Jeremiah 32

Jeremiah may be dark but there is light here. What does the human need to learn compassion? Would you raise your children with such violence? Jeremiah's long prayer is filled with his own apprehension, even with the fear of losing on a purchase transaction. Sounds quite realistic.

Yahweh is realistic. Consequences of stupid behaviour are real also. But the promise is not made void by the limitations of the ones to whom the promises are made. Manifest destiny notwithstanding. God is neither racist nor patriotic. What about Yahweh? What about us?

Surely from the failed state religions of the past century we can figure out that patriotism is a limited god. But let us care for one another. Then we will learn character and specifically the character of Yahweh.

Jeremiah 32 Fn Min Max Syll
הַדָּבָ֞ר אֲשֶׁר־הָיָ֤ה אֶֽל־יִרְמְיָ֙הוּ֙ מֵאֵ֣ת יְהוָ֔ה בַּשָּׁנָה֙ הָעֲשִׂרִ֔ית לְצִדְקִיָּ֖הוּ מֶ֣לֶךְ יְהוּדָ֑ה
הִ֧יא הַשָּׁנָ֛ה שְׁמֹנֶֽה־עֶשְׂרֵ֥ה שָׁנָ֖ה לִנְבֽוּכַדְרֶאצַּֽר
1 The word that happened to Jeremiah from Yahweh in the tenth year of Zedekiah, king of Judah.
This was the eighteenth year of Nebukadretsar.
3c 4C 33
16
וְאָ֗ז חֵ֚יל מֶ֣לֶךְ בָּבֶ֔ל צָרִ֖ים עַל־יְרוּשָׁלִָ֑ם
וְיִרְמְיָ֣הוּ הַנָּבִ֗יא הָיָ֤ה כָלוּא֙ בַּחֲצַ֣ר הַמַּטָּרָ֔ה אֲשֶׁ֖ר בֵּֽית־מֶ֥לֶךְ יְהוּדָֽה
2 By then the force of the king of Babel was besieging Jerusalem,
and Jeremiah the prophet was under restraint in the court of the cell that was the house of king of Judah.
3e 4C 14
27
אֲשֶׁ֣ר כְּלָא֔וֹ צִדְקִיָּ֥הוּ מֶֽלֶךְ־יְהוּדָ֖ה לֵאמֹ֑ר
מַדּוּעַ֩ אַתָּ֨ה נִבָּ֜א לֵאמֹ֗ר כֹּ֚ה אָמַ֣ר יְהוָ֔ה הִנְנִ֨י נֹתֵ֜ן אֶת־הָעִ֥יר הַזֹּ֛את בְּיַ֥ד מֶֽלֶךְ־בָּבֶ֖ל וּלְכָדָֽהּ
3 Zedekiah king of Judah had been happy to restrain him, saying,
For what purpose are you to prophesy, saying, Thus says Yahweh, Note me well giving this city into the hand of the king of Babel, and he will conquer it?
3d 4C 16
32
וְצִדְקִיָּ֙הוּ֙ מֶ֣לֶךְ יְהוּדָ֔ה לֹ֥א יִמָּלֵ֖ט מִיַּ֣ד הַכַּשְׂדִּ֑ים
כִּ֣י הִנָּתֹ֤ן יִנָּתֵן֙ בְּיַ֣ד מֶֽלֶךְ־בָּבֶ֔ל וְדִבֶּר־פִּ֣יו עִם־פִּ֔יו וְעֵינָ֖יו אֶת־עֵינָ֥יו תִּרְאֶֽינָה
4 And Zedekiah king of Judah, he will not escape from the hand of the Chaldeans?
For he will be given into the hand of the king of Babel, and will speak, its mouth with its mouth, and its eyes with its eyes, will see?
3e 4C 19
28
וּבָבֶ֞ל יוֹלִ֤ךְ אֶת־צִדְקִיָּ֙הוּ֙ וְשָׁ֣ם יִֽהְיֶ֔ה עַד־פָּקְדִ֥י אֹת֖וֹ נְאֻם־יְהוָ֑ה
כִּ֧י תִֽלָּחֲמ֛וּ אֶת־הַכַּשְׂדִּ֖ים לֹ֥א תַצְלִֽיחוּ
5 And to Babel will be ushered Zedekiah? and there he will be until I visit him? an oracle of Yahweh?
for you fight the Chaldeans? You will not prosper?
