Jeremiah 14


1  The word1697 of the LORD3068 that834 came1961 to413 Jeremiah3414 concerning5921 1697 the dearth.1226

2  Judah3063 mourneth,56 and the gates8179 thereof languish;535 they are black6937 unto the ground;776 and the cry6682 of Jerusalem3389 is gone up.5927

3  And their nobles117 have sent7971 their little ones6810 to the waters:4325 they came935 to5921 the pits,1356 and found4672 no3808 water;4325 they returned7725 with their vessels3627 empty;7387 they were ashamed954 and confounded,3637 and covered2645 their heads.7218

4  Because5668 the ground127 is chapped,2865 for3588 there was1961 no3808 rain1653 in the earth,776 the plowmen406 were ashamed,954 they covered2645 their heads.7218

5  Yea,1571 the hind365 also calved3205 in the field,7704 and forsook5800 it, because3588 there was1961 no3808 grass.1877

6  And the wild asses6501 did stand5975 in5921 the high places,8205 they snuffed up7602 the wind7307 like dragons;8577 their eyes5869 did fail,3615 because3588 there was no369 grass.6212

7  O LORD,3068 though518 our iniquities5771 testify6030 against us, do6213 thou it for thy name's sake:4616 8034 for3588 our backslidings4878 are many;7231 we have sinned2398 against thee.

8  O the hope4723 of Israel,3478 the savior3467 thereof in time6256 of trouble,6869 why4100 shouldest thou be1961 as a stranger1616 in the land,776 and as a wayfaring man732 that turneth aside5186 to tarry3885 for a night?

9  Why4100 shouldest thou be1961 as a man376 astonished,1724 as a mighty man1368 that cannot3201 3808 save?3467 yet thou,859 O LORD,3068 art in the midst7130 of us, and we are called7121 by thy name;8034 leave5117 us not.408

10  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 unto this2088 people,5971 Thus3651 have they loved157 to wander,5128 they have not3808 refrained2820 their feet,7272 therefore the LORD3068 doth not3808 accept7521 them; he will now6258 remember2142 their iniquity,5771 and visit6485 their sins.2403

11  Then said559 the LORD3068 unto413 me, Pray6419 not408 for1157 this2088 people5971 for their good.2896

12  When3588 they fast,6684 I will not369 hear8085 413 their cry;7440 and when3588 they offer5927 burnt offering5930 and an oblation,4503 I will not369 accept7521 them: but3588 I595 will consume3615 them by the sword,2719 and by the famine,7458 and by the pestilence.1698

13  Then said559 I, Ah,162 Lord136 GOD!3069 behold,2009 the prophets5030 say559 unto them, Ye shall not3808 see7200 the sword,2719 neither3808 shall ye have1961 famine;7458 but3588 I will give5414 you assured571 peace7965 in this2088 place.4725

14  Then the LORD3068 said559 unto413 me, The prophets5030 prophesy5012 lies8267 in my name:8034 I sent7971 them not,3808 neither3808 have I commanded6680 them, neither3808 spoke1696 unto413 them: they1992 prophesy5012 unto you a false8267 vision2377 and divination,7081 and a thing of naught,434 and the deceit8649 of their heart.3820

15  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 concerning5921 the prophets5030 that prophesy5012 in my name,8034 and I589 sent7971 them not,3808 yet they1992 say,559 Sword2719 and famine7458 shall not3808 be1961 in this2063 land;776 By sword2719 and famine7458 shall those1992 prophets5030 be consumed.8552

16  And the people5971 to whom834 they1992 prophesy5012 shall be1961 cast out7993 in the streets2351 of Jerusalem3389 because4480 6440 of the famine7458 and the sword;2719 and they shall have none369 to bury6912 them,1992 them,1992 their wives,802 nor their sons,1121 nor their daughters:1323 for I will pour8210 853 their wickedness7451 upon5921 them.

