“But wee haue dwelt in tents, and haue obeyed, and done according to all that Ionadab our father commanded vs.”
King James Version (KJV)
7. Neither shall ye build house, nor sow seed, nor plant Uineyard, nor haue any: but all your dayes ye shall dwell in tents, that ye may liue many dayes in the land where ye be strangers. 8. Thus haue we obeyed the voice of Ionadab the sonne of Rechab our father, in all that he hath charged vs, to drinke no wine all our dayes, we, our wiues, our sonnes, nor our daughters: 9. Nor to build houses for vs to dwel in, neither haue we Uineyard, nor field, nor seed. 10. But wee haue dwelt in tents, and haue obeyed, and done according to all that Ionadab our father commanded vs. 11. But it came to passe when Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon came vp into the land, that we said, Come, and let vs goe to Ierusalem for feare of the armie of the Caldeans, and for feare of the armie of the Syrians: so we dwell at Ierusalem. 12. ¶ Then came the word of the Lord vnto Ieremiah, saying, 13. Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Goe and tel the men of Iudah, and inhabitants of Ierusalem, Will yee not receiue instruction to hearken to my words, saith the Lord ?
