24-1:2 To whom834 the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 in the days3117 of Josiah2977 the son1121 of Amon526 king4428 of Judah,3063 in the thirteenth7969, 6240 year8141 of his reign.4427
24-1:3 It came1961 also in the days3117 of Jehoiakim3079 the son1121 of Josiah2977 king4428 of Judah,3063 unto5704 the end8552 of the eleventh6249, 6240 year8141 of Zedekiah6667 the son1121 of Josiah2977 king4428 of Judah,3063 unto5704 the carrying away1540 of Jerusalem3389 captive in the fifth2549 month.2320
24-1:4 Then the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559
24-1:5 Before2962 I formed3335 thee in the belly990 I knew3045 thee; and before2962 thou camest forth3318 out of the womb4480, 7358 I sanctified6942 thee, and I ordained5414 thee a prophet5030 unto the nations.1471
24-1:6 Then said559 I, Ah,162 Lord136 GOD!3069 behold,2009 I cannot3808, 3045 speak:1696 for3588 I595 am a child.5288
24-1:7 But the LORD3068 said559 unto413 me, Say559 not,408 I595 am a child:5288 for3588 thou shalt go1980 to5921 all3605 that834 I shall send7971 thee, and whatsoever3605, 834 I command6680 thee thou shalt speak.1696
24-1:8 Be not408 afraid3372 of their faces:4480, 6440 for3588 I589 am with854 thee to deliver5337 thee, saith5002 the LORD.3068
24-1:9 Then the LORD3068 put forth7971 (853) his hand,3027 and touched5060, 5921 my mouth.6310 And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 me, Behold,2009 I have put5414 my words1697 in thy mouth.6310
24-1:10 See,7200 I have this2088 day3117 set6485 thee over5921 the nations1471 and over5921 the kingdoms,4467 to root out,5428 and to pull down,5422 and to destroy,6 and to throw down,2040 to build,1129 and to plant.5193
24-1:11 Moreover the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559 Jeremiah,3414 what4100 seest7200 thou?859 And I said,559 I589 see7200 a rod4731 of an almond tree.8247
24-1:12 Then said559 the LORD3068 unto413 me, Thou hast well3190 seen:7200 for3588 I589 will hasten8245, 5921 my word1697 to perform6213 it.
24-1:13 And the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me the second time,8145 saying,559 What4100 seest7200 thou?859 And I said,559 I589 see7200 a seething5301 pot;5518 and the face6440 thereof is toward4480, 6440 the north.6828
24-1:14 Then the LORD3068 said559 unto413 me, Out of the north4480, 6828 an evil7451 shall break forth6605 upon5921 all3605 the inhabitants3427 of the land.776
24-1:15 For,3588 lo,2009 I will call7121 all3605 the families4940 of the kingdoms4467 of the north,6828 saith5002 the LORD;3068 and they shall come,935 and they shall set5414 every one376 his throne3678 at the entering6607 of the gates8179 of Jerusalem,3389 and against5921 all3605 the walls2346 thereof round about,5439 and against5921 all3605 the cities5892 of Judah.3063
24-1:16 And I will utter1696 my judgments4941 against them touching5921 all3605 their wickedness,7451 who834 have forsaken5800 me, and have burned incense6999 unto other312 gods,430 and worshiped7812 the works4639 of their own hands.3027
24-1:17 Thou859 therefore gird up247 thy loins,4975 and arise,6965 and speak1696 unto413 them (853) all3605 that834 I595 command6680 thee: be not408 dismayed2865 at their faces,4480, 6440 lest6435 I confound2865 thee before6440 them.
24-1:18 For,589 behold,2009 I have made5414 thee this day3117 a defensed4013 city,5892 and an iron1270 pillar,5982 and brazen5178 walls2346 against5921 the whole3605 land,776 against the kings4428 of Judah,3063 against the princes8269 thereof, against the priests3548 thereof, and against the people5971 of the land.776
24-1:19 And they shall fight3898 against413 thee; but they shall not3808 prevail3201 against thee; for3588 I589 am with854 thee, saith5002 the LORD,3068 to deliver5337 thee.
