Jeremiah 10 (WEBP)

[1] Hear the word which Yahweh speaks to you, house of Israel!
[2] Yahweh says, “Don’t learn the way of the nations, and don’t be dismayed at the signs of the sky; for the nations are dismayed at them.
[3] For the customs of the peoples are vanity; for one cuts a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman with the ax.
[4] They deck it with silver and with gold. They fasten it with nails and with hammers, so that it can’t move.
[5] They are like a palm tree, of turned work, and don’t speak. They must be carried, because they can’t move. Don’t be afraid of them; for they can’t do evil, neither is it in them to do good.”
[6] There is no one like you, Yahweh. You are great, and your name is great in might.
[7] Who shouldn’t fear you, King of the nations? For it belongs to you. Because among all the wise men of the nations, and in all their royal estate, there is no one like you.
[8] But they are together brutish and foolish, instructed by idols! It is just wood.
[9] There is silver beaten into plates, which is brought from Tarshish, and gold from Uphaz, the work of the engraver and of the hands of the goldsmith. Their clothing is blue and purple. They are all the work of skillful men.
[10] But Yahweh is the true God. He is the living God, and an everlasting King. At his wrath, the earth trembles. The nations aren’t able to withstand his indignation.
[11] “You shall say this to them: ‘The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth will perish from the earth, and from under the heavens.’ ”
[12] God has made the earth by his power. He has established the world by his wisdom, and by his understanding has he stretched out the heavens.
[13] When he utters his voice, the waters in the heavens roar, and he causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth. He makes lightnings for the rain, and brings the wind out of his treasuries.
[14] Every man has become brutish and without knowledge. Every goldsmith is disappointed by his engraved image; for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them.
[15] They are vanity, a work of delusion. In the time of their visitation they will perish.
[16] The portion of Jacob is not like these; for he is the maker of all things; and Israel is the tribe of his inheritance. Yahweh of Armies is his name.
[17] Gather up your wares out of the land, you who live under siege.
[18] For Yahweh says, “Behold, I will sling out the inhabitants of the land at this time, and will distress them, that they may feel it.”
[19] Woe is me because of my injury! My wound is serious; but I said, “Truly this is my grief, and I must bear it.”
[20] My tent has been destroyed, and all my cords are broken. My children have gone away from me, and they are no more. There is no one to spread my tent any more, to set up my curtains.
[21] For the shepherds have become brutish, and have not inquired of Yahweh. Therefore they have not prospered, and all their flocks have scattered.
[22] The voice of news, behold, it comes, and a great commotion out of the north country, to make the cities of Judah a desolation, a dwelling place of jackals.
[23] Yahweh, I know that the way of man is not in himself. It is not in man who walks to direct his steps.
[24] Yahweh, correct me, but gently; not in your anger, lest you reduce me to nothing.
[25] Pour out your wrath on the nations that don’t know you, and on the families that don’t call on your name; for they have devoured Jacob. Yes, they have devoured him, consumed him, and have laid waste his habitation.

Jeremiah 10 (KJVS)

