The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Jeremiah, Chapter 39 (Latin)
1In the ninth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the tenth month, came Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon and all his army against Jerusalem, and they besieged it.
2And in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month, the ninth day of the month, the city was broken up.
3And all the princes of the king of Babylon came in, and sat in the middle gate, even Nergalsharezer, Samgarnebo, Sarsechim, Rabsaris, Nergalsharezer, Rabmag, with all the residue of the princes of the king of Babylon.
4And it came to pass, that when Zedekiah the king of Judah saw them, and all the men of war, then they fled, and went forth out of the city by night, by the way of the king's garden, by the gate betwixt the two walls: and he went out the way of the plain.
5But the Chaldeans' army pursued after them, and overtook Zedekiah in the plains of Jericho: and when they had taken him, they brought him up to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon to Riblah in the land of Hamath, where he gave judgment upon him.
6Then the king of Babylon slew the sons of Zedekiah in Riblah before his eyes: also the king of Babylon slew all the nobles of Judah.
7Moreover he put out Zedekiah's eyes, and bound him with chains, to carry him to Babylon.
8And the Chaldeans burned the king's house, and the houses of the people, with fire, and brake down the walls of Jerusalem.
9Then Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried away captive into Babylon the remnant of the people that remained in the city, and those that fell away, that fell to him, with the rest of the people that remained.
10But Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard left of the poor of the people, which had nothing, in the land of Judah, and gave them vineyards and fields at the same time.
11Now Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon gave charge concerning Jeremiah to Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard, saying,
12Take him, and look well to him, and do him no harm; but do unto him even as he shall say unto thee.
13So Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard sent, and Nebushasban, Rabsaris, and Nergalsharezer, Rabmag, and all the king of Babylon's princes;
14Even they sent, and took Jeremiah out of the court of the prison, and committed him unto Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son of Shaphan, that he should carry him home: so he dwelt among the people.
15Now the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah, while he was shut up in the court of the prison, saying,
16Go and speak to Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring my words upon this city for evil, and not for good; and they shall be accomplished in that day before thee.
17But I will deliver thee in that day, saith the LORD: and thou shalt not be given into the hand of the men of whom thou art afraid.
18For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by the sword, but thy life shall be for a prey unto thee: because thou hast put thy trust in me, saith the LORD.
1anno nono Sedeciae regis Iuda mense decimo venit Nabuchodonosor rex Babylonis et omnis exercitus eius ad Hierusalem et obsidebant eam
2undecimo autem anno Sedeciae mense quarto quinta mensis aperta est civitas
3et ingressi sunt omnes principes regis Babylonis et sederunt in porta media Neregel Sereser Semegar Nabu Sarsachim Rabsares Neregel Sereser Rebmag et omnes reliqui principes regis Babylonis
4cumque vidisset eos Sedecias rex Iuda et omnes viri bellatores fugerunt et egressi sunt nocte de civitate per viam horti regis et per portam quae erat inter duos muros et egressi sunt ad viam deserti
5persecutus est autem eos exercitus Chaldeorum et conprehenderunt Sedeciam in campo solitudinis hiericuntinae et captum adduxerunt ad Nabuchodonosor regem Babylonis in Reblatha quae est in terra Emath et locutus est ad eum iudicia
6et occidit rex Babylonis filios Sedeciae in Reblatha in oculis eius et omnes nobiles Iuda occidit rex Babylonis
7oculos quoque Sedeciae eruit et vinxit eum conpedibus ut duceretur in Babylonem
8domum quoque regis et domum vulgi succenderunt Chaldei igni et murum Hierusalem subverterunt
9et reliquias populi quae remanserunt in civitate et perfugas qui transfugerant ad eum et superfluos vulgi qui remanserant transtulit Nabuzardan magister militum in Babylonem
10et de plebe pauperum qui nihil penitus habebant dimisit Nabuzardan magister militum in terra Iuda et dedit eis vineas et cisternas in die illa
11praeceperat autem Nabuchodonosor rex Babylonis de Hieremia Nabuzardan magistro militiae dicens
12tolle illum et pone super eum oculos tuos nihilque ei mali facias sed ut voluerit sic facies ei
13misit ergo Nabuzardan princeps militiae et Nabu et Sesban et Rabsares et Neregel et Sereser et Rebmag et omnes optimates regis Babylonis
14miserunt et tulerunt Hieremiam de vestibulo carceris et tradiderunt eum Godoliae filio Ahicam filii Saphan ut intraret domum et habitaret in populo
15ad Hieremiam autem factus fuerat sermo Domini cum clausus esset in vestibulo carceris dicens
16vade et dic Abdemelech Aethiopi dicens haec dicit Dominus exercituum Deus Israhel ecce ego inducam sermones meos super civitatem hanc in malum et non in bonum et erunt in conspectu tuo in die illa
17et liberabo te in die illa ait Dominus et non traderis in manus virorum quos tu formidas
18sed eruens liberabo te et gladio non cades sed erit tibi anima tua in salutem quia in me habuisti fiduciam ait Dominus
