Jeremiah 29


1  Now these428 are the words1697 of the letter5612 that834 Jeremiah3414 the prophet5030 sent7971 from Jerusalem4480 3389 unto413 the residue3499 of the elders2205 which were carried away captives,1473 and to413 the priests,3548 and to413 the prophets,5030 and to413 all3605 the people5971 whom834 Nebuchadnezzar5019 had carried away captive1540 from Jerusalem4480 3389 to Babylon;894

2  (After that310 Jeconiah3204 the king,4428 and the queen,1377 and the eunuchs,5631 the princes8269 of Judah3063 and Jerusalem,3389 and the carpenters,2796 and the smiths,4525 were departed3318 from Jerusalem;)4480 3389

3  By the hand3027 of Elasah501 the son1121 of Shaphan,8227 and Gemariah1587 the son1121 of Hilkiah,2518 (whom834 Zedekiah6667 king4428 of Judah3063 sent7971 unto Babylon894 to413 Nebuchadnezzar5019 king4428 of Babylon)894 saying,559

4  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 the God430 of Israel,3478 unto all3605 that are carried away captives,1473 whom834 I have caused to be carried away1540 from Jerusalem4480 3389 unto Babylon;894

5  Build1129 ye houses,1004 and dwell3427 in them; and plant5193 gardens,1593 and eat398 853 the fruit6529 of them;

6  Take3947 ye wives,802 and beget3205 sons1121 and daughters;1323 and take3947 wives802 for your sons,1121 and give5414 your daughters1323 to husbands,376 that they may bear3205 sons1121 and daughters;1323 that ye may be increased7235 there,8033 and not408 diminished.4591

7  And seek1875 853 the peace7965 of the city5892 whither834 8033 I have caused you to be carried away captives,1540 and pray6419 unto413 the LORD3068 for1157 it: for3588 in the peace7965 thereof shall ye have1961 peace.7965

8  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 the God430 of Israel;3478 Let not408 your prophets5030 and your diviners,7080 that834 be in the midst7130 of you, deceive5377 you, neither408 hearken8085 to413 your dreams2472 which834 ye859 cause to be dreamed.2492

9  For3588 they1992 prophesy5012 falsely8267 unto you in my name:8034 I have not3808 sent7971 them, saith5002 the LORD.3068

10  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 That3588 after6310 seventy7657 years8141 be accomplished4390 at Babylon894 I will visit6485 you, and perform6965 853 my good2896 word1697 toward5921 you, in causing you to return7725 853 to413 this2088 place.4725

11  For3588 I595 know3045 853 the thoughts4284 that834 I595 think2803 toward5921 you, saith5002 the LORD,3068 thoughts4284 of peace,7965 and not3808 of evil,7451 to give5414 you an expected8615 end.319

12  Then shall ye call upon7121 me, and ye shall go1980 and pray6419 unto413 me, and I will hearken8085 unto413 you.

13  And ye shall seek1245 me, and find4672 me, when3588 ye shall search for1875 me with all3605 your heart.3824

14  And I will be found4672 of you, saith5002 the LORD:3068 and I will turn away7725 853 your captivity,7622 and I will gather6908 you from all4480 3605 the nations,1471 and from all4480 3605 the places4725 whither834 8033 I have driven5080 you, saith5002 the LORD;3068 and I will bring you again7725 853 into413 the place4725 whence834 4480 8033 I caused you to be carried away captive.1540

15  Because3588 ye have said,559 The LORD3068 hath raised us up6965 prophets5030 in Babylon;894

16  Know that3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of413 the king4428 that sitteth3427 upon413 the throne3678 of David,1732 and of413 all3605 the people5971 that dwelleth3427 in this2063 city,5892 and of your brethren251 that834 are not3808 gone forth3318 with854 you into captivity;1473

17  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts;6635 Behold,2009 I will send7971 upon them 853 the sword,2719 853 the famine,7458 and the pestilence,1698 and will make5414 them like vile8182 figs,8384 that834 cannot3808 be eaten,398 they are so evil.4480 7455

18  And I will persecute7291 310 them with the sword,2719 with the famine,7458 and with the pestilence,1698 and will deliver5414 them to be removed2189 to all3605 the kingdoms4467 of the earth,776 to be a curse,423 and an astonishment,8047 and a hissing,8322 and a reproach,2781 among all3605 the nations1471 whither834 8033 I have driven5080 them:

19  Because8478 834 they have not3808 hearkened8085 to413 my words,1697 saith5002 the LORD,3068 which834 I sent7971 unto413 them by 853 my servants5650 the prophets,5030 rising up early7925 and sending7971 them; but ye would not3808 hear,8085 saith5002 the LORD.3068

20  Hear8085 ye859 therefore the word1697 of the LORD,3068 all3605 ye of the captivity,1473 whom834 I have sent7971 from Jerusalem4480 3389 to Babylon:894

