The word that came to Yirmeyahu concerning all the people of Yehudah, in the fourth year of Yehoiakim the son of Yoshiyahu, king of Yehudah (the same was the first year of Nevukhadretztzar king of Bavel,)
which Yirmeyahu the prophet spoke to all the people of Yehudah, and to all the inhabitants of Yerushalayim, saying:
From the thirteenth year of Yoshiyahu the son of Amon, king of Yehudah, even to this day, these twenty-three years, the word of the LORD has come to me, and I have spoken to you, rising up early and speaking; but you have not listened.
The LORD has sent to you all his servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, (but you have not listened, nor inclined your ear to hear,)
saying, Return you now everyone from his evil way, and from the evil of your doings, and dwell in the land that the LORD has given to you and to your fathers, from of old and even forevermore;
and don't go after other gods to serve them or worship them, and don't provoke me to anger with the work of your hands; and I will do you no harm.
