Jeremiah Outline
Jeremiah 11:1 Jeremiah 12:17

1 The word that came to Jeremiah from Jehovah, saying,

2 Listen to the words of this covenant and speak them to the men of Judah and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

3 And you shall say to them, Thus says Jehovah the God of Israel, Cursed is the man who does not listen to the words of this covenant,

4 Which I commanded your fathers in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, Listen to My voice and do the things according to all which I command you; and you will be My people and I will be your God,

5 That I may establish the oath which I swore to your fathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey, as it is this day. And I answered and said, Amen, Jehovah.

6 And Jehovah said to me, Proclaim all these words in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem, saying, Hear the words of this covenant and do them.

7 For I solemnly warned your fathers in the day that I brought them up from the land of Egypt, even to this day, rising up early and warning, saying, Listen to My voice.

8 But they did not listen or incline their ear, but all walked in the stubbornness of their evil heart; therefore I brought upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded them to do, and they have not done them.

9 And Jehovah said to me, A conspiracy has been found among the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

10 They have turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, who refused to listen to My words, and they have gone 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.

11 Therefore thus says Jehovah, I am about to bring evil upon them, from which they cannot escape; and they will cry to Me, but I will not listen to them.

12 Then the cities of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem will go and cry to the gods to whom they burn incense, but they will not save them at all in the time of their trouble.

13 For according to the number of your cities are your gods, O Judah, and according to the number of the streets of Jerusalem you have set up altars to that shameful thing, altars to burn incense to Baal.

14 And as for you, do not pray for this people, nor lift up a ringing cry or a prayer for them; for I will not hear when they call to Me because of their trouble.

15 What has My beloved to do in My house, Since she has committed lewdness with many And the holy flesh has passed from you? When you do evil, then you rejoice.

16 Jehovah called your name, A flourishing olive tree, beautiful in fruit and form; With the sound of a great tumult He has set fire to it, And its branches are broken.

17 And Jehovah of hosts, who planted you, has pronounced evil against you because of the evil of the house of Israel and of the house of Judah, which they have done for themselves, to provoke Me to anger by burning incense to Baal.

18 And Jehovah made it known to me, so I knew; then You showed me their deeds.

19 And I was like a gentle lamb led to the slaughter, and I did not know that they devised devices against me, saying, Let us destroy the tree with its fruit, and let us cut him off from the land of the living that his name be remembered no longer.

20 But, O Jehovah of hosts, who judges righteously, Who tests the inward parts and the heart, Let me see Your vengeance on them, For I have revealed my cause to You.

21 Therefore thus says Jehovah concerning the men of Anathoth, who seek your life, saying, Do not prophesy in the name of Jehovah, that you may not die by our hand;

22 Therefore thus says Jehovah of hosts, I am about to punish them: The young men will die by the sword; their sons and their daughters will die by famine;

23 And they will have no remnant, because I will bring evil to the men of Anathoth in the year of their visitation.


CHAPTER 12

1 You are righteous, O Jehovah, When I plead my cause with You; Yet I will speak with You of Your judgments: Why does the way of the wicked prosper? Why are all those who deal treacherously at ease?

2 You have planted them; they have also taken root; They go on and bring forth fruit. You are near, in their mouth, But far from their inward parts.

3 And You, O Jehovah, know me; You see me And try my heart toward You. Pull them out like sheep for the slaying, And set them apart for the day of slaughter.

4 How long will the land mourn And the grass of every field dry up? Because of the wickedness of those who dwell in it, Beasts and birds are swept away, Because they said, He will not see our end.

5 If you have run with footmen and they have wearied you, How then will you compete with horses? If you are secure in a land of peace, How then will you do in the majesty of the Jordan?

6 For even your brothers and the house of your father, Even they have dealt treacherously with you; Even they have cried aloud after you. Do not believe them, although they speak good things to you.

7 I have forsaken My house; I have abandoned My inheritance; I have given the beloved of My soul Into the hand of her enemies.

8 My inheritance has become to Me Like a lion in the forest; She lifted up her voice against Me, Therefore I hated her.

9 Is My inheritance a speckled bird of prey to Me? Are the birds of prey against her all around? Go, gather all the beasts of the field; Bring them to devour.

10 Many shepherds have destroyed My vineyard; They have trampled down My portion; They have made My pleasant portion A desolate wilderness.

11 They have made it a desolation; Desolate, it mourns to Me; The whole land has been desolated Because no one lays it to heart.

12 Upon all the bare heights in the wilderness Destroyers have come, For the sword of Jehovah devours From one end of the land to the other end of the land; No flesh has peace.

13 They have sown wheat, and they reap thorns; They have worn themselves out, but they profit nothing; Therefore be ashamed of your produce Because of the burning anger of Jehovah.

14 Thus says Jehovah concerning all My evil neighbors, who have touched the inheritance which I caused My people Israel to inherit, I am about to pluck them up out of their land, and I will pluck up the house of Judah out from their midst.

15 And after I have plucked them up, I will return and have compassion on them and bring them again, each one to his inheritance and each one to his land.

16 And if they will diligently learn the ways of My people, to swear by My name, saying, As Jehovah lives, even as they taught My people to swear by Baal, they will be built up in the midst of My people.

17 But if they do not listen, I will pluck up that nation, plucking it up and destroying it, declares Jehovah.
