NASB — Jeremiah 11 — KJV

The Broken Covenant

1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 2aHear the words of this bcovenant, and speak to the men of Judah and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem; 3 and say to them, ‘Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, “aCursed is the man who does not heed the words of this covenant 4 which I commanded your forefathers in the aday that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, from the biron furnace, saying, ‘cListen to My voice, and Ido according to all which I command you; so you shall be dMy people, and I will be your God,’ 5 in order to confirm the aoath which I swore to your forefathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey, as [it is] this day.”’” Then I said, “bAmen, O LORD.”

[5] aEx 13:5; Dt 7:12; Ps 105:9; Jr 32:22 bJr 28:6

6 ¶ And the LORD said to me, “aProclaim all these words in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem, saying, ‘bHear the words of this covenant and cdo them. 7 For I solemnly awarned your fathers in the bday that I brought them up from the land of Egypt, even to this day, Icwarning persistently, saying, “dListen to My voice.” 8 Yet they adid not obey or incline their ear, but walked, each one, in the stubbornness of his evil heart; therefore I brought on them all the bwords of this covenant, which I commanded [them] to do, but they did not.’”

9 ¶ Then the LORD said to me, “A aconspiracy has been found among the men of Judah and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 10 They have aturned back to the iniquities of their Iancestors who brefused to hear My words, and they chave gone after other gods to serve them; the house of Israel and the house of Judah have dbroken My covenant which I made with their fathers.” 11 Therefore thus says the LORD, “Behold I am abringing disaster on them which they will bnot be able to escape; though they will ccry to Me, yet I will not listen to them. 12 Then the cities of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem will ago and cry to the gods to whom they burn incense, but they surely will not save them in the time of their disaster. 13 For your gods are Iaas many as your cities, O Judah; and Ias many as the streets of Jerusalem are the altars you have set up to the bshameful thing, altars to cburn incense to Baal.

Plots against Jeremiah

  18 ¶ Moreover, the LORD amade it known to me and I knew it;
  Then You showed me their deeds.
  19 But I was like a gentle alamb led to the slaughter;
  And I did not know that they had bdevised plots against me, [saying],
  “Let us destroy the tree with its Ifruit,
  And clet us cut him off from the dland of the living,
  That his ename be remembered no more.”
  20 But, O LORD of hosts, who ajudges righteously,
  Who btries the Ifeelings and the heart,
  Let me see Your vengeance on them,
  For to You have I IIcommitted my cause.

Jeremiah proclaimeth God's Covenant,

1 ¶ The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 2 Hear ye the words of this covenant, and speak unto the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem; 3 And say thou unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel; Cursed [be] the man that obeyeth not the words of this covenant, 4 Which I commanded your fathers in the day [that] I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, Obey my voice, and do them, according to all which I command you: so shall ye be my people, and I will be your God: 5 That I may perform the oath which I have sworn unto your fathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey, as [it is] this day. Then answered I, and said, So be it, O LORD. 6 Then the LORD said unto me, Proclaim all these words in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, saying, Hear ye the words of this covenant, and do them. 7 For I earnestly protested unto your fathers in the day [that] I brought them up out of the land of Egypt, [even] unto this day, rising early and protesting, saying, Obey my voice.

rebuketh the Jews disobeying thereof,

8 Yet they obeyed not, nor inclined their ear, but walked every one in the imagination of their evil heart: therefore I will bring upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded [them] to do; but they did [them] not. 9 And the LORD said unto me, A conspiracy is found among the men of Judah, and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 10 They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words; and they went after other gods to serve them: the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers.

prophesieth evils to come upon them,

11 ¶ Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them. 12 Then shall the cities of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem go, and cry unto the gods unto whom they offer incense: but they shall not save them at all in the time of their trouble. 13 For [according to] the number of thy cities were thy gods, O Judah; and [according to] the number of the streets of Jerusalem have ye set up altars to [that] shameful thing, [even] altars to burn incense unto Baal. 14 Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear [them] in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble. 15 What hath my beloved to do in mine house, [seeing] she hath wrought lewdness with many, and the holy flesh is passed from thee? when thou doest evil, then thou rejoicest. 16 The LORD called thy name, A green olive tree, fair, [and] of goodly fruit: with the noise of a great tumult he hath kindled fire upon it, and the branches of it are broken. 17 For the LORD of hosts, that planted thee, hath pronounced evil against thee, for the evil of the house of Israel and of the house of Judah, which they have done against themselves to provoke me to anger in offering incense unto Baal.

and upon the men of Anathoth, for conspiring to kill Jeremiah.

18 ¶ And the LORD hath given me knowledge [of it], and I know [it]: then thou shewedst me their doings. 19 But I [was] like a lamb [or] an ox [that] is brought to the slaughter; and I knew not that they had devised devices against me, [saying], Let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof, and let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name may be no more remembered. 20 But, O LORD of hosts, that judgest righteously, that triest the reins and the heart, let me see thy vengeance on them: for unto thee have I revealed my cause. 21 Therefore thus saith the LORD of the men of Anathoth, that seek thy life, saying, Prophesy not in the name of the LORD, that thou die not by our hand: 22 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, I will punish them: the young men shall die by the sword; their sons and their daughters shall die by famine: 23 And there shall be no remnant of them: for I will bring evil upon the men of Anathoth, [even] the year of their visitation.
