Jeremiah 22


1  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD;3068 Go down3381 to the house1004 of the king4428 of Judah,3063 and speak1696 there8033 853 this2088 word,1697

2  And say,559 Hear8085 the word1697 of the LORD,3068 O king4428 of Judah,3063 that sittest3427 upon5921 the throne3678 of David,1732 thou,859 and thy servants,5650 and thy people5971 that enter935 in by these428 gates:8179

3  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD;3068 Execute6213 ye judgment4941 and righteousness,6666 and deliver5337 the spoiled1497 out of the hand4480 3027 of the oppressor:6216 and do no408 wrong,3238 do no408 violence2554 to the stranger,1616 the fatherless,3490 nor the widow,490 neither408 shed8210 innocent5355 blood1818 in this2088 place.4725

4  For3588 if518 ye do6213 853 this2088 thing1697 indeed,6213 then shall there enter in935 by the gates8179 of this2088 house1004 kings4428 sitting3427 upon5921 the throne3678 of David,1732 riding7392 in chariots7393 and on horses,5483 he,1931 and his servants,5650 and his people.5971

5  But if518 ye will not3808 hear8085 853 these428 words,1697 I swear7650 by myself, saith5002 the LORD,3068 that3588 this2088 house1004 shall become1961 a desolation.2723

6  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 unto5921 the king's4428 house1004 of Judah;3063 Thou859 art Gilead1568 unto me, and the head7218 of Lebanon:3844 yet surely518 3808 I will make7896 thee a wilderness,4057 and cities5892 which are not3808 inhabited.3427

7  And I will prepare6942 destroyers7843 against5921 thee, every one376 with his weapons:3627 and they shall cut down3772 thy choice4005 cedars,730 and cast5307 them into5921 the fire.784

8  And many7227 nations1471 shall pass5674 by5921 this2063 city,5892 and they shall say559 every man376 to413 his neighbor,7453 Wherefore5921 4100 hath the LORD3068 done6213 thus3602 unto this2063 great1419 city?5892

9  Then they shall answer,559 Because5921 834 they have forsaken5800 853 the covenant1285 of the LORD3068 their God,430 and worshiped7812 other312 gods,430 and served5647 them.

10  Weep1058 ye not408 for the dead,4191 neither408 bemoan5110 him: but weep sore1058 1058 for him that goeth away:1980 for3588 he shall return7725 no3808 more,5750 nor see7200 853 his native4138 country.776

11  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 touching413 Shallum7967 the son1121 of Josiah2977 king4428 of Judah,3063 which reigned4427 instead8478 of Josiah2977 his father,1 which834 went forth3318 out of4480 this2088 place;4725 He shall not3808 return7725 thither8033 any more:5750

12  But3588 he shall die4191 in the place4725 whither834 8033 they have led him captive,1540 853 and shall see7200 this2063 land776 no3808 more.5750

13  Woe1945 unto him that buildeth1129 his house1004 by unrighteousness,3808 6664 and his chambers5944 by wrong;3808 4941 that useth his neighbor's7453 service5647 without wages,2600 and giveth5414 him not3808 for his work;6467

14  That saith,559 I will build1129 me a wide4060 house1004 and large7304 chambers,5944 and cutteth him out7167 windows;2474 and it is ceiled5603 with cedar,730 and painted4886 with vermilion.8350

15  Shalt thou reign,4427 because3588 thou859 closest8474 thyself in cedar?730 did not3808 thy father1 eat398 and drink,8354 and do6213 judgment4941 and justice,6666 and then227 it was well2896 with him?

16  He judged1777 the cause1779 of the poor6041 and needy;34 then227 it was well2896 with him: was not3808 this1931 to know1847 me? saith5002 the LORD.3068

17  But3588 thine eyes5869 and thine heart3820 are not369 but for3588 518 5921 thy covetousness,1215 and for5921 to shed8210 innocent5355 blood,1818 and for5921 oppression,6233 and for5921 violence,4835 to do6213 it.