3c 4C 23
13
וַיֹּ֖אמֶר יִרְמְיָ֑הוּ
הָיָ֥ה דְּבַר־יְהוָ֖ה אֵלַ֥י לֵאמֹֽר
6 And Jeremiah said,
It happened that Yahweh spoke to me saying,
3e 4A 7
10
הִנֵּ֣ה חֲנַמְאֵ֗ל בֶּן־שַׁלֻּם֙ דֹּֽדְךָ֔ בָּ֥א אֵלֶ֖יךָ לֵאמֹ֑ר
קְנֵ֣ה לְךָ֗ אֶת־שָׂדִי֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר בַּעֲנָת֔וֹת כִּ֥י לְךָ֛ מִשְׁפַּ֥ט הַגְּאֻלָּ֖ה לִקְנֽוֹת
7 Behold Hanmel child of Shalum, your uncle, will come to you to say,
Buy for yourself my field that is in Anathoth, for yours is the judgment of redemption to buy.
3d 4B 16
23
וַיָּבֹ֣א אֵ֠לַי חֲנַמְאֵ֨ל בֶּן־דֹּדִ֜י כִּדְבַ֣ר יְהוָה֮ אֶל־חֲצַ֣ר הַמַּטָּרָה֒ וַיֹּ֣אמֶר אֵלַ֡י קְנֵ֣ה נָ֠א אֶת־שָׂדִ֨י אֲשֶׁר־בַּעֲנָת֜וֹת אֲשֶׁ֣ר ׀ בְּאֶ֣רֶץ בִּנְיָמִ֗ין כִּֽי־לְךָ֞ מִשְׁפַּ֧ט הַיְרֻשָּׁ֛ה וּלְךָ֥ הַגְּאֻלָּ֖ה קְנֵה־לָ֑ךְ
וָאֵדַ֕ע כִּ֥י דְבַר־יְהוָ֖ה הֽוּא
8 And Hanmel child of my uncle came to me according to the word of Yahweh, to the court of the cell and said to me, You buy please a field that is in Anathoth, that is in the land of Benjamin, for yours is the judgment of possession, and yours the redemption. You buy for yourself.
And I knew that it is the word of Yahweh.
3c 4B 63
9
וָֽאֶקְנֶה֙ אֶת־הַשָּׂדֶ֔ה מֵאֵ֛ת חֲנַמְאֵ֥ל בֶּן־דֹּדִ֖י אֲשֶׁ֣ר בַּעֲנָת֑וֹת
וָֽאֶשְׁקֲלָה־לּוֹ֙ אֶת־הַכֶּ֔סֶף שִׁבְעָ֥ה שְׁקָלִ֖ים וַעֲשָׂרָ֥ה הַכָּֽסֶף
9 And I bought the field from Hanmel child of my uncle that is in Anathoth,
and I weighed for him the silver, seventeen shekels of the silver.
3d 4B 21
21
וָאֶכְתֹּ֤ב בַּסֵּ֙פֶר֙ וָֽאֶחְתֹּ֔ם וָאָעֵ֖ד עֵדִ֑ים
וָאֶשְׁקֹ֥ל הַכֶּ֖סֶף בְּמֹאזְנָֽיִם
10 And I wrote in the record and sealed it, and I had it witnessed by witnesses,
and I weighed the silver in the balances.
3e 4C 14
10
וָאֶקַּ֖ח אֶת־סֵ֣פֶר הַמִּקְנָ֑ה
אֶת־הֶֽחָת֛וּם הַמִּצְוָ֥ה וְהַחֻקִּ֖ים וְאֶת־הַגָּלֽוּי
11 And I took the record of the purchase,
what was sealed by the commandment and the statutes, and what was uncovered.
