Jeremiah - Chapter 10
  • 1. Hear what the LORD says to you, O house of Israel.
  • 2. This is what the LORD says: "Do not learn the ways of the nations or be terrified by signs in the sky, though the nations are terrified by them.
  • 3. For the customs of the peoples are worthless; they cut a tree out of the forest, and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel.
  • 4. They adorn it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so it will not totter.
  • 5. Like a scarecrow in a melon patch, their idols cannot speak; they must be carried because they cannot walk. Do not fear them; they can do no harm nor can they do any good."
  • 6. No one is like you, O LORD; you are great, and your name is mighty in power.
  • 7. Who should not revere you, O King of the nations? This is your due. Among all the wise men of the nations and in all their kingdoms, there is no one like you.
  • 8. They are all senseless and foolish; they are taught by worthless wooden idols.
  • 9. Hammered silver is brought from Tarshish and gold from Uphaz. What the craftsman and goldsmith have made is then dressed in blue and purple-- all made by skilled workers.
  • 10. But the LORD is the true God; he is the living God, the eternal King. When he is angry, the earth trembles; the nations cannot endure his wrath.
  • 11. Tell them this: 'These gods, who did not make the heavens and the earth, will perish from the earth and from under the heavens.'
  • 12. But God made the earth by his power; he founded the world by his wisdom and stretched out the heavens by his understanding.
  • 13. When he thunders, the waters in the heavens roar; he makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth. He sends lightning with the rain and brings out the wind from his storehouses.
  • 14. Everyone is senseless and without knowledge; every goldsmith is shamed by his idols. His images are a fraud; they have no breath in them.
  • 15. They are worthless, the objects of mockery; when their judgment comes, they will perish.
  • 16. He who is the Portion of Jacob is not like these, for he is the Maker of all things, including Israel, the tribe of his inheritance-- the LORD Almighty is his name.
  • 17. Gather up your belongings to leave the land, you who live under siege.
  • 18. For this is what the LORD says: "At this time I will hurl out those who live in this land; I will bring distress on them so that they may be captured."
  • 19. Woe to me because of my injury! My wound is incurable! Yet I said to myself, "This is my sickness, and I must endure it."
  • 20. My tent is destroyed; all its ropes are snapped. My sons are gone from me and are no more; no one is left now to pitch my tent or to set up my shelter.
  • 21. The shepherds are senseless and do not inquire of the LORD; so they do not prosper and all their flock is scattered.
  • 22. Listen! The report is coming-- a great commotion from the land of the north! It will make the towns of Judah desolate, a haunt of jackals.
  • 23. I know, O LORD, that a man's life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps.
  • 24. Correct me, LORD, but only with justice-- not in your anger, lest you reduce me to nothing.
  • 25. Pour out your wrath on the nations that do not acknowledge you, on the peoples who do not call on your name. For they have devoured Jacob; they have devoured him completely and destroyed his homeland.
