1 I was still being held as a prisoner. I was kept in the courtyard of the guard. Then another message came to me from the Lord. He said, 1 While Jeremiah was still confined in the courtyard of the guard, the word of the LORD came to him a second time:
2 "I made the earth. I formed it. And I set it in place. The LORD is my name. 2 "This is what the LORD says, he who made the earth, the LORD who formed it and established it--the LORD is his name:
3 Call out to me. I will answer you. I will tell you great things you do not know. You will not be able to understand them." 3 'Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.'
4 The LORD is the God of Israel. He speaks about the houses in Jerusalem. He talks about the royal palaces of Judah. The people had torn many of them down. They had used their stones to strengthen the city walls against attack. 4 For this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says about the houses in this city and the royal palaces of Judah that have been torn down to be used against the siege ramps and the sword
5 That was during their fight with the armies of Babylonia. The LORD says, "The houses will be filled with dead bodies. They will be the bodies of the men I will kill when my anger burns against them. I will hide my face from this city. That is because its people have committed so many sins. 5 in the fight with the Babylonians: 'They will be filled with the dead bodies of the men I will slay in my anger and wrath. I will hide my face from this city because of all its wickedness.
6 "But now I will bring health and healing to Jerusalem. I will heal my people. I will let them enjoy great peace and security. 6 " 'Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security.
