1 H7243 And it came to pass in the fourth H8141 year H3079 of Jehoiakim H1121 the son H2977 of Josiah H4428 king H3063 of Judah, H1697 that this word H3414 came to Jeremiah H3068 from the LORD, H559 [H8800] saying,
2 H3947 [H8798] Take H4039 thee a scroll H5612 of a book, H3789 [H8804] and write H1697 in it all the words H1696 [H8765] that I have spoken H3478 to thee against Israel, H3063 and against Judah, H1471 and against all the nations, H3117 from the day H1696 [H8765] I spoke H3117 to thee, from the days H2977 of Josiah, H3117 even to this day.
3 H1004 It may be that the house H3063 of Judah H8085 [H8799] will hear H7451 all the evil H2803 [H8802] which I purpose H6213 [H8800] to do H7725 [H8799] to them; that they may return H376 every man H7451 from his evil H1870 way; H5545 [H8804] that I may forgive H5771 their perversity H2403 and their sin.
4 H3414 Then Jeremiah H7121 [H8799] called H1263 Baruch H1121 the son H5374 of Neriah: H1263 and Baruch H3789 [H8799] wrote H6310 from the mouth H3414 of Jeremiah H1697 all the words H3068 of the LORD, H1696 [H8765] which he had spoken H4039 to him, upon a scroll H5612 of a book.
5 H3414 And Jeremiah H6680 [H8762] commanded H1263 Baruch, H559 [H8800] saying, H6113 [H8803] I am shut up; H3201 [H8799] I cannot H935 [H8800] go H1004 into the house H3068 of the LORD:
6 H935 [H8804] Therefore go H7121 [H8804] thou, and read H4039 in the scroll, H3789 [H8804] which thou hast written H6310 from my mouth, H1697 the words H3068 of the LORD H241 in the ears H5971 of the people H3068 in the LORD'S H1004 house H3117 upon the day H6685 of fasting: H7121 [H8799] and also thou shalt read H241 them in the ears H3063 of all Judah H935 [H8802] that come out H5892 of their cities.
7 H5307 [H8799] It may be they will present H8467 their supplication H6440 before H3068 the LORD, H7725 [H8799] and will return H376 every one H7451 from his evil H1870 way: H1419 for great H639 is the anger H2534 and the fury H3068 that the LORD H1696 [H8765] hath pronounced H5971 against this people.
8 H1263 And Baruch H1121 the son H5374 of Neriah H6213 [H8799] did H3414 according to all that Jeremiah H5030 the prophet H6680 [H8765] commanded H7121 [H8800] him, reading H5612 in the book H1697 the words H3068 of the LORD H3068 in the LORD'S H1004 house.
9 H2549 And it came to pass in the fifth H8141 year H3079 of Jehoiakim H1121 the son H2977 of Josiah H4428 king H3063 of Judah, H8671 in the ninth H2320 month, H7121 [H8804] that they called H6685 a fast H6440 before H3068 the LORD H5971 to all the people H3389 in Jerusalem, H5971 and to all the people H935 [H8802] that came H5892 from the cities H3063 of Judah H3389 to Jerusalem.
10 H1263 Then Baruch H7121 [H8799] read H5612 in the book H1697 the words H3414 of Jeremiah H1004 in the house H3068 of the LORD, H3957 in the chamber H1587 of Gemariah H1121 the son H8227 of Shaphan H5608 [H8802] the scribe, H5945 in the higher H2691 court, H6607 at the entrance H2319 of the new H8179 gate H3068 of the LORD'S H1004 house, H241 in the ears H5971 of all the people.
11 H4321 When Michaiah H1121 the son H1587 of Gemariah, H1121 the son H8227 of Shaphan, H8085 [H8799] had heard H5612 out of the book H1697 all the words H3068 of the LORD,
12 H3381 [H8799] Then he went down H4428 into the king's H1004 house, H5608 [H8802] into the scribe's H3957 chamber: H8269 and, lo, all the princes H3427 [H8802] sat H476 there, even Elishama H5608 [H8802] the scribe, H1806 and Delaiah H1121 the son H8098 of Shemaiah, H494 and Elnathan H1121 the son H5907 of Achbor, H1587 and Gemariah H1121 the son H8227 of Shaphan, H6667 and Zedekiah H1121 the son H2608 of Hananiah, H8269 and all the princes.
13 H4321 Then Michaiah H5046 [H8686] declared H1697 to them all the words H8085 [H8804] that he had heard, H1263 when Baruch H7121 [H8800] read H5612 the book H241 in the ears H5971 of the people.
14 H8269 Therefore all the princes H7971 [H8799] sent H3065 Jehudi H1121 the son H5418 of Nethaniah, H1121 the son H8018 of Shelemiah, H1121 the son H3570 of Cushi, H1263 to Baruch, H559 [H8800] saying, H3947 [H8798] Take H3027 in thy hand H4039 the scroll H7121 [H8804] in which thou hast read H241 in the ears H5971 of the people, H3212 [H8798] and come. H1263 So Baruch H1121 the son H5374 of Neriah H3947 [H8799] took H4039 the scroll H3027 in his hand, H935 [H8799] and came to them.
15 H559 [H8799] And they said H3427 [H8798] to him, Sit down H7121 [H8798] now, and read H241 it in our ears. H1263 So Baruch H7121 [H8799] read H241 it in their ears.
