The Book of Baruch
{1:1} And these are the words of the book, which Baruch
the son of Nerias, the son of Maasias, the son of Sedecias,
the son of Asadias, the son of Chelcias, wrote in Babylon,
{1:2} In the fifth year, and in the seventh day of the
month, what time as the Chaldeans took Jerusalem, and
burnt it with fire.
{1:3} And Baruch did read the words of this book in the
hearing of Jechonias the son of Joachim king of Juda, and in
the ears of all the people that came to hear the book,
{1:4} And in the hearing of the nobles, and of the king’s
sons, and in the hearing of the elders, and of all the people,
from the lowest unto the highest, even of all them that dwelt
at Babylon by the river Sud.
{1:5} Whereupon they wept, fasted, and prayed before the
{1:6} They made also a collection of money according to
every man’s power:
{1:7} And they sent it to Jerusalem unto Joachim the high
priest, the son of Chelcias, son of Salom, and to the priests,
and to all the people which were found with him at
{1:8} At the same time when he received the vessels of
the house of the Lord, that were carried out of the temple, to
return them into the land of Juda, the tenth day of the month
Sivan, namely, silver vessels, which Sedecias the son of
Josias king of Jada had made,
{1:9} After that Nabuchodonosor king of Babylon had
carried away Jechonias, and the princes, and the captives,
and the mighty men, and the people of the land, from
Jerusalem, and brought them unto Babylon.
{1:10} And they said, Behold, we have sent you money to
buy you burnt offerings, and sin offerings, and incense, and
prepare ye manna, and offer upon the altar of the Lord our
{1:11} And pray for the life of Nabuchodonosor king of
Babylon, and for the life of Balthasar his son, that their days
may be upon earth as the days of heaven:
{1:12} And the Lord will give us strength, and lighten our
eyes, and we shall live under the shadow of
Nabuchodonosor king of Babylon, and under the shadow of
Balthasar his son, and we shall serve them many days, and
find favour in their sight.
{1:13} Pray for us also unto the Lord our God, for we
have sinned against the Lord our God; and unto this day the
fury of the Lord and his wrath is not turned from us.
{1:14} And ye shall read this book which we have sent
unto you, to make confession in the house of the Lord, upon
the feasts and solemn days.
{1:15} And ye shall say, To the Lord our God belongeth
righteousness, but unto us the confusion of faces, as it is
come to pass this day, unto them of Juda, and to the
inhabitants of Jerusalem,
{1:16} And to our kings, and to our princes, and to our
priests, and to our prophets, and to our fathers:
{1:17} For we have sinned before the Lord,
{1:18} And disobeyed him, and have not hearkened unto
the voice of the Lord our God, to walk in the
commandments that he gave us openly:
{1:19} Since the day that the Lord brought our forefathers
out of the land of Egypt, unto this present day, we have
been disobedient unto the Lord our God, and we have been
negligent in not hearing his voice.
{1:20} Wherefore the evils cleaved unto us, and the curse,
which the Lord appointed by Moses his servant at the time
that he brought our fathers out of the land of Egypt, to give
us a land that floweth with milk and honey, like as it is to
see this day.
{1:21} Nevertheless we have not hearkened unto the
voice of the Lord our God, according unto all the words of
the prophets, whom he sent unto us:
{1:22} But every man followed the imagination of his
own wicked heart, to serve strange gods, and to do evil in
the sight of the Lord our God.
{2:1} Therefore the Lord hath made good his word, which
he pronounced against us, and against our judges that
judged Israel, and against our kings, and against our princes,
and against the men of Israel and Juda,
{2:2} To bring upon us great plagues, such as never
happened under the whole heaven, as it came to pass in
Jerusalem, according to the things that were written in the
law of Moses;
{2:3} That a man should eat the flesh of his own son, and
the flesh of his own daughter.
{2:4} Moreover he hath delivered them to be in subjection
to all the kingdoms that are round about us, to be as a
reproach and desolation among all the people round about,
where the Lord hath scattered them.
