Jeremiah 35 (WEBP)

[1] The word which came to Jeremiah from Yahweh in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, saying,
[2] “Go to the house of the Rechabites, and speak to them, and bring them into Yahweh’s house, into one of the rooms, and give them wine to drink.”
[3] Then I took Jaazaniah the son of Jeremiah, the son of Habazziniah, with his brothers, all his sons, and the whole house of the Rechabites;
[4] and I brought them into Yahweh’s house, into the room of the sons of Hanan the son of Igdaliah, the man of God, which was by the room of the princes, which was above the room of Maaseiah the son of Shallum, the keeper of the threshold.
[5] I set before the sons of the house of the Rechabites bowls full of wine, and cups; and I said to them, “Drink wine!”
[6] But they said, “We will drink no wine; for Jonadab the son of Rechab, our father, commanded us, saying, ‘You shall drink no wine, neither you nor your children, forever.
[7] You shall not build a house, sow seed, plant a vineyard, or have any; but all your days you shall dwell in tents, that you may live many days in the land in which you live as nomads.’
[8] We have obeyed the voice of Jonadab the son of Rechab, our father, in all that he commanded us, to drink no wine all our days, we, our wives, our sons, or our daughters;
[9] and not to build houses for ourselves to dwell in. We have no vineyard, field, or seed;
[10] but we have lived in tents, and have obeyed, and done according to all that Jonadab our father commanded us.
[11] But when Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up into the land, we said, ‘Come! Let’s go to Jerusalem for fear of the army of the Chaldeans, and for fear of the army of the Syrians; so we will dwell at Jerusalem.’ ”
[12] Then Yahweh’s word came to Jeremiah, saying,
[13] “Yahweh of Armies, the God of Israel, says: ‘Go and tell the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, “Will you not receive instruction to listen to my words?” says Yahweh.
[14] “The words of Jonadab the son of Rechab that he commanded his sons, not to drink wine, are performed; and to this day they drink none, for they obey their father’s commandment; but I have spoken to you, rising up early and speaking, and you have not listened to me.
[15] I have sent also to you all my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, saying, ‘Every one of you must return now from his evil way, amend your doings, and don’t go after other gods to serve them. Then you will dwell in the land which I have given to you and to your fathers;’ but you have not inclined your ear, nor listened to me.
[16] The sons of Jonadab the son of Rechab have performed the commandment of their father which he commanded them, but this people has not listened to me.” ’
[17] “Therefore Yahweh, the God of Armies, the God of Israel, says: ‘Behold, I will bring on Judah and on all the inhabitants of Jerusalem all the evil that I have pronounced against them, because I have spoken to them, but they have not heard; and I have called to them, but they have not answered.’ ”
[18] Jeremiah said to the house of the Rechabites, “Yahweh of Armies, the God of Israel, says: ‘Because you have obeyed the commandment of Jonadab your father, and kept all his precepts, and done according to all that he commanded you,’
[19] therefore Yahweh of Armies, the God of Israel, says: ‘Jonadab the son of Rechab will not lack a man to stand before me forever.’ ”

Jeremiah 35 (KJVS)

