Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate.  Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach.  For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.

4. And the word of the Lord came to me saying,

5.“Before I formed you in the belly I knew you, and before you came out of the womb I sanctified you. I ordained you to be a prophet to the nations.”

6. Then I said, “Oh no, Lord Jehovah! Behold, I don’t know how to speak because I am a boy.”

7. But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am a boy’, for you will go to all that I send you to and you will say whatever I command you.

8.Do not be afraid of their faces because I am with you to deliver you, says the Lord.”

9. Then the Lord stretched out his hand and touched my mouth. And the Lord said to me, “Behold, I have put my words in your mouth.”

*in the book we have an exclamation after come back to me! says the Lord.

1. It is said, “If a man puts away his wife, and she goes from him and becomes another man’s, will he return to her again? Would not that land be greatly polluted?” But you have played the whore with many lovers; yet, come back to me, says Jehovah.

2. Lift up your eyes to the heights and see! Where have you not been lain with? By the roads have you waited for them like an Arab in the desert, and you have made the land polluted with your whoredoms and your evil deeds.

3. That is why plentiful showers and spring-rain have not come. Yet, you have the forehead of a whorish woman! You refuse to be ashamed.

4.

5.

6. And Jehovah said to me in the days of Josiah the King, “Have you seen what backsliding Israel has done? She goes up on every high mountain and under every green tree, and plays the harlot there.

7.And I said, after she did all these things, ‘Come back to me,’ but she did not come back, and her treacherous sister Judah saw it.

8.And I saw, when for all the times that backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away and given her a bill of divorce, that her treacherous sister Judah was not afraid, and she also went and played the harlot.

9.

10.

11.

12. Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, “Return, O backslidden Israel, says Jehovah! My face will no longer frown on you, for I am merciful, says Jehovah. I will not stay angry forever.

13.Only acknowledge your sin, that you have rebelled against Jehovah your God, and have dispersed your ways to strangers under every green tree, and have not obeyed my voice, says Jehovah.

14.Come back, O wayward children, says Jehovah, for I am married to you! And I will take you, one from a city and two from a family, and I will bring you to Zion.

15.And I will give you shepherds after my own heart, and they will feed you knowledge and understanding.

16.And it shall come to pass in those days, when you multiply and bear fruit in the land, says Jehovah, that they will no longer say, ‘The ark of the covenant of Jehovah!’ It will not come to mind, neither will they remember it, nor will they miss it, nor will it be made again.”

17. At that time, they will call Jerusalem the throne of Jehovah, and all the nations will be gathered to it, to Jerusalem, to the name of Jehovah, and they will no longer walk after the stubbornness of their evil heart.

18. In those days the house of Judah will walk with the house of Israel, and they will come together from the land of the north to the land which I gave your fathers for an inheritance.

19. And so I said, “How should I put you in with the children and give you a desirable land, even the most beautiful inheritance of nations?” And I said, “You will call me, ‘My Father’, and you will not turn away from following me.”

20. Surely, as a wife treacherously leaves her husband, so have you have dealt treacherously with me, O house of Israel, says Jehovah.

1. If you would repent, O Israel, says Jehovah, return to me! And if you will put your abominations out of my sight, and not waver,

2.then you will take the oath, “as Jehovah lives”, truthfully, justly, and uprightly, and the nations will bless themselves in Him, and in Him will they glory.

3. For thus says Jehovah to the men of Judah and Jerusalem: Break up your fallow ground, and do not sow among thorns.

4.Circumcise yourselves to Jehovah and remove the foreskin of your heart, O men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem, lest my wrath comfort like fire and there be no one quench it, because of the evil of your doings.”

23. I looked at the land, and behold, it was formless and empty, and at the heavens, and they had no light.

24. I looked at the mountains, and behold, they were trembling, and all the hills shook.

25. I looked, and behold, there was no man, and every flying creature of the heavens had fled.

26. I looked, and behold, the fruitful land was a wilderness, and all its cities were broken down at the presence of the Lord, before His burning anger.

