A Message to Baruch...
The word that Yirmeyahu the prophet spoke to Baruk son of Neriyah, when he had written these words in a book from the mouth of Yirmeyahu, in the fourth year of Yehoyaqim son of Yoshiyahu, sovereign of Yehudah, saying,
'Thus said YHWH, the Elohim of Yisra'el, concerning you, Baruk:
'You have said, 'Woe to me now! For YHWH has added grief to my pain. I have been wearied with my sighing, and I have found no rest.''
'Say this to him, 'Thus said YHWH, 'See, what I have built I am breaking down, and what I have planted I am plucking up, that is, the entire land.
'And do you seek great matters for yourself? Do not seek them, for look, I am bringing evil on all flesh,' declares YHWH. 'But I shall give your life to you as a prize in all places, wherever you go.'''
