Jeremiah 42


1  Then all3605 the captains8269 of the forces,2428 and Johanan3110 the son1121 of Kareah,7143 and Jezaniah3153 the son1121 of Hoshaiah,1955 and all3605 the people5971 from the least4480 6996 even unto5704 the greatest,1419 came near,5066

2  And said559 unto413 Jeremiah3414 the prophet,5030 Let, we beseech thee,4994 our supplication8467 be accepted5307 before6440 thee, and pray6419 for1157 us unto413 the LORD3068 thy God,430 even for1157 all3605 this2063 remnant;7611 (for3588 we are left7604 but a few4592 of many,4480 7235 as834 thine eyes5869 do behold7200 us:)

3  That the LORD3068 thy God430 may show5046 us 853 the way1870 wherein834 we may walk,1980 and the thing1697 that834 we may do.6213

4  Then Jeremiah3414 the prophet5030 said559 unto413 them, I have heard8085 you; behold,2009 I will pray6419 unto413 the LORD3068 your God430 according to your words;1697 and it shall come to pass,1961 that whatsoever3605 834 thing1697 the LORD3068 shall answer6030 you, I will declare5046 it unto you; I will keep nothing back4513 3808 1697 from4480 you.

5  Then they1992 said559 to413 Jeremiah,3414 The LORD3068 be1961 a true571 and faithful539 witness5707 between us, if518 we do6213 not3808 even3651 according to all3605 things1697 for the which834 the LORD3068 thy God430 shall send7971 thee to413 us.

6  Whether518 it be good,2896 or whether518 it be evil,7451 we will obey8085 the voice6963 of the LORD3068 our God,430 to whom834 we580 send7971 thee; that4616 834 it may be well3190 with us, when3588 we obey8085 the voice6963 of the LORD3068 our God.430

7  And it came to pass1961 after4480 7093 ten6235 days,3117 that the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 Jeremiah.3414

8  Then called7121 413 he Johanan3110 the son1121 of Kareah,7143 and all3605 the captains8269 of the forces2428 which834 were with854 him, and all3605 the people5971 from the least4480 6996 even to5704 the greatest,1419

9  And said559 unto413 them, Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 the God430 of Israel,3478 unto413 whom834 ye sent7971 me to present5307 your supplication8467 before6440 him;

10  If518 ye will still abide7725 3427 in this2063 land,776 then will I build1129 you, and not3808 pull you down,2040 and I will plant5193 you, and not3808 pluck you up:5428 for3588 I repent5162 me of413 the evil7451 that834 I have done6213 unto you.

11  Be not408 afraid3372 of4480 6440 the king4428 of Babylon,894 of whom834 ye859 are afraid;3372 4480 6440 be not408 afraid3372 of4480 him, saith5002 the LORD:3068 for3588 I589 am with854 you to save3467 you, and to deliver5337 you from his hand.4480 3027

12  And I will show5414 mercies7356 unto you, that he may have mercy upon7355 you, and cause you to return7725 853 to413 your own land.127

13  But if518 ye859 say,559 We will not3808 dwell3427 in this2063 land,776 neither1115 obey8085 the voice6963 of the LORD3068 your God,430

14  Saying,559 No;3808 but3588 we will go935 into the land776 of Egypt,4714 where834 we shall see7200 no3808 war,4421 nor3808 hear8085 the sound6963 of the trumpet,7782 nor3808 have hunger7456 of bread;3899 and there8033 will we dwell:3427

15  And now6258 therefore3651 hear8085 the word1697 of the LORD,3068 ye remnant7611 of Judah;3063 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 the God430 of Israel;3478 If518 ye859 wholly set7760 7760 your faces6440 to enter into935 Egypt,4714 and go935 to sojourn1481 there;8033

16  Then it shall come to pass,1961 that the sword,2719 which834 ye859 feared,3373 4480 shall overtake5381 you there8033 in the land776 of Egypt,4714 and the famine,7458 whereof834 ye859 were afraid,1672 4480 shall follow close1692 after310 you there8033 in Egypt;4714 and there8033 ye shall die.4191

17  So shall it be1961 with all3605 the men376 that834 set7760 853 their faces6440 to go into935 Egypt4714 to sojourn1481 there;8033 they shall die4191 by the sword,2719 by the famine,7458 and by the pestilence:1698 and none3808 of them shall1961 remain8300 or escape6412 from4480 6440 the evil7451 that834 I589 will bring935 upon5921 them.

