Jeremiah 32


1  The word1697 that834 came1961 to413 Jeremiah3414 from4480 854 the LORD3068 in the tenth6224 year8141 of Zedekiah6667 king4428 of Judah,3063 which1931 was the eighteenth8083 6240 year8141 of Nebuchadnezzar.5019

2  For then227 the king4428 of Babylon's894 army2428 besieged6696 5921 Jerusalem:3389 and Jeremiah3414 the prophet5030 was1961 shut up3607 in the court2691 of the prison,4307 which834 was in the king4428 of Judah's3063 house.1004

3  For834 Zedekiah6667 king4428 of Judah3063 had shut him up,3607 saying,559 Wherefore4069 dost thou859 prophesy,5012 and say,559 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 take3920 it;

4  And Zedekiah6667 king4428 of Judah3063 shall not3808 escape4422 out of the hand4480 3027 of the Chaldeans,3778 but3588 shall surely be delivered5414 5414 into the hand3027 of the king4428 of Babylon,894 and shall speak1696 with5973 him mouth6310 to mouth,6310 and his eyes5869 shall behold7200 853 his eyes;5869

5  And he shall lead1980 853 Zedekiah6667 to Babylon,894 and there8033 shall he be1961 until5704 I visit6485 him, saith5002 the LORD:3068 though3588 ye fight3898 with854 the Chaldeans,3778 ye shall not3808 prosper.6743

6  And Jeremiah3414 said,559 The word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559

7  Behold,2009 Hanameel2601 the son1121 of Shallum7967 thine uncle1730 shall come935 unto413 thee, saying,559 Buy7069 thee 853 my field7704 that834 is in Anathoth:6068 for3588 the right4941 of redemption1353 is thine to buy7069 it.

8  So Hanameel2601 mine uncle's1730 son1121 came935 to413 me in413 the court2691 of the prison4307 according to the word1697 of the LORD,3068 and said559 unto413 me, Buy7069 853 my field,7704 I pray thee,4994 that834 is in Anathoth,6068 which834 is in the country776 of Benjamin:1144 for3588 the right4941 of inheritance3425 is thine, and the redemption1353 is thine; buy7069 it for thyself. Then I knew3045 that3588 this1931 was the word1697 of the LORD.3068

9  And I bought7069 853 the field7704 of4480 854 Hanameel2601 my uncle's1730 son,1121 that834 was in Anathoth,6068 and weighed8254 him 853 the money,3701 even seventeen7651 6240 shekels8255 of silver.3701

10  And I subscribed3789 the evidence,5612 and sealed2856 it, and took5749 witnesses,5707 and weighed8254 him the money3701 in the balances.3976

11  So I took3947 853 the evidence5612 of the purchase,4736 both 853 that which was sealed2856 according to the law4687 and custom,2706 and that which was open:1540

12  And I gave5414 853 the evidence5612 of the purchase4736 unto413 Baruch1263 the son1121 of Neriah,5374 the son1121 of Maaseiah,4271 in the sight5869 of Hanameel2601 mine uncle's1730 son, and in the presence5869 of the witnesses5707 that subscribed3789 the book5612 of the purchase,4736 before5869 all3605 the Jews3064 that sat3427 in the court2691 of the prison.4307

13  And I charged6680 853 Baruch1263 before5869 them, saying,559

14  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 the God430 of Israel;3478 Take3947 853 these428 evidences,5612 853 this2088 evidence5612 of the purchase,4736 both which is sealed,2856 and this2088 evidence5612 which is open;1540 and put5414 them in an earthen2789 vessel,3627 that4616 they may continue5975 many7227 days.3117

15  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 the God430 of Israel;3478 Houses1004 and fields7704 and vineyards3754 shall be possessed7069 again5750 in this2063 land.776

16  Now when310 I had delivered5414 853 the evidence5612 of the purchase4736 unto413 Baruch1263 the son1121 of Neriah,5374 I prayed6419 unto413 the LORD,3068 saying,559

17  Ah162 Lord136 GOD!3069 behold,2009 thou859 hast made6213 853 the heaven8064 and the earth776 by thy great1419 power3581 and stretched out5186 arm,2220 and there is nothing3808 3605 1697 too hard6381 for4480 thee:

18  Thou showest6213 lovingkindness2617 unto thousands,505 and recompensest7999 the iniquity5771 of the fathers1 into413 the bosom2436 of their children1121 after310 them: the Great,1419 the Mighty1368 God,410 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 is his name,8034

19  Great1419 in counsel,6098 and mighty7227 in work:5950 for834 thine eyes5869 are open6491 upon5921 all3605 the ways1870 of the sons1121 of men:120 to give5414 every one376 according to his ways,1870 and according to the fruit6529 of his doings:4611

20  Which834 hast set7760 signs226 and wonders4159 in the land776 of Egypt,4714 even unto5704 this2088 day,3117 and in Israel,3478 and among other men;120 and hast made6213 thee a name,8034 as at this2088 day;3117

21  And hast brought forth3318 853 thy people5971 853 Israel3478 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt4714 with signs,226 and with wonders,4159 and with a strong2389 hand,3027 and with a stretched out5186 arm,248 and with great1419 terror;4172

22  And hast given5414 them 853 this2063 land,776 which834 thou didst swear7650 to their fathers1 to give5414 them, a land776 flowing2100 with milk2461 and honey;1706

23  And they came935 in, and possessed3423 it; but they obeyed8085 not3808 thy voice,6963 neither3808 walked1980 in thy law;8451 they have done6213 853 nothing3808 of all3605 that834 thou commandedst6680 them to do:6213 therefore thou hast caused 853 all3605 this2063 evil7451 to come upon7122 them:

24  Behold2009 the mounts,5550 they are come935 unto the city5892 to take3920 it; and the city5892 is given5414 into the hand3027 of the Chaldeans,3778 that fight3898 against5921 it, because4480 6440 of the sword,2719 and of the famine,7458 and of the pestilence:1698 and what834 thou hast spoken1696 is come to pass;1961 and, behold,2009 thou seest7200 it.

25  And thou859 hast said559 unto413 me, O Lord136 GOD,3069 Buy7069 thee the field7704 for money,3701 and take5749 witnesses;5707 for the city5892 is given5414 into the hand3027 of the Chaldeans.3778

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

27  Behold,2009 I589 am the LORD,3068 the God430 of all3605 flesh:1320 is there any3605 thing1697 too hard6381 for4480 me?

28  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the LORD;3068 Behold,2009 I will give5414 853 this2063 city5892 into the hand3027 of the Chaldeans,3778 and into the hand3027 of Nebuchadnezzar5019 king4428 of Babylon,894 and he shall take3920 it:

29  And the Chaldeans,3778 that fight3898 against5921 this2063 city,5892 shall come935 and set3341 fire784 on 853 this2063 city,5892 and burn8313 it with the houses,1004 upon5921 whose834 roofs1406 they have offered incense6999 unto Baal,1168 and poured out5258 drink offerings5262 unto other312 gods,430 to4616 provoke me to anger.3707

30  For3588 the children1121 of Israel3478 and the children1121 of Judah3063 have1961 only389 done6213 evil7451 before5869 me from their youth:4480 5271 for3588 the children1121 of Israel3478 have only389 provoked me to anger3707 853 with the work4639 of their hands,3027 saith5002 the LORD.3068

31  For3588 5921 this2063 city5892 hath been1961 to me as a provocation5921 of mine anger639 and of5921 my fury2534 from4480 the day3117 that834 they built1129 it even unto5704 this2088 day;3117 that I should remove5493 it from before4480 5921 my face,6440

32  Because5921 of all3605 the evil7451 of the children1121 of Israel3478 and of the children1121 of Judah,3063 which834 they have done6213 to provoke me to anger,3707 they,1992 their kings,4428 their princes,8269 their priests,3548 and their prophets,5030 and the men376 of Judah,3063 and the inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem.3389

33  And they have turned6437 unto413 me the back,6203 and not3808 the face:6440 though I taught3925 them, rising up early7925 and teaching3925 them, yet they have not369 hearkened8085 to receive3947 instruction.4148

34  But they set7760 their abominations8251 in the house,1004 which834 is called7121 by5921 my name,8034 to defile2930 it.

