Jeremiah 17 (WEBP)

[1] “The sin of Judah is written with a pen of iron, and with the point of a diamond. It is engraved on the tablet of their heart, and on the horns of your altars.
[2] Even their children remember their altars and their Asherah poles by the green trees on the high hills.
[3] My mountain in the field, I will give your substance and all your treasures for a plunder, and your high places, because of sin, throughout all your borders.
[4] You, even of yourself, will discontinue from your heritage that I gave you. I will cause you to serve your enemies in the land which you don’t know, for you have kindled a fire in my anger which will burn forever.”
[5] Yahweh says: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man, relies on strength of flesh, and whose heart departs from Yahweh.
[6] For he will be like a bush in the desert, and will not see when good comes, but will inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, an uninhabited salt land.
[7] “Blessed is the man who trusts in Yahweh, and whose confidence is in Yahweh.
[8] For he will be as a tree planted by the waters, who spreads out its roots by the river, and will not fear when heat comes, but its leaf will be green, and will not be concerned in the year of drought. It won’t cease from yielding fruit.
[9] The heart is deceitful above all things and it is exceedingly corrupt. Who can know it?
[10] “I, Yahweh, search the mind. I try the heart, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.”
[11] As the partridge that sits on eggs which she has not laid, so is he who gets riches, and not by right. In the middle of his days, they will leave him. At his end, he will be a fool.
[12] A glorious throne, set on high from the beginning, is the place of our sanctuary.
[13] Yahweh, the hope of Israel, all who forsake you will be disappointed. Those who depart from me will be written in the earth, because they have forsaken Yahweh, the spring of living waters.
[14] Heal me, O Yahweh, and I will be healed. Save me, and I will be saved; for you are my praise.
[15] Behold, they ask me, “Where is Yahweh’s word? Let it be fulfilled now.”
[16] As for me, I have not hurried from being a shepherd after you. I haven’t desired the woeful day. You know. That which came out of my lips was before your face.
[17] Don’t be a terror to me. You are my refuge in the day of evil.
[18] Let them be disappointed who persecute me, but don’t let me be disappointed. Let them be dismayed, but don’t let me be dismayed. Bring on them the day of evil, and destroy them with double destruction.
[19] Yahweh said this to me: “Go and stand in the gate of the children of the people, through which the kings of Judah come in and by which they go out, and in all the gates of Jerusalem.
[20] Tell them, ‘Hear Yahweh’s word, you kings of Judah, all Judah, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, that enter in by these gates:
[21] Yahweh says, “Be careful, and bear no burden on the Sabbath day, nor bring it in by the gates of Jerusalem.
[22] Don’t carry a burden out of your houses on the Sabbath day. Don’t do any work, but make the Sabbath day holy, as I commanded your fathers.
[23] But they didn’t listen. They didn’t turn their ear, but made their neck stiff, that they might not hear, and might not receive instruction.
[24] It will happen, if you diligently listen to me,” says Yahweh, “to bring in no burden through the gates of this city on the Sabbath day, but to make the Sabbath day holy, to do no work therein;
[25] then there will enter in by the gates of this city kings and princes sitting on David’s throne, riding in chariots and on horses, they and their princes, the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and this city will remain forever.
[26] They will come from the cities of Judah, and from the places around Jerusalem, from the land of Benjamin, from the lowland, from the hill country, and from the South, bringing burnt offerings, sacrifices, meal offerings, and frankincense, and bringing sacrifices of thanksgiving to Yahweh’s house.
[27] But if you will not listen to me to make the Sabbath day holy, and not to bear a burden and enter in at the gates of Jerusalem on the Sabbath day, then I will kindle a fire in its gates, and it will devour the palaces of Jerusalem. It will not be quenched.” ’ ”

Jeremiah 17 (KJVS)

[1] The sin H2403 of Judah H3063 [is] written H3789 (8803) with a pen H5842 of iron H1270, [and] with the point H6856 of a diamond H8068: [it is] graven H2790 (8803) upon the table H3871 of their heart H3820, and upon the horns H7161 of your altars H4196;
[2] Whilst their children H1121 remember H2142 (8800) their altars H4196 and their groves H842 by the green H7488 trees H6086 upon the high H1364 hills H1389.
