1 H3068 The LORD H7200 shewed [H8689] H8147 me, and, behold, two H1736 baskets H8384 of figs H3259 were set [H8716] H6440 before H1964 the temple H3068 of the LORD H310 , after H5019 that Nebuchadrezzar H4428 king H894 of Babylon H1540 had carried away captive [H8687] 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 [H8686] 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 [H8735] H7455 , they were so bad.
3 H559 Then said [H8799] H3068 the LORD H7200 unto me, What seest [H8802] H3414 thou, Jeremiah H559 ? And I said [H8799] H8384 , Figs H2896 ; the good H8384 figs H3966 , very H2896 good H7451 ; and the evil H3966 , very H7451 evil H398 , that cannot be eaten [H8735] H7455 , they are so evil.
5 H559 Thus saith [H8804] H3068 the LORD H430 , the God H3478 of Israel H2896 ; Like these good H8384 figs H5234 , so will I acknowledge [H8686] H1546 them that are carried away captive H3063 of Judah H7971 , whom I have sent [H8765] H4725 out of this place H776 into the land H3778 of the Chaldeans H2896 for their good.
6 H7760 For I will set [H8804] H5869 mine eyes H2896 upon them for good H7725 , and I will bring them again [H8689] H776 to this land H1129 : and I will build [H8804] H2040 them, and not pull them down [H8799] H5193 ; and I will plant [H8804] H5428 them, and not pluck them up [H8799] .
7 H5414 And I will give [H8804] H3820 them an heart H3045 to know [H8800] 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 [H8799] H3820 unto me with their whole heart.
8 H7451 And as the evil H8384 figs H398 , which cannot be eaten [H8735] H7455 , they are so evil H559 ; surely thus saith [H8804] H3068 the LORD H5414 , So will I give [H8799] H6667 Zedekiah H4428 the king H3063 of Judah H8269 , and his princes H7611 , and the residue H3389 of Jerusalem H7604 , that remain [H8737] H776 in this land H3427 , and them that dwell [H8802] H776 in the land H4714 of Egypt:
9 H5414 And I will deliver [H8804] H2189 them to be removed [H8675] H2113 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 whither I shall drive [H8686] them.
