29:1 Now these [are] the words [H1697] of the letter [H5612] that Jeremiah [H3414] the prophet [H5030] sent [H7971] from Jerusalem [H3389] unto the residue [H3499] of the elders [H2205] which were carried away captives [H1473] , and to the priests [H3548] , and to the prophets [H5030] , and to all the people [H5971] whom Nebuchadnezzar [H5019] had carried away captive [H1540] from Jerusalem [H3389] to Babylon [H894] ;

29:2 (After [H310] that Jeconiah [H3204] the king [H4428] , and the queen [H1377] , and the eunuchs [H5631] , the princes [H8269] of Judah [H3063] and Jerusalem [H3389] , and the carpenters [H2796] , and the smiths [H4525] , were departed [H3318] from Jerusalem [H3389] ;)(eunuchs: or, chamberlains)

29:3 By the hand [H3027] of Elasah [H501] the son [H1121] of Shaphan [H8227] , and Gemariah [H1587] the son [H1121] of Hilkiah [H2518] , (whom Zedekiah [H6667] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] sent [H7971] unto Babylon [H894] to Nebuchadnezzar [H5019] king [H4428] of Babylon [H894] ) saying [H559] ,

29:4 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] , the God [H430] of Israel [H3478] , unto all that are carried away captives [H1473] , whom I have caused to be carried away [H1540] from Jerusalem [H3389] unto Babylon [H894] ;

29:5 Build [H1129] ye houses [H1004] , and dwell [H3427] [in them]; and plant [H5193] gardens [H1593] , and eat [H398] the fruit [H6529] of them;

29:6 Take [H3947] ye wives [H802] , and beget [H3205] sons [H1121] and daughters [H1323] ; and take [H3947] wives [H802] for your sons [H1121] , and give [H5414] your daughters [H1323] to husbands [H582] , that they may bear [H3205] sons [H1121] and daughters [H1121] ; that ye may be increased [H7235] there, and not diminished [H4591] .

29:7 And seek [H1875] the peace [H7965] of the city [H5892] whither I have caused you to be carried away captives [H1540] , and pray [H6419] unto the LORD [H3068] for it: for in the peace [H7965] thereof shall ye have peace [H7965] .

29:8 For thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] , the God [H430] of Israel [H3478] ; Let not your prophets [H5030] and your diviners [H7080] , that [be] in the midst [H7130] of you, deceive [H5377] you, neither hearken [H8085] to your dreams [H2472] which ye cause to be dreamed [H2492] .

29:9 For they prophesy [H5012] falsely [H8267] unto you in my name [H8034] : I have not sent [H7971] them, saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] .(falsely: Heb. in a lie)

29:10 For thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , That after [H6310] seventy [H7657] years [H8141] be accomplished [H4390] at Babylon [H894] I will visit [H6485] you, and perform [H6965] my good [H2896] word [H1697] toward you, in causing you to return [H7725] to this place [H4725] .

29:11 For I know [H3045] the thoughts [H4284] that I think [H2803] toward you, saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] , thoughts [H4284] of peace [H7965] , and not of evil [H7451] , to give [H5414] you an expected [H8615] end [H319] .(expected: Heb. end and expectation)

29:12 Then shall ye call [H7121] upon me, and ye shall go [H1980] and pray [H6419] unto me, and I will hearken [H8085] unto you.

29:13 And ye shall seek [H1245] me, and find [H4672] [me], when ye shall search [H1875] for me with all your heart [H3824] .

29:14 And I will be found [H4672] of you, saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] : and I will turn away [H7725] your captivity [H7622] [H7622] , and I will gather [H6908] you from all the nations [H1471] , and from all the places [H4725] whither I have driven [H5080] you, saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] ; and I will bring you again [H7725] into the place [H4725] whence I caused you to be carried away captive [H1540] .

29:15 Because ye have said [H559] , The LORD [H3068] hath raised us up [H6965] prophets [H5030] in Babylon [H894] ;

29:16 [Know] that thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] of the king [H4428] that sitteth [H3427] upon the throne [H3678] of David [H1732] , and of all the people [H5971] that dwelleth [H3427] in this city [H5892] , [and] of your brethren [H251] that are not gone forth [H3318] with you into captivity [H1473] ;

29:17 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] ; Behold, I will send [H7971] upon them the sword [H2719] , the famine [H7458] , and the pestilence [H1698] , and will make [H5414] them like vile [H8182] figs [H8384] , that cannot be eaten [H398] , they are so evil [H7455] .

