Jeremiah 13
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1Thus LORD JEHOVAH said to me: “Go buy yourself a loin cloth of linen, and bind it on your waist and you shall not wash it in water 2And I bought a loin cloth, according to the word of LORD JEHOVAH, and I bound it on my waist 3And the word of LORD JEHOVAH was upon me a second time, and he said 4“Take the loin cloth that you bought that is on your waist, and arise, go to Euphrates, and bury it there in a crack of the rock” 5And I went and I buried it at Euphrates, as LORD JEHOVAH commanded me 6And after many days, LORD JEHOVAH said to me: “Arise, go to Euphrates and take from there the loin cloth which I ordered you to bury there” 7And I went to Euphrates and I dug and I took the loin cloth from where I buried it, and behold, the loin cloth was ruined and was good for nothing

8And the word of LORD JEHOVAH came to me, and he said 9“Thus says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts, the God of Israel: ‘In this way I shall destroy the glorious ones of Judah and the many glorious ones of Jerusalem 10This evil people who have not chosen to hear my words, who walk in the will of their heart and went after other gods, to serve them and to worship them, they shall be as this loin cloth that is good for nothing 11Because as a loin cloth cleaves to the waist of a man, in this way I made the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Yehuda cleave to me, says LORD JEHOVAH, that they would be a people to me, and for a name, and for honor, and for glory, and they did not listen”

12And he spoke to them this word: “Thus says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts, God of Israel: ‘Every wine skin will be filled with wine.’ Behold, they say to you: ‘Do we not know that all wine skins are filled with wine?’ 13Say to them, ’Thus says LORD JEHOVAH: Behold, I fill all the inhabitants of this land, and the Kings who sit on the throne of David, and the Priests and the Prophets, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, with drunkenness 14And I shall scatter them, each man, from the presence of his brother, and the fathers and children together, says LORD JEHOVAH. I shall show no compassion and I shall show no pity, and I shall not spare to destroy them

15Hear and obey, and do not be lifted up, because LORD JEHOVAH has spoken”

16Give LORD JEHOVAH your God honor, before it is dark and before your feet will be broken on the mountains in darkness, and you look for the light and he makes it darkness and shadows of death

17And if you will not listen to him, secretly my soul will weep before the distress, and weeping I shall weep and tears will run down my eyes, because the flock of LORD JEHOVAH was captured

18Say to the King and to the Princes: “Be humble and return to God, because the crown of your glory has fallen from your head”

19The cities of the south are shut up and there is none who opens. Yehuda is carried away captive, all the captivity entirely

20Lift up your eyes and see them who come from the North. Which is the flock that is given to you, the flock of your glory?

21What will you say when he will visit with you, and you have taught them doctrine so that they will be for treading under foot? Behold, labor pains shall seize you like a woman that is in labor to give birth!

22And if you say in your heart, ‘Why have these things happened to me?’, in the multitude of your sins your skirts are rolled up and your heels are uncovered

23And as an Indian cannot change his skin or a leopard his spots, also you cannot do good, because you have learned evil

24And I shall scatter them as a straw that passes before the wind in the wilderness

25This is your portion and the lot of your inheritance from before me, says LORD JEHOVAH, because you have forgotten me and you trusted in falsehood

26Also I shall roll up your skirts and I shall pull them over your faces and your shame will be seen

27And your adulteries and your whinnies and the fornication of your prostitution on the hills in the wilderness I have seen your abominations! Woe to you Jerusalem, for you shall not be purged! When will you return to God?”
