The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Jeremiah, Chapter 44 (Latin)
1The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the Jews which dwell in the land of Egypt, which dwell at Migdol, and at Tahpanhes, and at Noph, and in the country of Pathros, saying,
2Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Ye have seen all the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, and upon all the cities of Judah; and, behold, this day they are a desolation, and no man dwelleth therein,
3Because of their wickedness which they have committed to provoke me to anger, in that they went to burn incense, and to serve other gods, whom they knew not, neither they, ye, nor your fathers.
4Howbeit I sent unto you all my servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, saying, Oh, do not this abominable thing that I hate.
5But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear to turn from their wickedness, to burn no incense unto other gods.
6Wherefore my fury and mine anger was poured forth, and was kindled in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem; and they are wasted and desolate, as at this day.
7Therefore now thus saith the LORD, the God of hosts, the God of Israel; Wherefore commit ye this great evil against your souls, to cut off from you man and woman, child and suckling, out of Judah, to leave you none to remain;
8In that ye provoke me unto wrath with the works of your hands, burning incense unto other gods in the land of Egypt, whither ye be gone to dwell, that ye might cut yourselves off, and that ye might be a curse and a reproach among all the nations of the earth?
9Have ye forgotten the wickedness of your fathers, and the wickedness of the kings of Judah, and the wickedness of their wives, and your own wickedness, and the wickedness of your wives, which they have committed in the land of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem?
10They are not humbled even unto this day, neither have they feared, nor walked in my law, nor in my statutes, that I set before you and before your fathers.
11Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will set my face against you for evil, and to cut off all Judah.
12And I will take the remnant of Judah, that have set their faces to go into the land of Egypt to sojourn there, and they shall all be consumed, and fall in the land of Egypt; they shall even be consumed by the sword and by the famine: they shall die, from the least even unto the greatest, by the sword and by the famine: and they shall be an execration, and an astonishment, and a curse, and a reproach.
13For I will punish them that dwell in the land of Egypt, as I have punished Jerusalem, by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence:
14So that none of the remnant of Judah, which are gone into the land of Egypt to sojourn there, shall escape or remain, that they should return into the land of Judah, to the which they have a desire to return to dwell there: for none shall return but such as shall escape.
15Then all the men which knew that their wives had burned incense unto other gods, and all the women that stood by, a great multitude, even all the people that dwelt in the land of Egypt, in Pathros, answered Jeremiah, saying,
16As for the word that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of the LORD, we will not hearken unto thee.
17But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil.
18But since we left off to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine.
19And when we burned incense to the queen of heaven, and poured out drink offerings unto her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink offerings unto her, without our men?
20Then Jeremiah said unto all the people, to the men, and to the women, and to all the people which had given him that answer, saying,
21The incense that ye burned in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, ye, and your fathers, your kings, and your princes, and the people of the land, did not the LORD remember them, and came it not into his mind?
22So that the LORD could no longer bear, because of the evil of your doings, and because of the abominations which ye have committed; therefore is your land a desolation, and an astonishment, and a curse, without an inhabitant, as at this day.
23Because ye have burned incense, and because ye have sinned against the LORD, and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD, nor walked in his law, nor in his statutes, nor in his testimonies; therefore this evil is happened unto you, as at this day.
24Moreover Jeremiah said unto all the people, and to all the women, Hear the word of the LORD, all Judah that are in the land of Egypt:
25Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, saying; Ye and your wives have both spoken with your mouths, and fulfilled with your hand, saying, We will surely perform our vows that we have vowed, to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her: ye will surely accomplish your vows, and surely perform your vows.
26Therefore hear ye the word of the LORD, all Judah that dwell in the land of Egypt; Behold, I have sworn by my great name, saith the LORD, that my name shall no more be named in the mouth of any man of Judah in all the land of Egypt, saying, The Lord GOD liveth.
27Behold, I will watch over them for evil, and not for good: and all the men of Judah that are in the land of Egypt shall be consumed by the sword and by the famine, until there be an end of them.
28Yet a small number that escape the sword shall return out of the land of Egypt into the land of Judah, and all the remnant of Judah, that are gone into the land of Egypt to sojourn there, shall know whose words shall stand, mine, or their's.
29And this shall be a sign unto you, saith the LORD, that I will punish you in this place, that ye may know that my words shall surely stand against you for evil:
30Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will give Pharaohhophra king of Egypt into the hand of his enemies, and into the hand of them that seek his life; as I gave Zedekiah king of Judah into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, his enemy, and that sought his life.
