Jeremiah 13


1  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 unto413 me, Go1980 and get7069 thee a linen6593 girdle,232 and put7760 it upon5921 thy loins,4975 and put935 it not3808 in water.4325

2  So I got7069 853 a girdle232 according to the word1697 of the LORD,3068 and put7760 it on5921 my loins.4975

3  And the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me the second time,8145 saying,559

4  Take3947 853 the girdle232 that834 thou hast got,7069 which834 is upon5921 thy loins,4975 and arise,6965 go1980 to Euphrates,6578 and hide2934 it there8033 in a hole5357 of the rock.5553

5  So I went,1980 and hid2934 it by Euphrates,6578 as834 the LORD3068 commanded6680 me.

6  And it came to pass1961 after4480 7093 many7227 days,3117 that the LORD3068 said559 unto413 me, Arise,6965 go1980 to Euphrates,6578 and take3947 853 the girdle232 from thence,4480 8033 which834 I commanded6680 thee to hide2934 there.8033

7  Then I went1980 to Euphrates,6578 and digged,2658 and took3947 853 the girdle232 from4480 the place4725 where834 8033 I had hid2934 it: and, behold,2009 the girdle232 was marred,7843 it was profitable6743 for nothing.3808 3605

8  Then the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 me, saying,559

9  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 After this manner3602 will I mar7843 the pride1347 of Judah,3063 and the great7227 pride1347 of Jerusalem.3389

10  This2088 evil7451 people,5971 which refuse3987 to hear8085 853 my words,1697 which walk1980 in the imagination8307 of their heart,3820 and walk1980 after310 other312 gods,430 to serve5647 them, and to worship7812 them, shall even be1961 as this2088 girdle,232 which834 is good6743 for nothing.3808 3605

11  For3588 as834 the girdle232 cleaveth1692 to413 the loins4975 of a man,376 so3651 have I caused to cleave1692 unto413 me 853 the whole3605 house1004 of Israel3478 and the whole3605 house1004 of Judah,3063 saith5002 the LORD;3068 that they might be1961 unto me for a people,5971 and for a name,8034 and for a praise,8416 and for a glory:8597 but they would not3808 hear.8085

12  Therefore thou shalt speak559 unto413 them 853 this2088 word;1697 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 God430 of Israel,3478 Every3605 bottle5035 shall be filled4390 with wine:3196 and they shall say559 unto413 thee, Do we not3808 certainly know3045 3045 that3588 every3605 bottle5035 shall be filled4390 with wine?3196

13  Then shalt thou say559 unto413 them, Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Behold,2009 I will fill4390 853 all3605 the inhabitants3427 of this2063 land,776 even the kings4428 that sit3427 upon5921 David's1732 throne,3678 and the priests,3548 and the prophets,5030 and all3605 the inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem,3389 with drunkenness.7943

14  And I will dash5310 them one376 against413 another,251 even the fathers1 and the sons1121 together,3162 saith5002 the LORD:3068 I will not3808 pity,2550 nor3808 spare,2347 nor3808 have mercy,7355 but destroy4480 7843 them.

15  Hear8085 ye, and give ear;238 be not408 proud:1361 for3588 the LORD3068 hath spoken.1696

16  Give5414 glory3519 to the LORD3068 your God,430 before2962 he cause darkness,2821 and before2962 your feet7272 stumble5062 upon5921 the dark5399 mountains,2022 and, while ye look6960 for light,216 he turn7760 it into the shadow of death,6757 and make7896 it gross darkness.6205

17  But if518 ye will not3808 hear8085 it, my soul5315 shall weep1058 in secret places4565 for4480 6440 your pride;1466 and mine eye5869 shall weep sore,1830 1830 and run down3381 with tears,1832 because3588 the LORD's3068 flock5739 is carried away captive.7617

18  Say559 unto the king4428 and to the queen,1377 Humble yourselves,8213 sit down:3427 for3588 your principalities4761 shall come down,3381 even the crown5850 of your glory.8597

19  The cities5892 of the south5045 shall be shut up,5462 and none369 shall open6605 them: Judah3063 shall be carried away captive1540 all3605 of it, it shall be wholly7965 carried away captive.1540

20  Lift up5375 your eyes,5869 and behold7200 them that come935 from the north:4480 6828 where346 is the flock5739 that was given5414 thee, thy beautiful8597 flock?6629

21  What4100 wilt thou say559 when3588 he shall punish6485 5921 thee? for thou859 hast taught3925 them to be captains,441 and as chief7218 over5921 thee: shall not3808 sorrows2256 take270 thee, as3644 a woman802 in travail?3205