35  And they built1129 853 the high places1116 of Baal,1168 which834 are in the valley1516 of the son1121 of Hinnom,2011 to cause 853 their sons1121 and their daughters1323 to pass through5674 the fire unto Molech;4432 which834 I commanded6680 them not,3808 neither3808 came5927 it into5921 my mind,3820 that they should do6213 this2063 abomination,8441 to4616 cause 853 Judah3063 to sin.2398

36  And now6258 therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 the God430 of Israel,3478 concerning413 this2063 city,5892 whereof834 ye859 say,559 It shall be delivered5414 into the hand3027 of the king4428 of Babylon894 by the sword,2719 and by the famine,7458 and by the pestilence;1698

37  Behold,2009 I will gather6908 them out of all4480 3605 countries,776 whither834 8033 I have driven5080 them in mine anger,639 and in my fury,2534 and in great1419 wrath;7110 and I will bring them again7725 unto413 this2088 place,4725 and I will cause them to dwell3427 safely:983

38  And they shall be1961 my people,5971 and I589 will be1961 their God:430

39  And I will give5414 them one259 heart,3820 and one259 way,1870 that they may fear3372 me forever,3605 3117 for the good2896 of them, and of their children1121 after310 them:

40  And I will make3772 an everlasting5769 covenant1285 with them, that834 I will not3808 turn away7725 from4480 310 them, to do them good;3190 853 but I will put5414 my fear3374 in their hearts,3824 that they shall not1115 depart5493 from4480 5921 me.

41  Yea, I will rejoice7797 over5921 them to do them good,2895 853 and I will plant5193 them in this2063 land776 assuredly571 with my whole3605 heart3820 and with my whole3605 soul.5315

42  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD;3068 Like as834 I have brought935 853 all3605 this2063 great1419 evil7451 upon413 this2088 people,5971 so3651 will I595 bring935 upon5921 them 853 all3605 the good2896 that834 I595 have promised1696 5921 them.

43  And fields7704 shall be bought7069 in this2063 land,776 whereof834 ye859 say,559 It1931 is desolate8077 without4480 369 man120 or beast;929 it is given5414 into the hand3027 of the Chaldeans.3778

44  Men shall buy7069 fields7704 for money,3701 and subscribe3789 evidences,5612 and seal2856 them, and take5749 witnesses5707 in the land776 of Benjamin,1144 and in the places about5439 Jerusalem,3389 and in the cities5892 of Judah,3063 and in the cities5892 of the mountains,2022 and in the cities5892 of the valley,8219 and in the cities5892 of the south:5045 for3588 I will cause 853 their captivity7622 to return,7725 saith5002 the LORD.3068


13 ὅσα ἐπροφήτευσεν Ιερεμιας ἐπὶ πάντα τὰ ἔθνη

15 οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ λαβὲ τὸ ποτήριον τοῦ οἴνου τοῦ ἀκράτου τούτου ἐκ χειρός μου καὶ ποτιεῖς πάντα τὰ ἔθνη πρὸς ἃ ἐγὼ ἀποστέλλω σε πρὸς αὐτούς

16 καὶ πίονται καὶ ἐξεμοῦνται καὶ μανήσονται ἀπὸ προσώπου τῆς μαχαίρας ἧς ἐγὼ ἀποστέλλω ἀνὰ μέσον αὐτῶν

17 καὶ ἔλαβον τὸ ποτήριον ἐκ χειρὸς κυρίου καὶ ἐπότισα τὰ ἔθνη πρὸς ἃ ἀπέστειλέν με κύριος ἐπ᾽ αὐτά

18 τὴν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ τὰς πόλεις Ιουδα καὶ βασιλεῖς Ιουδα καὶ ἄρχοντας αὐτοῦ τοῦ θεῖναι αὐτὰς εἰς ἐρήμωσιν καὶ εἰς ἄβατον καὶ εἰς συριγμὸν

19 καὶ τὸν Φαραω βασιλέα Αἰγύπτου καὶ τοὺς παῖδας αὐτοῦ καὶ τοὺς μεγιστᾶνας αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντα τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ

20 καὶ πάντας τοὺς συμμίκτους αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντας τοὺς βασιλεῖς ἀλλοφύλων τὴν Ἀσκαλῶνα καὶ τὴν Γάζαν καὶ τὴν Ακκαρων καὶ τὸ ἐπίλοιπον Ἀζώτου

