1 τότε εἶπεν κύριος πρός με βάδισον καὶ κτῆσαι βῖκον πεπλασμένον ὀστράκινον καὶ ἄξεις ἀπὸ τῶν πρεσβυτέρων τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν πρεσβυτέρων τῶν ἱερέων 2 καὶ ἐξελεύσῃ εἰς τὸ πολυάνδριον υἱῶν τῶν τέκνων αὐτῶν ὅ ἐστιν ἐπὶ τῶν προθύρων πύλης τῆς χαρσιθ καὶ ἀνάγνωθι ἐκεῖ πάντας τοὺς λόγους οὓς ἂν λαλήσω πρὸς σέ 3 καὶ ἐρεῖς αὐτοῖς ἀκούσατε τὸν λόγον κυρίου βασιλεῖς Ιουδα καὶ ἄνδρες Ιουδα καὶ οἱ κατοικοῦντες Ιερουσαλημ καὶ οἱ εἰσπορευόμενοι ἐν ταῖς πύλαις ταύταις τάδε λέγει κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐπάγω ἐπὶ τὸν τόπον τοῦτον κακὰ ὥστε παντὸς ἀκούοντος αὐτὰ ἠχήσει ἀμφότερα τὰ ὦτα αὐτοῦ 4 ἀν{Q'} ὧν ἐγκατέλιπόν με καὶ ἀπηλλοτρίωσαν τὸν τόπον τοῦτον καὶ ἐθυμίασαν ἐν αὐτῷ θεοῖς ἀλλοτρίοις οἷς οὐκ ᾔδεισαν αὐτοὶ καὶ οἱ πατέρες αὐτῶν καὶ οἱ βασιλεῖς Ιουδα ἔπλησαν τὸν τόπον τοῦτον αἱμάτων ἀθῴων 5 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησαν ὑψηλὰ τῇ Βααλ τοῦ κατακαίειν τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτῶν ἐν πυρί ἃ οὐκ ἐνετειλάμην οὐδὲ ἐλάλησα οὐδὲ διενοήθην ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ μου 6 διὰ τοῦτο ἰδοὺ ἡμέραι ἔρχονται λέγει κύριος καὶ οὐ κληθήσεται τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ ἔτι διάπτωσις καὶ πολυάνδριον υἱοῦ Εννομ ἀλ{L'} ἢ πολυάνδριον τῆς σφαγῆς 7 καὶ σφάξω τὴν βουλὴν Ιουδα καὶ τὴν βουλὴν Ιερουσαλημ ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ καὶ καταβαλῶ αὐτοὺς ἐν μαχαίρᾳ ἐναντίον τῶν ἐχθρῶν αὐτῶν καὶ ἐν χερσὶν τῶν ζητούντων τὰς ψυχὰς αὐτῶν καὶ δώσω τοὺς νεκροὺς αὐτῶν εἰς βρῶσιν τοῖς πετεινοῖς τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ τοῖς θηρίοις τῆς γῆς 8 καὶ τάξω τὴν πόλιν ταύτην εἰς ἀφανισμὸν καὶ εἰς συριγμόν πᾶς ὁ παραπορευόμενος ἐ{P'} αὐτῆς σκυθρωπάσει καὶ συριεῖ ὑπὲρ πάσης τῆς πληγῆς αὐτῆς 9 καὶ ἔδονται τὰς σάρκας τῶν υἱῶν αὐτῶν καὶ τὰς σάρκας τῶν θυγατέρων αὐτῶν καὶ ἕκαστος τὰς σάρκας τοῦ πλησίον αὐτοῦ ἔδονται ἐν τῇ περιοχῇ καὶ ἐν τῇ πολιορκίᾳ ᾗ πολιορκήσουσιν αὐτοὺς οἱ ἐχθροὶ αὐτῶν 1 Up, the Lord said to me, and get thee a jar of earthenware; 2 take it to the valley of Ben-Ennom, close to the Earthenware Gate, with elders of the people and some of the older priests for thy company; there prophesy as I bid thee. 3 To the dynasty of Juda, to all the citizens of Jerusalem, give this message from the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: I mean to bring such calamity on this place, as shall ring in the ears of all that hear it. 4 The place that once was mine, now alienated by the rebels that dwell there; to alien gods they never knew, no fathers of theirs, no kings of Juda ever knew, they have done sacrifice in this place, drenching it with the blood of the innocent. 5 Here the gods of the country-side must have their hill-shrines, and children must be burnt as a sacrifice in their honour; a rite not of my prescribing, or enjoining, or imagining. 6 And now, the Lord says, a time is coming when it will no more be called Topheth, or the Valley of Ben-Ennom; it will be called the Valley of the Slain. 7 In this valley all the hopes of Juda and Jerusalem shall be poured away; at the sword’s point they shall meet their enemy and fall into pitiless hands, and I will give leave to bird in air, beast on earth, to prey on the carrion of them. 8 A thing of horror and scorn this city shall be; no passer-by but will shudder at it, or hiss derision at the memory of its sufferings. 9 Nay, a pitiless enemy shall beleaguer them with so hard a siege, that I will leave them no food save the flesh of son and daughter; man shall eat man. 1 Hæc dicit Dominus: Vade, et accipe lagunculam figuli testeam a senioribus populi et a senioribus sacerdotum, 2 et egredere ad vallem filii Ennom, quæ est juxta introitum portæ fictilis: et prædicabis ibi verba quæ ego loquar ad te. 3 Et dices:

Audite verbum Domini,
reges Juda, et habitatores Jerusalem.
Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël:
Ecce ego inducam afflictionem super locum istum,
ita ut omnis qui audierit illam, tinniant aures ejus,
4
eo quod dereliquerint me,
et alienum fecerint locum istum,
et libaverunt in eo diis alienis quos nescierunt,
ipsi et patres eorum, et reges Juda:
et repleverunt locum istum sanguine innocentum,
5
et ædificaverunt excelsa Baalim,
ad comburendos filios suos igni in holocaustum Baalim:
quæ non præcepi, nec locutus sum,
nec ascenderunt in cor meum.
6
Propterea ecce dies veniunt, dicit Dominus,
et non vocabitur amplius locus iste Topheth,
et vallis filii Ennom,
sed vallis occisionis.
7
Et dissipabo consilium Juda et Jerusalem in loco isto,
et subvertam eos gladio in conspectu inimicorum suorum,
et in manu quærentium animas eorum:
et dabo cadavera eorum escam volatilibus cæli et bestiis terræ.
8
Et ponam civitatem hanc in stuporem, et in sibilum:
omnis qui præterierit per eam obstupescet,
et sibilabit super universa plaga ejus.
9
Et cibabo eos carnibus filiorum suorum et carnibus filiarum suarum:
et unusquisque carnem amici sui comedet in obsidione,
et in angustia in qua concludent eos inimici eorum,
et qui quærunt animas eorum.
10 καὶ συντρίψεις τὸν βῖκον κα{T'} ὀφθαλμοὺς τῶν ἀνδρῶν τῶν ἐκπορευομένων μετὰ σοῦ 11 καὶ ἐρεῖς τάδε λέγει κύριος οὕτως συντρίψω τὸν λαὸν τοῦτον καὶ τὴν πόλιν ταύτην καθὼς συντρίβεται ἄγγος ὀστράκινον ὃ οὐ δυνήσεται ἰαθῆναι ἔτι 12 οὕτως ποιήσω λέγει κύριος τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ καὶ τοῖς κατοικοῦσιν ἐν αὐτῷ τοῦ δοθῆναι τὴν πόλιν ταύτην ὡς τὴν διαπίπτουσαν 13 καὶ οἱ οἶκοι Ιερουσαλημ καὶ οἱ οἶκοι βασιλέων Ιουδα ἔσονται καθὼς ὁ τόπος ὁ διαπίπτων τῶν ἀκαθαρσιῶν ἐν πάσαις ταῖς οἰκίαις ἐν αἷς ἐθυμίασαν ἐπὶ τῶν δωμάτων αὐτῶν πάσῃ τῇ στρατιᾷ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἔσπεισαν σπονδὰς θεοῖς ἀλλοτρίοις 10 Then break that jar of thine, for all thy company to see, 11 and give them this message from the Lord of hosts: Broken to pieces you shall be, nation and city, like yonder thing of clay that is past all repairing; men will be finding room for their dead in Topheth, because other burying-ground is none. 12 Such, the Lord says, is the doom I have pronounced on city and citizens; Jerusalem itself shall be a Topheth, 13 all the houses in it, and yonder palace where the kings of Juda reigned, as Topheth unclean; it was there, on the roof-tops, they sacrificed to all the host of heaven, and made offering to alien gods. 10 Et conteres lagunculam in oculis virorum qui ibunt tecum, 11 et dices ad eos:

Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum:
Sic conteram populum istum, et civitatem istam,
sicut conteritur vas figuli,
quod non potest ultra instaurari:
et in Topheth sepelientur,
eo quod non sit alius locus ad sepeliendum.
12
Sic faciam loco huic, ait Dominus,
et habitatoribus ejus,
et ponam civitatem istam sicut Topheth.
13
Et erunt domus Jerusalem,
et domus regum Juda,
sicut locus Topheth, immundæ,
omnes domus in quarum domatibus sacrificaverunt omni militiæ cæli,
et libaverunt libamina diis alienis.
14 καὶ ἦλθεν Ιερεμιας ἀπὸ τῆς διαπτώσεως οὗ ἀπέστειλεν αὐτὸν κύριος ἐκεῖ τοῦ προφητεῦσαι καὶ ἔστη ἐν τῇ αὐλῇ οἴκου κυρίου καὶ εἶπε πρὸς πάντα τὸν λαόν 15 τάδε λέγει κύριος ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐπάγω ἐπὶ τὴν πόλιν ταύτην καὶ ἐπὶ πάσας τὰς πόλεις αὐτῆς καὶ ἐπὶ τὰς κώμας αὐτῆς ἅπαντα τὰ κακά ἃ ἐλάλησα ἐ{P'} αὐτήν ὅτι ἐσκλήρυναν τὸν τράχηλον αὐτῶν τοῦ μὴ εἰσακούειν τῶν λόγων μου 14 His errand at Topheth done, Jeremias took his stand in the temple courts, and gave the people this message from the Lord God of Israel: 15 All these threats against Jerusalem and her daughter cities I mean to perform; the punishment of a yoke refused, a call unheeded. 14 Venit autem Jeremias de Topheth, quo miserat eum Dominus ad prophetandum, et stetit in atrio domus Domini, et dixit ad omnem populum: 15 Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël: Ecce ego inducam super civitatem hanc, et super omnes urbes ejus, universa mala quæ locutus sum adversum eam, quoniam induraverunt cervicem suam ut non audirent sermones meos.
