Jeremiah 50

The judgment of Babylon.

Jeremiah 50:1 The wordes that the Lord spake vnto the Prophet Ieremy, concerninge Babylon, & the lande of the Caldees: Jeremiah 50:2 preache amonge the Gentiles, let youre voyce be hearde, make a token: crye oute, kepe no sylence but saye: Babylon shall be wonne, Bel shalbe confounded, & Merodach shalbe ouercome. Yea their Goddes shalbe brought to shame, and theyr ymages shall stande in feare. Jeremiah 50:3 For oute of the northe there shall come a people against her, whiche shal make her lande so wast, that no body shall dwell therin: neyther man nor beast, for they shall flye and departe from thence.

The redemption of Israel.

Jeremiah 50:4 In those dayes & at that time sayeth the Lorde, the children of Israell shall come, they and the children of Iuda, wepyng & makinge haste, and shall seke the Lord their God. Jeremiah 50:5 They shall aske the waye to Sion, thyther shall they turne theyr faces, & come and hange vpon the, in a couenaunte that neuer shall be broken. Jeremiah 50:6 My people hath bene a lost flocke, my shepherdes haue disceyued them, and haue made them go astraye vpon the hylles. They haue gone from the mountayne to the litle hyl, and forgotten their folde. Jeremiah 50:7 All they that came vpon them, haue deuoured them: & theyr enemyes sayde: We haue made no faute agaynst them for they haue displeased the Lorde, yea euen the Lorde whiche is the bewtie of theyr ryghtuousnes, & that defended theyr fathers. Jeremiah 50:8 Yet shall ye fle from Babilon, & depart out of the lande of the Caldees, and ye shall be as the rammes that go before the flocke.

The judgment of Babylon.

Jeremiah 50:9 For lo, I wyll wake vp an hoost of people from the northren lande, and brynge them vpon Babylon: these shall laye sege to it, and winne it: Theyr arowes shall not mysse, like as a connyng archer shuteth not wronge. Jeremiah 50:10 And the Caldees shalbe spoyled, and all they that spoyle them, shalbe satisfyed, sayeth the Lorde: Jeremiah 50:11 because ye were so chearfull and glad, to treade doune myne heritage, and fulfylled youre pleasures, as the calues in the grasse: and triumphed ouer them lyke the bulles, when ye had gotten the victory. Jeremiah 50:12 Youre mothers shalbe sore confounded, and they that bare you, shall come to shame. She shall be the leaste set by amonge the nacions, voyde, waste, and dryed vp. Jeremiah 50:13 No man shall be able to dwell there, for the feare of the Lorde, but she shall be whole desolate. All they that go by Babylon, shall stande styll, & be abashed, and shall wondre at all her plages. Jeremiah 50:14 Go forth in your araye againste Babylon rounde aboute, all ye that can handle bowes: shute at her, spare no arowes, for she hath synned agaynst the Lorde. Jeremiah 50:15 Crye oute: vpon her, vpon her, agaynste her round about: she shall yelde her selfe, her foundacyons shal fall, and her walles shall come doune, for it shalbe the vengeaunce of the Lorde. Yea vengeaunce shalbe taken of her, and as she hath done, so shall she be dealte with al. Jeremiah 50:16 They shal rote out the sower from Babylon, & hym that handleth the syckle in haruest. For feare of the swearde of the enemye, euery man shal get hym to his owne people, and euery man shall flye to hys owne lande.

The redemption of Israel.

Jeremiah 50:17 Israel is a scatred flocke, the Lyons haue dispersed them. Fyrste the kynge of the Assyryans deuoured them, last of all thys Nabuchodonosor Kyng of Babylon hath brosed all theyr bones. Jeremiah 50:18 Therfore thus saith the Lorde of hostes the God of Israell: Beholde, I wyll vyset the Kynge of Babylon and hys kyngdome, as I haue vysited the kynge of the Assyryans: Jeremiah 50:19 and wil bringe Israel agayne to hys pleasaunte pasture, that he maye fede vpon Charmel and Basan, and be satisfyed vpon the mounte of Ephraim & Galaad. Jeremiah 50:20 In those dayes & at the same tyme (sayeth the Lorde) yf the offence of Israel be soughte for, there shal none be found: Yf men enquere for the sinne of Iuda, there shalbe none: for I wyll be mercyfull vnto them whome I suffre to remayne ouer.

The judgment of Babylon.

