1 2 ἀκούσατε λόγον κυρίου πᾶσα ἡ Ιουδαία 3 τάδε λέγει κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ διορθώσατε τὰς ὁδοὺς ὑμῶν καὶ τὰ ἐπιτηδεύματα ὑμῶν καὶ κατοικιῶ ὑμᾶς ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ 4 μὴ πεποίθατε ἐ{F'} ἑαυτοῖς ἐπὶ λόγοις ψευδέσιν ὅτι τὸ παράπαν οὐκ ὠφελήσουσιν ὑμᾶς λέγοντες ναὸς κυρίου ναὸς κυρίου ἐστίν 5 ὅτι ἐὰν διορθοῦντες διορθώσητε τὰς ὁδοὺς ὑμῶν καὶ τὰ ἐπιτηδεύματα ὑμῶν καὶ ποιοῦντες ποιήσητε κρίσιν ἀνὰ μέσον ἀνδρὸς καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ πλησίον αὐτοῦ 6 καὶ προσήλυτον καὶ ὀρφανὸν καὶ χήραν μὴ καταδυναστεύσητε καὶ αἷμα ἀθῷον μὴ ἐκχέητε ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ καὶ ὀπίσω θεῶν ἀλλοτρίων μὴ πορεύησθε εἰς κακὸν ὑμῖν 7 καὶ κατοικιῶ ὑμᾶς ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ ἐν γῇ ᾗ ἔδωκα τοῖς πατράσιν ὑμῶν ἐξ αἰῶνος καὶ ἕως αἰῶνος 8 εἰ δὲ ὑμεῖς πεποίθατε ἐπὶ λόγοις ψευδέσιν ὅθεν οὐκ ὠφεληθήσεσθε 9 καὶ φονεύετε καὶ μοιχᾶσθε καὶ κλέπτετε καὶ ὀμνύετε ἐ{P'} ἀδίκῳ καὶ ἐθυμιᾶτε τῇ Βααλ καὶ ἐπορεύεσθε ὀπίσω θεῶν ἀλλοτρίων ὧν οὐκ οἴδατε τοῦ κακῶς εἶναι ὑμῖν 10 καὶ ἤλθετε καὶ ἔστητε ἐνώπιον ἐμοῦ ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ οὗ ἐπικέκληται τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐ{P'} αὐτῷ καὶ εἴπατε ἀπεσχήμεθα τοῦ μὴ ποιεῖν πάντα τὰ βδελύγματα ταῦτα 11 μὴ σπήλαιον λῃστῶν ὁ οἶκός μου οὗ ἐπικέκληται τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐ{P'} αὐτῷ ἐκεῖ ἐνώπιον ὑμῶν καὶ ἐγὼ ἰδοὺ ἑώρακα λέγει κύριος 12 ὅτι πορεύθητε εἰς τὸν τόπον μου τὸν ἐν Σηλωμ οὗ κατεσκήνωσα τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐκεῖ ἔμπροσθεν καὶ ἴδετε ἃ ἐποίησα αὐτῷ ἀπὸ προσώπου κακίας λαοῦ μου Ισραηλ 13 καὶ νῦν ἀν{Q'} ὧν ἐποιήσατε πάντα τὰ ἔργα ταῦτα καὶ ἐλάλησα πρὸς ὑμᾶς καὶ οὐκ ἠκούσατέ μου καὶ ἐκάλεσα ὑμᾶς καὶ οὐκ ἀπεκρίθητε 14 καὶ ποιήσω τῷ οἴκῳ τούτῳ ᾧ ἐπικέκληται τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐ{P'} αὐτῷ ἐ{F'} ᾧ ὑμεῖς πεποίθατε ἐ{P'} αὐτῷ καὶ τῷ τόπῳ ᾧ ἔδωκα ὑμῖν καὶ τοῖς πατράσιν ὑμῶν καθὼς ἐποίησα τῇ Σηλωμ 15 καὶ ἀπορρίψω ὑμᾶς ἀπὸ προσώπου μου καθὼς ἀπέρριψα τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς ὑμῶν πᾶν τὸ σπέρμα Εφραιμ 1 A message came from the Lord to Jeremias, 2 bidding him take his stand at the temple gate, and there proclaim aloud: Listen to this word of the Lord, men of Juda, that make your way in through these gates to worship him. 3 Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your lives and your likings, if you would have me dwell here among you. 4 Trust never in the false assurances that proclaim this place The Lord’s temple, The Lord’s temple, The Lord’s temple.