1 ὁ λόγος ὁ γενόμενος πρὸς Ιερεμιαν ἐπὶ πάντα τὸν λαὸν Ιουδα ἐν τῷ ἔτει τῷ τετάρτῳ τοῦ Ιωακιμ υἱοῦ Ιωσια βασιλέως Ιουδα 2 ὃν ἐλάλησεν πρὸς πάντα τὸν λαὸν Ιουδα καὶ πρὸς τοὺς κατοικοῦντας Ιερουσαλημ λέγων 3 ἐν τρισκαιδεκάτῳ ἔτει Ιωσια υἱοῦ Αμως βασιλέως Ιουδα καὶ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης εἴκοσι καὶ τρία ἔτη καὶ ἐλάλησα πρὸς ὑμᾶς ὀρθρίζων καὶ λέγων 4 καὶ ἀπέστελλον πρὸς ὑμᾶς τοὺς δούλους μου τοὺς προφήτας ὄρθρου ἀποστέλλων καὶ οὐκ εἰσηκούσατε καὶ οὐ προσέσχετε τοῖς ὠσὶν ὑμῶν 5 λέγων ἀποστράφητε ἕκαστος ἀπὸ τῆς ὁδοῦ αὐτοῦ τῆς πονηρᾶς καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν πονηρῶν ἐπιτηδευμάτων ὑμῶν καὶ κατοικήσετε ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ἧς ἔδωκα ὑμῖν καὶ τοῖς πατράσιν ὑμῶν ἀ{P'} αἰῶνος καὶ ἕως αἰῶνος 6 μὴ πορεύεσθε ὀπίσω θεῶν ἀλλοτρίων τοῦ δουλεύειν αὐτοῖς καὶ τοῦ προσκυνεῖν αὐτοῖς ὅπως μὴ παροργίζητέ με ἐν τοῖς ἔργοις τῶν χειρῶν ὑμῶν τοῦ κακῶσαι ὑμᾶς 7 καὶ οὐκ ἠκούσατέ μου 8 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει κύριος ἐπειδὴ οὐκ ἐπιστεύσατε τοῖς λόγοις μου 9 ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἀποστέλλω καὶ λήμψομαι τὴν πατριὰν ἀπὸ βορρᾶ καὶ ἄξω αὐτοὺς ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ταύτην καὶ ἐπὶ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας αὐτὴν καὶ ἐπὶ πάντα τὰ ἔθνη τὰ κύκλῳ αὐτῆς καὶ ἐξερημώσω αὐτοὺς καὶ δώσω αὐτοὺς εἰς ἀφανισμὸν καὶ εἰς συριγμὸν καὶ εἰς ὀνειδισμὸν αἰώνιον 10 καὶ ἀπολῶ ἀ{P'} αὐτῶν φωνὴν χαρᾶς καὶ φωνὴν εὐφροσύνης φωνὴν νυμφίου καὶ φωνὴν νύμφης ὀσμὴν μύρου καὶ φῶς λύχνου 11 καὶ ἔσται πᾶσα ἡ γῆ εἰς ἀφανισμόν καὶ δουλεύσουσιν ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν ἑβδομήκοντα ἔτη 1 Here is a message for the whole people of Juda, entrusted to Jeremias in the fourth year of Joakim’s reign (that was son to Josias) in Juda, the first of Nabuchodonosor’s in Babylon. 2 To all Juda, and to all the citizens of Jerusalem, the prophet Jeremias delivered it: 3 These twenty-three years, ever since the thirteenth year of Josias’ reign, that was son to Amon, the Lord’s word has been coming to me, and ever I was early at your doors repeating it, but you would not listen. 4 Early to your doors the Lord sent all those prophets that were servants of his, but hearing there was none, nor heeding. 5 False aims, he warned you, lead you by false paths astray; come back to me, and you shall dwell yet in this land, my gift to you and to your fathers from the beginning to the end of time. 6 Would you court slavery by worshipping alien gods, defy my vengeance with your ill-doings, till I plague you? 7 But you would not listen to me, the Lord says; ill was done yet, and my vengeance was yet defied. 8 And now, says the Lord of hosts, finding you disobedient still, 9 I mean to summon all the nations of the north country, with Nabuchodonosor, that servant of mine that is king in Babylon; I, the Lord, will bid him march on this land and its citizens, and all its neighbours. I mean to make an end of them, and leave it a thing to provoke wonder and scorn, desolate for all time. 10 Never again cries of joy and mirth, never again the voice of bridegroom and of bride, never a mill turning, never a lamp to shine. 