18  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 the God430 of Israel;3478 As834 mine anger639 and my fury2534 hath been poured forth5413 upon5921 the inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem;3389 so3651 shall my fury2534 be poured forth5413 upon5921 you, when ye shall1961 enter into935 Egypt:4714 and ye shall be an execration,423 and an astonishment,8047 and a curse,7045 and a reproach;2781 and ye shall see7200 853 this2088 place4725 no3808 more.5750

19  The LORD3068 hath said1696 concerning5921 you, O ye remnant7611 of Judah;3063 Go935 ye not408 into Egypt:4714 know certainly3045 3045 that3588 I have admonished5749 you this day.3117

20  For3588 ye dissembled8582 in your hearts,5315 when3588 ye859 sent7971 me unto413 the LORD3068 your God,430 saying,559 Pray6419 for1157 us unto413 the LORD3068 our God;430 and according unto all3605 that834 the LORD3068 our God430 shall say,559 so3651 declare5046 unto us, and we will do6213 it.

21  And now I have this day3117 declared5046 it to you; but ye have not3808 obeyed8085 the voice6963 of the LORD3068 your God,430 nor any3605 thing for the which834 he hath sent7971 me unto413 you.

22  Now6258 therefore know certainly3045 3045 that3588 ye shall die4191 by the sword,2719 by the famine,7458 and by the pestilence,1698 in the place4725 whither834 8033 ye desire2654 to go935 and to sojourn.1481


1 ὁ λόγος ὁ γενόμενος πρὸς Ιερεμιαν παρὰ κυρίου ἐν ἡμέραις Ιωακιμ βασιλέως Ιουδα λέγων

2 βάδισον εἰς οἶκον Αρχαβιν καὶ ἄξεις αὐτοὺς εἰς οἶκον κυρίου εἰς μίαν τῶν αὐλῶν καὶ ποτιεῖς αὐτοὺς οἶνον

3 καὶ ἐξήγαγον τὸν Ιεζονιαν υἱὸν Ιερεμιν υἱοῦ Χαβασιν καὶ τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ πᾶσαν τὴν οἰκίαν Αρχαβιν

4 καὶ εἰσήγαγον αὐτοὺς εἰς οἶκον κυρίου εἰς τὸ παστοφόριον υἱῶν Ανανιου υἱοῦ Γοδολιου ἀνθρώπου τοῦ θεοῦ ὅ ἐστιν ἐγγὺς τοῦ οἴκου τῶν ἀρχόντων τῶν ἐπάνω τοῦ οἴκου Μαασαιου υἱοῦ Σελωμ τοῦ φυλάσσοντος τὴν αὐλήν

5 καὶ ἔδωκα κατὰ πρόσωπον αὐτῶν κεράμιον οἴνου καὶ ποτήρια καὶ εἶπα πίετε οἶνον

6 καὶ εἶπαν οὐ μὴ πίωμεν οἶνον ὅτι Ιωναδαβ υἱὸς Ρηχαβ ὁ πατὴρ ἡμῶν ἐνετείλατο ἡμῖν λέγων οὐ μὴ πίητε οἶνον ὑμεῖς καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ ὑμῶν ἕως αἰῶνος

7 καὶ οἰκίαν οὐ μὴ οἰκοδομήσητε καὶ σπέρμα οὐ μὴ σπείρητε καὶ ἀμπελὼν οὐκ ἔσται ὑμῖν ὅτι ἐν σκηναῖς οἰκήσετε πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας ὑμῶν ὅπως ἂν ζήσητε ἡμέρας πολλὰς ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ἐφ᾽ ἧς διατρίβετε ὑμεῖς ἐπ᾽ αὐτῆς