[1] The word H1697 which came unto Jeremiah H3414 from the LORD H3068 in the days H3117 of Jehoiakim H3079 the son H1121 of Josiah H2977 king H4428 of Judah H3063, saying H559 (8800),
[2] Go H1980 (8800) unto the house H1004 of the Rechabites H7397, and speak H1696 (8765) unto them, and bring H935 (8689) them into the house H1004 of the LORD H3068, into one H259 of the chambers H3957, and give them wine H3196 to drink H8248 (8689).
[3] Then I took H3947 (8799) Jaazaniah H2970 the son H1121 of Jeremiah H3414, the son H1121 of Habaziniah H2262, and his brethren H251, and all his sons H1121, and the whole house H1004 of the Rechabites H7397;
[4] And I brought H935 (8686) them into the house H1004 of the LORD H3068, into the chamber H3957 of the sons H1121 of Hanan H2605, the son H1121 of Igdaliah H3012, a man H376 of God H430, which [was] by H681 the chamber H3957 of the princes H8269, which [was] above H4605 the chamber H3957 of Maaseiah H4641 the son H1121 of Shallum H7967, the keeper H8104 (8802) of the door H5592:
[5] And I set H5414 (8799) before H6440 the sons H1121 of the house H1004 of the Rechabites H7397 pots H1375 full H4392 of wine H3196, and cups H3563, and I said H559 (8799) unto them, Drink H8354 (8798) ye wine H3196.
[6] But they said H559 (8799), We will drink H8354 (8799) no wine H3196: for Jonadab H3122 the son H1121 of Rechab H7394 our father H1 commanded H6680 (8765) us, saying H559 (8800), Ye shall drink H8354 (8799) no wine H3196, [neither ye], nor your sons H1121 for H5704 ever H5769:
[7] Neither shall ye build H1129 (8799) house H1004, nor sow H2232 (8799) seed H2233, nor plant H5193 (8799) vineyard H3754, nor have [any]: but all your days H3117 ye shall dwell H3427 (8799) in tents H168; that ye may live H2421 (8799) many H7227 days H3117 in H6440 the land H127 where ye [be] strangers H1481 (8802).
[8] Thus have we obeyed H8085 (8799) the voice H6963 of Jonadab H3082 the son H1121 of Rechab H7394 our father H1 in all that he hath charged H6680 (8765) us, to drink H8354 (8800) no wine H3196 all our days H3117, we, our wives H802, our sons H1121, nor our daughters H1323;
[9] Nor to build H1129 (8800) houses H1004 for us to dwell in H3427 (8800): neither have we vineyard H3754, nor field H7704, nor seed H2233:
[10] But we have dwelt in H3427 (8799) tents H168, and have obeyed H8085 (8799), and done H6213 (8799) according to all that Jonadab H3122 our father H1 commanded H6680 (8765) us.
[11] But it came to pass, when Nebuchadrezzar H5019 king H4428 of Babylon H894 came up H5927 (8800) into the land H776, that we said H559 (8799), Come H935 (8798), and let us go H935 (8799) to Jerusalem H3389 for fear H6440 of the army H2428 of the Chaldeans H3778, and for fear H6440 of the army H2428 of the Syrians H758: so we dwell H3427 (8799) at Jerusalem H3389.
[12] Then came the word H1697 of the LORD H3068 unto Jeremiah H3414, saying H559 (8800),
[13] Thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068 of hosts H6635, the God H430 of Israel H3478; Go H1980 (8800) and tell H559 (8804) the men H376 of Judah H3063 and the inhabitants H3427 (8802) of Jerusalem H3389, Will ye not receive H3947 (8799) instruction H4148 to hearken H8085 (8800) to my words H1697? saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068.
[14] The words H1697 of Jonadab H3082 the son H1121 of Rechab H7394, that he commanded H6680 (8765) his sons H1121 not to drink H8354 (8800) wine H3196, are performed H6965 (8717); for unto this day H3117 they drink H8354 (8804) none, but obey H8085 (8804) their father’s H1 commandment H4687: notwithstanding I have spoken H1696 (8765) unto you, rising early H7925 (8687) and speaking H1696 (8763); but ye hearkened H8085 (8804) not unto me.
[15] I have sent H7971 (8799) also unto you all my servants H5650 the prophets H5030, rising up early H7925 (8687) and sending H7971 (8800) [them], saying H559 (8800), Return H7725 (8798) ye now every man H376 from his evil H7451 way H1870, and amend H3190 (8685) your doings H4611, and go H3212 (8799) not after H310 other H312 gods H430 to serve H5647 (8800) them, and ye shall dwell in H3427 (8798) the land H127 which I have given H5414 (8804) to you and to your fathers H1: but ye have not inclined H5186 (8689) your ear H241, nor hearkened H8085 (8804) unto me.
[16] Because the sons H1121 of Jonadab H3082 the son H1121 of Rechab H7394 have performed H6965 (8689) the commandment H4687 of their father H1, which he commanded H6680 (8765) them; but this people H5971 hath not hearkened H8085 (8804) unto me:
[17] Therefore thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068 God H430 of hosts H6635, the God H430 of Israel H3478; Behold, I will bring H935 (8688) upon Judah H3063 and upon all the inhabitants H3427 (8802) of Jerusalem H3389 all the evil H7451 that I have pronounced H1696 (8765) against them: because I have spoken H1696 (8765) unto them, but they have not heard H8085 (8804); and I have called H7121 (8799) unto them, but they have not answered H6030 (8804).
[18] And Jeremiah H3414 said H559 (8804) unto the house H1004 of the Rechabites H7397, Thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068 of hosts H6635, the God H430 of Israel H3478; Because ye have obeyed H8085 (8804) the commandment H4687 of Jonadab H3082 your father H1, and kept H8104 (8799) all his precepts H4687, and done H6213 (8799) according unto all that he hath commanded H6680 (8765) you:
[19] Therefore thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068 of hosts H6635, the God H430 of Israel H3478; Jonadab H3122 the son H1121 of Rechab H7394 shall not want H3772 (8735) a man H376 to stand H5975 (8802) before H6440 me for ever H3117.

