Jeremiah 17
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1The sin of Judea is written with a pen of iron and with a sharp tip of diamond and etched on the tablets of their hearts and upon the horns of their altars

2Whenever they recall in their heart their altars and their worshipped things under every tree that is thick and upon every hill that is high

3And in the mountains and in the wilderness, your goods and all your treasures and your borders I shall give for spoils because of your sins

4And I shall remove you from your inheritance that I have given you and I shall subject you to your enemies in a land that you do not know, because you have lit a fire in my anger; it will burn for eternity

5Thus says LORD JEHOVAH: “Cursed is the man who trusts a son of man and will make a son of flesh his arm, and from LORD JEHOVAH his heart will turn away

6He shall be as a root in the plain, and he shall not see when good will come, and shall dwell in a cavern in the wilderness in the earth, a salt pit that is uninhabited

7Blessed is the man who trusts on LORD JEHOVAH, and LORD JEHOVAH will be his trust

8He shall be as a tree that is planted on the waters, and by a stream it sends its roots, and he shall not fear when the heat will come and its leaves shall be flourishing, and in a year that is lacking rain he shall not fear, and he shall not be deprived of producing fruit

9The heart of every man is hard. Who knows it?

10I, LORD JEHOVAH, examine the heart and prove the kidneys, and give to a man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his deeds

11As a partridge that calls to those that it did not hatch, thus he who gains wealth by injustice shall leave it in the middle of his days, and his end will be shameful

12The throne of glory that is exalted from the first, from the place of our sanctuary

13The hope of Israel is LORD JEHOVAH. Everyone who has left you shall be ashamed and rebels shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken LORD JEHOVAH, the fountain of living waters

14Heal me, LORD JEHOVAH, and I shall be healed! Save me, and I shall be saved, for you are my glory!

15Behold, those say to me, where is the word of LORD JEHOVAH? Let it come now!

16And I have not given up on you in evil. You know that I have not coveted a day of a son of man, and anything that proceeded from my lips was before your face

17Do not be for crushing me, but abide with me in the evil day

18My persecutors shall be ashamed and I shall not be ashamed. They shall be broken and I shall not be broken. Bring upon them the day of evil, and break them with double ruin

19Thus LORD JEHOVAH said to me: “Go, stand in the gate of the children of the people who enter it the Kings of Judea and those exiting it, and in all the gates of Jerusalem 20And say to them: “Hear the word of LORD JEHOVAH, Kings of Judea, and all the house of Judea, and all of the inhabitants of Jerusalem who enter in these gates! 21Thus says LORD JEHOVAH: “Beware among yourselves, and you shall not carry a burden on the day of the Sabbath and enter into the gates of Jerusalem! 22And you shall not bring out a burden from your houses on the day of the Sabbath, and you shall do no work! And you shall hallow the day of the Sabbath as I commanded your fathers 23And they did not hear, and they did not incline their ears to hear, and they stiffened their neck that they would not listen, and they would not receive instruction

24And if listening, you will listen to me, says LORD JEHOVAH, that you will not bring a burden in the gates of this city in the day of the Sabbath, and you shall hallow the day of the Sabbath, and you will not do any work in it 25Kings and Princes who sit on the throne of David shall enter into the gates of this city when they ride in chariots and on horses, those and their great ones, and the men of Judea, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and this city shall dwell for eternity 26And they shall come from the cities of Judea, and from around Jerusalem and from the land of Benyamin, and from the valleys and from the mountains and from the south, bringing sacrifices and offerings and frankincense, and bringing thanksgiving to the house of LORD JEHOVAH 27And if you will not listen to me to hallow the day of the Sabbath, that you will not pick up a burden and enter the gates of Jerusalem in the day of the Sabbath, I shall set fire to her gates, and it will devour the palaces of Jerusalem, and it shall not be put out!
