Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Then all the captains of the forces, and Yochanan the son of Kareach, and Yezanyah the son of Hosha`yah, and all the people from the least even to the greatest, came near, 1 Then all the army officers, including Johanan son of Kareah and Jezaniah son of Hoshaiah, and all the people from the least to the greatest approached
2 and said to Yirmeyahu the prophet, Let, we pray you, our supplication be presented before you, and pray for us to the LORD your God, even for all this remnant; for we are left but a few of many, as your eyes do see us: 2 Jeremiah the prophet and said to him, "Please hear our petition and pray to the LORD your God for this entire remnant. For as you now see, though we were once many, now only a few are left.
3 that the LORD your God may show us the way in which we should walk, and the thing that we should do. 3 Pray that the LORD your God will tell us where we should go and what we should do."
4 Then Yirmeyahu the prophet said to them, I have heard you; behold, I will pray to the LORD your God according to your words; and it shall happen that whatever thing the LORD shall answer you, I will declare it to you; I will keep nothing back from you. 4 "I have heard you," replied Jeremiah the prophet. "I will certainly pray to the LORD your God as you have requested; I will tell you everything the LORD says and will keep nothing back from you."
5 Then they said to Yirmeyahu, the LORD be a true and faithful witness among us, if we don't do according to all the word with which the LORD your God shall send you to us. 5 Then they said to Jeremiah, "May the LORD be a true and faithful witness against us if we do not act in accordance with everything the LORD your God sends you to tell us.
6 Whether it be good, or whether it be evil, we will obey the voice of the LORD our God, to whom we send you; that it may be well with us, when we obey the voice of the LORD our God. 6 Whether it is favorable or unfavorable, we will obey the LORD our God, to whom we are sending you, so that it will go well with us, for we will obey the LORD our God."
7 It happened after ten days, that the word of the LORD came to Yirmeyahu. 7 Ten days later the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah.
8 Then called he Yochanan the son of Kareach, and all the captains of the forces who were with him, and all the people from the least even to the greatest, 8 So he called together Johanan son of Kareah and all the army officers who were with him and all the people from the least to the greatest.
9 and said to them, Thus says the LORD, the God of Yisra'el, to whom you sent me to present your supplication before him: 9 He said to them, "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, to whom you sent me to present your petition, says:
10 If you will still abide in this land, then will I build you, and not pull you down, and I will plant you, and not pluck you up; for I repent me of the evil that I have done to you. 10 'If you stay in this land, I will build you up and not tear you down; I will plant you and not uproot you, for I am grieved over the disaster I have inflicted on you.
11 Don't be afraid of the king of Bavel, of whom you are afraid; don't be afraid of him, says the LORD: for I am with you to save you, and to deliver you from his hand. 11 Do not be afraid of the king of Babylon, whom you now fear. Do not be afraid of him, declares the LORD, for I am with you and will save you and deliver you from his hands.
12 I will grant you mercy, that he may have mercy on you, and cause you to return to your own land. 12 I will show you compassion so that he will have compassion on you and restore you to your land.'
13 But if you say, We will not dwell in this land; so that you don't obey the voice of the LORD your God, 13 "However, if you say, 'We will not stay in this land,' and so disobey the LORD your God,
14 saying, No; but we will go into the land of Mitzrayim, where we shall see no war, nor hear the sound of the shofar, nor have hunger of bread; and there will we dwell: 14 and if you say, 'No, we will go and live in Egypt, where we will not see war or hear the trumpet or be hungry for bread,'
15 now therefore hear you the word of the LORD, O remnant of Yehudah: Thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra'el, If you indeed set your faces to enter into Mitzrayim, and go to sojourn there; 15 then hear the word of the LORD, O remnant of Judah. This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: 'If you are determined to go to Egypt and you do go to settle there,
16 then it shall happen, that the sword, which you fear, shall overtake you there in the land of Mitzrayim; and the famine, whereof you are afraid, shall follow hard after you there in Mitzrayim; and there you shall die. 16 then the sword you fear will overtake you there, and the famine you dread will follow you into Egypt, and there you will die.
17 So shall it be with all the men who set their faces to go into Mitzrayim to sojourn there: they shall die by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence; and none of them shall remain or escape from the evil that I will bring on them. 17 Indeed, all who are determined to go to Egypt to settle there will die by the sword, famine and plague; not one of them will survive or escape the disaster I will bring on them.'
18 For thus says the LORD of Hosts, the God of Yisra'el: As my anger and my wrath has been poured forth on the inhabitants of Yerushalayim, so shall my wrath be poured forth on you, when you shall enter into Mitzrayim; and you shall be an object of horror, and an astonishment, and a curse, and a reproach; and you shall see this place no more. 18 This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: 'As my anger and wrath have been poured out on those who lived in Jerusalem, so will my wrath be poured out on you when you go to Egypt. You will be an object of cursing and horror, of condemnation and reproach; you will never see this place again.'
19 The LORD has spoken concerning you, remnant of Yehudah, Don't you go into Mitzrayim: know certainly that I have testified to you this day. 19 "O remnant of Judah, the LORD has told you, 'Do not go to Egypt.' Be sure of this: I warn you today
20 For you have dealt deceitfully against your own souls; for you sent me to the LORD your God, saying, Pray for us to the LORD our God; and according to all that the LORD our God shall say, so declare to us, and we will do it: 20 that you made a fatal mistake when you sent me to the LORD your God and said, 'Pray to the LORD our God for us; tell us everything he says and we will do it.'
21 and I have this day declared it to you; but you have not obeyed the voice of the LORD your God in anything for which he has sent me to you. 21 I have told you today, but you still have not obeyed the LORD your God in all he sent me to tell you.
22 Now therefore know certainly that you shall die by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence, in the place where you desire to go to sojourn there. 22 So now, be sure of this: You will die by the sword, famine and plague in the place where you want to go to settle."
