Ezekiel 28

Eze 28:1 And the Word of Jehovah was to me, saying,
Eze 28:2 Son of man, say to the ruler of Tyre, So says the Lord Jehovah, Because your heart is lifted up, and you have said, I am a god, I sit in the seat of gods, in the heart of the seas; yet you are a man, and not God, though you give your heart as the heart of gods.
Eze 28:3 Behold, you are wiser than Daniel. Every one of the secret things are not hidden to you.
Eze 28:4 With your wisdom and with your understanding you have made riches for yourself, and have worked gold and silver into your treasuries.
Eze 28:5 By your great wisdom, by your trade you have multiplied your riches, and your heart is lifted up because of your riches.
Eze 28:6 So the Lord Jehovah says this: Because you have given your heart as the heart of gods,
Eze 28:7 behold, so I will bring on you awesome strangers of the nations. And they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom and will defile your splendor.
Eze 28:8 They will cause you to go down to the Pit, and you shall die the deaths of the slain in the heart of the seas.
Eze 28:9 Saying, do you say, I am of the gods before him who strikes you? But you are a man, and not God, in the hands of him who pierces you.
Eze 28:10 You shall die the deaths of the uncircumcised, by the hand of strangers. For I have spoken, says the Lord Jehovah.
Eze 28:11 And the Word of Jehovah was to me, saying,
Eze 28:12 Son of man, lift up a lament over the king of Tyre, and say to him, So says the Lord Jehovah: You seal the measure, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
Eze 28:13 You have been in Eden, the garden of God. Every precious stone was your covering; the ruby, the topaz, and the jasper, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the turquoise, and the carbuncle, and gold; the workmanship of your tambourines and of your flutes in you. In the day you were created, they were prepared.
Eze 28:14 You were the anointed cherub that covers, and I had put you in the holy heights of God, where you were. You walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
Eze 28:15 You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, until iniquity was found in you.
Eze 28:16 By the multitude of your trade, they filled your midst with violence, and you sinned. So I cast you defiled from the height of God, and I destroyed you, O covering cherub, from among the stones of fire.
Eze 28:17 Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. I have cast you to the ground. I will put you before kings, that they may see you.
Eze 28:18 By the host of your iniquities, by the iniquity of your trade, you have defiled your holy places. So I brought a fire from your midst and it shall devour you, and I will give you for ashes on the earth in the sight of all who see you.
Eze 28:19 All who know you among the peoples shall be appalled at you. You shall be terrors, and you will not be forever.
Eze 28:20 And the Word of Jehovah was to me, saying,
Eze 28:21 Son of man, set your face against Sidon and prophesy against her,
Eze 28:22 and say, So says the Lord Jehovah, Behold, I am against you, O Sidon, and I will be glorified in your midst. And they shall know that I am Jehovah when I have done judgments in her and shall be sanctified by her.
Eze 28:23 And I will send a plague into her, and blood into her streets. And the slain will fall in her midst by the sword, on her from all around. And they shall know that I am Jehovah.
Eze 28:24 And there will not be a pricking brier or a painful thorn to the house of Israel any more from all who surround them, those who hate them. And they shall know that I am the Lord Jehovah.
Eze 28:25 So says the Lord Jehovah: When I have gathered the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are dispersed, and have been sanctified in them in the sight of the nations, then they shall dwell on their land which I have given to My servant Jacob.
Eze 28:26 And they shall dwell in it securely and shall build houses and plant vineyards. Yes, they shall dwell securely, when I have done judgments on all those who hate them round about them. And they shall know that I am Jehovah their God.

Eze 27:1 And the Word of Jehovah was to me, saying,
Eze 27:2 And you, son of man, lift up a lament in Tyre.

Eze 27:27 Your wealth and your wares and your goods, your seamen and your sailors making strong your seams, and the traders of your goods, and all your men of war who are in you, and all your assembly in your midst, shall fall into the heart of the seas in the day of your ruin.
Eze 27:28 At the sound of the cry of your sailors the pasture lands will shake.
Eze 27:29 And all who handle the oar shall come down from their ships, the seamen, all the sailors of the sea. They shall stand on the land,
Eze 27:30 and will make heard their voice against you, and will cry bitterly, and will cause dust to go up on their heads; they will wallow in the ashes.
Eze 27:31 And they shall be bald for you and gird with sackcloth; and they shall weep for you with bitterness of soul, a bitter wailing.
Eze 27:32 And in their wailing they shall lift up a lamentation and lament over you, saying, Who is like Tyre, as one silenced in the midst of the sea?
Eze 27:33 When your wares went out from the seas, you satisfied many peoples. With the plenty of your riches and your goods, you enriched the kings of the earth.
Eze 27:34 At this time you are broken from the seas. By the depths of the waters your goods and all your assembly have fallen in your midst.
Eze 27:35 All those living in the coastlands are appalled at you, and their kings are shivering in the tempest; their faces tremble.
Eze 27:36 The traders among the peoples hiss over you; you have become terrors. And until forever you shall not be.

Ezekiel 26

Eze 26:1 And it was in the eleventh year, in the first of the month, the Word of Jehovah was to me, saying,
Eze 26:2 Son of man, because Tyre has said against Jerusalem, Aha! She is shattered, the doors of the peoples; she has turned to me, I shall be filled, she is laid waste.
Eze 26:3 So the Lord Jehovah says this, Behold, I am against you, O Tyre. And I will cause many nations to go up against you, as the sea causes its waves to go up.
Eze 26:4 And they shall destroy the walls of Tyre and break down her towers. I will also scrape her dust from her and make her like a shining rock.
Eze 26:5 It shall be a spreading place for nets in the middle of the sea. For I have spoken, declares the Lord Jehovah. And she shall be a prize to the nations.
Eze 26:6 And her daughters who are in the field shall be killed by the sword. And they shall know that I am Jehovah.
Eze 26:7 For so says the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I will bring on Tyre from the north, Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, a king of kings, with horses and with chariots and with a company of horsemen, even many people.
Eze 26:8 He shall kill your daughters in the field with the sword. And he shall give siege walls against you and pour out a mound against you, and raise a buckler against you.
Eze 26:9 And he will set the blow of his ram against your walls, and he will break down your towers with his axes.
Eze 26:10 From the multitude of his horses their dust shall cover you. From the sound of the horsemen, and the wheels, and the chariots, your walls shall shake when he goes into your gates, as they enter a city that is breached.
Eze 26:11 With the hoofs of the horses, he will trample all your streets. He shall kill your people by the sword, and the pillars of your strength shall go down to the ground.
Eze 26:12 And they shall strip your wealth and plunder your merchandise. And they shall tear down your walls and destroy your desirable houses. And they shall set your stones and your timber and your dust in the midst of the water.
Eze 26:13 And I will make cease the noise of your songs. And the sound of your harps shall not be heard any more.
Eze 26:14 And I will make you like a shining rock. You shall be a spreading place for nets, you shall not be built any more. For I, Jehovah, have spoken, declares the Lord Jehovah.
Eze 26:15 So says the Lord Jehovah to Tyre: Shall not the coast lands shake at the sound of your fall, when the slain groan, in the slaying of the slaughter in your midst?
Eze 26:16 And all the rulers of the sea shall come down from their thrones and lay aside their robes and strip off their embroidered garments. They shall be clothed with trembling. They shall sit on the ground and shall tremble at every moment and be appalled at you.
Eze 26:17 And they shall lift up a lament for you and say to you, How you are perished, who lived by the seas, the city well praised, which was strong in the sea, she and her dwellers, who put their terrors on all living in her!
Eze 26:18 Now the coastlands shall tremble in the day of your fall. Yea, the coastlands by the sea shall be troubled at your going down.
Eze 26:19 For so says the Lord Jehovah: When I shall make you a ruined city, like the cities that do not have ones living in them, when I shall bring up on you the deep and great waters shall cover you.
Eze 26:20 And I will make you go down with those going down into the Pit, with the people of old time, and I shall set you in the earth’s lowest parts, in places ruined from days of old, with ones who go to the Pit, so that you have no one living in you. But I gave glory in the land of the living.
Eze 26:21 I will give you terrors, and you will not be. Though you are sought, yet you shall not be found any more forever, declares the Lord Jehovah.

