1 H1697 The word H3414 which came to Jeremiah H3068 from the LORD H3117 in the days H3079 of Jehoiakim H1121 the son H2977 of Josiah H4428 king H3063 of Judah, H559 [H8800] saying,
2 H1980 [H8800] Go H1004 to the house H7397 of the Rechabites, H1696 [H8765] and speak H935 [H8689] to them, and bring H1004 them into the house H3068 of the LORD, H259 into one H3957 of the chambers, H3196 and give them wine H8248 [H8689] to drink.
3 H3947 [H8799] Then I took H2970 Jaazaniah H1121 the son H3414 of Jeremiah, H1121 the son H2262 of Habaziniah, H251 and his brethren, H1121 and all his sons, H1004 and the whole house H7397 of the Rechabites;
4 H935 [H8686] And I brought H1004 them into the house H3068 of the LORD, H3957 into the chamber H1121 of the sons H2605 of Hanan, H1121 the son H3012 of Igdaliah, H376 a man H430 of God, H681 who was by H3957 the chamber H8269 of the princes, H4605 which was above H3957 the chamber H4641 of Maaseiah H1121 the son H7967 of Shallum, H8104 [H8802] the keeper H5592 of the door:
5 H5414 [H8799] And I set H6440 before H1121 the sons H1004 of the house H7397 of the Rechabites H1375 pots H4392 full H3196 of wine, H3563 and cups, H559 [H8799] and I said H8354 [H8798] to them, Drink H3196 ye wine.
6 H559 [H8799] But they said, H8354 [H8799] We will drink H3196 no wine: H3122 for Jonadab H1121 the son H7394 of Rechab H1 our father H6680 [H8765] commanded H559 [H8800] us, saying, H8354 [H8799] Ye shall drink H3196 no wine, H1121 neither ye, nor your sons H5704 for H5769 ever:
7 H1129 [H8799] Neither shall ye build H1004 house, H2232 [H8799] nor sow H2233 seed, H5193 [H8799] nor plant H3754 vineyard, H3117 nor have any: but all your days H3427 [H8799] ye shall dwell H168 in tents; H2421 [H8799] that ye may live H7227 many H3117 days H6440 in H127 the land H1481 [H8802] where ye are strangers.
8 H8085 [H8799] Thus have we obeyed H6963 the voice H3082 of Jonadab H1121 the son H7394 of Rechab H1 our father H6680 [H8765] in all that he hath charged H8354 [H8800] us, to drink H3196 no wine H3117 all our days, H802 we, our wives, H1121 our sons, H1323 nor our daughters;
9 H1129 [H8800] Nor to build H1004 houses H3427 [H8800] for us to dwell in: H3754 neither have we vineyard, H7704 nor field, H2233 nor seed:
10 H3427 [H8799] But we have dwelt in H168 tents, H8085 [H8799] and have obeyed, H6213 [H8799] and done H3122 according to all that Jonadab H1 our father H6680 [H8765] commanded us.
11 H5019 But it came to pass, when Nebuchadnezzar H4428 king H894 of Babylon H5927 [H8800] came up H776 into the land, H559 [H8799] that we said, H935 [H8798] Come, H935 [H8799] 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 [H8799] so we dwell H3389 at Jerusalem.
13 H559 [H8804] Thus saith H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts, H430 the God H3478 of Israel; H1980 [H8800] Go H559 [H8804] and tell H376 the men H3063 of Judah H3427 [H8802] and the inhabitants H3389 of Jerusalem, H3947 [H8799] Will ye not receive H4148 instruction H8085 [H8800] to hearken H1697 to my words? H5002 [H8803] saith H3068 the LORD.
14 H1697 The words H3082 of Jonadab H1121 the son H7394 of Rechab, H6680 [H8765] that he commanded H1121 his sons H8354 [H8800] not to drink H3196 wine, H6965 [H8717] are performed; H3117 for to this day H8354 [H8804] they drink H8085 [H8804] none, but obey H1 their father's H4687 commandment: H1696 [H8765] however I have spoken H7925 [H8687] to you, rising early H1696 [H8763] and speaking; H8085 [H8804] but ye hearkened not to me.
15 H7971 [H8799] I have sent H5650 also to you all my servants H5030 the prophets, H7925 [H8687] rising early H7971 [H8800] and sending H559 [H8800] them, saying, H7725 [H8798] Return H376 ye now every man H7451 from his evil H1870 way, H3190 [H8685] and amend H4611 your doings, H3212 [H8799] and go H310 not after H312 other H430 gods H5647 [H8800] to serve H3427 [H8798] them, and ye shall dwell in H127 the land H5414 [H8804] which I have given H1 to you and to your fathers: H5186 [H8689] but ye have not inclined H241 your ear, H8085 [H8804] nor hearkened to me.
16 H1121 Because the sons H3082 of Jonadab H1121 the son H7394 of Rechab H6965 [H8689] have performed H4687 the commandment H1 of their father, H6680 [H8765] which he commanded H5971 them; but this people H8085 [H8804] hath not hearkened to me:
17 H559 [H8804] Therefore thus saith H3068 the LORD H430 God H6635 of hosts, H430 the God H3478 of Israel; H935 [H8688] Behold, I will bring H3063 upon Judah H3427 [H8802] and upon all the inhabitants H3389 of Jerusalem H7451 all the evil H1696 [H8765] that I have pronounced H1696 [H8765] against them: because I have spoken H8085 [H8804] to them, but they have not heard; H7121 [H8799] and I have called H6030 [H8804] to them, but they have not answered.
18 H3414 And Jeremiah H559 [H8804] said H1004 to the house H7397 of the Rechabites, H559 [H8804] Thus saith H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts, H430 the God H3478 of Israel; H8085 [H8804] Because ye have obeyed H4687 the commandment H3082 of Jonadab H1 your father, H8104 [H8799] and kept H4687 all his precepts, H6213 [H8799] and done H6680 [H8765] according to all that he hath commanded you:
