Jeremiah 35
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1The word that came upon Jeremiah from before LORD JEHOVAH in the days of Yoiqim, son of Yoshiah, King of Judea, saying: 2“Go to the house of the children of the Rekabites, and speak with them, and bring them to the house of LORD JEHOVAH, into one of the arched chambers, and give them wine to drink” 3And I brought Yazanyah, son of Amariah, son of Khabayatsanyah, and his brothers, and all his sons and all the house of the Rekabites 4And I brought them to the house of LORD JEHOVAH and to the house of the sons of Khanan, son of Gedaliah, the Prophet of God, whose house is near the Princes who dwell above the house of Massiah, son of Shallum, Keeper of the gate 5And I set before the sons of the house of the Rekabites, water casks that were full of wine and cups, and I said to them: “Drink wine!” 6And they said, “We do not drink wine, because Yonadab, son of Rekab, our father, commanded us and said to us: ‘You shall not drink wine, you and your sons, until eternity! 7And you shall not build houses for yourselves, and you shall not sow seed and you shall not plant vineyards, and you shall have nothing, but you will sit in a tent all the days, because you shall live many days on the face of the land in which you dwell’ 8And we listen to the commandment of Yonadab, son of Rekab, our father, everything that he commanded us, that we shall not drink wine all of our days, not we, neither our wives, neither our sons, neither our daughters 9And we shall not build houses to dwell in, and we shall not have vineyards or fields or seed 10And we dwell in tents and we hear and we do everything that Yonadab, son of Rekab, our father commands us 11And when Nebukadnetsar, King of Babel, went up against the land, we said: ‘We shall enter Jerusalem in the presence of the army of the Chaldeans and in the presence of the army of Edum’, and we dwelt in Jerusalem"

12And the answer of LORD JEHOVAH was on Jeremiah, saying 13Thus says LORD JEHOVAH of hosts, God of Israel: “Go say to the men of Judea and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem: ‘Do you not accept instruction to hear my words, says LORD JEHOVAH? 14They have affirmed the word of Yonadab, son of Rekab, that he commanded his children, that they should not drink wine, and they have not drunk until today, because they have listened to the commandment of their father, and I have spoken to you, I came early and I spoke and you did not listen 15And I sent to you all my Servants the Prophets. I arose early and I sent and I said, ‘Return each man from his evil way and make your works good, and you shall not go after other gods to work for them, and dwell in the land that I have given you and your fathers’, and you have not turned your ears and you have not listened to me 16Behold, the sons of Yonadab son of Rekab have affirmed the commandment of their father which he commanded them, and this people has not listened to me 17Because of this, thus says LORD JEHOVAH, God of Israel: behold, I bring on Yehuda and upon all of the inhabitants of Jerusalem all the evil that I spoke against them, because I spoke to them and they did not listen, and I called to them, and they did not answer me”

18And to the house of the Rekabites, Jeremiah said: “Thus says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts, God of Israel: ‘Because you listened to the commandment of Yonadab your father and you kept all his commandments and you did everything that he commanded you 19Because of this, thus says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts, God of Israel: a man of Yonadab, son of Rekab, shall not fail standing before me all of the days
