Jeremiah 16

Previous chapter Index Next chapter
one And the word of the Lord came to me:
2 do not take your wife, and let you not have any sons or daughters in place of this.
3 For thus says the Lord about the sons and daughters who will be born in this place, and about their mothers who will give birth to them, and about their fathers who will produce them on this earth:
4 they will die by heavy deaths and will not be mourned or buried; will be manure on the surface of the earth; They will be destroyed with a sword and hunger, and their corpses will be food for the birds of the air and the beasts of the earth.
5 For thus saith the Lord: Do not go into the house of lamenters, and do not go to weep and pity with them; for I have taken from this people, saith the Lord, my peace and mercy and regret.
6 And the great and small on this earth will die; and they will not be buried, and they will not mourn them, nor torment themselves, nor cut their hair for their sake.
7 And they will not break bread for them in sorrow, in comfort for the dead; and they will not give them cups of comfort to drink according to their father and their mother.
eight Do not go to the house of feast also, to sit with them, eat and drink;
nine for thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: behold, I will cease in this place in your eyes and in your days the voice of joy and the voice of joy, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride.

ten When you tell the people of this land all these words, and they will tell you: `for what did the Lord speak all great tribulation upon us, and what is our untruth, and what is our sin, by which we sinned before the Lord our God? ' -
eleven then tell them: because your fathers left me, saith the Lord, and went after the other gods, and served them, and worshiped them, but they left me, and they did not keep my law.
12 But you do worse than your fathers and live each according to the stubbornness of your evil heart, so as not to listen to Me.
thirteen For this I will throw you out of this land into a land that neither you nor your fathers knew, and there you will serve other gods day and night; for I will not show you mercy.

fourteen Therefore, behold, days come, the Lord says, when they no longer say: 'The Lord lives, who brought the sons of Israel out of the land of Egypt';
fifteen but: `` the Lord lives, who brought the sons of Israel out of the northern land and from all the lands into which he cast them out ': for I will return them to their land, which I gave to their fathers.
sixteen Behold, I will send many fishermen, says the Lord, and they will catch them; and then I will send many hunters, and they will drive them from every mountain, and from every hill, and from ravines of rocks.
17 For my eyes are in all their ways; they are not hidden from My sight, and their unrighteousness is not hidden from My eyes.
18 And I will recompense them first of all for their unrighteousness and for their pure sin, because they defiled My land, filled their vile corpses with their abominations, and filled My inheritance.
19 Lord, my strength and my strength and my refuge on the day of tribulation! The nations will come to you from the ends of the earth and say: `only our fathers inherited a lie, emptiness and that which is of no use. '
twenty Can a man make himself gods, who, however, are not gods?
21 Therefore, behold, I will show them now, I will show them My hand and My power, and they will know that My name is Lord.
