Jeremiah 44 Text (WEB)
  1. The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the Jews who lived in the land of Egypt, who lived at Migdol, and at Tahpanhes, and at Memphis, and in the country of Pathros, saying,
  2. Thus says Yahweh of Armies, the God of Israel: You have seen all the evil that I have brought on Jerusalem, and on all the cities of Judah; and behold, this day they are a desolation, and no man dwells therein,
  3. because of their wickedness which they have committed to provoke me to anger, in that they went to burn incense, [and] to serve other gods, that they didn't know, neither they, nor you, nor your fathers.
  4. However I sent to you all my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, saying, Oh, don't do this abominable thing that I hate.
  5. But they didn't listen, nor inclined their ear to turn from their wickedness, to burn no incense to other gods.
  6. Therefore my wrath and my 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 it is this day.
  7. Therefore now thus says Yahweh, the God of Armies, the God of Israel: Why do you commit great evil against your own souls, to cut off from yourselves man and woman, infant and nursing child out of the midst of Judah, to leave yourselves none remaining;
  8. in that you provoke me to anger with the works of your hands, burning incense to other gods in the land of Egypt, where you have gone to live; that you may be cut off, and that you may be a curse and a reproach among all the nations of the earth?
  9. Have you 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 committed in the land of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem?
  10. They are not humbled even to this day, neither have they feared, nor walked in my law, nor in my statutes, that I set before you and before your fathers.
  11. Therefore thus says Yahweh of Armies, the God of Israel: Behold, I will set my face against you for evil, even to cut off all Judah.
  12. I will take the remnant of Judah, that have set their faces to go into the land of Egypt to live there, and they shall all be consumed; in the land of Egypt shall they fall; they shall be consumed by the sword and by the famine; they shall die, from the least even to the greatest, by the sword and by the famine; and they shall be an object of horror, [and] an astonishment, and a curse, and a reproach.
  13. For I will punish those who dwell in the land of Egypt, as I have punished Jerusalem, by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence;
  14. so that none of the remnant of Judah, who have gone into the land of Egypt to live there, shall escape or be left, to return into the land of Judah, to which they have a desire to return to dwell there: for none shall return save such as shall escape.
  15. Then all the men who knew that their wives burned incense to other gods, and all the women who stood by, a great assembly, even all the people who lived in the land of Egypt, in Pathros, answered Jeremiah, saying,
  16. As for the word that you have spoken to us in the name of Yahweh, we will not listen to you.
  17. But we will certainly perform every word that is gone forth out of our mouth, to burn incense to the queen of the sky, and to pour out drink offerings to 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 food, and were well, and saw no evil.
  18. But since we left off burning incense to the queen of the sky, and pouring out drink offerings to her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine.
  19. When we burned incense to the queen of the sky, and poured out drink offerings to her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink offerings to her, without our husbands?
  20. Then Jeremiah said to all the people, to the men, and to the women, even to all the people who had given him an answer, saying,
  21. The incense that you burned in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, you and your fathers, your kings and your princes, and the people of the land, didn't Yahweh remember them, and didn't it come into his mind?
  22. so that Yahweh could no longer bear, because of the evil of your doings, and because of the abominations which you have committed; therefore your land has become a desolation, and an astonishment, and a curse, without inhabitant, as it is this day.
  23. Because you have burned incense, and because you have sinned against Yahweh, and have not obeyed the voice of Yahweh, nor walked in his law, nor in his statutes, nor in his testimonies; therefore this evil has happened to you, as it is this day.
  24. Moreover Jeremiah said to all the people, and to all the women, Hear the word of Yahweh, all Judah who are in the land of Egypt:
  25. Thus says Yahweh of Armies, the God of Israel, saying, You and your wives have both spoken with your mouths, and with your hands have fulfilled it, saying, We will surely perform our vows that we have vowed, to burn incense to the queen of the sky, and to pour out drink offerings to her: establish then your vows, and perform your vows.
  26. Therefore hear the word of Yahweh, all Judah who dwell in the land of Egypt: Behold, I have sworn by my great name, says Yahweh, that my name shall no more be named in the mouth of any man of Judah in all the land of Egypt, saying, As the Lord Yahweh lives.
  27. Behold, I watch over them for evil, and not for good; and all the men of Judah who are in the land of Egypt shall be consumed by the sword and by the famine, until there be an end of them.