Jeremiah 50:21 Go doune (O thou auenger) into the enemyes lande, and vyset them that dwel therin: doune with them, and smyte them vpon the backes, sayeth the Lorde: do accordyng to all, that I haue commaunded the. Jeremiah 50:22 There is gone aboute the lande a crye of a slaughter & great murther, namelye on thys maner: Jeremiah 50:23 How happeneth it, that the hammer of the whole world is thus broken and brosed in sonder? Howe chaunceth it, that Babylon is become a wyldernes amonge the Heathen on this maner? Jeremiah 50:24 I my selfe haue layed wayte for the, and thou arte taken: vnawarres arte thou trapped and snared: for why, thou haste prouoked þe Lorde vnto anger: Jeremiah 50:25 The Lorde hath opened his house of ordynaunce, and broughte forthe the weapens of his wrath. For the thing that is done in the lande of the Caldees, it is the Lorde of hostes worcke. Jeremiah 50:26 These thinges shal come vpon her at the last, they shal breake into her preuye chambres, they shall leaue her as bare as stones, that be layed together vpon heapes. They shal so destroye her, that nothynge shall be lefte. Jeremiah 50:27 They shall slaye all their mightye soudyars, and put them to death. Wo be vnto them, for þe daye & tyme of their visitacion is at hande. Jeremiah 50:28 Me thinke I heare all readye a crye, of them that be fled & escaped oute of the lande of Babylon, which shewe in Syon the vengeaunce of the Lorde oure God the vengeaunce of his temple, yea a voyce of them, that crye against Babylon: Jeremiah 50:29 Call vp all the archers agaynste Babylon, pytche youre tentes rounde aboute her, that none escape. Recompence her, as she hath deserued: and accordinge as she hath done, so deale wyth her agayne: for she hath set vp her selfe agaynste the Lorde, agaynste the holy one of Israel. Jeremiah 50:30 Therfore shall her yonge men fal doune in the stretes, and all her men of warre shalbe roted oute in that daye, saith the Lorde. Jeremiah 50:31 Behold, I speake vnto the (O thou proude) sayeth the Lorde God of hostes: for thy daye shall come, euen the tyme of thy vysitacion. Jeremiah 50:32 And the proude shall stomble & fall, & no man shall helpe hym vp. I wyl burne vp his cities wyth fyre, and it shal consume al that is rounde aboute hym.

The redemption of Israel.

Jeremiah 50:33 Thus sayth the Lorde of hostes: The chyldren of Israell & Iuda suffre violence together. Al they that haue them in captyuyte, kepe them faste, and wyll not let them go: Jeremiah 50:34 but theyr auenger & redemer is myghtye, whose name is the Lorde of hostes: he shal maintayne theyr cause, he shall make the lande shake, and iudge them that dwell therein, one wyth another.

The judgment of Babylon.

Jeremiah 50:35 The swearde shall come vpon the Caldees, sayeth the Lorde, vpon them that dwell in Babylon, vpon their princes, & vpon theyr wise men: Jeremiah 50:36 The swearde vpon theyr soth sayers, as for those (they shal become fooles.) The swearde vpon they: worthies, so þt they shall stande in feare: Jeremiah 50:37 The swearde vpon theyr horsmen and charettes, and vpon al the comon people that dwell vnder them: so that they shall all become lyke wemen: The swearde vpon their treasure, so that it shall be stolen awaye. Jeremiah 50:38 The swearde vpon theyr waters, so þt they shalbe dryed vp. For the lande worshippeth ymages, & delyteth in straunge wondrefull thynges. Jeremiah 50:39 Therfore shall wylde beastes, Apes, and Estriches dwell therin: for there shall neuer man dwell there, neyther shal any man haue his habitacion there for euermore. Jeremiah 50:40 Lyke as God destroyed Sodome and Gomorre, with the cities that laye there aboute, sayeth the Lord: So shall no man dwell there also, nether shall any man haue there hys habitacyon. Jeremiah 50:41 Beholde, there shall come a people from the North, with a greate bounde of men and many Kynges shall stande vp from the endes of the earth: Jeremiah 50:42 They beare bowes & buclers, cruel are they and vnmercyfull. Their voyce roareth lyke the ragyng sea, they ryde vpon horses, & come weapened to fyght agaynst the O Babylon. Jeremiah 50:43 As sone as the kyng of Babylon heareth tell of them, hys handes shall waxe feable: Sorowe and heuynes shal come vpon him, as a woman trauelynge wyth chylde. Jeremiah 50:44 Beholde, lyke as the Lyon commeth vp from the pleasaunt medowes of Iordane vnto the grene pastures of Ethan, so wyll I dryue them forth, & make them runne agaynst her. But whom shall I chose out, & ordene to such a thyng? For who is lyke me, or who wyl stryue wt me? or what shepherde maye stande against me? Jeremiah 50:45 Therfore heare the councel that the Lord hath geuen vpon Babylon, and the deuyce that he hath taken vpon the lande of the Caldees. The leaste amonge the people shall teare them in peces, & loke what pleasaunte thinge they haue: they shall laye it waste. Jeremiah 50:46 The noyse at the wynning of Babylon shall moue the earthe, & the crye shalbe hearde amonge the Gentyles.