Ezekiel 25

Eze 25:1 And the Word of Jehovah was to me, saying,
Eze 25:2 Son of man, set your face against the sons of Ammon and prophesy against them.
Eze 25:3 And say to the sons of Ammon, Hear the Word of the Lord Jehovah. So says the Lord Jehovah: Because you have said, Aha! against My sanctuary when it was profaned, and against the land of Israel when it was ruined, and against the house of Judah when they went into exile;
Eze 25:4 therefore, behold, I will give you to the sons of the east for a possession. And they shall set their camp sites among you, and put among you their dwellings. They shall eat your fruit, and they shall drink your milk.
Eze 25:5 And I will give Rabbah for a pasture for camels, and the sons of Ammon for a resting place for flocks. And you shall know that I am Jehovah.
Eze 25:6 For so says the Lord Jehovah: Because you have clapped the hand, and you stamped the foot, and rejoiced with all your spite in your soul against the land of Israel;
Eze 25:7 so, behold, I will stretch out My hand on you and will give you as a prize to the nations. And I will cut you off from the peoples, and I will make you perish from the lands; I will destroy you, and you shall know that I am Jehovah.
Eze 25:8 So says the Lord Jehovah: Because Moab and Seir say, Behold, the house of Judah is like all the nations.
Eze 25:9 So behold! I will open the side of Moab from the cities, from his cities, from his borders, the glory of the land: Beth-jeshimoth, Baal-meon, and Kiriathaim.
Eze 25:10 To the sons of the east, with the sons of Ammon, even I will give it for a possession so that the sons of Ammon may not be remembered among the nations.
Eze 25:11 And I will execute judgments on Moab. And they shall know that I am Jehovah.
Eze 25:12 So says the Lord Jehovah: Because Edom has acted by taking vengeance against the house of Judah, and they are very guilty and are avenged on them,
Eze 25:13 so the Lord Jehovah says this: I will stretch My hand on Edom and will cut off from it man and beast, and I will lay it waste. From Teman even to Dedan they shall fall by the sword.
Eze 25:14 And I will put My vengeance on Edom by the hand of My people Israel. And they shall do in Edom as is My anger and as is My fury. And they shall know My vengeance, declares the Lord Jehovah.
Eze 25:15 So says the Lord Jehovah: Because the Philistines have acted in vengeance and have taken vengeance with spite in their soul, to destroy with perpetual enmity;
Eze 25:16 so the Lord Jehovah says this, Behold, I will stretch My hand on the Philistines, and I will cut off the Cherethites and will destroy the rest of the coast of the sea.
Eze 25:17 And I will execute on them great vengeance with rebukes of fury. And when I put My vengeance on them, they will know that I am Jehovah.

Ezekiel 24

Eze 24:1 And the Word of Jehovah was to me in the ninth year, in the tenth month, in the tenth of the month, saying,
Eze 24:2 Son of man, write for yourself the name of the day, this very day. The king of Babylon has leaned toward Jerusalem in this very day.
Eze 24:3 And parable a parable to the house of rebellion, and say to them, So says the Lord Jehovah: Set on the pot! Set it on, and also pour water in it.
Eze 24:4 Gather its pieces into it, every good piece, the thigh and the shoulder. Fill it with choice bones,
Eze 24:5 take the choice of the flock and also pile the bones under it. Boiling make it boil. Also let them seethe its bones in it.
Eze 24:6 So the Lord Jehovah says this: Woe to the bloody city, to the pot whose rust is in it, and its rust has not gone out of it! Bring it out piece by piece. Let not a lot fall on it.
Eze 24:7 For her blood is in her midst, she set it on a shining rock. She did not pour it on the ground, to cover it with dust.
Eze 24:8 In order to cause fury to come up to take vengeance, I have put her blood on a shining rock, that it should not be covered.
Eze 24:9 So the Lord Jehovah says this: Woe to the bloody city! I also shall make great the pile,
Eze 24:10 and heap on the wood, kindle the fire, consume the flesh, and mix in the spice, and let the bones be burned.
Eze 24:11 Then make it stand on its coals empty, so that it may be hot and its bronze may glow, and its defilement be melted in its midst, that its rust may be consumed.
Eze 24:12 She is wearied with toil, and the increase of her rust did not go out, her rust will be in the fire.
Eze 24:13 In your defilement is wickedness. Because I have cleansed you, yet you are not cleansed, you shall not be cleansed from your defilement any more until I have caused My fury to cease on you.
Eze 24:14 I, Jehovah, have spoken; it shall come, and I will do it. I will not let go, and I will not spare, I will not pity. By your ways and by your doings they shall judge you, declares the Lord Jehovah.
Eze 24:15 And the Word of Jehovah was to me, saying,
Eze 24:16 Son of man, behold, I am taking from you the desire of your eyes with a stroke. Yet you shall not wail nor weep, and your tears shall not come.
Eze 24:17 Groan, but be silent; do not make a mourning for her who died. Bind your turban on you, and put your sandals on your feet, and do not cover the mustache nor eat the bread of men.
Eze 24:18 And I spoke to the people in the morning. And my wife died in the evening. And I did in the morning as I was commanded.
Eze 24:19 And the people said to me, Will you not tell us what the things you are doing are to us?
Eze 24:20 Then I said to them, The Word of Jehovah was to me, saying,
Eze 24:21 Speak to the house of Israel, So says the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I will profane My sanctuary, the pride of your strength, the desire of your eyes, and that which your soul pities. And your sons and your daughters whom you have forsaken shall fall by the sword.
Eze 24:22 And you shall do as I have done. You shall not cover over the mustache, and you shall not eat the bread of men.
Eze 24:23 And your turbans shall be on your heads and your sandals on your feet. You shall not wail nor weep, but you shall rot away in your iniquities, and each man groan to his brother.
Eze 24:24 So Ezekiel is for a sign to you. As all that he has done, you shall do. And when it comes, then you shall know that I am the Lord Jehovah.
Eze 24:25 And you, son of man, will it not be on the day when I take from them their strength, the joy of their beauty, the desire of their eyes, and the lifting up of their soul, their sons and their daughters?
Eze 24:26 He will come in that day, he who escaped to you, to cause you to hear with your ears.
Eze 24:27 In that day your mouth shall be opened to the escaped one, and you shall speak and not be dumb any longer. And you shall be to them a sign, and they shall know that I am Jehovah.