21  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 the God430 of Israel,3478 of413 Ahab256 the son1121 of Kolaiah,6964 and of413 Zedekiah6667 the son1121 of Maaseiah,4641 which prophesy5012 a lie8267 unto you in my name;8034 Behold,2009 I will deliver5414 them into the hand3027 of Nebuchadnezzar5019 king4428 of Babylon;894 and he shall slay5221 them before your eyes;5869

22  And of4480 them shall be taken up3947 a curse7045 by all3605 the captivity1546 of Judah3063 which834 are in Babylon,894 saying,559 The LORD3068 make7760 thee like Zedekiah6667 and like Ahab,256 whom834 the king4428 of Babylon894 roasted7033 in the fire;784

23  Because3282 834 they have committed6213 villainy5039 in Israel,3478 and have committed adultery5003 with854 their neighbors'7453 wives,802 and have spoken1696 lying8267 words1697 in my name,8034 which834 I have not3808 commanded6680 them; even I595 know,3045 and am a witness,5707 saith5002 the LORD.3068

24  Thus shalt thou also speak559 to413 Shemaiah8098 the Nehelamite,5161 saying,559

25  Thus3541 speaketh559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 the God430 of Israel,3478 saying,559 Because3282 834 thou859 hast sent7971 letters5612 in thy name8034 unto413 all3605 the people5971 that834 are at Jerusalem,3389 and to413 Zephaniah6846 the son1121 of Maaseiah4641 the priest,3548 and to413 all3605 the priests,3548 saying,559

26  The LORD3068 hath made5414 thee priest3548 in the stead of8478 Jehoiada3077 the priest,3548 that ye should be1961 officers6496 in the house1004 of the LORD,3068 for every3605 man376 that is mad,7696 and maketh himself a prophet,5012 that thou shouldest put5414 him in413 prison,4115 and in413 the stocks.6729

27  Now6258 therefore why4100 hast thou not3808 reproved1605 Jeremiah3414 of Anathoth,6069 which maketh himself a prophet5012 to you?

28  For3588 therefore5921 3651 he sent7971 unto413 us in Babylon,894 saying,559 This1931 captivity is long:752 build1129 ye houses,1004 and dwell3427 in them; and plant5193 gardens,1593 and eat398 853 the fruit6529 of them.

29  And Zephaniah6846 the priest3548 read7121 853 this2088 letter5612 in the ears241 of Jeremiah3414 the prophet.5030

30  Then came1961 the word1697 of the LORD3068 unto413 Jeremiah,3414 saying,559

31  Send7971 to5921 all3605 them of the captivity,1473 saying,559 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 concerning413 Shemaiah8098 the Nehelamite;5161 Because3283 834 that Shemaiah8098 hath prophesied5012 unto you, and I589 sent7971 him not,3808 and he caused you to trust982 853 in5921 a lie:8267

32  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the LORD;3068 Behold,2009 I will punish6485 5921 Shemaiah8098 the Nehelamite,5161 and his seed:2233 he shall not3808 have1961 a man376 to dwell3427 among8432 this2088 people;5971 neither3808 shall he behold7200 the good2896 that834 I589 will do6213 for my people,5971 saith5002 the LORD;3068 because3588 he hath taught1696 rebellion5627 against5921 the LORD.3068


1 ἐπὶ τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους

2 τάδε λέγει κύριος ἰδοὺ ὕδατα ἀναβαίνει ἀπὸ βορρᾶ καὶ ἔσται εἰς χειμάρρουν κατακλύζοντα καὶ κατακλύσει γῆν καὶ τὸ πλήρωμα αὐτῆς πόλιν καὶ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐν αὐτῇ καὶ κεκράξονται οἱ ἄνθρωποι καὶ ἀλαλάξουσιν ἅπαντες οἱ κατοικοῦντες τὴν γῆν

4 ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ἐρχομένῃ τοῦ ἀπολέσαι πάντας τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους καὶ ἀφανιῶ τὴν Τύρον καὶ τὴν Σιδῶνα καὶ πάντας τοὺς καταλοίπους τῆς βοηθείας αὐτῶν ὅτι ἐξολεθρεύσει κύριος τοὺς καταλοίπους τῶν νήσων

5 ἥκει φαλάκρωμα ἐπὶ Γάζαν ἀπερρίφη Ἀσκαλὼν καὶ οἱ κατάλοιποι Ενακιμ ἕως τίνος κόψεις

6 ἡ μάχαιρα τοῦ κυρίου ἕως τίνος οὐχ ἡσυχάσεις ἀποκατάστηθι εἰς τὸν κολεόν σου ἀνάπαυσαι καὶ ἐπάρθητι

7 πῶς ἡσυχάσει καὶ κύριος ἐνετείλατο αὐτῇ ἐπὶ τὴν Ἀσκαλῶνα καὶ ἐπὶ τὰς παραθαλασσίους ἐπὶ τὰς καταλοίπους ἐπεγερθῆναι

1 Et hæc sunt verba libri quem misit Jeremias propheta de Jerusalem ad reliquias seniorum transmigrationis, et ad sacerdotes, et ad prophetas, et ad omnem populum quem traduxerat Nabuchodonosor de Jerusalem in Babylonem,

2 postquam egressus est Jechonias rex, et domina, et eunuchi, et principes Juda et Jerusalem, et faber et inclusor, de Jerusalem,

3 in manu Elasa filii Saphan, et Gamariæ filii Helciæ, quos misit Sedecias rex Juda ad Nabuchodonosor regem Babylonis in Babylonem, dicens:

4 Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël, omni transmigrationi quam transtuli de Jerusalem in Babylonem:

5 Ædificate domos, et habitate: et plantate hortos, et comedite fructum eorum.