[1] 5 Will you but amend your lives and your likings, giving one man redress against another, 6 not oppressing the alien, the orphan, the widow, nor in these precincts putting innocent men to death, nor courting, to your ruin, the gods of other nations, 7 then indeed I will make my dwelling here among you, in the land which was my gift to your fathers from the beginning to the end of time. 8 You put your trust in flattering hopes, which can nothing avail you; 9 theft, murder, adultery, the false oath, libations to Baal, the courting of alien gods that are no gods of yours, nothing comes amiss, 10 if only you can come and stand in my presence, here in this house, the shrine of my name, and tell yourselves you have made amends for all these your detestable doings! 11 What, does this house, the shrine of such a name, count for no more than a den of thieves, in eyes like yours? Think you, the Lord says, that eternal God has no eyes to see it?[2] 12 Go and visit that sanctuary of mine at Silo, where of old my power rested; look well, what havoc I have made of it, to punish the misdeeds of Israel, that was my people too. 13 Because of so much done amiss, the Lord says; because you would not listen when I cried early at your doors, or answer any call of mine; 14 this house, shrine of my name and centre of your hopes, this home I gave to you and to your fathers, shall fare as Silo fared. 15 All those brethren of yours, the whole stock of Ephraim, I banished from my presence, and you shall be banished in your turn. 1 Verbum quod factum est ad Jeremiam a Domino, dicens: 2 Sta in porta domus Domini, et prædica ibi verbum istud, et dic:

Audite verbum Domini, omnis Juda,
qui ingredimini per portas has ut adoretis Dominum.
3
Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël:
Bonas facite vias vestras, et studia vestra,
et habitabo vobiscum in loco isto.
4
Nolite confidere in verbis mendacii, dicentes:
Templum Domini, templum Domini, templum Domini est!
5
Quoniam si bene direxeritis vias vestras, et studia vestra;
si feceritis judicium inter virum et proximum ejus;
6
advenæ, et pupillo, et viduæ non feceritis calumniam,
nec sanguinem innocentem effuderitis in loco hoc,
et post deos alienos non ambulaveritis in malum vobismetipsis:
7
habitabo vobiscum in loco isto,
in terra quam dedi patribus vestris a sæculo et usque in sæculum.
8
Ecce vos confiditis vobis in sermonibus mendacii,
qui non proderunt vobis:
9
furari, occidere, adulterari,
jurare mendaciter, libare Baalim,
et ire post deos alienos quos ignoratis:
10
et venistis, et stetistis coram me
in domo hac, in qua invocatum est nomen meum,
et dixistis: Liberati sumus,
eo quod fecerimus omnes abominationes istas.
11
Numquid ergo spelunca latronum facta est domus ista,
in qua invocatum est nomen meum in oculis vestris?
Ego, ego sum: ego vidi, dicit Dominus.
12
Ite ad locum meum in Silo,
ubi habitavit nomen meum a principio,
et videte quæ fecerim ei propter malitiam populi mei Israël.
13
Et nunc, quia fecistis omnia opera hæc, dicit Dominus,
et locutus sum ad vos mane consurgens, et loquens, et non audistis:
et vocavi vos, et non respondistis:
14
faciam domui huic, in qua invocatum est nomen meum,
et in qua vos habetis fiduciam,
et loco quem dedi vobis et patribus vestris,
sicut feci Silo:
15
et projiciam vos a facie mea
sicut projeci omnes fratres vestros,
universum semen Ephraim.
