Holy Bible book of
1 The word which came unto Jeremiah from the LORD in the days of Jehoiakim the
son of Josiah king of Judah, saying,
2 Go unto the house of the Rechabites, and speak unto them, and bring them
into the house of the LORD, into one of the chambers, and give them wine to
3 Then I took Jaazaniah the son of Jeremiah, the son of Habaziniah, and his
brethren, and all his sons, and the whole house of the Rechabites;
4 And I brought them into the house of the LORD, into the chamber of the sons
of Hanan, the son of Igdaliah, a man of God, which was by the chamber of the
princes, which was above the chamber of Maaseiah the son of Shallum, the
keeper of the door:
5 And I set before the sons of the house of the Rechabites pots full of wine,
and cups, and I said unto them, Drink ye wine.
6 But they said, We will drink no wine: for Jonadab the son of Rechab our
father commanded us, saying, Ye shall drink no wine, neither ye, nor your sons
7 Neither shall ye build house, nor sow seed, nor plant vineyard, nor have
any: but all your days ye shall dwell in tents; that ye may live many days in
the land where ye be strangers.
8 Thus have we obeyed the voice of Jonadab the son of Rechab our father in all
that he hath charged us, to drink no wine all our days, we, our wives, our
sons, nor our daughters;
9 Nor to build houses for us to dwell in: neither have we vineyard, nor field,
10 But we have dwelt in tents, and have obeyed, and done according to all that
Jonadab our father commanded us.
11 But it came to pass, when Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon came up into the
land, that we said, Come, and let us go to Jerusalem for fear of the army of
the Chaldeans, and for fear of the army of the Syrians: so we dwell at
12 Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah, saying,
13 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Go and tell the men of
Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, Will ye not receive instruction to
hearken to my words? saith the LORD.
14 The words of Jonadab the son of Rechab, that he commanded his sons not to
drink wine, are performed; for unto this day they drink none, but obey their
father’s commandment: notwithstanding I have spoken unto you, rising early and
speaking; but ye hearkened not unto me.
15 I have sent also unto you all my servants the prophets, rising up early and
sending them, saying, Return ye now every man from his evil way, and amend
your doings, and go not after other gods to serve them, and ye shall dwell in
the land which I have given to you and to your fathers: but ye have not
inclined your ear, nor hearkened unto me.
16 Because the sons of Jonadab the son of Rechab have performed the
commandment of their father, which he commanded them; but this people hath not
hearkened unto me:
17 Therefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I
will bring upon Judah and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem all the evil
that I have pronounced against them: because I have spoken unto them, but they
have not heard; and I have called unto them, but they have not answered.
18 And Jeremiah said unto the house of the Rechabites, Thus saith the LORD of
hosts, the God of Israel; Because ye have obeyed the commandment of Jonadab
your father, and kept all his precepts, and done according unto all that he
hath commanded you:
19 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Jonadab the son
of Rechab shall not want a man to stand before me for ever.
