The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Jeremiah, Chapter 19 (Latin)
1Thus saith the LORD, Go and get a potter's earthen bottle, and take of the ancients of the people, and of the ancients of the priests;
2And go forth unto the valley of the son of Hinnom, which is by the entry of the east gate, and proclaim there the words that I shall tell thee,
3And say, Hear ye the word of the LORD, O kings of Judah, and inhabitants of Jerusalem; Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, the which whosoever heareth, his ears shall tingle.
4Because they have forsaken me, and have estranged this place, and have burned incense in it unto other gods, whom neither they nor their fathers have known, nor the kings of Judah, and have filled this place with the blood of innocents;
5They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into my mind:
6Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that this place shall no more be called Tophet, nor The valley of the son of Hinnom, but The valley of slaughter.
7And I will make void the counsel of Judah and Jerusalem in this place; and I will cause them to fall by the sword before their enemies, and by the hands of them that seek their lives: and their carcases will I give to be meat for the fowls of the heaven, and for the beasts of the earth.
8And I will make this city desolate, and an hissing; every one that passeth thereby shall be astonished and hiss because of all the plagues thereof.
9And I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend in the siege and straitness, wherewith their enemies, and they that seek their lives, shall straiten them.
10Then shalt thou break the bottle in the sight of the men that go with thee,
11And shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Even so will I break this people and this city, as one breaketh a potter's vessel, that cannot be made whole again: and they shall bury them in Tophet, till there be no place to bury.
12Thus will I do unto this place, saith the LORD, and to the inhabitants thereof, and even make this city as Tophet:
13And the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses of the kings of Judah, shall be defiled as the place of Tophet, because of all the houses upon whose roofs they have burned incense unto all the host of heaven, and have poured out drink offerings unto other gods.
14Then came Jeremiah from Tophet, whither the LORD had sent him to prophesy; and he stood in the court of the LORD's house; and said to all the people,
15Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring upon this city and upon all her towns all the evil that I have pronounced against it, because they have hardened their necks, that they might not hear my words.
1haec dicit Dominus vade et accipe lagunculam figuli testeam a senioribus populi et a senioribus sacerdotum
2et egredere ad vallem filii Ennom quae est iuxta introitum portae Fictilis et praedicabis ibi verba quae ego loquar ad te
3et dices audite verbum Domini reges Iuda et habitatores Hierusalem haec dicit Dominus exercituum Deus Israhel ecce ego inducam adflictionem super locum istum ita ut omnis qui audierit illam tinniant aures eius
4eo quod dereliquerint me et alienum fecerint locum istum et libaverint in eo diis alienis quos nescierunt ipsi et patres eorum et reges Iuda et repleverunt locum istum sanguine innocentium
5et aedificaverunt excelsa Baali ad conburendos filios suos igni in holocaustum Baali quae non praecepi nec locutus sum nec ascenderunt in cor meum
6propterea ecce dies veniunt dicit Dominus et non vocabitur locus iste amplius Thofeth et vallis filii Ennom sed vallis Occisionis
7et dissipabo consilium Iudae et Hierusalem in loco isto et subvertam eos gladio in conspectu inimicorum suorum et in manu quaerentium animas eorum et dabo cadavera eorum escam volatilibus caeli et bestiis terrae
8et ponam civitatem hanc in stuporem et in sibilum omnis qui praeterierit per eam obstupescet et sibilabit super universa plaga eius
9et cibabo eos carnibus filiorum suorum et carnibus filiarum suarum et unusquisque carnes amici sui comedet in obsidione et in angustia in qua concludent eos inimici eorum et qui quaerunt animas eorum
10et conteres lagunculam in oculis virorum qui ibunt tecum
11et dices ad eos haec dicit Dominus exercituum sic conteram populum istum et civitatem istam sicut conteritur vas figuli quod non potest ultra instaurari et in Thofeth sepelientur eo quod non sit alius locus ad sepeliendum
12sic faciam loco huic ait Dominus et habitatoribus eius ut ponam civitatem istam sicut Thofeth
13et erunt domus Hierusalem et domus regum Iuda sicut locus Thofeth inmundae omnes domus in quarum domatibus sacrificaverunt omni militiae caeli et libaverunt libamina diis alienis
14venit autem Hieremias de Thofeth quo miserat eum Dominus ad prophetandum et stetit in atrio domus Domini et dixit ad omnem populum
15haec dicit Dominus exercituum Deus Israhel ecce ego inducam super civitatem hanc et super omnes urbes eius universa mala quae locutus sum adversum eam quoniam induraverunt cervicem suam ut non audirent sermones meos
