Holy Bible book of
1 In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah
came this word unto Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,
2 Thus saith the LORD to me; Make thee bonds and yokes, and put them upon thy
3 And send them to the king of Edom, and to the king of Moab, and to the king
of the Ammonites, and to the king of Tyrus, and to the king of Zidon, by the
hand of the messengers which come to Jerusalem unto Zedekiah king of Judah;
4 And command them to say unto their masters, Thus saith the LORD of hosts,
the God of Israel; Thus shall ye say unto your masters;
5 I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are upon the ground, by my
great power and by my outstretched arm, and have given it unto whom it seemed
meet unto me.
6 And now have I given all these lands into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the
king of Babylon, my servant; and the beasts of the field have I given him also
to serve him.
7 And all nations shall serve him, and his son, and his son’s son, until the
very time of his land come: and then many nations and great kings shall serve
themselves of him.
8 And it shall come to pass, that the nation and kingdom which will not serve
the same Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, and that will not put their neck
under the yoke of the king of Babylon, that nation will I punish, saith the
LORD, with the sword, and with the famine, and with the pestilence, until I
have consumed them by his hand.
9 Therefore hearken not ye to your prophets, nor to your diviners, nor to your
dreamers, nor to your enchanters, nor to your sorcerers, which speak unto you,
saying, Ye shall not serve the king of Babylon:
10 For they prophesy a lie unto you, to remove you far from your land; and
that I should drive you out, and ye should perish.
11 But the nations that bring their neck under the yoke of the king of
Babylon, and serve him, those will I let remain still in their own land, saith
the LORD; and they shall till it, and dwell therein.
12 I spake also to Zedekiah king of Judah according to all these words,
saying, Bring your necks under the yoke of the king of Babylon, and serve him
and his people, and live.
13 Why will ye die, thou and thy people, by the sword, by the famine, and by
the pestilence, as the LORD hath spoken against the nation that will not serve
the king of Babylon?
14 Therefore hearken not unto the words of the prophets that speak unto you,
saying, Ye shall not serve the king of Babylon: for they prophesy a lie unto
15 For I have not sent them, saith the LORD, yet they prophesy a lie in my
name; that I might drive you out, and that ye might perish, ye, and the
prophets that prophesy unto you.
16 Also I spake to the priests and to all this people, saying, Thus saith the
LORD; Hearken not to the words of your prophets that prophesy unto you,
saying, Behold, the vessels of the LORD’S house shall now shortly be brought
again from Babylon: for they prophesy a lie unto you.
17 Hearken not unto them; serve the king of Babylon, and live: wherefore
should this city be laid waste?
18 But if they be prophets, and if the word of the LORD be with them, let them
now make intercession to the LORD of hosts, that the vessels which are left in
the house of the LORD, and in the house of the king of Judah, and at
Jerusalem, go not to Babylon.
19 For thus saith the LORD of hosts concerning the pillars, and concerning the
sea, and concerning the bases, and concerning the residue of the vessels that
remain in this city,
20 Which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon took not, when he carried away captive
Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah from Jerusalem to Babylon, and all
the nobles of Judah and Jerusalem;
21 Yea, thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, concerning the
vessels that remain in the house of the LORD, and in the house of the king of
Judah and of Jerusalem;
22 They shall be carried to Babylon, and there shall they be until the day
that I visit them, saith the LORD; then will I bring them up, and restore them
to this place.
