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 the Lord 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 you in the belly H3045 I knew H3318 you; and before you came forth H7358 out of the womb H6942 I sanctified H5414 you, and I ordained H5030 you a prophet H1471 unto the nations.
6 H559 Then said H162 I, Ah, H136 Lord H3069 God! H3045 behold, I cannot H1696 speak: H5288 for I am a child.
7 H3068 But the Lord H559 said H559 unto me, Say H5288 not, I am a child: H3212 for you shall go H7971 to all that I shall send H6680 you, and whatever I command H1696 you you shall speak.
8 H3372 Be not afraid H6440 of their faces: H5337 for I am with you to deliver H5002 you, says H3068 the Lord.
9 H3068 Then the Lord H7971 put forth H3027 his hand, H5060 and touched H6310 my mouth. H3068 And the Lord H559 said H5414 unto me, Behold, I have put H1697 my words H6310 in your mouth.
10 H7200 See, H3117 I have this day H6485 set H1471 you over the nations H4467 and over the kingdoms, H5428 to root out, H5422 and to pull down, H6 and to destroy, H2040 and to throw down, H1129 to build, H5193 and to plant.
11 H1697 Moreover the word H3068 of the Lord H559 came unto me, saying, H3414 Jeremiah, H7200 what see H559 you? And I said, H7200 I see H4731 a rod H8247 of a almond tree.
12 H559 Then said H3068 the Lord H3190 unto me, You have well H7200 seen: H8245 for I will hasten H1697 my word H6213 to perform it.
13 H1697 And the word H3068 of the Lord H8145 came unto me the second time, H559 saying, H7200 What see H559 you? And I said, H7200 I see H5301 a seething H5518 pot; H6440 and the face H6440 there is toward H6828 the north.
14 H3068 Then the Lord H559 said H6828 unto me, Out of the north H7451 a evil H6605 shall break forth H3427 upon all the inhabitants H776 of the land.
15 H7121 For, behold, I will call H4940 all the families H4467 of the kingdoms H6828 of the north, H5002 says H3068 the Lord; H935 and they shall come, H5414 and they shall set H376 every one H3678 his throne H6607 at the entering H8179 of the gates H3389 of Jerusalem, H2346 and against all the walls H5439 there 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 who have forsaken H6999 me, and have burned incense H312 unto other H430 gods, H7812 and worshiped H4639 the works H3027 of their own hands.
17 H247 You therefore clothe up H4975 your body, H6965 and arise, H1696 and speak H6680 unto them all that I command H2865 you: be not dismayed H6440 at their faces, H2865 lest I confound H6440 you before them.
18 H589 For, behold, I H5414 have made H3117 you this day H4013 a fortified H5892 city, H1270 and a iron H5982 pillar, H5178 and bronze H2346 walls H776 against the whole land, H4428 against the kings H3063 of Judah, H8269 against the princes H3548 there, against the priests H5971 there, and against the people H776 of the land.
