Bible Version

Jeremiah chapter 10

1
Family of Israel, listen to the Lord!
2
This is what he says: "Don't live like people from other nations. Don't be afraid of special signs in the sky. The other nations are afraid of what they see in the sky. But you must not be afraid of them.
3
The customs of other people are worth nothing. Their idols are nothing but wood from the forest. Their idols are made by workers with their chisels.
4
They make their idols beautiful with silver and gold. They use hammers and nails to fasten their idols down, so they will not fall over.
5
The idols of the other nations are like a scarecrow in a cucumber field. They cannot walk. They cannot talk, and the people must carry them. So don't be afraid of their idols. They cannot hurt you. And they cannot help you either."
6
Lord, there is no one like you! You are great! Your name is great and powerful!
7
Everyone should respect you, King of all the nations. You deserve their respect. There are many wise men among the nations, but not one of them is as wise as you.
8
All the people of the other nations are stupid and foolish. Their teachings come from worthless wooden statues.
9
They use silver from the city of Tarshish and gold from the city of Uphaz and make their statues. Carpenters and metalworkers make the idols. They put blue and purple clothes on them. "Wise men" make these "gods."
10
But the Lord is the only true God. He is the only God who is alive. He is the King who rules forever. The earth shakes when he is angry. The people of the nations cannot stop his anger.
11
The Lord says, "Tell them this message: 'These false gods did not make heaven and earth. They will be destroyed and disappear from heaven and earth.'"
12
God is the one who used his power and made the earth. He used his wisdom and built the world. With his understanding, he stretched the sky over the earth.
13
God causes the loud thunder, and he causes great floods of water to fall from the sky. He makes clouds rise in the sky every place on earth. He sends lightning with the rain. He brings out the wind from his storehouses.
14
People are so stupid! Metalworkers are fooled by the idols that they themselves made. These statues are nothing but lies. They are stupid.
15
These idols are worth nothing. They are something to make fun of. In the time of judgment, they will be destroyed.
16
But Jacob's God is not like the idols. He made everything, and Israel is the family that God chose to be his own people. His name is Lord All-Powerful.
17
Get everything you own and prepare to leave. People of Judah, you are trapped in the city, and the enemy is all around it.
18
This is what the Lord says: "This time, I will throw the people of Judah out of this country. I will bring pain and trouble to them. I will do this so that they will learn their lesson."
19
I am hurt badly. I am injured and I cannot be healed. Yet I told myself, "This is my sickness, I must suffer through it."
20
My tent is ruined. All its ropes are broken. My children left me. They are gone. No one is left to put up my tent. No one is left to fix a shelter for me.
21
The shepherds are stupid. They don't try to find the Lord. They are not wise, so their flocks are scattered and lost.
22
Listen! A loud noise! The loud noise is coming from the north. It will destroy the cities of Judah. Judah will become an empty desert. It will be a home for jackals.
23
Lord, I know people don't really know how to live right.
24
Lord, correct us! But be fair! Don't punish us in anger!
25
If you are angry, then punish the other nations. They don't know or respect you. They don't worship you. Those nations destroyed Jacob's family. They destroyed Israel completely. They destroyed Israel's homeland.

