Jeremiah 52


1  Zedekiah6667 was one259 and twenty6242 years8141 old1121 when he began to reign,4427 and he reigned4427 eleven6259 6240 years8141 in Jerusalem.3389 And his mother's517 name8034 was Hamutal2537 the daughter1323 of Jeremiah3414 of Libnah.4480 3841

2  And he did6213 that which was evil7451 in the eyes5869 of the LORD,3068 according to all3605 that834 Jehoiakim3079 had done.6213

3  For3588 through5921 the anger639 of the LORD3068 it came to pass1961 in Jerusalem3389 and Judah,3063 till5704 he had cast them out7993 853 from4480 5921 his presence,6440 that Zedekiah6667 rebelled4775 against the king4428 of Babylon.894

4  And it came to pass1961 in the ninth8671 year8141 of his reign,4427 in the tenth6224 month,2320 in the tenth6218 day of the month,2320 that Nebuchadnezzar5019 king4428 of Babylon894 came,935 he1931 and all3605 his army,2428 against5921 Jerusalem,3389 and pitched2583 against5921 it, and built1129 forts1785 against5921 it round about.5439

5  So the city5892 was besieged935 4692 unto5704 the eleventh6249 6240 year8141 of king4428 Zedekiah.6667

6  And in the fourth7243 month,2320 in the ninth8672 day of the month,2320 the famine7458 was sore2388 in the city,5892 so that there was1961 no3808 bread3899 for the people5971 of the land.776

7  Then the city5892 was broken up,1234 and all3605 the men376 of war4421 fled,1272 and went forth3318 out of the city4480 5892 by night3915 by the way1870 of the gate8179 between996 the two walls,2346 which834 was by5921 the king's4428 garden;1588 (now the Chaldeans3778 were by5921 the city5892 round about:)5439 and they went1980 by the way1870 of the plain.6160

8  But the army2428 of the Chaldeans3778 pursued7291 after310 the king,4428 and overtook5381 853 Zedekiah6667 in the plains6160 of Jericho;3405 and all3605 his army2428 was scattered6327 from4480 5921 him.

9  Then they took8610 853 the king,4428 and carried him up5927 unto413 the king4428 of Babylon894 to Riblah7247 in the land776 of Hamath;2574 where he gave1696 judgment4941 upon854 him.

10  And the king4428 of Babylon894 slew7819 853 the sons1121 of Zedekiah6667 before his eyes:5869 he slew7819 also1571 853 all3605 the princes8269 of Judah3063 in Riblah.7247

11  Then he put out5786 the eyes5869 of Zedekiah;6667 and the king4428 of Babylon894 bound631 him in chains,5178 and carried935 him to Babylon,894 and put5414 him in prison1004 6486 till5704 the day3117 of his death.4194

12  Now in the fifth2549 month,2320 in the tenth6218 day of the month,2320 which1931 was the nineteenth8672 6240 year8141 of Nebuchadnezzar5019 king4428 of Babylon,894 came935 Nebuzaradan,5018 captain7227 of the guard,2876 which served5975 6440 the king4428 of Babylon,894 into Jerusalem,3389

13  And burned8313 853 the house1004 of the LORD,3068 and the king's4428 house;1004 and all3605 the houses1004 of Jerusalem,3389 and all3605 the houses1004 of the great1419 men, burned8313 he with fire:784

14  And all3605 the army2428 of the Chaldeans,3778 that834 were with854 the captain7227 of the guard,2876 broke down5422 all3605 the walls2346 of Jerusalem3389 round about.5439

15  Then Nebuzaradan5018 the captain7227 of the guard2876 carried away captive1540 certain of the poor4480 1803 of the people,5971 and the residue3499 of the people5971 that remained7604 in the city,5892 and those that fell away,5307 that834 fell5307 to413 the king4428 of Babylon,894 and the rest3499 of the multitude.527

16  But Nebuzaradan5018 the captain7227 of the guard2876 left7604 certain of the poor4480 1803 of the land776 for vinedressers3755 and for husbandmen.3009

