The Prophecy of Jeremias
Chapter 45
When Baruch, son of Nerias, had written down the words dictated to him by Jeremias, in the fourth year of Joachim’s reign in Juda, this comfort Jeremias gave him:
A message from the Lord, the God of Israel, to thee, Baruch!
Woe is thee, heavy is thy heart; sorrow upon sorrow the Lord gives thee, and respite thou canst find none.
Yet this message the Lord has for thee: Here am I destroying what my own hands built, uprooting what my own hands planted;
and for thee must it be all prizes? For prizes never look thou; enough for thee that, go thou where thou wilt, safe-conduct of thy life I am granting thee.