16 καὶ σὺ μὴ προσεύχου περὶ τοῦ λαοῦ τούτου καὶ μὴ ἀξίου τοῦ ἐλεηθῆναι αὐτοὺς καὶ μὴ εὔχου καὶ μὴ προσέλθῃς μοι περὶ αὐτῶν ὅτι οὐκ εἰσακούσομαι 17 ἦ οὐχ ὁρᾷς τί αὐτοὶ ποιοῦσιν ἐν ταῖς πόλεσιν Ιουδα καὶ ἐν ταῖς ὁδοῖς Ιερουσαλημ 18 οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτῶν συλλέγουσιν ξύλα καὶ οἱ πατέρες αὐτῶν καίουσι πῦρ καὶ αἱ γυναῖκες αὐτῶν τρίβουσιν σταῖς τοῦ ποιῆσαι χαυῶνας τῇ στρατιᾷ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἔσπεισαν σπονδὰς θεοῖς ἀλλοτρίοις ἵνα παροργίσωσίν με 19 μὴ ἐμὲ αὐτοὶ παροργίζουσιν λέγει κύριος οὐχὶ ἑαυτούς ὅπως καταισχυνθῇ τὰ πρόσωπα αὐτῶν 20 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει κύριος ἰδοὺ ὀργὴ καὶ θυμός μου χεῖται ἐπὶ τὸν τόπον τοῦτον καὶ ἐπὶ τοὺς ἀνθρώπους καὶ ἐπὶ τὰ κτήνη καὶ ἐπὶ πᾶν ξύλον τοῦ ἀγροῦ αὐτῶν καὶ ἐπὶ πάντα τὰ γενήματα τῆς γῆς καὶ καυθήσεται καὶ οὐ σβεσθήσεται 16 Nor do thou, Jeremias,[3] think to plead for this people of mine, or take up in their name the burden of praise and prayer; thwart my will, thou shalt have no hearing. 17 Canst thou not see for thyself what ill deeds are done in the townships of Juda, in the very streets of Jerusalem? 18 See the children gathering sticks, the father lighting a fire, the mother kneading dough, and all to make cakes for the queen of heaven! See how they offer libation to alien gods, to despite me! 19 Yet not to me they do despite, the Lord says, rather to themselves; every hope of theirs shall fail them. 20 This warning, then, the Lord God sends them: Fury and indignation of mine are brewing against this place, man and beast, woodland tree and growing crop; and when that fire is lit, there shall be no quenching it. 16
Tu ergo, noli orare pro populo hoc,
nec assumas pro eis laudem et orationem:
et non obsistas mihi,
quia non exaudiam te.
17
Nonne vides quid isti faciunt in civitatibus Juda,
et in plateis Jerusalem?
18
Filii colligunt ligna,
et patres succendunt ignem,
et mulieres conspergunt adipem,
ut faciant placentas reginæ cæli,
et libent diis alienis,
et me ad iracundiam provocent.
19
Numquid me ad iracundiam provocant?
dicit Dominus;
nonne semetipsos in confusionem vultus sui?
20
Ideo hæc dicit Dominus Deus:
Ecce furor meus et indignatio mea conflatur super locum istum,
super viros, et super jumenta,
et super lignum regionis, et super fruges terræ:
et succendetur, et non extinguetur.
