Jeremiah 25


The Captivity of Judah

1The word coming to Jeremiah concerning all the people of Judah, in the [2year 1fourth] of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah; it was [2year 1the first] to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon; 2which [4spoke 1Jeremiah 2the 3prophet] to all the people of Judah, and to the ones dwelling in Jerusalem, saying, 3In the thirteenth year of Josiah, son of Amon, king of Judah, and until this day for twenty and three years, that [3came 1the word 2of the  lord] to me, and I spoke to you rising early and speaking, and you listened not. 4And I sent to you my servants the prophets, [2them at dawn 1sending] (and you did not listen, and you did not take heed with your ears), 5saying, Turn indeed each from [3way 1his 2wicked], and from [2wicked 3practices 1your]! and you shall dwell upon the land which I gave to you and to your fathers from the eon and unto the eon. 6Go not after strange gods to serve them! and to do obeisance to them, so that you should not provoke me to anger by the works of your hands so as for me to afflict you. 7And you hearkened not to me. 8On account of this, thus says the  lord, Since you trusted not my words, 9behold, I send and I shall take the family of the north, and I will lead them upon this land, and against the ones dwelling it, and against all the nations round about it. And I will make them quite desolate. And I will appoint them for extinction, and for hissing, and for [2scorn 1everlasting]. 10And I will destroy from them the voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the groom, and the voice of the bride, the scent of perfumed liquid, and the light of a lamp. 11And [4will be 1all 2the 3land] for extinction, and [2shall serve 1these nations] to the king of Babylon seventy years. 12And in the fulfilling the seventy years, I will take vengeance upon the king of Babylon, and upon that nation of their unrighteousness, says the  lord, and upon the land of the Caldeans. And I will appoint them for [2extinction 1everlasting]. 13And I will bring upon that land all my words which I spoke against it, all the things being written in this scroll; 14as many things as Jeremiah prophesied against all the nations, for they laid service against them when they were [2nations 1many] and [2kings 1great]. And I will recompense to them according to their works, according to the actions of their hands.

The Cup of The LORD's Wrath

15Thus said the  lord God of Israel, Take the cup [2wine 1of this undiluted] from out of my hand! and you shall give to drink all the nations to whom I send you unto them. 16And they shall drink, and vomit forth, and shall be driven mad from in front of the sword of which I shall send in the midst of them. 17And I took the cup from out of the hand of the  lord, and I gave to drink all the nations to whom [3sent 4me 1the 2  lord] unto them; 18 Jerusalem, and the cities of Judah, and the king of Judah, and his rulers -- to appoint them for desolation, and for an untrodden land, and for a hissing, and for a curse as this day; 19even Pharaoh king of Egypt, and his children, and his great men, and all his people, 20and all his consolidations, and all the kings of the land of Uz, and all the kings of the Philistines, and Ashkelon, and Gaza, and Ekron, and the remaining of Ashdod, 21and Edom, and Moab, and the sons of Ammon, 22and all the kings of Tyre, and the kings of Sidon, and the kings of the ones on the other side of the sea, 23and Dedan and Tema, and Buz, and all being shaven around his face, 24and all the kings of Arabia, and all the consolidations of the ones resting up in the wilderness, 25and all the kings of Zimri, and all the kings of Elam, and all the kings of the Medes, 26and all the kings from the east wind, the ones at a distance, and of the ones near, each with his brother, and all the kingdoms, the ones upon the face of the earth; and the king of Sheshach shall drink with them. 27And you shall say to them, thus said the  lord almighty, Drink, be intoxicated, and vomit forth, and fall, and in no way rise up from in front of the sword! of which I send in the midst of you. 28And it will be whenever they should not want to take the cup from out of your hand so as to drink, then you shall say, Thus said the  lord of the forces, By drinking you shall drink. 29For in the city upon which [2is named 1my name] by it, I begin to afflict. And you by cleansing in no way shall be cleansed, for [3a sword 1I 2shall call] upon all the ones settling down upon the earth, says the  lord of the forces. 30And you shall prophesy against them all these words, and shall say, The  lord from on high shall execute from [2place 1his holy] he shall give his voice; [2a word 1he will execute] against his place; and thus as ones gathering vintage shall be answered, and against the ones settling upon the earth shall come ruin, 31upon a part of the earth. For judgment is by the  lord among the nations; he himself pleads to all flesh; but the impious shall be given to the sword, says the  lord. 32Thus said the  lord of the forces, Behold, evils come from nation upon nation, and [2tempest 1a great] goes forth from end of the earth. 33And there will be slain by the  lord in that day from a part of the earth, even unto into a part of the earth; in no way shall they be lamented, and in no way shall they be gathered, and in no way shall they be buried, for [2dung 3upon 4the face 5of the 6earth 1they will be]. 34Shout, O shepherds, and cry out! And beat the chest, O rams of the flocks! For [2were filled 1your days] for slaughter, and you shall fall as the [2rams 1choice]. 35And [2shall perish 1flight] from the shepherds, and safety shall flee from the rams of the flocks. 36A sound of a cry of the shepherds, and a shout of the rams, for the  lord annihilated their pastures. 37And [4shall cease 1the 2rest places 3of peace] from the face of the anger of the rage of the  lord. 38He abandoned [2as 3a lion 1his lodging], for [2became 1their land] an untrodden place from in front of the [2sword 1great].