3d 4B 9
16
וָאֶתֵּ֞ן אֶת־הַסֵּ֣פֶר הַמִּקְנָ֗ה אֶל־בָּר֣וּךְ בֶּן־נֵרִיָּה֮ בֶּן־מַחְסֵיָה֒ לְעֵינֵי֙ חֲנַמְאֵ֣ל דֹּדִ֔י וּלְעֵינֵי֙ הָֽעֵדִ֔ים הַכֹּתְבִ֖ים בְּסֵ֣פֶר הַמִּקְנָ֑ה
לְעֵינֵי֙ כָּל־הַיְּהוּדִ֔ים הַיֹּשְׁבִ֖ים בַּחֲצַ֥ר הַמַּטָּרָֽה
12 And I consigned the record of the purchase to Baruch, child of Neriah, child of Mechasyah, in the sight of Hanmel, my uncle's, and in the sight of the witnesses that wrote in the record of the purchase,
in the sight of all the Judeans sitting in the court of the cell.
3e 4B 44
17
וָֽאֲצַוֶּה֙ אֶת בָּר֔וּךְ לְעֵינֵיהֶ֖ם לֵאמֹֽר 13 And I commanded Baruch in their sight, saying, 3e 3g 13
כֹּֽה־אָמַר֩ יְהוָ֨ה צְבָא֜וֹת אֱלֹהֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֗ל לָק֣וֹחַ אֶת־הַסְּפָרִ֣ים הָאֵ֡לֶּה אֵ֣ת סֵפֶר֩ הַמִּקְנָ֨ה הַזֶּ֜ה וְאֵ֣ת הֶחָת֗וּם וְאֵ֨ת סֵ֤פֶר הַגָּלוּי֙ הַזֶּ֔ה וּנְתַתָּ֖ם בִּכְלִי־חָ֑רֶשׂ
לְמַ֥עַן יַעַמְד֖וּ יָמִ֥ים רַבִּֽים
14 Thus says Yahweh of hosts, the God of Israel, take these records, the record of this purchase and what is sealed, and this uncovered record, and consign it in the earthenware vessel,
so that they will stand many days.
3e 4C 52
10
כִּ֣י כֹ֥ה אָמַ֛ר יְהוָ֥ה צְבָא֖וֹת אֱלֹהֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל
ע֣וֹד יִקָּנ֥וּ בָתִּ֛ים וְשָׂד֥וֹת וּכְרָמִ֖ים בָּאָ֥רֶץ הַזֹּֽאת
15 B Because thus says Yahweh of hosts, the God of Israel,
They will continue to be purchased, houses and fields and vineyards, in this land.
3d 4B 15
17
וָאֶתְפַּלֵּ֖ל אֶל־יְהוָ֑ה
אַחֲרֵ֤י תִתִּי֙ אֶת־סֵ֣פֶר הַמִּקְנָ֔ה אֶל־בָּר֥וּךְ בֶּן־נֵרִיָּ֖ה לֵאמֹֽר
16 And I prayed to Yahweh,
after I had consigned the record of the purchase to to Baruch child of Neriah, saying.
3e 4C 7
20
אֲהָהּ֮ אֲדֹנָ֣י יְהוִה֒ הִנֵּ֣ה ׀ אַתָּ֣ה עָשִׂ֗יתָ אֶת־הַשָּׁמַ֙יִם֙ וְאֶת־הָאָ֔רֶץ בְּכֹֽחֲךָ֙ הַגָּד֔וֹל וּבִֽזְרֹעֲךָ֖ הַנְּטוּיָ֑ה
לֹֽא־יִפָּלֵ֥א מִמְּךָ֖ כָּל־דָּבָֽר
17 Aye yai yai, my Lord Yahweh, behold yourself, you have made the heavens and the earth in your great power and with your arm stretched out.
Nothing is too wonderful for you.
3e 4B 38
8
עֹ֤שֶׂה חֶ֙סֶד֙ לַֽאֲלָפִ֔ים וּמְשַׁלֵּם֙ עֲוֺ֣ן אָב֔וֹת אֶל־חֵ֥יק בְּנֵיהֶ֖ם אַחֲרֵיהֶ֑ם
הָאֵ֤ל הַגָּדוֹל֙ הַגִּבּ֔וֹר יְהוָ֥ה צְבָא֖וֹת שְׁמֽוֹ
18 C You undertake mercy for thousands, and repay the iniquity of parents into the embrace of their children after them,
the One, the Great, the Valiant, Yahweh of hosts is his name.
