2 which Jeremiah the prophet spoke to all the apeople of Judah and to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying,
3 “From the athirteenth year of bJosiah the son of Amon, king of Judah, even to this day, 1these ctwenty-three years the word of the Lord has come to me, and I have spoken to you 2dagain and again, but you have not listened.
7 “Yet you have not listened to Me,” declares the Lord, “in order that you might aprovoke Me to anger with the work of your hands to your own harm.
9 behold, I will asend and take all the families of the north,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will send to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, bMy servant, and will bring them against this land and against its inhabitants and against all these nations round about; and I will 1utterly destroy them and cmake them a horror and a hissing, and an everlasting desolation.
12 ‘Then it will be awhen seventy years are completed I will bpunish the king of Babylon and that nation,’ declares the Lord, ‘for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans; and cI will make it an everlasting desolation.
15 For thus the Lord, the God of Israel, says to me, “Take this acup of the wine of wrath from My hand and cause all the nations to whom I send you to drink it.
16 “They will adrink and stagger and go mad because of the sword that I will send among them.”
17 Then I took the cup from the Lord’s hand and amade all the nations to whom the Lord sent me drink it:
18 aJerusalem and the cities of Judah and its kings and its princes, to make them a ruin, a horror, a hissing and a curse, as it is this day;
19 aPharaoh king of Egypt, his servants, his princes and all his people;
29 “For behold, I am abeginning to work calamity in this city which is bcalled by My name, and shall you be completely free from punishment? You will not be free from punishment; for cI am summoning a sword against all the inhabitants of the earth,” declares the Lord of hosts.’
And utter His voice from His holy habitation;
He will roar mightily against His 1fold.
He will shout like those who tread the grapes,
Against all the inhabitants of the earth.
Because the Lord has aa controversy with the nations.
He is entering into bjudgment with all flesh;
As for the wicked, He has given them to the sword,’ declares the Lord.”
“Behold, evil is going forth
From anation to nation,
And a great bstorm is being stirred up
From the remotest parts of the earth.
And awallow in ashes, you masters of the flock;
And you will fall like a choice vessel.
35 “aFlight will perish from the shepherds,
And escape from the masters of the flock.
And the wailing of the masters of the flock!
For the Lord is destroying their pasture,
Because of the bfierce anger of the Lord.
38 “He has left His hiding place alike the lion;
For their land has become a horror
Because of the fierceness of the 1oppressing sword
And because of His fierce anger.”
