Jeremiah 38 Text (WEB)
  1. Shephatiah the son of Mattan, and Gedaliah the son of Pashhur, and Jucal the son of Shelemiah, and Pashhur the son of Malchijah, heard the words that Jeremiah spoke to all the people, saying,
  2. Thus says Yahweh, He who remains in this city shall die by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence; but he who goes forth to the Chaldeans shall live, and his life shall be to him for a prey, and he shall live.
  3. Thus says Yahweh, This city shall surely be given into the hand of the army of the king of Babylon, and he shall take it.
  4. Then the princes said to the king, "Please let this man be put to death; because he weakens the hands of the men of war who remain in this city, and the hands of all the people, in speaking such words to them: for this man doesn't seek the welfare of this people, but the hurt."
  5. Zedekiah the king said, Behold, he is in your hand; for the king is not he who can do anything against you.
  6. Then took they Jeremiah, and cast him into the dungeon of Malchijah the king's son, that was in the court of the guard: and they let down Jeremiah with cords. In the dungeon there was no water, but mire; and Jeremiah sank in the mire.
  7. Now when Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, a eunuch, who was in the king's house, heard that they had put Jeremiah in the dungeon (the king then sitting in the gate of Benjamin),
  8. Ebedmelech went forth out of the king's house, and spoke to the king, saying,
  9. My lord the king, these men have done evil in all that they have done to Jeremiah the prophet, whom they have cast into the dungeon; and he is likely to die in the place where he is, because of the famine; for there is no more bread in the city.
  10. Then the king commanded Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, saying, Take from here thirty men with you, and take up Jeremiah the prophet out of the dungeon, before he dies.
  11. So Ebedmelech took the men with him, and went into the house of the king under the treasury, and took there rags and worn-out garments, and let them down by cords into the dungeon to Jeremiah.
  12. Ebedmelech the Ethiopian said to Jeremiah, Put now these rags and worn-out garments under your armpits under the cords. Jeremiah did so.
  13. So they drew up Jeremiah with the cords, and took him up out of the dungeon: and Jeremiah remained in the court of the guard.
  14. Then Zedekiah the king sent, and took Jeremiah the prophet to him into the third entry that is in the house of Yahweh: and the king said to Jeremiah, I will ask you something. Hide nothing from me.
  15. Then Jeremiah said to Zedekiah, If I declare it to you, will you not surely put me to death? and if I give you counsel, you will not listen to me.
  16. So Zedekiah the king swore secretly to Jeremiah, saying, As Yahweh lives, who made us this soul, I will not put you to death, neither will I give you into the hand of these men who seek your life.
  17. Then Jeremiah said to Zedekiah, Thus says Yahweh, the God of Armies, the God of Israel: If you will go forth to the king of Babylon's princes, then your soul shall live, and this city shall not be burned with fire; and you shall live, and your house.
  18. But if you will not go forth to the king of Babylon's princes, then shall this city be given into the hand of the Chaldeans, and they shall burn it with fire, and you shall not escape out of their hand.
  19. Zedekiah the king said to Jeremiah, I am afraid of the Jews who are fallen away to the Chaldeans, lest they deliver me into their hand, and they mock me.
  20. But Jeremiah said, They shall not deliver you. Obey, I beg you, the voice of Yahweh, in that which I speak to you: so it shall be well with you, and your soul shall live.
  21. But if you refuse to go forth, this is the word that Yahweh has shown me:
  22. behold, all the women who are left in the king of Judah's house shall be brought forth to the king of Babylon's princes, and those women shall say, Your familiar friends have set you on, and have prevailed over you: [now that] your feet are sunk in the mire, they are turned away back.
  23. They shall bring out all your wives and your children to the Chaldeans; and you shall not escape out of their hand, but shall be taken by the hand of the king of Babylon: and you shall cause this city to be burned with fire.
  24. Then Zedekiah said to Jeremiah, Let no man know of these words, and you shall not die.
  25. But if the princes hear that I have talked with you, and they come to you, and tell you, Declare to us now what you have said to the king; don't hide it from us, and we will not put you to death; also what the king said to you:
  26. then you shall tell them, I presented my supplication before the king, that he would not cause me to return to Jonathan's house, to die there.
