The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Jeremiah, Chapter 31 (Latin)
1At the same time, saith the LORD, will I be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my people.
2Thus saith the LORD, The people which were left of the sword found grace in the wilderness; even Israel, when I went to cause him to rest.
3The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.
4Again I will build thee, and thou shalt be built, O virgin of Israel: thou shalt again be adorned with thy tabrets, and shalt go forth in the dances of them that make merry.
5Thou shalt yet plant vines upon the mountains of Samaria: the planters shall plant, and shall eat them as common things.
6For there shall be a day, that the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the LORD our God.
7For thus saith the LORD; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: publish ye, praise ye, and say, O LORD, save thy people, the remnant of Israel.
8Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company shall return thither.
9They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.
10Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock.
11For the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he.
12Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, and shall flow together to the goodness of the LORD, for wheat, and for wine, and for oil, and for the young of the flock and of the herd: and their soul shall be as a watered garden; and they shall not sorrow any more at all.
13Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, both young men and old together: for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow.
14And I will satiate the soul of the priests with fatness, and my people shall be satisfied with my goodness, saith the LORD.
15Thus saith the LORD; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not.
16Thus saith the LORD; Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears: for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the LORD; and they shall come again from the land of the enemy.
17And there is hope in thine end, saith the LORD, that thy children shall come again to their own border.
18I have surely heard Ephraim bemoaning himself thus; Thou hast chastised me, and I was chastised, as a bullock unaccustomed to the yoke: turn thou me, and I shall be turned; for thou art the LORD my God.
19Surely after that I was turned, I repented; and after that I was instructed, I smote upon my thigh: I was ashamed, yea, even confounded, because I did bear the reproach of my youth.
20Is Ephraim my dear son? is he a pleasant child? for since I spake against him, I do earnestly remember him still: therefore my bowels are troubled for him; I will surely have mercy upon him, saith the LORD.
21Set thee up waymarks, make thee high heaps: set thine heart toward the highway, even the way which thou wentest: turn again, O virgin of Israel, turn again to these thy cities.
22How long wilt thou go about, O thou backsliding daughter? for the LORD hath created a new thing in the earth, A woman shall compass a man.
23Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; As yet they shall use this speech in the land of Judah and in the cities thereof, when I shall bring again their captivity; The LORD bless thee, O habitation of justice, and mountain of holiness.
24And there shall dwell in Judah itself, and in all the cities thereof together, husbandmen, and they that go forth with flocks.
25For I have satiated the weary soul, and I have replenished every sorrowful soul.
26Upon this I awaked, and beheld; and my sleep was sweet unto me.
27Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man, and with the seed of beast.
28And it shall come to pass, that like as I have watched over them, to pluck up, and to break down, and to throw down, and to destroy, and to afflict; so will I watch over them, to build, and to plant, saith the LORD.
29In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on edge.
30But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge.
31Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
32Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:
33But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
34And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
35Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name:
36If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever.
37Thus saith the LORD; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the LORD.
38Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the city shall be built to the LORD from the tower of Hananeel unto the gate of the corner.
39And the measuring line shall yet go forth over against it upon the hill Gareb, and shall compass about to Goath.
40And the whole valley of the dead bodies, and of the ashes, and all the fields unto the brook of Kidron, unto the corner of the horse gate toward the east, shall be holy unto the LORD; it shall not be plucked up, nor thrown down any more for ever.
