“¶ And these are the words that the Lord spake concerning Israel, and concerning Iudah.”
King James Version (KJV)
1. The word that came to Ieremiah from the Lord, saying, 2. Thus speaketh the Lord God of Israel, saying; Write thee all the wordes that I haue spoken vnto thee, in a booke. 3. For loe, the dayes come, saith the Lord, that I will bring againe the captiuitie of my people Israel and Iudah, saith the Lord, and I wil cause them to returne to the land, that I gaue to their fathers, and they shall possesse it. 4. ¶ And these are the words that the Lord spake concerning Israel, and concerning Iudah. 5. For thus sayth the Lord, Wee haue heard a voice of trembling, of feare, and not of peace. 6. Aske yee now and see whether a man doeth trauaile with child? wherefore doe I see euery man with his handes on his loynes, as a woman in trauaile, and all faces are turned into palenesse? 7. Alas, for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is euen the time of Iacobs trouble, but he shall be saued out of it.
