Jeremiah 25
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1The word that was upon Jeremiah about all the people of Judea in the year fourth of Yoiqim, son of Yoshiah, King of Judea; this is the first year of Nebukadnetsar, King of Babel 2For Jeremiah the Prophet spoke to all the people of Judea and to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying: 3“From the thirteenth year of Yoshiah, son of Amon, King of Judea, and unto this day, behold, twenty and three years, the word of LORD JEHOVAH was upon me, and I spoke to you; I arose early every day and I have spoken and you have not listened 4And LORD JEHOVAH sent to you all his Servants the Prophets. He arose early and he sent and you did not listen, and you did not incline your ears to hear 5And he was saying: ‘Turn to God, each man from his evil way, and from the evil of your works, and dwell in the land that LORD JEHOVAH gave to you and to your fathers, from eternity and unto eternity 6And you shall not go after other gods to work for them and to worship them, and you shall not anger me by the work of your hands, that I would not do harm to you 7And you have not listened to me, says LORD JEHOVAH, and you have angered me by the work of your hands that we may do harm to you’”

8Because of this, thus says LORD JEHOVAH of hosts, because you have not heard my words 9Behold, I send and I lead all families of the kingdom of the north, says LORD JEHOVAH, and Nebukadnetsar, King of Babel my Servant, and I shall bring them against this land and against its inhabitants, and against these nations in its surroundings, and I shall destroy them, and I shall make them a horror and a hissing and a desolation for eternity 10And I shall destroy from them the sound of dancing and the sound of joy, the voice of the groom and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstone and the light of a lamp 11And all this land shall be for a wilderness and for an astonishment, and these nations shall serve the King of Babel seventy years

12And whenever he has finished seventy years, I shall adjudicate against the King of Babel and against his people their crimes, says LORD JEHOVAH, and against the land of the Chaldeans, and I shall make it a horror to eternity 13And I shall bring on this land all the words that I spoke over it, everything that is written in this book that Jeremiah prophesied over all the nations 14Because many nations shall subject them also to them, and great Kings, and I shall pay them according to their deeds and according to the work of their hands

15Because thus says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts God of Israel: “Take the cup of wine of this anger from my hands, and I shall give it to all nations to drink, those to whom I send you 16They shall drink and they shall be confused and shall be disturbed from before the sword that I send among them

17And I took the cup from the hand of LORD JEHOVAH and I made all the nations drink, for LORD JEHOVAH has sent me unto them 18To Jerusalem, also to the villages of Judea and to its Kings and to its Princes, to make them a wilderness and for an astonishment and for hissing until today 19To Pharaoh King of Egypt and to all his Servants and to his Princes and to all his people 20And to all his borders and to all Kings of Utz and to all Kings of the land of the Philistines, and to Ashqeloon and to Azza and to Aqroon and to the remnant of Ashdood 21And to Edum and to Moab and to the children of Ammon 22And to all Kings of Tsur and to all Kings of Tsidon and to Kings of the islands that are at the crossing of the Sea 23And to Daran and to Timna and to Buuz and to all who cut the beards 24And to all Kings who border each other and to all Kings of Arabia dwelling in the desert 25And to all Kings of Zemran and to all Kings of Ilaam and to all Kings of Media 26And to all Kings of the north who are far off and who are near, each man to his neighbor, and to all these kingdoms that are on the face of all the Earth, and the King of Arsacia will drink after them

27And say to them: “Thus says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts, God of Israel: drink and be drunk and be disturbed and fall, and you shall not rise from before the sword that I send among you 28And if they will not choose to take the cup from your hand to drink, say to them: ‘Thus says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts, God of Israel, “Drinking, you shall drink 29Because, behold, the city on which my name is called, I begin to do evil to it, and shall you surely be innocent? You shall not be innocent, because I called for the sword on all the inhabitants of the land, says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts

30And you shall prophesy over them all these words, and you shall say to them: “LORD JEHOVAH shall roar from the high place, and from the dwelling of his holiness he will give his voice. Roaring, he shall roar against his sheepfold: ‘Hurrah! Hurrah!’, as one treading a wine press, he shall shout over all the inhabitants of Earth

31A rushing sound arrived unto the ends of the Earth, because LORD JEHOVAH judges with the nations; he judges everybody, and I shall hand over the wicked to the sword, says LORD JEHOVAH

32So says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts, God of Israel: “Behold, evil shall come forth from nation to nation and a great hurricane shall move from the ends of the Earth

33And in that day the slain of LORD JEHOVAH shall be from the ends of the Earth unto the ends of the Earth. They shall not howl and they shall not mourn and they shall not weep for them, and they shall not be gathered and they shall not be buried, but they shall be like a dung heap on the face of the Earth

34Wail shepherds, and cry out and wallow in the dust, strong ones of the sheep, because your days for slaughter are fulfilled, and you shall be broken, and you shall fall like desirable vessels

35And the place of escape of the Shepherds shall be cut off, and the escape of the rams of the sheep

36The voice of the shout of Shepherds and the bleating of the rams of the sheep, for LORD JEHOVAH has plundered their flocks!

37And the camps of peace are destroyed from before the heat of the wrath of LORD JEHOVAH

38Because he has left his flock as a lion that has left his den, because their land became a wilderness from the presence of his anger of LORD JEHOVAH, and from the presence of the heat of his wrath
