1 Encouragement to Baruch
1 The ch. 36:1,4,32word that Jeremiah the prophet spake unto Baruch the son of Neriah, when he had written these 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, the God of Israel, unto thee, O Baruch;
3 Thou didst say, Woe is me now! for the Lord hath added grief to my sorrow; I fainted in my sighing, and I find no rest.
4 Thus shalt thou say unto him, The Lord saith thus; Behold, Is. 5:5that which I have built will I break down, and that which I have planted I will pluck up, even this whole land.
5 And seekest thou great things for thyself? seek them not: for behold, ch. 25:26I will bring evil upon all flesh, saith the Lord: but thy life will I give unto thee ch. 21:9;& 38:2;& 39:18for a prey in all places whither thou goest.
