Jeremiah 41


1  Now it came to pass1961 in the seventh7637 month,2320 that Ishmael3458 the son1121 of Nethaniah5418 the son1121 of Elishama,476 of the seed4480 2233 royal,4410 and the princes7227 of the king,4428 even ten6235 men376 with854 him, came935 unto413 Gedaliah1436 the son1121 of Ahikam296 to Mizpah;4708 and there8033 they did eat398 bread3899 together3162 in Mizpah.4709

2  Then arose6965 Ishmael3458 the son1121 of Nethaniah,5418 and the ten6235 men376 that834 were1961 with854 him, and smote5221 853 Gedaliah1436 the son1121 of Ahikam296 the son1121 of Shaphan8227 with the sword,2719 and slew4191 him, whom834 the king4428 of Babylon894 had made governor6485 over the land.776

3  Ishmael3458 also slew5221 all3605 the Jews3064 that834 were1961 with854 him, even with854 Gedaliah,1436 at Mizpah,4709 and the Chaldeans3778 that834 were found4672 there,8033 and the men376 of war.4421

4  And it came to pass1961 the second8145 day3117 after he had slain4191 853 Gedaliah,1436 and no3808 man376 knew3045 it,

5  That there came935 certain376 from Shechem,4480 7927 from Shiloh,4480 7887 and from Samaria,4480 8111 even fourscore8084 men,376 having their beards2206 shaven,1548 and their clothes899 rent,7167 and having cut themselves,1413 with offerings4503 and incense3828 in their hand,3027 to bring935 them to the house1004 of the LORD.3068

6  And Ishmael3458 the son1121 of Nethaniah5418 went forth3318 from4480 Mizpah4709 to meet7125 them, weeping1058 all along as he went:1980 1980 and it came to pass,1961 as he met6298 them, he said559 unto413 them, Come935 to413 Gedaliah1436 the son1121 of Ahikam.296

7  And it was1961 so, when they came935 into413 the midst8432 of the city,5892 that Ishmael3458 the son1121 of Nethaniah5418 slew7819 them, and cast them into413 the midst8432 of the pit,953 he,1931 and the men376 that834 were with854 him.

8  But ten6235 men376 were found4672 among them that said559 unto413 Ishmael,3458 Slay4191 us not:408 for3588 we have3426 treasures4301 in the field,7704 of wheat,2406 and of barley,8184 and of oil,8081 and of honey.1706 So he forbear,2308 and slew4191 them not3808 among8432 their brethren.251

9  Now the pit953 wherein834 8033 Ishmael3458 had cast7993 853 all3605 the dead bodies6297 of the men,376 whom834 he had slain5221 because3027 of Gedaliah,1436 was it1931 which834 Asa609 the king4428 had made6213 for fear4480 6440 of Baasha1201 king4428 of Israel:3478 and Ishmael3458 the son1121 of Nethaniah5418 filled4390 it with them that were slain.2491

10  Then Ishmael3458 carried away captive7617 853 all3605 the residue7611 of the people5971 that834 were in Mizpah,4709 even 853 the king's4428 daughters,1323 and all3605 the people5971 that remained7604 in Mizpah,4709 whom834 Nebuzaradan5018 the captain7227 of the guard2876 had committed6485 to 853 Gedaliah1436 the son1121 of Ahikam:296 and Ishmael3458 the son1121 of Nethaniah5418 carried them away captive,7617 and departed1980 to go over5674 to413 the Ammonites.1121 5983

11  But when Johanan3110 the son1121 of Kareah,7143 and all3605 the captains8269 of the forces2428 that834 were with854 him, heard8085 of 853 all3605 the evil7451 that834 Ishmael3458 the son1121 of Nethaniah5418 had done,6213

12  Then they took3947 853 all3605 the men,376 and went1980 to fight3898 with5973 Ishmael3458 the son1121 of Nethaniah,5418 and found4672 him by413 the great7227 waters4325 that834 are in Gibeon.1391

13  Now it came to pass,1961 that when all3605 the people5971 which834 were with854 Ishmael3458 saw7200 853 Johanan3110 the son1121 of Kareah,7143 and all3605 the captains8269 of the forces2428 that834 were with854 him, then they were glad.8055

