The Bible in Its Traditions

Jeremiah 13:15–17

M G S
V

15  Hear ye, and give ear, be not proud; for YHWH hath spoken.

15  Hear and pay close attention. Do not choose to lift yourself up, for the Lord has spoken.

M S
G V

16  Give glory to YHWH your God, before it grow dark, and before your feet stumble upon the mountains of twilight, and, while ye look for light, He turn it into the shadow of death, and make it gross darkness.

16  Give glory to the Lord your God, before he cause darkness, and before your feet stumble on the dark mountains, and ye shall wait for light, and behold the shadow of death, and they shall be brought into darkness.

M
G
V S

17  But if ye will not hear it, my soul shall weep in secret for your pride; and mine eyes shall weep sore, and run down with tears, because YHWH'S flock is carried away captive.

17  But if ye will not hearken, your soul shall weep in secret because of pride, and your eyes shall pour down tears, because the Lord’s flock is sorely bruised.

17  But if you will not listen to this, then my soul will weep in secret before the face of your pride. It will weep bitterly, and my eyes will flow with tears, because the flock of the Lord has been taken captive.
