View In My Bible
22 And you gave to them this land, which you swore to their ancestorsa to give to them, a land flowing with milk and honey. 23 And they entered and took possession of it, but they did not listen to your voice, and they did not follow your law. They did nothing of all that you commanded to them to do, and you caused to happen [to] them all this disaster. 24 Look, the siege ramps have come up [to] the city to capture it, and the city has been given into the hand of the Chaldeans who are fighting against it, because of the sword, the famine, and the plague, and what you spoke happened, and look, you [are] seeing [it].b 25 Yet you have said to me, Lord Yahweh, "Buy for yourself the field with the money, and call witnesses as witness," though the city has been given into the hand of the Chaldeans.'" 26 And the word of Yahweh came to Jeremiah, {saying},c 27 "Look, I [am] Yahweh, [the] God of all flesh; is {anything}d too difficult for me?" 28 {Therefore}e thus says Yahweh: "Look, I [am] going to give this city into the hand of the Chaldeans, and into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon, and he will capture it. 29 And the Chaldeans, who are fighting against this city, will come and set this city on fire, and they will burn it, and the houses where they have made smoke offerings on their roofs to Baal, and [where] they have devoted libations to other gods, in order to provoke me to anger. 30 For the peoplef of Israel and the peopleg of Judah were doing only evil in my eyes from their youth, for the peopleh of Israel [were] only provoking me to anger by the work of their hands," {declares}i Yahweh. 31 "For this city has been for me [a cause] of my anger and of my wrath from the day that they built it even until this day, [so I will] remove it from my {sight},j 32 because of all the evil of the peoplek of Israel and the peoplel of Judah that they did to provoke me to anger--they, their kings, their officials, their priests, and their prophets, and the menm of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
