The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Jeremiah, Chapter 27 (Latin)
1In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah came this word unto Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,
2Thus saith the LORD to me; Make thee bonds and yokes, and put them upon thy neck,
3And send them to the king of Edom, and to the king of Moab, and to the king of the Ammonites, and to the king of Tyrus, and to the king of Zidon, by the hand of the messengers which come to Jerusalem unto Zedekiah king of Judah;
4And command them to say unto their masters, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Thus shall ye say unto your masters;
5I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are upon the ground, by my great power and by my outstretched arm, and have given it unto whom it seemed meet unto me.
6And now have I given all these lands into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, my servant; and the beasts of the field have I given him also to serve him.
7And all nations shall serve him, and his son, and his son's son, until the very time of his land come: and then many nations and great kings shall serve themselves of him.
8And it shall come to pass, that the nation and kingdom which will not serve the same Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, and that will not put their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, that nation will I punish, saith the LORD, with the sword, and with the famine, and with the pestilence, until I have consumed them by his hand.
9Therefore hearken not ye to your prophets, nor to your diviners, nor to your dreamers, nor to your enchanters, nor to your sorcerers, which speak unto you, saying, Ye shall not serve the king of Babylon:
10For they prophesy a lie unto you, to remove you far from your land; and that I should drive you out, and ye should perish.
11But the nations that bring their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, and serve him, those will I let remain still in their own land, saith the LORD; and they shall till it, and dwell therein.
12I spake also to Zedekiah king of Judah according to all these words, saying, Bring your necks under the yoke of the king of Babylon, and serve him and his people, and live.
13Why will ye die, thou and thy people, by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence, as the LORD hath spoken against the nation that will not serve the king of Babylon?
14Therefore hearken not unto the words of the prophets that speak unto you, saying, Ye shall not serve the king of Babylon: for they prophesy a lie unto you.
15For I have not sent them, saith the LORD, yet they prophesy a lie in my name; that I might drive you out, and that ye might perish, ye, and the prophets that prophesy unto you.
16Also I spake to the priests and to all this people, saying, Thus saith the LORD; Hearken not to the words of your prophets that prophesy unto you, saying, Behold, the vessels of the LORD's house shall now shortly be brought again from Babylon: for they prophesy a lie unto you.
17Hearken not unto them; serve the king of Babylon, and live: wherefore should this city be laid waste?
18But if they be prophets, and if the word of the LORD be with them, let them now make intercession to the LORD of hosts, that the vessels which are left in the house of the LORD, and in the house of the king of Judah, and at Jerusalem, go not to Babylon.
19For thus saith the LORD of hosts concerning the pillars, and concerning the sea, and concerning the bases, and concerning the residue of the vessels that remain in this city.
20Which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon took not, when he carried away captive Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah from Jerusalem to Babylon, and all the nobles of Judah and Jerusalem;
21Yea, thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, concerning the vessels that remain in the house of the LORD, and in the house of the king of Judah and of Jerusalem;
22They shall be carried to Babylon, and there shall they be until the day that I visit them, saith the LORD; then will I bring them up, and restore them to this place.
1in principio regni Ioachim filii Iosiae regis Iuda factum est verbum istud ad Hieremiam a Domino dicens
2haec dicit Dominus ad me fac tibi vincula et catenas et pones eas in collo tuo
3et mittes eas ad regem Edom et ad regem Moab et ad regem filiorum Ammon et ad regem Tyri et ad regem Sidonis in manu nuntiorum qui venerunt Hierusalem ad Sedeciam regem Iuda
4et praecipies eis ut ad dominos suos loquantur haec dicit Dominus exercituum Deus Israhel haec dicetis ad dominos vestros
5ego feci terram et hominem et iumenta quae sunt super faciem terrae in fortitudine mea magna et in brachio meo extento et dedi eam ei qui placuit in oculis meis
6et nunc itaque ego dedi omnes terras istas in manu Nabuchodonosor regis Babylonis servi mei insuper et bestias agri dedi ei ut serviant illi
7et servient ei omnes gentes et filio eius et filio filii eius donec veniat tempus terrae eius et ipsius et servient ei gentes multae et reges magni
8gens autem et regnum quod non servierit Nabuchodonosor regi Babylonis et quicumque non curvaverit collum suum sub iugo regis Babylonis in gladio et in fame et in peste visitabo super gentem illam ait Dominus donec consumam eos in manu eius
9vos ergo nolite audire prophetas vestros et divinos et somniatores et augures et maleficos qui dicunt vobis non servietis regi Babylonis
10quia mendacium prophetant vobis ut longe faciant vos de terra vestra et eiciant vos et pereatis
11porro gens quae subiecerit cervicem suam sub iugo regis Babylonis et servierit ei dimittam eam in terra sua dicit Dominus et colet eam et habitabit in ea
12et ad Sedeciam regem Iuda locutus sum secundum omnia verba haec dicens subicite colla vestra sub iugo regis Babylonis et servite ei et populo eius et vivetis
13quare moriemini tu et populus tuus gladio fame et peste sicut locutus est Dominus ad gentem quae servire noluerit regi Babylonis
14nolite audire verba prophetarum dicentium vobis non servietis regi Babylonis quia mendacium ipsi loquuntur vobis
15quia non misi eos ait Dominus et ipsi prophetant in nomine meo mendaciter ut eiciant vos et pereatis tam vos quam prophetae qui vaticinantur vobis
16et ad sacerdotes et ad populum istum locutus sum dicens haec dicit Dominus nolite audire verba prophetarum vestrorum qui prophetant vobis dicentes ecce vasa Domini revertentur de Babylone nunc cito mendacium enim prophetant vobis
17nolite ergo audire eos sed servite regi Babylonis ut vivatis quare datur haec civitas in solitudinem
18et si prophetae sunt et est verbum Domini in eis occurrant Domino exercituum ut non veniant vasa quae derelicta fuerant in domum Domini et in domum regis Iuda et in Hierusalem in Babylonem
19quia haec dicit Dominus exercituum ad columnas et ad mare et ad bases et ad reliqua vasorum quae remanserunt in civitate hac
20quae non tulit Nabuchodonosor rex Babylonis cum transferret Iechoniam filium Ioachim regem Iuda de Hierusalem in Babylonem et omnes optimates Iuda et Hierusalem
21quia haec dicit Dominus exercituum Deus Israhel ad vasa quae derelicta sunt in domum Domini et in domum regis Iuda et Hierusalem
22in Babylonem transferentur et ibi erunt usque ad diem visitationis suae dicit Dominus et adferri faciam ea et restitui in loco isto