Ezekiel 23

Eze 23:1 And the Word of Jehovah was to me, saying,
Eze 23:2 Son of man, there were two women, daughters of one mother.
Eze 23:3 And they fornicated in Egypt; in their youth they fornicated. Their breasts were handled, and there their virgin nipples were worked.
Eze 23:4 And their names were Oholah, the oldest, and Oholibah, her sister. And they were Mine, and they bore sons and daughters. And their names: Samaria is Oholah, and Jerusalem is Oholibah.
Eze 23:5 And Oholah whored under Me. And she lusted on her lovers, to Assyrian neighbors,
Eze 23:6 clothed with purple, governors and rulers, all of them desirable young men, horsemen riding horses.
Eze 23:7 And she bestowed her harlotries on them, the choice sons of Assyria, with all of them, and with all after whom she lusted. She defiled herself with all their idols.
Eze 23:8 And she did not leave her fornications from Egypt. For they lay with her in her youth, and they worked her virgin nipples and poured their fornications on her.
Eze 23:9 So I have given her into the hand of her lovers, into the hand of the sons of Assyria on whom she lusted.
Eze 23:10 They uncovered her nakedness. They took her sons and her daughters. And they killed her with the sword. And she was notorious among women, and they executed judgments on her.
Eze 23:11 And her sister Oholibah saw. And she was more corrupt in her lustfulness than she, and her fornications were greater than her sister’s whoredom.
Eze 23:12 She lusted to the sons of Assyria, neighboring governors and rulers clothed most perfectly, horsemen riding horses, all of them desirable young men.
Eze 23:13 Then I saw that she was defiled, one way was to both of them.
Eze 23:14 And she added to her fornications. And she saw men carved on the wall, images of the Chaldeans engraved with vermillion color,
Eze 23:15 girded with girdles on their loins, with overflowing turbans on their heads, the appearance of rulers, all of them, like the sons of Babylon in Chaldea, the land of their birth.
Eze 23:16 And she lusted after them, to the sight of her eyes, and sent messengers to them into Chaldea.
Eze 23:17 And the sons of Babylon came to her, to the bed of love. And they defiled her with their fornications. And she was defiled with them, and her soul was alienated from them.
Eze 23:18 And she uncovered her fornications and uncovered her nakedness. Then My soul was alienated from her just as My soul was alienated from her sister.
Eze 23:19 And she multiplied her fornications to recall the days of her youth, in which she had fornicated in the land of Egypt.
Eze 23:20 And she lusted on their paramours of whom the flesh of asses resembles their flesh, and as the issue of horses was their issue.
Eze 23:21 And you longed for the wickedness of your youth, when from Egypt they worked your nipples, for the sake of the breasts of your youth.
Eze 23:22 Therefore, O Oholibah, the Lord Jehovah says this: Behold, I will arouse your lovers against you, from whom your soul is alienated. And I will bring them against you from all around,
Eze 23:23 Babylon’s sons and all the Chaldeans, Pekod, and Shoa, and Koa, all the sons of Assyria with them, desirable young men, governors and rulers, all of them, third heads and called ones, all of them riding horses.
Eze 23:24 And they shall come against you with weapons, chariots, and wheels, and with an assembly of peoples; buckler and shield and helmet shall set against you all around. And I will give before them judgment, and they will judge you by their judgments.
Eze 23:25 And I will give My jealousy against you, and they will deal with you in fury. Your nose and your ears they will take, and the rest of you shall fall by the sword. They will take your sons and your daughters, and the rest of you shall be devoured by the fire.
Eze 23:26 And they will strip you of your clothes, and take the articles of your beauty.
Eze 23:27 And I will cause your wickedness to cease from you, and your fornication from the land of Egypt. And you shall not lift up your eyes to them, and Egypt shall not be remembered by you any more.
Eze 23:28 For so says the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I will give you into the hand of those whom you hate, into the hand of whom your soul was alienated from them.
Eze 23:29 And they shall deal with you in hatred and take all your labor, and shall leave you naked and bare. And the nudity of your adulteries will be bared, even your lewdness and your fornications.
Eze 23:30 These will be done to you because you have whored after the nations, because you are defiled with their idols.
Eze 23:31 You have walked in the way of your sister, and I will give her cup into your hand.
Eze 23:32 So says the Lord Jehovah: You shall drink your sister’s cup deep and wide; you shall be laughed at and mocked, for it holds much.
Eze 23:33 With drunkenness and sorrow you are filled, the cup of horror and ruin, the cup of your sister Samaria.
Eze 23:34 And you shall drink it and drain it. And you shall break its fragments and tear off your breasts. For I have spoken, declares the Lord Jehovah.
Eze 23:35 Therefore the Lord Jehovah says this: Because you have forgotten Me and cast Me behind your back, so also you bear your wickedness and your adulteries.
Eze 23:36 And Jehovah said to me, Son of man, will you judge Oholah and Oholibah? Then declare to them their abominations.
Eze 23:37 For they committed adultery, and blood is on their hands. Yea, they committed adultery with their idols, and even their sons whom they bore to Me, they cause to pass to them to be consumed.
Eze 23:38 Even still they have done this to Me: They have defiled My sanctuary in that day, and have profaned My sabbaths.
Eze 23:39 And when they had slain their sons to their idols, then they came into My sanctuary in that day to profane it. And, lo, this they have done in the midst of My house.
Eze 23:40 Furthermore, they have sent for men to come from a distance, of whom a messenger was sent to them. And behold, they came, for whom you washed, painted your eyes, and were adorned with gems.
Eze 23:41 And you sat on a glorious bed, and a table was arranged before it, and My incense and My oil you set on it.
Eze 23:42 And the sound of a crowd at ease was with her, and drunkards from the wilderness were brought with the men of the host of mankind. And they put bracelets on their hands and crowns of beauty on their heads.
Eze 23:43 Then I said about the one worn in adulteries, Will they now fornicate with her, and she with them?
Eze 23:44 And they went in to her. As they go in to a woman of harlotry, so they went in to Oholah and to Oholibah, the wicked women.
Eze 23:45 And as righteous men, they shall judge them with the judgment of adulteresses, and the judgment of women who shed blood, because they are adulteresses, and blood is in their hands.
Eze 23:46 For so says the Lord Jehovah: Bring up on them an assembly, and give them to terror and plunder.
Eze 23:47 And the assembly shall stone them with stones and cut them down with their swords. They shall slay their sons and their daughters, and they shall burn their houses with fire.
Eze 23:48 So I will cause to cease wickedness out of the land, that all the women may be taught, even not to do according to your wickedness.
Eze 23:49 And they shall put your wickedness on you, and you shall bear the sins of your idols. And you shall know that I am the Lord Jehovah.

Ezekiel 22

Eze 22:1 And the Word of Jehovah was to me, saying,
Eze 22:2 And you, son of man, will you judge, will you judge the bloody city? Then cause her to know all her abominations.
Eze 22:3 Then you shall say, So says the Lord Jehovah: The city sheds blood in her midst, that her time may come. And she makes idols against herself, to defile herself.
Eze 22:4 By your blood which you have shed, you are guilty; and by your idols which you have made, you are defiled. And your days are brought near, and you have come to your years. On account of this, I have made you a reproach to the nations, and a mocking to all the lands.
Eze 22:5 Those who are near and those far from you shall mock against you, O defiled of name, abounding in tumult.
Eze 22:6 Behold, the rulers of Israel, each man by his might, have been in you in order to pour out blood.
Eze 22:7 In you they have despised father and mother. In your midst they have dealt with the alien by oppression. In you they oppressed the widow and the orphan.
Eze 22:8 You have despised My holy things and have profaned My sabbaths.
Eze 22:9 In you are men of slander in order to shed blood, and in you they eat on the mountains. In your midst they do unchaste acts.
Eze 22:10 In you he has uncovered the nakedness of the father; in you they humbled the defiled by her impurity.
Eze 22:11 And a man has done abomination with his neighbor’s wife, and a man has defiled his daughter-in-law in unchaste acts. And in you a man has humbled his sister, his father’s daughter.
Eze 22:12 In you they have taken bribes in order to pour out blood. You have taken interest and increase, and you have gained by extortion of your neighbor. And you have forgotten Me, declares the Lord Jehovah.
Eze 22:13 And behold! I have struck My hand against your unjust gain which you have made, and at your blood which has been in your midst.
Eze 22:14 Can your heart stand, or can your hands be strong, in the days that I shall work with you? I, Jehovah, have spoken, and I will work.
Eze 22:15 And I will scatter you among the nations and sow you in the lands. And I will destroy your uncleanness out of you.
Eze 22:16 And you will be profaned in you in the eyes of the nations. And you shall know that I am Jehovah.
Eze 22:17 And the Word of Jehovah was to me, saying,
Eze 22:18 Son of man, the house of Israel has become dross to Me. All of them are bronze and tin, and iron and lead, in the middle of the furnace; they are the dross of silver.
Eze 22:19 So the Lord Jehovah says this: Because all of you have become for dross, therefore, behold, I will gather you into the midst of Jerusalem.
Eze 22:20 As they gather silver, and bronze, and iron, and lead, and tin, into the middle of the furnace, to blow the fire on it to melt it; so I will gather you in My anger and in My fury. And I will leave you there and melt you.
Eze 22:21 And I will collect you and blow on you in the fire of My wrath, and you shall be melted in its midst.
Eze 22:22 As silver is melted in the midst of the furnace, so you shall be melted in its midst. And you shall know that I, Jehovah, have poured out My fury on you.
Eze 22:23 And the Word of Jehovah was to me, saying,
Eze 22:24 Son of man, speak to her: You are a land, she is not being cleansed, you are not rained on in the day of disgust.
Eze 22:25 A plot by her prophets is in her midst, like a roaring lion tearing prey. They have devoured souls and they have taken the riches and gems. They multiplied her widows in her midst.
Eze 22:26 Her priests have violated My Law and have profaned My holy things. They have not divided between the holy and the common, and between the unclean and clean they have not taught. And they have hidden their eyes from the sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.
Eze 22:27 Her rulers in her midst are like wolves tearing prey, to pour out blood, to destroy souls, in order to gain unjust gain.
Eze 22:28 And her prophets have daubed themselves with lime, a seer of empty visions, and divining lies to them, saying, So says the Lord Jehovah, when Jehovah has not spoken.
Eze 22:29 The people of the land have used oppression and practiced robbery. And they troubled the poor and the needy, and they have oppressed the stranger without justice.
Eze 22:30 And I sought among them a man to wall up a wall and stand in the breach before Me for the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found none.
Eze 22:31 So I have poured out on them My disgust. With the fire of My wrath I consumed them. I have given their way on their heads, states the Lord Jehovah.

