Jeremiah 34


1  The word1697 which834 came1961 unto413 Jeremiah3414 from4480 854 the LORD,3068 when Nebuchadnezzar5019 king4428 of Babylon,894 and all3605 his army,2428 and all3605 the kingdoms4467 of the earth776 of his dominion,4480 4475 3027 and all3605 the people,5971 fought3898 against5921 Jerusalem,3389 and against5921 all3605 the cities5892 thereof, saying,559

2  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 the God430 of Israel;3478 Go1980 and speak559 to413 Zedekiah6667 king4428 of Judah,3063 and tell559 413 him, Thus3541 saith559 the LORD;3068 Behold,2009 I will give5414 853 this2063 city5892 into the hand3027 of the king4428 of Babylon,894 and he shall burn8313 it with fire:784

3  And thou859 shalt not3808 escape4422 out of his hand,4480 3027 but3588 shalt surely be taken,8610 8610 and delivered5414 into his hand;3027 and thine eyes5869 shall behold7200 853 the eyes5869 of the king4428 of Babylon,894 and he shall speak1696 with854 thee mouth6310 to mouth,6310 and thou shalt go935 to Babylon.894

4  Yet389 hear8085 the word1697 of the LORD,3068 O Zedekiah6667 king4428 of Judah;3063 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of5921 thee, Thou shalt not3808 die4191 by the sword:2719

5  But thou shalt die4191 in peace:7965 and with the burnings4955 of thy fathers,1 the former7223 kings4428 which834 were1961 before6440 thee, so3651 shall they burn8313 odors for thee; and they will lament5594 thee, saying, Ah1945 lord!113 for3588 I589 have pronounced1696 the word,1697 saith5002 the LORD.3068

6  Then Jeremiah3414 the prophet5030 spoke1696 853 all3605 these428 words1697 unto413 Zedekiah6667 king4428 of Judah3063 in Jerusalem,3389

7  When the king4428 of Babylon's894 army2428 fought3898 against5921 Jerusalem,3389 and against5921 all3605 the cities5892 of Judah3063 that were left,3498 against413 Lachish,3923 and against413 Azekah:5825 for3588 these2007 defensed4013 cities5892 remained7604 of the cities5892 of Judah.3063

8  This is the word1697 that834 came1961 unto413 Jeremiah3414 from4480 854 the LORD,3068 after that310 the king4428 Zedekiah6667 had made3772 a covenant1285 with854 all3605 the people5971 which834 were at Jerusalem,3389 to proclaim7121 liberty1865 unto them;

9  That every man376 should let 853 his manservant,5650 and every man376 853 his maidservant,8198 being a Hebrew5680 or a Hebrewess,5680 go7971 free;2670 that none1115 376 should serve5647 himself of them, to wit, of a Jew3064 his brother.251

10  Now when all3605 the princes,8269 and all3605 the people,5971 which834 had entered935 into the covenant,1285 heard8085 that every one376 should let 853 his manservant,5650 and every one376 853 his maidservant,8198 go7971 free,2670 that none1115 should serve5647 themselves of them any more,5750 then they obeyed,8085 and let them go.7971

11  But afterward310 3651 they turned,7725 and caused 853 the servants5650 and the handmaids,8198 whom834 they had let go7971 free,2670 to return,7725 and brought them into subjection3533 for servants5650 and for handmaids.8198

12  Therefore the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 to413 Jeremiah3414 from4480 854 the LORD,3068 saying,559

13  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 the God430 of Israel;3478 I595 made3772 a covenant1285 with854 your fathers1 in the day3117 that I brought them forth3318 853 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt,4714 out of the house4480 1004 of bondmen,5650 saying,559

14  At the end4480 7093 of seven7651 years8141 let ye go7971 every man376 853 his brother251 a Hebrew,5680 which834 hath been sold4376 unto thee; and when he hath served5647 thee six8337 years,8141 thou shalt let him go7971 free2670 from4480 5973 thee: but your fathers1 hearkened8085 not3808 unto413 me, neither3808 inclined5186 853 their ear.241

