Jeremiah 301 The word that came to Jeremiah from Jehovah, saying, 2 Thus speaketh Jehovah, the God of Israel, saying, Write thee all the words that I have spoken unto thee in a book. 3 For, lo, the days come, saith Jehovah, that I will ▼ turn again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith Jehovah; and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it. ▼
▼ 1) Or return to4 And these are the words that Jehovah spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah. 5 For thus saith Jehovah: We have heard a voice of trembling, ▼ of fear, and not of peace. ▼
▼ 1) Or, there is fear, and no peace6 Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child: wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness? 7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it. 8 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith Jehovah of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds; and strangers shall no more make him their bondman; 9 but they shall serve Jehovah their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them. 10 Therefore fear thou not, O Jacob my servant, saith Jehovah; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be quiet and at ease, and none shall make him afraid. 11 For I am with thee, saith Jehovah, to save thee: for I will make a full end of all the nations whither I have scattered thee, but I will not make a full end of thee; but I will correct thee in ▼ measure, and will in no wise ▼ leave thee unpunished. ▼
▼ 1) Heb judgment 2) Or hold thee guiltless12 For thus saith Jehovah, Thy hurt is incurable, and thy wound grievous. 13 There is none to plead ▼ thy cause, ▼ that thou mayest be bound up: thou hast no healing medicines. ▼
▼ 1) Or thy cause: for thy wound thou hast no medicines nor plaster 2) Heb for closing up , or pressing14 All thy lovers have forgotten thee; they seek thee not: for I have wounded thee with the wound of an enemy, with the chastisement of a cruel one, for the ▼ greatness of thine iniquity, because thy sins were increased. ▼
▼ 1) Or multitude15 Why criest thou ▼ for thy hurt? thy pain is incurable: for the ▼ greatness of thine iniquity, because thy sins were increased, I have done these things unto thee. ▼
▼ 1) Or for thy hurt, because thy pain is incurable? 2) Or multitude16 Therefore all they that devour thee shall be devoured; and all thine adversaries, every one of them, shall go into captivity; and they that despoil thee shall be a spoil, and all that prey upon thee will I give for a prey. 17 For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith Jehovah; because they have called thee an outcast, saying , It is Zion, whom no man ▼ seeketh after. ▼
▼ 1) Or careth for18 Thus saith Jehovah: Behold, I will ▼ turn again the captivity of Jacob’s tents, and have compassion on his dwelling-places; and the city shall be builded upon its own ▼ hill, and the palace shall ▼
▼ 3be inhabited after its own manner. ▼
▼ 1) Or return to 2) Or mound ; Heb tel 3) Or remain19 And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small. 20 Their children also shall be as aforetime, and their congregation shall be established before me; and I will punish all that oppress them. 21 And their prince shall be of themselves, and their ruler shall proceed from the midst of them; and I will cause him to draw near, and he shall approach unto me: for who is he that ▼ hath had boldness to approach unto me? saith Jehovah. ▼
▼ 1) Heb hath been surety for his heart22 And ye shall be my people, and I will be your God. 23 Behold, the tempest of Jehovah, even his wrath, is gone forth, a ▼ sweeping tempest: it shall burst upon the head of the wicked. ▼
▼ 1) Or gathering24 The fierce anger of Jehovah shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the intents of his heart: in the latter days ye shall understand it.
