Jeremiah 45

Jeremiah 45

Assurance to Baruch
1The #Jer. 36:1, 4, 32word that Jeremiah the prophet spoke to #Jer. 32:12, 16; 43:3Baruch the son of Neriah, when he had written these words in a book at the instruction of Jeremiah, in the #Jer. 25:1; 36:1; 46:2fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, saying, 2“Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, to you, O Baruch: 3‘You said, “Woe is me now! For the Lord has added grief to my sorrow. I #Ps. 6:6; 69:3; (2 Cor. 4:1, 16; Gal. 6:9)fainted in my sighing, and I find no rest.” ’
4“Thus you shall say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord: “Behold, #Is. 5:5; Jer. 1:10; 11:17; 18:7–10; 31:28what I have built I will break down, and what I have planted I will pluck up, that is, this whole land. 5And do you seek great things for yourself? Do not seek them; for behold, #Jer. 25:17–26I will bring adversity on all flesh,” says the Lord. “But I will give your #Jer. 21:9; 38:2; 39:18life to you as a prize in all places, wherever you go.” ’ ”
