THE BOOK OF JEREMIAH

INTRODUCTION, 1: 1-3

THE words of Jeremiah, the1 son of Hilkiah, one of the priests that were at Anathoth in the land of Benjamin, to whom the2 word of the LORD came in the days of Josiah, the son of Amon, king of Judah, in the thirteenth year of his reign, and3 continued to come in the days of Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah, king of Judah, till the end of the eleventh year of Zedekiah, the son of Josiah, king of Judah, when Jerusalem was carried into exile in the fifth month.


THE CALL OF THE PROPHET,
1:4-19

The word of the LORD came to me,4 saying, "Before I formed you in the womb I5 knew you, And before you were born I set you apart, I appointed you a prophet to the nations."

Then said I,6"Ah, Lord GOD! I cannot speak; For I am only a youth."

But the LORD said to me,7 "Do not say, 'I am only a youth'; For to all to whom I send you shall you go, And all that I command you shall you speak.

Do not be afraid of them;8 For I am with you to deliver you," Is the oracle of the LORD.

Then the LORD stretched forth his9 hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said to me, "See! I put my words in your mouth; This day I give you authority over the10 nations and kingdoms, To root up and to pull down, to wreck and to ruin, To build and to plant."

The word of the LORD came to me,11 saying, "What do you see, Jeremiah?" I said, "I see a twig of an almond tree." Then the LORD said to me, 12

"You have seen aright; for I am watching over my word to put it into effect."

A second time the word of the LORD 13 came to me, saying, "What do you see?" I said, "I see a pot blown upon, and its blower is in the north."

Then the LORD said to me, 14

"Out of the north shall trouble be blown upon all the inhabitants of the land. For behold, I am summoning all 15 the kingdoms of the north," is the oracle of the LORD; "and they shall come and set up each his throne at the entrances of the gates of Jerusalem, and against all her walls round about, and against all the cities of Judah. And I 16 will pronounce my judgments against them for all the wickedness they have done in forsaking me, and offering sacrifices to other gods, and worshiping the works of their own hands. You, 17 then, gird up your loins, and arise, and speak to them all that I command you. Do not be dismayed before them, lest I dismay you before them. For behold, 18 I make you this day a fortified city, an iron pillar, and a bronze wall, against the whole land -- the kings of Judah, its princes and priests, and its common people. They shall fight against you, 19 but they shall not overcome you; for I am with you to deliver you," is the oracle of the LORD.


ISRAEL'S APOSTASY, 2:1 -- 4:4

The word of the LORD came to me, 2 saying, "Go and proclaim in the hearing of 2 Jerusalem, 'Thus says the LORD: "I recall your youthful devotion, your bridal love, How you followed me through the desert, through a land unsown.