Chapter 2:37 Verses
24-2:1 Moreover the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 to413 me, saying,559
24-2:2 Go1980 and cry7121 in the ears241 of Jerusalem,3389 saying,559 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD;3068 I remember2142 thee, the kindness2617 of thy youth,5271 the love160 of thine espousals,3623 when thou wentest1980 after310 me in the wilderness,4057 in a land776 that was not3808 sown.2232
24-2:3 Israel3478 was holiness6944 unto the LORD,3068 and the firstfruits7225 of his increase:8393 all3605 that devour398 him shall offend;816 evil7451 shall come935 upon413 them, saith5002 the LORD.3068
24-2:4 Hear8085 ye the word1697 of the LORD,3068 O house1004 of Jacob,3290 and all3605 the families4940 of the house1004 of Israel:3478
24-2:5 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 What4100 iniquity5766 have your fathers1 found4672 in me, that3588 they are gone far7368 from4480, 5921 me, and have walked1980 after310 vanity,1892 and are become vain?1891
24-2:6 Neither3808 said559 they, Where346 is the LORD3068 that brought us up5927, (853) out of the land4480, 776 of Egypt,4714 that led1980 us through the wilderness,4057 through a land776 of deserts6160 and of pits,7745 through a land776 of drought,6723 and of the shadow of death,6757 through a land776 that no3808 man376 passed through,5674 and where8033 no3808 man120 dwelt?3427
24-2:7 And I brought935 you into413 a plentiful3759 country,776 to eat398 the fruit6529 thereof and the goodness2898 thereof; but when ye entered,935 ye defiled2930 (853) my land,776 and made7760 mine heritage5159 an abomination.8441
24-2:8 The priests3548 said559 not,3808 Where346 is the LORD?3068 and they that handle8610 the law8451 knew3045 me not:3808 the pastors7462 also transgressed6586 against me, and the prophets5030 prophesied5012 by Baal,1168 and walked1980 after310 things that do not3808 profit.3276
24-2:9 Wherefore3651 I will yet5750 plead7378 with854 you, saith5002 the LORD,3068 and with854 your children's1121 children1121 will I plead.7378
24-2:10 For3588 pass over5674 the isles339 of Chittim,3794 and see;7200 and send7971 unto Kedar,6938 and consider995 diligently,3966 and see7200 if there be1961 such2063 a thing.
24-2:11 Hath a nation1471 changed4171 their gods,430 which1992 are yet no3808 gods?430 but my people5971 have changed4171 their glory3519 for that which doth not3808 profit.3276
24-2:12 Be astonished,8074 O ye heavens,8064 at5921 this,2063 and be horribly afraid,8175 be ye very3966 desolate,2717 saith5002 the LORD.3068
24-2:13 For3588 my people5971 have committed6213 two8147 evils;7451 they have forsaken5800 me the fountain4726 of living2416 waters,4325 and hewed them out2672 cisterns,877 broken7665 cisterns,877 that834 can hold3557 no3808 water.4325
24-2:14 Is Israel3478 a servant?5650 is he1931 a homeborn1004, 3211 slave? why4069 is1961 he spoiled?957
24-2:15 The young lions3715 roared7580 upon5921 him, and yelled,5414, 6963 and they made7896 his land776 waste:8047 his cities5892 are burned3341 without4480, 1097 inhabitant.3427
24-2:16 Also1571 the children1121 of Noph5297 and Tahapanes8471 have broken7462 the crown of thy head.6936
24-2:17 Hast thou not3808 procured6213 this2063 unto thyself, in that thou hast forsaken5800 (853) the LORD3068 thy God,430 when6256 he led1980 thee by the way?1870
24-2:18 And now6258 what4100 hast thou to do in the way1870 of Egypt,4714 to drink8354 the waters4325 of Sihor?7883 or what4100 hast thou to do in the way1870 of Assyria,804 to drink8354 the waters4325 of the river?5104
24-2:19 Thine own wickedness7451 shall correct3256 thee, and thy backslidings4878 shall reprove3198 thee: know3045 therefore and see7200 that3588 it is an evil7451 thing and bitter,4751 that thou hast forsaken5800 (853) the LORD3068 thy God,430 and that my fear6345 is not3808 in413 thee, saith5002 the Lord136 GOD3069 of hosts.6635
24-2:20 For3588 of old time4480, 5769 I have broken7665 thy yoke,5923 and burst5423 thy bands;4147 and thou saidst,559 I will not3808 transgress;5674 when3588 upon5921 every3605 high1364 hill1389 and under8478 every3605 green7488 tree6086 thou859 wanderest,6808 playing the harlot.2181
24-2:21 Yet I595 had planted5193 thee a noble vine,8321 wholly3605 a right571 seed:2233 how349 then art thou turned2015 into the degenerate5494 plant of a strange5237 vine1612 unto me?
