The Book of Jeremiah Chapter 19 – New King James Version (NKJV) – Audio Bible

Chapter 19. Thus says the Lord Go and get a Potter's Earthen flask and Take some of the Elders of the people And some of the Elders of the priests And go out to the Valley of the son of Hinom which is by the entry of the pot Shirt gate And Proclaim there the words that I will Tell you And say Hear the word of the Lord O Kings of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem Thus says the Lord of hosts the god of Israel Behold I will bring such a catastrophe On this place that whoever hears of it His ears will tingle Because they have forsaken me and made This an alien place Because they have burned incense in it To other gods who neither they their Fathers nor the kings of Judah have Known And have filled this place with the Blood of the Innocents They have also built the high places of Baal to burn their sons with fire for Burnt offerings to Baal which I did not Command or speak nor did it come into my Mind Therefore behold the days are coming Says the Lord That this place shall no more be called

Tofit or the Valley of the son of hinom But the valley of Slaughter And I will make void the Council of Judah and Jerusalem in this place And I will cause them to Fall by the Sword before their enemies and by the Hands of those who seek their lives Their corpses I will give us meat for The birds of the heaven and for the Beasts of the Earth I will make this city desolate and a Hissing Everyone who passes by it will be Astonished and hiss because of all its Plagues And I will cause them to eat the Flesh Of their sons and the Flesh of their Daughters And everyone shall eat the Flesh of his Friend in The Siege and in the Desperation with which their enemies and Those who seek their lives shall drive Them to despair Then you shall break the flask in the Sight of the men who go with you and say To them Thus says the Lord of hosts Even so I will break this people and This city as one breaks a Potter's Vessel which cannot be made whole again And they shall bury them in tofit so There is no place to bury Thus I will do to this place says the Lord and to its inhabitants and make

This city like tofit And the houses of Jerusalem and the Houses of the kings of Judah shall be Defiled like the place of tofit because Of all the houses on Whose roofs they Have burned incense to all the hosts of Heaven and poured out drink offerings to Other gods Then Jeremiah came from tofit where the Lord had sent him to prophesy And he stood in the court of the Lord's House and said to all the people Thus says the Lord of hosts the god of Israel Behold I will bring on this city and on all her Towns all the Doom that I have Pronounced against it because they have Stiffened their necks that they might Not hear my words