3e 4C 24
15
גְּדֹל֙ הָֽעֵצָ֔ה וְרַ֖ב הָעֲלִֽילִיָּ֑ה
אֲשֶׁר־עֵינֶ֣יךָ פְקֻח֗וֹת עַל־כָּל־דַּרְכֵי֙ בְּנֵ֣י אָדָ֔ם לָתֵ֤ת לְאִישׁ֙ כִּדְרָכָ֔יו וְכִפְרִ֖י מַעֲלָלָֽיו
19 Great the counsel and abundant the practices,
as your eyes are given sight over all the ways of the children of humanity, to give to each according to its ways and according to the fruit of its practices.
3e 4C 12
30
אֲשֶׁר־שַׂ֠מְתָּ אֹת֨וֹת וּמֹפְתִ֤ים בְּאֶֽרֶץ־מִצְרַ֙יִם֙ עַד־הַיּ֣וֹם הַזֶּ֔ה וּבְיִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל וּבָֽאָדָ֑ם
וַתַּעֲשֶׂה־לְּךָ֥ שֵׁ֖ם כַּיּ֥וֹם הַזֶּֽה
20 You who have set up signs and portents in the land of Egypt to this day, and in Israel and among humanity,
and have made for yourself a name as on this day.
3e 4C 27
11
וַתֹּצֵ֛א אֶת־עַמְּךָ֥ אֶת־יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל מֵאֶ֣רֶץ מִצְרָ֑יִם
בְּאֹת֣וֹת וּבְמוֹפְתִ֗ים וּבְיָ֤ד חֲזָקָה֙ וּבְאֶזְר֣וֹעַ נְטוּיָ֔ה וּבְמוֹרָ֖א גָּדֽוֹל
21 And have brought forth your people Israel from the land of Egypt,
with signs and with portents, and by a courageous hand and by an arm stretched out and with great fear.
3d 4C 16
23
וַתִּתֵּ֤ן לָהֶם֙ אֶת־הָאָ֣רֶץ הַזֹּ֔את אֲשֶׁר־נִשְׁבַּ֥עְתָּ לַאֲבוֹתָ֖ם לָתֵ֣ת לָהֶ֑ם
אֶ֛רֶץ זָבַ֥ת חָלָ֖ב וּדְבָֽשׁ
22 And you gave them this land that you swore to their ancestors to give them,
a land gushing with milk and honey.
3d 4C 24
8
וַיָּבֹ֜אוּ וַיִּֽרְשׁ֣וּ אֹתָ֗הּ וְלֹֽא־שָׁמְע֤וּ בְקוֹלֶ֙ךָ֙ וּבְתוֹרָתְךָ֣ לֹא־הָלָ֔כוּ אֵת֩ כָּל־אֲשֶׁ֨ר צִוִּ֧יתָה לָהֶ֛ם לַעֲשׂ֖וֹת לֹ֣א עָשׂ֑וּ
וַתַּקְרֵ֣א אֹתָ֔ם אֵ֥ת כָּל־הָרָעָ֖ה הַזֹּֽאת
23 And they came and they possessed it, and they did not hear with your voice, and in your instruction they did not walk. All that you commanded them to do, they have not done,
so you have had them encounter all evil this.
3c 4C 38
12
הִנֵּ֣ה הַסֹּלְל֗וֹת בָּ֣אוּ הָעִיר֮ לְלָכְדָהּ֒ וְהָעִ֣יר נִתְּנָ֗ה בְּיַ֤ד הַכַּשְׂדִּים֙ הַנִּלְחָמִ֣ים עָלֶ֔יהָ מִפְּנֵ֛י הַחֶ֥רֶב וְהָרָעָ֖ב וְהַדָּ֑בֶר
וַאֲשֶׁ֥ר דִּבַּ֛רְתָּ הָיָ֖ה וְהִנְּךָ֥ רֹאֶֽה
24 Behold the ramps. They enter the city to conquer it, and the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans that fight against it, in the face of the sword and the famine and the pestilence.
And what you have spoken has happened. Here you are, seeing.