15  And ye859 were now3117 turned,7725 and had done6213 853 right3477 in my sight,5869 in proclaiming7121 liberty1865 every man376 to his neighbor;7453 and ye had made3772 a covenant1285 before6440 me in the house1004 which834 is called7121 by5921 my name:8034

16  But ye turned7725 and polluted2490 853 my name,8034 and caused every man376 853 his servant,5650 and every man376 853 his handmaid,8198 whom834 ye had set7971 at liberty2670 at their pleasure,5315 to return,7725 and brought them into subjection,3533 853 to be1961 unto you for servants5650 and for handmaids.8198

17  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the LORD;3068 Ye859 have not3808 hearkened8085 unto413 me, in proclaiming7121 liberty,1865 every one376 to his brother,251 and every man376 to his neighbor:7453 behold,2009 I proclaim7121 a liberty1865 for you, saith5002 the LORD,3068 to413 the sword,2719 to413 the pestilence,1698 and to413 the famine;7458 and I will make5414 you to be removed2189 into all3605 the kingdoms4467 of the earth.776

18  And I will give5414 853 the men376 that have transgressed5674 853 my covenant,1285 which834 have not3808 performed6965 853 the words1697 of the covenant1285 which834 they had made3772 before6440 me, when834 they cut3772 the calf5695 in twain,8147 and passed5674 between996 the parts1335 thereof,

19  The princes8269 of Judah,3063 and the princes8269 of Jerusalem,3389 the eunuchs,5631 and the priests,3548 and all3605 the people5971 of the land,776 which passed5674 between996 the parts1335 of the calf;5695

20  I will even give5414 them into the hand3027 of their enemies,341 and into the hand3027 of them that seek1245 their life:5315 and their dead bodies5038 shall be1961 for meat3978 unto the fowls5775 of the heaven,8064 and to the beasts929 of the earth.776

21  And Zedekiah6667 king4428 of Judah3063 and his princes8269 will I give5414 into the hand3027 of their enemies,341 and into the hand3027 of them that seek1245 their life,5315 and into the hand3027 of the king4428 of Babylon's894 army,2428 which are gone up5927 from4480 5921 you.

22  Behold,2009 I will command,6680 saith5002 the LORD,3068 and cause them to return7725 to413 this2063 city;5892 and they shall fight3898 against5921 it, and take3920 it, and burn8313 it with fire:784 and I will make5414 the cities5892 of Judah3063 a desolation8077 without4480 369 an inhabitant.3427


2 οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ποίησον δεσμοὺς καὶ κλοιοὺς καὶ περίθου περὶ τὸν τράχηλόν σου

3 καὶ ἀποστελεῖς αὐτοὺς πρὸς βασιλέα Ιδουμαίας καὶ πρὸς βασιλέα Μωαβ καὶ πρὸς βασιλέα υἱῶν Αμμων καὶ πρὸς βασιλέα Τύρου καὶ πρὸς βασιλέα Σιδῶνος ἐν χερσὶν ἀγγέλων αὐτῶν τῶν ἐρχομένων εἰς ἀπάντησιν αὐτῶν εἰς Ιερουσαλημ πρὸς Σεδεκιαν βασιλέα Ιουδα

4 καὶ συντάξεις αὐτοῖς πρὸς τοὺς κυρίους αὐτῶν εἰπεῖν οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ οὕτως ἐρεῖτε πρὸς τοὺς κυρίους ὑμῶν

5 ὅτι ἐγὼ ἐποίησα τὴν γῆν ἐν τῇ ἰσχύι μου τῇ μεγάλῃ καὶ ἐν τῷ ἐπιχείρῳ μου τῷ ὑψηλῷ καὶ δώσω αὐτὴν ᾧ ἐὰν δόξῃ ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς μου

6 ἔδωκα τὴν γῆν τῷ Ναβουχοδονοσορ βασιλεῖ Βαβυλῶνος δουλεύειν αὐτῷ καὶ τὰ θηρία τοῦ ἀγροῦ ἐργάζεσθαι αὐτῷ

