Jeremiah 25


25:1 The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the people of
 Judah in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of
 Judah, that [was] the first year of Nebuchadrezzar king of
 Babylon;
25:2 Which Jeremiah the prophet spoke to all the people of
 Judah, and to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying,
25:3 From the thirteenth year of Josiah the son of Amon king of
 Judah, even to this day, that [is] the three and twentieth
 year, the word of the LORD hath come to me, and I have spoken
 to you, rising early and speaking; but ye have not hearkened.
25:4 And the LORD hath sent to you all his servants the
 prophets, rising early and sending [them]; but ye have not
 hearkened, nor inclined your ear to hear.
25:5 They said, Turn ye again now every one from his evil way,
 and from the evil of your doings, and dwell in the land that
 the LORD hath given to you and to your fathers for ever and
 ever:
25:6 And go not after other gods to serve them, and to worship
 them, and provoke me not to anger with the works of your hands;
 and I will do you no hurt.
25:7 Yet ye have not hearkened to me, saith the LORD; that ye
 might provoke me to anger with the works of your hands to your
 own hurt.
25:8 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Because ye have not
 heard my words,
25:9 Behold, I will send and take all the families of the north,
 saith the LORD, and Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my
 servant, and will bring them against this land, and against its
 inhabitants, and against all these nations around, and will
 utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and a
 hissing, and perpetual desolations.
25:10 Moreover I will take from them the voice of mirth, and the
 voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice
 of the bride, the sound of the millstones, and the light of the
 candle.
25:11 And this whole land shall be a desolation, [and] an
 astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon
 seventy years.
25:12 And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are
 accomplished, [that] I will punish the king of Babylon, and
 that nation, saith the LORD, for their iniquity, and the land
 of the Chaldeans, and will make it perpetual desolations.
25:13 And I will bring upon that land all my words which I have
 pronounced against it, [even] all that is written in this book,
 which Jeremiah hath prophesied against all the nations.
25:14 For many nations and great kings shall reduce them to
 subjection also: and I will recompense them according to their
 deeds, and according to the works of their own hands.
25:15 For thus saith the LORD God of Israel to me; Take the wine
 cup of this fury at my hand, and cause all the nations, to whom
 I send thee, to drink it.
25:16 And they shall drink, and be moved, and enraged, because
 of the sword that I will send among them.
25:17 Then I took the cup at the LORD'S hand, and made all the
 nations to drink, to whom the LORD had sent me:
25:18 [To wit], Jerusalem, and the cities of Judah, and her
 kings, and her princes, to make them a desolation, an
 astonishment, a hissing, and a curse; as [it is] this day;
25:19 Pharaoh king of Egypt, and his servants, and his princes,
 and all his people;
25:20 And all the mingled people, and all the kings of the land
 of Uz, and all the kings of the land of the Philistines, and
 Ashkelon, and Azzah, and Ekron, and the remnant of Ashdod,
25:21 Edom, and Moab, and the children of Ammon,
25:22 And all the kings of Tyre, and all the kings of Zidon, and
 the kings of the isles which [are] beyond the sea,
25:23 Dedan, and Tema, and Buz, and all [that are] in the utmost
 corners,
25:24 And all the kings of Arabia, and all the kings of the
 mingled people that dwell in the desert,
25:25 And all the kings of Zimri, and all the kings of Elam, and
 all the kings of the Medes,
25:26 And all the kings of the north, far and near, one with
 another, and all the kingdoms of the world, which [are] upon
 the face of the earth: and the king of Sheshach shall drink
 after them.
25:27 Therefore thou shalt say to them, Thus saith the LORD of
 hosts, the God of Israel; Drink ye, and be drunken, and vomit,
 and fall, and rise no more, because of the sword which I will
 send among you.
25:28 And it shall be, if they refuse to take the cup at thy
 hand to drink, then shalt thou say to them, Thus saith the LORD
 of hosts; Ye shall certainly drink.
25:29 For lo, I begin to bring evil on the city which is called
 by my name, and should ye be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not
 be unpunished: for I will call for a sword upon all the
 inhabitants of the earth, saith the LORD of hosts.
25:30 Therefore prophesy thou against them all these words, and
 say to them, The LORD shall roar from on high, and utter his
 voice from his holy habitation; he shall mightily roar upon his
 habitation; he shall give a shout, as they that tread [the
 grapes], against all the inhabitants of the earth.
25:31 A noise shall come [even] to the ends of the earth; for
 the LORD hath a controversy with the nations, he will plead
 with all flesh; he will give them [that are] wicked to the
 sword, saith the LORD.
25:32 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth
 from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised
 from the borders of the earth.
25:33 And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from [one]
 end of the earth even to the [other] end of the earth: they
 shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall
 be dung upon the ground.
25:34 Howl, ye shepherds, and cry; and wallow yourselves [in the
 ashes], ye principal of the flock: for the days of your
 slaughter and of your dispersions are accomplished; and ye
 shall fall like a pleasant vessel.
25:35 And the shepherds shall have no way to flee, nor the
 principal of the flock to escape.
25:36 A voice of the cry of the shepherds, and a howling of the
 principal of the flock, [shall be heard]: for the LORD hath
 laid waste their pasture.
25:37 And the peaceable habitations are cut down, because of the
 fierce anger of the LORD.
25:38 He hath forsaken his covert, as the lion: for their land
 is desolate because of the fierceness of the oppressor, and
 because of his fierce anger.
