Jeremiah 48


1  Against Moab4124 thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 the God430 of Israel;3478 Woe1945 unto413 Nebo!5015 for3588 it is spoiled:7703 Kiriathaim7156 is confounded3001 and taken:3920 Misgab4869 is confounded3001 and dismayed.2865

2  There shall be no369 more5750 praise8416 of Moab:4124 in Heshbon2809 they have devised2803 evil7451 against5921 it; come,1980 and let us cut it off3772 from being a nation.4480 1471 Also1571 thou shalt be cut down,1826 O Madmen;4086 the sword2719 shall pursue1980 310 thee.

3  A voice6963 of crying6818 shall be from Horonaim,4480 2773 spoiling7701 and great1419 destruction.7667

4  Moab4124 is destroyed;7665 her little ones6810 have caused a cry2201 to be heard.8085

5  For3588 in the going up4608 of Luhith3872 continual weeping1065 1065 shall go up;5927 for3588 in the going down4174 of Horonaim2773 the enemies6862 have heard8085 a cry6818 of destruction.7667

6  Flee,5127 save4422 your lives,5315 and be1961 like the heath6176 in the wilderness.4057

7  For3588 because3282 thou hast trusted982 in thy works4639 and in thy treasures,214 thou859 shalt also1571 be taken:3920 and Chemosh3645 shall go forth3318 into captivity1473 with his priests3548 and his princes8269 together.3162

8  And the spoiler7703 shall come935 upon413 every3605 city,5892 and no3808 city5892 shall escape:4422 the valley6010 also shall perish,6 and the plain4334 shall be destroyed,8045 as834 the LORD3068 hath spoken.559

9  Give5414 wings6731 unto Moab,4124 that3588 it may flee5323 and get away:3318 for the cities5892 thereof shall be1961 desolate,8047 without any4480 369 to dwell3427 therein.2004

10  Cursed779 be he that doeth6213 the work4399 of the LORD3068 deceitfully,7423 and cursed779 be he that keepeth back4513 his sword2719 from blood.4480 1818

11  Moab4124 hath been at ease7599 from his youth,4480 5271 and he1931 hath settled8252 on413 his lees,8105 and hath not3808 been emptied7324 from vessel4480 3627 to413 vessel,3627 neither3808 hath he gone1980 into captivity:1473 therefore5921 3651 his taste2940 remained5975 in him, and his scent7381 is not3808 changed.4171

12  Therefore,3651 behold,2009 the days3117 come,935 saith5002 the LORD,3068 that I will send7971 unto him wanderers,6808 that shall cause him to wander,6808 and shall empty7324 his vessels,3627 and break5310 their bottles.5035

13  And Moab4124 shall be ashamed954 of Chemosh,4480 3645 as834 the house1004 of Israel3478 was ashamed954 of Bethel4480 1008 their confidence.4009

14  How349 say559 ye, We587 are mighty1368 and strong2428 men376 for the war?4421

15  Moab4124 is spoiled,7703 and gone up5927 out of her cities,5892 and his chosen4005 young men970 are gone down3381 to the slaughter,2874 saith5002 the King,4428 whose name8034 is the LORD3068 of hosts.6635

16  The calamity343 of Moab4124 is near7138 to come,935 and his affliction7451 hasteth4116 fast.3966

17  All3605 ye that are about5439 him, bemoan5110 him; and all3605 ye that know3045 his name,8034 say,559 How349 is the strong5797 staff4294 broken,7665 and the beautiful8597 rod!4731

18  Thou daughter1323 that dost inhabit3427 Dibon,1769 come down3381 from thy glory,4480 3519 and sit3427 in thirst;6772 for3588 the spoiler7703 of Moab4124 shall come5927 upon thee, and he shall destroy7843 thy strongholds.4013

19  O inhabitant3427 of Aroer,6177 stand5975 by413 the way,1870 and espy;6822 ask7592 him that fleeth,5127 and her that escapeth,4422 and say,559 What4100 is1961 done?