8 καὶ τὸ ἔθνος καὶ ἡ βασιλεία ὅσοι ἐὰν μὴ ἐμβάλωσιν τὸν τράχηλον αὐτῶν ὑπὸ τὸν ζυγὸν βασιλέως Βαβυλῶνος ἐν μαχαίρᾳ καὶ ἐν λιμῷ ἐπισκέψομαι αὐτούς εἶπεν κύριος ἕως ἐκλίπωσιν ἐν χειρὶ αὐτοῦ

9 καὶ ὑμεῖς μὴ ἀκούετε τῶν ψευδοπροφητῶν ὑμῶν καὶ τῶν μαντευομένων ὑμῖν καὶ τῶν ἐνυπνιαζομένων ὑμῖν καὶ τῶν οἰωνισμάτων ὑμῶν καὶ τῶν φαρμακῶν ὑμῶν τῶν λεγόντων οὐ μὴ ἐργάσησθε τῷ βασιλεῖ Βαβυλῶνος

10 ὅτι ψευδῆ αὐτοὶ προφητεύουσιν ὑμῖν πρὸς τὸ μακρῦναι ὑμᾶς ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς ὑμῶν

11 καὶ τὸ ἔθνος ὃ ἐὰν εἰσαγάγῃ τὸν τράχηλον αὐτοῦ ὑπὸ τὸν ζυγὸν βασιλέως Βαβυλῶνος καὶ ἐργάσηται αὐτῷ καὶ καταλείψω αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐργᾶται αὐτῷ καὶ ἐνοικήσει ἐν αὐτῇ

12 καὶ πρὸς Σεδεκιαν βασιλέα Ιουδα ἐλάλησα κατὰ πάντας τοὺς λόγους τούτους λέγων εἰσαγάγετε τὸν τράχηλον ὑμῶν

14 καὶ ἐργάσασθε τῷ βασιλεῖ Βαβυλῶνος ὅτι ἄδικα αὐτοὶ προφητεύουσιν ὑμῖν

15 ὅτι οὐκ ἀπέστειλα αὐτούς φησὶν κύριος καὶ προφητεύουσιν τῷ ὀνόματί μου ἐπ᾽ ἀδίκῳ πρὸς τὸ ἀπολέσαι ὑμᾶς καὶ ἀπολεῖσθε ὑμεῖς καὶ οἱ προφῆται ὑμῶν οἱ προφητεύοντες ὑμῖν ἐπ᾽ ἀδίκῳ ψευδῆ

16 ὑμῖν καὶ παντὶ τῷ λαῷ τούτῳ καὶ τοῖς ἱερεῦσιν ἐλάλησα λέγων οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος μὴ ἀκούετε τῶν λόγων τῶν προφητῶν τῶν προφητευόντων ὑμῖν λεγόντων ἰδοὺ σκεύη οἴκου κυρίου ἐπιστρέψει ἐκ Βαβυλῶνος ὅτι ἄδικα αὐτοὶ προφητεύουσιν ὑμῖν οὐκ ἀπέστειλα αὐτούς

18 εἰ προφῆταί εἰσιν καὶ εἰ ἔστιν λόγος κυρίου ἐν αὐτοῖς ἀπαντησάτωσάν μοι

19 ὅτι οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος καὶ τῶν ἐπιλοίπων σκευῶν

20 ὧν οὐκ ἔλαβεν βασιλεὺς Βαβυλῶνος ὅτε ἀπῴκισεν τὸν Ιεχονιαν ἐξ Ιερουσαλημ

22 εἰς Βαβυλῶνα εἰσελεύσεται λέγει κύριος

1 Verbum quod factum est ad Jeremiam a Domino quando Nabuchodonosor rex Babylonis, et omnis exercitus ejus, universaque regna terræ quæ erant sub potestate manus ejus, et omnes populi, bellabant contra Jerusalem, et contra omnes urbes ejus, dicens:

2 Hæc dicit Dominus Deus Israël: Vade, et loquere ad Sedeciam regem Juda, et dices ad eum: Hæc dicit Dominus: Ecce ego tradam civitatem hanc in manus regis Babylonis, et succendet eam igni:

3 et tu non effugies de manu ejus, sed comprehensione capieris, et in manu ejus traderis: et oculi tui oculos regis Babylonis videbunt, et os ejus cum ore tuo loquetur, et Babylonem introibis.

