1 Factum est autem, cum complesset Ieremias loquens ad populum universos sermones Domini Dei eorum, pro quibus miserat eum Dominus Deus eorum ad illos omnia verba haec,
2 dixit Azarias filius Osaiae et Iohanan filius Caree et omnes viri superbi dicentes ad Ieremiam: "Mendacium tu loqueris; non misit te Dominus Deus noster dicens: "Ne ingrediamini Aegyptum, ut illic peregrinemini",
3 sed Baruch filius Neriae incitat te adversum nos, ut tradat nos in manu Chaldaeorum, ut interficiant nos et traducant in Babylonem".
4 Et non audivit Iohanan filius Caree et omnes principes bellatorum et universus populus vocem Domini, ut manerent in terra Iudae.
5 Sed tollens Iohanan filius Caree et universi principes bellatorum universos reliquiarum Iudae, qui reversi fuerant de cunctis gentibus, ad quas fuerant ante dispersi, ut peregrinarentur in terra Iudae,
6 viros et mulieres et parvulos et filias regis et omnem animam, quam reliquerat Nabuzardan princeps satellitum cum Godolia filio Ahicam filii Saphan, et Ieremiam prophetam et Baruch filium Neriae,
7 et ingressi sunt terram Aegypti, quia non oboedierunt voci Domini; et venerunt usque ad Taphnas.
8 Et factus est sermo Domini ad Ieremiam in Taphnis dicens:
9 "Sume lapides grandes in manu tua et absconde eos in caemento, sub pavimento, quod est ad portam domus pharaonis in Taphnis, cernentibus viris Iudaeis;
10 et dices ad eos: Haec dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israel: Ecce ego mittam et assumam Nabuchodonosor regem Babylonis servum meum et ponam thronum eius super lapides istos, quos abscondi, et statuet solium suum super eos;
11 veniensque percutiet terram Aegypti, quos in mortem, in mortem et, quos in captivitatem, in captivitatem et, quos in gladium, in gladium;
12 et succendet ignem in delubris deorum Aegypti et comburet ea et captivos ducet illos et excutiet terram Aegypti, sicut pastor pediculis excutit pallium suum, et egredietur inde in pace;
13 et conteret statuas domus Solis, quae sunt in terra Aegypti, et delubra deorum Aegypti comburet igni".
King James Version
1 And it came to pass, that when Jeremiah had made an end of speaking unto all the people all the words of the LORD their God, for which the LORD their God had sent him to them, even all these words,
2 Then spake Azariah the son of Hoshaiah, and Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the proud men, saying unto Jeremiah, Thou speakest falsely: the LORD our God hath not sent thee to say, Go not into Egypt to sojourn there:
3 But Baruch the son of Neriah setteth thee on against us, for to deliver us into the hand of the Chaldeans, that they might put us to death, and carry us away captives into Babylon.
4 So Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces, and all the people, obeyed not the voice of the LORD, to dwell in the land of Judah.
5 But Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces, took all the remnant of Judah, that were returned from all nations, whither they had been driven, to dwell in the land of Judah;
6 Even men, and women, and children, and the king's daughters, and every person that Nebuzar-adan the captain of the guard had left with Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son of Shaphan, and Jeremiah the prophet, and Baruch the son of Neriah.
7 So they came into the land of Egypt: for they obeyed not the voice of the LORD: thus came they even to Tahpanhes.
8 ¶ Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah in Tahpanhes, saying,
9 Take great stones in thine hand, and hide them in the clay in the brickkiln, which is at the entry of Pharaoh's house in Tahpanhes, in the sight of the men of Judah;
10 And say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will send and take Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my servant, and will set his throne upon these stones that I have hid; and he shall spread his royal pavilion over them.
11 And when he cometh, he shall smite the land of Egypt, and deliver such as are for death to death; and such as are for captivity to captivity; and such as are for the sword to the sword.
12 And I will kindle a fire in the houses of the gods of Egypt; and he shall burn them, and carry them away captives: and he shall array himself with the land of Egypt, as a shepherd putteth on his garment; and he shall go forth from thence in peace.
13 He shall break also the images of Beth-shemesh, that is in the land of Egypt; and the houses of the gods of the Egyptians shall he burn with fire.
