[1] The message that Jeremiah the prophet spoke to Baruch the son of Neriah, when he wrote these words in a book at the mouth of Jeremiah, in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, saying,
[2] “Yahweh, the God of Israel, says to you, Baruch:
[3] ‘You said, “Woe is me now! For Yahweh has added sorrow to my pain! I am weary with my groaning, and I find no rest.” ’
[4] “You shall tell him, Yahweh says: ‘Behold, that which I have built, I will break down, and that which I have planted I will pluck up; and this in the whole land.
[5] Do you seek great things for yourself? Don’t seek them; for, behold, I will bring evil on all flesh,’ says Yahweh, ‘but I will let you escape with your life wherever you go.’ ”

[1] The word H1697 that Jeremiah H3414 the prophet H5030 spake H1696 (8765) unto Baruch H1263 the son H1121 of Neriah H5374, when he had written H3789 (8800) these words H1697 in a book H5612 at the mouth H6310 of Jeremiah H3414, in the fourth H7243 year H8141 of Jehoiakim H3079 the son H1121 of Josiah H2977 king H4428 of Judah H3063, saying H559 (8800),
[2] Thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068, the God H430 of Israel H3478, unto thee, O Baruch H1263;
[3] Thou didst say H559 (8804), Woe H188 is me now! for the LORD H3068 hath added H3254 (8804) grief H3015 to my sorrow H4341; I fainted H3021 (8804) in my sighing H585, and I find H4672 (8804) no rest H4496.

Jeremiah 45 (YLT)

[1] The word that Jeremiah the prophet hath spoken unto Baruch son of Neriah, in his writing these words on a book from the mouth of Jeremiah, in the fourth year of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah, saying:
[2] ‘Thus said Jehovah, God of Israel, concerning thee, O Baruch:
[3] ‘Thou hast said, Woe to me, now, for Jehovah hath added sorrow to my pain, I have been wearied with my sighing, and rest I have not found.
[4] Thus dost thou say unto him: Thus said Jehovah: Lo, that which I have built I am throwing down, and that which I have planted I am plucking up, even the whole land itself.
[5] And thou-thou seekest for thee great things-do not seek, for lo, I am bringing in evil on all flesh-an affirmation of Jehovah-and I have given to thee thy life for a spoil, in all places whither thou goest.’
