Jeremiah 23 Text (WEB)
  1. Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! says Yahweh.
  2. Therefore thus says Yahweh, the God of Israel, against the shepherds who feed my people: You have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them; behold, I will visit on you the evil of your doings, says Yahweh.
  3. I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all the countries where I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and multiply.
  4. I will set up shepherds over them, who shall feed them; and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall any be lacking, says Yahweh.
  5. Behold, the days come, says Yahweh, that I will raise to David a righteous Branch, and he shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land.
  6. In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely; and this is his name by which he shall be called: Yahweh our righteousness.
  7. Therefore, behold, the days come, says Yahweh, that they shall no more say, As Yahweh lives, who brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;
  8. but, As Yahweh lives, who brought up and who led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all the countries where I had driven them. They shall dwell in their own land.
  9. Concerning the prophets. My heart within me is broken, all my bones shake; I am like a drunken man, and like a man whom wine has overcome, because of Yahweh, and because of his holy words.
  10. For the land is full of adulterers; for because of swearing the land mourns; the pastures of the wilderness are dried up. Their course is evil, and their might is not right;
  11. for both prophet and priest are profane; yes, in my house have I found their wickedness, says Yahweh.
  12. Therefore their way shall be to them as slippery places in the darkness: they shall be driven on, and fall therein; for I will bring evil on them, even the year of their visitation, says Yahweh.
  13. I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied by Baal, and caused my people Israel to err.
  14. In the prophets of Jerusalem also I have seen a horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies; and they strengthen the hands of evildoers, so that none does return from his wickedness: they are all of them become to me as Sodom, and its inhabitants as Gomorrah.
  15. Therefore thus says Yahweh of Armies concerning the prophets: Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall; for from the prophets of Jerusalem is ungodliness gone forth into all the land.
  16. Thus says Yahweh of Armies, Don't listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you: they teach you vanity; they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of Yahweh.
  17. They say continually to those who despise me, Yahweh has said, You shall have peace; and to everyone who walks in the stubbornness of his own heart they say, No evil shall come on you.
  18. For who has stood in the council of Yahweh, that he should perceive and hear his word? who has marked my word, and heard it?
  19. Behold, the storm of Yahweh, [even his] wrath, is gone forth, yes, a whirling storm: it shall burst on the head of the wicked.
  20. The anger of Yahweh shall not return, until he has executed, and until he have performed the intents of his heart: in the latter days you shall understand it perfectly.
  21. I sent not these prophets, yet they ran: I didn't speak to them, yet they prophesied.
  22. But if they had stood in my council, then had they caused my people to hear my words, and had turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.
  23. Am I a God at hand, says Yahweh, and not a God afar off?
  24. Can any hide himself in secret places so that I shall not see him? says Yahweh. Don't I fill heaven and earth? says Yahweh.
  25. I have heard what the prophets have said, who prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.
  26. How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies, even the prophets of the deceit of their own heart?
  27. who think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbor, as their fathers forgot my name for Baal.
  28. The prophet who has a dream, let him tell a dream; and he who has my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the straw to the wheat? says Yahweh.
  29. Isn't my word like fire? says Yahweh; and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?
  30. Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, says Yahweh, who steal my words everyone from his neighbor.
  31. Behold, I am against the prophets, says Yahweh, who use their tongues, and say, He says.
  32. Behold, I am against those who prophesy lying dreams, says Yahweh, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their vain boasting: yet I didn't send them, nor commanded them; neither do they profit this people at all, says Yahweh.
  33. When this people, or the prophet, or a priest, shall ask you, saying, What is the burden of Yahweh? Then you shall tell them, What burden! I will cast you off, says Yahweh.
  34. As for the prophet, and the priest, and the people, who shall say, The burden of Yahweh, I will even punish that man and his house.
  35. You shall say everyone to his neighbor, and everyone to his brother, What has Yahweh answered? and, What has Yahweh spoken?
