24-1:3††††† It came also in the dayes of Iehoiakim the sonne of Iosiah king of Iudah, vnto the ende of the eleuenth yeere of Zedekiah the sonne of Iosiah king of Iudah, vnto the carrying away of Ierusalem captiue in the fift moneth.

24-1:4††††† Then the word of the Lord came vnto me, saying,

24-1:5††††† Before I formed thee in the bellie, I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the wombe, I sanctified thee, and I ordeined thee a Prophet vnto the nations.

24-1:6††††† Then said I, Ah Lord God, behold, I cannot speake, for I am a childe.

24-1:7††††† But the Lord sayd vnto me, Say not, I am a childe: for thou shalt goe to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoeuer I command thee, thou shalt speake.

24-1:8††††† Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliuer thee, sayth the Lord.

24-1:9††††† Then the Lord put foorth his hand, and touched my mouth, and the Lord said vnto me, Behold, I haue put my words in thy mouth.

24-1:10†††† See, I haue this day set thee ouer the nations, and ouer the kingdomes, to roote out, and to pull downe, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build and to plant.

24-1:15†††† For loe, I will call all the families of the kingdoms of the North, saith the Lord, and they shall come, and they shall set euery one his throne at the entring of the gates of Ierusalem, and against all the walles thereof round about, & against all the cities of Iudah.

24-1:16†††† And I will vtter my iudgements against them touching all their wickednesse, who haue forsaken me, and haue burnt incense vnto other gods, and worshipped the workes of their owne hands.

24-2:4††††† Heare ye the word of the Lord, O house of Iacob, and all the families of the house of Israel.

24-2:5††††† Thus sayth the Lord, What iniquitie haue your fathers found in me, that they are gone farre from mee, and haue walked after vanitie, and are become vaine?

24-2:6††††† Neither sayd they, Where is the Lord that brought vs vp out of the land of Egypt? that led vs through the wildernesse, through a land of deserts and of pittes, through a land of drought, and of the shadow of death, through a land that no man passed thorow, and where no man dwelt.

24-2:7††††† And I brought you into a plentifull countrey, to eate the fruit thereof, and the goodnesse thereof; but when ye entred yee defiled my land, and made mine heritage an abomination.

24-2:8††††† The Priests said not, Where is the Lord ? and they that handle the Law knew me not: the pastours also transgressed against mee, and the Prophets prophecied by Baal, and walked after things that doe not profit.

24-2:9††††† Wherefore, I will yet pleade with you, sayth the Lord, and with your childrens children will I pleade.

24-2:10†††† For passe ouer the yles of Chittim, and see; and send vnto Kedar and consider diligently, and see if there be such a thing.

24-2:25†††† Withhold thy foote from being vnshod, and thy throte from thirst: but thou saidst, There is no hope. No, for I haue loued strangers, and after them will I goe.

24-2:26†††† As the thiefe is ashamed, when he is found: so is the house of Israel ashamed, they, their kings, their princes, and their priests, & their prophets,

24-2:27†††† Saying to a stocke; Thou art my father, and to a stone; Thou hast brought me forth: for they haue turned their backe vnto me, and not their face: but in the time of their trouble, they will say; Arise and saue vs.

24-2:28†††† But where are thy Gods that thou hast made thee? let them arise if they can saue thee in the time of thy trouble: for according to the number of thy cities, are thy Gods, O Iudah.

24-2:29†††† Wherefore will yee plead with me? yee all haue transgressed against me, saith the Lord.

24-2:31†††† O generation, see yee the word of the Lord: haue I beene a wildernesse vnto Israel? a land of darkenesse? wherefore say my people; We are Lords, we will come no more vnto thee?

24-2:32†††† Can a maide forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet my people haue forgotten me dayes without number.

24-2:33†††† Why trimmest thou thy way to seeke loue? therefore hast thou also taught the wicked ones thy wayes.

24-2:34†††† Also in thy skirts is found the blood of the soules of the poore innocents: I haue not found it by secret search, but vpon all these.

24-2:35†††† Yet thou sayest; Because I am innocent, surely his anger shall turne from me: behold, I will plead with thee, because thou sayest, I haue not sinned.

24-2:36†††† Why gaddest thou about so much to change thy way? thou also shalt bee ashamed of Egypt, as thou wast ashamed of Assyria.

24-2:37†††† Yea thou shalt goe forth from him, and thine hands vpon thine head: for the Lord hath reiected thy confidences, and thou shalt not prosper in them.

24-4:2††††† And thou shalt sweare, The Lord liueth, in Trueth, in Iudgement, and in Righteousnes, and the nations shall blesse themselues in him, and in him shall they glorie.

24-4:3††††† For thus saith the Lord to the men of Iudah and Ierusalem, Breake vp your fallow ground, and sow not among thornes.

24-4:4††††† Circumcise your selues to the Lord, and take away the foreskinnes of your heart, ye men of Iudah, and inhabitants of Ierusalem, lest my furie come forth like fire, and burne that none can quench it, because of the euill of your doings.

