Ang Paanggid Parte sa Linen nga Wagkos

13 Nagsiling ang Ginoo sa akon, “Lakat kag bakal sang linen nga wagkos, kag iwagkos ini sa imo hawak. Pero indi mo ini paglabhan.” Gani nagbakal ako sang wagkos kag ginwagkos ini sa akon hawak, suno sa ginsiling sang Ginoo.

Dayon nagsiling liwat ang Ginoo sa akon, “Huksa ang wagkos nga imo ginbakal kag maglakat ka sa may Suba sang Eufrates[a] kag tagua didto ang wagkos sa may guhab sang bato.” Gani nagkadto ako sa Suba sang Eufrates kag gintago ko ini didto suno sa ginsiling sang Ginoo sa akon.

Pagkaligad sang malawig nga tion, nagsiling liwat ang Ginoo sa akon, “Magkadto ka sa Suba sang Eufrates kag kuhaa ang wagkos nga ginpatago ko sa imo didto.” Gani nagkadto ako sa Suba sang Eufrates kag ginkuha ko ang wagkos sa gintaguan ko sini, pero gabok na ini kag indi na gid mapuslan. 8-9 Dayon nagsiling ang Ginoo sa akon, “Pareho man sina ang matabo sa bugal sang Juda kag sa dako nga bugal sang Jerusalem. 10 Ining malaot nga mga tawo indi magtuman sa akon mga pulong. Ginasunod nila ang katig-a sang ila tagipusuon, kag nagaalagad kag nagasimba sila sa iban nga mga dios. Gani mangin pareho gid sila sa wagkos nga indi na gid mapuslan. 11 Subong nga ang wagkos nagahugot sa hawak sang isa ka tawo, gusto ko man nga ang bug-os nga katawhan sang Israel kag Juda mag-uyat sing hugot sa akon. Ginhimo ko sila nga akon katawhan para sa akon kadayawan kag kadungganan, pero indi sila magpamati sa akon. Ako, ang Ginoo, ang nagasiling sini.”

Ang Paanggid Parte sa Panit nga Suludlan sang Bino

12 “Jeremias, silinga ang katawhan sang Israel nga ako, ang Ginoo, ang Dios sang Israel nagasiling, ‘Ang tanan ninyo nga panit nga suludlan sang bino mapuno sang bino.’ Kag kon magsiling sila sa imo, ‘Nahibaluan na namon nga mapuno sang bino ang tanan namon nga panit nga suludlan,’ 13 sabton mo sila nga amo ini ang buot ko silingon: ‘Silutan ko ang tanan nga pumuluyo sang sini nga duta pareho nga daw hubugon ko sila sang bino. Huo, silutan ko, ang mga hari nga kaliwat ni David, mga pari, mga propeta kag ang tanan nga pumuluyo sang Jerusalem. 14 Bungguon ko sila sa isa kag isa, ginikanan kag kabataan. Indi gid ako maluoy sa pagpamatay sa ila. Ako, ang Ginoo, ang nagasiling sini.’ ”

Paandam Batok sa Pagpabugal

15 Magpamati kamo sing maayo, kag indi kamo magpabugal, kay naghambal ang Ginoo. 16 Padunggi ninyo ang Ginoo nga inyo Dios samtang wala pa niya mapadala ang kadulom, kag samtang wala pa kamo masandad sa madulom nga mga bukid. Ang kasanag nga inyo ginalauman himuon niya nga puwerte nga kadulom. 17 Kon indi pa gid gani kamo magpamati, magahibi ako sa tago tungod sa inyo bugal. Magahibi ako sing tudo nga nagatululo ang akon mga luha, kay pagabihagon kamo nga katawhan sang Ginoo.

18 Ginsugo ako sang Ginoo nga silingon ang hari kag ang iya iloy nga magpanaog sa ila trono kay madali na lang kuhaon sa ila ulo ang ila matahom nga mga korona. 19 Pagasiradhan ang mga puwertahan sang mga banwa sang Negev; wala na sing may makasulod ukon makaguwa didto. Pagabihagon ang tanan nga katawhan sang Juda.

