1 Et factum est verbum Domi ni ad me dicens:
2 "Non acci pies uxorem, et non erunt tibi filii et filiae in loco isto.
3 Quia haec dicit Dominus super filios et filias, qui generantur in loco isto, et super matres eorum, quae genuerunt eos, et super patres eorum, de quorum stirpe sunt nati in terra hac:
4 Mortibus aegrotationum morientur, non plangentur et non sepelientur; in sterquilinium super faciem terrae erunt et gladio et fame consumentur, et erit cadaver eorum in escam volatilibus caeli et bestiis terrae".
5 Haec enim dixit Dominus: "Ne ingrediaris domum convivii neque vadas ad plangendum neque lugebis eos, quia abstuli pacem meam a populo isto, dicit Dominus, misericordiam et miserationes.
6 Et morientur grandes et parvi in terra ista, non sepelientur neque plangentur, et non se incident, neque calvitium fiet pro eis.
7 Et non frangent lugenti panem ad consolandum super mortuo et non dabunt ei calicem ad consolandum super patre suo et matre.
8 Et domum convivii non ingredieris, ut sedeas cum eis et comedas et bibas.
9 Quia haec dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israel: Ecce ego auferam de loco isto in oculis vestris et in diebus vestris vocem gaudii et vocem laetitiae, vocem sponsi et vocem sponsae.
10 Et cum annuntiaveris populo huic omnia verba haec, et dixerint tibi: "Quare locutus est Dominus super nos omne malum grande istud? Quae iniquitas nostra et quod peccatum nostrum, quod peccavimus Domino Deo nostro?",
11 dices ad eos: Quia dereliquerunt me patres vestri, ait Dominus, et abierunt post deos alienos et servierunt eis et adoraverunt eos et me dereliquerunt et legem meam non custodierunt.
12 Sed et vos peius operati estis quam patres vestri: ecce enim ambulat unusquisque post pravitatem cordis sui mali, ut me non audiat.
13 Et eiciam vos de terra hac in terram, quam ignoratis, vos et patres vestri; et servietis ibi diis alienis, die ac nocte, quia non dabo vobis gratiam.
14 Propterea ecce dies veniunt, dicit Dominus, et non dicetur ultra: "Vivit Dominus, qui eduxit filios Israel de terra Aegypti!",
15 sed: "Vivit Dominus, qui eduxit filios Israel de terra aquilonis et de universis terris, ad quas eieci eos!". Et reducam eos in terram suam, quam dedi patribus eorum.
16 Ecce ego mittam piscatores multos, dicit Dominus, et piscabuntur eos; et post haec mittam eis multos venatores, et venabuntur eos de omni monte et de omni colle et de cavernis petrarum.
17 Quia oculi mei super omnes vias eorum: non sunt absconditae a facie mea, et non est occulta iniquitas eorum ab oculis meis.
18 Et reddam primum dupliciter iniquitates et peccata eorum, quia contaminaverunt terram meam in morticinis idolorum suorum et abominationibus suis impleverunt hereditatem meam".
19 Domine, fortitudo mea et praesidium meum et refugium meum in die tribulationis; ad te gentes venient ab extremis terrae et dicent: "Vere mendacium possederunt patres nostri, vanitatem, quae nihil prodest".
20 Numquid faciet sibi homo deos, et ipsi non sunt dii?
21 "Idcirco ecce ego ostendam eis per vicem hanc, ostendam eis manum meam et virtutem meam, et scient quia nomen mihi Dominus".
King James Version
1 The word of the LORD came also unto me, saying,
2 Thou shalt not take thee a wife, neither shalt thou have sons or daughters in this place.
3 For thus saith the LORD concerning the sons and concerning the daughters that are born in this place, and concerning their mothers that bare them, and concerning their fathers that begat them in this land;
4 They shall die of grievous deaths; they shall not be lamented; neither shall they be buried; but they shall be as dung upon the face of the earth: and they shall be consumed by the sword, and by famine; and their carcases shall be meat for the fowls of heaven, and for the beasts of the earth.
5 For thus saith the LORD, Enter not into the house of mourning, neither go to lament nor bemoan them: for I have taken away my peace from this people, saith the LORD, even lovingkindness and mercies.
6 Both the great and the small shall die in this land: they shall not be buried, neither shall men lament for them, nor cut themselves, nor make themselves bald for them:
7 Neither shall men tear themselves for them in mourning, to comfort them for the dead; neither shall men give them the cup of consolation to drink for their father or for their mother.
8 Thou shalt not also go into the house of feasting, to sit with them to eat and to drink.
9 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will cause to cease out of this place in your eyes, and in your days, the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride.
10 ¶ And it shall come to pass, when thou shalt shew this people all these words, and they shall say unto thee, Wherefore hath the LORD pronounced all this great evil against us? or what is our iniquity? or what is our sin that we have committed against the LORD our God?
11 Then shalt thou say unto them, Because your fathers have forsaken me, saith the LORD, and have walked after other gods, and have served them, and have worshipped them, and have forsaken me, and have not kept my law;
12 And ye have done worse than your fathers; for, behold, ye walk every one after the imagination of his evil heart, that they may not hearken unto me:
13 Therefore will I cast you out of this land into a land that ye know not, neither ye nor your fathers; and there shall ye serve other gods day and night; where I will not shew you favour.
14 ¶ Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be said, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;
15 But, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.
16 ¶ Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith the LORD, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.
17 For mine eyes are upon all their ways: they are not hid from my face, neither is their iniquity hid from mine eyes.
18 And first I will recompense their iniquity and their sin double; because they have defiled my land, they have filled mine inheritance with the carcases of their detestable and abominable things.
19 O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit.
20 Shall a man make gods unto himself, and they are no gods?
21 Therefore, behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know mine hand and my might; and they shall know that my name is The LORD.
