The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Jeremiah, Chapter 32 (Latin)
1The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD in the tenth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, which was the eighteenth year of Nebuchadrezzar.
2For then the king of Babylon's army besieged Jerusalem: and Jeremiah the prophet was shut up in the court of the prison, which was in the king of Judah's house.
3For Zedekiah king of Judah had shut him up, saying, Wherefore dost thou prophesy, and say, Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will give this city into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall take it;
4And Zedekiah king of Judah shall not escape out of the hand of the Chaldeans, but shall surely be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon, and shall speak with him mouth to mouth, and his eyes shall behold his eyes;
5And he shall lead Zedekiah to Babylon, and there shall he be until I visit him, saith the LORD: though ye fight with the Chaldeans, ye shall not prosper.
6And Jeremiah said, The word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
7Behold, Hanameel the son of Shallum thine uncle shall come unto thee saying, Buy thee my field that is in Anathoth: for the right of redemption is thine to buy it.
8So Hanameel mine uncle's son came to me in the court of the prison according to the word of the LORD, and said unto me, Buy my field, I pray thee, that is in Anathoth, which is in the country of Benjamin: for the right of inheritance is thine, and the redemption is thine; buy it for thyself. Then I knew that this was the word of the LORD.
9And I bought the field of Hanameel my uncle's son, that was in Anathoth, and weighed him the money, even seventeen shekels of silver.
10And I subscribed the evidence, and sealed it, and took witnesses, and weighed him the money in the balances.
11So I took the evidence of the purchase, both that which was sealed according to the law and custom, and that which was open:
12And I gave the evidence of the purchase unto Baruch the son of Neriah, the son of Maaseiah, in the sight of Hanameel mine uncle's son, and in the presence of the witnesses that subscribed the book of the purchase, before all the Jews that sat in the court of the prison.
13And I charged Baruch before them, saying,
14Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Take these evidences, this evidence of the purchase, both which is sealed, and this evidence which is open; and put them in an earthen vessel, that they may continue many days.
15For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Houses and fields and vineyards shall be possessed again in this land.
16Now when I had delivered the evidence of the purchase unto Baruch the son of Neriah, I prayed unto the LORD, saying,
17Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:
18Thou shewest lovingkindness unto thousands, and recompensest the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them: the Great, the Mighty God, the LORD of hosts, is his name,
19Great in counsel, and mighty in work: for thine eyes are open upon all the ways of the sons of men: to give every one according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings:
20Which hast set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, even unto this day, and in Israel, and among other men; and hast made thee a name, as at this day;
21And hast brought forth thy people Israel out of the land of Egypt with signs, and with wonders, and with a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with great terror;
22And hast given them this land, which thou didst swear to their fathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey;
23And they came in, and possessed it; but they obeyed not thy voice, neither walked in thy law; they have done nothing of all that thou commandedst them to do: therefore thou hast caused all this evil to come upon them:
24Behold the mounts, they are come unto the city to take it; and the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans, that fight against it, because of the sword, and of the famine, and of the pestilence: and what thou hast spoken is come to pass; and, behold, thou seest it.
25And thou hast said unto me, O Lord GOD, Buy thee the field for money, and take witnesses; for the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans.
26Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah, saying,
27Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?
28Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will give this city into the hand of the Chaldeans, and into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, and he shall take it:
29And the Chaldeans, that fight against this city, shall come and set fire on this city, and burn it with the houses, upon whose roofs they have offered incense unto Baal, and poured out drink offerings unto other gods, to provoke me to anger.
30For the children of Israel and the children of Judah have only done evil before me from their youth: for the children of Israel have only provoked me to anger with the work of their hands, saith the LORD.
31For this city hath been to me as a provocation of mine anger and of my fury from the day that they built it even unto this day; that I should remove it from before my face,
32Because of all the evil of the children of Israel and of the children of Judah, which they have done to provoke me to anger, they, their kings, their princes, their priests, and their prophets, and the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
33And they have turned unto me the back, and not the face: though I taught them, rising up early and teaching them, yet they have not hearkened to receive instruction.