Ezekiel 21

Eze 21:1 And the Word of Jehovah was to me, saying,
Eze 21:2 Son of man, set your face against Jerusalem and drop a word toward the holy places, and prophesy against the land of Israel.
Eze 21:3 And say to the land of Israel, So says Jehovah: Behold, I am against you and My sword goes out from its sheath, and I will cut off from you the righteous and the wicked.
Eze 21:4 Because I will cut off the righteous and the wicked from you, therefore, My sword shall go out from its sheath against all flesh, from the Negeb to the north.
Eze 21:5 And all flesh shall know that I, Jehovah, have brought out My sword from its sheath; it shall not return any more.
Eze 21:6 And you, son of man, groan with the breaking of your loins, and groan with bitterness before their eyes.
Eze 21:7 And it will be, when they say to you, For what do you groan? Then you shall say, Because of the news that is coming. And every heart will melt, and all hands will become feeble. And every spirit will faint and all knees will go down as water. Behold, it comes, and it shall be, declares the Lord Jehovah.
Eze 21:8 And the Word of Jehovah was to me, saying,
Eze 21:9 Son of man, prophesy and say, So says the Lord: Say, A sword! A sword is sharpened and also is polished!
Eze 21:10 It is sharpened in order to slaughter a slaughter. It is polished so that there may be a flash to it. Or shall we rejoice? You are despising the rod of My son, as if it were every tree.
Eze 21:11 And He has given it to be polished, to be taken by the hand. The sword, it is sharpened, and it is polished, to give it into the hand of the slayer.
Eze 21:12 Cry out and howl, son of man. For it shall be on My people. It shall be on all the rulers of Israel; they are thrown to the sword with My people, so slap your thigh,
Eze 21:13 because it is a test. And what if even the despising rod shall not be? declares the Lord Jehovah.
Eze 21:14 And you, son of man, prophesy and strike hand to hand. And let the sword be doubled the third time, the sword of the slain. It is the sword of the slain, the great one that surrounds them,
Eze 21:15 so that their heart may melt and many stumble at all their gates. I have given the slaughter by the sword. Ah! It is made like lightning, it is wrapped for a slaughter.
Eze 21:16 Sharpen yourself on the right! Set yourself on the left, wherever your face is appointed.
Eze 21:17 And also I, I will strike My hand to My hand, and I will cause My fury to rest. I, Jehovah, have spoken.
Eze 21:18 And the Word of Jehovah was to me, saying,
Eze 21:19 And you, son of man, set for yourself two ways, that the sword of the king of Babylon may come. Both of them shall come out from one land. And create a hand at the head of the way to the city, create it.
Eze 21:20 You shall set a way that the sword may enter into Rabbah of the sons of Ammon, and into Judah, into fortified Jerusalem.
Eze 21:21 For the king of Babylon shall stand at the mother of the way, at the head of the two ways to practice divination. He shall shake arrows, he shall ask household idols; he shall look at the liver.
Eze 21:22 At his right shall be the divining for Jerusalem, to set battering rams, to open the mouth in the slaughter, to lift up the voice with shouting, to set battering rams against the gates, to pour out a mound, and to build a siege wall.
Eze 21:23 And it shall be to them an empty divining before their eyes, those who have sworn oaths to them. But he will remember iniquity, that they may be taken.
Eze 21:24 So the Lord Jehovah says this: Because you made remembrance of your iniquity, in that your transgressions are uncovered, so that your sins are seen in all your doings, because you have been remembered, you shall be taken with the hand.
Eze 21:25 And you, O slain, wicked prince of Israel, of whom has come his day in the time of iniquity of the end,
Eze 21:26 so says the Lord Jehovah: Remove the diadem and lift off the crown. This shall not be as this was. Lift up the low one, and make the high one low.
Eze 21:27 Ruin, ruin, ruin! I will appoint it! Also this shall not be until the coming of Him to whom is the right, and I will give it.
Eze 21:28 And you, son of man, prophesy and say, So says the Lord Jehovah concerning the sons of Ammon, and as to their reproach, even say, The sword, the sword is loosened. It is polished for slaughter to make an end, so that it may be like lightning.
Eze 21:29 While they see vain visions for you, while they divine a lie to you, to put you on the necks of the slain, of the wicked (of whom their day has come), in the time of iniquity it shall have an end.
Eze 21:30 Return it to its sheath. In the place where you were created, in the land of your origin, I will judge you.
Eze 21:31 And I will pour out on you My disgust; with the fire of My wrath I will blow against you and give you into the hand of burning men, skilled in destruction.
Eze 21:32 You shall be to the fire for food. Your blood shall be in the midst of the land. You shall not be remembered. For I, Jehovah, have spoken.

Jeremiah 30

Jer 30:1 The Word that came to Jeremiah from Jehovah, saying,
Jer 30:2 So speaks Jehovah, God of Israel, saying, Write for yourself all the Words that I have spoken to you in a book.
Jer 30:3 For, lo, the days come, says Jehovah, that I will turn the captivity of My people Israel and Judah, says Jehovah; and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.
Jer 30:4 And these are the Words that Jehovah spoke concerning Israel and concerning Judah:
Jer 30:5 For so says Jehovah, We have heard a sound of trembling, of dread, and not of peace.
Jer 30:6 Ask now and see whether a male is giving birth? Why do I see every man with his hands on his loins, like a woman giving birth, and all faces are turned to paleness?
Jer 30:7 Alas! For that day is great, for none is like it. And it is a time of Jacob’s trouble, but he will be saved out of it.
Jer 30:8 For it shall be in that day, says Jehovah of Hosts, I will break his yoke from your neck, and I will burst your bonds. And strangers will not again enslave him;
Jer 30:9 but they shall serve Jehovah their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up to them.
Jer 30:10 And you, O My servant Jacob, do not fear, says Jehovah. Do not be terrified, O Israel. For, lo, I will save you from afar, and your seed from the land of their captivity. And Jacob shall return, and have quiet, and be untroubled, and no one will make him afraid.
Jer 30:11 For I am with you, says Jehovah, to save you. Though I make a full end among all nations where I have scattered you, yet I will not make a full end with you. But I will correct you justly, and I will not leave you unpunished.
Jer 30:12 For so says Jehovah, Your break cannot be cured; your wound is grievous.
Jer 30:13 There is no one to judge your cause; for your ulcer there are no healing medicines for you.
Jer 30:14 All those loving you have forgotten you; they do not seek you. For I have wounded you with the wound of an enemy, with the chastisement of a cruel one, because of the greatness of your iniquity. Your sins are many.
Jer 30:15 Why do you cry out over your crushing? Your pain is incurable, for the greatness of your iniquity; your sins are many, so I have done these things to you.
Jer 30:16 Therefore, all those who devour you shall be devoured. And all your foes, every one of them, shall go into captivity. And those plundering you I will give up to plunder, and all preying on you I will give up for prey.
Jer 30:17 For I will give health back to you, and I will heal you of your wounds, says Jehovah, because they called you, Outcast; saying, This is Zion; no one is seeking for her.
Jer 30:18 So says Jehovah, Behold I will turn the captivity of Jacob’s tents and will have mercy on his dwelling places. And the city shall be built on her ruin heap; and the fortress shall remain on its own ordinance.
Jer 30:19 And out of them shall come thanksgiving and the voice of those who are merry. And I will multiply them, and they shall not be few. I also will honor them, and they shall not be small.
Jer 30:20 Also, his sons shall be as before, and his assembly shall be established before Me; and I will punish all who oppress them.
Jer 30:21 And his leader shall be from him, and his ruler shall come from among him. And I will cause him to draw near, and he shall approach Me. For who is he who pledged his heart to come near to Me, says Jehovah?
Jer 30:22 And you shall be My people, and I will be your God.
Jer 30:23 Behold, the tempest of Jehovah: fury goes forth, a sweeping tempest; it shall whirl on the head of the wicked.
Jer 30:24 The glow of Jehovah’s anger will not turn back until He has executed, and until He has established the purposes of His heart. In latter days you will understand it.