17  Also the pillars5982 of brass5178 that834 were in the house1004 of the LORD,3068 and the bases,4350 and the brazen5178 sea3220 that834 was in the house1004 of the LORD,3068 the Chaldeans3778 broke,7665 and carried5375 853 all3605 the brass5178 of them to Babylon.894

18  The caldrons5518 also, and the shovels,3257 and the snuffers,4212 and the bowls,4219 and the spoons,3709 and all3605 the vessels3627 of brass5178 wherewith834 they ministered,8334 took they away.3947

19  And the basins,5592 and the firepans,4289 and the bowls,4219 and the caldrons,5518 and the candlesticks,4501 and the spoons,3709 and the cups;4518 that which834 was of gold2091 in gold,2091 and that which834 was of silver3701 in silver,3701 took3947 the captain7227 of the guard2876 away.

20  The two8147 pillars,5982 one259 sea,3220 and twelve8147 6240 brazen5178 bulls1241 that834 were under8478 the bases,4350 which834 king4428 Solomon8010 had made6213 in the house1004 of the LORD:3068 the brass5178 of all3605 these428 vessels3627 was1961 without3808 weight.4948

21  And concerning the pillars,5982 the height6967 of one259 pillar5982 was eighteen8083 6240 cubits;520 and a fillet2339 of twelve8147 6240 cubits520 did compass5437 it; and the thickness5672 thereof was four702 fingers:676 it was hollow.5014

22  And a chapiter3805 of brass5178 was upon5921 it; and the height6967 of one259 chapiter3805 was five2568 cubits,520 with network7639 and pomegranates7416 upon5921 the chapiters3805 round about,5439 all3605 of brass.5178 The second8145 pillar5982 also and the pomegranates7416 were like unto these.428

23  And there were1961 ninety8673 and six8337 pomegranates7416 on a side;7307 and all3605 the pomegranates7416 upon5921 the network7639 were a hundred3967 round about.5439

24  And the captain7227 of the guard2876 took3947 853 Seraiah8304 the chief7218 priest,3548 and Zephaniah6846 the second4932 priest,3548 and the three7969 keepers8104 of the door:5592

25  He took3947 also out of4480 the city5892 a259 eunuch,5631 which834 had1961 the charge6496 of5921 the men376 of war;4421 and seven7651 men376 of them that were near4480 7200 the king's4428 person,6440 which834 were found4672 in the city;5892 and the principal8269 scribe5608 of the host,6635 who mustered6633 853 the people5971 of the land;776 and threescore8346 men376 of the people4480 5971 of the land,776 that were found4672 in the midst8432 of the city.5892

26  So Nebuzaradan5018 the captain7227 of the guard2876 took3947 them, and brought1980 them to413 the king4428 of Babylon894 to Riblah.7247

27  And the king4428 of Babylon894 smote5221 them, and put them to death4191 in Riblah7247 in the land776 of Hamath.2574 Thus Judah3063 was carried away captive1540 out of4480 5921 his own land.127

28  This2088 is the people5971 whom834 Nebuchadnezzar5019 carried away captive:1540 in the seventh7651 year8141 three7969 thousand505 Jews3064 and three7969 and twenty:6242

29  In the eighteenth8083 6240 year8141 of Nebuchadnezzar5019 he carried away captive1540 from Jerusalem4480 3389 eight8083 hundred3967 thirty7970 and two8147 persons:5315

30  In the three7969 and twentieth6242 year8141 of Nebuchadnezzar5019 Nebuzaradan5018 the captain7227 of the guard2876 carried away captive1540 of the Jews3064 seven7651 hundred3967 forty705 and five2568 persons:5315 all3605 the persons5315 were four702 thousand505 and six8337 hundred.3967

31  And it came to pass1961 in the seven7651 and thirtieth7970 year8141 of the captivity1546 of Jehoiachin3078 king4428 of Judah,3063 in the twelfth8147 6240 month,2320 in the five2568 and twentieth6242 day of the month,2320 that Evil-merodach192 king4428 of Babylon894 in the first year8141 of his reign4438 lifted up5375 853 the head7218 of Jehoiachin3078 king4428 of Judah,3063 and brought him forth3318 853 out of prison,4480 1004 3628