24-2:22 For3588 though518 thou wash3526 thee with niter,5427 and take thee much7235 soap,1287 yet thine iniquity5771 is marked3799 before6440 me, saith5002 the Lord136 GOD.3069
24-2:23 How349 canst thou say,559 I am not3808 polluted,2930 I have not3808 gone1980 after310 Baalim?1168 see7200 thy way1870 in the valley,1516 know3045 what4100 thou hast done:6213 thou art a swift7031 dromedary1072 traversing8308 her ways;1870
24-2:24 A wild ass6501 used3928 to the wilderness,4057 that snuffeth up7602 the wind7307 at her pleasure;185, 5315 in her occasion8385 who4310 can turn her away?7725 all3605 they that seek1245 her will not3808 weary3286 themselves; in her month2320 they shall find4672 her.
24-2:25 Withhold4513 thy foot7272 from being unshod,4480, 3182 and thy throat1627 from thirst:4480, 6773 but thou saidst,559 There is no hope:2976 no;3808 for3588 I have loved157 strangers,2114 and after310 them will I go.1980
24-2:26 As the thief1590 is ashamed1322 when3588 he is found,4672 so3651 is the house1004 of Israel3478 ashamed;954 they,1992 their kings,4428 their princes,8269 and their priests,3548 and their prophets,5030
24-2:27 Saying559 to a stock,6086 Thou859 art my father;1 and to a stone,68 Thou859 hast brought me forth:3205 for3588 they have turned6437 their back6203 unto413 me, and not3808 their face:6440 but in the time6256 of their trouble7451 they will say,559 Arise,6965 and save3467 us.
24-2:28 But where346 are thy gods430 that834 thou hast made6213 thee? let them arise,6965 if518 they can save3467 thee in the time6256 of thy trouble:7451 for3588 according to the number4557 of thy cities5892 are1961 thy gods,430 O Judah.3063
24-2:29 Wherefore4100 will ye plead7378 with413 me? ye all3605 have transgressed6586 against me, saith5002 the LORD.3068
24-2:30 In vain7723 have I smitten5221 (853) your children;1121 they received3947 no3808 correction:4148 your own sword2719 hath devoured398 your prophets,5030 like a destroying7843 lion.738
24-2:31 O generation,1755 see7200 ye859 the word1697 of the LORD.3068 Have I been1961 a wilderness4057 unto Israel?3478 a land776 of darkness?3991 wherefore4069 say559 my people,5971 We are lords;7300 we will come935 no3808 more5750 unto413 thee?
24-2:32 Can a maid1330 forget7911 her ornaments,5716 or a bride3618 her attire?7196 yet my people5971 have forgotten7911 me days3117 without369 number.4557
24-2:33 Why4100 trimmest3190 thou thy way1870 to seek1245 love?160 therefore3651 hast thou also1571 taught3925 (853) the wicked ones7451 (853) thy ways.1870
24-2:34 Also1571 in thy skirts3671 is found4672 the blood1818 of the souls5315 of the poor34 innocents:5355 I have not3808 found4672 it by secret search,4290 but3588 upon5921 all3605 these.428
24-2:35 Yet thou sayest,559 Because3588 I am innocent,5352 surely389 his anger639 shall turn7725 from4480 me. Behold,2009 I will plead with8199 thee, because5921 thou sayest,559 I have not3808 sinned.2398
24-2:36 Why4100 gaddest235 thou about so much3966 to change8138 (853) thy way?1870 thou also1571 shalt be ashamed954 of Egypt,4480, 4714 as834 thou wast ashamed954 of Assyria.4480, 804
24-2:37 Yea,1571 thou shalt go forth3318 from4480, 854 him,2088 and thine hands3027 upon5921 thine head:7218 for3588 the LORD3068 hath rejected3988 thy confidences,4009 and thou shalt not3808 prosper6743 in them.
