Jeremiah 28

It's a toss up which chapter I will pick from those that are not yet complete. I make a list by chapter of the ones which are closest to being completed already by the automation. One or other may pop up to the top depending on which chapter I have just finished. There are about 70 that are half done or better and I have noticed that the average completion factor is increasing as each chapter is completed. This job may become easier as I continue.

At first Numbers got the nod but the verse numbering was confusing so I think I will leave that one till later. I need to write a bit about verses and chapters. I should do a bit more on my text choices also.

Here is another chapter of Jeremiah. Needed a short one this weekend. This is a very interesting study in cadences. Note where the atnah is in each verse (marked by a carriage return). It is telling how to breathe in the verses and emphasizing or not if there is any rest, whether serious or slightly sarcastic. Note the case where only one word is in the second 'half' of the verse.

Jeremiah 28
וַיְהִ֣י ׀ בַּשָּׁנָ֣ה הַהִ֗יא בְּרֵאשִׁית֙ מַמְלֶ֙כֶת֙ צִדְקִיָּ֣ה מֶֽלֶךְ־יְהוּדָ֔ה בַּשָּׁנָה֙ הָֽרְבִעִ֔ית בַּחֹ֖דֶשׁ הַחֲמִישִׁ֑י
אָמַ֣ר אֵלַ֡י חֲנַנְיָה֩ בֶן־עַזּ֨וּר הַנָּבִ֜יא אֲשֶׁ֤ר מִגִּבְעוֹן֙ בְּבֵ֣ית יְהוָ֔ה לְעֵינֵ֧י הַכֹּהֲנִ֛ים וְכָל־הָעָ֖ם לֵאמֹֽר
1 And it happened in that year, in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the fourth year, in the fifth new moon, Hananiah child of Azur the prophet that was from Gibeon, said to me in the house of Yahweh in the sight of the priests and all the people, saying, 34
35
כֹּֽה־אָמַ֞ר יְהוָ֧ה צְבָא֛וֹת אֱלֹהֵ֥י יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל לֵאמֹ֑ר
שָׁבַ֞רְתִּי אֶת־עֹ֖ל מֶ֥לֶךְ בָּבֶֽל
2 Thus says Yahweh of Hosts the God of Israel, saying,
I have broken the shackle of the king of Babel.

בְּע֣וֹד ׀ שְׁנָתַ֣יִם יָמִ֗ים אֲנִ֤י מֵשִׁיב֙ אֶל־הַמָּק֣וֹם הַזֶּ֔ה אֶֽת־כָּל־כְּלֵ֖י בֵּ֣ית יְהוָ֑ה
אֲשֶׁ֨ר לָקַ֜ח נְבוּכַדנֶאצַּ֤ר מֶֽלֶךְ־בָּבֶל֙ מִן־הַמָּק֣וֹם הַזֶּ֔ה וַיְבִיאֵ֖ם בָּבֶֽל
3 Before two years I will restore to this place all the instruments of the house of Yahweh,
which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babel took from this place and brought them to Babel.

24
וְאֶת־יְכָנְיָ֣ה בֶן־יְהוֹיָקִ֣ים מֶֽלֶךְ־יְ֠הוּדָה וְאֶת־כָּל־גָּל֨וּת יְהוּדָ֜ה הַבָּאִ֣ים בָּבֶ֗לָה אֲנִ֥י מֵשִׁ֛יב אֶל־הַמָּק֥וֹם הַזֶּ֖ה נְאֻם־יְהוָ֑ה
כִּ֣י אֶשְׁבֹּ֔ר אֶת־עֹ֖ל מֶ֥לֶךְ בָּבֶֽל
4 And Jeconiah child of Jehoiachim king of Judah, and all the exiles of Judah that went to Babel, I will restore to this place. An oracle of Yahweh,
for I will break the shackle of the king of Babel.

