1 Detta är det ord som profeten Jeremia talade till Baruk, Nerias son, när denne efter Jeremias diktamen tecknade upp dessa tal i en bok, under Jojakims, Josias sons, Juda konungs, fjärde regeringsår; han sade:

2 Så säger HE EN, Israels Gud, om dig, Baruk:

3 Du säger: »Ve mig, ty HE EN har lagt ny sorg till min förra plåga! Jag är så trött av suckande och finner ingen ro.»

4 Men så skall du svara honom: Så säger HE EN: Se, vad jag har byggt upp, det måste jag riva ned, och vad jag har planterat, det måste jag rycka upp; och detta gäller hela jorden.

5 Och du begär stora ting för dig! Begär icke något sådant; ty se, jag skall låta olycka komma över all kött, säger HE EN, men dig skall jag låta vinna ditt liv såsom ett byte, till vilken ort du än må gå.
