15:1 Then said [H559] the LORD [H3068] unto me, Though Moses [H4872] and Samuel [H8050] stood [H5975] before [H6440] me, [yet] my mind [H5315] [could] not [be] toward this people [H5971] : cast [them] out [H7971] of my sight [H6440] , and let them go forth [H3318] .
15:2 And it shall come to pass, if they say [H559] unto thee, Whither shall we go forth [H3318] ? then thou shalt tell [H559] them, Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] ; Such as [are] for death [H4194] , to death [H4194] ; and such as [are] for the sword [H2719] , to the sword [H2719] ; and such as [are] for the famine [H7458] , to the famine [H7458] ; and such as [are] for the captivity [H7628] , to the captivity [H7628] .
15:3 And I will appoint [H6485] over them four [H702] kinds [H4940] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] : the sword [H2719] to slay [H2026] , and the dogs [H3611] to tear [H5498] , and the fowls [H5775] of the heaven [H8064] , and the beasts [H929] of the earth [H776] , to devour [H398] and destroy [H7843] .(kinds: Heb. families)
15:4 And I will cause [H5414] them to be removed [H2189] [H2113] into all kingdoms [H4467] of the earth [H776] , because [H1558] of Manasseh [H4519] the son [H1121] of Hezekiah [H3169] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] , for [that] which he did [H6213] in Jerusalem [H3389] .(cause: Heb. give them for a removing)
15:5 For who shall have pity [H2550] upon thee, O Jerusalem [H3389] ? or who shall bemoan [H5110] thee? or who shall go aside [H5493] to ask [H7592] how thou doest [H7965] ?(how: Heb. of thy peace?)
15:6 Thou hast forsaken [H5203] me, saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] , thou art gone [H3212] backward [H268] : therefore will I stretch out [H5186] my hand [H3027] against thee, and destroy [H7843] thee; I am weary [H3811] with repenting [H5162] .
15:7 And I will fan [H2219] them with a fan [H4214] in the gates [H8179] of the land [H776] ; I will bereave [H7921] [them] of children, I will destroy [H6] my people [H5971] , [since] they return [H7725] not from their ways [H1870] .(children: or, whatsoever is dear)
15:8 Their widows [H490] are increased [H6105] to me above the sand [H2344] of the seas [H3220] : I have brought [H935] upon them against the mother [H517] of the young men [H970] a spoiler [H7703] at noonday [H6672] : I have caused [him] to fall [H5307] upon it suddenly [H6597] , and terrors [H928] upon the city [H5892] .(the mother: or, the mother city a young man spoiling, etc, or, the mother and the young men)
15:9 She that hath borne [H3205] seven [H7651] languisheth [H535] : she hath given up [H5301] the ghost [H5315] ; her sun [H8121] is gone [H935] down while [it was] yet day [H3119] [H3117] : she hath been ashamed [H954] and confounded [H2659] : and the residue [H7611] of them will I deliver [H5414] to the sword [H2719] before [H6440] their enemies [H341] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] .
15:10 Woe [H188] is me, my mother [H517] , that thou hast borne [H3205] me a man [H376] of strife [H7379] and a man [H376] of contention [H4066] to the whole earth [H776] ! I have neither lent on usury [H5383] , nor men have lent to me on usury [H5383] ; [yet] every one of them doth curse [H7043] me.
15:11 The LORD [H3068] said [H559] , Verily [H3808] [H518] it shall be well [H2896] with thy remnant [H8281] [H8293] ; verily [H518] I will cause the enemy [H341] to entreat [H6293] thee [well] in the time [H6256] of evil [H7451] and in the time [H6256] of affliction [H6869] .(cause: or, intreat the enemy for thee)
15:12 Shall iron [H1270] break [H7489] the northern [H6828] iron [H1270] and the steel [H5178] ?
15:13 Thy substance [H2428] and thy treasures [H214] will I give [H5414] to the spoil [H957] without price [H4242] , and [that] for all thy sins [H2403] , even in all thy borders [H1366] .
15:14 And I will make [thee] to pass [H5674] with thine enemies [H341] into a land [H776] [which] thou knowest [H3045] not: for a fire [H784] is kindled [H6919] in mine anger [H639] , [which] shall burn [H3344] upon you.
15:15 O LORD [H3068] , thou knowest [H3045] : remember [H2142] me, and visit [H6485] me, and revenge [H5358] me of my persecutors [H7291] ; take me not away [H3947] in thy longsuffering [H639] [H750] : know [H3045] that for thy sake I have suffered [H5375] rebuke [H2781] .
15:16 Thy words [H1697] were found [H4672] , and I did eat [H398] them; and thy word [H1697] was unto me the joy [H8342] and rejoicing [H8057] of mine heart [H3824] : for I am called [H7121] by thy name [H8034] , O LORD [H3068] God [H430] of hosts [H6635] .(I am: Heb. thy name is called upon me)
15:17 I sat [H3427] not in the assembly [H5475] of the mockers [H7832] , nor rejoiced [H5937] ; I sat [H3427] alone [H910] because [H6440] of thy hand [H3027] : for thou hast filled [H4390] me with indignation [H2195] .
15:18 Why is my pain [H3511] perpetual [H5331] , and my wound [H4347] incurable [H605] , [which] refuseth [H3985] to be healed [H7495] ? wilt thou be altogether unto me as a liar [H391] , [and as] waters [H4325] [that] fail [H539] ?(fail: Heb. be not sure?)
15:19 Therefore thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , If thou return [H7725] , then will I bring thee again [H7725] , [and] thou shalt stand [H5975] before [H6440] me: and if thou take forth [H3318] the precious [H3368] from the vile [H2151] , thou shalt be as my mouth [H6310] : let them return [H7725] unto thee; but return [H7725] not thou unto them.
15:20 And I will make [H5414] thee unto this people [H5971] a fenced [H1219] brasen [H5178] wall [H2346] : and they shall fight [H3898] against thee, but they shall not prevail [H3201] against thee: for I [am] with thee to save [H3467] thee and to deliver [H5337] thee, saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] .
15:21 And I will deliver [H5337] thee out of the hand [H3027] of the wicked [H7451] , and I will redeem [H6299] thee out of the hand [H3709] of the terrible [H6184] .
