The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Jeremiah, Chapter 36 (Latin)
1And it came to pass in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, that this word came unto Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,
2Take thee a roll of a book, and write therein all the words that I have spoken unto thee against Israel, and against Judah, and against all the nations, from the day I spake unto thee, from the days of Josiah, even unto this day.
3It may be that the house of Judah will hear all the evil which I purpose to do unto them; that they may return every man from his evil way; that I may forgive their iniquity and their sin.
4Then Jeremiah called Baruch the son of Neriah: and Baruch wrote from the mouth of Jeremiah all the words of the LORD, which he had spoken unto him, upon a roll of a book.
5And Jeremiah commanded Baruch, saying, I am shut up; I cannot go into the house of the LORD:
6Therefore go thou, and read in the roll, which thou hast written from my mouth, the words of the LORD in the ears of the people in the LORD's house upon the fasting day: and also thou shalt read them in the ears of all Judah that come out of their cities.
7It may be they will present their supplication before the LORD, and will return every one from his evil way: for great is the anger and the fury that the LORD hath pronounced against this people.
8And Baruch the son of Neriah did according to all that Jeremiah the prophet commanded him, reading in the book the words of the LORD in the LORD's house.
9And it came to pass in the fifth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, in the ninth month, that they proclaimed a fast before the LORD to all the people in Jerusalem, and to all the people that came from the cities of Judah unto Jerusalem.
10Then read Baruch in the book the words of Jeremiah in the house of the LORD, in the chamber of Gemariah the son of Shaphan the scribe, in the higher court, at the entry of the new gate of the LORD's house, in the ears of all the people.
11When Michaiah the son of Gemariah, the son of Shaphan, had heard out of the book all the words of the LORD,
12Then he went down into the king's house, into the scribe's chamber: and, lo, all the princes sat there, even Elishama the scribe, and Delaiah the son of Shemaiah, and Elnathan the son of Achbor, and Gemariah the son of Shaphan, and Zedekiah the son of Hananiah, and all the princes.
13Then Michaiah declared unto them all the words that he had heard, when Baruch read the book in the ears of the people.
14Therefore all the princes sent Jehudi the son of Nethaniah, the son of Shelemiah, the son of Cushi, unto Baruch, saying, Take in thine hand the roll wherein thou hast read in the ears of the people, and come. So Baruch the son of Neriah took the roll in his hand, and came unto them.
15And they said unto him, Sit down now, and read it in our ears. So Baruch read it in their ears.
16Now it came to pass, when they had heard all the words, they were afraid both one and other, and said unto Baruch, We will surely tell the king of all these words.
17And they asked Baruch, saying, Tell us now, How didst thou write all these words at his mouth?
18Then Baruch answered them, He pronounced all these words unto me with his mouth, and I wrote them with ink in the book.
19Then said the princes unto Baruch, Go, hide thee, thou and Jeremiah; and let no man know where ye be.
20And they went in to the king into the court, but they laid up the roll in the chamber of Elishama the scribe, and told all the words in the ears of the king.
21So the king sent Jehudi to fetch the roll: and he took it out of Elishama the scribe's chamber. And Jehudi read it in the ears of the king, and in the ears of all the princes which stood beside the king.
22Now the king sat in the winterhouse in the ninth month: and there was a fire on the hearth burning before him.
23And it came to pass, that when Jehudi had read three or four leaves, he cut it with the penknife, and cast it into the fire that was on the hearth, until all the roll was consumed in the fire that was on the hearth.
24Yet they were not afraid, nor rent their garments, neither the king, nor any of his servants that heard all these words.
25Nevertheless Elnathan and Delaiah and Gemariah had made intercession to the king that he would not burn the roll: but he would not hear them.
26But the king commanded Jerahmeel the son of Hammelech, and Seraiah the son of Azriel, and Shelemiah the son of Abdeel, to take Baruch the scribe and Jeremiah the prophet: but the LORD hid them.
27Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, after that the king had burned the roll, and the words which Baruch wrote at the mouth of Jeremiah, saying,
28Take thee again another roll, and write in it all the former words that were in the first roll, which Jehoiakim the king of Judah hath burned.
29And thou shalt say to Jehoiakim king of Judah, Thus saith the LORD; Thou hast burned this roll, saying, Why hast thou written therein, saying, The king of Babylon shall certainly come and destroy this land, and shall cause to cease from thence man and beast?
30Therefore thus saith the LORD of Jehoiakim king of Judah; He shall have none to sit upon the throne of David: and his dead body shall be cast out in the day to the heat, and in the night to the frost.
31And I will punish him and his seed and his servants for their iniquity; and I will bring upon them, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and upon the men of Judah, all the evil that I have pronounced against them; but they hearkened not.
32Then took Jeremiah another roll, and gave it to Baruch the scribe, the son of Neriah; who wrote therein from the mouth of Jeremiah all the words of the book which Jehoiakim king of Judah had burned in the fire: and there were added besides unto them many like words.
