Jeremiah 36


1  And it came to pass1961 in the fourth7243 year8141 of Jehoiakim3079 the son1121 of Josiah2977 king4428 of Judah,3063 that this2088 word1697 came1961 unto413 Jeremiah3414 from4480 854 the LORD,3068 saying,559

2  Take3947 thee a roll4039 of a book,5612 and write3789 therein413 853 all3605 the words1697 that834 I have spoken1696 unto413 thee against5921 Israel,3478 and against5921 Judah,3063 and against5921 all3605 the nations,1471 from the day4480 3117 I spoke1696 unto413 thee, from the days4480 3117 of Josiah,2977 even unto5704 this2088 day.3117

3  It may be that194 the house1004 of Judah3063 will hear8085 853 all3605 the evil7451 which834 I595 purpose2803 to do6213 unto them; that4616 they may return7725 every man376 from his evil7451 way;4480 1870 that I may forgive5545 their iniquity5771 and their sin.2403

4  Then Jeremiah3414 called7121 853 Baruch1263 the son1121 of Neriah:5374 and Baruch1263 wrote3789 from the mouth4480 6310 of Jeremiah3414 853 all3605 the words1697 of the LORD,3068 which834 he had spoken1696 unto413 him, upon5921 a roll4039 of a book.5612

5  And Jeremiah3414 commanded6680 853 Baruch,1263 saying,559 I589 am shut up;6113 I cannot3201 3808 go935 into the house1004 of the LORD:3068

6  Therefore go935 thou,859 and read7121 in the roll,4039 which834 thou hast written3789 from my mouth,4480 6310 853 the words1697 of the LORD3068 in the ears241 of the people5971 in the LORD's3068 house1004 upon the fasting6685 day:3117 and also1571 thou shalt read7121 them in the ears241 of all3605 Judah3063 that come935 out of their cities.4480 5892

7  It may be194 they will present5307 their supplication8467 before6440 the LORD,3068 and will return7725 every one376 from his evil7451 way:4480 1870 for3588 great1419 is the anger639 and the fury2534 that834 the LORD3068 hath pronounced1696 against413 this2088 people.5971

8  And Baruch1263 the son1121 of Neriah5374 did6213 according to all3605 that834 Jeremiah3414 the prophet5030 commanded6680 him, reading7121 in the book5612 the words1697 of the LORD3068 in the LORD's3068 house.1004

9  And it came to pass1961 in the fifth2549 year8141 of Jehoiakim3079 the son1121 of Josiah2977 king4428 of Judah,3063 in the ninth8671 month,2320 that they proclaimed7121 a fast6685 before6440 the LORD3068 to all3605 the people5971 in Jerusalem,3389 and to all3605 the people5971 that came935 from the cities4480 5892 of Judah3063 unto Jerusalem.3389

10  Then read7121 Baruch1263 in the book5612 853 the words1697 of Jeremiah3414 in the house1004 of the LORD,3068 in the chamber3957 of Gemariah1587 the son1121 of Shaphan8227 the scribe,5608 in the higher5945 court,2691 at the entry6607 of the new2319 gate8179 of the LORD's3068 house,1004 in the ears241 of all3605 the people.5971

11  When Michaiah4321 the son1121 of Gemariah,1587 the son1121 of Shaphan,8227 had heard8085 out of4480 5921 the book5612 853 all3605 the words1697 of the LORD,3068

12  Then he went down3381 into5921 the king's4428 house,1004 into5921 the scribe's5608 chamber:3957 and, lo,2009 all3605 the princes8269 sat3427 there,8033 even Elishama476 the scribe,5608 and Delaiah1806 the son1121 of Shemaiah,8098 and Elnathan494 the son1121 of Achbor,5907 and Gemariah1587 the son1121 of Shaphan,8227 and Zedekiah6667 the son1121 of Hananiah,2608 and all3605 the princes.8269

13  Then Michaiah4321 declared5046 unto them 853 all3605 the words1697 that834 he had heard,8085 when Baruch1263 read7121 the book5612 in the ears241 of the people.5971

14  Therefore all3605 the princes8269 sent7971 853 Jehudi3065 the son1121 of Nethaniah,5418 the son1121 of Shelemiah,8018 the son1121 of Cushi,3570 unto413 Baruch,1263 saying,559 Take3947 in thine hand3027 the roll4039 wherein834 thou hast read7121 in the ears241 of the people,5971 and come.1980 So Baruch1263 the son1121 of Neriah5374 took3947 853 the roll4039 in his hand,3027 and came935 unto413 them.

