Hananiah’s False Prophecy

28 In that same year, at the beginning of the reign of King Zedekiah of Judah,(A) in the fifth month of the fourth year, the prophet Hananiah son of Azzur from Gibeon(B) said to me in the temple of the Lord in the presence of the priests and all the people, “This is what the Lord of Armies, the God of Israel, says: ‘I have broken the yoke of the king of Babylon.(C) Within two years I will restore to this place all the articles of the Lord’s temple(D) that King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon took from here and transported to Babylon. And I will restore to this place Jeconiah[a] son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, and all the exiles from Judah(E) who went to Babylon’—this is the Lord’s declaration—‘for I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon.’”

Jeremiah’s Response to Hananiah

The prophet Jeremiah replied to the prophet Hananiah in the presence of the priests and all the people who were standing in the temple of the Lord. The prophet Jeremiah said, “Amen!(F) May the Lord do that. May the Lord make the words you have prophesied come true and may he restore the articles of the Lord’s temple and all the exiles from Babylon to this place! Only listen to this message I am speaking in your hearing and in the hearing of all the people. The prophets who preceded you and me from ancient times prophesied war, disaster,[b] and plague against many lands and great kingdoms. As for the prophet who prophesies peace—only when the word of the prophet comes true will the prophet be recognized as one the Lord has truly sent.”(G)

Hananiah Breaks Jeremiah’s Yoke

10 The prophet Hananiah then took the yoke bar from the neck of the prophet Jeremiah and broke it.(H) 11 In the presence of all the people Hananiah proclaimed, “This is what the Lord says: ‘In this way, within two years I will break the yoke of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon from the neck of all the nations.’” The prophet Jeremiah then went on his way.

The Lord’s Word against Hananiah

12 After the prophet Hananiah had broken the yoke bar from the neck of the prophet Jeremiah, the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah: 13 “Go say to Hananiah, ‘This is what the Lord says: You broke a wooden yoke bar, but in its place you will make an iron yoke bar. 14 For this is what the Lord of Armies, the God of Israel, says: I have put an iron yoke on the neck of all these nations that they might serve King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon,(I) and they will serve him.(J) I have even put the wild animals under him.’”(K)

15 The prophet Jeremiah said to the prophet Hananiah, “Listen, Hananiah! The Lord did not send you, but you have led these people to trust in a lie.(L) 16 Therefore, this is what the Lord says: ‘I am about to send you off the face of the earth. You will die this year because you have preached rebellion against the Lord.’”(M) 17 And the prophet Hananiah died that year in the seventh month.

Jeremiah’s Letter to the Exiles

29 This is the text of the letter(N) that the prophet Jeremiah sent from Jerusalem to the remaining exiled elders, the priests, the prophets, and all the people Nebuchadnezzar(O) had deported from Jerusalem to Babylon. This was after King Jeconiah,[c](P) the queen mother, the court officials, the officials of Judah and Jerusalem, the craftsmen, and the metalsmiths had left Jerusalem. He sent the letter with Elasah son of Shaphan and Gemariah son of Hilkiah,(Q) whom Zedekiah king of Judah sent to Babylon to King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. The letter stated:

This is what the Lord of Armies, the God of Israel, says to all the exiles I deported from Jerusalem to Babylon: “Build houses and live in them.(R) Plant gardens and eat their produce. Find wives for yourselves, and have sons and daughters. Find wives for your sons and give your daughters to men in marriage so that they may bear sons and daughters. Multiply there; do not decrease.(S) Pursue the well-being[d] of the city I have deported you to. Pray to the Lord on its behalf,(T) for when it thrives, you will thrive.”

For this is what the Lord of Armies, the God of Israel, says: “Don’t let your prophets who are among you(U) and your diviners deceive you,(V) and don’t listen to the dreams you elicit from them, for they are prophesying falsely to you in my name. I have not sent them.”(W) This is the Lord’s declaration.