[3] O my mountain H2042 in the field H7704, I will give H5414 (8799) thy substance H2428 [and] all thy treasures H214 to the spoil H957, [and] thy high places H1116 for sin H2403, throughout all thy borders H1366.
[4] And thou, even thyself, shalt discontinue H8058 (8804) from thine heritage H5159 that I gave H5414 (8804) thee; and I will cause thee to serve H5647 (8689) thine enemies H341 (8802) in the land H776 which thou knowest H3045 (8804) not: for ye have kindled H6919 (8804) a fire H784 in mine anger H639, [which] shall burn H3344 (8714) for H5704 ever H5769.
[5] Thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068; Cursed H779 (8803) [be] the man H1397 that trusteth H982 (8799) in man H120, and maketh H7760 (8804) flesh H1320 his arm H2220, and whose heart H3820 departeth H5493 (8799) from the LORD H3068.
[6] For he shall be like the heath H6199 in the desert H6160, and shall not see H7200 (8799) when good H2896 cometh H935 (8799); but shall inhabit H7931 (8804) the parched places H2788 in the wilderness H4057, [in] a salt H4420 land H776 and not inhabited H3427 (8799).
[7] Blessed H1288 (8803) [is] the man H1397 that trusteth H982 (8799) in the LORD H3068, and whose hope H4009 the LORD H3068 is.
[8] For he shall be as a tree H6086 planted H8362 (8803) by the waters H4325, and [that] spreadeth out H7971 (8762) her roots H8328 by the river H3105, and shall not see H7200 (8799) when heat H2527 cometh H935 (8799), but her leaf H5929 shall be green H7488; and shall not be careful H1672 (8799) in the year H8141 of drought H1226, neither shall cease H4185 (8686) from yielding H6213 (8800) fruit H6529.
[9] The heart H3820 [is] deceitful H6121 above all [things], and desperately wicked H605 (8803): who can know H3045 (8799) it?
[10] I the LORD H3068 search H2713 (8802) the heart H3820, [I] try H974 (8802) the reins H3629, even to give H5414 (8800) every man H376 according to his ways H1870, [and] according to the fruit H6529 of his doings H4611.
[11] [As] the partridge H7124 sitteth H1716 (8804) [on eggs], and hatcheth H3205 (8804) [them] not; [so] he that getteth H6213 (8802) riches H6239, and not by right H4941, shall leave H5800 (8799) them in the midst H2677 of his days H3117, and at his end H319 shall be a fool H5036.
[12] A glorious H3519 high H4791 throne H3678 from the beginning H7223 [is] the place H4725 of our sanctuary H4720.
[13] O LORD H3068, the hope H4723 of Israel H3478, all that forsake H5800 (8802) thee shall be ashamed H954 (8799), [and] they that depart H3249 from me H5493 (8803) shall be written H3789 (8735) in the earth H776, because they have forsaken H5800 (8804) the LORD H3068, the fountain H4726 of living H2416 waters H4325.
[14] Heal H7495 (8798) me, O LORD H3068, and I shall be healed H7495 (8735); save H3467 (8685) me, and I shall be saved H3467 (8735): for thou [art] my praise H8416.
[15] Behold, they say H559 (8802) unto me, Where [is] the word H1697 of the LORD H3068? let it come H935 (8799) now.
[16] As for me, I have not hastened H213 (8804) from [being] a pastor H7462 (8802) to follow H310 thee: neither have I desired H183 (8694) the woeful H605 (8803) day H3117; thou knowest H3045 (8804): that which came out H4161 of my lips H8193 was [right] before H5227 thee H6440.
