of all II the earth.

50 "Ye that have escaped the sword, go
away, stand not still : remember the Lord
afar ofl', and let Jerusalem come into 3'our

51 ^ We are confounded, because we have
heard reproach : shame hath covered our
faces ; for strangers are come into the sanc-
tuaries of the Lord's house.

52 Wherefore behold, the days come,
saith the Lord, "that I will do judgment
upon her graven images : and through all
her land the wounded shall groan.

53 f Though Babylon should mount up to
heaven, and though she should fortify the
height of her strength, yet from me shall
spoilers come unto herj saith the Lord.

54 e A sound of a cry cometh from Baby-
lon, and great destruction from the land of
the Chaldeans :

55 Because the Lord hath spoiled Ba-
bylon, and destroyed out of her the great
voice: when her waves do roar like great
waters, a noise of their voice is uttered:

56 Because the spoiler is come upon her,
even upon Babylon, and her mighty men
are taken, every one of their bows is broken :
■•for the Lord God of recompenses shall
surely requite.

57 'And I will make drunk her princes,
and her wise men, her captains, and her
rulers, and her mighty men : and they shall
sleep a perpetual sleep, and not wake, saith
■'the King, whose name is the Lord of hosts.

58 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; || ' The
broad walls of Babylon shall be utterly
II broken, and her high gates shall be burned
with fire; and ""the people shall labour in
vain, and the folk in the fire, and they shall
be weary.

59 IT The word which Jeremiah the pro-
phet commanded Seraiah the son of Neriah,
the son of Maaseiah, when he went || with
Zedekiah the king of Judah into Babylon
in the fourth year of his reign. And this
Seraiah was a || quiet prince.

60 So Jeremiah wrote in a book all the
evil that should come upon Babylon, even
all these words that are written against

61 And Jeremiah said to Seraiah, When
thou comest to Babylon, and shalt see, and
shalt read all these words ;

62 Then shalt thou say, O Lord, thou
hast spoken against this place, to cut it of^

nor beast, but that it shall be t desolate for

bind a stone to it, and cast it into the midst
of Euphrates :

64 And thou shalt say. Thus shall Babylon
sink, and shall not rise from the evil that
I will bring upon her : p and they shall be

8 Zedekiah's sons killed, and Ms own eyes put out.
12 Nebnzar-adan lurneth and spoileth the city. 24
He carrieth away the captives. 32 Evil-merodach ad-
vanceth Jekoiachin.

ZEDEKIAH was " one and twenty years
old when he f began to reign, and he
reigned eleven years in Jerusalem, And his
mother's name was Hamutal the daughter
of Jeremiah of Libnah.

2 And he did that which was evil in the
eyes of the Lord, according to all that
Jehoiakim had done.

3 For through the anger of the Lord it
came to pass in Jerusalem and Judah, till he
had cast them out from his presence, that
Zedekiah rebelled against the king of Baby-

4 IT And it came to pass in the ''ninth
year of his reign, in the tenth month, in the
tenth day of the month, that Nebuchadrezzar
king of Babylon came, he and all his army,
against Jerusalem, and pitched against it, and
built forts against it round about.

5 So the city was besieged unto the eleventh
year of king Zedekiah.

6 And in the fourth month, in the ninth
day of the month, the famine was sore in the
city, so that there was no bread for the people
of the land.

7 Then the city was broken up, and all
the men of war fled, and went forth out of
the city by night by the way of the gate
between the two walls, which was by the
king's garden ; (now the Chaldeans were by
the city round about :) and they went by the
way of the plain,

8 II But the army of the Chaldeans pur-
sued after the king, and overtook Zedekiah
in the plains of Jericho ; and all his army
was scattered from him.

9 "^Then they took the king, and carried
him up unto the king of Babylon to Riblah,
in the land of Hamath; where he gave
judgment upon him.

10 ''And the king of Babylon slew the
eons of Zedekiah before his eyes : he slew
also all the princes of Judah, in Riblah.

11 Then he tput out the eyes of Zede-
kiah; and the king of Babylon bound him
in II chains, and carried him to Babylon, and
put him in f prison till the day of his death.

Nehiizar-adan spoileth the temple.

12 H^'Now in the fifth month, in the
tenth day of the month, '"which was the
nineteenth year of Nebuchadrezzar king of
Babylon, e came Nebuzar-adan, || f captain
of the guard, which t served the king of
Babylon, into Jerusalem,

13 And burned the house of the Lord,
and the king's house ; and all the houses of
Jerusalem, and all the houses of the great
men, burned he with fire :

14 And all the army of the Chaldeans,
that were with the captain of the guard,
brake down all the walls of Jerusalem round

15 ''Then Nebuzar-adan the captain of
the guard carried away captive certain of
the poor of the people, and the residue of
the people that remained in the city, and
those that fell away, that fell to the king of
Babylon, and the rest of the multitude.

16 But Nebuzar-adan the captain of the
guard left certain of the poor of the land
for vine-dressers and for husbandmen.

17 ' Also the ^ pillars of brass that were
in the house of the Lord, and the bases,
and the brazen sea that was in the house of
the Lord, the Chaldeans brake, and carried
all the brass of them to Babylon.

18 'The caldrons also, and the || shovels,
and the snuffers, and the || bowls, and the
spoons, and all the vessels of brass where-
with they ministered, took they away.

19 And the basins, and the || fire-pans,
and the bowls, and the caldrons, and the
candlesticks, and the spoons, and the cups ;
that which was of gold in gold, and that
which was of silver in silver, took the cap-
tain of the guard away.

20 The two pillars, one sea, and twelve
brazen bulls that were under the bases, which
king Solomon had made in the house of the
Lord: "" t^-he brass of all these vessels was
without weight.