17  Therefore thou shalt say559 853 this2088 word1697 unto413 them; Let mine eyes5869 run down3381 with tears1832 night3915 and day,3119 and let them not408 cease:1820 for3588 the virgin1330 daughter1323 of my people5971 is broken7665 with a great1419 breach,7667 with a very3966 grievous2470 blow.4347

18  If518 I go forth3318 into the field,7704 then behold2009 the slain2491 with the sword!2719 and if518 I enter935 into the city,5892 then behold2009 them that are sick8463 with famine!7458 yea,3588 both1571 the prophet5030 and1571 the priest3548 go about5503 into413 a land776 that they know3045 not.3808

19  Hast thou utterly rejected3988 3988 853 Judah?3063 hath thy soul5315 loathed1602 Zion?6726 why4069 hast thou smitten5221 us, and there is no369 healing4832 for us? we looked6960 for peace,7965 and there is no369 good;2896 and for the time6256 of healing,4832 and behold2009 trouble!1205

20  We acknowledge,3045 O LORD,3068 our wickedness,7562 and the iniquity5771 of our fathers:1 for3588 we have sinned2398 against thee.

21  Do not408 abhor5006 us, for thy name's sake,4616 8034 do not408 disgrace5034 the throne3678 of thy glory:3519 remember,2142 break6565 not408 thy covenant1285 with854 us.

22  Are there3426 any among the vanities1892 of the Gentiles1471 that can cause rain?1652 or518 can the heavens8064 give5414 showers?7241 art not3808 thou859 he,1931 O LORD3068 our God?430 therefore we will wait6960 upon thee: for3588 thou859 hast made6213 853 all3605 these428 things.


1 καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος κυρίου πρὸς Ιερεμιαν περὶ τῆς ἀβροχίας

2 ἐπένθησεν ἡ Ιουδαία καὶ αἱ πύλαι αὐτῆς ἐκενώθησαν καὶ ἐσκοτώθησαν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς καὶ ἡ κραυγὴ τῆς Ιερουσαλημ ἀνέβη

3 καὶ οἱ μεγιστᾶνες αὐτῆς ἀπέστειλαν τοὺς νεωτέρους αὐτῶν ἐφ᾽ ὕδωρ ἤλθοσαν ἐπὶ τὰ φρέατα καὶ οὐχ εὕροσαν ὕδωρ καὶ ἀπέστρεψαν τὰ ἀγγεῖα αὐτῶν κενά

4 καὶ τὰ ἔργα τῆς γῆς ἐξέλιπεν ὅτι οὐκ ἦν ὑετός ᾐσχύνθησαν γεωργοί ἐπεκάλυψαν τὴν κεφαλὴν αὐτῶν

5 καὶ ἔλαφοι ἐν ἀγρῷ ἔτεκον καὶ ἐγκατέλιπον ὅτι οὐκ ἦν βοτάνη

6 ὄνοι ἄγριοι ἔστησαν ἐπὶ νάπας εἵλκυσαν ἄνεμον ἐξέλιπον οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ αὐτῶν ὅτι οὐκ ἦν χόρτος ἀπὸ λαοῦ ἀδικίας

7 εἰ αἱ ἁμαρτίαι ἡμῶν ἀντέστησαν ἡμῖν κύριε ποίησον ἡμῖν ἕνεκεν σοῦ ὅτι πολλαὶ αἱ ἁμαρτίαι ἡμῶν ἐναντίον σοῦ ὅτι σοὶ ἡμάρτομεν

8 ὑπομονὴ Ισραηλ κύριε καὶ σῴζεις ἐν καιρῷ κακῶν ἵνα τί ἐγενήθης ὡσεὶ πάροικος ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς καὶ ὡς αὐτόχθων ἐκκλίνων εἰς κατάλυμα

9 μὴ ἔσῃ ὥσπερ ἄνθρωπος ὑπνῶν ἢ ὡς ἀνὴρ οὐ δυνάμενος σῴζειν καὶ σὺ ἐν ἡμῖν εἶ κύριε καὶ τὸ ὄνομά σου ἐπικέκληται ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς μὴ ἐπιλάθῃ ἡμῶν

10 οὕτως λέγει κύριος τῷ λαῷ τούτῳ ἠγάπησαν κινεῖν πόδας αὐτῶν καὶ οὐκ ἐφείσαντο καὶ ὁ θεὸς οὐκ εὐδόκησεν ἐν αὐτοῖς νῦν μνησθήσεται τῶν ἀδικιῶν αὐτῶν

11 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρός με μὴ προσεύχου περὶ τοῦ λαοῦ τούτου εἰς ἀγαθά