וַיֹּ֙אמֶר֙ יִרְמְיָ֣ה הַנָּבִ֔יא אֶל־חֲנַנְיָ֖ה הַנָּבִ֑יא
לְעֵינֵ֤י הַכֹּֽהֲנִים֙ וּלְעֵינֵ֣י כָל־הָעָ֔ם הָעֹמְדִ֖ים בְּבֵ֥ית יְהוָֽה
5 And Jeremiah the prophet said to Hananiah the prophet,
in the sight of the priests and in the sight of all the people standing in the house of Yahweh,
16
20
וַיֹּ֙אמֶר֙ יִרְמְיָ֣ה הַנָּבִ֔יא אָמֵ֕ן כֵּ֖ן יַעֲשֶׂ֣ה יְהוָ֑ה
יָקֵ֤ם יְהוָה֙ אֶת־דְּבָרֶ֔יךָ אֲשֶׁ֣ר נִבֵּ֗אתָ לְהָשִׁ֞יב כְּלֵ֤י בֵית־יְהוָה֙ וְכָל־הַגּוֹלָ֔ה מִבָּבֶ֖ל אֶל־הַמָּק֥וֹם הַזֶּֽה
6 And Jeremiah the prophet said, Amen. So may Yahweh do.
May Yahweh uphold your words that you have prophesied to return the instruments of the house of Yahweh and all the exiled from Babel to this place.

אַךְ־שְׁמַֽע־נָא֙ הַדָּבָ֣ר הַזֶּ֔ה אֲשֶׁ֥ר אָנֹכִ֖י דֹּבֵ֣ר בְּאָזְנֶ֑יךָ
וּבְאָזְנֵ֖י כָּל־הָעָֽם
7 But hear, if you will, this word that I speak in your ears,
and in the ears of all the people,
20

