||verbum quod factum est ad Hieremiam a Domino dicens
The word that came from the Lord to Jeremias, saying:
||audite verba pacti huius et loquimini ad viros Iuda et habitatores Hierusalem
Hear ye the words of this covenant, and speak to the men of Juda, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem,
||et dices ad eos haec dicit Dominus Deus Israhel maledictus vir qui non audierit verba pacti huius
And thou shalt say to them: Thus saith the Lord the God of Israel: Cursed is the man that shall not hearken to the words of this covenant,
||quod praecepi patribus vestris in die qua eduxi eos de terra Aegypti de fornace ferrea dicens audite vocem meam et facite omnia quae praecipio vobis et eritis mihi in populum et ego ero vobis in Deum
Which I commanded your fathers in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying: Hear ye my voice, and do all things that I command you: and you shall be my people, and I will be your God:
||ut suscitem iuramentum quod iuravi patribus vestris daturum me eis terram fluentem lacte et melle sicut est dies haec et respondi et dixi amen Domine
That I may accomplish the oath which I swore to your fathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey, as it is this day. And I answered and said: Amen, O Lord.
||et dixit Dominus ad me vociferare omnia verba haec in civitatibus Iuda et foris Hierusalem dicens audite verba pacti huius et facite illa
And the Lord said to me: Proclaim aloud all these words in the cities of Juda, and in the streets of Jerusalem, saying: Hear ye the words of the covenant, and do them:
||quia contestans contestatus sum patres vestros in die qua eduxi eos de terra Aegypti usque ad diem hanc mane surgens contestatus sum et dixi audite vocem meam
For protesting I conjured your fathers in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt even to this day: rising early I conjured them, and said: Hearken ye to my voice:
||et non audierunt nec inclinaverunt aurem suam sed abierunt unusquisque in pravitate cordis sui mali et induxi super eos omnia verba pacti huius quod praecepi ut facerent et non fecerunt
And they obeyed not, nor inclined their ear: but walked every one in the perverseness of his own wicked heart: and I brought upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded them to do, but they did them not.
||et dixit Dominus ad me inventa est coniuratio in viris Iuda et in habitatoribus Hierusalem
And the Lord said to me: A conspiracy is found among the men of Juda, and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
||reversi sunt ad iniquitates patrum suorum priores qui noluerunt audire verba mea et hii ergo abierunt post deos alienos ut servirent eis irritum fecerunt domus Israhel et domus Iuda pactum meum quod pepigi cum patribus eorum
They are returned to the former iniquities of their fathers, who refused to hear my words: so these likewise have gone after strange gods, to serve them: the house of Israel, and the house of Juda have made void my covenant, which I made with their fathers.
||quam ob rem haec dicit Dominus ecce ego inducam super eos mala de quibus exire non poterunt et clamabunt ad me et non exaudiam eos
Wherefore thus saith the Lord: Behold I will bring in evils upon them, which they shall not be able to escape: and they shall cry to me, and I will not hearken to them.
||et ibunt civitates Iuda et habitatores Hierusalem et clamabunt ad deos quibus libant et non salvabunt eos in tempore adflictionis eorum
And the cities of Juda, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem shall go, and cry to the gods to whom they offer sacrifice, and they shall not save them in the time of their affliction.
||secundum numerum enim civitatum tuarum erant dii tui Iuda et secundum numerum viarum Hierusalem posuistis aras confusionis aras ad libandum Baali
For according to the number of thy cities were thy gods, O Juda: and according to the number of the streets of Jerusalem thou hast set up altars of confusion, altars to offer sacrifice to Baalim.
||tu ergo noli orare pro populo hoc et ne adsumas pro eis laudem et orationem quia non exaudiam in tempore clamoris eorum ad me in tempore adflictionis eorum
Therefore do not thou pray for this people, and do not take up praise and prayer for them: for I will not hear them in the time of their cry to me, in the time of their affliction.
||quid est quod dilectus meus in domo mea fecit scelera multa numquid carnes sanctae auferent a te malitias tuas in quibus gloriata es
What is the meaning that my beloved hath wrought much wickedness in my house? shall the holy flesh take away from thee thy crimes, in which thou hast boasted?
||olivam uberem pulchram fructiferam speciosam vocavit Dominus nomen tuum ad vocem loquellae grandis exarsit ignis in ea et conbusta sunt frutecta eius
The Lord called thy name, a plentiful olive tree, fair, fruitful, and beautiful: at the noise of a word, a great fire was kindled in it, and the branches thereof are burnt.
||et Dominus exercituum qui plantavit te locutus est super te malum pro malis domus Israhel et domus Iuda quae fecerunt sibi ad inritandum me libantes Baali
And the Lord of hosts that planted thee, hath pronounced evil against thee: for the evils of the house of Israel, and of the house of Juda, which they have done to themselves, to provoke me, offering sacrifice to Baalim.
||tu autem Domine demonstrasti mihi et cognovi tunc ostendisti mihi studia eorum
But thou, O Lord, hast shewn me, and I have known: then thou shewedst me their doings.
||et ego quasi agnus mansuetus qui portatur ad victimam et non cognovi quia super me cogitaverunt consilia mittamus lignum in panem eius et eradamus eum de terra viventium et nomen eius non memoretur amplius
And I was as a meek lamb, that is carried to be a victim: and I knew not that they had devised counsels against me, saying: Let us put wood on his bread, and cut him off from the land of the living, and let his name be remembered no more.
||tu autem Domine Sabaoth qui iudicas iuste et probas renes et cor videam ultionem tuam ex eis tibi enim revelavi causam meam
But thou, O Lord of Sabaoth, who judgest justly, and triest the reins and the hearts, let me see thy revenge on them: for to thee have I revealed my cause.
||propterea haec dicit Dominus ad viros Anathoth qui quaerunt animam tuam et dicunt non prophetabis in nomine Domini et non morieris in manibus nostris
Therefore thus saith the Lord to the men of Anathoth, who seek thy life, and say: Thou shalt not prophesy in the name of the Lord, and thou shalt not die in our hands.
||propterea haec dicit Dominus exercituum ecce ego visitabo super eos iuvenes morientur in gladio filii eorum et filiae eorum morientur in fame
Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts: Behold I will visit upon them: their young men shall die by the sword, their sons and their daughters shall die by famine.
||et reliquiae non erunt ex eis inducam enim malum super viros Anathoth annum visitationis eorum
And there shall be no remains of them: for I will bring in evil upon the men of Anathoth, the year of their visitation.