32  And spoke1696 kindly2896 unto854 him, and set5414 853 his throne3678 above4480 4605 the throne3678 of the kings4428 that834 were with854 him in Babylon,894

33  And changed8138 853 his prison3608 garments:899 and he did continually8548 eat398 bread3899 before6440 him all3605 the days3117 of his life.2416

34  And for his diet,737 there was a continual8548 diet737 given5414 him of4480 854 the king4428 of Babylon,894 every day3117 3117 a portion1697 until5704 the day3117 of his death,4194 all3605 the days3117 of his life.2416


1 ὄντος εἰκοστοῦ καὶ ἑνὸς ἔτους Σεδεκιου ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτόν καὶ ἕνδεκα ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ὄνομα τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ Αμιτααλ θυγάτηρ Ιερεμιου ἐκ Λοβενα

4 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ ἔτει τῷ ἐνάτῳ τῆς βασιλείας αὐτοῦ ἐν μηνὶ τῷ δεκάτῳ δεκάτῃ τοῦ μηνὸς ἦλθεν Ναβουχοδονοσορ βασιλεὺς Βαβυλῶνος καὶ πᾶσα ἡ δύναμις αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ Ιερουσαλημ καὶ περιεχαράκωσαν αὐτὴν καὶ περιῳκοδόμησαν αὐτὴν τετραπέδοις λίθοις κύκλῳ

5 καὶ ἦλθεν ἡ πόλις εἰς συνοχὴν ἕως ἑνδεκάτου ἔτους τῷ βασιλεῖ Σεδεκια

6 ἐν τῇ ἐνάτῃ τοῦ μηνὸς καὶ ἐστερεώθη ὁ λιμὸς ἐν τῇ πόλει καὶ οὐκ ἦσαν ἄρτοι τῷ λαῷ τῆς γῆς

7 καὶ διεκόπη ἡ πόλις καὶ πάντες οἱ ἄνδρες οἱ πολεμισταὶ ἐξῆλθον νυκτὸς κατὰ τὴν ὁδὸν τῆς πύλης ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ τείχους καὶ τοῦ προτειχίσματος ὃ ἦν κατὰ τὸν κῆπον τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ οἱ Χαλδαῖοι ἐπὶ τῆς πόλεως κύκλῳ καὶ ἐπορεύθησαν ὁδὸν τὴν εἰς Αραβα

8 καὶ κατεδίωξεν ἡ δύναμις τῶν Χαλδαίων ὀπίσω τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ κατέλαβον αὐτὸν ἐν τῷ πέραν Ιεριχω καὶ πάντες οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ διεσπάρησαν ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ

9 καὶ συνέλαβον τὸν βασιλέα καὶ ἤγαγον αὐτὸν πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα Βαβυλῶνος εἰς Δεβλαθα καὶ ἐλάλησεν αὐτῷ μετὰ κρίσεως

10 καὶ ἔσφαξεν βασιλεὺς Βαβυλῶνος τοὺς υἱοὺς Σεδεκιου κατ᾽ ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντας τοὺς ἄρχοντας Ιουδα ἔσφαξεν ἐν Δεβλαθα

11 καὶ τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς Σεδεκιου ἐξετύφλωσεν καὶ ἔδησεν αὐτὸν ἐν πέδαις καὶ ἤγαγεν αὐτὸν βασιλεὺς Βαβυλῶνος εἰς Βαβυλῶνα καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτὸν εἰς οἰκίαν μύλωνος ἕως ἡμέρας ἧς ἀπέθανεν

12 καὶ ἐν μηνὶ πέμπτῳ δεκάτῃ τοῦ μηνὸς ἦλθεν Ναβουζαρδαν ὁ ἀρχιμάγειρος ὁ ἑστηκὼς κατὰ πρόσωπον τοῦ βασιλέως Βαβυλῶνος εἰς Ιερουσαλημ

