Jeremiah 45


The Message to Baruch

1The word which [4spoke 1Jeremiah 2the 3prophet] to Baruch son of Neriah, when he wrote these words in the scroll from the mouth of Jeremiah, in the [2year 1fourth] of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah, saying, 2Thus said the  lord the God of Israel, concerning you, O Baruch. 3For you said, Alas, for the  lord added toil upon my misery. I went to bed in my moanings, [3rest 1I did not 2find]. 4You said to him! Thus said the  lord, Behold, What I built up I demolish, and what I planted I pluck, even all the land of mine. 5And you seek to yourself great things. You should not seek. For behold, I bring bad things upon all flesh, says the  lord. But I will give to you your life for gain in every place wherever you should proceed there.
