||verbum quod factum est ad Hieremiam a Domino in anno decimo Sedeciae regis Iuda ipse est annus octavusdecimus Nabuchodonosor
The word that came to Jeremias from the Lord in the tenth year of Sedecias king of Juda: the same is the eighteenth year of Nabuchodonosor.
||tunc exercitus regis Babylonis obsidebat Hierusalem et Hieremias propheta erat clausus in atrio carceris qui erat in domo regis Iuda
At that time the army of the king of Babylon besieged Jerusalem: and Jeremias the prophet was shut up in the court of the prison, which was in the house of the king of Juda.
||clauserat enim eum Sedecias rex Iuda dicens quare vaticinaris dicens haec dicit Dominus ecce ego dabo civitatem istam in manu regis Babylonis et capiet eam
For Sedecias king of Juda had shut him up, saying: Why dost thou prophesy, saying: Thus saith the Lord: Behold I will give this city into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall take it?
||et Sedecias rex Iuda non effugiet de manu Chaldeorum sed tradetur in manu regis Babylonis et loquetur os eius cum ore illius et oculi eius oculos illius videbunt
And Sedecias king of Juda shall not escape out of the hand of the Chaldeans: but he shall be delivered into the hands of the king of Babylon: and he shall speak to him mouth to mouth, and his eyes shall see his eyes.
||et in Babylonem ducet Sedeciam et ibi erit donec visitem eum ait Dominus si autem dimicaveritis adversum Chaldeos nihil prosperum habebitis
And he shall lead Sedecias to Babylon: and he shall be there till I visit him, saith the Lord. But if you will fight against the Chaldeans, you shall have no success.
||et dixit Hieremias factum est verbum Domini ad me dicens
And Jeremias said: The word of the Lord came to me, saying:
||ecce Anamehel filius Sellum patruelis tuus veniet ad te dicens eme tibi agrum meum qui est in Anathoth tibi enim conpetit ex propinquitate ut emas
Behold, Hanameel the son of Sellum thy cousin shall come to thee, saying: Buy thee my field, which is in Anathoth, for it is thy right to buy it, being next akin.
||et venit ad me Anamehel filius patrui mei secundum verbum Domini ad vestibulum carceris et ait ad me posside agrum meum qui est in Anathoth in terra Beniamin quia tibi conpetit hereditas et tu propinquus ut possideas intellexi autem quod verbum Domini esset
And Hanameel my uncle's son came to me, according to the word of the Lord, to the entry of the prison, and said to me: Buy my field, which is in Anathoth in the land of Benjamin: for the right of inheritance is thine, and thou art next of kin to possess it. And I understood that this was the word of the Lord.
||et emi agrum ab Anamehel filio patrui mei qui est in Anathoth et adpendi ei argentum septem stateres et decem argenteos
And I bought the field of Hanameel my uncle's son, that is in Anathoth: and I weighed him the money, seven staters, and ten pieces of silver.
||et scripsi in libro et signavi et adhibui testes et adpendi argentum in statera
And I wrote it in a book and sealed it, and took witnesses: and I weighed him the money in the balances.
||et accepi librum possessionis signatum stipulationes et rata et signa forinsecus
And I took the deed of the purchase that was sealed, and the stipulations, and the ratifications with the seals that were on the outside.
||et dedi librum possessionis Baruch filio Neri filii Maasiae in oculis Anamehel patruelis mei et in oculis testium qui scripti erant in libro emptionis in oculis omnium Iudaeorum qui sedebant in atrio carceris
And I gave the deed of the purchase to Baruch the son of Neri the son of Maasias in the sight of Hanameel my uncle's son, in the presence of the witnesses that subscribed the book of the purchase, and before all the Jews that sat in the court of the prison.
||et praecepi Baruch coram eis dicens
And I charged Baruch before them, saying:
||haec dicit Dominus exercituum Deus Israhel sume libros istos librum emptionis hunc signatum et librum hunc qui apertus est et pones illos in vase fictili ut permanere possint diebus multis
Thus saith the Lord of hosts the God of Israel: Take these writings, this deed of the purchase that is sealed up, and this deed that is open: and put them in an earthen vessel, that they may continue many days.
