1 καὶ ἤκουσεν Πασχωρ υἱὸς Εμμηρ ὁ ἱερεύς καὶ οὗτος ἦν καθεσταμένος ἡγούμενος οἴκου κυρίου τοῦ Ιερεμιου προφητεύοντος τοὺς λόγους τούτους 2 καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτὸν καὶ ἐνέβαλεν αὐτὸν εἰς τὸν καταρράκτην ὃς ἦν ἐν πύλῃ οἴκου ἀποτεταγμένου τοῦ ὑπερῴου ὃς ἦν ἐν οἴκῳ κυρίου 3 καὶ ἐξήγαγεν Πασχωρ τὸν Ιερεμιαν ἐκ τοῦ καταρράκτου καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Ιερεμιας οὐχὶ Πασχωρ ἐκάλεσεν κύριος τὸ ὄνομά σου ἀλ{L'} ἢ μέτοικον 4 διότι τάδε λέγει κύριος ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ δίδωμί σε εἰς μετοικίαν σὺν πᾶσι τοῖς φίλοις σου καὶ πεσοῦνται ἐν μαχαίρᾳ ἐχθρῶν αὐτῶν καὶ οἱ ὀφθαλμοί σου ὄψονται καὶ σὲ καὶ πάντα Ιουδαν δώσω εἰς χεῖρας βασιλέως Βαβυλῶνος καὶ μετοικιοῦσιν αὐτοὺς καὶ κατακόψουσιν αὐτοὺς ἐν μαχαίραις 5 καὶ δώσω τὴν πᾶσαν ἰσχὺν τῆς πόλεως ταύτης καὶ πάντας τοὺς πόνους αὐτῆς καὶ πάντας τοὺς θησαυροὺς τοῦ βασιλέως Ιουδα εἰς χεῖρας ἐχθρῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἄξουσιν αὐτοὺς εἰς Βαβυλῶνα 6 καὶ σὺ καὶ πάντες οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ σου πορεύσεσθε ἐν αἰχμαλωσίᾳ καὶ ἐν Βαβυλῶνι ἀποθανῇ καὶ ἐκεῖ ταφήσῃ σὺ καὶ πάντες οἱ φίλοι σου οἷς ἐπροφήτευσας αὐτοῖς ψευδῆ 1 When Jeremias uttered this prophecy, one of those who heard him was Phassur, son of Emmer, a priest who was entrusted with the care of the temple. 2 This Phassur gave Jeremias a beating, and put him in the stocks at the upper gate of Benjamin, in the temple precincts, 3 but next day released him. A new name the Lord has for thee, Jeremias told him, instead of Phassur; he means to call thee Danger-Everywhere. 4 Danger enough thou shalt have, the Lord says, thou and those friends of thine; with thy own eyes thou shalt see the enemy put them to the sword, when I make the king of Babylon master of Juda; to Babylon he will take them, and put them to the sword there. 5 All the wealth of this city, all the fruits of its toil, all that is of price, all the treasury of Juda’s kings, those enemies shall have in their power, to plunder and carry off and take back to Babylon with them. 6 And thou, Phassur, with all thy household, shalt go into exile; to Babylon thou shalt go, in Babylon thou shalt die, and there find burial with all such friends of thine as listened to thy lying prophecy. 1 Et audivit Phassur filius Emmer, sacerdos, qui constitutus erat princeps in domo Domini, Jeremiam prophetantem sermones istos. 2 Et percussit Phassur Jeremiam prophetam, et misit eum in nervum quod erat in porta Benjamin superiori, in domo Domini. 3 Cumque illuxisset in crastinum, eduxit Phassur Jeremiam de nervo, et dixit ad eum Jeremias: Non Phassur vocavit Dominus nomen tuum, sed Pavorem undique. 4 Quia hæc dicit Dominus:

Ecce ego dabo te in pavorem,
te et omnes amicos tuos:
et corruent gladio inimicorum suorum,
et oculi tui videbunt:
et omnem Judam dabo in manum regis Babylonis,
et traducet eos in Babylonem,
et percutiet eos gladio.