Jeremiah 29

Jer 29:1 And these are the words of the letter that Jeremiah the prophet sent from Jerusalem to the rest of the elders of the exile, and to the priests, and to the prophets, and to all the people whom Nebuchadnezzar had exiled from Jerusalem to Babylon
Jer 29:2 after Jeconiah the king, and the queen mother, and the eunuchs, the rulers of Judah and Jerusalem, and the craftsmen, and the smiths, had gone out from Jerusalem.
Jer 29:3 He sent by the hand of Elasah the son of Shaphan, and Gemariah the son of Hilkiah, whom Zedekiah, king of Judah, sent to Babylon to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, saying,
Jer 29:4 So says Jehovah of Hosts, the God of Israel, to all the exiles whom I have caused to be exiled from Jerusalem to Babylon:
Jer 29:5 Build houses and live, and plant gardens, and eat their fruit.
Jer 29:6 Take wives, and father sons and daughters. And take wives for your sons; and give your daughters to husbands, that they may bear sons and daughters, and multiply there, and do not become few.
Jer 29:7 And seek the peace of the city, there where I have caused you to be exiled. And pray to Jehovah for it; for in its peace you shall have peace.
Jer 29:8 For so says Jehovah of Hosts, the God of Israel: Do not let your prophets and your divining ones in your midst deceive you. And do not listen to your dreams which you dream.
Jer 29:9 For they prophesy falsely to you in My name. I have not sent them, says Jehovah.
Jer 29:10 For so says Jehovah, When according to My mouth seventy years have been fulfilled for Babylon, I will visit you and confirm My good Word to you, to bring you back to this place.
Jer 29:11 For I know the purposes which I am planning for you, says Jehovah; purposes of peace, and not for evil; to give you posterity and a hope.
Jer 29:12 Then you shall call on Me, and you shall go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.
Jer 29:13 And you shall seek and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.
Jer 29:14 And I will be found by you, says Jehovah. And I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places where I have driven you, says Jehovah. And I will bring you again into the place from which I sent you into exile, from there.
Jer 29:15 Because you have said, Jehovah has raised up for us prophets in Babylon,
Jer 29:16 for so says Jehovah to the king who sits on the throne of David, and to all the people who live in this city, your brothers who have not gone out with you into exile,
Jer 29:17 so says Jehovah of Hosts, Behold, I am sending among them the sword, the famine, and the plague. And have given them up as figs that are vile, which cannot be eaten from badness.
Jer 29:18 And I will pursue them with the sword, with the famine, and with the plague. And I will make them a horror to all the kingdoms of the earth, to be a curse, and a terror, and a hissing, and a reproach among all the nations, there where I have driven them.
Jer 29:19 For they have not listened to My Words, says Jehovah, which I sent to them by My servants the prophets, rising up early and sending; but you would not hear, says Jehovah.
Jer 29:20 And now you hear the Word of Jehovah, all you exiles whom I have sent from Jerusalem to Babylon.
Jer 29:21 So says Jehovah of Hosts, the God of Israel concerning Ahab the son of Kolaiah, and concerning Zedekiah the son of Maaseiah, who prophesy a lie to you in My name: Behold, I will give them into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and he shall strike them before your eyes.
Jer 29:22 And a curse shall be taken up from them for all the exiles of Judah who are in Babylon, saying, May Jehovah make you like Zedekiah and like Ahab, whom the king of Babylon roasted in the fire,
Jer 29:23 because they have committed disgraceful folly in Israel, and have committed adultery with their neighbor’s wives, and have spoken a lying word in My name, which I have not commanded them. For I am He who knows, and a witness, says Jehovah.
Jer 29:24 You shall also speak to Shemaiah the Nehelamite, saying,
Jer 29:25 So says Jehovah of Hosts, the God of Israel, saying, Because you have sent letters in your name to all the people in Jerusalem, and to Zephaniah the son of Maaseiah the priest, and to all the priests, saying,
Jer 29:26 Jehovah has made you priest instead of Jehoiada the priest, to be officers in the house of Jehovah, over every raving man who prophesies, that you should put him into the stocks and into the torture collar.
Jer 29:27 And now why have you not reproved Jeremiah of Anathoth, who prophesies to you?
Jer 29:28 On account of this he sent to us in Babylon, saying, This exile is long; build houses and live; and plant gardens and eat their fruit.
Jer 29:29 And Zephaniah the priest read this letter in the ears of Jeremiah the prophet.
Jer 29:30 Then the Word of Jehovah came to Jeremiah, saying,
Jer 29:31 Send to all the exiles, saying, So says Jehovah concerning Shemaiah the Nehelamite: Because Shemaiah has prophesied to you, and I did not send him; and he caused you to trust in a lie;
Jer 29:32 therefore so says Jehovah, Behold, I will punish Shemaiah the Nehelamite and his seed. There shall not be to him a man living among this people; nor shall he behold the good which I shall do for My people, says Jehovah, because he has uttered rebellion against Jehovah.

Jeremiah 28

Jer 28:1 And it happened in that year, in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah, king of Judah, in the fourth year, in the fifth month, Hananiah the son of Azur the prophet, of Gibeon, spoke to me in the house of Jehovah, for the eyes of the priests and all the people, saying,
Jer 28:2 So says Jehovah of Hosts, the God of Israel, saying, I have broken the yoke of the king of Babylon.
Jer 28:3 Within two years I will again bring into this place all the vessels of the house of Jehovah which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon took away from this place and brought them to Babylon.
Jer 28:4 And I will bring again to this place Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, with all the exiles of Judah who went into Babylon, says Jehovah. For I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon.
Jer 28:5 Then the prophet Jeremiah said to the prophet Hananiah in the presence of the priests, and in the presence of all the people who stood in the house of Jehovah,
Jer 28:6 even the prophet Jeremiah said, Amen! May Jehovah do so; may Jehovah confirm your words which you have prophesied, to bring again the vessels of the house of Jehovah, and all the exiles, from Babylon into this place.
Jer 28:7 But hear now this word that I speak in your ears and in the ears of all the people:
Jer 28:8 The prophets who have been before me and before you from antiquity prophesied against many lands and against great kingdoms, of war, and of evil, and of plague.
Jer 28:9 As for the prophet who prophesies of peace, when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, the prophet shall be known as one whom Jehovah has truly sent him.
Jer 28:10 Then Hananiah the prophet took the yoke from the prophet Jeremiah’s neck and broke it.
Jer 28:11 And Hananiah spoke for the eyes of the people saying, So says Jehovah, Even so I will break the yoke of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon from the neck of all nations within the time of two years. And the prophet Jeremiah went his way.
Jer 28:12 Then the Word of Jehovah came to Jeremiah, after Hananiah the prophet had broken the yoke from the neck of the prophet Jeremiah, saying,
Jer 28:13 Go and tell Hananiah, saying, So says Jehovah, You have broken yokes of wood, but you shall make instead of them yokes of iron.
Jer 28:14 For so says Jehovah of Hosts, the God of Israel: I have put a yoke of iron on the neck of all these nations to serve Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon. And they shall serve him. And I have given him the beasts of the field also.
Jer 28:15 Then the prophet Jeremiah said to Hananiah the prophet, Hear now, Hananiah, Jehovah has not sent you, but you have made this people trust in a lie.
Jer 28:16 So Jehovah says this, Behold, I send you away from the face of the earth. You shall die this year, because you have spoken apostasy against Jehovah.
Jer 28:17 And Hananiah died the same year in the seventh month.

