Baruch being dismayed,
Jeremiah 45:1 The word which Jeremiah the prophet, spake, unto Baruch son of Neriah,when he had written these words upon a book, from the mouth of Jeremiah, in the fourth year of Jehoiakim son of Josiah, king of Judah, saying Jeremiah 45:2 Thus, saith Yahweh, God of Israel, Unto thee, O Baruch, Jeremiah 45:3 Thou didst say, Surely woe to me! For Yahweh hath added, sorrow unto my pain,I am weary with my moaning, And, rest, have I not found!
Jeremiah instructeth and comforteth him.
Jeremiah 45:4 Thus, shalt thou say unto him, Thus, saith Yahweh,Lo! what I had built, I, am pulling down, And, what I had planted, I, am rooting up,And that, is, all the land: Jeremiah 45:5 Wouldst, thou, then seek to secure for thyself great things? Do not seek! For, behold me! bringing in calamity upon all flesh, Declareth Yahweh, Nevertheless I will give thee thine own life as a spoil, in all places whithersoever thou goest.