1verbum quod factum est ad Hieremiam ad omnes Iudaeos qui habitant in terra Aegypti habitantes in Magdolo et in Tafnis et in Memphis et in terra Fatures dicens
2haec dicit Dominus exercituum Deus Israhel vos vidistis omne malum istud quod adduxi super Hierusalem et super omnes urbes Iuda et ecce sunt desertae hodie et non est in eis habitator
3propter malitiam quam fecerunt ut me ad iracundiam provocarent et irent et sacrificarent et colerent deos alienos quos nesciebant et illi et vos et patres vestri
4et misi ad vos omnes servos meos prophetas de nocte consurgens mittensque et dicens nolite facere verbum abominationis huius quam odi
5et non audierunt nec inclinaverunt aurem suam ut converterentur a malis suis et non sacrificarent diis alienis
6et conflata est indignatio mea et furor meus et succensa est in civitatibus Iuda et in plateis Hierusalem et versae sunt in solitudinem et vastitatem secundum diem hanc
7et nunc haec dicit Dominus exercituum Deus Israhel quare vos facitis malum grande contra animas vestras ut intereat ex vobis vir et mulier parvulus et lactans de medio Iudae nec relinquatur vobis quicquam residuum
8provocantes me in operibus manuum vestrarum sacrificando diis alienis in terra Aegypti in quam ingressi estis ut habitetis ibi et dispereatis et sitis in maledictionem et in obprobrium cunctis gentibus terrae
9numquid obliti estis mala patrum vestrorum et mala regum Iuda et mala uxorum eius et mala vestra et mala uxorum vestrarum quae fecerunt in terra Iuda et in regionibus Hierusalem
10non sunt mundati usque ad diem hanc et non timuerunt et non ambulaverunt in lege et in praeceptis meis quae dedi coram vobis et coram patribus vestris
11ideo haec dicit Dominus exercituum Deus Israhel ecce ego pono faciem meam in vobis in malum et disperdam omnem Iudam
12et adsumam reliquias Iudae qui posuerunt facies suas ut ingrederentur terram Aegypti et habitarent ibi et consumentur omnes in terra Aegypti cadent in gladio et in fame consumentur a minimo usque ad maximum in gladio et in fame morientur et erunt in iusiurandum et in miraculum et in maledictionem et in obprobrium
13et visitabo habitatores terrae Aegypti sicut visitavi super Hierusalem in gladio et in fame et in peste
14et non erit qui effugiat et sit residuus de reliquiis Iudaeorum qui vadunt ut peregrinentur in terra Aegypti et revertantur in terram Iuda ad quam ipsi elevant animas suas ut revertantur et habitent ibi non revertentur nisi qui fugerint
15responderunt autem Hieremiae omnes viri scientes quod sacrificarent uxores eorum diis alienis et universae mulieres quarum stabat multitudo grandis et omnis populus habitantium in terra Aegypti in Fatures dicens
16sermonem quem locutus es ad nos in nomine Domini non audiemus ex te
17sed facientes faciemus omne verbum quod egreditur de ore nostro ut sacrificemus Reginae caeli et libemus ei libamina sicut fecimus nos et patres nostri reges nostri et principes nostri in urbibus Iuda et in plateis Hierusalem et saturati sumus panibus et bene nobis erat malumque non vidimus
18ex eo autem quo cessavimus sacrificare Reginae caeli et libare ei libamina indigemus omnibus et gladio et fame consumpti sumus
19quod si nos sacrificamus Reginae caeli et libamus ei libamina numquid sine viris nostris fecimus ei placentas ad colendum eam et liba libandi
20et dixit Hieremias ad omnem populum adversum viros et adversum mulieres et adversum universam plebem qui responderant ei verbum dicens
21numquid non sacrificium quod sacrificastis in civitatibus Iuda et in plateis Hierusalem vos et patres vestri reges vestri et principes vestri et populus terrae horum recordatus est Dominus et ascendit super cor eius
22et non poterat Dominus ultra portare propter malitiam studiorum vestrorum et propter abominationes quas fecistis et facta est terra vestra in desolationem et in stuporem et in maledictum eo quod non sit habitator sicut est dies haec
23propterea quod sacrificaveritis idolis et peccaveritis Domino et non audieritis vocem Domini et in lege et in praeceptis et in testimoniis eius non ambulaveritis idcirco evenerunt vobis mala haec sicut est dies haec
24dixit autem Hieremias ad omnem populum et ad universas mulieres audite verbum Domini omnis Iuda qui estis in terra Aegypti
25haec inquit Dominus exercituum Deus Israhel dicens vos et uxores vestrae locuti estis ore vestro et manibus vestris implestis dicentes faciamus vota nostra quae vovimus ut sacrificemus Reginae caeli et libemus ei libamina implestis vota vestra et opere perpetrastis ea
26ideo audite verbum Domini omnis Iuda qui habitatis in terra Aegypti ecce ego iuravi in nomine meo magno ait Dominus quia nequaquam ultra nomen meum vocabitur ex ore omnis viri iudaei dicentis vivit Dominus Deus in omni terra Aegypti
27ecce ego vigilabo super eos in malum et non in bonum et consumentur omnes viri Iuda qui sunt in terra Aegypti gladio et fame donec penitus consumantur
28et qui fugerint gladium revertentur de terra Aegypti in terram Iuda viri pauci et scient omnes reliquiae Iuda ingredientium terram Aegypti ut habitent ibi cuius sermo conpleatur meus an illorum
29et hoc vobis signum ait Dominus quod visitem ego super vos in loco isto ut sciatis quia vere conplebuntur sermones mei contra vos in malum
30haec dicit Dominus ecce ego tradam Pharaonem Efree regem Aegypti in manu inimicorum eius et in manu quaerentium animam illius sicut tradidi Sedeciam regem Iuda in manu Nabuchodonosor regis Babylonis inimici sui et quaerentis animam eius
