27 Now, after the king had burned the scroll with the words that Baruch wrote at Jeremiahs dictation, the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah: 28Take another scroll and write on it all the former words that were in the first scroll, which King Jehoiakim of Judah has burned. 29And concerning King Jehoiakim of Judah you shall say: Thus says the Lord, You have dared to burn this scroll, saying, Why have you written in it that the king of Babylon will certainly come and destroy this land, and will cut off from it human beings and animals? 30Therefore thus says the Lord concerning King Jehoiakim of Judah: He shall have no one to sit upon the throne of David, and his dead body shall be cast out to the heat by day and the frost by night. 31And I will punish him and his offspring and his servants for their iniquity; I will bring on them, and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and on the people of Judah, all the disasters with which I have threatened thembut they would not listen.
32 Then Jeremiah took another scroll and gave it to the secretary Baruch son of Neriah, who wrote on it at Jeremiahs dictation all the words of the scroll that King Jehoiakim of Judah had burned in the fire; and many similar words were added to them.
38 After leaving the synagogue he entered Simons house. Now Simons mother-in-law was suffering from a high fever, and they asked him about her. 39Then he stood over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her. Immediately she got up and began to serve them.
40 As the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with various kinds of diseases brought them to him; and he laid his hands on each of them and cured them. 41Demons also came out of many, shouting, You are the Son of God! But he rebuked them and would not allow them to speak, because they knew that he was the Messiah.*
42 At daybreak he departed and went into a deserted place. And the crowds were looking for him; and when they reached him, they wanted to prevent him from leaving them. 43But he said to them, I must proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God to the other cities also; for I was sent for this purpose. 44So he continued proclaiming the message in the synagogues of Judea.*
89 O Lord, your word is everlasting;
it ever stands firm in the heavens.
90 Your faithfulness also remains from one generation to another;
you have established the earth and it abides.
91 So also your judgements stand firm this day,
for all things are your servants.
92 If your law had not been my delight,
I should have perished in my trouble.
93 I will never forget your commandments,
for by them you have given me life.
94 I am yours, O save me!
For I have sought your commandments.
95 The wicked have waited for me to destroy me,
but I will meditate on your testimonies.
96 I have seen an end of all perfection,
but your commandment knows no bounds.