  36. You shall mention the burden of Yahweh no more: for every man's own word shall be his burden; for you have perverted the words of the living God, of Yahweh of Armies our God.
  37. You shall say to the prophet, What has Yahweh answered you? and, What has Yahweh spoken?
  38. But if you say, The burden of Yahweh; therefore thus says Yahweh: Because you say this word, The burden of Yahweh, and I have sent to you, saying, You shall not say, The burden of Yahweh;
  39. therefore, behold, I will utterly forget you, and I will cast you off, and the city that I gave to you and to your fathers, away from my presence:
  40. and I will bring an everlasting reproach on you, and a perpetual shame, which shall not be forgotten.
Jeremiah 23 Text (Hebrew)
  1. הוי רעים מאבדים ומפצים את־צאן מרעיתי נאם־יהוה׃
  2. לכן כה־אמר יהוה אלהי ישראל על־הרעים הרעים את־עמי אתם הפצתם את־צאני ותדחום ולא פקדתם אתם הנני פקד עליכם את־רע מעלליכם נאם־יהוה׃
  3. ואני אקבץ את־שארית צאני מכל הארצות אשר־הדחתי אתם שם והשבתי אתהן על־נוהן ופרו ורבו׃
  4. והקמתי עליהם רעים ורעום ולא־ייראו עוד ולא־יחתו ולא יפקדו נאם־יהוה׃ ס
  5. הנה ימים באים נאם־יהוה והקמתי לדוד צמח צדיק ומלך מלך והשכיל ועשה משפט וצדקה בארץ׃
  6. בימיו תושע יהודה וישראל ישכן לבטח וזה־שמו אשר־יקראו יהוה צדקנו׃ ס
  7. לכן הנה־ימים באים נאם־יהוה ולא־יאמרו עוד חי־יהוה אשר העלה את־בני ישראל מארץ מצרים׃
  8. כי אם־חי־יהוה אשר העלה ואשר הביא את־זרע בית ישראל מארץ צפונה ומכל הארצות אשר הדחתים שם וישבו על־אדמתם׃ ס
  9. לנבאים נשבר לבי בקרבי רחפו כל־עצמותי הייתי כאיש שכור וכגבר עברו יין מפני יהוה ומפני דברי קדשו׃
  10. כי מנאפים מלאה הארץ כי־מפני אלה אבלה הארץ יבשו נאות מדבר ותהי מרוצתם רעה וגבורתם לא־כן׃
  11. כי־גם־נביא גם־כהן חנפו גם־בביתי מצאתי רעתם נאם־יהוה׃
  12. לכן יהיה דרכם להם כחלקלקות באפלה ידחו ונפלו בה כי־אביא עליהם רעה שנת פקדתם נאם־יהוה׃
  13. ובנביאי שמרון ראיתי תפלה הנבאו בבעל ויתעו את־עמי את־ישראל׃ ס
  14. ובנבאי ירושלם ראיתי שערורה נאוף והלך בשקר וחזקו ידי מרעים לבלתי־שבו איש מרעתו היו־לי כלם כסדם וישביה כעמרה׃ ס
  15. לכן כה־אמר יהוה צבאות על־הנבאים הנני מאכיל אותם לענה והשקתים מי־ראש כי מאת נביאי ירושלם יצאה חנפה לכל־הארץ׃ ף
  16. כה־אמר יהוה צבאות אל־תשמעו על־דברי הנבאים הנבאים לכם מהבלים המה אתכם חזון לבם ידברו לא מפי יהוה׃
  17. אמרים אמור למנאצי דבר יהוה שלום יהיה לכם וכל הלך בשררות לבו אמרו לא־תבוא עליכם רעה׃
  18. כי מי עמד בסוד יהוה וירא וישמע את־דברו מי־הקשיב וישמע׃ ס
  19. הנה סערת יהוה חמה יצאה וסער מתחולל על ראש רשעים יחול׃
  20. לא ישוב אף־יהוה עד־עשתו ועד־הקימו מזמות לבו באחרית הימים תתבוננו בה בינה׃