14  So all3605 the people5971 that834 Ishmael3458 had carried away captive7617 from4480 Mizpah4709 cast about5437 and returned,7725 and went1980 unto413 Johanan3110 the son1121 of Kareah.7143

15  But Ishmael3458 the son1121 of Nethaniah5418 escaped4422 from4480 6440 Johanan3110 with eight8083 men,376 and went1980 to413 the Ammonites.1121 5983

16  Then took3947 Johanan3110 the son1121 of Kareah,7143 and all3605 the captains8269 of the forces2428 that834 were with854 him, 853 all3605 the remnant7611 of the people5971 whom834 he had recovered7725 from4480 854 Ishmael3458 the son1121 of Nethaniah,5418 from4480 Mizpah,4709 after310 that he had slain5221 853 Gedaliah1436 the son1121 of Ahikam,296 even mighty1397 men376 of war,4421 and the women,802 and the children,2945 and the eunuchs,5631 whom834 he had brought again7725 from Gibeon:4480 1391

17  And they departed,1980 and dwelt3427 in the habitation1628 of Chimham,3643 which834 is by681 Bethlehem,1035 to go1980 to enter into935 Egypt,4714

18  Because4480 6440 of the Chaldeans:3778 for3588 they were afraid3372 of4480 6440 them, because3588 Ishmael3458 the son1121 of Nethaniah5418 had slain5221 853 Gedaliah1436 the son1121 of Ahikam,296 whom834 the king4428 of Babylon894 made governor6485 in the land.776


1 ὁ λόγος ὁ γενόμενος πρὸς Ιερεμιαν παρὰ κυρίου καὶ Ναβουχοδονοσορ βασιλεὺς Βαβυλῶνος καὶ πᾶν τὸ στρατόπεδον αὐτοῦ καὶ πᾶσα ἡ γῆ ἀρχῆς αὐτοῦ ἐπολέμουν ἐπὶ Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἐπὶ πάσας τὰς πόλεις Ιουδα λέγων

2 οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος βάδισον πρὸς Σεδεκιαν βασιλέα Ιουδα καὶ ἐρεῖς αὐτῷ οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος παραδόσει παραδοθήσεται ἡ πόλις αὕτη εἰς χεῖρας βασιλέως Βαβυλῶνος καὶ συλλήμψεται αὐτὴν καὶ καύσει αὐτὴν ἐν πυρί

3 καὶ σὺ οὐ μὴ σωθῇς ἐκ χειρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ συλλήμψει συλλημφθήσῃ καὶ εἰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ δοθήσῃ καὶ οἱ ὀφθαλμοί σου τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ ὄψονται καὶ τὸ στόμα αὐτοῦ μετὰ τοῦ στόματός σου λαλήσει καὶ εἰς Βαβυλῶνα εἰσελεύσῃ

4 ἀλλὰ ἄκουσον τὸν λόγον κυρίου Σεδεκια βασιλεῦ Ιουδα οὕτως λέγει κύριος

5 ἐν εἰρήνῃ ἀποθανῇ καὶ ὡς ἔκλαυσαν τοὺς πατέρας σου τοὺς βασιλεύσαντας πρότερόν σου κλαύσονται καὶ σὲ καὶ ὦ αδων κόψονταί σε ὅτι λόγον ἐγὼ ἐλάλησα εἶπεν κύριος

6 καὶ ἐλάλησεν Ιερεμιας πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα Σεδεκιαν πάντας τοὺς λόγους τούτους ἐν Ιερουσαλημ

7 καὶ ἡ δύναμις βασιλέως Βαβυλῶνος ἐπολέμει ἐπὶ Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἐπὶ τὰς πόλεις Ιουδα ἐπὶ Λαχις καὶ ἐπὶ Αζηκα ὅτι αὗται κατελείφθησαν ἐν πόλεσιν Ιουδα πόλεις ὀχυραί

8 ὁ λόγος ὁ γενόμενος πρὸς Ιερεμιαν παρὰ κυρίου μετὰ τὸ συντελέσαι τὸν βασιλέα Σεδεκιαν διαθήκην πρὸς τὸν λαὸν τοῦ καλέσαι ἄφεσιν

