24:1 The LORD [H3068] shewed [H7200] me, and, behold, two [H8147] baskets [H1736] of figs [H8384] [were] set [H3259] before [H6440] the temple [H1964] of the LORD [H3068] , after [H310] that Nebuchadrezzar [H5019] king [H4428] of Babylon [H894] had carried away captive [H1540] Jeconiah [H3204] the son [H1121] of Jehoiakim [H3079] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] , and the princes [H8269] of Judah [H3063] , with the carpenters [H2796] and smiths [H4525] , from Jerusalem [H3389] , and had brought [H935] them to Babylon [H894] .
24:2 One [H259] basket [H1731] [had] very [H3966] good [H2896] figs [H8384] , [even] like the figs [H8384] [that are] first ripe [H1073] : and the other [H259] basket [H1731] [had] very [H3966] naughty [H7451] figs [H8384] , which could not be eaten [H398] , they were so bad [H7455] .(they: Heb. for badness)
24:3 Then said [H559] the LORD [H3068] unto me, What seest [H7200] thou, Jeremiah [H3414] ? And I said [H559] , Figs [H8384] ; the good [H2896] figs [H8384] , very [H3966] good [H2896] ; and the evil [H7451] , very [H3966] evil [H7451] , that cannot be eaten [H398] , they are so evil [H7455] .
24:4 Again the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] came unto me, saying [H559] ,
24:5 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , the God [H430] of Israel [H3478] ; Like these good [H2896] figs [H8384] , so will I acknowledge [H5234] them that are carried away captive [H1546] of Judah [H3063] , whom I have sent [H7971] out of this place [H4725] into the land [H776] of the Chaldeans [H3778] for [their] good [H2896] .(them: Heb. the captivity)
24:6 For I will set [H7760] mine eyes [H5869] upon them for good [H2896] , and I will bring them again [H7725] to this land [H776] : and I will build [H1129] them, and not pull [them] down [H2040] ; and I will plant [H5193] them, and not pluck [them] up [H5428] .
24:7 And I will give [H5414] them an heart [H3820] to know [H3045] me, that I [am] the LORD [H3068] : and they shall be my people [H5971] , and I will be their God [H430] : for they shall return [H7725] unto me with their whole heart [H3820] .
24:8 And as the evil [H7451] figs [H8384] , which cannot be eaten [H398] , they are so evil [H7455] ; surely thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , So will I give [H5414] Zedekiah [H6667] the king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] , and his princes [H8269] , and the residue [H7611] of Jerusalem [H3389] , that remain [H7604] in this land [H776] , and them that dwell [H3427] in the land [H776] of Egypt [H4714] :
24:9 And I will deliver [H5414] them to be removed [H2189] [H2113] into all the kingdoms [H4467] of the earth [H776] for [their] hurt [H7451] , [to be] a reproach [H2781] and a proverb [H4912] , a taunt [H8148] and a curse [H7045] , in all places [H4725] whither I shall drive [H5080] them.(to be removed: Heb. for removing, or, vexation)
24:10 And I will send [H7971] the sword [H2719] , the famine [H7458] , and the pestilence [H1698] , among them, till they be consumed [H8552] from off the land [H127] that I gave [H5414] unto them and to their fathers [H1] .