1et factum est in anno quarto Ioachim filii Iosiae regis Iuda factum est verbum hoc ad Hieremiam a Domino dicens
2tolle volumen libri et scribes in eo omnia verba quae locutus sum tibi adversum Israhel et Iudam et adversum omnes gentes a die qua locutus sum ad te ex diebus Iosiae usque ad diem hanc
3si forte audiente domo Iuda universa mala quae ego cogito facere eis revertatur unusquisque a via sua pessima et propitius ero iniquitati et peccato eorum
4vocavit ergo Hieremias Baruch filium Neriae et scripsit Baruch ex ore Hieremiae omnes sermones Domini quos locutus est ad eum in volumine libri
5et praecepit Hieremias Baruch dicens ego clausus sum nec valeo ingredi domum Domini
6ingredere ergo tu et lege de volumine in quo scripsisti ex ore meo verba Domini audiente populo in domo Domini in die ieiunii insuper et audiente universo Iuda qui veniunt de civitatibus suis leges eis
7si forte cadat oratio eorum in conspectu Domini et revertatur unusquisque a via sua pessima quoniam magnus furor et indignatio quam locutus est Dominus adversum populum hunc
8et fecit Baruch filius Neriae iuxta omnia quae praeceperat ei Hieremias propheta legens ex volumine sermones Domini in domo Domini
9factum est autem in anno quinto Ioachim filii Iosiae regis Iuda in mense nono praedicaverunt ieiunium in conspectu Domini omni populo in Hierusalem et universae multitudini quae confluxerat de civitatibus Iuda in Hierusalem
10legitque Baruch ex volumine sermones Hieremiae in domo Domini in gazofilacio Gamariae filii Saphan scribae in vestibulo superiori in introitu portae novae domus Domini audiente omni populo
11cumque audisset Micheas filius Gamariae filii Saphan omnes sermones Domini ex libro
12descendit in domum regis ad gazofilacium scribae et ecce ibi omnes principes sedebant Elisama scriba et Dalaias filius Semeiae et Elnathan filius Achobor et Gamarias filius Saphan et Sedecias filius Ananiae et universi principes
13et nuntiavit eis Micheas omnia verba quae audivit legente Baruch ex volumine in auribus populi
14miserunt itaque omnes principes ad Baruch Iudi filium Nathaniae filii Selemiae filii Chusi dicentes volumen ex quo legisti audiente populo sume in manu tua et veni tulit ergo Baruch filius Neriae volumen in manu sua et venit ad eos
15et dixerunt ad eum sede et lege haec in auribus nostris et legit Baruch in auribus eorum
16igitur cum audissent omnia verba obstipuerunt unusquisque ad proximum suum et dixerunt ad Baruch nuntiare debemus regi omnes sermones istos
17et interrogaverunt eum dicentes indica nobis quomodo scripsisti omnes sermones istos ex ore eius
18dixit autem eis Baruch ex ore suo loquebatur quasi legens ad me omnes sermones istos et ego scribebam in volumine atramento
19et dixerunt principes ad Baruch vade et abscondere tu et Hieremias et nemo sciat ubi sitis
20et ingressi sunt ad regem in atrium porro volumen commendaverunt in gazofilacio Elisamae scribae et nuntiaverunt audiente rege omnes sermones
21misitque rex Iudi ut sumeret volumen qui tollens illud de gazofilacio Elisamae scribae legit audiente rege et universis principibus qui stabant circa regem
22rex autem sedebat in domo hiemali in mense nono et posita erat arula coram eo plena prunis
23cumque legisset Iudi tres pagellas vel quattuor scidit illud scalpello scribae et proiecit in igne qui erat super arulam donec consumeretur omne volumen igni qui erat in arula
24et non timuerunt neque sciderunt vestimenta sua rex et omnes servi eius qui audierunt universos sermones istos
25verumtamen Elnathan et Dalaias et Gamarias contradixerunt regi ne conbureret librum et non audivit eos
26et praecepit rex Hieremahel filio Ammelech et Saraiae filio Ezrihel et Selemiae filio Abdehel ut conprehenderent Baruch scribam et Hieremiam prophetam abscondit autem eos Dominus
27et factum est verbum Domini ad Hieremiam postquam conbuserat rex volumen et sermones quos scripserat Baruch ex ore Hieremiae dicens
28rursum tolle volumen aliud et scribe in eo omnes sermones priores qui erant in volumine primo quod conbusit Ioachim rex Iuda
29et ad Ioachim regem Iuda dices haec dicit Dominus tu conbusisti volumen illud dicens quare scripsisti in eo adnuntians festinus veniet rex Babylonis et vastabit terram hanc et cessare faciet ex illa hominem et iumentum
30propterea haec dicit Dominus contra Ioachim regem Iuda non erit ex eo qui sedeat super solium David et cadaver eius proicietur ad aestum per diem et ad gelu per noctem
31et visitabo contra eum et contra semen eius et contra servos eius iniquitates suas et adducam super eos et super habitatores Hierusalem et super viros Iuda omne malum quod locutus sum ad eos et non audierunt
32Hieremias autem tulit volumen aliud et dedit illud Baruch filio Neriae scribae qui scripsit in eo ex ore Hieremiae omnes sermones libri quem conbuserat Ioachim rex Iuda igni et insuper additi sunt sermones multo plures quam ante fuerant