  27. Then came all the princes to Jeremiah, and asked him; and he told them according to all these words that the king had commanded. So they left off speaking with him; for the matter was not perceived.
  28. So Jeremiah stayed in the court of the guard until the day that Jerusalem was taken.

  1. וישמע שפטיה בן־מתן וגדליהו בן־פשחור ויוכל בן־שלמיהו ופשחור בן־מלכיה את־הדברים אשר ירמיהו מדבר אל־כל־העם לאמר׃ ס
  2. כה אמר יהוה הישב בעיר הזאת ימות בחרב ברעב ובדבר והיצא אל־הכשדים והיתה־לו נפשו לשלל וחי׃ ס
  3. כה אמר יהוה הנתן תנתן העיר הזאת ביד חיל מלך־בבל ולכדה׃
  4. ויאמרו השרים אל־המלך יומת נא את־האיש הזה כי־על־כן הוא־מרפא את־ידי אנשי המלחמה הנשארים בעיר הזאת ואת ידי כל־העם לדבר אליהם כדברים האלה כי האיש הזה איננו דרש לשלום לעם הזה כי אם־לרעה׃
  5. ויאמר המלך צדקיהו הנה־הוא בידכם כי־אין המלך יוכל אתכם דבר׃
  6. ויקחו את־ירמיהו וישלכו אתו אל־הבור מלכיהו בן־המלך אשר בחצר המטרה וישלחו את־ירמיהו בחבלים ובבור אין־מים כי אם־טיט ויטבע ירמיהו בטיט׃ ס
  7. וישמע עבד־מלך הכושי איש סריס והוא בבית המלך כי־נתנו את־ירמיהו אל־הבור והמלך יושב בשער בנימן׃
  8. ויצא עבד־מלך מבית המלך וידבר אל־המלך לאמר׃
  9. אדני המלך הרעו האנשים האלה את כל־אשר עשו לירמיהו הנביא את אשר־השליכו אל־הבור וימת תחתיו מפני הרעב כי אין הלחם עוד בעיר׃
  10. ויצוה המלך את עבד־מלך הכושי לאמר קח בידך מזה שלשים אנשים והעלית את־ירמיהו הנביא מן־הבור בטרם ימות׃
  11. ויקח עבד־מלך את־האנשים בידו ויבא בית־המלך אל־תחת האוצר ויקח משם בלוי ובלוי מלחים וישלחם אל־ירמיהו אל־הבור בחבלים׃
  12. ויאמר עבד־מלך הכושי אל־ירמיהו שים נא בלואי הסחבות והמלחים תחת אצלות ידיך מתחת לחבלים ויעש ירמיהו כן׃
  13. וימשכו את־ירמיהו בחבלים ויעלו אתו מן־הבור וישב ירמיהו בחצר המטרה׃ ס
  14. וישלח המלך צדקיהו ויקח את־ירמיהו הנביא אליו אל־מבוא השלישי אשר בבית יהוה ויאמר המלך אל־ירמיהו שאל אני אתך דבר אל־תכחד ממני דבר׃
  15. ויאמר ירמיהו אל־צדקיהו כי אגיד לך הלוא המת תמיתני וכי איעצך לא תשמע אלי׃
  16. וישבע המלך צדקיהו אל־ירמיהו בסתר לאמר חי־יהוה אשר עשה־לנו את־הנפש הזאת אם־אמיתך ואם־אתנך ביד האנשים האלה אשר מבקשים את־נפשך׃ ס
  17. ויאמר ירמיהו אל־צדקיהו כה־אמר יהוה אלהי צבאות אלהי ישראל אם־יצא תצא אל־שרי מלך־בבל וחיתה נפשך והעיר הזאת לא תשרף באש וחיתה אתה וביתך׃
  18. ואם לא־תצא אל־שרי מלך בבל ונתנה העיר הזאת ביד הכשדים ושרפוה באש ואתה לא־תמלט מידם׃ ס
  19. ויאמר המלך צדקיהו אל־ירמיהו אני דאג את־היהודים אשר נפלו אל־הכשדים פן־יתנו אתי בידם והתעללו־בי׃ ף
  20. ויאמר ירמיהו לא יתנו שמע־נא בקול יהוה לאשר אני דבר אליך וייטב לך ותחי נפשך׃
  21. ואם־מאן אתה לצאת זה הדבר אשר הראני יהוה׃
  22. והנה כל־הנשים אשר נשארו בבית מלך־יהודה מוצאות אל־שרי מלך בבל והנה אמרות הסיתוך ויכלו לך אנשי שלמך הטבעו בבץ רגלך נסגו אחור׃
