Jeremiah 151 Then said Jehovah unto me, Though Moses and Samuel stood before me, yet my mind would not be toward this people: cast them out of my sight, and let them go forth. 2 And it shall come to pass, when they say unto thee, Whither shall we go forth? then thou shalt tell them, Thus saith Jehovah: Such as are for death, to death; and such as are for the sword, to the sword; and such as are for the famine, to the famine; and such as are for captivity, to captivity. 3 And I will appoint over them four ▼ kinds, saith Jehovah: the sword to slay, and the dogs to ▼
▼ 2tear, and the birds of the heavens, and the beasts of the earth, to devour and to destroy. ▼

▼ 1) Or against the mother and the young men9 She that hath borne seven languisheth; she hath given up the ghost; her sun is gone down while it was yet day; she hath been put to shame and confounded: and the residue of them will I deliver to the sword before their enemies, saith Jehovah. 10 Woe is me, my mother, that thou hast borne me a man of strife and a man of contention to the whole earth! I have not lent, neither have men lent to me; yet every one of them doth curse me. 11 Jehovah said, Verily I will ▼ strengthen thee for good; verily ▼
▼ 2I will cause the enemy to make supplication unto thee in the time of evil and in the time of affliction. ▼