12 ὅτι ἐὰν νηστεύσωσιν οὐκ εἰσακούσομαι τῆς δεήσεως αὐτῶν καὶ ἐὰν προσενέγκωσιν ὁλοκαυτώματα καὶ θυσίας οὐκ εὐδοκήσω ἐν αὐτοῖς ὅτι ἐν μαχαίρᾳ καὶ ἐν λιμῷ καὶ ἐν θανάτῳ ἐγὼ συντελέσω αὐτούς

13 καὶ εἶπα ὦ κύριε ἰδοὺ οἱ προφῆται αὐτῶν προφητεύουσιν καὶ λέγουσιν οὐκ ὄψεσθε μάχαιραν οὐδὲ λιμὸς ἔσται ἐν ὑμῖν ὅτι ἀλήθειαν καὶ εἰρήνην δώσω ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς καὶ ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ

14 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρός με ψευδῆ οἱ προφῆται προφητεύουσιν ἐπὶ τῷ ὀνόματί μου οὐκ ἀπέστειλα αὐτοὺς καὶ οὐκ ἐνετειλάμην αὐτοῖς καὶ οὐκ ἐλάλησα πρὸς αὐτούς ὅτι ὁράσεις ψευδεῖς καὶ μαντείας καὶ οἰωνίσματα καὶ προαιρέσεις καρδίας αὐτῶν αὐτοὶ προφητεύουσιν ὑμῖν

15 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει κύριος περὶ τῶν προφητῶν τῶν προφητευόντων ἐπὶ τῷ ὀνόματί μου ψευδῆ καὶ ἐγὼ οὐκ ἀπέστειλα αὐτούς οἳ λέγουσιν μάχαιρα καὶ λιμὸς οὐκ ἔσται ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ταύτης ἐν θανάτῳ νοσερῷ ἀποθανοῦνται καὶ ἐν λιμῷ συντελεσθήσονται οἱ προφῆται

16 καὶ ὁ λαός οἷς αὐτοὶ προφητεύουσιν αὐτοῖς καὶ ἔσονται ἐρριμμένοι ἐν ταῖς διόδοις Ιερουσαλημ ἀπὸ προσώπου μαχαίρας καὶ τοῦ λιμοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ὁ θάπτων αὐτούς καὶ αἱ γυναῖκες αὐτῶν καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτῶν καὶ αἱ θυγατέρες αὐτῶν καὶ ἐκχεῶ ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς τὰ κακὰ αὐτῶν

17 καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς αὐτοὺς τὸν λόγον τοῦτον καταγάγετε ἐπ᾽ ὀφθαλμοὺς ὑμῶν δάκρυα ἡμέρας καὶ νυκτός καὶ μὴ διαλιπέτωσαν ὅτι συντρίμματι συνετρίβη θυγάτηρ λαοῦ μου καὶ πληγῇ ὀδυνηρᾷ σφόδρα

18 ἐὰν ἐξέλθω εἰς τὸ πεδίον καὶ ἰδοὺ τραυματίαι μαχαίρας καὶ ἐὰν εἰσέλθω εἰς τὴν πόλιν καὶ ἰδοὺ πόνος λιμοῦ ὅτι ἱερεὺς καὶ προφήτης ἐπορεύθησαν εἰς γῆν ἣν οὐκ ᾔδεισαν

19 μὴ ἀποδοκιμάζων ἀπεδοκίμασας τὸν Ιουδαν καὶ ἀπὸ Σιων ἀπέστη ἡ ψυχή σου ἵνα τί ἔπαισας ἡμᾶς καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἡμῖν ἴασις ὑπεμείναμεν εἰς εἰρήνην καὶ οὐκ ἦν ἀγαθά εἰς καιρὸν ἰάσεως καὶ ἰδοὺ ταραχή

20 ἔγνωμεν κύριε ἁμαρτήματα ἡμῶν ἀδικίας πατέρων ἡμῶν ὅτι ἡμάρτομεν ἐναντίον σου

21 κόπασον διὰ τὸ ὄνομά σου μὴ ἀπολέσῃς θρόνον δόξης σου μνήσθητι μὴ διασκεδάσῃς τὴν διαθήκην σου τὴν μεθ᾽ ἡμῶν

22 μὴ ἔστιν ἐν εἰδώλοις τῶν ἐθνῶν ὑετίζων καὶ εἰ ὁ οὐρανὸς δώσει πλησμονὴν αὐτοῦ οὐχὶ σὺ εἶ αὐτός καὶ ὑπομενοῦμέν σε ὅτι σὺ ἐποίησας πάντα ταῦτα

1 Quod factum est verbum Domini ad Jeremiam, de sermonibus siccitatis.

2 [Luxit Judæa, et portæ ejus corruerunt,
et obscuratæ sunt in terra,
et clamor Jerusalem ascendit.

