1 ὁ λόγος ὁ γενόμενος παρὰ κυρίου πρὸς Ιερεμιαν ἐν τῷ ἐνιαυτῷ τῷ δεκάτῳ τῷ βασιλεῖ Σεδεκια οὗτος ἐνιαυτὸς ὀκτωκαιδέκατος τῷ βασιλεῖ Ναβουχοδονοσορ βασιλεῖ Βαβυλῶνος 2 καὶ δύναμις βασιλέως Βαβυλῶνος ἐχαράκωσεν ἐπὶ Ιερουσαλημ καὶ Ιερεμιας ἐφυλάσσετο ἐν αὐλῇ τῆς φυλακῆς ἥ ἐστιν ἐν οἴκῳ τοῦ βασιλέως 3 ἐν ᾗ κατέκλεισεν αὐτὸν ὁ βασιλεὺς Σεδεκιας λέγων διὰ τί σὺ προφητεύεις λέγων οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ δίδωμι τὴν πόλιν ταύτην ἐν χερσὶν βασιλέως Βαβυλῶνος καὶ λήμψεται αὐτήν 4 καὶ Σεδεκιας οὐ μὴ σωθῇ ἐκ χειρὸς τῶν Χαλδαίων ὅτι παραδόσει παραδοθήσεται εἰς χεῖρας βασιλέως Βαβυλῶνος καὶ λαλήσει στόμα αὐτοῦ πρὸς στόμα αὐτοῦ καὶ οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ αὐτοῦ τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ ὄψονται 5 καὶ εἰσελεύσεται Σεδεκιας εἰς Βαβυλῶνα καὶ ἐκεῖ καθιεῖται 1 A message came from the Lord to Jeremias during the tenth year of Sedecias’ reign in Juda, the eighteenth of Nabuchodonosor’s at Babylon; 2 the Babylonian army was besieging Jerusalem at the time, and Jeremias was a prisoner there, confined in the guard-court that lay before the royal palace. 3 It was for his prophesying that king Sedecias had imprisoned him; what meant this threat from the Lord, of giving Jerusalem over to capture by the king of Babylon? 4 He had said, besides: King Sedecias of Juda shall not escape from the Chaldaeans; the king of Babylon shall have the mastery of him; they shall have speech together, meet face to face.[1] 5 To Babylon Sedecias shall go, and there remain till I have entered into a reckoning with him. All shall go amiss, if you join battle with the Chaldaeans. 1 Verbum quod factum est ad Jeremiam a Domino, in anno decimo Sedeciæ regis Juda, ipse est annus decimusoctavus Nabuchodonosor. 2 Tunc exercitus regis Babylonis obsidebat Jerusalem, et Jeremias propheta erat clausus in atrio carceris qui erat in domo regis Juda. 3 Clauserat enim eum Sedecias rex Juda, dicens: Quare vaticinaris, dicens: Hæc dicit Dominus: Ecce ego dabo civitatem istam in manus regis Babylonis, et capiet eam: 4 et Sedecias rex Juda non effugiet de manu Chaldæorum, sed tradetur in manus regis Babylonis: et loquetur os ejus cum ore illius, et oculi ejus oculos illius videbunt: 5 et in Babylonem ducet Sedeciam, et ibi erit donec visitem eum, ait Dominus: si autem dimicaveritis adversum Chaldæos, nihil prosperum habebitis?