Jeremiah 27

Jer 27:1 In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, this Word came to Jeremiah from Jehovah, saying,
Jer 27:2 So says Jehovah to me, Make bonds and yokes for yourself, and put them on your neck.
Jer 27:3 And send them to the king of Edom, and to the king of Moab, and to the king of the sons of Ammon, and to the king of Tyre, and to the king of Sidon, by the hand of the messengers who came to Jerusalem to Zedekiah, king of Judah.
Jer 27:4 And command them to go to their masters, saying, So says Jehovah of Hosts, the God of Israel: So you shall say to your masters,
Jer 27:5 I have made the earth, the man, and the animals on the face of the earth by My great power and by My outstretched arm; and I have given it to whom it seemed right in My eyes.
Jer 27:6 And now I have given all these lands into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, My servant. And I have also given him the beast of the field to serve him.
Jer 27:7 And all nations shall serve him, and his son, and his son’s son, until the time of his own land comes; also it. And many nations and great kings shall serve him.
Jer 27:8 And it shall be, the nation and kingdom which will not serve him, Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, and that will not put its neck in the yoke of the king of Babylon, I will punish that nation, says Jehovah, with the sword, and with the famine, and with the plague, until I have destroyed them by his hand.
Jer 27:9 As for you, do not listen to your prophets, or to those divining to you, or to your dreams, or to your conjurers, or to your sorcerers, those who speak to you, saying, You shall not serve the king of Babylon.
Jer 27:10 For they prophesy a lie to you, to remove you far from your land, that I should drive you out, and you should perish.
Jer 27:11 But the nation that will bring its neck into the yoke of the king of Babylon, and serve him, says Jehovah, I will leave it on its own land, and it may work it and live in it.
Jer 27:12 I also spoke to Zedekiah, king of Judah according to all these words, saying, Bring your necks into the king of Babylon’s yoke, and serve him and his people, and live.
Jer 27:13 Why will you die, you and your people, by the sword, by the famine, and by the plague, as Jehovah has spoken against the nation that will not serve the king of Babylon?
Jer 27:14 So then do not listen to the words of the prophets who speak to you, saying, You shall not serve the king of Babylon, for they prophesy a lie to you.
Jer 27:15 For I have not sent them, says Jehovah. Yea, they prophesy a lie in My name, so that I might drive you out, and that you might perish, you and the prophets who prophesy to you.
Jer 27:16 Also I spoke to the priests and to all this people, saying, So says Jehovah, Do not listen to the words of your prophets who prophesy to you, saying, Behold, the vessels of the house of Jehovah shall now be quickly brought again from Babylon. For they prophesy a lie to you.
Jer 27:17 Do not listen to them. Serve the king of Babylon and live. Why should this city be a waste?
Jer 27:18 But if they are prophets, and if the Word of Jehovah is with them, let them now intercede with Jehovah of Hosts that the vessels which are left in the house of Jehovah, and in the house of the king of Judah, and at Jerusalem, may not go to Babylon.
Jer 27:19 For so says Jehovah of Hosts concerning the pillars, and concerning the sea, and concerning the bases, and concerning the rest of the vessels which remain in this city,
Jer 27:20 which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon did not take when he exiled Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, from Jerusalem to Babylon, and all the nobles of Judah and Jerusalem.
Jer 27:21 For so says Jehovah of Hosts, the God of Israel, concerning the vessels that remain in the house of Jehovah, and the house of the king of Judah, and Jerusalem:
Jer 27:22 They shall be brought to Babylon, and they shall be there until the day I visit them, says Jehovah. Then I will bring them up and give them back to this place.

Jeremiah 26

Jer 26:1 In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, this Word came from Jehovah, saying,
Jer 26:2 So says Jehovah, Stand in the court of the house of Jehovah and speak to all the cities of Judah which come to worship in the house of Jehovah, all the Words that I command you to speak to them. Do not keep back a word.
Jer 26:3 It may be that they will listen, and each man turn from his evil way, that I may repent of the evil which I plan to do to them because of the evil of their doings.
Jer 26:4 And you shall say to them, So says Jehovah, If you will not listen to Me, to walk in My Law which I have set before you,
Jer 26:5 to listen to the words of My servants the prophets whom I am sending to you, even rising up early and sending (but you have not listened),
Jer 26:6 then I will make this house like Shiloh, and will make this city a curse to all the nations of the earth.
Jer 26:7 And the priests and the prophets and all the people heard Jeremiah speaking these words in the house of Jehovah.
Jer 26:8 And it happened when Jeremiah had made an end of speaking all that Jehovah had commanded him to speak to all the people, the priests and the prophets and all the people seized him, saying, Dying you shall die.
Jer 26:9 Why have you prophesied in the name of Jehovah, saying, This house shall be like Shiloh, and this city shall be wasted, without one living in it? And all the people were gathered against Jeremiah in the house of Jehovah.
Jer 26:10 When the rulers of Judah heard these things, then they came up from the king’s house to the house of Jehovah and sat down in the entrance of the New Gate of Jehovah.
Jer 26:11 And the priests and the prophets spoke to the rulers, and to all the people, saying, Let a death sentence be for this man, for he has prophesied against this city, as you have heard with your ears.
Jer 26:12 Then Jeremiah spoke to all the rulers and to all the people, saying, Jehovah sent me to prophesy against this house and against this city all the Words that you have heard.
Jer 26:13 So now make good your ways and your doings, and obey the voice of Jehovah your God, and Jehovah will repent toward the evil that He has spoken against you.
Jer 26:14 As for me, behold, I am in your hands; do with me as seems good and right to you.
Jer 26:15 But know for certain that if you put me to death, you shall surely bring innocent blood on yourselves, and on this city, and on those living in it. For truly Jehovah has sent me to you, to speak all these Words in your ears.
Jer 26:16 Then the rulers, and all the people, said to the priests and to the prophets, There is not a sentence of death for this man, for he has spoken to us in the name of Jehovah our God.
Jer 26:17 Then some of the elders of the land rose up and spoke to all the assembly of the people, saying,
Jer 26:18 Micah of Moresheth prophesied in the days of Hezekiah, king of Judah. And he spoke to all the people of Judah, saying, So says Jehovah of Hosts: Zion shall be plowed like a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountain of the house like the high places of a forest.
Jer 26:19 Did Hezekiah, king of Judah and all Judah indeed put him to death? Did he not fear Jehovah and entreat the face of Jehovah? And did not Jehovah repent of the evil which He had spoken against them? So we are doing great evil against our souls.
Jer 26:20 And there was also a man who prophesied in the name of Jehovah, Urijah the son of Shemaiah of Kirjath-jearim, who prophesied against this city and against this land according to the words of Jeremiah.
Jer 26:21 And when Jehoiakim the king, with all his mighty men, and all the rulers, heard his words, the king tried to put him to death. But Urijah heard, and he was afraid, and fled, and went to Egypt.
Jer 26:22 And Jehoiakim the king sent men to Egypt, Elnathan the son of Achbor, and men with him into Egypt.
Jer 26:23 And they brought Urijah out of Egypt and brought him to Jehoiakim the king, who struck him with the sword, and threw his dead body into the graves of the sons of the people.
Jer 26:24 But the hand of Ahikam the son of Shaphan was with Jeremiah, that they should not give him into the hand of the people to put him to death.

