13 And I charged Baruch before them, saying, 14 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Take these #evidences, this evidence of the purchase, both which is #sealed, and this #evidencewhichisopen; and #puttheminanearthen#vessel, that they may continue many days.15 For thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; #housesand fieldsandvineyards shall be possessed again in this land.16 Now when I had delivered the evidence of the purchase unto Baruch the son of Neriah, I prayed unto the Lord, saying, 17 Ah Lord God! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee: 18 Thou shewest lovingkindness unto thousands, and recompensest the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them: the Great, the Mighty God, the Lord of hosts, is his name, 19 Great in counsel, and mighty in work: for thine eyes are open upon all the ways of the sons of men: to give every one according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings: 20 #whichhastsetsignsandwonders in the land #ofegypt, even #untothisday, and in Israel, and among other men; and hast made thee a name, as at this day; 21 And hast brought forth thy people Israel out of the land of Egypt with #signs, and with #wonders, and with a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm, and #withgreatterror; 22 And hast given them this land, which thou didst swear to their fathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey; 23 And they came in, and possessed it; but #theyobeyednotthyvoice, neither #walkedinthylaw; they have done nothing of all that thou #commandedst them to do: #thereforethouhastcausedallthisevil to #comeuponthem: 24 Behold the #mounts, they are come unto the city to take it; and the city is given into the hand of the #chaldeans, that fight against it, because of #thesword, and of the #famine, and of the #pestilence: and what thou hast spoken is come to pass; and, behold, thou seest it. 25 And thou
Jeremiah 32 The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord in the tenth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, which was the eighteenth year of Nebuchadrezzar. 2 For then the king of Babylon's army besieged Jerusalem: and Jeremiah the prophet was #shutupinthecourt#oftheprison, which was in the king of Judah's house. 3 For Zedekiah king of Judah had shut him up, saying, Wherefore dost thou #prophesy, and say, Thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will give this city into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall take it; 4 And Zedekiah king of Judah shall not escape out of the hand of the #chaldeans, but shall surely be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon, and shall speak with him mouth to mouth, and his eyes shall #behold his eyes; 5 And he shall lead Zedekiah to Babylon, and there shall he be until I visit him, saith the Lord: though ye fight with the Chaldeans, ye shall not prosper. 6 And Jeremiah said, The word of the Lord came unto me, saying, 7 Behold, Hanameel the son of Shallum thine uncle shall come unto thee saying, Buy thee my field that is in Anathoth: for the right of redemption is thine to buy it. 8 So Hanameel mine uncle's son came to me in the court of the prison according to the word of the Lord, and said unto me, Buy my field, I pray thee, that is in Anathoth, which is in the country of Benjamin: for the right of inheritance is thine, and the redemption is thine; buy it for thyself. Then I knew that this was the word of the Lord. 9 And I bought the field of Hanameel my uncle's son, that was in Anathoth, and weighed him the money, even seventeen shekels of silver. 10 And I subscribed the evidence, and sealed it, and took witnesses, and weighed him the money in the balances. 11 So I took the evidence of the purchase, both that which was sealed according to the law and custom, and that which was open: 12 And I gave the evidence of the purchase unto Baruch the son of Neriah, the son of Maaseiah, in the sight of Hanameel mine uncle's son, and in the
In drought stricken Nigeria, 60-year-old farmer Hawa struggles daily to provide enough food for her family. Farming on a tiny plot of dry and dusty land in Maiduguri, she'll often only eat once a day - something that is hard to imagine for us living with plenty of food in New Zealand.⠀ ⠀ We're asking NZers to #skiptosavelives and forgo that (unnecessary 😉) treat in support of children in east Africa who are facing a terrible famine. It's so easy to bring your own lunch to work or uni instead of eating out, and that $12 you would have spent on an overpriced salad will help feed 20 meals to starving kids!