  28. Those who escape the sword shall return out of the land of Egypt into the land of Judah, few in number; and all the remnant of Judah, who have gone into the land of Egypt to live there, shall know whose word shall stand, mine, or theirs.
  29. This shall be the sign to you, says Yahweh, that I will punish you in this place, that you may know that my words shall surely stand against you for evil:
  30. Thus says Yahweh, Behold, I will give Pharaoh Hophra king of Egypt into the hand of his enemies, and into the hand of those who seek his life; as I gave Zedekiah king of Judah into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, who was his enemy, and sought his life.
Jeremiah 44 Text (Hebrew)
  1. הדבר אשר היה אל־ירמיהו אל כל־היהודים הישבים בארץ מצרים הישבים במגדל ובתחפנחס ובנף ובארץ פתרוס לאמר׃ ס
  2. כה־אמר יהוה צבאות אלהי ישראל אתם ראיתם את כל־הרעה אשר הבאתי על־ירושלם ועל כל־ערי יהודה והנם חרבה היום הזה ואין בהם יושב׃
  3. מפני רעתמ אשר עשו להכעסני ללכת לקטר לעבד לאלהים אחרים אשר לא ידעום המה אתם ואבתיכם׃
  4. ואשלח אליכם את־כל־עבדי הנביאים השכים ושלח לאמר אל־נא תעשו את דבר־התעבה הזאת אשר שנאתי׃
  5. ולא שמעו ולא־הטו את־אזנם לשוב מרעתם לבלתי קטר לאלהים אחרים׃
  6. ותתך חמתי ואפי ותבער בערי יהודה ובחצות ירושלם ותהיינה לחרבה לשממה כיום הזה׃ ס
  7. ועתה כה־אמר יהוה אלהי צבאות אלהי ישראל למה אתם עשים רעה גדולה אל־נפשתכם להכרית לכם איש־ואשה עולל ויונק מתוך יהודה לבלתי הותיר לכם שארית׃
  8. להכעסני במעשי ידיכם לקטר לאלהים אחרים בארץ מצרים אשר־אתם באים לגור שם למען הכרית לכם ולמען היותכם לקללה ולחרפה בכל גויי הארץ׃
  9. השכחתם את־רעות אבותיכם ואת־רעות מלכי יהודה ואת רעות נשיו ואת רעתכם ואת רעת נשיכם אשר עשו בארץ יהודה ובחצות ירושלם׃
  10. לא דכאו עד היום הזה ולא יראו ולא־הלכו בתורתי ובחקתי אשר־נתתי לפניכם ולפני אבותיכם׃ ס
  11. לכן כה־אמר יהוה צבאות אלהי ישראל הנני שם פני בכם לרעה ולהכרית את־כל־יהודה׃
  12. ולקחתי את־שארית יהודה אשר־שמו פניהם לבוא ארץ־מצרים לגור שם ותמו כל בארץ מצרים יפלו בחרב ברעב יתמו מקטן ועד־גדול בחרב וברעב ימתו והיו לאלה לשמה ולקללה ולחרפה׃
  13. ופקדתי על היושבים בארץ מצרים כאשר פקדתי על־ירושלם בחרב ברעב ובדבר׃
  14. ולא יהיה פליט ושריד לשארית יהודה הבאים לגור־שם בארץ מצרים ולשוב ארץ יהודה אשר־המה מנשאים את־נפשם לשוב לשבת שם כי לא־ישובו כי אם־פלטים׃ ס
  15. ויענו את־ירמיהו כל־האנשים הידעים כי־מקטרות נשיהם לאלהים אחרים וכל־הנשים העמדות קהל גדול וכל־העם הישבים בארץ־מצרים בפתרוס לאמר׃
  16. הדבר אשר־דברת אלינו בשם יהוה איננו שמעים אליך׃
  17. כי עשה נעשה את־כל־הדבר אשר־יצא מפינו לקטר למלכת השמים והסיך־לה נסכים כאשר עשינו אנחנו ואבתינו מלכינו ושרינו בערי יהודה ובחצות ירושלם ונשבע־לחם ונהיה טובים ורעה לא ראינו׃
  18. ומן־אז חדלנו לקטר למלכת השמים והסך־לה נסכים חסרנו כל ובחרב וברעב תמנו׃
  19. וכי־אנחנו מקטרים למלכת השמים ולהסך לה נסכים המבלעדי אנשינו עשינו לה כונים להעצבה והסך לה נסכים׃ ף
  20. ויאמר ירמיהו אל־כל־העם על־הגברים ועל־הנשים ועל־כל־העם הענים אתו דבר לאמר׃
  21. הלוא את־הקטר אשר קטרתם בערי יהודה ובחצות ירושלם אתם ואבותיכם מלכיכם ושריכם ועם הארץ אתם זכר יהוה ותעלה על־לבו׃