6 καὶ λόγος κυρίου ἐγενήθη πρὸς Ιερεμιαν λέγων 7 ἰδοὺ Αναμεηλ υἱὸς Σαλωμ ἀδελφοῦ πατρός σου ἔρχεται πρὸς σὲ λέγων κτῆσαι σεαυτῷ τὸν ἀγρόν μου τὸν ἐν Αναθωθ ὅτι σοὶ κρίμα παραλαβεῖν εἰς κτῆσιν 8 καὶ ἦλθεν πρός με Αναμεηλ υἱὸς Σαλωμ ἀδελφοῦ πατρός μου εἰς τὴν αὐλὴν τῆς φυλακῆς καὶ εἶπέν μοι κτῆσαι τὸν ἀγρόν μου τὸν ἐν γῇ Βενιαμιν τὸν ἐν Αναθωθ ὅτι σοὶ κρίμα κτήσασθαι καὶ σὺ πρεσβύτερος καὶ ἔγνων ὅτι λόγος κυρίου ἐστίν 9 καὶ ἐκτησάμην τὸν ἀγρὸν Αναμεηλ υἱοῦ ἀδελφοῦ πατρός μου καὶ ἔστησα αὐτῷ ἑπτὰ σίκλους καὶ δέκα ἀργυρίου 10 καὶ ἔγραψα εἰς βιβλίον καὶ ἐσφραγισάμην καὶ διεμαρτυράμην μάρτυρας καὶ ἔστησα τὸ ἀργύριον ἐν ζυγῷ 11 καὶ ἔλαβον τὸ βιβλίον τῆς κτήσεως τὸ ἐσφραγισμένον καὶ τὸ ἀνεγνωσμένον 12 καὶ ἔδωκα αὐτὸ τῷ Βαρουχ υἱῷ Νηριου υἱοῦ Μαασαιου κα{T'} ὀφθαλμοὺς Αναμεηλ υἱοῦ ἀδελφοῦ πατρός μου καὶ κα{T'} ὀφθαλμοὺς τῶν ἑστηκότων καὶ γραφόντων ἐν τῷ βιβλίῳ τῆς κτήσεως καὶ κα{T'} ὀφθαλμοὺς τῶν Ιουδαίων τῶν ἐν τῇ αὐλῇ τῆς φυλακῆς 13 καὶ συνέταξα τῷ Βαρουχ κα{T'} ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτῶν λέγων 14 οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος παντοκράτωρ λαβὲ τὸ βιβλίον τῆς κτήσεως τοῦτο καὶ τὸ βιβλίον τὸ ἀνεγνωσμένον καὶ θήσεις αὐτὸ εἰς ἀγγεῖον ὀστράκινον ἵνα διαμείνῃ ἡμέρας πλείους 15 ὅτι οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ἔτι κτηθήσονται ἀγροὶ καὶ οἰκίαι καὶ ἀμπελῶνες ἐν τῇ γῇ ταύτῃ 6 And now Jeremias announced a new oracle the Lord had given him. 7 The Lord told me, he said, that my cousin Hanameel, son of Sellum, would come and ask me to buy in certain land of his at Anathoth, which was my duty as his next of kin. 8 And as the Lord foretold, so it fell out; Hanameel came to my prison doors, and said, Pray buy in that field of mine at Anathoth in Benjamin; thou art the rightful heir, and thy duty it is, as next of kin, to buy it from me. Then I knew that I had received a divine warning, 9 and buy it I did, this field at Anathoth, from Hanameel, that was son to my uncle Sellum. I paid him the price, that was but seventeen pieces of silver; 10 wrote and signed the deed, called in witnesses, and weighed out the money on the scales. 11 So here was the deed of possession sealed up, all its terms set down and attested, and characters written without; 12 all this I handed over to Baruch, son of Neri, son of Maasias, still in the presence of my cousin Hanameel, and the witnesses that had signed it, and the Jews who sat around me in the court where I was confined. 13 Before them all, I gave Baruch this charge: 14 A message for thee from the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Take these two pieces of writing, the sealed deed within and the covering of it that is open to view, and keep them in some jar of clay, where they can remain long without damage. 15 This is what he would tell thee, he, the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, that there shall yet be buying of house and field and vineyard, here in this land. 6 Et dixit Jeremias: Factum est verbum Domini ad me, dicens: 7 Ecce Hanameel filius Sellum, patruelis tuus, veniet ad te, dicens: Eme tibi agrum meum qui est in Anathoth, tibi enim competit ex propinquitate ut emas. 8 Et venit ad me Hanameel filius patrui mei, secundum verbum Domini, ad vestibulum carceris, et ait ad me: Posside agrum meum qui est in Anathoth, in terra Benjamin, quia tibi competit hæreditas, et tu propinquus es ut possideas. Intellexi autem quod verbum Domini esset: 9 et emi agrum ab Hanameel filio patrui mei, qui est in Anathoth, et appendi ei argentum: septem stateres, et decem argenteos. 10 Et scripsi in libro, et signavi, et adhibui testes, et appendi argentum in statera. 11 Et accepi librum possessionis signatum, et stipulationes, et rata, et signa forinsecus: 12 et dedi librum possessionis Baruch filio Neri filii Maasiæ, in oculis Hanameel patruelis mei, in oculis testium qui scripti erant in libro emptionis, et in oculis omnium Judæorum qui sedebant in atrio carceris. 13 Et præcepi Baruch coram eis, dicens: 14 Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël: Sume libros istos, librum emptionis hunc signatum, et librum hunc qui apertus est, et pone illos in vase fictili, ut permanere possint diebus multis: 15 hæc enim dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël: Adhuc possidebuntur domus, et agri, et vineæ in terra ista.