||haec enim dicit Dominus exercituum Deus Israhel adhuc possidebuntur domus et agri et vineae in terra ista
For thus saith the Lord of hosts the God of Israel: Houses, and fields, and vineyards shall be possessed again in this land.
||et oravi ad Dominum postquam tradidi librum possessionis Baruch filio Neri dicens
And after I had delivered the deed of purchase to Baruch the son of Neri, I prayed to the Lord, saying:
||heu heu heu Domine Deus ecce tu fecisti caelum et terram in fortitudine tua magna et in brachio tuo extento non erit tibi difficile omne verbum
Alas, alas, alas, O Lord God, behold thou hast made heaven and earth by thy great power, and thy stretched out arm: no word shall be hard to thee:
||qui facis misericordiam in milibus et reddes iniquitatem patrum in sinu filiorum eorum post eos fortissime magne potens Dominus exercituum nomen tibi
Thou shewest mercy unto thousands, and returnest the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them: O most mighty, great, and powerful, the Lord of hosts is thy name.
||magnus consilio et inconprehensibilis cogitatu cuius oculi aperti sunt super omnes vias filiorum Adam ut reddas unicuique secundum vias suas et secundum fructum adinventionum eius
Great in counsel, and incomprehensible in thought: whose eyes are open upon all the ways of the children of Adam, to render unto every one according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his devices.
||qui posuisti signa et portenta in terra Aegypti usque ad diem hanc et in Israhel et in hominibus et fecisti tibi nomen sicut est dies haec
Who hast set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt even until this day, and in Israel, and amongst men, and hast made thee a name as at this day.
||et eduxisti populum tuum Israhel de terra Aegypti in signis et in portentis et in manu robusta et in brachio extento et in terrore magno
And hast brought forth thy people Israel, out of the land of Egypt with signs, and with wonders, and with a strong hand, and a stretched out arm, and with great terror.
||et dedisti eis terram hanc quam iurasti patribus eorum ut dares eis terram fluentem lacte et melle
And hast given them this land which thou didst swear to their fathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey.
||et ingressi sunt et possederunt eam et non oboedierunt voci tuae et in lege tua non ambulaverunt omnia quae mandasti eis ut facerent non fecerunt et evenerunt eis omnia mala haec
And they came in, and possessed it: but they obeyed not thy voice, and they walked not in thy law: and they did not any of those things that thou didst command them to do, and all these evils are come upon them.
||ecce munitiones extructae sunt adversum civitatem ut capiatur et urbs data est in manu Chaldeorum qui proeliantur adversum eam a facie gladii et famis et pestilentiae et quaecumque locutus es acciderunt ut ipse tu cernis
Behold works are built up against the city to take it: and the city is given into the hands of the Chaldeans, who fight against it, by the sword, and the famine, and the pestilence: and what thou hast spoken, is all come to pass, as thou thyself seest.
||et tu dicis mihi Domine Deus eme agrum argento et adhibe testes cum urbs data sit in manu Chaldeorum
And sayest thou to me, O Lord God: Buy a field for money, and take witnesses, whereas the city is given into the hands of the Chaldeans?
||et factum est verbum Domini ad Hieremiam dicens
And the word of the Lord came to Jeremias, saying:
||ecce ego Dominus Deus universae carnis numquid mihi difficile erit omne verbum
Behold I am the Lord the God of all flesh: shall any thing be hard for me?
||propterea haec dicit Dominus ecce ego tradam civitatem istam in manu Chaldeorum et in manu regis Babylonis et capiet eam
Therefore thus saith the Lord: Behold I will deliver this city into the hands of the Chaldeans, and into the hands of the king of Babylon, and they shall take it.
||et venient Chaldei proeliantes adversum urbem hanc et succendent eam igni et conburent eam et domos in quarum domatibus sacrificabant Baal et libabant diis alienis libamina ad inritandum me
And the Chaldeans that fight against this city, shall come and set it on fire, and burn it, with the houses upon whose roofs they offered sacrifice to Baal, and poured out drink offerings to strange gods, to provoke me to wrath.
||erant enim filii Israhel et filii Iuda iugiter facientes malum in oculis meis ab adulescentia sua filii Israhel qui usque nunc exacerbant me in opere manuum suarum dicit Dominus
For the children of Israel, and the children of Juda, have continually done evil in my eyes from their youth: the children of Israel who even till now provoke me with the work of their hands, saith the Lord.