22  And if3588 thou say559 in thine heart,3824 Wherefore4069 come7122 these things428 upon me? For the greatness7230 of thine iniquity5771 are thy skirts7757 discovered,1540 and thy heels6119 made bare.2554

23  Can the Ethiopian3569 change2015 his skin,5785 or the leopard5246 his spots?2272 then may3201 ye859 also1571 do good,3190 that are accustomed3928 to do evil.7489

24  Therefore will I scatter6327 them as the stubble7179 that passeth away5674 by the wind7307 of the wilderness.4057

25  This2088 is thy lot,1486 the portion4490 of thy measures4055 from4480 854 me, saith5002 the LORD;3068 because834 thou hast forgotten7911 me, and trusted982 in falsehood.8267

26  Therefore1571 will I589 discover2834 thy skirts7757 upon5921 thy face,6440 that thy shame7036 may appear.7200

27  I have seen7200 thine adulteries,5004 and thy neighings,4684 the lewdness2154 of thy whoredom,2184 and thine abominations8251 on5921 the hills1389 in the fields.7704 Woe188 unto thee, O Jerusalem!3389 wilt thou not3808 be made clean?2891 when310 shall it once5750 be?


1 τάδε λέγει κύριος βάδισον καὶ κτῆσαι σεαυτῷ περίζωμα λινοῦν καὶ περίθου περὶ τὴν ὀσφύν σου καὶ ἐν ὕδατι οὐ διελεύσεται

2 καὶ ἐκτησάμην τὸ περίζωμα κατὰ τὸν λόγον κυρίου καὶ περιέθηκα περὶ τὴν ὀσφύν μου

3 καὶ ἐγενήθη λόγος κυρίου πρός με λέγων

4 λαβὲ τὸ περίζωμα τὸ περὶ τὴν ὀσφύν σου καὶ ἀνάστηθι καὶ βάδισον ἐπὶ τὸν Εὐφράτην καὶ κατάκρυψον αὐτὸ ἐκεῖ ἐν τῇ τρυμαλιᾷ τῆς πέτρας

5 καὶ ἐπορεύθην καὶ ἔκρυψα αὐτὸ ἐν τῷ Εὐφράτῃ καθὼς ἐνετείλατό μοι κύριος

6 καὶ ἐγένετο μεθ᾽ ἡμέρας πολλὰς καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρός με ἀνάστηθι βάδισον ἐπὶ τὸν Εὐφράτην καὶ λαβὲ ἐκεῖθεν τὸ περίζωμα ὃ ἐνετειλάμην σοι τοῦ κατακρύψαι ἐκεῖ

7 καὶ ἐπορεύθην ἐπὶ τὸν Εὐφράτην ποταμὸν καὶ ὤρυξα καὶ ἔλαβον τὸ περίζωμα ἐκ τοῦ τόπου οὗ κατώρυξα αὐτὸ ἐκεῖ καὶ ἰδοὺ διεφθαρμένον ἦν ὃ οὐ μὴ χρησθῇ εἰς οὐθέν

8 καὶ ἐγενήθη λόγος κυρίου πρός με λέγων

9 τάδε λέγει κύριος οὕτω φθερῶ τὴν ὕβριν Ιουδα καὶ τὴν ὕβριν Ιερουσαλημ

10 τὴν πολλὴν ταύτην ὕβριν τοὺς μὴ βουλομένους ὑπακούειν τῶν λόγων μου καὶ πορευθέντας ὀπίσω θεῶν ἀλλοτρίων τοῦ δουλεύειν αὐτοῖς καὶ τοῦ προσκυνεῖν αὐτοῖς καὶ ἔσονται ὥσπερ τὸ περίζωμα τοῦτο ὃ οὐ χρησθήσεται εἰς οὐθέν

11 ὅτι καθάπερ κολλᾶται τὸ περίζωμα περὶ τὴν ὀσφὺν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου οὕτως ἐκόλλησα πρὸς ἐμαυτὸν τὸν οἶκον τοῦ Ισραηλ καὶ πᾶν οἶκον Ιουδα τοῦ γενέσθαι μοι εἰς λαὸν ὀνομαστὸν καὶ εἰς καύχημα καὶ εἰς δόξαν καὶ οὐκ εἰσήκουσάν μου

12 καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς τὸν λαὸν τοῦτον πᾶς ἀσκὸς πληρωθήσεται οἴνου καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν εἴπωσιν πρὸς σέ μὴ γνόντες οὐ γνωσόμεθα ὅτι πᾶς ἀσκὸς πληρωθήσεται οἴνου

