Jeremiah's Message to Baruch

1The word that Jeremiah the prophet spoke to 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, 2Thus said the LORD, the God of Israel, to you, O Baruch: 3You did say, Woe is me now! for the LORD has added grief to my sorrow; I fainted in my sighing, and I find no rest. 4Thus shall you say to him, The LORD said thus; Behold, that which I have built will I break down, and that which I have planted I will pluck up, even this whole land. 5And seek you great things for yourself? seek them not: for, behold, I will bring evil on all flesh, said the LORD: but your life will I give to you for a prey in all places where you go.