  21. לא־שלחתי את־הנבאים והם רצו לא־דברתי אליהם והם נבאו׃
  22. ואם־עמדו בסודי וישמעו דברי את־עמי וישבום מדרכם הרע ומרע מעלליהם׃ ס
  23. האלהי מקרב אני נאם־יהוה ולא אלהי מרחק׃
  24. אם־יסתר איש במסתרים ואני לא־אראנו נאם־יהוה הלוא את־השמים ואת־הארץ אני מלא נאם־יהוה׃
  25. שמעתי את אשר־אמרו הנבאים הנבאים בשמי שקר לאמר חלמתי חלמתי׃
  26. עד־מתי היש בלב הנבאים נבאי השקר ונביאי תרמת לבם׃
  27. החשבים להשכיח את־עמי שמי בחלומתם אשר יספרו איש לרעהו כאשר שכחו אבותם את־שמי בבעל׃
  28. הנביא אשר־אתו חלום יספר חלום ואשר דברי אתו ידבר דברי אמת מה־לתבן את־הבר נאם־יהוה׃
  29. הלוא כה דברי כאש נאם־יהוה וכפטיש יפץץ סלע׃ ס
  30. לכן הנני על־הנבאים נאם־יהוה מגנבי דברי איש מאת רעהו׃
  31. הנני על־הנביאם נאם־יהוה הלקחים לשונם וינאמו נאם׃
  32. הנני על־נבאי חלמות שקר נאם־יהוה ויספרום ויתעו את־עמי בשקריהם ובפחזותם ואנכי לא־שלחתים ולא צויתים והועיל לא־יועילו לעם־הזה נאם־יהוה׃
  33. וכי־ישאלך העם הזה או־הנביא או־כהן לאמר מה־משא יהוה ואמרת אליהם את־מה־משא ונטשתי אתכם נאם־יהוה׃
  34. והנביא והכהן והעם אשר יאמר משא יהוה ופקדתי על־האיש ההוא ועל־ביתו׃
  35. כה תאמרו איש על־רעהו ואיש אל־אחיו מה־ענה יהוה ומה־דבר יהוה׃
  36. ומשא יהוה לא תזכרו־עוד כי המשא יהיה לאיש דברו והפכתם את־דברי אלהים חיים יהוה צבאות אלהינו׃
  37. כה תאמר אל־הנביא מה־ענך יהוה ומה־דבר יהוה׃
  38. ואם־משא יהוה תאמרו לכן כה אמר יהוה יען אמרכם את־הדבר הזה משא יהוה ואשלח אליכם לאמר לא תאמרו משא יהוה׃
  39. לכן הנני ונשיתי אתכם נשא ונטשתי אתכם ואת־העיר אשר נתתי לכם ולאבותיכם מעל פני׃
  40. ונתתי עליכם חרפת עולם וכלמות עולם אשר לא תשכח׃ ס
Jeremiah 23 Text (Greek)
  1. ω οι ποιμενες οι διασκορπιζοντες και απολλυοντες τα προβατα της νομης
  2. δια τουτο ταδε λεγει κυριος επι τους ποιμαινοντας τον λαον μου υμεις διεσκορπισατε τα προβατα μου και εξωσατε αυτα και ουκ επεσκεψασθε αυτα ιδου εγω εκδικω εφ' υμας κατα τα πονηρα επιτηδευματα
  3. και εγω εισδεξομαι τους καταλοιπους του λαου μου απο πασης της γης ου εξωσα αυτους εκει και καταστησω αυτους εις την νομην αυτων και αυξηθησονται και
  4. και αναστησω αυτοις ποιμενας οι ποιμανουσιν αυτους και ου φοβηθησονται ετι ουδε πτοηθησονται λεγει
  5. ιδου ημεραι ερχονται λεγει κυριος και αναστησω τω δαυιδ ανατολην δικαιαν και βασιλευσει βασιλευς και συνησει και ποιησει κριμα και δικαιοσυνην επι της
  6. εν ταις ημεραις αυτου σωθησεται ιουδας και ισραηλ κατασκηνωσει πεποιθως και τουτο το ονομα αυτου ο καλεσει αυτον κυριος
  7. δια τουτο ιδου ημεραι ερχονται λεγει κυριος και ουκ ερουσιν ετι ζη κυριος ος ανηγαγεν τον οικον ισραηλ εκ γης
  8. αλλα ζη κυριος ος συνηγαγεν απαν το σπερμα ισραηλ απο γης βορρα και απο πασων των χωρων ου εξωσεν αυτους εκει και απεκατεστησεν αυτους εις την γην
