1 Et audivit Phassur filius Em mer sacerdos, qui constitutus erat princeps in domo Domini, Ieremiam prophetantem sermones istos;
2 et percussit Phassur Ieremiam prophetam et misit eum in nervum, quod erat in porta Beniamin superiore in domo Domini.
3 Cumque illuxisset in crastinum, eduxit Phassur Ieremiam de nervo; et dixit ad eum Ieremias: "Non Phassur vocavit Dominus nomen tuum sed Pavorem undique.
4 Quia haec dicit Dominus: Ecce ego dabo te in pavorem, te et omnes amicos tuos, et corruent gladio inimicorum suorum, et oculi tui videbunt; et omnem Iudam dabo in manu regis Babylonis, et traducet eos in Babylonem et percutiet eos gladio.
5 Et dabo universam substantiam civitatis huius et omnem laborem eius omneque pretium et cunctos thesauros regum Iudae dabo in manu inimicorum eorum; et diripient eos et tollent et ducent in Babylonem.
6 Tu autem, Phassur et omnes habitatores domus tuae, ibitis in captivitatem; et in Babylonem venies et ibi morieris ibique sepelieris, tu et omnes amici tui, quibus prophetasti mendacium".
7 Seduxisti me, Domine, et seductus sum; fortior me fuisti et invaluisti. Factus sum in derisum tota die, omnes subsannant me.
8 Quia quotiescumque loquor, vociferor, iniquitatem et vastitatem clamito; et factus est mihi sermo Domini in opprobrium et in derisum tota die.
9 Et dixi: "Non recordabor eius neque loquar ultra in nomine illius". Et factus est in corde meo quasi ignis exaestuans claususque in ossibus meis: et defeci, ferre non sustinens.
10 Audivi enim contumelias multorum et terrorem in circuitu: "Denuntiate, et denuntiemus eum". Omnes pacifici mei observabant lapsum meum: "Forte decipietur, et praevalebimus adversus eum et consequemur ultionem ex eo".
11 Dominus autem mecum est quasi bellator fortis; idcirco, qui persequuntur me, cadent et infirmi erunt. Confundentur vehementer, quia non prosperati sunt; opprobrium sempiternum, quod numquam delebitur.
12 Et tu, Domine exercituum, probator iusti, qui vides renes et cor, videam, quaeso, ultionem tuam ex eis; tibi enim revelavi causam meam.
13 Cantate Domino, laudate Dominum, quia liberavit animam pauperis de manu malorum.
14 Maledicta dies, in qua natus sum; dies, in qua peperit me mater mea, non sit benedicta.
15 Maledictus vir, qui annuntiavit patri meo dicens: "Natus est tibi puer masculus" et gaudio laetificavit eum;
16 sit homo ille, ut sunt civitates, quas subvertit Dominus et non paenituit eum: audiat clamorem mane et ululatum in tempore meridiano,
17 qui non me interfecit a vulva, ut fieret mihi mater mea sepulcrum, et vulva eius conceptus aeternus.
18 Quare de vulva egressus sum, ut viderem laborem et dolorem, et consumerentur in confusione dies mei?
King James Version
1 Now Pashur the son of Immer the priest, who was also chief governor in the house of the LORD, heard that Jeremiah prophesied these things.
2 Then Pashur smote Jeremiah the prophet, and put him in the stocks that were in the high gate of Benjamin, which was by the house of the LORD.
3 And it came to pass on the morrow, that Pashur brought forth Jeremiah out of the stocks. Then said Jeremiah unto him, The LORD hath not called thy name Pashur, but Magor-missabib.
4 For thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will make thee a terror to thyself, and to all thy friends: and they shall fall by the sword of their enemies, and thine eyes shall behold it: and I will give all Judah into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall carry them captive into Babylon, and shall slay them with the sword.
5 Moreover I will deliver all the strength of this city, and all the labours thereof, and all the precious things thereof, and all the treasures of the kings of Judah will I give into the hand of their enemies, which shall spoil them, and take them, and carry them to Babylon.
6 And thou, Pashur, and all that dwell in thine house shall go into captivity: and thou shalt come to Babylon, and there thou shalt die, and shalt be buried there, thou, and all thy friends, to whom thou hast prophesied lies.
7 ¶ O LORD, thou hast deceived me, and I was deceived: thou art stronger than I, and hast prevailed: I am in derision daily, every one mocketh me.
8 For since I spake, I cried out, I cried violence and spoil; because the word of the LORD was made a reproach unto me, and a derision, daily.
9 Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.
10 ¶ For I heard the defaming of many, fear on every side. Report, say they, and we will report it. All my familiars watched for my halting, saying, Peradventure he will be enticed, and we shall prevail against him, and we shall take our revenge on him.
11 But the LORD is with me as a mighty terrible one: therefore my persecutors shall stumble, and they shall not prevail: they shall be greatly ashamed; for they shall not prosper: their everlasting confusion shall never be forgotten.
12 But, O LORD of hosts, that triest the righteous, and seest the reins and the heart, let me see thy vengeance on them: for unto thee have I opened my cause.
13 Sing unto the LORD, praise ye the LORD: for he hath delivered the soul of the poor from the hand of evildoers.
14 ¶ Cursed be the day wherein I was born: let not the day wherein my mother bare me be blessed.
15 Cursed be the man who brought tidings to my father, saying, A man child is born unto thee; making him very glad.
16 And let that man be as the cities which the LORD overthrew, and repented not: and let him hear the cry in the morning, and the shouting at noontide;
17 Because he slew me not from the womb; or that my mother might have been my grave, and her womb to be always great with me.
18 Wherefore came I forth out of the womb to see labour and sorrow, that my days should be consumed with shame?