13 καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς αὐτούς τάδε λέγει κύριος ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ πληρῶ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας τὴν γῆν ταύτην καὶ τοὺς βασιλεῖς αὐτῶν τοὺς καθημένους υἱοὺς Δαυιδ ἐπὶ θρόνου αὐτοῦ καὶ τοὺς ἱερεῖς καὶ τοὺς προφήτας καὶ τὸν Ιουδαν καὶ πάντας τοὺς κατοικοῦντας Ιερουσαλημ μεθύσματι

14 καὶ διασκορπιῶ αὐτοὺς ἄνδρα καὶ τὸν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ τοὺς πατέρας αὐτῶν καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτῶν ἐν τῷ αὐτῷ οὐκ ἐπιποθήσω λέγει κύριος καὶ οὐ φείσομαι καὶ οὐκ οἰκτιρήσω ἀπὸ διαφθορᾶς αὐτῶν

15 ἀκούσατε καὶ ἐνωτίσασθε καὶ μὴ ἐπαίρεσθε ὅτι κύριος ἐλάλησεν

16 δότε τῷ κυρίῳ θεῷ ὑμῶν δόξαν πρὸ τοῦ συσκοτάσαι καὶ πρὸς τοῦ προσκόψαι πόδας ὑμῶν ἐπ᾽ ὄρη σκοτεινὰ καὶ ἀναμενεῖτε εἰς φῶς καὶ ἐκεῖ σκιὰ θανάτου καὶ τεθήσονται εἰς σκότος

17 ἐὰν δὲ μὴ ἀκούσητε κεκρυμμένως κλαύσεται ἡ ψυχὴ ὑμῶν ἀπὸ προσώπου ὕβρεως καὶ κατάξουσιν οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ ὑμῶν δάκρυα ὅτι συνετρίβη τὸ ποίμνιον κυρίου

18 εἴπατε τῷ βασιλεῖ καὶ τοῖς δυναστεύουσιν ταπεινώθητε καὶ καθίσατε ὅτι καθῃρέθη ἀπὸ κεφαλῆς ὑμῶν στέφανος δόξης ὑμῶν

19 πόλεις αἱ πρὸς νότον συνεκλείσθησαν καὶ οὐκ ἦν ὁ ἀνοίγων ἀπῳκίσθη Ιουδας συνετέλεσεν ἀποικίαν τελείαν

20 ἀνάλαβε ὀφθαλμούς σου Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἰδὲ τοὺς ἐρχομένους ἀπὸ βορρᾶ ποῦ ἐστιν τὸ ποίμνιον ὃ ἐδόθη σοι πρόβατα δόξης σου

21 τί ἐρεῖς ὅταν ἐπισκέπτωνταί σε καὶ σὺ ἐδίδαξας αὐτοὺς ἐπὶ σὲ μαθήματα εἰς ἀρχήν οὐκ ὠδῖνες καθέξουσίν σε καθὼς γυναῖκα τίκτουσαν

22 καὶ ἐὰν εἴπῃς ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ σου διὰ τί ἀπήντησέν μοι ταῦτα διὰ τὸ πλῆθος τῆς ἀδικίας σου ἀνεκαλύφθη τὰ ὀπίσθιά σου παραδειγματισθῆναι τὰς πτέρνας σου

23 εἰ ἀλλάξεται Αἰθίοψ τὸ δέρμα αὐτοῦ καὶ πάρδαλις τὰ ποικίλματα αὐτῆς καὶ ὑμεῖς δυνήσεσθε εὖ ποιῆσαι μεμαθηκότες τὰ κακά

24 καὶ διέσπειρα αὐτοὺς ὡς φρύγανα φερόμενα ὑπὸ ἀνέμου εἰς ἔρημον

25 οὗτος ὁ κλῆρός σου καὶ μερὶς τοῦ ἀπειθεῖν ὑμᾶς ἐμοί λέγει κύριος ὡς ἐπελάθου μου καὶ ἤλπισας ἐπὶ ψεύδεσιν

26 κἀγὼ ἀποκαλύψω τὰ ὀπίσω σου ἐπὶ τὸ πρόσωπόν σου καὶ ὀφθήσεται ἡ ἀτιμία σου

27 καὶ ἡ μοιχεία σου καὶ ὁ χρεμετισμός σου καὶ ἡ ἀπαλλοτρίωσις τῆς πορνείας σου ἐπὶ τῶν βουνῶν καὶ ἐν τοῖς ἀγροῖς ἑώρακα τὰ βδελύγματά σου οὐαί σοι Ιερουσαλημ ὅτι οὐκ ἐκαθαρίσθης ὀπίσω μου ἕως τίνος ἔτι

1 Hæc dicit Dominus ad me: Vade, et posside tibi lumbare lineum, et pones illud super lumbos tuos, et in aquam non inferes illud.

