Jeremiah 15


15:1 Then said the LORD to me, Though Moses and Samuel stood
 before me, [yet] my mind [could] not [be] towards this people:
 cast [them] out of my sight, and let them go forth.
15:2 And it shall come to pass, if they say to thee, Whither
 shall we go forth? then thou shalt tell them, Thus saith the
 LORD; Such as [are] for death, to death; and such as [are] for
 the sword, to the sword; and such as [are] for the famine, to
 the famine; and such as [are] for the captivity, to the
 captivity.
15:3 And I will appoint over them four kinds, saith the LORD:
 the sword to slay, and the dogs to tear, and the fowls of the
 heaven, and the beasts of the earth, to devour and destroy.
15:4 And I will cause them to be removed into all kingdoms of
 the earth, because of Manasseh the son of Hezekiah king of
 Judah, for [that] which he did in Jerusalem.
15:5 For who shall have pity upon thee, O Jerusalem? or who
 shall bemoan thee? or who shall go aside to ask concerning thy
 welfare?
15:6 Thou hast forsaken me, saith the LORD, thou art gone
 backward: therefore will I stretch out my hand against thee,
 and destroy thee; I am weary with repenting.
15:7 And I will fan them with a fan in the gates of the land; I
 will bereave [them] of children, I will destroy my people,
 [since] they return not from their ways.
15:8 Their widows are multiplied to me above the sand of the
 seas: I have brought upon them against the mother of the young
 men a spoiler at noon-day: I have caused [him] to fall upon it
 suddenly, and terrors upon the city.
15:9 She that hath borne seven languisheth: she hath resigned
 her breath; her sun is gone down while [it was] yet day: she
 hath been ashamed and confounded: and the residue of them will
 I deliver to the sword before their enemies, saith the LORD.
15:10 Woe is me, my mother, that thou hast borne me a man of
 strife and a man of contention to the whole earth! I have
 neither lent on usury, nor have men lent to me on usury; [yet]
 every one of them doth curse me.
15:11 The LORD said, Verily it shall be well with thy remnant;
 verily I will cause the enemy to treat thee [well] in the time
 of evil and in the time of affliction.
15:12 Shall iron break the northern iron and the steel?
15:13 Thy substance and thy treasures will I give to the spoil
 without price, and [that] for all thy sins, even in all thy
 borders.
15:14 And I will make [thee] to pass with thy enemies into a
 land [which] thou knowest not: for a fire is kindled in my
 anger, [which] shall burn upon you.
15:15 O LORD, thou knowest: remember me, and visit me, and
 avenge me of my persecutors; take me not away in thy
 long-suffering: know that for thy sake I have suffered rebuke.
15:16 Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was
 to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart: for I am called by thy
 name, O LORD God of hosts.
15:17 I sat not in the assembly of the mockers, nor rejoiced; I
 sat alone because of thy hand: for thou hast filled me with
 indignation.
15:18 Why is my pain perpetual, and my wound incurable, [which]
 refuseth to be healed? wilt thou be altogether to me as a liar,
 [and as] waters [that] fail?
15:19 Therefore thus saith the LORD, If thou shalt return, then
 will I bring thee again, [and] thou shalt stand before me: and
 if thou shalt separate the precious from the vile, thou shalt
 be as my mouth: let them return to thee; but return not thou to
 them.
15:20 And I will make thee to this people a fortified brazen
 wall: and they shall fight against thee, but they shall not
 prevail against thee: for I [am] with thee to save thee and to
 deliver thee, saith the LORD.
15:21 And I will deliver thee from the hand of the wicked, and I
 will redeem thee from the hand of the terrible.