Jeremiah 25

Jer 25:1 The Word that was to Jeremiah concerning all the people of Judah in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah. It was the first year of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon.
Jer 25:2 This Jeremiah the prophet spoke to all the people of Judah and to all the residents of Jerusalem, saying,
Jer 25:3 From the thirteenth year of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah, even to this day, this twenty three years, the Word of Jehovah has come to me, and I have spoken to you, rising up early and speaking; but you have not listened.
Jer 25:4 And Jehovah has sent to you all His servants the prophets, rising early and sending, but you have not listened nor bowed your ear to hear,
Jer 25:5 saying, Now turn each one from his evil way and from the evil of your doings, and live on the land which Jehovah has given to you and to your fathers from forever even to forever.
Jer 25:6 And do not go after other gods to serve them and to worship them, and do not provoke Me to anger with the works of your hands; and I will do you no harm.
Jer 25:7 Yet you have not listened to Me, says Jehovah, so that you might provoke Me to anger with the works of your hands, for evil to you.
Jer 25:8 So Jehovah of Hosts says this: Because you have not obeyed My Words,
Jer 25:9 behold! I will send and take all the families of the north, says Jehovah, and Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, My servant; and I will bring them against this land, and against those living in it, and against all these nations all around. And I will completely destroy them, and make them a horror, and a hissing, and everlasting ruins.
Jer 25:10 And I will take from them the voice of rejoicing, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones, and the light of the lamp.
Jer 25:11 And this whole land shall be a waste and a horror; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.
Jer 25:12 And it shall be, when seventy years are fulfilled, I will punish the king of Babylon and that nation, and the land of the Chaldeans, for their iniquity, says Jehovah; and I will make it everlasting ruins.
Jer 25:13 And I will bring on that land all My Words which I have spoken against it, all that is written in this book which Jeremiah has prophesied against all the nations.
Jer 25:14 For many nations and great kings will lay service on them, even they. And I will repay them according to their deeds, and according to the work of their own hands.
Jer 25:15 For so says Jehovah, the God of Israel, to me. Take the wine cup of this wrath from My hand and cause all the nations to whom I shall send you to drink it.
Jer 25:16 And they shall drink, and reel to and fro, and be maddened, because of the sword that I will send among them.
Jer 25:17 Then I took the cup from Jehovah’s hand and made all the nations drink, those to whom Jehovah had sent me:
Jer 25:18 Jerusalem, and the cities of Judah, and their kings, and their rulers, to make them a ruin, a horror, a hissing, and a curse, as it is this day;
Jer 25:19 Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and his servants, and his rulers, and all his people;
Jer 25:20 and all the mixed people, and all the kings of the land of Uz, and all the kings of the land of the Philistines, and Ashkelon, and Gaza, and Ekron, and the remnant of Ashdod,
Jer 25:21 Edom, and Moab, and the sons of Ammon,
Jer 25:22 and all the kings of Tyre, and all the kings of Sidon, and the coastal kings beyond the sea,
Jer 25:23 Dedan, and Tema, and Buz, and all who cut the corners of their beards,
Jer 25:24 and all the kings of Arabia, and all the kings of the mixed people who dwell in the desert,
Jer 25:25 and all the kings of Zimri, and all the kings of Elam, and all the kings of Media,
Jer 25:26 and all the kings of the north, far and near, each one to his brother, and all the kingdoms of the world which are on the face of the earth; and the king of Sheshach shall drink after them.
Jer 25:27 So you shall say to them, So says Jehovah of Hosts, the God of Israel: Drink, and be drunk, and vomit, and fall, and do not rise up, because of the sword which I will send among you.
Jer 25:28 And it shall be, if they refuse to take the cup from your hand to drink, then you shall say to them, So says Jehovah of Hosts, Drinking you shall drink.
Jer 25:29 For, behold, I begin to bring evil on the city on which is called My name, and shall you be found entirely without guilt? You shall not be without guilt. For I will call for a sword on all those living in the earth, says Jehovah of Hosts.
Jer 25:30 And now you prophesy against them all these Words, and say to them, Jehovah shall roar from on high and give forth His voice from His holy habitation; He shall mightily roar over His dwelling place. He answers with a shout, like those who tread out the grapes, against all those living in the earth.
Jer 25:31 A roaring will go to the ends of the earth, for Jehovah has a controversy with the nations. He will enter into judgment with all flesh; He will give the wicked to the sword, says Jehovah.
Jer 25:32 So says Jehovah of Hosts, Behold, evil is going from nation to nation, and a great tempest shall be stirred up from the corners of the earth.
Jer 25:33 And the slain of Jehovah shall be at that day from one end of the earth even to the other end of the earth. They shall not be mourned, nor gathered, nor buried; they shall be as dung on the face of the earth.
Jer 25:34 Howl, O shepherds, and cry, and roll in ashes, O leaders of the flock! For the days of your slaughter and of your scatterings are fulfilled, and you shall fall like a desirable vessel.
Jer 25:35 And refuge has perished from the shepherds, and escape from the leaders of the flock.
Jer 25:36 The sound of the cry of the shepherds, and the howling from the leaders of the flock will be heard. For Jehovah is spoiling their pasture.
Jer 25:37 And the peaceful pastures are devastated, because of the glow of the anger of Jehovah.
Jer 25:38 Like the young lion, He has left His den; for their land is a waste because of the glow of the oppressor, and because of His flowing anger.

Jeremiah 24

Jer 24:1 Jehovah made me see, and, behold, two baskets of figs set before the temple of Jehovah, after Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon had exiled Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, and the rulers of Judah, and the craftsmen, and the smiths from Jerusalem, and had brought them to Babylon.
Jer 24:2 One basket had very good figs, like first ripe figs. And the other basket had very bad figs which could not be eaten from their badness.
Jer 24:3 And Jehovah said to me, What do you see, Jeremiah? And I said, Figs. The good figs are very good, and the bad are very bad, so that they cannot be eaten from their badness.
Jer 24:4 Again the Word of Jehovah came to me, saying,
Jer 24:5 So says Jehovah, the God of Israel, Like these good figs, so I will acknowledge the exiles of Judah whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for good.
Jer 24:6 For I will set My eyes on them for good, and I will bring them again to this land. And I will build them and not tear down; and I will plant them, and will not pluck up.
Jer 24:7 And I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am Jehovah. And they shall be My people, and I will be their God. For they shall return to Me with their whole heart.
Jer 24:8 And like the bad figs which cannot be eaten from badness, so says Jehovah: So I shall make Zedekiah the king of Judah, and his rulers, and the remnant of Jerusalem who remain in this land, and those who dwell in the land of Egypt;
Jer 24:9 I will even make them a horror among all the kingdoms of the earth for evil, for a reproach, and a proverb, a gibe, and a curse, there in all places where I will drive them.
Jer 24:10 And I will send the sword, the famine, and the plague among them until they are consumed from being upon the land that I gave to them and to their fathers.

