1 The word which came to Jeremiah from Yahweh in the days of Jehoiakim son of Josiah, king of Judah,
2Kgs 23:35 Jer 1:3 Jer 25:1 2Chr 36:5-8 2Kgs 24:1-6 Dan 1:1 Jer 22:13-19
2 'Go to the clan of the Rechabites and speak to them; bring them into one of the rooms of the Temple of Yahweh and offer them wine to drink.'
1Chr 2:55 1Chr 9:26 1Kgs 6:5-6 1Chr 9:33 1Chr 23:28 1Kgs 6:10 2Chr 3:9
3 So I took Jaazaniah son of Jeremiah, son of Habazziniah, with his brothers and all his sons, the whole Rechabite clan,
4 and brought them to the Temple of Yahweh into the room of Ben-Johanan son of Igdaliah, a man of God, which was next to that of the chief men, above the room of Maaseiah son of Shallum, guardian of the threshold.
Deut 33:1 2Chr 8:14 2Kgs 12:9 1Chr 9:18-19 1Kgs 12:22 2Kgs 1:9 2Kgs 1:11-13
5 I then set pitchers full of wine, and some cups, before the members of the Rechabite clan and said, 'Drink some wine.'
Amos 2:12 2Cor 2:9 Eccl 9:7 Jer 35:2
6 But they replied, 'We do not drink wine, because our ancestor Jonadab son of Rechab gave us this order, "You must not drink wine, neither you nor your sons for ever;
2Kgs 10:15 1Chr 2:55 Lev 10:9 Luke 1:15 Judg 13:7 Judg 13:14 1Chr 16:19
7 nor must you build houses, sow seed, plant vineyards or own them, but must live in tents all your lives, so that you may live long on the soil to which you are alien."
Eph 6:2-3 Exod 20:12 Gen 25:27 1Pet 2:11 Eph 5:18 Heb 11:9-13 Jer 35:10
8 We have punctiliously obeyed the orders of our ancestor, Jonadab son of Rechab, never drinking wine ourselves, nor our wives, our sons or our daughters,
Col 3:20 Prov 1:8-9 Prov 4:1-2 Prov 4:10 Prov 6:20 Prov 13:1
9 not building houses to live in, owning neither vineyard nor field nor seed,
1Tim 6:6 Jer 35:7 Ps 37:16 2Kgs 5:26 Num 16:14
10 living in tents. We have obeyed the orders of our ancestor Jonadab, respecting them in every particular.
11 However, when Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon invaded this country, we decided, "We must get away! We will go to Jerusalem to escape the armies of the Chaldaeans and Aramaeans." So that is why we are living in Jerusalem.'
Jer 8:14 2Kgs 24:1-2 Dan 1:1-2 Jer 4:5-7 Luke 21:20-21 Mark 13:14
12 Then the word of Yahweh came to Jeremiah as follows,
13 'Yahweh Sabaoth, the God of Israel, says this, "Go and say to the people of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem: Will you never learn the lesson and listen to my words, Yahweh demands?
Jer 5:3 Jer 32:33 Isa 28:9-12 Jer 6:8-10 Heb 12:25 Isa 42:23 Jer 9:12
14 The words of Jonadab son of Rechab, ordering his sons to drink no wine, have been observed; obedient to their ancestor's command, they drink none even today . But to me, who spoke to you so urgently, so untiringly, you have not listened.
Isa 30:9 Jer 7:13 Isa 50:2 Jer 11:7 Jer 25:3-4 2Chr 36:15-16 Jer 7:24-26
15 I have urgently and untiringly sent you all my servants the prophets to say: Turn back, each one of you, from your evil behaviour and amend your actions, do not follow other gods to serve them, and you will go on living on the soil I gave to you and your ancestors. But you have not paid attention or listened to me.
Jer 18:11 Jer 25:5-6 Acts 26:20 Ezek 18:30-32 Jer 7:3-7 Jer 17:20-25 1Thess 4:8
16 Thus the sons of Jonadab son of Rechab have kept the command their ancestor gave them, but this people has not listened to me.
Mal 1:6 Jer 35:14 Isa 1:3 Luke 15:11-13 Luke 15:28-30 Matt 11:28-30
17 And so, Yahweh, God Sabaoth, God of Israel, says this: Look, on Judah and the citizens of Jerusalem I am going to bring all the disaster which I have decreed for them, because I spoke to them and they would not listen, called to them and they would not answer."'
Isa 66:4 Isa 65:12 Jer 7:13 Rom 10:21 Isa 50:2 Jer 7:26-27 Jer 11:8
18 Then Jeremiah said to the Rechabite clan, 'Yahweh Sabaoth, the God of Israel, says this, "Because you have obeyed the orders of your ancestor Jonadab and observed all his rules and done everything he ordered you to do,
Eph 6:1-3 Exod 20:12 Deut 5:16
19 therefore, Yahweh Sabaoth, the God of Israel, says this: Jonadab son of Rechab will never lack a male descendant to stand before me for ever." '
Jer 15:19 1Chr 2:55 Luke 21:36 Jer 33:17-18 Jude 1:24 Ps 5:5
