The word that hath been unto Jeremiah from Jehovah, saying,
`Thus spake Jehovah, God of Israel, saying, Write for thee all the words that I have spoken unto thee on a book.
For, lo, days are coming -- an affirmation of Jehovah -- and I have turned back [to] the captivity of My people Israel and Judah, said Jehovah, and I have caused them to turn back unto the land that I gave to their fathers, and they do possess it.'
And these [are] the words that Jehovah hath spoken concerning Israel and concerning Judah:
Surely thus said Jehovah: A voice of trembling we have heard, Fear -- and there is no peace.
Ask, I pray you, and see, is a male bringing forth? Wherefore have I seen every man, His hands on his loins, as a travailing woman, And all faces have been turned to paleness?
Wo! for great [is] that day, without any like it, Yea, a time of adversity it [is] to Jacob, Yet out of it he is saved.
And it hath come to pass, in that day, An affirmation of Jehovah of Hosts, I break his yoke from off thy neck, And thy bands I draw away, And lay no more service on him do strangers.
And they have served Jehovah their God, And David their king whom I raise up to them.