||quia in furore et in indignatione mea facta est mihi civitas haec a die qua aedificaverunt eam usque ad diem istam qua aufertur de conspectu meo
For this city hath been to me a provocation and indignation from the day that they built it, until this day, in which it shall be taken out of my sight.
||propter malitiam filiorum Israhel et filiorum Iuda quam fecerunt ad iracundiam me provocantes ipsi et reges eorum principes eorum et sacerdotes et prophetae eorum vir Iuda et habitatores Hierusalem
Because of all the evil of the children of Israel, and of the children of Juda, which they have done, provoking me to wrath, they and their kings, their princes, and their priests, and their prophets, the men of Juda, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
||et verterunt ad me terga et non facies cum docerem eos diluculo et erudirem et nollent audire ut acciperent disciplinam
And they have turned their backs to me, and not their faces: when I taught them early in the morning, and instructed them, and they would not hearken to receive instruction.
||et posuerunt idola sua in domo in qua invocatum est nomen meum ut polluerent eam
And they have set their idols in the house, in which my name is called upon, to defile it.
||et aedificaverunt excelsa Baal quae sunt in valle filii Ennom ut initiarent filios suos et filias suas Moloch quod non mandavi eis nec ascendit in cor meum ut facerent abominationem hanc et in peccatum deducerent Iudam
And they have built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Ennom, to consecrate their sons and their daughters to Moloch: which I commanded them not, neither entered it into my heart, that they should do this abomination, and cause Juda to sin.
||et nunc propter ista haec dicit Dominus Deus Israhel ad civitatem hanc de qua vos dicitis quod tradatur in manu regis Babylonis in gladio et in fame et in peste
And now, therefore, thus saith the Lord the God of Israel to this city, whereof you say that it shall be delivered into the hands of the king of Babylon by the sword, and by famine, and by pestilence:
||ecce ego congregabo eos de universis terris ad quas eieci eos in furore meo et in ira mea et in indignatione grandi et reducam eos ad locum istum et habitare eos faciam confidenter
Behold I will gather them together out of all the lands to which I have cast them out in my anger, and in my wrath, and in my great indignation: and I will bring them again into this place, and will cause them to dwell securely.
||et erunt mihi in populum et ego ero eis in Deum
And they shall be my people, and I will be their God.
||et dabo eis cor unum et viam unam ut timeant me universis diebus et bene sit eis et filiis eorum post eos
And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me all days: and that it may be well with them, and with their children after them.
||et feriam eis pactum sempiternum et non desinam eis benefacere et timorem meum dabo in corde eorum ut non recedant a me
And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, and will not cease to do them good: and I will give my fear in their heart, that they may not revolt from me.
||et laetabor super eis cum bene eis fecero et plantabo eos in terra ista in veritate in toto corde meo et in tota anima mea
And I will rejoice over them, when I shall do them good: and I will plant them in this land in truth, with my whole heart, and with all my soul.
||quia haec dicit Dominus sicut adduxi super populum istum omne malum hoc grande sic adducam super eos omne bonum quod ego loquor ad eos
For thus saith the Lord: As I have brought upon this people all this great evil: so will I bring upon them all the good that I now speak to them.
||et possidebuntur agri in terra ista de qua vos dicitis quod deserta sit eo quod non remanserit homo et iumentum et data sit in manu Chaldeorum
And fields shall be purchased in this land: whereof you say that it is desolate, because there remaineth neither man nor beast, and it is given into the hands of the Chaldeans.
||agri pecunia ementur et scribentur in libro et inprimetur signum et testis adhibebitur in terra Beniamin et in circuitu Hierusalem in civitatibus Iuda et in civitatibus montanis et in civitatibus campestribus et in civitatibus quae ad austrum sunt quia convertam captivitatem eorum ait Dominus
Fields shall be bought for money, and deeds shall be written, and sealed, and witnesses shall be taken, in the land of Benjamin, and round about Jerusalem, in the cities of Juda, and in the cities on the mountains, and in the cities of the plains, and in the cities that are towards the south: for I will bring back their captivity, saith the Lord.
