||verbum quod factum est ad Hieremiam a Domino dicens
The word that came to Jeremias from the Lord, saying:
||sta in porta domus Domini et praedica ibi verbum istud et dic audite verbum Domini omnis Iuda qui ingredimini per portas has ut adoretis Dominum
Stand in the gate of the house of the Lord, and proclaim there this word, and say: Hear ye the word of the Lord, all ye men of Juda, that enter in at these gates, to adore the Lord.
||haec dicit Dominus exercituum Deus Israhel bonas facite vias vestras et studia vestra et habitabo vobiscum in loco isto
Thus saith the Lord of hosts the God of Israel: Make your ways and your doings good: and I will dwell with you in this place.
||nolite confidere in verbis mendacii dicentes templum Domini templum Domini templum Domini est
Trust not in lying words, saying: The temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord, it is the temple of the Lord.
||quoniam si bene direxeritis vias vestras et studia vestra si feceritis iudicium inter virum et proximum eius
For if you will order well your ways, and your doings: if you will execute judgment between a man and his neighbour,
||advenae et pupillo et viduae non feceritis calumniam nec sanguinem innocentem effuderitis in loco hoc et post deos alienos non ambulaveritis in malum vobismet ipsis
If you oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, and walk not after strange gods to your own hurt,
||habitabo vobiscum in loco isto in terra quam dedi patribus vestris a saeculo usque in saeculum
I will dwell with you in this place: in the land, which I gave to your fathers from the beginning and for evermore.
||ecce vos confiditis vobis in sermonibus mendacii qui non proderunt vobis
Behold you put your trust in lying words, which shall not profit you:
||furari occidere adulterare iurare mendaciter libare Baali et ire post deos alienos quos ignoratis
To steal, to murder, to commit adultery, to swear falsely, to offer to Baalim, and to go after strange gods, which you know not.
||et venistis et stetistis coram me in domo hac in qua invocatum est nomen meum et dixistis liberati sumus eo quod fecerimus omnes abominationes istas
And you have come, and stood before me in this house, in which my name is called upon, and have said: We are delivered, because we have done all these abominations.
||ergo spelunca latronum facta est domus ista in qua invocatum est nomen meum in oculis vestris ego ego sum ego vidi dicit Dominus
Is this house then, in which my name hath been called upon, in your eyes become a den of robbers? I, I am he: I have seen it, saith the Lord.
||ite ad locum meum in Silo ubi habitavit nomen meum a principio et videte quae fecerim ei propter malitiam populi mei Israhel
Go ye to my place in Silo, where my name dwelt from the beginning: and see what I did to it for the wickedness of my people Israel:
||et nunc quia fecistis omnia opera haec dicit Dominus et locutus sum ad vos mane consurgens et loquens et non audistis et vocavi vos et non respondistis
And now, because you have done all these works, saith the Lord: and I have spoken to you rising up early, and speaking, and you have not heard: and I have called you, and you have not answered:
||faciam domui huic in qua invocatum est nomen meum et in qua vos habetis fiduciam et loco quem dedi vobis et patribus vestris sicut feci Silo
I will do to this house, in which my name is called upon, and in which you trust, and to the place which I have given you and your fathers, as I did to Silo.
||et proiciam vos a facie mea sicut proieci omnes fratres vestros universum semen Ephraim
And I will cast you away from before my face, as I have cast away all your brethren, the whole seed of Ephraim.
||tu ergo noli orare pro populo hoc nec adsumas pro eis laudem et orationem et non obsistas mihi quia non exaudiam te
Therefore do not thou pray for this people, nor take to thee praise and supplication for them: and do not withstand me: for I will not hear thee.
||nonne vides quid isti faciant in civitatibus Iuda et in plateis Hierusalem
Seest thou not what they do in the cities of Juda, and in the streets of Jerusalem?
||filii colligunt ligna et patres succendunt ignem et mulieres conspergunt adipem ut faciant placentas Reginae caeli et libent diis alienis et me ad iracundiam provocent
The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead the dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to offer libations to strange gods, and to provoke me to anger.
||numquid me ad iracundiam provocant dicit Dominus nonne semet ipsos in confusionem vultus sui
Do they provoke me to anger, saith the Lord? is it not themselves, to the confusion of their own countenance?