29:18 And I will persecute [H7291] them [H310] with the sword [H2719] , with the famine [H7458] , and with the pestilence [H1698] , and will deliver [H5414] them to be removed [H2189] [H2113] to all the kingdoms [H4467] of the earth [H776] , to be a curse [H423] , and an astonishment [H8047] , and an hissing [H8322] , and a reproach [H2781] , among all the nations [H1471] whither I have driven [H5080] them:(to be a curse: Heb. for a curse)

29:19 Because they have not hearkened [H8085] to my words [H1697] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] , which I sent [H7971] unto them by my servants [H5650] the prophets [H5030] , rising up early [H7925] and sending [H7971] [them]; but ye would not hear [H8085] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] .

29:20 Hear [H8085] ye therefore the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] , all ye of the captivity [H1473] , whom I have sent [H7971] from Jerusalem [H3389] to Babylon [H894] :

29:21 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] , the God [H430] of Israel [H3478] , of Ahab [H256] the son [H1121] of Kolaiah [H6964] , and of Zedekiah [H6667] the son [H1121] of Maaseiah [H4641] , which prophesy [H5012] a lie [H8267] unto you in my name [H8034] ; Behold, I will deliver [H5414] them into the hand [H3027] of Nebuchadrezzar [H5019] king [H4428] of Babylon [H894] ; and he shall slay [H5221] them before your eyes [H5869] ;

29:22 And of them shall be taken up [H3947] a curse [H7045] by all the captivity [H1546] of Judah [H3063] which [are] in Babylon [H894] , saying [H559] , The LORD [H3068] make [H7760] thee like Zedekiah [H6667] and like Ahab [H256] , whom the king [H4428] of Babylon [H894] roasted [H7033] in the fire [H784] ;

29:23 Because they have committed [H6213] villany [H5039] in Israel [H3478] , and have committed [H6213] adultery [H5003] with their neighbours' [H7453] wives [H802] , and have spoken [H1696] lying [H8267] words [H1697] in my name [H8034] , which I have not commanded [H6680] them; even I know [H3045] , and [am] a witness [H5707] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] .

29:24 [Thus] shalt thou also speak [H559] to Shemaiah [H8098] the Nehelamite [H5161] , saying [H559] ,(Nehelamite: or, dreamer)

29:25 Thus speaketh [H559] the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] , the God [H430] of Israel [H3478] , saying [H559] , Because thou hast sent [H7971] letters [H5612] in thy name [H8034] unto all the people [H5971] that [are] at Jerusalem [H3389] , and to Zephaniah [H6846] the son [H1121] of Maaseiah [H4641] the priest [H3548] , and to all the priests [H3548] , saying [H559] ,

29:26 The LORD [H3068] hath made [H5414] thee priest [H3548] in the stead of Jehoiada [H3077] the priest [H3548] , that ye should be officers [H6496] in the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] , for every man [H376] [that is] mad [H7696] , and maketh himself a prophet [H5012] , that thou shouldest put [H5414] him in prison [H4115] , and in the stocks [H6729] .

29:27 Now therefore why hast thou not reproved [H1605] Jeremiah [H3414] of Anathoth [H6069] , which maketh himself a prophet [H5012] to you?

29:28 For therefore he sent [H7971] unto us [in] Babylon [H894] , saying [H559] , This [H1931] [captivity is] long [H752] : build [H1129] ye houses [H1004] , and dwell [H3427] [in them]; and plant [H5193] gardens [H1593] , and eat [H398] the fruit [H6529] of them.

29:29 And Zephaniah [H6846] the priest [H3548] read [H7121] this letter [H5612] in the ears [H241] of Jeremiah [H3414] the prophet [H5030] .

29:30 Then came the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] unto Jeremiah [H3414] , saying [H559] ,

29:31 Send [H7971] to all them of the captivity [H1473] , saying [H559] , Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] concerning Shemaiah [H8098] the Nehelamite [H5161] ; Because that Shemaiah [H8098] hath prophesied [H5012] unto you, and I sent [H7971] him not, and he caused you to trust [H982] in a lie [H8267] :

29:32 Therefore thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] ; Behold, I will punish [H6485] Shemaiah [H8098] the Nehelamite [H5161] , and his seed [H2233] : he shall not have a man [H376] to dwell [H3427] among [H8432] this people [H5971] ; neither shall he behold [H7200] the good [H2896] that I will do [H6213] for my people [H5971] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] ; because he hath taught [H1696] rebellion [H5627] against the LORD [H3068] .(rebellion: Heb. revolt)