15  And they said559 unto413 him, Sit down3427 now,4994 and read7121 it in our ears.241 So Baruch1263 read7121 it in their ears.241

16  Now it came to pass,1961 when they had heard8085 853 all3605 the words,1697 they were afraid6342 both413 one376 and other,7453 and said559 unto413 Baruch,1263 We will surely tell5046 5046 the king4428 of 853 all3605 these428 words.1697

17  And they asked7592 Baruch,1263 saying,559 Tell5046 us now,4994 How349 didst thou write3789 853 all3605 these428 words1697 at his mouth?4480 6310

18  Then Baruch1263 answered559 them, He pronounced7121 853 all3605 these428 words1697 unto413 me with his mouth,4480 6310 and I589 wrote3789 them with ink1773 in5921 the book.5612

19  Then said559 the princes8269 unto413 Baruch,1263 Go,1980 hide5641 thee, thou859 and Jeremiah;3414 and let no408 man376 know3045 where375 ye be.

20  And they went in935 to413 the king4428 into the court,2691 but they laid up6485 the roll4039 in the chamber3957 of Elishama476 the scribe,5608 and told5046 853 all3605 the words1697 in the ears241 of the king.4428

21  So the king4428 sent7971 853 Jehudi3065 to fetch3947 853 the roll:4039 and he took3947 it out of Elishama476 the scribe's5608 chamber.4480 3957 And Jehudi3065 read7121 it in the ears241 of the king,4428 and in the ears241 of all3605 the princes8269 which stood5975 beside4480 5921 the king.4428

22  Now the king4428 sat3427 in the winterhouse1004 2779 in the ninth8671 month:2320 and there was a fire on the hearth254 burning1197 before6440 him.

23  And it came to pass,1961 that when Jehudi3065 had read7121 three7969 or four702 leaves,1817 he cut7167 it with the penknife,8593 5608 and cast7993 it into413 the fire784 that834 was on413 the hearth,254 until5704 all3605 the roll4039 was consumed8552 in5921 the fire784 that834 was on5921 the hearth.254

24  Yet they were not3808 afraid,6342 nor3808 rent7167 853 their garments,899 neither the king,4428 nor any3605 of his servants5650 that heard8085 853 all3605 these428 words.1697

25  Nevertheless1571 Elnathan494 and Delaiah1806 and Gemariah1587 had made intercession6293 to the king4428 that he would not1115 burn8313 853 the roll:4039 but he would not3808 hear8085 413 them.

26  But the king4428 commanded6680 853 Jerahmeel3396 the son1121 of Hammelech,4429 and Seraiah8304 the son1121 of Azriel,5837 and Shelemiah8018 the son1121 of Abdeel,5655 to take3947 853 Baruch1263 the scribe5608 and Jeremiah3414 the prophet:5030 but the LORD3068 hid5641 them.

27  Then the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 to413 Jeremiah,3414 after that310 the king4428 had burned8313 853 the roll,4039 and the words1697 which834 Baruch1263 wrote3789 at the mouth4480 6310 of Jeremiah,3414 saying,559

28  Take3947 thee again7725 another312 roll,4039 and write3789 in5921 it 853 all3605 the former7223 words1697 that834 were1961 in5921 the first7223 roll,4039 which834 Jehoiakim3079 the king4428 of Judah3063 hath burned.8313

29  And thou shalt say559 to5921 Jehoiakim3079 king4428 of Judah,3063 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD;3068 Thou859 hast burned8313 853 this2063 roll,4039 saying,559 Why4069 hast thou written3789 therein,5921 saying,559 The king4428 of Babylon894 shall certainly come935 935 and destroy7843 853 this2063 land,776 and shall cause to cease7673 from4480 thence man120 and beast?929

30  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of5921 Jehoiakim3079 king4428 of Judah;3063 He shall have1961 none3808 to sit3427 upon5921 the throne3678 of David:1732 and his dead body5038 shall be1961 cast out7993 in the day3117 to the heat,2721 and in the night3915 to the frost.7140

31  And I will punish6485 5921 him and his seed2233 and his servants5650 for 853 their iniquity;5771 and I will bring935 upon5921 them, and upon5921 the inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem,3389 and upon413 the men376 of Judah,3063 853 all3605 the evil7451 that834 I have pronounced1696 against413 them; but they hearkened8085 not.3808

32  Then took3947 Jeremiah3414 another312 roll,4039 and gave5414 it to413 Baruch1263 the scribe,5608 the son1121 of Neriah;5374 who wrote3789 therein5921 from the mouth4480 6310 of Jeremiah3414 853 all3605 the words1697 of the book5612 which834 Jehoiakim3079 king4428 of Judah3063 had burned8313 in the fire:784 and there were added3254 besides5750 unto5921 them many7227 like1992 words.1697


