22:1 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] ; Go down [H3381] to the house [H1004] of the king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] , and speak [H1696] there this word [H1697] ,
22:2 And say [H559] , Hear [H8085] the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] , O king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] , that sittest [H3427] upon the throne [H3678] of David [H1732] , thou, and thy servants [H5650] , and thy people [H5971] that enter [H935] in by these gates [H8179] :
22:3 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] ; Execute [H6213] ye judgment [H4941] and righteousness [H6666] , and deliver [H5337] the spoiled [H1497] out of the hand [H3027] of the oppressor [H6216] : and do no wrong [H3238] , do no violence [H2554] to the stranger [H1616] , the fatherless [H3490] , nor the widow [H490] , neither shed [H8210] innocent [H5355] blood [heb1818] in this place [H4725] .
22:4 For if ye do [H6213] this thing [H1697] indeed [H6213] , then shall there enter in [H935] by the gates [H8179] of this house [H1004] kings [H4428] sitting [H3427] upon the throne [H3678] of David [H1732] , riding [H7392] in chariots [H7393] and on horses [H5483] , he, and his servants [H5650] , and his people [H5971] .(upon: Heb. for David upon his throne)
22:5 But if ye will not hear [H8085] these words [H1697] , I swear [H7650] by myself, saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] , that this house [H1004] shall become a desolation [H2723] .
22:6 For thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] unto the king's [H4428] house [H1004] of Judah [H3063] ; Thou [art] Gilead [H1568] unto me, [and] the head [H7218] of Lebanon [H3844] : [yet] surely I will make [H7896] thee a wilderness [H4057] , [and] cities [H5892] [which] are not inhabited [H3427] [H3427] .
22:7 And I will prepare [H6942] destroyers [H7843] against thee, every one [H376] with his weapons [H3627] : and they shall cut down [H3772] thy choice [H4005] cedars [H730] , and cast [H5307] [them] into the fire [H784] .
22:8 And many [H7227] nations [H1471] shall pass [H5674] by this city [H5892] , and they shall say [H559] every man [H376] to his neighbour [H7453] , Wherefore hath the LORD [H3068] done [H6213] thus unto this great [H1419] city [H5892] ?
22:9 Then they shall answer [H559] , Because they have forsaken [H5800] the covenant [H1285] of the LORD [H3068] their God [H430] , and worshipped [H7812] other [H312] gods [H430] , and served [H5647] them.
22:10 Weep [H1058] ye not for the dead [H4191] , neither bemoan [H5110] him: [but] weep [H1058] sore [H1058] for him that goeth away [H1980] : for he shall return [H7725] no more, nor see [H7200] his native [H4138] country [H776] .
22:11 For thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] touching [H413] Shallum [H7967] the son [H1121] of Josiah [H2977] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] , which reigned [H4427] instead of Josiah [H2977] his father [H1] , which went forth [H3318] out of this place [H4725] ; He shall not return [H7725] thither any more:
22:12 But he shall die [H4191] in the place [H4725] whither they have led him captive [H1540] , and shall see [H7200] this land [H776] no more.
22:13 Woe [H1945] unto him that buildeth [H1129] his house [H1004] by [H3808] unrighteousness [H6664] , and his chambers [H5944] by wrong [H4941] ; [that] useth his neighbour's [H7453] service [H5647] without wages [H2600] , and giveth [H5414] him not for his work [H6467] ;
22:14 That saith [H559] , I will build [H1129] me a wide [H4060] house [H1004] and large [H7304] chambers [H5944] , and cutteth him out [H7167] windows [H2474] ; and [it is] cieled [H5603] with cedar [H730] , and painted [H4886] with vermilion [H8350] .(large: Heb. through-aired)(windows: or, my windows)
22:15 Shalt thou reign [H4427] , because thou closest [H8474] [thyself] in cedar [H730] ? did not thy father [H1] eat [H398] and drink [H8354] , and do [H6213] judgment [H4941] and justice [H6666] , [and] then [it was] well [H2896] with him?
