Jeremiah 42


Jer 42:1 Then all the commanders of the forces, Johanan the son of Kareah, Jezaniah the son of Hoshaiah, and all the people both small and great approached
Jer 42:2 and said to Jeremiah the prophet," Please let our petition come before you, and pray for us to the Lord your God, that is for all this remnant; because we are left but a few out of many, as your own eyes now see us,
Jer 42:3 that the Lord your God may tell us the way in which we should walk and the thing that we should do."
Jer 42:4 Then Jeremiah the prophet said to them," I have heard you. Behold, I am going to pray to the Lord your God in accordance with your words; and I will tell you the whole message which the Lord will answer you. I will not keep back a word from you."
Jer 42:5 Then they said to Jeremiah," May the Lord be a true and faithful witness against us if we do not act in accordance with the whole message with which the Lord your God will send you to us.
Jer 42:6 Whether it is pleasant or unpleasant, we will listen to the voice of the Lord our God to whom we are sending you, so that it may go well with us when we listen to the voice of the Lord our God."
Jer 42:7 Now at the end of ten days the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah.
Jer 42:8 Then he called for Johanan the son of Kareah and all the commanders of the forces that were with him, and for all the people both small and great,
Jer 42:9 and said to them," Thus says the Lord the God of Israel, to whom you sent me to present your petition before Him:
Jer 42:10 'If you will indeed stay in this land, then I will build you up and not tear you down, and I will plant you and not uproot you; for I will relent concerning the calamity that I have inflicted on you.
Jer 42:11 Do not be afraid of the king of Babylon, whom you are now fearing; do not be afraid of him, 'declares the Lord, 'for I am with you to save you and deliver you from his hand.
Jer 42:12 I will also show you compassion, so that he will have compassion on you and restore you to your own soil.
Jer 42:13 But if you are going to say," We will not stay in this land," so as not to listen to the voice of the Lord your God,
Jer 42:14 saying," No, but we will go to the land of Egypt, where we will not see war or hear the sound of a trumpet or hunger for bread, and we will stay there";
Jer 42:15 then in that case listen to the word of the Lord, O remnant of Judah. Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel," If you really set your mind to enter Egypt and go in to reside there,
Jer 42:16 then the sword, which you are afraid of, will overtake you there in the land of Egypt; and the famine, about which you are anxious, will follow closely after you there in Egypt, and you will die there.
Jer 42:17 So all the men who set their mind to go to Egypt to reside there will die by the sword, by famine and by pestilence; and they will have no survivors or refugees from the calamity that I am going to bring on them."'"
Jer 42:18 For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel," As My anger and wrath have been poured out on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so My wrath will be poured out on you when you enter Egypt. And you will become a curse, an object of horror, an imprecation and a reproach; and you will see this place no more."
Jer 42:19 The Lord has spoken to you, O remnant of Judah," Do not go into Egypt!" You should clearly understand that today I have testified against you.
Jer 42:20 For you have only deceived yourselves; for it is you who sent me to the Lord your God, saying," Pray for us to the Lord our God; and whatever the Lord our God says, tell us so, and we will do it."
Jer 42:21 So I have told you today, but you have not obeyed the Lord your God, even in whatever He has sent me to tell you.
Jer 42:22 Therefore you should now clearly understand that you will die by the sword, by famine and by pestilence, in the place where you wish to go to reside.

Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel," If you really set your mind to enter Egypt and go in to reside there, Jer 42:15 καὶ ἀπέστειλα πρὸς ὑμᾶς τοὺς παῖδάς μου τοὺς προφήτας λέγων ἀποστράφητε ἕκαστος ἀπὸ τῆς ὁδοῦ αὐτοῦ τῆς πονηρᾶς καὶ βελτίω ποιήσατε τὰ ἐπιτηδεύματα ὑμῶν καὶ οὐ πορεύσεσθε ὀπίσω θεῶν ἑτέρων τοῦ δουλεύειν αὐτοῖς καὶ οἰκήσετε ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ἧς ἔδωκα ὑμῖν καὶ τοῖς πατράσιν ὑμῶν καὶ οὐκ ἐκλίνατε τὰ ὦτα ὑμῶν καὶ οὐκ ἠκούσατε
Jer 42:16 Then it shall come to pass, that the sword, which ye feared, shall overtake you there in the land of Egypt, and the famine, whereof ye were afraid, shall follow close after you there in Egypt; and there ye shall die. Jer 42:16 then the sword, which you are afraid of, will overtake you there in the land of Egypt; and the famine, about which you are anxious, will follow closely after you there in Egypt, and you will die there. Jer 42:16 καὶ ἔστησαν υἱοὶ Ιωναδαβ υἱοῦ Ρηχαβ τὴν ἐντολὴν τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῶν ὁ δὲ λαὸς οὗτος οὐκ ἤκουσάν μου
Jer 42:17 So shall it be with all the men that set their faces to go into Egypt to sojourn there; they shall die by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence: and none of them shall remain or escape from the evil that I will bring upon them. Jer 42:17 So all the men who set their mind to go to Egypt to reside there will die by the sword, by famine and by pestilence; and they will have no survivors or refugees from the calamity that I am going to bring on them."'" Jer 42:17 διὰ τοῦτο οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ φέρω ἐπὶ Ιουδαν καὶ ἐπὶ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας Ιερουσαλημ πάντα τὰ κακά ἃ ἐλάλησα ἐπ᾽ αὐτούς
Jer 42:18 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; As mine anger and my fury hath been poured forth upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem; so shall my fury be poured forth upon you, when ye shall enter into Egypt: and ye shall be an execration, and an astonishment, and a curse, and a reproach; and ye shall see this place no more. Jer 42:18 For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel," As My anger and wrath have been poured out on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so My wrath will be poured out on you when you enter Egypt. And you will become a curse, an object of horror, an imprecation and a reproach; and you will see this place no more." Jer 42:18 διὰ τοῦτο οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ἐπειδὴ ἤκουσαν υἱοὶ Ιωναδαβ υἱοῦ Ρηχαβ τὴν ἐντολὴν τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῶν ποιεῖν καθότι ἐνετείλατο αὐτοῖς ὁ πατὴρ αὐτῶν

Jer 42:19 οὐ μὴ ἐκλίπῃ ἀνὴρ τῶν υἱῶν Ιωναδαβ υἱοῦ Ρηχαβ παρεστηκὼς κατὰ πρόσωπόν μου πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας τῆς γῆς
Jer 42:20 For ye dissembled in your hearts, when ye sent me unto the LORD your God, saying, Pray for us unto the LORD our God; and according unto all that the LORD our God shall say, so declare unto us, and we will do it. Jer 42:20 For you have only deceived yourselves; for it is you who sent me to the Lord your God, saying," Pray for us to the Lord our God; and whatever the Lord our God says, tell us so, and we will do it."