10 For this is what the Lord says: “When seventy years for Babylon are complete,(X) I will attend to you and will confirm my promise concerning you to restore you to this place. 11 For I know the plans I have for you”(Y)—this is the Lord’s declaration—“plans for your well-being, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. 12 You will call to me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.(Z) 13 You will seek me(AA) and find me when you search for me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you”—this is the Lord’s declaration—“and I will restore your fortunes[e](AB) and gather you from all the nations and places where I banished you”—this is the Lord’s declaration. “I will restore you to the place from which I deported you.”(AC)

15 You have said, “The Lord has raised up prophets for us in Babylon!” 16 But this is what the Lord says concerning the king sitting on David’s throne(AD) and concerning all the people living in this city—that is, concerning your brothers who did not go with you into exile. 17 This is what the Lord of Armies says: “I am about to send sword, famine, and plague against them,(AE) and I will make them like rotten figs that are inedible because they are so bad. 18 I will pursue them with sword, famine, and plague. I will make them a horror to all the kingdoms of the earth—a curse and a desolation, an object of scorn and a disgrace among all the nations(AF) where I have banished them.(AG) 19 I will do this because they have not listened to my words”—this is the Lord’s declaration—“the words that I sent to them with my servants the prophets time and time again.[f](AH) And you too have not listened.” This is the Lord’s declaration.

20 Hear the word of the Lord, all you exiles I have sent from Jerusalem to Babylon.(AI) 21 This is what the Lord of Armies, the God of Israel, says about Ahab son of Kolaiah and concerning Zedekiah son of Maaseiah, the ones prophesying a lie to you in my name:(AJ) “I am about to hand them over to King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, and he will kill them before your very eyes. 22 Based on what happens to them, all the exiles of Judah who are in Babylon will create a curse(AK) that says, ‘May the Lord make you like Zedekiah and Ahab, whom the king of Babylon roasted in the fire!’ (AL) 23 because they have committed an outrage(AM) in Israel by committing adultery with their neighbors’ wives and have spoken in my name a lie, which I did not command them. I am he who knows, and I am a witness.” This is the Lord’s declaration.

24 To Shemaiah the Nehelamite you are to say, 25 “This is what the Lord of Armies, the God of Israel, says: You[g] in your own name have sent out letters to all the people of Jerusalem, to the priest Zephaniah(AN) son of Maaseiah, and to all the priests, saying, 26 ‘The Lord has appointed you priest in place of the priest Jehoiada to be the chief officer(AO) in the temple of the Lord, responsible for every madman(AP) who acts like a prophet. You must confine him in the stocks(AQ) and an iron collar. 27 So now, why have you not rebuked Jeremiah of Anathoth who has been acting like a prophet among you?(AR) 28 For he has sent word to us in Babylon, claiming, “The exile will be long. Build houses and settle down. Plant gardens and eat their produce.”’” (AS)

29 The priest Zephaniah read this letter in the hearing of the prophet Jeremiah.

A Message about Shemaiah

30 Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah: 31 “Send a message to all the exiles, saying, ‘This is what the Lord says concerning Shemaiah the Nehelamite. Because Shemaiah prophesied to you, though I did not send him, and made you trust a lie,(AT) 32 this is what the Lord says: I am about to punish Shemaiah the Nehelamite and his descendants. There will not be even one of his descendants living among these people,(AU) nor will any ever see the good that I will bring to my people—this is the Lord’s declaration—for he has preached rebellion against the Lord.’”(AV)

Restoration from Captivity

30 This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord. “This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: Write on a scroll all the words that I have spoken to you,(AW) for look, the days are coming”—this is the Lord’s declaration—“when I will restore the fortunes[h] of my people Israel and Judah,”(AX) says the Lord. “I will restore them to the land I gave to their ancestors and they will possess it.”