3d 4C 42
13
וְאַתָּ֞ה אָמַ֤רְתָּ אֵלַי֙ אֲדֹנָ֣י יְהוִ֔ה קְנֵֽה־לְךָ֧ הַשָּׂדֶ֛ה בַּכֶּ֖סֶף וְהָעֵ֣ד עֵדִ֑ים
וְהָעִ֥יר נִתְּנָ֖ה בְּיַ֥ד הַכַּשְׂדִּֽים
25 But you, you said to me, O Lord Yahweh, You buy for yourself the field with silver and have it witnessed by witnesses,
and the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans.
3c 4C 28
10
וַיְהִי֙ דְּבַר־יְהוָ֔ה אֶֽל־יִרְמְיָ֖הוּ לֵאמֹֽר 26 And the word of Yahweh happened to Jeremiah, saying, 3e 3g 13
הִנֵּה֙ אֲנִ֣י יְהוָ֔ה אֱלֹהֵ֖י כָּל־בָּשָׂ֑ר
הֲ‍ֽמִמֶּ֔נִּי יִפָּלֵ֖א כָּל־דָּבָֽר
27 Behold, I am Yahweh, the God of all flesh.
For me is any thing too wonderful?
3e 4B 12
9
לָכֵ֕ן כֹּ֖ה אָמַ֣ר יְהוָ֑ה
הִנְנִ֣י נֹתֵן֩ אֶת־הָעִ֨יר הַזֹּ֜את בְּיַ֣ד הַכַּשְׂדִּ֗ים וּבְיַ֛ד נְבֽוּכַדְרֶאצַּ֥ר מֶֽלֶךְ־בָּבֶ֖ל וּלְכָדָֽהּ
28 Therefore thus says Yahweh, Note me well, giving this city into the hand of the Chaldeans and into the hand of Nebukadretsar, king of Babel,
and he will conquer it.
3d 4B 7
28
וּבָ֣אוּ הַכַּשְׂדִּ֗ים הַנִּלְחָמִים֙ עַל־הָעִ֣יר הַזֹּ֔את וְהִצִּ֜יתוּ אֶת־הָעִ֥יר הַזֹּ֛את בָּאֵ֖שׁ וּשְׂרָפ֑וּהָ
וְאֵ֣ת הַבָּתִּ֡ים אֲשֶׁר֩ קִטְּר֨וּ עַל־גַּגּֽוֹתֵיהֶ֜ם לַבַּ֗עַל וְהִסִּ֤כוּ נְסָכִים֙ לֵאלֹהִ֣ים אֲחֵרִ֔ים לְמַ֖עַן הַכְעִסֵֽנִי
29 B And the Chaldeans will come that fight this city, and they will char this city in the fire and incinerate it,
and the houses where they have burnt incense on their housetops to Baal, and spilled out libations to other gods so that they may grieve me.
3d 4C 30
37
כִּֽי־הָי֨וּ בְנֵֽי־יִשְׂרָאֵ֜ל וּבְנֵ֣י יְהוּדָ֗ה אַ֣ךְ עֹשִׂ֥ים הָרַ֛ע בְּעֵינַ֖י מִנְּעֻרֹֽתֵיהֶ֑ם
כִּ֣י בְנֵֽי־יִשְׂרָאֵ֗ל אַ֣ךְ מַכְעִסִ֥ים אֹתִ֛י בְּמַעֲשֵׂ֥ה יְדֵיהֶ֖ם נְאֻם־יְהוָֽה
30 Because the children of Israel and the children of Judah were surely doing evil in my eyes from their youth,
for the children of Israel surely grieve me with the deeds of their hands. An oracle of Yahweh.
3d 4B 25
23
כִּ֧י עַל־אַפִּ֣י וְעַל־חֲמָתִ֗י הָ֤יְתָה לִּי֙ הָעִ֣יר הַזֹּ֔את לְמִן־הַיּוֹם֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר בָּנ֣וּ אוֹתָ֔הּ וְעַ֖ד הַיּ֣וֹם הַזֶּ֑ה
לַהֲסִירָ֖הּ מֵעַ֥ל פָּנָֽי
31 c For concerning my anger, and concerning my heat, this city has become for me, from the day that they built it and till this day...