  22. ולא־יוכל יהוה עוד לשאת מפני רע מעלליכם מפני התועבת אשר עשיתם ותהי ארצכם לחרבה ולשמה ולקללה מאין יושב כהיום הזה׃
  23. מפני אשר קטרתם ואשר חטאתם ליהוה ולא שמעתם בקול יהוה ובתרתו ובחקתיו ובעדותיו לא הלכתם על־כן קראת אתכם הרעה הזאת כיום הזה׃ ס
  24. ויאמר ירמיהו אל־כל־העם ואל כל־הנשים שמעו דבר־יהוה כל־יהודה אשר בארץ מצרים׃ ס
  25. כה־אמר יהוה־צבאות אלהי ישראל לאמר אתם ונשיכם ותדברנה בפיכם ובידיכם מלאתם לאמר עשה נעשה את־נדרינו אשר נדרנו לקטר למלכת השמים ולהסך לה נסכים הקים תקימנה את־נדריכם ועשה תעשינה את־נדריכם׃ ף
  26. לכן שמעו דבר־יהוה כל־יהודה הישבים בארץ מצרים הנני נשבעתי בשמי הגדול אמר יהוה אם־יהיה עוד שמי נקרא בפי כל־איש יהודה אמר חי־אדני יהוה בכל־ארץ מצרים׃
  27. הנני שקד עליהם לרעה ולא לטובה ותמו כל־איש יהודה אשר בארץ־מצרים בחרב וברעב עד־כלותם׃
  28. ופליטי חרב ישבון מן־ארץ מצרים ארץ יהודה מתי מספר וידעו כל־שארית יהודה הבאים לארץ־מצרים לגור שם דבר־מי יקום ממני ומהם׃
  29. וזאת־לכם האות נאם־יהוה כי־פקד אני עליכם במקום הזה למען תדעו כי קום יקומו דברי עליכם לרעה׃ ס
  30. כה אמר יהוה הנני נתן את־פרעה חפרע מלך־מצרים ביד איביו וביד מבקשי נפשו כאשר נתתי את־צדקיהו מלך־יהודה ביד נבוכדראצר מלך־בבל איבו ומבקש נפשו׃ ס
Jeremiah 44 Text (Greek)
  1. ο λογος ο γενομενος προς ιερεμιαν απασιν τοις ιουδαιοις τοις κατοικουσιν εν γη αιγυπτω και τοις καθημενοις εν μαγδωλω και εν ταφνας και εν γη παθουρης
  2. ουτως ειπεν κυριος ο θεος ισραηλ υμεις εωρακατε παντα τα κακα α επηγαγον επι ιερουσαλημ και επι τας πολεις ιουδα και ιδου εισιν ερημοι απο
  3. απο προσωπου πονηριας αυτων ης εποιησαν παραπικραναι με πορευθεντες θυμιαν θεοις ετεροις οις ουκ
  4. και απεστειλα προς υμας τους παιδας μου τους προφητας ορθρου και απεστειλα λεγων μη ποιησητε το πραγμα της μολυνσεως ταυτης ης
  5. και ουκ ηκουσαν μου και ουκ εκλιναν το ους αυτων αποστρεψαι απο των κακων αυτων προς το μη θυμιαν θεοις
  6. και εσταξεν η οργη μου και ο θυμος μου και εξεκαυθη εν πολεσιν ιουδα και εξωθεν ιερουσαλημ και εγενηθησαν εις ερημωσιν και εις αβατον ως η ημερα
  7. και νυν ουτως ειπεν κυριος παντοκρατωρ ινα τι υμεις ποιειτε κακα μεγαλα επι ψυχαις υμων εκκοψαι υμων ανθρωπον και γυναικα νηπιον και θηλαζοντα εκ μεσου ιουδα προς το μη καταλειφθηναι υμων
  8. παραπικραναι με εν τοις εργοις των χειρων υμων θυμιαν θεοις ετεροις εν γη αιγυπτω εις ην εισηλθατε ενοικειν εκει ινα εκκοπητε και ινα γενησθε εις καταραν και εις ονειδισμον εν πασιν τοις εθνεσιν της
  9. μη επιλελησθε υμεις των κακων των πατερων υμων και των κακων των βασιλεων ιουδα και των κακων των αρχοντων υμων και των κακων των γυναικων υμων ων εποιησαν εν γη ιουδα και εξωθεν
  10. και ουκ επαυσαντο εως της ημερας ταυτης και ουκ αντειχοντο των προσταγματων μου ων εδωκα κατα προσωπον των πατερων
  11. δια τουτο ουτως ειπεν κυριος ιδου εγω εφιστημι το προσωπον
  12. του απολεσαι παντας τους καταλοιπους τους εν αιγυπτω και πεσουνται εν ρομφαια και εν λιμω εκλειψουσιν απο μικρου εως μεγαλου και εσονται εις ονειδισμον και εις απωλειαν και εις