16 καὶ προσευξάμην πρὸς κύριον μετὰ τὸ δοῦναί με τὸ βιβλίον τῆς κτήσεως πρὸς Βαρουχ υἱὸν Νηριου λέγων 17 ὦ κύριε σὺ ἐποίησας τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ τὴν γῆν τῇ ἰσχύι σου τῇ μεγάλῃ καὶ τῷ βραχίονί σου τῷ ὑψηλῷ καὶ τῷ μετεώρῳ οὐ μὴ ἀποκρυβῇ ἀπὸ σοῦ οὐθέν 18 ποιῶν ἔλεος εἰς χιλιάδας καὶ ἀποδιδοὺς ἁμαρτίας πατέρων εἰς κόλπους τέκνων αὐτῶν με{T'} αὐτούς ὁ θεὸς ὁ μέγας καὶ ἰσχυρός 19 κύριος μεγάλης βουλῆς καὶ δυνατὸς τοῖς ἔργοις ὁ θεὸς ὁ μέγας ὁ παντοκράτωρ καὶ μεγαλώνυμος κύριος οἱ ὀφθαλμοί σου εἰς τὰς ὁδοὺς τῶν υἱῶν τῶν ἀνθρώπων δοῦναι ἑκάστῳ κατὰ τὴν ὁδὸν αὐτοῦ 20 ὃς ἐποίησας σημεῖα καὶ τέρατα ἐν γῇ Αἰγύπτῳ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης καὶ ἐν Ισραηλ καὶ ἐν τοῖς γηγενέσιν καὶ ἐποίησας σεαυτῷ ὄνομα ὡς ἡ ἡμέρα αὕτη 21 καὶ ἐξήγαγες τὸν λαόν σου Ισραηλ ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου ἐν σημείοις καὶ ἐν τέρασιν καὶ ἐν χειρὶ κραταιᾷ καὶ ἐν βραχίονι ὑψηλῷ καὶ ἐν ὁράμασιν μεγάλοις 22 καὶ ἔδωκας αὐτοῖς τὴν γῆν ταύτην ἣν ὤμοσας τοῖς πατράσιν αὐτῶν γῆν ῥέουσαν γάλα καὶ μέλι 23 καὶ εἰσήλθοσαν καὶ ἐλάβοσαν αὐτὴν καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσαν τῆς φωνῆς σου καὶ ἐν τοῖς προστάγμασίν σου οὐκ ἐπορεύθησαν ἅπαντα ἃ ἐνετείλω αὐτοῖς οὐκ ἐποίησαν καὶ ἐποίησας συμβῆναι αὐτοῖς πάντα τὰ κακὰ ταῦτα 24 ἰδοὺ ὄχλος ἥκει εἰς τὴν πόλιν ταύτην συλλαβεῖν αὐτήν καὶ ἡ πόλις ἐδόθη εἰς χεῖρας Χαλδαίων τῶν πολεμούντων αὐτὴν ἀπὸ προσώπου μαχαίρας καὶ τοῦ λιμοῦ ὡς ἐλάλησας οὕτως ἐγένετο 25 καὶ σὺ λέγεις πρός με κτῆσαι σεαυτῷ ἀγρὸν ἀργυρίου καὶ ἔγραψα βιβλίον καὶ ἐσφραγισάμην καὶ ἐπεμαρτυράμην μάρτυρας καὶ ἡ πόλις ἐδόθη εἰς χεῖρας Χαλδαίων 16 The deed once made over to Baruch, son of Neri, I prayed to the Lord thus: 17 Alas, alas, Lord God! Thou art the maker of heaven and earth, so great is thy power, so wide thy reach; no task, for thee, is too difficult. 18 A thousandfold thou shewest thy mercy; yet, when thou dost punish, into the son’s lap the father’s guilt overflows; how great, how strong that God, whose name is the Lord of hosts! 19 How sublime thy counsels, thy thoughts how high above us! And still thou keepest watch over all mankind, ready to award each life what its own devices have earned. 20 Such deeds thou didst as are signs and portents to this day in the land of Egypt, in Israel too and all the world over; didst win that renown which to this day is thine.