1 H1697 The words H3414 of Jeremiah H1121 the son H2518 of Hilkiah, H3548 of the priests H6068 that were in Anathoth H776 in the land H1144 of Benjamin:
2 H834 To whom H1697 the word H3068 of the LORD H1961 came H3117 in the days H2977 of Josiah H1121 the son H526 of Amon H4428 king H3063 of Judah, H7969 in the thirteenth H6240 H8141 year H4427 of his reign.
3 H1961 It came H3117 also in the days H3079 of Jehoiakim H1121 the son H2977 of Josiah H4428 king H3063 of Judah, H8537 to the end H6240 of the eleventh H8141 year H6667 of Zedekiah H1121 the son H2977 of Josiah H4428 king H3063 of Judah, H1540 to the carrying H3389 away of Jerusalem H1540 captive H2549 in the fifth H2320 month.
5 H2962 Before H3335 I formed H990 you in the belly H3045 I knew H2962 you; and before H3318 you came H3318 forth H7358 out of the womb H6942 I sanctified H5414 you, and I ordained H5030 you a prophet H1471 to the nations.
6 H559 Then said H162 I, Ah, H136 Lord H3069 GOD! H2009 behold, H3808 I cannot H1696 speak: H5288 for I am a child.
7 H3068 But the LORD H559 said H559 to me, Say H5288 not, I am a child: H3212 for you shall go H3605 to all H7971 that I shall send H3605 you, and whatever H834 H6680 I command H1696 you you shall speak.
8 H3372 Be not afraid H6440 of their faces: H5337 for I am with you to deliver H5002 you, said H3068 the LORD.
9 H3068 Then the LORD H7971 put H7971 forth H3027 his hand, H5060 and touched H6310 my mouth. H3068 And the LORD H559 said H2009 to me, Behold, H5414 I have put H1697 my words H6310 in your mouth.
10 H7200 See, H2088 I have this H3117 day H6485 set H5921 you over H1471 the nations H5921 and over H4467 the kingdoms, H5428 to root H5422 out, and to pull H6 down, and to destroy, H2040 and to throw H2040 down, H1129 to build, H5193 and to plant.
11 H1697 Moreover the word H3068 of the LORD H1961 came H559 to me, saying, H3414 Jeremiah, H4100 what H7200 see H559 you? And I said, H7200 I see H4731 a rod H8247 of an almond tree.
12 H559 Then said H3068 the LORD H3190 to me, You have well H7200 seen: H8245 for I will hasten H1697 my word H6213 to perform it.
13 H1697 And the word H3068 of the LORD H1961 came H8145 to me the second H559 time, saying, H4100 What H7200 see H559 you? And I said, H7200 I see H5301 a seething H5518 pot; H6440 and the face H6440 thereof is toward H6828 the north.
14 H3068 Then the LORD H559 said H6828 to me, Out of the north H7451 an evil H6605 shall break H3605 forth on all H3427 the inhabitants H776 of the land.
15 H2009 For, see, H7121 I will call H3605 all H4940 the families H4467 of the kingdoms H6828 of the north, H5002 said H3068 the LORD; H935 and they shall come, H5414 and they shall set H376 every H376 one H3678 his throne H6607 at the entering H8179 of the gates H3389 of Jerusalem, H5921 and against H3605 all H2346 the walls H5439 thereof round H5921 about, and against H3605 all H5892 the cities H3063 of Judah.
16 H1696 And I will utter H4941 my judgments H5921 against H5921 them touching H3605 all H7451 their wickedness, H5800 who have forsaken H6999 me, and have burned H6999 incense H312 to other H430 gods, H7812 and worshipped H4639 the works H3027 of their own hands.
17 H2296 You therefore gird H4975 up your loins, H6965 and arise, H1696 and speak H3605 to them all H6680 that I command H2865 you: be not dismayed H6440 at their faces, H6435 lest H2865 I confound H6440 you before them.
18 H2009 For, behold, H5414 I have made H3117 you this day H4013 a defended H5892 city, H1270 and an iron H5982 pillar, H5178 and brazen H2346 walls H5921 against H3605 the whole H776 land, H4428 against the kings H3063 of Judah, H8269 against the princes H3548 thereof, against the priests H5971 thereof, and against the people H776 of the land.