  13. και επισκεψομαι επι τους καθημενους εν γη αιγυπτω ως επεσκεψαμην επι ιερουσαλημ εν ρομφαια και εν λιμω και εν
  14. και ουκ εσται σεσωσμενος ουθεις των επιλοιπων ιουδα των παροικουντων εν γη αιγυπτω του επιστρεψαι εις γην ιουδα εφ' ην αυτοι ελπιζουσιν ταις ψυχαις αυτων του επιστρεψαι εκει ου μη επιστρεψωσιν αλλ' η
  15. και απεκριθησαν τω ιερεμια παντες οι ανδρες οι γνοντες οτι θυμιωσιν αι γυναικες αυτων θεοις ετεροις και πασαι αι γυναικες συναγωγη μεγαλη και πας ο λαος οι καθημενοι εν γη αιγυπτω εν παθουρη
  16. ο λογος ον ελαλησας προς ημας τω ονοματι κυριου ουκ ακουσομεν
  17. οτι ποιουντες ποιησομεν παντα τον λογον ος εξελευσεται εκ του στοματος ημων θυμιαν τη βασιλισση του ουρανου και σπενδειν αυτη σπονδας καθα εποιησαμεν ημεις και οι πατερες ημων και οι βασιλεις ημων και οι αρχοντες ημων εν πολεσιν ιουδα και εξωθεν ιερουσαλημ και επλησθημεν αρτων και εγενομεθα χρηστοι και κακα ουκ
  18. και ως διελιπομεν θυμιωντες τη βασιλισση του ουρανου ηλαττωθημεν παντες και εν ρομφαια και εν λιμω
  19. και οτι ημεις θυμιωμεν τη βασιλισση του ουρανου και εσπεισαμεν αυτη σπονδας μη ανευ των ανδρων ημων εποιησαμεν αυτη χαυωνας και εσπεισαμεν σπονδας
  20. και ειπεν ιερεμιας παντι τω λαω τοις δυνατοις και ταις γυναιξιν και παντι τω λαω τοις αποκριθεισιν αυτω λογους
  21. ουχι του θυμιαματος ου εθυμιασατε εν ταις πολεσιν ιουδα και εξωθεν ιερουσαλημ υμεις και οι πατερες υμων και οι βασιλεις υμων και οι αρχοντες υμων και ο λαος της γης εμνησθη κυριος και ανεβη επι την καρδιαν
  22. και ουκ ηδυνατο κυριος ετι φερειν απο προσωπου πονηριας πραγματων υμων απο των βδελυγματων ων εποιησατε και εγενηθη η γη υμων εις ερημωσιν και εις αβατον και εις αραν ως εν τη ημερα
  23. απο προσωπου ων εθυμιατε και ων ημαρτετε τω κυριω και ουκ ηκουσατε της φωνης κυριου και εν τοις προσταγμασιν αυτου και εν τω νομω αυτου και εν τοις μαρτυριοις αυτου ουκ επορευθητε και επελαβετο υμων τα κακα
  24. και ειπεν ιερεμιας τω λαω και ταις γυναιξιν ακουσατε τον λογον
  25. ουτως ειπεν κυριος ο θεος ισραηλ υμεις γυναικες τω στοματι υμων ελαλησατε και ταις χερσιν υμων επληρωσατε λεγουσαι ποιουσαι ποιησομεν τας ομολογιας ημων ας ωμολογησαμεν θυμιαν τη βασιλισση του ουρανου και σπενδειν αυτη σπονδας εμμεινασαι ενεμεινατε ταις ομολογιαις υμων και ποιουσαι
  26. δια τουτο ακουσατε λογον κυριου πας ιουδα οι καθημενοι εν γη αιγυπτω ιδου ωμοσα τω ονοματι μου τω μεγαλω ειπεν κυριος εαν γενηται ετι ονομα μου εν τω στοματι παντος ιουδα ειπειν ζη κυριος κυριος επι παση γη
  27. οτι ιδου εγω εγρηγορα επ' αυτους του κακωσαι αυτους και ουκ αγαθωσαι και εκλειψουσιν πας ιουδα οι κατοικουντες εν γη αιγυπτω εν ρομφαια και εν λιμω εως αν
  28. και οι σεσωσμενοι απο ρομφαιας επιστρεψουσιν εις γην ιουδα ολιγοι αριθμω και γνωσονται οι καταλοιποι ιουδα οι κατασταντες εν γη αιγυπτω κατοικησαι εκει λογος τινος
  29. και τουτο υμιν το σημειον οτι επισκεψομαι εγω εφ' υμας εις