1 καὶ οὗτοι οἱ λόγοι τῆς βίβλου οὓς ἀπέστειλεν Ιερεμιας ἐξ Ιερουσαλημ πρὸς τοὺς πρεσβυτέρους τῆς ἀποικίας καὶ πρὸς τοὺς ἱερεῖς καὶ πρὸς τοὺς ψευδοπροφήτας ἐπιστολὴν εἰς Βαβυλῶνα τῇ ἀποικίᾳ καὶ πρὸς ἅπαντα τὸν λαὸν

2 ὕστερον ἐξελθόντος Ιεχονιου τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ τῆς βασιλίσσης καὶ τῶν εὐνούχων καὶ παντὸς ἐλευθέρου καὶ δεσμώτου καὶ τεχνίτου ἐξ Ιερουσαλημ

3 ἐν χειρὶ Ελεασα υἱοῦ Σαφαν καὶ Γαμαριου υἱοῦ Χελκιου ὃν ἀπέστειλεν Σεδεκιας βασιλεὺς Ιουδα πρὸς βασιλέα Βαβυλῶνος εἰς Βαβυλῶνα λέγων

4 οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ ἐπὶ τὴν ἀποικίαν ἣν ἀπῴκισα ἀπὸ Ιερουσαλημ

5 οἰκοδομήσατε οἴκους καὶ κατοικήσατε καὶ φυτεύσατε παραδείσους καὶ φάγετε τοὺς καρποὺς αὐτῶν

6 καὶ λάβετε γυναῖκας καὶ τεκνοποιήσατε υἱοὺς καὶ θυγατέρας καὶ λάβετε τοῖς υἱοῖς ὑμῶν γυναῖκας καὶ τὰς θυγατέρας ὑμῶν ἀνδράσιν δότε καὶ πληθύνεσθε καὶ μὴ σμικρυνθῆτε

7 καὶ ζητήσατε εἰς εἰρήνην τῆς γῆς εἰς ἣν ἀπῴκισα ὑμᾶς ἐκεῖ καὶ προσεύξασθε περὶ αὐτῶν πρὸς κύριον ὅτι ἐν εἰρήνῃ αὐτῆς ἔσται εἰρήνη ὑμῖν

8 ὅτι οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος μὴ ἀναπειθέτωσαν ὑμᾶς οἱ ψευδοπροφῆται οἱ ἐν ὑμῖν καὶ μὴ ἀναπειθέτωσαν ὑμᾶς οἱ μάντεις ὑμῶν καὶ μὴ ἀκούετε εἰς τὰ ἐνύπνια ὑμῶν ἃ ὑμεῖς ἐνυπνιάζεσθε

9 ὅτι ἄδικα αὐτοὶ προφητεύουσιν ὑμῖν ἐπὶ τῷ ὀνόματί μου καὶ οὐκ ἀπέστειλα αὐτούς

10 ὅτι οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ὅταν μέλλῃ πληροῦσθαι Βαβυλῶνι ἑβδομήκοντα ἔτη ἐπισκέψομαι ὑμᾶς καὶ ἐπιστήσω τοὺς λόγους μου ἐφ᾽ ὑμᾶς τοῦ τὸν λαὸν ὑμῶν ἀποστρέψαι εἰς τὸν τόπον τοῦτον

11 καὶ λογιοῦμαι ἐφ᾽ ὑμᾶς λογισμὸν εἰρήνης καὶ οὐ κακὰ τοῦ δοῦναι ὑμῖν ταῦτα

12 καὶ προσεύξασθε πρός με καὶ εἰσακούσομαι ὑμῶν

13 καὶ ἐκζητήσατέ με καὶ εὑρήσετέ με ὅτι ζητήσετέ με ἐν ὅλῃ καρδίᾳ ὑμῶν

14 καὶ ἐπιφανοῦμαι ὑμῖν

15 ὅτι εἴπατε κατέστησεν ἡμῖν κύριος προφήτας ἐν Βαβυλῶνι

21 οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ἐπὶ Αχιαβ καὶ ἐπὶ Σεδεκιαν ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ δίδωμι αὐτοὺς εἰς χεῖρας βασιλέως Βαβυλῶνος καὶ πατάξει αὐτοὺς κατ᾽ ὀφθαλμοὺς ὑμῶν