Young’s Literal Translation

Jeremiah 35 (YLT)

[1] The word that hath been unto Jeremiah from Jehovah, in the days of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah, saying:
[2] ‘Go unto the house of the Rechabites, and thou hast spoken with them, and brought them into the house of Jehovah, unto one of the chambers, and caused them to drink wine.’
[3] And I take Jaazaniah son of Jeremiah, son of Habazziniah, and his brethren, and all his sons, and all the house of the Rechabites,
[4] and bring them into the house of Jehovah, unto the chamber of the sons of Hanan son of Igdaliah, a man of God, that is near to the chamber of the princes, that is above the chamber of Maaseiah son of Shallum, keeper of the threshold;
[5] and I put before the sons of the house of the Rechabites goblets full of wine, and cups, and I say unto them, Drink ye wine.
[6] And they say, ‘We do not drink wine: for Jonadab son of Rechab, our father, charged us, saying, Ye do not drink wine, ye and your sons-unto the age;
[7] and a house ye do not build, and seed ye do not sow, and a vineyard ye do not plant, nor have ye any; for in tents do ye dwell all your days, that ye may live many days on the face of the ground whither ye are sojourning.
[8] ‘And we hearken to the voice of Jonadab son of Rechab, our father, to all that he commanded us, not to drink wine all our days, we, our wives, our sons, and our daughters;
[9] nor to build houses for our dwelling; and vineyard, and field, and seed, we have none;
[10] and we dwell in tents, and we hearken, and we do according to all that Jonadab our father commanded us;
[11] and it cometh to pass, in the coming up of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon unto the land, that we say, Come, and we enter Jerusalem, because of the force of the Chaldeans, and because of the force of Aram-and we dwell in Jerusalem.’
[12] And there is a word of Jehovah unto Jeremiah, saying: ‘Thus said Jehovah of Hosts, God of Israel:
[13] ‘Go, and thou hast said to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem: Do ye not receive instruction?-to hearken unto My words-an affirmation of Jehovah.
[14] Performed have been the words of Jonadab son of Rechab, when he commanded his sons not to drink wine, and they have not drunk unto this day, for they have obeyed the command of their father; and I-I have spoken unto you, rising early and speaking, and ye have not hearkened unto Me.
[15] And I send unto you all My servants the prophets, rising early and sending, saying: Turn back, I pray you, each from his evil way, and amend your doings, yea, ye do not walk after other gods, to serve them, and dwell ye on the ground that I have given to you and to your fathers; and ye have not inclined your ear, nor hearkened unto Me.
[16] ‘Because the sons of Jonadab son of Rechab have performed the command of their father, that he commanded them, and this people have not hearkened unto Me,
[17] therefore thus said Jehovah, God of Hosts, God of Israel: Lo, I am bringing in unto Judah, and unto all inhabitants of Jerusalem, all the evil that I have spoken against them, because I have spoken unto them, and they have not hearkened, yea, I call to them, and they have not answered.’
[18] And to the house of the Rechabites said Jeremiah: ‘Thus said Jehovah of Hosts, God of Israel, Because that ye have hearkened unto the command of Jonadab your father, and ye observe all his commands, and do according to all that he commanded you;
[19] therefore, thus said Jehovah of Hosts, God of Israel, Of Jonadab son of Rechab one standing before me is not cut off all the days.’