21 τάδε λέγει κύριος τὰ ὁλοκαυτώματα ὑμῶν συναγάγετε μετὰ τῶν θυσιῶν ὑμῶν καὶ φάγετε κρέα 22 ὅτι οὐκ ἐλάλησα πρὸς τοὺς πατέρας ὑμῶν καὶ οὐκ ἐνετειλάμην αὐτοῖς ἐν ἡμέρᾳ ᾗ ἀνήγαγον αὐτοὺς ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου περὶ ὁλοκαυτωμάτων καὶ θυσίας 23 ἀλ{L'} ἢ τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο ἐνετειλάμην αὐτοῖς λέγων ἀκούσατε τῆς φωνῆς μου καὶ ἔσομαι ὑμῖν εἰς θεόν καὶ ὑμεῖς ἔσεσθέ μοι εἰς λαόν καὶ πορεύεσθε ἐν πάσαις ταῖς ὁδοῖς μου αἷς ἂν ἐντείλωμαι ὑμῖν ὅπως ἂν εὖ ᾖ ὑμῖν 24 καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσάν μου καὶ οὐ προσέσχεν τὸ οὖς αὐτῶν ἀλ{L'} ἐπορεύθησαν ἐν τοῖς ἐνθυμήμασιν τῆς καρδίας αὐτῶν τῆς κακῆς καὶ ἐγενήθησαν εἰς τὰ ὄπισθεν καὶ οὐκ εἰς τὰ ἔμπροσθεν 25 ἀ{F'} ἧς ἡμέρας ἐξήλθοσαν οἱ πατέρες αὐτῶν ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης καὶ ἐξαπέστειλα πρὸς ὑμᾶς πάντας τοὺς δούλους μου τοὺς προφήτας ἡμέρας καὶ ὄρθρου καὶ ἀπέστειλα 26 καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσάν μου καὶ οὐ προσέσχεν τὸ οὖς αὐτῶν καὶ ἐσκλήρυναν τὸν τράχηλον αὐτῶν ὑπὲρ τοὺς πατέρας αὐτῶν 27 καὶ ἐρεῖς αὐτοῖς τὸν λόγον τοῦτον 28 τοῦτο τὸ ἔθνος ὃ οὐκ ἤκουσεν τῆς φωνῆς κυρίου οὐδὲ ἐδέξατο παιδείαν ἐξέλιπεν ἡ πίστις ἐκ στόματος αὐτῶν 21 A message from the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: No more be at pains to distinguish between burnt-sacrifice and offering; use for your own eating the flesh of all alike! 22 Burnt-sacrifices, offerings, not of these was my theme when I gave commandments to your fathers at the time of their deliverance from Egypt;[4] 23 my word of command to them was, Obey my bidding, if I am to be your God, you my people; follow the path I have marked out for you, as you hope to prosper. 24 And did they listen? Hearing they gave me none; their own whim, the false aim of their corrupt hearts was all the rule they lived by; still turned their backs on me, and refused to look my way; 25 so it has been since your fathers left Egypt, so it is yet. No day dawned but I was at work betimes, sending my servants to prophesy to them, 26 but still they would not listen, still hearing they gave me none; stubborn under my yoke, they outdid their own fathers in wickedness. 27 All this thou shalt say to them, but they will not listen to thee; thy call shall go unheeded. 28 Then tell them, Here is a people who will not listen to the voice of their own God, or accept reproof from him; loyalty is dead, the word is on their lips no more. 21
Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël:
Holocautomata vestra addite victimis vestris,
et comedite carnes:
22
quia non sum locutus cum patribus vestris, et non præcepi eis,
in die qua eduxi eos de terra Ægypti,
de verbo holocautomatum et victimarum:
23
sed hoc verbum præcepi eis, dicens:
Audite vocem meam,
et ero vobis Deus,
et vos eritis mihi populus:
et ambulate in omni via quam mandavi vobis,
ut bene sit vobis.
24
Et non audierunt, nec inclinaverunt aurem suam:
sed abierunt in voluntatibus et in pravitate cordis sui mali:
factique sunt retrorsum, et non in ante,
25
a die qua egressi sunt patres eorum de terra Ægypti
usque ad diem hanc.
Et misi ad vos omnes servos meos prophetas per diem,
consurgens diluculo, et mittens:
26
et non audierunt me,
nec inclinaverunt aurem suam:
sed induraverunt cervicem suam,
et pejus operati sunt quam patres eorum.
27 Et loqueris ad eos omnia verba hæc, et non audient te: et vocabis eos, et non respondebunt tibi. 28 Et dices ad eos:

Hæc est gens quæ non audivit vocem Domini Dei sui,
nec recepit disciplinam;
periit fides,
et ablata est de ore eorum.