27. For thus says Jehovah: the whole land will be a waste; yet, I will not make a complete end.

28. For this, the land will mourn and the heavens above will become black, for I have spoken. I have purposed it, and I will not be moved to pity, nor will I turn back from it.

29. The entire city will flee from the noise of the horseman and the bowman, and they will go into the thickets, and they will climb upon the rocks. Every city will be forsaken, and there will not be one inhabitant in them.

30. When you are utterly destroyed, what will you do? For you clothe yourself in scarlet; you deck yourself with ornaments of gold; you accentuate your eyes with stibium. You are beautifying yourself in vain. Your paramours despise you; they seek your soul.

31. For I heard a voice like a woman travailing, anguish as one bearing her first child. It is the voice of the daughter of Zion, gasping for breath, spreading out her hands, crying, ‘Woe is me now! For my soul has fainted because of murderers.’”

13. Therefore, Jehovah says, “It is because they forsook my law which I set before them, and did not heed my voice, and would not walk in it.

14.But they followed the stubbornness of their own heart, and Baalim, which their fathers taught them.

15.Therefore, thus says the Lord of Hosts, God of Israel: Behold, I will make this people eat wormwood and make them drink poisonous water,

16.and I will scatter them among the nations that neither they nor their fathers have known, and I will send the sword after them until I have consumed them.”

1. And Pashur, son of Immer the priest, who was also chief ruler over the Lord’s house, heard Jeremiah prophesy these things.

2. And Pashur struck Jeremiah the prophet, and he put him in the stocks that were in the upper gate of Benjamin which was by the house of the Lord.

3. And it came to pass the next day that Pashur released Jeremiah from the stocks. And Jeremiah said to him, “Jehovah has not named you Pashur, but rather, Magor-missabib.[3]

4. For thus said Jehovah: ‘Behold, I make you a terror[4] to yourself and to all your loved ones! And they shall fall by the sword of their enemies even as your eyes watch. And I will give all of Judah into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall lead them captive to Babylon, and strike them down with the sword.

5.And I shall deliver up all the wealth of this city, and all its products, and all its precious things, even all the treasures of the kings of Judah shall I hand over to their enemies, and they shall plunder them, and take them captive, and bring them to Babylon.

6.And you, Pashur, and all those who live in your house, shall go into captivity. And you shall go to Babylon, and there you shall die, and there you shall be buried — you and all your loved ones to whom you have prophesied with lies.”

7. O Jehovah, you deceived me, and I was deceived! You are stronger than I, and you prevailed! I am in derision daily; everyone mocks me!

8. Whenever I speak, I cry out “Violence!”, and I cry “Destruction!” But the word of the Lord became for me a reproach and ridicule every day!

9. So I said, “I will not mention Him or speak again in His name!” But it was like a fire burning in my heart, shut up in my bones. I wore myself out holding it in; I couldn’t do it.

10. For I heard the whispering of many, “There is terror on every side.[5] You tell it, and we’ll tell it.” All my acquaintances were watching for my stumbling, saying, “Perhaps he will be enticed,” and “Let’s prevail over him,” and “Let’s take our vengeance against him.”

11. But Jehovah is with me like a terrifying mighty man. Therefore, my pursuers shall stumble, and not prevail! They shall be greatly ashamed because they did not succeed — an eternal reproach that shall not be forgotten.

12. And the Lord of Hosts tries the righteous, seeing the kidneys and the heart. Let me see your vengeance against them, for I have pled my cause before you.

13. Sing to Jehovah! Give praise to Jehovah! For He has delivered the soul of the poor out of the hand of the wicked.

14. Cursed be the day in which I was born, the day in which my mother bore me! Let it not be blessed!

15. Cursed be the man who brought my father tidings, saying, “A male child is born to you!”, making him rejoice greatly.

16. Let that man be like the cities that Jehovah overturned, and had no pity. Let him hear a cry in the morning, and an alarm at midday,

17.who did not kill me from the womb — or that my mother would have been my grave, and her womb forever pregnant.

18. Why did I come out of the womb to see trouble and sorrow, and my days be consumed with disgrace?

5. “Behold, the days are coming”, says Jehovah, “when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and he will reign as King, and he will deal wisely and will execute justice and righteousness in the earth.