These are the words the Lord spoke to Israel and Judah. This is what the Lord says:

We have heard a cry of terror,
of dread—there is no peace.
Ask and see
whether a male can give birth.
Why then do I see every man
with his hands on his stomach like a woman in labor
and every face turned pale?(AY)
How awful that day will be!(AZ)
There will be no other like it!(BA)
It will be a time of trouble for Jacob,
but he will be saved out of it.
On that day—
this is the declaration of the Lord of Armies—
I will break his yoke from your neck(BB)
and tear off your chains,(BC)
and strangers will never again enslave him.(BD)
They will serve the Lord their God
and David their king,
whom I will raise up for them.(BE)
10 As for you, my servant Jacob,(BF)
do not be afraid—
this is the Lord’s declaration—
and do not be discouraged, Israel,
for without fail I will save you out of a distant place,
your descendants, from the land of their captivity!
Jacob will return and have calm and quiet
with no one to frighten him.(BG)
11 For I will be with you—
this is the Lord’s declaration—
to save you!(BH)
I will bring destruction on all the nations
where I have scattered you;
however, I will not bring destruction on you.
I will discipline you justly,
and I will by no means leave you unpunished.(BI)

Healing Zion’s Wounds

12 For this is what the Lord says:

Your injury is incurable;
your wound most severe.(BJ)
13 You have no defender for your case.(BK)
There is no remedy for your sores,
and no healing for you.[i]
14 All your lovers have forgotten you;(BL)
they no longer look for you,
for I have struck you as an enemy would,
with the discipline(BM) of someone cruel,(BN)
because of your enormous guilt
and your innumerable sins.
15 Why do you cry out about your injury?
Your pain has no cure!
I have done these things to you
because of your enormous guilt
and your innumerable sins.(BO)
16 Nevertheless, all who devoured you will be devoured,(BP)
and all your adversaries—all of them—
will go off into exile.
Those who plunder you will be plundered,
and all who raid you will be raided.(BQ)
17 But I will bring you health(BR)
and will heal you of your wounds—
this is the Lord’s declaration—
for they call you Outcast,
Zion whom no one cares about.

Restoration of the Land

18 This is what the Lord says:

I will certainly restore the fortunes[j] of Jacob’s tents(BS)
and show compassion(BT) on his dwellings.
Every city will be rebuilt on its mound;
every citadel will stand on its proper site.
19 Thanksgiving will come out of them,
a sound of rejoicing.
I will multiply them, and they will not decrease;(BU)
I will honor them, and they will not be insignificant.
20 His children will be as in past days;
his congregation will be established in my presence.
I will punish all his oppressors.(BV)
21 Jacob’s leader will be one of them;
his ruler will issue from him.
I will invite him to me, and he will approach me,(BW)
for who would otherwise risk his life to approach me?
This is the Lord’s declaration.
22 You will be my people,
and I will be your God.(BX)

The Wrath of God

23 Look, a storm from the Lord!(BY)
Wrath has gone out,
a churning storm.
It will whirl about the heads of the wicked.
24 The Lord’s burning anger will not turn back
until he has completely fulfilled the purposes of his heart.
In time to come you will understand it.(BZ)

God’s Relationship with His People

31 “At that time”—this is the Lord’s declaration—“I will be the God of all the families of Israel,(CA) and they will be my people.”

This is what the Lord says:

The people who survived the sword
found favor in the wilderness.(CB)
When Israel went to find rest,(CC)
the Lord appeared to him[k] from far away.
I have loved you with an everlasting love;(CD)
therefore, I have continued to extend faithful love to you.(CE)
Again I will build you so that you will be rebuilt,
Virgin Israel.(CF)
You will take up your tambourines again(CG)
and go out in joyful dancing.
You will plant vineyards again(CH)
on the mountains of Samaria;
the planters will plant and will enjoy the fruit.(CI)
For there will be a day when watchmen will call out
in the hill country of Ephraim,
“Come, let’s go up to Zion,(CJ)
to the Lord our God!”