34But they set their abominations in the house, which is called by my name, to defile it.
35And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.
36And now therefore thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning this city, whereof ye say, It shall be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence;
37Behold, I will gather them out of all countries, whither I have driven them in mine anger, and in my fury, and in great wrath; and I will bring them again unto this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely:
38And they shall be my people, and I will be their God:
39And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me for ever, for the good of them, and of their children after them:
40And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me.
41Yea, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will plant them in this land assuredly with my whole heart and with my whole soul.
42For thus saith the LORD; Like as I have brought all this great evil upon this people, so will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised them.
43And fields shall be bought in this land, whereof ye say, It is desolate without man or beast; it is given into the hand of the Chaldeans.
44Men shall buy fields for money, and subscribe evidences, and seal them, and take witnesses in the land of Benjamin, and in the places about Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah, and in the cities of the mountains, and in the cities of the valley, and in the cities of the south: for I will cause their captivity to return, saith the LORD.
1verbum quod factum est ad Hieremiam a Domino in anno decimo Sedeciae regis Iuda ipse est annus octavusdecimus Nabuchodonosor
2tunc exercitus regis Babylonis obsidebat Hierusalem et Hieremias propheta erat clausus in atrio carceris qui erat in domo regis Iuda
3clauserat enim eum Sedecias rex Iuda dicens quare vaticinaris dicens haec dicit Dominus ecce ego dabo civitatem istam in manu regis Babylonis et capiet eam
4et Sedecias rex Iuda non effugiet de manu Chaldeorum sed tradetur in manu regis Babylonis et loquetur os eius cum ore illius et oculi eius oculos illius videbunt
5et in Babylonem ducet Sedeciam et ibi erit donec visitem eum ait Dominus si autem dimicaveritis adversum Chaldeos nihil prosperum habebitis
6et dixit Hieremias factum est verbum Domini ad me dicens
7ecce Anamehel filius Sellum patruelis tuus veniet ad te dicens eme tibi agrum meum qui est in Anathoth tibi enim conpetit ex propinquitate ut emas
8et venit ad me Anamehel filius patrui mei secundum verbum Domini ad vestibulum carceris et ait ad me posside agrum meum qui est in Anathoth in terra Beniamin quia tibi conpetit hereditas et tu propinquus ut possideas intellexi autem quod verbum Domini esset
9et emi agrum ab Anamehel filio patrui mei qui est in Anathoth et adpendi ei argentum septem stateres et decem argenteos
10et scripsi in libro et signavi et adhibui testes et adpendi argentum in statera
11et accepi librum possessionis signatum stipulationes et rata et signa forinsecus
12et dedi librum possessionis Baruch filio Neri filii Maasiae in oculis Anamehel patruelis mei et in oculis testium qui scripti erant in libro emptionis in oculis omnium Iudaeorum qui sedebant in atrio carceris
13et praecepi Baruch coram eis dicens
14haec dicit Dominus exercituum Deus Israhel sume libros istos librum emptionis hunc signatum et librum hunc qui apertus est et pones illos in vase fictili ut permanere possint diebus multis
15haec enim dicit Dominus exercituum Deus Israhel adhuc possidebuntur domus et agri et vineae in terra ista
16et oravi ad Dominum postquam tradidi librum possessionis Baruch filio Neri dicens
17heu heu heu Domine Deus ecce tu fecisti caelum et terram in fortitudine tua magna et in brachio tuo extento non erit tibi difficile omne verbum