הַנְּבִיאִ֗ים אֲשֶׁ֨ר הָי֧וּ לְפָנַ֛י וּלְפָנֶ֖יךָ מִן־הָֽעוֹלָ֑ם
וַיִּנָּ֨בְא֜וּ אֶל־אֲרָצ֤וֹת רַבּוֹת֙ וְעַל־מַמְלָכ֣וֹת גְּדֹל֔וֹת לְמִלְחָמָ֖ה וּלְרָעָ֥ה וּלְדָֽבֶר
8 The prophets who are in my presence and in your presence from eras past,
and prophesied to many lands and over great kingdoms, of war and of evil and of pestilence,
18
28
הַנָּבִ֕יא אֲשֶׁ֥ר יִנָּבֵ֖א לְשָׁל֑וֹם
בְּבֹא֙ דְּבַ֣ר הַנָּבִ֗יא יִוָּדַע֙ הַנָּבִ֔יא אֲשֶׁר־שְׁלָח֥וֹ יְהוָ֖ה בֶּאֱמֶֽת
9 The prophet that prophesies of peace,
when the word of the prophet is come, it is known of the prophet that Yahweh sent him in truth.
11
23
וַיִּקַּ֞ח חֲנַנְיָ֤ה הַנָּבִיא֙ אֶת־הַמּוֹטָ֔ה מֵעַ֕ל צַוַּ֖אר יִרְמְיָ֣ה הַנָּבִ֑יא
וַֽיִּשְׁבְּרֵֽהוּ
10 And Hananiah the prophet took the stave from off the neck of Jeremiah the prophet
and broke it.
24
5
וַיֹּ֣אמֶר חֲנַנְיָה֩ לְעֵינֵ֨י כָל־הָעָ֜ם לֵאמֹ֗ר כֹּה֮ אָמַ֣ר יְהוָה֒ כָּ֣כָה אֶשְׁבֹּ֞ר אֶת־עֹ֣ל ׀ נְבֻֽכַדְנֶאצַּ֣ר מֶֽלֶךְ־בָּבֶ֗ל בְּעוֹד֙ שְׁנָתַ֣יִם יָמִ֔ים מֵעַ֕ל צַוַּ֖אר כָּל־הַגּוֹיִ֑ם
וַיֵּ֛לֶךְ יִרְמְיָ֥ה הַנָּבִ֖יא לְדַרְכּֽוֹ
11 And Hananiah said in the sight of all the people, saying, Thus says Yahweh, Thus I will break the shackle of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babel before two years, from off the neck of all the nations.
And Jeremiah the prophet went his way.
50
12
וַיְהִ֥י דְבַר־יְהוָ֖ה אֶֽל־יִרְמְיָ֑ה
אַ֠חֲרֵי שְׁב֞וֹר חֲנַנְיָ֤ה הַנָּבִיא֙ אֶת־הַמּוֹטָ֔ה מֵעַ֗ל צַוַּ֛אר יִרְמְיָ֥ה הַנָּבִ֖יא לֵאמֹֽר
12 And the word of Yahweh happened to Jeremiah,
after Hananiah the prophet had broken the stave from off the neck of Jeremiah the prophet saying,
10
28
הָלוֹךְ֩ וְאָמַרְתָּ֨ אֶל־חֲנַנְיָ֜ה לֵאמֹ֗ר כֹּ֚ה אָמַ֣ר יְהוָ֔ה מוֹטֹ֥ת עֵ֖ץ שָׁבָ֑רְתָּ
וְעָשִׂ֥יתָ תַחְתֵּיהֶ֖ן מֹט֥וֹת בַּרְזֶֽל
13 Go and say to Hananiah, saying, Thus says Yahweh, Rods of timber you have broken,
but you will make instead of them rods of iron.
23
11
כִּ֣י כֹֽה־אָמַר֩ יְהוָ֨ה צְבָא֜וֹת אֱלֹהֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֗ל עֹ֣ל בַּרְזֶ֡ל נָתַ֜תִּי עַל־צַוַּ֣אר ׀ כָּל־הַגּוֹיִ֣ם הָאֵ֗לֶּה לַעֲבֹ֛ד אֶת־נְבֻכַדְנֶאצַּ֥ר מֶֽלֶךְ־בָּבֶ֖ל וַעֲבָדֻ֑הוּ
וְגַ֛ם אֶת־חַיַּ֥ת הַשָּׂדֶ֖ה נָתַ֥תִּי לֽוֹ
14 Because thus says Yahweh of hosts, the God of Israel, A shackle of iron I have given on the neck of all these nations to serve Nebuchadnezzar king of Babel, and they will serve him,
and moreover the animals of the field I have given to him.
50
12
וַיֹּ֨אמֶר יִרְמְיָ֧ה הַנָּבִ֛יא אֶל־חֲנַנְיָ֥ה הַנָּבִ֖יא שְׁמַֽע־נָ֣א חֲנַנְיָ֑ה
לֹֽא־שְׁלָחֲךָ֣ יְהוָ֔ה וְאַתָּ֗ה הִבְטַ֛חְתָּ אֶת־הָעָ֥ם הַזֶּ֖ה עַל־שָֽׁקֶר
15 And Jeremiah the prophet said to Hananiah the prophet, hear if you will Hananiah,
Yahweh has not sent you, but you make this people to trust a shackle of falsehood.
22
21
לָכֵ֗ן כֹּ֚ה אָמַ֣ר יְהוָ֔ה הִנְנִי֙ מְשַֽׁלֵּֽחֲךָ֔ מֵעַ֖ל פְּנֵ֣י הָאֲדָמָ֑ה
הַשָּׁנָה֙ אַתָּ֣ה מֵ֔ת כִּֽי־סָרָ֥ה דִבַּ֖רְתָּ אֶל־יְהוָֽה
16 Therefore thus says Yahweh, Note me well. I will send you from off the surface of the ground.
This year you will die because you have spoken revolt to Yahweh.
22
14
וַיָּ֛מָת חֲנַנְיָ֥ה הַנָּבִ֖יא בַּשָּׁנָ֣ה הַהִ֑יא
בַּחֹ֖דֶשׁ הַשְּׁבִיעִֽי
17 And Hananiah the prophet died in that year,
in the seventh month.
