Every head shall be bald, and every beard clipped: upon all the hands shall be cuttings, and upon the loins sackcloth. 48:37

Trivia: When did Jeremiah became a prophet?



Stop complaining, Baruch

1 The word that Jeremiah the prophet spake unto Baruch the son of Neriah, when he had written these words in a book at the mouth of Jeremiah, in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, saying,

In the fourth year of Jehoiakim,

the word came to Jeremiah, and said,

2 Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel, unto thee, O Baruch:

Say this to Baruch:

3 Thou didst say, Woe is me now! for the LORD hath added grief to my sorrow; I fainted in my sighing, and I find no rest.

You say,

Woe is me!

Because God has made me even more sad.

4 Thus shalt thou say unto him, The LORD saith thus; Behold, that which I have built will I break down, and that which I have planted I will pluck up, even this whole land.

Tell him,

I'll destroy the things that I made.

5 And seekest thou great things for thyself? seek them not: for, behold, I will bring evil upon all flesh, saith the LORD: but thy life will I give unto thee for a prey in all places whither thou goest.

Don't seek great things for yourself.

Because I'll bring evil on all flesh.

But I'll let you live.
