Jeremiah 13 King James Version (KJV)
Thus saith the LORD unto me, Go and get thee a linen girdle, and put it upon thy loins, and put it not in water.
So I got a girdle according to the word of the LORD, and put it on my loins.
And the word of the LORD came unto me the second time, saying,
Take the girdle that thou hast got, which is upon thy loins, and arise, go to Euphrates, and hide it there in a hole of the rock.
So I went, and hid it by Euphrates, as the LORD commanded me.
And it came to pass after many days, that the LORD said unto me, Arise, go to Euphrates, and take the girdle from thence, which I commanded thee to hide there.
Then I went to Euphrates, and digged, and took the girdle from the place where I had hid it: and, behold, the girdle was marred, it was profitable for nothing.
Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
Thus saith the LORD, After this manner will I mar the pride of Judah, and the great pride of Jerusalem.
This evil people, which refuse to hear my words, which walk in the imagination of their heart, and walk after other gods, to serve them, and to worship them, shall even be as this girdle, which is good for nothing.
For as the girdle cleaveth to the loins of a man, so have I caused to cleave unto me the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah, saith the LORD; that they might be unto me for a people, and for a name, and for a praise, and for a glory: but they would not hear.
Therefore thou shalt speak unto them this word; Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Every bottle shall be filled with wine: and they shall say unto thee, Do we not certainly know that every bottle shall be filled with wine?
Then shalt thou say unto them, Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will fill all the inhabitants of this land, even the kings that sit upon David’s throne, and the priests, and the prophets, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, with drunkenness.
And I will dash them one against another, even the fathers and the sons together, saith the LORD: I will not pity, nor spare, nor have mercy, but destroy them.
Hear ye, and give ear; be not proud: for the LORD hath spoken.
Give glory to the LORD your God, before he cause darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and, while ye look for light, he turn it into the shadow of death, and make it gross darkness.
But if ye will not hear it, my soul shall weep in secret places for your pride; and mine eye shall weep sore, and run down with tears, because the LORD’s flock is carried away captive.
Say unto the king and to the queen, Humble yourselves, sit down: for your principalities shall come down, even the crown of your glory.
The cities of the south shall be shut up, and none shall open them: Judah shall be carried away captive all of it, it shall be wholly carried away captive.
Lift up your eyes, and behold them that come from the north: where is the flock that was given thee, thy beautiful flock?
What wilt thou say when he shall punish thee? for thou hast taught them to be captains, and as chief over thee: shall not sorrows take thee, as a woman in travail?
And if thou say in thine heart, Wherefore come these things upon me? For the greatness of thine iniquity are thy skirts discovered, and thy heels made bare.
Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.
Therefore will I scatter them as the stubble that passeth away by the wind of the wilderness.
This is thy lot, the portion of thy measures from me, saith the LORD; because thou hast forgotten me, and trusted in falsehood.
Therefore will I discover thy skirts upon thy face, that thy shame may appear.
I have seen thine adulteries, and thy neighings, the lewdness of thy whoredom, and thine abominations on the hills in the fields. Woe unto thee, O Jerusalem! wilt thou not be made clean? when shall it once be?

13:1 Lo, mine eye hath seen all this, mine ear hath heard and understood it.13:2 What ye know, the same do I know also: I am not inferior unto you.13:3 Surely I would speak to the Almighty, and I desire to reason with God.13:4 But ye are forgers of lies, ye are all physicians of no value.13:5 O that ye would altogether hold your peace! and it should be your wisdom.13:6 Hear now my reasoning, and hearken to the pleadings of my lips.13:7 Will ye speak wickedly for God? and talk deceitfully for him?13:8 Will ye accept his person? will ye contend for God?13:9 Is it good that he should search you out? or as one man mocketh another, do ye so mock him?13:10 He will surely reprove you, if ye do secretly accept persons.13:11 Shall not his excellency make you afraid? and his dread fall upon you?13:12 Your remembrances are like unto ashes, your bodies to bodies of clay.13:13 Hold your peace, let me alone, that I may speak, and let come on me what will.13:14 Wherefore do I take my flesh in my teeth, and put my life in mine hand?13:15 Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.13:16 He also shall be my salvation: for an hypocrite shall not come before him.13:17 Hear diligently my speech, and my declaration with your ears.13:18 Behold now, I have ordered my cause; I know that I shall be justified.13:19 Who is he that will plead with me? for now, if I hold my tongue, I shall give up the ghost.13:20 Only do not two things unto me: then will I not hide myself from thee.13:21 Withdraw thine hand far from me: and let not thy dread make me afraid.13:22 Then call thou, and I will answer: or let me speak, and answer thou me.13:23 How many are mine iniquities and sins? make me to know my transgression and my sin.13:24 Wherefore hidest thou thy face, and holdest me for thine enemy?13:25 Wilt thou break a leaf driven to and fro? and wilt thou pursue the dry stubble?13:26 For thou writest bitter things against me, and makest me to possess the iniquities of my youth.13:27 Thou puttest my feet also in the stocks, and lookest narrowly unto all my paths; thou settest a print upon the heels of my feet.13:28 And he, as a rotten thing, consumeth, as a garment that is moth eaten.
