Jeremiah 29:27-29 International Standard Version (ISV)

27 And now, why didn’t you rebuke Jeremiah from Anathoth who prophesies to you? 28 So he sent a message[a] to us in Babylon: ‘The exile[b] will be long, so build houses and live in them.[c] Plant gardens and eat their produce.’”’”

29 Then Zephaniah the priest read this letter to Jeremiah the prophet,


  1. Jeremiah 29:28 The Heb. lacks a message
  2. Jeremiah 29:28 Lit. It
  3. Jeremiah 29:28 The Heb. lacks in them