Chapter 3:25 Verses
24-3:1 They say,559 If2005 a man376 put away7971 (853) his wife,802 and she go1980 from4480, 854 him, and become1961 another312 man's,376 shall he return7725 unto413 her again?5750 shall not3808 that1931 land776 be greatly polluted?2610, 2610 but thou859 hast played the harlot2181 with many7227 lovers;7453 yet return7725 again to413 me, saith5002 the LORD.3068
24-3:2 Lift up5375 thine eyes5869 unto5921 the high places,8205 and see7200 where375 thou hast not3808 been lain7901 with. In5921 the ways1870 hast thou sat3427 for them, as the Arabian6163 in the wilderness;4057 and thou hast polluted2610 the land776 with thy whoredoms2184 and with thy wickedness.7451
24-3:3 Therefore the showers7241 have been withheld,4513 and there hath been1961 no3808 latter rain;4456 and thou hadst a whore's802, 2181 forehead,4696 thou refusedst3985 to be ashamed.3637
24-3:4 Wilt thou not3808 from this time4480, 6258 cry7121 unto me, My father,1 thou859 art the guide441 of my youth?5271
24-3:5 Will he reserve5201 his anger forever?5769 will he keep8104 it to the end?5331 Behold,2009 thou hast spoken1696 and done6213 evil things7451 as thou couldest.3201
24-3:6 The LORD3068 said559 also unto413 me in the days3117 of Josiah2977 the king,4428 Hast thou seen7200 that which834 backsliding4878 Israel3478 hath done?6213 she1931 is gone up1980 upon5921 every3605 high1364 mountain2022 and under8478 every3605 green7488 tree,6086 and there8033 hath played the harlot.2181
24-3:7 And I said559 after310 she had done6213 (853) all3605 these428 things, Turn7725 thou unto413 me. But she returned7725 not.3808 And her treacherous901 sister269 Judah3063 saw7200 it.
24-3:8 And I saw,7200 when3588 for5921 all3605 the causes182 whereby834 backsliding4878 Israel3478 committed adultery5003 I had put her away,7971 and given5414, 413 her (853) a bill5612 of divorce;3748 yet her treacherous898 sister269 Judah3063 feared3372 not,3808 but went1980 and played the harlot2181 also.1571
24-3:9 And it came to pass1961 through the lightness4480, 6963 of her whoredom,2184 that she defiled2610 (853) the land,776 and committed adultery5003 with854 stones68 and with854 stocks.6086
24-3:10 And yet1571 for all3605 this2063 her treacherous901 sister269 Judah3063 hath not3808 turned7725 unto413 me with her whole3605 heart,3820 but3588, 518 feignedly,8267 saith5002 the LORD.3068
24-3:11 And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 me, The backsliding4878 Israel3478 hath justified6663 herself5315 more than treacherous4480, 898 Judah.3063
24-3:12 Go1980 and proclaim7121 (853) these428 words1697 toward the north,6828 and say,559 Return,7725 thou backsliding4878 Israel,3478 saith5002 the LORD;3068 and I will not3808 cause mine anger6440 to fall5307 upon you: for3588 I589 am merciful,2623 saith5002 the LORD,3068 and I will not3808 keep5201 anger forever.5769
24-3:13 Only389 acknowledge3045 thine iniquity,5771 that3588 thou hast transgressed6586 against the LORD3068 thy God,430 and hast scattered6340 (853) thy ways1870 to the strangers2114 under8478 every3605 green7488 tree,6086 and ye have not3808 obeyed8085 my voice,6963 saith5002 the LORD.3068
24-3:14 Turn,7725 O backsliding7726 children,1121 saith5002 the LORD;3068 for3588 I595 am married1166 unto you: and I will take3947 you one259 of a city,4480, 5892 and two8147 of a family,4480, 4940 and I will bring935 you to Zion:6726
24-3:15 And I will give5414 you pastors7462 according to mine heart,3820 which shall feed7462 you with knowledge1844 and understanding.7919
24-3:16 And it shall come to pass,1961 when3588 ye be multiplied7235 and increased6509 in the land,776 in those1992 days,3117 saith5002 the LORD,3068 they shall say559 no3808 more,5750 The ark727 of the covenant1285 of the LORD:3068 neither3808 shall it come5927 to5921 mind:3820 neither3808 shall they remember2142 it; neither3808 shall they visit6485 it; neither3808 shall that be done6213 any more.5750
24-3:17 At that1931 time6256 they shall call7121 Jerusalem3389 the throne3678 of the LORD;3068 and all3605 the nations1471 shall be gathered6960 unto413 it, to the name8034 of the LORD,3068 to Jerusalem:3389 neither3808 shall they walk1980 any more5750 after310 the imagination8307 of their evil7451 heart.3820
24-3:18 In those1992 days3117 the house1004 of Judah3063 shall walk1980 with5921 the house1004 of Israel,3478 and they shall come935 together3162 out of the land4480, 776 of the north6828 to5921 the land776 that834 I have given for an inheritance5157 unto (853) your fathers.1
24-3:19 But I595 said,559 How349 shall I put7896 thee among the children,1121 and give5414 thee a pleasant2532 land,776 a goodly6643 heritage5159 of the hosts6635 of nations?1471 and I said,559 Thou shalt call7121 me, My father;1 and shalt not3808 turn away7725 from4480, 310 me.
