Jeremiah 45

1Jehoiakim was the son of Josiah. In the fourth year Jehoiakim was king of Judah, Jeremiah the prophet told these things to Baruch son of Neriah. Baruch wrote these things on a scroll. This is what Jeremiah said to Baruch: 2“This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says to you: 3'Baruch, you have said: It is very bad for me. The Lord has given me sorrow along with my pain. I am very tired. I am worn out because of my suffering. I can’t find rest.’ 4Jeremiah, say this to Baruch: 'This is what the Lord says: I will tear down what I have built. And I will pull up what I have planted. I will do that everywhere in Judah. 5Baruch, you are looking for great things for yourself. But don’t look for those things. Don’t look for them, because I will make terrible things happen to all the people.’ The Lord said these things. 'You will have to go many places. But I will let you escape alive wherever you go.’”