Jeremiah 23

Jer 23:1 Woe to shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture, says Jehovah.
Jer 23:2 Because of this, so says Jehovah the God of Israel against the shepherds who shepherd My people: You have scattered My flock, and have driven them away, and have not visited them. Behold, I will visit on you the evil of your doings, says Jehovah.
Jer 23:3 And I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all the lands where I have driven them there, and I will bring them again to their fold. And they shall be fruitful and multiply.
Jer 23:4 And I will raise up shepherds over them who will shepherd them. And they will fear no more, nor be terrified; nor will they be missing anything, says Jehovah.
Jer 23:5 Behold, the days come, says Jehovah, that I will raise to David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and act wisely, and He shall do justice and righteousness in the earth.
Jer 23:6 In His days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely. And this is His name by which He shall be called, Jehovah our Righteousness.
Jer 23:7 Behold, so the days come, says Jehovah, that they shall no more say, As Jehovah lives who brought the sons of Israel up out of the land of Egypt;
Jer 23:8 but, As Jehovah lives who brought up and led the seed of the house of Israel out of the land of the north, and from all the lands where I have driven them there. And they shall dwell on their own land.
Jer 23:9 My heart within me is broken concerning the prophets; all my bones shake. I am like a drunken man, and like a man overcome by wine, because of Jehovah, and because of the Words of His holiness.
Jer 23:10 For the land is full of adulterers. For the land mourns because of a curse. The pastures of the wilderness are dried up. And their course is evil, and their might is not right.
Jer 23:11 For both prophet and priest are ungodly; yea, I have found their evil in My house, says Jehovah.
Jer 23:12 So their way shall be to them as slippery places in the darkness; they shall be driven out and fall by it. For I will bring evil on them, the year of their judgment, says Jehovah.
Jer 23:13 And I have seen frivolity among the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied by Baal and led astray My people Israel.
Jer 23:14 I have also seen a horrible thing among the prophets of Jerusalem; they commit adultery and walk in falsehood. And they make the hands of evildoers strong, so that not a man returns from his evil. They are all of them like Sodom to Me, and those living in her like Gomorrah.
Jer 23:15 So Jehovah of Hosts says this concerning the prophets: Behold, I will feed them wormwood, and make them drink poisonous water, for ungodliness has gone forth from the prophets of Jerusalem into all the land.
Jer 23:16 So says Jehovah of Hosts, Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you; they make you vain; they speak a vision of their own heart, not out of the mouth of Jehovah.
Jer 23:17 They say to those who despise Me, Jehovah has said, You shall have peace. And they say to everyone who walks in the stubbornness of his own heart, Evil shall not come on you.
Jer 23:18 For who has stood in the counsel of Jehovah, and has seen and heard His Word? Who has listened to His Word and heard?
Jer 23:19 Behold, the tempest of Jehovah has gone forth in fury, even a whirling tempest. It will whirl on the head of the wicked.
Jer 23:20 The anger of Jehovah shall not turn back until He has executed, and until He has set up the purposes of His heart. In latter days you shall understand it perfectly.
Jer 23:21 I have not sent the prophets, yet they ran; I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.
Jer 23:22 But if they had stood in My counsel and had caused My people to hear My Words, then they would have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.
Jer 23:23 Am I a God near by, says Jehovah, and not a God from afar?
Jer 23:24 Or can anyone hide himself in secret places so that I do not see him, says Jehovah? Do I not fill the heavens and the earth, says Jehovah?
Jer 23:25 I have heard what the prophets said, those who prophesy lies in My name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.
Jer 23:26 How long is this there in the heart of the prophets, the prophets of lies; yea, the prophets of the deceit of their own heart?
Jer 23:27 They plot to cause My people to forget My name by their dreams which they tell, each one to his neighbor, even as their fathers have forgotten My name for Baal.
Jer 23:28 The prophet who has a dream, let him tell a dream. And he who has My Word, let him speak My Word faithfully. What has the chaff to do with the wheat, says Jehovah?
Jer 23:29 Is not My Word thus like fire, says Jehovah, and like a hammer which breaks a rock in pieces?
Jer 23:30 Then, Jehovah says, Behold, I am against the prophets who steal My Words, each one from his neighbor.
Jer 23:31 Jehovah says, Behold, I am against the prophets who use their tongues and say, He says.
Jer 23:32 Jehovah says, Behold, I am against those who prophesy false dreams, and tell them, and cause My people to go astray by their lies, and by their frivolity. Yet I did not send them nor command them. And they will not profit this people at all, says Jehovah.
Jer 23:33 And when this people, or the prophet, or a priest, shall ask you, saying, What is the burden of Jehovah? You shall then say to them, What burden? I will even forsake you, says Jehovah.
Jer 23:34 And the prophet, and the priest, and the people who shall say, The burden of Jehovah, I will even punish that man and his house.
Jer 23:35 And you shall say each one to his neighbor, and each one to his brother, What has Jehovah answered? And what has Jehovah spoken?
Jer 23:36 And you shall not mention the burden of Jehovah again, for each man’s word shall be his burden. But you have perverted the Words of the living God, of Jehovah of Hosts, our God.
Jer 23:37 So you shall say to the prophet, What has Jehovah answered you? And what has Jehovah spoken?
Jer 23:38 But if you say, The burden of Jehovah, therefore so says Jehovah: Because you say this word, the burden of Jehovah; and I have sent to you saying, You shall not say, The burden of Jehovah;
Jer 23:39 therefore, behold! I, even I will utterly forget you and cast you off and the city that I gave to you and your fathers, away from My face.
Jer 23:40 And I will put on you an everlasting reproach and never ending shame on you, which shall not be forgotten.

Jeremiah 22

Jer 22:1 So says Jehovah, Go down to the house of the king of Judah and speak this Word there,
Jer 22:2 and say, Hear the Word of Jehovah, O king of Judah who sits on the throne of David, you and your servants, and your people who enter in by these gates.
Jer 22:3 So says Jehovah, Do justice and righteousness, and deliver the one robbed from the oppressor’s hand. And do not oppress the alien, the widow, or the orphan, and do not do violence nor shed innocent blood in this place.
Jer 22:4 For if you indeed do this thing, then there shall enter in by the gates of this house kings sitting on the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, he and his servants and his people.
Jer 22:5 But if you will not hear these Words, I swear by Myself, says Jehovah, that this house shall become a ruin.
Jer 22:6 For so says Jehovah concerning the king of Judah’s house, You are Gilead to Me, the head of Lebanon; yet surely I will make you a wilderness, cities not inhabited.
Jer 22:7 And I will consecrate destroyers against you, each one with his weapons; and they will cut down your choice cedars and make them fall into the fire.
Jer 22:8 And many nations shall pass by this city, and they shall each say to one another, Why has Jehovah done this to this great city?
Jer 22:9 Then they will answer, Because they have forsaken the covenant of Jehovah their God and worshiped other gods and served them.
Jer 22:10 Weep not for the ones who died nor moan for him; weep bitterly for him who goes away, for he shall return no more, nor see the land of his birth.
Jer 22:11 For so says Jehovah concerning Shallum the son of Josiah, king of Judah, who reigned in his father Josiah’s place, who went forth from this place: he shall not return there any more.
Jer 22:12 But he shall die there in the place where they have exiled him, and he will see this land no more.
Jer 22:13 Woe to him who builds his house without righteousness, and his upper rooms without justice. His neighbor serves without pay, and he does not give him for his work;
Jer 22:14 who says, I will build myself a wide house and large upper rooms. And he cuts out windows for it and covers with cedar, and paints with vermilion.
Jer 22:15 Do you reign because you lust to excel in cedar? Did not your father eat and drink and do justice and righteousness? Then it was well for him.
Jer 22:16 He judged the cause of the poor and needy, then it was well. Was this not to know Me, says Jehovah?
Jer 22:17 But your eyes and your heart lust for nothing but your unjust gain, and to shed innocent blood, and oppression, and to do violence.
Jer 22:18 So Jehovah says this concerning Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, They shall not mourn for him, saying, Ah, my brother! Or, Ah, sister! They shall not mourn for him, saying, Ah, lord! Or, Ah, his glory!
Jer 22:19 He shall be buried with the burial of an ass, drawn beyond the gates of Jerusalem and thrown out.
Jer 22:20 Go up to Lebanon and cry. And lift up your voice in Bashan, and cry out from Abarim; for all those loving you are destroyed.
Jer 22:21 I spoke to you in your prosperity, but you said, I will not hear. This has been your way from your youth, for you have not obeyed My voice.
Jer 22:22 Those feeding you shall feed the wind, and those loving you shall go into captivity. Surely then you will be ashamed and will blush for all your wickedness.
Jer 22:23 One dwelling in Lebanon, nested in the cedars, how you will groan when pangs come to you, the pain as of a woman in labor!
Jer 22:24 As I live, says Jehovah, though Coniah the son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah were the signet on My right hand, yet I would tear you out of there!
Jer 22:25 And I will give you into the hand of those who seek your life, and into the hand of those whose face you fear, even into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and into the hand of the Chaldeans.
Jer 22:26 And I will cast you and your mother who bore you into another country, there where you were not born; and there you shall die.
Jer 22:27 But concerning the land which they lift up with their soul, to return there, they shall not return there.
Jer 22:28 Is this man Coniah a despised, broken jar, or a vessel in which is no pleasure? Why are they hurled, he and his seed, and are cast into the land which they do not know?
Jer 22:29 O earth, earth, earth! Hear the Word of Jehovah!
Jer 22:30 So says Jehovah, Write this man childless, a man who will not prosper in his days. For not one from his seed will succeed, a man sitting on the throne of David and ruling any more in Judah.
