Jeremiah 12
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1You are righteous, LORD JEHOVAH, that I may judge with you, however, I am speaking justice before you. Why does the way of the wicked prosper, and why are all liars rich?

2You planted them and their roots grew strong, they grew also; they produced fruit. You are near in their mouths, and you are far from their kidneys

3And you, LORD JEHOVAH, you have known me, and you have seen me and you tested my heart before you. Prepare them as sheep for slaughter and summon them to the day of killing

4How long shall the land mourn, and every green plant of the field dry up from the evil of its inhabitants? Beast and bird have ended, for they said: “We will not see an end”

5Behold, you had run with the footmen, and they wore you out, and how will you contend with horses? And you trust in the land of peace, and how will you cross in the force of Jordan?

6Because your brethren and the house of your father were false with you, they also spoke words about you. You shall not believe them when they will speak good about you

7I have forsaken my house! I have forsaken my inheritance! I have given the beloved of my soul into the hand of her enemies!

8My inheritance was like a lion in a forest to me. She lifted up her voice against me; because of this, I have hated her

9My inheritance was a speckled bird of prey to me, and the birds of prey circled around her. Every animal of the wilderness went and gathered around her and came to eat her

10Many Shepherds have destroyed my vineyard. They have trodden upon my portion. They made the portion of my pleasure as a desolate wilderness

11They wasted and destroyed it. It mourned unto me. All the land has become extremely desolate, because there is no man who brings it to his heart

12The plunderers came on all the paths of the wilderness, because the sword of LORD JEHOVAH devours from the ends of the Earth and unto the ends of the Earth, and there is no peace to anybody

13Sow wheat and reap thorns, and labor and gain nothing, and be ashamed of your produce, because of the heat of the wrath of LORD JEHOVAH

14Thus says LORD JEHOVAH against all neighbor Shepherds who touch the inheritance that I left by inheritance to my people Israel: ‘behold, I uproot them from their place, and those of the house of Yehuda I shall uproot from among them 15And after I will uproot them, I shall return and I shall show compassion upon them, and I shall lead them, each man to his inheritance and each man to his land 16And if they shall teach my ways to my people, that they will swear in my name: “Living is LORD JEHOVAH!”, as they had instructed my people to swear by Baal, they shall be situated among my people 17And if they will not listen, I shall uproot this people to uproot and to destroy, says LORD JEHOVAH
