Jeremiah 45
New American Bible Revised Edition

A Message to Baruch.* 1The word that Jeremiah the prophet spoke to Baruch, son of Neriah, when he wrote on a scroll words from Jeremiah’s own mouth in the fourth year of Jehoiakim, son of Josiah, king of Judah:a 2Thus says the Lord, God of Israel, to you, Baruch. 3You said, “Woe is me! the Lord has added grief to my pain.b I have worn myself out with groaning; rest eludes me.” 4You must say this to him. Thus says the Lord: What I have built, I am tearing down; what I have planted, I am uprooting: all this land.c 5And you, do you seek great things for yourself? Do not seek them! I am bringing evil on all flesh—oracle of the Lord—but I will grant you your life as spoils of war, wherever you may go.d
