and thou gavest to them this land, which thou sworest to the fathers of them (which thou sworest to their fathers), that thou wouldest give to them, a land flowing with milk and honey.
And they entered, and had it in possession; and they obeyed not to thy voice, and they went not in thy law (but they did not obey thy commands, and they did not walk in thy Law); all things which thou commandedest to them to do, they did not (do); and all these evils befell to them.
Lo! strongholds be builded against the city, that it be taken, and the city is given into the hands of Chaldees, and into the hands of the king of Babylon, that fight against it, of the face of [the] sword, and of hunger, and of pestilence (because of the sword, and hunger, and pestilence); and whatever things thou spakest, befell, as thou thyself seest.
And thou saidest to me, Lord God, Buy thou a field for silver, and give thou witnesses, when the city is given in(to) the hands of Chaldees. (And, Lord God, thou saidest to me, Buy thou a field for silver, and have thou witnesses, even though the city is given into the hands of the Chaldeans.)
And the word of the Lord was made to Jeremy, and said,
Lo! I am the Lord God of all flesh. Whether any word shall be hard to me? (Shall anything be too hard for me?)
Therefore the Lord saith these things, Lo! I shall betake this city into the hands of Chaldees, and into the hand of (Nebuchadnezzar,) the king of Babylon, and he shall take it. (And so the Lord saith these things, Lo! I shall deliver this city into the hands of the Chaldeans, and into the hands of Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon, and he shall take it/and he shall capture it.)
And Chaldees shall come, and fight against this city, and they shall burn it with fire, and they shall burn it, and [the] houses, in whose roofs they sacrificed to Baal, and offered moist sacrifices to alien gods, to stir me to wrath. (And the Chaldeans shall come, and fight against this city, and they shall burn it down, yea, they shall burn it down, and all the houses, on whose rooftops they sacrificed to Baal, and offered wine offerings to strange, or to foreign, gods, to stir me to anger.)
For why the sons of Israel, and the sons of Judah, did evil continually, from their young waxing age, before mine eyes; the sons of Israel, which till to now (hath) wrathed me by the work of their hands, saith the Lord. (For the Israelites, and the people of Judah, continually did evil, from their youth, before me; the Israelites, who until now have angered me with the work of their hands, saith the Lord.)
For why this city is made to me in my strong vengeance and indignation (For this city hath stirred my strong vengeance and my indignation), from the day in which they built it, unto this day, in which it shall be taken away from my sight;
(yea, taken away) for the malice of the sons of Israel, and of the sons of Judah, which they did, stirring me to wrathfulness, they, and the kings of them, the princes of them, and the priests, and prophets of them, the men of Judah, and the dwellers of Jerusalem. (yea, taken away for the malice of the Israelites, and of the people of Judah, which they did, stirring me to anger, they, and their kings, their princes, or their leaders, and their priests, and their prophets, yea, the people of Judah, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem.)
