The Rechabites' Obedience

1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD in the days of Jehoiakim R1801 the son of Josiah, king of Judah, saying, 2 "Go to the house of the Rechabites R1802 and speak to them, and bring them into the house of the LORD, into one of the chambers, R1803 and give them wine to drink." 3 Then I took Jaazaniah the son of Jeremiah, son of Habazziniah, and his brothers and all his sons and the whole house of the Rechabites, 4 and I brought them into the house of the LORD, into the chamber of the sons of Hanan the son of Igdaliah, the man R1804 of God, which was near the chamber of the officials, which was above the chamber of Maaseiah the son of Shallum, the R1805 doorkeeper. 5 Then I set before the men F347 of the house of the Rechabites pitchers full of wine and cups; and I said to them, "Drink R1806 wine!" 6 But they said, "We will not drink wine, for Jonadab R1807 the son of Rechab, R1808 our father, commanded us, saying, `You shall not R1809 drink wine, you or your sons, forever. 7 `You shall not build a house, and you shall not sow seed and you shall not plant a vineyard or own one; but in tents R1810 you shall dwell all your days, that you may live many R1811 days in the land where you sojourn.' R1812 8 "We have obeyed R1813 the voice of Jonadab the son of Rechab, our father, in all that he commanded us, not to drink wine all our days, we, our wives, our sons or our daughters, 9 nor to build ourselves houses to dwell in; and we do R1814 not have vineyard or field or seed. 10 "We have only dwelt R1815 in tents, and have obeyed and have done according to all that Jonadab R1816 our father commanded us. 11 "But when Nebuchadnezzar R1817 king of Babylon came up against the land, we said, `Come and let us go R1818 to Jerusalem before the army of the Chaldeans and before the army of the Arameans.' So we have dwelt in Jerusalem."

Judah Rebuked

12 Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying, 13 "Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, `Go and say to the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, "Will R1819 you not receive instruction by listening to My words?" declares the LORD. 14 "The words R1820 of Jonadab the son of Rechab, which he commanded his sons not to drink wine, are observed. So they do not drink wine to this day, for they have obeyed their father's command. But I have spoken to you again R1821 F348 and again; yet you have not R1822 listened to Me. 15 "Also I have sent to you all My servants R1823 the prophets, sending them again F349 and again, saying: `Turn R1824 now every man from his evil way and amend your deeds, and do R1825 not go after other gods to worship them. Then you will dwell R1826 in the land which I have given to you and to your forefathers; but you have not inclined R1827 your ear or listened to Me. 16 `Indeed, the sons of Jonadab the son of Rechab have observed R1828 the command of their father which he commanded them, but this people has not listened to Me.' "' 17 "Therefore thus says the LORD, the God of hosts, the God of Israel, `Behold, I R1829 am bringing on Judah and on all the inhabitants of Jerusalem all the disaster that I have pronounced against them; because I spoke R1830 to them but they did not listen, and I have called them but they did not answer.' "

18 Then Jeremiah said to the house of the Rechabites, "Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, `Because you have obeyed R1831 the command of Jonadab your father, kept all his commands and done according to all that he commanded you; 19 therefore thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, "Jonadab the son of Rechab shall R1832 not lack a man to stand R1833 before Me always.""'