{2:5} Thus we were cast down, and not exalted, because
we have sinned against the Lord our God, and have not been
obedient unto his voice.
{2:6} To the Lord our God appertaineth righteousness:
but unto us and to our fathers open shame, as appeareth this
{2:7} For all these plagues are come upon us, which the
Lord hath pronounced against us
{2:8} Yet have we not prayed before the Lord, that we
might turn every one from the imaginations of his wicked
{2:9} Wherefore the Lord watched over us for evil, and
the Lord hath brought it upon us: for the Lord is righteous in
all his works which he hath commanded us.
{2:10} Yet we have not hearkened unto his voice, to walk
in the commandments of the Lord, that he hath set before us.
Baruch Page 636
{2:11} And now, O Lord God of Israel, that hast brought
thy people out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and
high arm, and with signs, and with wonders, and with great
power, and hast gotten thyself a name, as appeareth this day:
{2:12} O Lord our God, we have sinned, we have done
ungodly, we have dealt unrighteously in all thine ordinances.
{2:13} Let thy wrath turn from us: for we are but a few
left among the heathen, where thou hast scattered us.
{2:14} Hear our prayers, O Lord, and our petitions, and
deliver us for thine own sake, and give us favour in the sight
of them which have led us away:
{2:15} That all the earth may know that thou art the Lord
our God, because Israel and his posterity is called by thy
{2:16} O Lord, look down from thine holy house, and
consider us: bow down thine ear, O Lord, to hear us.
{2:17} Open thine eyes, and behold; for the dead that are
in the graves, whose souls are taken from their bodies, will
give unto the Lord neither praise nor righteousness:
{2:18} But the soul that is greatly vexed, which goeth
stooping and feeble, and the eyes that fail, and the hungry
soul, will give thee praise and righteousness, O Lord.
{2:19} Therefore we do not make our humble
supplication before thee, O Lord our God, for the
righteousness of our fathers, and of our kings.
{2:20} For thou hast sent out thy wrath and indignation
upon us, as thou hast spoken by thy servants the prophets,
{2:21} Thus saith the Lord, Bow down your shoulders to
serve the king of Babylon: so shall ye remain in the land
that I gave unto your fathers.
{2:22} But if ye will not hear the voice of the Lord, to
serve the king of Babylon,
{2:23} I will cause to cease out of the cites of Judah, and
from without Jerusalem, the voice of mirth, and the voice of
joy, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride:
and the whole land shall be desolate of inhabitants.
{2:24} But we would not hearken unto thy voice, to serve
the king of Babylon: therefore hast thou made good the
words that thou spakest by thy servants the prophets,
namely, that the bones of our kings, and the bones of our
fathers, should be taken out of their place.
{2:25} And, lo, they are cast out to the heat of the day,
and to the frost of the night, and they died in great miseries
by famine, by sword, and by pestilence.
{2:26} And the house which is called by thy name hast
thou laid waste, as it is to be seen this day, for the
wickedness of the house of Israel and the house of Juda.
{2:27} O Lord our God, thou hast dealt with us after all
thy goodness, and according to all that great mercy of thine,
{2:28} As thou spakest by thy servant Moses in the day
when thou didst command him to write the law before the
children of Israel, saying,
{2:29} If ye will not hear my voice, surely this very great
multitude shall be turned into a small number among the
nations, where I will scatter them.
{2:30} For I knew that they would not hear me, because it
is a stiffnecked people: but in the land of their captivities
they shall remember themselves.
{2:31} And shall know that I am the Lord their God: for I
will give them an heart, and ears to hear:
{2:32} And they shall praise me in the land of their
captivity, and think upon my name,
{2:33} And return from their stiff neck, and from their
wicked deeds: for they shall remember the way of their
fathers, which sinned before the Lord.
{2:34} And I will bring them again into the land which I
promised with an oath unto their fathers, Abraham, Isaac,
and Jacob, and they shall be lords of it: and I will increase
them, and they shall not be diminished.