  30. ουτως ειπεν κυριος ιδου εγω διδωμι τον ουαφρη βασιλεα αιγυπτου εις χειρας εχθρου αυτου και εις χειρας ζητουντων την ψυχην αυτου καθα εδωκα τον σεδεκιαν βασιλεα ιουδα εις χειρας ναβουχοδονοσορ βασιλεως βαβυλωνος εχθρου αυτου και ζητουντος την ψυχην
Jeremiah 44 Text (Latin)
  1. Verbum quod factum est per Jeremiam ad omnes Judæos qui habitabant in terra Ægypti, habitantes in Magdalo, et in Taphnis, et in Memphis, et in terra Phatures, dicens :
  2. Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël : Vos vidistis omne malum istud quod adduxi super Jerusalem, et super omnes urbes Juda : et ecce desertæ sunt hodie, et non est in eis habitator,
  3. propter malitiam quam fecerunt ut me ad iracundiam provocarent, et irent ut sacrificarent, et colerent deos alienos quos nesciebant, et illi, et vos, et patres vestri.
  4. Et misi ad vos omnes servos meos prophetas, de nocte consurgens, mittensque et dicens : Nolite facere verbum abominationis hujuscemodi, quam odivi.
  5. Et non audierunt, nec inclinaverunt aurem suam, ut converterentur a malis suis, et non sacrificarent diis alienis.
  6. Et conflata est indignatio mea et furor meus, et succensa est in civitatibus Juda, et in plateis Jerusalem, et versæ sunt in solitudinem et vastitatem secundum diem hanc.
  7. Et nunc hæc dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël : Quare vos facitis malum grande hoc contra animas vestras, ut intereat ex vobis vir et mulier, parvulus et lactens, de medio Judæ, nec relinquatur vobis quidquam residuum :
  8. provocantes me in operibus manuum vestrarum, sacrificando diis alienis in terra Ægypti, in quam ingressi estis ut habitetis ibi et dispereatis, et sitis in maledictionem et in opprobrium cunctis gentibus terræ ?
  9. Numquid obliti estis mala patrum vestrorum, et mala regum Juda, et mala uxorum ejus, et mala vestra, et mala uxorum vestrarum, quæ fecerunt in terra Juda, et in regionibus Jerusalem ?
  10. Non sunt mundati usque ad diem hanc : et non timuerunt, et non ambulaverunt in lege Domini, et in præceptis meis, quæ dedi coram vobis et coram patribus vestris.
  11. Ideo hæc dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël : Ecce ego ponam faciem meam in vobis in malum : et disperdam omnem Judam.
  12. Et assumam reliquias Judæ, qui posuerunt facies suas ut ingrederentur terram Ægypti, et habitarent ibi, et consumentur omnes in terra Ægypti : cadent in gladio, et in fame, et consumentur a minimo usque ad maximum : in gladio et in fame morientur, et erunt in jusjurandum, et in miraculum, et in maledictionem, et in opprobrium.
  13. Et visitabo super habitatores terræ Ægypti, sicut visitavi super Jerusalem, in gladio, et fame, et peste :
  14. et non erit qui effugiat, et sit residuus de reliquis Judæorum qui vadunt ut peregrinentur in terra Ægypti, et revertantur in terram Juda, ad quam ipsi elevant animas suas ut revertantur, et habitent ibi : non revertentur, nisi qui fugerint.
