Jeremiah 25


1  The word1697 that834 came1961 to5921 Jeremiah3414 concerning5921 all3605 the people5971 of Judah3063 in the fourth7243 year8141 of Jehoiakim3079 the son1121 of Josiah2977 king4428 of Judah,3063 that1931 was the first7224 year8141 of Nebuchadnezzar5019 king4428 of Babylon;894

2  The which834 Jeremiah3414 the prophet5030 spoke1696 unto5921 all3605 the people5971 of Judah,3063 and to413 all3605 the inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem,3389 saying,559

3  From4480 the thirteenth7969 6240 year8141 of Josiah2977 the son1121 of Amon526 king4428 of Judah,3063 even unto5704 this2088 day,3117 that2088 is the three7969 and twentieth6242 year,8141 the word1697 of the LORD3068 hath come1961 unto413 me, and I have spoken1696 unto413 you, rising early7925 and speaking;1696 but ye have not3808 hearkened.8085

4  And the LORD3068 hath sent7971 unto413 you 853 all3605 his servants5650 the prophets,5030 rising early7925 and sending7971 them; but ye have not3808 hearkened,8085 nor3808 inclined5186 853 your ear241 to hear.8085

5  They said,559 Turn ye again7725 now4994 every one376 from his evil7451 way,4480 1870 and from the evil4480 7455 of your doings,4611 and dwell3427 in5921 the land127 that834 the LORD3068 hath given5414 unto you and to your fathers1 forever5769 and ever:5704 5769

6  And go1980 not408 after310 other312 gods430 to serve5647 them, and to worship7812 them, and provoke me not to anger3808 3707 853 with the works4639 of your hands;3027 and I will do you no hurt.3808 7489

7  Yet ye have not3808 hearkened8085 unto413 me, saith5002 the LORD;3068 that4616 ye might provoke me to anger3707 with the works4639 of your hands3027 to your own hurt.7451

8  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts;6635 Because3282 834 ye have not3808 heard8085 853 my words,1697

9  Behold,2009 I will send7971 and take3947 853 all3605 the families4940 of the north,6828 saith5002 the LORD,3068 and Nebuchadnezzar5019 the king4428 of Babylon,894 my servant,5650 and will bring935 them against5921 this2063 land,776 and against5921 the inhabitants3427 thereof, and against5921 all3605 these428 nations1471 round about,5439 and will utterly destroy2763 them, and make7760 them an astonishment,8047 and a hissing,8322 and perpetual5769 desolations.2723

10  Moreover I will take6 from4480 them the voice6963 of mirth,8342 and the voice6963 of gladness,8057 the voice6963 of the bridegroom,2860 and the voice6963 of the bride,3618 the sound6963 of the millstones,7347 and the light216 of the candle.5216

11  And this2063 whole3605 land776 shall be1961 a desolation,2723 and an astonishment;8047 and these428 nations1471 shall serve5647 853 the king4428 of Babylon894 seventy7657 years.8141

12  And it shall come to pass,1961 when seventy7657 years8141 are accomplished,4390 that I will punish6485 5921 the king4428 of Babylon,894 and that1931 nation,1471 saith5002 the LORD,3068 for854 their iniquity,5771 and the land776 of the Chaldeans,3778 and will make7760 it perpetual5769 desolations.8077

13  And I will bring935 upon5921 that1931 land776 853 all3605 my words1697 which834 I have pronounced1696 against5921 it, even 853 all3605 that is written3789 in this2088 book,5612 which834 Jeremiah3414 hath prophesied5012 against5921 all3605 the nations.1471

14  For3588 many7227 nations1471 and great1419 kings4428 shall serve5647 themselves1992 of them also:1571 and I will recompense7999 them according to their deeds,6467 and according to the works4639 of their own hands.3027

15  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 God430 of Israel3478 unto413 me; Take3947 853 the wine3196 cup3563 of this2063 fury2534 at my hand,4480 3027 and cause 853 all3605 the nations,1471 to whom834 413 I595 send7971 thee, to drink8248 it.

