Jeremiah 5

  1 H7751 [H8786] Run ye to and fro H2351 through the streets H3389 of Jerusalem, H7200 [H8798] and see H3045 [H8798] now, and know, H1245 [H8761] and seek H7339 in her broad places, H4672 [H8799] if ye can find H376 a man, H3426 if there is H6213 [H8802] any that executeth H4941 judgment, H1245 [H8764] that seeketh H530 the truth; H5545 [H8799] and I will forgive it.
  2 H559 [H8799] And though they say, H3068 The LORD H2416 liveth; H7650 [H8735] surely they swear H8267 falsely.
  3 H3068 O LORD, H5869 are not thine eyes H530 upon the truth? H5221 [H8689] thou hast stricken H2342 [H8804] them, but they have not grieved; H3615 [H8765] thou hast consumed H3985 [H8765] them, but they have refused H3947 [H8800] to receive H4148 correction: H6440 they have made their faces H2388 [H8765] harder H5553 than a rock; H3985 [H8765] they have refused H7725 [H8800] to return.
  4 H559 [H8804] Therefore I said, H1800 Surely these are poor; H2973 [H8738] they are foolish: H3045 [H8804] for they know H1870 not the way H3068 of the LORD, H4941 nor the judgment H430 of their God.
  5 H3212 [H8799] I will go H1419 to the great men, H1696 [H8762] and will speak H3045 [H8804] to them; for they have known H1870 the way H3068 of the LORD, H4941 and the judgment H430 of their God: H3162 but these have altogether H7665 [H8804] broken H5923 the yoke, H5423 [H8765] and burst H4147 the bonds.
  6 H738 Therefore a lion H3293 from the forest H5221 [H8689] shall slay H2061 them, and a wolf H6160 of the evenings H7703 [H8799] shall spoil H5246 them, a leopard H8245 [H8802] shall watch H5892 over their cities: H3318 [H8802] every one that goeth out H2007 from there shall H2963 [H8735] be torn in pieces: H6588 because their revolts H7231 [H8804] are many, H4878 and their backslidings H6105 [H8804] are increased.
  7 H335 How H5545 [H8799] shall I forgive H2063 thee for this? H1121 thy sons H5800 [H8804] have forsaken H7650 [H8735] me, and sworn H3808 by them that are no H430 gods: H7650 [H8686] when I had fed them to the full, H5003 [H8799] then they committed adultery, H1413 [H8704] and assembled themselves by troops H2181 [H8802] in the harlots' H1004 houses.
  8 H2109 [H8716] They were as fed H5483 horses H7904 [H8688] in the morning: H376 every one H6670 [H8799] neighed H7453 after his neighbour's H802 wife.
  9 H6485 [H8799] Shall I not punish H5002 [H8803] for these things? saith H3068 the LORD: H5315 and shall not my breath H5358 [H8691] be avenged H1471 on such a nation as this?
  10 H5927 [H8798] Go ye up H8284 upon her walls, H7843 [H8761] and decay; H6213 [H8799] but make H3617 not a full end: H5493 [H8685] take away H5189 her battlements; H3068 for they are not the LORD'S.
  11 H1004 For the house H3478 of Israel H1004 and the house H3063 of Judah H898 [H8800] have dealt very H898 [H8804] treacherously H5002 [H8803] against me, saith H3068 the LORD.
  12 H3584 [H8765] They have denied H3068 the LORD, H559 [H8799] and said, H7451 It is not he; neither shall evil H935 [H8799] come H7200 [H8799] upon us; neither shall we see H2719 sword H7458 nor famine:
  13 H5030 And the prophets H7307 shall become wind, H1696 [H8763] and the word H6213 [H8735] is not in them: thus shall it be done to them.
  14 H559 [H8804] Therefore thus saith H3068 the LORD H430 God H6635 of hosts, H1696 [H8763] Because ye speak H1697 this word, H5414 [H8802] behold, I will make H1697 my words H6310 in thy mouth H784 fire, H5971 and this people H6086 wood, H398 [H8804] and it shall devour them.
  15 H935 [H8688] Lo, I will bring H1471 a nation H4801 upon you from far, H1004 O house H3478 of Israel, H5002 [H8803] saith H3068 the LORD: H386 it is a mighty H1471 nation, H5769 it is an ancient H1471 nation, H1471 a nation H3956 whose language H3045 [H8799] thou knowest H8085 [H8799] not, neither understandest H1696 [H8762] what they say.