{2:35} And I will make an everlasting covenant with
them to be their God, and they shall be my people: and I
will no more drive my people of Israel out of the land that I
have given them.
{3:1} O Lord Almighty, God of Israel, the soul in anguish
the troubled spirit, crieth unto thee.
{3:2} Hear, O Lord, and have mercy; ar thou art merciful:
and have pity upon us, because we have sinned before thee.
{3:3} For thou endurest for ever, and we perish utterly.
{3:4} O Lord Almighty, thou God of Israel, hear now the
prayers of the dead Israelites, and of their children, which
have sinned before thee, and not hearkened unto the voice
of thee their God: for the which cause these plagues cleave
unto us.
{3:5} Remember not the iniquities of our forefathers: but
think upon thy power and thy name now at this time.
{3:6} For thou art the Lord our God, and thee, O Lord,
will we praise.
{3:7} And for this cause thou hast put thy fear in our
hearts, to the intent that we should call upon thy name, and
praise thee in our captivity: for we have called to mind all
the iniquity of our forefathers, that sinned before thee.
{3:8} Behold, we are yet this day in our captivity, where
thou hast scattered us, for a reproach and a curse, and to be
subject to payments, according to all the iniquities of our
fathers, which departed from the Lord our God.
{3:9} Hear, Israel, the commandments of life: give ear to
understand wisdom.
{3:10} How happeneth it Israel, that thou art in thine
enemies’ land, that thou art waxen old in a strange country,
that thou art defiled with the dead,
{3:11} That thou art counted with them that go down into
the grave?
Page 637 Baruch
{3:12} Thou hast forsaken the fountain of wisdom.
{3:13} For if thou hadst walked in the way of God, thou
shouldest have dwelled in peace for ever.
{3:14} Learn where is wisdom, where is strength, where
is understanding; that thou mayest know also where is
length of days, and life, where is the light of the eyes, and
{3:15} Who hath found out her place? or who hath come
into her treasures ?
{3:16} Where are the princes of the heathen become, and
such as ruled the beasts upon the earth;
{3:17} They that had their pastime with the fowls of the
air, and they that hoarded up silver and gold, wherein men
trust, and made no end of their getting?
{3:18} For they that wrought in silver, and were so
careful, and whose works are unsearchable,
{3:19} They are vanished and gone down to the grave,
and others are come up in their steads.
{3:20} Young men have seen light, and dwelt upon the
earth: but the way of knowledge have they not known,
{3:21} Nor understood the paths thereof, nor laid hold of
it: their children were far off from that way.
{3:22} It hath not been heard of in Chanaan, neither hath
it been seen in Theman.
{3:23} The Agarenes that seek wisdom upon earth, the
merchants of Meran and of Theman, the authors of fables,
and searchers out of understanding; none of these have
known the way of wisdom, or remember her paths.
{3:24} O Israel, how great is the house of God! and how
large is the place of his possession!
{3:25} Great, and hath none end; high, and unmeasurable.
{3:26} There were the giants famous from the beginning,
that were of so great stature, and so expert in war.
{3:27} Those did not the Lord choose, neither gave he the
way of knowledge unto them:
{3:28} But they were destroyed, because they had no
wisdom, and perished through their own foolishness.
{3:29} Who hath gone up into heaven, and taken her, and
brought her down from the clouds?
{3:30} Who hath gone over the sea, and found her, and
will bring her for pure gold?
{3:31} No man knoweth her way, nor thinketh of her path.
{3:32} But he that knoweth all things knoweth her, and
hath found her out with his understanding: he that prepared
the earth for evermore hath filled it with fourfooted beasts:
{3:33} He that sendeth forth light, and it goeth, calleth it
again, and it obeyeth him with fear.
{3:34} The stars shined in their watches, and rejoiced:
when he calleth them, they say, Here we be; and so with
cheerfulness they shewed light unto him that made them.
{3:35} This is our God, and there shall none other be
accounted of in comparison of him
{3:36} He hath found out all the way of knowledge, and
hath given it unto Jacob his servant, and to Israel his
{3:37} Afterward did he shew himself upon earth, and
conversed with men.
