KJV JER6 with Strong's Hebrew/GreekJER5.htm JER7.htm
6:1 O ye children [H1121] of Benjamin [H1144] , gather yourselves to flee [H5756] out of the midst [H7130] of Jerusalem [H3389] , and blow [H8628] the trumpet [H7782] in Tekoa [H8620] , and set up [H5375] a sign [H4864] of fire in Bethhaccerem [H1021] : for evil [H7451] appeareth [H8259] out of the north [H6828] , and great [H1419] destruction [H7667] .
6:2 I have likened [H1820] the daughter [H1323] of Zion [H6726] to a comely [H5116] and delicate [H6026] [woman].(comely: or, dwelling at home)
6:3 The shepherds [H7462] with their flocks [H5739] shall come [H935] unto her; they shall pitch [H8628] [their] tents [H168] against her round about [H5439] ; they shall feed [H7462] every one [H376] in his place [H3027] .
6:4 Prepare [H6942] ye war [H4421] against her; arise [H6965] , and let us go up [H5927] at noon [H6672] . Woe [H188] unto us! for the day [H3117] goeth away [H6437] , for the shadows [H6752] of the evening [H6153] are stretched out [H5186] .
6:5 Arise [H6965] , and let us go [H5927] by night [H3915] , and let us destroy [H7843] her palaces [H759] .
6:6 For thus hath the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] said [H559] , Hew ye down [H3772] trees [H6097] , and cast [H8210] a mount [H5550] against Jerusalem [H3389] : this [is] the city [H5892] to be visited [H6485] ; she [is] wholly oppression [H6233] in the midst [H7130] of her.(cast: or, pour out the engine of shot)
6:7 As a fountain [H953] casteth out [H6979] her waters [H4325] , so she casteth out [H6979] her wickedness [H7451] : violence [H2555] and spoil [H7701] is heard [H8085] in her; before me [H6440] continually [H8548] [is] grief [H2483] and wounds [H4347] .
6:8 Be thou instructed [H3256] , O Jerusalem [H3389] , lest my soul [H5315] depart [H3363] from thee; lest I make [H7760] thee desolate [H8077] , a land [H776] not inhabited [H3427] .(depart: Heb. be loosed, or, disjointed)
6:9 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] , They shall throughly [H5953] glean [H5953] the remnant [H7611] of Israel [H3478] as a vine [H1612] : turn back [H7725] thine hand [H3027] as a grapegatherer [H1219] into the baskets [H5552] .
6:10 To whom shall I speak [H1696] , and give warning [H5749] , that they may hear [H8085] ? behold, their ear [H241] [is] uncircumcised [H6189] , and they cannot [H3201] hearken [H7181] : behold, the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] is unto them a reproach [H2781] ; they have no delight [H2654] in it.
6:11 Therefore I am full [H4392] of the fury [H2534] of the LORD [H3068] ; I am weary [H3811] with holding in [H3557] : I will pour it out [H8210] upon the children [H5768] abroad [H2351] , and upon the assembly [H5475] of young men [H970] together [H3162] : for even the husband [H376] with the wife [H802] shall be taken [H3920] , the aged [H2205] with [him that is] full [H4390] of days [H3117] .
6:12 And their houses [H1004] shall be turned [H5437] unto others [H312] , [with their] fields [H7704] and wives [H802] together [H3162] : for I will stretch out [H5186] my hand [H3027] upon the inhabitants [H3427] of the land [H776] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] .
6:13 For from the least [H6996] of them even unto the greatest [H1419] of them every one [is] given [H1214] to covetousness [H1215] ; and from the prophet [H5030] even unto the priest [H3548] every one dealeth [H6213] falsely [H8267] .
6:14 They have healed [H7495] also the hurt [H7667] [of the daughter [heb1323] ] of my people [H5971] slightly [H7043] , saying [H559] , Peace [H7965] , peace [H7965] ; when [there is] no peace [H7965] .(hurt: Heb. bruise, or, breach)
6:15 Were they ashamed [H3001] when they had committed [H6213] abomination [H8441] ? nay [H1571] , they were not at all [H954] ashamed [H954] , neither [H1571] could [H3045] they blush [H3637] : therefore they shall fall [H5307] among them that fall [H5307] : at the time [H6256] [that] I visit [H6485] them they shall be cast down [H3782] , saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] .