20  Moab4124 is confounded;3001 for3588 it is broken down:2865 howl3213 and cry;2199 tell5046 ye it in Arnon,769 that3588 Moab4124 is spoiled,7703

21  And judgment4941 is come935 upon413 the plain4334 country;776 upon413 Holon,2473 and upon413 Jahazah,3096 and upon5921 Mephaath,4158

22  And upon5921 Dibon,1769 and upon5921 Nebo,5015 and upon5921 Beth-diblathaim,1015

23  And upon5921 Kiriathaim,7156 and upon5921 Beth-gamul,1014 and upon5921 Bethmeon,1010

24  And upon5921 Kerioth,7152 and upon5921 Bozrah,1224 and upon5921 all3605 the cities5892 of the land776 of Moab,4124 far7350 or near.7138

25  The horn7161 of Moab4124 is cut off,1438 and his arm2220 is broken,7665 saith5002 the LORD.3068

26  Make ye him drunken:7937 for3588 he magnified1431 himself against5921 the LORD:3068 Moab4124 also shall wallow5606 in his vomit,6892 and he1931 also1571 shall be1961 in derision.7814

27  For518 was1961 not3808 Israel3478 a derision7814 unto thee? was he found4672 among thieves?1590 for3588 since4480 1767 thou spakest1697 of him, thou skippedst for joy.5110

28  O ye that dwell3427 in Moab,4124 leave5800 the cities,5892 and dwell7931 in the rock,5553 and be1961 like the dove3123 that maketh her nest7077 in the sides5676 of the hole's6354 mouth.6310

29  We have heard8085 the pride1347 of Moab,4124 (he is exceeding3966 proud)1343 his loftiness,1363 and his arrogance,1347 and his pride,1346 and the haughtiness7312 of his heart.3820

30  I589 know3045 his wrath,5678 saith5002 the LORD;3068 but it shall not3808 be so;3651 his lies907 shall not3808 so3651 effect6213 it.

31  Therefore5921 3651 will I howl3213 for5921 Moab,4124 and I will cry out2199 for all3605 Moab;4124 mine heart shall mourn1897 for413 the men376 of Kir-heres.7025

32  O vine1612 of Sibmah,7643 I will weep1058 for thee with the weeping4480 1065 of Jazer:3270 thy plants5189 are gone over5674 the sea,3220 they reach5060 even to5704 the sea3220 of Jazer:3270 the spoiler7703 is fallen5307 upon5921 thy summer fruits7019 and upon5921 thy vintage.1210

33  And joy8057 and gladness1524 is taken622 from the plentiful field,4480 3759 and from the land4480 776 of Moab;4124 and I have caused wine3196 to fail7673 from the winepresses:4480 3342 none3808 shall tread1869 with shouting;1959 their shouting1959 shall be no3808 shouting.1959

34  From the cry4480 2201 of Heshbon2809 even unto5704 Elealeh,500 and even unto5704 Jahaz,3096 have they uttered5414 their voice,6963 from Zoar4480 6820 even unto5704 Horonaim,2773 as a heifer5697 of three years old:7992 for3588 the waters4325 also1571 of Nimrim5249 shall be1961 desolate.4923

35  Moreover I will cause to cease7673 in Moab,4124 saith5002 the LORD,3068 him that offereth5927 in the high places,1116 and him that burneth incense6999 to his gods.430

36  Therefore5921 3651 mine heart3820 shall sound1993 for Moab4124 like pipes,2485 and mine heart3820 shall sound1993 like pipes2485 for413 the men376 of Kir-heres:7025 because5921 3651 the riches3502 that he hath gotten6213 are perished.6

37  For3588 every3605 head7218 shall be bald,7144 and every3605 beard2206 clipped:1639 upon5921 all3605 the hands3027 shall be cuttings,1418 and upon5921 the loins4975 sackcloth.8242

38  There shall be lamentation4553 generally3605 upon5921 all3605 the housetops1406 of Moab,4124 and in the streets7339 thereof: for3588 I have broken7665 853 Moab4124 like a vessel3627 wherein is no369 pleasure,2656 saith5002 the LORD.3068

39  They shall howl,3213 saying, How349 is it broken down!2865 how349 hath Moab4124 turned6437 the back6203 with shame!954 so shall Moab4124 be1961 a derision7814 and a dismaying4288 to all3605 them about5439 him.