29 κεῖραι τὴν κεφαλήν σου καὶ ἀπόρριπτε καὶ ἀνάλαβε ἐπὶ χειλέων θρῆνον ὅτι ἀπεδοκίμασεν κύριος καὶ ἀπώσατο τὴν γενεὰν τὴν ποιοῦσαν ταῦτα 30 ὅτι ἐποίησαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ιουδα τὸ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον ἐμοῦ λέγει κύριος ἔταξαν τὰ βδελύγματα αὐτῶν ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ οὗ ἐπικέκληται τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐ{P'} αὐτόν τοῦ μιᾶναι αὐτόν 31 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησαν τὸν βωμὸν τοῦ Ταφεθ ὅς ἐστιν ἐν φάραγγι υἱοῦ Εννομ τοῦ κατακαίειν τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτῶν καὶ τὰς θυγατέρας αὐτῶν ἐν πυρί ὃ οὐκ ἐνετειλάμην αὐτοῖς καὶ οὐ διενοήθην ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ μου 32 διὰ τοῦτο ἰδοὺ ἡμέραι ἔρχονται λέγει κύριος καὶ οὐκ ἐροῦσιν ἔτι βωμὸς τοῦ Ταφεθ καὶ φάραγξ υἱοῦ Εννομ ἀλ{L'} ἢ φάραγξ τῶν ἀνῃρημένων καὶ θάψουσιν ἐν τῷ Ταφεθ διὰ τὸ μὴ ὑπάρχειν τόπον 33 καὶ ἔσονται οἱ νεκροὶ τοῦ λαοῦ τούτου εἰς βρῶσιν τοῖς πετεινοῖς τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ τοῖς θηρίοις τῆς γῆς καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ὁ ἀποσοβῶν 34 καὶ καταλύσω ἐκ πόλεων Ιουδα καὶ ἐκ διόδων Ιερουσαλημ φωνὴν εὐφραινομένων καὶ φωνὴν χαιρόντων φωνὴν νυμφίου καὶ φωνὴν νύμφης ὅτι εἰς ἐρήμωσιν ἔσται πᾶσα ἡ γῆ 29 Cut off, Jerusalem,[5] those locks of thine, and cast them away from thee; loud let the hills echo with thy lament; on a guilty age, the Lord has pronounced sentence of banishment and rejection. 30 The men of Juda have defied my will, the Lord says; foul idols they have set up in the house that is the sanctuary of my name, and utterly profaned it; 31 in the valley of Ben-Ennom stands the hill-shrine of Topheth, where they sacrifice their own sons and daughters in the furnace, a rite not of my bidding, not of my imagining. 32 And now, the Lord says, a time is coming when no more will be heard of Topheth or Ben-Ennom; it will be called The Valley of the Slain; men will be finding room for their dead in Topheth, because other burying-ground is none. 33 Nay, Juda shall be carrion for birds that fly in air, for beasts that roam the earth; and never a man left to drive them away. 34 In the townships of Juda, in the streets of Jerusalem, cries of joy and mirth shall be heard no more, voice of bridegroom and of bride shall be heard no more; the whole land will have turned into a wilderness. 29
Tonde capillum tuum, et projice,
et sume in directum planctum:
quia projecit Dominus et reliquit generationem furoris sui;
30
quia fecerunt filii Juda malum in oculis meis, dicit Dominus.
Posuerunt offendicula sua in domo
in qua invocatum est nomen meum, ut polluerent eam:
31
et ædificaverunt excelsa Topheth,
quæ est in valle filii Ennom,
ut incenderent filios suos et filias suas igni,
quæ non præcepi, nec cogitavi in corde meo.
32
Ideo ecce dies venient, dicit Dominus,
et non dicetur amplius Topheth, et vallis filii Ennom,
sed vallis interfectionis:
et sepelient in Topheth, eo quod non sit locus.
33
Et erit morticinum populi hujus in cibos volucribus cæli et bestiis terræ,
et non erit qui abigat.
34
Et quiescere faciam de urbibus Juda,
et de plateis Jerusalem,
vocem gaudii et vocem lætitiæ,
vocem sponsi et vocem sponsæ:
in desolationem enim erit terra.
