1 Verbum, quod factum est ad Ieremiam a Domino dicens:
2 "Haec dicit Dominus, Deus Israel, dicens: Scribe tibi omnia verba, quae locutus sum ad te, in libro;
3 ecce enim dies veniunt, dicit Dominus, et convertam sortem populi mei Israel et Iudae, ait Dominus, et convertam eos ad terram, quam dedi patribus eorum, et possidebunt eam".
4 Et haec verba, quae locutus est Dominus ad Israel et ad Iudam:
5 "Quoniam haec dicit Dominus: Vocem terroris audivimus, formido et non est pax.
6 Interrogate et videte, si generat masculus; quare ergo vidi omnis viri manum super lumbum suum quasi parturientis, et conversae sunt universae facies in auruginem?
7 Vae, quia magna dies illa, nec est similis eius, tempusque tribulationis est Iacob, et ex ipso salvabitur.
8 Et erit: in die illa, ait Dominus exercituum, conteram iugum eius de collo tuo et vincula tua dirumpam; et non dominabuntur ei amplius alieni,
9 sed servient Domino Deo suo et David regi suo, quem suscitabo eis.
10 Tu ergo ne timeas, serve meus Iacob, ait Dominus, neque paveas, Israel, quia ecce ego salvabo te de terra longinqua et semen tuum de terra captivitatis eorum; et revertetur Iacob et quiescet et securus erit, et non erit quem formidet;
11 quoniam tecum ego sum, ait Dominus, ut salvem te. Faciam enim consummationem in cunctis gentibus, in quibus dispersi te; te autem non faciam in consummationem, sed castigabo te in iudicio nec quasi innocenti parcam tibi.
12 Quia haec dicit Dominus: Insanabilis fractura tua, pessima plaga tua;
13 non est qui iudicet iudicium tuum; sunt ulceri medicamina, tibi vero cicatrix non obducitur.
14 Omnes amatores tui obliti sunt tui, te non quaerunt; plaga enim inimici percussi te castigatione crudeli: propter multitudinem iniquitatis tuae dura facta sunt peccata tua.
15 Quid clamas super contritione tua? Insanabilis est dolor tuus. Propter multitudinem iniquitatis tuae et propter dura peccata tua feci haec tibi.
16 Propterea omnes, qui comedunt te, devorabuntur, et universi hostes tui in captivitatem ducentur, et, qui te vastant, vastabuntur, cunctosque praedatores tuos dabo in praedam.
17 Obducam enim cicatricem tibi et a vulneribus tuis sanabo te, dicit Dominus, quia Eiectam vocaverunt te, Sion haec, quae non habebat requirentem.
18 Haec dicit Dominus: Ecce ego convertam sortem tabernaculorum Iacob et tectis eius miserebor, et aedificabitur civitas in ruinis suis, et arx in loco suo fundabitur;
19 et egredietur de eis laus voxque ludentium. Et multiplicabo eos, et non imminuentur, et glorificabo eos, et non attenuabuntur.
20 Et erunt filii eius sicut a principio, et coetus eius coram me permanebit, et visitabo adversum omnes, qui tribulant eum.
21 Et erit dux eius ex eo, et princeps de medio eius procedet; et applicabo eum, et accedet ad me. Quis enim iste est, qui pignori dabit cor suum, ut appropinquet mihi?, ait Dominus.
22 Et eritis mihi in populum, et ego ero vobis in Deum.
23 Ecce turbo Domini, furor egrediens, procella ruens; in capite impiorum conquiescet.
24 Non cessabit ab ira indignationis Dominus, donec faciat et compleat cogitationes cordis sui; in novissimo dierum intellegetis ea.
King James Version
1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,
2 Thus speaketh the LORD God of Israel, saying, Write thee all the words that I have spoken unto thee in a book.
3 For, lo, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the LORD: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.
4 ¶ And these are the words that the LORD spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah.
5 For thus saith the LORD; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace.
6 Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness?
7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.
8 For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him:
9 But they shall serve the LORD their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them.
10 ¶ Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the LORD; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid.
11 For I am with thee, saith the LORD, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.
12 For thus saith the LORD, Thy bruise is incurable, and thy wound is grievous.
13 There is none to plead thy cause, that thou mayest be bound up: thou hast no healing medicines.
14 All thy lovers have forgotten thee; they seek thee not; for I have wounded thee with the wound of an enemy, with the chastisement of a cruel one, for the multitude of thine iniquity; because thy sins were increased.
15 Why criest thou for thine affliction? thy sorrow is incurable for the multitude of thine iniquity: because thy sins were increased, I have done these things unto thee.
16 Therefore all they that devour thee shall be devoured; and all thine adversaries, every one of them, shall go into captivity; and they that spoil thee shall be a spoil, and all that prey upon thee will I give for a prey.
17 For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.
18 ¶ Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will bring again the captivity of Jacob's tents, and have mercy on his dwellingplaces; and the city shall be builded upon her own heap, and the palace shall remain after the manner thereof.
19 And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small.
20 Their children also shall be as aforetime, and their congregation shall be established before me, and I will punish all that oppress them.
21 And their nobles shall be of themselves, and their governor shall proceed from the midst of them; and I will cause him to draw near, and he shall approach unto me: for who is this that engaged his heart to approach unto me? saith the LORD.
22 And ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
23 Behold, the whirlwind of the LORD goeth forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked.
24 The fierce anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have done it, and until he have performed the intents of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it.
