1 H559 Thus said H3068 Jehovah, H1980 Go, H7069 and buy H3335 a potter's H2789 earthen H1228 bottle, H2205 and take of the elders H5971 of the people, H2205 and of the elders H3548 of the priests;
2 H3318 and go forth H1516 unto the valley H1121 of the son H2011 of Hinnom, H6607 which is by the entry H8179 of the gate H2777 Harsith, H7121 and proclaim H1697 there the words H1696 that I shall tell thee;
3 H559 and say, H8085 Hear H1697 ye the word H3068 of Jehovah, H4428 O kings H3063 of Judah, H3427 and inhabitants H3389 of Jerusalem: H559 thus saith H3068 Jehovah H6635 of hosts, H430 the God H3478 of Israel, H935 Behold, I will bring H7451 evil H4725 upon this place, H8085 which whosoever heareth, H241 his ears H6750 shall tingle.
4 H5800 Because they have forsaken H5234 me, and have estranged H4725 this place, H6999 and have burned incense H312 in it unto other H430 gods, H3045 that they knew H1 not, they and their fathers H4428 and the kings H3063 of Judah; H4390 and have filled H4725 this place H1818 with the blood H5355 of innocents,
5 H1129 and have built H1116 the high places H1168 of Baal, H8313 to burn H1121 their sons H784 in the fire H5930 for burnt-offerings H1168 unto Baal; H6680 which I commanded H1696 not, nor spake H5927 it, neither came H3820 it into my mind:
6 H3117 therefore, behold, the days H935 come, H5002 saith H3068 Jehovah, H4725 that this place H7121 shall no more be called H8612 Topheth, H1516 nor The valley H1121 of the son H2011 of Hinnom, H1516 but The valley H2028 of Slaughter.
7 H1238 And I will make void H6098 the counsel H3063 of Judah H3389 and Jerusalem H4725 in this place; H5307 and I will cause them to fall H2719 by the sword H6440 before H341 their enemies, H3027 and by the hand H1245 of them that seek H5315 their life: H5038 and their dead bodies H5414 will I give H3978 to be food H5775 for the birds H8064 of the heavens, H929 and for the beasts H776 of the earth.
8 H7760 And I will make H5892 this city H8047 an astonishment, H8322 and a hissing; H5674 every one that passeth H8074 thereby shall be astonished H8319 and hiss H4347 because of all the plagues thereof.
9 H398 And I will cause them to eat H1320 the flesh H1121 of their sons H1320 and the flesh H1323 of their daughters; H398 and they shall eat H376 every one H1320 the flesh H7453 of his friend, H4692 in the siege H4689 and in the distress, H341 wherewith their enemies, H1245 and they that seek H5315 their life, H6693 shall distress them.
10 H7665 Then shalt thou break H1228 the bottle H5869 in the sight H582 of the men H1980 that go with thee,
11 H559 and shalt say H559 unto them, Thus saith H3068 Jehovah H6635 of hosts: H3602 Even so H7665 will I break H5971 this people H5892 and this city, H7665 as one breaketh H3335 a potter's H3627 vessel, H3201 that cannot H7495 be made whole again; H6912 and they shall bury H8612 in Topheth, H4725 till there be no place H6912 to bury.
12 H6213 Thus will I do H4725 unto this place, H5002 saith H3068 Jehovah, H3427 and to the inhabitants H5414 thereof, even making H5892 this city H8612 as Topheth:
13 H1004 and the houses H3389 of Jerusalem, H1004 and the houses H4428 of the kings H3063 of Judah, H2931 which are defiled, H4725 shall be as the place H8612 of Topheth, H1004 even all the houses H1406 upon whose roofs H6999 they have burned incense H6635 unto all the host H8064 of heaven, H5258 and have poured out H5262 drink-offerings H312 unto other H430 gods.
14 H935 Then came H3414 Jeremiah H8612 from Topheth, H3068 whither Jehovah H7971 had sent H5012 him to prophesy; H5975 and he stood H2691 in the court H3068 of Jehovah's H1004 house, H559 and said H5971 to all the people:
15 H559 Thus saith H3068 Jehovah H6635 of hosts, H430 the God H3478 of Israel, H935 Behold, I will bring H5892 upon this city H5892 and upon all its towns H7451 all the evil H1696 that I have pronounced H6203 against it; because they have made their neck H7185 stiff, H8085 that they may not hear H1697 my words.