[17] Be not a terror H4288 unto me: thou [art] my hope H4268 in the day H3117 of evil H7451.
[18] Let them be confounded H954 (8799) that persecute H7291 (8802) me, but let not me be confounded H954 (8799): let them be dismayed H2865 (8735), but let not me be dismayed H2865 (8735): bring H935 (8687) upon them the day H3117 of evil H7451, and destroy H7665 (8798) them with double H4932 destruction H7670.
[19] Thus said H559 (8804) the LORD H3068 unto me; Go H1980 (8800) and stand H5975 (8804) in the gate H8179 of the children H1121 of the people H5971, whereby the kings H4428 of Judah H3063 come in H935 (8799), and by the which they go out H3318 (8799), and in all the gates H8179 of Jerusalem H3389;
[20] And say H559 (8804) unto them, Hear H8085 (8798) ye the word H1697 of the LORD H3068, ye kings H4428 of Judah H3063, and all Judah H3063, and all the inhabitants H3427 (8802) of Jerusalem H3389, that enter in H935 (8802) by these gates H8179:
[21] Thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068; Take heed H8104 (8734) to yourselves H5315, and bear H5375 (8799) no burden H4853 on the sabbath H7676 day H3117, nor bring H935 (8689) [it] in by the gates H8179 of Jerusalem H3389;
[22] Neither carry forth H3318 (8686) a burden H4853 out of your houses H1004 on the sabbath H7676 day H3117, neither do H6213 (8799) ye any work H4399, but hallow H6942 (8765) ye the sabbath H7676 day H3117, as I commanded H6680 (8765) your fathers H1.
[23] But they obeyed H8085 (8804) not, neither inclined H5186 (8689) their ear H241, but made their neck H6203 stiff H7185 (8686), that they might not hear H8085 (8800), nor receive H3947 (8800) instruction H4148.
[24] And it shall come to pass, if ye diligently H8085 (8800) hearken H8085 (8799) unto me, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068, to bring H935 (8687) in no burden H4853 through the gates H8179 of this city H5892 on the sabbath H7676 day H3117, but hallow H6942 (8763) the sabbath H7676 day H3117, to do H6213 (8800) no H1115 work H4399 therein;
[25] Then shall there enter H935 (8804) into the gates H8179 of this city H5892 kings H4428 and princes H8269 sitting H3427 (8802) upon the throne H3678 of David H1732, riding H7392 (8802) in chariots H7393 and on horses H5483, they, and their princes H8269, the men H376 of Judah H3063, and the inhabitants H3427 (8802) of Jerusalem H3389: and this city H5892 shall remain H3427 (8804) for ever H5769.
[26] And they shall come H935 (8804) from the cities H5892 of Judah H3063, and from the places about H5439 Jerusalem H3389, and from the land H776 of Benjamin H1144, and from the plain H8219, and from the mountains H2022, and from the south H5045, bringing H935 (8688) burnt offerings H5930, and sacrifices H2077, and meat offerings H4503, and incense H3828, and bringing H935 (8688) sacrifices of praise H8426, unto the house H1004 of the LORD H3068.
[27] But if ye will not hearken H8085 (8799) unto me to hallow H6942 (8763) the sabbath H7676 day H3117, and not to bear H5375 (8800) a burden H4853, even entering in H935 (8800) at the gates H8179 of Jerusalem H3389 on the sabbath H7676 day H3117; then will I kindle H3341 (8689) a fire H784 in the gates H8179 thereof, and it shall devour H398 (8804) the palaces H759 of Jerusalem H3389, and it shall not be quenched H3518 (8799).

Young’s Literal Translation

Jeremiah 17 (YLT)

[1] The sin of Judah is written with a pen of iron, With the point of a diamond, Graven on the tablet of their heart, And on the horns of your altars,
[2] As their sons remember their altars and their shrines, By the green tree, by the high hills.
