Jeremiah 1

Index Next chapter
1 The words of Jeremiah the son of Helkine, from the priests at Anathoth, in the land of Benjamin,
2 to whom was the word of the Lord in the days of Josiah the son of Amon king of Judah in the thirteenth year of his reign,
3 and also in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, until the end of the eleventh year of Zedekiah, son of Josiah king of Judah, before the resettlement of Jerusalem in the fifth month.

4 And the word of the Lord came to me:
5 before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, and before you came out of the womb, I sanctified you: He made you a prophet to the nations.
6 And I said: oh Lord God! I cannot speak, for I am still young.
7 But the Lord said to me: do not say: `I am young '; for to all whom I send you you will go, and all that I command you, you will say.
eight Do not be afraid of them; for I am with you to deliver you, the Lord said.
nine And the Lord stretched out His hand, and touched my mouth, and the Lord said to me: Behold, I have put My words in your mouth.
ten Look, I put you this day over nations and kingdoms to root and ruin, to destroy and destroy, to build and plant.

eleven And the word of the Lord came to me: what do you see, Jeremiah? I said: I see the rod of the almond tree.
12 The Lord said to me: you see correctly; for I am awake over my word, that it may soon be fulfilled.
13 And the word of the Lord came to me another time: what do you see? I said: I see a boiling pot blown by the wind, and his face is from the north.
fourteen And the Lord said to me: from the north will be a calamity for all the inhabitants of this land.
fifteen For behold, I will call on all the tribes of the northern kingdoms, says the Lord, and they will come and set each throne at the entrance to the gates of Jerusalem, and around all its walls, and in all the cities of Judea.
16 And I will pronounce My judgments on them for all their iniquities, because they left Me, and incense burned to foreign gods and worshiped the works of their hands.
17 But you will sing your loins, and rise and tell them all that I will command you; do not be faint-hearted before them, lest I strike you in their eyes.
18 And now, I have set you now as a fortified city and an iron pillar and a copper wall on all this earth, against the kings of Judah, against his princes, against his priests and against the people of this land.
19 They will fight against you, but they will not overcome you; for I am with you, says the Lord, to deliver you.