16 H8085 [H8800] Now it came to pass, when they had heard H1697 all the words, H6342 [H8804] they were afraid H413 both H376 one H7453 and another, H559 [H8799] and said H1263 to Baruch, H5046 [H8687] We will surely H5046 [H8686] tell H4428 the king H1697 of all these words.
17 H7592 [H8804] And they asked H1263 Baruch, H559 [H8800] saying, H5046 [H8685] Tell H3789 [H8804] us now, How didst thou write H1697 all these words H6310 at his mouth?
18 H1263 Then Baruch H559 [H8799] answered H7121 [H8799] them, He pronounced H1697 all these words H6310 to me with his mouth, H3789 [H8802] and I wrote H1773 them with ink H5612 in the book.
19 H559 [H8799] Then said H8269 the princes H1263 to Baruch, H3212 [H8798] Go, H5641 [H8734] hide H3414 thyself, thou and Jeremiah; H376 and let no man H3045 [H8799] know H375 where ye are.
20 H935 [H8799] And they went in H4428 to the king H2691 into the court, H6485 [H8689] but they laid up H4039 the scroll H3957 in the chamber H476 of Elishama H5608 [H8802] the scribe, H5046 [H8686] and told H1697 all the words H241 in the ears H4428 of the king.
21 H4428 So the king H7971 [H8799] sent H3065 Jehudi H3947 [H8800] to bring H4039 the scroll: H3947 [H8799] and he took H3957 it out of the chamber H476 of Elishama H5608 [H8802] the scribe. H3065 And Jehudi H7121 [H8799] read H241 it in the ears H4428 of the king, H241 and in the ears H8269 of all the princes H5975 [H8802] who stood H5921 beside H4428 the king.
22 H4428 Now the king H3427 [H8802] sat H1004 H2779 in the winterhouse H8671 in the ninth H2320 month: H254 and there was a fire on the hearth H1197 [H8794] burning H6440 before him.
23 H3065 And it came to pass, that when Jehudi H7121 [H8800] had read H7969 three H702 or four H1817 leaves, H7167 [H8799] he cut H8593 H5608 [H8802] it with the scribe's penknife, H7993 [H8687] and cast H784 it into the fire H254 that was on the hearth, H4039 until all the roll H8552 [H8800] was consumed H784 in the fire H254 that was on the hearth.
24 H6342 [H8804] Yet they were not afraid, H7167 [H8804] nor tore H899 their garments, H4428 neither the king, H5650 nor any of his servants H8085 [H8802] that heard H1697 all these words.
25 H494 Nevertheless Elnathan H1806 and Delaiah H1587 and Gemariah H6293 [H8689] had made intercession H4428 to the king H8313 [H8800] that he would not burn H4039 the scroll: H8085 [H8804] but he would not hear them.
26 H4428 But the king H6680 [H8762] commanded H3396 Jerahmeel H1121 the son H4429 of Hammelech, H8304 and Seraiah H1121 the son H5837 of Azriel, H8018 and Shelemiah H1121 the son H5655 of Abdeel, H3947 [H8800] to take H1263 Baruch H5608 [H8802] the scribe H3414 and Jeremiah H5030 the prophet: H3068 but the LORD H5641 [H8686] hid them.
27 H1697 Then the word H3068 of the LORD H3414 came to Jeremiah, H310 after H4428 that the king H8313 [H8800] had burned H4039 the scroll, H1697 and the words H1263 which Baruch H3789 [H8804] wrote H6310 at the mouth H3414 of Jeremiah, H559 [H8800] saying,
28 H3947 [H8798] Take H7725 [H8798] thee again H312 another H4039 scroll, H3789 [H8798] and write H7223 in it all the former H1697 words H7223 that were in the first H4039 scroll, H3079 which Jehoiakim H4428 king H3063 of Judah H8313 [H8804] hath burned.
29 H559 [H8799] And thou shalt say H3079 to Jehoiakim H4428 king H3063 of Judah, H559 [H8804] Thus saith H3068 the LORD; H8313 [H8804] Thou hast burned H4039 this scroll, H559 [H8800] saying, H3789 [H8804] Why hast thou written H559 [H8800] in it, saying, H4428 The king H894 of Babylon H935 [H8800] shall certainly H935 [H8799] come H7843 [H8689] and decay H776 this land, H7673 [H8689] and shall cause to cease H120 from there man H929 and beast?
30 H559 [H8804] Therefore thus saith H3068 the LORD H3079 concerning Jehoiakim H4428 king H3063 of Judah; H3427 [H8802] He shall have none to sit H3678 upon the throne H1732 of David: H5038 and his dead body H7993 [H8716] shall be cast out H3117 in the day H2721 to the dry heat, H3915 and in the night H7140 to the frost.
31 H6485 [H8804] And I will punish H2233 him and his seed H5650 and his servants H5771 for their perversity; H935 [H8689] and I will bring H3427 [H8802] upon them, and upon the inhabitants H3389 of Jerusalem, H376 and upon the men H3063 of Judah, H7451 all the evil H1696 [H8765] that I have pronounced H8085 [H8804] against them; but they hearkened not.
32 H3414 Then Jeremiah H3947 [H8804] took H312 another H4039 scroll, H5414 [H8799] and gave H1263 it to Baruch H5608 [H8802] the scribe, H1121 the son H5374 of Neriah; H3789 [H8799] who wrote H6310 in it from the mouth H3414 of Jeremiah H1697 all the words H5612 of the book H3079 which Jehoiakim H4428 king H3063 of Judah H8313 [H8804] had burned H784 in the fire: H3254 [H8738] and there were besides added H7227 to them many H1992 like H1697 words.
