Jeremiah 45

A Message for Baruch
 1  The prophet Jeremiah gave a message to Baruch son of Neriah in the fourth year of the reign of Jehoiakim son of Josiah, [1]  after Baruch had written down everything Jeremiah had dictated to him. He said,  2  "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says to you, Baruch:  3  You have said, `I am overwhelmed with trouble! Haven't I had enough pain already? And now the LORD has added more! I am worn out from sighing and can find no rest.'
   4  "Baruch, this is what the LORD says: `I will destroy this nation that I built. I will uproot what I planted.  5  Are you seeking great things for yourself? Don't do it! I will bring great disaster upon all these people; but I will give you your life as a reward wherever you go. I, the LORD, have spoken!'"
