The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Jeremiah, Chapter 20 (Latin)
1Now Pashur the son of Immer the priest, who was also chief governor in the house of the LORD, heard that Jeremiah prophesied these things.
2Then Pashur smote Jeremiah the prophet, and put him in the stocks that were in the high gate of Benjamin, which was by the house of the LORD.
3And it came to pass on the morrow, that Pashur brought forth Jeremiah out of the stocks. Then said Jeremiah unto him, The LORD hath not called thy name Pashur, but Magormissabib.
4For thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will make thee a terror to thyself, and to all thy friends: and they shall fall by the sword of their enemies, and thine eyes shall behold it: and I will give all Judah into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall carry them captive into Babylon, and shall slay them with the sword.
5Moreover I will deliver all the strength of this city, and all the labours thereof, and all the precious things thereof, and all the treasures of the kings of Judah will I give into the hand of their enemies, which shall spoil them, and take them, and carry them to Babylon.
6And thou, Pashur, and all that dwell in thine house shall go into captivity: and thou shalt come to Babylon, and there thou shalt die, and shalt be buried there, thou, and all thy friends, to whom thou hast prophesied lies.
7O LORD, thou hast deceived me, and I was deceived; thou art stronger than I, and hast prevailed: I am in derision daily, every one mocketh me.
8For since I spake, I cried out, I cried violence and spoil; because the word of the LORD was made a reproach unto me, and a derision, daily.
9Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.
10For I heard the defaming of many, fear on every side. Report, say they, and we will report it. All my familiars watched for my halting, saying, Peradventure he will be enticed, and we shall prevail against him, and we shall take our revenge on him.
11But the LORD is with me as a mighty terrible one: therefore my persecutors shall stumble, and they shall not prevail: they shall be greatly ashamed; for they shall not prosper: their everlasting confusion shall never be forgotten.
12But, O LORD of hosts, that triest the righteous, and seest the reins and the heart, let me see thy vengeance on them: for unto thee have I opened my cause.
13Sing unto the LORD, praise ye the LORD: for he hath delivered the soul of the poor from the hand of evildoers.
14Cursed be the day wherein I was born: let not the day wherein my mother bare me be blessed.
15Cursed be the man who brought tidings to my father, saying, A man child is born unto thee; making him very glad.
16And let that man be as the cities which the LORD overthrew, and repented not: and let him hear the cry in the morning, and the shouting at noontide;
17Because he slew me not from the womb; or that my mother might have been my grave, and her womb to be always great with me.
18Wherefore came I forth out of the womb to see labour and sorrow, that my days should be consumed with shame?
1et audivit Phassur filius Emmer sacerdos qui constitutus erat princeps in domo Domini Hieremiam prophetantem sermones istos
2et percussit Phassur Hieremiam prophetam et misit eum in nervum quod erat in porta Beniamin superiori in domo Domini
3cumque inluxisset in crastinum eduxit Phassur Hieremiam de nervo et dixit ad eum Hieremias non Phassur vocavit Dominus nomen tuum sed Pavorem undique
4quia haec dicit Dominus ecce ego dabo te in pavorem te et omnes amicos tuos et corruent gladio inimicorum suorum et oculi tui videbunt et omnem Iudam dabo in manu regis Babylonis et traducet eos in Babylonem et percutiet eos gladio
5et dabo universam substantiam civitatis huius et omnem laborem eius omneque pretium et cunctos thesauros regum Iuda dabo in manu inimicorum eorum et diripient eos et tollent et ducent in Babylonem
6tu autem Phassur et omnes habitatores domus tuae ibitis in captivitatem et in Babylonem venies et ibi morieris ibique sepelieris tu et omnes amici tui quibus prophetasti mendacium
7seduxisti me Domine et seductus sum fortior me fuisti et invaluisti factus sum in derisum tota die omnes subsannant me
8quia iam olim loquor vociferans iniquitatem et vastitatem clamito et factus est mihi sermo Domini in obprobrium et in derisum tota die
9et dixi non recordabor eius neque loquar ultra in nomine illius et factus est in corde meo quasi ignis exaestuans claususque in ossibus meis et defeci ferre non sustinens
10audivi enim contumelias multorum et terrorem in circuitu persequimini et persequamur eum ab omnibus viris qui erant pacifici mei et custodientes latus meum si quo modo decipiatur et praevaleamus adversus eum et consequamur ultionem ex eo
11Dominus autem mecum est quasi bellator fortis idcirco qui persequuntur me cadent et infirmi erunt confundentur vehementer quia non intellexerunt obprobrium sempiternum quod numquam delebitur
12et tu Domine exercituum probator iusti qui vides renes et cor videam quaeso ultionem tuam ex eis tibi enim revelavi causam meam
13cantate Domino laudate Dominum quia liberavit animam pauperis de manu malorum
14maledicta dies in qua natus sum dies in qua peperit me mater mea non sit benedicta
15maledictus vir qui adnuntiavit patri meo dicens natus est tibi puer masculus et quasi gaudio laetificavit eum
16sit homo ille ut sunt civitates quas subvertit Dominus et non paenituit eum audiat clamorem mane et ululatum in tempore meridiano
17qui non me interfecit a vulva ut fieret mihi mater mea sepulchrum et vulva eius conceptus aeternus
18quare de vulva egressus sum ut viderem laborem et dolorem et consumerentur in confusione dies mei