40  For3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD;3068 Behold,2009 he shall fly1675 as an eagle,5404 and shall spread6566 his wings3671 over413 Moab.4124

41  Kerioth7152 is taken,3920 and the strongholds4679 are surprised,8610 and the mighty men's1368 hearts3820 in Moab4124 at that1931 day3117 shall be1961 as the heart3820 of a woman802 in her pangs.6887

42  And Moab4124 shall be destroyed8045 from being a people,4480 5971 because3588 he hath magnified1431 himself against5921 the LORD.3068

43  Fear,6343 and the pit,6354 and the snare,6341 shall be upon5921 thee, O inhabitant3427 of Moab,4124 saith5002 the LORD.3068

44  He that fleeth5211 from4480 6440 the fear6343 shall fall5307 into413 the pit;6354 and he that getteth up5927 out of4480 the pit6354 shall be taken3920 in the snare:6341 for3588 I will bring935 upon413 it, even upon413 Moab,4124 the year8141 of their visitation,6486 saith5002 the LORD.3068

45  They that fled5127 stood5975 under the shadow6738 of Heshbon2809 because of the force:4480 3581 but3588 a fire784 shall come forth3318 out of Heshbon,4480 2809 and a flame3852 from the midst4480 996 of Sihon,5511 and shall devour398 the corner6285 of Moab,4124 and the crown of the head6936 of the tumultuous7588 ones.1121

46  Woe188 be unto thee, O Moab!4124 the people5971 of Chemosh3645 perisheth:6 for3588 thy sons1121 are taken3947 captives,7628 and thy daughters1323 captives.7633

47  Yet will I bring again7725 the captivity7622 of Moab4124 in the latter319 days,3117 saith5002 the LORD.3068 Thus2008 far5704 is the judgment4941 of Moab.4124


1 καὶ ἐγένετο τῷ μηνὶ τῷ ἑβδόμῳ ἦλθεν Ισμαηλ υἱὸς Ναθανιου υἱοῦ Ελασα ἀπὸ γένους τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ δέκα ἄνδρες μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ πρὸς Γοδολιαν εἰς Μασσηφα καὶ ἔφαγον ἐκεῖ ἄρτον ἅμα

2 καὶ ἀνέστη Ισμαηλ καὶ οἱ δέκα ἄνδρες οἳ ἦσαν μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπάταξαν τὸν Γοδολιαν ὃν κατέστησεν βασιλεὺς Βαβυλῶνος ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς

3 καὶ πάντας τοὺς Ιουδαίους τοὺς ὄντας μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἐν Μασσηφα καὶ πάντας τοὺς Χαλδαίους τοὺς εὑρεθέντας ἐκεῖ

4 καὶ ἐγένετο τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ δευτέρᾳ πατάξαντος αὐτοῦ τὸν Γοδολιαν καὶ ἄνθρωπος οὐκ ἔγνω

5 καὶ ἤλθοσαν ἄνδρες ἀπὸ Συχεμ καὶ ἀπὸ Σαλημ καὶ ἀπὸ Σαμαρείας ὀγδοήκοντα ἄνδρες ἐξυρημένοι πώγωνας καὶ διερρηγμένοι τὰ ἱμάτια καὶ κοπτόμενοι καὶ μαναα καὶ λίβανος ἐν χερσὶν αὐτῶν τοῦ εἰσενεγκεῖν εἰς οἶκον κυρίου

6 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν εἰς ἀπάντησιν αὐτοῖς Ισμαηλ αὐτοὶ ἐπορεύοντο καὶ ἔκλαιον καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς εἰσέλθετε πρὸς Γοδολιαν

7 καὶ ἐγένετο εἰσελθόντων αὐτῶν εἰς τὸ μέσον τῆς πόλεως ἔσφαξεν αὐτοὺς εἰς τὸ φρέαρ

8 καὶ δέκα ἄνδρες εὑρέθησαν ἐκεῖ καὶ εἶπαν τῷ Ισμαηλ μὴ ἀνέλῃς ἡμᾶς ὅτι εἰσὶν ἡμῖν θησαυροὶ ἐν ἀγρῷ πυροὶ καὶ κριθαί μέλι καὶ ἔλαιον καὶ παρῆλθεν καὶ οὐκ ἀνεῖλεν αὐτοὺς ἐν μέσῳ τῶν ἀδελφῶν αὐτῶν

9 καὶ τὸ φρέαρ εἰς ὃ ἔρριψεν ἐκεῖ Ισμαηλ πάντας οὓς ἐπάταξεν φρέαρ μέγα τοῦτό ἐστιν ὃ ἐποίησεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ασα ἀπὸ προσώπου Βαασα βασιλέως Ισραηλ τοῦτο ἐνέπλησεν Ισμαηλ τραυματιῶν

10 καὶ ἀπέστρεψεν Ισμαηλ πάντα τὸν λαὸν τὸν καταλειφθέντα εἰς Μασσηφα καὶ τὰς θυγατέρας τοῦ βασιλέως ἃς παρεκατέθετο ὁ ἀρχιμάγειρος τῷ Γοδολια υἱῷ Αχικαμ καὶ ᾤχετο εἰς τὸ πέραν υἱῶν Αμμων