13 καὶ ἐνέπρησεν τὸν οἶκον κυρίου καὶ τὸν οἶκον τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ πάσας τὰς οἰκίας τῆς πόλεως καὶ πᾶσαν οἰκίαν μεγάλην ἐνέπρησεν ἐν πυρί

14 καὶ πᾶν τεῖχος Ιερουσαλημ κύκλῳ καθεῖλεν ἡ δύναμις τῶν Χαλδαίων ἡ μετὰ τοῦ ἀρχιμαγείρου

16 καὶ τοὺς καταλοίπους τοῦ λαοῦ κατέλιπεν ὁ ἀρχιμάγειρος εἰς ἀμπελουργοὺς καὶ εἰς γεωργούς

17 καὶ τοὺς στύλους τοὺς χαλκοῦς τοὺς ἐν οἴκῳ κυρίου καὶ τὰς βάσεις καὶ τὴν θάλασσαν τὴν χαλκῆν τὴν ἐν οἴκῳ κυρίου συνέτριψαν οἱ Χαλδαῖοι καὶ ἔλαβον τὸν χαλκὸν αὐτῶν καὶ ἀπήνεγκαν εἰς Βαβυλῶνα

18 καὶ τὴν στεφάνην καὶ τὰς φιάλας καὶ τὰς κρεάγρας καὶ πάντα τὰ σκεύη τὰ χαλκᾶ ἐν οἷς ἐλειτούργουν ἐν αὐτοῖς

19 καὶ τὰ σαφφωθ καὶ τὰ μασμαρωθ καὶ τοὺς ὑποχυτῆρας καὶ τὰς λυχνίας καὶ τὰς θυίσκας καὶ τοὺς κυάθους ἃ ἦν χρυσᾶ χρυσᾶ καὶ ἃ ἦν ἀργυρᾶ ἀργυρᾶ ἔλαβεν ὁ ἀρχιμάγειρος

20 καὶ οἱ στῦλοι δύο καὶ ἡ θάλασσα μία καὶ οἱ μόσχοι δώδεκα χαλκοῖ ὑποκάτω τῆς θαλάσσης ἃ ἐποίησεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμων εἰς οἶκον κυρίου οὐκ ἦν σταθμὸς τοῦ χαλκοῦ αὐτῶν

21 καὶ οἱ στῦλοι τριάκοντα πέντε πηχῶν ὕψος τοῦ στύλου τοῦ ἑνός καὶ σπαρτίον δώδεκα πήχεων περιεκύκλου αὐτόν καὶ τὸ πάχος αὐτοῦ δακτύλων τεσσάρων κύκλῳ

22 καὶ γεῖσος ἐπ᾽ αὐτοῖς χαλκοῦν καὶ πέντε πήχεων τὸ μῆκος ὑπεροχὴ τοῦ γείσους τοῦ ἑνός καὶ δίκτυον καὶ ῥόαι ἐπὶ τοῦ γείσους κύκλῳ τὰ πάντα χαλκᾶ καὶ κατὰ ταῦτα τῷ στύλῳ τῷ δευτέρῳ ὀκτὼ ῥόαι τῷ πήχει τοῖς δώδεκα πήχεσιν

23 καὶ ἦσαν αἱ ῥόαι ἐνενήκοντα ἓξ τὸ ἓν μέρος καὶ ἦσαν αἱ πᾶσαι ῥόαι ἐπὶ τοῦ δικτύου κύκλῳ ἑκατόν

24 καὶ ἔλαβεν ὁ ἀρχιμάγειρος τὸν ἱερέα τὸν πρῶτον καὶ τὸν ἱερέα τὸν δευτερεύοντα καὶ τοὺς τρεῖς τοὺς φυλάττοντας τὴν ὁδὸν