11 For seventy years this whole land shall be a desert and a portent, and the king of Babylon shall have all these peoples for his slaves. 1 Verbum quod factum est ad Jeremiam, de omni populo Juda, in anno quarto Joakim filii Josiæ regis Juda (ipse est annus primus Nabuchodonosor regis Babylonis), 2 quod locutus est Jeremias propheta ad omnem populum Juda, et ad universos habitatores Jerusalem, dicens: 3 A tertiodecimo anno Josiæ filii Amon regis Juda, usque ad diem hanc, iste tertius et vigesimus annus, factum est verbum Domini ad me, et locutus sum ad vos, de nocte consurgens et loquens, et non audistis. 4 Et misit Dominus ad vos omnes servos suos prophetas, consurgens diluculo, mittensque: et non audistis, neque inclinastis aures vestras ut audiretis, 5 cum diceret: Revertimini unusquisque a via sua mala, et a pessimis cogitationibus vestris, et habitabitis in terra quam dedit Dominus vobis et patribus vestris, a sæculo et usque in sæculum: 6 et nolite ire post deos alienos, ut serviatis eis, adoretisque eos: neque me ad iracundiam provocetis in operibus manuum vestrarum, et non affligam vos. 7 Et non audistis me, dicit Dominus, ut me ad iracundiam provocaretis in operibus manuum vestrarum, in malum vestrum. 8 Propterea hæc dicit Dominus exercituum: Pro eo quod non audistis verba mea, 9 ecce ego mittam et assumam universas cognationes aquilonis, ait Dominus, et Nabuchodonosor regem Babylonis servum meum, et adducam eos super terram istam, et super habitatores ejus, et super omnes nationes quæ in circuitu illius sunt: et interficiam eos, et ponam eos in stuporem et in sibilum, et in solitudines sempiternas. 10 Perdamque ex eis vocem gaudii et vocem lætitiæ, vocem sponsi et vocem sponsæ, vocem molæ et lumen lucernæ. 11 Et erit universa terra hæc in solitudinem, et in stuporem: et servient omnes gentes istæ regi Babylonis septuaginta annis.
12 καὶ ἐν τῷ πληρωθῆναι τὰ ἑβδομήκοντα ἔτη ἐκδικήσω τὸ ἔθνος ἐκεῖνο φησὶν κύριος καὶ θήσομαι αὐτοὺς εἰς ἀφανισμὸν αἰώνιον 13 καὶ ἐπάξω ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ἐκείνην πάντας τοὺς λόγους μου οὓς ἐλάλησα κα{T'} αὐτῆς πάντα τὰ γεγραμμένα ἐν τῷ βιβλίῳ τούτῳ ὅσα ἐπροφήτευσεν Ιερεμιας ἐπὶ πάντα τὰ ἔθνη 14 12 Then, when seventy years have passed, I will call the king of Babylon to account, the Lord says, for all the wrongs he has done, with his people and with that Chaldaean country of his; that country in its turn I will leave desolate for ever. 13 The sentence I have pronounced against it shall be executed in full, all the doom Jeremias has foretold in this book of prophecy against all the nations of the world. 14 Great nations, proud kings, have held Israel enslaved; now for their own lives, their own deeds, they too must make amends.[1] 12 Cumque impleti fuerint septuaginta anni, visitabo super regem Babylonis et super gentem illam, dicit Dominus, iniquitatem eorum, et super terram Chaldæorum, et ponam illam in solitudines sempiternas. 13 Et adducam super terram illam omnia verba mea, quæ locutus sum contra eam, omne quod scriptum est in libro isto, quæcumque prophetavit Jeremias adversum omnes gentes: 14 quia servierunt eis, cum essent gentes multæ, et reges magni: et reddam eis secundum opera eorum, et secundum facta manuum suarum.
