Jeremiah 45

The word which Jeremiah the prophet spoke to Baruch son of Neriah, when he wrote these words in the book by the mouth of Jeremiah, in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah. Thus says the Lord to you, O Baruch: Seeing that you have said, Alas! alas! For the Lord has laid a grievous trouble upon me; I lay down in groaning, and I find no rest. Thus you shall say to him, Thus says the Lord: Behold, I pull down those whom I have built up, and I pluck up those whom I have planted. And will you seek great things for yourself? Seek them not. For behold, I bring evil upon all flesh, says the Lord; but I will give to you your life for a prize in every place that you go.
