Jeremiah 11:1-8 (New International Version)

View In My Bible

The Covenant Is Broken

1 This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD: 2 "Listen to the terms of this covenant1 and tell them to the people of Judah and to those who live in Jerusalem. 3 Tell them that this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: 'Cursed2 is the man who does not obey the terms of this covenant-- 4 the terms I commanded your forefathers when I brought them out of Egypt,3 out of the iron-smelting furnace.4' I said, 'Obey5 me and do everything I command you, and you will be my people,6 and I will be your God. 5 Then I will fulfill the oath I swore7 to your forefathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey'8--the land you possess today." I answered, "Amen,9 LORD." 6 The LORD said to me, "Proclaim10 all these words in the towns of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem: 'Listen to the terms of this covenant and follow11 them. 7 From the time I brought your forefathers up from Egypt until today, I warned them again and again,12 saying, "Obey me." 8 But they did not listen or pay attention;13 instead, they followed the stubbornness of their evil hearts.14 So I brought on them all the curses15 of the covenant I had commanded them to follow but that they did not keep.16' "