5
Et dabo universam substantiam civitatis hujus,
et omnem laborem ejus, omneque pretium,
et cunctos thesauros regum Juda
dabo in manu inimicorum eorum:
et diripient eos, et tollent,
et ducent in Babylonem.
6
Tu autem, Phassur, et omnes habitatores domus tuæ,
ibitis in captivitatem:
et in Babylonem venies,
et ibi morieris, ibique sepelieris
tu, et omnes amici tui,
quibus prophetasti mendacium.
7 ἠπάτησάς με κύριε καὶ ἠπατήθην ἐκράτησας καὶ ἠδυνάσθης ἐγενόμην εἰς γέλωτα πᾶσαν ἡμέραν διετέλεσα μυκτηριζόμενος 8 ὅτι πικρῷ λόγῳ μου γελάσομαι ἀθεσίαν καὶ ταλαιπωρίαν ἐπικαλέσομαι ὅτι ἐγενήθη λόγος κυρίου εἰς ὀνειδισμὸν ἐμοὶ καὶ εἰς χλευασμὸν πᾶσαν ἡμέραν μου 9 καὶ εἶπα οὐ μὴ ὀνομάσω τὸ ὄνομα κυρίου καὶ οὐ μὴ λαλήσω ἔτι ἐπὶ τῷ ὀνόματι αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς πῦρ καιόμενον φλέγον ἐν τοῖς ὀστέοις μου καὶ παρεῖμαι πάντοθεν καὶ οὐ δύναμαι φέρειν 10 ὅτι ἤκουσα ψόγον πολλῶν συναθροιζομένων κυκλόθεν ἐπισύστητε καὶ ἐπισυστῶμεν αὐτῷ πάντες ἄνδρες φίλοι αὐτοῦ τηρήσατε τὴν ἐπίνοιαν αὐτοῦ εἰ ἀπατηθήσεται καὶ δυνησόμεθα αὐτῷ καὶ λημψόμεθα τὴν ἐκδίκησιν ἡμῶν ἐξ αὐτοῦ 11 καὶ κύριος με{T'} ἐμοῦ καθὼς μαχητὴς ἰσχύων διὰ τοῦτο ἐδίωξαν καὶ νοῆσαι οὐκ ἠδύναντο ᾐσχύνθησαν σφόδρα ὅτι οὐκ ἐνόησαν ἀτιμίας αὐτῶν αἳ δ{I'} αἰῶνος οὐκ ἐπιλησθήσονται 12 κύριε δοκιμάζων δίκαια συνίων νεφροὺς καὶ καρδίας ἴδοιμι τὴν παρὰ σοῦ ἐκδίκησιν ἐν αὐτοῖς ὅτι πρὸς σὲ ἀπεκάλυψα τὰ ἀπολογήματά μου 13 ᾄσατε τῷ κυρίῳ αἰνέσατε αὐτῷ ὅτι ἐξείλατο ψυχὴν πένητος ἐκ χειρὸς πονηρευομένων 7 Lord, thou hast sent me on a fool’s errand; if I played a fool’s part, a strength greater than mine overmastered me; morn to night, what a laughing-stock am I, every man’s nay-word! 8 Long have I prophesied, and still I clamoured against men’s wickedness, and still cried ruin; day in, day out, nothing it earns me, this divine spokesmanship, but reproach and mockery. 9 Did I essay to put the Lord out of my thoughts, and speak no more in his name, all at once it seemed as though a raging fire were locked in my bosom, pierced my whole frame, till I was worn out with it, and could bear no more. 10 For me, danger everywhere; so many crying, Denounce him, and that contemptuous cry echoed by all the companions I trusted, ever at my side: Denounce him we will; he may be fooled yet! Then we can overmaster him, and take our vengeance! 11 But the Lord stands at my side, a strong champion; fall and fail they must, my persecutors, and be disappointed of their hopes; fools, that cannot foresee shame eternal, shame indelible, awaiting them! 12 But thou, Lord of hosts, true judge that canst read the inmost thoughts of man’s heart, let me live to see thee punish them; to thee I have made my plea known.[1] 13 Sing to the Lord yet, praise the Lord yet; he does not leave a defenceless life at the mercy of the wicked. 7

Seduxisti me, Domine, et seductus sum:
fortior me fuisti, et invaluisti:
factus sum in derisum tota die;
omnes subsannant me.