15 οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ λαβὲ τὸ ποτήριον τοῦ οἴνου τοῦ ἀκράτου τούτου ἐκ χειρός μου καὶ ποτιεῖς πάντα τὰ ἔθνη πρὸς ἃ ἐγὼ ἀποστέλλω σε πρὸς αὐτούς 16 καὶ πίονται καὶ ἐξεμοῦνται καὶ μανήσονται ἀπὸ προσώπου τῆς μαχαίρας ἧς ἐγὼ ἀποστέλλω ἀνὰ μέσον αὐτῶν 17 καὶ ἔλαβον τὸ ποτήριον ἐκ χειρὸς κυρίου καὶ ἐπότισα τὰ ἔθνη πρὸς ἃ ἀπέστειλέν με κύριος ἐ{P'} αὐτά 18 τὴν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ τὰς πόλεις Ιουδα καὶ βασιλεῖς Ιουδα καὶ ἄρχοντας αὐτοῦ τοῦ θεῖναι αὐτὰς εἰς ἐρήμωσιν καὶ εἰς ἄβατον καὶ εἰς συριγμὸν 19 καὶ τὸν Φαραω βασιλέα Αἰγύπτου καὶ τοὺς παῖδας αὐτοῦ καὶ τοὺς μεγιστᾶνας αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντα τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ 20 καὶ πάντας τοὺς συμμίκτους αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντας τοὺς βασιλεῖς ἀλλοφύλων τὴν Ἀσκαλῶνα καὶ τὴν Γάζαν καὶ τὴν Ακκαρων καὶ τὸ ἐπίλοιπον Ἀζώτου 21 καὶ τὴν Ιδουμαίαν καὶ τὴν Μωαβῖτιν καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς Αμμων 22 καὶ πάντας βασιλεῖς Τύρου καὶ βασιλεῖς Σιδῶνος καὶ βασιλεῖς τοὺς ἐν τῷ πέραν τῆς θαλάσσης 23 καὶ τὴν Δαιδαν καὶ τὴν Θαιμαν καὶ τὴν Ρως καὶ πᾶν περικεκαρμένον κατὰ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ 24 καὶ πάντας τοὺς συμμίκτους τοὺς καταλύοντας ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ 25 καὶ πάντας βασιλεῖς Αιλαμ καὶ πάντας βασιλεῖς Περσῶν 26 καὶ πάντας βασιλεῖς ἀπὸ ἀπηλιώτου τοὺς πόρρω καὶ τοὺς ἐγγύς ἕκαστον πρὸς τὸν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ πάσας τὰς βασιλείας τὰς ἐπὶ προσώπου τῆς γῆς 15 The Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, bade me take the cup of vengeance that was in his hand, and give drink out of it to all the nations to which my errand lay; 16 drink it they should, and reel to and fro, bemused by the threat of his sword let loose among them. 17 So I took the cup from the Lord’s hand; nor was there any of the nations the Lord had sent me to threaten but must drink of it. 18 Jerusalem must drink, and the townships of Juda, kings and nobles with the rest; the land was doomed to become a desert, a thing of wonder and scorn, a name to be used in cursing, as it is at this day. 19 Pharao king of Egypt and all his court and his nobles must drink, 20 and all the mingled people of his realm. No king in the land of Hus but must drink of it, nor among the Philistine cities, Ascalon, Gaza, Accaron and Azotus, 21 nor in Edom, Moab and Ammon, 22 no king in Tyre, and the Sidonian country, and the islands that lie beyond the sea. 23 Dedan must drink, and Thema, and Buz, and all the folk with shaven heads, 24 all the kings of Arabia, and the western desert kings.[2] 25 Nor any king in Zambri, Elam, and Media, 26 nor any king in the north country, far or near, but must pledge his neighbour; all the kings of the earth must have their share, and Sesach[3] not till the last. 15 Quia sic dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël: Sume calicem vini furoris hujus de manu mea, et propinabis de illo cunctis gentibus ad quas ego mittam te. 16 Et bibent, et turbabuntur et insanient a facie gladii quem ego mittam inter eos. 17 Et accepi calicem de manu Domini, et propinavi cunctis gentibus ad quas misit me Dominus, 18 Jerusalem, et civitatibus Juda, et regibus ejus, et principibus ejus, ut darem eos in solitudinem, et in stuporem, et in sibilum, et in maledictionem, sicut est dies ista: 19 Pharaoni regi Ægypti, et servis ejus, et principibus ejus, et omni populo ejus: 20 et universis generaliter: cunctis regibus terræ Ausitidis, et cunctis regibus terræ Philisthiim, et Ascaloni, et Gazæ, et Accaron, et reliquiis Azoti: 21 et Idumææ, et Moab, et filiis Ammon: 22 et cunctis regibus Tyri, et universis regibus Sidonis, et regibus terræ insularum qui sunt trans mare: 23 et Dedan, et Thema, et Buz, et universis qui attonsi sunt in comam: 24 et cunctis regibus Arabiæ, et cunctis regibus occidentis, qui habitant in deserto: 25 et cunctis regibus Zambri, et cunctis regibus Elam, et cunctis regibus Medorum: 26 cunctis quoque regibus aquilonis, de prope et de longe, unicuique contra fratrem suum: et omnibus regnis terræ quæ super faciem ejus sunt: et rex Sesach bibet post eos.
