Baruch being dismayed,
Jeremiah 45:1 The word that Ieremiah the Prophet spake vnto Baruch the sonne of Neriah, when he had written these words in a booke at the mouth of Ieremiah, in the fourth yeere of Iehoiakim the sonne of Iosiah king of Iudah, saying, Jeremiah 45:2 Thus saith the LORD the God of Israel vnto thee, O Baruch, Jeremiah 45:3 Thou didst say, Woe is me now, for the LORD hath added griefe to my sorow, I fainted in my sighing, and I find no rest.
Jeremiah instructeth and comforteth him.
Jeremiah 45:4 Thus shalt thou say vnto him, The LORD saith thus, Behold, that which I haue built will I breake downe, and that which I haue planted I will plucke vp, euen this whole land: Jeremiah 45:5 And seekest thou great things for thy selfe? seeke [them] not: for behold, I wil bring euill vpon all flesh, saith the LORD: but thy life will I giue vnto thee for a pray in all places whither thou goest.
