Jeremiah 30
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1The word that has been to Jeremiah from YHWH, saying, 2“Thus spoke YHWH, God of Israel, saying, Write for yourself all the words that I have spoken to you on a scroll. 3For behold, days are coming—a declaration of YHWH—and I have turned back [to] the captivity of My people Israel and Judah, said YHWH, and I have caused them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they possess it.”

4And these [are] the words that YHWH has spoken concerning Israel and concerning Judah:

5Surely thus said YHWH: “We have heard a voice of trembling, "" Fear—and there is no peace.

6Now ask and see, is a male bringing forth? Why have I seen every man "" [With] his hands on his loins, as a travailing woman, "" And all faces have been turned to paleness?

7Woe! For that day [is] great, without any like it, "" Indeed, it [is] the time of Jacob’s tribulation, "" Yet he is saved out of it.

8And it has come to pass in that day, "" A declaration of YHWH of Hosts, "" I break his yoke from off your neck, "" And I draw away your bands, "" And strangers lay no more service on him. 9And they have served their God YHWH, "" And David their king whom I raise up to them.

10And you, do not be afraid, My servant Jacob, "" A declaration of YHWH, "" Nor be frightened, O Israel, "" For behold, I am saving you from afar, "" And your seed from the land of their captivity, "" And Jacob has turned back and rested, "" And is quiet, and there is none troubling.

11For I [am] with you,” "" A declaration of YHWH, "" “To save you, "" For I make an end of all the nations "" To where I have scattered you, "" Only, I do not make an end of you, "" And I have disciplined you in judgment, "" And do not entirely acquit you.”

12For thus said YHWH: “Your breach is incurable, your stroke grievous,

13There is none judging your cause to bind up, "" There are no healing medicines for you.

14All loving you have forgotten you, "" They do not seek you, "" For I struck you with the stroke of an enemy, "" The discipline of a fierce one, "" Because of the abundance of your iniquity, your sins have been mighty!

15Why do you cry concerning your breach? Your pain [is] incurable, "" Because of the abundance of your iniquity, "" Your sins have been mighty! I have done these to you.

16Therefore all consuming you are consumed, "" And all your adversaries—all of them—Go into captivity, "" And your spoilers have been for a spoil, "" And I give up all your plunderers to plunder.

17For I increase health to you, "" And I heal you from your strokes,” "" A declaration of YHWH, "" “For they have called you an outcast, [saying], "" It [is] Zion, "" There is none seeking for her.”

18Thus said YHWH: “Behold, I turn back [to] the captivity of the tents of Jacob, "" And I pity his dwelling places, "" And the city has been built on its heap, "" And the palace remains according to its ordinance.

19And thanksgiving has gone forth from them, "" And the voice of playful ones, "" And I have multiplied them and they are not few, "" And made them honorable, and they are not small.

20And his sons have been as before, "" And his congregation is established before Me, "" And I have seen after all his oppressors.

21And his majestic one has been of himself, "" And his ruler goes forth from his midst, "" And I have caused him to draw near, "" And he has drawn near to Me, "" For who [is] he who has pledged his heart "" To draw near to Me?” A declaration of YHWH.

22“And you have been to Me for a people, "" And I am to you for God.”

23Behold, a whirlwind of YHWH—Fury has gone forth—a cutting whirlwind, "" It stays on the head of the wicked.

24The fierceness of the anger of YHWH "" Does not turn back until He has done [it], "" Indeed, until His establishing the purposes of His heart. In the latter end of the days you consider it!