[2] 21 Signs and portents there must be, and the exercise of thy constraining power, and a great dread, before thou couldst rescue thy people Israel from Egypt; 22 then thou wouldst bestow upon them this land, the home promised to their fathers, a land all milk and honey; 23 they invaded it, they took possession of it. But to thy voice they would not listen, thy law they would not follow; no duty thou hadst enjoined but lay neglected, and all the calamities we see about us are the issue. 24 Here are siege-works raised to reduce the city; sword and famine and pestilence are giving it over to the Chaldaeans for their prey; of all thou hast threatened thou seest here the fulfilment. 25 And now, Lord God, thou wouldst have me buy land, and call in witnesses of payment made; now, when this city lies at the mercy of the Chaldaeans! 16 Et oravi ad Dominum, postquam tradidi librum possessionis Baruch filio Neri, dicens: 17

Heu! heu! heu! Domine Deus,
ecce tu fecisti cælum et terram
in fortitudine tua magna, et in brachio tuo extento:
non erit tibi difficile omne verbum:
qui facis misericordiam in millibus,
et reddis iniquitatem patrum in sinum filiorum eorum post eos:
fortissime, magne, et potens,
Dominus exercituum nomen tibi.
Magnus consilio, et incomprehensibilis cogitatu:
cujus oculi aperti sunt super omnes vias filiorum Adam,
ut reddas unicuique secundum vias suas,
et secundum fructum adinventionum ejus.
Qui posuisti signa et portenta
in terra Ægypti usque ad diem hanc,
et in Israël, et in hominibus,
et fecisti tibi nomen sicut est dies hæc.
Et eduxisti populum tuum Israël de terra Ægypti,
in signis et in portentis,
et in manu robusta et in brachio extento,
et in terrore magno:
et dedisti eis terram hanc,
quam jurasti patribus eorum ut dares eis,
terram fluentem lacte et melle.
Et ingressi sunt, et possederunt eam,
et non obedierunt voci tuæ,
et in lege tua non ambulaverunt:
omnia quæ mandasti eis ut facerent non fecerunt,
et evenerunt eis omnia mala hæc.
Ecce munitiones exstructæ sunt adversum civitatem ut capiatur,
et urbs data est in manus Chaldæorum
qui præliantur adversus eam,
a facie gladii, et famis, et pestilentiæ:
et quæcumque locutus es, acciderunt,
ut tu ipse cernis.
Et tu dicis mihi, Domine Deus:
Eme agrum argento, et adhibe testes,
cum urbs data sit in manus Chaldæorum?