21 καὶ τὴν Ιδουμαίαν καὶ τὴν Μωαβῖτιν καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς Αμμων

22 καὶ πάντας βασιλεῖς Τύρου καὶ βασιλεῖς Σιδῶνος καὶ βασιλεῖς τοὺς ἐν τῷ πέραν τῆς θαλάσσης

23 καὶ τὴν Δαιδαν καὶ τὴν Θαιμαν καὶ τὴν Ρως καὶ πᾶν περικεκαρμένον κατὰ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ

24 καὶ πάντας τοὺς συμμίκτους τοὺς καταλύοντας ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ

25 καὶ πάντας βασιλεῖς Αιλαμ καὶ πάντας βασιλεῖς Περσῶν

26 καὶ πάντας βασιλεῖς ἀπὸ ἀπηλιώτου τοὺς πόρρω καὶ τοὺς ἐγγύς ἕκαστον πρὸς τὸν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ πάσας τὰς βασιλείας τὰς ἐπὶ προσώπου τῆς γῆς

27 καὶ ἐρεῖς αὐτοῖς οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος παντοκράτωρ πίετε καὶ μεθύσθητε καὶ ἐξεμέσατε καὶ πεσεῖσθε καὶ οὐ μὴ ἀναστῆτε ἀπὸ προσώπου τῆς μαχαίρας ἧς ἐγὼ ἀποστέλλω ἀνὰ μέσον ὑμῶν

28 καὶ ἔσται ὅταν μὴ βούλωνται δέξασθαι τὸ ποτήριον ἐκ τῆς χειρός σου ὥστε πιεῖν καὶ ἐρεῖς οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος πιόντες πίεσθε

29 ὅτι ἐν πόλει ἐν ᾗ ὠνομάσθη τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐπ᾽ αὐτήν ἐγὼ ἄρχομαι κακῶσαι καὶ ὑμεῖς καθάρσει οὐ μὴ καθαρισθῆτε ὅτι μάχαιραν ἐγὼ καλῶ ἐπὶ τοὺς καθημένους ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς

30 καὶ σὺ προφητεύσεις ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς τοὺς λόγους τούτους καὶ ἐρεῖς κύριος ἀφ᾽ ὑψηλοῦ χρηματιεῖ ἀπὸ τοῦ ἁγίου αὐτοῦ δώσει φωνὴν αὐτοῦ λόγον χρηματιεῖ ἐπὶ τοῦ τόπου αὐτοῦ καὶ αιδαδ ὥσπερ τρυγῶντες ἀποκριθήσονται καὶ ἐπὶ τοὺς καθημένους ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν

31 ἥκει ὄλεθρος ἐπὶ μέρος τῆς γῆς ὅτι κρίσις τῷ κυρίῳ ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν κρίνεται αὐτὸς πρὸς πᾶσαν σάρκα οἱ δὲ ἀσεβεῖς ἐδόθησαν εἰς μάχαιραν λέγει κύριος

32 οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ἰδοὺ κακὰ ἔρχεται ἀπὸ ἔθνους ἐπὶ ἔθνος καὶ λαῖλαψ μεγάλη ἐκπορεύεται ἀπ᾽ ἐσχάτου τῆς γῆς

33 καὶ ἔσονται τραυματίαι ὑπὸ κυρίου ἐν ἡμέρᾳ κυρίου ἐκ μέρους τῆς γῆς καὶ ἕως εἰς μέρος τῆς γῆς οὐ μὴ κατορυγῶσιν εἰς κόπρια ἐπὶ προσώπου τῆς γῆς ἔσονται

34 ἀλαλάξατε ποιμένες καὶ κεκράξατε καὶ κόπτεσθε οἱ κριοὶ τῶν προβάτων ὅτι ἐπληρώθησαν αἱ ἡμέραι ὑμῶν εἰς σφαγήν καὶ πεσεῖσθε ὥσπερ οἱ κριοὶ οἱ ἐκλεκτοί