8
Quia jam olim loquor,
vociferans iniquitatem, et vastitatem clamito:
et factus est mihi sermo Domini in opprobrium,
et in derisum tota die.
9
Et dixi: Non recordabor ejus,
neque loquar ultra in nomine illius:
et factus est in corde meo quasi ignis exæstuans,
claususque in ossibus meis,
et defeci, ferre non sustinens.
10
Audivi enim contumelias multorum,
et terrorem in circuitu:
Persequimini, et persequamur eum,
ab omnibus viris qui erant pacifici mei,
et custodientes latus meum:
si quomodo decipiatur, et prævaleamus adversus eum,
et consequamur ultionem ex eo.
11
Dominus autem mecum est, quasi bellator fortis:
idcirco qui persequuntur me cadent,
et infirmi erunt:
confundentur vehementer,
quia non intellexerunt opprobrium sempiternum,
quod numquam delebitur.
12
Et tu, Domine exercituum, probator justi,
qui vides renes et cor,
videam, quæso, ultionem tuam ex eis:
tibi enim revelavi causam meam.
13
Cantate Domino,
laudate Dominum,
quia liberavit animam pauperis de manu malorum.
14 ἐπικατάρατος ἡ ἡμέρα ἐν ᾗ ἐτέχθην ἐν αὐτῇ ἡ ἡμέρα ἐν ᾗ ἔτεκέν με ἡ μήτηρ μου μὴ ἔστω ἐπευκτή 15 ἐπικατάρατος ὁ ἄνθρωπος ὁ εὐαγγελισάμενος τῷ πατρί μου λέγων ἐτέχθη σοι ἄρσεν εὐφραινόμενος 16 ἔστω ὁ ἄνθρωπος ἐκεῖνος ὡς αἱ πόλεις ἃς κατέστρεψεν κύριος ἐν θυμῷ καὶ οὐ μετεμελήθη ἀκουσάτω κραυγῆς τὸ πρωὶ καὶ ἀλαλαγμοῦ μεσημβρίας 17 ὅτι οὐκ ἀπέκτεινέν με ἐν μήτρᾳ μητρὸς καὶ ἐγένετό μοι ἡ μήτηρ μου τάφος μου καὶ ἡ μήτρα συλλήμψεως αἰωνίας 18 ἵνα τί τοῦτο ἐξῆλθον ἐκ μήτρας τοῦ βλέπειν κόπους καὶ πόνους καὶ διετέλεσαν ἐν αἰσχύνῃ αἱ ἡμέραι μου 14 Cursed be the day of my birth! A time for cursing it was, not for blessing, when my mother brought me into the world. 15 Cursed be the man who told my father a son had been born to him, and brought gladness, ay, gladness, into his heart! 16 For that good news, be he rewarded with the noise of battle-cry at morn, dirge at noon, like some city the Lord overthrows in anger unrelenting! 17 Why did he not slay me yet unborn, the womb for my tomb, and frustrate my mother’s hope eternally? 18 Why must I come out into the light of day, where only labour and sorrow greet me, and in disappointed striving all my life is spent? 14
Maledicta dies in qua natus sum!
dies in qua peperit me mater mea
non sit benedicta!
15
Maledictus vir qui annuntiavit patri meo,
dicens: Natus est tibi puer masculus,
et quasi gaudio lætificavit eum!
16
Sit homo ille ut sunt civitates quæ subvertit Dominus,
et non pœnituit eum:
audiat clamorem mane,
et ululatum in tempore meridiano,
17
qui non me interfecit a vulva,
ut fieret mihi mater mea sepulchrum,
et vulva ejus conceptus æternus!
18
Quare de vulva egressus sum,
ut viderem laborem et dolorem,
et consumerentur in confusione dies mei?