18  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 concerning413 Jehoiakim3079 the son1121 of Josiah2977 king4428 of Judah;3063 They shall not3808 lament5594 for him, saying, Ah1945 my brother!251 or, Ah1945 sister!269 they shall not3808 lament5594 for him, saying, Ah1945 lord!113 or, Ah1945 his glory!1935

19  He shall be buried6912 with the burial6900 of an ass,2543 drawn5498 and cast forth7993 beyond4480 1973 the gates8179 of Jerusalem.3389

20  Go up5927 to Lebanon,3844 and cry;6817 and lift up5414 thy voice6963 in Bashan,1316 and cry6817 from the passages:4480 5676 for3588 all3605 thy lovers157 are destroyed.7665

21  I spoke1696 unto413 thee in thy prosperity;7962 but thou saidst,559 I will not3808 hear.8085 This2088 hath been thy manner1870 from thy youth,4480 5271 that3588 thou obeyedst8085 not3808 my voice.6963

22  The wind7307 shall eat up7462 all3605 thy pastors,7462 and thy lovers157 shall go1980 into captivity:7628 surely3588 then227 shalt thou be ashamed954 and confounded3637 for all4480 3605 thy wickedness.7451

23  O inhabitant3427 of Lebanon,3844 that makest thy nest7077 in the cedars,730 how4100 gracious2603 shalt thou be when pangs2256 come935 upon thee, the pain2427 as of a woman in travail!3205

24  As I589 live,2416 saith5002 the LORD,3068 though3588 518 Coniah3659 the son1121 of Jehoiakim3079 king4428 of Judah3063 were1961 the signet2368 upon5921 my right3225 hand,3027 yet3588 would I pluck5423 thee thence;4480 8033

25  And I will give5414 thee into the hand3027 of them that seek1245 thy life,5315 and into the hand3027 of them whose834 face4480 6440 thou859 fearest,3016 even into the hand3027 of Nebuchadnezzar5019 king4428 of Babylon,894 and into the hand3027 of the Chaldeans.3778

26  And I will cast thee out,2904 853 and thy mother517 that834 bore3205 thee, into5921 another312 country,776 where834 8033 ye were not3808 born;3205 and there8033 shall ye die.4191

27  But to5921 the land776 whereunto834 8033 they1992 desire5375 853 5315 to return,7725 thither8033 shall they not3808 return.7725

28  Is this2088 man376 Coniah3659 a despised959 broken5310 idol?6089 is he a vessel3627 wherein is no369 pleasure?2656 wherefore4069 are they cast out,2904 he1931 and his seed,2233 and are cast7993 into5921 a land776 which834 they know3045 not?3808

29  O earth,776 earth,776 earth,776 hear8085 the word1697 of the LORD.3068

30  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Write3789 ye 853 this2088 man376 childless,6185 a man1397 that shall not3808 prosper6743 in his days:3117 for3588 no3808 man376 of his seed4480 2233 shall prosper,6743 sitting3427 upon5921 the throne3678 of David,1732 and ruling4910 any more5750 in Judah.3063


1 τάδε λέγει κύριος πορεύου καὶ κατάβηθι εἰς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ βασιλέως Ιουδα καὶ λαλήσεις ἐκεῖ τὸν λόγον τοῦτον

2 καὶ ἐρεῖς ἄκουε λόγον κυρίου βασιλεῦ Ιουδα ὁ καθήμενος ἐπὶ θρόνου Δαυιδ σὺ καὶ ὁ οἶκός σου καὶ ὁ λαός σου καὶ οἱ εἰσπορευόμενοι ταῖς πύλαις ταύταις

3 τάδε λέγει κύριος ποιεῖτε κρίσιν καὶ δικαιοσύνην καὶ ἐξαιρεῖσθε διηρπασμένον ἐκ χειρὸς ἀδικοῦντος αὐτὸν καὶ προσήλυτον καὶ ὀρφανὸν καὶ χήραν μὴ καταδυναστεύετε καὶ μὴ ἀσεβεῖτε καὶ αἷμα ἀθῷον μὴ ἐκχέητε ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ

4 διότι ἐὰν ποιοῦντες ποιήσητε τὸν λόγον τοῦτον καὶ εἰσελεύσονται ἐν ταῖς πύλαις τοῦ οἴκου τούτου βασιλεῖς καθήμενοι ἐπὶ θρόνου Δαυιδ καὶ ἐπιβεβηκότες ἐφ᾽ ἁρμάτων καὶ ἵππων αὐτοὶ καὶ οἱ παῖδες αὐτῶν καὶ ὁ λαὸς αὐτῶν