16  And they shall drink,8354 and be moved,1607 and be mad,1984 because4480 6440 of the sword2719 that834 I will send7971 among996 them.

17  Then took3947 I 853 the cup3563 at the LORD's3068 hand,4480 3027 and made 853 all3605 the nations1471 to drink,8248 unto413 whom834 the LORD3068 had sent7971 me:

18  To wit, 853 Jerusalem,3389 and the cities5892 of Judah,3063 and the kings4428 thereof, and 853 the princes8269 thereof, to make5414 them a desolation,2723 an astonishment,8047 a hissing,8322 and a curse;7045 as it is this2088 day;3117

19  853 Pharaoh6547 king4428 of Egypt,4714 and his servants,5650 and his princes,8269 and all3605 his people;5971

20  And all3605 the mingled people,6154 and853 all3605 the kings4428 of the land776 of Uz,5780 and all3605 the kings4428 of the land776 of the Philistines,6430 and Ashkelon,831 and Azzah,5804 and Ekron,6138 and the remnant7611 of Ashdod,795

21  853 Edom,123 and Moab,4124 and the children1121 of Ammon,5983

22  And all3605 the kings4428 of Tyrus,6865 and all3605 the kings4428 of Zidon,6721 and the kings4428 of the isles339 which834 are beyond5676 the sea,3220

23  Dedan,1719 and Tema,8485 and Buz,938 and all3605 that are in the utmost7112 corners,6285

24  And all3605 the kings4428 of Arabia,6152 and all3605 the kings4428 of the mingled people6154 that dwell7931 in the desert,4057

25  And all3605 the kings4428 of Zimri,2174 and all3605 the kings4428 of Elam,5867 and all3605 the kings4428 of the Medes,4074

26  And all3605 the kings4428 of the north,6828 far7350 and near,7138 one376 with413 another,251 and all3605 the kingdoms4467 of the world,776 which834 are upon5921 the face6440 of the earth:127 and the king4428 of Sheshach8347 shall drink8354 after310 them.

27  Therefore thou shalt say559 unto413 them, Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 the God430 of Israel;3478 Drink8354 ye, and be drunken,7937 and spew,7006 and fall,5307 and rise6965 no3808 more, because4480 6440 of the sword2719 which834 I595 will send7971 among996 you.

28  And it shall be,1961 if3588 they refuse3985 to take3947 the cup3563 at thine hand4480 3027 to drink,8354 then shalt thou say559 unto413 them, Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts;6635 Ye shall certainly drink.8354 8354

29  For,3588 lo,2009 I595 begin2490 to bring evil7489 on the city5892 which834 is called7121 by5921 my name,8034 and should ye859 be utterly unpunished?5352 5352 Ye shall not3808 be unpunished:5352 for3588 I589 will call for7121 a sword2719 upon5921 all3605 the inhabitants3427 of the earth,776 saith5002 the LORD3068 of hosts.6635

30  Therefore prophesy5012 thou859 against413 them 853 all3605 these428 words,1697 and say559 unto413 them, The LORD3068 shall roar7580 from on high,4480 4791 and utter5414 his voice6963 from his holy6944 habitation;4480 4583 he shall mightily roar7580 7580 upon5921 his habitation;5116 he shall give6030 a shout,1959 as they that tread1869 the grapes, against413 all3605 the inhabitants3427 of the earth.776

31  A noise7588 shall come935 even to5704 the ends7097 of the earth;776 for3588 the LORD3068 hath a controversy7379 with the nations,1471 he1931 will plead8199 with all3605 flesh;1320 he will give5414 them that are wicked7563 to the sword,2719 saith5002 the LORD.3068

32  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 Behold,2009 evil7451 shall go forth3318 from nation4480 1471 to413 nation,1471 and a great1419 whirlwind5591 shall be raised up5782 from the coasts4480 3411 of the earth.776