9 τοῦ ἐξαποστεῖλαι ἕκαστον τὸν παῖδα αὐτοῦ καὶ ἕκαστον τὴν παιδίσκην αὐτοῦ τὸν Εβραῖον καὶ τὴν Εβραίαν ἐλευθέρους πρὸς τὸ μὴ δουλεύειν ἄνδρα ἐξ Ιουδα

10 καὶ ἐπεστράφησαν πάντες οἱ μεγιστᾶνες καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς οἱ εἰσελθόντες ἐν τῇ διαθήκῃ τοῦ ἀποστεῖλαι ἕκαστον τὸν παῖδα αὐτοῦ καὶ ἕκαστον τὴν παιδίσκην αὐτοῦ

11 καὶ ἔωσαν αὐτοὺς εἰς παῖδας καὶ παιδίσκας

12 καὶ ἐγενήθη λόγος κυρίου πρὸς Ιερεμιαν λέγων

13 οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ ἐγὼ ἐθέμην διαθήκην πρὸς τοὺς πατέρας ὑμῶν ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ᾗ ἐξειλάμην αὐτοὺς ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου ἐξ οἴκου δουλείας λέγων

14 ὅταν πληρωθῇ ἓξ ἔτη ἀποστελεῖς τὸν ἀδελφόν σου τὸν Εβραῖον ὃς πραθήσεταί σοι καὶ ἐργᾶταί σοι ἓξ ἔτη καὶ ἐξαποστελεῖς αὐτὸν ἐλεύθερον καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσάν μου καὶ οὐκ ἔκλιναν τὸ οὖς αὐτῶν

15 καὶ ἐπέστρεψαν σήμερον ποιῆσαι τὸ εὐθὲς πρὸ ὀφθαλμῶν μου τοῦ καλέσαι ἄφεσιν ἕκαστον τοῦ πλησίον αὐτοῦ καὶ συνετέλεσαν διαθήκην κατὰ πρόσωπόν μου ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ οὗ ἐπεκλήθη τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐπ᾽ αὐτῷ

16 καὶ ἐπεστρέψατε καὶ ἐβεβηλώσατε τὸ ὄνομά μου τοῦ ἐπιστρέψαι ἕκαστον τὸν παῖδα αὐτοῦ καὶ ἕκαστον τὴν παιδίσκην αὐτοῦ οὓς ἐξαπεστείλατε ἐλευθέρους τῇ ψυχῇ αὐτῶν ὑμῖν εἰς παῖδας καὶ παιδίσκας

17 διὰ τοῦτο οὕτως εἶπεν κύριος ὑμεῖς οὐκ ἠκούσατέ μου τοῦ καλέσαι ἄφεσιν ἕκαστος πρὸς τὸν πλησίον αὐτοῦ ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ καλῶ ἄφεσιν ὑμῖν εἰς μάχαιραν καὶ εἰς τὸν θάνατον καὶ εἰς τὸν λιμὸν καὶ δώσω ὑμᾶς εἰς διασπορὰν πάσαις ταῖς βασιλείαις τῆς γῆς

18 καὶ δώσω τοὺς ἄνδρας τοὺς παρεληλυθότας τὴν διαθήκην μου τοὺς μὴ στήσαντας τὴν διαθήκην μου ἣν ἐποίησαν κατὰ πρόσωπόν μου τὸν μόσχον ὃν ἐποίησαν ἐργάζεσθαι αὐτῷ

19 τοὺς ἄρχοντας Ιουδα καὶ τοὺς δυνάστας καὶ τοὺς ἱερεῖς καὶ τὸν λαόν

20 καὶ δώσω αὐτοὺς τοῖς ἐχθροῖς αὐτῶν καὶ ἔσται τὰ θνησιμαῖα αὐτῶν βρῶσις τοῖς πετεινοῖς τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ τοῖς θηρίοις τῆς γῆς

21 καὶ τὸν Σεδεκιαν βασιλέα τῆς Ιουδαίας καὶ τοὺς ἄρχοντας αὐτῶν δώσω εἰς χεῖρας ἐχθρῶν αὐτῶν καὶ δύναμις βασιλέως Βαβυλῶνος τοῖς ἀποτρέχουσιν ἀπ᾽ αὐτῶν

