Jeremiah 13

  1 H559 [H8804] Thus saith H3068 the LORD H1980 [H8800] to me, Go H7069 [H8804] and purchase H6593 a linen H232 waistband, H7760 [H8804] and put H4975 it upon thy loins, H935 [H8686] and put H4325 it not in water.
  2 H7069 [H8799] So I bought H232 a waistband H1697 according to the word H3068 of the LORD, H7760 [H8799] and put H4975 it on my loins.
  3 H1697 And the word H3068 of the LORD H8145 came to me the second time, H559 [H8800] saying,
  4 H3947 [H8798] Take H232 the waistband H7069 [H8804] that thou hast bought, H4975 which is upon thy loins, H6965 [H8798] and arise, H3212 [H8798] go H6578 to Euphrates, H2934 [H8798] and hide H5357 it there in a cleft H5553 of the rock.
  5 H3212 [H8799] So I went, H2934 [H8799] and hid H6578 it by Euphrates, H3068 as the LORD H6680 [H8765] commanded me.
  6 H7093 And it came to pass after H7227 many H3117 days, H3068 that the LORD H559 [H8799] said H6965 [H8798] to me, Arise, H3212 [H8798] go H6578 to Euphrates, H3947 [H8798] and take H232 the waistband H6680 [H8765] from there, which I commanded H2934 [H8800] thee to hide there.
  7 H3212 [H8799] Then I went H6578 to Euphrates, H2658 [H8799] and dug, H3947 [H8799] and took H232 the waistband H4725 from the place H2934 [H8804] where I had hid H232 it: and, behold, the waistband H7843 [H8738] was decayed, H6743 [H8799] it was profitable for nothing.
  8 H1697 Then the word H3068 of the LORD H559 [H8800] came to me, saying,
  9 H559 [H8804] Thus saith H3068 the LORD, H7843 [H8686] After this manner will I decay H1347 the pride H3063 of Judah, H7227 and the great H1347 pride H3389 of Jerusalem.
  10 H7451 This evil H5971 people, H3987 who refuse H8085 [H8800] to hear H1697 my words, H1980 [H8802] who walk H8307 in the imagination H3820 of their heart, H3212 [H8799] and walk H310 after H312 other H430 gods, H5647 [H8800] to serve H7812 [H8692] them, and to worship H232 them, shall even be as this waistband, H6743 [H8799] which is good for nothing.
  11 H232 For as the waistband H1692 [H8799] cleaveth H4975 to the loins H376 of a man, H1692 [H8689] so have I caused to cleave H1004 to me the whole house H3478 of Israel H1004 and the whole house H3063 of Judah, H5002 [H8803] saith H3068 the LORD; H5971 that they might be to me for a people, H8034 and for a name, H8416 and for a praise, H8597 and for a glory: H8085 [H8804] but they would not hear.
  12 H559 [H8804] Therefore thou shalt speak H1697 to them this word; H559 [H8804] Thus saith H3068 the LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel, H5035 Every bottle H4390 [H8735] shall be filled H3196 with wine: H559 [H8804] and they shall say H3045 [H8800] to thee, Do we not certainly H3045 [H8799] know H5035 that every bottle H4390 [H8735] shall be filled H3196 with wine?
  13 H559 [H8804] Then shalt thou say H559 [H8804] to them, Thus saith H3068 the LORD, H4390 [H8764] Behold, I will fill H3427 [H8802] all the inhabitants H776 of this land, H4428 even the kings H3427 [H8802] that sit H1732 upon David's H3678 throne, H3548 and the priests, H5030 and the prophets, H3427 [H8802] and all the inhabitants H3389 of Jerusalem, H7943 with drunkenness.
  14 H5310 [H8765] And I will dash H376 them one H251 against another, H1 even the fathers H1121 and the sons H3162 together, H5002 [H8803] saith H3068 the LORD: H2550 [H8799] I will not commiserate, H2347 [H8799] nor spare, H7355 [H8762] nor fondle, H7843 [H8687] but decay them.
  15 H8085 [H8798] Hear H238 [H8685] ye, and give ear; H1361 [H8799] be not proud: H3068 for the LORD H1696 [H8765] hath spoken.
  16 H5414 [H8798] Give H3519 glory H3068 to the LORD H430 your God, H2821 [H8686] before he shall cause darkness, H7272 and before your feet H5062 [H8691] stumble H5399 upon the dark H2022 mountains, H6960 [H8765] and, while ye look H216 for light, H7760 [H8804] he shall turn H6757 it into the shadow of death, H7896 H7896 [H8798] and make H6205 it gross darkness.
  17 H8085 [H8799] But if ye will not hear H5315 it, my breath H1058 [H8799] shall weep H4565 in secret places H6440 for H1466 your pride; H5869 and my eye H1830 [H8799] shall weep H1830 [H8800] bitterly, H3381 [H8799] and run down H1832 with tears, H3068 because the LORD'S H5739 flock H7617 [H8738] is carried away captive.
  18 H559 [H8798] Say H4428 to the king H1377 and to the queen, H8213 [H8685] Humble H3427 [H8798] yourselves, sit down: H4761 for your principalities H3381 [H8804] shall come down, H5850 even the crown H8597 of your glory.
  19 H5892 The cities H5045 of the south H5462 [H8795] shall be shut up, H6605 [H8802] and none shall open H3063 them: Judah H1540 [H8717] shall be carried away captive H7965 all of it, it shall be wholly H1540 [H8717] carried away captive.
  20 H5375 [H8798] Lift up H5869 your eyes, H7200 [H8798] and behold H935 [H8802] them that come H6828 from the north: H5739 where is the flock H5414 [H8738] that was given H8597 thee, thy beautiful H6629 flock?
  21 H559 [H8799] What wilt thou say H6485 [H8799] when he shall punish H3925 [H8765] thee? for thou hast taught H441 them to be captains, H7218 and as chief H2256 over thee: shall not sorrows H270 [H8799] take H802 thee, as a woman H3205 [H8800] in travail?
  22 H559 [H8799] And if thou shalt say H3824 in thy heart, H7122 [H8804] Why come H7230 these things upon me? For the abundance H5771 of thy perversity H7757 are thy skirts H1540 [H8738] uncovered, H6119 and thy heels H2554 [H8738] made bare.
  23 H3569 Can the Ethiopian H2015 [H8799] change H5785 his skin, H5246 or the leopard H2272 his spots? H3201 [H8799] then may H3190 [H8687] ye also do good, H3928 that are accustomed H7489 [H8687] to do evil.
  24 H6327 [H8686] Therefore will I scatter H7179 them as the stubble H5674 [H8802] that passeth away H7307 by the wind H4057 of the wilderness.
  25 H1486 This is thy lot, H4490 the portion H4055 of thy measures H5002 [H8803] from me, saith H3068 the LORD; H7911 [H8804] because thou hast forgotten H982 [H8799] me, and trusted H8267 in falsehood.
  26 H2834 [H8804] Therefore will I uncover H7757 thy skirts H6440 upon thy face, H7036 that thy shame H7200 [H8738] may appear.
  27 H7200 [H8804] I have seen H5004 thy adulteries, H4684 and thy neighings, H2154 the lewdness H2184 of thy harlotry, H8251 and thy abominations H1389 on the hills H7704 in the fields. H188 Woe H3389 to thee, O Jerusalem! H2891 [H8799] wilt thou not be made clean? H5750 H310 when shall it once be?
