heart, 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 sent you all My servants the prophets, daily rising early and sending [them.]H3117H1H3318H776H4714H3117H7971H5650H5030H3117H7925H7971 26"Yet they did not listen to Me or incline their ear, but stiffened their neck; they did evil more than their fathers.H8085H5186H241H7185H6203H7489H1 27"And you shall speak all these words to them, but they will not listen to you; and you shall call to them, but they will not answer you.H1696H1697H8085H7121H6030 28"And you shall say to them, 'This is the nation that did not obey the voice of the LORD their God or accept 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 bare heights; For the LORD has rejected and forsaken The generation of His wrath.'H1494H5145H7993H5375H7015H8205H3068H3988H5203H1755H5678 30"For the sons of Judah have done that which is evil in My sight," declares the LORD, "they have set their detestable things in the house which is called by My name, to defile it.H1121H3063H6213H7451H5869H5002H3068H7760H8251H1004H7121H8034H2930 31"And 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, and it did not come into My mind.H1129H1116H8612H1516H1121H2011H8313H1121H1323H784H6680H5927H3820 32"Therefore, behold, 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 the Slaughter; for they will bury in Topheth because there is no [other] place.H3117H935H5002H3068H559H8612H1516H1121H2011H1516H2028H6912H8612H369H4725 33"And the dead bodies of this people will be food for the birds of the sky, and for the beasts of the earth; and no one will frighten [them away.]H5038H5971H3978H5775H8064H929H776H2729 34"Then I will make to cease from the cities of Judah and from the streets of Jerusalem the voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride; for the land will become a ruin.H7673H5892H3063H2351H3389H6963H8342H6963H8057H6963H2860H6963H3618H776H2723
