Jeremiah

Chapter 29

  1. 1. Now these are the words
    H1697
    of the letter
    H5612
    that Jeremiah
    H3414
    the prophet
    H5030
    sent
    H7971
    from Jerusalem
    H3389
    unto the residue
    H3499
    of the elders
    H2205
    which were carried away captives,
    H1473
    and to the priests,
    H3548
    and to the prophets,
    H5030
    and to all the people
    H5971
    whom Nebuchadnezzar
    H5019
    had carried away captive
    H1540
    from Jerusalem
    H3389
    to Babylon;
    H894
  2. 2. (After
    H310
    that Jeconiah
    H3204
    the king,
    H4428
    and the queen,
    H1377
    and the eunuchs,
    H5631
    the princes
    H8269
    of Judah
    H3063
    and Jerusalem,
    H3389
    and the carpenters,
    H2796
    and the smiths,
    H4525
    were departed
    H3318
    from Jerusalem;)
    H3389
  3. 3. By the hand
    H3027
    of Elasah
    H501
    the son
    H1121
    of Shaphan,
    H8227
    and Gemariah
    H1587
    the son
    H1121
    of Hilkiah,
    H2518
    (whom Zedekiah
    H6667
    king
    H4428
    of Judah
    H3063
    sent
    H7971
    unto Babylon
    H894
    to Nebuchadnezzar
    H5019
    king
    H4428
    of Babylon)
    H894
    saying,
    H559
  4. 4. Thus saith
    H559
    the LORD
    H3068
    of hosts,
    H6635
    the God
    H430
    of Israel,
    H3478
    unto all that are carried away captives,
    H1473
    whom I have caused to be carried away
    H1540
    from Jerusalem
    H3389
    unto Babylon;
    H894
  5. 5. Build
    H1129
    ye houses,
    H1004
    and dwell
    H3427
    in them; and plant
    H5193
    gardens,
    H1593
    and eat
    H398
    the fruit
    H6529
    of them;
  6. 6. Take
    H3947
    ye wives,
    H802
    and beget
    H3205
    sons
    H1121
    and daughters;
    H1323
    and take
    H3947
    wives
    H802
    for your sons,
    H1121
    and give
    H5414
    your daughters
    H1323
    to husbands,
    H582
    that they may bear
    H3205
    sons
    H1121
    and daughters;
    H1121
    that ye may be increased
    H7235
    there, and not diminished.
    H4591
  7. 7. And seek
    H1875
    the peace
    H7965
    of the city
    H5892
    whither I have caused you to be carried away captives,
    H1540
    and pray
    H6419
    unto the LORD
    H3068
    for it: for in the peace
    H7965
    thereof shall ye have peace.
    H7965
  8. 8. For thus saith
    H559
    the LORD
    H3068
    of hosts,
    H6635
    the God
    H430
    of Israel;
    H3478
    Let not your prophets
    H5030
    and your diviners,
    H7080
    that be in the midst
    H7130
    of you, deceive
    H5377
    you, neither hearken
    H8085
    to your dreams
    H2472
    which ye cause to be dreamed.
    H2492
  9. 9. For they prophesy
    H5012
    falsely
    H8267
    unto you in my name:
    H8034
    I have not sent
    H7971
    them, saith
    H5002
    the LORD.
    H3068
  10. 10. For thus saith
    H559
    the LORD,
    H3068
    That after
    H6310
    seventy
    H7657
    years
    H8141
    be accomplished
    H4390
    at Babylon
    H894
    I will visit
    H6485
    you, and perform
    H6965
    my good
    H2896
    word
    H1697
    toward you, in causing you to return
    H7725
    to this place.
    H4725
  11. 11. For I know
    H3045
    the thoughts
    H4284
    that I think
    H2803
    toward you, saith
    H5002
    the LORD,
    H3068
    thoughts
    H4284
    of peace,
    H7965
    and not of evil,
    H7451
    to give
    H5414
    you an expected
    H8615
    end.
    H319
  12. 12. Then shall ye call
    H7121
    upon me, and ye shall go
    H1980
    and pray
    H6419
    unto me, and I will hearken
    H8085
    unto you.
  13. 13. And ye shall seek
    H1245
    me, and find
    H4672
    me, when ye shall search
    H1875
    for me with all your heart.
    H3824
  14. 14. And I will be found
    H4672
    of you, saith
    H5002
    the LORD:
    H3068
    and I will turn away
    H7725
    your captivity,
    H7622
    H7622
    and I will gather
    H6908
    you from all the nations,
    H1471
    and from all the places
    H4725
    whither I have driven
    H5080
    you, saith
    H5002
    the LORD;
    H3068
    and I will bring you again
    H7725
    into the place
    H4725
    whence I caused you to be carried away captive.
    H1540
  15. 15. Because ye have said,
    H559
    The LORD
    H3068
    hath raised us up
    H6965
    prophets
    H5030
    in Babylon;
    H894
  16. 16. Know that thus saith
    H559
    the LORD
    H3068
    of the king
    H4428
    that sitteth
    H3427
    upon the throne
    H3678
    of David,
    H1732
    and of all the people
    H5971
    that dwelleth
    H3427
    in this city,
    H5892
    and of your brethren
    H251
    that are not gone forth
    H3318
    with you into captivity;
    H1473
  17. 17. Thus saith
    H559
    the LORD
    H3068
    of hosts;
    H6635
    Behold, I will send
    H7971
    upon them the sword,
    H2719
    the famine,
    H7458
    and the pestilence,
    H1698
    and will make
    H5414
    them like vile
    H8182
    figs,
    H8384
    that cannot be eaten,
    H398
    they are so evil.