5 ἐὰν δὲ μὴ ποιήσητε τοὺς λόγους τούτους κατ᾽ ἐμαυτοῦ ὤμοσα λέγει κύριος ὅτι εἰς ἐρήμωσιν ἔσται ὁ οἶκος οὗτος

6 ὅτι τάδε λέγει κύριος κατὰ τοῦ οἴκου βασιλέως Ιουδα Γαλααδ σύ μοι ἀρχὴ τοῦ Λιβάνου ἐὰν μὴ θῶ σε εἰς ἔρημον πόλεις μὴ κατοικηθησομένας

7 καὶ ἐπάξω ἐπὶ σὲ ἄνδρα ὀλεθρεύοντα καὶ τὸν πέλεκυν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐκκόψουσιν τὰς ἐκλεκτὰς κέδρους σου καὶ ἐμβαλοῦσιν εἰς τὸ πῦρ

8 καὶ διελεύσονται ἔθνη διὰ τῆς πόλεως ταύτης καὶ ἐροῦσιν ἕκαστος πρὸς τὸν πλησίον αὐτοῦ διὰ τί ἐποίησεν κύριος οὕτως τῇ πόλει τῇ μεγάλῃ ταύτῃ

9 καὶ ἐροῦσιν ἀνθ᾽ ὧν ἐγκατέλιπον τὴν διαθήκην κυρίου θεοῦ αὐτῶν καὶ προσεκύνησαν θεοῖς ἀλλοτρίοις καὶ ἐδούλευσαν αὐτοῖς

10 μὴ κλαίετε τὸν τεθνηκότα μηδὲ θρηνεῖτε αὐτόν κλαύσατε κλαυθμῷ τὸν ἐκπορευόμενον ὅτι οὐκ ἐπιστρέψει ἔτι καὶ οὐ μὴ ἴδῃ τὴν γῆν πατρίδος αὐτοῦ

11 διότι τάδε λέγει κύριος ἐπὶ Σελλημ υἱὸν Ιωσια τὸν βασιλεύοντα ἀντὶ Ιωσια τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ὃς ἐξῆλθεν ἐκ τοῦ τόπου τούτου οὐκ ἀναστρέψει ἐκεῖ οὐκέτι

12 ἀλλ᾽ ἢ ἐν τῷ τόπῳ οὗ μετῴκισα αὐτόν ἐκεῖ ἀποθανεῖται καὶ τὴν γῆν ταύτην οὐκ ὄψεται ἔτι

13 ὦ ὁ οἰκοδομῶν οἰκίαν αὐτοῦ οὐ μετὰ δικαιοσύνης καὶ τὰ ὑπερῷα αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἐν κρίματι παρὰ τῷ πλησίον αὐτοῦ ἐργᾶται δωρεὰν καὶ τὸν μισθὸν αὐτοῦ οὐ μὴ ἀποδώσει αὐτῷ

14 ᾠκοδόμησας σεαυτῷ οἶκον σύμμετρον ὑπερῷα ῥιπιστὰ διεσταλμένα θυρίσιν καὶ ἐξυλωμένα ἐν κέδρῳ καὶ κεχρισμένα ἐν μίλτῳ

15 μὴ βασιλεύσεις ὅτι σὺ παροξύνῃ ἐν Αχαζ τῷ πατρί σου οὐ φάγονται καὶ οὐ πίονται βέλτιον ἦν σε ποιεῖν κρίμα καὶ δικαιοσύνην καλήν

16 οὐκ ἔγνωσαν οὐκ ἔκριναν κρίσιν ταπεινῷ οὐδὲ κρίσιν πένητος οὐ τοῦτό ἐστιν τὸ μὴ γνῶναί σε ἐμέ λέγει κύριος

17 ἰδοὺ οὔκ εἰσιν οἱ ὀφθαλμοί σου οὐδὲ ἡ καρδία σου καλή ἀλλ᾽ εἰς τὴν πλεονεξίαν σου καὶ εἰς τὸ αἷμα τὸ ἀθῷον τοῦ ἐκχέειν αὐτὸ καὶ εἰς ἀδίκημα καὶ εἰς φόνον τοῦ ποιεῖν

