21:1 The word [H1697] which came unto Jeremiah [H3414] from the LORD [H3068] , when king [H4428] Zedekiah [H6667] sent [H7971] unto him Pashur [H6583] the son [H1121] of Melchiah [H4441] , and Zephaniah [heb6846] the son [H1121] of Maaseiah [H4641] the priest [H3548] , saying [H559] ,

21:2 Enquire [H1875] , I pray thee, of the LORD [H3068] for us [H1157] ; for Nebuchadrezzar [H5019] king [H4428] of Babylon [H894] maketh war [H3898] against us; if so be that the LORD [H3068] will deal [H6213] with us according to all his wondrous works [H6381] , that he may go up [H5927] from us.

21:3 Then said [H559] Jeremiah [H3414] unto them, Thus shall ye say [H559] to Zedekiah [H6667] :

21:4 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of Israel [H3478] ; Behold, I will turn back [H5437] the weapons [H3627] of war [H4421] that [are] in your hands [H3027] , wherewith ye fight [H3898] against the king [H4428] of Babylon [H894] , and [against] the Chaldeans [H3778] , which besiege [H6696] you without [H2351] the walls [H2346] , and I will assemble [H622] them into the midst [H8432] of this city [H5892] .

21:5 And I myself will fight [H3898] against you with an outstretched [H5186] hand [H3027] and with a strong [H2389] arm [H2220] , even in anger [H639] , and in fury [H2534] , and in great [H1419] wrath [H7110] .

21:6 And I will smite [H5221] the inhabitants [H3427] of this city [H5892] , both man [H120] and beast [H929] : they shall die [H4191] of a great [H1419] pestilence [H1698] .

21:7 And afterward [H310] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] , I will deliver [H5414] Zedekiah [H6667] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] , and his servants [H5650] , and the people [H5971] , and such as are left [H7604] in this city [H5892] from the pestilence [H1698] , from the sword [H2719] , and from the famine [H7458] , into the hand [H3027] of Nebuchadrezzar [H5019] king [H4428] of Babylon [H894] , and into the hand [H3027] of their enemies [H341] , and into the hand [H3027] of those that seek [H1245] their life [H5315] : and he shall smite [H5221] them with the edge [H6310] of the sword [H2719] ; he shall not spare [H2347] them, neither have pity [H2550] , nor have mercy [H7355] .

21:8 And unto this people [H5971] thou shalt say [H559] , Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] ; Behold, I set [H5414] before [H6440] you the way [H1870] of life [H2416] , and the way [H1870] of death [H4194] .

21:9 He that abideth [H3427] in this city [H5892] shall die [H4191] by the sword [H2719] , and by the famine [H7458] , and by the pestilence [H1698] : but he that goeth out [H3318] , and falleth [H5307] to the Chaldeans [H3778] that besiege [H6696] you, he shall live [H2421] [H2421] , and his life [H5315] shall be unto him for a prey [H7998] .

21:10 For I have set [H7760] my face [H6440] against this city [H5892] for evil [H7451] , and not for good [H2896] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] : it shall be given [H5414] into the hand [H3027] of the king [H4428] of Babylon [H894] , and he shall burn [H8313] it with fire [H784] .

21:11 And touching the house [H1004] of the king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] , [say], Hear [H8085] ye the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] ;

21:12 O house [H1004] of David [H1732] , thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] ; Execute [H1777] judgment [H4941] in the morning [H1242] , and deliver [H5337] [him that is] spoiled [H1497] out of the hand [H3027] of the oppressor [H6231] , lest my fury [H2534] go out [H3318] like fire [H784] , and burn [H1197] that none can quench [H3518] [it], because [H6440] of the evil [H7455] of your doings [H4611] .(Execute: Heb. Judge)

21:13 Behold, I [am] against thee, O inhabitant [H3427] of the valley [H6010] , [and] rock [H6697] of the plain [H4334] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] ; which say [H559] , Who shall come down [H5181] against us? or who shall enter [H935] into our habitations [H4585] ?(inhabitant: Heb. inhabitress)

21:14 But I will punish [H6485] you according to the fruit [H6529] of your doings [H4611] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] : and I will kindle [H3341] a fire [H784] in the forest [H3293] thereof, and it shall devour [H398] all things round about [H5439] it.(punish: Heb. visit upon)
