||haec dicit Dominus vade et accipe lagunculam figuli testeam a senioribus populi et a senioribus sacerdotum
Thus saith the Lord: Go, and take a potter's earthen bottle, and take of the ancients of the people, and of the ancients of the priests:
||et egredere ad vallem filii Ennom quae est iuxta introitum portae Fictilis et praedicabis ibi verba quae ego loquar ad te
And go forth into the valley of the son of Ennom, which is by the entry of the earthen gate: and there thou shalt proclaim the words that I shall tell thee.
||et dices audite verbum Domini reges Iuda et habitatores Hierusalem haec dicit Dominus exercituum Deus Israhel ecce ego inducam adflictionem super locum istum ita ut omnis qui audierit illam tinniant aures eius
And thou shalt say: Hear the word of the Lord, O ye kings of Juda, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem: Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Behold I will bring an affliction upon this place: so that whosoever shall hear it, his ears shall tingle:
||eo quod dereliquerint me et alienum fecerint locum istum et libaverint in eo diis alienis quos nescierunt ipsi et patres eorum et reges Iuda et repleverunt locum istum sanguine innocentium
Because they have forsaken me, and have profaned this place : and have sacrificed therein to strange gods, whom neither they nor their fathers knew, nor the kings of Juda: and they have filled this place with the blood of innocents.
||et aedificaverunt excelsa Baali ad conburendos filios suos igni in holocaustum Baali quae non praecepi nec locutus sum nec ascenderunt in cor meum
And they have built the high places of Baalim, to burn their children with fire for a holocaust to Baalim: which I did not command, nor speak of, neither did it once come into my mind.
||propterea ecce dies veniunt dicit Dominus et non vocabitur locus iste amplius Thofeth et vallis filii Ennom sed vallis Occisionis
Therefore behold the days come, saith the Lord, that this place shall no more be called Topheth, nor the valley of the son of Ennom, but the valley of slaughter.
||et dissipabo consilium Iudae et Hierusalem in loco isto et subvertam eos gladio in conspectu inimicorum suorum et in manu quaerentium animas eorum et dabo cadavera eorum escam volatilibus caeli et bestiis terrae
And I will defeat the counsel of Juda and of Jerusalem in this place: and I will destroy them with the sword in the sight of their enemies, and by the hands of them that seek their lives: and I will give their carcasses to be meat for the fowls of the air, and for the beasts of the earth.
||et ponam civitatem hanc in stuporem et in sibilum omnis qui praeterierit per eam obstupescet et sibilabit super universa plaga eius
And I will make this city an astonishment, and a hissing: every one that shall pass by it, shall be astonished, and shall hiss because of all the plagues thereof.
||et cibabo eos carnibus filiorum suorum et carnibus filiarum suarum et unusquisque carnes amici sui comedet in obsidione et in angustia in qua concludent eos inimici eorum et qui quaerunt animas eorum
And I will feed them with the flesh of their sons, and with the flesh of their daughters: and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend in the siege, and in the distress wherewith their enemies, and they that seek their lives, shall straiten them.
||et conteres lagunculam in oculis virorum qui ibunt tecum
And thou shalt break the bottle in the sight of the men that shall go with thee.
||et dices ad eos haec dicit Dominus exercituum sic conteram populum istum et civitatem istam sicut conteritur vas figuli quod non potest ultra instaurari et in Thofeth sepelientur eo quod non sit alius locus ad sepeliendum
And thou shalt say to them: Thus saith the Lord of hosts: Even so will I break this people, and this city, as the potter's vessel is broken, which cannot be made whole again: and they shall be buried in Topheth, because there is no other place to bury in.
||sic faciam loco huic ait Dominus et habitatoribus eius ut ponam civitatem istam sicut Thofeth
Thus will I do to this place, saith the Lord, and to the inhabitants thereof: and I will make this city as Topheth.
||et erunt domus Hierusalem et domus regum Iuda sicut locus Thofeth inmundae omnes domus in quarum domatibus sacrificaverunt omni militiae caeli et libaverunt libamina diis alienis
And the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses of the kings of Juda shall be unclean as the place of Topheth: all the houses upon whose roofs they have sacrificed to all the host of heaven, and have poured out drink offerings to strange gods.
||venit autem Hieremias de Thofeth quo miserat eum Dominus ad prophetandum et stetit in atrio domus Domini et dixit ad omnem populum
Then Jeremias came from Topheth, whither the Lord had sent him to prophesy, and he stood in the court of the house of the Lord, and said to all the people:
||haec dicit Dominus exercituum Deus Israhel ecce ego inducam super civitatem hanc et super omnes urbes eius universa mala quae locutus sum adversum eam quoniam induraverunt cervicem suam ut non audirent sermones meos
Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Behold I will bring in upon this city, and upon all the cities thereof all the evils that I have spoken against it: because they have hardened their necks, that they might not hear my words.