  9. εν τοις προφηταις συνετριβη η καρδια μου εν εμοι εσαλευθη παντα τα οστα μου εγενηθην ως ανηρ συντετριμμενος και ως ανθρωπος συνεχομενος απο οινου απο προσωπου κυριου και απο προσωπου ευπρεπειας δοξης
  10. οτι απο προσωπου τουτων επενθησεν η γη εξηρανθησαν αι νομαι της ερημου και εγενετο ο δρομος αυτων πονηρος και η ισχυς αυτων ουχ
  11. οτι ιερευς και προφητης εμολυνθησαν και εν τω οικω μου ειδον πονηριας
  12. δια τουτο γενεσθω η οδος αυτων αυτοις εις ολισθημα εν γνοφω και υποσκελισθησονται και πεσουνται εν αυτη διοτι επαξω επ' αυτους κακα εν ενιαυτω επισκεψεως αυτων φησιν
  13. και εν τοις προφηταις σαμαρειας ειδον ανομηματα επροφητευσαν δια της βααλ και επλανησαν τον λαον μου
  14. και εν τοις προφηταις ιερουσαλημ εωρακα φρικτα μοιχωμενους και πορευομενους εν ψευδεσι και αντιλαμβανομενους χειρων πονηρων του μη αποστραφηναι εκαστον απο της οδου αυτου της πονηρας εγενηθησαν μοι παντες ως σοδομα και οι κατοικουντες αυτην ωσπερ
  15. δια τουτο ταδε λεγει κυριος ιδου εγω ψωμιω αυτους οδυνην και ποτιω αυτους υδωρ πικρον οτι απο των προφητων ιερουσαλημ εξηλθεν μολυσμος παση τη
  16. ουτως λεγει κυριος παντοκρατωρ μη ακουετε τους λογους των προφητων οτι ματαιουσιν εαυτοις ορασιν απο καρδιας αυτων λαλουσιν και ουκ απο στοματος
  17. λεγουσιν τοις απωθουμενοις τον λογον κυριου ειρηνη εσται υμιν και πασιν τοις πορευομενοις τοις θελημασιν αυτων παντι τω πορευομενω πλανη καρδιας αυτου ειπαν ουχ ηξει επι σε
  18. οτι τις εστη εν υποστηματι κυριου και ειδεν τον λογον αυτου τις ενωτισατο και
  19. ιδου σεισμος παρα κυριου και οργη εκπορευεται εις συσσεισμον συστρεφομενη επι τους ασεβεις
  20. και ουκετι αποστρεψει ο θυμος κυριου εως αν ποιηση αυτο και εως αν αναστηση αυτο απο εγχειρηματος καρδιας αυτου επ' εσχατου των ημερων νοησουσιν
  21. ουκ απεστελλον τους προφητας και αυτοι ετρεχον ουκ ελαλησα προς αυτους και αυτοι
  22. και ει εστησαν εν τη υποστασει μου και εισηκουσαν των λογων μου και τον λαον μου αν απεστρεφον αυτους απο των πονηρων επιτηδευματων
  23. θεος εγγιζων εγω ειμι λεγει κυριος και ουχι θεος
  24. ει κρυβησεται ανθρωπος εν κρυφαιοις και εγω ουκ οψομαι αυτον μη ουχι τον ουρανον και την γην εγω πληρω λεγει
  25. ηκουσα α λαλουσιν οι προφηται α προφητευουσιν επι τω ονοματι μου ψευδη λεγοντες ηνυπνιασαμην
  26. εως ποτε εσται εν καρδια των προφητων των προφητευοντων ψευδη και εν τω προφητευειν αυτους τα θεληματα καρδιας
  27. των λογιζομενων του επιλαθεσθαι του νομου μου εν τοις ενυπνιοις αυτων α διηγουντο εκαστος τω πλησιον αυτου καθαπερ επελαθοντο οι πατερες αυτων του ονοματος μου εν τη
