1 H1697 The word H3414 which came to Jeremiah H3068 from Yahweh H3117 in the days H3079 of Jehoiakim H1121 the son H2977 of Josiah, H4428 king H3063 of Judah, H559 saying,
2 H1980 Go H1004 to the house H7397 of the Rechabites, H1696 and speak H935 to them, and bring H1004 them into the house H3068 of Yahweh, H259 into one H3957 of the rooms, H3196 and give them wine H8248 to drink.
3 H3947 Then I took H2970 Jaazaniah H1121 the son H3414 of Jeremiah, H1121 the son H2262 of Habazziniah, H251 and his brothers, H1121 and all his sons, H1004 and the whole house H7397 of the Rechabites;
4 H935 and I brought H1004 them into the house H3068 of Yahweh, H3957 into the room H1121 of the sons H2605 of Hanan H1121 the son H3012 of Igdaliah, H376 the man H430 of God, H681 which was by H3957 the room H8269 of the princes, H4605 which was above H3957 the room H4641 of Maaseiah H1121 the son H7967 of Shallum, H8104 the keeper H5592 of the threshold.
5 H5414 I set H6440 before H1121 the sons H1004 of the house H7397 of the Rechabites H1375 bowls H4392 full H3196 of wine, H3563 and cups; H559 and I said H8354 to them, Drink H3196 wine!
6 H559 But they said, H8354 We will drink H3196 no wine; H3122 for Jonadab H1121 the son H7394 of Rechab, H1 our father, H6680 commanded H559 us, saying, H8354 You shall drink H3196 no wine, H1121 neither you, nor your sons, H5704 H5769 forever:
7 H1129 neither shall you build H1004 house, H2232 nor sow H2233 seed, H5193 nor plant H3754 vineyard, H3117 nor have any; but all your days H3427 you shall dwell H168 in tents; H2421 that you may live H7227 many H3117 days H6440 in H127 the land H1481 in which you live.
8 H8085 We have obeyed H6963 the voice H3082 of Jonadab H1121 the son H7394 of Rechab, H1 our father, H6680 in all that he commanded H8354 us, to drink H3196 no wine H3117 all our days, H802 we, our wives, H1121 our sons, H1323 or our daughters;
9 H1129 nor to build H1004 houses H3427 for us to dwell in; H3754 neither have we vineyard, H7704 nor field, H2233 nor seed:
10 H3427 but we have lived in H168 tents, H8085 and have obeyed, H6213 and done H3122 according to all that Jonadab H1 our father H6680 commanded us.
11 H5019 But it happened, when Nebuchadnezzar H4428 king H894 of Babylon H5927 came up H776 into the land, H559 that we said, H935 Come, H935 and let us go H3389 to Jerusalem H6440 for fear H2428 of the army H3778 of the Chaldeans, H6440 and for fear H2428 of the army H758 of the Syrians; H3427 so we dwell H3389 at Jerusalem.
13 H559 Thus says H3068 Yahweh H6635 of Armies, H430 the God H3478 of Israel: H1980 Go, H559 and tell H376 the men H3063 of Judah H3427 and the inhabitants H3389 of Jerusalem, H3947 Will you not receive H4148 instruction H8085 to listen H1697 to my words? H5002 says H3068 Yahweh.
14 H1697 The words H3082 of Jonadab H1121 the son H7394 of Rechab, H6680 that he commanded H1121 his sons, H8354 not to drink H3196 wine, H6965 are performed; H3117 and to this day H8354 they drink H8085 none, for they obey H1 their father's H4687 commandment: H1696 but I have spoken H7925 to you, rising up early H1696 and speaking; H8085 and you have not listened to me.
15 H7971 I have sent H5650 also to you all my servants H5030 the prophets, H7925 rising up early H7971 and sending H559 them, saying, H7725 Return H376 now every man H7451 from his evil H1870 way, H3190 and amend H4611 your doings, H3212 and don't go H310 after H312 other H430 gods H5647 to serve H3427 them, and you shall dwell in H127 the land H5414 which I have given H1 to you and to your fathers: H5186 but you have not inclined H241 your ear, H8085 nor listened to me.
16 H1121 Because the sons H3082 of Jonadab H1121 the son H7394 of Rechab H6965 have performed H4687 the commandment H1 of their father H6680 which he commanded H5971 them, but this people H8085 has not listened to me;
17 H559 therefore thus says H3068 Yahweh, H430 the God H6635 of Armies, H430 the God H3478 of Israel: H935 Behold, I will bring H3063 on Judah H3427 and on all the inhabitants H3389 of Jerusalem H7451 all the evil H1696 that I have pronounced H1696 against them; because I have spoken H8085 to them, but they have not heard; H7121 and I have called H6030 to them, but they have not answered.
18 H3414 Jeremiah H559 said H1004 to the house H7397 of the Rechabites, H559 Thus says H3068 Yahweh H6635 of Armies, H430 the God H3478 of Israel: H8085 Because you have obeyed H4687 the commandment H3082 of Jonadab H1 your father, H8104 and kept H4687 all his precepts, H6213 and done H6680 according to all that he commanded you;
