Jeremiah 24

Previous chapter Index Next chapter
1 The Lord showed me: and, now, two baskets with figs were set in front of the temple of the Lord, after Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon, brought Jehoniya, the son of Joachim, king of Judah, and the princes of Judea with carpenters and blacksmiths from Jerusalem, and brought them to Babylon:
2 one basket with figs was very good, what are the early figs, and the other basket with figs are very thin, which cannot be eaten because of their worthlessness.
3 And the Lord said to me: what do you see, Jeremiah? I said: figs, figs are good - very good, and thin - very thin, so you can’t eat them, because they are very bad.
4 And the word of the Lord came to me:
5 Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel: like these good figs, I recognize the good immigrants of Judea, whom I sent from this place to the land of the Chaldeans;
6 and I will turn my eyes upon them for the good of them, and bring them back to this land, and I will build them, and not destroy them, and plant them, and not uproot them;
7 and I will give them a heart to know Me that I am the Lord, and they will be My people, and I will be their God; for they will turn to Me with their whole heart.
eight And of the thin figs that cannot be out of their worth, so says the Lord: so I will make Zedekiah the king of Judea, and his princes and other Jerusalemites, remaining in this land and living in the land of Egypt;
nine and I will give them to bitterness and misery in all the kingdoms of the earth, to reproach, to a parable, to ridicule and curse in all the places where I will cast them out.
ten And I will send a sword, famine, and pestilence to them, until I destroy them from the land that I gave them and their fathers.