4 Attamen audi verbum Domini, Sedecia, rex Juda: Hæc dicit Dominus ad te: Non morieris in gladio,

5 sed in pace morieris: et secundum combustiones patrum tuorum, regum priorum qui fuerunt ante te, sic comburent te: et: Væ domine, plangent te: quia verbum ego locutus sum, dicit Dominus.

6 Et locutus est Jeremias propheta ad Sedeciam regem Juda universa verba hæc in Jerusalem.

7 Et exercitus regis Babylonis pugnabat contra Jerusalem, et contra omnes civitates Juda quæ reliquæ erant, contra Lachis et contra Azecha: hæ enim supererant de civitatibus Juda, urbes munitæ.

8 Verbum quod factum est ad Jeremiam a Domino, postquam percussit rex Sedecias fœdus cum omni populo in Jerusalem, prædicans

9 ut dimitteret unusquisque servum suum et unusquisque ancillam suam, Hebræum et Hebræam, liberos, et nequaquam dominarentur eis, id est, in Judæo et fratre suo.

10 Audierunt ergo omnes principes et universus populus qui inierant pactum ut dimitteret unusquisque servum suum et unusquisque ancillam suam liberos, et ultra non dominarentur eis: audierunt igitur, et dimiserunt.

11 Et conversi sunt deinceps: et retraxerunt servos et ancillas suas quos dimiserant liberos, et subjugaverunt in famulos et famulas.

12 Et factum est verbum Domini ad Jeremiam a Domino, dicens:

13 Hæc dicit Dominus Deus Israël: Ego percussi fœdus cum patribus vestris in die qua eduxi eos de terra Ægypti, de domo servitutis, dicens:

14 Cum completi fuerint septem anni, dimittat unusquisque fratrem suum Hebræum, qui venditus est ei: et serviet tibi sex annis, et dimittes eum a te liberum: et non audierunt patres vestri me, nec inclinaverunt aurem suam.

15 Et conversi estis vos hodie, et fecistis quod rectum est in oculis meis, ut prædicaretis libertatem unusquisque ad amicum suum: et inistis pactum in conspectu meo, in domo in qua invocatum est nomen meum super eam:

16 et reversi estis, et commaculastis nomen meum, et reduxistis unusquisque servum suum et unusquisque ancillam suam quos dimiseratis ut essent liberi et suæ potestatis, et subjugastis eos ut sint vobis servi et ancillæ.

17 Propterea hæc dicit Dominus: Vos non audistis me, ut prædicaretis libertatem unusquisque fratri suo et unusquisque amico suo: ecce ego prædico vobis libertatem, ait Dominus, ad gladium, ad pestem, et ad famem, et dabo vos in commotionem cunctis regnis terræ.

18 Et dabo viros qui prævaricantur fœdus meum, et non observaverunt verba fœderis quibus assensi sunt in conspectu meo, vitulum quem conciderunt in duas partes, et transierunt inter divisiones ejus,

19 principes Juda et principes Jerusalem, eunuchi et sacerdotes, et omnis populus terræ, qui transierunt inter divisiones vituli:

20 et dabo eos in manus inimicorum suorum, et in manus quærentium animam eorum, et erit morticinum eorum in escam volatilibus cæli et bestiis terræ.

21 Et Sedeciam regem Juda, et principes ejus, dabo in manus inimicorum suorum, et in manus quærentium animas eorum, et in manus exercituum regis Babylonis, qui recesserunt a vobis.

22 Ecce ego præcipio, dicit Dominus, et reducam eos in civitatem hanc, et præliabuntur adversus eam, et capient eam, et incendent igni: et civitates Juda dabo in solitudinem, eo quod non sit habitator.
