1 H1697 The word H834 which H1961 came H3414 to Jeremiah H3068 from the LORD H3117 in the days H3079 of Jehoiakim H1121 the son H2977 of Josiah H4428 king H3063 of Judah, H559 saying,
2 H1980 Go H1004 to the house H7397 of the Rechabites, H1696 and speak H935 to them, and bring H1004 them into the house H3068 of the LORD, H413 into H259 one H3957 of the chambers, H3196 and give them wine H8248 to drink.
3 H3947 Then I took H2970 Jaazaniah H1121 the son H3414 of Jeremiah, H1121 the son H2262 of Habaziniah, H251 and his brothers, H3605 and all H1121 his sons, H3605 and the whole H1004 house H7397 of the Rechabites;
4 H935 And I brought H1004 them into the house H3068 of the LORD, H413 into H3957 the chamber H1121 of the sons H2605 of Hanan, H1121 the son H3012 of Igdaliah, H376 a man H430 of God, H834 which H3957 was by the chamber H8269 of the princes, H834 which H4605 was above H3957 the chamber H4641 of Maaseiah H1121 the son H7967 of Shallum, H8104 the keeper H5592 of the door:
5 H5414 And I set H6440 before H1121 the sons H1004 of the house H7397 of the Rechabites H1375 pots H4392 full H3196 of wine, H3563 and cups, H559 and I said H8354 to them, Drink H3196 you wine.
6 H559 But they said, H8354 We will drink H3808 no H3196 wine: H3122 for Jonadab H1121 the son H7394 of Rechab H1 our father H6680 commanded H559 us, saying, H8354 You shall drink H3808 no H3196 wine, H1121 neither you, nor your sons H5769 for ever:
7 H3808 Neither H1129 shall you build H1004 house, H3808 nor H2232 sow H2233 seed, H3808 nor H5193 plant H3754 vineyard, H3808 nor H3605 have any: but all H3117 your days H3427 you shall dwell H168 in tents; H2421 that you may live H7227 many H3117 days H127 in the land H834 where H8033 H1481 you be strangers.
8 H8085 Thus have we obeyed H6963 the voice H3082 of Jonadab H1121 the son H7394 of Rechab H1 our father H3605 in all H6680 that he has charged H8354 us, to drink H1115 no H3196 wine H3605 all H3117 our days, H802 we, our wives, H1121 our sons, H1323 nor our daughters;
9 H1115 Nor H1129 to build H1004 houses H3427 for us to dwell H3808 in: neither H1961 have H3754 we vineyard, H7704 nor field, H2233 nor seed:
10 H3427 But we have dwelled H168 in tents, H8085 and have obeyed, H6213 and done H3605 according to all H3122 that Jonadab H1 our father H6680 commanded us.
11 H1961 But it came H5019 to pass, when Nebuchadrezzar H4428 king H894 of Babylon H5927 came H413 up into H776 the land, H559 that we said, H935 Come, H935 and let us go H3389 to Jerusalem H6440 for fear H2428 of the army H3778 of the Chaldeans, H6440 and for fear H2428 of the army H758 of the Syrians: H3427 so we dwell H3389 at Jerusalem.
13 H3541 Thus H559 said H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts, H430 the God H3478 of Israel; H1980 Go H559 and tell H376 the men H3063 of Judah H3427 and the inhabitants H3389 of Jerusalem, H3947 Will you not receive H4148 instruction H8085 to listen H1697 to my words? H5002 said H3068 the LORD.
14 H1697 The words H3082 of Jonadab H1121 the son H7394 of Rechab, H6680 that he commanded H1121 his sons H8354 not to drink H3196 wine, H6965 are performed; H2088 for to this H3117 day H8354 they drink H3808 none, H8085 but obey H1 their father’s H4687 commandment: H1696 notwithstanding I have spoken H7925 to you, rising H7925 early H1696 and speaking; H8085 but you listened not to me.
15 H7971 I have sent H3605 also to you all H5650 my servants H5030 the prophets, H7925 rising H7925 up early H7971 and sending H559 them, saying, H7725 Return H4994 you now H376 every man H7451 from his evil H1870 way, H3190 and amend H4611 your doings, H3212 and go H310 not after H312 other H430 gods H5647 to serve H3427 them, and you shall dwell H127 in the land H834 which H5414 I have given H1 to you and to your fathers: H5186 but you have not inclined H241 your ear, H3808 nor H8085 listened to me.
16 H3588 Because H1121 the sons H3082 of Jonadab H1121 the son H7394 of Rechab H6965 have performed H4687 the commandment H1 of their father, H834 which H6680 he commanded H2088 them; but this H5971 people H8085 has not listened to me:
17 H3651 Therefore H3541 thus H559 said H3068 the LORD H430 God H6635 of hosts, H430 the God H3478 of Israel; H2005 Behold, H935 I will bring H3063 on Judah H3605 and on all H3427 the inhabitants H3389 of Jerusalem H3605 all H7451 the evil H1696 that I have pronounced H5921 against H3282 them: because H1696 I have spoken H8085 to them, but they have not heard; H7121 and I have called H6030 to them, but they have not answered.
18 H3414 And Jeremiah H559 said H1004 to the house H7397 of the Rechabites, H3541 Thus H559 said H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts, H430 the God H3478 of Israel; H3282 Because H834 H8085 you have obeyed H4687 the commandment H3082 of Jonadab H1 your father, H8104 and kept H3605 all H4687 his precepts, H6213 and done H3605 according to all H6680 that he has commanded you:
