Jeremiah 36 Text (WEB)
  1. It happened in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, that this word came to Jeremiah from Yahweh, saying,
  2. Take a scroll of a book, and write therein all the words that I have spoken to you against Israel, and against Judah, and against all the nations, from the day I spoke to you, from the days of Josiah, even to this day.
  3. It may be that the house of Judah will hear all the evil which I purpose to do to them; that they may return every man from his evil way; that I may forgive their iniquity and their sin.
  4. Then Jeremiah called Baruch the son of Neriah; and Baruch wrote from the mouth of Jeremiah all the words of Yahweh, which he had spoken to him, on a scroll of a book.
  5. Jeremiah commanded Baruch, saying, I am shut up; I can't go into the house of Yahweh:
  6. therefore you go, and read in the scroll, which you have written from my mouth, the words of Yahweh in the ears of the people in Yahweh's house on the fast day; and also you shall read them in the ears of all Judah who come out of their cities.
  7. It may be they will present their supplication before Yahweh, and will return everyone from his evil way; for great is the anger and the wrath that Yahweh has pronounced against this people.
  8. Baruch the son of Neriah did according to all that Jeremiah the prophet commanded him, reading in the book the words of Yahweh in Yahweh's house.
  9. Now it happened in the fifth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, in the ninth month, that all the people in Jerusalem, and all the people who came from the cities of Judah to Jerusalem, proclaimed a fast before Yahweh.
  10. Then read Baruch in the book the words of Jeremiah in the house of Yahweh, in the room of Gemariah the son of Shaphan, the scribe, in the upper court, at the entry of the new gate of Yahweh's house, in the ears of all the people.
  11. When Micaiah the son of Gemariah, the son of Shaphan, had heard out of the book all the words of Yahweh,
  12. he went down into the king's house, into the scribe's room: and behold, all the princes were sitting there, [to wit], 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.
  13. Then Micaiah declared to them all the words that he had heard, when Baruch read the book in the ears of the people.
  14. Therefore all the princes sent Jehudi the son of Nethaniah, the son of Shelemiah, the son of Cushi, to Baruch, saying, Take in your hand the scroll in which you have read in the ears of the people, and come. So Baruch the son of Neriah took the scroll in his hand, and came to them.
  15. They said to him, Sit down now, and read it in our ears. So Baruch read it in their ears.
  16. Now it happened, when they had heard all the words, they turned in fear one toward another, and said to Baruch, We will surely tell the king of all these words.
  17. They asked Baruch, saying, Tell us now, How did you write all these words at his mouth?
  18. Then Baruch answered them, He pronounced all these words to me with his mouth, and I wrote them with ink in the book.
  19. Then the princes said to Baruch, Go, hide, you and Jeremiah; and let no man know where you are.
  20. They went in to the king into the court; but they had laid up the scroll in the room of Elishama the scribe; and they told all the words in the ears of the king.
  21. So the king sent Jehudi to get the scroll; and he took it out of the room of Elishama the scribe. Jehudi read it in the ears of the king, and in the ears of all the princes who stood beside the king.
  22. Now the king was sitting in the winter house in the ninth month: and [there was a fire in] the brazier burning before him.
  23. It happened, when Jehudi had read three or four leaves, that [the king] cut it with the penknife, and cast it into the fire that was in the brazier, until all the scroll was consumed in the fire that was in the brazier.
  24. They were not afraid, nor tore their garments, neither the king, nor any of his servants who heard all these words.
  25. Moreover Elnathan and Delaiah and Gemariah had made intercession to the king that he would not burn the scroll; but he would not hear them.
  26. The king commanded Jerahmeel the king's son, and Seraiah the son of Azriel, and Shelemiah the son of Abdeel, to take Baruch the scribe and Jeremiah the prophet; but Yahweh hid them.
  27. Then the word of Yahweh came to Jeremiah, after that the king had burned the scroll, and the words which Baruch wrote at the mouth of Jeremiah, saying,
  28. Take again another scroll, and write in it all the former words that were in the first scroll, which Jehoiakim the king of Judah has burned.
  29. Concerning Jehoiakim king of Judah you shall say, Thus says Yahweh: You have burned this scroll, saying, Why have you written therein, saying, The king of Babylon shall certainly come and destroy this land, and shall cause to cease from there man and animal?
  30. Therefore thus says Yahweh concerning Jehoiakim king of Judah: He shall have none to sit on 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.
  31. I will punish him and his seed and his servants for their iniquity; and I will bring on them, and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and on the men of Judah, all the evil that I have pronounced against them, but they didn't listen.
  32. Then took Jeremiah another scroll, 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 to them many like words.

  1. και εν τω ενιαυτω τω τεταρτω ιωακιμ υιου ιωσια βασιλεως ιουδα εγενηθη λογος κυριου προς με
  2. λαβε σεαυτω χαρτιον βιβλιου και γραψον επ' αυτου παντας τους λογους ους εχρηματισα προς σε επι ιερουσαλημ και επι ιουδαν και επι παντα τα εθνη αφ' ης ημερας λαλησαντος μου προς σε αφ' ημερων ιωσια βασιλεως ιουδα και εως της ημερας

  4. και εκαλεσεν ιερεμιας τον βαρουχ υιον νηριου και εγραψεν απο στοματος ιερεμιου παντας τους λογους κυριου ους εχρηματισεν προς αυτον εις χαρτιον
  5. και ενετειλατο ιερεμιας τω βαρουχ λεγων εγω φυλασσομαι ου μη δυνωμαι εισελθειν εις οικον

  7. ισως πεσειται ελεος αυτων κατα προσωπον κυριου και αποστρεψουσιν εκ της οδου αυτων της πονηρας οτι μεγας ο θυμος και η οργη κυριου ην ελαλησεν επι τον λαον
  8. και εποιησεν βαρουχ κατα παντα α ενετειλατο αυτω ιερεμιας του αναγνωναι εν τω βιβλιω λογους κυριου εν οικω
  9. και εγενηθη εν τω ετει τω ογδοω βασιλει ιωακιμ τω μηνι τω ενατω εξεκκλησιασαν νηστειαν κατα προσωπον κυριου πας ο λαος εν ιερουσαλημ και οικος
  10. και ανεγινωσκε βαρουχ εν τω βιβλιω τους λογους ιερεμιου εν οικω κυριου εν οικω γαμαριου υιου σαφαν του γραμματεως εν τη αυλη τη επανω εν προθυροις πυλης του οικου κυριου της καινης εν ωσι παντος του

  12. και κατεβη εις οικον του βασιλεως εις τον οικον του γραμματεως και ιδου εκει παντες οι αρχοντες εκαθηντο ελισαμα ο γραμματευς και δαλαιας υιος σελεμιου και ελναθαν υιος ακχοβωρ και γαμαριας υιος σαφαν και σεδεκιας υιος ανανιου και παντες οι
  13. και ανηγγειλεν αυτοις μιχαιας παντας τους λογους ους ηκουσεν αναγινωσκοντος του βαρουχ εις τα ωτα του
  14. και απεστειλαν παντες οι αρχοντες προς βαρουχ υιον νηριου τον ιουδιν υιον ναθανιου υιου σελεμιου υιου χουσι λεγοντες το χαρτιον εν ω συ αναγινωσκεις εν αυτω εν ωσι του λαου λαβε αυτο εις την χειρα σου και ηκε και ελαβεν βαρουχ το χαρτιον και κατεβη προς
  15. και ειπαν αυτω παλιν αναγνωθι εις τα ωτα ημων και ανεγνω
  16. και εγενηθη ως ηκουσαν παντας τους λογους συνεβουλευσαντο εκαστος προς τον πλησιον αυτου και ειπαν αναγγελλοντες αναγγειλωμεν τω βασιλει απαντας τους λογους
  17. και τον βαρουχ ηρωτησαν λεγοντες ποθεν εγραψας παντας τους λογους
  18. και ειπεν βαρουχ απο στοματος αυτου ανηγγειλεν μοι ιερεμιας παντας τους λογους τουτους και εγραφον εν
  19. και ειπαν τω βαρουχ βαδισον κατακρυβηθι συ και ιερεμιας ανθρωπος μη γνωτω που
  20. και εισηλθον προς τον βασιλεα εις την αυλην και το χαρτιον εδωκαν φυλασσειν εν οικω ελισαμα και ανηγγειλαν τω βασιλει παντας τους
  21. και απεστειλεν ο βασιλευς τον ιουδιν λαβειν το χαρτιον και ελαβεν αυτο εξ οικου ελισαμα και ανεγνω ιουδιν εις τα ωτα του βασιλεως και εις τα ωτα παντων των αρχοντων των εστηκοτων περι τον
  22. και ο βασιλευς εκαθητο εν οικω χειμερινω και εσχαρα πυρος κατα προσωπον

  28. παλιν λαβε συ χαρτιον ετερον και γραψον παντας τους λογους τους οντας επι του χαρτιου ους κατεκαυσεν ο βασιλευς
  29. και ερεις ουτως ειπεν κυριος συ κατεκαυσας το χαρτιον τουτο λεγων δια τι εγραψας επ' αυτω λεγων εισπορευομενος εισπορευσεται ο βασιλευς βαβυλωνος και εξολεθρευσει την γην ταυτην και εκλειψει απ' αυτης ανθρωπος και