24-3:20 Surely403 as a wife802 treacherously departeth898 from her husband,4480, 1167 so3651 have ye dealt treacherously898 with me, O house1004 of Israel,3478 saith5002 the LORD.3068

24-4:22 For3588 my people5971 is foolish,191 they have not3808 known3045 me; they1992 are sottish5530 children,1121 and they1992 have none3808 understanding:995 they1992 are wise2450 to do evil,7489 but to do good3190 they have no3808 knowledge.3045

24-4:29 The whole3605 city5892 shall flee1272 for the noise4480, 6963 of the horsemen6571 and bowmen;7411, 7198 they shall go935 into thickets,5645 and climb up5927 upon the rocks:3710 every3605 city5892 shall be forsaken,5800 and not369 a man376 dwell3427 therein.2004

24-5:2 And though518 they say,559 The LORD3068 liveth;2416 surely3651 they swear7650 falsely.8267
24-5:3 O LORD,3068 are not3808 thine eyes5869 upon the truth?530 thou hast stricken5221 them, but they have not3808 grieved;2342 thou hast consumed3615 them, but they have refused3985 to receive3947 correction:4148 they have made their faces6440 harder2388 than a rock;4480, 5553 they have refused3985 to return.7725
24-5:4 Therefore I589 said,559 Surely389 these1992 are poor;1800 they are foolish:2973 for3588 they know3045 not3808 the way1870 of the LORD,3068 nor the judgment4941 of their God.430
24-5:5 I will get1980 me unto413 the great men,1419 and will speak unto1696 them; for3588 they1992 have known3045 the way1870 of the LORD,3068 and the judgment4941 of their God:430 but389 these1992 have altogether3162 broken7665 the yoke,5923 and burst5423 the bonds.4147
24-5:6 Wherefore5921, 3651 a lion738 out of the forest4480, 3293 shall slay5221 them, and a wolf2061 of the evenings6160 shall spoil7703 them, a leopard5246 shall watch8245 over5921 their cities:5892 every one3605 that goeth out3318 thence4480, 2007 shall be torn in pieces:2963 because3588 their transgressions6588 are many,7231 and their backslidings4878 are increased.6105
24-5:7 How335 shall I pardon5545 thee for this?2063 thy children1121 have forsaken5800 me, and sworn7650 by them that are no3808 gods:430 when I had fed them to the full,7646, (853) they then committed adultery,5003 and assembled themselves1413 by troops in the harlots2181 houses.1004
24-5:8 They were1961 as fed2109 horses5483 in the morning:7904 every one376 neighed6670 after413 his neighbor's7453 wife.802
24-5:9 Shall I not3808 visit6485 for5921 these428 things? saith5002 the LORD:3068 and518 shall not3808 my soul5315 be avenged5358 on such834 a nation1471 as this?2088
24-5:10 Go ye up5927 upon her walls,8284 and destroy;7843 but make6213 not408 a full end:3617 take away5493 her battlements;5189 for3588 they1992 are not3808 the LORD's.3068
24-5:11 For3588 the house1004 of Israel3478 and the house1004 of Judah3063 have dealt very treacherously898, 898 against me, saith5002 the LORD.3068
24-5:12 They have belied3584 the LORD,3068 and said,559 It is not3808 he;1931 neither3808 shall evil7451 come935 upon5921 us; neither3808 shall we see7200 sword2719 nor famine:7458
24-5:13 And the prophets5030 shall become1961 wind,7307 and the word1699 is not369 in them: thus3541 shall it be done6213 unto them.
