1 H8269 Then all the captains H2428 of the forces H3110 , and Johanan H1121 the son H7143 of Kareah H3153 , and Jezaniah H1121 the son H1955 of Hoshaiah H5971 , and all the people H6996 from the least H1419 even to the greatest H5066 [H8799] , came near,
2 H559 [H8799] And said H3414 to Jeremiah H5030 the prophet H8467 , We beseech thee, let our supplication H5307 [H8799] be accepted H6440 before H6419 [H8690] thee, and pray H3068 for us to the LORD H430 thy God H7611 , even for all this remnant H7604 [H8738] ; (for we are left H4592 but a few H7235 [H8687] of many H5869 , as thy eyes H7200 [H8802] do behold us:)
3 H3068 That the LORD H430 thy God H5046 [H8686] may show H1870 us the way H3212 [H8799] in which we may walk H1697 , and the thing H6213 [H8799] that we may do.
4 H3414 Then Jeremiah H5030 the prophet H559 [H8799] said H8085 [H8804] to them, I have heard H6419 [H8693] you; behold, I will pray H3068 to the LORD H430 your God H1697 according to your words H1697 ; and it shall come to pass, that whatever thing H3068 the LORD H6030 [H8799] shall answer H5046 [H8686] you, I will declare H4513 0 it to you; I will keep H1697 nothing H4513 [H8799] back from you.
5 H559 [H8804] Then they said H3414 to Jeremiah H3068 , The LORD H571 be a true H539 [H8737] and faithful H5707 witness H6213 [H8799] between us, if we do H1697 not even according to all things H3068 for which the LORD H430 thy God H7971 [H8799] shall send thee to us.
6 H2896 Whether it be good H7451 , or whether it be evil H8085 [H8799] , we will obey H6963 the voice H3068 of the LORD H430 our God H580 , to whom we H7971 [H8802] send H3190 [H8799] thee; that it may be well H8085 [H8799] with us, when we obey H6963 the voice H3068 of the LORD H430 our God.
7 H7093 And it came to pass after H6235 ten H3117 days H1697 , that the word H3068 of the LORD H3414 came to Jeremiah.
8 H7121 [H8799] Then called H3110 he Johanan H1121 the son H7143 of Kareah H8269 , and all the captains H2428 of the forces H5971 who were with him, and all the people H6996 from the least H1419 even to the greatest,
9 H559 [H8799] And said H559 [H8804] to them, Thus saith H3068 the LORD H430 , the God H3478 of Israel H7971 [H8804] , to whom ye sent H5307 [H8687] me to present H8467 your supplication H6440 before him;
10 H7725 [H8800] If ye will still H3427 [H8799] abide H776 in this land H1129 [H8804] , then will I build H2040 [H8799] you, and not pull you down H5193 [H8804] , and I will plant H5428 [H8799] you, and not pluck you up H5162 [H8738] : for I repent H7451 of the evil H6213 [H8804] that I have done to you.
11 H3372 [H8799] Be not afraid H6440 of H4428 the king H894 of Babylon H6440 , of whom H3373 ye are afraid H3372 [H8799] ; be not afraid H5002 [H8803] of him, saith H3068 the LORD H3467 [H8687] : for I am with you to save H5337 [H8687] you, and to deliver H3027 you from his hand.
12 H5414 [H8799] And I will show H7356 mercies H7355 [H8765] to you, that he may have mercy H7725 [H8689] upon you, and cause you to return H127 to your own land.
13 H559 [H8802] But if ye say H3427 [H8799] , We will not dwell H776 in this land H8085 [H8800] , neither obey H6963 the voice H3068 of the LORD H430 your God,
14 H559 [H8800] Saying H935 [H8799] , No; but we will go H776 into the land H4714 of Egypt H7200 [H8799] , where we shall see H4421 no war H8085 [H8799] , nor hear H6963 the sound H7782 of the trumpet H7456 [H8799] , nor hunger H3899 for bread H3427 [H8799] ; and there will we dwell:
15 H8085 [H8798] And now therefore hear H1697 the word H3068 of the LORD H7611 , ye remnant H3063 of Judah H559 [H8804] ; Thus saith H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts H430 , the God H3478 of Israel H7760 [H8800] ; If ye wholly H7760 [H8799] set H6440 your faces H935 [H8800] to enter H4714 into Egypt H935 [H8804] , and go H1481 [H8800] to sojourn there;
16 H2719 Then it shall come to pass, that the sword H3373 , which ye feared H5381 [H8686] , shall overtake H776 you there in the land H4714 of Egypt H7458 , and the famine H1672 [H8802] , of which ye were afraid H1692 [H8799] , shall follow close H310 after H4714 you there in Egypt H4191 [H8799] ; and there ye shall die.
17 H582 So shall it be with all the men H7760 [H8804] that set H6440 their faces H935 [H8800] to go H4714 into Egypt H1481 [H8800] to sojourn H4191 [H8799] there; they shall die H2719 by the sword H7458 , by the famine H1698 , and by the pestilence H8300 : and none of them shall remain H6412 or escape H6440 from H7451 the evil H935 [H8688] that I will bring upon them.
18 H559 [H8804] For thus saith H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts H430 , the God H3478 of Israel H639 ; As my anger H2534 and my fury H5413 [H8738] hath been poured forth H3427 [H8802] upon the inhabitants H3389 of Jerusalem H2534 ; so shall my fury H5413 [H8799] be poured forth H935 [H8800] upon you, when ye shall enter H4714 into Egypt H423 : and ye shall be an execration H8047 , and an horror H7045 , and a curse H2781 , and a reproach H7200 [H8799] ; and ye shall see H4725 this place no more.
19 H3068 The LORD H1696 [H8765] hath said H7611 concerning you, O ye remnant H3063 of Judah H935 [H8799] ; Go H4714 ye not into Egypt H3045 [H8799] : know H3045 [H8800] certainly H5749 [H8689] that I have admonished H3117 you this day.
20 H8582 [H8689] For ye were hypocrites H5315 in your hearts H7971 [H8804] , when ye sent H3068 me to the LORD H430 your God H559 [H8800] , saying H6419 [H8690] , Pray H3068 for us to the LORD H430 our God H3068 ; and according to all that the LORD H430 our God H559 [H8799] shall say H5046 [H8685] , so declare H6213 [H8804] to us, and we will do it.
21 H3117 And now I have this day H5046 [H8686] declared H8085 [H8804] it to you; but ye have not obeyed H6963 the voice H3068 of the LORD H430 your God H7971 [H8804] , nor any thing for which he hath sent me to you.
