1 H3068 The Lord H7200 showed H8147 me, and, behold, two H1736 baskets H8384 of figs H3259 were set H6440 before H1964 the temple H3068 of the Lord, H310 after H5019 that Nebuchadrezzar H4428 king H894 of Babylon H1540 had carried away captive H3204 Jeconiah H1121 the son H3079 of Jehoiakim H4428 king H3063 of Judah, H8269 and the princes H3063 of Judah, H2796 with the carpenters H4525 and smiths, H3389 from Jerusalem, H935 and had brought H894 them to Babylon.
2 H259 One H1731 basket H3966 had very H2896 good H8384 figs, H8384 even like the figs H1073 that are first ripe: H259 and the other H1731 basket H3966 had very H7451 naughty H8384 figs, H398 which could not be eaten, H7455 they were so bad.
3 H559 Then said H3068 the Lord H7200 unto me, What see H3414 you, Jeremiah? H559 And I said, H8384 Figs; H2896 the good H8384 figs, H3966 very H2896 good; H7451 and the evil, H3966 very H7451 evil, H398 that cannot be eaten, H7455 they are so evil.
5 H559 Thus says H3068 the Lord, H430 the God H3478 of Israel; H2896 Like these good H8384 figs, H5234 so will I acknowledge H1546 them that are carried away captive H3063 of Judah, H7971 whom I have sent H4725 out of this place H776 into the land H3778 of the Chaldeans H2896 for their good.
6 H7760 For I will set H5869 my eyes H2896 upon them for good, H7725 and I will bring them again H776 to this land: H1129 and I will build H2040 them, and not pull them down; H5193 and I will plant H5428 them, and not pluck them up.
7 H5414 And I will give H3820 them a heart H3045 to know H3068 me, that I am the Lord: H5971 and they shall be my people, H430 and I will be their God: H7725 for they shall return H3820 unto me with their whole heart.
8 H7451 And as the evil H8384 figs, H398 which cannot be eaten, H7455 they are so evil; H559 surely thus says H3068 the Lord, H5414 So will I give H6667 Zedekiah H4428 the king H3063 of Judah, H8269 and his princes, H7611 and the residue H3389 of Jerusalem, H7604 that remain H776 in this land, H3427 and them that live H776 in the land H4714 of Egypt:
9 H5414 And I will deliver H2189 them to be removed H4467 into all the kingdoms H776 of the earth H7451 for their hurt, H2781 to be a reproach H4912 and a proverb, H8148 a taunt H7045 and a curse, H4725 in all places H5080 where I shall drive them.
