2to whom the word of the LORD came in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah, in the thirteenth year of his reign.2The word of the LORD came to Jeremiah in the thirteenth year of the reign of Josiah son of Amon king of Judah,
3It came also in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, until the end of the eleventh year of Zedekiah the son of Josiah, king of Judah, until the exile of Jerusalem in the fifth month.3and through the days of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah, until the fifth month of the eleventh year of Zedekiah son of Josiah king of Judah, when the people of Jerusalem went into exile.
4Now the word of the LORD came to me saying,4The word of the LORD came to me, saying:
5"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations."5“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
6Then I said, "Alas, Lord GOD! Behold, I do not know how to speak, Because I am a youth."6“Ah, Lord GOD,” I said, “I surely do not know how to speak, for I am only a child!”
7But the LORD said to me, "Do not say, 'I am a youth,' Because everywhere I send you, you shall go, And all that I command you, you shall speak.7But the LORD told me: “Do not say, ’I am only a child.’ For to everyone I send you, you must go, and all that I command you, you must speak.
8"Do not be afraid of them, For I am with you to deliver you," declares the LORD.8Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you,” declares the LORD.
9Then the LORD stretched out His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me, "Behold, I have put My words in your mouth.9Then the LORD reached out His hand, touched my mouth, and said to me: “Behold, I have put My words into your mouth.
10"See, I have appointed you this day over the nations and over the kingdoms, To pluck up and to break down, To destroy and to overthrow, To build and to plant."10See, I have appointed you today over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and plant.”
11The word of the LORD came to me saying, "What do you see, Jeremiah?" And I said, "I see a rod of an almond tree."11And the word of the LORD came to me, asking, “Jeremiah, what do you see?” “I see a branch of an almond tree,” I replied.
12Then the LORD said to me, "You have seen well, for I am watching over My word to perform it."12“You have observed correctly,” said the LORD, “for I am watching over My word to accomplish it.”
13The word of the LORD came to me a second time saying, "What do you see?" And I said, "I see a boiling pot, facing away from the north."13Again the word of the LORD came to me, asking, “What do you see?” “I see a boiling pot,” I replied, “and it is tilting toward us from the north.”
14Then the LORD said to me, "Out of the north the evil will break forth on all the inhabitants of the land.14Then the LORD said to me, “Disaster from the north will be poured out on all who live in the land.
15"For, behold, I am calling all the families of the kingdoms of the north," declares the LORD; "and they will come and they will set each one his throne at the entrance of the gates of Jerusalem, and against all its walls round about and against all the cities of Judah.15For I am about to summon all the clans and kingdoms of the north,” declares the LORD. “Their kings will come and set up their thrones at the entrance to Jerusalem’s gates. They will attack all her surrounding walls and all the other cities of Judah.
16"I will pronounce My judgments on them concerning all their wickedness, whereby they have forsaken Me and have offered sacrifices to other gods, and worshiped the works of their own hands.16I will pronounce My judgments against them for all their wickedness, because they have forsaken Me to burn incense to other gods and to worship the works of their own hands.
17"Now, gird up your loins and arise, and speak to them all which I command you. Do not be dismayed before them, or I will dismay you before them.17Get yourself ready. Stand up and tell them everything that I command you. Do not be intimidated by them, or I will terrify you before them.
18"Now behold, I have made you today as a fortified city and as a pillar of iron and as walls of bronze against the whole land, to the kings of Judah, to its princes, to its priests and to the people of the land.18Now behold, this day I have made you a fortified city, an iron pillar, and bronze walls against the whole land—against the kings of Judah, its officials, its priests, and the people of the land.
19"They will fight against you, but they will not overcome you, for I am with you to deliver you," declares the LORD.19They will fight against you but will never overcome you, since I am with you to deliver you,” declares the LORD.
