4 “For thus says the Lord, ‘Behold, I am going to make you a aterror to yourself and to all your friends; and while byour eyes look on, they will fall by the sword of their enemies. So I will cgive over all Judah to the hand of the king of Babylon, and he will carry them away as dexiles to Babylon and will slay them with the sword.
5 ‘I will also give over all the awealth of this city, all its produce and all its costly things; even all the treasures of the kings of Judah I will give over to the bhand of their enemies, and they will plunder them, take them away and bring them to Babylon.
6 ‘And you, aPashhur, and all who live in your house will go into captivity; and you will enter Babylon, and there you will die and there you will be buried, you and all your bfriends to whom you have cfalsely prophesied.’ ”
7 O Lord, You have deceived me and I was deceived;
You have aovercome me and prevailed.
I have become a blaughingstock all day long;
Everyone cmocks me.
I aproclaim violence and destruction,
In reproach and derision all day long.
9 But if I say, “I will not aremember Him
Or speak anymore in His name,”
Then in bmy heart it becomes like a burning fire
Shut up in my bones;
And I am weary of holding it in,
And cI cannot endure it.
10 For aI have heard the whispering of many,
“bTerror on every side!
cDenounce him; yes, let us denounce him!”
Watching for my fall, say:
And take our revenge on him.”
11 But the aLord is with me like a dread champion;
Therefore my bpersecutors will stumble and not prevail.
They will be utterly ashamed, because they have 1failed,
With an ceverlasting disgrace that will not be forgotten.
12 Yet, O Lord of hosts, You who atest the righteous,
Who see the 1mind and the heart;
Let me bsee Your vengeance on them;
For cto You I have set forth my cause.
13 aSing to the Lord, praise the Lord!
For He has bdelivered the soul of the needy one
From the hand of evildoers.
14 Cursed be the aday when I was born;
Let the day not be blessed when my mother bore me!
To my father, saying,
And made him very happy.
And let him hear an boutcry in the morning
And a 2shout of alarm at noon;
So that my mother would have been my grave,
And her womb ever pregnant.

About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update
The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
