1 H1697 The words H3414 of Jeremiah H1121 the son H2518 of Hilkiah, H3548 of the priests H6068 that were in Anathoth H776 in the land H1144 of Benjamin:
2 H1697 to whom the word H3068 of Jehovah H3117 came in the days H2977 of Josiah H1121 the son H526 of Amon, H4428 king H3063 of Judah, H7969 in the thirteenth H8141 year H4427 of his reign.
3 H3117 It came also in the days H3079 of Jehoiakim H1121 the son H2977 of Josiah, H4428 king H3063 of Judah, H8552 unto the end H6249 of the eleventh H8141 year H6667 of Zedekiah, H1121 the son H2977 of Josiah, H4428 king H3063 of Judah, H1540 unto the carrying away H3389 of Jerusalem H1540 captive H2549 in the fifth H2320 month.
5 H2962 Before H3335 I formed H990 thee in the belly H3045 I knew H3318 thee, and before thou camest forth H7358 out of the womb H6942 I sanctified H5414 thee; I have appointed H5030 thee a prophet H1471 unto the nations.
6 H559 Then said H162 I, Ah, H136 Lord H3069 Jehovah! H3045 behold, I know not H1696 how to speak; H5288 for I am a child.
7 H3068 But Jehovah H559 said H559 unto me, Say H5288 not, I am a child; H7971 for to whomsoever I shall send H3212 thee thou shalt go, H6680 and whatsoever I shall command H1696 thee thou shalt speak.
8 H3372 Be not afraid H6440 because of them; H5337 for I am with thee to deliver H5002 thee, saith H3068 Jehovah.
9 H3068 Then Jehovah H7971 put forth H3027 his hand, H5060 and touched H6310 my mouth; H3068 and Jehovah H559 said H5414 unto me, Behold, I have put H1697 my words H6310 in thy mouth:
10 H7200 see, H3117 I have this day H6485 set H1471 thee over the nations H4467 and over the kingdoms, H5428 to pluck up H5422 and to break down H6 and to destroy H2040 and to overthrow, H1129 to build H5193 and to plant.
11 H1697 Moreover the word H3068 of Jehovah H559 came unto me, saying, H3414 Jeremiah, H7200 what seest H559 thou? And I said, H7200 I see H4731 a rod H8247 of an almond-tree.
12 H559 Then said H3068 Jehovah H3190 unto me, Thou hast well H7200 seen: H8245 for I watch H1697 over my word H6213 to perform it.
13 H1697 And the word H3068 of Jehovah H8145 came unto me the second time, H559 saying, H7200 What seest H559 thou? And I said, H7200 I see H5301 a boiling H5518 caldron; H6440 and the face H6440 thereof is from H6828 the north.
14 H3068 Then Jehovah H559 said H6828 unto me, Out of the north H7451 evil H6605 shall break forth H3427 upon all the inhabitants H776 of the land.
15 H7121 For, lo, I will call H4940 all the families H4467 of the kingdoms H6828 of the north, H5002 saith H3068 Jehovah; H935 and they shall come, H5414 and they shall set H376 every one H3678 his throne H6607 at the entrance H8179 of the gates H3389 of Jerusalem, H2346 and against all the walls H5439 thereof round about, H5892 and against all the cities H3063 of Judah.
16 H1696 And I will utter H4941 my judgments H5921 against them touching H7451 all their wickedness, H5800 in that they have forsaken H6999 me, and have burned incense H312 unto other H430 gods, H7812 and worshipped H4639 the works H3027 of their own hands.
17 H247 Thou therefore gird up H4975 thy loins, H6965 and arise, H1696 and speak H6680 unto them all that I command H2865 thee: be not dismayed H6440 at them, H2865 lest I dismay H6440 thee before them.
18 H589 For, behold, I H5414 have made H3117 thee this day H4013 a fortified H5892 city, H1270 and an iron H5982 pillar, H5178 and brazen H2346 walls, H776 against the whole land, H4428 against the kings H3063 of Judah, H8269 against the princes H3548 thereof, against the priests H5971 thereof, and against the people H776 of the land.