that I should put it aside from my presence,
3c 4C 32
8
עַל֩ כָּל־רָעַ֨ת בְּנֵֽי־יִשְׂרָאֵ֜ל וּבְנֵ֣י יְהוּדָ֗ה אֲשֶׁ֤ר עָשׂוּ֙ לְהַכְעִסֵ֔נִי הֵ֤מָּה מַלְכֵיהֶם֙ שָֽׂרֵיהֶ֔ם כֹּהֲנֵיהֶ֖ם וּנְבִֽיאֵיהֶ֑ם
וְאִ֣ישׁ יְהוּדָ֔ה וְיֹשְׁבֵ֖י יְרוּשָׁלִָֽם
32 ~ Over all the evil of the children of Israel and the children of Judah that they did to grieve me, they, their kings, their nobility, their priests, and their prophets,
and each of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
3e 4C 39
12
וַיִּפְנ֥וּ אֵלַ֛י עֹ֖רֶף וְלֹ֣א פָנִ֑ים
וְלַמֵּ֤ד אֹתָם֙ הַשְׁכֵּ֣ם וְלַמֵּ֔ד וְאֵינָ֥ם שֹׁמְעִ֖ים לָקַ֥חַת מוּסָֽר
33 And they faced to me, nape and not faces,
and I taught them, rising early, and teaching, and there is none of them hearing, to lay hold of my chastening.
3d 4C 11
20
וַיָּשִׂ֣ימוּ שִׁקּֽוּצֵיהֶ֗ם בַּבַּ֛יִת אֲשֶׁר־נִקְרָֽא־שְׁמִ֥י עָלָ֖יו לְטַמְּאֽוֹ 34 But they set up their detestable things in the house that is called, My Name Is On It, to pollute it. 3d 4B 22
וַיִּבְנוּ֩ אֶת־בָּמ֨וֹת הַבַּ֜עַל אֲשֶׁ֣ר ׀ בְּגֵ֣יא בֶן־הִנֹּ֗ם לְ֠הַעֲבִיר אֶת־בְּנֵיהֶ֣ם וְאֶת־בְּנוֹתֵיהֶם֮ לַמֹּלֶךְ֒ אֲשֶׁ֣ר לֹֽא־צִוִּיתִ֗ים וְלֹ֤א עָֽלְתָה֙ עַל־לִבִּ֔י לַעֲשׂ֖וֹת הַתּוֹעֵבָ֣ה הַזֹּ֑את
לְמַ֖עַן הַחֲטִ֥יא אֶת־יְהוּדָֽה
35 And they built the high places of the Baal that are in the gorge of the child of Hinnom, to transfer their sons and their daughters to Moloch, that I did not command them, nor did such come up in my heart to do this abomination,
so as to make Judah sin.
3e 4C 54
10
וְעַתָּ֕ה לָכֵ֛ן כֹּֽה־אָמַ֥ר יְהוָ֖ה אֱלֹהֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל
אֶל־הָעִ֨יר הַזֹּ֜את אֲשֶׁ֣ר ׀ אַתֶּ֣ם אֹמְרִ֗ים נִתְּנָה֙ בְּיַ֣ד מֶֽלֶךְ־בָּבֶ֔ל בַּחֶ֖רֶב וּבָרָעָ֥ב וּבַדָּֽבֶר
36 And now therefore, thus says Yahweh, the God of Israel,
against this city which you are saying, is given into the hand of king of Babel, by the sword and by famine and by pestilence.
3d 4B 16
30
הִנְנִ֤י מְקַבְּצָם֙ מִכָּל־הָ֣אֲרָצ֔וֹת אֲשֶׁ֨ר הִדַּחְתִּ֥ים שָׁ֛ם בְּאַפִּ֥י וּבַחֲמָתִ֖י וּבְקֶ֣צֶף גָּד֑וֹל
וַהֲשִֽׁבֹתִים֙ אֶל־הַמָּק֣וֹם הַזֶּ֔ה וְהֹשַׁבְתִּ֖ים לָבֶֽטַח
37 Note me well, collecting them from all the lands where I banished them in my anger and in my heat and great rage,
and I will return them again to this place, and I will settle them in trust.
3d 4C 30
18
וְהָ֥יוּ לִ֖י לְעָ֑ם
וַאֲנִ֕י אֶהְיֶ֥ה לָהֶ֖ם לֵאלֹהִֽים
38 And they will be my people,
and myself, I will become their God.
