1902 Rotherham's Emphasized Bible (EBR)
1 Jeremiah, being imprisoned by Zedekiah for his prophecy, 6 buyeth Hanameel's field. 12 Baruch must preserve the evidences, as tokens of the people's return. 16 Jeremiah in his prayer complaineth to God. 26 God confirmeth the captivity for their sins, 36 and promiseth a gracious return.
32:2 and, then, the forces of the king of Babylon, were besieging Jerusalem,and, Jeremiah the prophet, had been shut up in the guard-court, which was in the house of the king of Judah;
32:3 whom Zedekiah king of Judah, had shut up, saying,Why, art thou, prophesying, saying,Thus, saith Yahweh, Behold me! giving up this city into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall capture it;
32:4 and, Zedekiah king of Judah, shall not be delivered out of the hand of the Chaldeans,for he shall be, wholly given up, into the hand of the king of Babylon, and shall speakthe mouth of the one to the mouth of the other, and the eyes of the one, into the eyes of the other, shall look;
32:7 Lo! Hanameel son of Shallum thine uncle, hath come unto thee, saying,Buy thee my field that is in Anathoth, for, thine, is the right of redemption, to buy it.
32:8 So Hanameel son of mine uncle, came unto me, according to the word of Yahweh, into the guard-court, and said unto me, Buy, I pray thee, my field that is in Anathoth, which is in the land of Benjamin, for, thine, is the right of inheritance, and, thine, the redemption,buy it for thyself. So I knew, that, the word of Yahweh, it was.
32:9 And I bought the field, from Hanameel son of mine uncle, that was in Anathoth,and weighed him the silver, seventeen shekels, was the silver;
32:10 and I wrote in the scroll, and sealed it, and took in attestation, witnesses,and weighed the silver in the balances.
32:11 Then took I the scroll of purchase, both that which was sealedthe title and the conditionsand that which was open;
32:12 and gave the scroll of purchase, unto Baruch son of Neriah son of Mahseiah, in the sight of Hanameel mine uncle['s son], and in the sight of the witnesses, who subscribed the scroll of purchase,in the sight of all the Jews, who were sitting in the guard-court.
32:13 Then charged I Baruch, in their sight, saying:
32:14 Thus, saith Yahweh of hosts, God of Israel, Take thou these scrolls, this scroll of purchase, even that which is sealed, and this scroll that is open, and put them in an earthen vessel,that they may remain many days.
32:19 Great in counsel, and mighty in deed,Whose eyes are open on all the ways of the sons of men, to give unto every one, According to his ways, and, According to the fruit of his doings:
32:20 Who didst set signs and wonders, in the land of Egypt, unto this day, and in Israel, and among mankind,And didst make for thyself a name, as at this day;
32:21 And didst bring forth thy people Israel, out of the land of Egypt, With signs and with wonders, and, With a strong, hand, and, With an outstretched, arm, and, With great, terror;
32:22 And didst give unto them this land, which thou hadst sworn to their fathers to give unto them,a land flowing with milk and honey;
32:23 And they came in and took possession of it, But hearkened not unto thy voice, Nor, in thy law, did they walk, Nought of what thou hadst commanded them to do, did they do,And so thou hast caused to befall them, all this calamity.
32:24 Lo! the earthworks! they, have entered the city, to capture it, And, the city, hath been given into the hand of the Chaldeans, who are fighting against it, because of the sword and the famine and the pestilence,And so, what thou didst speak, hath come to pass, And there, thou art, looking on!
32:29 And the Chaldeans, who are fighting against this city, Shall enter, and, Shall set this city on fire, and, Shall consume it,With the houses on whose roofs they burned incense to Baal, and poured out drink-offerings to other, gods, that they might provoke me to anger;
32:30 For the sons of Israel and the sons of Judah have been nothing but doers of wickedness in my sight, from the days of their youth,For the sons of Israel have been doing nothing but provoke me to anger by the workmanship of their hands, Declareth Yahweh;
32:31 For, According to mine anger, and, According to mine indignation, hath been to me this city, from the day when they built it, even unto this day,that I should pull it down from before my face:
32:32 because of all the wickedness of the sons of Israel and the sons of Judah, which they have done to provoke me to anger, they, their kings, their princes, their priests, and their prophets, and the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem:
32:33 Thus have they turned unto me the back, and not the face,Though I instructed them, betimes, instructing them, Yet have they not, been hearkening, to receive correction;
32:34 But have set their abominations, in the house on which my name hath been called, to defile it;
32:35 And have built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of Ben-hinnom, To cause their sons and their daughters to pass through unto Molech, Which I commanded them not, Neither came it up on my heart, That they should do this horrible thing,Causing, Judah, to sin!
32:36 Now therefore, because of this,Thus, saith Yahweh, God of Israel,Concerning this city, whereof ye, are saying, It hath been delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon, by sword, and by famine, and by pestilence:
32:37 Behold me! gathering them out of all the lands, whither I have driven themIn mine anger, and, In mine indignation, and, In great vexation,And I will cause them to return into this place, And will make them dwell, securely;
32:38 And they shall become my, people,And, I, will become their, God;
32:39 And I will give them one heart, and one way, That they may revere, me, all the days,For the good of them, and of their children after, them;
32:40 And I will solemnise to them, an age-abiding covenant, That I will not turn away from following them, to do them good,But, the reverence of myself, will I put in their heart, so that they shall not turn away from me.
32:41 And I will rejoice over them, to do them good,And will plant them in this land, in truth, with all my heart, and with all my soul.
32:43 Therefore shall fields be bought in this land,whereof ye, are saying, It is, a desolation, Without man or beast, It hath been given into the hand of the Chaldeans:
32:44 Fieldsfor silver, shall men buy, And write in scrolls, And seal them, And take in attestation, witnesses, In the land of Benjamin, and, In the places round about Jerusalem, and, In the cities of Judah, and, In the cities of the hill country, and, In the cities of the lowland, and, In the cities of the South,For I will cause them of their captivity to return, Declareth Yahweh.
