The book of the prophet Jeremiah, chapter 17, Vulgate and King James Version

Chapter 17


   1 Peccatum Iudae scriptum est stilo ferreo, in ungue adamantino exaratum super tabulam cordis eorum et in cornibus ararum eorum,
   2 ut recordarentur filii eorum ararum suarum et palorum suorum iuxta ligna frondentia in collibus excelsis,
   3 montibus in campo." Divitias tuas, omnes thesauros tuos in direptionem dabo, excelsa tua propter peccata in universis finibus tuis.
   4 Et relinques hereditatem tuam, quam dedi tibi; et servire te faciam inimicis tuis in terra, quam ignoras, quoniam ignem succendistis in naribus meis; usque in aeternum ardebit".
   5 Haec dicit Dominus: "Maledictus homo, qui confidit in homine et ponit carnem brachium suum, et a Domino recedit cor eius;
   6 erit enim quasi myricae in deserto et non videbit, cum venerit bonum, sed habitabit in siccitate in deserto, in terra salsuginis et inhabitabili.
   7 Benedictus vir, qui confidit in Domino, et erit Dominus fiducia eius;
   8 et erit quasi lignum, quod transplantatur super aquas, quod ad humorem mittit radices suas et non timebit, cum venerit aestus; et erit folium eius viride, et in anno siccitatis non erit sollicitum nec aliquando desinet facere fructum
   9 Dolosum est cor super omnia et insanabile; quis cognoscet illud?
   10 Ego Dominus scrutans cor et probans renes, qui do unicuique iuxta viam suam et iuxta fructum operum suorum.
   11 Perdix fovit, quae non peperit, ita faciens divitias sed non in iudicio. In dimidio dierum suorum derelinquet eas et in novissimo suo erit insipiens".
   12 Solium gloriae, altitudo a principio, locus sanctificationis nostrae!
   13 Exspectatio Israel, Domine, omnes, qui te derelinquunt, confundentur; recedentes a te in terra scribentur, quoniam dereliquerunt venam aquarum viventium, Dominum.
   14 Sana me, Domine, et sanabor; salvum me fac, et salvus ero, quoniam laus mea tu es.
   15 Ecce ipsi dicunt ad me: "Ubi est verbum Domini? Veniat".
   16 Et ego non institi pro malo apud te et diem calamitatis non desideravi, tu scis: quod egressum est de labiis meis, rectum in conspectu tuo fuit.
   17 Non sis mihi tu formidini; refugium meum tu in die afflictionis.
   18 Confundantur, qui me persequuntur, et non confundar ego; paveant illi, et non paveam ego; induc super eos diem afflictionis et duplici contritione contere eos.
   19 Haec dixit Dominus ad me: "Vade et sta in porta Filiorum populi, per quam ingrediuntur reges Iudae et egrediuntur, et in cunctis portis Ierusalem;
   20 et dices ad eos: Audite verbum Domini, reges Iudae et omnis Iuda cunctique habitatores Ierusalem, qui ingredimini per portas istas.
   21 Haec dicit Dominus: Custodite animas vestras et nolite portare pondera in die sabbati nec inferatis per portas Ierusalem;
   22 et nolite efferre onera de domibus vestris in die sabbati et omne opus non facietis: sanctificate diem sabbati, sicut praecepi patribus vestris.
   23 Et non audierunt nec inclinaverunt aurem suam; sed induraverunt cervicem suam, ne audirent me et ne acciperent disciplinam.
   24 Et erit: si audieritis me, dicit Dominus, ut non inferatis onera per portas civitatis huius in die sabbati, et si sanctificaveritis diem sabbati, ne faciatis in eo omne opus,
   25 ingredientur per portas civitatis huius reges et principes sedentes super solium David et ascendentes in curribus et equis, ipsi et principes eorum, viri Iudae et habitatores Ierusalem; et habitabitur civitas haec in sempiternum.
   26 Et venient de civitatibus Iudae et de circuitu Ierusalem et de terra Beniamin et de Sephela et de montuosis et a Nageb, portantes holocaustum et victimam et sacrificium et tus, et inferent oblationem laudis in domum Domini.
   27 Si autem non audieritis me, ut sanctificetis diem sabbati et ne portetis onus intrantes per portas Ierusalem in die sabbati, succendam ignem in portis eius, et devorabit domos Ierusalem et non exstinguetur".

King James Version

   1 The sin of Judah is written with a pen of iron, and with the point of a diamond: it is graven upon the table of their heart, and upon the horns of your altars;
   2 Whilst their children remember their altars and their groves by the green trees upon the high hills.
   3 O my mountain in the field, I will give thy substance and all thy treasures to the spoil, and thy high places for sin, throughout all thy borders.
   4 And thou, even thyself, shalt discontinue from thine heritage that I gave thee; and I will cause thee to serve thine enemies in the land which thou knowest not: for ye have kindled a fire in mine anger, which shall burn for ever.
   5 ¶ Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
   6 For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.
   7 Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.
   8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
   9 ¶ The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
   10 I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.
   11 As the partridge sitteth on eggs, and hatcheth them not; so he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool.
   12 ¶ A glorious high throne from the beginning is the place of our sanctuary.
   13 O LORD, the hope of Israel, all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of living waters.
   14 Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise.
   15 ¶ Behold, they say unto me, Where is the word of the LORD? let it come now.
   16 As for me, I have not hastened from being a pastor to follow thee: neither have I desired the woeful day; thou knowest: that which came out of my lips was right before thee.
   17 Be not a terror unto me: thou art my hope in the day of evil.
   18 Let them be confounded that persecute me, but let not me be confounded: let them be dismayed, but let not me be dismayed: bring upon them the day of evil, and destroy them with double destruction.
   19 ¶ Thus said the LORD unto me; Go and stand in the gate of the children of the people, whereby the kings of Judah come in, and by the which they go out, and in all the gates of Jerusalem;
   20 And say unto them, Hear ye the word of the LORD, ye kings of Judah, and all Judah, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, that enter in by these gates:
   21 Thus saith the LORD; Take heed to yourselves, and bear no burden on the sabbath day, nor bring it in by the gates of Jerusalem;
   22 Neither carry forth a burden out of your houses on the sabbath day, neither do ye any work, but hallow ye the sabbath day, as I commanded your fathers.
   23 But they obeyed not, neither inclined their ear, but made their neck stiff, that they might not hear, nor receive instruction.
   24 And it shall come to pass, if ye diligently hearken unto me, saith the LORD, to bring in no burden through the gates of this city on the sabbath day, but hallow the sabbath day, to do no work therein;
   25 Then shall there enter into the gates of this city kings and princes sitting upon the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, they, and their princes, the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem: and this city shall remain for ever.
   26 And they shall come from the cities of Judah, and from the places about Jerusalem, and from the land of Benjamin, and from the plain, and from the mountains, and from the south, bringing burnt offerings, and sacrifices, and meat offerings, and incense, and bringing sacrifices of praise, unto the house of the LORD.
   27 But if ye will not hearken unto me to hallow the sabbath day, and not to bear a burden, even entering in at the gates of Jerusalem on the sabbath day; then will I kindle a fire in the gates thereof, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem, and it shall not be quenched.
