Baruch being dismayed,

45:1 The message that Jeremiah the prophet spoke to Baruch the son of Neriah, when he wrote these words in a book at the mouth of Jeremiah, in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, saying,

45:2 Thus says Yahweh, the God of Israel, to you, Baruch:

45:3 You said, Woe is me now! for Yahweh has added sorrow to my pain; I am weary with my groaning, and I find no rest.

Jeremiah instructs and comforts him.

45:4 You shall tell him,

Thus says Yahweh:

Behold, that which I have built will I break down,
and that which I have planted I will pluck up; *
and this in the whole land.

45:5 Do you seek great things for yourself?
Donít seek them;
for, behold, I will bring evil on all flesh,
says Yahweh;
but your life will I give to you for a prey in all places where you go.
