Word to Baruch

45 This is the message which Jeremiah the prophet spoke to (A)Baruch the son of Neriah, when he had (B)written down these words in a book [a]at Jeremiah’s dictation, in the (C)fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, saying: “Thus says Yahweh the God of Israel to you, O Baruch: ‘You said, “Ah, woe is me! For Yahweh has added sorrow to my pain; I am (D)weary with my sighing and have found no rest.”’ Thus you are to say to him, ‘Thus says Yahweh, “Behold, (E)what I have built I am about to pull down, and what I have planted I am about to uproot, that is, the whole land.” But as for you, are you (F)seeking great things for yourself? Do not seek them; for behold, I am going to (G)bring calamity on all flesh,’ declares Yahweh, ‘but I will (H)give your life to you as spoil in all the places where you may go.’”