  15. Responderunt autem Jeremiæ omnes viri scientes quod sacrificarent uxores eorum diis alienis, et universæ mulieres quarum stabat multitudo grandis, et omnis populus habitantium in terra Ægypti in Phatures, dicentes :
  16. Sermonem quem locutus es ad nos in nomine Domini, non audiemus ex te :
  17. sed facientes faciemus omne verbum quod egredietur de ore nostro, ut sacrificemus reginæ cæli, et libemus ei libamina, sicut fecimus nos et patres nostri, reges nostri et principes nostri, in urbibus Juda, et in plateis Jerusalem : et saturati sumus panibus, et bene nobis erat, malumque non vidimus.
  18. Ex eo autem tempore quo cessavimus sacrificare reginæ cæli, et libare ei libamina, indigemus omnibus, et gladio et fame consumpti sumus.
  19. Quod si nos sacrificamus reginæ cæli, et libamus ei libamina, numquid sine viris nostris fecimus ei placentas ad colendum eam, et libandum ei libamina ?
  20. Et dixit Jeremias ad omnem populum, adversum viros, et adversum mulieres, et adversum universam plebem, qui responderant ei verbum, dicens :
  21. Numquid non sacrificium quod sacrificastis in civitatibus Juda, et in plateis Jerusalem, vos et patres vestri, reges vestri, et principes vestri, et populus terræ, horum recordatus est Dominus, et ascendit super cor ejus ?
  22. Et 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 hæc.
  23. Propterea quod sacrificaveritis idolis, et peccaveritis Domino, et non audieritis vocem Domini, et in lege, et in præceptis, et in testimoniis ejus non ambulaveritis, idcirco evenerunt vobis mala hæc, sicut est dies hæc.
  24. Dixit autem Jeremias ad omnem populum, et ad universas mulieres : Audite verbum Domini, omnis Juda, qui estis in terra Ægypti.
  25. Hæc inquit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël, dicens : Vos et uxores vestræ, locuti estis ore vestro, et manibus vestris implestis, dicentes : Faciamus vota nostra, quæ vovimus, ut sacrificemus reginæ cæli, et libemus ei libamina. Implestis vota vestra, et opere perpetrastis ea.
  26. Ideo audite verbum Domini, omnis Juda, qui habitatis in terra Ægypti : Ecce ego juravi in nomine meo magno, ait Dominus, quia nequaquam ultra vocabitur nomen meum ex ore omnis viri Judæi, dicentis : Vivit Dominus Deus, in omni terra Ægypti.
  27. Ecce ego vigilabo super eos in malum, et non in bonum : et consumentur omnes viri Juda qui sunt in terra Ægypti gladio et fame, donec penitus consumantur.
  28. Et qui fugerint gladium, revertentur de terra Ægypti in terram Juda viri pauci : et scient omnes reliquiæ Juda, ingredientium terram Ægypti ut habitent ibi, cujus sermo compleatur, meus an illorum.
  29. Et hoc vobis signum, ait Dominus, quod visitem ego super vos in loco isto, ut sciatis quia vere complebuntur sermones mei contra vos in malum :
  30. hæc dicit Dominus : Ecce ego tradam Pharaonem Ephree regem Ægypti, in manu inimicorum ejus, et in manu quærentium animam illius, sicut tradidi Sedeciam regem Juda in manu Nabuchodonosor regis Babylonis, inimici sui, et quærentis animam ejus.
Jeremiah 44 Text (KJV)
  1. The 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,
  2. Thus 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,
  3. Because 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.
  4. Howbeit I sent unto you all my servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, saying, Oh, do not this abominable thing that I hate.
  5. But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear to turn from their wickedness, to burn no incense unto other gods.
  6. Wherefore 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.
  7. Therefore now this 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;
  8. In 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?
  9. Have 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?
  10. They 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.
  11. Therefore 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.
  12. And 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.
  13. For 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:
  14. So 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.
  15. Then 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,
  16. As for the word that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of the LORD, we will not hearken unto thee.
  17. But 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.
  18. But 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.
  19. And 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?
  20. Then 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,
  21. The 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?
  22. So 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.
  23. Because 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.
  24. Moreover 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:
  25. Thus 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.
  26. Therefore 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.
  27. Behold, 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.
  28. Yet 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 theirs.
  29. And 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:
  30. Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will give Pharaoh-hophra 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.
Jeremiah 44
