Jeremiah 24

24:1 The LORD showed me, and behold, two baskets of figs [were]
 set before the temple of the LORD, after Nebuchadrezzar king of
 Babylon had carried away captive Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim,
 king of Judah, and the princes of Judah, with the carpenters
 and smiths, from Jerusalem, and had brought them to Babylon.
24:2 One basket [had] very good figs, [even] like the figs [that
 are] first ripe: and the other basket [had] very poor figs,
 which could not be eaten, they were so bad.
24:3 Then said the LORD to me, What seest thou, Jeremiah? and I
 said, Figs; the good figs, very good; and the bad, very bad,
 that cannot be eaten, they are so bad.
24:4 Again the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
24:5 Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these good
 figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive
 of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of
 the Chaldeans for [their] good.
24:6 For I will set my eyes upon them for good, and I will bring
 them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull
 [them] down; and I will plant them, and not pluck [them] up.
24:7 And I will give them a heart to know me, that I [am] the
 LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for
 they shall return to me with their whole heart.
24:8 And as the bad figs, which cannot be eaten, they are so
 bad; surely thus saith the LORD, So will I give Zedekiah the
 king of Judah, and his princes, and the residue of Jerusalem,
 that remain in this land, and them that dwell in the land of
24:9 And I will deliver them to be removed into all the kingdoms
 of the earth for [their] hurt, [to be] a reproach and a
 proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places whither I shall
 drive them.
24:10 And I will send the sword, the famine, and the pestilence,
 among them, till they are consumed from off the land that I
 gave to them and to their fathers.