  28. ο προφητης εν ω το ενυπνιον εστιν διηγησασθω το ενυπνιον αυτου και εν ω ο λογος μου προς αυτον διηγησασθω τον λογον μου επ' αληθειας τι το αχυρον προς τον σιτον ουτως οι λογοι μου λεγει
  29. ουχι οι λογοι μου ωσπερ πυρ φλεγον λεγει κυριος και ως πελυξ κοπτων
  30. δια τουτο ιδου εγω προς τους προφητας λεγει κυριος ο θεος τους κλεπτοντας τους λογους μου εκαστος παρα του πλησιον
  31. ιδου εγω προς τους προφητας τους εκβαλλοντας προφητειας γλωσσης και νυσταζοντας νυσταγμον
  32. ιδου εγω προς τους προφητας τους προφητευοντας ενυπνια ψευδη και διηγουντο αυτα και επλανησαν τον λαον μου εν τοις ψευδεσιν αυτων και εν τοις πλανοις αυτων και εγω ουκ απεστειλα αυτους και ουκ ενετειλαμην αυτοις και ωφελειαν ουκ ωφελησουσιν τον λαον
  33. και εαν ερωτησωσι σε ο λαος ουτος η ιερευς η προφητης λεγων τι το λημμα κυριου και ερεις αυτοις υμεις εστε το λημμα και ραξω υμας λεγει
  34. και ο προφητης και ο ιερευς και ο λαος οι αν ειπωσιν λημμα κυριου και εκδικησω τον ανθρωπον εκεινον και τον οικον
  35. οτι ουτως ερειτε εκαστος προς τον πλησιον αυτου και εκαστος προς τον αδελφον αυτου τι απεκριθη κυριος και τι ελαλησεν
  36. και λημμα κυριου μη ονομαζετε ετι οτι το λημμα τω ανθρωπω εσται ο λογος
  37. και δια τι ελαλησεν κυριος ο θεος
  38. δια τουτο ταδε λεγει κυριος ο θεος ανθ' ων ειπατε τον λογον τουτον λημμα κυριου και απεστειλα προς υμας λεγων ουκ ερειτε λημμα
  39. δια τουτο ιδου εγω λαμβανω και ρασσω υμας και την πολιν ην εδωκα υμιν και τοις πατρασιν
  40. και δωσω εφ' υμας ονειδισμον αιωνιον και ατιμιαν αιωνιον ητις ουκ
Jeremiah 23 Text (Latin)
  1. Væ pastoribus qui disperdunt et dilacerant gregem pascuæ meæ ! dicit Dominus.
  2. Ideo hæc dicit Dominus Deus Israël ad pastores qui pascunt populum meum : Vos dispersistis gregem meum, et ejecistis eos, et non visitastis eos : ecce ego visitabo super vos malitiam studiorum vestrorum, ait Dominus.
  3. Et ego congregabo reliquias gregis mei de omnibus terris ad quas ejecero eos illuc : et convertam eos ad rura sua, et crescent et multiplicabuntur.
  4. Et suscitabo super eos pastores, et pascent eos : non formidabunt ultra, et non pavebunt, et nullus quæretur ex numero, dicit Dominus.
  5. Ecce dies veniunt, dicit Dominus, et suscitabo David germen justum : et regnabit rex, et sapiens erit, et faciet judicium et justitiam in terra.
  6. In diebus illis salvabitur Juda, et Israël habitabit confidenter : et hoc est nomen quod vocabunt eum : Dominus justus noster.