8 καὶ ἠκούσαμεν τῆς φωνῆς Ιωναδαβ τοῦ πατρὸς ἡμῶν πρὸς τὸ μὴ πιεῖν οἶνον πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας ἡμῶν ἡμεῖς καὶ αἱ γυναῖκες ἡμῶν καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ ἡμῶν καὶ αἱ θυγατέρες ἡμῶν

9 καὶ πρὸς τὸ μὴ οἰκοδομεῖν οἰκίας τοῦ κατοικεῖν ἐκεῖ καὶ ἀμπελὼν καὶ ἀγρὸς καὶ σπέρμα οὐκ ἐγένετο ἡμῖν

10 καὶ ᾠκήσαμεν ἐν σκηναῖς καὶ ἠκούσαμεν καὶ ἐποιήσαμεν κατὰ πάντα ἃ ἐνετείλατο ἡμῖν Ιωναδαβ ὁ πατὴρ ἡμῶν

11 καὶ ἐγενήθη ὅτε ἀνέβη Ναβουχοδονοσορ ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ εἴπαμεν εἰσέλθατε καὶ εἰσέλθωμεν εἰς Ιερουσαλημ ἀπὸ προσώπου τῆς δυνάμεως τῶν Χαλδαίων καὶ ἀπὸ προσώπου τῆς δυνάμεως τῶν Ἀσσυρίων καὶ ᾠκοῦμεν ἐκεῖ

12 καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος κυρίου πρός με λέγων

13 οὕτως λέγει κύριος πορεύου καὶ εἰπὸν ἀνθρώπῳ Ιουδα καὶ τοῖς κατοικοῦσιν Ιερουσαλημ οὐ μὴ λάβητε παιδείαν τοῦ ἀκούειν τοὺς λόγους μου

14 ἔστησαν ῥῆμα υἱοὶ Ιωναδαβ υἱοῦ Ρηχαβ ὃ ἐνετείλατο τοῖς τέκνοις αὐτοῦ πρὸς τὸ μὴ πιεῖν οἶνον καὶ οὐκ ἐπίοσαν καὶ ἐγὼ ἐλάλησα πρὸς ὑμᾶς ὄρθρου καὶ ἐλάλησα καὶ οὐκ ἠκούσατε

15 καὶ ἀπέστειλα πρὸς ὑμᾶς τοὺς παῖδάς μου τοὺς προφήτας λέγων ἀποστράφητε ἕκαστος ἀπὸ τῆς ὁδοῦ αὐτοῦ τῆς πονηρᾶς καὶ βελτίω ποιήσατε τὰ ἐπιτηδεύματα ὑμῶν καὶ οὐ πορεύσεσθε ὀπίσω θεῶν ἑτέρων τοῦ δουλεύειν αὐτοῖς καὶ οἰκήσετε ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ἧς ἔδωκα ὑμῖν καὶ τοῖς πατράσιν ὑμῶν καὶ οὐκ ἐκλίνατε τὰ ὦτα ὑμῶν καὶ οὐκ ἠκούσατε

16 καὶ ἔστησαν υἱοὶ Ιωναδαβ υἱοῦ Ρηχαβ τὴν ἐντολὴν τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῶν ὁ δὲ λαὸς οὗτος οὐκ ἤκουσάν μου

17 διὰ τοῦτο οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ φέρω ἐπὶ Ιουδαν καὶ ἐπὶ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας Ιερουσαλημ πάντα τὰ κακά ἃ ἐλάλησα ἐπ᾽ αὐτούς

18 διὰ τοῦτο οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ἐπειδὴ ἤκουσαν υἱοὶ Ιωναδαβ υἱοῦ Ρηχαβ τὴν ἐντολὴν τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῶν ποιεῖν καθότι ἐνετείλατο αὐτοῖς ὁ πατὴρ αὐτῶν

19 οὐ μὴ ἐκλίπῃ ἀνὴρ τῶν υἱῶν Ιωναδαβ υἱοῦ Ρηχαβ παρεστηκὼς κατὰ πρόσωπόν μου πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας τῆς γῆς

