Jeremiah 35

35:1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD in the days
 of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, saying,
35:2 Go to the house of the Rechabites, and speak to them, and
 bring them into the house of the LORD, into one of the
 chambers, and give them wine to drink.
35:3 Then I took Jaazaniah the son of Jeremiah, the son of
 Habaziniah, and his brethren, and all his sons, and the whole
 house of the Rechabites;
35:4 And I brought them into the house of the LORD, into the
 chamber of the sons of Hanan, the son of Igdaliah, a man of
 God, who [was] by the chamber of the princes, which [was] above
 the chamber of Maaseiah the son of Shallum, the keeper of the
35:5 And I set before the sons of the house of the Rechabites
 pots full of wine, and cups, and I said to them, Drink ye wine.
35:6 But they said, We will drink no wine: for Jonadab the son
 of Rechab our father commanded us, saying, Ye shall drink no
 wine, [neither] ye, nor your sons for ever:
35:7 Neither shall ye build house, nor sow seed, nor plant
 vineyard, nor have [any]: but all your days ye shall dwell in
 tents; that ye may live many days in the land where ye [are]
35:8 Thus have we obeyed the voice of Jonadab the son of Rechab
 our father in all that he hath charged us, to drink no wine all
 our days, we, our wives, our sons, nor our daughters;
35:9 Nor to build houses for us to dwell in: neither have we
 vineyard, nor field, nor seed:
35:10 But we have dwelt in tents, and have obeyed, and done
 according to all that Jonadab our father commanded us.
35:11 But it came to pass, when Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon
 came up into the land, that we said, Come, and let us go to
 Jerusalem for fear of the army of the Chaldeans, and for fear
 of the army of the Syrians: so we dwell at Jerusalem.
35:12 Then came the word of the LORD to Jeremiah, saying,
35:13 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Go and
 tell the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, Will ye
 not receive instruction to hearken to my words? saith the LORD.
35:14 The words of Jonadab the son of Rechab, that he commanded
 his sons not to drink wine, are performed; for to this day they
 drink none, but obey their father's commandment:
 notwithstanding I have spoken to you, rising early and
 speaking; but ye hearkened not to me.
35:15 I have sent also to you all my servants the prophets,
 rising early and sending [them], saying, Return ye now every
 man from his evil way, and amend your doings, and go not after
 other gods to serve them, and ye shall dwell in the land which
 I have given to you and to your fathers: but ye have not
 inclined your ear, nor hearkened to me.
35:16 Because the sons of Jonadab the son of Rechab have
 performed the commandment of their father, which he commanded
 them; but this people hath not hearkened to me:
35:17 Therefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, the God of
 Israel; Behold, I will bring upon Judah and upon all the
 inhabitants of Jerusalem all the evil that I have pronounced
 against them; because I have spoken to them, but they have not
 heard; and I have called to them, but they have not answered.
35:18 And Jeremiah said to the house of the Rechabites, Thus
 saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Because ye have
 obeyed the commandment of Jonadab your father, and kept all his
 precepts, and done according to all that he hath commanded you:
35:19 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel;
 Jonadab the son of Rechab shall not want a man to stand before
 me for ever.
