Jeremiah 14
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And the word of LORD JEHOVAH was upon Jeremiah about the lack of rain

2“Yehuda is destroyed and its gates are desolate, and they fell on the ground and the outcry of Jerusalem went up

3Their Princes sent their wanting ones for water. They came to the pit and they did not find water. They returned their vessels empty; they were ashamed and they were stricken and they covered their heads

4Because of the deeds of the land there was no rain. The farmers were disgraced and they covered their heads

5Also the hinds in the wilderness gave birth and they left their children, because there was no new grass

6And wild donkeys stood up on the trails. They snuffed up the wind like jackals. Their eyes grew dark because there is no grass

7If our sins have testified against us, LORD JEHOVAH, have pity because of your name, because your kindness is great and we have sinned against you

8Hope of Israel and his Savior, in time of trouble do not be as a visitor in the land, or like a traveler who turned aside to lodge

9Do not be as a man who is poor, and like a man who is unable to save, and you LORD JEHOVAH, you are within us, and your name is called upon us. Do not leave us!”

10Thus says LORD JEHOVAH to this people: ‘Those whose feet have loved to stagger have not restrained themselves, and LORD JEHOVAH has not taken pleasure in them, therefore their evil will be remembered, and he shall visit their sins’ 11And LORD JEHOVAH said to me: ‘You shall not pray for this people for good 12Because if they fast, I do not hear their prayer, and if they offer up burning offerings and a gift offering, I do not take pleasure in them, because with a sword and with starvation and with plague I am finishing them”

13And I said: ‘I beg you, LORD JEHOVAH God, behold, the Prophets are saying to them, ‘You will not see the sword or famine, it shall not happen to you, but peace and truth I shall give to you in this place’” 14And LORD JEHOVAH said to me: “The Prophets prophesy with lies in my name, whom I have not sent and I have not commanded, and I have not spoken to them. Lying visions and divinations and omens and the deceit of their heart they prophesy to you” 15Because of this, thus says LORD JEHOVAH about the Prophets who prophesy in my name, whom I have not sent, and they say: "The sword and famine shall not be in this land”, by the sword and by starvation those Prophets shall come to an end 16And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out into the streets of Jerusalem before the sword and famine and plagues, and they have none to bury those, and their wives and their children and their daughters, and I shall pour upon them their evil”

17And speak to them this statement: “Tears shall run down my eyes by day and by night, and they shall not stop, because in that great ruin, the virgin daughter of my people was broken by a blow and severe pain!”

18If I proceed to the country, behold, the slain of the sword, and if I entered to the city, behold the stricken of the famine! Because also the Prophets and the Priests walked around in the land, and they have not known!

19Despising, you have despised Yehuda, or has your soul loathed Zion? Why you have stricken us and there is no remedy for us? We wait for peace and there is no good, and for times of healing, and behold, fear!

20LORD JEHOVAH, we know our sins and the sins of our fathers, because we have sinned against you!

21Do not be angry, for your name’s sake, and do not despise the throne of your glory! Remember and do not nullify your covenant with us!

22For the worshiped things of the Gentiles cannot bring rain down on us, neither will the sky give gentle showers, but you are LORD JEHOVAH our God, and we shall wait for you, for you have made all these things