||ideo haec dicit Dominus Deus ecce furor meus et indignatio mea conflatur super locum istum super viros et super iumenta et super lignum regionis et super fruges terrae et succendetur et non extinguetur
Therefore thus saith the Lord God: Behold my wrath and my indignation is enkindled against this place, upon men and upon beasts, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruits of the land, and it shall burn, and shall not be quenched.
||haec dicit Dominus exercituum Deus Israhel holocaustomata vestra addite victimis vestris et comedite carnes
Thus saith the Lord of hosts the God of Israel: Add your burnt offerings to your sacrifices, and eat ye the flesh.
||quia non sum locutus cum patribus vestris et non praecepi eis in die qua eduxi eos de terra Aegypti de verbo holocaustomatum et victimarum
For I spoke not to your fathers, and I commanded them not, in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning the matter of burnt offerings and sacrifices.
||sed hoc verbum praecepi eis dicens audite vocem meam et ero vobis Deus et vos eritis mihi populus et ambulate in omni via quam mandavi vobis ut bene sit vobis
But this thing I commanded them, saying: Hearken to my voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be my people: and walk ye in all the way that I have commanded you, that it may be well with you.
||et non audierunt nec inclinaverunt aurem suam sed abierunt in voluntatibus et pravitate cordis sui mali factique sunt retrorsum et non in ante
But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear: but walked in their own will, and in the perversity of their wicked heart: and went backward and not forward,
||a die qua egressi sunt patres eorum de terra Aegypti usque ad diem hanc et misi ad vos omnes servos meos prophetas per diem consurgens diluculo et mittens
From the day that their fathers came out of the land of Egypt, even to this day. And I have sent to you all my servants the prophets, from day to day, rising up early and sending.
||et non audierunt me nec inclinaverunt aurem suam sed induraverunt cervicem et peius operati sunt quam patres eorum
And they have not hearkened to me: nor inclined their ear: but have hardened their neck, and have done worse than their fathers.
||et loqueris ad eos omnia verba haec et non audient te et vocabis eos et non respondebunt tibi
And thou shalt speak to them all these words, but they will not hearken to thee: and thou shalt call them, but they will not answer thee.
||et dices ad eos haec est gens quae non audivit vocem Domini Dei sui nec recepit disciplinam periit fides et ablata est de ore eorum
And thou shalt say to them: This is a nation which hath not hearkened to the voice of the Lord their God, nor received instruction: faith is lost, and is taken away out of their mouth.
||tonde capillum tuum et proice et sume in directum planctum quia proiecit Dominus et reliquit generationem furoris sui
Cut off thy hair, and cast it away: and take up a lamentation on high: for the Lord hath rejected, and forsaken the generation of his wrath,
||quia fecerunt filii Iuda malum in oculis meis dicit Dominus posuerunt offendicula sua in domo in qua invocatum est nomen meum ut polluerent eam
Because the children of Juda have done evil in my eyes, saith the Lord. They have set their abominations in the house in which my name is called upon, to pollute it;
||et aedificaverunt excelsa Thofeth qui est in valle filii Ennom ut incenderent filios suos et filias suas igni quae non praecepi nec cogitavi in corde meo
And they have built the high places of Topheth, which is in the valley of the son of Ennom, to burn their sons, and their daughters in the fire: which I commanded not, nor thought on in my heart.
||ideo ecce dies venient dicit Dominus et non dicetur amplius Thofeth et vallis filii Ennom sed vallis Interfectionis et sepelient in Thofeth eo quod non sit locus
Therefore behold the days shall come, saith the Lord, and it shall no more be called Topheth, nor the valley of the son of Ennom: but the valley of slaughter: and they shall bury in Topheth, because there is no place.
||et erit morticinum populi huius in cibum volucribus caeli et bestiis terrae et non erit qui abigat
And the carcasses of this people shall be meat for the fowls of the air, and for the beasts of the earth, and there shall be none to drive them away.
||et quiescere faciam de urbibus Iuda et de plateis Hierusalem vocem gaudii et vocem laetitiae vocem sponsi et vocem sponsae in desolatione enim erit terra
And I will cause to cease out of the cities of Juda, and out of the streets of Jerusalem, the voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride: for the land shall be desolate.
