View In My Bible
22 and gave them this land, which You 1swore to their forefathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey. 23 'They 2came in and took possession of it, but they 3did not obey Your voice or 4walk in Your law; they have done nothing of all that You commanded them to do; therefore You have made 5all this calamity come upon them. 24 'Behold, the 6siege ramps have reached the city to take it; and the city is 7given into the hand of the Chaldeans who fight against it, because of the 8sword, the famine and the pestilence; and what You have spoken has 9come to pass; and behold, You see it. 25 'You have said to me, O Lord aGOD, "Buy for yourself the field with money and call in witnesses "-although the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans.' " 26 Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying, 27 "Behold, I am the LORD, the 10God of all flesh; is anything 11too difficult for Me?" 28 Therefore thus says the LORD, "Behold, I am about to 12give this city into the hand of the Chaldeans and into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and he will take it. 29 "The Chaldeans who are fighting against this city will enter and 13set this city on fire and burn it, with the 14houses where people have offered incense to Baal on their roofs and poured out drink offerings to other gods to provoke Me to anger. 30 "Indeed the sons of Israel and the sons of Judah have been doing only 15evil in My sight from their youth; for the sons of Israel have been only 16provoking Me to anger by the work of their hands," declares the LORD. 31 "Indeed this city has been to Me a 17provocation of My anger and My wrath from the day that they built it, even to this day, so that it should be 18removed from before My face, 32 because of all the evil of the sons of Israel and the sons of Judah which they have done to provoke Me to anger -they, their 19kings, their leaders, their priests, their prophets, the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