[3] O My mountain in the field-thy strength, All thy treasures-for a prey I give, Thy high places for sin in all thy borders.
[4] And thou hast let go-even through thyself, Of thine inheritance that I gave to thee, And I have caused thee to serve thine enemies, In a land that thou hast not known, For a fire ye have kindled in Mine anger, Unto the age it doth burn.
[5] Thus said Jehovah: Cursed is the man who doth trust in man, And hath made flesh his arm, And from Jehovah whose heart turneth.
[6] And he hath been as a naked thing in a desert, And doth not see when good cometh, And hath inhabited parched places in a wilderness, A salt land, and not inhabited.
[7] Blessed is the man who trusteth in Jehovah, And whose confidence hath been Jehovah.
[8] And hath been as a tree planted by waters, And by a rivulet he sendeth forth his roots, And he doth not see when heat cometh, And his leaf hath been green, And in a year of dearth he is not sorrowful, Nor doth he cease from making fruit.
[9] Crooked is the heart above all things, And it is incurable-who doth know it?
[10] I Jehovah do search the heart, try the reins, Even to give to each according to his way, According to the fruit of his doings.
[11] A partridge hatching, and not bringing forth, Is one making wealth, and not by right, In the midst of his days he doth forsake it, And in his latter end-he is a fool.
[12] A throne of honour on high from the beginning, The place of our sanctuary,
[13] The hope of Israel is Jehovah, All forsaking Thee are ashamed, And ‘My apostates’ in the earth are written, For they have forsaken Jehovah, A fountain of living waters.
[14] Heal me, O Jehovah, and I am healed, Save me, and I am saved, for my praise art Thou.
[15] Lo, they are saying unto me: ‘Where is the word of Jehovah? pray, let it come.’
[16] And I hastened not from feeding after Thee, And the desperate day I have not desired, Thou-Thou hast known, The produce of my lips, before Thy face it hath been,
[17] Be not Thou to me for a terror, My hope art Thou in a day of evil.
[18] Let my pursuers be ashamed, and let not me be ashamed-me! Let them be affrighted, and let not me be affrighted-me! Bring in on them a day of evil, And a second time with destruction destroy them.
[19] Thus said Jehovah unto me: ‘Go, and thou hast stood in the gate of the sons of the people, by which kings of Judah come in, and by which they go out, and in all gates of Jerusalem,
[20] and thou hast said unto them: Hear a word of Jehovah, ye kings of Judah, and all Judah, and all inhabitants of Jerusalem, who are coming in by these gates,
[21] Thus said Jehovah, Take ye heed to yourselves, And ye bear not a burden on the day of rest, Nor have ye brought it in by the gates of Jerusalem.
[22] Nor do ye take out a burden from your houses on the day of rest, Yea, any work ye do not do, And ye have sanctified the day of rest, As I have commanded your fathers.
[23] And they have not hearkened nor inclined their ear, And they stiffen their neck not to hear, And not to receive instruction.
[24] And it hath been, if ye certainly hearken unto Me, An affirmation of Jehovah, So as not to bring in a burden By the gates of this city on the day of rest, And to sanctify the day of rest, So as not to do in it any work-
[25] Then entered by the gates of this city have kings and princes, Sitting on the throne of David, Riding in a chariot, and on horses, They, and their princes, the man of Judah, And inhabitants of Jerusalem, And this city hath remained to the age.
[26] And they have come in from cities of Judah, And from suburbs of Jerusalem, And from the land of Benjamin, And from the low country, And from the hill-country, and from the south, Bringing in burnt-offering, and sacrifice, And present, and frankincense, And bringing praise to the house of Jehovah.
[27] And if ye do not hearken unto me to sanctify the day of rest, And so as not to bear a burden, And to come in at the gates of Jerusalem on the day of rest, Then I have kindled a fire in its gates, And it hath consumed the high places of Jerusalem, And it is not quenched!’
