Jeremiah 15
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And LORD JEHOVAH said to me: “If Moshe and Samuel would stand before me, my soul is not pleased with this people. I would send them out from before my face and they would leave!

2And if they will say to you, ‘Where will we go?’, say to them: ‘So says LORD JEHOVAH, those who are for death, to death, and those who are for the sword, to the sword, and those who are for famine, to famine, and those who are for captivity, to captivity!’

3And I shall order four plagues upon them, says LORD JEHOVAH: the sword to kill, and dogs to tear, and the bird of the sky and the beast of the Earth to devour and to destroy 4And I shall give them for a horror among all the kingdoms of Earth, because of the sins of Menashe, son of Hezekiah, King of Judea, for everything that he did in Jerusalem

5Who will show pity upon you, Jerusalem, and to whom will you sorrow for yourself, and who will turn aside to ask about your peace?

6You have forsaken me, says LORD JEHOVAH, and you went backward, and I shall lift my hand against you and I shall destroy you, and I shall not forgive them again

7And I shall scatter them with a winnowing fan in the cities of the Earth. I bereaved and I destroyed my people, and they did not return from their ways

8Their widows abounded more than the sand of the sea. I brought upon them, on mother and upon young men, the plunderer at noonday. I cast trouble and trembling upon them suddenly

9She who gives birth to seven, howls. Her belly has opened, her sun has set at midday. She was ashamed and she blushed. The rest of them I shall finish with the sword before their enemies, says LORD JEHOVAH

10Woe to me, my mother, for you gave me birth as a man of strife, and a rebuking man in all the land! I am not in debt and they are not indebted to me, and all are abusive to me!”

11LORD JEHOVAH said: “I shall not leave you in goodness, but I shall make an enemy meet with you from the North in time of trouble, in time of evil

12Who is as hard as iron and like brass

13Your goods and your treasures and all your borders I shall give for plunder because of your sins

14And I shall subject you to your enemies in a land that you do not know. Because a fire has kindled in my anger, it shall burn upon you

15You know, LORD JEHOVAH. Remember me and save me and avenge me of my persecutors. Do not lead me into the prolongation of your Spirit. Know that I have received reproach for your sake

16And I have kept your commandments and I have done them, and your word was to me for the delight and for the joy of my heart, because your name is called upon me, LORD JEHOVAH God, The Mighty One

17I have not sat in the assembly of mockers, but I was afraid before your hand, and I have sat alone, because rage has filled me

18Why has my sorrow been strong and my wound serious and is unwilling to be healed, and you have been to me as false waters that are untrustworthy?

19Because of this, thus says LORD JEHOVAH: “If you will turn, I will turn you, and before me you shall stand, and if you will bring forth the precious from the contemptible, you will be as my mouth, and those shall be converted to you, and you will not be converted to them

20I have given you this people as a strong wall of brass, and they will fight with you, and they shall not overcome you, because I am with you to save you, and for your deliverance, says LORD JEHOVAH

21And I shall save you from the hand of the evil, and I shall save you from the hand of the mighty