God’s People Brought Home

For this is what the Lord says:

Sing with joy for Jacob;
shout for the foremost of the nations!
Proclaim, praise, and say,
Lord, save your people,(CK)
the remnant of Israel!” (CL)
Watch! I am going to bring them from the northern land.
I will gather them from remote regions of the earth(CM)
the blind and the lame will be with them,(CN)
along with those who are pregnant and those about to give birth.
They will return here as a great assembly!(CO)
They will come weeping,
but I will bring them back with consolation.[l](CP)
I will lead them to wadis filled with water,
by a smooth way where they will not stumble,(CQ)
for I am Israel’s Father,
and Ephraim is my firstborn.(CR)
10 Nations, hear the word of the Lord,
and tell it among the far off coasts and islands!(CS)
Say, “The one who scattered Israel will gather him.(CT)
He will watch over him as a shepherd guards his flock,
11 for the Lord has ransomed Jacob
and redeemed him from the power of one stronger than he.”(CU)
12 They will come and shout for joy on the heights of Zion;(CV)
they will be radiant with joy(CW)
because of the Lord’s goodness,
because of the grain, the new wine, the fresh oil,(CX)
and because of the young of the flocks and herds.
Their life will be like an irrigated garden,
and they will no longer grow weak from hunger.
13 Then the young women will rejoice with dancing,
while young and old men rejoice together.
I will turn their mourning into joy,(CY)
give them consolation,
and bring happiness out of grief.
14 I will refresh the priests with an abundance,[m](CZ)
and my people will be satisfied with my goodness.
This is the Lord’s declaration.

Lament Turned to Joy

15 This is what the Lord says:

A voice was heard in Ramah,(DA)
a lament with bitter weeping—
Rachel weeping for her children,
refusing to be comforted for her children
because they are no more.(DB)

16 This is what the Lord says:

Keep your voice from weeping
and your eyes from tears,
for the reward for your work will come—
this is the Lord’s declaration—
and your children will return from the enemy’s land.
17 There is hope for your future(DC)
this is the Lord’s declaration—
and your children will return to their own territory.
18 I have surely heard Ephraim moaning,
“You disciplined me, and I have been disciplined
like an untrained calf.(DD)
Take me back, so that I can return,
for you, Lord, are my God.(DE)
19 After my return, I felt regret;
After I was instructed, I struck my thigh in grief.(DF)
I was ashamed and humiliated(DG)
because I bore the disgrace of my youth.”
20 Isn’t Ephraim a precious son to me,
a delightful child?(DH)
Whenever I speak against him,
I certainly still think about him.
Therefore, my inner being yearns for him;
I will truly have compassion on him.(DI)
This is the Lord’s declaration.

Repentance and Restoration

21 Set up road markers(DJ) for yourself;
establish signposts!
Keep the highway in mind,
the way you have traveled.
Return, Virgin Israel!
Return to these cities of yours.
22 How long will you turn here and there,
faithless daughter?(DK)
For the Lord creates something new in the land[n]
a female[o] will shelter[p] a man.

23 This is what the Lord of Armies, the God of Israel, says: “When I restore their fortunes,[q] they will once again speak this word in the land of Judah and in its cities: ‘May the Lord bless you, righteous settlement,(DL) holy mountain.’(DM) 24 Judah and all its cities will live in it together—also farmers and those who move[r] with the flocks— 25 for I satisfy the thirsty person and feed all those who are weak.”(DN)

26 At this I awoke and looked around. My sleep had been most pleasant to me.

27 “Look, the days are coming”—this is the Lord’s declaration—“when I will sow the house of Israel(DO) and the house of Judah with the seed of people and the seed of animals. 28 Just as I watched over them to uproot and to tear them down, to demolish and to destroy, and to cause disaster,(DP) so will I watch over them to build and to plant them”(DQ)—this is the Lord’s declaration. 29 “In those days, it will never again be said,

‘The fathers have eaten sour grapes,
and the children’s teeth are set on edge.’(DR)

30 Rather, each will die for his own iniquity.(DS) Anyone who eats sour grapes—his own teeth will be set on edge.

The New Covenant

31 “Look, the days are coming”(DT)—this is the Lord’s declaration—“when I will make a new covenant(DU) with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. 32 This one will not be like the covenant I made with their ancestors on the day I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt—my covenant that they broke even though I am their master”[s](DV)—the Lord’s declaration. 33 “Instead, this is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after those days”—the Lord’s declaration. “I will put my teaching within them and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. 34 No longer will one teach his neighbor or his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’(DW) for they will all know me, from the least to the greatest of them”(DX)—this is the Lord’s declaration. “For I will forgive their iniquity(DY) and never again remember their sin.