  23. ואת־כל־נשיך ואת־בניך מוצאים אל־הכשדים ואתה לא־תמלט מידם כי ביד מלך־בבל תתפש ואת־העיר הזאת תשרף באש׃ ף
  24. ויאמר צדקיהו אל־ירמיהו איש אל־ידע בדברים־האלה ולא תמות׃
  25. וכי־ישמעו השרים כי־דברתי אתך ובאו אליך ואמרו אליכ הגידה־נא לנו מה־דברת אל־המלך אל־תכחד ממנו ולא נמיתך ומה־דבר אליך המלך׃
  26. ואמרת אליהם מפיל־אני תחנתי לפני המלך לבלתי השיבני בית יהונתן למות שם׃ ף
  27. ויבאו כל־השרים אל־ירמיהו וישאלו אתו ויגד להם ככל־הדברים האלה אשר צוה המלך ויחרשו ממנו כי לא־נשמע הדבר׃ ף
  28. וישב ירמיהו בחצר המטרה עד־יום אשר־נלכדה ירושלם ס והיה כאשר נלכדה ירושלם׃ ף
Jeremiah 38 Text (Greek)
  1. και ηκουσεν σαφατιας υιος μαθαν και γοδολιας υιος πασχωρ και ιωαχαλ υιος σελεμιου τους λογους ους ελαλει ιερεμιας επι τον λαον
  2. ουτως ειπεν κυριος ο κατοικων εν τη πολει ταυτη αποθανειται εν ρομφαια και εν λιμω και ο εκπορευομενος προς τους χαλδαιους ζησεται και εσται η ψυχη αυτου εις ευρεμα και
  3. οτι ουτως ειπεν κυριος παραδιδομενη παραδοθησεται η πολις αυτη εις χειρας δυναμεως βασιλεως βαβυλωνος και συλλημψεται
  4. και ειπαν τω βασιλει αναιρεθητω δη ο ανθρωπος εκεινος οτι αυτος εκλυει τας χειρας των ανθρωπων των πολεμουντων των καταλειπομενων εν τη πολει και τας χειρας παντος του λαου λαλων προς αυτους κατα τους λογους τουτους οτι ο ανθρωπος ουτος ου χρησμολογει ειρηνην τω λαω τουτω αλλ' η
  5. και ειπεν ο βασιλευς ιδου αυτος εν χερσιν υμων οτι ουκ ηδυνατο ο βασιλευς προς
  6. και ερριψαν αυτον εις τον λακκον μελχιου υιου του βασιλεως ος ην εν τη αυλη της φυλακης και εχαλασαν αυτον εις τον λακκον και εν τω λακκω ουκ ην υδωρ αλλ' η βορβορος και ην εν τω
  7. και ηκουσεν αβδεμελεχ ο αιθιοψ και αυτος εν οικια του βασιλεως οτι εδωκαν ιερεμιαν εις τον λακκον και ο βασιλευς ην εν τη πυλη
  8. και εξηλθεν προς αυτον και ελαλησεν προς τον βασιλεα και
  9. επονηρευσω α εποιησας του αποκτειναι τον ανθρωπον τουτον απο προσωπου του λιμου οτι ουκ εισιν ετι αρτοι εν τη
  10. και ενετειλατο ο βασιλευς τω αβδεμελεχ λεγων λαβε εις τας χειρας σου εντευθεν τριακοντα ανθρωπους και αναγαγε αυτον εκ του λακκου ινα μη
  11. και ελαβεν αβδεμελεχ τους ανθρωπους και εισηλθεν εις την οικιαν του βασιλεως την υπογειον και ελαβεν εκειθεν παλαια ρακη και παλαια σχοινια και ερριψεν αυτα προς ιερεμιαν εις τον
  12. και ειπεν ταυτα θες υποκατω των σχοινιων και εποιησεν ιερεμιας
  13. και ειλκυσαν αυτον τοις σχοινιοις και ανηγαγον αυτον εκ του λακκου και εκαθισεν ιερεμιας εν τη αυλη της
  14. και απεστειλεν ο βασιλευς και εκαλεσεν αυτον προς εαυτον εις οικιαν ασελισι την εν οικω κυριου και ειπεν αυτω ο βασιλευς ερωτησω σε λογον και μη δη κρυψης απ' εμου
  15. και ειπεν ιερεμιας τω βασιλει εαν αναγγειλω σοι ουχι θανατω με θανατωσεις και εαν συμβουλευσω σοι ου μη ακουσης
