Jeremiah 20 ©
Pashur smiting Jeremiah receiveth a new name and a fearful doom. Jeremiah complaineth of the persecutions he met with, and curseth the day of his birth.
For thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will make thee ea terror to thyself, and to all thy friends: and they shall fall by the sword of their enemies, and fthine eyes shall behold it : and gI will give all Judah into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall carry them captive into Babylon, and shall slay them with the sword.
Moreover I hwill deliver all the strength of this city, and all the labours thereof, and all the precious things thereof, and all the treasures of the kings of Judah will I give into the hand of their enemies, which shall spoil them, and take them, and icarry them to Babylon.
And jthou, Pashur, and all that dwell in thine house shall go into captivity: and thou shalt come to Babylon, and there thou shalt die, and shalt be buried there, thou, and all thy friends, kto whom thou hast prophesied lies.
¶For pI heard the defaming of many, fear on every side. qReport, say they, and we will report it. 4All my *familiars rwatched for my halting, saying, *Peradventure he will be enticed, and we shall prevail against him, and we shall take our revenge on him.
But sthe LORD is with me as a mighty terrible one: therefore tmy persecutors shall stumble, and they shall not uprevail: they shall be greatly ashamed; for they shall not prosper: their veverlasting confusion shall never be forgotten.