33  And the slain2491 of the LORD3068 shall be1961 at that1931 day3117 from one end4480 7097 of the earth776 even unto5704 the other end7097 of the earth:776 they shall not3808 be lamented,5594 neither3808 gathered,622 nor3808 buried;6912 they shall be1961 dung1828 upon5921 6440 the ground.127

34  Howl,3213 ye shepherds,7462 and cry;2199 and wallow yourselves6428 in the ashes, ye principal117 of the flock:6629 for3588 the days3117 of your slaughter2873 and of your dispersions8600 are accomplished;4390 and ye shall fall5307 like a pleasant2532 vessel.3627

35  And the shepherds7462 shall have no way to flee,4480 6 4498 nor the principal4480 117 of the flock6629 to escape.6413

36  A voice6963 of the cry6818 of the shepherds,7462 and a howling3215 of the principal117 of the flock,6629 shall be heard: for3588 the LORD3068 hath spoiled7703 853 their pasture.4830

37  And the peaceable7965 habitations4999 are cut down1826 because4480 6440 of the fierce2740 anger639 of the LORD.3068

38  He hath forsaken5800 his covert,5520 as the lion:3715 for3588 their land776 is1961 desolate8047 because4480 6440 of the fierceness2740 of the oppressor,3238 and because4480 6440 of his fierce2740 anger.639


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 ἀπ᾽ 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 ἀπ᾽ 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

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 κατ᾽ αὐτῆς πάντα τὰ γεγραμμένα ἐν τῷ βιβλίῳ τούτῳ

14 ἃ ἐπροφήτευσεν Ιερεμιας ἐπὶ τὰ ἔθνη τὰ Αιλαμ

15 τάδε λέγει κύριος συντριβήτω τὸ τόξον Αιλαμ ἀρχὴ δυναστείας αὐτῶν

16 καὶ ἐπάξω ἐπὶ Αιλαμ τέσσαρας ἀνέμους ἐκ τῶν τεσσάρων ἄκρων τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ διασπερῶ αὐτοὺς ἐν πᾶσιν τοῖς ἀνέμοις τούτοις καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ἔθνος ὃ οὐχ ἥξει ἐκεῖ οἱ ἐξωσμένοι Αιλαμ

17 καὶ πτοήσω αὐτοὺς ἐναντίον τῶν ἐχθρῶν αὐτῶν τῶν ζητούντων τὴν ψυχὴν αὐτῶν καὶ ἐπάξω ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς κακὰ κατὰ τὴν ὀργὴν τοῦ θυμοῦ μου καὶ ἐπαποστελῶ ὀπίσω αὐτῶν τὴν μάχαιράν μου ἕως τοῦ ἐξαναλῶσαι αὐτούς

18 καὶ θήσω τὸν θρόνον μου ἐν Αιλαμ καὶ ἐξαποστελῶ ἐκεῖθεν βασιλέα καὶ μεγιστᾶνας

19 καὶ ἔσται ἐπ᾽ ἐσχάτου τῶν ἡμερῶν ἀποστρέψω τὴν αἰχμαλωσίαν Αιλαμ λέγει κύριος

20 ἐν ἀρχῇ βασιλεύοντος Σεδεκιου τοῦ βασιλέως ἐγένετο ὁ λόγος οὗτος περὶ Αιλαμ

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 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 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 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 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.

31 Pervenit sonitus usque ad extrema terræ,
quia judicium Domino cum gentibus:
judicatur ipse cum omni carne.
Impios tradidi gladio, dicit Dominus.

32 Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum:
Ecce afflictio egredietur de gente in gentem,
et turbo magnus egredietur a summitatibus terræ.

33 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.

34 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.

35 Et peribit fuga a pastoribus,
et salvatio ab optimatibus gregis.

36 Vox clamoris pastorum, et ululatus optimatum gregis,
quia vastavit Dominus pascua eorum:

37 et conticuerunt arva pacis a facie iræ furoris Domini.

38 Dereliquit quasi leo umbraculum suum,
quia facta est terra eorum in desolationem
a facie iræ columbæ,
et a facie iræ furoris Domini.]