26 καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος κυρίου πρός με λέγων 27 ἐγὼ κύριος ὁ θεὸς πάσης σαρκός μὴ ἀ{P'} ἐμοῦ κρυβήσεταί τι 26 Hereupon the word of the Lord came to Jeremias: 27 Am I not the Lord, the God of all that lives? How should any task be too difficult for me? 26 Et factum est verbum Domini ad Jeremiam, dicens: 27

Ecce ego Dominus Deus universæ carnis:
numquid mihi difficile erit omne verbum?
28 διὰ τοῦτο οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ δοθεῖσα παραδοθήσεται ἡ πόλις αὕτη εἰς χεῖρας βασιλέως Βαβυλῶνος καὶ λήμψεται αὐτήν 29 καὶ ἥξουσιν οἱ Χαλδαῖοι πολεμοῦντες ἐπὶ τὴν πόλιν ταύτην καὶ καύσουσιν τὴν πόλιν ταύτην ἐν πυρὶ καὶ κατακαύσουσιν τὰς οἰκίας ἐν αἷς ἐθυμιῶσαν ἐπὶ τῶν δωμάτων αὐτῶν τῇ Βααλ καὶ ἔσπενδον σπονδὰς θεοῖς ἑτέροις πρὸς τὸ παραπικρᾶναί με 30 ὅτι ἦσαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ Ιουδα μόνοι ποιοῦντες τὸ πονηρὸν κα{T'} ὀφθαλμούς μου ἐκ νεότητος αὐτῶν 31 ὅτι ἐπὶ τὴν ὀργήν μου καὶ ἐπὶ τὸν θυμόν μου ἦν ἡ πόλις αὕτη ἀ{F'} ἧς ἡμέρας ᾠκοδόμησαν αὐτὴν καὶ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης ἀπαλλάξαι αὐτὴν ἀπὸ προσώπου μου 32 διὰ πάσας τὰς πονηρίας τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ καὶ Ιουδα ὧν ἐποίησαν πικρᾶναί με αὐτοὶ καὶ οἱ βασιλεῖς αὐτῶν καὶ οἱ ἄρχοντες αὐτῶν καὶ οἱ ἱερεῖς αὐτῶν καὶ οἱ προφῆται αὐτῶν ἄνδρες Ιουδα καὶ οἱ κατοικοῦντες Ιερουσαλημ 33 καὶ ἐπέστρεψαν πρός με νῶτον καὶ οὐ πρόσωπον καὶ ἐδίδαξα αὐτοὺς ὄρθρου καὶ ἐδίδαξα καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσαν ἐπιλαβεῖν παιδείαν 34 καὶ ἔθηκαν τὰ μιάσματα αὐτῶν ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ οὗ ἐπεκλήθη τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐ{P'} αὐτῷ ἐν ἀκαθαρσίαις αὐτῶν 35 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησαν τοὺς βωμοὺς τῇ Βααλ τοὺς ἐν φάραγγι υἱοῦ Εννομ τοῦ ἀναφέρειν τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτῶν καὶ τὰς θυγατέρας αὐτῶν τῷ Μολοχ βασιλεῖ ἃ οὐ συνέταξα αὐτοῖς καὶ οὐκ ἀνέβη ἐπὶ καρδίαν μου τοῦ ποιῆσαι τὸ βδέλυγμα τοῦτο πρὸς τὸ ἐφαμαρτεῖν τὸν Ιουδαν 28 This is the divine sentence;[3] I mean to hand over this city to capture by the king of Babylon and his Chaldaeans; they shall take it by storm, 29 and set it alight, and burn all its houses to the ground; it was there, on the roof-tops, they sacrificed to Baal, and made offerings to alien gods in despite of me. 30 From their youth up, Israel and Juda have defied my will unceasingly; even now, says the Lord, their ill-doings are a provocation to me. 31 Anger and scorn this city of theirs has earned from me, nothing else, from the day they built it to this day when I purpose that it shall offend my sight no more; 32 so long have Israel and Juda defied my vengeance with the wrong they did, king and prince, priest and prophet, country-folk and citizens of Jerusalem; 33 always the back turned, never a glance my way, always the deaf ear, the warning unheeded, when I sent early to their doors to bring them to a better mind! 34 Have they not profaned that house which is the sanctuary of my name, by setting up their idols in it? 35 Have they not made hill-shrines for Baal in the valley of Ben-Ennom, and there initiated son and daughter with Moloch-rites that were never of my bidding? No thought was it of mine that they should do this foul deed, which has brought guilt on Juda. 28
Propterea hæc dicit Dominus:
Ecce ego tradam civitatem istam in manus Chaldæorum,
et in manus regis Babylonis,
et capient eam.
