I have put my words in your mouth See I have this day set you over the Nations and over the kingdoms to root Out and to pull down To destroy and to throw down to build And to plant Moreover the word of the Lord came to me Saying Jeremiah what do you see And I said I see a branch of an almond tree Then the Lord said to me you have seen Well For I am ready to perform my word And the word of the Lord came to me the Second time saying What do you see And I said I see a Boiling Pot and it is facing Away from the north Then the Lord said to me Out of the North Calamity shall Break Forth on all the inhabitants of the land For behold I am calling all the families Of the kingdoms of the north says the Lord They shall come and each one set his Throne at the entrance of the Gates of Jerusalem Against all its walls all around and Against all the cities of Judah I will utter my judgments against them Concerning all their wickedness Because they have forsaken me burned

Incense to other gods and worshiped The Works of their own hands Therefore prepare yourself and arise And speak to them all that I command you Do not be dismayed before their faces Lest I dismay you before them For behold I have made you this day a Fortified City and an iron pillar and Bronze walls against the whole land Against the kings of Judah against its Princes against its priests and against The people of the land They will fight against you but they Shall not Prevail against you for I Am With You says the Lord to deliver you