{4:1} This is the book of the commandments of God, and
the law that endureth for ever: all they that keep it shall
come to life; but such as leave it shall die.
{4:2} Turn thee, O Jacob, and take hold of it: walk in the
presence of the light thereof, that thou mayest be
{4:3} Give not thine honour to another, nor the things that
are profitable unto thee to a strange nation.
{4:4} O Israel, happy are we: for things that are pleasing
to God are made known unto us.
{4:5} Be of good cheer, my people, the memorial of Israel.
{4:6} Ye were sold to the nations, not for [your]
destruction: but because ye moved God to wrath, ye were
delivered unto the enemies.
{4:7} For ye provoked him that made you by sacrificing
unto devils, and not to God.
{4:8} Ye have forgotten the everlasting God, that brought
you up; and ye have grieved Jerusalem, that nursed you.
{4:9} For when she saw the wrath of God coming upon
you, she said, Hearken, O ye that dwell about Sion: God
hath brought upon me great mourning;
{4:10} For I saw the captivity of my sons and daughters,
which the Everlasting brought upon them.
{4:11} With joy did I nourish them; but sent them away
with weeping and mourning.
{4:12} Let no man rejoice over me, a widow, and
forsaken of many, who for the sins of my children am left
desolate; because they departed from the law of God.
{4:13} They knew not his statutes, nor walked in the ways
of his commandments, nor trod in the paths of discipline in
his righteousness.
{4:14} Let them that dwell about Sion come, and
remember ye the captivity of my sons and daughters, which
the Everlasting hath brought upon them.
{4:15} For he hath brought a nation upon them from far, a
shameless nation, and of a strange language, who neither
reverenced old man, nor pitied child.
{4:16} These have carried away the dear beloved children
of the widow, and left her that was alone desolate without
Baruch Page 638
{4:17} But what can I help you?
{4:18} For he that brought these plagues upon you will
deliver you from the hands of your enemies.
{4:19} Go your way, O my children, go your way: for I
am left desolate.
{4:20} I have put off the clothing of peace, and put upon
me the sackcloth of my prayer: I will cry unto the
Everlasting in my days.
{4:21} Be of good cheer, O my children, cry unto the
Lord, and he will deliver you from the power and hand of
the enemies.
{4:22} For my hope is in the Everlasting, that he will save
you; and joy is come unto me from the Holy One, because
of the mercy which shall soon come unto you from the
Everlasting our Saviour.
{4:23} For I sent you out with mourning and weeping: but
God will give you to me again with joy and gladness for
{4:24} Like as now the neighbours of Sion have seen your
captivity: so shall they see shortly your salvation from our
God which shall come upon you with great glory, and
brightness of the Everlasting.
{4:25} My children, suffer patiently the wrath that is
come upon you from God: for thine enemy hath persecuted
thee; but shortly thou shalt see his destruction, and shalt
tread upon his neck.
{4:26} My delicate ones have gone rough ways, and were
taken away as a flock caught of the enemies.
{4:27} Be of good comfort, O my children, and cry unto
God: for ye shall be remembered of him that brought these
things upon you.
{4:28} For as it was your mind to go astray from God: so,
being returned, seek him ten times more.
{4:29} For he that hath brought these plagues upon you
shall bring you everlasting joy with your salvation.
{4:30} Take a good heart, O Jerusalem: for he that gave
thee that name will comfort thee.
{4:31} Miserable are they that afflicted thee, and rejoiced
at thy fall.
{4:32} Miserable are the cities which thy children served:
miserable is she that received thy sons.
{4:33} For as she rejoiced at thy ruin, and was glad of thy
fall: so shall she be grieved for her own desolation.
{4:34} For I will take away the rejoicing of her great
multitude, and her pride shall be turned into mourning.
{4:35} For fire shall come upon her from the Everlasting,
long to endure; and she shall be inhabited of devils for a
great time.
{4:36} O Jerusalem, look about thee toward the east, and
behold the joy that cometh unto thee from God.
