Yirmiyahu - Jeremiah 45
1The word that Jeremiah the prophet spoke unto Baruch the son of Neriah, when he wrote these words in a book at the mouth of Jeremiah, in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, saying:
2‘Thus saith the Lord, the God of Israel, concerning thee, O Baruch: Thou didst say:
3Woe is me now!
For the Lord hath added sorrow to my pain; I am weary with my groaning, And I find no rest.
4Thus shalt thou say unto him:
Thus saith the Lord: Behold, that which I have built will I break down, And that which I have planted I will pluck up; And this in the whole land.
5And seekest thou great things for thyself? Seek them not;
for, behold, I will bring evil upon all flesh, saith the Lord; but thy life will I give unto thee for a prey in all places whither thou goest.’