18qui facis misericordiam in milibus et reddes iniquitatem patrum in sinu filiorum eorum post eos fortissime magne potens Dominus exercituum nomen tibi
19magnus consilio et inconprehensibilis cogitatu cuius oculi aperti sunt super omnes vias filiorum Adam ut reddas unicuique secundum vias suas et secundum fructum adinventionum eius
20qui posuisti signa et portenta in terra Aegypti usque ad diem hanc et in Israhel et in hominibus et fecisti tibi nomen sicut est dies haec
21et eduxisti populum tuum Israhel de terra Aegypti in signis et in portentis et in manu robusta et in brachio extento et in terrore magno
22et dedisti eis terram hanc quam iurasti patribus eorum ut dares eis terram fluentem lacte et melle
23et ingressi sunt et possederunt eam et non oboedierunt voci tuae et in lege tua non ambulaverunt omnia quae mandasti eis ut facerent non fecerunt et evenerunt eis omnia mala haec
24ecce munitiones extructae sunt adversum civitatem ut capiatur et urbs data est in manu Chaldeorum qui proeliantur adversum eam a facie gladii et famis et pestilentiae et quaecumque locutus es acciderunt ut ipse tu cernis
25et tu dicis mihi Domine Deus eme agrum argento et adhibe testes cum urbs data sit in manu Chaldeorum
26et factum est verbum Domini ad Hieremiam dicens
27ecce ego Dominus Deus universae carnis numquid mihi difficile erit omne verbum
28propterea haec dicit Dominus ecce ego tradam civitatem istam in manu Chaldeorum et in manu regis Babylonis et capiet eam
29et venient Chaldei proeliantes adversum urbem hanc et succendent eam igni et conburent eam et domos in quarum domatibus sacrificabant Baal et libabant diis alienis libamina ad inritandum me
30erant enim filii Israhel et filii Iuda iugiter facientes malum in oculis meis ab adulescentia sua filii Israhel qui usque nunc exacerbant me in opere manuum suarum dicit Dominus
31quia in furore et in indignatione mea facta est mihi civitas haec a die qua aedificaverunt eam usque ad diem istam qua aufertur de conspectu meo
32propter malitiam filiorum Israhel et filiorum Iuda quam fecerunt ad iracundiam me provocantes ipsi et reges eorum principes eorum et sacerdotes et prophetae eorum vir Iuda et habitatores Hierusalem
33et verterunt ad me terga et non facies cum docerem eos diluculo et erudirem et nollent audire ut acciperent disciplinam
34et posuerunt idola sua in domo in qua invocatum est nomen meum ut polluerent eam
35et aedificaverunt excelsa Baal quae sunt in valle filii Ennom ut initiarent filios suos et filias suas Moloch quod non mandavi eis nec ascendit in cor meum ut facerent abominationem hanc et in peccatum deducerent Iudam
36et nunc propter ista haec dicit Dominus Deus Israhel ad civitatem hanc de qua vos dicitis quod tradatur in manu regis Babylonis in gladio et in fame et in peste
37ecce ego congregabo eos de universis terris ad quas eieci eos in furore meo et in ira mea et in indignatione grandi et reducam eos ad locum istum et habitare eos faciam confidenter
38et erunt mihi in populum et ego ero eis in Deum
39et dabo eis cor unum et viam unam ut timeant me universis diebus et bene sit eis et filiis eorum post eos
40et feriam eis pactum sempiternum et non desinam eis benefacere et timorem meum dabo in corde eorum ut non recedant a me
41et laetabor super eis cum bene eis fecero et plantabo eos in terra ista in veritate in toto corde meo et in tota anima mea
42quia haec dicit Dominus sicut adduxi super populum istum omne malum hoc grande sic adducam super eos omne bonum quod ego loquor ad eos
43et possidebuntur agri in terra ista de qua vos dicitis quod deserta sit eo quod non remanserit homo et iumentum et data sit in manu Chaldeorum
44agri pecunia ementur et scribentur in libro et inprimetur signum et testis adhibebitur in terra Beniamin et in circuitu Hierusalem in civitatibus Iuda et in civitatibus montanis et in civitatibus campestribus et in civitatibus quae ad austrum sunt quia convertam captivitatem eorum ait Dominus