20 Tan-awa ang mga kaaway nga nagapadulong halin sa aminhan. Jerusalem, diin na bala ang imo mga pumuluyo nga imo ginapabugal, nga gintugyan ko sa imo nga imo tatapon? 21 Ano ang batyagon mo kon ang imo kadampig nga nasyon magagahom sa imo? Indi ayhan magabatyag ka sing kasakit pareho sa isa ka babayi nga manugbata? 22 Kon magpamangkot ka sa imo kaugalingon kon ngaa ginlaglag ka pareho sang babayi nga gin-gisi ang iya bayo kag ginhimuslan, ini tungod sa imo madamo nga mga sala. 23 Mailisan bala sang isa ka maitom nga tawo[b] ang kolor sang iya panit? Mailisan man bala sang sapat nga leopardo ang iya mga pintok-pintok? Siyempre indi! Gani kamo man, mga taga-Jerusalem, indi kamo makahimo sing maayo, kay nangin batasan na ninyo ang paghimo sing malain.

24-25 Nagsiling ang Ginoo, “Laptahon ko kamo pareho sang upa nga ginapalid sang hangin nga halin sa desierto. Amo ini ang inyo kapalaran nga ginbuot ko para sa inyo, tungod kay ginkalimtan ninyo ako, kag nagsalig kamo sa indi matuod nga mga dios. 26 Ubahan ko kamo agod pakahuy-an. 27 Nakita ko ang inyo makangilil-ad nga mga buhat nga amo ang pagsimba sa mga dios-dios sa mga bukid kag sa mga uma. Pareho kamo sa babayi nga nagpanginlalaki nga puwerte ang kailigbon, ukon pareho sa makahuluya nga babayi nga nagabaligya sang iya lawas. Kaluluoy kamo, mga taga-Jerusalem! Hasta san-o pa bala kamo magpabilin nga mahigko?”

A Linen Belt

13 This is what the Lord said to me: “Go and buy a linen belt and put it around your waist, but do not let it touch water.” So I bought a belt, as the Lord directed, and put it around my waist.

Then the word of the Lord came to me a second time:(A) “Take the belt you bought and are wearing around your waist, and go now to Perath[a](B) and hide it there in a crevice in the rocks.” So I went and hid it at Perath, as the Lord told me.(C)

Many days later the Lord said to me, “Go now to Perath and get the belt I told you to hide there.” So I went to Perath and dug up the belt and took it from the place where I had hidden it, but now it was ruined and completely useless.

Then the word of the Lord came to me: “This is what the Lord says: ‘In the same way I will ruin the pride of Judah and the great pride(D) of Jerusalem. 10 These wicked people, who refuse to listen(E) to my words, who follow the stubbornness of their hearts(F) and go after other gods(G) to serve and worship them,(H) will be like this belt—completely useless!(I) 11 For as a belt is bound around the waist, so I bound all the people of Israel and all the people of Judah to me,’ declares the Lord, ‘to be my people for my renown(J) and praise and honor.(K) But they have not listened.’(L)


12 “Say to them: ‘This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: Every wineskin should be filled with wine.’ And if they say to you, ‘Don’t we know that every wineskin should be filled with wine?’ 13 then tell them, ‘This is what the Lord says: I am going to fill with drunkenness(M) all who live in this land, including the kings who sit on David’s throne, the priests, the prophets and all those living in Jerusalem. 14 I will smash them one against the other, parents and children alike, declares the Lord. I will allow no pity(N) or mercy or compassion(O) to keep me from destroying(P) them.’”

Threat of Captivity

15 Hear and pay attention,
    do not be arrogant,
    for the Lord has spoken.(Q)
16 Give glory(R) to the Lord your God
    before he brings the darkness,
before your feet stumble(S)
    on the darkening hills.
You hope for light,
    but he will turn it to utter darkness
    and change it to deep gloom.(T)
17 If you do not listen,(U)
    I will weep in secret
    because of your pride;
my eyes will weep bitterly,
    overflowing with tears,(V)
    because the Lord’s flock(W) will be taken captive.(X)

18 Say to the king(Y) and to the queen mother,(Z)
    “Come down from your thrones,
for your glorious crowns(AA)
    will fall from your heads.”
19 The cities in the Negev will be shut up,
    and there will be no one to open them.
All Judah(AB) will be carried into exile,
    carried completely away.