22 ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ συντάσσω φησὶν κύριος καὶ ἐπιστρέψω αὐτοὺς εἰς τὴν γῆν ταύτην καὶ πολεμήσουσιν ἐπ᾽ αὐτὴν καὶ λήμψονται αὐτὴν καὶ κατακαύσουσιν αὐτὴν ἐν πυρὶ καὶ τὰς πόλεις Ιουδα καὶ δώσω αὐτὰς ἐρήμους ἀπὸ κατοικούντων

1 Et factum est in mense septimo, venit Ismahel filius Nathaniæ filii Elisama, de semine regali, et optimates regis, et decem viri cum eo, ad Godoliam filium Ahicam, in Masphath, et comederunt ibi panes simul in Masphath.

2 Surrexit autem Ismahel filius Nathaniæ, et decem viri qui cum eo erant, et percusserunt Godoliam filium Ahicam filii Saphan gladio, et interfecerunt eum quem præfecerat rex Babylonis terræ.

3 Omnes quoque Judæos qui erant cum Godolia in Masphath, et Chaldæos qui reperti sunt ibi, et viros bellatores, percussit Ismahel.

4 Secundo autem die postquam occiderat Godoliam, nullo adhuc sciente,

5 venerunt viri de Sichem, et de Silo, et de Samaria, octoginta viri, rasi barba, et scissis vestibus, et squallentes: et munera et thus habebant in manu, ut offerrent in domo Domini.

6 Egressus ergo Ismahel filius Nathaniæ in occursum eorum de Masphath, incedens et plorans ibat: cum autem occurrisset eis, dixit ad eos: Venite ad Godoliam filium Ahicam.

7 Qui cum venissent ad medium civitatis, interfecit eos Ismahel filius Nathaniæ circa medium laci, ipse et viri qui erant cum eo.

8 Decem autem viri reperti sunt inter eos, qui dixerunt ad Ismahel: Noli occidere nos, quia habemus thesauros in agro, frumenti, et hordei, et olei, et mellis: et cessavit, et non interfecit eos cum fratribus suis.

9 Lacus autem in quem projecerat Ismahel omnia cadavera virorum quos percussit propter Godoliam, ipse est quem fecit rex Asa propter Baasa regem Israël: ipsum replevit Ismahel filius Nathaniæ occisis.

10 Et captivas duxit Ismahel omnes reliquias populi qui erant in Masphath, filias regis, et universum populum qui remanserat in Masphath, quos commendaverat Nabuzardan princeps militiæ, Godoliæ filio Ahicam: et cepit eos Ismahel filius Nathaniæ, et abiit ut transiret ad filios Ammon.

11 Audivit autem Johanan filius Caree, et omnes principes bellatorum qui erant cum eo, omne malum quod fecerat Ismahel filius Nathaniæ,

12 et assumptis universis viris, profecti sunt ut bellarent adversum Ismahel filium Nathaniæ: et invenerunt eum ad aquas multas quæ sunt in Gabaon.

13 Cumque vidisset omnis populus qui erat cum Ismahel Johanan filium Caree, et universos principes bellatorum qui erant cum eo, lætati sunt:

14 et reversus est omnis populus quem ceperat Ismahel, in Masphath, reversusque abiit ad Johanan filium Caree.

15 Ismahel autem filius Nathaniæ fugit cum octo viris a facie Johanan, et abiit ad filios Ammon.

16 Tulit ergo Johanan filius Caree, et omnes principes bellatorum qui erant cum eo, universas reliquias vulgi quas reduxerat ab Ismahel filio Nathaniæ de Masphath, postquam percussit Godoliam filium Ahicam: fortes viros ad prælium, et mulieres, et pueros, et eunuchos, quos reduxerat de Gabaon.

17 Et abierunt, et sederunt peregrinantes in Chamaam, quæ est juxta Bethlehem, ut pergerent, et introirent Ægyptum,

18 a facie Chaldæorum: timebant enim eos, quia percusserat Ismahel filius Nathaniæ Godoliam filium Ahicam, quem præposuerat rex Babylonis in terra Juda.
