Jeremiah



The book of the prophet Jeremiah, chapter 6, Vulgate and King James Version

Chapter 6

Vulgate


   1 Fugite, filii Beniamin, de medio Ierusalem; et in Thecua clangite bucina et super Bethcharem levate vexillum, quia malum visum est ab aquilone et contritio magna.
   2 Speciosam et delicatam silere feci filiam Sion.
   3 Ad eam venient pastores et greges eorum, figent in ea tentoria in circuitu; pascet unusquisque partem suam.
   4 "Sanctificate super eam bellum, consurgite, et ascendamus in meridie; vae nobis, quia declinavit dies, quia longiores factae sunt umbrae vesperi!
   5 Surgite, et ascendamus in nocte et dissipemus domos eius".
   6 Quia haec dicit Dominus exercituum: "Caedite lignum eius et fundite circa Ierusalem aggerem; haec est civitas visitationis, omnis calumnia in medio eius.
   7 Sicut effluere facit cisterna aquam suam, sic illa effluere facit malitiam suam; violentia et vastitas auditur in ea, coram me semper afflictio et plaga.
   8 Erudire, Ierusalem, ne forte recedat anima mea a te, ne forte ponam te desertam, terram inhabitabilem".
   9 Haec dicit Dominus exercituum: "Usque ad racemum colligent quasi in vinea reliquias Israel. Converte manum tuam quasi vindemiator ad palmites".
   10 Cui loquar et quem contestabor, ut audiat? Ecce incircumcisae aures eorum, et audire non possunt; ecce verbum Domini factum est eis in opprobrium, et non suscipient illud.
   11 Idcirco furore Domini plenus sum, laboravi sustinens." Effunde super parvulum foris et super concilium iuvenum simul; etiam vir cum muliere capietur, senex cum pleno dierum.
   12 Et transibunt domus eorum ad alteros, agri et uxores pariter, quia extendam manum meam super habitantes terram", dicit Dominus.
   13 A minore quippe usque ad maiorem omnes avaritiae student, et a propheta usque ad sacerdotem cuncti faciunt dolum.
   14 Et curant contritionem populi mei in levitate dicentes: "Pax, pax"; et non est pax.
   15 Confusi sunt, quia abominationem fecerunt; quin potius confusione non sunt confusi et erubescere nescierunt." Quam ob rem cadent inter ruentes; tempore, quo visitavero eos, corruent", dicit Dominus.
   16 Haec dicit Dominus: "State super vias et videte et interrogate de semitis antiquis, quae sit via bona, et ambulate in ea et invenietis refrigerium animabus vestris". Et dixerunt: "Non ambulabimus!".
   17 Et constitui super vos speculatores: "Audite vocem tubae". Et dixerunt: "Non audiemus!".
   18 Ideo audite, gentes, et cognosce, congregatio, quanta ego faciam eis.
   19 Audi terra: "Ecce ego adducam mala super populum istum, fructum cogitationum eorum, quia verba mea non audierunt et legem meam proiecerunt.
   20 Ut quid mihi tus, quod de Saba venit, et calamus suave olens de terra longinqua? Holocautomata vestra non sunt accepta, et victimae vestrae non placent mihi".
   21 Propterea haec dicit Dominus: "Ecce ego dabo in populum istum offendicula, et offendent in eis patres et filii simul, vicinus et proximus peribunt".
   22 Haec dicit Dominus: "Ecce populus venit de terra aquilonis, et gens magna consurget a finibus terrae;
   23 arcum et acinacem arripiet, crudelis est et non miserebitur; vox eorum quasi mare sonabit, et super equos ascendent, praeparati quasi vir ad proelium adversum te, filia Sion".
   24 "Audivimus famam eius; dissolutae sunt manus nostrae, tribulatio apprehendit nos, dolores ut parturientem".
   25 Nolite exire ad agros et in via ne ambuletis, quoniam gladius inimici, pavor in circuitu.
   26 Filia populi mei, accingere cilicio et volutare in cinere, luctum unigeniti fac tibi, planctum amarum, quia repente veniet vastator super nos.
   27 Probatorem dedi te in populo meo; et scies et probabis viam eorum.
   28 Omnes isti principes rebelles, ambulantes fraudulenter. Aes et ferrum, omnia isti corrumpunt.
   29 Sufflavit sufflatorium in igne, consumptum est plumbum; frustra conflavit conflator, scoriae enim non sunt separatae.
   30 Argentum reprobum vocate eos, quia Dominus proiecit illos.

King James Version


   1 O ye children of Benjamin, gather yourselves to flee out of the midst of Jerusalem, and blow the trumpet in Tekoa, and set up a sign of fire in Beth-haccerem: for evil appeareth out of the north, and great destruction.
   2 I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman.
   3 The shepherds with their flocks shall come unto her; they shall pitch their tents against her round about; they shall feed every one in his place.
   4 Prepare ye war against her; arise, and let us go up at noon. Woe unto us! for the day goeth away, for the shadows of the evening are stretched out.
   5 Arise, and let us go by night, and let us destroy her palaces.
   6 ¶ For thus hath the LORD of hosts said, Hew ye down trees, and cast a mount against Jerusalem: this is the city to be visited; she is wholly oppression in the midst of her.
   7 As a fountain casteth out her waters, so she casteth out her wickedness: violence and spoil is heard in her; before me continually is grief and wounds.
   8 Be thou instructed, O Jerusalem, lest my soul depart from thee; lest I make thee desolate, a land not inhabited.
   9 ¶ Thus saith the LORD of hosts, They shall throughly glean the remnant of Israel as a vine: turn back thine hand as a grapegatherer into the baskets.
   10 To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear? behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot hearken: behold, the word of the LORD is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it.
   11 Therefore I am full of the fury of the LORD; I am weary with holding in: I will pour it out upon the children abroad, and upon the assembly of young men together: for even the husband with the wife shall be taken, the aged with him that is full of days.
   12 And their houses shall be turned unto others, with their fields and wives together: for I will stretch out my hand upon the inhabitants of the land, saith the LORD.
   13 For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.
   14 They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.
   15 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the LORD.
   16 Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.
   17 Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.
   18 ¶ Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them.
   19 Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.
   20 To what purpose cometh there to me incense from Sheba, and the sweet cane from a far country? your burnt offerings are not acceptable, nor your sacrifices sweet unto me.
   21 Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will lay stumblingblocks before this people, and the fathers and the sons together shall fall upon them; the neighbour and his friend shall perish.
   22 Thus saith the LORD, Behold, a people cometh from the north country, and a great nation shall be raised from the sides of the earth.
   23 They shall lay hold on bow and spear; they are cruel, and have no mercy; their voice roareth like the sea; and they ride upon horses, set in array as men for war against thee, O daughter of Zion.
   24 We have heard the fame thereof: our hands wax feeble: anguish hath taken hold of us, and pain, as of a woman in travail.
   25 Go not forth into the field, nor walk by the way; for the sword of the enemy and fear is on every side.
   26 ¶ O daughter of my people, gird thee with sackcloth, and wallow thyself in ashes: make thee mourning, as for an only son, most bitter lamentation: for the spoiler shall suddenly come upon us.
   27 I have set thee for a tower and a fortress among my people, that thou mayest know and try their way.
   28 They are all grievous revolters, walking with slanders: they are brass and iron; they are all corrupters.
   29 The bellows are burned, the lead is consumed of the fire; the founder melteth in vain: for the wicked are not plucked away.
   30 Reprobate silver shall men call them, because the LORD hath rejected them.