6.In his days, Judah will be saved and Israel will dwell securely, and this is his name which Jehovah will call him: Our Righteousness.”

Almost identical with 16:14—15 - check in book, different wording for these; below are correct pg 112

7. Therefore, behold! The days are coming, says Jehovah, when they will no longer say, “As Jehovah lives, who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt,”

8.but, “As Jehovah lives, who brought up and who led the seed of the house of Israel out of the land of the north and out of all the countries into which I had driven them,” and they will dwell in their own land.

7. Ah! For that day will be so dreadful that none will be like it. It is the time of Jacob’s distress. However, by it, he will be saved.

8. And it shall come to pass on that day, says the Lord of Hosts, that I will break his yoke off your neck, and I will tear apart your fetters. And foreigners will no longer enslave him.

9. And they will serve Jehovah their God and David their King, whom I will raise up for them.

10. But as for you, do not be afraid, O Jacob my servant, says Jehovah, nor be dismayed, O Israel! For behold, I am going to deliver you out of distant places, and your seed from the land of their captivity. And Jacob will return and have quiet, and be at ease, and no one will make him afraid.

11. For I am with you, says Jehovah, to save you. I will surely make a complete end of all the nations where I scattered you, howbeit, I will not make a complete end of you, but will chastise you in measure, and by no means leave you unpunished.

12.

13.

14. All your lovers have forgotten you; they do not seek after you. For I wounded you with the wound of an enemy, chastisement by a cruel foe, because of the greatness of your iniquity. Your sins are many!

15. Why do you cry out over your affliction? Your bellyaching is incurable. I have done these things to you because of the greatness of your iniquity and your many sins!

16. Therefore all who devour you shall be devoured, and all of your enemies — all of them — shall go into captivity, and they who spoil you shall be a spoil, and all who prey on you, I will make a prey.

17. For I will bring you health, and I will heal you of your wounds, says Jehovah, because they have called you, “Outcast Zion, whom no one wants”.

18. Thus says Jehovah: Behold, I will undo the captivity of Jacob’s tents, and I will have mercy on his dwelling places, and the city will be rebuilt over its ruins, and the fortress will stand in its proper place.

19. And thanksgiving and the sound of celebrating will come forth from them, and I will multiply them, and they will not be few. I will cause them to be honored, and they will not be disdained.

20. And his children will be as of old, and his congregation will be established before me, and I will punish all his oppressors.

21. His Prince came from himself, and his Ruler came out of his loins, and I caused him to come near and approach me. Who, pray tell, is he, this man who gave himself up to approach me? says Jehovah.

22. And you will be my people, and I will be your God.

23. Behold, the storm of Jehovah’s wrath has gone forth! A tempestuous storm will burst down upon the head of the wicked.

24. Jehovah’s burning anger will not turn away until He has done it, until He has accomplished the purposes of His heart! In the latter days, you will fully understand this.

Jeremiah 31

1. At that time, says Jehovah, I will be God to all the families of Israel, and they will be my people.

2. Thus says Jehovah: “The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness. He came to give Israel rest.”

3. From afar, Jehovah appeared to me saying, “Yea, with an everlasting love, I have loved you; therefore, in lovingkindness have I drawn you.

4.I will again build you, and you will be rebuilt, O virgin of Israel. You will again adorn yourself with your tambourines and go forth in a dance of merrymakers.

5.

6.

7.

8. Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and I will gather them from the far reaches of the earth, among them the blind and lame, the woman with child, and she that travails with child, together; a great company will return here.

9. With weeping and with supplications will they come. I will bear them along, and I will bring them to streams of waters along a smooth path wherein they will not stumble, for I am a Father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.

10. Let the Gentiles hear the word of Jehovah! Let them proclaim it in the distant isles and say, ‘He who scattered Israel will gather him, and He will watch over him as a shepherd does his flock,’

11. for Jehovah has ransomed Jacob and has redeemed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he.

12. And they will come forth and shout for joy on the height of Zion, and they will flow to the goodness of Jehovah, for the grain, and new wine, and fresh oil, and flocks and herds. And their souls will be like a watered garden, and they will never languish again.