22 καὶ λήμψονται ἀπ᾽ αὐτῶν κατάραν ἐν πάσῃ τῇ ἀποικίᾳ Ιουδα ἐν Βαβυλῶνι λέγοντες ποιήσαι σε κύριος ὡς Σεδεκιαν ἐποίησεν καὶ ὡς Αχιαβ οὓς ἀπετηγάνισεν βασιλεὺς Βαβυλῶνος ἐν πυρὶ

23 δι᾽ ἣν ἐποίησαν ἀνομίαν ἐν Ισραηλ καὶ ἐμοιχῶντο τὰς γυναῖκας τῶν πολιτῶν αὐτῶν καὶ λόγον ἐχρημάτισαν ἐν τῷ ὀνόματί μου ὃν οὐ συνέταξα αὐτοῖς καὶ ἐγὼ μάρτυς φησὶν κύριος

24 καὶ πρὸς Σαμαιαν τὸν Νελαμίτην ἐρεῖς

25 οὐκ ἀπέστειλά σε τῷ ὀνόματί μου καὶ πρὸς Σοφονιαν υἱὸν Μαασαιου τὸν ἱερέα εἰπέ

26 κύριος ἔδωκέν σε εἰς ἱερέα ἀντὶ Ιωδαε τοῦ ἱερέως γενέσθαι ἐπιστάτην ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ κυρίου παντὶ ἀνθρώπῳ προφητεύοντι καὶ παντὶ ἀνθρώπῳ μαινομένῳ καὶ δώσεις αὐτὸν εἰς τὸ ἀπόκλεισμα καὶ εἰς τὸν καταρράκτην

27 καὶ νῦν διὰ τί συνελοιδορήσατε Ιερεμιαν τὸν ἐξ Αναθωθ τὸν προφητεύσαντα ὑμῖν

28 οὐ διὰ τοῦτο ἀπέστειλεν πρὸς ὑμᾶς εἰς Βαβυλῶνα λέγων μακράν ἐστιν οἰκοδομήσατε οἰκίας καὶ κατοικήσατε καὶ φυτεύσατε κήπους καὶ φάγεσθε τὸν καρπὸν αὐτῶν

29 καὶ ἀνέγνω Σοφονιας τὸ βιβλίον εἰς τὰ ὦτα Ιερεμιου

30 καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος κυρίου πρὸς Ιερεμιαν λέγων

31 ἀπόστειλον πρὸς τὴν ἀποικίαν λέγων οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ἐπὶ Σαμαιαν τὸν Νελαμίτην ἐπειδὴ ἐπροφήτευσεν ὑμῖν Σαμαιας καὶ ἐγὼ οὐκ ἀπέστειλα αὐτόν καὶ πεποιθέναι ἐποίησεν ὑμᾶς ἐπ᾽ ἀδίκοις

32 διὰ τοῦτο οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐπισκέψομαι ἐπὶ Σαμαιαν καὶ ἐπὶ τὸ γένος αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἔσται αὐτῶν ἄνθρωπος ἐν μέσῳ ὑμῶν τοῦ ἰδεῖν τὰ ἀγαθά ἃ ἐγὼ ποιήσω ὑμῖν οὐκ ὄψονται

1 Et factum est in anno quarto Joakim filii Josiæ regis Juda, factum est verbum hoc ad Jeremiam a Domino, dicens:

2 Tolle volumen libri, et scribes in eo omnia verba quæ locutus sum tibi adversum Israël et Judam, et adversum omnes gentes, a die qua locutus sum ad te ex diebus Josiæ usque ad diem hanc:

3 si forte, audiente domo Juda universa mala quæ ego cogito facere eis, revertatur unusquisque a via sua pessima, et propitius ero iniquitati et peccato eorum.

4 Vocavit ergo Jeremias Baruch filium Neriæ: et scripsit Baruch ex ore Jeremiæ omnes sermones Domini quos locutus est ad eum, in volumine libri:

5 et præcepit Jeremias Baruch, dicens: Ego clausus sum, nec valeo ingredi domum Domini.

6 Ingredere ergo tu, et lege de volumine in quo scripsisti ex ore meo verba Domini, audiente populo in domo Domini, in die jejunii: insuper et audiente universo Juda qui veniunt de civitatibus suis, leges eis,

7 si forte cadat oratio eorum in conspectu Domini, et revertatur unusquisque a via sua pessima: quoniam magnus furor et indignatio est quam locutus est Dominus adversus populum hunc.

8 Et fecit Baruch filius Neriæ juxta omnia quæ præceperat ei Jeremias propheta, legens ex volumine sermones Domini in domo Domini.

