Jeremiah 45

God Speaks Through Jeremiah To Baruch

1 This is the word which Jeremiah the man of God said to Baruch the son of Neriah, when he had written down in a book what Jeremiah told him. This was in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah. 2 "This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says to you, O Baruch: 3 'You said, "O, it is bad for me! For the Lord has added sorrow to my pain. I am tired from crying inside myself, and have found no rest." ' '' 4 "So you are to tell him, 'The Lord says, "I am breaking down what I have built. And I am pulling up by the roots what I have planted, that is, the whole land." 5 Are you looking for great things for yourself? Do not look for them. For I am bringing trouble to all flesh,' says the Lord. 'But I will give you life in all the places you go.' "