24-5:14 Wherefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 God430 of hosts,6635 Because3282 ye speak1696 (853) this2088 word,1697 behold,2009 I will make5414 my words1697 in thy mouth6310 fire,784 and this2088 people5971 wood,6086 and it shall devour398 them.
24-5:15 Lo,2009 I will bring935 a nation1471 upon5921 you from far,4480, 4801 O house1004 of Israel,3478 saith5002 the LORD:3068 it1931 is a mighty386 nation,1471 it1931 is an ancient4480, 5769 nation,1471 a nation1471 whose language3956 thou knowest3045 not,3808 neither3808 understandest8085 what4100 they say.1696
24-5:16 Their quiver827 is as an open6605 sepulcher,6913 they are all3605 mighty men.1368
24-5:17 And they shall eat up398 thine harvest,7105 and thy bread,3899 which thy sons1121 and thy daughters1323 should eat:398 they shall eat up398 thy flocks6629 and thine herds:1241 they shall eat up398 thy vines1612 and thy fig trees:8384 they shall impoverish7567 thy fenced4013 cities,5892 wherein834 thou859 trustedst,982 with the sword.2719
24-5:18 Nevertheless1571 in those1992 days,3117 saith5002 the LORD,3068 I will not3808 make6213 a full end3617 with854 you.
24-5:19 And it shall come to pass,1961 when3588 ye shall say,559 Wherefore8478, 4100 doeth6213 the LORD3068 our God430 (853) all3605 these428 things unto us? then shalt thou answer559, 413 them, Like834 as ye have forsaken5800 me, and served5647 strange5236 gods430 in your land,776 so3651 shall ye serve5647 strangers2114 in a land776 that is not3808 yours.
24-5:20 Declare5046 this2063 in the house1004 of Jacob,3290 and publish8085 it in Judah,3063 saying,559
24-5:21 Hear8085 now4994 this,2063 O foolish5530 people,5971 and without369 understanding;3820 which have eyes,5869 and see7200 not;3808 which have ears,241 and hear8085 not:3808
24-5:22 Fear3372 ye not3808 me? saith5002 the LORD:3068 will ye not3808 tremble2342 at my presence,4480, 6440 which834 have placed7760 the sand2344 for the bound1366 of the sea3220 by a perpetual5769 decree,2706 that it cannot3808 pass5674 it: and though the waves1530 thereof toss themselves,1607 yet can they not3808 prevail;3201 though they roar,1993 yet can they not3808 pass over5674 it?
24-5:23 But this2088 people5971 hath1961 a revolting5637 and a rebellious4784 heart;3820 they are revolted5493 and gone.1980
24-5:24 Neither3808 say559 they in their heart,3824 Let us now4994 fear3372 (853) the LORD3068 our God,430 that giveth5414 rain,1653 both the former3138 and the latter,4456 in his season:6256 he reserveth8104 unto us the appointed2708 weeks7620 of the harvest.7105
24-5:25 Your iniquities5771 have turned away5186 these428 things, and your sins2403 have withheld4513 good2896 things from4480 you.

24-5:27 As a cage3619 is full4392 of birds,5775 so3651 are their houses1004 full4392 of deceit:4820 therefore5921, 3651 they are become great,1431 and waxen rich.6238
24-5:28 They are waxen fat,8080 they shine:6245 yea,1571 they overpass5674 the deeds1697 of the wicked:7451 they judge1777 not3808 the cause,1779 the cause1779 of the fatherless,3490 yet they prosper;6743 and the right4941 of the needy34 do they not3808 judge.8199

24-6:7 As a fountain953 casteth out6979 her waters,4325 so3651 she casteth6979 out her wickedness:7451 violence2555 and spoil7701 is heard8085 in her; before5921, 6440 me continually8548 is grief2483 and wounds.4347
24-6:8 Be thou instructed,3256 O Jerusalem,3389 lest6435 my soul5315 depart3363 from4480 thee; lest6435 I make7760 thee desolate,8077 a land776 not3808 inhabited.3427
