Jeremiah



The book of the prophet Jeremiah, chapter 5, Vulgate and King James Version

Chapter 5

Vulgate


   1 Circuite vias Ierusalem et aspicite et considerate et quaerite in plateis eius, an inveniatis virum, an sit qui faciat iudicium et quaerentem fidem, et propitius ero ei.
   2 Quod si etiam "Vivit Dominus!" dixerint, certe falso iurabunt.
   3 Domine, nonne oculi tui respiciunt fidem? Percussisti eos, et non doluerunt, attrivisti eos, et renuerunt accipere disciplinam: induraverunt facies suas supra petram, noluerunt reverti.
   4 Ego autem dixi: "Ecce pauperes illi stulte agunt, quia ignorant viam Domini, iudicium Dei sui.
   5 Ibo igitur ad optimates et loquar eis; ipsi enim noverunt viam Domini, iudicium Dei sui". Ecce hi simul confregerunt iugum, ruperunt vincula.
   6 Idcirco percussit eos leo de silva, lupus deserti vastabit eos, pardus vigilans super civitates eorum: omnis, qui egressus fuerit ex eis, lacerabitur, quia multiplicatae sunt praevaricationes eorum, confortatae sunt aversiones eorum.
   7 "Super quo propitius tibi esse potero? Filii tui dereliquerunt me et iuraverunt in his, qui non sunt dii; saturavi eos, et moechati sunt et in domum meretricis gregatim confluebant.
   8 Equi impinguati et admissarii facti sunt: unusquisque ad uxorem proximi sui hinniebat.
   9 Numquid super his non visitabo, dicit Dominus, et in gente tali non ulciscetur anima mea?
   10 Ascendite muros eius et dissipate, consummationem autem nolite facere; auferte propagines eius, quia non sunt Domini.
   11 Praevaricatione enim praevaricata est in me domus Israel et domus Iudae", ait Dominus.
   12 Negaverunt Dominum et dixerunt: "Non est ipse; neque veniet super nos malum, et gladium et famem non videbimus.
   13 Prophetae erunt in ventum, et responsum non est in eis. Haec ergo evenient illis".
   14 Propterea haec dicit Dominus, Deus exercituum: "Quia locuti estis verbum istud, ecce ego do verba mea in ore tuo in ignem et populum istum in ligna, et vorabit eos.
   15 Ecce ego adducam super vos gentem de longinquo, domus Israel, ait Dominus, gentem robustam, gentem antiquam, gentem, cuius ignorabis linguam nec intelleges quid loquatur.
   16 Pharetra eius quasi sepulcrum patens universi fortes.
   17 Et comedet segetes tuas et panem tuum, devorabit filios tuos et filias tuas, comedet gregem tuum et armenta tua, comedet vineam tuam et ficum tuam; et conteret urbes munitas tuas, in quibus tu habes fiduciam, gladio.
   18 Verumtamen et in diebus illis, ait Dominus, non faciam in vobis consummationem".
   19 Quod si dixeritis: "Quare fecit nobis Dominus Deus noster haec omnia?", dices ad eos: "Sicut dereliquistis me et servistis diis alienis in terra vestra, sic servietis alienis in terra non vestra".
   20 Annuntiate hoc domui Iacob et auditum facite in Iuda dicentes:
   21 "Audi, popule stulte, qui non habes cor, qui habentes oculos non vident, et aures et non audiunt.
   22 Numquid me non timebitis, ait Dominus, et a facie mea non trepidabitis? Qui posui arenam terminum mari, praeceptum sempiternum, quod non praeteribit; et commovebuntur et non poterunt, et intumescent fluctus eius, et non transibunt illud".
   23 Populo autem huic factum est cor contumax et rebelle; recesserunt et abierunt
   24 et non dixerunt in corde suo: "Metuamus Dominum Deum nostrum, qui dat nobis pluviam temporaneam et serotinam in tempore suo, hebdomadas statutas messis custodientem nobis".
   25 Iniquitates vestrae declinaverunt haec, et peccata vestra prohibuerunt bonum a vobis,
   26 quia inventi sunt in populo meo impii, insidiantes quasi incurvati aucupes, laqueos ponentes ad capiendos viros.
   27 Sicut decipula plena avibus, sic domus eorum plenae dolo; ideo magnificati sunt et ditati,
   28 incrassati sunt et impinguati: et transgressi sunt terminos mali. Causam non iudicaverunt, causam pupilli, ut ipsi prospere agant, et iudicium pauperum non iudicaverunt.
   29 Numquid super his non visitabo, dicit Dominus, aut super gentem huiuscemodi non ulciscetur anima mea?
   30 Stupor et mirabilia facta sunt in terra:
   31 prophetae prophetabant mendacium, et sacerdotes applaudebant manibus suis, et populus meus dilexit talia. Quid igitur facietis in novissimo eius?

King James Version


   1 Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be any that executeth judgment, that seeketh the truth; and I will pardon it.
   2 And though they say, The LORD liveth; surely they swear falsely.
   3 O LORD, are not thine eyes upon the truth? thou hast stricken them, but they have not grieved; thou hast consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction: they have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return.
   4 Therefore I said, Surely these are poor; they are foolish: for they know not the way of the LORD, nor the judgment of their God.
   5 I will get me unto the great men, and will speak unto them; for they have known the way of the LORD, and the judgment of their God: but these have altogether broken the yoke, and burst the bonds.
   6 Wherefore a lion out of the forest shall slay them, and a wolf of the evenings shall spoil them, a leopard shall watch over their cities: every one that goeth out thence shall be torn in pieces: because their transgressions are many, and their backslidings are increased.
   7 ¶ How shall I pardon thee for this? thy children have forsaken me, and sworn by them that are no gods: when I had fed them to the full, they then committed adultery, and assembled themselves by troops in the harlots' houses.
   8 They were as fed horses in the morning: every one neighed after his neighbour's wife.
   9 Shall I not visit for these things? saith the LORD: and shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?
   10 ¶ Go ye up upon her walls, and destroy; but make not a full end: take away her battlements; for they are not the LORD'S.
   11 For the house of Israel and the house of Judah have dealt very treacherously against me, saith the LORD.
   12 They have belied the LORD, and said, It is not he; neither shall evil come upon us; neither shall we see sword nor famine:
   13 And the prophets shall become wind, and the word is not in them: thus shall it be done unto them.
   14 Wherefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, Because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them.
   15 Lo, I will bring a nation upon you from far, O house of Israel, saith the LORD: it is a mighty nation, it is an ancient nation, a nation whose language thou knowest not, neither understandest what they say.
   16 Their quiver is as an open sepulchre, they are all mighty men.
   17 And they shall eat up thine harvest, and thy bread, which thy sons and thy daughters should eat: they shall eat up thy flocks and thine herds: they shall eat up thy vines and thy fig trees: they shall impoverish thy fenced cities, wherein thou trustedst, with the sword.
   18 Nevertheless in those days, saith the LORD, I will not make a full end with you.
   19 ¶ And it shall come to pass, when ye shall say, Wherefore doeth the LORD our God all these things unto us? then shalt thou answer them, Like as ye have forsaken me, and served strange gods in your land, so shall ye serve strangers in a land that is not your's.
   20 Declare this in the house of Jacob, and publish it in Judah, saying,
   21 Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not:
   22 Fear ye not me? saith the LORD: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it?
   23 But this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone.
   24 Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the LORD our God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest.
   25 ¶ Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you.
   26 For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men.
   27 As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich.
   28 They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge.
   29 Shall I not visit for these things? saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?
   30 ¶ A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land;
   31 The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?
