1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou
camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee and I ordained thee a prophet
unto the nations.
1:6 Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak, for I am a child.
1:7 But the LORD said unto me, Say not, I am a child. For thou shalt
go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt
1:8 Be not afraid of their faces. For I am with thee to deliver thee,
saith the LORD.
1:9 Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the
LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth.
1:19 And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail
against thee; for I am with thee, saith the LORD, to deliver thee.
2:5 Thus saith the LORD, What iniquity
have your fathers found in me, that they are gone far from me, and have
walked after vanity, and are become vain?
2:11 Hath a nation changed their gods, which
are yet no gods? But my people have changed their glory for that which
doth not profit.
2:30 In vain have I smitten your children; they
received no correction. Your own sword hath devoured your prophets, like
a destroying lion.
3:8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel
committed adultery I had put her away and given her a bill of divorce;

3:17 At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the LORD;
and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the LORD,
to Jerusalem; neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of
their evil heart.
3:20 Surely as a wife treacherously departeth from her husband, so
have ye dealt treacherously (to act or deal
treacherously, faithlessly, deceitfully, offend)
with me, O house of Israel, saith the LORD.
5:22 Fear ye not me? saith the LORD. Will ye not tremble
at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by
a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it And, though the waves thereof
toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they
not pass over it?
5:24 Neither say they in their heart Let us now fear the LORD our God,
that giveth rain, both the former and the latter in his (its)
season. He reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest.
7:19 Do they provoke me to anger? saith the LORD (original
is 'I get angry, says the Lord'). Do they
not provoke (original is 'shame')
themselves to the confusion of their own faces?
7:34 Then will I cause to cease from the cities of Judah, and from
the streets of Jerusalem, the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness,
the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride; for the land shall
8:2 And they shall spread them before the sun and the moon and all
the host of heaven, whom they have loved and whom they have served and
after whom they have walked, and whom they have sought and whom they have
worshipped. They shall not be gathered, nor be buried; they shall be for
dung upon the face of the earth.
8:8 How do ye say, We are wise, and the law
of the LORD is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the
scribes is in vain.
8:9 The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken. Lo, they
have rejected the word of the LORD; and what wisdom is in them?
8:10 Therefore will I give their wives unto others, and their fields
to them that shall inherit them; for every one from the least even unto
the greatest is given to covetousness,
from the prophet
even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.