  16. και ωμοσεν αυτω ο βασιλευς λεγων ζη κυριος ος εποιησεν ημιν την ψυχην ταυτην ει αποκτενω σε και ει δωσω σε εις χειρας των ανθρωπων
  17. και ειπεν αυτω ιερεμιας ουτως ειπεν κυριος εαν εξελθων εξελθης προς ηγεμονας βασιλεως βαβυλωνος και ζησεται η ψυχη σου και η πολις αυτη ου μη κατακαυθη εν πυρι και ζηση συ και η οικια
  18. και εαν μη εξελθης δοθησεται η πολις αυτη εις χειρας των χαλδαιων και καυσουσιν αυτην εν πυρι και συ ου μη
  19. και ειπεν ο βασιλευς τω ιερεμια εγω λογον εχω των ιουδαιων των πεφευγοτων προς τους χαλδαιους μη δωσειν με εις χειρας αυτων και καταμωκησονται
  20. και ειπεν ιερεμιας ου μη παραδωσιν σε ακουσον τον λογον κυριου ον εγω λεγω προς σε και βελτιον εσται σοι και ζησεται η ψυχη
  21. και ει μη θελεις συ εξελθειν ουτος ο λογος ον εδειξεν μοι
  22. και ιδου πασαι αι γυναικες αι καταλειφθεισαι εν οικια βασιλεως ιουδα εξηγοντο προς αρχοντας βασιλεως βαβυλωνος και αυται ελεγον ηπατησαν σε και δυνησονται σοι ανδρες ειρηνικοι σου και καταλυσουσιν εν ολισθημασιν ποδας σου απεστρεψαν απο

Jeremiah 38 Text (Latin)
  1. Audivit autem Saphatias filius Mathan, et Gedelias filius Phassur, et Juchal filius Selemiæ, et Phassur filius Melchiæ, sermones quos Jeremias loquebatur ad omnem populum, dicens :
  2. Hæc dicit Dominus : Quicumque manserit in civitate hac, morietur gladio, et fame, et peste : qui autem profugerit ad Chaldæos, vivet, et erit anima ejus sospes et vivens.
  3. Hæc dicit Dominus : Tradendo tradetur civitas hæc in manu exercitus regis Babylonis, et capiet eam.
  4. Et dixerunt principes regi : Rogamus ut occidatur homo iste : de industria enim dissolvit manus virorum bellantium qui remanserunt in civitate hac, et manus universi populi, loquens ad eos juxta verba hæc : siquidem homo iste non quærit pacem populo huic, sed malum.
  5. Et dixit rex Sedecias : Ecce ipse in manibus vestris est : nec enim fas est regem vobis quidquam negare.
  6. Tulerunt ergo Jeremiam, et projecerunt eum in lacum Melchiæ filii Amelech, qui erat in vestibulo carceris : et submiserunt Jeremiam funibus in lacum, in quo non erat aqua, sed lutum : descendit itaque Jeremias in cœnum.
  7. Audivit autem Abdemelech Æthiops, vir eunuchus, qui erat in domo regis, quod misissent Jeremiam in lacum. Porro rex sedebat in porta Benjamin :
  8. et egressus est Abdemelech de domo regis, et locutus est ad regem, dicens :
  9. Domine mi rex, male fecerunt viri isti omnia quæcumque perpetrarunt contra Jeremiam prophetam, mittentes eum in lacum, ut moriatur ibi fame : non sunt enim panes ultra in civitate.
