The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Jeremiah, Chapter 24 (Latin)
1The LORD shewed me, and, behold, two baskets of figs were set before the temple of the LORD, after that Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon had carried away captive Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah, and the princes of Judah, with the carpenters and smiths, from Jerusalem, and had brought them to Babylon.
2One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are first ripe: and the other basket had very naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad.
3Then said the LORD unto me, What seest thou, Jeremiah? And I said, Figs; the good figs, very good; and the evil, very evil, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil.
4Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
5Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for their good.
6For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up.
7And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart.
8And as the evil figs, which cannot be eaten, they are so evil; surely thus saith the LORD, So will I give Zedekiah the king of Judah, and his princes, and the residue of Jerusalem, that remain in this land, and them that dwell in the land of Egypt:
9And I will deliver them to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth for their hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places whither I shall drive them.
10And I will send the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, among them, till they be consumed from off the land that I gave unto them and to their fathers.
1ostendit mihi Dominus et ecce duo calathi pleni ficis positi ante templum Domini postquam transtulit Nabuchodonosor rex Babylonis Iechoniam filium Ioachim regem Iuda et principes eius et fabrum et inclusorem de Hierusalem et adduxit eos in Babylonem
2calathus unus ficus bonas habebat nimis ut solent ficus esse primi temporis et calathus unus ficus habebat malas nimis quae comedi non poterant eo quod essent malae
3et dixit Dominus ad me quid tu vides Hieremia et dixi ficus ficus bonas bonas valde et malas malas valde quae comedi non possunt eo quod sint malae
4et factum est verbum Domini ad me dicens
5haec dicit Dominus Deus Israhel sicut ficus hae bonae sic cognoscam transmigrationem Iuda quam emisi de loco isto in terram Chaldeorum in bonum
6et ponam oculos meos super eos ad placandum et reducam eos in terram hanc et aedificabo eos et non destruam et plantabo eos et non evellam
7et dabo eis cor ut sciant me quia ego sum Dominus et erunt mihi in populum et ego ero eis in Deum quia revertentur ad me in toto corde suo
8et sicut ficus pessimae quae comedi non possunt eo quod sint malae haec dicit Dominus sic dabo Sedeciam regem Iuda et principes eius et reliquos de Hierusalem qui remanserunt in urbe hac et qui habitant in terra Aegypti
9et dabo eos in vexationem adflictionemque omnibus regnis terrae in obprobrium et in parabolam et in proverbium et in maledictionem in universis locis ad quos eieci eos
10et mittam in eis gladium et famem et pestem donec consumantur de terra quam dedi eis et patribus eorum