[1] Hear H8085 (8798) ye the word H1697 which the LORD H3068 speaketh H1696 (8765) unto you, O house H1004 of Israel H3478:
[2] Thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068, Learn H3925 (8799) not the way H1870 of the heathen H1471, and be not dismayed H2865 (8735) at the signs H226 of heaven H8064; for the heathen H1471 are dismayed H2865 (8735) at them H1992.
[3] For the customs H2708 of the people H5971 [are] vain H1892: for [one] cutteth H3772 (8804) a tree H6086 out of the forest H3293, the work H4639 of the hands H3027 of the workman H2796, with the axe H4621.
[4] They deck H3302 (8762) it with silver H3701 and with gold H2091; they fasten H2388 (8762) it with nails H4548 and with hammers H4717, that it move H6328 (8686) not.
[5] They [are] upright H4749 as the palm tree H8560, but speak H1696 (8762) not: they must needs H5375 (8800) be borne H5375 (8735), because they cannot go H6805 (8799). Be not afraid H3372 (8799) of them; for they cannot do evil H7489 (8686), neither also [is it] in them to do good H3190 (8687).
[6] Forasmuch as [there is] none like unto thee, O LORD H3068; thou [art] great H1419, and thy name H8034 [is] great H1419 in might H1369.
[7] Who would not fear H3372 (8799) thee, O King H4428 of nations H1471? for to thee doth it appertain H2969 (8804): forasmuch as among all the wise H2450 [men] of the nations H1471, and in all their kingdoms H4438, [there is] none like unto thee.
[8] But they are altogether H259 brutish H1197 (8799) and foolish H3688 (8799): the stock H6086 [is] a doctrine H4148 of vanities H1892.
[9] Silver H3701 spread into plates H7554 (8794) is brought H935 (8714) from Tarshish H8659, and gold H2091 from Uphaz H210, the work H4639 of the workman H2796, and of the hands H3027 of the founder H6884 (8802): blue H8504 and purple H713 [is] their clothing H3830: they [are] all the work H4639 of cunning H2450 [men].
[10] But the LORD H3068 [is] the true H571 God H430, he [is] the living H2416 God H430, and an everlasting H5769 king H4428: at his wrath H7110 the earth H776 shall tremble H7493 (8799), and the nations H1471 shall not be able to abide H3557 (8686) his indignation H2195.
[11] Thus H1836 shall ye say H560 (8748) unto them, The gods H426 that have not H3809 made H5648 (8754) the heavens H8065 and the earth H778, [even] they shall perish H7 (8748) from the earth H772, and from under H8460 these H429 heavens H8065.
[12] He hath made H6213 (8802) the earth H776 by his power H3581, he hath established H3559 (8688) the world H8398 by his wisdom H2451, and hath stretched out H5186 (8804) the heavens H8064 by his discretion H8394.
[13] When he uttereth H5414 (8800) his voice H6963, [there is] a multitude H1995 of waters H4325 in the heavens H8064, and he causeth the vapours H5387 to ascend H5927 (8686) from the ends H7097 of the earth H776; he maketh H6213 (8804) lightnings H1300 with rain H4306, and bringeth forth H3318 (8686) the wind H7307 out of his treasures H214.
[14] Every man H120 is brutish H1197 (8738) in [his] knowledge H1847: every founder H6884 (8802) is confounded H3001 (8689) by the graven image H6459: for his molten image H5262 [is] falsehood H8267, and [there is] no breath H7307 in them.
[15] They [are] vanity H1892, [and] the work H4639 of errors H8595: in the time H6256 of their visitation H6486 they shall perish H6 (8799).
[16] The portion H2506 of Jacob H3290 [is] not like them: for he [is] the former H3335 (8802) of all [things]; and Israel H3478 [is] the rod H7626 of his inheritance H5159: The LORD H3068 of hosts H6635 [is] his name H8034.
[17] Gather up H622 (8798) thy wares H3666 out of the land H776, O inhabitant H3427 (8802) of the fortress H4692.
[18] For thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068, Behold, I will sling H7049 (8802) out the inhabitants H3427 (8802) of the land H776 at this once H6471, and will distress H6887 (8689) them, that they may find H4672 (8799) [it so].
[19] Woe H188 is me for my hurt H7667! my wound H4347 is grievous H2470 (8737): but I said H559 (8804), Truly H389 this [is] a grief H2483, and I must bear H5375 (8799) it.
[20] My tabernacle H168 is spoiled H7703 (8795), and all my cords H4340 are broken H5423 (8738): my children H1121 are gone forth H3318 (8804) of me, and they [are] not: [there is] none to stretch forth H5186 (8802) my tent H168 any more, and to set up H6965 (8688) my curtains H3407.
[21] For the pastors H7462 (8802) are become brutish H1197 (8738), and have not sought H1875 (8804) the LORD H3068: therefore they shall not prosper H7919 (8689), and all their flocks H4830 shall be scattered H6327 (8738).
[22] Behold, the noise H6963 of the bruit H8052 is come H935 (8802), and a great H1419 commotion H7494 out of the north H6828 country H776, to make H7760 (8800) the cities H5892 of Judah H3063 desolate H8077, [and] a den H4583 of dragons H8577.
[23] O LORD H3068, I know H3045 (8804) that the way H1870 of man H120 [is] not in himself: [it is] not in man H376 that walketh H1980 (8802) to direct H3559 (8687) his steps H6806.
[24] O LORD H3068, correct H3256 (8761) me, but with judgment H4941; not in thine anger H639, lest thou bring me to nothing H4591 (8686).
[25] Pour out H8210 (8798) thy fury H2534 upon the heathen H1471 that know H3045 (8804) thee not, and upon the families H4940 that call H7121 (8804) not on thy name H8034: for they have eaten up H398 (8804) Jacob H3290, and devoured H398 (8804) him, and consumed H3615 (8762) him, and have made his habitation H5116 desolate H8074 (8689).