Et venient Chaldæi præliantes adversum urbem hanc,
et succendent eam igni, et comburent eam,
et domos in quarum domatibus sacrificabant Baal,
et libabant diis alienis libamina ad irritandum me.
Erant enim filii Israël et filii Juda
jugiter facientes malum in oculis meis ab adolescentia sua:
filii Israël, qui usque nunc exacerbant me
in opere manuum suarum, dicit Dominus.
Quia in furore et in indignatione mea facta est mihi civitas hæc,
a die qua ædificaverunt eam
usque ad diem istam qua auferetur de conspectu meo,
propter malitiam filiorum Israël et filiorum Juda,
quam fecerunt ad iracundiam me provocantes,
ipsi et reges eorum,
principes eorum, et sacerdotes eorum, et prophetæ eorum,
viri Juda et habitatores Jerusalem.
Et verterunt ad me terga, et non facies,
cum docerem eos diluculo et erudirem,
et nollent audire, ut acciperent disciplinam.
Et posuerunt idola sua in domo in qua invocatum est nomen meum,
ut polluerent eam.
Et ædificaverunt excelsa Baal
quæ sunt in valle filii Ennom,
ut initiarent filios suos et filias suas Moloch,
quod non mandavi eis,
nec ascendit in cor meum ut facerent abominationem hanc:
et in peccatum deducerent Judam.
36 καὶ νῦν οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ ἐπὶ τὴν πόλιν ἣν σὺ λέγεις παραδοθήσεται εἰς χεῖρας βασιλέως Βαβυλῶνος ἐν μαχαίρᾳ καὶ ἐν λιμῷ καὶ ἐν ἀποστολῇ 37 ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ συνάγω αὐτοὺς ἐκ πάσης τῆς γῆς οὗ διέσπειρα αὐτοὺς ἐκεῖ ἐν ὀργῇ μου καὶ τῷ θυμῷ μου καὶ παροξυσμῷ μεγάλῳ καὶ ἐπιστρέψω αὐτοὺς εἰς τὸν τόπον τοῦτον καὶ καθιῶ αὐτοὺς πεποιθότας 38 καὶ ἔσονταί μοι εἰς λαόν καὶ ἐγὼ ἔσομαι αὐτοῖς εἰς θεόν 39 καὶ δώσω αὐτοῖς ὁδὸν ἑτέραν καὶ καρδίαν ἑτέραν φοβηθῆναί με πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας εἰς ἀγαθὸν αὐτοῖς καὶ τοῖς τέκνοις αὐτῶν με{T'} αὐτούς 40 καὶ διαθήσομαι αὐτοῖς διαθήκην αἰωνίαν ἣν οὐ μὴ ἀποστρέψω ὄπισθεν αὐτῶν καὶ τὸν φόβον μου δώσω εἰς τὴν καρδίαν αὐτῶν πρὸς τὸ μὴ ἀποστῆναι αὐτοὺς ἀ{P'} ἐμοῦ 41 καὶ ἐπισκέψομαι τοῦ ἀγαθῶσαι αὐτοὺς καὶ φυτεύσω αὐτοὺς ἐν τῇ γῇ ταύτῃ ἐν πίστει καὶ ἐν πάσῃ καρδίᾳ καὶ ἐν πάσῃ ψυχῇ 42 ὅτι οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος καθὰ ἐπήγαγον ἐπὶ τὸν λαὸν τοῦτον πάντα τὰ κακὰ τὰ μεγάλα ταῦτα οὕτως ἐγὼ ἐπάξω ἐ{P'} αὐτοὺς πάντα τὰ ἀγαθά ἃ ἐλάλησα ἐ{P'} αὐτούς 43 καὶ κτηθήσονται ἔτι ἀγροὶ ἐν τῇ γῇ ᾗ σὺ λέγεις ἄβατός ἐστιν ἀπὸ ἀνθρώπων καὶ κτήνους καὶ παρεδόθησαν εἰς χεῖρας Χαλδαίων 44 καὶ κτήσονται ἀγροὺς ἐν ἀργυρίῳ καὶ γράψεις βιβλίον καὶ σφραγιῇ καὶ διαμαρτυρῇ μάρτυρας ἐν γῇ Βενιαμιν καὶ κύκλῳ Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἐν πόλεσιν Ιουδα καὶ ἐν πόλεσιν τοῦ ὄρους καὶ ἐν πόλεσιν τῆς Σεφηλα καὶ ἐν πόλεσιν τῆς Ναγεβ ὅτι ἀποστρέψω τὰς ἀποικίας αὐτῶν 36 What, then, of this city, doomed in your eyes to fall into the power of Babylon’s king, through sword and famine and pestilence? This is the message the Lord God of Israel sends to it: 37 I mean to gather its people again, scattered over so many lands by the vengeance my fierce anger brought; restore them to this place, and bid them dwell there contentedly. 