2 Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel, to thee, O Baruch; 2 "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says to you, Baruch:
3 Thou didst say, Woe is me now! for the LORD hath added grief to my sorrow; I fainted in my sighing, and I find no 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 Thus shalt thou say to him, The LORD saith thus; Behold, [that] which I have built I will break down, and that which I have planted I will pluck up, even this whole land. 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 And seekest thou great things for thyself? seek [them] not: for behold, I will bring evil upon all flesh, saith the LORD: but thy life will I give to thee for a prey in all places whither thou goest. 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.' "
