Jeremiah 22 Judgment Against Jehoiakim 13“How terrible it will be for him who builds his palace by doing evil. He cheats people so he can build its upper rooms. He is making his own people work for nothing. He is not paying them for their work. 14He says, ‘I will build a great palace for myself. I will have large upper rooms.’ So he builds the palace with large windows. He uses cedar wood for the walls. And he paints it red. 15“Does having a lot of cedar in your house make you a great king? Your father was satisfied to have food and drink. He did what was right and fair. So everything went well for him. 16He helped those who were poor and needy. So everything went well for him. That’s what it means to know God,” says the Lord. 17“But your eyes only look for what you can get dishonestly. You are always thinking about getting more for yourself. You are even willing to kill innocent people to get it. You are making it hard for people. You even steal things from them.” 18So this is what the Lord says to Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah: “The people of Judah will not cry loudly when Jehoiakim dies. They will not say, ‘Oh, my brother, I am so sad! Oh, my sister, I am so sad!’ The people of Judah will not cry for him, saying: ‘Oh, master, oh, my king.’ 19The people of Jerusalem will bury him like a donkey. They will just drag his body away. Then they will throw it outside the gates of Jerusalem. 20“Judah, go up to Lebanon and cry out. Let your voice be heard in Bashan. Cry out from Abarim. All your friends are destroyed! 21Judah, when you were successful, I warned you. But you refused to listen. You have acted like this since you were young. You have not obeyed me. 22My punishment will come like a storm. And it will blow all your shepherds away. Your friends will be taken away as captives. Then you will really be ashamed. You will be disgraced because of all the wicked things you did. 23King, you live in your palace. You are cozy in your rooms of cedar. But you will groan when your punishment comes. You will hurt like a woman giving birth to a baby! 1 John 3:1 The Father has loved us so much! He loved us so much that we are called children of God. And we really are his children. But the people in the world do not understand that we are God’s children, because they have not known him. https://temtube.com/