  10. Præcepit itaque rex Abdemelech Æthiopi, dicens : Tolle tecum hinc triginta viros, et leva Jeremiam prophetam de lacu, antequam moriatur.
  11. Assumptis ergo Abdemelech secum viris, ingressus est domum regis, quæ erat sub cellario, et tulit inde veteres pannos, et antiqua quæ computruerant, et submisit ea ad Jeremiam in lacum per funiculos.
  12. Dixitque Abdemelech Æthiops ad Jeremiam : Pone veteres pannos, et hæc scissa et putrida, sub cubito manuum tuarum, et super funes. Fecit ergo Jeremias sic,
  13. et extraxerunt Jeremiam funibus, et eduxerunt eum de lacu : mansit autem Jeremias in vestibulo carceris.
  14. Et misit rex Sedecias, et tulit ad se Jeremiam prophetam ad ostium tertium quod erat in domo Domini : et dixit rex ad Jeremiam : Interrogo ego te sermonem, ne abscondas a me aliquid.
  15. Dixit autem Jeremias ad Sedeciam : Si annuntiavero tibi, numquid non interficies me ? et si consilium dedero tibi, non me audies.
  16. Juravit ergo rex Sedecias Jeremiæ clam, dicens : Vivit Dominus, qui fecit nobis animam hanc, si occidero te, et si tradidero te in manus virorum istorum qui quærunt animam tuam.
  17. Et dixit Jeremias ad Sedeciam : Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël : Si profectus exieris ad principes regis Babylonis, vivet anima tua, et civitas hæc non succendetur igni : et salvus eris tu, et domus tua.
  18. Si autem non exieris ad principes regis Babylonis, tradetur civitas hæc in manus Chaldæorum, et succendent eam igni : et tu non effugies de manu eorum.
  19. Et dixit rex Sedecias ad Jeremiam : Sollicitus sum propter Judæos qui transfugerunt ad Chaldæos, ne forte tradar in manus eorum, et illudant mihi.
  20. Respondit autem Jeremias : Non te tradent. Audi, quæso, vocem Domini, quam ego loquor ad te, et bene tibi erit, et vivet anima tua.
  21. Quod si nolueris egredi, iste est sermo quem ostendit mihi Dominus :
  22. ecce omnes mulieres quæ remanserunt in domo regis Juda educentur ad principes regis Babylonis, et ipsæ dicent : Seduxerunt te, et prævaluerunt adversum te, viri pacifici tui : demerserunt in cœno et in lubrico pedes tuos, et recesserunt a te.
  23. Et omnes uxores tuæ et filii tui educentur ad Chaldæos : et non effugies manus eorum, sed in manu regis Babylonis capieris, et civitatem hanc comburet igni.
  24. Dixit ergo Sedecias ad Jeremiam : Nullus sciat verba hæc, et non morieris.
  25. Si autem audierint principes quia locutus sum tecum, et venerint ad te, et dixerint tibi : Indica nobis quid locutus sis cum rege : ne celes nos, et non te interficiemus, et quid locutus est tecum rex,
  26. dices ad eos : Prostravi ego preces meas coram rege, ne me reduci juberet in domum Jonathan, et ibi morerer.
  27. Venerunt ergo omnes principes ad Jeremiam, et interrogaverunt eum, et locutus est eis juxta omnia verba quæ præceperat ei rex : et cessaverunt ab eo : nihil enim fuerat auditum.
  28. Mansit vero Jeremias in vestibulo carceris usque ad diem quo capta est Jerusalem : et factum est ut caperetur Jerusalem.
Jeremiah 38 Text (KJV)
  1. Then Shephatiah the son of Mattan, and Gedaliah the son of Pashur, and Jucal the son of Shelemiah, and Pashur the son of Malchiah, heard the words that Jeremiah had spoken unto all the people, saying,
  2. Thus saith the LORD, He that remaineth in this city shall die by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence: but he that goeth forth to the Chaldeans shall live; for he shall have his life for a prey, and shall live.
  3. Thus saith the LORD, This city shall surely be given into the hand of the king of Babylon's army, which shall take it.