18 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει κύριος ἐπὶ Ιωακιμ υἱὸν Ιωσια βασιλέα Ιουδα οὐαὶ ἐπὶ τὸν ἄνδρα τοῦτον οὐ μὴ κόψωνται αὐτόν ὦ ἀδελφέ οὐδὲ μὴ κλαύσονται αὐτόν οἴμμοι κύριε

19 ταφὴν ὄνου ταφήσεται συμψησθεὶς ῥιφήσεται ἐπέκεινα τῆς πύλης Ιερουσαλημ

20 ἀνάβηθι εἰς τὸν Λίβανον καὶ κέκραξον καὶ εἰς τὴν Βασαν δὸς τὴν φωνήν σου καὶ βόησον εἰς τὸ πέραν τῆς θαλάσσης ὅτι συνετρίβησαν πάντες οἱ ἐρασταί σου

21 ἐλάλησα πρὸς σὲ ἐν τῇ παραπτώσει σου καὶ εἶπας οὐκ ἀκούσομαι αὕτη ἡ ὁδός σου ἐκ νεότητός σου οὐκ ἤκουσας τῆς φωνῆς μου

22 πάντας τοὺς ποιμένας σου ποιμανεῖ ἄνεμος καὶ οἱ ἐρασταί σου ἐν αἰχμαλωσίᾳ ἐξελεύσονται ὅτι τότε αἰσχυνθήσῃ καὶ ἀτιμωθήσῃ ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν φιλούντων σε

23 κατοικοῦσα ἐν τῷ Λιβάνῳ ἐννοσσεύουσα ἐν ταῖς κέδροις καταστενάξεις ἐν τῷ ἐλθεῖν σοι ὠδῖνας ὡς τικτούσης

24 ζῶ ἐγώ λέγει κύριος ἐὰν γενόμενος γένηται Ιεχονιας υἱὸς Ιωακιμ βασιλεὺς Ιουδα ἀποσφράγισμα ἐπὶ τῆς χειρὸς τῆς δεξιᾶς μου ἐκεῖθεν ἐκσπάσω σε

25 καὶ παραδώσω σε εἰς χεῖρας τῶν ζητούντων τὴν ψυχήν σου ὧν σὺ εὐλαβῇ ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτῶν εἰς χεῖρας τῶν Χαλδαίων

26 καὶ ἀπορρίψω σὲ καὶ τὴν μητέρα σου τὴν τεκοῦσάν σε εἰς γῆν οὗ οὐκ ἐτέχθης ἐκεῖ καὶ ἐκεῖ ἀποθανεῖσθε

27 εἰς δὲ τὴν γῆν ἣν αὐτοὶ εὔχονται ταῖς ψυχαῖς αὐτῶν οὐ μὴ ἀποστρέψωσιν

28 ἠτιμώθη Ιεχονιας ὡς σκεῦος οὗ οὐκ ἔστιν χρεία αὐτοῦ ὅτι ἐξερρίφη καὶ ἐξεβλήθη εἰς γῆν ἣν οὐκ ᾔδει

29 γῆ γῆ ἄκουε λόγον κυρίου

30 γράψον τὸν ἄνδρα τοῦτον ἐκκήρυκτον ἄνθρωπον ὅτι οὐ μὴ αὐξηθῇ ἐκ τοῦ σπέρματος αὐτοῦ ἀνὴρ καθήμενος ἐπὶ θρόνου Δαυιδ ἄρχων ἔτι ἐν τῷ Ιουδα

1 Hæc dicit Dominus: Descende in domum regis Juda, et loqueris ibi verbum hoc,

2 et dices: [Audi verbum Domini, rex Juda,
qui sedes super solium David:
tu et servi tui, et populus tuus,
qui ingredimini per portas istas.

3 Hæc dicit Dominus:
Facite judicium et justitiam,
et liberate vi oppressum de manu calumniatoris:
et advenam, et pupillum, et viduam
nolite contristare, neque opprimatis inique,
et sanguinem innocentem ne effundatis in loco isto.