Young’s Literal Translation

Jeremiah 10 (YLT)

[1] Hear ye the word, O house of Israel, That Jehovah hath spoken for you.
[2] Thus said Jehovah: Unto the way of the nations accustom not yourselves, And by the signs of the heavens be not affrighted, For the nations are affrighted by them.
[3] For the statutes of the peoples are vanity, For a tree from a forest hath one cut, Work of the hands of an artificer, with an axe,
[4] With silver and with gold they beautify it, With nails and with hammers they fix it, And it doth not stumble.
[5] As a palm they are stiff, and they speak not, They are surely borne, for they step not, Be not afraid of them, for they do no evil, Yea, also to do good is not in them.
[6] Because there is none like Thee, O Jehovah, Great art Thou, and great Thy name in might.
[7] Who doth not fear Thee, king of the nations? For to Thee it is becoming, For among all the wise of the nations, And in all their kingdom there is none like Thee.
[8] And in one they are brutish and foolish, An instruction of vanities is the tree itself.
[9] Spread-out silver from Tarshish is brought, And gold from Uphaz, Work of an artisan, and of the hands of a refiner, Blue and purple is their clothing, Work of the skilful-all of them.
[10] And Jehovah is a God of truth, He is a living God, and a king age-during, From His wrath shake doth the earth, And nations endure not His indignation.
[11] Thus do ye say to them, The gods Who the heavens and earth have not made, They do perish from the earth, And from under these heavens.
[12] The maker of the earth by His power, The establisher of the world by His wisdom, Who, by His understanding, stretched forth the heavens,
[13] At the voice He giveth forth, A multitude of waters is in the heavens, And He causeth vapours to come up from the end of the earth, Lightnings for rain He hath made, And bringeth out wind from His treasures.
[14] Brutish is every man by knowledge, Put to shame is every refiner by a graven image, For false is his molten image. And there is no breath in them.
[15] Vanity are they, work of erring ones, In the time of their inspection they perish.
[16] Not like these is the Portion of Jacob, For framer of all things is He, And Israel is the rod of His inheritance, Jehovah of Hosts is His name.
[17] Gather from the land thy merchandise, O dweller in the bulwark,
[18] For thus said Jehovah: Lo, I am slinging out the inhabitants of the land at this time, And have been an adversary to them, So that they are found out.
[19] Woe to me for my breaking, Grievious hath been my smiting, And I said, Only, this is my sickness, and I bear it.
[20] My tent hath been spoiled, And all my cords have been broken, My sons have gone out from me, and they are not, There is none stretching out any more my tent, And raising up my curtains.
[21] For the shepherds have become brutish, And Jehovah they have not sought, Therefore they have not acted wisely, And all their flock is scattered.
[22] A voice of a report, lo, it hath come, Even a great shaking from the north country, To make the cities of Judah a desolation, A habitation of dragons.
[23] I have known, O Jehovah, that not of man is his way, Not of man the going and establishing of his step.
[24] Chastise me, O Jehovah, only in judgment, Not in Thine anger, lest Thou make me small.
[25] Pour out Thy fury on the nations that have not known Thee, And on the families that have not called in Thy name, For they have eaten up Jacob, Yea, they have eaten him up, yea, they consume him, And his habitation they have made desolate!