22:16 He judged [H1777] the cause [H1779] of the poor [H6041] and needy [H34] ; then [it was] well [H2896] [with him: was] not this to know [H1847] me? saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] .
22:17 But thine eyes [H5869] and thine heart [H3820] [are] not but for thy covetousness [H1215] , and for to shed [H8210] innocent [H5355] blood [heb1818] , and for oppression [H6233] , and for violence [H4835] , to do [H6213] [it].(violence: or, incursion)
22:18 Therefore thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] concerning Jehoiakim [H3079] the son [H1121] of Josiah [H2977] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] ; They shall not lament [H5594] for him, [saying], Ah [H1945] my brother [H251] ! or, Ah [H1945] sister [H269] ! they shall not lament [H5594] for him, [saying], Ah [H1945] lord [H113] ! or, Ah [H1945] his glory [H1935] !
22:19 He shall be buried [H6912] with the burial [H6900] of an ass [H2543] , drawn [H5498] and cast forth [H7993] beyond [H1973] the gates [H8179] of Jerusalem [H3389] .
22:20 Go up [H5927] to Lebanon [H3844] , and cry [H6817] ; and lift up [H5414] thy voice [H6963] in Bashan [H1316] , and cry [H6817] from the passages [H5676] : for all thy lovers [H157] are destroyed [H7665] .
22:21 I spake [H1696] unto thee in thy prosperity [H7962] ; [but] thou saidst [H559] , I will not hear [H8085] . This [hath been] thy manner [H1870] from thy youth [H5271] , that thou obeyedst [H8085] not my voice [H6963] .(prosperity: Heb. prosperities)
22:22 The wind [H7307] shall eat up [H7462] all thy pastors [H7462] , and thy lovers [H157] shall go [H3212] into captivity [H7628] : surely then shalt thou be ashamed [H954] and confounded [H3637] for all thy wickedness [H7451] .
22:23 O inhabitant [H3427] of Lebanon [H3844] , that makest thy nest [H7077] in the cedars [H730] , how gracious [H2603] shalt thou be when pangs [H2256] come [H935] upon thee, the pain [H2427] as of a woman in travail [H3205] !(inhabitant: Heb. inhabitress)
22:24 [As] I live [H2416] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] , though Coniah [H3659] the son [H1121] of Jehoiakim [H3079] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] were the signet [H2368] upon my right [H3225] hand [H3027] , yet would I pluck [H5423] thee thence;
22:25 And I will give [H5414] thee into the hand [H3027] of them that seek [H1245] thy life [H5315] , and into the hand [H3027] [of them] whose face [H6440] thou fearest [H3016] , even into the hand [H3027] of Nebuchadrezzar [H5019] king [H4428] of Babylon [H894] , and into the hand [H3027] of the Chaldeans [H3778] .
22:26 And I will cast thee out [H2904] , and thy mother [H517] that bare [H3205] thee, into another [H312] country [H776] , where ye were not born [H3205] ; and there shall ye die [H4191] .
22:27 But to the land [H776] whereunto they desire [H5375] [H5315] to return [H7725] , thither shall they not return [H7725] .(desire: Heb. lift up their mind)
22:28 [Is] this man [H376] Coniah [H3659] a despised [H959] broken [H5310] idol [H6089] ? [is he] a vessel [H3627] wherein [is] no pleasure [H2656] ? wherefore are they cast out [H7993] , he and his seed [H2233] , and are cast [H2904] into a land [H776] which they know [H3045] not?
22:29 O earth [H776] , earth [H776] , earth [H776] , hear [H8085] the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] .
22:30 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , Write [H3789] ye this man [H376] childless [H6185] , a man [H1397] [that] shall not prosper [H6743] in his days [H3117] : for no man [H376] of his seed [H2233] shall prosper [H6743] , sitting [H3427] upon the throne [H3678] of David [H1732] , and ruling [H4910] any more in Judah [H3063] .