  30. δια τουτο ουτως ειπεν κυριος επι ιωακιμ βασιλεα ιουδα ουκ εσται αυτω καθημενος επι θρονου δαυιδ και το θνησιμαιον αυτου εσται ερριμμενον εν τω καυματι της ημερας και εν τω παγετω της

  32. και ελαβεν βαρουχ χαρτιον ετερον και εγραψεν επ' αυτω απο στοματος ιερεμιου απαντας τους λογους του βιβλιου ου κατεκαυσεν ιωακιμ και ετι προσετεθησαν αυτω λογοι πλειονες ως
Jeremiah 36 Text (Latin)
  1. Et factum est in anno quarto Joakim filii Josiæ regis Juda, factum est verbum hoc ad Jeremiam a Domino, dicens :
  2. Tolle volumen libri, et scribes in eo omnia verba quæ locutus sum tibi adversum Israël et Judam, et adversum omnes gentes, a die qua locutus sum ad te, ex diebus Josiæ usque ad diem hanc :
  3. si forte, audiente domo Juda universa mala quæ ego cogito facere eis, revertatur unusquisque a via sua pessima, et propitius ero iniquitati et peccato eorum.
  4. Vocavit ergo Jeremias Baruch filium Neriæ : et scripsit Baruch ex ore Jeremiæ omnes sermones Domini quos locutus est ad eum, in volumine libri :
  5. et præcepit Jeremias Baruch, dicens : Ego clausus sum, nec valeo ingredi domum Domini.
  6. Ingredere ergo tu, et lege de volumine in quo scripsisti ex ore meo verba Domini, audiente populo in domo Domini, in die jejunii, insuper et audiente universo Juda, qui veniunt de civitatibus suis, leges eis,
  7. si forte cadat oratio eorum in conspectu Domini, et revertatur unusquisque a via sua pessima, quoniam magnus furor et indignatio est quam locutus est Dominus adversus populum hunc.
  8. Et fecit Baruch filius Neriæ juxta omnia quæ præceperat ei Jeremias propheta, legens ex volumine sermones Domini in domo Domini.
  9. Factum est autem in anno quinto Joakim filii Josiæ regis Juda, in mense nono : prædicaverunt jejunium in conspectu Domini omni populo in Jerusalem, et universæ multitudini quæ confluxerat de civitatibus Juda in Jerusalem.
  10. Legitque Baruch ex volumine sermones Jeremiæ in domo Domini, in gazophylacio Gamariæ, filii Saphan scribæ, in vestibulo superiori, in introitu portæ novæ domus Domni, audiente omni populo.
  11. Cumque audisset Michæas filius Gamariæ filii Saphan, omnes sermones Domini ex libro,
  12. descendit in domum regis, ad gazophylacium scribæ, et ecce ibi omnes principes sedebant : Elisama scriba, et Dalaias filius Semeiæ, et Elnathan filius Achobor, et Gamarias filius Saphan, et Sedecias filius Hananiæ, et universi principes :
  13. et nuntiavit eis Michæas omnia verba quæ audivit, legente Baruch ex volumine in auribus populi.
  14. Miserunt itaque omnes principes ad Baruch Judi filium Nathaniæ filii Selemiæ filii Chusi, dicentes : Volumen ex quo legisti, audiente populo, sume in manu tua, et veni. Tulit ergo Baruch filius Neriæ volumen in manu sua, et venit ad eos,
  15. et dixerunt ad eum : Sede, et lege hæc in auribus nostris. Et legit Baruch in auribus eorum.
  16. Igitur cum audissent omnia verba, obstupuerunt unusquisque ad proximum suum, et dixerunt ad Baruch : Nuntiare debemus regi omnes sermones istos.
  17. Et interrogaverunt eum, dicentes : Indica nobis quomodo scripsisti omnes sermones istos ex ore ejus.
  18. Dixit autem eis Baruch : Ex ore suo loquebatur quasi legens ad me omnes sermones istos, et ego scribebam in volumine atramento.