35 “This is what the Lord says:

The one who gives the sun for light by day,
the fixed order of moon and stars for light by night,
who stirs up the sea and makes its waves roar(DZ)
the Lord of Armies is his name:
36 If this fixed order departs from before me—
this is the Lord’s declaration—
only then will Israel’s descendants cease
to be a nation before me forever.(EA)

37 “This is what the Lord says:

Only if the heavens above can be measured
and the foundations of the earth below explored,
will I reject all of Israel’s descendants
because of all they have done—
this is the Lord’s declaration.

38 “Look, the days are coming”—the Lord’s declaration—“when the city[t] from the Tower of Hananel(EB) to the Corner Gate(EC) will be rebuilt for the Lord. 39 A measuring line will once again stretch out straight to the hill of Gareb(ED) and then turn toward Goah. 40 The whole valley—the corpses, the ashes, and all the fields as far as the Kidron Valley(EE) to the corner of the Horse Gate(EF) to the east—will be holy to the Lord. It will never be uprooted or demolished again.”

Jeremiah’s Land Purchase

32 This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord in the tenth year of King Zedekiah(EG) of Judah, which was the eighteenth year of Nebuchadnezzar.(EH) At that time, the army of the king of Babylon was besieging Jerusalem,(EI) and the prophet Jeremiah was imprisoned in the guard’s courtyard(EJ) in the palace of the king of Judah. King Zedekiah of Judah had imprisoned him, saying, “Why are you prophesying as you do? You say, ‘This is what the Lord says: Look, I am about to hand this city over to Babylon’s king, and he will capture it. King Zedekiah of Judah will not escape from the Chaldeans; indeed, he will certainly be handed over to Babylon’s king. They will speak face to face[u] and meet eye to eye.(EK) He will take Zedekiah to Babylon, where he will stay until I attend to him—this is the Lord’s declaration. For you will fight the Chaldeans, but you will not succeed.’”(EL)

Jeremiah replied, “The word of the Lord came to me: Watch! Hanamel, the son of your uncle Shallum, is coming to you to say, ‘Buy my field in Anathoth(EM) for yourself, for you own the right of redemption(EN) to buy it.’

“Then, as the Lord had said, my cousin Hanamel came to the guard’s courtyard and urged me, ‘Please buy my field in Anathoth in the land of Benjamin, for you own the right of inheritance and redemption. Buy it for yourself.’ Then I knew that this was the word of the Lord. So I bought the field in Anathoth from my cousin Hanamel, and I weighed out the silver to him(EO)—seventeen shekels[v] of silver. 10 I recorded it on a scroll,(EP) sealed it, called in witnesses, and weighed out the silver on the scales. 11 I took the purchase agreement—the sealed copy with its terms and conditions and the open copy— 12 and gave the purchase agreement to Baruch(EQ) son of Neriah, son of Mahseiah. I did this in the sight of my cousin[w] Hanamel, the witnesses who had signed the purchase agreement, and all the Judeans sitting in the guard’s courtyard.