21 And concerning the " pillars, the height
of one pillar was eighteen cubits ; and a
t fillet of twelve cubits did compass it ; and
the thickness thereof was four fingers : it was

22 And a chapiter of brass was upon it ;
and the height of one chapiter ifjas five cubits,
with net-work and pomegranates upon the
chapiters round about, all of brass. The
second pillar also and the pomegranates were
like unto these.

23 And there were ninety and six pome-
granates on a side ; and ° all the pomegranates
upon the net-work were an hundred round

24 IF And P the captain of the guard took

the second priest, and the three keepers of
the t door :

25 He took also out of the city an eunuch,
which had the charge of the men of war ;
and seven men of them that f were near the
king's person, which were found in the city ;
and the || principal scribe of the host, who
mustered the people of the land; and three-
score men of the people of the land, that
were found in the midst of the city.

26 So Nebuzar-adan the captain of the
guard took them, and brought them to the
king of Babylon to Riblah.

27 And the king of Babylon smote them,
and put them to death in Riblah in the land
of Hamath. Thus Judah was carried away
captive out of his own land.

28 ' This is the people whom Nebuchad-
rezzar carried away captive : in the ' seventh
year ' three thousand Jews and three and
twenty :

he did continually eat bread before him all
the days of his life.

34 And /or his diet, there was a continual

the days of his life.

thee ; and do unto them, as thou hast done
unto me for all my transgressions : for my
sighs are many, and ° my heart is faint.


I Jeremiah lamenteth the misery of Jerusalem. 20 He

complaineth thereof to God.

HOW hath the Lord covered the daugh-
ter of Zion with a cloud in his anger,
^and cast down from heaven unto the earth
"'the beauty of Israel, and remembered not
■^his footstool in the day of his anger!

2 The Lord hath swallowed up all the
habitations of Jacob, ''and hath not pitied:
he hath thrown down in his wrath the strong
holds of the daughter of Judah ; he hath
t brought them down to the ground : « he
hath polluted the kingdom and the princes

3 He hath cut off in his fierce anger all
the horn of Israel : *"he hath drawn back his
right hand from before the enemy, s and he
burned against Jacob like a flaming fire,
which devoureth round about.

4 •'He hath bent his bow like an enemy :
he stood with his right hand as an adversary
and slew f'all that were pleasant to the eye
in the tabernacle of the daughter of Zion :
he poured out his fury like fire.

5 ^ The Lord was as an enemy : he hath
swallowed up Israel, ' he hath swallowed up
all her palaces : he hath destroyed his strong
holds, and hath increased in the daughter of
Judah mourning and lamentation.

6 And he hath violently ™ taken away his

II tabernacle, " as i/" it were of a garden : he
hath destroyed his places of the assembly:
"the Lord hath caused the solemn feasts and
sabbaths to be forgotten in Zion, and hath
despised in the indignation of his anger the
king and the priest.

7 The Lord hath cast off his altar, he
hath abhorred his sanctuary, he hath t given
up into the hand of the enemy the walls of
her palaces ; p they have made a noise in the
house of the Lord, as in the day of a solemn

8 The Lord hath purposed to destroy the
wall of the daughter of Zion : i he hath
stretched out a line, he hath not withdrawn
his hand from f destroying : therefore he made
the rampart and the wall to lament ; they
languished together.

9 Her gates are sunk into the ground ; he
hath destroyed and ^ broken her bars: «her
king and her princes are, among the Gentiles :
' the law is no more : her " prophets also find
no vision from the Lord.

10 The elders of the daughter of Zion


Jeremiah complaineth thereof to God.

* sit upon the ground, and keep silence ; they
have yeast up dust upon their heads: they
have ^girded themselves with sackcloth: the
virgins of Jerusalem hang down their heads
to the ground.

11 "Mine eyes do fail with tears, ''my
bowels are troubled, "my liver is poured upon
the earth, for the destruction of the daughter
of my people ; because ^the children and the
sucklings || swoon in the streets of the city.

12 They say to their mothers, Where is
corn and wine 1 when they swooned as the
wounded in the streets of the city, when
their soul was poured out into their mothers'

13 What thing shall I take to witness for
thee ? *what thing shall I liken to thee, O
daughter of Jerusalem? What shall I equal to
thee, that I may comfort thee, O virgin
daughter of Zion ? for thy breach is great
like the sea: who can heal thee?

14 Thy *" prophets have seen vain and
foolish things for thee : and they have not
e discovered thine iniquity, to turn away thy
captivity ; but have seen for thee false bur-
dens and causes of banishment.

15 ''AH that pass t by, ' clap their hands at
thee ; they hiss '' and wag their head at the
daughter of Jerusalem, saying. Is this the
city that men call ' The perfection of beauty.
The joy of the whole earth?

16 ■" All thine enemies have opened their
mouth against thee : they hiss and gnash the
teeth : they say, "We have swallowed her up :
certainly this is the day that we looked for ;
we have found, ° we have seen it.

17 The Lord hath done that which he
had p devised; he hath fulfilled his word
that he had commanded in the days of old :
1 he hath thrown down, and hath not pitied :
and he hath caused thine enemy to ■■ rejoice
over thee, he hath set up the horn of thine

18 Their heart cried unto the Lord, O
"wall of the daughter of Zion, 'Let tears run
down like a river day and night : give thyself
no rest; let not the apple of thine eye cease.

19 Arise, "cry out in the night: in the
beginning of the watches ''pour out thy
heart like water before the face of the Lord :
lift up thine hands toward him for the life of
thy young children, ythat faint for hunger
'in the top of every street.

whom thou hast done this. ''Shall the women
