Jeremiah 18
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1The word that was upon Jeremiah from before LORD JEHOVAH saying: 2“Arise! Go down to the house of the Potter, and there I shall make you hear my words” 3And I went down to the house of the Potter, according to the word of LORD JEHOVAH, and, behold, he made a work on the Potter’s wheel 4And the vessel of clay that he had made was ruined in the hand of the Potter, and he returned and he made another vessel as he pleased

5And the word of LORD JEHOVAH was upon me, saying 6Can I not do with you, house of Israel, as this Potter, says LORD JEHOVAH? Behold, like clay in the hands of a potter, so are you in my hands, house of Israel 7If from the stillness I shall speak about a people and about a kingdom to uproot and to pull down and to overthrow and to destroy 8And that people will return from its evil, I shall turn back from it the evil that I thought to do to it 9And if I will speak about a people and about a kingdom, to build and to plant 10And it will do what is evil before me, and it will not hear my voice, I will turn from it the good that I spoke to do to it 11And now, say to the men of Judea and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem: “Thus says LORD JEHOVAH: behold, I create evil against you and I devise ideas against you. Return and be converted, each man from his evil way, and make your ways and your works good” 12And those said: “We will be strong, and we will go after our thoughts, and we shall do, each man, the pleasures of his evil heart!”

13Because of this, thus says LORD JEHOVAH: “Ask among the nations, ‘Who has done according to these things?’ The virgin of Israel has done great madness!

14If the snow departs from The Mount of Breasts and from Lebanon, and if foreign cold waters that flow are withheld

15Because my people have forsaken me, and they offered incense to nothingness, and are subverted in their ways, in the ancient paths, to go in paths, in a way that was not trodden

16To make their land a horror and for hissing to eternity, and everyone who will pass by it shall be astonished and shall shake his head

17Like the hot wind, I shall scatter them before the enemies. I shall show them the back and not the face in the day of their distress

18And they said: “Come, we will devise ideas against Jeremiah, that the Law will not be destroyed from the Priests, and intelligence from the wise, and the word of the Prophets! Come, we will strike him in his language, and we will not pay attention to any of his words!”

19Pay attention to me, LORD JEHOVAH, and hear the cry of my defrauding!

20Evil has been paid in exchange for good, for they have dug a ditch for my soul! Remember that I have risen before you, and I have spoken good about them, to turn away your anger from them!

21Because of this, give their children to starvation, and deliver them to the hand of the sword. Their wives shall be bereaved and become widows, and their mighty men shall be slain by death, and their young men slain by the sword in war!

22Wailing shall be heard from their houses, when you shall bring forth upon them a band of robbers from the stillness, because they have dug a ditch for my soul to seize me, and snares they have hid for my feet

23And you, LORD JEHOVAH, you know all that they have plotted against me for death. Do not atone for their evil, and do not blot out their sins from before you. Let them be cast out before you, and at the time of your wrath, do so to them