9 Factum est autem in anno quinto Joakim filii Josiæ regis Juda, in mense nono: prædicaverunt jejunium in conspectu Domini omni populo in Jerusalem, et universæ multitudini quæ confluxerat de civitatibus Juda in Jerusalem.

10 Legitque Baruch ex volumine sermones Jeremiæ in domo Domini, in gazophylacio Gamariæ filii Saphan scribæ, in vestibulo superiori, in introitu portæ novæ domus Domini, audiente omni populo.

11 Cumque audisset Michæas filius Gamariæ filii Saphan omnes sermones Domini ex libro,

12 descendit in domum regis, ad gazophylacium scribæ, et ecce ibi omnes principes sedebant: Elisama scriba, et Dalaias filius Semeiæ, et Elnathan filius Achobor, et Gamarias filius Saphan, et Sedecias filius Hananiæ, et universi principes:

13 et nuntiavit eis Michæas omnia verba quæ audivit, legente Baruch ex volumine in auribus populi.

14 Miserunt itaque omnes principes ad Baruch Judi filium Nathaniæ filii Selemiæ filii Chusi, dicentes: Volumen ex quo legisti, audiente populo, sume in manu tua, et veni. Tulit ergo Baruch filius Neriæ volumen in manu sua, et venit ad eos:

15 et dixerunt ad eum: Sede, et lege hæc in auribus nostris. Et legit Baruch in auribus eorum.

16 Igitur cum audissent omnia verba, obstupuerunt unusquisque ad proximum suum, et dixerunt ad Baruch: Nuntiare debemus regi omnes sermones istos.

17 Et interrogaverunt eum, dicentes: Indica nobis quomodo scripsisti omnes sermones istos ex ore ejus.

18 Dixit autem eis Baruch: Ex ore suo loquebatur quasi legens ad me omnes sermones istos, et ego scribebam in volumine atramento.

19 Et dixerunt principes ad Baruch: Vade, et abscondere, tu et Jeremias, et nemo sciat ubi sitis.

20 Et ingressi sunt ad regem in atrium: porro volumen commendaverunt in gazophylacio Elisamæ scribæ, et nuntiaverunt, audiente rege, omnes sermones.

21 Misitque rex Judi ut sumeret volumen: qui tollens illud de gazophylacio Elisamæ scribæ, legit, audiente rege et universis principibus qui stabant circa regem.

22 Rex autem sedebat in domo hiemali, in mense nono, et posita erat arula coram eo plena prunis.

23 Cumque legisset Judi tres pagellas vel quatuor, scidit illud scalpello scribæ, et projecit in ignem qui erat super arulam, donec consumeretur omne volumen igni qui erat in arula.

24 Et non timuerunt, neque sciderunt vestimenta sua, rex et omnes servi ejus qui audierunt universos sermones istos.

25 Verumtamen Elnathan, et Dalaias, et Gamarias, contradixerunt regi, ne combureret librum: et non audivit eos.

26 Et præcepit rex Jeremiel filio Amelech, et Saraiæ filio Ezriel, et Selemiæ filio Abdeel, ut comprehenderent Baruch scribam, et Jeremiam prophetam: abscondit autem eos Dominus.

27 Et factum est verbum Domini ad Jeremiam prophetam, postquam combusserat rex volumen et sermones quos scripserat Baruch ex ore Jeremiæ, dicens:

28 Rursum tolle volumen aliud, et scribe in eo omnes sermones priores qui erant in primo volumine, quod combussit Joakim rex Juda.

29 Et ad Joakim regem Juda dices: Hæc dicit Dominus: Tu combussisti volumen illud, dicens: Quare scripsisti in eo annuntians: Festinus veniet rex Babylonis, et vastabit terram hanc, et cessare faciet ex illa hominem et jumentum?

30 Propterea hæc dicit Dominus contra Joakim regem Juda: Non erit ex eo qui sedeat super solium David: et cadaver ejus projicietur ad æstum per diem, et ad gelu per noctem.

31 Et visitabo contra eum, et contra semen ejus, et contra servos ejus, iniquitates suas: et adducam super eos, et super habitatores Jerusalem, et super viros Juda, omne malum quod locutus sum ad eos, et non audierunt.

32 Jeremias autem tulit volumen aliud, et dedit illud Baruch filio Neriæ scribæ: qui scripsit in eo ex ore Jeremiæ omnes sermones libri quem combusserat Joakim rex Juda igni: et insuper additi sunt sermones multo plures quam antea fuerant.
