Jeremiah 7
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1The word that was on Jeremiah from the presence of LORD JEHOVAH, saying 2“Stand in the door of the house of LORD JEHOVAH, and read there this word and say: "Hear the answer of LORD JEHOVAH, all of the house of Yehuda, who enter in these doors to worship LORD JEHOVAH 3Thus says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts, God of Israel: “Amend your paths and your works, and I shall make you dwell in this place 4And you shall not entrust yourselves upon the lying words of those who say to you, ‘The temple of LORD JEHOVAH! The temple of LORD JEHOVAH!’ 5You are the temple of LORD JEHOVAH if you will beautify your paths and your deeds, and if you will do justice between a man and his neighbor. 6And the settler and the orphan and the widow you shall not cheat and you shall not oppress, and innocent blood you shall not shed in this place, and after other gods you shall not go that we would do harm to you. 7And I shall make you dwell in this place in the land that I have given to your fathers from old times and unto eternity

8And behold, you trust on a lying word that does not profit 9You are stealing and murdering and you commit adultery and swear in my name with falsehood, and you lay incense for Baal, and you go after other gods that you do not know 10And you come and stand before me in this house upon which my name is called, and you were saying, "Deliver us”, and you do these all evils 11Has this house upon which my name is called become a den of thieves in your eyes? Also, behold, I have seen it, says LORD JEHOVAH

12Because of this, go to my place that is in Shiloh where I made my name dwell there at the first, and see what I have done to it, because of the evil of my people Israel 13And now, because you had done all these works, says LORD JEHOVAH, and I went before and I spoke to you, and you did not listen, and I called to you, and you did not answer 14I shall do to this house, upon which my name is called, upon which you trust, and to the city that I have given to you and to your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh 15And I shall cast you out from before my face as you have cast out all your brethren, all the seed of Aphreim

16And you shall not pray for this people, and you shall not inquire for them and you shall not beg of me, because I will not listen to you 17Do you not see a thing that they do in the villages of Judea and in the streets of Jerusalem? 18The children gather wood and the fathers burn fire and the wives knead dough to make cake of fine flour for the service of Heaven, and to pour out a drink offering to other gods that they would anger me 19It is not I they were angering, says LORD JEHOVAH, but their souls, that their faces would be ashamed 20Because of this, thus says LORD JEHOVAH God: “Behold my anger and my passion rest on this place, on the children of man and upon beast and upon trees of the wilderness, and upon fruit of the Earth, and it will burn and will not be extinguished!”

21Thus says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts, God of Israel: “Add their burnt offerings to their sacrifices and eat meat which I did not speak to their fathers 22And I did not command them in the day when I brought them out from the land of Egypt, neither about burnt offerings nor about sacrifices 23But this word I commanded them and I said: ‘Hear my voice and I shall be God to you and you will be to me a people, and walk in all the ways that I command you, that it will be good for you’ 24And they did not hear, and they did not incline their ears to hear, but they went after their counsels and after the desires of their evil heart, and they turned back and not forward 25From the day that their fathers had gone from the land of Egypt and until today, and I sent to them all my Servants the Prophets; every day I arose early and I sent them 26And they did not hear, and they did not incline their ears to me, and they hardened their necks more than their fathers

27And you will speak all these words to them, and they shall not hear you, and you call to them and they do not answer you 28The faith is destroyed and is cut off from their mouth

29Cut your hair and throw it away, and take up lamentation on the street, for LORD JEHOVAH is angry and he has forsaken the passing generation

30Because the children of Yehuda have done evil before me, says LORD JEHOVAH. They placed their abominations in the house upon which my name is called, and they have defiled it 31And they built up high places in Taphat, that is in the valley that is in BarHennom , to burn their sons and their daughters in fire that I have not commanded them and I did not bring up on my heart

32Because of this, behold, days are coming, says LORD JEHOVAH, and it will not be called “Taphat” again and “The Valley that is in BarHennom”, but only “The Valley of the Slain”, and they shall bury in Taphat for lack of space 33And the corpses of this people shall be food for the birds of Heaven and for the beasts of The Earth, and there is not a Savior 34And I shall rid from the cities of Judea and from the streets of Jerusalem the sound of dancing and the sound of joy, the voice of the groom and the voice of the bride, because all the land will be for desolation