6:16 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , Stand [H5975] ye in the ways [H1870] , and see [H7200] , and ask [H7592] for the old [H5769] paths [H5410] , where [is] the good [H2896] way [H1870] , and walk [H3212] therein, and ye shall find [H4672] rest [H4771] for your souls [H5315] . But they said [H559] , We will not walk [H3212] [therein].
6:17 Also I set [H6965] watchmen [H6822] over you, [saying], Hearken [H7181] to the sound [H6963] of the trumpet [H7782] . But they said [H559] , We will not hearken [H7181] .
6:18 Therefore hear [H8085] , ye nations [H1471] , and know [H3045] , O congregation [H5712] , what [is] among them.
6:19 Hear [H8085] , O earth [H776] : behold, I will bring [H935] evil [H7451] upon this people [H5971] , [even] the fruit [H6529] of their thoughts [H4284] , because they have not hearkened [H7181] unto my words [H1697] , nor to my law [H8451] , but rejected [H3988] it.
6:20 To what purpose cometh [H935] there to me incense [H3828] from Sheba [H7614] , and the sweet [H2896] cane [H7070] from a far [H4801] country [H776] ? your burnt offerings [H5930] [are] not acceptable [H7522] , nor your sacrifices [H2077] sweet [H6149] unto me.
6:21 Therefore thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , Behold, I will lay [H5414] stumblingblocks [H4383] before this people [H5971] , and the fathers [H1] and the sons [H1121] together [H3162] shall fall [H3782] upon them; the neighbour [H7934] and his friend [H7453] shall perish [H6] .
6:22 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , Behold, a people [H5971] cometh [H935] from the north [H6828] country [H776] , and a great [H1419] nation [H1471] shall be raised [H5782] from the sides [H3411] of the earth [H776] .
6:23 They shall lay hold [H2388] on bow [H7198] and spear [H3591] ; they [are] cruel [H394] , and have no mercy [H7355] ; their voice [H6963] roareth [H1993] like the sea [H3220] ; and they ride [H7392] upon horses [H5483] , set in array [H6186] as men [H376] for war [H4421] against thee, O daughter [H1323] of Zion [H6726] .
6:24 We have heard [H8085] the fame [H8089] thereof: our hands [H3027] wax feeble [H7503] : anguish [H6869] hath taken hold [H2388] of us, [and] pain [H2427] , as of a woman in travail [H3205] .
6:25 Go not forth [H3318] into the field [H7704] , nor walk [H3212] by the way [H1870] ; for the sword [H2719] of the enemy [H341] [and] fear [H4032] [is] on every side [H5439] .
6:26 O daughter [H1323] of my people [H5971] , gird [H2296] [thee] with sackcloth [H8242] , and wallow [H6428] thyself in ashes [H665] : make [H6213] thee mourning [H60] , [as for] an only son [H3173] , most bitter [H8563] lamentation [H4553] : for the spoiler [H7703] shall suddenly [H6597] come [H935] upon us.
6:27 I have set [H5414] thee [for] a tower [H969] [and] a fortress [H4013] among my people [H5971] , that thou mayest know [H3045] and try [H974] their way [H1870] .
6:28 They [are] all grievous [H5493] revolters [H5637] , walking [H1980] with slanders [H7400] : [they are] brass [H5178] and iron [H1270] ; they [are] all corrupters [H7843] .
6:29 The bellows [H4647] are burned [H2787] , the lead [H5777] is consumed [H8552] of the fire [H800] [H784] ; the founder [H6884] melteth [H6884] in vain [H7723] : for the wicked [H7451] are not plucked away [H5423] .
6:30 Reprobate [H3988] silver [H3701] shall [men] call [H7121] them, because the LORD [H3068] hath rejected [H3988] them.(Reprobate: or, Refuse silver)
