City of Push Comes to Shove

Terror All Around
 Now Pashhur the priest, the son of Immer, who was chief officer in the house of HaShem, heard Jeremiah prophesying these things.
Then Pashhur beat Jeremiah the prophet and put him in the stocks that were in the upper Benjamin Gate of the house of HaShem.
On the morrow, when Pashhur released Jeremiah from the stocks, Jeremiah said to him, “The L-RD does not call your name Pashhur, but Terror on every side.
For thus says HaShem: Behold, I will make you a terror to yourself and to all your friends. They shall fall by the sword of their enemies while you look on. And I will give all Judah into the hand of the king of Babylon; he shall carry them captive to Babylon, and shall slay them with the sword.
Moreover, I will give all the wealth of the city, all its gains, all its prized belongings, and all the treasures of the kings of Judah into the hand of their enemies, who shall plunder them, and seize them, and carry them to Babylon.
And you, Pashhur, and all who dwell in your house, shall go into captivity; to Babylon, you shall go; and there you shall die, and there you shall be buried, you and all your friends, to whom you have prophesied falsely.” 
Denunciation of Persecutors
 O L-RD, thou hast enticed me, and I was enticed; thou art stronger than I, and thou hast prevailed. I have become a laughingstock all the day; everyone mocks me.
For whenever I speak, I cry out, I shout, “Violence and destruction!” For the word of the L-RD has become for me a reproach and derision all day long.
If I say, “I will not mention him, or speak any more in his name,” there is in my heart as it were a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I am weary with holding it in, and I cannot.
For I hear many whispering. Terror is on every side! “Denounce him! Let us denounce him!” say all my familiar friends, watching for my fall. “Perhaps he will be deceived, then we can overcome him, and take our revenge on him.”
But HaShem is with me as a dread warrior; therefore my persecutors will stumble, they will not overcome me. They will be greatly shamed, for they will not succeed. Their eternal dishonor will never be forgotten.
O L-RD of hosts, who triest the righteous, who seest the heart and the mind, let me see thy vengeance upon them, for to thee have I committed my cause.
Sing to HaShem; praise HaShem! For he has delivered the life of the needy from the hand of evildoers.
Cursed be the day on which I was born! The day when my mother bore me, let it not be blessed!
Cursed be the man who brought the news to my father, “A son is born to you,” making him very glad.
Let that man be like the cities which HaShem overthrew without pity; let him hear a cry in the morning and an alarm at noon because he did not kill me in the womb; so my mother would have been my grave, and her womb for ever great.
Why did I come forth from the womb to see toil and sorrow, and spend my days in shame?

New Jerusalem Falls to New Babylon
  This is the word which came to Jeremiah from HaShem, when King Zedeki’ah sent to him Pashhur the son of Malchi’ah and Zephani’ah the priest, the son of Ma-asei’ah, saying,
“Inquire of HaShem for us, for Nebuchadrez’zar king of Babylon is making war against us; perhaps HaShem will deal with us according to all his wonderful deeds, and will make him withdraw from us.”
Then Jeremiah said to them:
“Thus you shall say to Zedeki’ah, `Thus says HaShem, the G-d of Israel: Behold, I will turn back the weapons of war which are in your hands and with which you are fighting against the king of Babylon and against the Chalde’ans who are besieging you outside the walls; and I will bring them together into the midst of this city.
I myself will fight against you with outstretched hand and strong arm, in anger, and in fury, and in great wrath.
And I will smite the inhabitants of this city, both man and beast; they shall die of a great pestilence.
Afterward, says HaShem, I will give Zedeki’ah king of Judah, and his servants, and the people in this city who survive the pestilence, sword, and famine, into the hand of Nebuchadrez’zar king of Babylon and into the hand of their enemies, into the hand of those who seek their lives. He shall smite them with the edge of the sword; he shall not pity them, or spare them, or have compassion.’
“And to this people you shall say: `Thus says HaShem: Behold, I set before you the way of life and the way of death.
He who stays in this city shall die by the sword, by famine, and by pestilence; but he who goes out and surrenders to the Chalde’ans who are besieging you shall live and shall have his life as a prize of war.
For I have set my face against this city for evil and not for good, says HaShem: it shall be given into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall burn it with fire.’
Message to House of David
“And to the house of the king of Judah say, `Hear the word of HaShem,
O house of David! Thus says HaShem: “`Execute justice in the morning, and deliver from the hand of the oppressor him who has been robbed, lest my wrath go forth like fire, and burn with none to quench it, because of your evil doings.'”
“Behold, I am against you, O inhabitant of the valley, O rock of the plain, says HaShem; you who say, `Who shall come down against us, or who shall enter our habitations?’
I will punish you according to the fruit of your doings, says HaShem; I will kindle a fire in her forest, and it shall devour all that is round about her.”
Thanksgiving for Vindication
A Psalm. A Song for the Sabbath.
It is good to give thanks to the L-RD, to sing praises to thy Name, O Most High;
to declare thy steadfast love in the morning, and thy faithfulness by night,
to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre.
For thou, O L-RD, hast made me glad by thy work; at the works of thy hands, I sing for joy.
How great are thy works, O L-RD! Thy thoughts are very deep!
The dull man cannot know, the stupid cannot understand this:
that, though the wicked sprout like grass and all evildoers flourish, they are doomed to destruction forever, but thou, O L-RD, art on high forever.
For, lo, thy enemies, O L-RD, for, lo, thy enemies shall perish; all evildoers shall be scattered.
But thou hast exalted my horn like that of the wild ox; thou hast poured over me fresh oil.
My eyes have seen the downfall of my enemies, my ears have heard the doom of my evil assailants.
The righteous flourish like the palm tree and grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
They are planted in the house of HaShem, they flourish in the courts of our G-d.
They still bring forth fruit in old age, they are ever full of sap and green,
to show that HaShem is upright; he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