4 Si enim facientes feceritis verbum istud,
ingredientur per portas domus hujus
reges sedentes de genere David super thronum ejus,
et ascendentes currus et equos,
ipsi, et servi, et populus eorum.

5 Quod si non audieritis verba hæc:
in memetipso juravi, dicit Dominus,
quia in solitudinem erit domus hæc.

6 Quia hæc dicit Dominus super domum regis Juda:
Galaad, tu mihi caput Libani,
si non posuero te solitudinem, urbes inhabitabiles!

7 Et sanctificabo super te, interficientem virum et arma ejus:
et succident electas cedros tuas,
et præcipitabunt in ignem.

8 Et pertransibunt gentes multæ per civitatem hanc,
et dicet unusquisque proximo suo:
Quare fecit Dominus sic civitati huic grandi?

9 Et respondebunt:
Eo quod dereliquerint pactum Domini Dei sui,
et adoraverint deos alienos, et servierint eis.

10 Nolite flere mortuum,
neque lugeatis super eum fletu:
plangite eum qui egreditur,
quia non revertetur ultra,
nec videbit terram nativitatis suæ.

11 Quia hæc dicit Dominus ad Sellum,
filium Josiæ, regem Juda,
qui regnavit pro Josia patre suo,
qui egressus est de loco isto:
Non revertetur huc amplius,

12 sed in loco ad quem transtuli eum, ibi morietur,
et terram istam non videbit amplius.

13 Væ qui ædificat domum suam in injustitia,
et cœnacula sua non in judicio:
amicum suum opprimet frustra,
et mercedem ejus non reddet ei:

14 qui dicit: Ædificabo mihi domum latam,
et cœnacula spatiosa:
qui aperit sibi fenestras et facit laquearia cedrina,
pingitque sinopide.

15 Numquid regnabis quoniam confers te cedro?
pater tuus numquid non comedit et bibit,
et fecit judicium et justitiam tunc cum bene erat ei?

16 Judicavit causam pauperis et egeni in bonum suum:
numquid non ideo quia cognovit me? dicit Dominus.

17 Tui vero oculi et cor ad avaritiam,
et ad sanguinem innocentem fundendum,
et ad calumniam, et ad cursum mali operis.

18 Propterea hæc dicit Dominus ad Joakim,
filium Josiæ, regem Juda:
Non plangent eum: Væ frater! et væ soror!
non concrepabunt ei: Væ domine! et væ inclyte!

19 Sepultura asini sepelietur,
putrefactus et projectus extra portas Jerusalem.]

20 [Ascende Libanum, et clama,
et in Basan da vocem tuam:
et clama ad transeuntes,
quia contriti sunt omnes amatores tui.

21 Locutus sum ad te in abundantia tua,
et dixisti: Non audiam:
hæc est via tua ab adolescentia tua,
quia non audisti vocem meam.

22 Omnes pastores tuos pascet ventus,
et amatores tui in captivitatem ibunt:
et tunc confunderis,
et erubesces ab omni malitia tua.

23 Quæ sedes in Libano,
et nidificas in cedris,
quomodo congemuisti cum venissent tibi dolores,
quasi dolores parturientis?

24 Vivo ego, dicit Dominus,
quia si fuerit Jechonias filius Joakim regis Juda
annulus in manu dextera mea,
inde evellam eum,

25 et dabo te in manu quærentium animam tuam,
et in manu quorum tu formidas faciem,
et in manu Nabuchodonosor regis Babylonis,
et in manu Chaldæorum:

26 et mittam te, et matrem tuam quæ genuit te,
in terram alienam, in qua nati non estis,
ibique moriemini.

27 Et in terram ad quam ipsi levant animam suam ut revertantur illuc,
non revertentur.

28 Numquid vas fictile atque contritum
vir iste Jechonias?
numquid vas absque omni voluptate?
quare abjecti sunt ipse et semen ejus,
et projecti in terram quam ignoraverunt?

29 Terra, terra, terra, audi sermonem Domini.

30 Hæc dicit Dominus:
Scribe virum istum sterilem,
virum qui in diebus suis non prosperabitur:
nec enim erit de semine ejus vir
qui sedeat super solium David,
et potestatem habeat ultra in Juda.]