35 καὶ ἀπολεῖται φυγὴ ἀπὸ τῶν ποιμένων καὶ σωτηρία ἀπὸ τῶν κριῶν τῶν προβάτων

36 φωνὴ κραυγῆς τῶν ποιμένων καὶ ἀλαλαγμὸς τῶν προβάτων καὶ τῶν κριῶν ὅτι ὠλέθρευσεν κύριος τὰ βοσκήματα αὐτῶν

37 καὶ παύσεται τὰ κατάλοιπα τῆς εἰρήνης ἀπὸ προσώπου ὀργῆς θυμοῦ μου

38 ἐγκατέλιπεν ὥσπερ λέων κατάλυμα αὐτοῦ ὅτι ἐγενήθη ἡ γῆ αὐτῶν εἰς ἄβατον ἀπὸ προσώπου τῆς μαχαίρας τῆς μεγάλης

1 Verbum quod factum est ad Jeremiam a Domino, in anno decimo Sedeciæ regis Juda, ipse est annus decimusoctavus Nabuchodonosor.

2 Tunc exercitus regis Babylonis obsidebat Jerusalem, et Jeremias propheta erat clausus in atrio carceris qui erat in domo regis Juda.

3 Clauserat enim eum Sedecias rex Juda, dicens: Quare vaticinaris, dicens: Hæc dicit Dominus: Ecce ego dabo civitatem istam in manus regis Babylonis, et capiet eam:

4 et Sedecias rex Juda non effugiet de manu Chaldæorum, sed tradetur in manus regis Babylonis: et loquetur os ejus cum ore illius, et oculi ejus oculos illius videbunt:

5 et in Babylonem ducet Sedeciam, et ibi erit donec visitem eum, ait Dominus: si autem dimicaveritis adversum Chaldæos, nihil prosperum habebitis?

6 Et dixit Jeremias: Factum est verbum Domini ad me, dicens:

7 Ecce Hanameel filius Sellum, patruelis tuus, veniet ad te, dicens: Eme tibi agrum meum qui est in Anathoth, tibi enim competit ex propinquitate ut emas.

8 Et venit ad me Hanameel filius patrui mei, secundum verbum Domini, ad vestibulum carceris, et ait ad me: Posside agrum meum qui est in Anathoth, in terra Benjamin, quia tibi competit hæreditas, et tu propinquus es ut possideas. Intellexi autem quod verbum Domini esset:

9 et emi agrum ab Hanameel filio patrui mei, qui est in Anathoth, et appendi ei argentum: septem stateres, et decem argenteos.

10 Et scripsi in libro, et signavi, et adhibui testes, et appendi argentum in statera.

11 Et accepi librum possessionis signatum, et stipulationes, et rata, et signa forinsecus:

12 et dedi librum possessionis Baruch filio Neri filii Maasiæ, in oculis Hanameel patruelis mei, in oculis testium qui scripti erant in libro emptionis, et in oculis omnium Judæorum qui sedebant in atrio carceris.

13 Et præcepi Baruch coram eis, dicens:

14 Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël: Sume libros istos, librum emptionis hunc signatum, et librum hunc qui apertus est, et pone illos in vase fictili, ut permanere possint diebus multis:

15 hæc enim dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël: Adhuc possidebuntur domus, et agri, et vineæ in terra ista.

16 Et oravi ad Dominum, postquam tradidi librum possessionis Baruch filio Neri, dicens:

17 [Heu! heu! heu! Domine Deus,
ecce tu fecisti cælum et terram
in fortitudine tua magna, et in brachio tuo extento:
non erit tibi difficile omne verbum:

18 qui facis misericordiam in millibus,
et reddis iniquitatem patrum in sinum filiorum eorum post eos:
fortissime, magne, et potens,
Dominus exercituum nomen tibi.

19 Magnus consilio, et incomprehensibilis cogitatu:
cujus oculi aperti sunt super omnes vias filiorum Adam,
ut reddas unicuique secundum vias suas,
et secundum fructum adinventionum ejus.

20 Qui posuisti signa et portenta
in terra Ægypti usque ad diem hanc,
et in Israël, et in hominibus,
et fecisti tibi nomen sicut est dies hæc.