    H7455
  18. 18. And I will persecute
    H7291
    them
    H310
    with the sword,
    H2719
    with the famine,
    H7458
    and with the pestilence,
    H1698
    and will deliver
    H5414
    them to be removed
    H2189
    H2113
    to all the kingdoms
    H4467
    of the earth,
    H776
    to be a curse,
    H423
    and an astonishment,
    H8047
    and an hissing,
    H8322
    and a reproach,
    H2781
    among all the nations
    H1471
    whither I have driven
    H5080
    them:
  19. 19. Because they have not hearkened
    H8085
    to my words,
    H1697
    saith
    H5002
    the LORD,
    H3068
    which I sent
    H7971
    unto them by my servants
    H5650
    the prophets,
    H5030
    rising up early
    H7925
    and sending
    H7971
    them; but ye would not hear,
    H8085
    saith
    H5002
    the LORD.
    H3068
  20. 20. Hear
    H8085
    ye therefore the word
    H1697
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    all ye of the captivity,
    H1473
    whom I have sent
    H7971
    from Jerusalem
    H3389
    to Babylon:
    H894
  21. 21. Thus saith
    H559
    the LORD
    H3068
    of hosts,
    H6635
    the God
    H430
    of Israel,
    H3478
    of Ahab
    H256
    the son
    H1121
    of Kolaiah,
    H6964
    and of Zedekiah
    H6667
    the son
    H1121
    of Maaseiah,
    H4641
    which prophesy
    H5012
    a lie
    H8267
    unto you in my name;
    H8034
    Behold, I will deliver
    H5414
    them into the hand
    H3027
    of Nebuchadrezzar
    H5019
    king
    H4428
    of Babylon;
    H894
    and he shall slay
    H5221
    them before your eyes;
    H5869
  22. 22. And of them shall be taken up
    H3947
    a curse
    H7045
    by all the captivity
    H1546
    of Judah
    H3063
    which are in Babylon,
    H894
    saying,
    H559
    The LORD
    H3068
    make
    H7760
    thee like Zedekiah
    H6667
    and like Ahab,
    H256
    whom the king
    H4428
    of Babylon
    H894
    roasted
    H7033
    in the fire;
    H784
  23. 23. Because they have committed
    H6213
    villany
    H5039
    in Israel,
    H3478
    and have committed
    H6213
    adultery
    H5003
    with their neighbours'
    H7453
    wives,
    H802
    and have spoken
    H1696
    lying
    H8267
    words
    H1697
    in my name,
    H8034
    which I have not commanded
    H6680
    them; even I know,
    H3045
    and am a witness,
    H5707
    saith
    H5002
    the LORD.
    H3068
  24. 24. Thus shalt thou also speak
    H559
    to Shemaiah
    H8098
    the Nehelamite,
    H5161
    saying,
    H559
  25. 25. Thus speaketh
    H559
    the LORD
    H3068
    of hosts,
    H6635
    the God
    H430
    of Israel,
    H3478
    saying,
    H559
    Because thou hast sent
    H7971
    letters
    H5612
    in thy name
    H8034
    unto all the people
    H5971
    that are at Jerusalem,
    H3389
    and to Zephaniah
    H6846
    the son
    H1121
    of Maaseiah
    H4641
    the priest,
    H3548
    and to all the priests,
    H3548
    saying,
    H559
  26. 26. The LORD
    H3068
    hath made
    H5414
    thee priest
    H3548
    in the stead of Jehoiada
    H3077
    the priest,
    H3548
    that ye should be officers
    H6496
    in the house
    H1004
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    for every man
    H376
    that is mad,
    H7696
    and maketh himself a prophet,
    H5012
    that thou shouldest put
    H5414
    him in prison,
    H4115
    and in the stocks.
    H6729
  27. 27. Now therefore why hast thou not reproved
    H1605
    Jeremiah
    H3414
    of Anathoth,
    H6069
    which maketh himself a prophet
    H5012
    to you?
  28. 28. For therefore he sent
    H7971
    unto us in Babylon,
    H894
    saying,
    H559
    This
    H1931
    captivity is long:
    H752
    build
    H1129
    ye houses,
    H1004
    and dwell
    H3427
    in them; and plant
    H5193
    gardens,
    H1593
    and eat
    H398
    the fruit
    H6529
    of them.
  29. 29. And Zephaniah
    H6846
    the priest
    H3548
    read
    H7121
    this letter
    H5612
    in the ears
    H241
    of Jeremiah
    H3414
    the prophet.
    H5030
  30. 30. Then came the word
    H1697
    of the LORD
    H3068
    unto Jeremiah,
    H3414
    saying,
    H559
  31. 31. Send
    H7971
    to all them of the captivity,
    H1473
    saying,
    H559
    Thus saith
    H559
    the LORD
    H3068
    concerning Shemaiah
    H8098
    the Nehelamite;
    H5161
    Because that Shemaiah
    H8098
    hath prophesied
    H5012
    unto you, and I sent
    H7971
    him not, and he caused you to trust
    H982
    in a lie:
    H8267
  32. 32. Therefore thus saith
    H559
    the LORD;
    H3068
    Behold, I will punish
    H6485
    Shemaiah
    H8098
    the Nehelamite,
    H5161
    and his seed:
    H2233
    he shall not have a man
    H376
    to dwell
    H3427
    among
    H8432
    this people;
    H5971
    neither shall he behold
    H7200
    the good
    H2896
    that I will do
    H6213
    for my people,
    H5971
    saith
    H5002
    the LORD;
    H3068
    because he hath taught
    H1696
    rebellion
    H5627
    against the LORD.
    H3068
