Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 In the fourth year that Jehoiakim son of Josiah was king of Judah, Baruch wrote down what I had dictated to him. Then I told him 1 This is what Jeremiah the prophet told Baruch son of Neriah in the fourth year of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah, after Baruch had written on a scroll the words Jeremiah was then dictating:
2 that the Lord, the God of Israel, had said, "Baruch, 2 "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says to you, Baruch:
3 you are saying, "I give up! The Lord has added sorrow to my troubles. I am worn out from groaning, and I can't find any rest!' 3 You said, 'Woe to me! The LORD has added sorrow to my pain; I am worn out with groaning and find no rest.' "
4 "But I, the Lord, am tearing down what I have built and pulling up what I have planted. I will do this to the entire earth. 4 [The LORD said,] "Say this to him: 'This is what the LORD says: I will overthrow what I have built and uproot what I have planted, throughout the land.
5 Are you looking for special treatment for yourself? Don't do it. I am bringing disaster on all people, but you will at least escape with your life, wherever you go. I, the Lord, have spoken." 5 Should you then seek great things for yourself ? Seek them not. For I will bring disaster on all people, declares the LORD, but wherever you go I will let you escape with your life.' "