21 Et eduxisti populum tuum Israël de terra Ægypti,
in signis et in portentis,
et in manu robusta et in brachio extento,
et in terrore magno:

22 et dedisti eis terram hanc,
quam jurasti patribus eorum ut dares eis,
terram fluentem lacte et melle.

23 Et ingressi sunt, et possederunt eam,
et non obedierunt voci tuæ,
et in lege tua non ambulaverunt:
omnia quæ mandasti eis ut facerent non fecerunt,
et evenerunt eis omnia mala hæc.

24 Ecce munitiones exstructæ sunt adversum civitatem ut capiatur,
et urbs data est in manus Chaldæorum
qui præliantur adversus eam,
a facie gladii, et famis, et pestilentiæ:
et quæcumque locutus es, acciderunt,
ut tu ipse cernis.

25 Et tu dicis mihi, Domine Deus:
Eme agrum argento, et adhibe testes,
cum urbs data sit in manus Chaldæorum?]

26 Et factum est verbum Domini ad Jeremiam, dicens:

27 [Ecce ego Dominus Deus universæ carnis:
numquid mihi difficile erit omne verbum?

28 Propterea hæc dicit Dominus:
Ecce ego tradam civitatem istam in manus Chaldæorum,
et in manus regis Babylonis,
et capient eam.

29 Et venient Chaldæi præliantes adversum urbem hanc,
et succendent eam igni, et comburent eam,
et domos in quarum domatibus sacrificabant Baal,
et libabant diis alienis libamina ad irritandum me.

30 Erant enim filii Israël et filii Juda
jugiter facientes malum in oculis meis ab adolescentia sua:
filii Israël, qui usque nunc exacerbant me
in opere manuum suarum, dicit Dominus.

31 Quia in furore et in indignatione mea facta est mihi civitas hæc,
a die qua ædificaverunt eam
usque ad diem istam qua auferetur de conspectu meo,

32 propter malitiam filiorum Israël et filiorum Juda,
quam fecerunt ad iracundiam me provocantes,
ipsi et reges eorum,
principes eorum, et sacerdotes eorum, et prophetæ eorum,
viri Juda et habitatores Jerusalem.

33 Et verterunt ad me terga, et non facies,
cum docerem eos diluculo et erudirem,
et nollent audire, ut acciperent disciplinam.

34 Et posuerunt idola sua in domo in qua invocatum est nomen meum,
ut polluerent eam.

35 Et ædificaverunt excelsa Baal
quæ sunt in valle filii Ennom,
ut initiarent filios suos et filias suas Moloch,
quod non mandavi eis,
nec ascendit in cor meum ut facerent abominationem hanc:
et in peccatum deducerent Judam.

36 Et nunc propter ista,
hæc dicit Dominus Deus Israël ad civitatem hanc,
de qua vos dicitis quod tradetur in manus regis Babylonis,
in gladio, et in fame, et in peste:

37 Ecce ego congregabo eos de universis terris ad quas ejeci eos
in furore meo, et in ira mea, et in indignatione grandi:
et reducam eos ad locum istum,
et habitare eos faciam confidenter:

38 et erunt mihi in populum,
et ego ero eis in Deum.

39 Et dabo eis cor unum, et viam unam,
ut timeant me universis diebus,
et bene sit eis, et filiis eorum post eos.

40 Et feriam eis pactum sempiternum,
et non desinam eis benefacere:
et timorem meum dabo in corde eorum,
ut non recedant a me.

41 Et lætabor super eis, cum bene eis fecero:
et plantabo eos in terra ista in veritate,
in toto corde meo et in tota anima mea.

42 Quia hæc dicit Dominus:
Sicut adduxi super populum istum omne malum hoc grande,
sic adducam super eos
omne bonum quod ego loquor ad eos.

43 Et possidebuntur agri in terra ista,
de qua vos dicitis quod deserta sit,
eo quod non remanserit homo et jumentum,
et data sit in manus Chaldæorum.

44 Agri ementur pecunia, et scribentur in libro,
et imprimetur signum, et testis adhibebitur,
in terra Benjamin et in circuitu Jerusalem,
in civitatibus Juda, et in civitatibus montanis,
et in civitatibus campestribus, et in civitatibus quæ ad austrum sunt,
quia convertam captivitatem eorum, ait Dominus.]