  7. Propter hoc ecce dies veniunt, dicit Dominus, et non dicent ultra : Vivit Domnus, qui eduxit filios Israël de terra Ægypti,
  8. sed : Vivit Dominus, qui eduxit et adduxit semen domus Israël de terra aquilonis, et de cunctis terris ad quas ejeceram eos illuc, et habitabunt in terra sua.
  9. Ad prophetas : Contritum est cor meum in medio mei, contremuerunt omnia ossa mea : factus sum quasi vir ebrius, et quasi homo madidus a vino, a facie Domini, et a facie verborum sanctorum ejus.
  10. Quia adulteris repleta est terra, quia a facie maledictionis luxit terra, arefacta sunt arva deserti : factus est cursus eorum malus : et fortitudo eorum dissimilis.
  11. Propheta namque et sacerdos polluti sunt, et in domo mea inveni malum eorum, ait Dominus.
  12. Idcirco via eorum erit quasi lubricum in tenebris : impellentur enim, et corruent in ea : afferam enim super eos mala, annum visitationis eorum, ait Dominus.
  13. Et in prophetis Samariæ vidi fatuitatem : prophetabunt in Baal, et decipiebant populum meum Israël.
  14. Et in prophetis Jerusalem vidi similitudinem adulterantium, et iter mendacii : et confortaverunt manus pessimorum, ut non converteretur unusquisque a malitia sua : facti sunt mihi omnes ut Sodoma, et habitatores ejus quasi Gomorrha.
  15. Propterea hæc dicit Dominus exercituum ad prophetas : Ecce ego cibabo eos absinthio, et potabo eos felle : a prophetis enim Jerusalem egressa est pollutio super omnem terram.
  16. Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum : Nolite audire verba prophetarum qui prophetant vobis, et decipiunt vos : visionem cordis sui loquuntur, non de ore Domini.
  17. Dicunt his qui blasphemant me : Locutus est Dominus : Pax erit vobis : et omni qui ambulat in pravitate cordis sui dixerunt : Non veniet super vos malum.
  18. Quis enim affuit in consilio Domini, et vidit, et audivit sermonem ejus ? Quis consideravit verbum illius, et audivit ?
  19. Ecce turbo Dominicæ indignationis egredietur, et tempestas erumpens super caput impiorum veniet.
  20. Non revertetur furor Domini, usque dum faciat et usque dum compleat cogitationem cordis sui : in novissimis diebus intelligetis consilium ejus.
  21. Non mittebam prophetas, et ipsi currebant : non loquebar ad eos, et ipsi prophetabant.
  22. Si stetissent in consilio meo, et nota fecissent verba mea populo meo, avertissem utique eos a via sua mala et a cogitationibus suis pessimis.
  23. Putasne Deus e vicino ego sum, dicit Dominus, et non Deus de longe ?
  24. Si occultabitur vir in absconditis, et ego non videbo eum ? dicit Dominus. Numquid non cælum et terram ego impleo ? dicit Dominus.
  25. Audivi quæ dixerunt prophetæ prophetantes in nomine meo mendacium, atque dicentes : Somniavi, somniavi.
  26. Usquequo istud est in corde prophetarum vaticinantium mendacium, et prophetantium seductiones cordis sui ?
  27. Qui volunt facere ut obliviscatur populus meus nominis mei, propter somnia eorum quæ narrat unusquisque ad proximum suum, sicut obliti sunt patres eorum nominis mei propter Baal ?
  28. Propheta qui habet somnium, narret somnium : et qui habet sermonem meum, loquatur sermonem meum vere. Quid paleis ad triticum ? dicit Dominus.