25 καὶ εὐνοῦχον ἕνα ὃς ἦν ἐπιστάτης τῶν ἀνδρῶν τῶν πολεμιστῶν καὶ ἑπτὰ ἄνδρας ὀνομαστοὺς τοὺς ἐν προσώπῳ τοῦ βασιλέως τοὺς εὑρεθέντας ἐν τῇ πόλει καὶ τὸν γραμματέα τῶν δυνάμεων τὸν γραμματεύοντα τῷ λαῷ τῆς γῆς καὶ ἑξήκοντα ἀνθρώπους ἐκ τοῦ λαοῦ τῆς γῆς τοὺς εὑρεθέντας ἐν μέσῳ τῆς πόλεως

26 καὶ ἔλαβεν αὐτοὺς Ναβουζαρδαν ὁ ἀρχιμάγειρος καὶ ἤγαγεν αὐτοὺς πρὸς βασιλέα Βαβυλῶνος εἰς Δεβλαθα

27 καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτοὺς βασιλεὺς Βαβυλῶνος ἐν Δεβλαθα ἐν γῇ Αιμαθ

31 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ τριακοστῷ καὶ ἑβδόμῳ ἔτει ἀποικισθέντος τοῦ Ιωακιμ βασιλέως Ιουδα ἐν τῷ δωδεκάτῳ μηνὶ ἐν τῇ τετράδι καὶ εἰκάδι τοῦ μηνὸς ἔλαβεν Ουλαιμαραδαχ βασιλεὺς Βαβυλῶνος ἐν τῷ ἐνιαυτῷ ᾧ ἐβασίλευσεν τὴν κεφαλὴν Ιωακιμ βασιλέως Ιουδα καὶ ἐξήγαγεν αὐτὸν ἐξ οἰκίας ἧς ἐφυλάττετο

32 καὶ ἐλάλησεν αὐτῷ χρηστὰ καὶ ἔδωκεν τὸν θρόνον αὐτοῦ ἐπάνω τῶν θρόνων τῶν βασιλέων τῶν μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἐν Βαβυλῶνι

33 καὶ ἤλλαξεν τὴν στολὴν τῆς φυλακῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἤσθιεν ἄρτον διὰ παντὸς κατὰ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας ἃς ἔζησεν

34 καὶ ἡ σύνταξις αὐτῷ ἐδίδοτο διὰ παντὸς παρὰ τοῦ βασιλέως Βαβυλῶνος ἐξ ἡμέρας εἰς ἡμέραν ἕως ἡμέρας ἧς ἀπέθανεν

1 Filius viginti et unius anni erat Sedecias cum regnare cœpisset, et undecim annis regnavit in Jerusalem. Et nomen matris ejus Amital filia Jeremiæ de Lobna.

2 Et fecit malum in oculis Domini, juxta omnia quæ fecerat Joakim,

3 quoniam furor Domini erat in Jerusalem et in Juda, usquequo projiceret eos a facie sua: et recessit Sedecias a rege Babylonis.

4 Factum est autem in anno nono regni ejus, in mense decimo, decima mensis, venit Nabuchodonosor rex Babylonis, ipse et omnis exercitus ejus, adversus Jerusalem: et obsederunt eam, et ædificaverunt contra eam munitiones in circuitu.

5 Et fuit civitas obsessa usque ad undecimum annum regis Sedeciæ.

6 Mense autem quarto, nona mensis, obtinuit fames civitatem, et non erant alimenta populo terræ.

7 Et dirupta est civitas, et omnes viri bellatores ejus fugerunt, exieruntque de civitate nocte, per viam portæ quæ est inter duos muros, et ducit ad hortum regis, Chaldæis obsidentibus urbem in gyro, et abierunt per viam quæ ducit in eremum.

8 Persecutus est autem Chadæorum exercitus regem, et apprehenderunt Sedeciam in deserto quod est juxta Jericho: et omnis comitatus ejus diffugit ab eo.

9 Cumque comprehendissent regem, adduxerunt eum ad regem Babylonis in Reblatha, quæ est in terra Emath, et locutus est ad eum judicia.

10 Et jugulavit rex Babylonis filios Sedeciæ in oculis ejus, sed et omnes principes Juda occidit in Reblatha.

11 Et oculos Sedeciæ eruit, et vinxit eum compedibus, et adduxit eum rex Babylonis in Babylonem, et posuit eum in domo carceris usque ad diem mortis ejus.

