Jeremiah 16
1The word of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) came also unto me, saying,
2Youi shall not take youi a wife, neither shall youi have sons or daughters in this place.
3For thus says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) concerning the sons and concerning the daughters that are born in this place, and concerning their mothers that bore them, and concerning their fathers that begat (to be father of; be ancestor of) them in this land;
4They shall die of grievous deaths; they shall not be lamented; neither shall they be buried; [but] they shall be as dung upon the face of the earth: and they shall be consumed by the sword, and by famine; and their carcasses shall be meat for the fowls of heaven, and for the beasts of the earth.
5For thus says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), Enter not into the house of mourning, neither go to lament nor bemoan them: for I have taken away my peace from this people, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), [even] lovingkindness and mercies.
6Both the great and the small shall die in this land: they shall not be buried, neither shall [men] lament for them, nor cut themselves, nor make themselves bald for them:
7Neither shall [men] tear [themselves] for them in mourning, to comfort them for the dead; neither shall [men] give them the cup of consolation to drink for their father or for their mother.
8Youi shall not also go into the house of feasting, to sit with them to eat and to drink.
9For thus says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies], the God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]; Behold, I will cause to cease out of this place in your eyes, and in your days, the voice of gladness, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride.
10And it shall come to pass, when youi shall show this people all these words, and they shall say unto youi, For what reason has the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) pronounced all this great evil against us? or what [is] our iniquity? or what [is] our sin that we have committed against the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) our God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered]?
11Then shall youi say unto them, Because your fathers have forsaken me, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), and have walked after other gods, and have served them, and have worshipped them, and have forsaken me, and have not kept my Torah;
12And you2f have done worse than your fathers; for, behold, you2f walk everyone after the imagination of his evil heart, that they may not hearken unto me:
13Therefore will I cast you out of this land into a land that you2f know not, [neither] you2f nor your fathers; and there shall you2f serve other gods day and night; where I will not show you favour.
14Therefore, behold, the days come, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), that it shall no more be said, The Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) lives, that brought up the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] out of the land of Mitzrayim [Egypt - The Narrow Place];
15But, The Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) lives, that brought up the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] from the land of the north, and from all the lands to which he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.
16Behold, I will send for many fishers, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.
17For my eyes [are] upon all their ways: they are not hid from my face, neither is their iniquity hid from my eyes.
18And first I will recompense their iniquity and their sin double; because they have defiled my land, they have filled my inheritance with the carcasses of their detestable and abominable things.
19O Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto youi from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and [things] wherein [there is] no profit.
20Shall a man make gods unto himself, and they [are] no gods?
21Therefore, behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know my hand and my might; and they shall know that my name [is] The Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate).
