1 The word that Jeremiah the Prophet spake unto [a]Baruch the son of Neriah, when he had written these [b]words in a book at the mouth of Jeremiah, in the fourth year of Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah king of Judah, saying,

2 Thus saith the Lord God of Israel unto thee, O Baruch,

3 Thou didst say, Woe is me now: for the Lord hath laid sorrow unto my sorrow: I [c]fainted in my mourning, and I can find no rest.

4 Thus shalt thou say unto him, The Lord saith thus, Behold, that which I have built, will I [d]destroy, and that which I have planted, will I pluck up, even this whole land.

5 And seekest [e]thou great things for thyself? seek them not: for behold, I will bring a plague upon all flesh, saith the Lord: but thy life will I give thee for [f]a prey in all places, whither thou goest.