  16 H827 Their quiver H6605 [H8803] is as an open H6913 burying-place, H1368 they are all mighty men.
  17 H398 [H8804] And they shall eat up H7105 thy harvest, H3899 and thy bread, H1121 which thy sons H1323 and thy daughters H398 [H8799] should eat: H398 [H8799] they shall eat up H6629 thy flocks H1241 and thy herds: H398 [H8799] they shall eat up H1612 thy vines H8384 and thy fig trees: H7567 [H8779] they shall impoverish H2719 with the sword H4013 thy fortified H5892 cities, H2007 in which thou H982 [H8802] didst trust.
  18 H3117 Nevertheless in those days, H5002 [H8803] saith H3068 the LORD, H6213 [H8799] I will not make H3617 a full end with you.
  19 H559 [H8799] And it shall come to pass, when ye shall say, H8478 H4100 Why H6213 [H8804] doeth H3068 the LORD H430 our God H559 [H8804] all these things to us? then shalt thou answer H5800 [H8804] them, As ye have forsaken H5647 [H8799] me, and served H5236 foreign H430 gods H776 in your land, H5647 [H8799] so shall ye serve H2114 [H8801] strangers H776 in a land that is not yours.
  20 H5046 [H8685] Declare H1004 this in the house H3290 of Jacob, H8085 [H8685] and proclaim H3063 it in Judah, H559 [H8800] saying,
  21 H8085 [H8798] Hear H5530 now this, O foolish H5971 people, H3820 and without heart; H5869 who have eyes, H7200 [H8799] and see H241 not; who have ears, H8085 [H8799] and hear not:
  22 H3372 [H8799] Fear H5002 [H8803] ye not me? saith H3068 the LORD: H2342 [H8799] will ye not tremble H6440 at my face, H7760 [H8804] who have placed H2344 the sand H1366 for the bound H3220 of the sea H5769 by a perpetual H2706 statute, H5674 [H8799] that it cannot pass H1530 it: and though its waves H1607 [H8691] toss H3201 [H8799] themselves, yet can they not prevail; H1993 [H8804] though they roar, H5674 [H8799] yet can they not pass over it?
  23 H5971 But this people H5637 [H8802] have a revolting H4784 [H8802] and a rebellious H3820 heart; H5493 [H8804] they have revolted H3212 [H8799] and gone.
  24 H559 [H8804] Neither say H3824 they in their heart, H3372 [H8799] Let us now fear H3068 the LORD H430 our God, H5414 [H8802] that giveth H1653 rain, H3138 both the former H4456 and the latter, H6256 in its time: H8104 [H8799] he reserveth H2708 to us the appointed H7620 weeks H7105 of harvest.
  25 H5771 Your perversities H5186 [H8689] have turned away H2403 these things, and your sins H4513 [H8804] have withheld H2896 good things from you.
  26 H5971 For among my people H4672 [H8738] are found H7563 wicked H7789 [H8799] men: they lie in wait, H7918 [H8800] as he that setteth H3353 snares; H5324 [H8689] they set H4889 a trap, H3920 [H8799] 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 [H8804] therefore they have become great, H6238 [H8686] and have grown rich.
  28 H8080 [H8804] They have become fat, H6245 [H8804] they shine: H5674 [H8804] yea, they exceed H1697 the deeds H7451 of the wicked: H1777 [H8804] they judge H1779 not the cause, H3490 the cause of the fatherless, H6743 [H8686] yet they prosper; H4941 and the right H34 of the needy H8199 [H8804] do they not judge.
  29 H6485 [H8799] Shall I not punish H5002 [H8803] for these things? saith H3068 the LORD: H5315 shall not my breath H5358 [H8691] be avenged H1471 on such a nation as this?
  30 H8047 A wonderful H8186 and horrible thing H1961 [H8738] is committed H776 in the land;
  31 H5030 The prophets H5012 [H8738] prophesy H8267 falsely, H3548 and the priests H7287 [H8799] bear rule H3027 by their means; H5971 and my people H157 [H8804] love H6213 [H8799] to have it so: and what will ye do H319 in its end?