Jeremiah chapter 11

1
This is the message from the Lord:
2
"Jeremiah, listen to the words of this agreement and tell them to the people living in Jerusalem and the rest of Judah.
3
Tell them this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: 'Bad things will happen to anyone who does not obey this agreement.
4
I am talking about the agreement I made with your ancestors when I brought them out of that furnace called Egypt.' At that time I told them, 'Listen to me and obey all the commands I give you. Then you will be my people, and I will be your God.'
5
"I did this to keep the promise I had made to your ancestors. I promised to give them a very fertile land�a land flowing with milk and honey. And you are living in that country today." I answered, "Amen, Lord."
6
The Lord said to me, "Jeremiah, tell this message in the towns of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem. This is the message: 'Listen to the words of this agreement, and then obey these laws.
7
I gave a warning to your ancestors at the time I brought them out of the land of Egypt. I warned them again and again to this very day. I told them to obey me.
8
But your ancestors did not listen to me. They were stubborn and did what their own evil hearts wanted. The agreement says that bad things will happen to them if they don't obey. So I made all the bad things happen to them. I commanded them to obey the agreement, but they did not.'"
9
The Lord said to me, "Jeremiah, I know that the people of Judah and the people living in Jerusalem have made secret plans.
10
They are committing the same sins that their ancestors did. Their ancestors refused to listen to my message. They followed and worshiped other gods. The family of Israel and the family of Judah have broken the agreement I made with their ancestors."
11
So this is what the Lord says: "I will soon make something terrible happen to the people of Judah. They will not be able to escape. They will be sorry and cry to me for help, but I will not listen to them.
12
The people in the towns of Judah and in the city of Jerusalem will go and pray to their idols for help. They burn incense to those idols. But their idols will not be able to help the people of Judah when that terrible disaster comes.
13
"People of Judah, you have many idols�there are as many idols as there are towns in Judah. You have built many altars for worshiping that disgusting god Baal � there are as many altars as there are streets in Jerusalem.
14
"As for you, Jeremiah, don't pray for these people of Judah. Don't beg for them. Don't say prayers for them. I will not listen. They will suffer and then call to me for help, but I will not listen.
15
"Judah is the one I love, but why is she in my temple? She has done too many evil things. Judah, do you think vows and sacrifices will keep you from being destroyed? Will I then allow you to enjoy your evil ways?"
16
The Lord gave you a name. He called you, "A green olive tree, beautiful to look at." But with a powerful storm, the Lord will set that tree on fire, and its branches will be burned up.
17
The Lord All-Powerful planted you, and he said that disaster will come to you. That is because the family of Israel and the family of Judah have done evil things. They offered sacrifices to Baal, and that made him angry!
18
The Lord showed me that the men of Anathoth were making plans against me. The Lord showed me what they were doing, so I knew they were against me.
19
Before the Lord showed me that the people were against me, I was like a gentle lamb waiting to be butchered. I did not understand that they were against me. They were saying this about me: "Let us destroy the tree and its fruit! Let us kill him! Then people will forget him."
20
But, Lord, you are a fair judge. You know how to test people's hearts and minds. I will tell you my arguments, and I will let you give them the punishment they deserve.
21
The men from Anathoth were planning to kill Jeremiah. They said to him, "Don't prophesy in the name of the Lord, or we will kill you." The Lord made a decision about the men from Anathoth.
22
The Lord All-Powerful said, "I will soon punish these men from Anathoth. Their young men will die in war. Their sons and daughters will die from hunger.
23
No one from the city of Anathoth will be left. No one will survive. I will punish them and cause something bad to happen to them."

