1 The Lord Is the Only True God
1 People of Israel, listen to what the Lord is telling you. 2 He says, 2 "Do not follow the practices of other nations. 2 Do not be terrified by warnings in the sky. 2 Do not be afraid, even though the nations are terrified by them.
5 The statues of their gods can't speak. 5 They are like scarecrows in a field of melons. 5 They have to be carried around 5 because they can't walk. 5 So do not worship them. 5 They can't do you any harm. 5 And they can't do you any good either."
7 King of the nations, 7 everyone should have respect for you. 7 That's what people should give you. 7 Among all of the wise people in the nations 7 there is no one like you. 7 No one can compare with you in all of their kingdoms.
9 Hammered silver is brought from Tarshish. 9 Gold is brought from Uphaz. 9 People who are skilled in working with wood and gold make a statue. 9 Then they put blue and purple clothes on it. 9 The whole thing is made by skilled workers.
10 But you are the only true God. 10 You are the only living God. 10 You are the King who rules forever. 10 When you are angry, the earth trembles with fear. 10 The nations can't stand up under your anger.
11 The Lord says to the Jews who are living in Babylonia, "Tell the people of the nations, 'Your gods did not make the heavens and the earth. In fact, those gods will disappear from the earth. They will vanish from under the heavens.' "
13 When he thunders, the waters in the heavens roar. 13 He makes clouds rise from one end of the earth to the other. 13 He sends lightning along with the rain. 13 He brings the wind out from his storerooms.
16 The God of Jacob is not like them. 16 He gives his people everything they need. 16 He made everything that exists. 16 And that includes Israel. 16 It's the nation that belongs to him. 16 His name is The Lord Who Rules Over All.
17 The Land Will Be Destroyed
20 Jerusalem is like a tent that has been destroyed. 20 All of its ropes have snapped. 20 My people have gone away from me. 20 Now no one is left to set up my tent. 20 I have no one to set it up for me.
21 The leaders of my people are like shepherds 21 who don't have any sense. 21 They don't ask the Lord for advice. 21 That's why they don't succeed. 21 And that's why their whole flock 21 is scattered like sheep.
23 Jeremiah Prays to the Lord
25 Pour out your burning anger on the nations. 25 They don't pay any attention to you. 25 They refuse to worship you. 25 They have destroyed the people of Jacob. 25 They've wiped them out completely. 25 They've also destroyed the land they lived in.