38 They shall be my people, I their God; 39 one will they shall have, and journey by one way, living evermore in the fear of me, winning for themselves and for their sons a blessing. 40 An eternal covenant I will make with them, nor ever cease to speed them; inspire their hearts with the fear of me, that never swerves aside. 41 My welcome task it shall be to prosper them, and root their stock firmly in this land of theirs; this shall be all my love and liking. 42 Threat of mine and promise of mine, the Lord says, shall alike be fulfilled. 43 This country of yours a desert, man nor beast to dwell in it, given up to the power of Babylon? So your fears tell you; but there shall be buying of lands in it yet, 44 the price paid, the deed executed, the bond sealed, witnesses called in, all over Benjamin and round about Jerusalem, all through the cities of Juda, by hill and plain and the uplands of the south; I mean to bring the exiles home again, says the Lord. 36
Et nunc propter ista,
hæc dicit Dominus Deus Israël ad civitatem hanc,
de qua vos dicitis quod tradetur in manus regis Babylonis,
in gladio, et in fame, et in peste:
Ecce ego congregabo eos de universis terris ad quas ejeci eos
in furore meo, et in ira mea, et in indignatione grandi:
et reducam eos ad locum istum,
et habitare eos faciam confidenter:
et erunt mihi in populum,
et ego ero eis in Deum.
Et dabo eis cor unum, et viam unam,
ut timeant me universis diebus,
et bene sit eis, et filiis eorum post eos.
Et feriam eis pactum sempiternum,
et non desinam eis benefacere:
et timorem meum dabo in corde eorum,
ut non recedant a me.
Et lætabor super eis, cum bene eis fecero:
et plantabo eos in terra ista in veritate,
in toto corde meo et in tota anima mea.
Quia hæc dicit Dominus:
Sicut adduxi super populum istum omne malum hoc grande,
sic adducam super eos
omne bonum quod ego loquor ad eos.
Et possidebuntur agri in terra ista,
de qua vos dicitis quod deserta sit,
eo quod non remanserit homo et jumentum,
et data sit in manus Chaldæorum.
Agri ementur pecunia, et scribentur in libro,
et imprimetur signum, et testis adhibebitur,
in terra Benjamin et in circuitu Jerusalem,
in civitatibus Juda, et in civitatibus montanis,
et in civitatibus campestribus, et in civitatibus quæ ad austrum sunt,
quia convertam captivitatem eorum, ait Dominus.
