Baruch - Chapter 4
FREE Catholic Classes
4 Israel, blessed are we: what pleases God has been revealed to us!
12 Do not, any of you, exult over me, a widow, deserted by so many; I am bereaved because of the sins of my children, who turned away from the Law of God,
13 who did not want to know his precepts and would not follow the ways of his commandments or tread the paths of discipline as his justice directed.
20 I have taken off the clothes of peace and put on the sackcloth of entreaty; all my life I shall cry to the Eternal.
21 Take courage, my children, call on God: he will deliver you from tyranny, from the clutches of your enemies;
26 My favourite children have travelled by rough roads, carried off like a flock by a marauding enemy.
27 Take courage, my children, call on God: he who brought this on you will remember you.
28 As by your will you first strayed from God, so now turn back and search for him ten times harder;
29 for as he has been bringing down those disasters on you, so will he rescue you and give you eternal joy.
30 Take courage, Jerusalem: he who gave you your name will console you.
31 Disaster will come to all who have ill-treated you and gloated over your fall.
33 for just as she rejoiced at your fall and was happy to see you ruined, so will she grieve over her own desolation.
34 I shall deprive her of the joy of a populous city, and her insolence will turn to mourning;
37 Look, the children you watched go away are on their way home; reassembled from east and west, they are on their way home at the Holy One's command, rejoicing in God's glory.