  29. Numquid non verba mea sunt quasi ignis, dicit Dominus, et quasi malleus conterens petram ?
  30. Propterea ecce ego ad prophetas, ait Dominus, qui furantur verba mea unusquisque a proximo suo.
  31. Ecce ego ad prophetas, ait Dominus, qui assumunt linguas suas, et aiunt : Dicit Dominus.
  32. Ecce ego ad prophetas somniantes mendacium, ait Dominus : qui narraverunt ea, et seduxerunt populum meum in mendacio suo et in miraculis suis, cum ego non misissem eos, nec mandassem eis, qui nihil profuerunt populo huic, dicit Dominus.
  33. Si igitur interrogaverit te populus iste, vel propheta, aut sacerdos, dicens : Quod est onus Domini ? dices ad eos : Vos estis onus : projiciam quippe vos, dicit Dominus.
  34. Et propheta, et sacerdos, et populus qui dicit : Onus Domini : visitabo super virum illum et super domum ejus.
  35. Hæc dicetis unusquisque ad proximum, et ad fratrem suum : Quid respondit Dominus ? et quid locutus est Dominus ?
  36. Et onus Domini ultra non memorabitur : quia onus erit unicuique sermo suus, et pervertistis verba Dei viventis, Domini exercituum, Dei nostri.
  37. Hæc dices ad prophetam : Quid respondit tibi Dominus ? et quid locutus est Dominus ?
  38. Si autem onus Domini dixeritis, propter hoc hæc dicit Dominus : Quia dixistis sermonem istum : Onus Domini, et misi ad vos dicens : Nolite dicere : Onus Domini :
  39. propterea ecce ego tollam vos portans, et derelinquam vos, et civitatem quam dedi vobis et patribus vestris, a facie mea :
  40. et dabo vos in opprobrium sempiternum, et in ignominiam æternam, quæ numquam oblivione delebitur.
Jeremiah 23 Text (KJV)
  1. Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD.
  2. Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the LORD.
  3. And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.
  4. And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the LORD.
  5. Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
  6. In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  7. Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;
  8. But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.
  9. Mine heart within me is broken because of the prophets; all my bones shake; I am like a drunken man, and like a man whom wine hath overcome, because of the LORD, and because of the words of his holiness.
  10. For the land is full of adulterers; for because of swearing the land mourneth; the pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up, and their course is evil, and their force is not right.
  11. For both prophet and priest are profane; yea, in my house have I found their wickedness, saith the LORD.
  12. Wherefore their way shall be unto them as slippery ways in the darkness: they shall be driven on, and fall therein: for I will bring evil upon them, even the year of their visitation, saith the LORD.
  13. And I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied in Baal, and caused my people Israel to err.
  14. I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.
  15. Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets; Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall: for from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness gone forth into all the land.
  16. Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD.
  17. They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you.
  18. For who hath stood in the counsel of the LORD, and hath perceived and heard his word? who hath marked his word, and heard it?
  19. Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.
  20. The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly.
  21. I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.
  22. But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.
  23. Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off?
  24. Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.
  25. I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.
  26. How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;
  27. Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal.
  28. The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the LORD.
  29. Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?
  30. Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbour.
  31. Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use their tongues, and say, He saith.
  32. Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the LORD.
  33. And when this people, or the prophet, or a priest, shall ask thee, saying, What is the burden of the LORD? thou shalt then say unto them, What burden? I will even forsake you, saith the LORD.
  34. And as for the prophet, and the priest, and the people, that shall say, The burden of the LORD, I will even punish that man and his house.
  35. Thus shall ye say every one to his neighbour, and every one to his brother, What hath the LORD answered? and, What hath the LORD spoken?
  36. And the burden of the LORD shall ye mention no more: for every man's word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts our God.
  37. Thus shalt thou say to the prophet, What hath the LORD answered thee? and, What hath the LORD spoken?
  38. But since ye say, The burden of the LORD; therefore thus saith the LORD; Because ye say this word, The burden of the LORD, and I have sent unto you, saying, Ye shall not say, The burden of the LORD;
  39. Therefore, behold, I, even I, will utterly forget you, and I will forsake you, and the city that I gave you and your fathers, and cast you out of my presence:
  40. And I will bring an everlasting reproach upon you, and a perpetual shame, which shall not be forgotten.
Jeremiah 23
