Jeremiah 17

17:1 The sin of Judah [is] written with a pen of iron, [and]
 with the point of a diamond: [it is] graven upon the table of
 their heart, and upon the horns of your altars;
17:2 Whilst their children remember their altars and their
 groves by the green trees upon the high hills.
17:3 O my mountain in the field, I will give thy substance [and]
 all thy treasures to the spoil, [and] thy high places for sin,
 throughout all thy borders.
17:4 And thou, even thyself, shall discontinue from thy heritage
 that I gave thee; and I will cause thee to serve thy enemies in
 the land which thou knowest not: for ye have kindled a fire in
 my anger, [which] shall burn for ever.
17:5 Thus saith the LORD; Cursed [be] the man that trusteth in
 man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from
 the LORD.
17:6 For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not
 see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in
 the wilderness, [in] a salt land and not inhabited.
17:7 Blessed [is] the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose
 hope the LORD is.
17:8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and [that]
 spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when
 heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be
 anxious in the year of drouth, neither shall cease from
 yielding fruit.
17:9 The heart [is] deceitful above all [things], and
 desperately wicked: who can know it?
17:10 I the LORD search the heart, [I] try the reins, even to
 give every man according to his ways, [and] according to the
 fruit of his doings.
17:11 [As] the partridge sitteth [on eggs], and hatcheth [them]
 not; [so] he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave
 them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool.
17:12 A glorious high throne from the beginning [is] the place
 of our sanctuary.
17:13 O LORD, the hope of Israel, all that forsake thee shall be
 ashamed, [and] they that depart from me shall be written in the
 earth, because they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of
 living waters.
17:14 Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I
 shall be saved: for thou [art] my praise.
17:15 Behold, they say to me, Where [is] the word of the LORD?
 let it come now.
17:16 As for me, I have not hastened from [being] a pastor to
 follow thee: neither have I desired the woeful day; thou
 knowest: that which was uttered by my lips was [right] before
17:17 Be not a terror to me: thou [art] my hope in the day of
17:18 Let them be confounded that persecute me, but let not me
 be confounded: let them be dismayed, but let not me be
 dismayed: bring upon them the day of evil, and destroy them
 with double destruction.
17:19 Thus said the LORD to me; Go and stand in the gate of the
 children of the people, by which the kings of Judah come in,
 and by which they go out, and in all the gates of Jerusalem;
17:20 And say to them, Hear ye the word of the LORD, ye kings of
 Judah, and all Judah, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem,
 that enter by these gates:
17:21 Thus saith the LORD; Take heed to yourselves, and bear no
 burden on the sabbath day, nor bring [it] in by the gates of
17:22 Neither carry forth a burden out of your houses on the
 sabbath day, neither do ye any work, but hallow ye the sabbath
 day, as I commanded your fathers.
17:23 But they obeyed not, neither inclined their ear, but made
 their neck stiff, that they might not hear, nor receive
17:24 And it shall come to pass, if ye diligently hearken to me,
 saith the LORD, to bring in no burden through the gates of this
 city on the sabbath day, but hallow the sabbath day, to do no
 work therein;
17:25 Then shall there enter into the gates of this city kings
 and princes sitting upon the throne of David, riding in
 chariots and on horses, they and their princes, the men of
 Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem: and this city shall
 remain for ever.
17:26 And they shall come from the cities of Judah, and from the
 places about Jerusalem, and from the land of Benjamin, and from
 the plain, and from the mountains, and from the south, bringing
 burnt-offerings, and sacrifices, and meat-offerings, and
 incense, and bringing sacrifices of praise, to the house of the
17:27 But if ye will not hearken to me to hallow the sabbath
 day, and not to bear a burden, even entering at the gates of
 Jerusalem on the sabbath day; then will I kindle a fire in its
 gates, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem, and it
 shall not be quenched.