6 Accipite uxores, et generate filios et filias: et date filiis vestris uxores, et filias vestras date viris, et pariant filios et filias: et multiplicamini ibi, et nolite esse pauci numero.

7 Et quærite pacem civitatis ad quam transmigrare vos feci, et orate pro ea ad Dominum, quia in pace illius erit pax vobis.

8 Hæc enim dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël: Non vos seducant prophetæ vestri qui sunt in medio vestrum, et divini vestri, et ne attendatis ad somnia vestra quæ vos somniatis:

9 quia falso ipsi prophetant vobis in nomine meo, et non misi eos, dicit Dominus.

10 Quia hæc dicit Dominus: Cum cœperint impleri in Babylone septuaginta anni, visitabo vos, et suscitabo super vos verbum meum bonum, ut reducam vos ad locum istum.

11 Ego enim scio cogitationes quas ego cogito super vos, ait Dominus, cogitationes pacis et non afflictionis, ut dem vobis finem et patientiam.

12 Et invocabitis me, et ibitis: et orabitis me, et ego exaudiam vos.

13 Quæretis me, et invenietis, cum quæsieritis me in toto corde vestro.

14 Et inveniar a vobis, ait Dominus: et reducam captivitatem vestram, et congregabo vos de universis gentibus et de cunctis locis ad quæ expuli vos, dicit Dominus, et reverti vos faciam de loco ad quem transmigrare vos feci.

15 Quia dixistis: Suscitavit nobis Dominus prophetas in Babylone:

16 quia hæc dicit Dominus ad regem qui sedet super solium David, et ad omnem populum habitatorem urbis hujus, ad fratres vestros qui non sunt egressi vobiscum in transmigrationem:

17 hæc dicit Dominus exercituum: Ecce mittam in eos gladium, et famem, et pestem: et ponam eos quasi ficus malas, quæ comedi non possunt eo quod pessimæ sint:

18 et persequar eos in gladio, et in fame, et in pestilentia: et dabo eos in vexationem universis regnis terræ: in maledictionem, et in stuporem, et in sibilum, et in opprobrium cunctis gentibus ad quas ego ejeci eos,

19 eo quod non audierint verba mea, dicit Dominus, quæ misit ad eos per servos meos prophetas, de nocte consurgens et mittens: et non audistis, dicit Dominus.

20 Vos ergo audite verbum Domini, omnis transmigratio quam emisi de Jerusalem in Babylonem.

21 Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël, ad Achab filium Coliæ, et ad Sedeciam filium Maasiæ, qui prophetant vobis in nomine meo mendaciter: Ecce ego tradam eos in manus Nabuchodonosor regis Babylonis, et percutiet eos in oculis vestris:

22 et assumetur ex eis maledictio omni transmigrationi Juda quæ est in Babylone, dicentium: Ponat te Dominus sicut Sedeciam et sicut Achab, quos frixit rex Babylonis in igne:

23 pro eo quod fecerint stultitiam in Israël, et mœchati sunt in uxores amicorum suorum, et locuti sunt verbum in nomine meo mendaciter, quod non mandavi eis. Ego sum judex et testis, dicit Dominus.

24 Et ad Semeiam Nehelamiten dices:

25 Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël: Pro eo quod misisti in nomine tuo libros ad omnem populum qui est in Jerusalem, et ad Sophoniam filium Maasiæ sacerdotem, et ad universos sacerdotes, dicens:

26 Dominus dedit te sacerdotem pro Jojade sacerdote, ut sis dux in domo Domini, super omnem virum arreptitium et prophetantem, ut mittas eum in nervum et in carcerem:

27 et nunc quare non increpasti Jeremiam Anathothiten, qui prophetat vobis?

28 Quia super hoc misit in Babylonem ad nos, dicens: Longum est: ædificate domos, et habitate: et plantate hortos, et comedite fructus eorum.

29 Legit ergo Sophonias sacerdos librum istum in auribus Jeremiæ prophetæ.

30 Et factum est verbum Domini ad Jeremiam, dicens:

31 Mitte ad omnem transmigrationem, dicens: Hæc dicit Dominus ad Semeiam Nehelamiten: Pro eo quod prophetavit vobis Semeias, et ego non misi eum, et fecit vos confidere in mendacio,

32 idcirco hæc dicit Dominus: Ecce ego visitabo super Semeiam Nehelamiten, et super semen ejus: non erit ei vir sedens in medio populi hujus, et non videbit bonum quod ego faciam populo meo, ait Dominus, quia prævaricationem locutus est adversus Dominum.