27 καὶ ἐρεῖς αὐτοῖς οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος παντοκράτωρ πίετε καὶ μεθύσθητε καὶ ἐξεμέσατε καὶ πεσεῖσθε καὶ οὐ μὴ ἀναστῆτε ἀπὸ προσώπου τῆς μαχαίρας ἧς ἐγὼ ἀποστέλλω ἀνὰ μέσον ὑμῶν 28 καὶ ἔσται ὅταν μὴ βούλωνται δέξασθαι τὸ ποτήριον ἐκ τῆς χειρός σου ὥστε πιεῖν καὶ ἐρεῖς οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος πιόντες πίεσθε 29 ὅτι ἐν πόλει ἐν ᾗ ὠνομάσθη τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐ{P'} αὐτήν ἐγὼ ἄρχομαι κακῶσαι καὶ ὑμεῖς καθάρσει οὐ μὴ καθαρισθῆτε ὅτι μάχαιραν ἐγὼ καλῶ ἐπὶ τοὺς καθημένους ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς 27 This message I was to give them from the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Drink, besot yourselves, and then fall to vomiting; and topple over at last, never to rise again, so well shall my sword do its work among you! 28 If they made to refuse the cup I offered them, this more I should add: Nay, but drink you must, says the Lord of hosts; 29 here am I beginning my work of vengeance with that city which is the shrine of my name, and shall you be acquitted, you others, and go scot-free? That shall never be, says the Lord of hosts; to the sword if I appeal, it is for a whole world’s punishment. 27 Et dices ad eos: Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël: Bibite, et inebriamini, et vomite: et cadite, neque surgatis a facie gladii quem ego mittam inter vos. 28 Cumque noluerint accipere calicem de manu tua ut bibant, dices ad eos: Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum: Bibentes bibetis: 29 quia ecce in civitate in qua invocatum est nomen meum ego incipiam affligere, et vos quasi innocentes et immunes eritis? non eritis immunes: gladium enim ego voco super omnes habitatores terræ, dicit Dominus exercituum.
