1 H3068 The LORD H7200 [H8689] showed H8147 me, and, behold, two H1736 baskets H8384 of figs H3259 [H8716] were set H6440 before H1964 the temple H3068 of the LORD H310 , after H5019 Nebuchadnezzar H4428 king H894 of Babylon H1540 [H8687] 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 craftsmen H4525 and smiths H3389 , from Jerusalem H935 [H8686] , 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 bad H8384 figs H398 [H8735] , which could not be eaten H7455 , they were so bad.
3 H559 [H8799] Then said H3068 the LORD H7200 [H8802] to me, What seest H3414 thou, Jeremiah H559 [H8799] ? And I said H8384 , Figs H2896 ; the good H8384 figs H3966 , very H2896 good H7451 ; and the bad H3966 , very H7451 bad H398 [H8735] , that cannot be eaten H7455 , they are so bad.
5 H559 [H8804] Thus saith H3068 the LORD H430 , the God H3478 of Israel H2896 ; Like these good H8384 figs H5234 [H8686] , so will I acknowledge H1546 them that are carried away captive H3063 of Judah H7971 [H8765] , whom I have sent H4725 out of this place H776 into the land H3778 of the Chaldeans H2896 for their good.
6 H7760 [H8804] For I will set H5869 my eyes H2896 upon them for good H7725 [H8689] , and I will bring them again H776 to this land H1129 [H8804] : and I will build H2040 [H8799] them, and not pull them down H5193 [H8804] ; and I will plant H5428 [H8799] them, and not pluck them up.
7 H5414 [H8804] And I will give H3820 them an heart H3045 [H8800] to know H3068 me, that I am the LORD H5971 : and they shall be my people H430 , and I will be their God H7725 [H8799] : for they shall return H3820 to me with their whole heart.
8 H7451 And as the bad H8384 figs H398 [H8735] , which cannot be eaten H7455 , they are so bad H559 [H8804] ; surely thus saith H3068 the LORD H5414 [H8799] , So will I give H6667 Zedekiah H4428 the king H3063 of Judah H8269 , and his princes H7611 , and the remnant H3389 of Jerusalem H7604 [H8737] , that remain H776 in this land H3427 [H8802] , and them that dwell H776 in the land H4714 of Egypt:
9 H5414 [H8804] And I will deliver H2189 H2113 [H8675] 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 [H8686] where I shall drive them.
