||quod factum est verbum Domini ad Hieremiam de sermonibus siccitatis
The word of the Lord that came to Jeremias concerning the words of the drought.
||luxit Iudaea et portae eius corruerunt et obscuratae sunt in terra et clamor Hierusalem ascendit
Judea hath mourned, and the gates thereof are fallen, and are become obscure on the ground, and the cry of Jerusalem is gone up.
||maiores miserunt minores suos ad aquam venerunt ad hauriendum non invenerunt aquam reportaverunt vasa sua vacua confusi sunt et adflicti et operuerunt capita sua
The great ones sent their inferiors to the water: they came to draw, they found no water, they carried back their vessels empty: they were confounded and afflicted, and covered their heads.
||propter terrae vastitatem quia non venit pluvia in terra confusi sunt agricolae operuerunt capita sua
For the destruction of the land, because there came no rain upon the earth, the husbandman were confounded, they covered their heads.
||nam et cerva in agro peperit et reliquit quia non erat herba
Yea, the hind also brought forth in the field, and left it, because there was no grass.
||et onagri steterunt in rupibus traxerunt ventum quasi dracones defecerunt oculi eorum quia non erat herba
And the wild asses stood upon the rocks, they snuffed up the wind like dragons, their eyes failed, because there was no grass.
||si iniquitates nostrae responderunt nobis Domine fac propter nomen tuum quoniam multae sunt aversiones nostrae tibi peccavimus
If our iniquities have testified against us, O Lord, do thou it for thy name's sake, for our rebellions are many, we have sinned against thee.
||expectatio Israhel salvator eius in tempore tribulationis quare quasi colonus futurus es in terra et quasi viator declinans ad manendum
O expectation of Israel, the Saviour thereof in time of trouble: why wilt thou be as a stranger in the land, and as a wayfaring man turning in to lodge?
||quare futurus es velut vir vagus ut fortis qui non potest salvare tu autem in nobis es Domine et nomen tuum super nos invocatum est ne derelinquas nos
Why wilt thou be as a wandering man, as a mighty man that cannot save? but thou, O Lord, art among us, and thy name is called upon by us, forsake us not.
||haec dicit Dominus populo huic qui dilexit movere pedes suos et non quievit et Domino non placuit nunc recordabitur iniquitatum eorum et visitabit peccata eorum
Thus saith the Lord to this people, that have loved to move their feet, and have not rested, and have not pleased the Lord: He will now remember their iniquities, and visit their sins.
||et dixit Dominus ad me noli orare pro populo isto in bonum
And the Lord said to me: Pray not for this people for their good.
||cum ieiunaverint non exaudiam preces eorum et si obtulerint holocaustomata et victimas non suscipiam ea quoniam gladio et fame et peste ego consumam eos
When they fast I will not hear their prayers: and if they offer holocausts and victims, I will not receive them: for I will consume them by the sword, and by famine, and by the pestilence.
||et dixi a a a Domine Deus prophetae dicunt eis non videbitis gladium et famis non erit in vobis sed pacem veram dabit vobis in loco isto
And I said: Ah, ah, ah, O Lord God, the prophets say to them: You shall not see the sword, and there shall be no famine among you, but he will give you true peace in this place.
||et dixit Dominus ad me falso prophetae vaticinantur in nomine meo non misi eos et non praecepi eis neque locutus sum ad eos visionem mendacem et divinationem et fraudulentiam et seductionem cordis sui prophetant vobis
And the Lord said to me: The prophets prophesy falsely in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, nor have I spoken to them: they prophesy unto you a lying vision, and divination and deceit, and the seduction of their own heart.
||ideo haec dicit Dominus de prophetis qui prophetant in nomine meo quos ego non misi dicentes gladius et famis non erit in terra hac in gladio et fame consumentur prophetae illi
Therefore thus saith the Lord concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name, whom I did not send, that say: Sword and famine shall not be in this land: By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.
||et populi quibus prophetant erunt proiecti in viis Hierusalem prae fame et gladio et non erit qui sepeliat eos ipsi et uxores eorum filii et filiae eorum et effundam super eos malum suum
And the people to whom they prophesy, shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword, and there shall be none to bury them: they and their wives, their sons and their daughters, and I will pour out their own wickedness upon them.
||et dices ad eos verbum istud deducant oculi mei lacrimam per noctem et diem et non taceant quoniam contritione magna contrita est virgo filia populi mei plaga pessima vehementer
And thou shalt speak this word to them: Let my eyes shed down tears night and day, and let them not cease, because the virgin daughter of my people is afflicted with a great affliction, with an exceeding grievous evil.
||si egressus fuero ad agros ecce occisi gladio et si introiero in civitatem ecce adtenuati fame propheta quoque et sacerdos abierunt in terram quam ignorabant
If I go forth into the fields, behold the slain with the sword: and if I enter into the city, behold them that are consumed with famine. The prophet also and the priest are gone into a land which they knew not.
||numquid proiciens abiecisti Iudam aut Sion abominata est anima tua quare ergo percussisti nos ita ut nulla sit sanitas expectavimus pacem et non est bonum et tempus curationis et ecce turbatio
Hast thou utterly cast away Juda, or hath thy soul abhorred Sion? why then hast thou struck us, so that there is no healing for us? we have looked for peace, and there is no good: and for the time of healing, and behold trouble.
||cognovimus Domine impietates nostras iniquitatem patrum nostrorum quia peccavimus tibi
We acknowledge, O Lord, our wickedness, the iniquities of our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.
||ne nos des in obprobrium propter nomen tuum neque facias nobis contumeliam solii gloriae tuae recordare ne irritum facias foedus tuum nobiscum
Give us not to be a reproach, for thy name's sake, and do not disgrace in us the throne of thy glory: remember, break not thy covenant with us.
||numquid sunt in sculptilibus gentium qui pluant aut caeli possunt dare imbres nonne tu es Domine Deus noster quem expectavimus tu enim fecisti omnia haec
Are there any among the graven things of the Gentiles that can send rain? or can the heavens give showers? art not thou the Lord our God, whom we have looked for? for thou hast made all these things.
