11:1 The word [H1697] that came to Jeremiah [H3414] from the LORD [H3068] , saying [H559] ,

11:2 Hear [H8085] ye the words [H1697] of this covenant [H1285] , and speak [H1696] unto the men [H376] of Judah [H3063] , and to the inhabitants [H3427] of Jerusalem [H3389] ;

11:3 And say [H559] thou unto them, Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of Israel [H3478] ; Cursed [H779] [be] the man [H376] that obeyeth [H8085] not the words [H1697] of this covenant [H1285] ,

11:4 Which I commanded [H6680] your fathers [H1] in the day [H3117] [that] I brought them forth [H3318] out of the land [H776] of Egypt [H4714] , from the iron [H1270] furnace [H3564] , saying [H559] , Obey [H8085] my voice [H6963] , and do [H6213] them, according to all which I command [H6680] you: so shall ye be my people [H5971] , and I will be your God [H430] :

11:5 That I may perform [H6965] the oath [H7621] which I have sworn [H7650] unto your fathers [H1] , to give [H5414] them a land [H776] flowing [H2100] with milk [H2461] and honey [H1706] , as [it is] this day [H3117] . Then answered [H6030] I, and said [H559] , So be it [H543] , O LORD [H3068] .(So: Heb. Amen)

11:6 Then the LORD [H3068] said [H559] unto me, Proclaim [H7121] all these words [H1697] in the cities [H5892] of Judah [H3063] , and in the streets [H2351] of Jerusalem [H3389] , saying [H559] , Hear [H8085] ye the words [H1697] of this covenant [H1285] , and do [H6213] them.

11:7 For I earnestly [H5749] protested [H5749] unto your fathers [H1] in the day [H3117] [that] I brought them up [H5927] out of the land [H776] of Egypt [H4714] , [even] unto this day [H3117] , rising early [H7925] and protesting [H5749] , saying [H559] , Obey [H8085] my voice [H6963] .

11:8 Yet they obeyed [H8085] not, nor inclined [H5186] their ear [H241] , but walked [H3212] every one [H376] in the imagination [H8307] of their evil [H7451] heart [H3820] : therefore I will bring [H935] upon them all the words [H1697] of this covenant [H1285] , which I commanded [H6680] [them] to do [H6213] ; but they did [H6213] [them] not.(imagination: or, stubbornness)

11:9 And the LORD [H3068] said [H559] unto me, A conspiracy [H7195] is found [H4672] among the men [H376] of Judah [H3063] , and among the inhabitants [H3427] of Jerusalem [H3389] .

11:10 They are turned back [H7725] to the iniquities [H5771] of their forefathers [H7223] [H1] , which refused [H3985] to hear [H8085] my words [H1697] ; and they went [H1980] after [H310] other [H312] gods [H430] to serve [H5647] them: the house [H1004] of Israel [H3478] and the house [H1004] of Judah [H3063] have broken [H6565] my covenant [H1285] which I made [H3772] with their fathers [H1] .

11:11 Therefore thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , Behold, I will bring [H935] evil [H7451] upon them, which they shall not be able [H3201] to escape [H3318] ; and though they shall cry [H2199] unto me, I will not hearken [H8085] unto them.(to escape: Heb. to go forth of)

11:12 Then shall the cities [H5892] of Judah [H3063] and inhabitants [H3427] of Jerusalem [H3389] go [H1980] , and cry [H2199] unto the gods [H430] unto whom they offer incense [H6999] : but they shall not save [H3467] them at all [H3467] in the time [H6256] of their trouble [H7451] .(trouble: Heb. evil)

11:13 For [according to] the number [H4557] of thy cities [H5892] were thy gods [H430] , O Judah [H3063] ; and [according to] the number [H4557] of the streets [H2351] of Jerusalem [H3389] have ye set up [H7760] altars [H4196] to [that] shameful thing [H1322] , [even] altars [H4196] to burn incense [H6999] unto Baal [H1168] .(shameful: Heb. shame)

11:14 Therefore pray [H6419] not thou for this people [H5971] , neither lift up [H5375] a cry [H7440] or prayer [H8605] for them: for I will not hear [H8085] [them] in the time [H6256] that they cry [H7121] unto me for their trouble [H7451] .(trouble: Heb. evil)

11:15 What hath my beloved [H3039] to do in mine house [H1004] , [seeing] she hath wrought [H6213] lewdness [H4209] with many [H7227] , and the holy [H6944] flesh [H1320] is passed [H5674] from thee? when thou doest evil [H7451] , then thou rejoicest [H5937] .(What: Heb. What is to my beloved in my house)(when: or, when thy evil is)

11:16 The LORD [H3068] called [H7121] thy name [H8034] , A green [H7488] olive tree [H2132] , fair [H3303] , [and] of goodly [H8389] fruit [H6529] : with the noise [H6963] of a great [H1419] tumult [H1999] he hath kindled [H3341] fire [H784] upon it, and the branches [H1808] of it are broken [H7489] .

11:17 For the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] , that planted [H5193] thee, hath pronounced [H1696] evil [H7451] against thee, for [H1558] the evil [H7451] of the house [H1004] of Israel [H3478] and of the house [H1004] of Judah [H3063] , which they have done [H6213] against themselves to provoke me to anger [H3707] in offering incense [H6999] unto Baal [H1168] .

11:18 And the LORD [H3068] hath given me knowledge [H3045] [of it], and I know [H3045] [it]: then thou shewedst [H7200] me their doings [H4611] .

11:19 But I [was] like a lamb [H3532] [or] an ox [H441] [that] is brought [H2986] to the slaughter [H2873] ; and I knew [H3045] not that they had devised [H2803] devices [H4284] against me, [saying], Let us destroy [H7843] the tree [H6086] with the fruit [H3899] thereof, and let us cut him off [H3772] from the land [H776] of the living [H2416] , that his name [H8034] may be no more remembered [H2142] .(the tree: Heb. the stalk with his bread)

11:20 But, O LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] , that judgest [H8199] righteously [H6664] , that triest [H974] the reins [H3629] and the heart [H3820] , let me see [H7200] thy vengeance [H5360] on them: for unto thee have I revealed [H1540] my cause [H7379] .

11:21 Therefore thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] of the men [H582] of Anathoth [H6068] , that seek [H1245] thy life [H5315] , saying [H559] , Prophesy [H5012] not in the name [H8034] of the LORD [H3068] , that thou die [H4191] not by our hand [H3027] :

11:22 Therefore thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] , Behold, I will punish [H6485] them: the young men [H970] shall die [H4191] by the sword [H2719] ; their sons [H1121] and their daughters [H1323] shall die [H4191] by famine [H7458] :(punish: Heb. visit upon)

11:23 And there shall be no remnant [H7611] of them: for I will bring [H935] evil [H7451] upon the men [H582] of Anathoth [H6068] , [even] the year [H8141] of their visitation [H6486] .
