Jeremiah 11


11:1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,
11:2 Hear ye the words of this covenant, and speak to the men of
 Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem;
11:3 And say thou to them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel;
 Cursed [be] the man that obeyeth not the words of this
 covenant,
11:4 Which I commanded your fathers in the day [that] I brought
 them forth from the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace,
 saying, Obey my voice, and do them, according to all which I
 command you: so shall ye be my people, and I will be your God:
11:5 That I may perform the oath which I have sworn to your
 fathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey, as
 [it is] this day. Then answered I, and said, So be it, O LORD.
11:6 Then the LORD said to me, Proclaim all these words in the
 cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, saying, Hear
 ye the words of this covenant, and do them.
11:7 For I earnestly protested to your fathers in the day [that]
 I brought them out of the land of Egypt, [even] to this day,
 rising early and protesting, saying, Obey my voice.
11:8 Yet they obeyed not, nor inclined their ear, but walked
 every one in the imagination of their evil heart: therefore I
 will bring upon them all the words of this covenant, which I
 commanded [them] to do; but they did [them] not.
11:9 And the LORD said to me, A conspiracy is found among the
 men of Judah, and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
11:10 They have turned back to the iniquities of their
 forefathers, who refused to hear my words; and they went after
 other gods to serve them: the house of Israel and the house of
 Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers.
11:11 Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil
 upon them which they shall not be able to escape; and though
 they shall cry to me, I will not hearken to them.
11:12 Then shall the cities of Judah and inhabitants of
 Jerusalem go, and cry to the gods to which they offer incense:
 but they shall not save them at all in the time of their
 trouble.
11:13 For [according to] the number of thy cities were thy gods,
 O Judah; and [according to] the number of the streets of
 Jerusalem have ye set up altars to [that] shameful thing,
 [even] altars to burn incense to Baal.
11:14 Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a
 cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear [them] in the time
 when they cry to me for their trouble.
11:15 What hath my beloved to do in my house, [seeing] she hath
 wrought lewdness with many; and the holy flesh is passed from
 thee? when thou doest evil, then thou rejoicest.
11:16 The LORD called thy name, A green olive tree, fair, [and]
 of goodly fruit: with the noise of a great tumult he hath
 kindled fire upon it, and the branches of it are broken.
11:17 For the LORD of hosts, that planted thee, hath pronounced
 evil against thee, for the evil of the house of Israel and of
 the house of Judah, which they have done against themselves to
 provoke me to anger in offering incense to Baal.
11:18 And the LORD hath given me knowledge [of it], and I know
 [it]: then thou showedst me their doings.
11:19 But I [was] like a lamb [or] an ox [that] is brought to
 the slaughter; and I knew not that they had devised devices
 against me, [saying], Let us destroy the tree with its fruit,
 and let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his
 name may be no more remembered.
11:20 But, O LORD of hosts, that judgest righteously, that
 triest the reins and the heart, let me see thy vengeance on
 them: for to thee have I revealed my cause.
11:21 Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the men of
 Anathoth, that seek thy life, saying, Prophesy not in the name
 of the LORD, that thou die not by our hand:
11:22 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, I will
 punish them: the young men shall die by the sword; their sons
 and their daughters shall die by famine:
11:23 And there shall be no remnant of them: for I will bring
 evil upon the men of Anathoth, [even] the year of their
 visitation.