24-4:5††††† Declare ye in Iudah, and publish in Ierusalem, and say, Blow yee the Trumpet in the land: cry, gather together, and say, Assemble your selues, and let vs goe into the defenced cities.

24-4:11†††† At that time shall it bee said to this people, and to Ierusalem; A dry winde of the high places in the wildernes toward the daughter of my people, not to fanne, nor to cleanse.

24-4:24†††† I beheld the mountaines, and loe they trembled, and all the hilles mooued lightly.

24-5:1††††† Runne yee to and fro thorow the streetes of Ierusalem, and see now and knowe, and seeke in the broad places thereof, if ye can finde a man, if there be any that executeth iudgement, that seeketh the trueth, and I will pardon it.

24-5:2††††† And though they say, The Lord liueth, surely they sweare falsely.

24-5:3††††† O Lord, are not thine eyes vpon the trueth? Thou hast stricken them, but they haue not grieued; thou hast consumed them, but they haue refused to receiue correction: they haue made their faces harder then a rocke, they haue refused to returne.

24-5:4††††† Therefore I said, Surely these are poore, they are foolish: for they know not the way of the Lord, nor the iudgement of their God.

24-5:5††††† I wil get me vnto the great men, and will speake vnto them, for they haue knowen the way of the Lord, and the iudgement of their God: but these haue altogether broken the yoke, and burst the bondes.

24-5:6††††† Wherfore a lyon out of the forrest shall slay them, and a wolfe of the euenings shall spoile them, a leopard shall watch ouer their cities: euery one that goeth out thence shalbe torne in pieces, because their transgressions are many, and their backeslidings are increased.

24-5:7††††† How shall I pardon thee for this? Thy children haue forsaken mee, and sworne by them that are no gods: when I had fed them to the full, they then committed adulterie, and assembled themselues by troupes in the harlots houses.

24-5:8††††† They were as fed horses in the morning: euery one neighed after his neighbours wife:

24-5:9††††† Shall I not visit for these things, sayth the Lord, and shall not my soule bee auenged on such a nation as this?

24-5:10†††† Goe yee vp vpon her walles, and destroy, but make not a full ende: take away her battlements, for they are not the Lords.

24-5:11†††† For the house of Israel, and the house of Iudah haue dealt very treacherously against me, saith the Lord.

24-5:12†††† They haue belyed the Lord, and said; It is not he, neither shall euill come vpon vs, neither shal we see sword nor famine.

24-5:13†††† And the prophets shall become wind, and the word is not in them: thus shall it be done vnto them.

24-5:14†††† Wherfore thus saith the Lord God of Hostes; Because yee speake this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth, fire, and this people wood, and it shall deuoure them.

24-5:15†††† Loe, I will bring a nation vpon you from farre, O house of Israel, saith the Lord: it is a mighty nation, it is an ancient nation, a nation whose language thou knowest not, neither vnderstandest what they say.

24-5:16†††† Their quiuer is as an open sepulchre, they are all mighty men.

24-5:17†††† And they shall eate vp thine haruest and thy bread, which thy sonnes and thy daughters should eate: they shall eate vp thy flockes and thine heards: they shall eate vp thy vines and thy figtrees: they shall impouerish thy fenced cities wherein thou trustedst, with the sword.

24-5:18†††† Neuerthelesse in those daies, saith the Lord, I will not make a full end with you.

24-5:19†††† And it shall come to passe when yee shall say; Wherefore doth the Lord our God all these things vnto vs? then shalt thou answere them; Like as ye haue forsaken me, & serued strange Gods in your land; so shall yee serue strangers in a land that is not yours.

24-5:20†††† Declare this in the house of Iacob, and publish it in Iudah saying;

24-5:21†††† Heare now this, O foolish people, and without vnderstanding, which haue eyes and see not, which haue eares and heare not.

24-5:22†††† Feare yee not mee, saith the Lord ? Will yee not tremble at my presence, which haue placed the sand for the bound of the sea, by a perpetuall decree that it cannot passe it, and though the waues thereof tosse themselues, yet can they not preuaile, though they roare, yet can they not passe ouer it?

24-5:23†††† But this people hath a reuolting and a rebellious heart: they are reuolted and gone.

24-5:24†††† Neither say they in their heart; Let vs now feare the Lord our God, that giueth raine, both the former and the later in his season: he reserueth vnto vs the appointed weekes of the haruest.

24-5:25†††† Your iniquities haue turned away these things, & your sinnes haue withholden good things from you.

24-5:26†††† For among my people are found wicked men: they lay waite as hee that setteth snares, they set a trap, they catch men.

24-5:27†††† As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich.

24-5:28†††† They are waxen fat, they shine: yea they ouerpasse the deedes of the wicked: they iudge not the cause, the cause of the fatherlesse, yet they prosper: and the right of the needy doe they not iudge.

24-5:29†††† Shall I not visit for these things, saith the Lord ? shall not my soule be auenged on such a nation as this?

24-5:30†††† A wonderfull and horrible thing is committed in the land.

24-5:31†††† The prophets prophecie falsely, and the priests beare rule by their meanes, and my people loue to haue it so: and what will yee doe in the end therof?