2 Et possedi lumbare juxta verbum Domini, et posui circa lumbos meos.

3 Et factus est sermo Domini ad me secundo, dicens:

4 Tolle lumbare quod possedisti, quod est circa lumbos tuos: et surgens vade ad Euphraten, et absconde ibi illud in foramine petræ.

5 Et abii, et abscondi illud in Euphrate, sicut præceperat mihi Dominus.

6 Et factum est post dies plurimos, dixit Dominus ad me: Surge, vade ad Euphraten, et tolle inde lumbare quod præcepi tibi ut absconderes illud ibi.

7 Et abii ad Euphraten, et fodi, et tuli lumbare de loco ubi absconderam illud: et ecce computruerat lumbare, ita ut nulli usui aptum esset.

8 Et factum est verbum Domini ad me, dicens:

9 [Hæc dicit Dominus:
Sic putrescere faciam superbiam Juda,
et superbiam Jerusalem multam:

10 populum istum pessimum qui nolunt audire verba mea,
et ambulant in pravitate cordis sui,
abieruntque post deos alienos ut servirent eis et adorarent eos:
et erunt sicut lumbare istud,
quod nulli usui aptum est.

11 Sicut enim adhæret lumbare ad lumbos viri,
sic agglutinavi mihi omnem domum Israël,
et omnem domum Juda, dicit Dominus,
ut essent mihi in populum,
et in nomen, et in laudem, et in gloriam:
et non audierunt.]

12 Dices ergo ad eos sermonem istum: [Hæc dicit Dominus Deus Israël:
Omnis laguncula implebitur vino.] Et dicent ad te: [Numquid ignoramus quia omnis laguncula implebitur vino?]

13 Et dices ad eos: [Hæc dicit Dominus:
Ecce ego implebo omnes habitatores terræ hujus,
et reges qui sedent de stirpe David super thronum ejus,
et sacerdotes, et prophetas,
et omnes habitatores Jerusalem, ebrietate.

14 Et dispergam eos virum a fratre suo,
et patres et filios pariter, ait Dominus.
Non parcam, et non concedam:
neque miserebor, ut non disperdam eos.

15 Audite, et auribus percipite:
nolite elevari, quia Dominus locutus est.

16 Date Domino Deo vestro gloriam
antequam contenebrescat,
et antequam offendant pedes vestri ad montes caliginosos:
exspectabitis lucem,
et ponet eam in umbram mortis, et in caliginem.

17 Quod si hoc non audieritis,
in abscondito plorabit anima mea a facie superbiæ:
plorans plorabit,
et deducet oculus meus lacrimam,
quia captus est grex Domini.

18 Dic regi et dominatrici:
Humiliamini, sedete,
quoniam descendit de capite vestro corona gloriæ vestræ.

19 Civitates austri clausæ sunt,
et non est qui aperiat:
translata est omnis Juda transmigratione perfecta.

20 Levate oculos vestros et videte,
qui venitis ab aquilone:
ubi est grex qui datus est tibi,
pecus inclytum tuum?

21 Quid dices cum visitaverit te?
tu enim docuisti eos adversum te,
et erudisti in caput tuum.
Numquid non dolores apprehendent te,
quasi mulierem parturientem?

22 Quod si dixeris in corde tuo: Quare venerunt mihi hæc?
propter multitudinem iniquitatis tuæ
revelata sunt verecundiora tua,
pollutæ sunt plantæ tuæ.

23 Si mutare potest Æthiops pellem suam,
aut pardus varietates suas,
et vos poteritis benefacere,
cum didiceritis malum.

24 Et disseminabo eos quasi stipulam
quæ vento raptatur in deserto.

25 Hæc sors tua,
parsque mensuræ tuæ a me, dicit Dominus,
quia oblita es mei,
et confisa es in mendacio.

26 Unde et ego nudavi femora tua contra faciem tuam,
et apparuit ignominia tua:

27 adulteria tua, et hinnitus tuus,
scelus fornicationis tuæ:
super colles in agro vidi abominationes tuas.
Væ tibi, Jerusalem!
non mundaberis post me: usquequo adhuc?]
