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 H1697 To whom the word H3068 of the LORD H3117 came 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 [H8800]  .
  3 H3117 It came also in the days H3079 of Jehoiakim H1121 the son H2977 of Josiah H4428 king H3063 of Judah H8552 , unto the end [H8800]   H6249 of the eleventh H6240   H8141 year H6667 of Zedekiah H1121 the son H2977 of Josiah H4428 king H3063 of Judah H1540 , unto the carrying away H3389 of Jerusalem H1540 captive [H8800]   H2549 in the fifth H2320 month.
  4 H1697 Then the word H3068 of the LORD H559 came unto me, saying [H8800]  ,
  5 H2962 Before H3335 I formed [H8799]   H990 thee in the belly H3045 I knew [H8804]   H3318 thee; and before thou camest forth [H8799]   H7358 out of the womb H6942 I sanctified [H8689]   H5414 thee, and I ordained [H8804]   H5030 thee a prophet H1471 unto the nations.
  6 H559 Then said [H8799]   H162 I, Ah H136 , Lord H3069 GOD H3045 ! behold, I cannot [H8804]   H1696 speak [H8763]   H5288 : for I am a child.
  7 H3068 But the LORD H559 said [H8799]   H559 unto me, Say [H8799]   H5288 not, I am a child H3212 : for thou shalt go [H8799]   H7971 to all that I shall send [H8799]   H6680 thee, and whatsoever I command [H8762]   H1696 thee thou shalt speak [H8762]  .
  8 H3372 Be not afraid [H8799]   H6440 of their faces H5337 : for I am with thee to deliver [H8687]   H5002 thee, saith [H8803]   H3068 the LORD.
  9 H3068 Then the LORD H7971 put forth [H8799]   H3027 his hand H5060 , and touched [H8686]   H6310 my mouth H3068 . And the LORD H559 said [H8799]   H5414 unto me, Behold, I have put [H8804]   H1697 my words H6310 in thy mouth.
  10 H7200 See [H8798]   H3117 , I have this day H6485 set [H8689]   H1471 thee over the nations H4467 and over the kingdoms H5428 , to root out [H8800]   H5422 , and to pull down [H8800]   H6 , and to destroy [H8687]   H2040 , and to throw down [H8800]   H1129 , to build [H8800]   H5193 , and to plant [H8800]  .
  11 H1697 Moreover the word H3068 of the LORD H559 came unto me, saying [H8800]   H3414 , Jeremiah H7200 , what seest [H8802]   H559 thou? And I said [H8799]   H7200 , I see [H8802]   H4731 a rod H8247 of an almond tree.
  12 H559 Then said [H8799]   H3068 the LORD H3190 unto me, Thou hast well [H8689]   H7200 seen [H8800]   H8245 : for I will hasten [H8802]   H1697 my word H6213 to perform [H8800]   it.
  13 H1697 And the word H3068 of the LORD H8145 came unto me the second time H559 , saying [H8800]   H7200 , What seest [H8802]   H559 thou? And I said [H8799]   H7200 , I see [H8802]   H5301 a seething [H8803]   H5518 pot H6440 ; and the face H6440 thereof is toward H6828 the north.
  14 H3068 Then the LORD H559 said [H8799]   H6828 unto me, Out of the north H7451 an evil H6605 shall break forth [H8735]   H3427 upon all the inhabitants [H8802]   H776 of the land.
  15 H7121 For, lo, I will call [H8802]   H4940 all the families H4467 of the kingdoms H6828 of the north H5002 , saith [H8803]   H3068 the LORD H935 ; and they shall come [H8804]   H5414 , and they shall set [H8804]   H376 every one H3678 his throne H6607 at the entering H8179 of the gates H3389 of Jerusalem H2346 , and against all the walls H5439 thereof round about H5892 , and against all the cities H3063 of Judah.
  16 H1696 And I will utter [H8765]   H4941 my judgments H5921 against them touching H7451 all their wickedness H5800 , who have forsaken [H8804]   H6999 me, and have burned incense [H8762]   H312 unto other H430 gods H7812 , and worshipped [H8691]   H4639 the works H3027 of their own hands.
  17 H247 Thou therefore gird up [H8799]   H4975 thy loins H6965 , and arise [H8804]   H1696 , and speak [H8765]   H6680 unto them all that I command [H8762]   H2865 thee: be not dismayed [H8735]   H6440 at their faces H2865 , lest I confound [H8686]   H6440 thee before them.
  18 H589 For, behold, I H5414 have made [H8804]   H3117 thee this day H4013 a defenced H5892 city H1270 , and an iron H5982 pillar H5178 , and brasen H2346 walls H776 against the whole 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.
  19 H3898 And they shall fight [H8738]   H3201 against thee; but they shall not prevail [H8799]   H5002 against thee; for I am with thee, saith [H8803]   H3068 the LORD H5337 , to deliver [H8687]   thee.
