JPS Tanakh 1917
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.’
