Jeremiah 14

  1 H1697 The word H3068 of the LORD H3414 that came to Jeremiah H1697 concerning H1226 the dearth.
  2 H3063 Judah H56 [H8804] mourneth, H8179 and her gates H535 [H8797] languish; H6937 [H8804] they are black H776 to the earth; H6682 and the sharp cry H3389 of Jerusalem H5927 [H8804] is gone up.
  3 H117 And their nobles H7971 [H8804] have sent H6810 their little ones H4325 to the waters: H935 [H8804] they came H1356 H1360 [H8676] to the cisterns, H4672 [H8804] and found H4325 no water; H7725 [H8804] they returned H3627 with their vessels H7387 empty; H954 [H8804] they were pale H3637 [H8717] and confounded, H2645 [H8804] and covered H7218 their heads.
  4 H127 Because the soil H2865 [H8804] is parched, H1653 for there was no rain H776 on the earth, H406 the plowmen H954 [H8804] were pale, H2645 [H8804] they covered H7218 their heads.
  5 H365 Yea, the hind H3205 [H8804] also calved H7704 in the field, H5800 [H8800] and forsook H1877 it, because there was no grass.
  6 H6501 And the wild donkeys H5975 [H8804] stood H8205 in the high places, H7602 [H8804] they snuffed up H7307 the wind H8577 like dragons; H5869 their eyes H3615 [H8804] failed, H6212 because there was no grass.
  7 H3068 O LORD, H5771 though our perversities H6030 [H8804] testify H6213 [H8798] against us, do H8034 thou it for thy name's H4878 sake: for our backslidings H7231 [H8804] are many; H2398 [H8804] we have sinned against thee.
  8 H4723 O the hope H3478 of Israel, H3467 [H8688] his liberator H6256 in time H6869 of tightness, H1616 why shouldest thou be as a guest H776 in the land, H732 [H8802] and as a wayfaring man H5186 [H8804] that turneth aside H3885 [H8800] to tarry for a night?
  9 H376 Why shouldest thou be as a man H1724 [H8737] dumbfounded, H1368 as a mighty man H3201 [H8799] that cannot H3467 [H8687] liberate? H3068 yet thou, O LORD, H7130 art in the midst H7121 [H8738] of us, and we are called H8034 by thy name; H3240 [H8686] leave us not.
  10 H559 [H8804] Thus saith H3068 the LORD H5971 to this people, H157 [H8804] Thus have they loved H5128 [H8800] to wander, H2820 [H8804] they have not restrained H7272 their feet, H3068 therefore the LORD H7521 [H8804] doth not accept H2142 [H8799] them; he will now remember H5771 their perversity, H6485 [H8799] and punish H2403 their sins.
  11 H559 [H8799] Then said H3068 the LORD H6419 [H8691] to me, Pray H5971 not for this people H2896 for their good.
  12 H6684 [H8799] When they fast, H8085 [H8802] I will not hear H7440 their cry; H5927 [H8686] and when they offer H5930 burnt offering H4503 and an oblation, H7521 [H8802] I will not accept H3615 [H8764] them: but I will consume H2719 them by the sword, H7458 and by the famine, H1698 and by the pestilence.
  13 H559 [H8799] Then said H162 I, Ah, H136 Sovereign H3069 LORD! H5030 behold, the prophets H559 [H8802] say H7200 [H8799] to them, Ye shall not see H2719 the sword, H7458 neither shall ye have famine; H5414 [H8799] but I will give H571 you assured H7965 peace H4725 in this place.
  14 H3068 Then the LORD H559 [H8799] said H5030 to me, The prophets H5012 [H8737] prophesy H8267 lies H8034 in my name: H7971 [H8804] I have not sent H6680 [H8765] them, neither have I commanded H1696 [H8765] them, neither spoken H5012 [H8693] to them: they prophesy H8267 to you a false H2377 vision H7081 and divination, H457 H434 [H8675] and a thing of nought, H8649 and the deceit H3820 of their heart.
  15 H559 [H8804] Therefore thus saith H3068 the LORD H5030 concerning the prophets H5012 [H8737] that prophesy H8034 in my name, H7971 [H8804] and I sent H559 [H8802] them not, yet they say, H2719 Sword H7458 and famine H776 shall not be in this land; H2719 By sword H7458 and famine H5030 shall those prophets H8552 [H8735] be consumed.
  16 H5971 And the people H5012 [H8737] to whom they prophesy H7993 [H8716] shall be cast out H2351 in the streets H3389 of Jerusalem H6440 because H7458 of the famine H2719 and the sword; H6912 [H8764] and they shall have none to bury H1992 them, H802 them, their wives, H1121 nor their sons, H1323 nor their daughters: H8210 [H8804] for I will pour H7451 their evil upon them.
  17 H559 [H8804] Therefore thou shalt say H1697 this word H5869 to them; Let my eyes H3381 [H8799] run down H1832 with tears H3915 night H3119 and day, H1820 [H8799] and let them not cease: H1330 for the virgin H1323 daughter H5971 of my people H7665 [H8738] is broken H1419 with a great H7667 breach, H3966 with a very H2470 [H8737] grievous H4347 blow.
  18 H3318 [H8804] If I go forth H7704 into the field, H2491 then behold the slain H2719 with the sword! H935 [H8804] and if I enter H5892 into the city, H8463 then behold them that are sick H7458 with famine! H5030 yea, both the prophet H3548 and the priest H5503 [H8804] go about H776 into a land H3045 [H8804] that they know not.
  19 H3988 [H8800] Hast thou utterly H3988 [H8804] rejected H3063 Judah? H5315 hath thy breath H1602 [H8804] abhorred H6726 Zion? H5221 [H8689] why hast thou smitten H4832 us, and there is no healing H6960 [H8763] for us? we looked H7965 for peace, H2896 and there is no good; H6256 and for the time H4832 of healing, H1205 and behold trouble!
  20 H3045 [H8804] We acknowledge, H3068 O LORD, H7562 our wickedness, H5771 and the perversity H1 of our fathers: H2398 [H8804] for we have sinned against thee.
  21 H5006 [H8799] Do not abhor H8034 us, for thy name's H5034 [H8762] sake, do not disgrace H3678 the throne H3519 of thy glory: H2142 [H8798] remember, H6565 [H8686] break H1285 not thy covenant with us.
  22 H3426 Are there H1892 any among the vanities H1471 of the nations H1652 [H8688] that can cause rain? H8064 or can the heavens H5414 [H8799] give H7241 showers? H3068 art not thou he, O LORD H430 our God? H6960 [H8762] therefore we will wait H6213 [H8804] upon thee: for thou hast made all these things.