  19. Et dixerunt principes ad Baruch : Vade, et abscondere, tu et Jeremias, et nemo sciat ubi sitis.
  20. Et ingressi sunt ad regem in atrium : porro volumen commendaverunt in gazophylacio Elisamæ scribæ, et nuntiaverunt, audiente rege, omnes sermones.
  21. Misitque rex Judi ut sumeret volumen : qui tollens illud de gazophylacio Elisamæ scribæ, legit, audiente rege et universis principibus qui stabant circa regem.
  22. Rex autem sedebat in domo hiemali, in mense nono, et posita erat arula coram eo plena prunis.
  23. Cumque legisset Judi tres pagellas vel quatuor, scidit illud scalpello scribæ, et projecit in ignem qui erat super arulam, donec consumeretur omne volumen igni qui erat in arula.
  24. Et non timuerunt, neque sciderunt vestimenta sua, rex et omnes servi ejus qui audierunt universos sermones istos.
  25. Verumtamen Elnathan, et Dalaias, et Gamarias, contradixerunt regi, ne combureret librum : et non audivit eos.
  26. Et præcepit rex Jeremiel filio Amelech, et Saraiæ filio Ezriel, et Selemiæ filio Abdeel, ut comprehenderent Baruch scribam, et Jeremiam prophetam : abscondit autem eos Dominus.
  27. Et factum est verbum Domini ad Jeremiam prophetam, postquam combusserat rex volumen et sermones quos scripserat Baruch ex ore Jeremiæ, dicens :
  28. Rursum tolle volumen aliud, et scribe in eo omnes sermones priores qui erant in primo volumine, quod combussit Joakim rex Juda.
  29. Et ad Joakim regem Juda dices : Hæc dicit Dominus : Tu combussisti volumen illud, dicens : Quare scripsisti in eo annuntians : Festinus veniet rex Babylonis, et vastabit terram hanc, et cessare faciet ex illa hominem et jumentum ?
  30. Propterea hæc dicit Dominus contra Joakim regem Juda : Non erit ex eo qui sedeat super solium David : et cadaver ejus projicietur ad æstum per diem, et ad gelu per noctem.
  31. Et visitabo contra eum, et contra semen ejus, et contra servos ejus, iniquitates suas : et adducam super eos, et super habitatores Jerusalem, et super viros Juda, omne malum quod locutus sum ad eos, et non audierunt.
  32. Jeremias autem tulit volumen aliud, et dedit illud Baruch filio Neriæ scribæ : qui scripsit in eo ex ore Jeremiæ omnes sermones libri quem combusserat Joakim rex Juda igni : et insuper additi sunt sermones multo plures quam antea fuerant.
Jeremiah 36 Text (KJV)
  1. And 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,
  2. Take 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.
  3. It 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.
  4. Then 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.
  5. And Jeremiah commanded Baruch, saying, I am shut up; I cannot go into the house of the LORD:
  6. Therefore 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.
  7. It 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.
  8. And 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.
  9. And 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.
  10. Then 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.
  11. When Michaiah the son of Gemariah, the son of Shaphan, had heard out of the book all the words of the LORD,
  12. Then 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.
  13. Then Michaiah declared unto them all the words that he had heard, when Baruch read the book in the ears of the people.
  14. Therefore 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.
  15. And they said unto him, Sit down now, and read it in our ears. So Baruch read it in their ears.
  16. Now 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.
  17. And they asked Baruch, saying, Tell us now, How didst thou write all these words at his mouth?
  18. Then Baruch answered them, He pronounced all these words unto me with his mouth, and I wrote them with ink in the book.
  19. Then said the princes unto Baruch, Go, hide thee, thou and Jeremiah; and let no man know where ye be.
  20. And 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.
  21. So 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.
  22. Now the king sat in the winterhouse in the ninth month: and there was a fire on the hearth burning before him.
  23. And 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.
  24. Yet they were not afraid, nor rent their garments, neither the king, nor any of his servants that heard all these words.
  25. Nevertheless Elnathan and Delaiah and Gemariah had made intercession to the king that he would not burn the roll: but he would not hear them.
  26. But 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.
  27. Then 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,
  28. Take 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.
  29. And thou shalt say to Jehoiakim the 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?
  30. Therefore 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.
  31. And 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.
  32. Then 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.
