Jeremiah 13
1Thus says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) unto me, Go and get youi a linen belt, and put it upon youi waist, and put it not in water.
2So I got a belt according to the word of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), and put [it] on my waist.
3And the word of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) came unto me the second time, saying,
4Take the belt that youi have got, which [is] upon youri waist, and arise, go to Euphrates (to break forth, to gush), and hide it there in a hole of the rock.
5So I went, and hid it by Euphrates (to break forth, to gush), as the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) commanded me.
6And it came to pass after many days, that the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) said unto me, Arise, go to Euphrates (to break forth, to gush), and take the belt from there, which I commanded youi to hide there.
7Then I went to Euphrates (to break forth, to gush), and excavated, and took the belt from the place where I had hid it: and, behold, the belt was marred, it was profitable for nothing.
8Then the word of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) came unto me, saying,
9Thus says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), After this manner will I mar the pride of Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised], and the great pride of Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace].
10This evil people, which refuse to hear my words, which walk in the imagination of their heart, and walk after other gods, to serve them, and to worship them, shall even be as this belt, which is good for nothing.
11For as the belt cleaves to the waist of a man, so have I caused to cling to (hold onto; stick to) me the whole house of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] and the whole house of Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised], says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate); that they might be unto me for a people, and for a name, and for a praise, and for a glory: but they would not hear.
12Therefore youi shall speak unto them this word; Thus says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], Every bottle shall be filled with wine: and they shall say unto youi, Do we not certainly know that every bottle shall be filled with wine?
13Then shall youi say unto them, Thus says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), Behold, I will fill all the inhabitants of this land, even the kings that sit upon David’s [beloved]’s throne, and the priests, and the prophets, and all the inhabitants of Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace], with drunkenness.
14And I will dash them one against another, even the fathers and the sons together, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate): I will not pity, nor spare, nor have mercy, but destroy them.
15Hear you2f, and give ear; be not proud: for the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) has spoken.
16Give glory to the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) your God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], before he cause darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and, while you2f look for light, he turn it into the shadow of death, [and] make [it] gross darkness.
17But if you2f will not hear it, my soul shall weep in secret places for [your] pride; and my eye shall weep sore, and run down with tears, because the Lord-Yehōvah’s [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] flock is carried away captive.
18Say unto the king and to the queen, Humble yourselves, sit down: for your Principalities (rulers or their territory) shall come down, [even] the crown of your glory.
19The cities of the south shall be shut up, and none shall open [them]: Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised] shall be carried away captive all of it, it shall be wholly carried away captive.
20Lift up your eyes, and behold them that come from the north: where [is] the flock [that] was given youi, youri beautiful flock?
21What will youi say when he shall punish youi? for youi have taught them [to be] captains, [and] as chief over youi: shall not sorrows take youi, as a woman in travail?
22And if youi say in youri heart, For what reason come these things upon me? For the greatness of youi iniquity are youi skirts discovered, [and] youi heels made bore.
23Can the Cushi (Ethiopian) (Kushi [their blackness]) change his skin, or the leopard his spots? [then] may you2f also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.
24Therefore will I scatter them as the stubble that passes away by the wind of the wilderness.
25This [is] youri lot, the portion of youri measures from me, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate); because youi have forgotten me, and trusted in falsehood.
26Therefore will I discover (uncover; reveal; have first sight of) youri skirts upon youri face, that youri shame may appear.
27I have seen youri adulteries, and youri neighings, the lewdness of youri whoredom, [and] youi abominations on the hills in the fields. Woe unto youi, O Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace]! will youi not be made clean? when [shall it] once [be]?
