Jeremiah 10


Jer 10:1 Hear the word which the Lord speaks to you, O house of Israel.
Jer 10:2 Thus says the Lord," Do not learn the way of the nations, And do not be terrified by the signs of the heavens Although the nations are terrified by them;
Jer 10:3 For the customs of the peoples are delusion; Because it is wood cut from the forest, The work of the hands of a craftsman with a cutting tool.
Jer 10:4 "They decorate it with silver and with gold; They fasten it with nails and with hammers So that it will not totter.
Jer 10:5 "Like a scarecrow in a cucumber field are they, And they cannot speak; They must be carried, Because they cannot walk! Do not fear them, For they can do no harm, Nor can they do any good."
Jer 10:6 There is none like You, O Lord; You are great, and great is Your name in might.
Jer 10:7 Who would not fear You, O King of the nations? Indeed it is Your due! For among all the wise men of the nations And in all their kingdoms, There is none like You.
Jer 10:8 But they are altogether stupid and foolish In their discipline of delusion - their idol is wood!
Jer 10:9 Beaten silver is brought from Tarshish, And gold from Uphaz, The work of a craftsman and of the hands of a goldsmith; Violet and purple are their clothing; They are all the work of skilled men.
Jer 10:10 But the Lord is the true God; He is the living God and the everlasting King. At His wrath the earth quakes, And the nations cannot endure His indignation.
Jer 10:11 Thus you shall say to them," The gods that did not make the heavens and the earth will perish from the earth and from under the heavens."
Jer 10:12 It is He who made the earth by His power, Who established the world by His wisdom; And by His understanding He has stretched out the heavens.
Jer 10:13 When He utters His voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens, And He causes the clouds to ascend from the end of the earth; He makes lightning for the rain, And brings out the wind from His storehouses.
Jer 10:14 Every man is stupid, devoid of knowledge; Every goldsmith is put to shame by his idols; For his molten images are deceitful, And there is no breath in them.
Jer 10:15 They are worthless, a work of mockery; In the time of their punishment they will perish.
Jer 10:16 The portion of Jacob is not like these; For the Maker of all is He, And Israel is the tribe of His inheritance; The Lord of hosts is His name.
Jer 10:17 Pick up your bundle from the ground, You who dwell under siege!
Jer 10:18 For thus says the Lord," Behold, I am slinging out the inhabitants of the land At this time, And will cause them distress, That they may be found."
Jer 10:19 Woe is me, because of my injury! My wound is incurable. But I said," Truly this is a sickness, And I must bear it."
Jer 10:20 My tent is destroyed, And all my ropes are broken; My sons have gone from me and are no more. There is no one to stretch out my tent again Or to set up my curtains.
Jer 10:21 For the shepherds have become stupid And have not sought the Lord; Therefore they have not prospered, And all their flock is scattered.
Jer 10:22 The sound of a report! Behold, it comes - A great commotion out of the land of the north - To make the cities of Judah A desolation, a haunt of jackals.
Jer 10:23 I know, O Lord, that a man's way is not in himself, Nor is it in a man who walks to direct his steps.
Jer 10:24 Correct me, O Lord, but with justice; Not with Your anger, or You will bring me to nothing.
Jer 10:25 Pour out Your wrath on the nations that do not know You And on the families that do not call Your name; For they have devoured Jacob; They have devoured him and consumed him And have laid waste his habitation.