1in tempore illo dicit Dominus ero Deus universis cognationibus Israhel et ipsi erunt mihi in populum
2haec dicit Dominus invenit gratiam in deserto populus qui remanserat gladio vadet ad requiem suam Israhel
3longe Dominus apparuit mihi et in caritate perpetua dilexi te ideo adtraxi te miserans
4rursumque aedificabo te et aedificaberis virgo Israhel adhuc ornaberis tympanis tuis et egredieris in choro ludentium
5adhuc plantabis vineas in montibus Samariae plantabunt plantantes et donec tempus veniat non vindemiabunt
6quia erit dies in qua clamabunt custodes in monte Ephraim surgite et ascendamus in Sion ad Dominum Deum nostrum
7quia haec dicit Dominus exultate in laetitia Iacob et hinnite contra caput gentium personate canite et dicite salva Domine populum tuum reliquias Israhel
8ecce ego adducam eos de terra aquilonis et congregabo eos ab extremis terrae inter quos erunt caecus et claudus et praegnans et pariens simul coetus magnus revertentium huc
9in fletu venient et in precibus deducam eos et adducam eos per torrentes aquarum in via recta et non inpingent in ea quia factus sum Israheli pater et Ephraim primogenitus meus est
10audite verbum Domini gentes et adnuntiate insulis quae procul sunt et dicite qui dispersit Israhel congregabit eum et custodiet eum sicut pastor gregem suum
11redemit enim Dominus Iacob et liberavit eum de manu potentioris
12et venient et laudabunt in monte Sion et confluent ad bona Domini super frumento et vino et oleo et fetu pecorum et armentorum eritque anima eorum quasi hortus inriguus et ultra non esurient
13tunc laetabitur virgo in choro iuvenes et senes simul et convertam luctum eorum in gaudium et consolabor eos et laetificabo a dolore suo
14et inebriabo animam sacerdotum pinguedine et populus meus bonis meis adimplebitur ait Dominus
15haec dicit Dominus vox in excelso audita est lamentationis fletus et luctus Rachel plorantis filios suos et nolentis consolari super eis quia non sunt
16haec dicit Dominus quiescat vox tua a ploratu et oculi tui a lacrimis quia est merces operi tuo ait Dominus et revertentur de terra inimici
17et est spes novissimis tuis ait Dominus et revertentur filii ad terminos suos
18audiens audivi Ephraim transmigrantem castigasti me et eruditus sum quasi iuvenculus indomitus converte me et revertar quia tu Dominus Deus meus
19postquam enim convertisti me egi paenitentiam et postquam ostendisti mihi percussi femur meum confusus sum et erubui quoniam sustinui obprobrium adulescentiae meae
20si filius honorabilis mihi Ephraim si puer delicatus quia ex quo locutus sum de eo adhuc recordabor eius idcirco conturbata sunt viscera mea super eum miserans miserebor eius ait Dominus
21statue tibi speculam pone tibi amaritudines dirige cor tuum in viam directam in qua ambulasti revertere virgo Israhel revertere ad civitates tuas istas
22usquequo deliciis dissolveris filia vaga quia creavit Dominus novum super terram femina circumdabit virum
23haec dicit Dominus exercituum Deus Israhel adhuc dicent verbum istud in terra Iuda et in urbibus eius cum convertero captivitatem eorum benedicat tibi Dominus pulchritudo iustitiae mons sanctus
24et habitabunt in eo Iudas et omnes civitates eius simul agricolae et minantes greges
25quia inebriavi animam lassam et omnem animam esurientem saturavi
26ideo quasi de somno suscitatus sum et vidi et somnus meus dulcis mihi
27ecce dies veniunt dicit Dominus et seminabo domum Israhel et domum Iuda semine hominis et semine iumentorum
28et sicut vigilavi super eos ut evellerem et demolirer et dissiparem et disperderem et adfligerem sic vigilabo super eos ut aedificem et plantem ait Dominus
29in diebus illis non dicent ultra patres comederunt uvam acerbam et dentes filiorum obstipuerunt
30sed unusquisque in iniquitate sua morietur omnis homo qui comederit uvam acerbam obstupescent dentes eius
31ecce dies veniunt dicit Dominus et feriam domui Israhel et domui Iuda foedus novum
32non secundum pactum quod pepigi cum patribus vestris in die qua adprehendi manum eorum ut educerem eos de terra Aegypti pactum quod irritum fecerunt et ego dominatus sum eorum dicit Dominus
33sed hoc erit pactum quod feriam cum domo Israhel post dies illos dicit Dominus dabo legem meam in visceribus eorum et in corde eorum scribam eam et ero eis in Deum et ipsi erunt mihi in populum
34et non docebunt ultra vir proximum suum et vir fratrem suum dicens cognoscite Dominum omnes enim cognoscent me a minimo eorum usque ad maximum ait Dominus quia propitiabor iniquitati eorum et peccati eorum non ero memor amplius
35haec dicit Dominus qui dat solem in lumine diei ordinem lunae et stellarum in lumine noctis qui turbat mare et sonant fluctus eius Dominus exercituum nomen illi
36si defecerint leges istae coram me dicit Dominus tunc et semen Israhel deficiet ut non sit gens coram me cunctis diebus
37haec dicit Dominus si mensurari potuerint caeli sursum et investigari fundamenta terrae deorsum et ego abiciam universum semen Israhel propter omnia quae fecerunt dicit Dominus
38ecce dies veniunt dicit Dominus et aedificabitur civitas Domino a turre Ananehel usque ad portam Anguli
39et exibit ultra norma mensurae in conspectu eius super collem Gareb et circuibit Goatha
40et omnem vallem cadaverum et cineris et universam regionem mortis usque ad torrentem Cedron et usque ad angulum portae Equorum orientalis sanctum Domini non evelletur et non destruetur ultra in perpetuum
