Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 When Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah, king of Judah, first became king, this word came from the Lord, saying, 1 Early in the reign of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah, this word came from the LORD:
2 This is what the Lord has said: Take your place in the open square of the Lord's house and say to all the towns of Judah, who come into the Lord's house for worship, everything I give you orders to say to them: keep back not a word; 2 "This is what the LORD says: Stand in the courtyard of the LORD's house and speak to all the people of the towns of Judah who come to worship in the house of the LORD. Tell them everything I command you; do not omit a word.
3 It may be that they will give ear, and that every man will be turned from his evil way, so that my purpose of sending evil on them because of the evil of their doings may be changed. 3 Perhaps they will listen and each will turn from his evil way. Then I will relent and not bring on them the disaster I was planning because of the evil they have done.
4 And you are to say to them, This is what the Lord has said: If you do not give ear to me and go in the way of my law which I have put before you, 4 Say to them, 'This is what the LORD says: If you do not listen to me and follow my law, which I have set before you,
5 And give ear to the words of my servants the prophets whom I send to you, getting up early and sending them, though you gave no attention; 5 and if you do not listen to the words of my servants the prophets, whom I have sent to you again and again (though you have not listened),
6 Then I will make this house like Shiloh, and will make this town a curse to all the nations of the earth. 6 then I will make this house like Shiloh and this city an object of cursing among all the nations of the earth.' "