20 Look up and see
    those who are coming from the north.(AC)
Where is the flock(AD) that was entrusted to you,
    the sheep of which you boasted?
21 What will you say when the Lord sets over you
    those you cultivated as your special allies?(AE)
Will not pain grip you
    like that of a woman in labor?(AF)
22 And if you ask yourself,
    “Why has this happened to me?”(AG)
it is because of your many sins(AH)
    that your skirts have been torn off(AI)
    and your body mistreated.(AJ)
23 Can an Ethiopian[b] change his skin
    or a leopard its spots?
Neither can you do good
    who are accustomed to doing evil.(AK)

24 “I will scatter you like chaff(AL)
    driven by the desert wind.(AM)
25 This is your lot,
    the portion(AN) I have decreed for you,”
declares the Lord,
“because you have forgotten(AO) me
    and trusted in false gods.(AP)
26 I will pull up your skirts over your face
    that your shame may be seen(AQ)
27 your adulteries and lustful neighings,
    your shameless prostitution!(AR)
I have seen your detestable acts
    on the hills and in the fields.(AS)
Woe to you, Jerusalem!
    How long will you be unclean?”(AT)


  1. Jeremiah 13:4 Or possibly to the Euphrates; similarly in verses 5-7
  2. Jeremiah 13:23 Hebrew Cushite (probably a person from the upper Nile region)

13 Thus saith the Lord unto me, Go and get thee a linen girdle, and put it upon thy loins, and put it not in water.

So I got a girdle according to the word of the Lord, and put it on my loins.

And the word of the Lord came unto me the second time, saying,

Take the girdle that thou hast got, which is upon thy loins, and arise, go to Euphrates, and hide it there in a hole of the rock.

So I went, and hid it by Euphrates, as the Lord commanded me.

And it came to pass after many days, that the Lord said unto me, Arise, go to Euphrates, and take the girdle from thence, which I commanded thee to hide there.

Then I went to Euphrates, and digged, and took the girdle from the place where I had hid it: and, behold, the girdle was marred, it was profitable for nothing.

Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

Thus saith the Lord, After this manner will I mar the pride of Judah, and the great pride of Jerusalem.

10 This evil people, which refuse to hear my words, which walk in the imagination of their heart, and walk after other gods, to serve them, and to worship them, shall even be as this girdle, which is good for nothing.

11 For as the girdle cleaveth to the loins of a man, so have I caused to cleave unto me the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah, saith the Lord; that they might be unto me for a people, and for a name, and for a praise, and for a glory: but they would not hear.

12 Therefore thou shalt speak unto them this word; Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Every bottle shall be filled with wine: and they shall say unto thee, Do we not certainly know that every bottle shall be filled with wine?

13 Then shalt thou say unto them, Thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will fill all the inhabitants of this land, even the kings that sit upon David's throne, and the priests, and the prophets, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, with drunkenness.

14 And I will dash them one against another, even the fathers and the sons together, saith the Lord: I will not pity, nor spare, nor have mercy, but destroy them.

15 Hear ye, and give ear; be not proud: for the Lord hath spoken.

16 Give glory to the Lord your God, before he cause darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and, while ye look for light, he turn it into the shadow of death, and make it gross darkness.

17 But if ye will not hear it, my soul shall weep in secret places for your pride; and mine eye shall weep sore, and run down with tears, because the Lord's flock is carried away captive.

18 Say unto the king and to the queen, Humble yourselves, sit down: for your principalities shall come down, even the crown of your glory.

19 The cities of the south shall be shut up, and none shall open them: Judah shall be carried away captive all of it, it shall be wholly carried away captive.

20 Lift up your eyes, and behold them that come from the north: where is the flock that was given thee, thy beautiful flock?

21 What wilt thou say when he shall punish thee? for thou hast taught them to be captains, and as chief over thee: shall not sorrows take thee, as a woman in travail?

22 And if thou say in thine heart, Wherefore come these things upon me? For the greatness of thine iniquity are thy skirts discovered, and thy heels made bare.

23 Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.

24 Therefore will I scatter them as the stubble that passeth away by the wind of the wilderness.

25 This is thy lot, the portion of thy measures from me, saith the Lord; because thou hast forgotten me, and trusted in falsehood.

26 Therefore will I discover thy skirts upon thy face, that thy shame may appear.

27 I have seen thine adulteries, and thy neighings, the lewdness of thy whoredom, and thine abominations on the hills in the fields. Woe unto thee, O Jerusalem! wilt thou not be made clean? when shall it once be?
