Jeremiah 35:1-19, NLT
The Faithful Recabites
1This is the message the Lord gave Jeremiah when Jehoiakim son of Josiah was king of Judah:
3So I went to see Jaazaniah son of Jeremiah and grandson of Habazziniah and all his brothers and sons—representing all the Recabite families.
5I set cups and jugs of wine before them and invited them to have a drink,
12Then the Lord gave this message to Jeremiah:
17“Therefore, this is what the Lord God of Heaven’s Armies, the God of Israel, says: ‘Because you refuse to listen or answer when I call, I will send upon Judah and Jerusalem all the disasters I have threatened.’”
18Then Jeremiah turned to the Recabites and said, “This is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, the God of Israel, says: ‘You have obeyed your ancestor Jehonadab in every respect, following all his instructions.’
