Jeremiah 35:6-10 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
6 But they replied, "We do not drink wine, because our forefather Jonadab1 son of Recab gave us this command: 'Neither you nor your descendants must ever drink wine.2 7 Also you must never build houses, sow seed or plant vineyards; you must never have any of these things, but must always live in tents.3 Then you will live a long time in the land4 where you are nomads.' 8 We have obeyed everything our forefather5 Jonadab son of Recab commanded us. Neither we nor our wives nor our sons and daughters have ever drunk wine 9 or built houses to live in or had vineyards, fields or crops.6 10 We have lived in tents and have fully obeyed everything our forefather Jonadab commanded us.
