Jeremiah 45

A message to Baruch

1When Baruch son of Neriah wrote on a scroll the words Jeremiah the prophet dictated in the fourth year of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah, Jeremiah said this to Baruch: ‘This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says to you, Baruch: You said, “Woe to me! The Lord has added sorrow to my pain; I am worn out with groaning and find no rest.” But the Lord has told me to say to you, “This is what the Lord says: I will overthrow what I have built and uproot what I have planted, throughout the earth. Should you then seek great things for yourself? Do not seek them. For I will bring disaster on all people, declares the Lord, but wherever you go I will let you escape with your life.”’

耶利米書 45


1猶大王約西亞的兒子約雅敬執政第四年,尼利亞的兒子巴錄把耶利米口述的話寫在書卷上。耶利米說: 「巴錄啊,以色列的上帝耶和華說, 『你曾說,我真悲慘!因為耶和華使我痛上加痛,呻吟不止,身心疲憊,不得安寧。』 我要告訴你,耶和華說,『我必在整個大地上拆毀我所建立的,剷除我所栽培的。 你想為自己謀求大事嗎?不要謀求,因為我要給世人降下災禍。但不論你到哪裡,我必使你保住性命。這是耶和華說的。』」