11 καὶ ἤκουσεν Ιωαναν υἱὸς Καρηε καὶ πάντες οἱ ἡγεμόνες τῆς δυνάμεως οἱ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ πάντα τὰ κακά ἃ ἐποίησεν Ισμαηλ

12 καὶ ἤγαγον ἅπαν τὸ στρατόπεδον αὐτῶν καὶ ᾤχοντο πολεμεῖν αὐτὸν καὶ εὗρον αὐτὸν ἐπὶ ὕδατος πολλοῦ ἐν Γαβαων

13 καὶ ἐγένετο ὅτε εἶδον πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ὁ μετὰ Ισμαηλ τὸν Ιωαναν καὶ τοὺς ἡγεμόνας τῆς δυνάμεως τῆς μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ

14 καὶ ἀνέστρεψαν πρὸς Ιωαναν

15 καὶ Ισμαηλ ἐσώθη σὺν ὀκτὼ ἀνθρώποις καὶ ᾤχετο πρὸς τοὺς υἱοὺς Αμμων

16 καὶ ἔλαβεν Ιωαναν καὶ πάντες οἱ ἡγεμόνες τῆς δυνάμεως οἱ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ πάντας τοὺς καταλοίπους τοῦ λαοῦ οὕς ἀπέστρεψεν ἀπὸ Ισμαηλ δυνατοὺς ἄνδρας ἐν πολέμῳ καὶ τὰς γυναῖκας καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ καὶ τοὺς εὐνούχους οὓς ἀπέστρεψεν ἀπὸ Γαβαων

17 καὶ ᾤχοντο καὶ ἐκάθισαν ἐν Γαβηρωθ-χαμααμ τὴν πρὸς Βηθλεεμ τοῦ πορευθῆναι εἰσελθεῖν εἰς Αἴγυπτον

18 ἀπὸ προσώπου τῶν Χαλδαίων ὅτι ἐφοβήθησαν ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτῶν ὅτι ἐπάταξεν Ισμαηλ τὸν Γοδολιαν ὃν κατέστησεν βασιλεὺς Βαβυλῶνος ἐν τῇ γῇ

1 Ad Moab. [Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël:
Væ super Nabo, quoniam vastata est, et confusa!
capta est Cariathaim, confusa est fortis, et tremuit.

2 Non est ultra exsultatio in Moab contra Hesebon:
cogitaverunt malum: Venite, et disperdamus eam de gente.
Ergo silens conticesces, sequeturque te gladius.

3 Vox clamoris de Oronaim, vastitas et contritio magna.

4 Contrita est Moab: annuntiate clamorem parvulis ejus.

5 Per ascensum enim Luith
plorans ascendet in fletu,
quoniam in descensu Oronaim
hostes ululatum contritionis audierunt.

6 Fugite, salvate animas vestras,
et eritis quasi myricæ in deserto:

7 pro eo enim quod habuisti fiduciam
in munitionibus tuis et in thesauris tuis,
tu quoque capieris:
et ibit Chamos in transmigrationem,
sacerdotes ejus et principes ejus simul.

8 Et veniet prædo ad omnem urbem,
et urbs nulla salvabitur:
et peribunt valles,
et dissipabuntur campestria,
quoniam dixit Dominus:

9 Date florem Moab, quia florens egredietur:
et civitates ejus desertæ erunt, et inhabitabiles.

10 Maledictus qui facit opus Domini fraudulenter,
et maledictus qui prohibet gladium suum a sanguine.

11 Fertilis fuit Moab ab adolescentia sua,
et requievit in fæcibus suis:
nec transfusus est de vase in vas,
et in transmigrationem non abiit:
idcirco permansit gustus ejus in eo,
et odor ejus non est immutatus.

12 Propterea ecce dies veniunt, dicit Dominus,
et mittam ei ordinatores et stratores laguncularum:
et sternent eum, et vasa ejus exhaurient,
et lagunculas eorum collident.

13 Et confundetur Moab a Chamos
sicut confusa est domus Israël a Bethel,
in qua habebat fiduciam.

14 Quomodo dicitis: Fortes sumus,
et viri robusti ad præliandum?

15 Vastata est Moab, et civitates illius succiderunt,
et electi juvenes ejus descenderunt in occisionem, ait Rex:
Dominus exercituum nomen ejus.