1 Et accesserunt omnes principes bellatorum, et Johanan filius Caree, et Jezonias filius Osaiæ, et reliquum vulgus, a parvo usque ad magnum,

2 dixeruntque ad Jeremiam prophetam: Cadat oratio nostra in conspectu tuo, et ora pro nobis ad Dominum Deum tuum, pro universis reliquiis istis, quia derelicti sumus pauci de pluribus, sicut oculi tui non intuentur:

3 et annuntiet nobis Dominus Deus tuus viam per quam pergamus, et verbum quod faciamus.

4 Dixit autem ad eos Jeremias propheta: Audivi. Ecce ego oro ad Dominum Deum vestrum secundum verba vestra: omne verbum quodcumque responderit mihi indicabo vobis, nec celabo vos quidquam.

5 Et illi dixerunt ad Jeremiam: Sit Dominus inter nos testis veritatis et fidei, si non juxta omne verbum in quo miserit te Dominus Deus tuus ad nos, sic faciemus:

6 sive bonum est, sive malum, voci Domini Dei nostri, ad quem mittimus te, obediemus, ut bene sit nobis cum audierimus vocem Domini Dei nostri.

7 Cum autem completi essent decem dies, factum est verbum Domini ad Jeremiam,

8 vocavitque Johanan filium Caree, et omnes principes bellatorum qui erant cum eo, et universum populum, a minimo usque ad magnum.

9 Et dixit ad eos: Hæc dicit Dominus Deus Israël, ad quem misistis me ut prosternerem preces vestras in conspectu ejus:

10 Si quiescentes manseritis in terra hac, ædificabo vos, et non destruam: plantabo, et non evellam: jam enim placatus sum super malo quod feci vobis.

11 Nolite timere a facie regis Babylonis, quem vos pavidi formidatis: nolite metuere eum, dicit Dominus, quia vobiscum sum ego ut salvos vos faciam, et eruam de manu ejus:

12 et dabo vobis misericordias, et miserebor vestri, et habitare vos faciam in terra vestra.

13 Si autem dixeritis vos: Non habitabimus in terra ista, nec audiemus vocem Domini Dei nostri,

14 dicentes: Nequaquam, sed ad terram Ægypti pergemus, ubi non videbimus bellum, et clangorem tubæ non audiemus, et famem non sustinebimus, et ibi habitabimus:

15 propter hoc nunc audite verbum Domini, reliquiæ Juda: Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël: Si posueritis faciem vestram ut ingrediamini Ægyptum, et intraveritis ut ibi habitetis,

16 gladius quem vos formidatis ibi comprehendet vos in terra Ægypti: et fames, pro qua estis solliciti, adhærebit vobis in Ægypto, et ibi moriemini.

17 Omnesque viri qui posuerunt faciem suam ut ingrediantur Ægyptum, ut habitent ibi, morientur gladio, et fame, et peste: nullus de eis remanebit, nec effugiet a facie mali quod ego afferam super eos.

18 Quia hæc dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël: Sicut conflatus est furor meus et indignatio mea super habitatores Jerusalem, sic conflabitur indignatio mea super vos cum ingressi fueritis Ægyptum: et eritis in jusjurandum, et in stuporem, et in maledictum, et in opprobrium, et nequaquam ultra videbitis locum istum.

19 Verbum Domini super vos, reliquiæ Juda: Nolite intrare Ægyptum: scientes scietis, quia obtestatus sum vos hodie,

20 quia decepistis animas vestras. Vos enim misistis me ad Dominum Deum nostrum, dicentes: Ora pro nobis ad Dominum Deum nostrum, et juxta omnia quæcumque dixerit tibi Dominus Deus noster, sic annuntia nobis, et faciemus.

21 Et annuntiavi vobis hodie, et non audistis vocem Domini Dei vestri super universis pro quibus misit me ad vos.

22 Nunc ergo scientes scietis quia gladio, et fame, et peste moriemini in loco ad quem voluistis intrare ut habitaretis ibi.
