Jeremiah 22:1-5 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised (NRSVA)

Exhortation to Repent

22 Thus says the Lord: Go down to the house of the king of Judah, and speak there this word, and say: Hear the word of the Lord, O King of Judah sitting on the throne of David—you, and your servants, and your people who enter these gates. Thus says the Lord: Act with justice and righteousness, and deliver from the hand of the oppressor anyone who has been robbed. And do no wrong or violence to the alien, the orphan, and the widow, nor shed innocent blood in this place. For if you will indeed obey this word, then through the gates of this house shall enter kings who sit on the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, they, and their servants, and their people. But if you will not heed these words, I swear by myself, says the Lord, that this house shall become a desolation.

Jeremiah 22:13-19 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised (NRSVA)

13 Woe to him who builds his house by unrighteousness,
    and his upper rooms by injustice;
who makes his neighbours work for nothing,
    and does not give them their wages;
14 who says, ‘I will build myself a spacious house
    with large upper rooms’,
and who cuts out windows for it,
    panelling it with cedar,
    and painting it with vermilion.
15 Are you a king
    because you compete in cedar?
Did not your father eat and drink
    and do justice and righteousness?
    Then it was well with him.
16 He judged the cause of the poor and needy;
    then it was well.
Is not this to know me?
    says the Lord.
17 But your eyes and heart
    are only on your dishonest gain,
for shedding innocent blood,
    and for practising oppression and violence.

18 Therefore thus says the Lord concerning King Jehoiakim son of Josiah of Judah:

They shall not lament for him, saying,
    ‘Alas, my brother!’ or ‘Alas, sister!’
They shall not lament for him, saying,
    ‘Alas, lord!’ or ‘Alas, his majesty!’
19 With the burial of a donkey he shall be buried—
    dragged off and thrown out beyond the gates of Jerusalem.