16 Prope est interitus Moab ut veniat,
et malum ejus velociter accurret nimis.

17 Consolamini eum, omnes qui estis in circuitu ejus:
et universi qui scitis nomen ejus, dicite:
Quomodo confracta est virga fortis,
baculus gloriosus?

18 Descende de gloria, et sede in siti,
habitatio filiæ Dibon,
quoniam vastator Moab ascendit ad te:
dissipavit munitiones tuas.

19 In via sta, et prospice,
habitatio Aroër:
interroga fugientem,
et ei qui evasit dic: Quid accidit?

20 Confusus est Moab, quoniam victus est.
Ululate, et clamate:
annuntiate in Arnon,
quoniam vastata est Moab,

21 et judicium venit ad terram campestrem,
super Helon, et super Jasa,
et super Mephaath,

22 et super Dibon,
et super Nabo, et super domum Deblathaim,

23 et super Cariathaim, et super Bethgamul,
et super Bethmaon,

24 et super Carioth,
et super Bosra, et super omnes civitates terræ Moab,
quæ longe et quæ prope sunt.

25 Abscissum est cornu Moab,
et brachium ejus contritum est, ait Dominus.

26 Inebriate eum, quoniam contra Dominum erectus est:
et allidet manum Moab in vomitu suo,
et erit in derisum etiam ipse.

27 Fuit enim in derisum tibi Israël:
quasi inter fures reperisses eum:
propter verba ergo tua quæ adversum illum locutus es,
captivus duceris.

28 Relinquite civitates, et habitate in petra, habitatores Moab:
et estote quasi columba nidificans in summo ore foraminis.

29 Audivimus superbiam Moab: superbus est valde:
sublimitatem ejus, et arrogantiam,
et superbiam, et altitudinem cordis ejus.

30 Ego scio, ait Dominus, jactantiam ejus,
et quod non sit juxta eam virtus ejus,
nec juxta quod poterat conata sit facere.

31 Ideo super Moab ejulabo,
et ad Moab universam clamabo,
ad viros muri fictilis lamentantes:

32 de planctu Jazer plorabo tibi, vinea Sabama.
Propagines tuæ transierunt mare;
usque ad mare Jazer pervenerunt:
super messem tuam et vindemiam tuam prædo irruit.

33 Ablata est lætitia et exsultatio
de Carmelo et de terra Moab,
et vinum de torcularibus sustuli:
nequaquam calcator uvæ solitum celeuma cantabit.

34 De clamore Hesebon usque Eleale et Jasa, dederunt vocem suam;
a Segor usque ad Oronaim, vitula conternante:
aquæ quoque Nemrim pessimæ erunt.

35 Et auferam de Moab, ait Dominus,
offerentem in excelsis,
et sacrificantem diis ejus.

36 Propterea cor meum ad Moab quasi tibiæ resonabit,
et cor meum ad viros muri fictilis dabit sonitum tibiarum:
quia plus fecit quam potuit,
idcirco perierunt.

37 Omne enim caput calvitium,
et omnis barba rasa erit:
in cunctis manibus colligatio,
et super omne dorsum cilicium:

38 super omnia tecta Moab, et in plateis ejus,
omnis planctus:
quoniam contrivi Moab
sicut vas inutile, ait Dominus.

39 Quomodo victa est, et ululaverunt?
quomodo dejecit cervicem Moab, et confusus est?
eritque Moab in derisum, et in exemplum omnibus in circuitu suo.

40 Hæc dicit Dominus:
Ecce quasi aquila volabit,
et extendet alas suas ad Moab.

41 Capta est Carioth, et munitiones comprehensæ sunt:
et erit cor fortium Moab in die illa
sicut cor mulieris parturientis,

42 et cessabit Moab esse populus,
quoniam contra Dominum gloriatus est.

43 Pavor, et fovea,
et laqueus super te,
o habitator Moab, dicit Dominus.

44 Qui fugerit a facie pavoris cadet in foveam,
et qui conscenderit de fovea capietur laqueo:
adducam enim super Moab annum visitationis eorum, ait Dominus.

45 In umbra Hesebon steterunt de laqueo fugientes,
quia ignis egressus est de Hesebon,
et flamma de medio Seon:
et devorabit partem Moab,
et verticem filiorum tumultus.

46 Væ tibi, Moab:
periisti, popule Chamos,
quia comprehensi sunt filii tui
et filiæ tuæ in captivitatem.

47 Et convertam captivitatem Moab in novissimis diebus, ait Dominus.] Hucusque judicia Moab.