30 καὶ σὺ προφητεύσεις ἐ{P'} αὐτοὺς τοὺς λόγους τούτους καὶ ἐρεῖς κύριος ἀ{F'} ὑψηλοῦ χρηματιεῖ ἀπὸ τοῦ ἁγίου αὐτοῦ δώσει φωνὴν αὐτοῦ λόγον χρηματιεῖ ἐπὶ τοῦ τόπου αὐτοῦ καὶ αιδαδ ὥσπερ τρυγῶντες ἀποκριθήσονται καὶ ἐπὶ τοὺς καθημένους ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν 31 ἥκει ὄλεθρος ἐπὶ μέρος τῆς γῆς ὅτι κρίσις τῷ κυρίῳ ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν κρίνεται αὐτὸς πρὸς πᾶσαν σάρκα οἱ δὲ ἀσεβεῖς ἐδόθησαν εἰς μάχαιραν λέγει κύριος 32 οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ἰδοὺ κακὰ ἔρχεται ἀπὸ ἔθνους ἐπὶ ἔθνος καὶ λαῖλαψ μεγάλη ἐκπορεύεται ἀ{P'} ἐσχάτου τῆς γῆς 33 καὶ ἔσονται τραυματίαι ὑπὸ κυρίου ἐν ἡμέρᾳ κυρίου ἐκ μέρους τῆς γῆς καὶ ἕως εἰς μέρος τῆς γῆς οὐ μὴ κατορυγῶσιν εἰς κόπρια ἐπὶ προσώπου τῆς γῆς ἔσονται 34 ἀλαλάξατε ποιμένες καὶ κεκράξατε καὶ κόπτεσθε οἱ κριοὶ τῶν προβάτων ὅτι ἐπληρώθησαν αἱ ἡμέραι ὑμῶν εἰς σφαγήν καὶ πεσεῖσθε ὥσπερ οἱ κριοὶ οἱ ἐκλεκτοί 35 καὶ ἀπολεῖται φυγὴ ἀπὸ τῶν ποιμένων καὶ σωτηρία ἀπὸ τῶν κριῶν τῶν προβάτων 36 φωνὴ κραυγῆς τῶν ποιμένων καὶ ἀλαλαγμὸς τῶν προβάτων καὶ τῶν κριῶν ὅτι ὠλέθρευσεν κύριος τὰ βοσκήματα αὐτῶν 37 καὶ παύσεται τὰ κατάλοιπα τῆς εἰρήνης ἀπὸ προσώπου ὀργῆς θυμοῦ μου 38 ἐγκατέλιπεν ὥσπερ λέων κατάλυμα αὐτοῦ ὅτι ἐγενήθη ἡ γῆ αὐτῶν εἰς ἄβατον ἀπὸ προσώπου τῆς μαχαίρας τῆς μεγάλης 30 With such words as these thou shalt prophesy to them: From on high, from his holy dwelling-place, the Lord makes his voice heard, terrible as lion roaring; as roar of lion against sheep-fold, and that fold his own! Loud echoes his vintage-cry as he treads down all the dwellers on earth; 31 to the ends of the world it must echo; a whole world he calls to account, impleads the whole race of men; The sword’s point for my adversaries, the Lord says. 32 From nation to nation, says the Lord of hosts, calamity will spread, like a great whirlwind sprung up from the corners of the earth, 33 and from end to end of it the bodies of the Lord’s foes, unwept, ungathered, unburied, shall lie like dung on the ground. 34 Cry out, make loud lament, shepherds of the nations, and you, the lordliest among their flocks, go strewn with ashes; your day is done, slain you must lie there, unvalued as some delicate vase broken to pieces. 35 For shepherds, and the pride of the flock, no refuge now; 36 hark how they lament, shepherds and pride of the flock, for pasture-grounds the Lord has laid waste! 37 Silent they lie now, once happy fields, under ban of the Lord’s vengeance. 38 Lion springs not from his lair more suddenly; all their land lies waste, so pitiless the invader’s onset,[4] so pitiless the Lord’s anger. 30 Et tu prophetabis ad eos omnia verba hæc, et dices ad illos:

Dominus de excelso rugiet,
et de habitaculo sancto suo dabit vocem suam:
rugiens rugiet super decorem suum:
celeuma quasi calcantium concinetur
adversus omnes habitatores terræ.
Pervenit sonitus usque ad extrema terræ,
quia judicium Domino cum gentibus:
judicatur ipse cum omni carne.
Impios tradidi gladio, dicit Dominus.
Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum:
Ecce afflictio egredietur de gente in gentem,
et turbo magnus egredietur a summitatibus terræ.
Et erunt interfecti Domini in die illa,
a summo terræ usque ad summum ejus:
non plangentur, et non colligentur, neque sepelientur:
in sterquilinium super faciem terræ jacebunt.
Ululate, pastores, et clamate,
et aspergite vos cinere, optimates gregis:
quia completi sunt dies vestri ut interficiamini,
et dissipationes vestræ:
et cadetis quasi vasa pretiosa.
Et peribit fuga a pastoribus,
et salvatio ab optimatibus gregis.
Vox clamoris pastorum, et ululatus optimatum gregis,
quia vastavit Dominus pascua eorum:
et conticuerunt arva pacis a facie iræ furoris Domini.
Dereliquit quasi leo umbraculum suum,
quia facta est terra eorum in desolationem
a facie iræ columbæ,
et a facie iræ furoris Domini.
