Jeremiah 21
No Deliverance from Babylon
1 The Lord spoke through Jeremiah when King Zedekiah sent Pashhur son of Malkijah and Zephaniah son of Maaseiah, the priest, to speak with him. They begged Jeremiah, 2 “Please speak to the Lord for us and ask him to help us. King Nebuchadnezzar[a] of Babylon is attacking Judah. Perhaps the Lord will be gracious and do a mighty miracle as he has done in the past. Perhaps he will force Nebuchadnezzar to withdraw his armies.”

3 Jeremiah replied, “Go back to King Zedekiah and tell him, 4 ‘This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: I will make your weapons useless against the king of Babylon and the Babylonians[b] who are outside your walls attacking you. In fact, I will bring your enemies right into the heart of this city. 5 I myself will fight against you with a strong hand and a powerful arm, for I am very angry. You have made me furious! 6 I will send a terrible plague upon this city, and both people and animals will die. 7 And after all that, says the Lord, I will hand over King Zedekiah, his staff, and everyone else in the city who survives the disease, war, and famine. I will hand them over to King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon and to their other enemies. He will slaughter them and show them no mercy, pity, or compassion.’

8 “Tell all the people, ‘This is what the Lord says: Take your choice of life or death! 9 Everyone who stays in Jerusalem will die from war, famine, or disease, but those who go out and surrender to the Babylonians will live. Their reward will be life! 10 For I have decided to bring disaster and not good upon this city, says the Lord. It will be handed over to the king of Babylon, and he will reduce it to ashes.’

Judgment on Judah’s Kings
11 “Say to the royal family of Judah, ‘Listen to this message from the Lord! 12 This is what the Lord says to the dynasty of David:

“‘Give justice each morning to the people you judge!
Help those who have been robbed;
rescue them from their oppressors.
Otherwise, my anger will burn like an unquenchable fire
because of all your sins.
13 I will personally fight against the people in Jerusalem,
that mighty fortress—
the people who boast, “No one can touch us here.
No one can break in here.”
14 And I myself will punish you for your sinfulness,
says the Lord.
I will light a fire in your forests
that will burn up everything around you.’”

21:2 Hebrew Nebuchadrezzar, a variant spelling of Nebuchadnezzar; also in 21:7.
21:4 Or Chaldeans; also in 21:9.


4 thoughts on “Jeremiah 21 Daily Bible Reading with Paul Nison

  1. Whomever was upset with the note reading claiming it was too much, I wonder if they do not have a notebook and dictionary next to their Bible. We’re not just reading, we’re studying. I have a dictionary, a giant concordance, an idioms book and a book called the language of tje KJV to go along with my TLV, JUB, JPS/JNTP, supplemented with my Peshitta, Septuagint, MEV and HCSB to go along with my KJV. JMT is a great book too, I only use it if I find differences between any others, because that Irish Canadian (I think) did a pretty good job translating. I still think the Jubilee Bible or JUB is more proper than the KJV, yet I do not have any Alexandrian perversions on my table or in my apt.

  2. Shalom shalom,
    Paul, a man of God. Thank you for all your readings.

    What a great example of what we need to do everyday. May Yeshua’s Love shine on you everyday my brother.

    Your brother