13. Then the virgin, together with the young and old men, will rejoice in the dance, for I will have turned their mourning into joy, and I will comfort them and give them joy for their sorrow.

14. And I will satiate the soul of the priests with abundance, and my people will be sated with my goodness, says Jehovah.

15. Thus says Jehovah, “A voice is heard in Ramah, bitter wailing and weeping, the voice of Rachel weeping for her children, refusing to be comforted for her children, because they are not.

16.

17.

18.

19.

20. “Isn’t Ephraim my precious son? Isn’t he a delightful child? Whenever I speak against him, I earnestly remember him still, and my insides groan for him. I will show him great compassion,” says Jehovah.

21.

22.

23.

27.

28. And it shall come to pass that as I have watched over them to root out, and to tear down, and to overthrow, and to kill, and to bring evil, so will I watch over them to build up and to plant, says Jehovah.

29.

30.

31. “Behold, days are coming, says Jehovah, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah,

32.not the kind of covenant that I made with their fathers in the day I took their hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant which they broke, even though I was their Husband, says Jehovah.

33.For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says Jehovah: I will put my law within them, and I will engrave it on their heart. And I will be their God, and they will be my people.

34.And they will no longer teach, each his fellow and each his brother, saying, ‘Know Jehovah!’ For they will all know me, from the least of them even to the greatest, says Jehovah. For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”

35.

36.

37. Thus says Jehovah, “If the heaven above be measured, and the foundations of earth below be searched out, then will I reject all the seed of Israel because of all that they have done, says Jehovah.”

38.and they will be my people, and I will be their God.

39. And I will give them one heart and one way, that they might fear me always, for their good and for the good of their children after them.

40. And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them and cease to do them good, and I will put my fear in their heart so that they do not turn away from me.

41. And I will rejoice over them, to do them good, and in faithfulness will I plant them in this land with all my heart and with all my soul.

42. For thus says Jehovah: Just as I have brought upon this people all this great destruction, so will I bring upon them all the good that I have spoken concerning them.

6. Behold, I will bring it restoration and healing; I will heal them and reveal to them an abundance of peace and truth.

7. And I will cause the captives of Judah and the captives of Israel to return, and I will build them up as at the beginning.

8. And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity whereby they sinned against me, and I will pardon all of their iniquities whereby they have sinned against me and whereby they have transgressed against me.

9. And Jerusalem will give me a reputation for joy, for praise, and for glory before all the nations of the earth who hear of all the good that I will have done for them, and they will fear and tremble because of all the good and because of all the prosperity that I will provide that city.

10.

11.

12.

13.

14. Behold, the days are coming, says Jehovah, when I will bring to pass the good word which I have declared to the house of of Israel and to the house of Judah.

15. And in those days, and at that time, I will cause David’s righteous Branch to come up, and he will execute justice and righteousness on earth.

16. In those days, Judah will be saved, and Jerusalem will dwell securely, and this is what Jehovah will call her: Our Righteousness.

17. For thus says Jehovah, “David will not lack a man to sit on the throne of the house of Israel,

18.and the priests, the Levites, will not lack a man to offer a burnt offering before me, or burn a grain offering, or make sacrifice, forever.”

19. And the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah saying,

20. Thus says Jehovah: If you can break my covenant of the day and my covenant of the night, so that there is no day and night in their appointed time,

21.then my covenant with David my servant, that he will have a son to reign on his throne, may also be broken, as well as my covenant with the Levites, the priests, my ministers.

22. As the host of the heavens cannot be numbered and the sand of the sea cannot be measured, thus will I multiply the seed of David my servant and of the Levites who minister to me.”

23. And the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, saying,

24.“Have you not considered what this people have spoken, saying, ‘The two families that the Lord chose, He has rejected,’ and they so despise my people that in their eyes, they are no longer a nation.”

25. Thus says Jehovah: If I have not established my ordinance of day and night, or laws for heaven and earth,

26.then I will reject the seed of Jacob, and of David my servant, that I should take of his descendants rulers for the children of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. I will bring their captives back and show them compassion!