  4. Therefore the princes said unto the king, We beseech thee, let this man be put to death: for thus he weakeneth the hands of the men of war that remain in this city, and the hands of all the people, in speaking such words unto them: for this man seeketh not the welfare of this people, but the hurt.
  5. Then Zedekiah the king said, Behold, he is in your hand: for the king is not he that can do any thing against you.
  6. Then took they Jeremiah, and cast him into the dungeon of Malchiah the son of Hammelech, that was in the court of the prison: and they let down Jeremiah with cords. And in the dungeon there was no water, but mire: so Jeremiah sunk in the mire.
  7. Now when Ebed-melech the Ethiopian, one of the eunuchs which was in the king's house, heard that they had put Jeremiah in the dungeon; the king then sitting in the gate of Benjamin;
  8. Ebed-melech went forth out of the king's house, and spake to the king, saying,
  9. My lord the king, these men have done evil in all that they have done to Jeremiah the prophet, whom they have cast into the dungeon; and he is like to die for hunger in the place where he is: for there is no more bread in the city.
  10. Then the king commanded Ebed-melech the Ethiopian, saying, Take from hence thirty men with thee, and take up Jeremiah the prophet out of the dungeon, before he die.
  11. So Ebed-melech took the men with him, and went into the house of the king under the treasury, and took thence old cast clouts and old rotten rags, and let them down by cords into the dungeon to Jeremiah.
  12. And Ebed-melech the Ethiopian said unto Jeremiah, Put now these old cast clouts and rotten rags under thine armholes under the cords. And Jeremiah did so.
  13. So they drew up Jeremiah with cords, and took him up out of the dungeon: and Jeremiah remained in the court of the prison.
  14. Then Zedekiah the king sent, and took Jeremiah the prophet unto him into the third entry that is in the house of the LORD: and the king said unto Jeremiah, I will ask thee a thing; hide nothing from me.
  15. Then Jeremiah said unto Zedekiah, If I declare it unto thee, wilt thou not surely put me to death? and if I give thee counsel, wilt thou not hearken unto me?
  16. So Zedekiah the king sware secretly unto Jeremiah, saying, As the LORD liveth, that made us this soul, I will not put thee to death, neither will I give thee into the hand of these men that seek thy life.
  17. Then said Jeremiah unto Zedekiah, Thus saith the LORD, the God of hosts, the God of Israel; If thou wilt assuredly go forth unto the king of Babylon's princes, then thy soul shall live, and this city shall not be burned with fire; and thou shalt live, and thine house:
  18. But if thou wilt not go forth to the king of Babylon's princes, then shall this city be given into the hand of the Chaldeans, and they shall burn it with fire, and thou shalt not escape out of their hand.
  19. And Zedekiah the king said unto Jeremiah, I am afraid of the Jews that are fallen to the Chaldeans, lest they deliver me into their hand, and they mock me.
  20. But Jeremiah said, They shall not deliver thee. Obey, I beseech thee, the voice of the LORD, which I speak unto thee: so it shall be well unto thee, and thy soul shall live.
  21. But if thou refuse to go forth, this is the word that the LORD hath shewed me:
  22. And, behold, all the women that are left in the king of Judah's house shall be brought forth to the king of Babylon's princes, and those women shall say, Thy friends have set thee on, and have prevailed against thee: thy feet are sunk in the mire, and they are turned away back.
  23. So they shall bring out all thy wives and thy children to the Chaldeans: and thou shalt not escape out of their hand, but shalt be taken by the hand of the king of Babylon: and thou shalt cause this city to be burned with fire.
  24. Then said Zedekiah unto Jeremiah, Let no man know of these words, and thou shalt not die.
  25. But if the princes hear that I have talked with thee, and they come unto thee, and say unto thee, Declare unto us now what thou hast said unto the king, hide it not from us, and we will not put thee to death; also what the king said unto thee:
  26. Then thou shalt say unto them, I presented my supplication before the king, that he would not cause me to return to Jonathan's house, to die there.
  27. Then came all the princes unto Jeremiah, and asked him: and he told them according to all these words that the king had commanded. So they left off speaking with him; for the matter was not perceived.
  28. So Jeremiah abode in the court of the prison until the day that Jerusalem was taken: and he was there when Jerusalem was taken.