3e 4A 6
10
וְנָתַתִּ֨י לָהֶ֜ם לֵ֤ב אֶחָד֙ וְדֶ֣רֶךְ אֶחָ֔ד לְיִרְאָ֥ה אוֹתִ֖י כָּל־הַיָּמִ֑ים
לְט֣וֹב לָהֶ֔ם וְלִבְנֵיהֶ֖ם אַחֲרֵיהֶֽם
39 And I will give them one heart and one way to fear me every day,
for good for them, and their children after them.
3e 4C 23
12
וְכָרַתִּ֤י לָהֶם֙ בְּרִ֣ית עוֹלָ֔ם אֲשֶׁ֤ר לֹֽא־אָשׁוּב֙ מֵאַ֣חֲרֵיהֶ֔ם לְהֵיטִיבִ֖י אוֹתָ֑ם
וְאֶת־יִרְאָתִי֙ אֶתֵּ֣ן בִּלְבָבָ֔ם לְבִלְתִּ֖י ס֥וּר מֵעָלָֽי
40 And I will cut for them a covenant forever, that I will not turn away from them, that I may do them good.
And my fear I will give in their heart, that they not turn aside from me.
3e 4C 25
17
וְשַׂשְׂתִּ֥י עֲלֵיהֶ֖ם לְהֵטִ֣יב אוֹתָ֑ם
וּנְטַעְתִּ֞ים בָּאָ֤רֶץ הַזֹּאת֙ בֶּאֱמֶ֔ת בְּכָל־לִבִּ֖י וּבְכָל־נַפְשִֽׁי
41 And I will joy over them to do good to them,
and I will plant them in this land in truth, with all my heart and with all my being.
3e 4C 11
19
כִּֽי־כֹה֙ אָמַ֣ר יְהוָ֔ה כַּאֲשֶׁ֤ר הֵבֵ֙אתִי֙ אֶל־הָעָ֣ם הַזֶּ֔ה אֵ֛ת כָּל־הָרָעָ֥ה הַגְּדוֹלָ֖ה הַזֹּ֑את
כֵּ֣ן אָנֹכִ֞י מֵבִ֤יא עֲלֵיהֶם֙ אֶת־כָּל־הַטּוֹבָ֔ה אֲשֶׁ֥ר אָנֹכִ֖י דֹּבֵ֥ר עֲלֵיהֶֽם
42 Because thus says Yahweh, As I have brought to this people all this great evil,
so I will bring upon them all the good that I was speaking concerning them.
3d 4C 27
24
וְנִקְנָ֥ה הַשָּׂדֶ֖ה בָּאָ֣רֶץ הַזֹּ֑את
אֲשֶׁ֣ר ׀ אַתֶּ֣ם אֹמְרִ֗ים שְׁמָמָ֥ה הִיא֙ מֵאֵ֤ין אָדָם֙ וּבְהֵמָ֔ה נִתְּנָ֖ה בְּיַ֥ד הַכַּשְׂדִּֽים
43 And the field will be purchased in this land,
that you are saying, It is desolate, without human or beast, given into the hand of the Chaldeans.
3e 4C 11
24
שָׂד֞וֹת בַּכֶּ֣סֶף יִקְנ֗וּ וְכָת֨וֹב בַּסֵּ֥פֶר ׀ וְחָתוֹם֮ וְהָעֵ֣ד עֵדִים֒ בְּאֶ֨רֶץ בִּנְיָמִ֜ן וּבִסְבִיבֵ֣י יְרוּשָׁלִַ֗ם וּבְעָרֵ֤י יְהוּדָה֙ וּבְעָרֵ֣י הָהָ֔ר וּבְעָרֵ֥י הַשְּׁפֵלָ֖ה וּבְעָרֵ֣י הַנֶּ֑גֶב
כִּֽי־אָשִׁ֥יב אֶת־שְׁבוּתָ֖ם נְאֻם־יְהוָֽה
44 Fields with silver they will buy, and write in the record, and seal them, and will have witnesses witness in the land of Benjamin, and in the places surrounding Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah, and in the cities of the hill, and in the cities of the lowly places, and in the cities of the Negev,
for I will reverse their captivity. An oracle of Yahweh.
