Jeremiah 5

  1 H7751 "Run back and forth H2351 through the streets H3389 of Jerusalem, H7200 and see H3045 now, and know, H1245 and seek H7339 in the broad places H4672 of it, if you can find H376 a man, H3426 if there are H6213 any who does H4941 justly, H1245 who seeks H530 truth; H5545 and I will pardon her.
  2 H559 Though they say, H3068 ‘As Yahweh H2416 lives;' H7650 surely they swear H8267 falsely."
  3 H3068 O Yahweh, H5869 don't your eyes H530 look on truth? H5221 You have stricken H2342 them, but they were not grieved. H3615 You have consumed H3985 them, but they have refused H3947 to receive H4148 correction. H6440 They have made their faces H2388 harder H5553 than a rock. H3985 They have refused H7725 to return.
  4 H559 Then I said, H1800 "Surely these are poor. H2973 They are foolish; H3045 for they don't know H1870 the way H3068 of Yahweh, H4941 nor the law H430 of their God.
  5 H3212 I will go H1419 to the great men, H1696 and will speak H3045 to them; for they know H1870 the way H3068 of Yahweh, H4941 and the law H430 of their God." H3162 But these with one accord H7665 have broken H5923 the yoke, H5423 and burst H4147 the bonds.
  6 H738 Therefore a lion H3293 out of the forest H5221 shall kill H2061 them, a wolf H6160 of the evenings H7703 shall destroy H5246 them, a leopard H8245 shall watch H5892 against their cities; H3318 everyone who goes out H2007 there shall H2963 be torn in pieces; H6588 because their transgressions H7231 are many, H4878 and their backsliding H6105 is increased.
  7 H335 "How H5545 can I pardon H2063 you? Your H1121 children H5800 have forsaken H7650 me, and sworn H3808 by what are no H430 gods. H7650 When I had fed them to the full, H5003 they committed adultery, H1413 and assembled themselves in troops H2181 at the prostitutes' H1004 houses.
  8 H2109 They were as fed H5483 horses H7904 roaming at large: H376 everyone H6670 neighed H7453 after his neighbor's H802 wife.
  9 H6485 Shouldn't I punish H5002 them for these things?" says H3068 Yahweh; H5315 "and shouldn't my soul H5358 be avenged H1471 on such a nation as this?
  10 H5927 "Go up H8284 on her walls, H7843 and destroy; H6213 but don't make H3617 a full end. H5493 Take away H5189 her branches; H3068 for they are not Yahweh's.
  11 H1004 For the house H3478 of Israel H1004 and the house H3063 of Judah H898 have dealt very H898 treacherously H5002 against me," says H3068 Yahweh.
  12 H3584 They have denied H3068 Yahweh, H559 and said, H7451 "It is not he; neither shall evil H935 come H7200 on us; neither shall we see H2719 sword H7458 nor famine.
  13 H5030 The prophets H7307 shall become wind, H1696 and the word H6213 is not in them. Thus shall it be done to them."
  14 H559 Therefore thus says H3068 Yahweh, H430 the God H6635 of Armies, H1696 "Because you speak H1697 this word, H5414 behold, I will make H1697 my words H6310 in your mouth H784 fire, H5971 and this people H6086 wood, H398 and it shall devour them.
  15 H935 Behold, I will bring H1471 a nation H4801 on you from far, H1004 house H3478 of Israel," H5002 says H3068 Yahweh. H386 "It is a mighty H1471 nation. H5769 It is an ancient H1471 nation, H1471 a nation H3956 whose language H3045 you don't know, H8085 neither understand H1696 what they say.
  16 H827 Their quiver H6605 is an open H6913 tomb, H1368 they are all mighty men.
  17 H398 They shall eat up H7105 your harvest, H3899 and your bread, H1121 which your sons H1323 and your daughters H398 should eat. H398 They shall eat up H6629 your flocks H1241 and your herds. H398 They shall eat up H1612 your vines H8384 and your fig trees. H7567 They shall beat down H4013 your fortified H5892 cities, H2007 in which you H982 trust, H2719 with the sword.
  18 H3117 "But even in those days," H5002 says H3068 Yahweh, H6213 "I will not make H3617 a full end with you.
  19 H559 It will happen, when you say, H8478 ‘Why H3068 has Yahweh H430 our God H6213 done H559 all these things to us?' Then you shall say H5800 to them, ‘Just like you have forsaken H5647 me, and served H5236 foreign H430 gods H776 in your land, H5647 so you shall serve H2114 strangers H776 in a land that is not yours.'
  20 H5046 "Declare H1004 this in the house H3290 of Jacob, H8085 and publish H3063 it in Judah, H559 saying,
  21 H8085 ‘Hear H5530 now this, foolish H5971 people, H3820 and without understanding; H5869 who have eyes, H7200 and don't see; H241 who have ears, H8085 and don't hear:
  22 H3372 Don't you fear H5002 me?' says H3068 Yahweh H2342 ‘Won't you tremble H6440 at my presence, H7760 who have placed H2344 the sand H1366 for the bound H3220 of the sea, H5769 by a perpetual H2706 decree, H5674 that it can't pass H1530 it? and though its waves H1607 toss H3201 themselves, yet they can't prevail; H1993 though they roar, H5674 yet they can't pass over it.'
  23 H5971 "But this people H5637 has a revolting H4784 and a rebellious H3820 heart; H5493 they have revolted H3212 and gone.
  24 H559 Neither do they say H3824 in their heart, H3372 ‘Let us now fear H3068 Yahweh H430 our God, H5414 who gives H1653 rain, H3138 both the former H4456 and the latter, H6256 in its season; H8104 who preserves H2708 to us the appointed H7620 weeks H7105 of the harvest.'
  25 H5771 "Your iniquities H5186 have turned away H2403 these things, and your sins H4513 have withheld H2896 good from you.
  26 H5971 For among my people H4672 are found H7563 wicked H7918 men. They watch, H3353 as fowlers H7789 lie in wait. H5324 They set H4889 a trap. H3920 They catch H582 men.
  27 H3619 As a cage H4392 is full H5775 of birds, H1004 so are their houses H4392 full H4820 of deceit. H1431 Therefore they have become great, H6238 and grew rich.
  28 H8080 They have grown fat. H6245 They shine; H5674 yes, they excell H1697 in deeds H7451 of wickedness. H1777 They don't plead H1779 the cause, H3490 the cause of the fatherless, H6743 that they may prosper; H8199 and they don't judge H4941 the right H34 of the needy.
  29 H6485 "Shall I not punish H5002 for these things?" says H3068 Yahweh. H5315 "Shall not my soul H5358 be avenged H1471 on such a nation as this?
  30 H8047 "An astonishing H8186 and horrible thing H1961 has happened H776 in the land.
  31 H5030 The prophets H5012 prophesy H8267 falsely, H3548 and the priests H7287 rule H3027 by their own authority; H5971 and my people H157 love H6213 to have it so. What will you do H319 in the end of it?