13 “I charged Baruch in their sight, 14 ‘This is what the Lord of Armies, the God of Israel, says: Take these scrolls—this purchase agreement with the sealed copy and this open copy—and put them in an earthen storage jar so they will last a long time. 15 For this is what the Lord of Armies, the God of Israel, says: Houses, fields, and vineyards will again be bought in this land.’(ER)

16 “After I had given the purchase agreement to Baruch, son of Neriah, I prayed to the Lord:(ES) 17 Oh, Lord God! You yourself made the heavens and earth(ET) by your great power(EU) and with your outstretched arm. Nothing is too difficult for you!(EV) 18 You show faithful love to thousands but lay the fathers’ iniquity on their sons’ laps after them,(EW) great and mighty God(EX) whose name is the Lord of Armies, 19 the one great in counsel and powerful in action. Your eyes are on all the ways of the children of men[x] in order to reward each person according to his ways and as the result of his actions.(EY) 20 You performed signs and wonders in the land of Egypt(EZ) and still do today, both in Israel and among all mankind. You made a name(FA) for yourself, as is the case today. 21 You brought your people Israel out of Egypt with signs and wonders, with a strong hand and an outstretched arm, and with great terror.(FB) 22 You gave them this land you swore to give to their ancestors, a land flowing with milk and honey.(FC) 23 They entered and possessed it, but they did not obey you or live according to your instructions.(FD) They failed to perform all you commanded them to do,(FE) and so you have brought all this disaster on them. 24 Look! Siege ramps(FF) have come against the city to capture it, and the city, as a result of the sword, famine, and plague, has been handed over to the Chaldeans who are fighting against it. What you have spoken has happened. Look, you can see it! 25 Yet you, Lord God, have said to me, ‘Purchase the field and call in witnesses’—even though the city has been handed over to the Chaldeans!”

26 The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah: 27 “Look, I am the Lord, the God over every creature.(FG) Is anything too difficult for me?(FH) 28 Therefore, this is what the Lord says: I am about to hand this city over to the Chaldeans,(FI) to Babylon’s king Nebuchadnezzar, and he will capture it. 29 The Chaldeans who are fighting against this city will come and set this city on fire. They will burn it, including the houses where incense has been burned to Baal on their rooftops and where drink offerings have been poured out to other gods to anger me.(FJ) 30 From their youth, the Israelites and Judeans have done nothing but what is evil in my sight! They have done nothing but anger me by the work of their hands”(FK)—this is the Lord’s declaration— 31 “for this city has caused my wrath and fury from the day it was built until now. I will therefore remove it from my presence(FL) 32 because of all the evil the Israelites and Judeans have done to anger me—they, their kings,(FM) their officials, their priests, and their prophets, the men of Judah, and the residents of Jerusalem. 33 They have turned their backs to me and not their faces.(FN) Though I taught them time and time again,[y](FO) they do not listen and receive discipline. 34 They have placed their abhorrent things(FP) in the house that bears my name and have defiled it. 35 They have built the high places of Baal in Ben Hinnom Valley to sacrifice their sons and daughters in the fire[z] to Molech(FQ)—something I had not commanded them. I had never entertained the thought[aa] that they do this detestable act causing Judah to sin!

36 “Now therefore, this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says to this city about which you said, ‘It has been handed over to Babylon’s king through sword, famine, and plague’: 37 I will certainly gather them from all the lands where I have banished them in my anger, fury, and intense wrath, and I will return them to this place and make them live in safety.(FR) 38 They will be my people, and I will be their God.(FS) 39 I will give them integrity of heart(FT) and action[ab] so that they will fear me always, for their good and for the good of their descendants after them.

40 “I will make a permanent covenant with them:(FU) I will never turn away from doing good to them, and I will put fear of me in their hearts so they will never again turn away from me.(FV) 41 I will take delight in them to do what is good for them, and with all my heart and mind I will faithfully plant them in this land.(FW)

42 “For this is what the Lord says: Just as I have brought all this terrible disaster on these people,(FX) so am I about to bring on them all the good I am promising them. 43 Fields will be bought in this land about which you are saying,(FY) ‘It’s a desolation(FZ) without people or animals; it has been handed over to the Chaldeans!’ 44 Fields will be purchased, the transaction written on a scroll and sealed,(GA) and witnesses will be called on in the land of Benjamin,(GB) in the areas surrounding Jerusalem, and in Judah’s cities—the cities of the hill country, the cities of the Judean foothills, and the cities of the Negev—because I will restore their fortunes.”[ac]

This is the Lord’s declaration.