Jeremiah chapter 12

1
Lord, if I argue with you, you are always right. But I want to ask you about some things that don't seem right. Why are wicked people successful? Why do people you cannot trust have such easy lives?
2
You have put these wicked people here like plants with strong roots. They grow and produce fruit. With their mouths they say that you are near and dear to them, but in their hearts they are really far away from you.
3
But you know my heart, Lord. You see me and test my mind. Drag the evil people away like sheep to be killed. Choose them for the day of slaughter.
4
How much longer will the land be dry? How long will the grass be dry and dead? The birds and the animals of this land have all died, and it is the fault of the wicked. Yet they are saying, "Jeremiah will not live long enough to see what happens to us."
5
"Jeremiah, if you get tired running in a footrace with men, how will you race against horses? If you get tired in a safe place, what will you do in a dangerous place? What will you do in the thornbushes that grow along the Jordan River?
6
These men are your own brothers. Members of your own family are making plans against you. People from your own family are shouting at you. Don't trust them, even when they speak to you like friends.
7
"I have abandoned my house. I have left my own property. I have given Judah, the one I love, to her enemies.
8
My own people turned against me like a wild lion. They roared at me, so I turned away from them.
9
My own people have become like a dying animal surrounded by vultures. These birds are circling around her. Come on, wild animals. Come get something to eat.
10
Many shepherds have ruined my vineyard. They have trampled the plants in my field. They have made my beautiful field a desert.
11
They have turned it into an empty desert. It is dry and dead. The whole land has been ruined, and no one is left to care for it.
12
The empty hills are covered with soldiers who have come to destroy everything. The Lord is using them to punish that land from one end to the other. No one is safe.
13
The people will plant wheat, but they will harvest only thorns. They will work hard until they are very tired, but they will get nothing for all their work. They will be ashamed of their crop. The Lord's anger caused this."
14
This is what the Lord says: "I will tell you what I will do for all those who live around the land of Israel. They are very wicked. They have destroyed the land I gave to the people of Israel. I will pull the evil people up and throw them out of their land, and I will pull the people of Judah up with them.
15
But after I pull them up out of their land, I will feel sorry for them. I will bring each family back to its own property and to its own land.
16
I want these people to learn their lessons well. In the past they taught my people to use Baal's name to make promises. Now, I want them to learn to use my name. I want them to say, 'As the Lord lives �.' If they do that, I will allow them to be successful, and I will let them live among my people.
17
But if a nation does not listen to my message, I will completely destroy it. I will pull it up like a dead plant." This message is from the Lord.

John chapter 14

1
Jesus said, "Don't be troubled. Trust in God, and trust in me.
2
There are many rooms in my Father's house. I would not tell you this if it were not true. I am going there to prepare a place for you.
3
After I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back. Then I will take you with me, so that you can be where I am.
4
You know the way to the place where I am going."
5
Thomas said, "Lord, we don't know where you are going, so how can we know the way?"
6
Jesus answered, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. The only way to the Father is through me.
7
If you really knew me, you would know my Father too. But now you know the Father. You have seen him."
8
Philip said to him, "Lord, show us the Father. That is all we need."
9
Jesus answered, "Philip, I have been with you for a long time. So you should know me. Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father too. So why do you say, 'Show us the Father'?
10
Don't you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The things I have told you don't come from me. The Father lives in me, and he is doing his own work.
11
Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me. Or believe because of the miracles I have done.
12
"I can assure you that whoever believes in me will do the same things I have done. And they will do even greater things than I have done, because I am going to the Father.
13
And if you ask for anything in my name, I will do it for you. Then the Father's glory will be shown through the Son.
14
If you ask me for anything in my name, I will do it.
15
"If you love me, you will do what I command.
16
I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper to be with you forever.
17
The Helper is the Spirit of truth. The people of the world cannot accept him, because they don't see him or know him. But you know him. He lives with you, and he will be in you.
18
"I will not leave you all alone like orphans. I will come back to you.
19
In a very short time the people in the world will not see me anymore. But you will see me. You will live because I live.
20
On that day you will know that I am in the Father. You will know that you are in me and I am in you.
21
Those who really love me are the ones who not only know my commands but also obey them. My Father will love such people, and I will love them. I will make myself known to them."
22
Then Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, "Lord, how will you make yourself known to us, but not to the world?"
23
Jesus answered, "All who love me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them. My Father and I will come to them and live with them.
24
But anyone who does not love me does not obey my teaching. This teaching that you hear is not really mine. It is from my Father who sent me.
25
"I have told you all these things while I am with you.
26
But the Helper will teach you everything and cause you to remember all that I told you. This Helper is the Holy Spirit that the Father will send in my name.
27
"I leave you peace. It is my own peace I give you. I give you peace in a different way than the world does. So don't be troubled. Don't be afraid.
28
You heard me say to you, 'I am leaving, but I will come back to you.' If you loved me, you would be happy that I am going back to the Father, because the Father is greater than I am.
29
I have told you this now, before it happens. Then when it happens, you will believe.
30
"I will not talk with you much longer. The ruler of this world is coming. He has no power over me.
31
But the world must know that I love the Father. So I do exactly what the Father told me to do. "Come now, let's go."