3 Majores miserunt minores suos ad aquam:
venerunt ad hauriendum.
Non invenerunt aquam:
reportaverunt vasa sua vacua.
Confusi sunt, et afflicti,
et operuerunt capita sua.

4 Propter terræ vastitatem,
quia non venit pluvia in terram,
confusi sunt agricolæ:
operuerunt capita sua.

5 Nam et cerva in agro peperit, et reliquit,
quia non erat herba.

6 Et onagri steterunt in rupibus;
traxerunt ventum quasi dracones:
defecerunt oculi eorum,
quia non erat herba.

7 Si iniquitates nostræ responderint nobis, Domine,
fac propter nomen tuum:
quoniam multæ sunt aversiones nostræ:
tibi peccavimus.

8 Exspectatio Israël,
salvator ejus in tempore tribulationis,
quare quasi colonus futurus es in terra,
et quasi viator declinans ad manendum?

9 quare futurus es velut vir vagus,
ut fortis qui non potest salvare?
Tu autem in nobis es, Domine,
et nomen tuum invocatum est super nos:
ne derelinquas nos.

10 Hæc dicit Dominus populo huic,
qui dilexit movere pedes suos,
et non quievit,
et Domino non placuit:
Nunc recordabitur iniquitatum eorum,
et visitabit peccata eorum.

11 Et dixit Dominus ad me:
Noli orare pro populo isto in bonum.

12 Cum jejunaverint,
non exaudiam preces eorum,
et si obtulerint holocautomata et victimas,
non suscipiam ea:
quoniam gladio, et fame, et peste consumam eos.]

13 Et dixi: [A, a, a, Domine Deus:
prophetæ dicunt eis:
Non videbitis gladium,
et fames non erit in vobis:
sed pacem veram dabit vobis in loco isto.]

14 Et dicit Dominus ad me: [Falso prophetæ vaticinantur in nomine meo:
non misi eos, et non præcepi eis,
neque locutus sum ad eos.
Visionem mendacem, et divinationem,
et fraudulentiam, et seductionem cordis sui,
prophetant vobis.

15 Idcirco hæc dicit Dominus
de prophetis qui prophetant in nomine meo,
quos ego non misi, dicentes:
Gladius et fames non erit in terra hac:
In gladio et fame consumentur prophetæ illi.

16 Et populi quibus prophetant
erunt projecti in viis Jerusalem
præ fame et gladio,
et non erit qui sepeliat eos:
ipsi et uxores eorum,
filii et filiæ eorum:
et effundam super eos malum suum.

17 Et dices ad eos verbum istud:
Deducant oculi mei lacrimam per noctem et diem,
et non taceant,
quoniam contritione magna
contrita est virgo filia populi mei,
plaga pessima vehementer.

18 Si egressus fuero ad agros,
ecce occisi gladio:
et si introiero in civitatem,
ecce attenuati fame.
Propheta quoque et sacerdos abierunt in terram quam ignorabant.

19 Numquid projiciens abjecisti Judam?
aut Sion abominata est anima tua?
quare ergo percussisti nos ita ut nulla sit sanitas?
Exspectavimus pacem,
et non est bonum:
et tempus curationis,
et ecce turbatio.

20 Cognovimus, Domine, impietates nostras,
iniquitates patrum nostrorum,
quia peccavimus tibi.

21 Ne des nos in opprobrium, propter nomen tuum,
neque facias nobis contumeliam solii gloriæ tuæ:
recordare, ne irritum facias fœdus tuum nobiscum.

22 Numquid sunt in sculptilibus gentium qui pluant?
aut cæli possunt dare imbres?
nonne tu es Dominus Deus noster, quem exspectavimus?
tu enim fecisti omnia hæc.]
