Thus says Yah Veh to me; Work yourself bonds and yoke poles and give them on your neck;
and send them to the sovereign of Edom and to the sovereign of Moab and to the sovereign of the sons of Ammon and to the sovereign of Sor and to the sovereign of Sidon by the hand of the angels who come to Yeru Shalem - to Sidqi Yah sovereign of Yah Hudah:
and misvah them, saying to their adonim, Thus says Yah Veh Sabaoth Elohim of Yisra El: Thus say to your adonim:
I - I worked the earth with humanity and the animal on the face of the earth by my great strength and by my spread arm; and gave it to whom were straight in my eyes.
And now I give all these lands into the hand of Nebukadnets Tsar sovereign of Babel, my servant; and I also give him the live beings of the field to serve him:
and all goyim serve him and his son and sons of his son until the very time of his land comes: and then many goyim and great sovereigns have him to serve.
And so be it, the goyim and sovereigndom who serve not the same Nebukadnets Tsar sovereign of Babel - who give not their neck under the yoke of the sovereign of Babel, I visit on that goyim - an oracle of Yah Veh, with the sword and with the famine and with the pestilence until I consume them by his hand.
And you, hearken neither to your prophets nor to your diviners nor to your dreamers nor to your cloudgazers nor to your sorcerers who speak to you, saying, You, serve not the sovereign of Babel:
for they prophesy a falsehood to you to remove you far from your soil: and that I drive you out and you destruct.
And the goyim who bring their neck under the yoke of the sovereign of Babel and serve him, I leave in their own soil - an oracle of Yah Veh to serve it and settle therein.
And I worded to Sidqi Yah sovereign of Yah Hudah according to all these words, saying, Bring your necks under the yoke of the sovereign of Babel; and serve him and his people, and live.
Why die - you and your people, by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence, as Yah Veh worded against the goyim who serve not the sovereign of Babel?
And hearken not to the words of the prophets who say to you, saying, You, serve not the sovereign of Babel: for they prophesy a falsehood to you:
for I sent them not - an oracle of Yah Veh: yet they prophesy a falsehood in my name; so that I drive you out and that you destruct - you and the prophets who prophesy to you.
And I worded to the priests and to all this people, saying, Thus says Yah Veh: Hearken not to the words of your prophets who prophesy to you, saying, Behold, the instruments of the house of Yah Veh now return quickly from Babel! - for they prophesy a falsehood to you.
Hearken not to them; serve the sovereign of Babel, and live: why have this city become parched?
And if they are prophets, and if the word of Yah Veh is with them, have them, I beseech, intercede to Yah Veh Sabaoth, so that the instruments remaining in the house of Yah Veh and in the house of the sovereign of Yah Hudah and at Yeru Shalem go not to Babel.
For thus says Yah Veh Sabaoth concerning the pillars and concerning the sea and concerning the bases, and concerning the rest of the instruments remaining in this city,
which Nebukadnets Tsar sovereign of Babel took not, when he exiled Yechon Yah the son of Yah Yaqim sovereign of Yah Hudah from Yeru Shalem to Babel, and all the nobles of Yah Hudah and Yeru Shalem;
Yes, thus says Yah Veh Sabaoth, Elohim of Yisra El, concerning the instruments that remain in the house of Yah Veh, and in the house of the sovereign of Yah Hudah and of Yeru Shalem:
They are carried to Babel - to be there until the day I visit them - an oracle of Yah Veh: then I ascend them and return them to this place.
