45The word that the prophet Jeremiah spoke to Baruch son of Neriah, when he wrote these words in a scroll at the dictation of Jeremiah, in the fourth year of King Jehoiakim son of Josiah of Judah:
2Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, to you, O Baruch:
3You said, Woe is me! The Lord has added sorrow to my pain; I am weary with my groaning, and I find no rest.
4Thus you shall say to him, Thus says the Lord: I am going to break down what I have built, and pluck up what I have plantedthat is, the whole land.
5And you, do you seek great things for yourself? Do not seek them; for I am going to bring disaster upon all flesh, says the Lord; but I will give you your life as a prize of war in every place to which you may go.