12 In mense autem quinto, decima mensis, ipse est annus nonusdecimus Nabuchodonosor regis Babylonis, venit Nabuzardan princeps militiæ, qui stabat coram rege Babylonis, in Jerusalem,

13 et incendit domum Domini, et domum regis, et omnes domos Jerusalem: et omnem domum magnam igni combussit:

14 et totum murum Jerusalem per circuitum destruxit cunctus exercitus Chaldæorum qui erat cum magistro militiæ.

15 De pauperibus autem populi, et de reliquo vulgo quod remanserat in civitate, et de perfugis qui transfugerant ad regem Babylonis, et ceteros de multitudine transtulit Nabuzardan princeps militiæ.

16 De pauperibus vero terræ reliquit Nabuzardan princeps militiæ vinitores et agricolas.

17 Columnas quoque æreas quæ erant in domo Domini, et bases, et mare æneum quod erat in domo Domini, confregerunt Chaldæi, et tulerunt omne æs eorum in Babylonem,

18 et lebetes, et creagras, et psalteria, et phialas, et mortariola, et omnia vasa ærea quæ in ministerio fuerant, tulerunt:

19 et hydrias, et thymiamateria, et urceos, et pelves, et candelabra, et mortaria, et cyathos, quotquot aurea, aurea, et quotquot argentea, argentea, tulit magister militiæ:

20 et columnas duas, et mare unum, et vitulos duodecim æreos qui erant sub basibus quas fecerat rex Salomon in domo Domini. Non erat pondus æris omnium horum vasorum.

21 De columnis autem decem et octo cubiti altitudinis erant in columna una, et funiculus duodecim cubitorum circuibat eam: porro grossitudo ejus quatuor digitorum, et intrinsecus cava erat.

22 Et capitella super utramque ærea: altitudo capitelli unius quinque cubitorum, et retiacula et malogranata super coronam in circuitu, omnia ærea: similiter columnæ secundæ, et malogranata.

23 Et fuerunt malogranata nonaginta sex dependentia: et omnia malogranata centum, retiaculis circumdabantur.

24 Et tulit magister militiæ Saraiam sacerdotem primum, et Sophoniam sacerdotem secundum, et tres custodes vestibuli:

25 et de civitate tulit eunuchum unum, qui erat præpositus super viros bellatores: et septem viros de his qui videbant faciem regis, qui inventi sunt in civitate: et scribam principem militum, qui probabat tyrones: et sexaginta viros de populo terræ, qui inventi sunt in medio civitatis.

26 Tulit autem eos Nabuzardan magister militiæ, et duxit eos ad regem Babylonis in Reblatha:

27 et percussit eos rex Babylonis, et interfecit eos in Reblatha in terra Emath: et translatus est Juda de terra sua.

28 Iste est populus quem transtulit Nabuchodonosor: in anno septimo, Judæos tria millia et viginti tres:

29 in anno octavodecimo Nabuchodonosor, de Jerusalem animas octingentas triginta duas:

30 in anno vigesimo tertio Nabuchodonosor, transtulit Nabuzardan magister militiæ animas Judæorum septingentas quadraginta quinque. Omnes ergo animæ, quatuor millia sexcentæ.

31 Et factum est in trigesimo septimo anno transmigrationis Joachin regis Juda, duodecimo mense, vigesima quinta mensis, elevavit Evilmerodach rex Babylonis, ipso anno regni sui, caput Joachin regis Juda, et eduxit eum de domo carceris.

32 Et locutus est cum eo bona, et posuit thronum ejus super thronos regum qui erant post se in Babylone.

33 Et mutavit vestimenta carceris ejus, et comedebat panem coram eo semper cunctis diebus vitæ suæ.

34 Et cibaria ejus, cibaria perpetua dabantur ei a rege Babylonis, statuta per singulos dies, usque ad diem mortis suæ, cunctis diebus vitæ ejus.
