4 And in the hearing of the nobles, and of the kings sonnes, and in the hearing of the Elders, and of all the people from the lowest vnto the highest, euen of all them that dwelt at Babylon, by the riuer Sud.
8 At the same time, when he receiued the vessels of the house of the Lord that were caried out of the Temple, to returne them into the land of Iuda the tenth day of the moneth Siuan, [namely] siluer vessels, which Sedecias the sonne of Iosias king of Iuda had made,
9 After that Nabuchodonosor king of Babylon had caried away Iechonias, and the Princes, and the captiues, and the mightie men, and the people of the land from Ierusalem, and brought them vnto Babylon:
12 And the Lord wil giue vs strength, and lighten our eyes, and we shall liue vnder the shadow of Nabuchodonosor king of Babylon, and vnder the shadow of Balthasar his sonne, and wee shall serue them many dayes, and finde fauour in their sight.
19 Since the day that the Lorde brought our forefathers out of the land of Egypt, vnto this present day, wee haue beene disobedient vnto the Lord our God, and we haue beene negligent in not hearing his voice.
20 Wherefore the euils cleaued vnto vs, and the curse which the Lord appointed by Moses his seruant, at the time that he brought our fathers out of the land of Egypt, to giue vs a land that floweth with milke and honie, like as it is to see this day.

I am so grateful to be able to read the Apocrypha; while I have read the Holy Bible four times in my life, and the Book of Moses nine straight years, I have fallen in love with The Spirit of The Lord from Chapter 1 of Baruch. Really powerful and I could feel it is inspired. Thank you for this service. By the way; "Sisters Go Ye Trailer 2" on Youtube is my latest Christian Indie Film.
Nimal's Baruch Chapter 1 comment about verse 14 on 8/17/2012, 11:26am...
This verse in Baruch 1:14 confirms James 5:16 - Confession of our sins to one another and to God. When we sin we sin against two people. God and our brother (which is in the body of Christ) If we harm our brother and sin against him, confessing only to God without reconciling with our brother is of no use. That is why Jesus said, when you bring an offering to be offered in the Temple and you remember you have hurt your brother, keep your offering aside, first go to your brother, reconcile with him and then offer your gift. The prodigal son, before coming to the father, made up his mind to tell the father " my father I sin against God and you" He sinned not only against God but his father too. He asked for forgiveness from both God and his father. So confessing our sins to one another, as James advised, is important because when we sin we sin against our brother which is the body of Christ.
